Correct!

I think this has become a little overstated TBH. Last year two playoff teams started 0-2, for example. I think now that so many teams take the preseason off and struggle the first few week it will become more and more likely too.

If you watch the highlights, you'll see that Winston gifted them 2 TDs. San Frans offense didn't look so good either.

We've got a good chance, but it could be a trap game. Hopefully team takes this seriously and puts a whoopin on em.

ZT wants that first win as a head coach, he is 0-1

The Bengals will come out playin like their hair is on fire

SF QB is struggling trying to recover from an injury

Contain Kittle, stuff the run and get after Gar drop a load

Zach's offense will take care of the rest

From the 49ers beat reporter.  It was 85 in Youngstown yesterday.  Forecast for Sunday is high of 85 with scattered t-storms so humidity will be high

Kittle will be a big test.

Tevin Coleman is out so their running game should be limited.

It gives me hope (that not all owners are completely re tarded) that the Rams owner gave McVay an extension and raise after their SB defeat. Jed York is a compete fool. Sometimes I wonder if he's worse than Mike Brown. 

Wow. That was a rather revisionist version of what happened. LOL.

Harbaugh had just as much if not more to do with his removal than York. The dude had pissed off just about everyone in the building. It wasn't about the money. That should be evidenced by the fact that York was paying Kelly and Tomsula at the same time when they hired Shanahan...IE he was paying THREE coaches at the same time, two to NOT coach the team. Then he gave Shanahan and Lynch 6 year contracts.

The point was that it was never a money issue. It was a personality issue. It was a respect issue. Harbaugh representation kept floating rumors that he wanted the Browns job.

You can argue whether it was a good decision to let him go (it wasn't), but it was NEVER about money. It was a personality clash between the GM and the coach, and York chose the wrong one to keep.

Also worth noting that he inherited a team that had sucked as you say, but had drafted very well so had a TON of talent, particularly on defense. His departure then came at the same time as massive departures of their core of players (Patrick Willis, Justin Smith, Anthony Davis, Frank Gore, Aldon Smith, etc, etc).

York can be blamed for quite a bit, but money ain't one of them.

Zach played SF 2 times a year for the last couple of years, so I'm sure he has an idea how SF works, and McVay can always give him some tips. Nothing like a double win, helping a friend who's a new coach to beat your division rivals.

SF Defense didn't look so good. Winston is just that bad. Seattle's Def is much better.

I'm not quite sure why, but this post is kinda funny to me. Tongue

Its not just you mind you, but people forget that McVay was a student of Shanahan. The Rams and 49ers run a very similar offense.

The 49er defense see's something very similar to what the Bengals will present every single day in practice. Of course, the flip side of that argument is also true.

The difference between the Rams and the Niners these past few years isn't coaching. Its Talent.

The Rams tho have not faced this version of the 49ers. Bosa and Ford have made a HUGE difference, or at least they did in week 1.

I'm not making predictions and its entirely possible the Bengals win handily, but methinks some of you guys are taking the 49ers a bit lightly.  :)

As for Seattles Defense being "much better"? M'Kay. We'll see.  :)  For the record, Seattle finished 16th last year and the 49ers finished 13th. In addition, the 49ers added Bosa and Ford to address their biggest weakness while Seattle lost Frank Clark and replaced him with Clowney who had been in camp for about 4 days.

The Legion of Boom is gone. Bennet is gone. Avril is gone. Seattle isn't the same team on D. I will give you guys a lot of credit though for playing well IN Seattle. That place can be a house of horrors.

AJ green should be back for this game against Baltimore.

That’s gonna be the season defining game.

Yes, the same team that Singletary coached to 6-10, Harbaugh took to 13-3. The talent was there but the leadership was not. Harbaugh brought it all together.

And yes, money was in fact an issue. Perhaps not the issue, but it was a point of contention. Harbs wanted a raise and York refused. This is fact. Look it up. 

As for the personality thing, who gives a shit. When you have a coach like that that takes your mediocre team to three straight NFC Championships and one Super Bowl, you do whatever you have to to make and keep him happy. Rubbing people the wrong way....so what. York stuck with the people who didn't cause a fuss and look what that got them. Back to being a bottom feeder franchise.
