9.21: Matt and Mindi
Matt and Mindi talk through all the latest 49ers topics as they get set to hit the road for a couple of games back east.
Matt can't go I mean you've got you ready to talk about 49ers in the history of their third game of the season against the -- handles their first on the road and went and -- to thank our sponsor. Aside and be here at the premiere in Campbell California -- hours nine and 89 and I and I. You know also game week and weekend hours as well so if I think that He brings to you that. The big news this week for the 49ers Braylon Edwards definitely out for the Cincinnati game probably longer. How much does this team really loose without Braylon. Well I mean I think He is -- best receivers so they lose a lot from that standpoint but. I don't think they feel the need to go out and get another receiver Michael Crabtree was limited in practice Wednesday. They still expect him to be able to play. On Sunday although. We talked to Mike thought maybe it doesn't seem so sure that that's going to be out there but. You know they had three guys on the field. Sunday against the Cowboys and those three guys I think they feel comfortable -- doctor Morgan. Ten game and Kyle way it's always a guy who. When given a chance He -- pretty good player ever and don't forget Delanie Walker -- Davis as well who. For Davis spoke with Jim Harbaugh this week about his frustration after the Dallas game and He said we need to get all of the playmakers. Involved and really the key point for this offense hasn't changed it in Cincinnati still need to get francoeur going they want a 5050 game but it all starts at that point one. In -- and it -- I mean he's a guy on on this now what they need to do is they need to be more of a threat. Throwing the ball to sort of take some of that the pressure off frank. And we also learned this week that Alex Smith. Acting -- and now He went through a full practice I went out. That in there yeah yeah -- -- concussion so maybe that explains why they don't want to put him back in seven step drops and in and let him throw the ball on the field because they want to minimize the number of times He gets it but. If you're gonna open it up I think this is a pretty good week opened up just because of how teams have prepared for the 49ers and deepest Frank Gore. See guys in the box they need to soften -- -- -- and other players that they do lose any game against the angles as well we learned Moran Norris fullback -- They have walking boot on me about it is that you that we have an injury that mean I expect it's some kind of break or fracture how much will that affect the running game. Well ran -- horse didn't play a whole lot and at second half against the Cowboys. I think what it does it it makes the 48 -- shift over to what they do better and that's being too -- in team. And Bruce Miller we'll get some snaps as the second back from fullback. Maybe even -- they have some packages where scores in the backfield along with. Dixon or with Kendall Hunter but I think the 49ers are better team win Delanie Walker's on the field. So I think that's what you're going to be looking at you on one matchups in this game I can do because there are. You look at the Bengals roster there's a lot of guys that we know a lot of recognizable face we'll see key names on. Easily cornerback Nate Clements as well outside linebacker Manny Lawson. And Vernon Davis is speaking to him he's and a man play against him since college very familiar with him and of course Josh Morgan and we also know all of it on a trick. Very sneaky like to go after the ball stripped a ball absolutely. And I think that will work in their -- even though there and you in new defensive scheme 49ers and new offensive scheme and they just kind of know the tendencies they have. I certainly think that helped them. You know that in the one aspect of them Nate Clements and that makes this game interest is. And I think wife plays and why the foreigners should try to push the ball on the field and sequences so good in run support I mean He is He is a dynamite. Quarterback when it comes. Force in the running and tackling guys so I think he's gonna be focused a lot -- sort of nature of -- -- -- doesn't have a big game. But as we've seen from our Nate Clements who's a veteran player. He is susceptible to letting guys get behind him and we sought even week to win the Angels struggle against the Broncos and Eric Decker had a very easy game. I think this plays into the corners hands where. They can test Nicklaus they can use guys like Morgan Guillen and Williams and maybe even Crabtree depending on his health situation -- And maybe exploit Nate Clements and coverage. Have not only that we talked about Vernon Davis Delanie Walker that you tight ends that we've got a lot of Philly deceptively fast as well as Ernie Davis that He this past that I am. So I think he's another deep threat or a matchup threat. Yeah I -- walker is. Very I think he's been under utilized him since he's been in the league he's the guy was wide receiver in college and put on a few pounds to play. Tight end in the NFL and and I like what they did that leniency Cowboys where. There's so much defense and focus on -- on Vernon Davis running that seam route. And what did that leave Delanie Walker whip of one on one matchup of an outside linebacker and is able to -- so. It will be of interest in this evening losses that guy trying to run with playing in the locker. On the field I think that's going to be very interesting to see is if anything these are players that we've got hurt. The past several years and the players intricately and says -- if we get a little more fun. Yes and who would -- game against the Cincinnati Bengals will be fun to watch it. I'm just on Madison commuters are both teams won and when 49ers first game on the road Bengals their first game. At home and our second week here massage yeah absolutely and as -- -- I remember reminds -- October 12 there having a fundraiser. For the Arthritis Foundation. He can make your point and right now. That ten dollars and everybody's eyes thinking that you look at age that certainly factors and age here at the size and be. And that is -- -- -- the citizen and that He reiterated the -- Youngstown Ohio I am -- -- -- out of your out.
