How 'bout them Niners? Last week was a very pleasant surprise. It definitely made sitting outside for four hours in 35 degree weather worth it. I'm not sure my face has ever been more numb than it was last Sunday. And, oh, it was sweet seeing that sea of red that showed up to Qwest Field dejectedly leaving the stadium. Especially the assholes who were sitting about five rows above us. Completely silent when the Seahawks were winning, but as soon as the 49ers tied it up, the smack talk began.10am game. Ugh. Opponent with good passing offense. Ugh. Road game. Ugh. At least Steve Slaton is on the IR, and Matt Schaub has a dislocated shoulder. I'm still expecting a tough game, though.
My Hawk: Nate Burleson. 5 catches, 80 yards, 1 TD. Plus a long-ass punt return that makes things exciting in the last 5 minutes of the game.
Score: 27-20 Houston.
