Could 49ers defense handle the Broncos??

Brodie and verb, both good points. The one takeaway from Denver game was how hard peyton threw and how little velocity was actually on the ball. I'm not a neurologist, but it looked like that stem cell treatment didn't help his passing velocity. I agree that as season goes on his passes are going to lose more and more of their zip. He's tried so hard...unfortunately, when you get to a physiological point in your life, things slide downhill.

I don't think we'll see any of that from Aaron R. We'll be seeing smoke balls..and pinpoint. I am really excited about our new D backfield and new front 7 rotation guys. It is unfortunate they didn't get to warm up on some one else first, other than AR. Man I hope we beat those guys, cause SEA won't be any easier.

And on O, can't wait to see boldin, patton, vance, Vernon, Baldwin. go to work. If they all have good games, NFL is in for a rough ride against 49ers.


Right, we can beat GB on our offensive side of the ball. And we can keep Rogers to three scores or less if we can get past the improvised offensive line.

We need to be sure tacklers on Rogers though. He scrambles really well. He can make something out of nothing.

Yea 2mrw will definitely be a huge test to see how his years defense stacks up against elite passers, and from the outside looking in, Eric Reid is the weak, I sure hope he's ready!


Reid will be fine. Everyone will realize that when he leads the team in tackles at halftime.

Man if he leads the team in tackles it can also mean a bad thing, either our linebackers are whiffing, or receivers are catching passes vs him. Maybe a 2 INTs tho?! That would blow my mind!
Whitner is the issue..teams gonna do ehat Baltimore did. Spread out the defense and throw to whoever Whitner is covering. Usually in the seams over top of Bowman. Whitner isn't fast enough to get over and break up those plays. I think Reid will be fine but he's gonna blow some coverages at times. Just part of the learning process.
a better question: How many times could peyton take being sacked before his ancient bones shattered to dust?
This is about Denver not GB.

Broncos gave notice yesterday.

Niners can beat them but it will require everyone's A game.

Do not agree. It will require pass rush and a reasonable O.

Sorted.
Our d couldn't even handle the ravens....
I think we match up well with the broncos! Welker is the one slot Carlos Rodgers didn't struggle with last year. Asomungha matches up well with big WRs like Thomas and Brown can handle decker. The TE was good but Willis could stay with him. Plus their Oline and RBs are so bad that we could probably stay in Nickel for most of the game which would nullify their no huddle. Plus, our starers are used to not substituting so they won't have the same competitive advantage that they had against the Ravens. The positive about having a bunch of gym rats on our team is that we are in better shape than most teams on week one because our guys don't use training camp to get in shape and get back their conditioning that they lost in the off season. The negative is that we might peak a little early and not be clicking on all cylinders in January.

All that being said, I think their defense matches up with our offense as well. so it should be a good match up if it ever happens. The good news for us is we won't see them unless it is in NY in februrary which I think our team is build for football in that weather more than theirs is which is ironic because they play in Denver. I would be curious to see how Peytons offense will work in December. It worked well in Indy because at least half of their games were in a dome but we shall see if it will still work in the snow.
I'm not worried about Peyton and all his weapons . Aldon has plenty of his own too.. Lol!
The Ravens sure looked slow kind of what the Steelers looked like last season.
49ers will handle the Broncos. 9ers have better fronts.

That was last year. This year should be different due to depth/rotation. I would feel better about it if we still had Haralson....but we have enough as it is.

I agree with the mod. Not overly impressed with the Denver O. I like Manning, but he wasn't rushed. Broncs did not show a run game There is little speed in the Baltimore defensive backfield, and no Ed Reed.

We need to bring our B+ game for the Broncos. Save the A game for the SeahawksFalcons.
That was a fluke. Baltimore lost its entire defense. They will be lucky go .500
