The New Orleans Saints welcome The San Francisco 49ers to The Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday. The 49ers are coming off a humungous Monday Night drubbing of The Chicago Bears, while the Saints had one of their best defensive performances against The Raiders last week. Who will be the quarterback for the 49ers in this game, and what do we expect with two of the most adaptive and unconventional offenses in the NFL facing off?
49ers Offense vs. Saints Defense
Will it be Colin Kaepernick or Alex Smith under center for the 49ers on Sunday? Reports out of San Francisco seem to indicate that Kaepernick will start, but Jim Harbaugh refuses to name a starter, citing competitive advantage. This question may determine the game plan for Steve Spagnuolo’s Saints defense. The Bears decided to bring pressure and leave Kaepernick with a lot of 1 on 1 throws and easy reads.
