Results headed into Week 7
How we got here:
- At the end of the season, unsurprisingly, 49ers fans were only 81% confident in the direction the team was headed.
- Things took a turn for the better after free agency, as that number climbed to 95%.
- Before the draft, the number dipped to 84%, and climbed two percent after the draft, to 86%.
- Heading into the preseason, we started sipping the Kool-aid again, and that number climbed to 90%. Now, with real football here, that number is at 89%. That’s the 11th highest number out of all team sites.
- Following the Week 1 victory over Tampa Bay, we’re up two percent, which brings us to 91%.
- After blowing out the Bengals, the confidence soared to 96%.
- After defeating the Steelers, despite turning the ball over five times, we’ve bumped that number up to 98%.
- With a bye week, that number may have dipped, or even plateaued. Not here. Up 1% to 99%
- Despite blowing the Browns out, our confidence dropped from 99% to 96%. The loss of Kyle Juszczyk and Mike McGlinchey should explain that.
After dominating the Rams, that number jumped back up to 99%. Leading up the last Sunday, several podcasts referenced how Los Angeles had scored 30+ points so many times against San Francisco, and how their offense was built to beat the 49ers defense. It sounded good until the two had to actually play football.
Rest of the NFC West
Our “friends” at Field Gulls stayed at 82% after last week.
Turf Show Times did not remain the same. They plummeted to 25% after scoring one, read: one, touchdown against the 49ers.
Revenge of the Birds is getting a taste of what winning feels like. They’re up to 74% after being 15% two weeks ago. Good for them, and I’m sure it will last!
Which early Coach of the Year candidate will win this season’s award?
A bit disrespectful to list Shanahan with these other no-name coaches, isn’t it?
