Let's measure the 49ers chances of beating the Seahawks the super status with -- -- -- middle -- our -- morning guys John now you yesterday OC and stunning you. You think this is a must win for the 49ers right I think it's a must win because of the psyche of the rivalry right now. Now we just laurel and Seattle. The defending NFC champions in the defendant's defending NFC west champions resides here in San Cisco man ever won anything yet. They won one playoff game last year and as a wild card game. So -- other fought and listen I'm certain jump on the bandwagon in terms of I love their quarterback he's incredible their team obviously hasn't. The home field advantage is what it is I mean you can't dispute that there's nothing else like in football right nothing right now. But they haven't now -- Gannett and looks like the road to the suitable to go through Seattle but they haven't won yet so. Wall Street this week. For me is a must win because the 49ers. There's three playoff teams that they've lost to this year are actually forks you -- come colts but I mean within the NFC Saint Louis army announcing let's put New Orleans Carolina and obviously Seattle Irene cal -- game in the second week of the season. But that they need -- that mindset that they can beat playoff teams especially Seattle. It just kind of show like you know how Mike Tyson used to come into the ring and a first round -- swinging -- I feel like this game's gonna be the kind of like. But with two teams like yet -- actually coming out swinging. The forty niners to win at home to kind of get their remote -- back the kind of like hey guys could put the -- it up its entry link whatever the hell you call that place. But we still -- this division what do you think why do you. I'm just curious I know it's early in the season why do you say that that. Wind up -- yelling almost don't count it I mean it was so long ago I mean 49ers don't think about that you know the way football teams and coaches operate. They forgot about that game two weeks after it happened but it's still kind of lingers because we talk about it. But as a team. They don't really think about that I mean they've lost two more racing games to playoff teams. And Munich games just it's -- is pretty relevant to them to be honestly. -- Now they may have to go back up there and then -- game becomes more. You know magnified and comes back -- the forefront perfect game to me has little to do with the game is going to be played on Sunday John middle cup super scout with a -- 9570 and how much would Joseph -- be missed. He'll be missed but I thought they played finally did go out to him now that's another Miami for the psyche if they can beat Seattle without him. -- the huge you don't show guys you know they that next man up. Data coaches love to say analysts Gaza front office the next intellect she's against socks on -- the. That's the case -- this forty and -- team and maybe that's what separates them from most of the teams that they have great depth they they really do we saw that with them on the game skewed and we've seen with Jared at the end. In these last two weeks you know they're playing at a high level but they're playing at a level they can get them. To where they wanna go. Defensively especially I -- Callan. Played better than -- did against Washington I thought he was awesome out of four of his best game site green Bay's best game proceed how accurate is this dumb because sometimes we overstate things. New Orleans loaded the box dared -- nick to beat -- couldn't do it. Redskins to a degree did the same thing with less access ramps to the same thing it didn't work for them. Seattle likely to do at this weekend they did -- what I -- is the big kicker I've been hesitant to anoint this guy hired that he was gonna come back that. You know full speed full strength. -- fifteen there was a big deal. I mean just hanging out with Papa. -- You'll get -- -- 85 definitely. Got Michael Crabtree I mean whatever you wanna call. It you know. He didn't come off the field very much. It wasn't like they were holding him back or. Limiting his wraps. He he was just. Another player in the flow of the game like he'd never left he went that he and he was wrapped heated and he has given how does he look this week how does he feel today. Out of middle. Like 820 wait until it was a bit like fourteen -- and it. A lot of balls from forty CX rated three a lot of I brought it up look at the -- and an end Vernon Davis I said yesterday. How's -- -- MVP of this of the offense. He is such in this match and he plays. At the speed can't be mimicked in practice for the opposing team at that position how do you cover him with an outside linebacker safety and blocks and blocks. I mean IQ -- so fired -- for this game on Sunday and -- Thomas just companies get on the Lisa bloom on his or pop in general and trying to yeah. He Lucy do CBS. Honestly right now that quarterback is so important what they're doing -- he. The way he operates. I mean he's the total package honestly I mean besides his height other than that there is not an aspect of his game. Sometimes not huge called cap for next supporter. You washed away Russell -- after the game. And his purse I understand -- does like the media and I'm not expecting him kissing and then ask. But just how we smiles and -- how he interacts with Ron Amadon yeah -- gives them a little bit. It would take so much pressure off my field 49ers and Colin. If you -- just -- -- any kind of did it with crab tree and it crumbled but he had to bring on the podium that's his bid you know the world against me out of this chip on my shoulder and how the favorite the negative -- we. Honestly I I'm kind of like -- myself but sometimes. I pretend like you three even though I don't really I'm only draft generally only perhaps are awake. Eat eat it up by the comparing himself to college Aberdeen and it's usually just happened -- -- -- Davis he's inter locking does not slow down guys -- out every everyone counted us out I started favoring tweets -- -- that. And so I go to move you don't I don't. It's about a -- last that he threw for 310 and three touchdowns. He ran for 47 yards he's so quick to recognize. When it's time to run -- so quick to get out there and boom he's gone like that in the in in an instant widely Ron Amadon he talked about it on the post game show to. Lot of quarterbacks when they have immediate success. They kind of rests on their laurels they they say okay have made it. But that's when you have to take it to the next level academically through your mind through studying the game studying tape. He was saying how impressive it was at the snap the ball immediately he knew well this guy was not yet a plan of attack when he goes the line of scrimmage. Like Peyton Manning like Tom Brady do. They're out there or not. It there're not reactive there they're reacting because they know everything is gonna happen their pro active zone out of the house 49ers defense didn't get after. I mean absolutely pummel every play and I I -- 999. And do that before but honestly watching. -- Smith on against Saint Louis I was at the game about physically he's back to where he was. Even plays where he did not lay in the quarterback he had Jake Long in the year driving. I mean Jake Long was in for a long day beside the Donte Whitner. Most impressive bullets I've ever seen in the history of blitzes I mean he took out two defense or too -- -- players and knocked out the left tackle. But that's the -- Smith I think really kind of coming into his own. But 99. -- -- right now. Zealanders are certain numbers and did it seek its island he's ranked highest and and 52 or 53 law. Your appearance at the -- if they played pretty good and low scoring game probably similar to what we had last year in October. I think in the mid twenties just because I think he's offenses are playing really well I mean Seattle. You -- argue Russell Wilson is the MVP of the league mom and CONCACAF bring the way he's played the last couple weeks within -- kind of hitting a stride -- Crabtree back Vernon davis'. You see the run game going on there of keeping we see more zone read maybe capita use his legs -- the I think you're gonna see some wrinkles that you haven't seen come and. Especially Harbaugh. There wasn't a point there wasn't one -- -- that rams game where he's at. When -- and yeah that's terrible I like our -- about six plays Zach in particular the Redskins even though. He was only 106 at halftime come there wasn't you know like RG -- written now you never thought that then soul. I would agree with you some wrinkles some zone read so maybe that Auburn the zone read keeper pass certain exactly. That's when I'd like to Harbaugh you and you listen and so that. That's where other super status with us John middle off earlier we had some numbers that show the raiders can't. Lose this week we'll see -- the super special part of the other numbers next off on the Bay Area speaker's numbers force that he five point seven games before we get to the raiders John. I realize I didn't really ask you do you think the 49ers will win this week. It is a must win according to huge I think the world. I think it's going to be national blood -- and I think it's easily going to be one of the hardest hitting games of the year. One thing I noticed when I was big game on -- ever notices all year. There's not a more violent team currently warriors. Every one of their tackles. It looks like them but offensive player may not get up. In the absolutely do mall which players. I would hate to play the -- -- 49ers and as a that the player Jake Long left tackle. Got knocked out of the game by the strong safety. Has that ever happened in the history of the data at the doctor -- strong safety destruct with if I -- 31 coming at me full speed. And death anyone's way that Fort Knox defense KN OC KS has some of called pleasantly. Comment okay there you got we got raiders this week and here's the deal John. Gina Smith the starting his last touchdown pass was three days before the World Series started it he -- and Ed Reed did. Is -- ten this year. Houston lost every game when he played them -- went -- the jets them one against disease. Two of them I don't know if Rex Ryan thinks it's 2004 but Ed -- cannot play. I don't scarcely so good for the raiders right. But the problem is New York's front four very very good. They might have well I mean their records I can get enough to -- get the defense players -- Romo will Gerson number 96. These are just like a lot of fans to know -- -- -- -- I was very about the fan is been a very he's been a dominant. Defense and if -- Coppola got a draft of children Richardson of their defense of line. I -- the raiders offensive line has struggled this year this this could be their toughest test. And Rex Ryan from a schematic standpoint. You could argue he's the best defense of mine in the -- He really as I'd all the are all rather be asked to take your team to Dave and buster's and when it comes down -- nosed defense. Rex Ryan is -- against. CD QB download something from blowing. Picks -- -- -- how imagine gore I mean he's beat Tom Brady multiple times Maclaurin is not making. Rex Ryan lose sleep at night don't you think it's. Likely that next year we'll glowing and prior are both backing out Josh Freeman. In Oakland now -- they -- a lot of them -- I'm not saying they should I'm not a just living. Tip is done yet I wouldn't has Josh Freeman with him I wouldn't either believe we know -- really a match jobs on the compete but Josh Freeman is a bad -- but they like them. I agree with you but they like -- they tried to trade for and he's going to be freeagent. When touch I would neither for a league minimum. I think with the NFL -- the teams that are successful -- it was Seattle. It all starts at the top before even players with the GM in the in the head coach. Pete Carroll John Schneider is go to -- a clear -- bulky Jim Harbaugh was go with Jim Harbaugh brother John Harbaugh Ozzie Newsome who. If this isn't rocket science. You have to have top notch people up top to win in this league and you're seeing the raiders don't. Don't leading question her move to strike your honor fair question I'll allow it we're not in court I'm -- -- is doesn't look like okay. I mean it really it really really does you led to witness there. I have no problem I was gonna throw -- under the bus the whole group. Because -- I don't know if they're good enough off and I album and I'm not it's hard for me to throw Dennis Allen completely under the bus because he was hired. Someone had to offer him the job. Was he ready matter is he had -- I don't know is he probably a really good defense coordinator number two -- what looks like I know they have some good. Bobby April is that Steve -- did goat I'd Jason Tarver really good. But I mean do they have the next Bill Belichick Jim Harbaugh is that Denzel and thinks -- It is Reggie Ozzie Newsome he -- letter from balky what are. What leads you to feel that way the player acquisitions through the draft. You and what about a coach Alan especially how come you're you're not sure it's almost two years in now. Practicing to juries really -- it's again I'm putting more the onus on the general -- okay him -- it's hard to judge. A younger coach that has. Mediocre at best talent Zack and it -- are pointing the finger more together to -- and the running the show. Now I know they had all these salary cap restrictions that now start. They're drafts have been Hutu. Have been horrendous and that's their only way -- this thing isn't -- you may have to draft -- tell you -- in the NFL will look at these teams look at Seattle gays and not that I'm a play devil's advocate a look at the picks we have an -- picks because of the political pressure -- -- -- in -- Singh -- you look at the players taken around DJ and and it's not at all. DJ in the past. Really sorry analyzing DJ eight minutes past -- Eliot immediately impact -- down -- -- If you are the guys that have this this injury that almost ended his career and life and they -- multiple injuries since he's abdominal he's got a growing. It's all in the general area. That's a factor they do when you take the guy the risk vs reward. Like he was Deion Sanders. Playing Houston he would have played a -- Stater let's see. I just got some blue chip can't miss. 61 ass kicker. -- -- Exactly I mean you're talking about a blue chip guy from LSU to a team captain as true sophomore not a team littered with NFL -- said it was a -- -- Any get middle Watson there have been a one year wonder again I mean I talked to people to be a great upside. There are none upside should have to hit some solid doubles they kick off please walk off home runs we take him at three you. You crazy. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Give Augusta and DJ done an incredible story. That -- commit. Even in the top fifteen with that injury there out of position it's like that -- they just need to get solid guys and then to everyone's like what what are we gonna get a quarterback. Generally improving quarterback. Drafted a guy in the fourth round -- all. Of. That's why I don't want to read -- -- play quarterback got him multiple not. And I had a bad -- out of multiple times wrote Edward scissor hands last -- now before Bennett has got me thinking about in game can multiple times a week. -- -- can barely complete a pass some of these teams have quarterbacks. Teams it's doable with the -- the boards of backup quarterbacks and no team signs this guy not one. As their back up now one. We just -- for Teresa and it. Just or regular job and all that's happened to all of that said they -- -- they -- they have to chart a future. They're four -- a look in an attempt into the schedule. Go into the start of next season. Do you reasonably expect both those guys -- still their jobs would they don't win out. I've said it all before they played Dallas they could play relatively well and not win another game. They've also in two of the games they've lost Dallas and the giants. Lucky in the First Lady did the -- -- -- it needed to step up just to give it closer and it. Just some thoughts here on the -- 995795. -- Livermore says let's look back at the first go rest for Belichick in Carol they -- let's wait to pass judgment on Allen. Patrick says look at how bad the Packers are another jump on -- place in America applause as. He says look go with Rodgers or look -- by the Packers are that Rodgers McCarthy and Thompson now idiots you need a quarterback. And -- -- have a bulky speak of AJ Jenkins they don't all hit home runs. Nobody -- dressed and Al Smith called -- -- Not a -- to -- more Michael Rivera and they look to be promising today he's got it when you draft that high. When you're in that position in at number three in the trade back to them you get out again a big time you're right I mean -- -- just stay. Not I mean given the benefit out won't call -- franchise changer but again I think it's a big time impact guy about just out ahead on aunts are -- if you look at the raiders that if their pick and fifth sixth seventh eighth this coming draft. Which player which type player would they go for. Why I think you have to look to ways either an offensive linemen and there's going to be some very very good offensive tackles -- Tex a and M Matthews -- it Michigan law and 71 set the air and water until an Alabama. And then there's gonna be a franchise changer at wide receiver I think Julio Jones AJ green cards -- league not him Sammy Watkins a Clemson really he has a six foot 22 -- five pounds. Easily meets prime more in the twenties type McEnroe Diana because he's not that big. Sammy Watkins is a thoroughbred. The the raiders need to draft a H a game changer someone that becomes a dominant tackle immediately some of the becomes a wide receiver game breaker defense coordinators have does scheme against kids get did you -- -- apps are all yet he had that double bypass heart surgery. This to me too many risks there too many variables that come into play. -- did -- -- this out I understand that he's gonna get another chance down the road he can only. He only took what the angriest he's been give Jason is in the -- and it's tough when guys like Kiko Alonso and now honey that you get drafted -- in the draft and greater CK in the first round. Come on Reggie and our Keenan Allen again I was hesitant on -- and but that our -- guy with the raiders backyard and no it's an album better than Oakland San Disco and especially in pro baseball for their. Facility where he practice every day. That's got its gonna be in their division for the next year's ticket about when the big picture of them is the next couple years with the -- -- just unbelievably huge because they do you have the their -- sort of come back into the draft. The the there's no way to seeking to out and free -- their way back in the competition -- but the freeagent NFL it's not the not like baseball and depth in -- Mosul couple big fish every year. It doesn't work that way in the NFL you've seen -- time I saw -- Philadelphia the dream team. We get a free agency GRC Jason Babin Ronnie Brown Vince -- our name and all these guys. Not the awesome Omnia and it didn't work. Because then financially. You constrain yourself in the room for errors even more minimal you have to -- to the draft now they've done better look at the players and -- -- -- to show on LeSean McCoy nick fools guys you draft here. In the new key to new mole not because guys what they get paid. They've already come from the minds of that they know how to succeed he can't say well I know he played outside leverage here organ only play it's time -- try to do would not mean it didn't works dramatically. You kind of hoping in the guy's gonna that you never know exactly the guy's gonna fit. But if you sign a third baseman -- their basement for the day is no different plan for the Tampa Bay -- all the same make and friends wherever he goes assume there's I don't know. Now thanks in great stuff for every candidate John and look out.
