Since 2007, the New York Giants (http://www.giants101.com/tag/new-york-giants/) have never won a game. At least not if you were to ask their opponents, who all claim they were the "better team" and the Giants either got lucky or some other nonsensical excuse. And that line of thinking continued on Monday as San Francisco 49ers (http://www.giants101.com/tag/san-francisco-49ers/) running back Frank Gore (http://www.giants101.com/tag/frank-gore/) recalled the NFC Championship game from a year ago, claiming the 49ers were the "better team," but just didn't finish.



"Knowing we were the better team. We didnít finish," Gore said on Monday. "The Giants won the game. It was tough. It was real tough. I had a chance to go to the Pro Bowl and I couldnít even go because I was so hurt. Knowing that we were the better team, but we didnít finish. They won and they moved on.Ē

The Giants, of course, were the better team a year ago and went on to win Super Bowl XLVI. They were also the better team in week six of this season when they demolished the 49ers 26-3." Read more...

Before everyone starts calling Gore all kinds of names...its no big deal. Its good to think that yours was the better team.
It must be a tough pills to swallow to have those 2 Kyle Williams plays cost you the game.

That is pure speculation and plenty of evidence supports the fact that Eli probably would have scored on them again. Given the time left in the game we may have not even needed overtime to end their season.

Frank Gore can go suck rope. Virtually the same two teams, except our FAs they rushed to sign, met again in 2012 and they got smacked around.

Actually this year he made an excuse after the game saying they abandoned the run to early.. LOL

this guy is a whiner, the 49ers didn't convert a single 3rd down till garbage time when we were heading for OT, they were NOT the better team that year.

They still had to drive the field and Smith had not played inspired football up to that point. Our defence had a few busted plays on Davis and that is the only reason they were even in the game offensively so I think you can argue either way.

Knowing that.... why even play the game? We could just have a panel of experts pick the better teams, then decide who should be in the playoff, and who is the best two playoff teams, then who should win the SB..... this way no players get injured. Gore is a friggin genious.

Are you saying he stopped trying once we were tied but if we were behind he would have tried harder?
I'm not sure what you are saying here. I'm sure we would have scored again if we could to avoid overtime.

Its tough to lose a game when you had two late turnovers as the difference, especially when one was purely flukish.
I have no problem with a competitor having a hard time forgetting it. These guys go through a lot to get to where we and the Niners were last season.

Uhm. I think we need to define what a "better" team is. In my mind, "better" means that if you play each other - say 100 times, who would win the majority of them.

So in SB 42, we were the better team that day, but the Pats were the better team. Period.

But i don't htink SF was better last year.

I see where you're coming from, but don't exactly agree with it. I think the playoffs to the superbowl is the ultimate test of teams as a whole. The playoffs are meant to skim the surface of the league and put the top teams in a bracket. We earned, and deserved that 4-0 sweep all the way through. Yes Patriots had the better record/stats, etc. But if you look at the big picture at the end of the season, the Giants were most definitely the best team in the league and could of beat anyone at that point.

I'm only saying that I can understand the statement. And that these kinds of sentiments don't bother me at all. I have fealt it many times in games that we lost.
Were we a better team than Washington in both those losses in 2011? Yes. They just beat us those two days.

I don't know why some of you guys are so sensitive. Like its some kind of personal insult.

Winning when you have to, does not mean winning one game. There are times however, that a game has more impact on a season. We had such games. We lost most of those games. We we're 9-7 last year and we were the Champions because we won "when we had to". Were we the "best" team last year? It is debatable. The fact that we were Champions is not.

And if the queen had balls she'd be the king. Kyle Williams' mistakes means that the Niners WERE NOT the better team along with a score of other things, like them being 1-13 on third downs and only completing 1 pass to a WR all game long.

That NFCCG was a a very tough, hardnose defensive battle. Neither teams defense was going to allow their team to lose the game.....not on their watch. You knew- at least I did anyway-that the game was going to be decided on a turnover. With the field and weather conditions, and the teams having no margin for error, the players & coaches have to press into there heads to protect the football. That's part of the game too.

And the 49ers were very ****y too. I think they thought that they would walk right over the Giants. They underestimated them.

Too sensitive? Maybe people are.

What seems much, much more likely is that your ridiculous position, designed solely to get the results you have, is 100% without any trace of merit.

Let's pretend that the second fumble never happened, and that Williams was tackled on that spot: Tell the class the results of every 49 drive in the forth quarter. How many were 3 and outs (hint...it rhymes with "ball but bun")

Total yards in the second half?
Passing yards?
Running yards?

How about this one: a roughing the passer call against the giants gave the niners more yards than they had passing in the 4th!!

Don't know what game Gore or you watched, but he one I watched had the Giants D (that you routinely credit and rightfully so) absolutely took complete control of that game in the second half and the niners could do nothing about it.

But somehow, in Gore's mind (and yours) the niners were A-OK.

Maybe they were resting?

Worst.

The three teams in question here all had one thing in common. They were all arrogant. They were up on the mountain thinking their was no way anyone could knock them off seeing they were so far superior then everyone else. An when they were finally knocked off the mountain they had to much pride to admit they were beaten by the better team. So they just made lundry lists of excuses

I don't think it is any more snippy than someone saying "we were the better team but lost". True, they had a couple of mishaps in the game, but on the same token, if Gore had played a little harder and scored one more time during the game, then he would not be making such a disrespectful comment about the Giants. I can live with comments like "They were the better team on the field today" or "They played harder than we did today" or "They wanted it more than we did today"..... but to say we have a better team reaps of sour grapes.

So when we got beat in the Flipper Anderson game you thought that the Rams were a better team. If so...you are the only Giants fan in America who did.
We beat them all over the field but because of a fluke int. and TD return at the end of the half and a horrific PI call in OT, among other things, we got beat. That was one of the best Giants teams of all time. But sometimes the ball bounces the other way.

My point is that its just human nature, when you lose a very tough and important game when two turnovers in the second half (one was just a freak bounce off the kids leg) to think that you should have won the game and that your team was better. I'm not saying that we didn't win the game fair and square or that they were better than us. I'm saying I understand a player thinking that.

Again, this kind of comment only bugs you guys when its against us. Lets see the next time we lose a tough game to a team we hate and one of our players says that we are a better team. We'll see how consistent you all are then.

Lets remove the 49ers two mental blunders, the fumbles.

Then equally, lets remove the giants two blunders, the two blown coverages.

Final score, giants 10, 49ers 3.

Or are we just going to say the 49ers deserved to play perfect but the giants didn't?

Lets remove the 49ers two mental blunders, the fumbles.

Then equally, lets remove the giants two blunders, the two blown coverages.

Final score, giants 10, 49ers 3.

Or are we just going to say the 49ers deserved to play perfect but the giants didn't?

I'm not saying he's right. I'm saying that I understand why a player would think or say it.
As a matter of fact, its pretty normal with competitive players.

So when we got beat in the Flipper Anderson game you thought that the Rams were a better team. If so...you are the only Giants fan in America who did.
We beat them all over the field but because of a fluke int. and TD return at the end of the half and a horrific PI call in OT, among other things, we got beat. That was one of the best Giants teams of all time. But sometimes the ball bounces the other way.

My point is that its just human nature, when you lose a very tough and important game when two turnovers in the second half (one was just a freak bounce off the kids leg) to think that you should have won the game and that your team was better. I'm not saying that we didn't win the game fair and square or that they were better than us. I'm saying I understand a player thinking that.

Again, this kind of comment only bugs you guys when its against us. Lets see the next time we lose a tough game to a team we hate and one of our players says that we are a better team. We'll see how consistent you all are then.

Since when does being consistent go hand in hand with being a fan? ... not to mention anytime a Giant player "talks" there is literally 100 posts to "just shut up and play"

Its easy to point to a freak bounce, but it cant be correlated to THE reason we won that game. The play made by the Giants to knock the ball loose is when there was already a fumble on a nearly identical play EARLIER in the game is the reason.

Human nature doesnt mean its not stupid.

If you read his comment you will see that he blamed himself and his team for not finishing. I just don't know why this comment upsets you guys.

Let me ask you this......when Rex Grossman beat us last year....did you think the Skins were a better team than us?

And I love your comment about fans. You point seems to be that we accept that fans are idiots and why should we be blamed for taking idiotic positions.

This is the main point i always try to make when someone says a team got lucky or gave the game away because of 1 play. I was one of the few people who thought the seahawks deserved to the beat the packers earlier in the season. many looked at he last play of the game and felt like the packers got robbed. but if you watch the game closely, the packers got a way with 3 bad calls (2 of them were pass interferences that the refs missed.) on that same drive

Way to close your eyes and run with that one... and also call anyone who doesn't hold your same position an idiot.

We as fans are naturally biased and will point out the faulty logic made by others teams players - you can brush off Gore's sour grapes a human natures but fail to do the same for the fans. Seems like the most "sensitive" one in all this is Gore.

I'm sure Gore has plenty of confidence in himself and his team

But they weren't the better team in the playoffs. Then they spent all offseason talking about how hey we're the better team only to get absolutely stomped by the giants again.

Giants have been clearly the better team the last two matchups.

Lets not forget the third meeting the giants were inside the ten and would have won had they scored a Td at the end of the game. I'll give that game to the 49ers but that was not a convincing win for them.

How many times do the giants need to beat them for gore to stop saying they are the better team? Right now it's best of 3 with the giants winning 2-1. Should we go best of 5? Best of 7?

Or do we keep going forever until gore retires or gets cut?

Before everyone starts calling Gore all kinds of names...its no big deal. Its good to think that yours was the better team.
It must be a tough pills to swallow to have those 2 Kyle Williams plays cost you the game.

When did it become "good" to be a sore loser?
Funny...back when we beat the Cowgirls in the Divisional round, I don't recall anyone here being this diplomatic towards Wade Phillips when he whined after the game that.... "the better team lost"!
For him not to acknowledge the big sp teams turnover the Giants got or compliment Eli for how tough he was that day is totally bush.

That's fine but do you blame him for thinking that HIS TEAM, the team that was 13-3, including beating us, was better. To me its human nature. Especially the way they lost, in OT with two late turnovers (one being a fluke)

My only point is that its just no big deal for him to think this or say it. Why you guys care is beyond me.

Again...there were plenty of games where we lost and I still thought we were the better team. I'm sure we can all say that. If you don't accept that you are just in denial.

I admit that I hated those comments because his implication was that the Giants were undeserving. At least that's the way it felt to me. I don't get that from Gore at all. He admitted that they "couldn't finish".

Glad to see you coming over to my argument.

He never said "we were better that day". He never said that "they didn't deserve to win". He never said "they were lucky"
He said that they believed that they were the better team and they "didn't finish". At least not in the quote cited in this thread.
When we lost to the Skins I'm sure every player on our team thought that we were the better team and didn't play well enough to win.

They did? I never saw any of that. Do you have a link where a Niner says that the Giants didn't deserve that win?

But we are talking about these specific comments made by Frank Gore. To me, (even by the standards you described a few posts ago) they were no big deal.
And to your point about this season. They are in the SB and we didn't make the playoffs. They went into Atlanta and beat them when we lost 34-0 to the same team.
You know how these things go. Team A beat's team B. Team C beats team A and team B beats team C. Its the NFL.
We won the championship game last season and deserved the win. I don't see anything that Gore is saying that disputes that. He just believed that they were a better team. And should have won the game if they "finished".

It's not knee-jerk. By him saying they were (meaning 2011-2012 season specifically) the better team, they're saying that the Giants had no business being in the Super Bowl to begin with.

Excerpt: "The 2011-2012 season has already been written in the history books. The New York (http://www.giants101.com/tag/new-york/) Giants reigned as world champions, and did so by first defeating the San Francisco (http://www.giants101.com/tag/san-francisco/) 49ers in the NFC Championship game and then the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI.

2012-2013 brought about a new season, and both the Giants and Patriots had let go of the previous year. However, despite being in Super Bowl XLVII, the 49ers have not.

Since arriving in New Orleans earlier this week, they've done more talking about Big Blue than they have the Baltimore Ravens. And admittedly, a large part of that has to do with the questions they're asked by the hoards of media, but they've clung to that 20-17 overtime loss since the very moment it happened. Even after signing Mario Manningham (http://www.giants101.com/tag/mario-manningham/) and Brandon Jacobs in free agency, the team refused to acknowledge or discuss that game.

Already this week Manningham and running back Frank Gore (http://www.giants101.com/tag/frank-gore/) have talked about the Giants and last season (http://www.giants101.com/2013/01/30/former-new-york-giants-wr-mario-manningham-is-tired-of-talking-about-super-bowl-xlvi-catch/). Gore expressed an incredible amount of bitterness (http://www.giants101.com/2013/01/29/49ers-frank-gore-on-nfc-championship-loss-to-new-york-giants-we-were-the-better-team/), and that trend continued on Wednesday when the media met with wide receiver Kyle Williams (http://www.giants101.com/tag/kyle-williams/).

Williams, as you might remember, fumbled twice in the NFC Championship game – his second leading to the game-winning field goal in overtime. Following the contest, Williams received death threats from 49ers fans, and it was later revealed that the Giants may have been targeting his head as he had a history of recent concussions.

Looking back on it now -a moment Williams considered one of the worst in his professional career- he remains "shocked" the NFL didn't investigate the Giants for what he considered equally as bad as the New Orleans Saints' bounty program.

"The only thing that was crazy to me was that nothing came of it. That was the only thing. Because I fully expected it to because of what just had happened with the Saints," Williams said. "When that came out I was like, ‘Oh, OK there’ll be the same type of thing.’ But there was nothing. I don’t know if that was because (the Giants) won it, or if it just wasn’t a big deal. But I just thought it would be exactly the same type of thing." Read more...

There's a difference between:

1. Deliberately targeting an injury on opposing players and attempting to make it worse or end their career.

2. Knowing a player is putting himself in the game in a degraded state and playing tough, hard hitting football in general to wear him out.

If a player is questionable/borderline for gametime, no matter the injury, the other team is going to look for weaknesses and target you. Why is this a surprise? This isn't a bounty scandal. This isn't coaches telling their players to deliberately injure a player. It's a player that's less than 100% deciding to play and getting the pressure put on him for being the weak link.

I just don't understand why this is even a discussion point for them. Could it be something Manningham or Jacobs has said to them? It just seems so odd to me.

Here's what he said then:

"Williams, returning kicks in place of the injured Ted Ginn Jr., muffed one punt early in the fourth quarter to set up a go-ahead touchdown for New York, then was stripped by Jacquian Williams in overtime to give the Giants the ball at the 24.

“You hate to be the last guy that had the ball, to give it away in that fashion and to lose a game of this magnitude,” Williams said. “It is what it is. We’re going to move forward as a team. Everyone has come to pat me on the back and the shoulder to say it’s not me.”

So when we got beat in the Flipper Anderson game you thought that the Rams were a better team. If so...you are the only Giants fan in America who did.
We beat them all over the field but because of a fluke int. and TD return at the end of the half and a horrific PI call in OT, among other things, we got beat. That was one of the best Giants teams of all time. But sometimes the ball bounces the other way.

My point is that its just human nature, when you lose a very tough and important game when two turnovers in the second half (one was just a freak bounce off the kids leg) to think that you should have won the game and that your team was better. I'm not saying that we didn't win the game fair and square or that they were better than us. I'm saying I understand a player thinking that.

Again, this kind of comment only bugs you guys when its against us. Lets see the next time we lose a tough game to a team we hate and one of our players says that we are a better team. We'll see how consistent you all are then.

In the case of the Giants/49ers game, I think both teams matched up well across the board. We won by playing hard. Lucky breaks happen in a lot of games and sometimes teams make their own luck.... sometimes teams that should win just lay an egg.... like we did when we allowed the Eagles to come from a huge deficit in the second half and beat us a couple of years ago. We could have said we were the better team..... but the truth of the matter is they wanted it more than we did and they played a full 60 minutes. Shame on us.... not them.

while i agree t is a big leap from those comments, toads point still kinda does make sense. if hes saying that they were the better team and remarking about it like the rest of the 9ers seem to be doing, one could easily (and correctly imo) infer that hes saying the better team didnt make it to the SB and thus, an undeserving team made it over them, a deserving team...
i agree more with ur sentiment im just saying i could see toads point

I have no reason to believe that Frank Gore is suggesting that we didn't deserve the win. We won the game...period.
What I gather from those comments is that he thinks that if they played the way they're capable, they would have won the game. To me, any other interpretation is a major reach.

i was a little surprised that they didnt investigate our fake injuries. but this is new , i dont see how he was proof of any kind just speculation.Devon Thomas, among others, said that they knew that Williams had a history of concussions and that if they were able to hit him hard a few times it might rattle him (as he'd be concerned about getting another concussion) and make him lose focus.

Honestly, I thought I did read something about the NFL reviewing the game tape and clearing of us from any wrong doing (no head shots, no after the business shots, etc.)

And I'm "shocked" they are still bitter about us beating them. You would've thought if they had any doubt about who's better, us owning them this year would have settled that....

That's not what it means at all. That is a huge leap from those comments.
Saying that you think you're a better team doesn't it any way suggest that the opponent who beat you didn't deserve the win.

If you choose to interpret those comments in that way, there is no reasoning with you.

If they don't believe that they should have gone to the SB last year over the Giants, why are they so butthurt about it now when they have another super bowl right in front of them? They shouldn't even be thinking about the Giants at all at this point... in 2012 the 49ers are Super Bowl contenders while the Giants didn't even crack the playoffs. Does that mean I think the Giants deserved to be in this year's SB even though we smacked the bejesus out of them when we visited the Stick? Not at all. Niners deserve the shot they have in front of them.

The bottom line according to my logic: There is no such thing as an "undeserving world champion". I may hate having to hear about the Cowboys 90s dynasty, but they won all those lombardis fair and square. Only exception is when someone cheats to win said championship, like Belicheck.

Lol, the organization has 5 Super Bowl titles. When they lose to the Ravens Sunday, what will be so special about this version of them other than a team that has had just 2 straight winning seasons in like over a decade but no new Super Bowl trophies and will have to contend with an arguably as good or better Seahawks team the 49ers can't seem to beat for many more years to come as well as a Rams team they can't beat that may not be better but matches up perfectly with the 49ers.

sigh -- the game in which I put my fist through the wall next to me while watching Bobby Duhon let the opening kickoff of the second half go through his outstretched hands and into the endzone where a Ram pounced on it to make the score Rams 7 Giants 3.

They still had to drive the field and Smith had not played inspired football up to that point. Our defence had a few busted plays on Davis and that is the only reason they were even in the game offensively so I think you can argue either way.

Definitely. There are so many what if's, but the only thing that matters is the end result. They can indirectly blame the loss on Williams, but he said better "TEAM", and that team includes Williams.

Eli got pounded in that second half, and while he got away with a pair of errant thorws, it was an all around gritty performance. I was especially impressed with that touchdown to Manningham on 3rd and 15 while down by 4 in the 4th quarter, after Eli had gotten pounded. He just hung in there and made a play.

Meh. I don’t really think the comments are a big deal. Marshall Faulk claimed after losing SuperBowl to NE Patriots “sometimes the better team doesn’t win.” It is just frustration. I think that what does get folks ire is the timing of it just like the comment by Clay Matthews months after the game. I mean, shouldn’t Frank Gore be worried about Baltimore Ravens right now and not the NFCCG from 2011? All in all however, I don’t really think he is knocking us but voicing his frustration at himself and his own team for not finishing a game they thought they should’ve won if they were better finishers.

Players make comments like Frank Gore did about being the better team and losing but it is better sportsmanship to keep that in the lockerroom and be gracious in acknowledging your opponents victory. I may be mistaken here but folks always bring up how NE Patriots keep making excuses about SuperBowl XLII but I have never heard the players state that. Now, I have heard plenty of fans making excuses for NE Patriots but not the players. does anyone have a link?

Well. The way some folks would take the comments by Frank Gore could be interpreted as “if we just finished, NY Giants couldn’t do anything about it.” Some would state that his bellyaching is stating that it was due to their own ineptitude and nothing NY Giants did and that is why they lost. It can be interpreted in many different ways. Frank Gore should be worrying about SuperBowl XLVII.

Our guys (Devin Thomas was the first to say anything about it) said that the point was that due to his concussion history if they were able to give him a good lick or two it'll make him lose focus, as he'd be more concerned about getting another concussion than doing things like, say, covering up the football.

The intent wasn't to injure him or give him another concussion, but rather just to rattle him to get him off his game.

The object is to hit the oppossing player that has the ball and try to rattle him. You hit him hard and you hit him clean. Kyle Williams has a history of sufferring from concussions and that means he may lose focus so the object was hat when Kyle Williams had the ball to hit him clean and hit him hard and to exploit that weakness. NY Giants didn't hit him in the head and we didn't take dirty shots at him. There was nothing wrong with what we did and it sounds like Kyle Williams has sour grapes. Also, he may just be frustrated because he turned the ball over once without being touched and another time with light contact while Eli Manning kept his poise better than any QB playing in NFL right now can considering the beating he took. Nobody crying about them going after Eli the way they did because that was obviously their plan and I don't blame them. Also, they hit Eli clean and fair.I guess we should take some solace that although we didn't make SuperBowl thia year that wr are still a poiny of focus during SuperBowl week.

The fact that they have another legitimate shot at a lombardi only makes this even more strange... the whole reason they were bitter at the Giants to begin with was disrupting their chance at a ring. Well here you go, you want your goddamn ring, go play for it. Stop *****ing about a team not even in the playoffs...

I think THEY think they've got the win already, and they're mad it won't be 2 in a row. They're that arrogant.

Which is why I say Go Baltimore.

49ers fans saying how amazing it is the made the Super Bowl without Manningham and Kyle WIlliams injuries . LOL the team started the same Defensive starters all season. I think 1 starter missed 1 game at the end of the season. The Nickel and Dime package guys played all 16 as well. What are they doing in SF to keep the team that healthy. Their worst injury was Manningham who missed 4 games , 4 frickin games.

Wasn't Justin Smith out for a few games? I recall their pass rushing being nonexistent at the time of his injury and Aldon Smith was "exposed" for not being as great because he needs Justin to eat up blockers so he can get a pass rush going.

Giants are really the better team. Giants had Eli manning and a good wr core at the time. The backs weren't bad and the tes were hot. I was suprised the game was close.

I admit that I hated those comments because his implication was that the Giants were undeserving. At least that's the way it felt to me. I don't get that from Gore at all. He admitted that they "couldn't finish".
Seems to me Gore was holding his own team accountable for the loss.

True....when you put it like that, I have to agree with you.
I guess I'm just tired of opponents back handed compliments and caveats attached to any reference to any Giants victory.
To me it's cut and dried.....the best team on the field is the one who makes one more play than the other team did and leaves the field with th "W"!

Before everyone starts calling Gore all kinds of names...its no big deal. Its good to think that yours was the better team.
It must be a tough pills to swallow to have those 2 Kyle Williams plays cost you the game.

Poor Kyle Williams. Everyone wants to point the finger at one individual. Never mind the fact that the Niners were 1 for 13 on third down conversions, or had MANY chances to win it in the 4th quarter and OT.

Unfortunately this is the same tune the Niners sing when they say they were the "better team". They tend to ignore the fact that their offense was garbage that day. But your right, it's no big deal because we all know Gore is full of it, but I don't agree that is "good" to think your team was the better team if you lose. When the Giants lose, I would hope they believe that they need to get better, not that they are already better.

Congratulations Niners for making it to the Super Bowl regardless.

Truth is they will probably be favored to go again next year. That's horrible considering the game will be played here.

I pull for the stanford cardinal, but something about Harbaugh bugs me. "We didn't play our best football today". How about giving props to the other team for once? The blackout saved your butt.

A message to Jim Harbaugh, the Forty-Whiners players and fans:

"On Any Given Sunday You Can Win Or Lose. The Point Is Can You Win Or Lose Like A Man."

Yesterday they proved they cannot lose like men.
They might pass Detroit as the most hated team in the NFL if this sore-losing attitude keeps up.

Case in point: The difference in the press conferences after the game. Jim Harbaugh continues to whine about the no call. John Harbaugh continues to talk about how great a coach his brother is and how he knew that he would have his guys fighting after the blackout.

Well, the best team lost again, to bad for Frank, maybe he has to demand a trade to a " bad " team to win it all next year. Seriously, we all get how frustrated he must feel but man up and be humble about it, show some class and just get to the drawing board to come out firing next year.

There were many reasons they lost but you have to admit, from a players perspective, when you have 2 horrible ST fumbles that turned into 10 points, (one being a fluke bouncing off the kid's leg) you can be frustrated with an overtime loss. Easy to blame that for the loss.

Don't forget folks, my comment came last week before the SB. Quite honestly, to repeat the same rap after the SB this season is bad behavior.

They have 1 more year before they have to start giving out contracts the depth will be gone.Justin Smith will also be one year older. Not to mention his injury issues. Guy is the key to their defense, that D-line is totally average without him. Aldon is not even near as effective when JS isn't in the game. Their secondary is also a huge liability with bloated contracts. The 49ers D wasn't the same this year, and will be worse next year.

It's so disrespectful to your opponent to consistently say "we were the better team and deserved to win more" after every tough, hard faught loss. What the Ravens weren't destroying you before that power outage? The Ravens weren't deserving of victory considering how they played from week 16 on? It's really poor sportsmanship. I can't even believe they, as professional athletes, feel justified in coming out with nonsense like this every year.
