Keep him in the pocket. Bring weird blitzes he's never seen before. Get in his face, knock down passes, and force him to make a mistake.

make the entire team one dimensional. we shut down the run including his runs he will have to try to shoot it out with Joe and there is no way he is going to win a shoot out . this pistol offense is exciting to watch but bottom line you take away one aspect of a teams game plan and you have a very good chance to win the game .

SET THE EDGE! That's the first thing you need to do. They will churn out yards, it's inevitable. The key will be in the Red Zone. We need to be able to keep them to field goals. It's not going to be easy but it's not supposed to be

Pees should watch the Packers divisional game . Their blitzes have caused Kaep to run for 181 yards. We need to be very smart with our blitzes. Hopefully, Pees can figure something out. If we can't stop him, we're toast because the 9ers are going to take away our passing game in the middle. Their linebackers are probably the best. This will be very interesting. 5 more sleeps... :D

Setting the edge is obviously important, but keeping him in 3rd and long is crucial. Inevitably, it's all going to come down to us stopping the running game, not necessarily stopping Kaepernick. If he's facing 3rd and 5 all game long, he won't necessarily be able to flee the pocket against a blitz.

I think we should honestly play it somewhat similar to NE. Only blitzing on 3rd and long, and keeping the LBs in the middle of the field to stop the run and create smaller passing windows. Kaepernick doesn't like to throw outside the numbers much, he likes to attack the middle of the field. I think we should crowd that. As average as our secondary has been in coverage, I think we can contain man to man coverage on SFs outside WRs for most of the game. Crabtree is the only guy I see who can create any sort of separation.

5 db set, mix 3 and 4 man rushes, no heavy blitzes, have STRONG gap discipline, spy kaepernick with crushboy pollard, if kaep decides to take off a few times, he'll regret it, and eventually he won't run anymore, ask rg3 and andrew luck what happens when qb's run on us. gap discipline and smart play by our lb's and our safeties in the box will keep frank gore limited to maybe 2-3 yards per carry, but without sound fundamentals in tackling, then he will average MUCH more. our defense can stop kaep, and while dean pees doesnt always look like a genius, he is a very smart coordinator and knows how to stop unique types of offense

@Berkely Raven - don't you worry, #20 is definitely going to make Kaep make a mistake, may be late in the game but he will bait him and he will have a pick this game!!!

As far as how you slow Kaep, Ngata up the middle body slam!!!!But seriously, do not over persue to where you are playing undisciplined football, everybody do their job and the defense will take care of their end of the deal!!!

I think Tyrod is the perfect guy to run the scout team. He fast, elusive, and can run the pistol. That might be a key to how we stop him.

Oh I forgot - here's how you stop Kaep...............#55, #52, #92, #99, #59, #20, #31, #24, #29, #97, #91, #62, #90....#5, #27, #88, #81, #12, #30, #44, #84...

Basically he stops when he plays the RAVENS!!!!! The biggest thing that wasn't working against Philly or Redskins was Cam's offense. Do what you've been doing these past 3 games and we win, anything less and it will be a long game!!!

"Kaepernick has taken the league by storm ..." Exactly. I like it, and here's why:

Before we took on Manning, he was unstoppable. After we took him out, it was ... oh, he's a choker in the playoffs and can't play in the cold.

Before we took on Brady, their offense was a "machine" and was unstoppable. After we took him out, it was ... oh Brady's gotten soft and the Pats just don't have the fire they once had to win.

Before we take on Kap, it is ... he's different than these guys because they just don't have the tools that Kap has.

So, what will it be when we take him out? My guess is, "he just didn't have the experience needed to win it all."

think they picked the right man in Dixon. He has been running scout team. Has the size and speed plus ran nothing but the read option when at Oregon so he knows it very well.

I don't know if you necessarily "stop" this guy. I think you contain him, confuse him and force him to make mistakes. Hopefully we'll exploit his inexperience and throw him off. If so, he's bound to throw a few picks.

Don't give him a chance to his trademarked "bicep kiss".

What an idiot!

Hey, McPhee...Kappy throws low, too. So keep those hands up. ;)

As if you didn't already know that.

[/quote] Spot on, man. Nothing but excuses from these band wagoning losers.

But I don't care. As long as we win, they can come up with whatever they want.

We better be figuring out how to stop the media from spreading BS stories of Ray Lewis doping to speed up his recovery. This is ridiculous!!!! All week long it has been Ray Lewis the murderer, now we have to hear he is a cheater because of deer antler velvet. Come on already people, let the man retire on top already. Stop the HATE!!!!!!!!!

He has not made to many rookie mistakes. This will be the game where he makes a few bad throws with Reed lurking that will cost them the game. Ravens win 24-20!

I have faith in Dean Pees. I think considering he was a first year guy and with all the injuries the Ravens defense has had this year we didn't do as bad as some act like we did. Our defense was bent a lot, but in most games we weren't broke. That was why even as bad as we looked at times we still held our own in the red zone.

I think Ray Lewis is right as far as Kaepernick being like Cunningham. I think RGIII is in the mold also. They both seem to look for the pass first and other options to the run most of the time before they run. Unfortunately for RGIII like Cunningham his knee paid the price.

The way to beat him is more traditional than a lot of teams realize. Defenses need to keep their lanes and containment, disrupt timing and routes of receivers and hope a 3 or 4 man rush can get to him mixed in with the occasional rush from the outside on the weak side chasing him to the strong side holding its contain.

Better yet, our offense having ball control and keeping them off the field. Making every possession count on the scoreboard and off the clock.

Correct the things that we didn%u2019t do very well in both of those games? What do you mean? Like have all of our guys? And, have all of our guys healthy? I, for one, am not concerned. Go Ravens!!! :)

@10000 Watts, you nailed it for me. We now have a complete and healthy defense (well, minus Webb) , which we did not have for either of those other comparable games. Even without Webb at this point, Corey Graham has stepped up great for him.
