1) When Miami has the ball, they play like Green Bay, minus the whole Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, Greg Jennings part, but similar concepts.
2) Defensively, they have a huge DL: Jared Odrick 6'4 300, Paul Solai 6'4 345, Randy Starks 6'3 300, Cam Wake 6'3 275. The 49ers will struggle to drive them off the ball, limiting the impact of the running game.
3) The Dolphins play extremely hard, I've seen almost all of their games, they just don't have enough playmakers beyond their core guys (Wake, Bush, Tannehill).
4) Tannehill will take some chances, onus is on Fangio not to let him get comfortable.
5) If Roman sticks to the same gameplan of blungeoning opponents with the run (Miami's strength is run defense), it will be a 4th quarter game.

The past two weeks the offense has put up 17 points and 13 points....I predict that this offense will continue to regress.
Very possible. We are down to Moss, Crabtree, Jenkins, VD, Walker at pass catching. Other than Jenkins, I don't see these guys have the quickness of Williams and Manningham for an added dimension at receiver. And we are struggling to find another Kendall Hunter. Might have to depend on Kaep's running even more.
With now three weeks of game film on Colin Kaepernick, and a very under-rated defense, this is not going to be as easy as some think. Although RGIII and Luck have gotten all the headlines, Ryan Tannehill has been playing at a very high level also. Any other year, Tannehill would be that talk of the league. He is much more settled than anybody thought he would be as a rookie. He won't go down easily.
49ers may be playing to make up for the embarrassment of yesterday but they also better not overlook the Dolphins while thinking about Brady and the Pats.
I wanna call this as a close one, but after every loss/tie this season we've won (W-W-L pattern), and have won by 30+ points (with Seattle being the only exception). Not to mention we've already outscored 2 AFC East teams thus far by 79-3. -We're also coming home off of our second s**tty back-to-back road trip, and will wanna play strong before the next one.
Now it won't be a shut-out/blow-out, but I see us fixing our mistakes, and Kaep having a better game in his home environment. -The onus will be on Jake Long's absence, every time an offensive line is missing one starter (or more) we've totaled about 4+ sacks, and 7+ pressures (specially on the 'Smith' side).
