Date: October 4, 2009
Time: 1:15pm PST
Location: Bill Walsh Field @ Candlestick Park, San Francisco, CA
Records: 49ers (2-1) Rams (0-3) Spread: 49ers -10; Over/Under 37; Money Line: 49ers -500, Rams +350 - Another site had the 49ers at -9.5. I'd feel more comfortable taking the 49ers to cover 9.5 over 10 (and a push), but I think the 49ers should handle their business today. I'd like to hope the team can put together at least a two TD victory, but we'll see. Gimme a cover and push on the over/under

Rams: QB Marc Bulger, CB Ron Bartell, WR Nate Jones, SS James Butler, G Roger Allen III, OT Jason Smith, DE Victor Adeyanju and DT Darell Scott.

And so arrives the 49ers chance for some early redemption. The 49ers have a long way to go this season, but this game is an important first step in bouncing back from last week's tough loss. The 49ers are better than the Rams and as a superior team they need to show they can take care of business. If they want to take a step forward they need to show they can handle their business against inferior teams. Time to take care of business.
