Hate the Whiners, tired of the Chiefs. What an uninteresting Super Bowl! Go Chiefs I guess.

-8 ( +2 / -10 )

The Detroit - San Francisco game must have been painful for Lions fans to watch. I genuinely feel for them.

The Kansas City Chiefs, however, were sharp!

I didn't see the first one, but they should have kicked the field goal on the second one. It was a real momentum shift right at the end of the game.

Take the points!

Then don't watch.

And your team is...? Did they even make the playoffs? Sitting at home crying into their jockstraps.

The last pick in the draft makes the SB in his 2nd year amid trash talk that he's just a product of the system and the players around him and incapable of a comeback. Down 17 at the half and come back to win. Yeah, I like their chances of beating the Chiefs and their fake cheerleader.

The Lions probably got the jitters in the fourth quarter seeing that big lead disappear and never having been in this position. Drops and bad decisions all over the place. Brock Purdy is a definite upgrade over Jimmy G so the 49ers have a better in this Super Bowl versus 4 years ago, but I am not betting against Patrick Mahomes. This is a huge matchup. Nothing like the NFL!

Coach Campbell has been going on 4th down all season so not surprising he did again but in this case taking the 3 was the smart thing to do.

As a Niners fan, I was not too worried when we were two scores down or even 3 scores down. Sometimes it just takes time for the team start to firing especially as we have Mr. Irrelevant as a QB and only his second season in the NFL. He's learning.

The article fails to mention that the 49ers defense started to show up in the second half after gone missing in the first half.

It should be a good game against the Chiefs in the Superball in two weeks.

A lot of mistakes by the Lions in the second half, and more than a few Godsends for the 49ers. That's the NFL for you. And as a lifelong fan I certainly won't miss my 58th Super Bowl.

You got into the playoffs due to your aggressive style of playing during the regular season.

Do you change your style because it is a playoff game?
