Why, is he lip-syncing the Anthem? I thought they got a real singer this time.
Well, one thing in Peytons’ favor, the weather took a turn for the better the past few days.
We managed to push the mercury into the 40s today.
Far cry from what has been the average here over the past 2 weeks.
After dealing with single digits in the overnight hours, it’s looking like low to mid 30s for the game.
Downright balmy for this area during early February in the Winter.
Well, that and all the weapons he has and being the best QB in the league and an on-field OC calling the plays.
Just better for him in terms of him having the ability to pass.
The Meadowlands is a wind machine as well. Always swirling, always something to compensate for. Especially Kickers.
Peyton is a surgeon, I just couldn’t imagine him having the same sort of expectations if the weather weren’t favorable.
He’s getting some help from Mother Nature in this one.
It’s actually going to push 50 degrees during the day here later.
Denver is probably colder.
It’s now about the precipitation factor during the game.
Rain beats snow I’d say.
Quite the change of events, weather-wise.
If I had my druthers the Denver Mannings would make the ‘Hawks look ridiculous and Sherman would get beat for some big plays. More likely it will be a dogfight and injuries to key players might be the difference maker. Hope for at least a sixty minute game and no big bad calls.
I’d second that NoFear49er.
Welker remains the ‘Anti-Sherman’ for me.
Quick hitters inside of 10 yards, move the sticks and wear down the Seattle D.
I still feel our LBs are superior to theirs.
Freeze them with play action, Welker all night.
This should be interesting to say the least. Peyton can pretty much nullify a pass rush by using his quick passing game to gain favorable the down and distances. You just have to wonder how quickly their WRs can consistently get open.
Their deal will be how well can Knowshown Moreno and M Ball can go. If Denver can stop Lynch, then it definitely swings in Peyton’s favor. I really thought Seattle would win this going away, but now, I’m starting to think Denver just might win this. This ain’t in Seattle so that takes a big part of their success out of the equation.
Weather for tonight shouldn’t be a detriment Chuck.
What would be nice is, to have Peyton grab the early advantage, negate Lynch somewhat, force Wilson to play catch up.
Denver is probably most vulnerable in the Secondary however.
I just don’t want to hear Seattle thumping their collective chests in victory.
Either way, we could use the WR options Peyton has at his disposal.
Should be a good opportunity to see how Peyton attacks the Legion of Goons.
Let’s hope Kaep and Roman are taking notes tonight.
Bingo to that. Quicking up the playcalling and passs plays would be a welcome sight.
Funny thing to hear is Wilson being whispered lately as a game manager. He certainly isn’t lighting it up as he was. But he’s had injuries in the WR spot as well. Them getting Harvin back will be huge if he can stay on the field.
Pussy Harvin is a concern vs the Denver Secondary Chuck.
Short of him being inexperienced in terms of playing time, the dude still has wheels.
He’s still a threat in the Return game as well.
One favor he is providing, he carries a huge Cap number.
He and Rice are Cap Busters.
In our case, we can jettison Carlos-type money and not be bitten in the backside.
That’s one thing Marathe and Baalke have done an excellent job with.
This is one major area where Jerruh remains clueless.
He constantly has to rob Peter to Pay Romo.
For what exactly, I haven’t a clue.
NJ49er, do you mean our inside MLBs or OLB pass rushers better than their DEs?
Our ILB duo NoFear49er.
In terms of the quick hitters inside, I think Bowman and Willis do an excellent job of maintaining spacing and wrapping up.
No doubt, NJ49er. Their linebackers are their weakness and we probably have the best two guys in the league, in the 34 scheme anyway.
Denver loves the Pick Plays.
I’d be willing to guess that Peyton tests them with Welker.
He did take out the Pats best corner on what was laughingly called a pick play. I’m sure they’ll go back to that even if disguised a bit better.
That particular play is basically a running play I think.
Once the WR touches the ball, Welker became a downfield blocker.
Billy didn’t like it of course but, it’s actually a pretty clever wrinkle.
For me, I’d like to see Kaep develop that sort of touch and timing for our Offense.
Extremely hard play to defend, when it’s done with that sort of timing.
Very true. CB is expecting to cover not get plowed. I thought the timing of the pass was very good but Welker squared up on Talib too soon to suit me.
It was close, no doubt.
It will have the Seattle DBs thinking about it for sure.
Those Combo-Routes are always bang-bang plays.
Either you switch or, you hesitate enough to lose a step.
Welker could easily turn that up field too.
Peyton should give them plenty of headaches in that regard.
And, you know they’ll never admit to Pick Plays, it’s a Rub Route 😀
Yeah, that’s a big part of their game. Pats, too, for that matter. I’d hate to see Sherman victimized. Best corner in the game? Ima shut his mouth real quick. LOL
Hey, NJ49er, Jones was at least a smart enough GM to take Charles Haley off our hands and win a few Super Bowls with him.
Trouble was it made him think he was the guy making all those wins possible. And his head never un-exploded.
Hard to ignore a good pass rusher like Haley NoFear49er.
Had it not been for Plan B, perhaps Haley wouldn’t have flipped out over the loss of Lott?
Be nice if Aldon could provide similar production on the field going forward.
Without all the unnecassary drama that Haley inflicted.
Didn’t Deion go with him? I remember thinking that was going to sting to lose both those guys.
I was reading that Kaep will have QPat join him in Miami for off season workouts.
Don’t forget the Puppy Bowl. Some of you guys probably need a dog so check out the local shelters.
The 49ers should try to trade for Kirk Cousins. I bet Snyder hates the way Shanahan underminded RGIII with Cousins at the end of the year. Bet Snyder would love to see Cousins on another team. Cousins is better than Colt, for sure.
Not your worst idea, Spitty. We certainly have draft picks to throw at Washington. Something they desperately need.
New thread is up.
