re: NFL Thread: Week 4 - RIP Steve Sabol GOAT - Anyone see that GB/Sea game?
Don't double post. Other teams hit just as hard as the Niners. The difference is that the Niners actually take people down with great tackling. They actually wrap people up.
Also Harbaugh inherited this team. I'm not sure he's gotten more out of most of these players than anyone else has. Vernon Davis was great under other coaches. The defense has been a top unit for a few years; the defensive line is the biggest improvement over the past two years. Frank Gore is the all time leading SF RB; ie he's been good for a long time. It's all about Alex Smith's play. He was the final cog to fit into place. Harbaugh clearly is a great QB coach/mentor.
Genesis, how is Eli mentally stronger than Cam Newton?
