Morning Tailgate: Jan. 9

Posted by Taylor Price on January 9, 2013 – 10:36 AM

Patrick Willis’ potential role against the Green Bay Packers has already been discussed at great length this week. But to his credit, the six-time Pro Bowl linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers said he’s eager to carry out whatever responsibilities are asked of him from defensive coordinator Vic Fangio.

If the Packers elect to use four wide receivers at a time in Saturday night’s Divisional Playoff matchup, Willis could very well be on the sideline in the 49ers dime defense in favor of fellow Pro Bowl linebacker, NaVorro Bowman. San Francisco’s “Mike” linebacker, played by Bowman, covers the middle of the field in the 49ers dime defense.

However, the likelihood of the Packers throwing even more against the 49ers isn’t a guarantee. After all, Green Bay has evolved into more of a balanced offense ever since San Francisco opened up the 2012 regular season with a solid, 30-22 road victory at Lambeau Field. Furthermore, wide receiver Jordy Nelson was reportedly missing at Tuesday’s open portion of Green Bay’s practice. Nelson suffered a leg injury in Week 17 and later limped off the field late in Green Bay’s Wild Card win over Minnesota. Both teams will release the first injury reports of the week later today.

It’ll be interesting to see if the Packers test their improved running attack against the 49ers or utilize their numerous playmakers at the wide receiver position. Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com and Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee both examined the possibility of Willis being on the sideline in situational packages against Green Bay.

Regardless of the personnel Green Bay utilizes on Saturday, Willis will surely find ways to impact the game.

Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle discussed Joe Staley’s motivation for a rematch with Clay Matthews and the Packers.

Branch also shared the comments of newly signed Billy Cundiff, who is hopeful about his chances of kicking in Saturday’s game.

Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News looked at the quarterback matchup between Aaron Rodgers and Colin Kaepernick, who both grew up as fans of the 49ers.

Mike Sando of ESPN.com examined the production of tight end Vernon Davis throughout the 2012 regular season.

49ers.com examined Willis’ unselfish comments, shared Packers conference calls and looked at Kaepernick’s eagerness to make his postseason debut.

    i’m not gonna lie here about how i feel about this coming game,i’m a bit tense but then again i should stay positive,i’m hoping that the defense will step up ,playlike theres no tomorrow for, one thing the cowboy (justin) is not gonna be a 100% but his presence is gonna iintemidate a lot of players fr.the opposing team,but i know in my heart that he’ll give everything he got in order to win, offense wise i hope they execute well on there plays, and who ever is kicking, god bless ‘em, cuz those field goals score is gonna be cretical on a playoff games, but one thing for sure is gonna be a slugfest, i hoping that the bye week is to our advantage and were playing home,just get ready who’s ever is going to the stick theres gunna be a lot of cheese around.. but then again in the words of 49erdefense in harbaugh we trust…count on that…..

    someone mentioned why there are always so many other teams fans at our home games, I will explain a reason albeit maybe a small reason as to why. there are people who are season ticket holders who dont live in the area or close enough to go to every home game. they sell those tickets to make a profit, I dont see how that is supporting ” our ” team but that is a matter for another day, but when you make those tickets available to the public other teams fans gobble them up. case in point, the 2 rows behind me the guy moved the oregon 7-8 years ago but kept his season ticket, he sells every game day ticket!!!! and all around the south end zone upper box rows its the same story, they are great seats mind you but really? holding onto a season ticket that you have no intention of using is keeping some other fan who lives around here from being able to experiance the faithful on gameday, there have been tons of the other teams fans behind me all year. someone even posted on here that he lives on the est coast but still owns his season ticket, how many games does he go to? how many times has his tickets been sold to another teams fans? how does not living near the stadium make you less of a fan? ,,,,see what I mean?.

  4. By 49erdefense2012 on Jan 9, 2013 | Reply

    its a small point but straight to the heart it cuts. it bugs me big time knowing that the dude behind me puts his tickets on stub for a profit and doesnt even care if another teams fan buys them. its our house, give those tickets to a 49er fan who will use them.,,,

  5. By 49erdefense2012 on Jan 9, 2013 | Reply

    and yes, I know someone who does the very thing im rageing about, but he will be there on saturday, he uses the tickets if they make the playoffs, how more fair weather can you get then that? he is always boasting about how much he makes on his ticket sales…..and he has been doing that since 1997, selling his seats to the highest bidder on what ever site he uses, showing up only for really big games and his seats ALWAYS seem to be used by the other teams fans.

    yes bow53, we all must ” TRUST IN HARBAUGH ” this game, for no stat now that can be posted will effect the outcome. stats are mis-leading, argumenative, and quite useless. according to the nfl media, statistically we are going to lose to the packers, and you know what, statistically, they are better in alot of offensive catergories, I guess we shouldnt even play the game then right? I mean, the stats say we cant win and stats are always the best way to determine the outcome of a players and teams potenial and ability to win games right?, a bit brash but I think you see my point, you have to play the game, stats be dammned. IN HARBAUGH WE TRUST SF 49ERS DEFENSE 2012

    i agree bow53..slugfeast…they have alot of weapons and i think when the niners r in a 4th and mangable go for it inside the packers 35…cuz kicking fg’s won’t beat the packers..need td’s….and a fg is hard to come by lately…but we stand behind the team and give them all good vibes…..special teams to me is going to be a huge part in this game..they have cobb back and he is good..so the niners have to be ready and it’s time someone step up on punt returns for the niners…field positon field postion…..all i can say….

    the more I hear the more I want sat. to be here already. ball security is paramount this game. I have been to every single home playoff loss to the packers and turn-overs have always been the deciding factor, as like with any other playoff game, but when your there watching it happen its almost heart breaking. I wann se frank gore pound the ball and get 125 trds rushing with 1 td,, and lamichael james get 80 rushing yrds,,keep the ball away from rodgers with run game ball control and work the clock, we score 28- 31 points we should win with that formula. WE NEED OUR DEFENSE TO RETURN TO 2011 FORM. CARLOS RODGERS, DASHON GOLDSON AND DONTE WHITNER NEED TO TAKE THE BALL AWAY….wow,, im already yelling at the tv

    It would be nice to see Frank Gore have a big day; but that means “big” blocking up front and from our FB Bruce Miller. Can’t wait to see the game plan in execution for our offense. Using LaMichael James in ways not seen yet; so many options, wouldn’t you love to be OC for our Niners? Defense, play inspired, play together as one, and play with fire!!! Excellence, energy and endurance . . . it will be a brawl but it’s a game too . . . so enjoy and live in the moment! Niners by 10 . . .

Dave G, you haven’t addressed 11 in days… we just spent all day yesterday arguing about my apparent lack of support for Kap. So to say you weren’t referring to me in your post is either a lie, or bad writing for not then naming who you were speaking of. At any rate, it doesn’t matter as the lot of you are so pathetic with your insults as to be pitied. School bully’s that grew up, got fat and now can only attempt to bully on blogs.

    49ersdefence, I very rarely use stats in my post. I don’t take the time to dig them up, but I’m not afraid of them, as you are when someone does take the time. They are a tool, a form of measurement. they don’t tell the whole story but they are a means of corroboration to a point. Good grief, is there an adult 49ers blog that I can join?

    49ersdefence2012, I’m not sure what you are looking at, but I’ve been on this blog long before late November. I think we had to change our handle because of the new system or something. I think I was just “Temper” before. But once again I’ll say it… you don’t hold any kind of grand poo-ba seniority based on the length of time you’ve been posting. As much as you want to claim some kind of “king of the blog” title, you’re not… you’ll have to live out that fantasy in some other way.

I’ve said a million times, I’m not interested in proving that I’m right about anything… I’m giving my OPINION. Why that makes you so freaking angry is baffling to me. I only pipe up about Alex when someone says something like, “oh, our offense is so much more dynamic now than it was with Alex.” That’s the only time I feel the need to step in and disagree… I’d be happy to move on to other topics, but I will not shy away from a comment like that. If you want to quite with the personal attacks and talk 49ers, I’ll be happy to oblige.

    “I wann se frank gore pound the ball and get 125 trds rushing with 1 td,, and lamichael james get 80 rushing yrds”

    You want to see it, but you most likely won’t see it.

    At 4.7 yards per carry on the season, Gore will have to carry the ball approximately 27 times, and James will have to carry the ball around 17 more times. The 49ers carried the ball 44 times against the Jets in week 4, and they rushed for a total of 245 yards. Of course, that was Mark Sanchez’ Jets, who put up a bagel for the final score. The statistical improbability of the 49ers rushing 44 times for 245 yards is very high because the Packers on a bad day this year were superior to the Jets at their best.

    Where do you come up with random projections like this? Do realize that the 49ers haven’t cracked the 200 total yards rushing mark since Alex Smith was quarterbacking? Do you realize that Gore hasn’t had more than 23 carries in a game this season? Do you realize that James hasn’t had more than 8 carries in a game, nor has he totaled 50 or more yards?

    And as for the Packers’ opponents this year, they’ve never allowed any team to rush more than 37 times in a game. The 49ers rushed 32 times against them in week 1. On average, the Packers held opponents’ offenses to only 26 carries per game. The Packers haven’t given up a 200+ yards rushing performance until now.

    Colin Kaepernick will have to be awesome on Saturday if the 49ers are going to have a chance to sustain drives long enough to rack up 40+ carries. Five turnovers from the Packers wouldn’t hurt, either.

    I’m just saying.

    “unless they rip off some big chunk yardage,,,something your numbers cant determine”

    The Packers’ defense has allowed 63 20+ yards plays during the regular season and were ranked 18th in the league in giving up such plays. They ranked significantly better in the 40+ yards category, tied for 11th in the league, giving up only 9 all season.

    Here it comes…

    Go 49ers.

    “unless they rip off some big chunk yardage,,,something your numbers cant determine”

    One more:

    When the 49ers played against the Packers earlier this year, the Packers’ defense gave up 5 20+ yard plays to Alex Smith’s offense (3 completions and 2 rushes), a better-than-average performance against the Packers’ defense.

    The 49ers’ rushing game has only had 17 rushes go for 20+ yards during the entire season.

    yes, if they rip off some big chunk yardage, something you have to believe in, but since you cant come up with something that is your own, always having to rely on numbers to determine what you are going to say, dont you have the ability to form an opinion of your own? without having to have someone else do your thinking for you? you seem unable or unwilling to post a comment that doesnt include a bunch of numbers that you had to search for. and,furthermore, you call me blog bully and others as well, but what do you do? you CONSTANTLY, degrade, put down, and nitpick other peoples comments that arent even directed at you. there is no difference between the 2 of us with your blog bully label aside from my language. look back at your posts phatal, ANYTIME some posts how they feel about what may happen saturday, you just HAVE to post some numbers trying to prove how wrong someone is for posting how they feel or wish for to happen on saturday,,,ITS NO F,U,C,K,I,N,G WONDER MYSELF AND MANY OTHERS CONSTANTLY ATTACK YOU VERBALLY,,,BLOG BULLY INDEED,,, TRY LOOKING IN THE MIRROR,,, YOU ARE NO DIFFERENT,,,

    I posted something similar to that mfkram just the other day, but yup since the numbers dont favor the 49er s at all, how come phatal doesnt just come out and say the 49rers are going to lose? I mean with his relying on numbers to do his talking for him isnt he saying that the 49ers dont have a chance against the packers, I mean even if alex WAS the qb, with the numbers that phatal has posted and the numbers stacking up against the 49ers the 49ers wouldnt have a chance to beat the packers at all, with alex throwing the ball, isnt that right phatal? , so since you believe your right, and your numbers say that the 49ers cant win, so why dont you just come out and say it?,, I am willing to be you wont do that, dont want people to finally see that your not a fan of the 49ers ,,,right??

    while I dont care for your language 49erdefense, I myself have thought the very same thing about the person who calls themselves phatalerror, I mean, how can you call yourself a fan with all the negative type of numbers posting being done by that person? a 49er fan posts that they want big games from our rb’s and then a comment is posted about well your not going to see it happen? who are they to try and trample on someones hopes for a great game outcome?. do you even stop to think that maybe there is a young kid posting his hopes for saturdays games? and who are you to try and bring everyone down or sway someone from thinking we will have a big game to oh wow look at those numbers against us. like I said, I dont care for the language, but I just as much dont care for continual attempts to try and lessen anything that has been done, what is being done, and what might be done. I know im new to posting here but I have throughout the year have read all the morning tailgates,,,go 49ers

    “how come phatal doesnt just come out and say the 49rers are going to lose?”

    Because I don’t necessarily believe they will lose. However, the trends do suggest that if the 49ers win, it won’t be on the back of their running game.

    Call me a buzzkill, call me pessimistic. I’m just saying there is a distinct chasm between what some fans believe the 49ers are capable of and what the 49ers are actually capable of. My being a fan of the 49ers doesn’t blind me to their flaws. However, you clearly are blind. Wishing that Ted Ginn performs like a top NFL receiver this weekend won’t make it happen. There is about as much chance for the 49ers running game to break 200 yards unless the Packers play their worst game of the year and Kaepernick plays his best game of the year.

    Go 49ers.

    I now understand phatalerror. his way of thinking is to expect the worst, and when the 49ers do better than what he was expecting, he can celebrate with the rest of us. ,,,BUT,,,if they lose, and dont have ” statistically ” a good game, or if their numbers on offense resemble in any way any stat he has posted, he will be able to say ” see, I told you all so..,,,,,so I now understand his way of thinking,,dont really agree with it, but whatever gets you through the day, I guess..

    Phatablahblah: We all know our team is not perfect. For Gods sake who is? You just want to debate because you want to think you are superior. Rooting for a team is to throw all that aside and just root for them with hope & wishing we play above ourselves. Thats the fun and enjoyment of rooting for our team. You must be a miserable person to keep feeling this need try to school us on reality like we living in the clouds. Do you really think we are stupid. We rooting for our team to play above itself and to slap you with reality…you have no control over any of it and neither do us but teh difference is we know that and just want to enjoy rooting for our team and hope we win 100 -0 regardless of whats possible. A miserable person like you will never get that.

    Sorry all, I would love to just join in on the public stoning of Phatal, but I actually like his posts. I think the stats are interesting. It doesn’t mean that I don’t also hope Frank breaks it for 200 yards and Kap throws for 4 TDs… I don’t see how he is being negative. He’s a numbers guy. He’s just stating previous fact. Don’t see anything wrong with that. And he does it without calling anyone derogatory names.

    Temper11~ seems that editing has loosened up. Things got constipated with 11 years & family. Ray-Ray isn’t allowed to yell in the house; usually outside. And yes it is a proven fact that ranting and raving, cursing, etc. are signs of an inferiority complex. seek help. NOW FOOTBALL~ GO NINERS

    “Rooting for a team is to throw all that aside and just root for them with hope & wishing we play above ourselves.”

    I thought you were a 49ers fan, not a Browns fan. Browns fans are the ones that must hope beyond hope that their team will somehow not place last in their division.

    The 49ers are of course better than that. In fact, they were considered a Super Bowl favorite prior to week one and after week one. The 49ers have had ups and downs since then (like any NFL franchise in a sixteen game regular season). With that acknowledged, the 49ers have looked like the pre-week 17 Giants of 2011: Capable of tremendous wins, and vulnerable to the most undignified of defeats.

    Can the 49ers win this weekend? Absolutely. Even with Justin Smi starting and Billy Akers kicking. Even with the no-longer top-ranked rushing game and an inconsistently explosive offense.

    But which incarnation of the 49ers looked more Super Bowl ready? Which one looked more like the 49ers from the eighties and early-nineties that continued year-to-year as a shoe-in for the playoffs? Which incarnation looked balanced in all three phases of the game? Certainly, the version of the 49ers that looked like *those* 49ers needed only to play at their customary level to beat most playoff opponents into the turf. The 49ers are literally one starter away from looking like *those* 49ers, and not *these* 49ers. *These* 49ers look like they do need to play above themselves. That shouldn’t be necessary.

    I’ve already bought my bag of chips, and dad’s got an I.P.A. waiting in the refrigerator for me. The call out for a delivery pizza will complete pre-game preparations. We’ll watch the game together, yell at the TV over bad calls, and high-five on touchdowns scored by the 49ers. There will be no “what ifs” if the 49ers can win this weekend. And the next.

    And, yes, I will be wishing for the 49ers to play above themselves. Because, indeed, they will have to. I’m also enough of a fan to know that it shouldn’t be like that. There are no easy games in the NFL, but I didn’t go into the Saints or Giants games last year with this degree of foreboding.

    Is this Phatalerror for real? The guy cracks me up. Whats with all the copying quotes dude? The funniest thing is you really think you smart but you really just want to argue every point and disect every word like a biochemist investigating on a cellular level. Your arguments are all based on somehow thinking you superior. Extract the stick out of your @ss and just take rooting for your team as just that. I suppose you will copy “extract the stick out of your @ss” next and have an argumentive breakdown on that. HAHAHHAHAHA. I am sure you popular with the ladies. LOL

    In Phatablahblahs relentless pursuit to feel superior he has made one fatal mistake which is quite common with those who are full of feces. HE HAS CONTRADICTED HIMSELF AN INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF TIMES THROUGHOUT ALL HIM RAMBLINGS. Thanks for the laughs Phatablablahblah.

    I did not realize OGRE had a Phd to diagnosis an inferiority complex. Its a proven fact he says….you people kill me how you really are not saying anything but it helps you feel better about yourself. And I am sure it helps you to sleep better at night believing those proven facts in your mind! What a douche!! HA!
