    He always knew 49 ers are a more complete team . Not just a one man show . The one man show could not beat the titans , you need a team

    Niners were humbled and battle tested all season. Ravens we’re doing nothing but be cocky and say they were already SB champs. Glad to see my Niners continue. 😤

    Steven A you are a real hater you are beginning to get on my last nerve as a matter of fact you have got on my last nerve in your irritating Lamar Jackson is the best quarterback even other teams like him you are just say true hater

    ThatguyNicePrije 4 mjeseci

    That was an embarrassing take by SAS. He's made the program a total joke and let Lamar's play expose him for not really knowing football. That's why he's unnatually animated & hysterically loud to overshadow that he's clueless or pretending, if schtick & comedy skits is the direction the network wants to take sports entertainment.

    If he says anything good about Lamar, he will have to admit that he was wrong.

    Without the rainy conditions, and on neutral ground, how do y'all think it really plays out? I don't think it's as close as ppl think. SF is for real. BAL got lucky with a field goal as time expires (Don't forget Robbie Gould isn't missing the kicks that SFs backup kicker has been shanking) Not to mention just having Kittle and Brieda contributing minimally has a SF win written all over it.

    kiyan westPrije mjesec

    Z. Scott i mean it was rainy for Lamar too and he had no receivers against a good defense stop the excuses

  21. Angel Navarro

    Angel NavarroPrije 5 mjeseci

    Honestly I'm a 49er fan but to be honest are you guys impressed by the whole ravens team or just Lamar Jackson because that's what it sounds like not gonna lie good game but dam if it wasn't for Lamars running game I dont know how it would have ended but I'm not gonna say "but what if" give the whole team credit

    Yaboi LilDepressoPrije 5 mjeseci

    spazzdineveryway yeah and then the Ravens said aight fine we’ll just have Andrews, Ingram, Tucker, Hill, Hollywood Brown, and our defense beat you. And wait a minute containing means having 2 TDs dropped on your head? That’s containment to you?

    Nah, 49ers held the ravens to there lowest score, stats, and made Lamar fumble for the first time. The 49ers are more impressive

    Niners. Ravens had some help.

  62. Jay Krainert

    Jay KrainertPrije 5 mjeseci

    They because Jimmy G cant hang on to the ball. He has 5 lost fumbles (9 total fumbles) at minimum 3 were in great field position for other team. He needs to hold on to the fucking ball when he gets sacked

    Haters gonna hate. I love it this the same energy that motivated them to come out on top. I look at every team each to specialized in different areas why is it so hard for haters to accept the ravens. Not too long ago we had the best defense in the league where was all the haters then ?

  80. Matt Johnson

    Matt JohnsonPrije 5 mjeseci

    Just one adjustment and the 49ers win this game. The DE's for the 49ers were responsible for the run, they ignored Jackson and crashed on the RB. Next game I guarantee the DE's will be responsible for Jackson, ignore the RB and hit Jackson every time he keeps or pretends to keep ball, let the rest of the DL and LB's take stop the RB.

  81. joseph D

    joseph DPrije 5 mjeseci

    49ers should of drove the ball with 3 timeouts before the half. Take a shot to score a td, if not, take 3 pts. Get as close as you can in fg range. 4 & 1and you pass? Mostert avg 7 ypg! Why not a counter run, or QB sneak. If you're going to pass then why not throw a screen to Juzyczck or Kittle.. It's all good 9ers will learn from it
