Orly Rios Jr. of ninernoise.com answers six questions about the upcoming contest between the San Francisco 49ers and the Washington Redskins. 49ers vs. Redskins – week 12. Here is part – 1 of the Enemy Intel Report – Week 12
1) Much Like the Redskins Robert Griffin III, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is having an off season from last year. What do you think are some reasons for this?
There are several reasons. For one, teams used the offseason to catch up on the pistol offense which is why it hasn’t been as successful this year as compared to last. I also believe that the 49ers receiving situation has been a mess which is why Kaepernick has suffered.
2) How has the off the field issues surrounding outside linebacker Aldon Smith affected the team?
Funny thing is that during Aldon’s suspension, the 49ers won five straight games, so I don’t believe his off the field issues have really affected the team. Corey Lemonier played well in Aldon’s absence.
3) How will the 49ers defense try to stop the Redskins rushing attack?
The 49ers have a solid front seven, one of the best in the league, but Alfred Morris will get his yards and touches. If anything, I think the bigger concern is RG3 busting loose for key 3rd down conversions and long back-breaking gains.
