This late in the season, those off days are probably more beneficial than detrimental...especially to an elite player like Sherm. I am hopeful Mr. Allen has him cruising in the comfort of our owner's private plane. At least on the way to NYC. Should he lose his appeal and the suspension be imposed immediately, I hope when he returns to the airport, with no plane in sight, the gate attendant hands him a sandwich and a road map.
Harbaugh has a tendency to out-think himself from tme to time. Knowing we are thin at the corner, he may decide to rely more on the pass than run. The way SF's Oline gashed us last time, that might actually serve us better. I am counting on short passes to set up ML, keeing our D fresh and the ball out of SF's hands. That is the strategy that made SF a dynasty wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy back when. Minus Jerry (the prick) Rice, we have the necessary components to do so.
