I went back and watched the 49ers and Panthers game again. What I found in that game was something no one is talking about at all. Sure everyone is talking about how Carolina won that game by just one point in the 10-9 victory. But would people still be talking about this game the same way if Carolina won the game by a full touchdown and extra point?? Would folks still be saying that Carolina only won that game because Crabtree was not in that game? Would Carolina get at least a little more respect then they do now? Well let me help all the pundits out, who believe that because Carolina only won by one point, that the 49ers will have there way with us come Sunday. The final score of that last match up was in all due respect, a little deceiving. If you go back and watch that game, you will see that we actually beat the 49ers by seven points! How can I say that when the score board said 10-9?? Well let me explain. First, we got a really good run by #34 Deangelo Williams for a touchdown! Then we got the extra point to put the score at 49ers 6, Carolina 7. Then we drove the ball down into field goal range, a 48 yard miss would have put the score up to Carolina 10, 49ers 9. Then in the second half we stopped the 49ers deep near there endzone. On the kickoff that would have gave the ball to Carolina next to field goal range, a freak mistake happened where the ball hit a Panther player on a short kick, then recovered by the. 49ers. Had we gotten the ball as we should have, we would have at the least got 3 points from that drive! The score then would have been now, Carolina 13, 49ers 9. Then in the forth, we drove the ball again into field goal range, and this time a 53 yard field goal made by Gano put the score into Carolinas favor 10-9. However if all the scores that could have been made, were made, the score would have been 16-9! The Panthers would have beat the 9ers by a full touchdown! Well this time were here at home , and I believe that with the 9ers having Crabtree back, will get the extra touchdown. But I believe Carolina will also get the 7 points we score just by being home plus the 16 we should have gotten in the first because I don't see Gano missing this game, nor do I see a crazy kickoff turning the ball back over to the 49ers. So if we give them there touch down that Crabtree will help them get, plus the 9 they got at home, and give us the 16 we had in our hand in San Fran, plus the. 7 we get just by being home, the score will be 23-16!! Carolina wins and shuts the 9ers mouths forever!! And the media will all of a sudden for a day say we are a good team! Then the next day, the media will again start saying that we only won because San Fran had a bad day, and the team we play next (Saints or Seahawks) will beat us because we just are not good enough to win the tuff games where the team shows up and plays well. They will say that about us till we win the Super Bowl, and even then they may still say the other team had a bad day.. But anyway, I feel it in my bones that this will be close to the final score on Sunday with Carolina getting the win here at home.
