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

I don't get some of you guys.....

Kyle Williams screwed up our chances of "WINNING" a super bowl.....like it was guaranteed we'd beat the Patriots in that game.

Now the sky is falling and we have no shot.

Granted these Pats are better than last year's team, but I wager our 49ers are better too -- our defense is playing better and doesn't appear to be as lights out because of lack of turnovers. We lived and died off the TO last year. Maybe we'll get some TOs when it really counts.

Our offense is better....Smithsonian or Kaepernickus.

I like our chances, and appreciate that this game is in NE instead of SF. Last year, we barely got battle tested prior to playoffs like the way we have this year.
Are we guaranteed a playoff spot by winning this game?

This is my Superbowl picks for this season with Niners winning. Go Niners!!!!!! Smith needs to go ahead and get the sack record in this game.

Jesus Christ, Donte Stallworth. The guy was out of the league and now we need a safety over the top. The Tom Brady effect.

We definitely don't need a safety over the top for Stallworth lol. We just need to play good, sound, fundamental football.
Everyone needs to relax. The Patriots just beat a Texans team that has looked very average against mediocre competition. The Texans just squeaked by the Lions, Jags, and Jets this year.

Yes the Pats looked very good last night, and Brady looked as great as ever, but the Texans have been exposed on Pass D lately. Go watch what Henne did to them. This isn't something that came as a shock to me. As far as the Pats D, finesse OL have trouble with Wilfork. He was a monster in this game.

The Pats have benefited from a very generous schedule. Take a look at who've they beat thus far. I see two good teams, Texans and Broncos. Other than that nothing really impresses me. The teams they have struggled with have a very sound defensive scheme and don't let up the big play. We need pressure up the middle and to force Brady out of the pocket. If we can do that, we have a great shot at beating them.

Yup. I'd like to see A Gap blitzes, T-E stunts looping Aldon through the middle, or just having Aldon or Brooks occasionally line up at T. I'd hate to be the guard responsible for shifting between Cowboy and Aldon on successive plays.

You bring up good points, but I still see this as 50/50 chances to win, Pats offense vs. Niners defense is the key match up. Kaep hasn't thrown a TD last couple of games, but he will be a problem for them when he takes off running for a first down or even a TD. I expect a lot of Gore up the middle and LMJ sweeps. PA passes to the middle/deep part of the field will back off the safeties and open up running lanes. I believe we have the best front 7 in the NFL on D, but as a change of pace, wouldn't be surprised if they played a lot of Nickel rush 4 drop 7 back to watch for screens and pressure Brady without much blitzing. Should be a good game, much closer and more competitive than last night's game.

The Niners are likely to try to grind it out and control the ball. CK's arm and legs will be reserved for long third downs, the real reason he is in there, the Super-Alex.

Anyone watching the game against the Texans would agree that holding onto the ball might seem like a good idea. NE looked just great.

This...before you all panic, realize that Houston handed them 21 before the end of the first quarter. I might be a little overly optimistic hear, but I have my doubts we turn it over 3 times in the first quarter.

no but we will probably have six penalties in the first quarter cuz that is what we do. any drive extending penalties by our alleged elite defense is just like a turnover cuz brady will make us pay for it.

that is nice but he will either lead with his head or rip his helmet off, thus a penalty, thus an extra chance for brady, thus a touchdown for the pats, thus this game can and probably will get out of hand early
I don't understand why some are so confident about this game. Houston may not be as good as their record but they are still a good team and they just got toasted and roasted. Our biggest weakness on D is covering TEs and that is New England's biggest strength. Their offense is peaking and ours is trending down. Bill is going to confuse the sh@t out of Kaep with his defense so our only hope is for Gore to have a monster night. I'm not counting this game as an automatic loss but if the offense struggles like they have the last few weeks then the Niners will also be roasted and toasted in prime time.
