    Of COURSE it hurts. I never said otherwise. All we are talking about is the DEGREE of hurt.

    Your team has a great chance to beat the Niners. Again...never said otherwise.

    However...don't you think you guys have a better chance if Justin Smith isn't his normal self?

    Degree of hurt is inversely proportionate to ability of your backups

    Of course...

    ...but at this point I dunno even what we are arguing about. That has nothing to do with my point.

    This whole thing was just about whether losing players at the same positions on teams built very differently was equateable. I say no. You seem to think its the same.

    I have a feeling niether of us is changing that position.

    We're arguing because you're making it seem like our starters aren't fit to be backups on your squad with the exception of "Rodgers and a couple of receivers" Fact is, as great as Rodgers is, he can't win by himself. You devalue our starters and the effect that losing them has had on our team. We have done incredibly well in spite of all the horrible injuries we suffered, and that's not because our starters suck.

    I'll even go so far as to say that in terms of pure man coverage I believe our CB could hang with any of yours, Sitton could easily fit in on your line, one or two of our RB could make your roster over Hunter, and I think Raji is better than Sopoaga. I'll even say Clay would trash any of your OLB, even Aldon.

    Did someone really make a argument referencing the # of pro bowlers they had. Jeff Saturday is a pro bowler for us. :roflmao:

    HyponGrey is correct. It's silly to say that the loss of an important player on our defense such as Bishop is less important than losing a player on a defense that is very good.

    Losing Bishop is not as important as them losing Willis. Just like losing Kaep is not as important as us losing Rodgers. Or, us losing Clay is more important than us losing Perry on the other side.

    That's my opinion. Hypon is not correct or incorrect. It's just his opinion.

    I happen to agree with Marvin.

    Besides Bishop, other losses that really would have answered questions this season were Nick Perry, Sherrod, and Bulaga. Perry was new but could have been a force during the games that we did not have Matthews and may have made a difference along with Woodson when we went to Minnesota.
    Our offensive line is not one of the better ones in the league. But maybe with these guys out there we could have fared better in NY and ARod might not have 51 sacks all said.

    A defense that has a # of quality players doesn't suffer like one that is let's say average that losses a Bishop or Matthews. A very good defense still has a # of quality players to pick up the slack. So it's my opinion that Hypon's opinion is correct and I'm sticking to it.

    I know it's never fun to see injuries - particularly gruesome ones, like the one to Bowman. But, I bet Frank had a grin on his face, for even just a second, when Iupati and Bowman suffered those injuries.

    Yeah, I thought about Frank, too.

    After watching two of their key starters go down, I couldn't help but think, "Welcome to our world, 49er fans..."

    Vewwwy funny.

    There's a national football fan website I am on, where there are some popular posters from the 49ers fans.
    And I am more "famous" (notorious) for b*tching about ALL our injuries and their LACK of injuries specifically.

    Anytime there's a Niner down during a big game, people post them thinking about me, and that was tonight twice.

    But here's the thing: All week, I let it be known there that I was betting on SF and was a big Niner fan this game!
    And look what happened. Amazing. Am I a jinx or did their ridiculous luck finally catch up to them?

    That was a normal casualty list for us.... we have many games where we lose 2 key guys.
    Case in point, 2 weeks ago, first drive, against them.

    I do hate to see anyone suffer gruesome knee & leg injuries though.
    Any team.

    Seems to me that you need to find a new "favorite" team.

    It's down to Denver.

    I hope the back refs don't let the Seahawks keep holding and grabbing the Bronco receivers though.
    They got away with dozens today, as we saw on replays and a few of which even Aikman called out.
    For all that we see occur, there are about 2 or 3 going on we don't see.
    Seattle has perfected the art of pass interference.

    Kevin Gilbride: Seahawks have perfected art of pass interference

    For the Seahawks defense, it ain't cheating if you don't get caught.

    I seam to remember a time not long ago when the Packers secondary was accused of getting away with murder.

    The comment about calling playoff games like regular games is bogus. They've been letting them play in the playoffs, as usual. (That's how it should be)

    Woodson especially.
    He got away with it, perfected it, for a little while.... but then he got called. And called again... and then he had the reputation and the zebras would call him early, and he'd have to stop the grabbing. That resulted in what appeared to be him losing a step overnight.

    Seattle has been called out publicly time and time again this past half-season, and the NFL & Zebra Association have not cracked down on them yet, for some reason. They better.

    Or what? You are going to start rooting for the Seattle DBs so they get injured? ;)

    I never like knee injuries.
    Sherman and Chancellor and Earl Thomas busting their thumb, like Matthews had.
    Or a bone bruise like Shields got.
    Or a strained hamstring like Casey Hayward got.

    Those won't bother me at all ;)
    But really, I just want to see FLAG CITY on them early on.... force them to stop their cheating grabbing.
    I remember a game, loss at Chicago, for us 3 or 4 years ago (only win Cutler has over us) Where the zebra's flagged us 19 times! 2 denied Interceptions for our defense.

    Could not disagree more. Let them play. Not saying don't call anything... but it has gotten ridiculous in the NFL. There is nothing worse than a corner or safety making a great great athletic play and getting called for hardly touching a receiver. Let the players decide the outcome. IMO

    I'm talking ab out the quick double-moves, where the CB quickly grabs the WR jersey as they are about to run past them.
    Or the crossing patterns where Jordy or Cobb get to the inside and are about to separate across the field, when the CB grabs the jersey. THOSE illegal holds slow down the WR and allow the DB to stay right there even though they are beaten.

    The same things Woodson got away with from 2008-2009 regularily, but then started getting called.

    If they're going to call the grabbing they better call the Broncos' picks plays too. I just want to see it equal on both sides.
