|—||Jim Harbaugh on Alex Smith|
San Francisco 49ers go to Atlanta to face the Falcons in the NFC Championship game. This will be the 49ers second consecutive NFC title appearance for the first time since the 1992-1994 season. And this is Atlanta’s first playoff appearance under HC Mike Smith and QB Matt Ryan.
Coling Kaepernick and Michael Crabtree have career-high performances. Kaepernick finishes with 276 yd and 2 TDs and Crabtree finished with 172 yd and 2 TDs.
Let me state for the record:
I am 100% behind Smith.
my main man.
STALEY ON SMITH:
"He wants to play. He made his feelings known yesterday with the comments that he made. He’s itching to play, and he feels he should be out there, but it’s the coach’s decision," Staley said. “That’s the way he’s handling it. … I know it’s eating him up inside, but I know Alex, the kind of man he is, the kind of character he has, and he wants to see the team win. But he wants to be out there on the field.”
alex smith is the epitome of an unselfish teammate. willing to do what it takes to make the team better and see his team/teammates win. he has endured a lot in sf. he deserves to win. people are so quick to excuse all he’s done for the team to bring them back to glory. i really hope he starts this week. it’s something to be proud of, though, as a Niner fan. knowing that we have so much depth at every position that we can put anyone in and they will perform. but i’m gonna be so mad if Kaep starts over alex. justsayin’
The San Francisco 49ers announced they have placed WR Kyle Williams and RB Kendall Hunter on the Injured Reserve List. The team also announced that RB Jewel Hampton has been added to the active roster from the Non-Football Injury List. The team also added WR Chad Hall to the practice squad, and waived S Eddie Whitley from that unit.
Good day for the 49ers, bad day for the NFC West running backs. The 49ers and Navarro Bowman have reach an agreement on a 5 year extension. Bowman leads the team with 129 tackles, posting double-digit tackles in 9 of 11 games, has led team in tackles 8 times.
Aldon Smith becomes(9 sacks, 3 games). Von Miller (8 sacks, 4 games). J.J. Watt (5 sacks, 4 games).
Ahmad Brooks and Donte Whitner, each with crucial pick 6’s against Drew Brees.
not to take anything away from Kaep, but the defense hella saved him. still a good game played. but this QB controversy thing is getting annoying. -__-
