Good morning everyone. Over the entirety of this young season, a lot has been made about the terrible terrible officiating, particularly during 49er games. There is just no two ways about it, the officiating in all three games has been beyond awful, and is probably the leading cause of both losses. People are justifiably pissed off, but now is when it has to stop. You see, NFL referees are like some disgusting combination of the cable company from South Park and Langdon Cobb from Futurama. That is, they feed on our negativity. Lets face it , this is a football blog, and we are talking about officiating. I share part of that blame for bringing it up again, but it stops now, at least from me.

Anyways, the 49ers play the Eagles tomorrow afternoon, and if they happen to lose again, they could be in serious trouble. The Eagles offense is very good, but the defense is almost non existent. Gee, I wonder where have I heard that before? They who shall not be named aside, the 49ers have been a terrible football team in the second half. Hopefully, getting Anthony Davis and a few others healthy will help some. So far, my ridiculous prediction hasn't worked, neither has calling predictions stupid. So for Sunday, I am going to actually give my real opinion. 49ers win 31-17, HUZZAH! Now lets get to those links...
