Once again, I would like to point out, that the Packers had the 2nd highest scoring offense in NFL history last year, and they were easily the most unbalanced offense in the league. They have added a RB coming off 3 straight 1000 yard seasons as well.
The NFL is different then 20 years ago...the run is no longer a must if you can effectively use the short pass to set up the rest of the passing game.
Stacking the box will effectively take away the 49ers key to victory (ball control) if Alex is forced into a duel with Aaron Rodgers, against the most oppurtunistic defense in the league no less, he will have to play at a level in which he has never played in the pros.
Please watch the highlights of the 49ers big comeback against crapadelphia eagles last season where we overcame 3 touchdowns in 1 half. We did NOT abandon the run, and Im positive the Eagles D is not much worse than the Packers is. You obviously dont know much about our team, but all of us 49er fans know for a fact and are TELLING YOU, that the 49ers never shy away from the run no matter what, and we are also telling you that you cannot run the score up on us. Absolutely cannot, we have the capacity to strike back whenever needed, but we will get ahead early, and keep it that way.
