After watching the MNF game between the Niners & Steelers, I am convinced the former is the team to be reckoned with. None of the top contenders have seen a defense like the Niners. San Francisco is a team built for the playoffs. The defense is solid like steel, a formidable bunch of toughies, "Patrick Willis and The Shock and Awe Gang". The secondary is also "becoming" more of a physical group of defenders inflicting punishing blows to the recipient of the football (shows flashes of the Ronnie Lott, Dwight Hicks and the Hot Licks era). The offense is like a train, Alex the operator and Gore the locomotive. If the offensive line protects Alex the way they did against the Steelers, there is no doubt in my mind that they will go all the way to the Super Bowl… and take it all. The two losses (to Baltimore & Arizona) were mostly due to the poor protection by the offensive line… something like 16 sacks combined? So, if they can protect, we can collect… it’s simple as that. The "Architect" definitely knows what he’s doing… he talks the talk and walks the walk.
"Could" we be seeing another Niners dynasty in the making?
