I am hoping that there is an answer to those quick up the middle runs that Gore has hurt us with in the past. It seemed like we had the niners bottled up and then WHAM, Gore up the middle for big gains.

I dont think they can stop that, just limit it. Tackling at first contact. Which is way easier said then done.

True, second level tackling has to be on point, putting a hat on him is sometimes not enough, wrap him up ...

I'm not too worried though, we have speed and we'll be hungry, bringing the wood baby !!!

I'm sorry, but we just can't stop Gore. Nobody can. He is a monster and we can only hope we hold him to about 150.

150 !?!?!

We held (him) to 131 in SF and I think we're a better team now, IMO

I dunno, I can see him cracking 100 but I don't see 150 ...

150 is being nice. Maybe 300. Kaepernick is going to throw for 300 and 5 TDs, as well.

Russell Wilson is going to play HORRIBLE and my jersey purchase is going to be a regret. Probably going to sell my season tickets because we are going to be a laughing stock.

Gonna play so bad and not win anymore games.

He's only cracked 100 yards 3 times this season. He can be contained. Especially when we're up 28 by the end of the 1st quarter again. (i dont really expect that to happen, but it would be amazing!)

They pulled the trap trick on us the last game. So, we trap the trapper and Gore ain't getting much.

I'm honestly not worried about Gore. I'm worried about whoever's running the rock behind that line. We need to find a way to contain their run blocking. Their run blocking is ranked #1 in the league, per Football Outsiders. :(

Most likely not. I give us a 3-5% chance of accomplishing it. If we do get it, though...Man. Look out, NFC; we're steamrolling you to the Super Bowl.

The Seahawks will stop Gore by jumping out to a large lead and making the niners have to pass the ball to try to come from behind.

Theyre going to run the ball well, you can't do much about that. I think the important thing is to be able to stop it with your front & base D and not have to commit an extra guy to it. If we have to go down that road, I think we are SOL. Kap moves outside too well and they have too many weapons downfield to compromise your pass D to stop the run. I know this rings true in any game, but this is the first game in a LONG time where it's a real concern for our D.

i'm concerned about their recieving weapons.. how we going to contain, Moss, Crabtree, Manningham, Walker, and the one that scares me the most V. Davis.. with a depleted secondary...

Stopping Gore will be key to winning I believe. I think we can handle there WR's. But if Gore gets holes to run in then we should really worry about the play action. That will kill us. It's going to be a battle. I think we are up for the challenge!

There are those on this board that often discount explanations of the coaching staff as "coach speech". However, the coaching solution that has been given for those occasions where they have been gashed up the middle is ...... "gap discipline".

Watching the game, I believe this to be partially true because Bobby got caught several times on the wrong side of the center/Mebane. That said, our big D linemen were getting pushed around quite a bit, so even if Bobby didn't get trapped in the wrong gap, he is going to have to make difficult solo tackles against Gore. I hope that playing on our field (and not that muddy field in SF), our DL will look a lot better and force SF into smaller, more easily plugged gaps. I know I always hated playing on mud, and it certainly doesn't do our very quick D any favors. Anyway, telling myself this helps me sleep better at night until I think of playing these guys in SF in the playoffs (or any of the other natural turf fields for that matter - it seems like it causes our D to play poorly).
