I'll be driving my dad to Oregon during the game so my prediction is we'll win since I can't watch.

In reality my expectation is we'll lose, so far our weakness on defense is more stopping the run than stopping the pass, with CMC and Deebo I suspect that will be an issue.

We might catch a break, Aiyuk is expected to play with a shoulder that he missed last game with but now Deebo is on the injured list with a knee and it's not clear yet if he'll play.

Niners got beat by the Bears last year. God knows how. So anything can happen. But Niners are rolling and I don't see how we win this one.

I'd be more than happy with another close competitive game and no injuries.

This stuff cracks me up. These so called experts don’t see or know anymore than us. NOW, we are better than we thought. Well, if you’re the expert……
Meh. Most of our fans agreed with the media that this team would be terrible this year. Of course that could still happen, but I think it's safe to say that it's not only the media that is surprised by the team's level of play so far.

Agree. But we are not the experts. Not one EXPERT predicted more than 3-4 wins ranking us 32nd in the league.
So, are they really experts?

We are more of an expert of our team than pretty much anyone not inside the organization. The experts aren't going to worry themselves with digging deep into a team that looks like they will suck.
