http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000151114/article/nfcs-early-frontrunner-seahawks-49ers-falcons-duke-it-out

This was from the front page of the NFL.com website. Different 'experts' from nflnetwork/nfl.com discussing the likelihood of the falcons or Seahawks overtaking the :49ersmall: this year.

I THOROUGHLY enjoyed it :D (of course I never take Dameshak seriously :lol: )

I don't like all this national media Seahawks positivity. It's weird. I feel like I suddenly woke up with hair. :)

Man........I am not use to all this good publicity. Clearly I was looking and reading the wrong articles when I made that thread a couple days ago about people dissing the Harvin trade.

That would be weird :lol:

I do agree, it is strange being a favorite by so many.

I was just thinking the other day when I saw the oddsmakers had Seattle tied with the Niners as super bowl favorites and I can't think of a time where we were ever the vegas odds on favorite to win the super bowl. I'm sure there are others who spend more time wagering in vegas than I, but I'm not sure it's ever happened. It's strange indeed.

I don't mind it so much though, I do like the underdog role we've had for so long, but if the attention can just keep half of the posts complaining about how we get no attention, off the board, it's a good thing in my book

I really like the FAlcons offense a lot. But I feel like Pete and John are putting together the most balanced, complete team in the league.

One is the result of carefull planning and great moves, the other would be a miracle! I'll leave it up to you to figure out which is which.

Hopefully the Seahawks are Five Guys. In-N-Out is overrated, imo.

Perhaps (I happen to love both...probably too much lol) but In-n-Out is waaaaaay cheaper, and I dont personally notice that much of a drop off in quality.

But five guys is really, really good. We have another new place down here in AZ called SmashBurger that is right up there too.

I'm still not very impressed with the Falcons. Their entire team is basically built around 4 players: A QB, two WRs, and a very old but very good TE. I feel that if Seattle played at Atlanta ten times, Atlanta would win twice. The fact that we spotted them 20 at halftime and still should have won says it all. The way we lost in the Falcons game reminded me a little of when the Saints lost to us in the 2010 WC round. Everyone knew the Saints were far superior, but we had homefield and a lot of unusual things happened in our favor.

I'd be mildly surprised if the Falcons made the playoffs next year. New Orleans will probably win 10 games. Carolina finished the season with the look of an 11 win team. Tampa is very talented and if Freeman has a good year they could be scary. The Falcons are IMO the least talented team in that division, but they have a great home field advantage and a great passing offense. And as good as Matt Ryan is as a QB, I was shocked at how weak his leadership was in the playoffs. His confidence is about as steadfast as Jay Cutler's or Tony Romo's.

I also wouldn't be surprised if the NFC West produced 3 playoff teams next year. I think the Rams might have 10 wins in them if they continue their rate of improvement.

Every time I hear "Five guys" I immediately think of something inappropriate. From Japan. I know I can't be the only one.

Obviously, the 49ers would be the five guys option.

Bite your tongue. In-N-Out is far superior.

Yup it is......

Ask for a 2 x 4 instead of the stand by double double. You won't be disappointed.

Atlanta is a bigger threat than SF IMO. We match up well with San Francisco.
Falcons have a suspect defense.
Green Bay has no running game.

Seattle is prime to take the NFC this year. Lets win that superbowl this time while we're at it!

i knew this comparison would be made, that the Seahawks vs 49ers is turning into the NFL equivalent to the LSU vs Alabama game in NCAA.

As a LSU fan in NCAA, i hope the Seahawks do much better then LSU has done against Bama.....
atleast i know i dont have to worry about the niners buying their way into the superbowl and stealing one from the Seahawks like i had to go through with LSU and Bama....

I tend to agree about the Falcons. I can understand the fans wanting Gonzo back very badly, but the team and players pushing for it as hard as they did, instead of a next man up or draft a successor in a great TE class this year, or improve defensively, get a running game established, is telling. He is IMO the greatest TE talent the NFL has seen, and I don't fault them for making him feel a comeback would be awesome, but actively intruding on his offseason like they did smacks of a desperation that they shouldn't be subscribing to in their position.

Truth! Zip's is awesome!

Going back to the article, it's cool that the writers are supporting our team.
Reading the comments on the article is also funny. Lots of 49er fans arguing that their team should be on top.

Smashburger is good! But Tilted Kilt's Big Arse Bleu is the best burger I've had in ages.
