    The 49ers are so deserving of the title this year. They’ve been dominant start to finish this year. Such a likable team too, I really hope they win

    On a real note, a likable team? really? They already have five Super Bowl titles, an illustrious history. They have the douchebag Nick Bosa, ultra-douchebag Richard Sherman (who I actually respect for the most part for his play and outspokenness, but he's just a tool imo), and "Feels Good, Baby" Garoppolo, which, by the way, worst catchphrase since "You Like That?" 

     

    I respect this team for the complete 180 it's pulled. But there is no way that this is a "likable" team in my eyes.

     This response tastes a bit... salty. What does their winning history two decades ago have to do with likability? That’s just nonsensical. I’ll agree Bosa comes off as a dirt bag, most notably to me was the early cheap shot that concussed our LT and landed him a fine from the divisional round. Sherman is Sherman. He’s not a dirty player or malicious, he’s just outspoken. You’re really attacking Jimmy G for a postgame response? Are those straws I see you reaching for? Just because the 49ers thoroughly dismantled your favorite team twice and proved to be significantly better (as we all saw coming), doesn’t mean they aren’t likable to the rest of the world. Sure they were much better than Minnesota, so what? Good for them, hope they run the title. They deserve it

    Does it come off salty? Mm... Nah. It's just me speaking my mind. We're all entitled to it, even when some of us like spreading garbage conspiracy theories and stuff like that. Am I happy the Packers lost to the 49ers in embarrassing fashion? No. Of course not. It's not like we didn't see this coming too. In reference to the success thing, do you really wanna see a team that has 5 trophies in its history beat the team with only 1?

     

    But a team is an encapsulation of its players, personalities, and the fans that support them. There have been very few 49er fans I've viewed favorably, and most of them are on this website. Everybody's entitled to like the 49ers, so go ahead. It's no skin off my back, Teddy. Notice I never argued the dominance. Because that's quite objective. But likability is very subjective, and I disagree with you.

     

    We can disagree. It's okay. The fact you brought the fact that I'm a Packers fan in on this leads me to believe that you are the salty one. 

     A hilariously hypocritical take. You’re advocating that everyone is entitled to an opinion when this conversation started by you telling me my opinion was wrong Laughing I simply said I want SF to win because they are a really likable team IMO. You responded with a meme and the above response of why they are absolutely not likable. How are you going to now come at me with “it’s just my opinion let me have it”? Lol

    Where did I say you weren’t entitled to your opinion? I told you I didn’t like them. I literally said “in my eyes.” No part of it said you are absolutely wrong. I said I didn’t agree and offered an argument to support my opinion. Your entire argument is “lol salty Packer fan don’t like the team his team lost to lol.” God, you’re funny, dude. Zero part of my responses have been hypocritical in any way. You just refuse to offer rebuttals and come at me personally.

     

    You wanna hear my opinion on the 49ers? Go listen to the podcast, we recorded last night (so, well before this entire argument took place). You’re not gonna do that though, you see my name and disregard everything. Just becomes a personal attack. You wanna come at me personally, check out the personal messages and hit my inbox. But right now you’re not talking football you’re just talking about ME. Stay on topic. 

    TELL ME WHY THE 49ERS ARE A LIKEABLE TEAM. Everybody else has made the argument for you, and I’ve communicated with them earlier in the thread, now do it yourself. 

     Damn. I’ll just go piece by piece because there’s a lot here.

     

    1) You stated “You refuse to offer rebuttals and come at me personally.” Holy hell. Like what in that actual hell. Literally said “you sound salty”. That’s a personal attack? Hot damn this is where we are in 2020. Also, my “rebuttal” was being confused by your response to me. I didn’t understand why historic success and “Feels good baby” is a reason to dislike a team. I also agreed Bosa comes off like a jerk. 
    2) You asked “You wanna hear my opinion on the 49ers?” Um. No. I don’t. I don’t give a shit. That’s why I didn’t say “Hey Taterman what do you think of th e 49ers?”. Instead I made a general post on a general thread addressed to anyone but no specific. Nothing I said had anything to do with you until you addressed me. So no, I’ve never asked anything of you.

    3) You stated - “Go listen to the podcast we recorded”. What podcast? What the hell? Am I supposed to recognize you from First Take or some shit? I don’t even know what the hell youre talking about in regards to a podcast.

    4) You stated “You won’t (listen to the podcast) though” - Well of course I won’t. Why the hell would I listen to your podcast?

    5) You then doubled down on a “personal attack”. Lord have mercy. Personal attack? Laughing I said you sounded salty. That was the extent of anything related to you. The fact that you’re responding with such a bizarre and defensive ass reply suggests maybe there was a little sodium chloride coming from you. But I don’t know, I don’t want to insult your heritage and attack your whole life with such an outlandish and offensive statement like “you sound salty”. I’m shocked we can even use such a dangerous word on the forums.

    6) Using all caps (very emphatic) you demand of me that I tell you why the 49ers are likable. Again, what in the actual hell? Why? Why are you so upset? But I’ll bite because I’m a people person. Jimmy G and George Kittle are fun personalities and great young talents. In fact the shoe offense is young talent with Mostert and Deebo too. Selfless skill positions that were bragging about laying the best blocks post game. What receivers do that? Young coach that’s as hot of a play caller as there is. I also like John Lynch.


    Hopefully that’s good enough.

     

    But at the end of the day you seem like an angry fellow. You initiated interaction with me with a “BOO THIS MAN” GIF followed by a post that tries to make my opinion sound ridiculous and/or wrong. I simply said you sounded salty because your team lost to them. And then you went ALL CAPS on me and commanded me to “listen to your podcast” Laughing :lol Laughing Holy shit I can’t get over that podcast thing. “LISTEN TO ME TALK ANOUT SPORTS” Laughing Laughing

     

     

     tipsy drill podcast. we have a thread for it. me tater and colton. you should listen Smile it's fun. or you can keep being mr grumpy pants

    You heard it here first folks, listen to the podcast or you're mr grumpy pants.

    Revis isn't fit to hold Deions jock. Or either of the Woodsons.
    3 amazing seasons.. then what?
    Most overrated player of this generation.
     

     People really forget Rod Woodson's greatness.

     

    During their day, It was always Rod Vs. Deion about who was the best. Rod was amazing, and also the fact that he was physical as well added a whole other element over a guy like Deion.

     

    I've always felt that Deion was the single greatest man to man corner ever, but Rod was the most complete corner.

     

    And Revis' was a flash compared to them. Revis was great during those few years. But he didn't have the sustained excellence that Deion or the Woodsons had.

     

    Sherman is excellent, and has been, and due to his longer career I prefer him to Revis.

    I agree that Sherman will likely end with the better career, but I think it's more appropriate to say that Sherman *will* pass Revis, because he isn't there yet imo. If you cut off Revis' 2016 and 2017 (when he fell off a cliff), he has 128 games played to Sherman's 134. 

     

    If Sherman turns into a bum next year, think I think Revis has the better career. I also want to point out that a large portion of the Woodsons' longevity was because they played at safety. I think Rod Woodson is clearly a better player than Revis, but it's a lot closer as a Corner Back.

    I think Rodgers had a clear claim to the MVP in 2011. Brees was great, and its another example of how unlucky he has been to have his best seasons overshadowed by an-all time great one. He led the league in ANY/A, DVOA and QBR. His ANY/A+ of 147 was the 3rd highest ever among qualified passers in a single season since the merger. The Saints defense was also not much worse than the Packers'. Bowler mentioned the (weighted) DVOA, and the Packers actually gave up more yards/drive and points/drive.

     

    2009 is a much more muddled picture imo. If I had a vote, I would've picked Brees or my man Rivers. But I don't think its fair to say its a "farce" that Peyton won. His reputation helped ofc, but its more of a tiebreaker than an outright decider. Peyton was still awesome in 2009, with a slightly lower DVOA and QBR than Brees, but a slightly better EPA/play. It was close. I don't think Brees was cheated. He was just again, unlucky.

    94 RTTP Manning. I'm to cheap to bench a 94, especially with MS Mahomes presumably becoming available in less than 2 months. Unless of course a better Vert QB becomes available for free from a set or pack pull.

    Same with me.

    Jimmy G was the only QB to finish top 5 in TDs, yards, completion percentage, and YPA. He may not be top tier but he isnt some scrub. People keep saying Chiefs have to worry about the 49ers run game but you cant just forget about and ignore Jimmy G back there.

    He was only 12th in passing yards, but no that's still surprising to hear. I would say that although I think Jimmy G is pretty good, his performance is really the product of his cast and scheme. 

     Is he really? Guess the stat I read was wrong. My point still stands. Scheme or players, hes still getting it done. I just feel like so many Chiefs fans are essentially writing him off. It's all "stop the ground game" and nothing else. Just dont think people should be completely tossing him aside like that.

    Ya, he was only 19th in pass attempts and its damn near impossible to be in the top 5 passing yards with so few attempts. I agree, I think Shanahan is going to score points, and if he needs to do it through the air he's going to. That Niners offensive gameplan against the Saints was a work of beauty.

    I think mahomes is undoubtedly the best qb in the world, nobody should have any question marks about this guy and the crazy thing he’s in his 3rd year..

     didnt wilson win one in his 2nd year? 

     Idk what u mean by that, Super Bowl? I wasn’t meaning that We don’t know if he’ll win it but I’m saying the crazy thing about him is he can still get better and better, we’ve never seen a qb like mahomes and he’s what 24 or 25?

     Sure we have, this is how people felt when Rodgers became Rodgers.

     I've been listening to sports people talking over the past 10 or so years about how Rodgers is the best QB ever, meanwhile both Brees (in numbers) and Brady (in championships) have been steady, and Rodgers has gotten nothing.

     

    Interesting to see if Mahomes can do better, or will he maybe win one early, then when his contract takes up such a huge bulk of the cap the team will suffer afterwards.  But it's absolutely ridiculous that people are literally saying that Mahomes is the greatest QB of all time, just like they did with Rodgers a few years ago.

     

     

    It's definitely too early to crown Mahomes, but its his early age that entices things. Rodgers was 27 or 28 when he reached peak Rodgers, Mahomes is still only 24. While I don't think Mahomes' first 2 seasons was the best back-to-back seasons ever, its amazing that they're his first 2 seasons. Maybe we have already seen peak Mahomes (like Dan Marino who had his best seasons at age 23 and 25), but maybe we haven't. And that's a scary thought.

    Out of 120 CBs that played at least 300 snaps, PFF had Xavier Rhodes graded as #114. He was just given a Pro Bowl spot.

     One of my favorites, Alvin Kamara, was put into the Pro Bowl. But he didn't deserve it, at all. It's a joke. Demario Davis and Ryan Ramcyk, both named to the All Pro squad, did NOT make it to the Pro Bowl.  I still remember when Dak made it his rookie season over Brees, who did not, despite passing for over 5k yards.

     

    Pro Bowl is an even worse popularity contest than All Pro is.

    Dak deserved it over Brees tho. It's not about the raw passing yards.

     Let's see. 70% completion percentage for 5200 yards, 37 TDs.  Vs. 67.8% for 3667 and 23 TDs.

     

    Good solid season for Dak. But anyone left off other than Brees and people would be howling. But Brees? Just a ho hum typical year.  Like I said, it was a farce.  Just a typical point of Cowboys bias, and the foolishness of the Pro Bowl.

     

    Most of those numbers are primarily driven by volume, so they're not that important. Dak had a 8.0 Y/A, a 5% TD rate, a 0.9% INT rate and a 5.2% sack rate compared to Brees' 7.7 Y/A, 5.5% TD, 2.2% INT and 3.9% sack. As such Dak had a superior ANY/A, as well as a better DVOA and EPA/play. Brees was great that year again, better than I remembered tbh, but I think Dak had the better performance.
