To be honest I think the only reason there are so many more Niner fans is because of the increased popularity of the draft. The Niners havent been doing so well, so they have had good draft picks. Maybe fans have become more intrested in the draft and were directed in the direction of this draft orentated site. I do know that the main message board I use is 49erswebzone and I have thrown a link to these forums numerous times. And really now, there arnt thousands of NFL teams, you will see post about every team if you are looking for them.
About Frank Gore... He isnt the best, but he is a beast and easliy top 5.
Also, NO TEAM is a lock for the playoffs. So whoever says that about any team is full of BS.
