Beware of the Trap
There is something about this game that makes me extremely nervous. I kind of felt the whole time that we would beat the Broncos I never thought we would for a second think that we would not win and that’s the honest truth. But this game against a 3-9 Cardinals game makes me nervous. Seriously I have turned into adp this week with my nervousness.
The Seahawks are clearly the better team on paper, and talent wise and should probably beat the Cardinals in every aspect of the game but I can’t seem to get rid of the jitters. Maybe its because the Seahawks don’t play as well on the road as they do at home, or maybe its because we are coming off a big win and kind of expect a let down against a inferior opponent, no it’s the former.
For one the Hawks are crazy inconsistent, Fitzgerald and Boldin will kill us if we can’t learn how to tackle damn it. I swear Trufant is the only guy on that team who knows how to tackle. The Cards have been operating a lot more out of the gun since Leinart got the job and that will make it harder to get pressure, and without pressure the Cards have all the skill positions to tear any defense apart. So we need to stop the Cards and get a win, they aren’t going anywhere but boy would they love to tear our season apart.
This is the most important game of the season so far. With a win and a 49ers loss we clinch the division for the third year in a row, but more importantly Dallas and New Orleans are playing each other this week. If we win this game based on the Cowboys, Saints game we will either be in the drivers seat for the 2nd seed in the playoffs or have Dallas off of our backs I want the 2nd seed so go Cowboys.
Lets take advantage of this lets get a win. We are the better team we need to show it on Sunday for 4 quarters. We should win convincingly but I am still nervous. Beware of the trap. Beat the Cardinals take destiny into our own hands.
Only good thing is last time I was this nervous about a trap game we won 42-0 against the Eagles last year, lets get the same results.
Quick Keys to the Game
Run the Ball
Be balanced: I mean when I say run the ball don't do it 6 times in a row like in Denver.
