San Francisco 49ers (12-3)
at
St. Louis Rams (2-13)

Time: 10:00 am pst

Location: Edward Jones Dome


Must win. We all know what's at stake. Going 13-3 and getting a first round bye would cap an amazing regular season. Of course, if we beat their ass, they may end up getting this


which is kind of funny considering this

Will miss the game with a bum ankle.

Or they could trade the pick and be remembered as the team that passed on Luck. Have fun with that.

This game just scares me. It should be a rout, something like 26-0. Pure guess. But it will probably be much closer this time. Something like 24-0.


A thousand words.




1 more sack and he sets the rookie record. Badass. I want this record.

So, ummmm, none of this?
Curious timing to cut Braylon. Must be some locker room drama or something distraction related to cut him at this point. Also, I didn't use a game picture because I'm not sure he ever played in a game.

Dear Brett Swain ...

... I hope you don't suck
Sincerely,
Everyone.

Whatever. Just win this ******* game convincingly.

Standings:

1. San Francisco 49ers (12-3)
2. Arizona Cardinals (7-8)
2. Seattle Seahawks (7-8)
4. St. Louis Rams (2-13)

I know that there is excitement that Patrick Willis looks ready to go. I don't want him to play. Win without him, give him this + two more weeks before he has to play. Can never be too safe. Look at the problems guys like LaMarr Woodley have had trying to play on these hammies.

Madirishman 12-30-2011 09:23 AM

Yeah, maybe they give Willis a couple series to knock off any potential rust he may have. It's a potential double-edged sword but if he plays in this game, I think it's cause he's healthy. If he has lingering issues, I just don't see them risking it. Besides, who wouldn't mind a little more of Larry Grant beating the crap out of his old team? My prediction: 30-6 Niners.

Ness 12-30-2011 12:49 PM

This game has me kind of nervous. I'll be watching at home of course. We haven't lost a game every time I've watched the game at home. In the three losses I was away from my house. I was going to go out to a bar or something, but since something important is on the line for this game I'm staying glued to my seat. 49ers should roll though regardless of my superstitious attitude. It would be nice to close out the season with our best record since 1997.

Brent 12-30-2011 12:54 PM

Here's hoping that Gore and Willis aren't needed until that playoff game!

Rabscuttle 12-30-2011 01:12 PM

Grant has done well filling in for Willis, but the difference between the two really showed up last week. Risking Willis being out there for the playoffs isn't worth it if there are any questions about reinjury.

And something has to be done to get Gore on track. I suggest PCP.

Hell just let CK start this game. I'm sure he would put up more numbers then Smith ha.

Seriously??? If so, come playoff time, you better stay the hell home or the rest of us will come get you if the Niners lose. LOL.

Ness 01-01-2012 12:12 PM

49ers have already missed a field goal. Great opening drive.

Ness 01-01-2012 12:15 PM

And now Rams are in scoring range.

Ness 01-01-2012 12:18 PM

Wow you're going to let Kellen Celemens run for a eighteen yard touchdown?

So much for this run defense. God I'm ashamed. 49ers are going to lose against the Rams.

binary 01-01-2012 12:19 PM

MELTDOWN?? NOW??? wow.

Ness 01-01-2012 12:26 PM

Not surprising. This team's offense is God awful.

binary 01-01-2012 12:39 PM

Alex saved us there....we should just forcefeed Crabtree, he's the only guy I have faith in getting open.

Borat 01-01-2012 12:45 PM

Thank you Spagnuola. LOL.

Crabtree came to play!

binary 01-01-2012 12:46 PM

Crabtree is taking over, just give him the ball he's our only legit receiver right now.

binary 01-01-2012 01:30 PM

We might be in the clear now (don't want to jinx it).

Ness 01-01-2012 01:59 PM

Panthers aren't doing any favors for us. And Willis looks rusty.

Rabscuttle 01-01-2012 02:52 PM

Think of what the margin of victory would be like for the Niners if the offence could execute?

First in giveaways, takeaways, turnover margin and starting field position should result in an assload of points.

VAfy-ya 01-01-2012 03:06 PM

C'mon.....stop looking at the clock and play freakin ball, smdh

Ness 01-01-2012 03:28 PM

Finally. The number two seed is clinched. But this was a terrible win. The 49ers almost allowed the Rams to beat them. This is one of the worst 13-3 teams I've ever seen I hate to say, maybe worse than the 2008 Titans and the 2001 Bears. God-awful quarterback play will get you roasted in the playoffs like what happened to those teams. Alex Smith needs to be let go and the franchise needs to get someone else in either a trade or draft another quarterback. Smith's performances this season won't get it done in the long run. Just a disgrace. Not sold on Kaepernick either. Don't have time for a project. Get Matt Flynn in here or draft another quarterback in the later rounds with the opportunity to start.

binary 01-01-2012 03:33 PM

Well guys, we got the bye, not the greatest ending but what a SEASON. Great defense, solid QB play, solid running game, this team is looking pretty well-rounded. There is just SO MUCH to build on, I expect the Offense to improve by quite a bit next year, and hopefully in the playoffs. WR needs to be a priority though.

The two things that concern me most are the WRs and Frank Gore. Gore looks slow out there, especially compared to Hunter. If all we have is VD and Crabtree, we are screwed. The rams were just doubling those two and knew that no one else could get open.

Just stop it.

lol, stop being emo. Alex has had a very solid season, and you know it. I know you hate him and you personal bias gets in the way, but deep down you know it and so do most fans. I'm not gonna argue about Alex with an overly emotional fan though, it's a waste of time. This season has been too much fun, with too many positives including solid QB play. Have fun celebrating (or whining) about being 13-3!!! CONGRATS.

We'll, considering we were without the services of Ginn and Williams, I'm not overly concerned. Both will be back for the first playoff game so its a moot point. Defense could have played better but we rested to some guys in the second half and it almost bite us in the ass. But we won and that's all that really matters at this point.

The team is what it is. We are the Falcons from last year, but with a better defense. We're a ball-control offense that needs to play mistake-free to win. Considering where we were this time last year, I'll take that in a heartbeat. But this team is just in the beggining stages. Im egaer to see what Baalke has in store this off-season for improvements. I don't think ppl understand just how remarkable a turnaround this year was. We had ZERO prep time to install our sytems and get our players familar with the little intricate details of both schemes. Obviously it was a little easier defensively, sticking with the 3-4 but offensively, the switch to the WCO is not something to be taken lightly. We were basically learning on the fly. Imagine how we'll look with a complete off-season to install the entire playbook. To tweak certain elements in the offense to fit our personel better. To add players who fit the scheme better, now that we have actually game-film of our offense and defense and where we need to see improvement. We're just getting started. Regardless of what happens in the playoffs, I'm VERY excited about the future. Im going to love sitting back and watching Baalke and Harbaugh develop this team into a yearly contender. Stop and smell the roses ppl.....
