1 huge positive for our defense: There is not much of an outside threat on the outside who will command double coverage. Most of our coverage will have to focus on their passing game inside from Welker and Hernandez, which bodes well because we have the best 'middle field coverage' players in the NFL. (Goldson, Willis, Bowman) So with that, we can hopefully stay true with our dline and not underestimate their running game. It will be Willis' and Bowman's most busiest week, but if they get good film study. And can get good presnap recognition, it will be their most PRODUCTIVE week too.

Big question I have though: How will we fare in the cold cold weather? We do not have much experience in these types of games. It does kind of worry me because it is a huge factor.

I think the big key is getting the running game going again. But with the playcalling since Kaep started, they've been looking for the pass more it seems. We need to keep the Patriots offense off the field and rest for our D. The more our defense stays on the field, the less they become effective. The last thing you want is the Patriots to control TOP. They are going to move the ball, but can we limit their TD's? If the defense can limit their TD's and the offense controls TOP, we win this game.

I'm not so sure they will be able to sustain their own drives. Their goto guy was Edelman and Gronk. We can double welker and should be fine. Hernandez is not creating mismatches and Woodshed is nonfactor. We need two guys blowing off the line to get to Brady and to contain their underrated running backs. They will they to run to keep our O off the field. I'm worried about the cold too.
Hopefully the Pats beat the snot out of the Texans tonight so they'll be on a big emotional high and and not feel the desperation of potentially losing 2 in a row at home. I love the way we play as underdogs

PS - if Sam Bradford to Danny Amendola was any indicator, I'm not excited about seeing what Tom Brady and Wes Welker can do
Run ......run....then run some moree...keep brady on the side lines then play d like we know how...we got this..we may even need to activate jacobs 4 his game...I know the drama going on right now but we could sure use him to soften up their d~line..imo

One other concern is Pats use screens. Especially on third down.
We're about to get stomped out by the Pats.... Offense needs to either become great over the next week or we get destroyed by Brady.

Alexanderp?
Win the turnover battle (+2)

Dominate the time of possesion.... not just win it but dominate it, keep Brady off the field. Would love to have 35+ minutes of TOS.
Kaepernick better light it up, b/c he has been dead average the last 2 weeks

Right. And our discipline needs to come from our outside backers because their keying on getting to the ilbs. We have to see the screens coming right away and get to Brady early in the game to rattle him. And then pull back later when they try those screens to slow us down.
We clearly have trouble with smurf recievers so I do fear Welker and what he could do, but I also really like how our team seems to really get up for the big games ( giants game excluded), and are clearly not all that affected by traveling east. I think we win this in a close one one if Aldon is able to get Brady dirty early and often and somebody finds a way to bang up Welker comming off the line. They have a very average D, average run game, and Hernandez hasnt been 100% all year, plus no Gronk. This game is all about making no mistakes, and getting Brady uncomfortable. 28-24 Niners. Also for the people worried about the cold, Not sure what next week will bring, but its actually been pretty mild here in the north east for the last two weeks or so.
Is the Gronk still out?

I believe that has to do with play calling in all honesty

And lack of vertical recievers.
Our boys are going to come to play against the Patriots. You all can say what you want, but I can sense that Colin is starting to get it. It may not be showing up on the stat sheet, but this guy is only going to get better. Just watch. It amazes me how little faith a lot of you have in our team. We are an elite team and can beat anyone in the league. None of you know how this game is going to go. Just root for our boys and watch them go out there and ball. As a collective unit, we are far better then the Patriots. Go Niners!!!
