Game summary: Who’s got it better than the 49ers? Q4-:03/NO: On a repeat play, the Saints try some passing razzle-dazzle, the 49ers don’t buy it, AND THAT’S IT. 49ERS WIN IN AN UPSET!!!!

Posted by

Today’s the day for the San Francisco 49ers, their head coach, Jim Harbaugh, and for the team’s legion of loyal and moderately long-suffering fans (I write from the perspective of a Chicago Cubs partisan). For the players, it’s time to see how much postseason glory their fine 13-3 regular season will buy them. For Harbaugh, […]
