49ers Fans To Play Vital Role In NFC Championship Game

Much has been made of the San Francisco 49ers support that drowned out the Los Angeles Rams in Week 18.

San Francisco secured their playoff position away at the Rams with a 27-24 win that day.

The 49ers and the Rams face off again for a shot at the Super Bowl.

Rams coach Sean McVay is clearly concerned about the influence the fans had during the Week 18 clash.

“They got a really loyal fan base. They’ve got a great tradition, and history, and it’s a short trip. So, credit to them. They made it difficult where in a lot of instances, you’re kind of absent of your verbal communication. If they get as loud as they were when our offense was on the field — in certain parts of the field it was really noisy,” McVay said. 

“It was really difficult to operate. And so, you almost have to handle that situation like you would an away game. … I am very confident and excited about the loyal Rams fans showing up and, hopefully, it’s going to be a great amount of energy cheering for us.”

Meanwhile, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has issued a rallying cry for 49ers fans to repeat the trick.

“Faithful, they travel tremendously. When you could get your fans behind you like that in a road game, and we knew it before the game even started, there was a lot of red, you could see it. But once we started making plays and they started getting loud, it just changes the momentum of the game, I think,” 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo said Wednesday. 

“And you could feel it on the sidelines. It’s not just something that you could put your finger on and you can’t see specifically, but you could feel it, you could hear it. And our team responds well to that. Hopefully, the Faithful will be out there loud and proud. I know they’re trying.”
