The dirty birds just seem so complete on both sides of the ball, in the trenches, with skill players on offense and the back four on defense, that I can't see the 49ers staying with them for 60 minutes.
I expect the game to be close early on but, as the game wears on, the Eagles are going to grind the 49er's front four down and ruin the game by pressuring Purdy.
Agree. Niners bring a toughness to any matchup. And that toughness isn't only on their defense.
Would love to see Deebo run over a few Eagle CBs and Safeties on the way to the end zone this afternoon.
The Niners are nasty. I can see this a lot like the 2002 NFC Title Game when the Bucs came into the Vet to play the Shitbirds and won based on their defensive brilliance.
Not inspiring but hoping this is a first. Purdy will have to make legit throws and given the pressure Eagles can bring up front and coverage on back end, Shanahan will need to have a good gameplan to run the ball and keep Eagles guessing.
Unfortunately I think we'd all do well to gird our loins. Just repeat after me: "Back, and to the left...back, and to the left..."
We all hate Philly but you and other Philly (south jersey) residents obviously have a passionate hatred that probably even eclipses my hate for Dallas. As much as Dallas fans infect north jersey it pales in comparison to what you have to endure down there. For you folks, no one else, go niners. I’ll be fine (miserable yes but fine) up here where I rarely see a Philly fan. I feel for you folks.
Yes, but I don't think the game looks like this if Purdy doesn't get knocked out. Much closer game. That game became unwatchable in the second half when SF had literally no QB. Did they even attempt a pass in the 4th quarter?
