Proof, the venerable scribe at Proof Positive, decided to post a picture of a 49ers cheerleader dressed in an uncharacteristically modest outfit. Judging from the background, it was a cold day in the city by the bay.
Underneath the photo was this charming quip: "When called by a panther, don't anther!"
I’m not so sure Proof wouldn’t “anther” if the Panther shown here called.
The oddsmakers are making the 49ers a 6-point favorite against the Panthers with an over/under of 43 total points.
James Brady of Niners Nation thinks the 49ers can't overlook the Panthers, despite the latter playing some poor teams saying, “To put it simply: the Panthers are an opportunistic team that plays aggressive football. They can be taken advantage of, but it won't be an easy game.”
The Carolina Panthers’ five wins were against opponents with a combined record of 8-33. The Niners have won five straight against opponents with a combined record of 13-28.
For the first time in five years, the Panthers are least two games over .500 after eight games.
Proof is a good buddy and he’s crazy about his Niners. This is going to be a chippy game. I detest Colin Kaepernick for his arrogance. I detest Cam Newton for his as well, but they both can move the ball.
