The Rise of San Francisco 49ers

+

Hey guys, this a new feature we have been introducing on my website Juiced Sports Blog, thought you might find it interesting. Thanks. After years of disappointment and failed coaches, the San Francisco 49ers have done more than just put themselves back on the football map in 2011 — they’ve put together the type of team that could (key word, could) contend for a Super Bowl title. After a work-man-like 20-3 drubbing of Big Ben and the hurting Steelers, the 49ers showed they’re not playing around. But are they playing well enough to beat the NFC’s elite? Are they Green Bay’s greatest threat? Also, we examine the rise of Alex Smith: once an inevitable goner, Smith has turned around his career just in time to be the face of an offense that continues to improve. We analyze all of this and more. A Happy holidays to you and yours. We, are Juiced Sports Radio.
