Third paragraph, first sentence.

That says it all.

If our D can get to him he want be able to put up anything. Pre-season was just that but just like if you ever have had someone beat your a$$ really good, it sticks in your mind and if you see them again your wary of them. We are in his head and he will make mental errors. The way he got beat up in pre-season he has every right to be scared.

He's right though, if Gore gets going like Steven Jackson Smith could throw well under 200 yds and prevail. I have a feeling though GW is going to try and force Smith to throw the ball more and make him attempt something he has not had to produce all season.

I couldn't agree more. It will all boil down to how much pressure out D can put on Smith. Key will be for us to get ahead and make the 9ers abandon the run early. If we can get up by 14 points in the first half this will expose the weakness of their offense, the passing game. In their three losses Smith was sacked 20 times.

I agree. But I disagree in that we really don't need to get ahead by much, to make them one dimensional and abandon the run...our D has made people abandon the run before, because it simply wasn't working for them. Shutting down Chris Johnson against the Titans (low scoring game) and AP in the Vikings 2010 opener is another classic example. AP just simply wasn't getting anywhere with it so Chilly had to make Favre throw the ball in the second half. Even though the score was still pretty close.

This is great because Alex Smith is going let his hubris get in the way of his game plan. He'll get picked off multiple times. Ha ha ha.

I don't have a problem with Alex's comments. Winning matters more than any stat line. I would be stoked if Smith threw for 400 and Brees threw for 150 and we won.

This is where the latest 49er fan arguments stem from... "this isn't Fantasy Football"... I have some news for you, Bress on company throw all over the field and SCORE at will. 49ers think they're gonna just stop us from scoring. They better sneak 12 players on the field in the red zone.

My favorite part of the article:
It’s a good thing Smith doesn’t care because Smith doesn’t have a prayer of putting up the kinds of numbers that Brees puts up.

In the 70 games Smith has played in he's thrown 2 300 yard games, and when I say 300 I mean nowhere close to 400. He's not going to throw 400 yds. He's not that kind of QB for one and he doesn't have those type of receivers. Besides, they aren't even healthy. I think Crabtree is the only one that is healthy.
