I thought 8 games was reasonable, 9 was a bit of a surprise.  Anything sucks for the team, but maybe we end up getting more out of Aldon in the long run because of this.

Honestly I don't know how you teach a kid when the NFL positive re-enforcement system fails ... I think you have to try negative re-enforcement.

What I guess that does prove is that even Cossell gets it wrong sometimes, since if he is the one who said that nonsense then he obviously missed the mark on that analysis  .

I am not worried at all right now. The players in during the preseason have been about the same as a poor expansion roster.A few starters with mostly inexperience players filling out the O and D.
Hardly any of the vet starters have played much and when they have played they are not usually playing with the starting units they will be with intact. And of course they are not rea

I’m normally an optimist but this year I just have a nagging feeling we’re all in for a letdown. Here are the seven main reasons for my pessimism:

1. Competition in NFC West
It just seems to get harder and harder to win this division. The Cards offense was on fire in the first pre-season game and their defense was already very good. The Rams are young but very talented, Bradford is back and they always play the niners hard. Seattle has not gotten worse.
2. Injuries

The quarterbacks are a long way away from capable insurance to Kaepernick. Johnson is probably the best option, and that is not saying much at all. Big questions on the defensive line given none of the starters were on the field. Even when they return it will be hard to find a solution at NT... though both Carradine and Dial had their moments. The team has no answer to a mobile quarterback either. On offense, there is not much behind Hyde. Ellington did look good relative to the scabs he was playing against. Not much faith in overall protection packages as the game wore on.

Very susceptible to the screen, and no answer for a quarterback that can move the pocket. The team also has a huge hole at nose tackle. On the other hand, pressure was successful, Dial forced a fumble and Ward blew the run game up in the backfield. Vance McDonald held onto the one and only pass that Kaepernick threw, Hyde looks solid, and Hampton was given a great opportunity on 3rd and 1 that he could not convert. 10 minutes to go in the half.

The 49ers trade for Stevie Johnson is a very significant move for the club.  The trade, for the dynamic WR gives up a 2015 4th pick conditional performance could make it a 3rd round pick.  From a talent perspective, this is a big time robbery.  There is a question mark on Johnson's character, and injury history though.  The Bay Area native has been fighting lingering injuries to his groin and back.

When it comes to talent, Johnson is loaded.  He also has taken Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman to task - as can be seen here.  His ability to b...

1) The #49ers  have made a concerted effort over the past few years to add former high draft picks who have underperformed since their rookie season.  In this way, they can extend that year's draft to pick up more first round picks for a much lesser price (by trade this sometimes accounts to a 6th  or 7th rounder, and in some cases the players are free agents).  Do the 49ers believe they are better at developing talent than other organizations or are they just as enamoured by the measurables that had these players ranked so high coming into the draft?

2) The contract structure being offered this year tends to have more voidable years than we have seen in the past.  This trend helps to play with the salary cap ... is the team mortgaging its future?

We want to hear from you!

I’m not looking forward to the next four months of endless draft and free agency discussions, so I hope you’re all ready to spend some more time on these topics too.

Overall, I think it’s pretty remarkable how little it has been discussed how the 49ers offense handled the crowd noise this time around.  Seattle had more false start penalties than the niners. By my count, we had only one delay of game penalty. We had three time ou...

PPThe End Of A Season, The End Of Hopes and Dreams [Blitz]
20 January 2014, 3:31 am

The 49ers did everything they could to lose that game.  They also did everything they could to keep teasing me into thinking they would pull it off at the end.  Losing sucks.  Losing to Seattle sucks more.  Losing Bowman the way we did makes it even worse.  I hope to all heck he comes back stronger.  My thoughts and prayers are with him… as I now begin to cheer for the Broncos.  I am cheering for them not because I like them but because I despite the Seahawks.  I despise them even more since hearing Sherman’s multiple post game interviews.  If there is one saving grace to this loss, it i...

In preview of each week’s game, 49ersParadise.com recaps some of the weeks best moments and the key notes you need to know before this week’s #49ers clash.

Opponent: vs Seahawks
Time (PST): Sunday 3:30 PM PST

Injury Report:
Navorro Bowman, Ahmad Brooks, Michael Crabtree, Demarcus Dobbs, Jonathan Goodwin, Frank Gore, Carlos Rogers, Dan Skuta, Justin Smith, Will Tukuafu


Recap:
The 49ers beat Carolina in a rematch from earlier in the season.  This time, the 49ers came prepared to score a few touchdowns.  The officiating continued to be awful, notwithstanding that, the game was tight in the first half, and the something clicked for the 49ers offense on the last drive of the half, and it was all over for Carolina.  The defense played remarkably well, making two goal line stops, showing Carolina a formation with Brooks as the middle linebacker - something they had not put on film all season.  Meanwhile, the offense depended on Boldin in key moments, but it was Davis and Kaepernick who scored the only touchdowns.  The win put the 49ers in their third Conference Championship in as many years - a record for Head Coach Harbaugh who is only 3 years into his job.

Game Plan:
OFFENSE: Score touchdowns.  Protect the Ball.
It sounds simple, but many of the 49ers drives have not ended in touchdowns.  They need to score more than field goals to beat the NFC West foe.  Also, this game may be decided by a single possession so maintaining control of the football is absolutely vital.  Seattle has done a good job of forcing turnovers when the two teams meet.

DEFENSE: Stop the run.  Force turnovers.  
You can’t ignore the running game of Seattle.  In fact, the 49ers will key in on stopping it.  If they can do that, they may be able to press Russell Wilson into turning the ball over - and that could be the difference in this game.  Rather than bend and not break, the 49ers defense has to suffocate Seattle.

Key Matchup:
49ers Secondary vs Russell Wilson
If the 49ers key in on stopping the run game, as I suspect they will, it may expose the defensive backfield to Russell Wilson.  The group has played well in recent weeks, but will need to step it up to beat the crafty Wilson.  Wilson can make plays from anywhere on the field, and somehow makes his receivers look better than they are.


49ers vs The Officials:
Boldin on whether Seattle gets away with holding penalties or not.
Q: Did you feel in your previous games against the Seahawks, was there anymore or less called against them than other games you played this year?
A: “If you get called for it, it’s holding. If not, it’s not holding. So, you just play football.”


Harbaugh-isms:
A: “Well, there are tough things about communication in a loud stadium, on the road that the offense will strive to be very precise at. But tough, this is only for the tough. This kind of game, this kind of point in the season. And our guys are very happy about it. They’re very excited and very much looking forward to this being a lot of fun. This kind of game, I was thinking of the things I would trade to be able to compete as a player in these games, in this game. It’s pretty significant.”
Q: What would you trade?
A: “There’s a lot. There’s a lot.”

Harbaugh vs the Media:
Q: That means do you need to come in and be physical right away?
A: “No desire to talk about what our plan is.”

Quote Of The Week:
We’ve been everywhere, man. (Singing)  Been to Reno, Chicago, Fargo, Minnesota, Buffalo, Toronto.”
- Jim Harbaugh on the 49ers recent travels
Taking out the trash:
“There’s no question there’s a lot of hostility between us, but at the end of the day, they’re another football team.” -- Patrick Willis on the 49ers vs Seahawks rivalry

PP49ers Advanced To 3rd Straight Title Game [Blitz]
13 January 2014, 1:23 am
Jim Harbaugh is the first head coach to go to a Division Championship game in each of his first 3 seasons.  More impressive? He took a team (that was admittedly loaded with talent) that had not had a winning season in an eternity, and turned it around.  Now the 49ers move on to Seattle, where they have not one in an eon, for a chance to go to their 2nd consecutive Super Bowl. 

This game was very tight heading into the half, when the 49ers seemed to finally figure out how to attack the Panthers.  They put together a touchdown drive that shifted momentum into their favor.  The defens...

In preview of each week’s game, 49ersParadise.com recaps some of the weeks best moments and the key notes you need to know before this week’s #49ers clash.

Opponent: vs Packers
Time (PST): Sunday 1:05 PM PST

Injury Report:
Jonathan Goodwin, Dan Skuta, Demarcus Dobbs, Frank Gore, Justin Smith, Michael Crabtree, Carlos Rogers, Navorro Bowman

Recap:
The 49ers beat Green Bay… but they should have put the nail in the coffin far earlier in the game.  They had Green Bay suffocated by some terrific defense, but failed to put touchdowns on the board.  Then, before you know it, the Packer found some room to breathe and were up 7-6.  From that point on, it was a blow-by-blow game and the 49ers once again had to depend on the steady leg of Phil Dawson to win the game.  The 49ers continue t have the Packer’s number in the Kaepernick era beating them first with Kap’s legs, then his arm, and then with a balanced approach.

Game Plan:
OFFENSE: Score touchdowns.  In the first matchup vs the Panthers the 49ers failed to score a touchdown.  They have some weapons back on offense this time around, but have struggled to score touchdowns in recent weeks as it is.  To beat the Panthers the 49ers need to score serious points.

DEFENSE: Contain Cam Newton.  Newton is a very athletic quarterback, something the 49ers have struggled to pin down when they face them.  The defense needs to contain him, and at the same time deliver a few knock out punches to rattle the Panthers in their first playoff game.  The Panthers will need a quick start, coming off their bye week and given their inexperience.  The 49ers can’t afford for that to happen.

Key Matchup:
Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin vs Panthers Secondary
The 49ers need to prove they can score touchdowns, and that means passing to the receivers.  Crabtree and Boldin have yet to be part of a game where they both have big games, and this would be an appropriate week for that kind of offense to pick up.  

49ers vs The Officials:
"I felt it was a hold and I thought I was going to get a flag, I guess they figured they would just let us play. So when when they make that decision, we just have to get off the blocks a little faster." -- Ray McDonald on the should-have-been-a-penalty when he was being held on Rogers 4th down conversion.


Harbaugh-isms:
Matt Maiocco explains some odd behaviour by coach Harbaugh as follows:
QUOTE: 
Having gotten my explanation out of the way, I nudged him with my left elbow and said, “Hey, congratulations.” That’s when Harbaugh wrapped his right arm around my neck, pulled me tight and yelled -- I mean, YELLED -- “Thank you, Matt! I love you!”  Then, Harbaugh saw Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee just a stride or two ahead of us and he continued. “I love you, too, Matt.” Harbaugh then planted a kiss firmly on Barrows’ bald head.
END QUOTE


Harbaugh vs the Media:
Harbaugh: “I don’t know. What’s the matter with having two favorite teams? Is that a crime? [Santa Rosa Press Democrat columnist] Lowell [Cohn], is that a crime? Does it make you a bad person if you like—?”
Cohn: “Apparently in Carolina it does, yeah.”
Harbaugh: “My opinion would be that it doesn’t make you a bad person to have two favorite football teams.”


Quote Of The Week:
The media asked Kaepernick about his tackle last week:
Q: It was pretty good. Did you like your form and how would you critique it?
A: “No, he snuck me a little bit. I thought he was going to try and hit the sidelines, so he got under me a little bit. Wish I could have that back.”

Taking out the trash:
Former 49ers’ Long Snapper Brian Jennings rips into Cam Newton for his lack of Pro Bowl preparation:
“We have Drew Brees with his playbook all week, studying. … We have Cam Newton with his head phones on all week goofing off. … We go into the game, and this guy is chucking the ball all over the place, and everybody is looking around going, ‘What’s this guy doing? Are you kidding?’ The punter and I look at each other and say, ‘We are going to have a long second half.’ We punted five times.”
“He went in there and stank it up. He never looked at his playbook and he’s chucking the ball all over the place. He can’t hit the open guy.”

In preview of each week’s game, 49ersParadise.com recaps some of the weeks best moments and the key notes you need to know before this week’s #49ers clash.

Opponent: vs Packers
Time (PST): Sunday 1:40 PM PST

Injury Report:
CB Carlos Rogers (hamstring), LB Dan Skuta (foot), CB Eric Wright (hamstring), WR Jon Baldwin (illness), LB Navorro Bowman (wrist), CB Tarell Brown (ribs), C Jonathan Goodwin (not injury related), RB Frank Gore (knee), G Mike Iupati (knee), DT Justin Smith (shoulder).


Recap:
It was an odd game, after jumping up 17-0 and dominating the first quarter, the 49ers went to sleep.  Bowman dominated the field, and Dawson - whose field goal streak came to a close early in the game, made two key kicks for the win.  The real question… have the 49ers been playing it close to the vest all season to keep their opponents guessing, or are they really not firing on all cylinders?  We should start to see the truth this weekend in the Wild Card matchup vs Greenbay.  

Game Plan:
OFFENSE:  The 49ers need to dominate the line of scrimmage.  We don’t know if the team will come out running, passing, or with a balanced attack.  They have so far kept the Packers guessing.  The weather lends itself to a heavy ground game, and that could get interesting between Kaepernick, Gore, Hunter, James and Dixon - the 49ers have what it takes to make that type of game interesting.

DEFENSE: The 49ers have a big question at cornerback as Carlos Rogers and Eric Wright are battling hamstring injuries.  The success of this defense will depend on whether the 49ers front can get enough pressure on the Packers that the cornerbacks are not exposed in coverage.  Simple? only on paper.

Key Matchup:
Jim Harbaugh/Greg Roman vs Dom Capers: So far Capers has been a few games behind what the 49ers do on the field against Green Bay.  If the 49ers have the Packers as confused this weekend as in the past three games, this could be a walk-a-way victory.  If not, expect a grudge match with the Packers seeking revenge.

49ers vs The Officials:
Nothing to report


Harbaugh-isms:
“I’m just boiling it down Barney-style for myself. And, we’ll take that approach and see if it works.” -- Harbaugh keeping football simple, especially on the road

Harbaugh vs the Media:
Q: Stylistically, what’s the biggest difference?
A: Stylistically, I don’t know any stylistically.

Quote Of The Week:
“It was a great performance. Spectacular. And, there’s been many since.” -- Harbaguh on Boldin’s week 1 performance
Taking out the trash:
“If we can do what we did the first game and eliminate the run game, and force him to pass, I think we have a better deal going on this time to be able to stop it,” Packers LB Mike Neal said.

In preview of each week’s game, 49ersParadise.com recaps some of the weeks best moments and the key notes you need to know before this week’s #49ers clash.

Opponent: vs Buccaneers
Time (PST): Sunday 1:25 PM PST

Injury Report:
Frank Gore, Joe Staley, Mike Iupati, Dan Skuta, Craig Dahl, Justin Smith, Tarell Brown, Michael Crabtree, Vance McDonald, Mario Manningham, Ray McDonald, Adam Snyder, Aldon Smith

Recap:
In an epic battle, the 49ers toughened up and fought for a victory over the Seahawks.  It took everything the 49ers had to beat Seattle - but the 49ers walked away with victory thanks to Frank Gore’s longest run of the season.  Special Teams highlighted the day with Dawson’s great kicking, some amazing coverage, and a blocked punt.  Kaepernick played good enough, the defense played lights out, and there began the makings of a statement.  This team may come together just in time.

Game Plan:
OFFENSE:  This continues to be quite simple.  Own the line of scrimmage. Get the passing game going.  It should be a unique challenge facing the Bucs who have a pretty good secondary.  I would love to see the Niners test their depth by going to 3 and 4 WRs with some regularity.

DEFENSE:  I suspect the 49ers will play their traditional game.  The Bucs offense is not something to be truly scared of, so the team just needs to play its game and not sit back and wait for the Bucs to take it to the.  On both sides of the ball really, the Niners need to make sure their heads are in the game after a very big game last week.


Key Matchup:
Dashon Goldson will be seeking revenge as he roams the defensive backfield.  Kaepernick needs to be accurate with the ball - something he hasn’t done all that well this season, and the receivers need to protect themselves - especially when going over the middle.  That collision between Vernon Davis and Dashon Goldson we have all been waiting to see? Well, you can bet the two will bang into each other in a big way at some point this week.


49ers vs The Officials:
“It does. That you could benefit from a foul, I don’t think anybody wants that. So, the solution possibly is you treat it like the ball was kicked. Kicking and batting would be the same. It would be a loss of down. But, that’s for the Competition Committee to decide.”  -- Harbaugh on the batting of a ball penalty after a blocked punt


Harbaugh-isms:
"I suppose Abraham Lincoln riding across the field with a frock (coat) and a top hat, riding a horse, waving an American flag -- I doubt that would fire them up if this game doesn't fire them up.” -- Habaugh on how big the 49ers vs Seahawks Rivalry is


Harbaugh vs the Media:
Q: “So, when do you leave for Austin, Texas?”
A:  “Are you trying to be funny?”
Q: “Trying.”

Quote Of The Week:
“He doesn’t need to prepare for press conferences and come up with a routine like Jay Leno. It’s not his job to come out for 15 minutes and do a monologue. He’s got a lot of things to study for his job. That’s what he needs to do – his job.” -- Harbuagh on the way Kaepernick handles the media

Taking out the trash:
“If we make eye contact, I’ll acknowledge him out of respect,” -- Anthony Davis on his for coach who he faces this week.

Opponent: vs Seahawks
Time (PST): Sunday 1:25 PM PST

Injury Report:
Navorro Bowman, Justin Smith, Mario Manningham, Frank Gore, Mike Iupati, Quinton Patton, Ahmad Brooks, Aldon Smith, Garrett Celek, Dan Skuta, Tarell Brown, Ray McDonald

Recap:
The 49ers were playing to keep hold of a playoff spot and in doing so they systematically controlled the game.  Even at that there was plenty of room to improve against the Rams.  The run game continued to struggle, and despite some big efforts by Boldin and Davis, there was very little involvement of Crabtree or Manningham.  The defense on the other hand played lights out, and special teams were on fire - with the exception of a muffed punt by LaMichael James.

Game Plan:
OFFENSE: Just like last time, the Niners need to control the line of scrimmage and get the ball to their receivers.  The Hawks do an incredible job of holding receivers and getting away with it.  The 49ers need to finally impose their will on offense. 

DEFENSE:  Containing Russell Wilson and forcing him to make a decision in 3 seconds is key.  The 49ers will rely on their front 4 to get a rush on Wilson and set the edge.  This is far easier said than done, but having the defensive front that the 49ers do, if any team can slow down the Rams it will be the Niners.


Key Matchup:
Michael Crabtree vs the Seahawks defensive backfield.  Earlier in the season the Hawks showed they can control Davis and Boldin.  The 49ers need to get the Hawks to double up one of their receivers, and that means Crabtree has to be so physical off the line the Hawks are left with no choice.  If he can be effective early it should open up the other receiving threats, including Maningham under neath.

nothing to report


Harbaugh-isms:
"I suppose Abraham Lincoln riding across the field with a frock (coat) and a top hat, riding a horse, waving an American flag -- I doubt that would fire them up if this game doesn't fire them up.” -- Habaugh on how big the 49ers vs Seahawks Rivalry is


Harbaugh vs the Media:
Normally I reserve this spot for Harbaugh, but Kaepernick’s sparring with the media deserves some attention:
Q: “That was the first smile I’ve seen with all the media around you in a long time. Do you not like this, you’re so guarded it seems. Would you just like to cut loose sometimes and speak more extemporaneously or just let it all fly?”
A: “Well, I signed a contract to play football. The media is just something I have the obligation to do.”

Quote Of The Week:
"We're so excited to have him back. You don't know what you're going to get. Get your popcorn and get ready for the show, because with him there, it's going to be pretty exciting with all the guys that we have.” -- Vernon Davis on the return of Crabtree


Taking out the trash:
"It might be the most intense game this season, because those guys don't like us, and we don't like them," -- Vernon Davis on playing the division rival Seahawks

In preview of each week’s game, 49ersParadise.com recaps some of the weeks best moments and the key notes you need to know before this week’s #49ers clash.

Opponent: vs Rams
Time (PST): Sunday 1 PM PST

Injury Report:
Navorro Bowman, Justin Smith, Mario Manningham, Frank Gore, Mike Iupati, Quinton Patton, Ahmad Brooks, Aldon Smith, Garrett Celek, Dan Skuta, Tarell Brown, Ray McDonald


Recap:
The 49ers were in a must win scenario on Monday night, half a game back of the Arizona Cardinals for the last playoff spot.  They beat a very bad Redskins team, and only looked “ok” doing so.  Kaepernick through for 3 touchdowns, as the 49ers passing attack started to come alive.  The running game was non-existent playing against 8 and 9 fronts just as the prior two weeks.  The 49ers got a lift on special teams from LaMichael James, and Phil Dawson continued to be money as a place kicker.  Finally the defensive front unloaded 6 sacks, 2 each by Aldon Smith, Justin Smith and Ahmad Brooks.


Game Plan:
OFFENSE: Counter punch.  If the Rams are in run protect all game, the 49ers need to let the passing game explode, stretching the field wide and far.  If the Rams try and protect with cover 2, expect Gore to eat them alive.

DEFENSE:  The 49ers will be tested in the middle of the field, both against the run and the pass.  The team must hold its containment while still getting their pass rush on.


Key Matchup:
Michael Crabtree vs the Rams defensive backfield.  Nothing would ignite the 49ers offense more than an early big touchdown pass to Crabtree.  I expect the Rams to be ready for Crabtree to be a big part of the game plan, whether he is or not will remain to be seen.  Crabtree may not even have to catch a pass to loosen up the Rams defense.

49ers vs The Officials:
“When defensive penalties happen, they should review them, it’s a call that goes up in the air.”  - Brooks on the need to review defensive penalties to avoid bad calls like the sack on Brees two weeks ago.


Harbaugh-isms:
"Well, I mean, nobody knows what the rear is right now, as it stands now. But, it's definitely a strong division."  -- Harbaugh on the strength of the NFC West


Harbaugh vs the Media:
Q: “I'm asking this because you have a fair share of adversity this year unlike your first two seasons here, but have you had to invoke Freddy P. Soft this year?”
A: "No. Not that I can recall. The fellas have been preparing great every week. And, that's where it starts. That's where we're at today. And, we're looking for a good day today."


Quote Of The Week:
“Really, getting started early. I recognize when I’m able to make a lot of plays, not just during the week in preparing, but when that game’s starting, feeling what the team’s trying to do. In this league, if something successful happens on one play, they’re going to come back to that play, so you try not to let it happen a second time. Just me playing a full 60 minute game and letting the game come to me.”  - Navorro Bowman on his favorite part of football.

Opponent: vs Redskins
Time (PST): Monday 8:40 PM

Injury Report:
Garrett Celek, Ray McDonald, Dan Skuta, Colin Kaepernick, Mario Manningham, Quinton Dial, Tarell Brown, Mike Iupati, Quinton Patton, Justin Smith, Frank Gore


Recap:
It may have been a penalty away from icing the game, but the 49ers did not deserve to win for the second straight week.  The offense came to a pitter-pattering halt for the second straight week, as the Saints consumed the run by stacking the box and daring Kaepernick to throw.  Receivers were open, and Kaepernick got a bit more protection from his line than last week (though that is not saying much) yet the offense could not capitalize at all.  The 49ers play a woeful but desperate team this week, and if they can’t break out the offense this week, than it may really, really, be time to call for changes.


Game Plan:
OFFENSE: It sounds simple, but score points.  Don’t worry about establishing the run.  Come out and throw the ball.  Spread the offense out so Kaepernick can see the field, and throw the ball.  Can they execute?

DEFENSE:  The 49ers have struggled to stop the run up the middle of the field and have not been able to get to the quarterback.  That is what the team needs to make happen if they want to send a message to the NFL.  


Key Matchup:
Colin Kaepernick vs the Redskins Defense.  1 versus many.  Kaepernick needs to prove to his team and the entire NFL that he can pick a defense apart.  Otherwise the Niners may as well pack it in now.  Even though the turnaround may come against an awful team, the momentum is needed to start righting this ship.


Harbaugh setting up the officials:
Q: Can you maybe elaborate why you think it’s a bad call?
A: “I said it’s the official’s call to make. I’m going to see it with my eyes and I’m explaining that maybe that’s because it’s through my eyes, my perspective, our perspective of this team. So, possibly that could explain.”



Harbaugh-isms:
Q: You went through a similar line of questioning earlier this year with S Donte Whitner with a hit in the end zone. Does it seem like anytime there is a big hit, a violent hit, no matter whether it’s legal or illegal, it’s going to get called at this point in the stage of the NFL?
A: “Well, I mean, this isn’t NASCAR. This isn’t where the drivers and the owners after the game or the race get up there and start throwing punches at each other and questioning every call and everybody’s in everybody’s face heated, etcetera. Or the next day, talking about how the points went. We can’t argue that. And you know that. You know I can’t stand up here and make these comments. So, that’s two different worlds. There’s NASCAR and there’s professional football. So, it’s not our place as coaches to talk about that.”


Harbaugh vs the Media:
Q: “Yesterday, RB Frank Gore mentioned the last two opponents have had good defensive schemes. You kind of alluded to, I think Monday, the last two opponents have attacked you very differently as far as from a defensive standpoint. Is that, with all due respect, have you guys been out-schemed?”
A: "No. I wouldn't say that."

Quote Of The Week:
"This is the most embarrassing call in the NFL since the tuck rule."  -- Ray Lewis on the Brooks hit / penalty versus the Saints.  Lewis also offered to fund have any fine that comes from that hit


Taking out the trash:
“I know Monday night, Washington is going to be pumped, and we’re trying to get back on track to where we want to be, and that’s the playoffs,” -- Frank Gore on trying to right the ship against Washington

In preview of each week’s game, 49ersParadise.com recaps some of the weeks best moments and the key notes you need to know before this week’s #49ers clash.

Opponent: vs Saints
Time (PST): Sunday Nov 17th, 4:25 PST

Injury Report:
Justin Smith, Garrett Celek, Mario Manningham, Quinton Dial, Frank Gore, Tarell Brown, Ray McDonald, Mike Iupati, Bruce Miller, Eric Reid, Andy Lee, Dan Skuta, Vernon Davis, Quinton Patton

Recap:
The 49ers loss to Carolina was scary for a few reasons.  First, it was at home.  Second, it basically eliminated their chance of winning the NFC West.  Third, it revealed a lack of creativity on offense.  Fourth it showed just how easy it can be to get to Kaepernick.  Fifth, the 49ers got banged up.  Really, really, really banged up.  Vernon Davis and Eric Reid are set to return despite two concussions in the past year, but Ray MacDonald is out, Manningham is questionable and there are many others on a growing injury list.

Game Plan:
OFFENSE: The 49ers need to show they can sling the ball, be creative on offense, and still get Frank Gore the touches that he needs to take over a game.  This game is going to come down to controlling the line of scrimmage to allow Kaepernick to do his thing - and that might sound easy on paper, but it really, really is not.
DEFENSE:  The 49ers defense really just needs to keep doing what they have been doing all year.  Really, that means keeping the opposition out of the endzone.  That will be a very difficult task against the Saints who have proven - as recently as last week to have all the firepower they need.  How will the Niners adjust to bringing Aldon Smith back? To playing without Ray Mac? Or to a safety in Eric Reid who may be a bit more timid? 

Key Matchup:
Greg Roman vs the Saints the Defense
The 49ers coaching staff have been able to skirt bye for too long now.  They got an easy pass because they turned this team around… perhaps with some suboptimal situations.  Now is the time that the 49ers coaching staff -specifically Greg Roman needs to prove it can be creative and get the offense rolling up yards and points and dictating the terms of the game.  Is Roman up to that task?

Harbaugh setting up the officials:
Nothing to report

Harbaugh-isms:
"Schemes are ever-evolving. Yes, we've seen new schemes." -- Harbaugh on the changing nature of the Saints

Harbaugh vs the Media:
Q: Not to rake him over the coals, but is that something that a young quarterback is always working on, always improving upon? That seems to be one of the toughest parts about playing quarterback is that something that naturally a young guy has to continue to get better at.
A: “I understand. I understand what you’re doing, what you’re trying to do and glomming onto somebody’s opinion, but I think it’s whatever they think. The main thing is that we’ll look at it and talk about it with our players and see the areas that we can improve. Just dissecting it as a unit, we had too many negative plays in te game, too many negative plays, loss of yardage plays, penalties, sack, turnover, that we’ve got to get better at. We didn’t do a good enough job.
Quote Of The Week:
"We didn't play championship football offensively this week." -- Harbaugh  on the 49ers loss to Carolina

Taking out the trash:
“We’ll be ready,” Gore said in reference to what the Saints may throw the 49ers way.

I’m normally an optimist but this year I just have a nagging feeling we’re all in for a letdown. Here are the seven main reasons for my pessimism:

1. Competition in NFC West
It just seems to get harder and harder to win this division. The Cards offense was on fire in the first pre-season game and their defense was already very good. The Rams are young but very talented, Bradford is back and they always play the niners hard. Seattle has not gotten worse.
2. Injuries

PP49ers rob Bills of Stevie Johnson... [Blitz]

The 49ers trade for Stevie Johnson is a very significant move for the club.  The trade, for the dynamic WR gives up a 2015 4th pick conditional performance could make it a 3rd round pick.  From a talent perspective, this is a big time robbery.  There is a question mark on Johnson's character, and injury history though.  The Bay Area native has been fighting lingering injuries to his groin and back.

When it comes to talent, Johnson is loaded.  He also has taken Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman to task - as can be seen here.  His ability to b...

This game was very tight heading into the half, when the 49ers seemed to finally figure out how to attack the Panthers.  They put together a touchdown drive that shifted momentum into their favor.  The defens...

The quarterbacks are a long way away from capable insurance to Kaepernick. Johnson is probably the best option, and that is not saying much at all. Big questions on the defensive line given none of the starters were on the field. Even when they return it will be hard to find a solution at NT... though both Carradine and Dial had their moments. The team has no answer to a mobile quarterback either. On offense, there is not much behind Hyde. Ellington did look good relative to the scabs he was playing against. Not much faith in overall protection packages as the game wore on.

On the other hand, pressure was successful, Dial forced a fumble and Ward blew the run game up in the backfield.

+San Francisco 49ers fans everywhere may be catching on to two of Trent Baalke's favorite offseason ...+San Francisco 49ers fans everywhere may be catching on to two of Trent Baalke's favorite offseason tactics this year.  We at 49ersParadise.com want to hear what you have to say about them.  

1) The #49ers  have made a concerted effort over the past few years to add former high draft picks who have underperformed since their rookie season.  In this way, they can extend that year's draft to pick up more first round picks for a much lesser price (by trade this sometimes accounts to a 6th  or 7th rounder, and in some cases the players are free agents).  Do the 49ers believe they are better at developing talent than other organizations or are they just as enamoured by the measurables that had these players ranked so high coming into the draft?

2) The contract structure being offered this year tends to have more voidable years than we have seen in the past.  This trend helps to play with the salary cap ... is the team mortgaging its future?

We want to hear from you!

In preview of each week’s game, 49ersParadise.com recaps some of the weeks best moments and the key notes you need to know before this week’s #49ers clash.

Opponent: vs Seahawks
Time (PST): Sunday 3:30 PM PST

Injury Report:
Navorro Bowman, Ahmad Brooks, Michael Crabtree, Demarcus Dobbs, Jonathan Goodwin, Frank Gore, Carlos Rogers, Dan Skuta, Justin Smith, Will Tukuafu


Recap:
The 49ers beat Carolina in a rematch from earlier in the season.  This time, the 49ers came prepared to score a few touchdowns.  The officiating continued to be awful, notwithstanding that, the game was tight in the first half, and the something clicked for the 49ers offense on the last drive of the half, and it was all over for Carolina.  The defense played remarkably well, making two goal line stops, showing Carolina a formation with Brooks as the middle linebacker - something they had not put on film all season.  Meanwhile, the offense depended on Boldin in key moments, but it was Davis and Kaepernick who scored the only touchdowns.  The win put the 49ers in their third Conference Championship in as many years - a record for Head Coach Harbaugh who is only 3 years into his job.

Game Plan:
OFFENSE: Score touchdowns.  Protect the Ball.
It sounds simple, but many of the 49ers drives have not ended in touchdowns.  They need to score more than field goals to beat the NFC West foe.  Also, this game may be decided by a single possession so maintaining control of the football is absolutely vital.  Seattle has done a good job of forcing turnovers when the two teams meet.

DEFENSE: Stop the run.  Force turnovers.  
You can’t ignore the running game of Seattle.  In fact, the 49ers will key in on stopping it.  If they can do that, they may be able to press Russell Wilson into turning the ball over - and that could be the difference in this game.  Rather than bend and not break, the 49ers defense has to suffocate Seattle.

Key Matchup:
49ers Secondary vs Russell Wilson
If the 49ers key in on stopping the run game, as I suspect they will, it may expose the defensive backfield to Russell Wilson.  The group has played well in recent weeks, but will need to step it up to beat the crafty Wilson.  Wilson can make plays from anywhere on the field, and somehow makes his receivers look better than they are.


49ers vs The Officials:
Boldin on whether Seattle gets away with holding penalties or not.
Q: Did you feel in your previous games against the Seahawks, was there anymore or less called against them than other games you played this year?
A: “If you get called for it, it’s holding. If not, it’s not holding. So, you just play football.”


Harbaugh-isms:
A: “Well, there are tough things about communication in a loud stadium, on the road that the offense will strive to be very precise at. But tough, this is only for the tough. This kind of game, this kind of point in the season. And our guys are very happy about it. They’re very excited and very much looking forward to this being a lot of fun. This kind of game, I was thinking of the things I would trade to be able to compete as a player in these games, in this game. It’s pretty significant.”
Q: What would you trade?
A: “There’s a lot. There’s a lot.”

Harbaugh vs the Media:
Q: That means do you need to come in and be physical right away?
A: “No desire to talk about what our plan is.”

Quote Of The Week:
We’ve been everywhere, man. (Singing)  Been to Reno, Chicago, Fargo, Minnesota, Buffalo, Toronto.”
- Jim Harbaugh on the 49ers recent travels
Taking out the trash:
“There’s no question there’s a lot of hostility between us, but at the end of the day, they’re another football team.” -- Patrick Willis on the 49ers vs Seahawks rivalry

In preview of each week’s game, 49ersParadise.com recaps some of the weeks best moments and the key notes you need to know before this week’s #49ers clash.

Opponent: vs Packers
Time (PST): Sunday 1:05 PM PST

Injury Report:
Jonathan Goodwin, Dan Skuta, Demarcus Dobbs, Frank Gore, Justin Smith, Michael Crabtree, Carlos Rogers, Navorro Bowman

Recap:
The 49ers beat Green Bay… but they should have put the nail in the coffin far earlier in the game.  They had Green Bay suffocated by some terrific defense, but failed to put touchdowns on the board.  Then, before you know it, the Packer found some room to breathe and were up 7-6.  From that point on, it was a blow-by-blow game and the 49ers once again had to depend on the steady leg of Phil Dawson to win the game.  The 49ers continue t have the Packer’s number in the Kaepernick era beating them first with Kap’s legs, then his arm, and then with a balanced approach.

Game Plan:
OFFENSE: Score touchdowns.  In the first matchup vs the Panthers the 49ers failed to score a touchdown.  They have some weapons back on offense this time around, but have struggled to score touchdowns in recent weeks as it is.  To beat the Panthers the 49ers need to score serious points.

DEFENSE: Contain Cam Newton.  Newton is a very athletic quarterback, something the 49ers have struggled to pin down when they face them.  The defense needs to contain him, and at the same time deliver a few knock out punches to rattle the Panthers in their first playoff game.  The Panthers will need a quick start, coming off their bye week and given their inexperience.  The 49ers can’t afford for that to happen.

Key Matchup:
Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin vs Panthers Secondary
The 49ers need to prove they can score touchdowns, and that means passing to the receivers.  Crabtree and Boldin have yet to be part of a game where they both have big games, and this would be an appropriate week for that kind of offense to pick up.  

49ers vs The Officials:
"I felt it was a hold and I thought I was going to get a flag, I guess they figured they would just let us play. So when when they make that decision, we just have to get off the blocks a little faster." -- Ray McDonald on the should-have-been-a-penalty when he was being held on Rogers 4th down conversion.


Harbaugh-isms:
Matt Maiocco explains some odd behaviour by coach Harbaugh as follows:
QUOTE: 
Having gotten my explanation out of the way, I nudged him with my left elbow and said, “Hey, congratulations.” That’s when Harbaugh wrapped his right arm around my neck, pulled me tight and yelled -- I mean, YELLED -- “Thank you, Matt! I love you!”  Then, Harbaugh saw Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee just a stride or two ahead of us and he continued. “I love you, too, Matt.” Harbaugh then planted a kiss firmly on Barrows’ bald head.
END QUOTE


Harbaugh vs the Media:
Harbaugh: “I don’t know. What’s the matter with having two favorite teams? Is that a crime? [Santa Rosa Press Democrat columnist] Lowell [Cohn], is that a crime? Does it make you a bad person if you like—?”
Cohn: “Apparently in Carolina it does, yeah.”
Harbaugh: “My opinion would be that it doesn’t make you a bad person to have two favorite football teams.”


Quote Of The Week:
The media asked Kaepernick about his tackle last week:
Q: It was pretty good. Did you like your form and how would you critique it?
A: “No, he snuck me a little bit. I thought he was going to try and hit the sidelines, so he got under me a little bit. Wish I could have that back.”

Taking out the trash:
Former 49ers’ Long Snapper Brian Jennings rips into Cam Newton for his lack of Pro Bowl preparation:
“We have Drew Brees with his playbook all week, studying. … We have Cam Newton with his head phones on all week goofing off. … We go into the game, and this guy is chucking the ball all over the place, and everybody is looking around going, ‘What’s this guy doing? Are you kidding?’ The punter and I look at each other and say, ‘We are going to have a long second half.’ We punted five times.”
“He went in there and stank it up. He never looked at his playbook and he’s chucking the ball all over the place. He can’t hit the open guy.”

Dorsey will be on IR before the cuts.  Snyder is a journeyman and there are teams desperate for reliable OGs ... and as not-good-enough he is, I wouldn't be at all surprised if he got a job somewhere.

I even think the domestic violence policy might be too tough. I wonder what the details are? Do you have to be convicted of the crime of domestic violence ? What happens if a woman just accuses you of hitting her ? What if there are extenuating circumstances, like self defense, etc?

I prefer listening to a QB who played the position in the League for many years and even won a SB(Dilfer), over some out of town blogger, especially when Kap backed up Dilfer's take on the progressions issue..
But since it was Cossell speaking this time I will listen since I respect his opinion. But even Cossell is wrong sometimes, like he clearly is this time.

I think the only reason Tolzien was kept over JJ was because Tolzien was the same type of QB that Alex was, a game manager who would stay in the pocket and dump off the ball and not take chances, Alex Jr.
 While JJ is more like Kap ,he can run and get away from the pass rush and make things happen with his legs if the receiver is not open, or if they call a QB run.

JJ, has tried and failed to make the niners (and other teams) before.
I don't think he failed, I think the 49ers made the wrong choice then and failed him. He was clearly better than Tolzien then, as he is clearly better than Gabbert now."

The quarterbacks are a long way away from capable insurance to Kaepernick. Johnson is probably the best option, and that is not saying much at all. Big questions on the defensive line given none of the starters were on the field. Even when they return it will be hard to find a solution at NT... though both Carradine and Dial had their moments. The team has no answer to a mobile quarterback either. On offense, there is not much behind Hyde. Ellington did look good relative to the scabs he was playing against. Not much faith in overall protection packages as the game wore on.

Very susceptible to the screen, and no answer for a quarterback that can move the pocket. The team also has a huge hole at nose tackle. On the other hand, pressure was successful, Dial forced a fumble and Ward blew the run game up in the backfield. Vance McDonald held onto the one and only pass that Kaepernick threw, Hyde looks solid, and Hampton was given a great opportunity on 3rd and 1 that he could not convert. 10 minutes to go in the half.

1) The #49ers  have made a concerted effort over the past few years to add former high draft picks who have underperformed since their rookie season.  In this way, they can extend that year's draft to pick up more first round picks for a much lesser price (by trade this sometimes accounts to a 6th  or 7th rounder, and in some cases the players are free agents).  Do the 49ers believe they are better at developing talent than other organizations or are they just as enamoured by the measurables that had these players ranked so high coming into the draft?

2) The contract structure being offered this year tends to have more voidable years than we have seen in the past.  This trend helps to play with the salary cap ... is the team mortgaging its future?

We want to hear from you!

In preview of each week’s game, 49ersParadise.com recaps some of the weeks best moments and the key notes you need to know before this week’s #49ers clash.

Opponent: vs Seahawks
Time (PST): Sunday 3:30 PM PST

Injury Report:
Navorro Bowman, Ahmad Brooks, Michael Crabtree, Demarcus Dobbs, Jonathan Goodwin, Frank Gore, Carlos Rogers, Dan Skuta, Justin Smith, Will Tukuafu


Recap:
The 49ers beat Carolina in a rematch from earlier in the season.  This time, the 49ers came prepared to score a few touchdowns.  The officiating continued to be awful, notwithstanding that, the game was tight in the first half, and the something clicked for the 49ers offense on the last drive of the half, and it was all over for Carolina.  The defense played remarkably well, making two goal line stops, showing Carolina a formation with Brooks as the middle linebacker - something they had not put on film all season.  Meanwhile, the offense depended on Boldin in key moments, but it was Davis and Kaepernick who scored the only touchdowns.  The win put the 49ers in their third Conference Championship in as many years - a record for Head Coach Harbaugh who is only 3 years into his job.

Game Plan:
OFFENSE: Score touchdowns.  Protect the Ball.
It sounds simple, but many of the 49ers drives have not ended in touchdowns.  They need to score more than field goals to beat the NFC West foe.  Also, this game may be decided by a single possession so maintaining control of the football is absolutely vital.  Seattle has done a good job of forcing turnovers when the two teams meet.

DEFENSE: Stop the run.  Force turnovers.  
You can’t ignore the running game of Seattle.  In fact, the 49ers will key in on stopping it.  If they can do that, they may be able to press Russell Wilson into turning the ball over - and that could be the difference in this game.  Rather than bend and not break, the 49ers defense has to suffocate Seattle.

Key Matchup:
49ers Secondary vs Russell Wilson
If the 49ers key in on stopping the run game, as I suspect they will, it may expose the defensive backfield to Russell Wilson.  The group has played well in recent weeks, but will need to step it up to beat the crafty Wilson.  Wilson can make plays from anywhere on the field, and somehow makes his receivers look better than they are.


49ers vs The Officials:
Boldin on whether Seattle gets away with holding penalties or not.
Q: Did you feel in your previous games against the Seahawks, was there anymore or less called against them than other games you played this year?
A: “If you get called for it, it’s holding. If not, it’s not holding. So, you just play football.”


Harbaugh-isms:
A: “Well, there are tough things about communication in a loud stadium, on the road that the offense will strive to be very precise at. But tough, this is only for the tough. This kind of game, this kind of point in the season. And our guys are very happy about it. They’re very excited and very much looking forward to this being a lot of fun. This kind of game, I was thinking of the things I would trade to be able to compete as a player in these games, in this game. It’s pretty significant.”
Q: What would you trade?
A: “There’s a lot. There’s a lot.”

Harbaugh vs the Media:
Q: That means do you need to come in and be physical right away?
A: “No desire to talk about what our plan is.”

Quote Of The Week:
We’ve been everywhere, man. (Singing)  Been to Reno, Chicago, Fargo, Minnesota, Buffalo, Toronto.”
- Jim Harbaugh on the 49ers recent travels
Taking out the trash:
“There’s no question there’s a lot of hostility between us, but at the end of the day, they’re another football team.” -- Patrick Willis on the 49ers vs Seahawks rivalry

In preview of each week’s game, 49ersParadise.com recaps some of the weeks best moments and the key notes you need to know before this week’s #49ers clash.

Opponent: vs Packers
Time (PST): Sunday 1:05 PM PST

Injury Report:
Jonathan Goodwin, Dan Skuta, Demarcus Dobbs, Frank Gore, Justin Smith, Michael Crabtree, Carlos Rogers, Navorro Bowman

Recap:
The 49ers beat Green Bay… but they should have put the nail in the coffin far earlier in the game.  They had Green Bay suffocated by some terrific defense, but failed to put touchdowns on the board.  Then, before you know it, the Packer found some room to breathe and were up 7-6.  From that point on, it was a blow-by-blow game and the 49ers once again had to depend on the steady leg of Phil Dawson to win the game.  The 49ers continue t have the Packer’s number in the Kaepernick era beating them first with Kap’s legs, then his arm, and then with a balanced approach.

Game Plan:
OFFENSE: Score touchdowns.  In the first matchup vs the Panthers the 49ers failed to score a touchdown.  They have some weapons back on offense this time around, but have struggled to score touchdowns in recent weeks as it is.  To beat the Panthers the 49ers need to score serious points.

DEFENSE: Contain Cam Newton.  Newton is a very athletic quarterback, something the 49ers have struggled to pin down when they face them.  The defense needs to contain him, and at the same time deliver a few knock out punches to rattle the Panthers in their first playoff game.  The Panthers will need a quick start, coming off their bye week and given their inexperience.  The 49ers can’t afford for that to happen.

Key Matchup:
Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin vs Panthers Secondary
The 49ers need to prove they can score touchdowns, and that means passing to the receivers.  Crabtree and Boldin have yet to be part of a game where they both have big games, and this would be an appropriate week for that kind of offense to pick up.  

49ers vs The Officials:
"I felt it was a hold and I thought I was going to get a flag, I guess they figured they would just let us play. So when when they make that decision, we just have to get off the blocks a little faster." -- Ray McDonald on the should-have-been-a-penalty when he was being held on Rogers 4th down conversion.


Harbaugh-isms:
Matt Maiocco explains some odd behaviour by coach Harbaugh as follows:
QUOTE: 
Having gotten my explanation out of the way, I nudged him with my left elbow and said, “Hey, congratulations.” That’s when Harbaugh wrapped his right arm around my neck, pulled me tight and yelled -- I mean, YELLED -- “Thank you, Matt! I love you!”  Then, Harbaugh saw Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee just a stride or two ahead of us and he continued. “I love you, too, Matt.” Harbaugh then planted a kiss firmly on Barrows’ bald head.
END QUOTE


Harbaugh vs the Media:
Harbaugh: “I don’t know. What’s the matter with having two favorite teams? Is that a crime? [Santa Rosa Press Democrat columnist] Lowell [Cohn], is that a crime? Does it make you a bad person if you like—?”
Cohn: “Apparently in Carolina it does, yeah.”
Harbaugh: “My opinion would be that it doesn’t make you a bad person to have two favorite football teams.”


Quote Of The Week:
The media asked Kaepernick about his tackle last week:
Q: It was pretty good. Did you like your form and how would you critique it?
A: “No, he snuck me a little bit. I thought he was going to try and hit the sidelines, so he got under me a little bit. Wish I could have that back.”

Taking out the trash:
Former 49ers’ Long Snapper Brian Jennings rips into Cam Newton for his lack of Pro Bowl preparation:
“We have Drew Brees with his playbook all week, studying. … We have Cam Newton with his head phones on all week goofing off. … We go into the game, and this guy is chucking the ball all over the place, and everybody is looking around going, ‘What’s this guy doing? Are you kidding?’ The punter and I look at each other and say, ‘We are going to have a long second half.’ We punted five times.”
“He went in there and stank it up. He never looked at his playbook and he’s chucking the ball all over the place. He can’t hit the open guy.”

In preview of each week’s game, 49ersParadise.com recaps some of the weeks best moments and the key notes you need to know before this week’s #49ers clash.

Opponent: vs Packers
Time (PST): Sunday 1:40 PM PST

Injury Report:
CB Carlos Rogers (hamstring), LB Dan Skuta (foot), CB Eric Wright (hamstring), WR Jon Baldwin (illness), LB Navorro Bowman (wrist), CB Tarell Brown (ribs), C Jonathan Goodwin (not injury related), RB Frank Gore (knee), G Mike Iupati (knee), DT Justin Smith (shoulder).


Recap:
It was an odd game, after jumping up 17-0 and dominating the first quarter, the 49ers went to sleep.  Bowman dominated the field, and Dawson - whose field goal streak came to a close early in the game, made two key kicks for the win.  The real question… have the 49ers been playing it close to the vest all season to keep their opponents guessing, or are they really not firing on all cylinders?  We should start to see the truth this weekend in the Wild Card matchup vs Greenbay.  

Game Plan:
OFFENSE:  The 49ers need to dominate the line of scrimmage.  We don’t know if the team will come out running, passing, or with a balanced attack.  They have so far kept the Packers guessing.  The weather lends itself to a heavy ground game, and that could get interesting between Kaepernick, Gore, Hunter, James and Dixon - the 49ers have what it takes to make that type of game interesting.

DEFENSE: The 49ers have a big question at cornerback as Carlos Rogers and Eric Wright are battling hamstring injuries.  The success of this defense will depend on whether the 49ers front can get enough pressure on the Packers that the cornerbacks are not exposed in coverage.  Simple? only on paper.

Key Matchup:
Jim Harbaugh/Greg Roman vs Dom Capers: So far Capers has been a few games behind what the 49ers do on the field against Green Bay.  If the 49ers have the Packers as confused this weekend as in the past three games, this could be a walk-a-way victory.  If not, expect a grudge match with the Packers seeking revenge.

49ers vs The Officials:
Nothing to report


Harbaugh-isms:
“I’m just boiling it down Barney-style for myself. And, we’ll take that approach and see if it works.” -- Harbaugh keeping football simple, especially on the road

Harbaugh vs the Media:
Q: Stylistically, what’s the biggest difference?
A: Stylistically, I don’t know any stylistically.

Quote Of The Week:
“It was a great performance. Spectacular. And, there’s been many since.” -- Harbaguh on Boldin’s week 1 performance
Taking out the trash:
“If we can do what we did the first game and eliminate the run game, and force him to pass, I think we have a better deal going on this time to be able to stop it,” Packers LB Mike Neal said.

In preview of each week’s game, 49ersParadise.com recaps some of the weeks best moments and the key notes you need to know before this week’s #49ers clash.

Opponent: vs Buccaneers
Time (PST): Sunday 1:25 PM PST

Injury Report:
Frank Gore, Joe Staley, Mike Iupati, Dan Skuta, Craig Dahl, Justin Smith, Tarell Brown, Michael Crabtree, Vance McDonald, Mario Manningham, Ray McDonald, Adam Snyder, Aldon Smith

Recap:
In an epic battle, the 49ers toughened up and fought for a victory over the Seahawks.  It took everything the 49ers had to beat Seattle - but the 49ers walked away with victory thanks to Frank Gore’s longest run of the season.  Special Teams highlighted the day with Dawson’s great kicking, some amazing coverage, and a blocked punt.  Kaepernick played good enough, the defense played lights out, and there began the makings of a statement.  This team may come together just in time.

Game Plan:
OFFENSE:  This continues to be quite simple.  Own the line of scrimmage. Get the passing game going.  It should be a unique challenge facing the Bucs who have a pretty good secondary.  I would love to see the Niners test their depth by going to 3 and 4 WRs with some regularity.

DEFENSE:  I suspect the 49ers will play their traditional game.  The Bucs offense is not something to be truly scared of, so the team just needs to play its game and not sit back and wait for the Bucs to take it to the.  On both sides of the ball really, the Niners need to make sure their heads are in the game after a very big game last week.


Key Matchup:
Dashon Goldson will be seeking revenge as he roams the defensive backfield.  Kaepernick needs to be accurate with the ball - something he hasn’t done all that well this season, and the receivers need to protect themselves - especially when going over the middle.  That collision between Vernon Davis and Dashon Goldson we have all been waiting to see? Well, you can bet the two will bang into each other in a big way at some point this week.


49ers vs The Officials:
“It does. That you could benefit from a foul, I don’t think anybody wants that. So, the solution possibly is you treat it like the ball was kicked. Kicking and batting would be the same. It would be a loss of down. But, that’s for the Competition Committee to decide.”  -- Harbaugh on the batting of a ball penalty after a blocked punt


Harbaugh-isms:
"I suppose Abraham Lincoln riding across the field with a frock (coat) and a top hat, riding a horse, waving an American flag -- I doubt that would fire them up if this game doesn't fire them up.” -- Habaugh on how big the 49ers vs Seahawks Rivalry is


Harbaugh vs the Media:
Q: “So, when do you leave for Austin, Texas?”
A:  “Are you trying to be funny?”
Q: “Trying.”

Quote Of The Week:
“He doesn’t need to prepare for press conferences and come up with a routine like Jay Leno. It’s not his job to come out for 15 minutes and do a monologue. He’s got a lot of things to study for his job. That’s what he needs to do – his job.” -- Harbuagh on the way Kaepernick handles the media

Taking out the trash:
“If we make eye contact, I’ll acknowledge him out of respect,” -- Anthony Davis on his for coach who he faces this week.

In preview of each week’s game, 49ersParadise.com recaps some of the weeks best moments and the key notes you need to know before this week’s #49ers clash.

Opponent: vs Seahawks
Time (PST): Sunday 1:25 PM PST

Injury Report:
Navorro Bowman, Justin Smith, Mario Manningham, Frank Gore, Mike Iupati, Quinton Patton, Ahmad Brooks, Aldon Smith, Garrett Celek, Dan Skuta, Tarell Brown, Ray McDonald

Recap:
The 49ers were playing to keep hold of a playoff spot and in doing so they systematically controlled the game.  Even at that there was plenty of room to improve against the Rams.  The run game continued to struggle, and despite some big efforts by Boldin and Davis, there was very little involvement of Crabtree or Manningham.  The defense on the other hand played lights out, and special teams were on fire - with the exception of a muffed punt by LaMichael James.

Game Plan:
OFFENSE: Just like last time, the Niners need to control the line of scrimmage and get the ball to their receivers.  The Hawks do an incredible job of holding receivers and getting away with it.  The 49ers need to finally impose their will on offense. 

DEFENSE:  Containing Russell Wilson and forcing him to make a decision in 3 seconds is key.  The 49ers will rely on their front 4 to get a rush on Wilson and set the edge.  This is far easier said than done, but having the defensive front that the 49ers do, if any team can slow down the Rams it will be the Niners.


Key Matchup:
Michael Crabtree vs the Seahawks defensive backfield.  Earlier in the season the Hawks showed they can control Davis and Boldin.  The 49ers need to get the Hawks to double up one of their receivers, and that means Crabtree has to be so physical off the line the Hawks are left with no choice.  If he can be effective early it should open up the other receiving threats, including Maningham under neath.

49ers vs The Officials:
nothing to report


Harbaugh-isms:
"I suppose Abraham Lincoln riding across the field with a frock (coat) and a top hat, riding a horse, waving an American flag -- I doubt that would fire them up if this game doesn't fire them up.” -- Habaugh on how big the 49ers vs Seahawks Rivalry is


Harbaugh vs the Media:
Normally I reserve this spot for Harbaugh, but Kaepernick’s sparring with the media deserves some attention:
Q: “That was the first smile I’ve seen with all the media around you in a long time. Do you not like this, you’re so guarded it seems. Would you just like to cut loose sometimes and speak more extemporaneously or just let it all fly?”
A: “Well, I signed a contract to play football. The media is just something I have the obligation to do.”

Quote Of The Week:
"We're so excited to have him back. You don't know what you're going to get. Get your popcorn and get ready for the show, because with him there, it's going to be pretty exciting with all the guys that we have.” -- Vernon Davis on the return of Crabtree


Taking out the trash:
"It might be the most intense game this season, because those guys don't like us, and we don't like them," -- Vernon Davis on playing the division rival Seahawks

In preview of each week’s game, 49ersParadise.com recaps some of the weeks best moments and the key notes you need to know before this week’s #49ers clash.

Opponent: vs Rams
Time (PST): Sunday 1 PM PST

Injury Report:
Navorro Bowman, Justin Smith, Mario Manningham, Frank Gore, Mike Iupati, Quinton Patton, Ahmad Brooks, Aldon Smith, Garrett Celek, Dan Skuta, Tarell Brown, Ray McDonald


Recap:
The 49ers were in a must win scenario on Monday night, half a game back of the Arizona Cardinals for the last playoff spot.  They beat a very bad Redskins team, and only looked “ok” doing so.  Kaepernick through for 3 touchdowns, as the 49ers passing attack started to come alive.  The running game was non-existent playing against 8 and 9 fronts just as the prior two weeks.  The 49ers got a lift on special teams from LaMichael James, and Phil Dawson continued to be money as a place kicker.  Finally the defensive front unloaded 6 sacks, 2 each by Aldon Smith, Justin Smith and Ahmad Brooks.


Game Plan:
OFFENSE: Counter punch.  If the Rams are in run protect all game, the 49ers need to let the passing game explode, stretching the field wide and far.  If the Rams try and protect with cover 2, expect Gore to eat them alive.

DEFENSE:  The 49ers will be tested in the middle of the field, both against the run and the pass.  The team must hold its containment while still getting their pass rush on.


Key Matchup:
Michael Crabtree vs the Rams defensive backfield.  Nothing would ignite the 49ers offense more than an early big touchdown pass to Crabtree.  I expect the Rams to be ready for Crabtree to be a big part of the game plan, whether he is or not will remain to be seen.  Crabtree may not even have to catch a pass to loosen up the Rams defense.

49ers vs The Officials:
“When defensive penalties happen, they should review them, it’s a call that goes up in the air.”  - Brooks on the need to review defensive penalties to avoid bad calls like the sack on Brees two weeks ago.


Harbaugh-isms:
"Well, I mean, nobody knows what the rear is right now, as it stands now. But, it's definitely a strong division."  -- Harbaugh on the strength of the NFC West


Harbaugh vs the Media:
Q: “I'm asking this because you have a fair share of adversity this year unlike your first two seasons here, but have you had to invoke Freddy P. Soft this year?”
A: "No. Not that I can recall. The fellas have been preparing great every week. And, that's where it starts. That's where we're at today. And, we're looking for a good day today."


Quote Of The Week:
“Really, getting started early. I recognize when I’m able to make a lot of plays, not just during the week in preparing, but when that game’s starting, feeling what the team’s trying to do. In this league, if something successful happens on one play, they’re going to come back to that play, so you try not to let it happen a second time. Just me playing a full 60 minute game and letting the game come to me.”  - Navorro Bowman on his favorite part of football.

Opponent: vs Redskins
Time (PST): Monday 8:40 PM

Injury Report:
Garrett Celek, Ray McDonald, Dan Skuta, Colin Kaepernick, Mario Manningham, Quinton Dial, Tarell Brown, Mike Iupati, Quinton Patton, Justin Smith, Frank Gore


Recap:
It may have been a penalty away from icing the game, but the 49ers did not deserve to win for the second straight week.  The offense came to a pitter-pattering halt for the second straight week, as the Saints consumed the run by stacking the box and daring Kaepernick to throw.  Receivers were open, and Kaepernick got a bit more protection from his line than last week (though that is not saying much) yet the offense could not capitalize at all.  The 49ers play a woeful but desperate team this week, and if they can’t break out the offense this week, than it may really, really, be time to call for changes.


Game Plan:
OFFENSE: It sounds simple, but score points.  Don’t worry about establishing the run.  Come out and throw the ball.  Spread the offense out so Kaepernick can see the field, and throw the ball.  Can they execute?

DEFENSE:  The 49ers have struggled to stop the run up the middle of the field and have not been able to get to the quarterback.  That is what the team needs to make happen if they want to send a message to the NFL.  


Key Matchup:
Colin Kaepernick vs the Redskins Defense.  1 versus many.  Kaepernick needs to prove to his team and the entire NFL that he can pick a defense apart.  Otherwise the Niners may as well pack it in now.  Even though the turnaround may come against an awful team, the momentum is needed to start righting this ship.


Harbaugh setting up the officials:
Q: Can you maybe elaborate why you think it’s a bad call?
A: “I said it’s the official’s call to make. I’m going to see it with my eyes and I’m explaining that maybe that’s because it’s through my eyes, my perspective, our perspective of this team. So, possibly that could explain.”



Harbaugh-isms:
Q: You went through a similar line of questioning earlier this year with S Donte Whitner with a hit in the end zone. Does it seem like anytime there is a big hit, a violent hit, no matter whether it’s legal or illegal, it’s going to get called at this point in the stage of the NFL?
A: “Well, I mean, this isn’t NASCAR. This isn’t where the drivers and the owners after the game or the race get up there and start throwing punches at each other and questioning every call and everybody’s in everybody’s face heated, etcetera. Or the next day, talking about how the points went. We can’t argue that. And you know that. You know I can’t stand up here and make these comments. So, that’s two different worlds. There’s NASCAR and there’s professional football. So, it’s not our place as coaches to talk about that.”


Harbaugh vs the Media:
Q: “Yesterday, RB Frank Gore mentioned the last two opponents have had good defensive schemes. You kind of alluded to, I think Monday, the last two opponents have attacked you very differently as far as from a defensive standpoint. Is that, with all due respect, have you guys been out-schemed?”
A: "No. I wouldn't say that."

Quote Of The Week:
"This is the most embarrassing call in the NFL since the tuck rule."  -- Ray Lewis on the Brooks hit / penalty versus the Saints.  Lewis also offered to fund have any fine that comes from that hit


Taking out the trash:
“I know Monday night, Washington is going to be pumped, and we’re trying to get back on track to where we want to be, and that’s the playoffs,” -- Frank Gore on trying to right the ship against Washington

In preview of each week’s game, 49ersParadise.com recaps some of the weeks best moments and the key notes you need to know before this week’s #49ers clash.

Opponent: vs Saints
Time (PST): Sunday Nov 17th, 4:25 PST

Injury Report:
Justin Smith, Garrett Celek, Mario Manningham, Quinton Dial, Frank Gore, Tarell Brown, Ray McDonald, Mike Iupati, Bruce Miller, Eric Reid, Andy Lee, Dan Skuta, Vernon Davis, Quinton Patton

Recap:
The 49ers loss to Carolina was scary for a few reasons.  First, it was at home.  Second, it basically eliminated their chance of winning the NFC West.  Third, it revealed a lack of creativity on offense.  Fourth it showed just how easy it can be to get to Kaepernick.  Fifth, the 49ers got banged up.  Really, really, really banged up.  Vernon Davis and Eric Reid are set to return despite two concussions in the past year, but Ray MacDonald is out, Manningham is questionable and there are many others on a growing injury list.

Game Plan:
OFFENSE: The 49ers need to show they can sling the ball, be creative on offense, and still get Frank Gore the touches that he needs to take over a game.  This game is going to come down to controlling the line of scrimmage to allow Kaepernick to do his thing - and that might sound easy on paper, but it really, really is not.
DEFENSE:  The 49ers defense really just needs to keep doing what they have been doing all year.  Really, that means keeping the opposition out of the endzone.  That will be a very difficult task against the Saints who have proven - as recently as last week to have all the firepower they need.  How will the Niners adjust to bringing Aldon Smith back? To playing without Ray Mac? Or to a safety in Eric Reid who may be a bit more timid? 

Key Matchup:
Greg Roman vs the Saints the Defense
The 49ers coaching staff have been able to skirt bye for too long now.  They got an easy pass because they turned this team around… perhaps with some suboptimal situations.  Now is the time that the 49ers coaching staff -specifically Greg Roman needs to prove it can be creative and get the offense rolling up yards and points and dictating the terms of the game.  Is Roman up to that task?

Harbaugh setting up the officials:
Nothing to report

Harbaugh-isms:
"Schemes are ever-evolving. Yes, we've seen new schemes." -- Harbaugh on the changing nature of the Saints

Harbaugh vs the Media:
Q: Not to rake him over the coals, but is that something that a young quarterback is always working on, always improving upon? That seems to be one of the toughest parts about playing quarterback is that something that naturally a young guy has to continue to get better at.
A: “I understand. I understand what you’re doing, what you’re trying to do and glomming onto somebody’s opinion, but I think it’s whatever they think. The main thing is that we’ll look at it and talk about it with our players and see the areas that we can improve. Just dissecting it as a unit, we had too many negative plays in te game, too many negative plays, loss of yardage plays, penalties, sack, turnover, that we’ve got to get better at. We didn’t do a good enough job.
Quote Of The Week:
"We didn't play championship football offensively this week." -- Harbaugh  on the 49ers loss to Carolina

Taking out the trash:
“We’ll be ready,” Gore said in reference to what the Saints may throw the 49ers way.
