San Fransico has a whole new offense with Colin Kaepernick. Can we figure out what no one else has been able to really effectively do lately and that is how to stop that pistol offense they run. We know we can beat those elite pocket passers, because the last two weeks proves it, but we had trouble with young moble QB's in the past (remember RGIII). Maybe Haloti can deliver a big hit in two weeks :)

At least our defense should be healed up and rested with two weeks off.

Pop in the RG3 tapes, maybe some Mike Vick, and play better than you did in those games!

Upshaw should be huge. He was really good against the read option in college.

WIth 2 weeks to prepare I'm pretty confident we can. We didn't do too bad against RG3 (take away that 1st quarter) if I remember correctly

To be honest it's difficult to stop when guys like Wilson, Kaepernick, and RGIII are running it. I think what could help is if the whole line crashes down in an almost slant like fashion towards the strong side. The obvious problem is it leaves cut back lanes if the line gets overzealous in its crash. In that case the ILB need to be extremely disciplined. But if you can do it in an almost "squeezing" fashion it can bottle up both the QB and HB at the same time because it extends the edge.

Having said that it won't leave much for pass rushing on those downs.

What I remember the most about that game was letting Kirk Cousins throw a TD pass at the end and letting Alfred Morris run for over 100 yards on us.

With no Lewis and Suggs, and even a limited Reed. I like our odds

Has Kap faced another great D since the Seahawks. Kap also screws up under pressure. Oh and btw, that D has not done well against QBs all year

Chicago. St.Louis ' defense has it's bright spots.
He torched Chicago though. The big thing will be putting points.

I think you have a good point, it worked great against the Packers - but their defense is dreadful!

Colin Kaepernick is certainly going to provide a very different test to the ones we've faced in the last 3 weeks. Luck, Manning and Brady are all prototype pocket passers. Kaepernick is a completely different animal.

I have confidence in Dean Pees ability to gameplan and the players ability to execute whatever gameplan he comes up with. Kaepernick's speed is going to be a problem for us I think, but Kaepernick has not faced a defense in the play-offs that has as much savvy and experience as our defense has. We'll find ways to confuse him I'm sure.

Surely Art Jones should be starting? Kemo looked ineffective and the two times I saw Cody he got blown up.

The bigger question just might be, "Can San Fran stop Joe and this offense?" ;)

Does the pistol offense have an answer for the Ravens D when we hit em in the mouth??
