12.15: 49ers Lunch with Matt and Mindi --
Matt and Mindi dissect Thursday's showdown with the Chargers.
Is our weekly segment -- Andy I'm Matt and and -- -- we're we're touring around. Yeah lunch places. Near where the 49ers practice. Specialties cap today it's your first time it's my first time here and now we're going. To San Diego on Thursday. A very diplomatic corner and -- Really didn't like especially with a with a secondary did it again yeah more in the week before and Rogers just destroyed. The second thing though it was a great comeback yeah -- talent. Happy it didn't feel it in the league they've played it it's not a very beginning and you really have to look back on the thinking how to construct. I think you had a. There -- out now they're having -- coach Rivers and yeah. Someone's gonna have to explain how -- Chargers can happen. Total yards down the number walk into the NFL the number one defense and he's definitely an -- In one game out of the AFC west behind the team's name of the 49ers are one game out of the end. Last night's formal matchup. The Chargers can put multi receivers out there it's the 49ers at least five years -- coverage. They don't always get a lot of pressure on the quarterback if they don't pressure on the quarterback. I think Philip Rivers -- just pick him apart and limping into that yet they get Q interceptions from. Behind the course of the season. And the one thing I wanted to ask you -- this year's starting cornerback yeah. You're those are correct -- more the nickel back in. We'll go back -- it's always good. Definitely yeah like you're starting out as a -- depending of course for the intense heat is. -- Nicole I think he works better in tight spaces. I think it does work and he -- that he made a great place Sunday. Covering the guy in the slot. I Camelot Brandon Stokley and then turned and -- for the ball and made -- think yeah I think we're conducting this week. The Chargers have some very difficult and had an accident he's gonna have to get involved I think I think it has to work as. -- I think he's better light headed he's not a walk count shutdown cornerback. I think supporting -- and wanted. Him again winning got in the signing today that big contract -- yeah. Physical corner and he's. He's rated run support and people don't want to hear cornerback great run support and he's entitled Deion Sanders you know he's. He can't blast guys look back at him I'm curious about the other -- yeah Alex Smith coming off a career game it's getting a lot more difficult because -- In the final thinking that they haven't number one ranked defense the one thing I liked about yelling he was my time to -- -- yeah we really don't. I didn't drink that we talked a little bit about his where it's hockey -- -- in the -- yeah yeah. Quarterback in the league in the red -- it's working within twenty yards. If that is the restaurant -- anywhere else we have got into the hands and looking good until it got indicated on the fact that -- You think the reason please -- I think ultimately it's quarterback here is because he's got a I would think now Alex has been around a lot I think you can eat. Take away. He incited the inside part you'll rarely throws outside the numbers and he doesn't want them -- on the field I think it. The target -- a -- -- he's got to make it difficult for him completes. Where it being held on Sunday against. Seahawks didn't -- Josh Morgan. Vernon Davis Brian Westbrook and it also turned -- short we're -- passes. Big games and that's going to be key for them to just. Stadium -- game until the fourth quarter against Chargers and the other kids into the -- to establish them in Atlanta game it looked -- he hockey Brian Westbrook who conveniently he yeah I have an idea what. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- About the night before that yeah that god that doesn't yet -- -- yard career I -- -- Ricky Hatton that you want -- dirty work and yeah I'll call him clicking on the terms they're gonna publish that I mean yeah. The margin of error. Is that is closing dramatically from 2010. 49ers and and I didn't necessarily think they had to go beyond it's easy to get victories. But now I'm thinking that it might they might needing wins. Tight end is that because they played Kansas City that out of yeah. We have right now yeah give -- forty there's loses. -- Diego it's still beat the Rams it's going to be tough game and ended it ended and -- Cardinals. The Rams we'll we'll need to lose one of those other games. So they're going to have to lose at home against a -- and right now they can't. -- always glad that you are gonna win that game now I'm not sure it keeps your kingdom or they would have to go to -- Seattle and lose it's Seattle and went and again you wide receiver they're playing poorly. It's giving up it might come down and reporters obviously kicker business day after Christmas in Saint Louis. If you come down to the final week of the season. Yeah. All right thank all of -- thinking yeah -- game -- 49ers are being hit as badly about that he's. All right we'll check back here next week than others like them manager Manny Ramirez yeah. To -- determined it -- and yeah. It.
