  1. Redskins' strength on defense is definitely its defensive line, but that's about it. Jimmy will still need to get the ball out quickly and accurately to slow down the pass rush, but even so, the pass rush is below league average in sacks. I think this is the week the 49ers get their run game back on track. The Redskins are giving up about 135 yards a game at 4.2 yards per attempt. They've also given up the 5th most rushing yards in the NFL so far. All 3 backs should be getting their chances to break a big one in this game. As for their passing defense, their corners are awful and should be exploited on a regular basis when throwing the ball is needed. They give up a ton of completions and have given up the 10th most passing yards in the NFL. The 49ers should be moving the ball at will on almost every drive this weekend. Self-inflicted mistakes will be their biggest challenge on offense. As for the Redskins offense, they want and will run the ball a ton this weekend. Of the 49ers' rushing defense and passing defense, the rushing defense is worse, but we're still talking about being 6th in the league in stopping the run as opposed to be 1st in stopping the pass. The 49ers' should be able to force the Redskins into high-pressure, low-percentage down and distances, which will force Keenum to beat the 49ers with his arm. That plays perfectly into the strength of the 49ers' defense. 32-10 win prediction for me. The Panthers' pass rush is going to give the 49ers their biggest test of the season as the Panthers' defense, especially their pass rush, is no joke. But, there is some optimism that Staley will be back for this game. That takes Brunskill off the field and puts Skule in at RT.
  2. Is this possible? I don't feel like it is lately.

    Hard pass on this for me with the bolded above being the reason why. Why would we trade picks for a below-average QB when we have a pretty decent back who knows the system and is dirt cheap. Mullens is actually an ERFA, which means he either signs a cheap deal with us this offseason or he's out of football - no middle ground there. 2021 he's an RFA, which is still a very team-friendly deal. 2022, he will be a UFA, which he has the right to go out and find somewhere to start if that's what he wants. Rosen's rookie deal expires in 2022 as well. There just isn't value here that I can see. TL;DR: No need to invest assets for a more expensive QB when we have the cheaper (maybe better?) option already in house under control for the same amount of time.

    Ohh, gotcha. I thought maybe there were rumors floating around. I wouldn't give up a second for him. His value is going to decrease each season from here on out, so giving up a premium pick for him doesn't make sense to me. I'd give up a 2020 4th and a conditional 2021 pick that could go as high as a 5th or low as a 7th based on time on the field.

    Is this your opinion, or did you see this somewhere?
  6. Week 6 GDT - Los Angeles Rams vs San Francisco 49ers

    So we carry 4 RBs plus a FB on the active gameday roster? That's a little too much for me. Especially when we're paper-thin at tackle.

    According to FiveThirtyEight, this is where the Niners stand after beating the Rams: Projected Record: 12-4 (1st in NFC, 2nd in NFL) Projected Point Differential: +132 (1st in NFC, 2nd in NFL) Chance of Making the Playoffs: 83% (2nd in NFC, 3rd in NFL) Chance of Winning the Division: 59% (1st in NFC West, 6th in NFL) Chance of a 1st-Round Bye: 47% (2nd in NFC, 3rd in NFL) Chance of Winning the Super Bowl: 9% (2nd in NFC, 3rd in NFL)
  8. Week 6 GDT - Los Angeles Rams vs San Francisco 49ers

    Jimmy G lead him on the pass and put it where it needed to be. Not sure if Coleman expected to be hit right then and there when he turned to face Jimmy, but Jimmy was expecting him to keep going into a wide-open endzone.
  9. Week 6 GDT - Los Angeles Rams vs San Francisco 49ers

    The ball hit him in the hands and bounced off. He did over stride a bit and looked a bit awkward, but regardless, it hit him in the hands and he needed to catch it.
  10. Week 6 GDT - Los Angeles Rams vs San Francisco 49ers

    These are my points from before the game and my reaction post-game. Some additional points not covered in my older post: Arik Armstead is turning into an elite D-lineman. I can't call him a DT because he's getting pressure from the edge as well. He's making smart plays, but he's also bull-rushing his way through guys. I'm really enjoying his ascension this season. This defense is making QB's look like poop on a weekly basis. This is for real and they have a legit chance of being the #1 or #2 defense in all of football. HUGE credit to Saleh. He's really made me do a 180 on my impression of him. I love his fire on the sidelines. I think players are responding to it really well.
  11. That seriously made me laugh out loud. I didn’t hear that when we were recording, but now I will always hear it.

    This dude is balling out this year!

    You're definitely right, Kwon looks fluid and confident. He's been worth the contract so far, IMO.
  14. Week 6 GDT - Los Angeles Rams vs San Francisco 49ers

    Didn't Bowman tear just about everything in his knee? I don't think it was just the ACL. For McKinnon, I'm wondering if something got botched in the procedure or his body just isn't responding well to the recovery. Something abnormal is going on with McKinnon's knee.

    They both can cover and hit hard. I'm sure it makes some receivers think a little when crossing the middle of the field.
