By now, you’ve been hit with every piece of analysis on the NFC Championship matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers. We’ve gone in-depth on how Shanahan will attack Mike Pettine. We’ve talked about how Aaron Rodgers on that offense matches up against the Niners defense. We’ve also looked at how the game will be won in the trenches.

Now we can put that in audio form. Today’s guest is a good buddy of mine, Justis Mosqueda, who is a classy individual that was eating Domino’s pizza and plans to drink PBR during the game Sunday, is the Director of Analytics for Optimum Scouting. The last half-year or so, Justis has been working with the XFL and dealing with all their player personnel signings. This was probably the most fun episode I’ve recorded all season. Here is how the convo went:

  • Why Green Bay’s win over Seattle was smoke and mirrors in the “fraud bowl”
  • How the 49ers will be able to take advantage of the Packers dime defense
  • Jimmy G’s first playoff game
  • LB Blake Martinez and CB Kevin King having a bullseye on their back
  • Predicting how many points the 49ers offense will put up
  • If Aaron Rodgers is still Aaron Rodgers
  • The Packers secret weapon on offense
  • What makes Davante Adams so dangerous
  • Is calling Aaron Jones a top-five running back a hot take?
  • The speed of the 49ers defense and how athleticism makes this defense go
  • Pass-rush/block win-rate
  • Comparing both teams defensive lines
  • Arik Armstead’s season
  • Rodgers against the blitz
  • The instincts of the 49ers secondary
  • The perception of the Packers
