***SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS VS. DETROIT LIONS GAMEDAY THREAD ***

goddam i really hope we annihilate the lions

Detroit's strength offensively is their passing game. Defensively, it's their line. Just so happens that those two units face off against the two aspects of our team that have been the most suspect this year: the defensive secondary and the offensive line. These two units showed a lot of improvement today against the Bucs, so it will be very interesting to see if we can up the day to day improvement that has been the manta of Coach Harbaugh since he got here.

We lose next week, we're still in great position to take the division and make the playoffs(legitimately, not 7-9 style).

We win next week, though, and it might be time to start using "special" to describe this team.

Matt Stafford won't be throwing the picks that Freeman did. Plus we will have to defenedn Calvin Johnson. I still say we can win the game and the other key will be to run the ball to wear out their defense and keep the ball away from them. We need to use our new offense to get an early lead in this game.

Isn't that Thankgiving?

Yup and it's the NFL Network game.
I'm always a little nervous facing off against good quarterbacks

I don't think Suh plays DE.
the lions don't have a great offensive line. for the past 2 weeks, we have really had to account for a scrambling qb. not so this week. detroit doesn't have a running game that scares you (although best can gash you at times).

obviously you have to worry about calvin johnson but i think pettigrew could cause us the most problems (as TE's always do). still, i think we come out on top. much like the eagles, the lions have a good defensive line and not much else on defense
I hope the Lions win tomorrow. I want the Niners to be the first to beat them. That would be f**kin' sweet man.

Both teams have great D lines and average O lines. This will be the toughest game we've played so far this year.

Aldon Smith and Books are going to be very important for us next week. We will shut down their run and then they will throw it a LOT. We have the players to rush the passer. I hope Aldon is on the field all day.
The Lions will be much tougher tto beat than the Bucs. Also, it's a home game for them, while we once again travel East. Hard to predict the outcome, but I think our OLINE performance will be the key to the game (I guess it always is). The 49ers coaches, so far, seem to be doing a good job coaching the players, what to expect, etc.

Matchup of the week. Best out of their respective positions coming out of last years draft.

We will see which one is the better player.

according to siragusa his name is "lapooey"
Hope the 49ers stay at Ohio from Wednesday to acclimate themselves to the time difference.
