Mike Singletary is the real deal and I hope we have a new rivalry that last's for years as we meet in the playoffs to see who goes to the superbowl. Always did like the Niners, but hate the Falcons(dirtybirds).WHO DAT
Back then 49ers dominated the Saints so it was more like a one sided rivalry plus these two teams do not play each other every year even once now.

That's what I meant when I wrote in a sarcastic way,"(kinda rough on us back then)".
Being from Texas you may not realize that the Saints and the 49s were in the same devision for 20+? years and we played each other twice a year every year, course with the expansion the Saints are now in the NFC South and the 49's are in the NFC West
but we could easily be playing each other every year in the playoffs. That's what I was eludeing to, in fact I'd imagine the 49's would like another shot at us in the playoffs, course I'd like to have home field advantage thank you vary much. The Saints of old were good at losing games they should win, and winning games they should lose, course some years they just lost most all there games. It was painfull.

My hometown is San Jose though. I lived in SJ for 15 years.

Yes, I do know both teams were in same division. Saints have only 1 SB as a franchise though. Alex Smith did outplay Drew Brees.

SF in general out played the Saints, I watched Brees play just about every game since being with The Saints. When he's on his A game it's a thang of beauty, when he struggles he seems to know how to still win, he seldom beats himself and handles the ball with extreme care.

The 49r's have a good team and great fan support, they will go far and are definetly on track.

Not only do the Saints only have one Superbowl victory(My Dad must have roled over in his grave)they have really only had a handfull of seasons that could be called anythang but a disaster. 39 freekin years, but I knew this team was gona do it, do you have any idea how many games I've seen the Saints lose like SF did. I remeber when I was a young man being in a bar in the French Quarter partying we went in a bar and there was Kenny Stabler and half the Raiders in there partying like it was new years eve, man these guys were wasted, made a call and placed a large bet on the Saints, figured they beat the spread, lost that bet. Went to the grocery store and came out to find 4 Saints tickets on my windshield wipers, went to my neighborhood bar and couldn't give them away. People wearing bags on there head at the game, it's all true, but threw it all we still loved them, even if we wanted to kill them. WHO DAT NATION

49ers fans are everywhere. I think 49ers probably have the most fans in the world.

I was rooting for the Saints to win it all since they had never won it anyways in the playoffs, plus the Katrina after-math. Good for that city. It seems to rebuilding fast and growing. This year, sorry it won't be the Saints in the SB.

Well trust me, growing up in the 90's, we were used to winning and whenever we actually lost, you would know! Football is a big thing in the Bay Area, CA.

I really like Singletary, he has changed this team and the attitude around.

Way too live up to your standards 49ers and keep your fan base on City-data.com alive! haha just kidding.

But what is wrong with your guys team? They look good, but than they look awful, and they're 0-5.

Another reason Singletary should be fired

"he was going to bench Alex Smith and Alex smith said I'm going back in the game


So you know he is a real joke

How can the same QB look like the worst in NFL history two straight drives and then look like Brees the next? Then the last drive he looked awful again.
