Golden Nuggets: Dee-fense time

San Francisco 49ers links for Friday January 10, 2020

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

Doesn’t that bring back memories of Dean-fense? It looks like the good ole days are back again. We really need his speed on passing downs. I still think the player we have missed the most on defense though was Jaquiski Tartt. No offense intended to Marcel Harris but the team really seemed to struggle without Tartt in the lineup. He has been outstanding against both the run and the pass all year. Ok, ok, I will make sure I also mention how excited I am to have Kwon Alexander back. We now should be just as strong in the base defense as we are in the nickel.

Kittle says he isn’t worried about the Vikings focus on him. That sounds just like the Kittle we have grown to love. Let the Vikings focus on him, this could be a very big day for the Samuel and Sanders’ show. Then you have both Kittle and Juszczyk blasting mega holes for Mostert and Breida. Who knows Kittle may even take on a triple team for a game winning touch down?

I am actually feeling pretty good abut this game. I think the Vikings will hang around but I think we have a quarterback that will get the job done in the fourth quarter with the game on the line.
