The heartbreaking Minnesota loss should keep this team from becoming cocky and resting on its laurels.

Brett Favre's game-winning magic made the 49ers realize they haven't "won" anything yet.

It's a 16-game season, and perhaps a playoff game.

Who knows?

But the ride has been awesome. Remember what Ronnie Lott once said?

(I'm paraphrasing.)

"It's the journey, the camaraderie, the playing for something that's important."

That was then, and Ronnie Lott this week said the 49ers had to pummel the Rams after the loss to the Vikings. Well, the first half was flat, but these guys woke up in the second half.

As the photo shows, the 49ers humbled the Rams.

A shutout with Steven Jackson on the other team is still something special, no matter how bad the Rams are. If you aren't seeing this 49ers team in person, you are missing something special.

Candlestick is rocking like the days of Lott.

If you can get a ticket, I suggest grabbing it.

Thanks, Jed York!
