Confusion Turned Anger Turned Fear Turned Happiness!

 

Confusion Turned Anger Turned Fear Turned Happiness!

Is the Dynasty Back?

 

Oh, yes…the Atlanta Falcons were more than a little upset. Although, so were the 49ers fans all across the country when the NFC Championship Game first began yesterday afternoon. When those teams went head-to-head, it looked a great deal like the 49ers had either stayed at Candlestick Park or, perhaps, were upset about the whole Lance Armstrong revelation that he made to Oprah Winfrey. Being down 17-0 at one point? Come on! Apparently they were saving their energy in order to release a big surprise.

 

Well…it didn’t matter where the slow start came from, because in the end, it is ONLY the end that counts. And the San Francisco 49ers made sure that the end was exactly what it should have been (no offense Atlanta fans).

 

Yes, the Falcons stadium was extremely loud. In fact, that is the one stadium in NFL history that, I swear, the ‘higher powers’ can hear from their lofty perch. However, it seems that the helpers (AKA the angels) came down to make sure that the Falcons stadium would grow to nothing but a hushed whisper of complete and utter outrage as a future 49ers dynasty, perhaps, began!

 

In only his 10th NFL career start ever, Colin Kaepernick, tattooed QB of the 49ers, will have his first start in the Super Bowl. Now, even if you are a fan of the rivals, you have to admit that a Falcons game versus the Ravens OR the Patriots would be little more than boring. At least with this, having a basic rookie at the wheel will be extremely interesting to watch. Not to mention the fact that this ‘newbie’ showed complete patience, control and poise that many of our ‘old-timers’ do not. Heck, even Peyton Manning has to be sitting in Denver saying to himself, WHAT?

 

And, another small fact, THIS was the San Francisco 49ers ONLY three-game winning streak this season. Yet again it’s great that they kept the best for the end!

 

So what the heck happened? I suppose Kap left his home, hugged his 100-pound tortoise named Sammy goodbye, and made 425994his way to Atlanta with a dream and a hope. Of course, he also had extreme power on his side, being that he had already set the record – all-time record, by the way – of most yards in a game for a QB. Atlanta was primed and ready to stop this ‘running man’ – and they did it, beautifully. What they forgot, however, was the fact that even though Kap can run like Steve Young used to – he can also throw like Joe Montana used to. In fact, it looks like every good trait of the 49ers ‘old’ dynasty is rolled up inside of Number 7.

 

Are we jumping the gun? You bet. There IS an AFC side to this equation, but there are a great many people loving the fact that after all these years the Niners have finally re-struck gold. Being a team that has five Super Bowl trophy’s, it’s not exactly like the Niners can whine about their history. But, BEING that they have five, they have forever tried to live up to all those accolades. Who knew that it would take a tattooed ‘beauty’ to walk out on that field and bring them back to the ‘Big Show.’

 

This is a team with many stars, and a defense that is ready to take home a sixth championship to their fans in San Fran. Not to mention, they have a coach in Harbaugh who has not only done a great job, but shows extreme loyalty, heart and soul to his team.

 

Things to remember? The San Francisco team is young in all the important areas – most especially QB and wide receiver. This team also made some silly mistakes (from the fumble on the one-yard line to the missed field goal) that will have them coming into the Super Bowl with a vengeance. They are hungry, to say the least…

 

Are they hungry enough? Is this the year that the San Francisco 49ers are reborn and a new dynasty begins? Let’s just say that it’s going to be one heck of a game, and even though it’s being played in “The Big Easy” – this match-up will be anything but!

 

Congratulations Niners! Well-deserved!
