    Good to see that weather won’t affect the passing games to much in both games.

    Good! No handicaps. The best offense in football can be the best offense in football.

    I have a feeling Mother Nature makes up for it in
    just over two weeks…

    That sucks! I want a snow storm in Denver–that’s Patriot weather.

    Not good for the hawks =/

    Definitely an advantage for the Broncos offense. Still hoping they run the ball a lot like they did in the first matchup. Sets up play action nicely.

    More concerned with Broncos D vs. Patriots O. Blount has been lighting it up and I fear that if we play 8 in the box, Brady will light the D up.

    Dammit. I want cold weather.

    The seeds of antipathy were planted at the Los Angeles Coliseum in 2009, when Harbaugh’s Stanford squad upset Carroll’s powerhouse USC team. The Cardinal not only won but also put forth gratuitous effort to announce its superiority.

    After Stanford scored its seventh touchdown to push the score to 48-21 with about seven minutes left, Harbaugh violated coaching etiquette by directing his team to attempt a 2-point conversion. He wanted to make a statement. USC had long bullied the Pac-10 and Harbaugh wanted more than victory; he also sought to humiliate the bully in a most conspicuous way. If he could have danced on Carroll’s head, he might have.

    What followed the Cardinal’s 55-21 win was one of the most documented postgame moments in college football history, a puzzled Carroll seeking an explanation for Harbaugh’s gratuitous message, asking “What’s your deal?”

    Harbaugh responded by throwing the question back in Carroll’s face.
    In this year’s win, Harbaugh again got under Carroll’s by going for a two point conversion after a late score gave them a 48-21 lead. The obvious attempt to run up the score led to this exchange after the game:
    “What’s your deal? What’s your deal?” Carroll said, according to two sources near enough to hear.
    Harbaugh has his best team since getting the Stanford job, and after a win over conference leader Oregon, he led his team to a 55-21 thrashing of USC, the second time in three years Stanford has beat the Trojans, including a 24-23 win in 2007 that ended USC’s 35-game home win streak. 
    Harbaugh’s Cardinal team destroyed USC 55-21, Harbaugh blatantly ran up the score, and the two men had the infamous “What’s Your Deal?” exchange at midfield after it was over.

    Clouds of angst and rivers of tears forecast for Seattle Sunday eve after the Niners hoist the George Halas trophy at C-Link!

    Niners have taken the tougher road, beaten the tougher teams in their houses and are simply playing a better brand of football than Seattle is right now. Destiny awaits these 49ers.

    In Harbaugh we trust

    They have people that can forecast what the weather will be 2 days from now and be correct. Our local people can’t forecast and be correct the same day.

    Can’t wait to see Colon “deer in the headlights” Kraperdick give the NFC Championship to the Hawks and then put on his Beats and his ass-backward cap and mumble about how his team didn’t support him enough.

    LOL!! Gonna be a blast to watch.

    Good weather……1 PM kickoff….. Corrente assigned as the ref (he calls 2x more PI calls than his counterpart in the NFC game)……

    It’s been presented on a silver platter for the silver spoon boy and NFL Favorite Son Peyton Manning….. there’s a lot of money at stake…..think of all the advertisements….the movie and book rights…. the NFL videos….. sales in three markets (Tenn, Indy, Denver)….. $$$$ Ka-Ching!!!!


  14. lanman11 says: Jan 17, 2014 1:49 PM

    Oops, almost forgot about Marquice baby… Elway hands him a check and says “Are you downnn wit-it?”

    What more can they ask for?

  15. lanman11 says: Jan 17, 2014 1:50 PM

    Oops, forgot about restricted ticket sales….. and signing away their opponents best receiver…..

    They’ve got all the bases covered!

  16. karlmarxism says: Jan 17, 2014 2:37 PM

    Weather conditions favor Denver offense. If this turns into a shoot-out, it’s clear that Manning holds most of the guns and the ammo to go with it,

    On Monday morning, all the “49er fans” will be back to wearing Raiders jerseys and pretending to be hockey fans (go Sharks!)

    The weather won’t affect Kaepernick’s passing, but the Legion of Boom will.

    Legion of Boom will be enjoying nice weather in Honolulu next weekend.

    Its been some time since we’ve had a match up like this. Both teams are terrific and it should be a knock down slug fest. As a 49er fan if the Seahawks win we are just going to tip our hats and wish you luck…I suggest the Seattle fans do the same if the 9ers win and lets leave it at that.
