In preparation for Super Bowl LIV, I examine a few popular takes and make some wild predictions of my own.
The Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers will face off in Miami this Sunday. What will happen? Which coach will cement their legacy? Will Patrick Mahomes capture his very first Championship? Or will Jimmy Garoppolo put his team on his back and throw more than 8 passes? The biggest question of them all is, who will be hoisting up the prestigious Lombardi trophy? Well, lets have some fun and predict out all four quarters and see what the outcome could possibly be!
The Kansas City Chiefs have finally ended the 50 year drought of not reaching the Super Bowl. They bring home the Lamar Hunt trophy and will look to bring the Lombardi trophy home as well. The Chiefs will have to get through the 49ers to take home the biggest of prizes.
An offhand comment from Jimmy Garoppolo to Fox’s Erin Andrews on Halloween after an 8-0 start to the season became a rallying cry for both fans and some teammates. Naturally, 100 different companies have slapped the phrase on any piece of merch they have that can fit the 3-word catch phrase (spoiler, it’s a lot of merch). Despite everyone trying to make a buck off of it, the statement really sums up how 49ers players and fans feel about this season. It feels great to win the NFC. It feels great to have another shot at winning the Super Bowl. It feels great to have a team to be proud of, not just on the field but also how they mesh off the field and support each other. It’s wild looking back at the preseason and remembering the vibe around some corners of 49ers twitter. I saw a surprising number of people saying San Francisco should fire both HC Kyle Shanahan and GM John Lynch (2019 PFWA Executive of the Year). This is what a rebuild done right looks like. I’m excited for the Super Bowl and I’m also excited for the team’s future.
Last week we saw what Kyle Shanahan wants to do if everything is going their way: pound the rock and eat the clock. He wants to establish the run and is willing to abandon the pass if their RBs can keep finding lanes.
Well its finally time to crown conference champions this weekend and see who the final two teams will be. It’s always exciting to see who shows up in the playoffs whether as a surprise team or a team with a bye that continues to play strong. Both games this weekend should be exciting as both have the line at about a touchdown for the home teams. This means that the scores could stay close. There is also the added appeal that both games are going to be repeats of previous meetings from the season. So, if the games were not important enough there is also the added sense of revenge for both the Chiefs and the Packers heading into these vital games. The matchups are exciting especially when you look at DFS plays for this weekend.
“We had a goal going into this game. We thought the team that got over 30 runs would win this game…”
What is often regarded as the best football weekend, the Divisional Round of the playoffs is here, and it is shaping up to live up to that moniker. Including a few matchups we don’t get a chance to see very often. One of those being in the NFC, between the San Francisco 49ers and Minnesota Vikings. A matchup between two teams who are built strikingly similar but have followed different paths along the season. Today I’m going to preview a few of the matchups in this divisional round game, a long with some keys to victory for San Francisco
The Green Bay Packers (8-2) take on the San Francisco 49ers (9-1) at Levi’s Stadium. In this pivotal Prime Time Week 12 matchup, the Packers will need to win this game in order to have a chance at acquiring the Number 1 seed in the NFC. I have a gut feeling that George Kittle will be on the field for the 49ers as this is one of the most important games of the season thus far.
Emmanuel Sanders is still one of the leagues top wide receivers and since joining the San Francisco 49ers he has been nothing but great for your fantasy football team. The question about Sanders will be can he finish the season as a top 12 wide receiver.
With San Francisco debuting their brand new alternate throwback-inspired jerseys, they wanted to ball out in style. While their big ballers on defense stayed hot against CMC and the Carolina Panthers offense, we saw one of the 49ers big offensive acquisitions from the off-season finally pay off. Tevin Coleman absolutely exploded for 105 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns, adding another 13 yards and 1 touchdown through the air. Now, with TC being apart of a running back committee that includes Matt Breida, it ponders the question whether or not if this is what we can expect from Coleman, or if this was a one off performance. Let’s take a deeper look.
