What will it take for the 49ers to spring an upset?

Postautor: liny195 » 28 gru 2018, 6:44

The San Francisco 49ers are a 9.5 point underdog against the Green Bay Packers and most of the free world figures Green Bay at least wins [url=http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-earl-mitchell-jersey]http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-earl-mitchell-jersey[/url] , even if they don’t cover the spread. There are a few holdouts among Week 6 NFL picks, including SB Nation’s own Ryan Van Bibber. His reasoning for picking the 49ers? “The Packers really should beat the 49ers on Monday night, but, hey, I’m not getting burned by them again.”There’s a website called NFL Pick Watch that tracks picks from NFL analysts, be they experts or slightly better than amateurs. They have 113 people they track, and of the ones who have submitted a pick, 98 percent are picking the Packers. The two people picking the 49ers are RVB and CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora.Given the Buffalo Bills beat the Minnesota Vikings in Minneapolis, it is safe to say that a 49ers upset is possible. It is not likely, but the NFL is proving this year that upsets can easily happen even amongst the worst teams in the league.But what will it take for the 49ers to spring an upset in Lambeau? If the 49ers don’t turn the ball over five times and can get one or two takeaways, it would put them in a much better position. But it will take more than that. Winning the turnover battle will help, but they’ll need more than that. They can’t have six drops [url=http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-joe-staley-jersey]http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-joe-staley-jersey[/url] , they can’t regularly miss tackles on defense, they certainly can’t be missing extra points!On offense, the 49ers will have to hold up against Mike Pettine’s exotic blitzing. Mike McGlinchey has improved in pass coverage the past couple weeks, and he’ll need to continue that this week. It’d be great having Matt Breida playing, but if not, they will turn to Alfred Morris to grind some clock. He has gotten more work in the passing game, but dominating time of possession (and not turning the ball over) will be key.On defense, the 49ers absolutely need to get pressure against a limited Rodgers. He still can get his passes off as quick as anybody, but with knee issues, it is critical the 49ers make him uncomfortable. On the back-end, they need whomever starts opposite Richard Sherman to show up with something resembling a decent performance.The 49ers don’t need a perfect game to beat Green Bay, but they do need a fundamentally sound game. I agree with Shanahan’s specific criticisms of Grant Cohn’s discipline questions [url=http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-pierre-garcon-jersey]http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-pierre-garcon-jersey[/url] , but I do think fundamentals have been a problem for this team. We have seen improvement, but the problem is inconsistency. The team improved their tackling this past week, only to struggle in a big way with drops. They cannot afford any inconsistency given the injuries that have left them shorthanded.I know most everybody thinks the 49ers will lose this game, but if they were to spring the upset, how do you see it playing out? I’m not expecting a full-on game recap, but what are some of the big things that lead to the upset? The injury news could have been worse regarding Matt Breida, but it appears the San Francisco 49ers will be without their top running back for at least one game.Breida underwent an MRI on Monday that showed a "serious sprain" to his left ankle, according to coach Kyle Shanahan. That likely will sideline Breida for next Monday night's game at Green Bay."It was positive news that it wasn't a high ankle sprain, (but) he'll probably end up being doubtful this week," Shanahan said.As the 49ers look to rebound from Sunday's deflating 28-18 home loss to the Arizona Cardinals, they'll probably have to do so without the player who's been their best offensive weapon, so far.Breida ranks fifth in the NFL with 369 rushing yards [url=http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-solomon-thomas-jersey]Cheap Solomon Thomas Jersey[/url] , and his 7.5 yards per carry average leads the league among those with at least 25 rushing attempts. He enjoyed a terrific first quarter Sunday before leaving with his ankle injury.Breida has been a bright spot for the struggling 49ers (1-4), who lost projected starting running back Jerick McKinnon to a torn ACL in the preseason and then watched No. 1 quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suffer the same season-ending injury in Week 3 against Kansas City.Without Breida, the 49ers would lean heavily on veteran Alfred Morris, who has shared ball-carrying duties with Breida and is more of a between-the-tackles runner.Raheem Mostert is third on the depth chart, but he's more of a special-teams contributor and he fumbled his first carry Sunday after Breida left the game.It wasn't a surprise that the 49ers brought in several running backs for workouts Monday afternoon. One of them was Jeremy McNichols, who was among San Francisco's training camp cuts this summer.Shanahan said the team would decide later in the week whether to sign a running back. Another option is promoting Jeff Wilson from the practice squad if Breida can't play Monday at Green Bay.The 49ers will take a two-day break before returning to the practice field Thursday to begin preparing for their prime-time game against the Packers.Figure a point of emphasis will be protecting the ball better, after San Francisco committed five turnovers in Sunday's loss to the previously winless Cardinals. It was the most turnovers for the 49ers since they had five against Seattle on Sept. 15, 2013.But another challenge for Shanahan is keeping his players mentally focused. Many viewed the 49ers as a potential playoff team before the season. Instead, they've lost four of their first five games and suffered a psychological blow when Garoppolo went down."It's different in this day and age where you hear everything," Shanahan said. "It's hard to simplify your world. And with social media, when guys go home, even if guys don't listen to things [url=http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-jaquiski-tartt-jersey]49ers Jaquiski Tartt Jersey[/url] , their wives do. Their girlfriends do. Their brothers do."When you go through that stuff and don't meet outside expectations, it starts to affect you. And I just try to constantly preach to our guys to be stronger than that, to try to not pay attention to that, because that's not going to help you solve any problems."NOTES: Receiver/punt returner Dante Pettis (left knee) already has been ruled out for a second consecutive game. Several others will be re-evaluated once the team returns to practice Thursday. They include receiver Marquise Goodwin (quad, hamstring), left tackle Joe Staley (knee), center Weston Richburg (knee), tight end George Kittle (knee) and cornerback Jimmie Ward (hamstring).
