Niners Get (Some) Love From the Media

As many of you are aware, the 49ers received little love from national media outlets after our come-from-behind victory over the Eagles on Sunday.  What attention we did receive centered around the Eagles' alleged "meltdown."

If Stafford throws a TD pass to Calvin Johnson, we get to hear how awesome they are; but when Alex Smith does it to Morgan or Davis, we get to hear how much the Eagles' defense must obviously suck.  When Gore makes a strong run over Asomugha, we get to hear how he's the "worst tackler on [their] team"; but if that was Blount getting the TD I'm sure it would instead be credited to his "power."  They barely even managed to mention how Justin Smith (a freakin' defensive end) hustled like a beast to cause that fumble on Maclin, and when they did it was a sub-plot to the bigger story of "here goes Maclin again with his fumbling."

No credit where credit is due, but we would prefer the under-dog role, anyways, yes?  Regardless, the media actually gave some proper attention to the Niners after Sunday.  Links below the jump.
