Let's be real.
We are playing in their home opener and the first time we get the ball, the fans will be screaming their living guts out. Hill and his OL are going to have to be able to come up with some type of signal system to allow them to communicate in such a loud environment. They get that system down and run it well on Sunday, Gore will out gain Peterson by a significant amount.
That amount depends on just how much the OL can translate their first reads into success for Gore or Hill. As much I have been a die hard Alex Smith fan, Hill made me believe that his leadership skill coupled with his innate ability to sense the D makes him the perfect candidate to lead us to the promise land. Why not?
However, the QB position is not at question here, but the "bell cows" for both teams. Gore? Peterson? Ah, the suspense can be cut like a knife through cold butter. Still, we have to get the crowd out of the game by executing and most importantly, finishing!
This is our first mini playoff game and we have to finish and not keep Favre in the game with second and third chances.
Let's see if we can...the NFL's eyes are watching very closely on this one.
