Hey everyone, welcome to the live blog. It's a beautiful day for football. Sun is out, temperatures in the mid-40s. Perfect weather.
OK, I'm back. Sorry, a technology glitch.
Yes, they do. Not a bad chance at all, actually.
I want to see how they handle Mike Evans. If they're still giving up big plays, then we know something is wrong. Also, let's see if the run defense can be dominant. It should be.
I think that's a big reason why they had him throw before the game at Pittsburgh and why they practiced him Saturday. It does give the team some ray of hope and probably lifts their spirits.
My guess is that Clark got an offer from another team to go on their 53-man roster and they didn't want to lose him.
They did. But I'm skeptical as well. I can't believe he's playing two weeks after suffering that injury. It's pretty miraculous. We'll see how long he lasts.
They do, but they need to establish the run and take some pressure off Hundley. They don't have to run it all the time, but they're going to need Williams and Jones to get some tough yards in the weeks to come. Might as well see if they can do it against a decent run defense.
That's my guess. I'll try to confirm it with him after the game.
Sparingly unless he somehow looks like his old self. I'm guessing a couple of series at most. But if he gets hot, they might just ride him a little.
I think it's pretty close. They've got most of their starters healthy.
None. Zero. Zilch. I mean they're playing a right tackle who has about 20 snaps played this year.
No. Clark is a much more explosive athlete. McCaffrey isn't going anywhere. If they want him back he'll be available. He needs to continue working in the weight room
I don't think it's the blitz as much as it is the front four. When they blitz, they're not bad. But it puts their secondary at risk. They need to rush four and get some pressure.
It wasn't blown coverages per se, it was bad technique, a lack of speed and Kevin King's injury. Brown made some phenomenal catches, but the coverage could have been tighter. The safeties need to play better.
The system isn't the problem. There aren't many bad systems in the NFL. It's the talent, the fit and the teaching.
