There's no such thing as a guarantee in this league (unless the question is, are the Patriots cheating?). San Fran are having a horrible, horrible, horrible.... horrible year. We should all be glad we aren't Niners fans right now. Their last loss to the Patriots means that the 49ers are officially out of playoff contention. It's that bad. Still, even a snake with it's head cut off can still kill you, and during last week's game San Francisco hung around within three points of the Patriots for almost the entire game. Cue Niners fans... Then in the 4th quarter Brady sliced them apart and demolished any hope of an improbable uspet. That must have felt something like how the Rams fans felt on Sunday After the loss, Chip Kelly came out saying how he couldn't pinpoint one area on the team that needed fixing, and that they were often just a half second away from sacking Brady and stopping the Patriots. Sound familiar? I'm glad we've been on the other side of that story recently. Still, the story isn't over, and even though the Niners are wounded in the secondary, their receivers played poorly, and their season is now more about whether the coach or GM will be fired (or both), there will still be a football team on the field on Sunday. A bunch of guys who might just be fed up and hungry and wanting to win something for a bit of self-respect. It's hard to say the Niners match up favourably against the Dolphins in any area, however, the Dolphins OL might still be significantly banged up, and as we saw against another poor team in LA, they can struggle. Our LB's and secondary too, still have issues with tackling at times. Add in the 'any given Sunday' mantra and for all the signs that this should be a walkover, maybe, just maybe, the Niners fans could once again believe there's a chance. I mean, they shouldn't have been able to hang with the Patriots all that time - but they did. A crushing blow will be dealt on Sunday in Miami - the only question is will it work out where Miami size it up, come in riding high and feeling indestructable... Or will the Dolphins continue to deliver and send the Niners to look for gold elsewhere? So what are your thoughts - guaranteed Phins win - or might we end up with that sick feeling, rolling around on the floor?
