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

One thing I've noticed, the Houston Texans' D, while very good, is not on the same level as the 49ers D. I say that in the most "non-homer" way I can. Yes, our run D isn't as good as last year, but it's still top10 in that category. However, our pass D is ridiculous. Cully is coming along nice (I'm still laughing at the "experts" calling him a reach in the 3rd round.. more like a steal so far). We're not getting as many turnovers as last year, but even with less turnovers we're allowing about the same amount of points and less yards per game. That's outstanding.

Since Harbaugh took over, only one team has scored more than 30 points on this D, and that was the Saints last year in the playoffs. The Texans' D got punked both by Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady this year. We held the Aaron Rodgers' led offense to a measly 15 points, while the Texans gave up 42 points to the Packers and 42 to the Patroits last week. Also notable about the Texans D is the fact that they gave up 37 to the Jaguars and 31 to the Lions this season. So, in less than one year they have given up 30+ points in four games. The 49ers have given up 30+ points only once in 31 games.

That being said, I feel we can hold the Patriots dynamic office to less than 30. What scares me is that they have a better running game this year as well, which they really haven't had in years past. Our Front 7 will have to ball out like they normally do, and our safeties have to stay home. Brady runs some really good play action fakes. Whitner and Goldson cannot be beat deep, because it's not very often Brady misses his mark.

I feel the Patriots have the advantage in this one, but no way does that mean I don't feel comfortable going into the game. Roman needs to take some shots down the field and more importantly, Kaepernick needs to take those shots and capitilize. We need a Kaep vrs. Bears perfomance to win this game, not a vs. Saints, vs. Rams or vs. Dolphins performance. I believe our ground game can wear the Pats D down.

In the end, as they always say, you win 100% of the time when you score more points than the opposition. Go Niners!

IMO our defense has improved a great deal, we have improved in almost all categories and we have played stronger offensive opponents.

I've got a serious boner for this Sundays game. I'm starting Kaep and Crabtree and sitting Wes Welker. My opponent has Tom Brady. It's primetime, number two seed and division title at risk and I'm not working!

Can't wait

The Pats are playing at home where they very rarely lose, and they are playing their best football right now. The 49ers are nearly a touchdown underdog... Everyone is in awe of the Pats right now....








This is setting up nicely......

I hope you are right, the alternative aka in laying an egg twice on national tv in front of the niner hater collinsworth is something that i do not like to think about

can you imagine how many shots of Alex standing on the sideline they are gonna show.
I for one am glad the Pat's just deboned Houston. Not that I think our guys needed a wake up call to the gravity of the situation. But now to a man they know the level of the task infront of them. There will be no uncertainty that this is the toughest game we have played this year, with another candidate for that honor comming up a week later. If we pull off both, we will have to be considered a favorite to go all the way, we lose both and we will be at best a dark horse.

I think the Patriots are in for a rude awakening!

The Cards beat 'em, the Hawks beat 'em. Is it really necessary to remind ourselves that our gang has a stronger defense AND more dynamic offense then either of those?

Why the panic?
  • Because they whipped the Texans? Let me tell you, the Texans have been skating on thin ice for over a month now and it just broke on them last night. No shock.
  • Cause they managed to win a shootout with the mighty Bills? Oooo.
  • Cause they squeaked out an OT win over the Jets? wow...
  • Cause they beat the Fins by a TD. Now I'm really scared.

We on the other hand have been trying new things, bringing top draft picks up to speed, and preparing for the home stretch.

Final score: Niners 31, Patsies 13

Why the panic?

  • Cause we managed a tie and loss a to the Rams? Oooo.
  • Cause we barely beat a Miami team because of their mistake and meaningless run at the end? wow...
  • Cause Tom Brady and New England are averaging 40.5 points on offense in the last 7 games...You better be scared

Agreed!!!!!

And because they have Wes Welker who if matched up with a certain DB on our team will burn'em like toast!!!

Tom Brady is no slouch he will take advantage of mis-matches baleed dat!!!!

Will I be mad if we don't win....I can honestly say no, cause its Seattle who I want our 9ers to roast!!!!

Every 10-20 minutes, if Kaep struggles - every 5 minuts. If Kaep succeeds - every 5 minutes

I'm so sick of that s**t.

I think Green Bay's offense is better than the Patriots. You will probably see a similar game plan as that, with our nickel defense seeing the most snaps.

NE is first in total yards. Green Bay is seventeenth. New England is averaging 11 and a half ppg more. With all due respect, I think you're wrong.

This times 1 million katrillion. I know a lot of Seahawks fans and I would love nothing more than to hear them shut up. They think they're the greatest thing since the invention of the wheel after slaughtering Arizona 58-0.

Agree with North here...Green Bay is not what it was the last few years. The decimation of their o-line and recievers has really slowed them down. That being said we played them when the whole line up was, bright, shiney and healthy. Not the shell of what they were that has been on the field the last month or so.

And if we do beat New England, I'm gonna be very worried about our 9ers playing Seattle, we've never won 3 in a row this year.
I don't care how they win, i just want them to beat the Patriots! It always feels good to beat a great QB of Brady's stature.
