SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS VS. GREEN BAY PACKERS GAMEDAY THREAD (Week 13)

Our oline is decimated. Baas has a concussion, Rachal is injured (again), we have a backup LT, and the other two linemen are still rookies. Without a solid oline, it doesn't matter if Gore or Westbrook is back there running the ball.

I sure hope that Solari, Brown, and Johnson devise a plan to solve that 3-4 front, otherwise we'll see Clay Matthews in the backfield harrassing Blacksmith A LOT!

Thank god! Let's hope Rachal won't start.

Accck....big suck.
We can take Rodgers out of his game by keeping our offense on the field running the ball. They are 18th in rushing D. Also, they don't have a running game to speak of either so we could use more defensive backs as opposed to LBs to counter him. That would make that O one dimensional even with Rodgers.

Our OL must continue to build off their momentum from last night. They have to move the chains and keep using Westbrook and Dixon to pound them all day like they did with AZ. We just may be able to keep Rodgers from scoring too many points.

However, there are so many aspects of this game that go against us like a short week, traveling back East, different time zone and of course the loss of Gore. Still, I think we actually have a chance as long as we can use the same blue print that worked against AZ.

I believe we take a page out of Atlanta's defensive game plan to stifle Mike McCarthy's offense.

This may be closer than peeps think. I'm expecting a loss so anything positive in this game is a bonus!
Dear Secondary,

Please for once this season against a good team look for the ball and create a turnover. Minimize the big plays and don't miss tackles.

no kiddin, this might be a good game to morph to a 4-down nickel base. on o, troy's gonna need to nail those touch passes to the flat and underneaths. would also be a real good time for crab to get "in sych" with his qb..

I wonder if it is easier for us to run against 3-4 defenses because Iupati is pretty much free to hit the second level or DT and that's a big force to run behind. Rachal is also good at hitting the second level.
We're gona get whupped. Bad.

This may be very true. We can't get sucked into the "they suck against the run" thing because that's what happened to us with Tampa.

Yeah, we made the Tampa adjustments after the game, as usual. Now GB will come out with something to stop us and we will adjust for the team after GB.

We have to watch the Atlanta film. For once, checking the film is a good thing - just not OUR film.
Do not let anybody attempt to block Matthews Jr. one on one for any extended period of time.
Let's be real... If we limit our turnovers we may have a chance to steal this thing
This brings us to the crux of the matter. Will the loss of Gore mean the Niners will also lose some of their offensive predictability? Will whatever they lose in the Gore/Brian Westbrook exchange be more than offset as they swap out a bit of physicality for finesse -- the real F word in Santa Clara?

It sounds logical, but Singletary sounded emboldened after his team rammed the ball down Scottsdale High's throat Monday night with 261 rushing yards (most since 2006) on 47 carries (most since 2006).

Physical with an F worked against the Cardinals, but this season has shown that here-it-comes-try-stop-it isn't always effective.

Yet a possible harbinger of more-of-the-same-to-come was revealed during Singletary's postgame press conference.

After Troy Smith threw for 356 yards against St. Louis, Singletary praised him, but mentioned -- more than once -- that he had room for improvement.

Asked for his assessment after Smith completed 48 percent of his passes for 129 yards against Arizona, Singletary didn't offer a discouraging word regarding the Human Handoff Machine.

"When I look at Troy, this is kind of like what we would like to be able to do," he said. "It's not necessarily the group blueprint, but we would like to be able to run the ball more successfully. Our offensive line, hopefully they're continuing their maturity and their development and we can do that. We'd like to take all the pressure off Troy that we can and just allow him to make plays that are there and not try to force anything."

Say this for Singletary.

The man may be going down after this season.

But it appears that he'll do it his way -- exiting the stage, in effect, by running right down the middle.


Good analysis
