I was skeptical when the Niners deferred, wondered why risk letting the Patriots take a lead. But the Niners’ defense has been stout, and they scored on their first possession. It is to their advantage to play with a lead.

    If only we could have seen the first half of the first quarter. Thanks NBC.

    The 49ers should always defer, away or at home.

    Having a good defense, we have a good chance of stoping the opposing offense. Crowds are always pumped up at the beginning, by stopping the home team, our offense will possibly have a good field position, and a less noisy crowd.

    I’d always defer at home too, to let opposing offense deal with our crowd (I wish the new stadium will be more decibel friendly). Plus, we can start the second half with the ball with a plan according to the game situation.
