Why our run D will win or lose this game

Brandon Weeden....yeah, even Weeden grades out by PFF better than Kapernick this year (and that is overall grade and Kapernick has rushing to bring up his grades and it is still in the gutter). Kapernick of course has his moments but talk about being overrated thanks to your team around you. A little surprised the media chooses to look at the glass half full always with this kid.

I mean, you don't ever hear the media talk of a 2nd year slump (they have always lumped him in with the rookies).....his play has been significantly down after teams have a full season now in the books.

Didnt know that on his PFFF stuff... but he has looked very good at times and has typically avoided costly mistakes that lose his team the game at least the last 4 or 5 weeks, similar to Cam.

 

I think both guys are explosive and talented and I don't think looking at Kap's stats reflects his ability.

49ers can say what they want about choosing to run.....and that lowering passing stats but PFF simply looks at how good you are when you do it. Kapernick has been bad. National media would want Newton benched out of fear he could derail the teams chances. The media is comical.

If they were losing the media would be on him.

Sigh....I am nervous about this game, gotta stop the run at all cost. Media hype and all. Stop Gore, and our chances of winning are so much more. (Hey that rhymed).

Downplay the 49ers Run Game if you want to, We'd like it even more if you do :D

Might want to read again....I wasn't downplaying it. I was pointing out Kapernick's play has been poor.

So as the point of the thread was....if we can stop the run and make you pass.....our odds of winning are pretty dang good IF we can do that. Hence why our run D would win or lose the game.

I don't think there is any doubt as to the strategy we take.  49ers running game is better than the passing game.  Shut down the run, and force Kaep to pass. Same thing we did to Seattle.  I HIGHLY doubt that Kaep can make the same insane plays that Wilson was able to, though [granted, that one throwaway luckily found a Seattle receiver].

 

If we do that and Cam can handle those intermediate throws while avoiding the pass rush and also dropping one or two deep, we win the game.  I still think it will be close.
