2012 49ers Gameday Thread: Week 15: 49ers at Patriots
 
Since no one has posted this and its 22 hours away from kickoff, I figured what the hell, mine as well create a topic for this week's matchup.

While most expect the Patriots to win, I think that there's a good chance the 49ers upset the Patriots in Foxboro. Patriots offense has been outstanding but they arent invincible. 49ers defense will hold the Patriots offense to under 21 points while our offense will shock everyone with Randy Moss exploding for at least 2 td as he gets revenge on Belichick and the Patriots. Kaepernick rebounds with a solid 3 td performance (2 passing and 1 rushing) as he'll get his first 300 yard passing performance. While he'll get sacked a few times, no turnovers for Kaepernick or for the offense in general. Gore will go over 100 yards and outshine Ridley while James will break off a few big runs out of the backfield and on returns. Akers will rebound with two 40+ yard fgs and a easy chipshot that puts the game away late 4th quarter.

Defensively, no Gronkowski to worry about and as long as Rogers isnt covering Welker, the defense will hold them to under 21 points and intercept Brady twice in the game. Once early and one late to seal the game with kneeldowns. That's right, 49ers shock the world and all the Patriots fans who think that they're the best by beating them in their stadium by double digits.

49ers 30
Patriots 20

I love the optimism, Dan, but I think Belichick will have a plan in place to confuse and contain Kaepernick. We need to win with defense and field position, IMO. Getting the lead early would help too, of course.

If Kaep struggles in the 1st half, I'm interested in seeing what kind of 2nd half adjustments Harbaugh will come up with.

I want to beat the Patriots so bad, but I see it being New England 24 San Francisco 17 when all is said and done. I expect Welker to be the annoying little **** he always is and to have a big game.

I feel dirty now. Time to go take a shower. Go niners!!!

dan77733 12-15-2012 11:04 PM

Everyone is thinking the same thing as you...us winning with the defense and field position. Since everyone is expecting that, im going with the opposite. :)

abaddon41_80 12-16-2012 07:46 AM

Patriots defense has been playing much better as of late and the 49ers offense hasn't. I think the 49ers can slow down the Patriots offense but not enough.

27-17 Patriots.

Ness 12-16-2012 07:51 AM

I'd like to have Alex Smith going into this game. I just have a feeling Kaepernick's inexperience will show and he'll throw three interceptions or something.

49erNation85 12-16-2012 11:12 AM

Yea sadly I just don't feel us beating the Pats.Though I would love us too Kaep at Qb tonight is gonna hurt us in some way maybe not , hoping hes had enough time and will keep his cool and shine tonight.I also hope that Jim Leaves the Pistol formation set at home and DOES NOT USE IT!!If he does it is gonna hurt tonight. Just pound and pound the ball with Gore use a little PA and deep passes to Davis and its all good. I doubt Moss scores 2 td passes that is just me. He hasn't been an impact receiver for us this year and it blows but oh well. I hope to watch James and Jenkins . I hope they play well to stay on the team.

Patriots defense is playing better but their entire team isnt invincible. They can be beat and the 49ers are a tough physical team. I think that we definitely have a great chance to win.

WOW!!! After years of bashing Smith, you rather have him at QB now instead of Kaepernick. I'm shocked. Either way, Smith is done. Maiocco himself said that there's no way Smith will play again this season unless Kaepernick gets injured. He also said that Harbaugh and company are expecting Kaepernick to eventually have that "stinker" of a game but are hoping its within the next three games instead of the playoffs. The main thing is that Harbaugh is thinking ahead and long term. He's getting Kaepernick the experience he needs in order to get better. You cant get actual game experience by sitting on the bench and since the Kaepernick IS now our franchise QB, Harbaugh is going to ride it out with him, good or bad.

I agree with you in regards to that Pistol formation as I hate it too. Reason I picked Moss to have a big game is because its time for him to breakout this season and no better time than tonight. Also, Manningham is OUT, Williams is on IR and after Crabtree and Moss, all we have is rookie WR A.J. Jenkins and Ginn. Ginn sucks as a receiver and im not expecting anything from Jenkins. I'm expecting a lot more for James because he's basically a Hunter clone.

Regardless of what happens, im pumped for tonight and next Sunday night. Two huge games for this team and no matter what happens this season, im excited for future seasons sonce we finally have a QB who can throw deep down field and make bigger plays with his arm and legs. :)

Sticking with my prediction -

49ers 30
Patriots 20

We usually come out inspired when people doubt us and especially in prime time. We won't roll over unless we just turn it over.

Should be a good one and a potential SB preview.

49erNation85 12-16-2012 02:27 PM

As I said befores just leave the pistol formation back i Sf and we are all good. lets hope Kaep bad game isn't tonight or the rest of the season.

Kaepernick has just had two stinkers in a row LOL. Actually, he hasn't looked lights out since the game against the Bears when he was responsible for putting up the majority of the points. We'll see what happens tonight. If he plays well fantastic, if he doesn't I will say "I told you so".

San Francisco might not roll over, but they might not win the game either. That's what I'm afraid of.

Borat 12-16-2012 06:57 PM

Let's do dis.

Ness 12-16-2012 06:59 PM

We haven't played Brady for eight years. We'll see how it do.

Borat 12-16-2012 07:30 PM

We gon do wat we do.

49erNation85 12-16-2012 09:13 PM

Awesome first half so far by the defense and the only thing keeping us in the game and the lead is the stellar defense . Also Kaep is having a great game.Some bad passing but miss passes other then the two miss snaps are also a killer.Gotta work on that next!!

dan77733 12-16-2012 09:15 PM

17-3 49ers baby!!!

Should be more since we were screwed on the Walker fumble. Of course, possibly getting saved from Ginn's screwup, I guess it evens out.

Kaepernick playing better than expected with 2 tds. Just stay in the shotgun so him and Goodwin cant screwup the snap and we should be good.

Hopefully, we can have a long scoring drive to start the 3rd and put this game away. :)

farfromforgotten 12-16-2012 09:22 PM

Going up by 3 scores would be so nice.

abaddon41_80 12-16-2012 09:28 PM

First half went a lot better than I expected, especially on defense

49erNation85 12-16-2012 09:42 PM

We just got another Fumble/INT!! Where was this defense against the Rams twice!

abaddon41_80 12-16-2012 09:45 PM

The defense played great in the second game against the Rams, actually. Tonight they are playing fantastic.

Borat 12-16-2012 09:46 PM
