San Francisco set an NFC Championship record with a 17-point comeback win by shutting out a Falcons team that put up 24 first half points. What it tells me is that this 49er team can win even when it’s not playing its best football.
I’d like to see a raise of hands for all those who thought Kaepernick was a good idea at mid-season. I thought so. How about all those who thought Harbaugh was nuts? That’s more like it.
Three weeks ago Colin Kaepernick could have been the caddy for John Daly. I mean, NOBODY knew who this guy was outside of the Bay Area. Suddenly, he’s Joe Montana. No, wait, he can run. He’s Steve Young!
When it comes to a World Series prediction most the pundits like to base their prognostications on tangibles – Things they know, see, and can understand (You know, put a number on).
The Oakland A’s run into the postseason reminds us that it’s not always about a high payroll. Not always about luxury suites. Not always about what we don’t have, but rather what we do.
When Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera was sent packing along with his supply of steroids, I had Marty Lurie on Gameday. He thought the Giants would have to do something to compensate for losing a bat in the line-up that produced a .346 batting average, testosterone or no.

What a weekend. The Giants are in prime position to win the West, the A’s are the greatest story in baseball, and the 49ers marched into Lambeau Field and sent a stern message that THEY are the team to beat in the NFC.
Eleven walk-off wins will transform any big league clubhouse into a frat house. The only thing missing from the A’s clubhouse Sunday was the keg. At least I couldn’t spot one.
This was the supposed to be the official coming out party of the ready-for-prime-time A’s. Uh…not so ready.
