This game? Funny, I don’t really have a sense of how this one goes. Vegas has us at 5.5, which is a tick over the 3 points you get for home field. My son things we take them, as do you guys, but I think this one is gonna be a struggle. Everyone keeps saying we haven’t played anyone, but aren’t the Rams someone? Sure, they are on;y 4-3 but they were the NFC Champs last year. But does that make us contenders?
I really don’t know. The defense is for real. That much is obvious. We get constant pressure, and we get turnovers. Even with a backup corner. It’s the offense that I really want to see break out. Jimmy G has been good for stretches, but he still makes ill-advised throws. He reads defenses until he doesn’t. Yeah, we are on a patchwork line ourselves, and that is what worries me about Sunday’s game.
Carolina has 2 solid DEs that have 11 sacks between them. I suspect we run a lot tomorrow as their run D is suspect. What I’d like to see is delayed draws and misdirection. Let these guys overpursue and take advantage of their aggressiveness.
Shooting in the dark, I’ll say 30-27 Niners.
