Five Reasons The San Francisco 49ers Will Choke In NFL Playoffs

The San Francisco 49ers have been darlings of the NFC since they benched started Alex Smith in favor of second-year passer Colin Kaepernick. Despite a loss to St Louis, Kaepenick has looked strong both passing and running the ball and has inspired the 49ers' offense.

And of course the defense is just as good, if not better, as last year. For a team that just barely missed going to the Super Bowl last year, it seems logical that they will be the team to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl this year.

However, I don't think this will be the case and here's why.

No Go to wide Receiver? ? ?

Ummm yeah your right Moss is old and Crabtree is not the "Go to guy" buy you completely forgot about maybe their largest off-season transaction. . Mario Manningham, the guy they went and paid in order to fill the position that they knew they needed. And if you don't think Manningham is the right guy your obviously an Idiot Redskins, Eagles or Cowboys fan who doesn't appreciate a proper Superbowl run... Maybe check the roster before you go writing an article..

Mario Manningham has 441 yards and 1 touchdown. That's not "go to guy" worthy in my mind.

I still think the Patriots might make it to the Super Bowl . Who know's, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady?
Like old times.

Yeah you look at the AFC since '03 and it's the same 3 quarterbacks in the super bowl every year, Brady, Manning and Roethlisberger, which leads me to think it's gonna be one of those two because the Steelers aren't that great this year. My gut says it'll be Manning.

After I read your comment regarding the Tate "touchdown" vs Packers... and you felt it was the "right call", I wondered how good or bad can the rest of what you say could be. There must be something more to this so I checked it out, feeling it can't consistently be that far off the rails. Turns out it is. What I see are some extremely eak and ill-thought "insights" on the 49er's imminent choke. Is this stuff based on a dream? Or something? Look, I digress - but it appears to me (correct me if I'm wrong) that you write down odd, disconnected, clearly imaginary thoughts on pieces of paper, then put them in a hat and draw randomly to create a "piece". I shouldn't even write this. I think I'm being generous in giving credibility. There is a Creative Writing class in your future I'm sure. My opinion.

If the 49niners will become in the final the only way will be is using Alex Smith as a starter QB, let the stupid coach to know this.
