08:00 AM ET 09.19 | Without Ted Ginn and Brandon Jacobs, the 49ers haven't skipped a beat and remain the pick of many to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. [Ginn and Jacobs] are still inactive, but their replacements have stepped up in such a major way that head coach Jim Harbaugh is having reservations about plugging in his veterans when they're healthy. Ginn and Jacobs were in the locker room on Tuesday, and they looked healthy. ... [Harbaugh] is enamored with the idea that his opponents know as much as the rest of us with regard to who will be on the field Sunday. "There are a lot of possibilities there," Harbaugh said. "And you like to have your opponent think about all those possibilities."

"Enamored" like he's enamored with apples and carrots.

Of course he is going to ride the hot horses to the finish.

They came out of the gate very fast, but they're not even to the first turn yet.

True, a lot can happen. But this team was a couple special teams fubars away from being in the Super Bowl last season. They are playing at the same level they played at last time around.

When it looks just too good to be true, well, it usually is....

Hernandez goes down, and the Patriots end up dumpster diving for replacements. Having Ginn and Jacobs in reserve is a good thing for the Niners, not a problem.

True. The Packers came out fast last year but couldn't compensate for a porous defense. SF has the D, and if they stay healthy, will be tough to beat.

Yeah, my daughter graduates from college next year, and she's looking at the same problem.

Sounds like a mixed drink: I'll have a Ginn and Jacobs on the rocks, with a twist.

Yeah, I was so happy when the Giants wiped that smugged smile off his face last year in the NFC Championship and then followed it up by wiping that bland expressionless look off Beli's face in that loss in the Super Bowl for the 2nd time in four years two weeks later. Plain and simple, it makes no difference..."they just can't beat us" " and this year will be no different"

Heck...college grads for the last 10 years have been saying that...glad I got out just before.

OAN: These 2 clowns in this article will still have jobs, I bet they will still get paychecks. I'll take that over the scraps that I get..

If anyone knows him and is interested..........Cooper is back.........I talked to him on the NFL Tebow thread from yesterday...........

September 19, 2012  10:48 AM ET

Wait till har-BOY sees Jacobs in action--- he will know then why the G-Men didn't sign him...

Belichick always looks that way. It's hard to tell the difference.

True, lack of depth has wiped out many hot teams fast start.
