    Didn’t even know that they still worked in America. I sported the bunny ears of shame, usually after failing to pay Dish or Direct TV or what not but thats been well over ten years ago. I imagine you out in a cabin somewhere in Alaska.

    this is an absolute beatdown

    San Fran's o-line is out of this world good. Along with the blocking of Kittle and Juszczyk they've turned Mostert into Jim Taylor.

    KC's is probably second best. Nine out of the ten starters are overachievers, a coincidence I'm sure.

    I do have a remote but I have an old box TV that you need an aerial for. I understand that most TVs are now flat screen.

    At this point the saga of my TV is probably more interesting than the game.

    Walter Cronkite was a liberal propagandist so I'm not going to watch him on my TV set.

    Lurkers take note -- Extra Point is using 1970s technology.

    I remember Davante struggling as a #3 receiver back in the Nelson days with Jordy as the #1 and Randall Cobb as the #2. While Adams has improved he's still nothing close to a true #1 WR; reminds me of when the Rams had Tavon Austin (LOL) in that position.

    The 49ers need to take the confidence they get from this game into the Super Bowl and not let the media hype about the Chiefs affect their minds.

    (Assuming they don't choke this one away, of course).

    All year long the entire Packers defense was all about the "The Smith Brothers" as the white defenders were seen as nothing more than cardboard cut outs. If the Packers lose this game where they are being run over will the media point a finger at "The Smith Brothers?" You know what is good for the goose is good for the gander. My guess is the media won't focus on them and blame the defense in general.

    As for Extra Point this might not make you feel better but I sympathize with you. I know what you are going through.

    Not that I'm nostalgic for the ancient CRTs, but I don't like these so-called "smart" TVs - they usually end up being too smart for their own good.

    you know it's a blowout when we start talking about TVs.. LOL That was an ugly game from start to finish for Green Bay. It seems ARod is destined to only win One Super Bowl..

    Adams eventually developed into a number one receiver (his 2018 season ranks with Jordy's best), but GB's problem is they have nothing for their number two and three receivers. Kumerow should be one of them but it's unlikely he'll ever get that opportunity.

    Now's the time for the 49ers to keep doing what's been working and above all avoid using the prevent defense, which only prevents the team using it from winning.

    Stoneberger with his first TD catch, and acts like he has been there before. I like it.

    Nice match-up for the big one. KC starts seven Whites on offense when Sherman is in the game, and starts Sorensen on defense and Nieman plays a lot of snaps. SF starts seven Whites on offense and has a superstar on defense. About as good as could be hoped for in the permanent Caste System era, especially considering it could have been Baltimore vs. Seattle.

    I always thought John Lynch would be a fair GM by NFL standards. He was good as a TV analyst, on a par with Troy Aikman, though I recall a few posters didn't like him.

    He was also a great safety and should be in the Hall of Fame, esp. in this watered down era of entrants. Hopefully his success as an executive will be enough to get him elected.

    Is there anything more uninspiring, corporate, generic yet gaudy and loud than post season playoff gear churned out by fanatics year after year?

    Rogers has the same problem as Brady. Inconsistent (to say the least) limited receivers.

    Lancaster and Lowry seemed to hold their own. A lot of the 49er success running was outside the tackles.

    That Kelly TD for Tennessee was fun. He ran a great route and showed soft hands.

    The one announcer noted that Rogers is from Chico and went to "nearby" Cal. Cal is 160 miles away.

    Good match-up for the Super Bowl anyway.

    Well....just about everything else you see advertised on TV during NFL games. Including the NFL itself.

    The corporate borg is growing daily.

    Ivie had all of two tackles for the season and is no longer on KC, so for all intents and purposes KC's defensive "contingent" is composed of Sorensen and Nieman. That's two White defensive players out of approximately 25 on the roster. That makes the Chiefs but a very slight improvement on defense over the three other teams you mentioned. Detroit hasn't had White players on defense for a long time, same with Tennessee except for Karl Klug who was way underused. Their coal black traditions on defense were entrenched well before hiring Belichick acolytes. And many of Nieman's snaps came about as the result of injury, while Fat Bastard did his best to replace Sorensen with Thornhill until Thornhill was injured.

    The "Patriots way" of very few White players on defense has been the "NFL way" for decades, with occasional outliers that never seem to last more than a season. It was around before Belichick and it will be around after he retires. There are no "White friendly" defenses, not even any "relatively White friendly" ones. Green Bay comes closest with three White starters, but it's still a mostly black defense. I don't see the Belichick coaching tree being any different from any other coaching tree when it comes to defense. I have also mentioned my hope that Vrabel will use his now fortified stature to lighten up the Titans some, but with the NFL we're always talking very small increments. The Caste System always wins.
