This week's bonus round of "Niner Talk" touches on the final regular season game at Candlestick Park.
I can't believe it's already here.
I started going to games in the late 80s with my dad and have been to at least one game every year since. I have so many fond memories and I don't want to share them all just yet. We'll have time for that. But it's important to note that the good folks at 49ers.com and 49ers Studios will put together some amazing tributes this week. You have to stay tuned.
Let's get to your questions before I need a box of kleenex.
Although Gore didn't reach the 100-yard mark, he surpassed the 1,000-yard mark for the seventh time in his nine-year career. At 30, Gore continues to be one of the best running backs in the league. Even his quarterback,
I'd agree with that and so would Tampa Bay's defensive line.
That could mean more pass targets for Manningham.
Don’t screw it up. Seriously.
That's what Jim Harbaugh said this week. He is honored to be on the sideline coaching the 49ers in the final regular season game at The 'Stick, but he doesn't want to ruin the experience for everyone involved.
Harbaugh knows it's important to the players for this year's playoff run, but he also understands the deep meaning it has for the 49ers Faithful. Lastly, Harbaugh recognized the significance of the game for former 49ers players who have poured their blood, sweat and tears in Candlestick.
Harbaugh, and the 49ers, want to win the game for everyone who's ever been associated with the team.
Thanks for watching. There was an event on the field postgame for young Buccaneers fans, so we didn't shoot on the playing surface. No problem though.
Another trip to the playoffs. I can still remember the feeling of watching other teams play in the postseason and not being able to be involved.
You don't want to be sitting on the sidelines when you can be competing for the Super Bowl. It would be nice to get a few presents here and there, but I'm looking forward to a potential third-straight playoff berth the most. The 49ers need a win over the Atlanta Falcons or an Arizona Cardinals loss to the Seattle Seahawks to clinch a playoff appearance.
This question also gives me an opportunity to wish our readers a Merry Christmas. Thanks for all your support this year.
@TaylorPrice49 Would it be possible to get field passes for MNF?— Lisa (@TheMo1980) December 16, 2013
If only I had a dollar for everyone asking. I would have $37 in my pocket. This final game at The 'Stick is the like Willy Wonka's golden ticket. If you're able to be in the building, enjoy it. Being on the field is great, but being in the park one last time, that's all you can ask for.
That's it for this bonus round. I look forward to your questions next week.
Thanks for reading.
