The Road to 7-9, Week 5

The difference-makers need to step up & make plays today. There's no question that in the National Football League, you've got to play physically and execute. You gotta play to win, not to "not lose." The team that minimizes the run and sets up turnovers by opening up the penetration is gonna win 9 times out of 10. The crowd has so many weapons, and you've got to dominate the red zone in the National Football League. No question.

Nobody cares about this game. If the Niners don't win, I think I'll just watch old clips of the glory years on YouTube for the rest of this season. (1981 NFC Championship game: The Catch. Montana, Clark, Walsh, Landry, some fans at Candlestick in serious pimp garb... and Vin Scully calling the game.)
