Tonight the nation witnessed The San Fransisco 49ers rise as the best team in the NFL. From the opening snap until the final whistle, the 49ers looked like they were playing against a high school team. Last week, The Chicago Bears held a high powered Houston Texans offense to thirteen points.  The Bears defense had no answer for Colin Kaepernick and Vernon Davis.

The young backup quarterback looked like a seasoned veteran behind center. He was precise, calm, and more effective than Alex Smith has been in his entire career. Kaepernick went 16-23 for 223 yards passing and two touchdowns. Davis played the role of Superman against one of the best defensive backfields in football.The veteran wide receiver caught six passes for 83 yards and a score.

The 49 defense was unforgiving, pounding Bears backup quarterback Jason Campbell on several occasions. It seemed like he went down more than Glass Joe from Mike Tyson’s Punch Out. The front four of the San Fransisco defense played like it was a scrimmage. I’m not sure Chicago’s line got the memo that blocking was mandatory.  Aldon Smith is the best defensive lineman in the NFL. Patrick Willis is the best linebacker in the NFL. Smith recorded 4.5 sacks on the evening. He is on pace to best the 31 sacks Reggie Smith piled up in his first two seasons. Willis added 7 total tackles on the night.

The only thing that can stop The 49ers is a correct Mayan prediction of our demise in a few weeks. For everything that Atlanta, Houton, and Baltimore have shown this season, nothing has been as impressive as this win for San Fransisco. This is the elite team in the NFL, and depending on weather or not Alex Smith is reinserted as the starter, they are the probably Super Bowl favorites.
