    -Can they run the football when the other team knows what is coming? Yes
    -Can they stop the run without the need of extra men in the box? Yes
    -Can they generate a rush with their front 4, without the need of the blitz? Yes
    -Do they beat themselves with self inflicted penalties? No
    -Do they have a reliable money FG kicker? Yes
    -Do they consistently win the turnover battle? Their QB must prove that, so far they survive his mistakes.

    I think me and so others have underestimated how good the 49ers actually are. They are probably the hottest team in football and just beat 2 division winners, one being the SB favorite in the Packers. Just like the Cowboys, the Packers weakness was exposed in the playoffs, their undoing was their poor Special Teams.

    They really are starting to resemble that Giant Team, with a good run game and a stout defensive line that nobody can block.

    They won 13 games in 2019 and were a TD throw from winning the Super Bowl so it's not like they don't have the talent/coaching. Garoppolo will have to win them a game at some point though

    Not me.

    I said they were an awful matchup for us and we would’ve been better off playing the Cardinals.

    A lot of you were happy about the matchup though.

    Maybe if we didn’t have winners mentality against the Eagles and we played our backups we’d have played a different team in round 1.

    Our Achilles heal all year was penalties and run defense to an extent. In the playoffs the penalties killed us. The packers Achilles heal this year was special teams- it killed them today. Your flaws get exposed in the playoffs if you don’t play a perfect game even if you have a great quarterback.

    cowboys need to run the ball, protect dak, pressure the other quarterback and limit the penalties. That’s the recipe. You can win with dak or at least go on deep playoff runs but ONLY if you can run, rush the passer and block your QB

    49ers are like the Tennessee Titans that made a run to title game couple years ago, qb play will catch up to them.

    I would put our rushing offense on that list as a weakness for this year's team.

    for sure. Def after the 1st 7 games or so. Good point. Really comes down to the o line play. If you protect your qb then usually you can also make lanes for your running back

    That's MM......pretty sure a peek at his Packer stats will prove he's never had a strong rushing team. Then again, why would he if Roger's your QB.

    The 9ers can be the Manning type Giants team. Pass rush, special teams and running game clicking. QB playing well enough to win.

    Sad thing is...it will reinforce the Jones family mantra of just get into "the tournament" and anything can happen.

    I was actually happy that we matched up with them rather than the Cards or the Rams. Now I wish the opposite had happenned.

    That is really what they have been doing. Playing in the required way. Not Jerry Jones type of football, though.

    Jimmy G is adequate, but if gets to an onslaught like the Rams can do, he'll be in trouble...

    I think your post is the most spot-on so far in this thread. Thank you.

    I think the 49ers have beaten the Rams the last 8 times, they aren't afraid of them.

    Even with Pollard, we couldn't run with any consistency, if we did, we beat ourselves with penalties.

    The like of Rodgers/Brees are hall of fame players but yet each has been to just 1 SB. Just shows the greatness of Brady, who very well may return again this season.

    agree mostly. They aren’t that talented,…Deebo and Skittles are their only offensive players and they aren’t exactly terrifying. Jimmy G is a huge liability. Armstead and Bosa are good but meh everywhere else. Their strength is their unity, which may be better exactly bc they know they don’t have a ton of talent to rely on so they stay on their assignments. Honestly, they reek of a Bellicheat-coached team minus the GOAT. They are well coached and disciplined…
