Aldon Smith is coming back. Patrick Willis is not. NaVorro Bowman still looks to be weeks away. On this week’s episode of the Better Rivals podcast, we look at how the latest news on San Francisco’s three star linebackers will impact a Vic Fangio defense that’s not getting nearly enough attention. A wild win in New Orleans saw the return of the power run game to the 49ers offense and we break down how Greg Roman made it happen. All that, plus preparing you for a Giants team that’s probably a bit better than you think it is.

Concepts Covered: Mike ILB, Jack ILB, Power Run, Counter Run, Crack Toss Sweep run
