We watched Henderson, getting beat last week, and now Brinkley, is going to try and cover the deep pass. Wish him the best, but think, this isn't going to be very pretty. On obvious passing downs, if there are any, a better solution, would be to put our third safety, Sanford, in at LB, he is not the greatest, but would have a better chance at stopping the deep pass than Brinkley.

The Vikings are asking for big trouble if they get into man to man coverage on this Niner WR-TE corps. The Niners o-line is good, disciplined and physical enough to keep Allen and Robison at bay, which spells trouble for the Vikings. 34-20 49ers.

Brinkley is a hard hitter, and a great tackler. He might be able to use the tackling ability, to tackle the receiver before the ball gets to him, might be the only way he can stop the pass from being completed. Just kidding of course.
