The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Marc Lawrence — It would be in the 49ers’ best interest to play keep away from the Chiefs and limit their possessions. Running back Raheem Mostert leads a balanced rushing attack for San Francisco. Along with Matt Breida and Tevin Coleman, each have posted more than 500 rushing yards this season and have been very effective at different points. The 49ers also have the ability to run out of many different formations to keep opposing defenses off-balance, and they do a great job of staying patient with the ground game even when trailing. The running game will end up opening things for Jimmy Garoppolo to go to work from the pocket and get the ball in the hands of Emmanuel Sanders, Deebo Samuel, and George Kittle through play-action passes. San Francisco leads the league in running back rushing yards, as they ran the ball 427 (2nd) times for 2,051 yards (1st). Their 4.8 yards per carry ranked fifth and their 19 rushing touchdown were first. They were a dominate rushing team. The 49ers led the NFL with an average of 6.7 yards on first-down plays. Having to convert first downs in 2nd and 3.3 yards to go situations is what put the Niners into this game. To read more on why San Francisco will win Super Bowl LIV click here.

  1. Don`t know or believe much about Coin Tosses ! The 49 ers have played well enough and won when tested ,home or away.The young KC QB may have too much pressure on him,after all he`s only 23.Even a magician has some limits but IF he`ll play like he has been throwing,running ,escaping he will deserve all the compliments and kudo$ that he`ll receive,But i`m rooting the ‘traditional’ and tested San Fran roots with the Di Bartolos of yesteryear along with the images of Joe Montana,Walsh,Rice,Young et al.. and maybe we`ll get to see,one more time,how good Bosa and company are,,The running game depends on so many chess game moves,blocks,openings,action and reactions that anything else could decide the game from one good tight end to a field goal.Also J Garoppolo`s biggest test as most ‘xperts’ keep on being skeptical about him.Ok,he ain`t Mahones,but SF does nor need such a QB; should be content with Jimmy G..or so i hope.. The coach difference?… The KC coach has had many chances to win big,in Philly and other places,,why tomorrow ?……. SF -KC 28-24.
