SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS VS. DENVER BRONCOS GAMEDAY THREAD (Preseason Wk 1)

Battles I am looking forward to seeing this game and throughout the pre season:

1. WR's 2-6 (Williams, Jenkins, Patton, Lockette, Collie, Hall, Moore, Jacobs, Hawkins, Osgood) Manningham likely out this preseason

2. FS (Reid vs Dahl vs Spillman vs Robinson Reid is the most likely to win it but I want to see if the other guys are improved or not.)

3.CB's 3-6 (Brown/Rogers 1/2 although Rogers is technically 3 playing the slot. How will Asomugha, Brock, Cox, Cooper and Morris look (possibly Wright as well)

4. #2 and 3 QB (Colt McCoy is likely going to be the #2. #3 between Tolzien and Daniels should be interesting)

And the rest:

OLB (Brooks, Aldon, Parys, Lemonier are locks. Skuta vs Johnson 1 likely makes it. Although Johnson could get it and Skuta could go back to ILB if he struggles at OLB.

ILB (Wilhoite I think is the #3 ILB favorite. Leaves Moody, Stupar, Travis Johnson and possibly Skuta

DL Depth (Tukuafu vs Dobbs vs Okoye vs Jerod Eddie vs Divens vs Purcell, Dial should make the team even if injured. Will Okoye make it based on potential?)

#4 RB (Hampton vs Dixon vs Harper) Dixon has the advantage being a short yardage guy and ST guy. Hampton and Harper could surprise but not sure they make it with our depth and I don't think they will play ST but I could be wrong on that. If they do is it new to them?

Backup FB (Tukuafu vs Dixon) Both should see plenty of reps with Miller likely not playing much as he's cemented himself into one of the best FB's in the league. Hopefully both have improved. Tukuafu showed some promise but often false started and whiffed at times.

I think Dixon is going to do well. He looks like he's in great shape.

All of this, plus I can't wait to see both Ian Williams and Glen Dorsey at NT.
AHHHHH I CANT WAIT

Go, Niners, go!
Colt gonna hit AJ for a 40 yard bomb
I'm only concerned about the bag policy defense
Broncos and their fans are really cool, have a world of respect for them. Hope none of them get hurt and everybody has a good game.

That said, watching our secondary and receivers battle now is going to be something major fun.

God this off season took centuries!

I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

NINERs are back on the field!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It starts tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!

First game of the last season for Candlestick Park. Say what you will about our old stadium but it will always hold a special place for those of us who grew up watching the San Francisco Giants and especially the San Francisco 49ers... Memories will always be there!
