What I took away from watching the Bears vs Packers game in relation to the 49ers

If you can pressure the QB, I don't care if it's Rodgers, Brady or Brees they become ordinary. The 49ers defensive players have great athletic ability. They have brute strength (Cowboy, Soap and Ray) along with the best linebackers on the planet. The secondary is just starting to get its' due. They'll be getting ink in the near future. What are the odds that when the new stadium opens there are one or two more Super Bowl Banners along with the five that will be there.
imo, either the packers defense is good or the bears offense was bad. Last night, i think it was a little bit of both.
15-1

1 loss??? I guess if we rest our starters in week 17 that can happen.

I don't think this is entirely true. At some point, QB's fall in love with there arm and try to stay behind the LOS too much and forget the fact that they are athletes and can run.

Steve Young was great at this along with his OC's. When we played a team that had a consistent pass rush, we would start the game out with Steve acting as a RB and running the ball rather than scrambling. This kept the DL at bay and made it a little easier.

JH is great at understanding that his guys are football players first (e.g., Kaep last week and Alex last regular season vs NYG) and specialists second. There is a way to beat an aggressive front and it's to have the QB make one read and then run the damn ball.

No, both teams are solid.


We are just that damn balanced.

the bears are not solid, defense is not that great, cutler is not a leader and is a turnover machine. chilo rachael did not help them, marshall is over rated. the packers still not not run the ball, they are a one trick pony who wil only be successfull in a handfull of towns. thier defense is sub par cept for two players
Week 11 - MNF 11/19 - Bears AT 49ers


11/20 - Lovie Smith fired as head coach of the bears
Should make Thursday night games only for teams coming off bye.

I think the 1st couple weeks in the nfl are often misleading. From matchups to home vs / away what you see is often a illusion. I think it's wise to not overestimate anything you see early in the nfl season.
Marvin, glad you came around to my opinion of Joe on Matthews. As I have noted elsewhere, playing with a nose swollen up all over your face makes it dam hard to see what's going on right in front of you. Nonetheless, staley comported himself well, 1 on 1 with matthews. Giving up 2 sacks in that game is nothing to be ashamed of, because it means the rest of the time he played well enough to keep matthews away from alex.

49ers made GB just look like a good team getting beaten by a better one. When they played a game against another team supposedly bound for the playoffs, the Bears, GB looked all world. Maybe the 49ers are a tad better than some think? As for alex, with 20/26, 3 throwaways, and 3 drops by Delanie, I would say, yes, he had one helluva nite....and didn't look spectacular in doing it. He has for the first time in 7 yrs had a great coach(for the 2nd yr in a row), who is also his OC, QB coach, and play caller that knows all the things that alex needs to do to succeed...and do so, without looking like superman. Yes alex manages this team well, but even the doubters are begining to see that alex has all the tools to become a great QB, starting with his being uncommonly smart.(finished 4 yr college in 2 1/2 yrs). His passes this yr compared to when noln, sngletery were here, all of a sudden look polished, professional, and he has no doubt as to what to do in difficult situations. I said all along to hold onto your opinion of alex til he a) got a good OC/HC and b) got a very good OL. Didn't mention having the league's best D and best STs in league, but those also help a ton. Result: alex is going to be Qb of our team that goes to SB and wins. First we have to win another 13 games (or more).

In the end we win it all because of Coach H, alex, frank/hunter, WRs, TEs, OL, entire D, and STs. Looking at each one right now, I don't think I really would want to change places with anyone from any other team...and that includes brady, brees, peyton, eli...even tho those guys are headed for Canton. I like the cards we got dealt...and really like us playing this hand...with these guys.
