The other thread was getting hard to load. I'm not trying to steal Mr. Fucillo's thread, I haven't seen him around so I'll start a new one in his honor.
Hey guys, this is Fooch from Niners Nation. It's been a long time since both our teams were consistently good, so maybe things are back on the upswing in the Bay area and the Motor City. While I'm solely a 49ers fan, I have enjoyed seeing the talent Detroit is putting on the field week in and week out. It's hard not to be entertained by Calvin Johnson, Ndamukong Suh, Jahvid Best, and so many more.
Our two teams last met in 2009 and the 49ers have actually won the last seven contests between the two. I'll enjoy that record in the abstract, but this year's Detroit team is nothing like some of the previous Detroit teams, so previous wins and losses mean nothing. But I had to mention it!
Each week I've set up a FanPost at the opposing team's blog so you guys can ask any questions you might have about the 49ers. I believe that the more we know about the opposing team, the more we can enjoy the game on a slightly more detailed level. Some disagree, so it's not for everyone.
I'll post a link to this thread over at Niners Nation as well and get some of NN's readers over to help answer questions. I'll jump in as well, but I won't begin to pretend I know more than anybody else about the 49ers.
This thread is primarily for learning more about the team, but smack talk is not discouraged. Let's just try and keep things civil heading into the game and have a good time.
One of your guys set up a FanPost at Niners Nation. If you want to join in the comments, the registration comes with a one-day wait period. Post a comment in here that you've joined and I'll waive the wait period.
