As the St. Louis Rams and San Francisco 49ers get set to square off at the Edward Jones Dome on Sunday, a lot of attention is being paid to the 24-24 tie the two teams played to three weeks ago in San Francisco. The first match-up between the division rivals was a classic and was so close mainly because of the play of the two running backs. Rams running back Steven Jackson and 49ers running back Frank Gore have been with their respective teams for years and Sunday may be the last time fans get to see the two clash in their respective uniforms. Jackson has played nine seasons and has rushed for 9,817 yards and 54 touchdowns and has averaged 4.2 yards per carry throughout his career.  Jackson has also made 385 career reception, scoring eight more times through the air.

Goldson, Whitner patrolling the middle for 49ers

There's a price to pay for those who venture across the middle of the San Francisco 49ers' defense. Dashon Goldson and Donte Whitner are making sure of that. The territory patrolled by the pair of hard-hitting safeties has become a danger zone this season for San Francisco opponents, several of whom have had to be helped off the field after getting leveled by one of the...

That’s what the San Fransisco 49ers get for being greedy

Alex Smith (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Now if you have listened to my show at all in the last two weeks on the BTR Network (http://www.blogtalkradio.com/letstalknfl), you know exactly where I am about to go.  The whole benching Alex Smith this late in the season for basically a rookie is just asinine.  Now I am not an Alex Smith fan by any means, but common sense is common sense...
