Thanks to the Minnesota Vikings for that humiliating beat down, which was directly responsible for the video game scores that would follow in the next two wins.. 79-3. Yeah, the experts are still fawning over New England, Houston, the Bears, Atlanta, the Ravens and of course the World Champion New York Giants. The 49ers? Strictly second tier. As for the Giants, who come to Candlestick Sunday, Jim Harbaugh will say they’ve got an elite quarterback, all the weapons, and they’ll give us all we can handle. Only this time, he’ll actually mean it. Yeah, it’ll be the first playoff game of the season. At least it’ll feel like it. By the way, if you can’t get excited about the New York Giants taking on the 49ers, take a cab to the airport and catch the first flight to Palookaville… cuz you don’t belong here. Ted Robinson and Eric Davis will have all the action… 1 o’clock Sunday on ESPN 1320.
