Which 49er Unit are you Most Concerned about Against GB?

The defense is definitely what we have to be concerned about. If we don't have pressure from the DL and one of the LB's, Rodgers will carve us up. Agaisnt the Vikings, it is obvious that he runs the true WCO as well as Montana ever did. Bill Walsh definitely approves from up above. His swing passes to Cobb, dinks to TE's and YAC to talented receiving corps are devastating. It is like looking at the Niners with Craig, Clark, Rice and Taylor. Pick your poison. The other thing about the Defense that alarms me is Fangio's/Harbuagh's reluctance to rotate the DL to keep them fresh. Walsh was the one who made sure he had a fresh DL in the 4th quarter. Belichik who copies everything Walsh wrote in his book also rotates DL to keep them fresh. To sum it up, the only way the Giants beat the Packers last year in the playoffs and the Pats in the SB was because of their successful pass rush. Absent that, they would have been cannon fodder for Rodgers and Brady.
Special Teams is the only ? I have.....it lost us the NFCC last year.....I hope it doesnt happen again....Defense will contain Aaron Rodgers......Offense is gonna tear it up with the run and play action (not scared of the DB's, or pass rush).....COME ON SPEACIAL TEAMS!!!!!!

Also, in the first game, Cobb's punt return for TD briefly shifted the momentum of the game back to the Packers. We need to clean that up.

u mean the block in the back yeah they cleaned up the replacement refs
I can see our Niners D showing up in this game. I have no doubts they can pressure Rodgers. Our pass coverage is more of a concern for me because their weapons are out in full effect, unlike the first game.

Luckily, their kicker is just as bad as ours. So that's a wash.

I'm real curious to see how GRo and Harbaugh will use our receiving core.

But I guess I'll say my biggest concern is the pass rush because I think that will be the biggest key to this game. It's what stopped Rodgers, Brady and Brees all season. (Well, we saw what happens when our pass rush breaks down with Brady and Rodgers who a lot seem to forget, were still in the game in Week 1)
i cant believe people with our d top 5 (j smith is back) worried about them. do we not have the lowest passing yards per games and either 1 or 2 in points allowed? Our issue is will qb make rookie mistakes. The only downfall our d had was missing smith. He is back a 70% smith is better than rjf. So if colin doesnt make mistakes.... we win! And again if he does i will not blame him. He is a 2nd year qb with half a season under his belt. TIME MANAGEMENT IS KEY WHICH HE HAS BEEN VERY SUSPECT OF! Aldon with the rest, and j smith back will beast. IMHO its all on offensive playcalling and kap playing effecient while franky runs

I would say defense but it has to be special teams. We don't even know who's kicking FG's.
The DL..... Because if they win the game will be an easy W.....
Anytime you go up against an elite QB you worry about the defense.
The Karma Unit. That's the only unit that concerns me. That's the only thing that will stop us from winning the Superbowl.
Ginn can help us out big time with a kickoff return to the house!
D-line closely followed by special teams(kickers and coverage units).

Who is on that unit?

Good point. Haven't heard anything on who won the kicking competition.
I am most concerned about Nelson vs. Rogers.
