SF 49ERS vs Vikings Pregame Thread - 2021 Week 12

My understanding is they are 0-4 in Super Bowls and that was way more than several years ago my bro lol

I'm so old
If the 49ers allow 341 yards passing next week they're in big trouble. I agree they have to play keep away like they have done the last 2 weeks. I don't know if they can do that against the Vikings. Jimmy will probably need to throw more than 10 yards in this game.
Offense is going to put up pts, Vikings are definitely going to get theirs.

Not if Bosa, Key, Warner, Armstead, Ebukam, Ward, Mosely and Hufanga have a say.

They have some talent but this is also the team that put up 7 points at home vs Cleveland.
I never saw in Cuzins what kyle did in wanting to bring him here. He was just nothing special, but kyle really liked him. If BB hadn't dropped Jimmy.in our proverbial laps, kyle was going to get Couzins the next yr.

fast forward to now and i have to tip the hat to cuzins, as he has played some big time football, esp last week against GB/ARodgers. Terrific performance and now will have to admit, Cuzins is a good QB. This will not be an easy game and Vikes are a team we really need to put away…as in out of their misery. But that GB game was a wake up call. Vikes are tough, always have the tough DL, now a good OL, and Thiel as a standout star.

I hope same game plan going in, running the ball, but this will be as hard a team to beat as any we play this yr. Knowing now that Deebo can be Elijah, is sure a comforting thot. It will be nice to get Deebo back as a WR, but if Elijah can't go, then Deebo again. Against a really good team, Wilson is fine but he isn't in the Elijah/Deebo class, and sermon…well, we may have to wait a yr to see what he has. At Ohio St, he started off poorly but got going and ended up a really good RB. Hopefully same thing happens here. His start is sure low key, so hopefully he goes up from here.

Who's Cuzins? lol

I don't like Cousins face. He's listed at 6-3 205 but looks like he's 180 soaking wet. I don't think he's ever missed a game due to injury. Impressive.

lol I've told pasodoc a number of times that 'thot' means something very different nowadays, and he still continues to use it.

Jimmy's stats against the Vikings in his 2 career outings against them:

11/19 57.9% CMP 131 Yards 1 TD 1 Int 74.7 QBR 6.89 YPA

15/33 45.4% CMP 261 Yards 1 TD 3 Int 45.1 QBR 7.91 YPA

Not great, let's hope the run game and defense shows up like it did in 2019.

Sorry guys, just a decades old habit, and hard to break. Besides I have a few more miles on my tires than most and am immune to keeping up with hip-hop/ gangsta / rumble down gang-slang. I tried to change but it just doesn't take. I own it…my apologies.
I'll just throw out the largely overlooked take here:

The home team in this series has won games going back quite a long time. We haven't won in Minnesota since 1992, and the 49ers have beaten the Vikings going back to at 2015 at home (that hilarious season opener).

I'm hoping we can finally go to Minnesota next time and win, but for now we won't have to. Seeing the importance of this game and the renewed fight of the team, I believe Levi's will play a role in us getting the 6th win of the season.

All good, paso. It's always a chuckle when I read your posts and I put the modern day definition of the word in place of the way you intended to use it.

It would be great to have Greenlaw back, too, to fortify even more the middle in pairing with Warner (especially when dealing w/ the Vikes' D. Cook, tackling their playmakers in space, etc.).
Niners win this one and they are back for REAL!
