Middle of the pack: It was a tough call between “middle of the pack” and “should contend,” but it’s hard to declare the Niners full fledged contenders yet. They closed last season 5 0 with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo taking the league by storm and changing the perception of the franchise. Those wins don’t mean much heading into 2018.
BUT THEY CAN SCOREThe are the second best offensive team in the league, scoring 3.51 goals per game, which could make life miserable for Jets goalie Steve Mason, making his first start in four games. The Jets are fourth offensively at 3.28 goals per game.

Fun to be on a blog to share and read about similar and very different fan experiences. As much as most of the years under the yorks tenure as stunk and reminded me of the warriors previous owners, myself and niner fans far older than myself have it good that we have seen five championships in a life time, i hope my kids can say the same, my oldest son was born right before the last super bowl against the chargers but the kids have been fortunate to experience giants and warrior championships..
Couple of things I heard over the Holiday. One of my son in laws is from Boston and is an rabid NE fan, along with his family and friends, many of which are season tix holders.
