SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS VS NEW ORLEANS SAINTS GAMEDAY THREAD (WEEK 11)

Originally posted by Canadian9erfan:
Last year we went into the Superdome with Kaep and won. That being said, the Saints were a different team without S. Peyton as coach, and opponents had yet to figure out Kaep yet. We also had Crabtree and VD healthy.

This year the saints are almost unbeatable just like the Seahwawks are at home. Brees doesnt turn the ball over at home, and you can pencil them in for 28pts minimum. So it will be up to our offense to control the clock and punch in TDs and not settle for FGs. How we will do that without Vernon (possibly)?? i am actually not sure. Not too confident in this game. i still feel we win 10 games and make playoffs but this game wont be easy.

The only saving grace is that the 49ers have done better against teams that pass more and power run less, that's the Saints. I still think there is no way we win this game given how the team is playing on offense. The panic won't set in this year until we get plastered again by the Seahawks.

This is critical game, the Saints had 40 first downs against the Cowboys. Yes I know it's the Cowboys. The Saints shadowed Dez Bryant with 2 defenders the entire game. The Niners should be able to run but they have to generate more than 11 completions if they are going to win. I think the team will have a little more bounce on the artificial surface and a win will put us all in a good space.

You do realize that DAL had Hatcher and Lee out vs NO. Plus they already had lost Ratliff. Dallas has a porous d line. Much different story with us
we can win this game for sure...am i confident? no but it can be done if our offense steps the f**k up
I feel like as long as T.O is not an honorary captain.......we will win!

I hope we start doing better too but at the same time we can't blame it all on receivers. We were still winning games when we had Ginn and Swain in our starting lineup a couple years ago.

CK has been absolutely terrible in his off games. And aside from maybe one game, hasn't really been "lights out" in any others. Additionally, we are not utilizing our talent properly. McDonald should be used on TE screens -- he can bowl over people in the open field. Manningham is quick and should be great on WR screens as well as clear-out routes (have Baldwin & Boldin go deep to clear out the underneath and then drop it to Mario for a big gain).

Hunter and James are barely used in the passing game whatsoever. We HAVE players we can to at least ATTEMPT to see if we can get something going, but we haven't tried anything like that.

RUN THE BALL.

Kaep
Gore
Hunter
James

Bring it every possible way we can and pound them into submission. Keep that offense off of the field and wear down that pretender of a defense. I do not care what they are ranked on defense, they are no Carolina/Seattle, we CAN pound it on them.

Agreed. We can't count on the passing game at all. Their only option to keep up with Brees is to keep him off the field. If the 49ers allow the Saints to get more than 28 points its game over. This is tough game for the 49ers no matter how you slice it and I have no faith in them offensively. They didn't just lose to every contender on the schedule. They got completely embarrassed by ALL of them. This has been a disturbing trend ever since Harbaugh got here. The recipe to beat this team has not changed and the coaching staff has done NOTHING to change it.
Trade Brees for CK... straight up!

If Saints were smart, they'd play 8-9 men in the box to stop the run until CK proves he can beat them with his arm like in Week 1. Ugh, I hope they're not that smart.
Go get Ed Reed

Or do one better and copy what the Panthers did by loading 8 in the box, coax Kap to audible into a pass, then drop back in coverage as the play clock winds to zero when we snap. This is a serious problem that's been discussed a lot here. By wasting so much time getting the ball snapped, we effectively run out of time to read the defense and by running the play clock down to zero, the defensive line/blitzers know exactly when to let loose. Hopefully we make some fundamental changes in our offensive game play because we won't have any timeouts left for game management decisions this week when/if the crowd gets wild in NOLA.

Hopefully this has more to do with depth in Celek versus losing VD for a bit (sorry if this was already posted).

I would love to see the game plan with Vernon out(I can only wish this won't be the case), conventional thinking would say "run it until they prove they can stop it, then run some more".

Roman's logic is "Run it until they prove they can't stop it, then abandon the run completely".
KW is getting released.
This is long over due.
