and this was said my a mod...


"QB - Edge - Vikings. Favre may i say more?
HB - Edge - Vikings. Gore is good but no where near AP and coffee is no where near CT
WR - Edge - Vikings. When healthy our recievers can burn just about any team
Oline- Edge - Vikings. I really dont follow oline so i dont know anybody on the 9ers but our oline is pretty good.
TE - Edge - Push. Davis is a beast but shiance is coming up fast
Dline - Edge - Vikings. Williams wall plus allen is enough but edwards seems like this is his year to sneak up on everyone
LB - Edge - slighty Vikings. 9ers have willis but altogether we have the edge
secondary - Edge - 49ers. I like our secondary but 9ers are better with clements and company
Special teams - Edge - push. No one dominates in special teams but allen rossum and harvin can take it back just about any time

Should be a good game but i expect a blowout"

This is from a mod or "coordinator" over there at the Viking forum.

BOOOOOOOOO

TE - Edge - 49ers Davis is a beast but shiance is coming up to a 0 yard game
Dline - Edge - Vikings. Williams wall plus allen is enough but edwards seems like this is his year to sneak up on everyone
LB - landslide edge - 49ers. 9ers have willis. PATRICK f**kING WILLIS. Period. They win in life.

My account is still in review so I can't post yet
nedney and john c reilly


and

I think this is an interesting game and I'm very interested to see what the game plan will be. Remember last year when the niners tried to do a shootout with Brees and the Saints? I'm hoping we actually understand ourselves and our opponent a bit better this game. Some interesting things to think about.

Matchups:

- AP v Willis: We may have the best match-up for AP. Not only is Willis a sure tackler that will not allow AP to slip tackles, but he's also got the speed to chase him to the outside. He can't do it alone. Here we will need help from our D-line, mostly to slow Peterson down, and not get completely pushed out of plays. Even a hit will do. Lawson's speed will also come into play. As will our secondary's ability to support the run. AZ was on Nate's shoulders. Seattle needed to come down to our pass rush and Gore. Pass rush was quite, but Gore made up for it. This game will be on Willis's shoulders.

- Jared Allen v Joe Staley: Staley's shown the ability to shut out the league's best pass-rushers (see Porter, Joey). However, we are very vulnerable if the pass rusher moves to the other side (see Porter, Joey against Sims, Barry). This may be a day that Vernon Davis spends at the line of scrimmage. Look for a number of 2 tight end sets, with Davis helping to hold down the right side. The bottom line is that Allen will most often go against Joe, and if Staley has another strong performance, we can be taking away a major weapon of theirs.

-Rachal, Baas and Heitman v The Williams duo: We're going to be running down the middle. Don't think we're going to run against the best run defense in the league? We will. Singletary's game plan will go something like this: "We're going to run 21 down he middle. Got it? Great. They have the what ranked run defense? 1st? Hmmmm....Ok, lets do this....we'll run it down the middle with Gore. Sounds good? Great." Singletary can't get away from his tough philosophy just because of a tough opponent. That would contradics him. In other words, this is a stubborn run game. We'll run it, that's a given. The question is how well? . If the three niners mentioned above have good games you can chalk this up as a W. Otherwise it may be a loooong game for our defense and punting unit. The good news is that we're expected to loose. Rachal is expected to get dominated, and the Williams duo is expected to do well. As Matt Maiocco put it the other day, the niners will be betting with the house money.

-Favre v Niner's secondary: Favre loves to throw it up for grabs, and the niners have made a point of grabbing recently. Clements often gets eaten alive by mediocre receivers, and that worries me. Given that, and Favre's ability to be Favre I expect a few deep plays that will really hurt. Expect those too. The question is, can we get some of those Favre passes to come our way? Can we make a few picks (1 may not be enough)? can we get good returns on those? Can we turn those into points?

-Shaun Hill v Jimmy Reye: You know what Jimmy Reye and Mike Singletary have in mind (see up-the-middle, run). Even if our o-line has the best game of their careers, the Vike's D-line will force runs that go nowhere. It will be on Shaun Hill to convert 3rd and 10s, 3rd and short, and red-zone/goal-line scores. Jimmy Reye may call a few runs on short yardage situations, but by the 4th quarter it will become obvious that Hill must lead this offense.


Strategy

As I stated above I don't think the niners will change their strategy. I think they will go in and say, Ok, we both have great running backs, both have tough defensive opponents for those backs, and will both run regardless. We will both rely on our QBs minimally. We will hope that even if Favre makes a few big plays, our secondary will force enough turnovers to make up for that. Gore's and AP's fumbling problems may be the key. At the end of the day, turnovers may be the key to this matchup.


OR......

The Vikings could be a much better team, and we've just played crappy teams so far and will get eaten alive in Minnesota. Sunday will be telling...

Not just our secondary. Our entire defense has played awesome so far. They're getting to the QB, stopping the run, creating turnovers, etc. They need to do the same this week. Hopefully they're up to the challenge.

If you would read what I wrote I made it clear that Nate's had a phenomenal season so far. However, he's been known to get beaten by mediocre players throughout his career (Lance More from last year comes to mind). I think we've played very well, however there are some matchups that we do need to watch out for. What do you think of the match-ups? You think the niners will roll into Minnesota and just walk all over the Vikes? Why don't you enlighten with your game analysis.
any chance we could start putting a list of opposing teams forums on these gameday/pregame threads? would be kind of fun to see what they all think!
