Getting Defensive - 49ers Edition

78 posts in this topic

 

The 49ers passing game is currently ranked dead last in the league. 49ers fans will point to injuries in their 2nd and 3rd receiving options, but that is a poor excuse. The 49ers still have Anquan Boldin and Vernon Davis, two formidable receiving threats. Those two by themselves should be able to provide a better ranking than last in the league given an adequate quarterback. WR Mario Manningham returns to practice this week for the 49ers but is unlikely to be activated in time for Sunday's game.

 

 

 

It's a combination of having major injuries at the WR position and not having to pass because we've been up so early on teams.

The Seahawks are the best team we have played, and we should've won that game.

The Seahawks and niners are both EXTREMELY overrated, but the Seahawks are the better team.

The niners better pray we fumble on the goal line like we did vs Seattle because we are about to come in there and upper cut them in the fuggin mouth.

It's a combination of your QB being an overrated punk, and you reaching for excuses.

If Kap was any good, he would make your receivers look better.

You can tell the 49ers and their fans feel like they got this game in the bag already... they're saying all the right things but you can tell and I love it. 

 

They're in for a nasty surprise.

Bingo.

 

Colin has better options now than Cam had his first two record breaking passing seasons.

Agreed, its always tougher for a QB when you don't HAVE to blitz. That leaves 7 in coverage and that is something I believe kaep may struggle with. Only rushing 4 also allows you to have a spy (like you said) without forfeiting much (if any) in coverage. And yes, a major key is fresh lineman......and no fua.

I have a feeling we will see a lot of the defensive ends also dropping off into zones. The thing is, we have got to stop the run so we don't fall into the lull of bringing 8 in the back. As soon as we do that the option opens up as well as the stretch runs to the right side.

Ah yes, the rock solid "we're only last because we don't have to be better" arguement....

Can you imagine the headlines if Cam was throwing for the least amount of yards in the league? The national media would be piling on and kicking him in the ribs.

You guys have Boldin and Vernon Davis (both pro-bowl level receiving targets). No excuses.
