Bennett on the sideline with trainers. Appears to be moving well.

I'm licking my chops... Hosley+Rivers+Boley is a HUGE boost for the defense.

I know... PF might actually blitz with that talent...

Eli may have Nicks, Cruz, Hixon, Randle and Barden for Sunday. And then we have Bennett (hopefully), Pascoe, Hynoski, Bradshaw, and Wilson to "throw" into the mix. OH, and Beatty :rolleyes:

I'd like them to send Stevie Brown off the edge

Wow, that's almost a fully healthy roster.

Is there any hope that Bernard or Phillips will play Sunday?

Ugh, we could really use Phillips. The idea of Vernon Davis going deep on us without him is a scary thought.

If Bernard can't go this Sunday, Marvin Austin has to get the start over Kuhn.. I like Kuhn because of his high motor, but we get gashed by the run when he's in the game, and the 49ers are very physical in the trenches.

I'm happy that Rivers is gonna play but I'm a bit afraid that he'll be a bit rusty and not at game speed yet. He's been out since the opening game.

Dare i say, we don't need bennet if he is hobbling too much with that Receiver core?

And you think it would be better with Austin starting?

someone needs to get hands on him at the line, throw him off his route. That alone can interrupt the timing between him and smith, tough task I know.

If they don't have Bennett for this game they will have some serious issues with their running game. He is also a huge target and draws attention on the passing game. If Bernard can't go that is another huge problem. We saw last week that a rookie and a guy who is trying to get his legs back after not playing for 3 years won't cut it. Now they are facing the best running team. Not the ideal situation to be in. As far as Nicks, I'm waiting for tomorrow's report before I get to excited. Lets see how his knee is after a day of practice. They need him. I hope he feels great tomorrow.

We still need Bennett to help blocking.

Hosley's a fantastic blitzer from the slot. Blitz him and keep Brown in run coverage.

J Williams and Rivers main objective will be to slow this man down.

To bad they had to lose Hill.

Would be great to see Rivers back at full speed - in his limited play, he seemed very very impressive.

I think betty would be fine by himself, why risk furhter injury if ( and i am saying if ) the problem is worst than what we are being led on to believe. Scheme better to work around the weaknesses of the Line without Bennett.

just saying

I hope they don't put prince on moss I love what the kid's been doing lately but I'm not sure he's ready for moss. I don't care how old he is he still can fly and catch over people if given the opportunity

Kuhn may have struggled with gap integrity but at least he wasn't getting pushed 10 yards downfield by double teams like Austin was! Rocky not playing could be huge this week!

Bennett is a HUGE part of the reason why our running game is starting to click

Can he though? As far as I can tell he had a short catch for his one TD this year - you have to go back to 2010 for any touchdowns before that.

I don't think they have given him many opportunities to, seems like when he's in they run the ball mostly. Just seems like a perfect trap to put a young kid like prince on him and his old self all of sudden returns. I rather put webby on him since he's had experience with him before.

Prince is very fast. Moss does have the height and experience though.

Yeah it's definitely not something we want to find out the hard way - he can't be slept on.

Crabtree - Rio - Davis and Moss with Gore in the back is going to have this D on high alert... But then again Nicks, Cruz, Bennett and Hixon with Bradshaw in the back ain't too shabby either :).

I think we need him BUT not at the expense of the immediate future. The guy played hurt last week and now has done something to his knee. Pascoe is there and we also have Robinson.

Pascoe is there and we also have Robinson.I totally forgot about Adrien Robinson. No one has mentioned a word regarding him ever since Mike Pope took him under his wing to train him. I think Robinson comes in when we're really desperate because from what I recall this kid is extremely raw.
