    I think I correctly called the Niners vs. Bills game in my blog in the last Morning Tailgate.

    Props to the Coaches, Props to all the players, Props to the front office. Defense was as dominating as usual, Offense was monsterous, and the ST was dependable. I hope we keep this kind of intensity for the rest of the season. Teams who are on our schedule will loathe having to play us for the rest of the season.

    Goooooooooooooo Niners

    a complete victory. across the boards the 49ers whooped the bills. I am however very concerned with the sprained finger alex smith has,havent heard if its his throwing hand or not, but either way,it will effect the way he takes snaps this upcoming week-end and I am pretty sure I dont even have to say who we are playing this weekend. I remember steve young went into a game agaisnt the cowboys with a badly sprained index finger on his non-throwing hand and had to take snaps from center primarily from the shotgun, we won the game but it was precariious watching young fumble a few times but thats why they had him in the shotgun,it gave him time to recover the ball and complete the play, a fact made known by then coach bill walsh, saying we anticpated steve having some trouble from center but knew the shotgun would help him out, I am quite sure coach harbaugh will have alex ready in much the same way

    in 1996 the panthers came into the league with a 3-4 defense that took the league by storm,can you name their defensive co-ordinator? thats right,our very own vic fangio, that defense led the league in just about every defensive catergory possible for 4-5 years, coach fangio is re-introducing his style of 3-4 defense to the nfl, glad to have you on our side this time coach fangio
