Anyone else feel the same way? I think we match up much better against the Pats than San Fran.

We're at home, they have a worse offensive line, a worse defense, a better QB but largely incapable wideouts, a slightly better running game if you factor in all the backs, but we're better against the run regardless.

I honestly thought that the Niners had a better chance at winning that last game than we did, but I seriously think we have a much higher chance against the Pats than they have against us.

This isn't thread worthy really, but I just wanted to exude my confidence onto the rest of my less-confident counterparts.

Keep Pounding, nation!! Let's lock in that W!!

I'm way less confident in this game.  The reason the Panthers were able to beat the 49ers (besides luck - those fumbles could have gone either way) was because Kaepernick is just straight up not a very good QB.  The many articles published after the game showed he's a one-read QB.  When you take that read away, he either has to scramble or take the sack and that's exactly what happened.  Tom Brady is a HOF QB.  He will not be surprised by anything the Panthers are doing and if something isn't working, he's smart enough to change to something that works.  He'll be able to put up points, regardless of how good the Panthers D has been playing, so the pressure will be on Cam and the offense to score enough to stay ahead of Brady.  If they can get ahead early and run the ball, I could see a win.  If they fall behind early, it could get ugly.  This is a tough game.

I felt worse about this game than the SF game.

 

Brady has the ability to exploit our secondary.  The SF offense was run oriented and that played to our strength.  The Pats offense is much better than the Niners offense.

 

Now that being said, I believe we can run and score on the Pats. 

 

Getting in a shootout with Brady worries me.

If we can run the ball like we did against the Viks and keep Brady off the field I like our chances...

 

Problems will come if we can't sustain drives.

New England's offense is not the scoring machine that it once was.  Outside the Steelers game (and the Steelers are GOD AWFUL on defense), the NE offense has been very middle of the road.

 

They are only avg'ing 2 pts per game more than ours.

 

Pressure Brady and run the ball....and we will win.

Brady is infinitely better than Kap, thus I believe NE poses the tougher challenge.

If qb play is the deciding factor, then yes they have an advantage, but Brady doesn't have the weapons he used to. Our line is getting to the quarterback, and very few, if any, of the sacks are coverage sack. NE doesn't far well against the run. If we get Stewart and Tolbert going early, their defense will get tired and Williams will gash them later. A turnover or two won't be the end of the world as long as special teams and defense steps up. If the offense plays mistake free, we hit Brady early and often, and special teams plays like they have most of the season, we should win.

i think the 49ers defense scared me more then what Tom Brady will do.

 

Or maybe it's pretty even....so i feel about the same.

Yeah, I don't feel good about this match up. They've got weapons on offense and Brady is still a good QB. On paper, we should be able to thrash New England's D, especially since Mayo and Wilfork are on IR and Talib is wounded but paper isn't trustworthy. Either way, they're gonna stack the box. Dink-and-Dunk time.

Mitchell, Lester, Mikell, Florence, White and Munnerlyn are gonna have to play out of their minds again cuz I sense Brady and company will negate our pass rush. Kuechly and Davis can only do some much in coverage. So our secondary is gonna have to step up.

It is not their offensive weapons that scare me (they are mediocre)....nor even Brady's execution (he is playing just OK this seasoN) that scares me.....it is Belichik having 2 weeks to put in a scheme to counter our pass rush.  I still think we can get some pressure on Brady, but I do not expect to see a beat down like we gave Kaep.

 

I hate the guy...but he has a knack for coming up with something that works.

 

We must play disciplined defense....watch out for the screens and TE....and pound the rock on offense.  If we do these things (and I think we will) I believe we will win.
