9 Vikings-49ers Storylines To Follow

Posted by Mike Wobschall on September 19, 2012 – 5:52 am

For team’s that suffered through a defeat on Sunday, the following Wednesday can’t come soon enough. Wednesday is the day NFL teams officially flip their calendars from one week to the next and begin on-field preparations for the upcoming opponent.

The Vikings upcoming opponent is the 2-0 San Francisco 49ers, the defending champions of the NFC West who were just moments away from a berth in last year’s Super Bowl before losing to the NY Giants at home in the NFC Championship Game. San Francisco is a team with impressive wins at Green Bay in Week 1 and then at home against the Detroit Lions in Week 2.

Here are a few storylines we’ll be chasing this week as the Vikings prepare to battle the 49ers at Mall of America Field on Sunday…

1. 49ers Defense Poses Nasty Challenge
In their two early-season wins, this 49ers defense held Green Bay – last year’s highest-scoring offense at 35.0 points per game – to just 7 points through three quarters of play, and they held Lions QB Matthew Stafford – a 5,000-yard passer a season ago – to just 230 passing yards and one touchdown. Justin Smith and Aldon Smith team to form a stout presence against the run and effective pass rushing from the edge of the 3-4 alignment, inside linebackers NaVorro Bowman and Patrick Willis roam the middle of the defense, and both CB Carlos Rogers and S Dashon Goldson hold down a secondary with sound coverage ability and a physical presence against the run.

The Vikings have weapons to go at this defense. Percy Harvin – more on him in a bit – is good enough to produce against any defense, Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart won’t be afraid to challenge the run defense, and it will be fun to watch TE Kyle Rudolph battle these talented and fierce LBs. This is a very good 49ers defense, no doubt, but the Vikings won’t back down just because many think they’re outmatched.

2. How Will The 49ers Defend Percy Harvin?
This just in: Percy Harvin is really good. He has been the heart and soul of the Vikings offense, and he will surely be a focal point for the 49ers this week in their preparations. But that doesn’t mean he’ll be neutralized. Coming off his performance in Week 1 – 192 combined yards on 14 total touches – Harvin was certainly priority #1 for the Colts last week. It didn’t matter. Harvin had a career-high 12 receptions last Sunday, and he’s now hauled in 18 of the 21 passes Christian Ponder has sent his way. There’s no question the 49ers will focus on Harvin this week and on Sunday. The question is, how will they try to take him out of the game? And more importantly for the Vikings, how will Harvin be utilized against this talented defense?

3. How Will The Vikings Defend Vernon Davis?
The Vikings have surrendered TDs to TEs in each of the first two games, with Mercedes Lewis finding paydirt in Week 1 and Dwayne Allen striking early last week. If the Vikings don’t fix that issue by Sunday, Vernon Davis could wreck the game. In two games this season, Davis has 8 receptions for 116 yards and 3 TDs. He has the body and strength of a TE, but he runs and catches like a WR. It’s entirely possible that Davis is the top priority – in conjunction with stopping the run (always a top priority in the NFL) – for the Vikings defense heading into this game.

4. Willis Is San Francisco’s Man in the Middle
The 49ers defense features plenty of talented players, one of which is arguably the best inside LB in the NFL – Patrick Willis. On multiple occasions, I’ve heard Vikings RB Adrian Peterson explain that Willis is one of the fiercest hitters in the League and one of the players Peterson respects the most. The Vikings found Peterson – the cornerstone of their offense – with the 7th pick of the 2007 draft, and the 49ers found Willis – the cornerstone of their defense – with the 11th pick in the same draft. On Sunday they’ll square off once again, the third time the Vikings and 49ers have met since each player’s rookie season (the Vikings are 2-0 in those games).

5. Are There Any Parallels Between Alex Smith And Christian Ponder?
San Francisco QB Alex Smith was much maligned early in his career, as the former No. 1 overall pick labored through his first six NFL seasons. Smith endured a seemingly countless number of coaching and coordinator changes, and it took him five seasons to complete 60% of his passes or register a passer rating over the pedestrian rate of 75.0. But the 49ers patience and belief in Smith has paid off. Smith has blossomed into a calculated-but-cunning passer. Last season while guiding San Francisco to a 13-3 record, Smith completed 61.3% of his passes and boasted a clean 17-5 TD-INT ratio. His rock-solid play has shifted the perception others have of him from a passer who just manages the game to a passer who helps the 49ers win games.

Ponder, also a 1st-round pick, is only 13 games into his career – not even a full season of playing experience yet – so it’s premature to compare his path to the one Smith took. Ponder is completing a League-high 75.8% of his passes and has a passer rating of 110.6, so it’s unlikely it will take him six seasons to reach the 60% completion rate and 75.0+ passer rating milestones mentioned above. And we certainly hope Ponder enjoys the synergy of a coaching staff with little change. The point here is a more general one – have patience and confidence in your young 1st-round passer. Allowing him to develop will pay dividends if you can build a solid team around him. I think the Vikings are on the right track with Ponder.

6. Vikings Must Be Buttoned Up In Kick Coverage
The 49ers put up an incredible statistic in 2011 – they had 37 offensive drives that started at midfield or in plus territory. Thirty-seven. A big reason for that are San Francisco’s tremendous return teams. The 49ers ranked 1st in kickoff return average at 27.2, with Ted Ginn handling the bulk of those (29 returns for 800 yards – a 27.6-yard average), and they ranked 4th in average drive start (23.9-yardline). Also, the 49ers ranked 5th in punt return average (12.4 yards), with Ginn handling most of those as well. Ginn remains the 49ers return man, so the Vikings kick coverage groups have their work cut out for them. Here’s the good news: the Vikings rank 4th in opponents average drive start after a kickoff (19.4-yardline), and they rank 6th in opponents punt return average (6.2). This will be a good battle to watch all game.

7. Vikings Defensive Line To Face Solid 49ers Offensive Line
Speaking of a good battle to watch all day, don’t forget to check out Vikings DE Jared Allen going against San Francisco LT Joe Staley. Both are Pro Bowlers – Allen has 4 and Staley made his 1st appearance last year – and both are nasty. Allen will be angry, as he’s still looking for his first sack of the season. Staley will be determined to keep it that way and let the Detroit Lions worry about giving up Allen’s first sack of 2012. Aside from Allen vs. Staley, though, there is a good matchup in the trenches. Playing next to Staley at LG is Mike Iupati, a 2010 1st-round pick out of Idaho, playing at center is Jonathan Goodwin (151 career games, 78 starts) and anchoring the right side at tackle is another former 1st-rounder, Anthony Davis.

8. Using The Dome-Field Advantage
Historically the Vikings have been tough to beat at home. They are 158-88 (.642) all-time at Mall of America Field, and when the Vikings give their fans something to cheer about, that building gets loud. The noise can make it difficult for opposing teams to operate. It’s common for coaches or players who join the Vikings from other teams to tell the rest of us how hard it is to play at Mall of America Field when the place is rocking. Last year, though, the Vikings didn’t play well at home – they were 1-7 at Mall of America Field – and that decreased their advantage in the building. If the Vikings are to pull an upset this week, they’ll need to play well early to encourage the crowd to be loud and make it tougher on Alex Smith and Co.

9. Randy Moss Returns To Minnesota
49ers receiver Randy Moss spent plenty of time on the Vikings sideline at Mall of America Field, playing for the Purple from 1998-2004 and again in 2010. On Sunday, though, Moss will appear in the stadium as a member of the visiting 49ers. It will be interesting to observe the home crowd’s reaction to Moss, from the time Moss appears on the field for pre-game warm-ups to the time the 49ers leave the field following the game. What will Moss do if he scores? What will he do if he doesn’t? You just never know with Moss.

One thing you do know, though, is that Moss will go down as one of the greats in Vikings history. He was always a fan favorite – and remains the favorite of some fans to this day – and he ranks second in Vikings history behind Cris Carter with 587 receptions, 9,316 receiving yards and 92 touchdowns.

    wow good article. im actually a little worried about this game now. and IMHO i think the vikings will look better as a team against the niners than either the pack or lions.

    If the Vikes play like they did against the Jaguars and Colts, it will be a long day for Minny!! This game should dictate how the rest of the season will go for the Vikes!! If we play a great game against the 49ers and pull the upset, it will give this young team a lot of confidence the rest of the season, that they can compete against the best in the league!!! We don’t have a tough schedule this year but this game other than divisional games, is probably the toughest of the year!! Go Vikes!!

    Maybe 42-6. I highly doubt the Vikings Offense will even get a touchdown, not to mention, the fact that the Niners recieving corps is going to run wild against our secondary. It’s the NFL and stranger things have happened, but the odds are definatly stacked against the Queens.

    Percy Harvin is one of the best players in this league and its about time the rest of the league took notice!! He doesn’t get the pub that some of the best players in this league do because he plays in a small market and the Vikes, I hate to say it, are just not that good,yet!!!!!!
    We have got to sign this guy to a long term deal and keep him in Minnesota for a long time!! We’ve lost to many WR’s here and its about time that this organization steps up and pays the man the money hes worth to us!!! I don’t want to see this guy in another uniform beating us on a Sunday!!!

  8. By 61Vikings on Sep 19, 2012 | Reply

    I don’t want to admit it, but this 49ers team is one heck of a team!! This Viking organization should take notice to this 49ers team and try an emulate them!! They were built the right way, with the emphasis on the OL and the DL, also they were very patient with their #1 draft pick six years ago in Alex Smith!!! They could have given up on Alex Smith many times but they stuck with him, while still building this team into the team they are now!! I found myself routing for this team last year in the playoffs, but won’t Sunday!! Go Vikes!!!

    Don’t expect Frazier or any of those other clowns, to think up anything worthwhile. One thing for sure, Frazier will be standing there on the sidelines chewing gum, with a puzzled blank look on his face, wondering where that frieght train came from. 49ers-62, Vikings-minus-0..McTitus-double-00.

    Reminds me ,,,in 2007 when S,D, Chargers came in to our dome and was picked to beat us up,they had a good record and were heavy fav,,,a young rookie running back completely destroyed them,ring a bell?Well I have noticed west coast teams seem to struggle in our dome no matter how good they are,We have to have a sell out and be as loud as we can be and I believe in our run game,we have to control the clock and our run game will have to be at its best,,,but I know we have a good chance of beating them and it will revolve around our running game,,,,Plus our secondary will have to shoten up and plug them at the line giving our def front time to get after Smith,linebacker play will be crucial,so will keeping def fresh that means keep them off the field,,,we can do it if we play our game,,,go vikings

    When high school football is over in Mississippi…

    Why not bring in Favre to help “coach” and mentor young Ponder and Bethel- Thompson ???…

    Ponder is a cerebral QB with similar abilities to Farve…Favre can help Ponder with quick decision 2 minute drills…no huddle offense…muddle huddle offense…pump fakes to manipulate defenses…foot work…etc…

    Favre is the master…And might help with an offense that has trouble getting into a rhythm on offense…

    The quick feet and gunslinger arm of Bethel- Thompson could benefit a great deal from teachings of a Favre also on the practice squad…Thompson reminds me of Favre just starting out as a rookie…

    Mange expectations guys. This one won’t be close and shouldn’t be. Our Vikes just are not at the same level (yet). Right now, the Niners are far better on both sides of the ball talent-wise, better coached and play every down like it’s their last and like THEY are the ones with something to prove. Besides, if a nobody like Gabbert can come into the dome with a new coach and bunch of unproven players and almost beat the Vikes, what will the Niners do with the 3 Smiths, Davis, Gore, Manningham, Moss, Crabtree, etc? If they do manage to pull off a miracle this Sunday, that will definitely be the shot in the arm that this team and coaching staff needs. It doesn’t guarantee a winning season this year, but gives the players, coaches and the fans some confidence that there is light at the end of the tunnel. GO VIKES!

    Replacement Ref’s ???…

    Wow…The NFL has a problem here !!!…

    But as disappointed as I am in the job the replacement officials are doing…The NFL is right…Things have to change to the system that is in place for the regular ref’s also…

    Even if that means holding out and breaking the union…

    Sure..The replacement officials are BAD…But were the professional union officials doing a good job of officiating the last few years ???…

    These officials that are supposed to KNOW all the rules ???…

    Roger Goodell wants player accountability within the NFL…

    And I think demanding the ref’s to be accountable for their decision makings, should be held to an even HIGHER standard than the players…

    There were plenty of blown calls happening on the field that effected player safety…Long before the replacement ref’s showed up on the field…

    There should be a “referee pool” of ref’s…To replace ref’s making bad calls on the field…

    The union can say this is the reason or that is the reason for the unions stance on this stalemate with the NFL…

    I think it all stems from….Senior officials think there jobs should be written in stone…No matter what quality of their play calling…Being good or bad…

    Things need to change…

    With the play calling by the union ref’s being so poor in past years…I would not doubt this strike going on for a long time yet…If the union does not bend on its stance considerably…

    @Spoiler alert. You are obviously a Packer fan. Calling our team “Queens” You sound as if all is lost and that the Vikes have no chance in this game. Oh contrare monfrare… If our Defense can put pressure on Smith then we are going to see a new day. Allen and the boys are due for a sack-filled day and our secondary is about 3 years over due for some picks. I think we may see an intensity this week that we haven’t seen for a long while. We saw a bit of it in game one, but I think we will see more Sunday. Even if the Vikes do not get a win, they are not going to go down without a fight and will make things interesting AND they will score more than 3 points. So- if you are a Viking fan,then show em some respect or crawl back under your rock…. You are either with them or not…

    As a Niner’s fan (since 1977), have to be a little worried about this game with the Vikes. Two HUGE wins past two weeks, this could very well be a trap game.. and Niners dont have a great record in MN. This game wlll not be a slam dunk in my opinion.

    As a Niners fan I have both respect and empathy for Vikes fans. They’ve been class acts over the years & I really think they got jobbed in the Saints game where they were paying guys to tee off on Favre after the whistle. They’re a young and talented team that can definitely learn a bit from a 49ers team that was in the exact same position a few years ago with rebuilding. I hope it’s a great game with ZERO and I meant 0 injuries. To hope for zero bad calls would be as fruitless as me buying a lottery ticket. Good luck Vikes fans be gracious to the guys in Red & Gold win or lose!

    Hi everyone, here is my 2 cents worth as to how I see the game;

    1. We “must” be able to run the ball
    2.” Absolutely no turnovers”
    3. No or no penalties
    4. We “must force turnovers and sacks”
    5. Ponder “must have an exceptional day passing the ball”

    If all the above happens we just might win the game, go Vikings.

    3. Vikes have some pro bowl defense players
    4. Peterson will do better because he’s playing at home
    5.If Ponder can take it serious and play the whole game and not just the last 10 minutes sf is in for a long afternoon.
    6. Our kicker is better than there return team
    7. SF doesnt scare me at all
    8.Time to turn on the dome advantage,give the Vikes a 12 man advantage
    9. Moss, sure can play when he wants to.
