We have more questions than answers:
Are the 49ers really as good as they looked in Sunday's convincing 30-22 victory over the Packers in Green Bay, and is it too soon to book a flight to New Orleans?
Will the NFL pay its officials whatever it takes to get them back on the field before the replacements cost a team a victory or cause a coach to have a heart attack or, worse, a player to be seriously injured?
After beating Colorado 30-28 Saturday to stun a Pacific-12 Conference team for the second year in a row, will Sacramento State do better than last year, when the Hornets shocked Oregon State in the season opener but wound up just 4-7?
With the Giants winning two of three against the Dodgers over the weekend, and two games on national TV, will baseball writers in the rest of the country finally agree that catcher Buster Posey should be the National League's MVP?
With three more games against the Angels, three against the Orioles, three against the Yankees and seven yup, seven against the Rangers, can the A's possibly hold on and make the playoffs?
If your four teams have not announced the signing of any players just two weeks before the scheduled opening of the season, can you really call yourself a "professional" sports league?

Here are some rules of the road:
Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "Report Abuse" link to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.
Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.
Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.
Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand.
Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.
Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.
Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.
Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.
Don't flag other users' comments just because you don't agree with their point of view. Please only flag comments that violate these guidelines.
