I think Niners have 50/50 chances of winning, could go either way. But to be a lock of the week? Whoa! I hope he's right and the Niners blow them up like they did to TB last week.
Yeah man, the Bucs Dline are no slouches either and they got handled pretty easily by our Oline. If we can win that battle this week too, it's gonna be a long quiet game for Detroit.
Agreed. Also, Best doesn't scare me, he won't be the one to break our no-100 yard rusher allowed streak. Our front 7 will handle any pressure on the QB and stopping the run. The main concern should be how quickly and creatively the blitz schemes can get to Stafford before he throws to CJ. Niners face the Cards and Fitz twice a year, so Fangio should be able to scheme a lot of double-teams and players should keep CJ's catches to a minimum.
As for our offense, OL must keep AS upright before Suh breaks through, a lot of screens and 3 step drops should do the trick as well as plenty of DW and VD on the field at the same time. Also, toss sweeps to Hunter will balance out the runs up the middle for Gore, keep them guessing.
