- Reaction score
Let me rephrase. We had most of our front 7 in the game, which is where the run defense is based on. Diggs and Kearse don't factor as much into this. If they are the ones having to make the tackles, then the front 7 did not do their jobs. We will see if Parsons makes a huge difference against SF's run game.
Defense bailed us out against the poor teams, which will not be in the playoffs. They made absolutely no plays against the Raiders and Cardinals when we needed them, too. If one of those were a win, we could be the 2 seed.
The blueprint will be to score and make a few stops and making SF play from behind with Jimmy G having to make plays. He will absolutely give you some chances for turnovers when he has to do this.
Gallimore will make a difference as well. Yes I think Parsons is a huge difference maker and I would also think Kearse makes a difference being a big, physical safety.
