The good news for the 49rs is we are getting some offensive talent back. George Kittle, Deebo Samuel, and jet McKinnon are back, and Brandon Aiyuk is coming off a great game last week, so our offense looks to be ready to roll with Nick Mullens getting the start this week over still-hirt Jimmy G. Defensively we are still hurting with Sherm, ‘Spoon, Moseley, Ford, Greenlaw, Bosa, and Thomas all out, and K’Won Williams questionable with a bad hammy.
Still and all, we are going against Carson Wentz. He is putting together a flat awful season so far with 3 TDs against 3 picks, 59% completion percentage, and a paltry 5.6 yards per attempt. All these are last or 31st in the league. They are nearly as banged up as we are, as DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery, Avonte Maddox, and Trevor Williams are all out, so their deep threats aren’t. And they just put their left tackle Jason Peters on the IR with a toe injury.
The Eagles are of course the 3rd winless team we are facing in this early piece of the season, and we really need to get these wins while we can as we healthy up, but as it is, the Eagles have lost to the 1-2 No-Skins, got trounced by the 2-1 Rams, and played the hapless Cincinnati Bengals in an early Stupor Bowl beauty with the perfect outcome, a 23-23 tie.
As usual, pressure Wentz and he flails. He took an astounding 8 sacks, 2 picks, and 2 fumbles against the No-Skins, 2 picks against the Rams, and took 3 more sacks, 2 more picks, and 1 more fumble against the Bengals. So all we have to do is get pressure. Kerry Hyder Jr. has proven to be a very solid acquisition as he has made a ton of plays in the pass rush rotation. He has 2 sacks, 6 pressures, 7 solo, and 14 assisted tackles.
Since I’m dogging Wentz so much, he’ll prolly rush for 80 yards, and it turns into a dog fight. Seriously though, I think this one will be fairly easy as games go as we outscore them by a lot.
