SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS VS NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS GAMEDAY THREAD (Week 15)

Blitz Brady up the middle. Take away Welker's drag route. Remain stout against the run (Ridley's a stud). Meanwhile, win the TOP battle by grinding out our first downs with our own running game. I see field position being key in this one, with Akers being called upon for a couple clutch kicks.

Well then it's a good thing we only ever rush 4.
What should we look for in tonight's game? I think the Texans are a pretty similar to us, so it should be good scouting.

It means that he not only releases the ball, but of course he's TOM f**kING BRADY and can feel pressure like no other QB in the NFL.

But here's the 'thing', you send 5 guys and it's obvious, we disguise our blitzes, and I expect a lot of exotic packages being put to the test, Aldon might even be limited for all we know cause they'll double up on the obvious.
Anyone see the Patriots @ Steelers game last year?

They totally flummoxed the Pats in a way I have not seen in a LONG TIME.
I do believe the only way to flumox Brady or bring out the worst in the Patriots is to put up two or three quick scores against that Patriots defense and make the New England offense one dimensional. Brady does his best work when he's got a running game that he can fall back on.

Without it, he's toast.

That would be hilarious!
Brady will struggle just like Rodgers vs the best nickel package in the NFL.

rush 4 + cover 7 = sacks for Aldon
Tried it in Madden, nickel package the whole time, it works!!

what did niners run that 19 step drop pass play again?
damn their linebackers are slow and cant cover! trent dilfer breaking it down. must attack this.
They have trouble with teams that have 4 man pass rush. Aka Giants and 49ers
Hopefully Vernon and Delanie have big days next week attacking their linebackers.

LOL...I feel yah.
Well at the end of the day, we have to be able to score more than the patriots. Hope Kaep and offense can do just that.
