Usually, when the San Francisco 49ers win, the confidence polls reach the high ‘90s, at worst. Couple that with a Seattle Seahawks loss and both teams meeting in Week 17, I was certain Niners Nation would be among the leaders in fan confidence. Injuries are mounting, and the slow starts have led to frustration. Because of that, 49ers’ fan confidence rating dipped 4% this week to 87%. That’s the lowest vote since we did this right after the draft.
That number still has us fifth overall, but it’s been a while since Niners Nation was outside of the top three. This is surprising considering what’s happened and the stakes for Sunday. Looking around the NFC West, the Cardinals climbed from 65% to 76%. They’re eighth overall. Our friends at Field Gulls dipped from 80% to 28% after being humiliated by Arizona. Turf Show Times is one spot behind Seattle. The Rams fan vote went up from 18% to 26%. Nice job, guys!
My unpopular opinion: I enjoy watching Patrick Mahomes more than Lamar Jackson.
