Our offense failed to get a first down at a crucial moment in the game. Special teams failed to give us favorable field position as well. San Fran's defense was clutch when it mattered most to our offense and we couldn't beat them. That could have been a statement. My hope is we grow as a team to the point that when put in this situation again that we rise to the occasion rather than fail. We shall see. I never blame one guy because football is the ultimate team sport.

What an awesome, awesome post! That is exactly the way I feel.

I don't want to pretend we are the best team in the NFL. I want our team to be the best team in the NFL. We lost our stake to that title back in 2011, and it has been eluding us ever since. Just saying we are the best doesn't make it so.

Ross? Get rid of that guy. I mean, really. He sucks. Pure and simple. What has he done to help us win games?

M D Jennings? Why? Why is he in our secondary? Can't we do better?

Those two players alone were big trouble for us in trying to overtake a strong SF team on their home turf. We've got some real proving to do, and some great opportunities to better ourselves and our team in the weeks ahead.

Also, not to be alarmist (too late, I know [laughing] ), as we were a backup S, maybe another DB and a not so good returner away from pulling that game out!

If this is about those stupid "power rankings", they mean less than nothing.

The Niners beat us fair and square - well, almost. That makes them the better team by performance the first week. If the game was 61 minutes, it was ours ..... but give them one more possession after that, and who knows?

Is there anybody else better or even close to either the Niners or Packers? I don't think so.

Saying we are not even close? That's just ridiculous. Would anybody say the Niners were not even close to the top if we had the last possession and beat them?


Agreed - most "ranking" systems go by raw stats - which is deceiving depending on who plays who. A good team playing against a low tier team will usually look amazing on the stat sheets - - However a great team playing against a great team will usually look less impressive in terms of stats.

At the end of they day it is all about what teams can consistently find ways to win - especially in difficult matches. Obviously we fell a little short on this last weekend.

My hope is that this team starts showing up ready to play for 60 minutes, on a regular basis.

But I've been hoping for that for a long time.

There is hopefully some internal pressure going on to remove Ross from his duties. Who takes his place is the problematic question. My deal is that if it is late in the game, take a damn knee, I don't care what you see out there. It ain't going to hold up for you long enough after you have made up your mind to go or stay in.

We are certainly not as consistent as some of the top dogs in the league no question, but I watched all the games through the week, and there were teams that made us look like a contender right now even after a loss like that.

Do I think the Packers are as far away from SF as they were in the playoffs last year? No.

Do I think the Packers can, by the end of the season, be in a position that they are the better team of the two? Yes.

But they have a couple major tasks ahead of them first:

1. OL.
2. Pass defense.

Indeed, IMO they have to fix at least one of those two if they want to get another shot at SF this year.

This is a great point. Many other teams appears as if they looked below the Packers. I know it doesn't mean much as it's only week 1 and each match up is different, but the Packers look pretty good this season. I said right after the loss that the Packers will win a minimum of 10 games, and possibly 11 or 12.

1. Total crap shoot. One of the areas of this team that I just don't plan to get my hopes up on. Hate to be the "debbie downer" but with the recent back problems of Sitton, I can only see things getting worse, even if Sitton does play.

2. Could get a lot better. Very hopeful it will. With the return of Burnett (this week) and Hayward a month from now, the Packers secondary should be in a good position to be successful.

All in all, they have a chance. I can't imagine what this team would be like if they had an above average offensive line. Gives me the chills thinking about it.

uffda udfa (17h) : Guion suspension upheld...lost for 3 games
uffda udfa (17h) : He works boundary...great body control...great feet...goes deep...runs well...is strong. Jordy Clone, maybe.
uffda udfa (17h) : Tell me he doesn't remind you of 87...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zPZNolFvPI
Zero2Cool (17h) : Only thing that matters : 40 Yrd Dash: 4.54
uffda udfa (17h) : Butler is 6'2 215...Hmmm, wonder what TT has in mind. Ha.
uffda udfa (17h) : TT went out and got us Jordy's replacement...James Butler...not even a camp invite.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : I knew what you were saying and I loved it! From a production standpoint it was worse than college radio. It had Aaron which made it worth
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I wouldn't know good radio if it sat on my face, but I know what I find informational and worthwhile. Tuesday with Aaron, was both.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I am saying my zero experience in radio > your whatever years. :D Bahahahahah
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Ha! Yeah, I only was involved in making good radio for 8 years. Don't know a thing.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Yeah, I'm not surprised I know good radio better than you. Not a big deal, you have your strengths, radio isn't one.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : We have very different tastes. I worked in radio for many years. Thought the show was so much worse than it needed to be.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : NFL Pick'em v2.0 is here!
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : Wilde was great choice and if not for Jason's rapport with Aaron, never would have happened.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : I never caught it live...listened to podcast a few times. Wilde was the wrong guy for that show.
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : That was poorly worded, my mistake. I was regular, it was great peak into his life. Planned meetings around it lol
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Tuesday's with Aaron I did listen, but I wasn't a regular.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Anyone seen Polargrizzz lately, he's AWOL !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : If you listened to them, Aaron urged them to go past the 10 minutes. Jason would be an idiot to cut it off.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : The contract stated 10 minutes but the show always went longer. Sounds like 540 took advantage and perhaps he got sick of it.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Aaron's radio show, sounds like he just didn't want to do it and they took too much of his time. Was only supposed to be 10 minutes.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Don't worry, be WR happy !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : WR!!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : LeRoy Butler and Finley want TT to add a WR. Silverstein wrote a piece on it, including Rison mention. Let's get this!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : The WHY is the big story, but that hasn't come out yet.
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : noooooooooooooooooooo!
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : Aaron is done? Why????
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : If you liked "Tuesday's with Aaron" he's not doing it this year. He's done.
Zero2Cool (23-Aug) : Tolzien being evaluated for concussion. What?
hardrocker950 (23-Aug) : wow... what a joke
dhazer (23-Aug) : Cheese heads are everywhere donot be sureprised ifor we are louder
Zero2Cool (23-Aug) : And you're wearing a Ben jersey... sad!
dhazer (23-Aug) : Hello from Heinz field
dhazer (23-Aug) : Anyone else going to be at the big ketchup bottle of Heinz Field
Mucky Tundra (23-Aug) : TEBOW!
