The Niners have a huge task ahead of them in game one: win at GB in the first game of the season.
Usually, opening home games are a challenge for the visiting team, because no matter how bad the home team may be, their players and coaches are up for the first home game, want to impress the home crowd, etc.
And GB is not a bad team. Add the extra motivation of an opening game to their likely desire to erase the memories of their last game--a playoff loss to NY--and they will likely be highly motivated.
The Niners were a much better defensive team than GB last season, and that's likely to continue this season. Harbaugh's teams respond to challenges and usually show up ready for big games (last season's Baltimore game being an exception, but understandable given the short week and travel involved).
Harbaugh will have the Niners ready, I believe, but what can we expect? More blitzing on defense? More of a running game on offense to keep the ball away from Rogers and GB's passing attack? Or will the Niners come out slinging the ball to their new WRs to surprise GB and take advantage of their weaker defense?
I know the game is several weeks away, and we've got preseason games and training camp yet to complete, but Harbaugh and co. have said that they're planning for game one already--so what do you guys think they're gonna do to take the opening game momentum away from GB? I bet they've already studied GB and theyre planning something.
