The Niners are sitting at 2-1 after defeating the Lions last week, but the next three games (@NO, NE PHI) will be a big test for the resurgent club. They do have some injury concerns though with Shawntae Spencer headed to IR, but the Saints have far more injuries that the Niners right now. They've also got an interesting look at Vernon Davis and his progression, or lack thereof, over the past couple of seasons.
The Hawks picked up their first win of the season Sunday over the hapless Rams. They jumped out to a 17 point lead in the first quarter and never looked back. They finished with almost 250 yards rushing and dominated every aspect of the game. Things get tougher for the still injury-riddled Seabirds though with the next three games consisting of two cross country trips (@NYG & @TB) and a tough home game (GB).
It's an awful time to be a Rams fan and believe it or not, things will probably get worse before they get better. Marc Bulger has been benched for a senior citizen with serious concussion problem and some fans are saying, it's easier not to watch the games at all. On the bright side, they have found some 'teams' that they can beat though.
