The Niners & Cowboys Playoff Game Will Be Epic

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

This Sunday at 3:30 pst the fallen from grace, self proclaimed America’s Team, Dallas Cowboys make their way to Santa Clara to take on one of the best 49er teams I have seen since the 90’s. I know, a bold statement. Arguable at best. Maybe I’m just getting caught up in the nostalgia of the “Catch” of the 80’s. The Troy Aikman led cowboys of the 90’s. The running joke based on hall of famer Michael Irvin, “Why do the Cowboys play on a dirt field, because they smoked all the grass and snorted all the lines.” We will never forget TO’s mid star celebration. Something Jesus himself would be proud of.

The story will be about who is this Purdy kid? How can he hold up against a strong front seven with Micah Parsons lurking around. Next to the Chiefs this might be the toughest matchup Kyle Shanahan has had to game plan for all season. We know how that Chiefs game went.

This is a different team though. CMC is clicking on all cylinders and has found his place in the offense. Probably the best mid season acquisition in the history of the NFL. Debo is healthy, Diggs will be locked on Aiyuk who I feel will give the 49ers the advantage.

The problem lies with quarterbacks who extend plays. Dak Prescott can do that. While I love the Niners secondary, it does have holes that can be exposed. Let’s hope pick city shows up. This defense is extraordinary. Led by, who in my opinion, should be up for MVP and a lock to be defensive player of the year, Nick Bosa.

Ticket prices for this game are through the roof. Last check on the app, Gametime had nosebleeds between 4-500 and lower seats over 1000 a pop. I hope the suits can bring the noise. If the Chase center has shown us anything, rich people like beer and yelling as much as us priced out regulars. Hopefully they stay off their nanny cams long enough to take pride in the decades long tradition that is Cowboys and Niners playoff football. Lessss Go!!!!!
