they're using Oher's run blocking skills to run to the right side now that they've made the switch. Oher's never seemed that special of a LT to me to begin with, but I'm no expert on line-men

Makes sense. He's not that great a LT, you're right. He's a good run blocking Tackle though.

Even still, I don't see McKinnie having that much success going against Aldon Smith and they're going to have to have Rice chip and head into the flat if they're going to have any success stopping him. Quick routes and dump-offs to Rice into the flat is how they're going to have success. I very, very much doubt Flacco is going to have a clean pocket, let alone time to hit guys like Boldin or Smith deep down the field. I hope we're all ready to see Flacco do his signature throw-it-and-hope-for-a-flag play because it's some how been working this season.

When Winston Churchill was asked how he could make a pact with Stalin in order to defeat Hitler, he replied "If Hitler invades Hell, I'll make a pact with the devil!" This is how I feel about rooting for the 49ers, if the Ravens were playing the Hades Pitchforks, I'd root for the Pitchforks.

Trust me I cant stand either team or their head coaches but If I had to choose a team to stand behind it would be the... ???

On one side I really dont want Lewis to get his storybook ending. However they do represent our division the afc north.

I don't want the niners to win because they will tie the stees in sb wins. Not only that but this niners team is really good. If it weren't for a couple fumbled punts last year in the nfc championship game the niners might be going for their 7th ring this year. This team has the potential to win a few sb's over the next 5 years. As long as Kapernick isnt a fluke. Unfortunately they have the coaching, talent and youth to make a run over the next few years. They remind me of the young stees core group of players that beat seattle in 06.


Many of you say you dont care if the niners tie us in sb wins if that means the Ravens lose. Who would you choose if the niners were going for their 7th ring this year?

Not really a tough choice, my irrational hatred of lewis and the ravens exceeds my desire for the Steelers to be the only team with 6 rings. And we were first to do it.
