A Graphic Look at How the Niners Win
Updated from my week 9 look at this.. how has the Niners defense and special teams rank against the rest of the league? We keep hearing that it’s been a major part of their success.
All I Do Is Win - An Ode to Tebow and Winning
How do Tim Tebow do it? How do the Broncos keep winning? We know it’s not due to his passing abilities, but it’s here where we start mentioning the intangibles that are always spoken about every year around NFL draft time. It’s known that Tebow does most of his damage in the 4th quarter, but what else has contributed to the Broncos going 4-0 in the month of November?
-Increased passing accuracy in the 4th quarter, going from 36.4% in the 3rd to 56.4%
-TD’s thrown in 4th quarter: 5. TD’s thrown in 1-3rd: 3 total.
-Tebow leads the league in rushing YPA at 5.8
-In the past 3 games, rushing 74.07% of the time
-First down rushing %: 66.67%
-In the past 3 games, not allowing any rushing TDs
-In the past 3 games, suppressing opponents to only 26.19% on 3rd down conversions
I’m pretty impressed!
How the Niners Win
So how have my beloved Niners been winning? Is it the Harbaugh effect? Maybe the San Francisco drinking water? Specifically, I noticed it’s by defense, namely rushing defense and takeaways, and also, special teams. Leading in own and opponent field position says a lot for this special teams unit.

It’s the Hair.. or is it?
