49ers-Eagles Kickoff Pushed Back to 1:15 PM PT

Posted by Scott Kegley on December 19, 2009 – 11:16 AM

The kickoff time for this Sunday’s San Francisco 49ers at Philadelphia Eagles game at Lincoln Financial Field has been moved to 1:15 PM PT from 10:00 AM PT due to the threat of a major snowstorm in Philadelphia.

In anticipation of the storm and as a public safety concern, the change was made to accommodate fans and allow more time for city and stadium personnel to clear streets and walkways in and around the stadium.

The game will be televised on FOX as originally scheduled.

    My Niners are going to the playoffs for my 49th. I’m counting on it! Red & Gold for life baby!

    If there’s a storm it will come down to which team can run the the ball offensively and stop the run on the other side of the ball. If that’s the case, the 49ers will have a bit of an edge because we have a much better running game, but mostly because our run defense is better than their running game! And on the road, we need any edge we can get, especially against a team like the Eagles.

    Very, very relieved kickoff time was pushed. I live here on the East Coast and I got tickets for this back in August. This is the first 49ers/Eagles visit for us in a couple years. I live about 1.5 hour away from Philly… so I’ve been nervous about travel this whole week. It’s 3:45pm, there’s sbout six inches of snow right now, and no signs of this storm stopping til midnight. Needless to say, thank you NFL for this game time change. Great news.

    GO NINERS!

    If it is on FOX then I probably won’t see the game. I live in the LA area and all I’ve seen is East coast teams this year. I’m boycotting FOX until they stop showing an east bias just like ESPN.

    C’mon whoever is calling the offensive plays good clock management. The guys on the team can only be held accountable for so long. I know you can do it great game against the Cardinals do it again. Defensive coordinator put the pressure on them force turnovers and rushed throws. The defense is the backbone of the team but they can only hold so long before the teams back breaks

Should be in first not even having to worry about a wild card.

    i would like to see the 49ers throwing it down deep like 50 yards maybe do a better job of faking when throwing a screen

    i think Alex smith is a good QB just needs to throw more and get more experience

    Vernon Davis is BEAST

    frank gore is not that good a juking because he can run through them

    PLEASE BEAT THEM you can

    OK….. I know Niners can beat the eagles…

    First off, we have the defense to stop them. If you can stop Fitz and Boldin. We can sure as hell stop the eagles. All we need to do is get Mcnabb on his @**. Then we have to score. There defense isn’t as tough as before. Dawkins is no longer there so Gore should have an okay day. But no matter how it ends, we need this game. We have all the weapons. Our team is better then our record. We don’t deserve 6-7. We should be a at least be 9-4. We just had some close losses. So lets go Niners.

    We’ve still got about the same chances before the Cowboys killed the Saint. We’ve got essentially two ways to make it:

    1. Both Cowboys and Eagles have to lose most of their games for last three, or

    2. AZ loses at least two of their next three and we will all three remaining

    The big game is today for the 49ers vs Eagles. If we win this today and Cardinals lose this morning, my hopes will then jump quite a bit. Until that, I’m a bit pessimistic.

  72. By Ed McC on Dec 20, 2009 | Reply

    Pushing the game back is an advantage for the 9ners. West Coast team’s generally have slow starts playing on the East Coast (at least the 9ners anyway) due to the 3 hour time difference. It must be that body clock or jet lag, but it is a fact. None the less should be a good game fella’s! The weather shouldn’t be a factor, it’s football! 9ers need to play sound fundamental game period. From tackling, to protecting the ball, just straight hit you in the mouth so your mama feels it football. Knock #5 down even after he gets rid of the ball, don’t get too excited when #7 comes into the game, should give you an idea of what they’re going to do. Keep D Jac in front of you, he lives in the middle of the field, in that soft zone and isn’t scared to take a hit, so give it to him. Safeties don’t get over vealous, keep the over the top help, two man concept, one hits and wraps, the other tackles the ball. Offense, one word “Block” the rest will fall into place! We should come out winners guys. Losing is not an option…

If we play like we did at the stick on monday nite we be just fine. but the energy at the stick was awesome it almost felt like post season play . we need this win and need cards to lose so GO Niners and Go Lions

  75. By 49marc on Dec 20, 2009 | Reply

    Its good the game was delayed. It will really help us win the game by giving us more time to adjust to the different time zone. I have noticed the niners dont play well on the road in early games.

    We will win this game if we play like the way we did against the cards.

    If we are going to throw the ball, Alex really needs to learn how to pump fake to avoid block passes and throw off defense–that is one thing the cards had our number on.

    Gore will be dominant.

    Come on niners, lets go!

    Lets give the eagles pain they never felt before.

    49ers!

    What’s up with the niners?! I’m very disappointed this year, they have the talent and potential, but are unable to get anywhere. When are they going to realize alex smith should not be our quarterback?! He’s a waste of time. I’m not saying to play shaun hill or any other back up quarterback. What I’m saying is open your eyes and draft a new one. This year should’ve been ours, but since we have no leader, no quarterback it slipped out of our hands.

    i’ve been a fan since 79′ and it seems like the past 3 years the niners seem like they haven’t put any effort into winning. the desire to win isn’t even there anymore.

    we need an offensive right takle a kick returner/punt returner starting pass rushing defensive end and a strong safety one that can cover its good to have guys that can hit but if their not smart and disciplined then they cant play a mental game.
