SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS VS GREEN BAY PACKERS GAMEDAY THREAD - PLAYOFFS- 2013 DIVISIONAL ROUND

I'm liking that there's almost zero hype on the 49ers right now, it's like the calm before the storm.

And i get the feeling from the media that they're saying we wont beat the Packers should they come to SF just like they said about the Saints last year. I think we'll come out hitting hard just like in that game and hit their WRs again to mess up Rodgers' timing and force him to make plays with his feet. I just hope we come ready to play!!!!! These guys are already saying of all the NFC playoff teams that the Packers look strongest to make a run. I aint buyin that!!! Their defense hasnt really gotten that much better has it??????

Personally, I don't think our defense is fast. They hit hard, but they're not fast. But the barometer I'm using here is our front-seven trying to keep up with a scrambling Russell Wilson... I don't think any defense is fast enough to really keep pace with him or a healthy RG3. And there's also the read-option to deal with.

The Packers are an easy study- they can't run the ball, their defense is generally terrible, and Rodgers is a great pocket passer with the ability to occasionally scramble. You keep Rodgers from picking you apart and you win. Our defense can contain him if he tries to run.

So first give me the Packers without a doubt. Then give me the Falcons or a banged up RG3 Redskins. I just don't want to see Wilson scrambling away from our big boys like Justin Smith & Ray Mac, who can sack the crap out of Rodgers & Ryan, but will always have a hard time keeping up with the Levi Jeans model.

it really isn't a matter of our defense being fast although we can be. It's just a matter of containing him which we did a poor job of doing. RG3 and Wilson are dangerous because their very quick and agile but I've seen them pressured enough to know that they can be stopped. I think Wilson does a much better job than RG3 at being poised after being pressured so much but it's too bad the guy can't really throw from inside the pocket because he's so darn short.
This BYE week was critical for us when you consider the status of guys such as Justin Smith

It was either PFF or Football Science that rated out linebacker corps as the fastest in the league and our secondary is very fast by comparison with the rest of the league. What you're seeing with Wilson is quickness. He's a little guy who darts around kind of like Fran Tarkenton.
da fuk? our LB's are some of the fastest in the league. And if it weren't raining, Wilson would've been sacked multiple times.

AND THE MOSSTERS OF THE UNIVERSE
We play the Packers...Christian Ponder OUT for today's game per NBC.

we'll get a good look at how the Packers will defend a QB similar to the psychical talent of Colin (Webb is more agile, imo).....heck their offensive approach should look similar to ours. Colin is more accurate and that should be the difference, and with us also having better receivers (and maybe coaching?).

If Rodgers goes off, Vikes are done...but if the Vikings defense plays well again...then the Vikes have a chance still.

Agreed...Vikings will lean heavily on the run game, defense and ST and "manage" the passing game now; ironically, they could look a lot like we did with Alex week 1 where we kept Rodgers on the sideline and Gore, VD and Alex dominated them in Lambeau with the refs aiding them every chance they got.

And now, like you said, if they use Webb more from a Q/Pistol, we'll have a nice blue print for attacking them. Either way, the Packers are going to see a different Niner team...way less effective in the run game, more down field passing and mobility at the QB position, questionable defense (as of late) and poor ST's (as of late minus James).

Could be interesting!

PS: The good thing is that the Vikings OL might be forced to pound the DL good and that could benefit us.
