  • What NFC playoff contender can actually beat the Pats in SB47?

    I think it's pretty safe to say that no one in the AFC is going to stop them from getting to the big game once again except for Denver. Even so, I think that it's a safe guess at this point that the Pats will most likely be in the SB once again.

    Question is, of the NFC teams that are playoff contenders who can realistically put up a fight and beat them in the Super Bowl this year?

    Atlanta? I doubt it, no one is really scared of this team despite their record.
    Chicago? No way.
    Packers? Probably couldn't play D well enough to keep pace offensively.

    The only 2 teams I can think of would be Seattle and us. We have proven that we know how to disrupt Tom and make him look average, especially in the big games.., And the way seattles D is playing this year I think they are also a great matchup.

    What are your thoughts? Mind you, this is completely theoretical.

    If the 49ers found some more ways to get their playmakers the ball more consistently for a couple more big plays a game and could effectively run the ball as they do regularly, they can beat the Pats. I think the 49ers lose in Foxborough this week but in the Superdome? 49ers could beat them there in the Super Bowl imho.

        I forgot to mention them.
        I just don't see them being able to contend. When the 49ers get the lead in a game they are as good a team as there is in the NFL, but when they have to play from behind they are as bad of a team as there is in the NFL.

          Just corrected.

          They would have a chance in a low scoring game.

            They are built solidly enough to beat the Pats. It would be key for them to run the ball and control time of possesion and on defense get after Brady just as the Giants did in both Super Bowls against the Pats. They have players that are more than capable of doing this.

              The way to beat the Pats is on offense. The Texans have a killer defense that played pretty well. The 40 points dont tell the whole story.

              The offense on the other hand looked like garbage. They couldn't move the ball for crap, it was really pathetic. The D eventually got tired and the Patriots ran away.

                The thing is, we are in their heads. That's why we have an advantage over any team to beat them.

                    Hahaha, 49rers, no, even in my imagination I can't picture Colin Kapernick hoisting the Lombardi Trophy, the same sentiment goes to Seattle and Russell Wilson, they are posers.

                    If Green Bay gets their key players back they still are a more legitimate team just for the fact that they have Rodgers.

                    And of course, Giants would be in there as well.

                      Denver has no shot to beat the Pats either .They have such an easy road to the SB.

                        Any team that can put pressure on the QB can rattle Brady and has a chance to win. The teams that are likely to get to the SB will probably have a good enough defense to give them a chance to win.

                        And then you have GB who have a chance vs. any team in a shootout. They'd have to get lucky too, because the Pat's D is better than theirs.

                        Personally, I hope Denver beats them in the playoffs. I'm tired of the Pats. It would be more exciting to see Manning vs. Manning.
                        Do not feed the trolls.

                          If we meet the Pats again, it will be a very different game. They have a nasty run game now. And that has been our weakness this year among other things.


                          We'd have to score early and often and not let them get into a rhythm running the ball. It that happened, game over.


                          Also teams have figured out how to slow down our passing attack and have done it well. KG would have to have the gameplan of his life to be able to attack NE. They take away what you do best.

                            I don't agree about the Seahawks. The way they are playing right now is very reminiscent of certain Giants teams that made deep runs in recent memory. I do think they match up great with the Pats.
                            49ers...Again, I don't see them being able to keep up with that offense. If they could keep the score low and control the clock they def have a shot though.

                              They are a different team yes, but like you said, you HAVE to run the ball on them. We control TOP we win.
