Morning Tailgate: Nov. 6

Posted by Alex Espinoza on November 6, 2012 – 12:00 PM

It’s election day and the voters have an important decision to make. Who has the best defense in the NFL?

President Barack Obama spoke to ESPN’s Chris Berman on Monday Night Football on election eve, and his vote belongs to Chicago. The former Illinois Sen. told Berman that the Bears have to be considered the league’s best following their five-turnover, two-touchdown performance in Sunday’s 51-20 win over the Titans.

Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group did some fact-checking to help you see the strengths of the 49ers, Bears and other top defenses around the NFL.

“The Bears certainly state a strong case as the NFL’s premier defense, behind a turnover-crazed cast led by coach Lovie Smith and defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli,” Inman wrote. “But so do the 49ers, Houston Texans and Pittsburgh Steelers. Don’t forget about last season’s Super Bowl entrants: the champion New York Giants and the Mitt Romney-endorsed New England Patriots. Plus, the Atlanta Falcons remain undefeated, so they should factor into this race.”

Today’s Morning Tailgate also features new faces on the 49ers practice field, the San Francisco Giants and their 49ers counterparts and more.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee noted that the 49ers are hard to beat with extra days of preparation.

Kevin Lynch of the San Francisco Chronicle offered players on the San Francisco Giants and 49ers who have similar playing styles.

Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle handed out his midseason awards to the 49ers.

Inman graded the 49ers through the first half of the 2012 season.

Barrows examined the 49ers and their ability to translate turnovers to wins.

Matt Maiocco forecasted the 2013 salary cap situation for the 49ers in his latest mailbag.

Maiocco, Barrows and Branch reported that rookie running back Jewel Hampton will return to the practice field after recovering from injury.

    he constanly posts his trash, argues that alex sucks in ALL facets of the game, and yet, when presented with actual facts that alex doesnt suck no where near as bad as he argues, he glosses right over said facts as though they dont exsist.
    HE WILL NOT even address his comments from last year. he wont even acknowledge that he said them. phony a$$ fake fan.

    Just ignore that Troll 11 years with Alex. It’s obvious he has no life, and no brain cells left in the pea of a brain in his head. He is probably a Chiefs or a Raiders fan. lol He is just on hear to bug you guys, and its obviously working. This Canadian smells a RAT!!!!!!!!!! Alex Smith is not Steve Young, but he just wins baby!!!!!!! He needs to throw the ball down the field more though.

    see what I maen, the dude is brain dead. I never said alex is the best ever.
    he pays no attention to anything but his own waste. I have said many times that alex at this point of his career that he will never be brees or brady like but he is good enuff to help us win it all. and he still wont admit he was wrong last year about alex smith he is a coward and not a 49er fan

  21. By 11yearswithalex on Nov 6, 2012 | Reply

    oh 1 more thing if this goes through ….this is the niners blog ..other s seem to by shying away with their comments because of the argueing …so olive branch out lets talk team and how the niners can get larry grant more involved the guy is a tiger out there played very well when he took over for willis ….i say give him a shot keep bowman and willis strong for playoffs and sub in grant every now and then or if we are ahead by 2 td’s put him in he will not be a hinderance

  22. By 11yearswithalex on Nov 6, 2012 | Reply

    fine with what ever was said as for everyone it means nothing until the niner win the superbowl and now sooner than later because …the team as we know it wont be together for much longer …freeagency and such

  23. By 49erdefense2012 on Nov 6, 2012 | Reply

    this is what 11years with no brain said last year when the season began
    ” if alex smith leads the 49ers to the playoffs I will be the first to say I was wrong, but I know I wont have to, because I know he wont ” and yet,,,he still posts here and glosses right over the fact that he was wrong about alex, which is way he has this endless hate for alex, he must have lost a ton of money when alex led the 49ers to the nfc championship game.

    for every single post you make I will post 5 more on how your an idiot and know NOTHING anout the game of football

  26. By 49erdefense2012 on Nov 6, 2012 | Reply

    you wont admit you were wrong about alex last year. you wont admit you are wrong about alex this year, and you just said the 49ers are a joke untill they win the super bowl. you OBVIOUSLY havent been around for all the losing years.

  27. By 49erdefense2012 on Nov 6, 2012 | Reply

    most of our key players on this team are signed for the long term know mr. know -it-all. just to prove your as dumb as a rock, why would you want larry grant in there more? guess having the 2 best ILB on the field at the same time makes you feel pity for the other team so you want the 49ers to let them win huh?

  28. By 49erdefense2012 on Nov 6, 2012 | Reply

    you see no brain, you dont know what the hell your talking about. if you would just
    a: go away
    b: admit you were wrong about alex last year and give him some credit for what he has done since the arival of harbaugh, or
    c:talk about something other than alex smith
    this blog just might return to all around football talk, but untill you do one of the three above suggestions, I will not stop attacking your filth,, you infect our blog site with it. and no one likes it

    I was watching the Eagles/Saints game last night and my 14 year old son was sitting there watching with me when 2 unblocked eagles tagged Vick before he was even able to turn around from a fake handoff up the middle. Literally he was crushed by his second step off the snap and fumbled the ball. My son’s reaction to that was “Micheal Vick sucks!” After all the years that I’ve been trying to get him to see past the QB, to see the missed blocks, tight coverage, etc etc., his first reaction was to blame vick for absolutely pathetic protection up front. I was stunned and saddened. There is so much more to football than the QB position and it is getting lost. Are video games to blame? I don’t know, maybe. But it is sad.

    Hey 11yrs, if you have actually watched some of the games this year u would have noticed that Lagrange has been in when we up in the game matter of fact darn near the whole 2nd string defense has been in and playing while resting multiple players

  32. By 11yearswithalex on Nov 6, 2012 | Reply

    like i said earlier and always alex has issues that will keep the niners from winning anything but division ….and that is not enough and yes i put that the niners are a joke forgot to put in the league ….sure the broadcasters say stuff they are paid to say …the niners will get no credit …till they win a superbowl right now they are a team that can not get it done …and i want the niners to win so bad ad yet …they win blowouts and division games and besides the greenbay game wich harbaugh had forever to get ready for and kudos we set the packers back a few games with that loss …..we then lost to the vikings and badly ….then the giants after 2 blowout games …until we stand and beat those teams then and only then will we be able to make a superbowl run …i dont wantthe niners to go to the superbowl, and lose we are 5-0 and nobody has it better than that …..with the defense and special teams we got the offense has to score points fast and furious so the defense can then lean on em and then the special teams can smack em so the offense can then bury them …..that is how i would like it to go just an opinion and that is all ..just as i dont have to like yours and you do not have to like mine it is all banter and blah blah till we see what happens
