As tough and stout as our defense is, do you guys sense sometimes our players shy away from, or are sort of timid in tackling marshawn lynch?
I remember sharing that feeling during the games, memories are fuzzy but I do remember seeing them get stood up instead of plowing through him.
Did you see Lynch stand up the Skins backers one he got past the LOS? I remember one play he stood-up 3 defense players and ended up with nearly the entire defense on top of him in the pile. This is not something he does only to the Niners backers on occasion, give the guy a head of steam and look out. I'm surprised he can do this coz he seems to be more of a stand-up runner, he takes a crap load of hits.
It would be a hellacious game, but I would rather it be at home with the Hawks. Wilson is nearly impossible to contain, not a good thing, though the Skins were doing a better job of sacking him than the Niners did in Sea. So..it can be done.. Niners need to play faster than they have been playing the last couple games, they looked real tired..This is one team that really needed the bye. I don't think they come out this Saturday full of themselves..Stick had better be rockin...This needs to happen before any of us can consider the scenario the OP has presented.. NINERS!!
