Inclement weather can be a great equalizer. Hopefully Walker puts on the right cleats this time and has an opportunity to run wild. I remember the game in Germany this year where he was just flopping around the entire first half until he put on the right footwear.

I agree Tom, a friend of mine posted this POV... "The Niners are better than the Seahawks. Ergo, I think the forecast of awful weather on Saturday might be an equalizer. If you're the better team you want perfect conditions. If you're not then bad weather can be the random element that plays in your favor. Of course, the door swings both ways: the random elements have an equal probability of working against the Seahawks. The Niners like to run these dipsy doodle plays to confuse or take advantage of a mismatch on defense. Rotten weather tends to take that away since they rely on timing. A sloppy ugly game played in awful conditions sounds good to me. I still say odds are one in four of a Seahawks win. By that I mean they are pretty good.". Oddsmakers have it 70-30 in 9ers favor.

Go placidly amid the noise and waste, and remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof.

from the best half of the year to the worst...

Since I have no expectations of forgiveness, I don't do it in the first place. That loop hole needs to be closed to everyone.

Too bad about the fumble. If they score on that drive it's a completely different second half. Oh well they weren't going anywhere with their D. Hopefully they have a good draft.

Yes, the defense, ranked in the bottom 3 in the entire league and so inconsistent. But that's to be expected with so many young players who will only get better. One key I think is that Purdy had a lot of time to throw and Geno did not, which obviously contributed to both turnovers. Hopefully they will use most if not all of their draft pics on defensive players. Sounds like Geno is going to be looking for a big contract, I personally would not pay him, mostly because of salary cap space but also not sure if he might be a "One Hit Wonder", flash in the pan, etc. The future looks very bright though.

I have to laugh when announcers extoll the talents of some quarterback, college or Pro, who basically never has a defender get within five yards of him. At that age, I could have thrown those same passes. It is the good scrambling quarterbacks like Mahomes who have the real talent. (or a long ago Russell Wilson)

I agree and Geno is expecting a big payday which I don't think one good season justifies. If the Hawks pay him more than 30 mill, 35 at the total maximum, I will be disappointed. I really don't expect him to be around here next season unless he doesn't get the type of offers from other teams that he wants. Wilson was good until he gained weight and lost some quickness, which in today's NFL, speed and quickness at the QB position is necessary for much success. Look at Matt Ryan, he had some good seasons as a pure pocket passer, but he is like a statue back there and gets sacked way to often.

Geno is good. They will pay him for 2 years my guess. Not sure Walker is the future at running back. He's talented but just seems to juke around too much. They can't rely on him when they just need to pound out a few yards and really need a bruiser like Penny, if he wasn't so prone to injury. It kind of surprised me today that they didn't stick with the run when the game was close, especially near the goal line with momentum just before the fumble.

Maybe you all are seeing something I don't... IMHO their running game only works when the offensive line actually makes blocks and holes to run through. Which does not happen all that much and why Walker (who I think is a very good running back) has to shift the play as the hole that is supposed to be there isn't!

It's all about the fun, oh and maybe the chocolate - half fast
