what 49er fans are saying

I meant ILB.

Ray Lewis can't even talk in complete sentences, and he also said Russell Wilson is the best young QB in the league because he has a great team.

Take what Ray Ray says with a grain of salt.

Wilson is great. Total package, currently I think he is the best. He doesn't have the ceiling IMO others have.

Lewis made those comments about ILB vs MLB when he was playing. He knows a thing or two about both considering he is a HOF LB

It makes sense that the team from San Francisco would be bent over backwards about losing a fashion show.  I'll leave it there.

Heck, I'd say Kap is way more raw than Cam, considering this looks like it will be Kap's first full season as a starter. This game is shaping up to be a good one. I do think we have the advantage since we are playing at home even though our fans need to be told when and when not to make noise...

We do have a way better run blocking O-line than the Vikings and Shehawks though. So yall may have to sacrifice someone in the box.

I am, however, afraid that the Niners will start out pass happy this game. We tend to do that at home when Colin doesn't have to deal with crowd noise...It has proven to be a dangerous recipe, as our offensive success starts with, and goes through Frankie Jesus aka Frank Gore.

I do concede The 49ers have a good o-line. Possibly the best we faced all year but our rotation is very formidable too. We'll likely sacrifice Mikell since he's your typical 'in-the-box' safety, and drop Kuechly, Davis, Mitchell and Blackburn. That, of course, depends on whether or not Lester starts at SS (doubt it).

Homefield advantage is definitely a strength here. It's not Seattle, but Candlestick Park is intimidating too.

Like Cam, Kaep needs to get into a rhythm. So the run game is crucial. We're not a pass first offense like The Saints. Cam could evolve into that guy in the future but he needs weapons and protection. Since both our offense need the run, I foresee a struggle.

Oh, and I think Kaep and Cam are very similar passers.  Sometimes they are going to miss.  Both are great because of their legs as much as their arms.  Kaep may have better top end speed, where Cam is a lot stronger and maybe a little bit more shifty than Kaep.

 

Their games remind me a lot of each other

Read through every post. These people are annoyingly dumb as rocks.

 

The most irritating posts are those that say we are trying to imitate their "run and stop the run" style of play.

 

Do they not realize that we have been that mold since coming into the league in 1995? Do they not realize that we are the only team to have ever put two backs over 1,100 yards in the same season? Do they not remember how many times we've been at the top of the league for both rush offense and defense?

 

They act like Harbaugh invented this style of play and anyone else who does it is copying them... What a bunch of tools and fools.

 

Here's a fun little fact: Ron Rivera has been coaching the stingiest defenses since 1997, FIVE years before Jim Harbaugh even coached for the first time as a QUARTERBACKS coach.

 

He didn't start coaching anything else in the NFL until 3 seasons ago. So stop with this "everyone who pounds the ground & stops the run is copying Harbaugh", because that logic is legitimately retarded.

Kaep reminds me more of RGIII out of all the young QBs. Less fragile.

Outside of Luck, none of the talked about young kids have been asked to make as many consistent tough throws as a passer.

Cam is easily the best runner of all of them

With all of that said, unfortunately Mr Harbaugh isn't as mentally handicapped as the Niners fans.

 

I see us losing this one, especially since we are away and they're fresh off of their bye. But I also think the Niners are gonna make a run at playing in the Super Bowl again despite Kaep being a terribly overrated QB. Just goes to show how much coaching and unity matter in the NFL.

We have a lot of backs to try on them. So hopefully one if not all get nice breaks.

 

All of our backs are going to be pounding all day to wear them out, then when they are out of breath, Cam to Ginn (who knows their defense), or Olsen or Smith. 

 

Our D has been great against the run, but I think they will have a test with Gore. 

 

I can't wait for this game. It feels like the biggest game since the playoffs in 08. I hope the team feels the same way.

The key on defense will be to shut down Vernon Davis like we did Tony G in the 2nd half of the Atlanta game.

We gotta shut down Gore too.

 

The key to our success lately has been us controlling the game. We need to win the time of possession again to keep our defense fresh and able to get Gore and Kaep off the field.

A lot of our fans that keep saying Kaep is overrated, I think some of us think he is overrated in the same way that a lot of our opponents think Cam is overrated.  Like Cam, sometimes he can run a little hot and cold passing the ball.  But when you add in the dimension of his running and scrambling he is a very, very good QB.

 

Don't sleep on Kaep.  You want him to beat you from the pocket, but you still have to get pressure and get him uncomfortable or else he will eat you up.  I think we may see a variety of blitzes on Sunday up the middle, with DEs trying to keep outside contain, with the backside being manned up.

 

They create a lot of problems defensively, but so do we.  And we have the type of defense to give them problems.
