Thursday Night Football Pick

ColinKaepernick1My Overall Record: 29-20

San Francisco @ St. Louis

After an impressive victory over the Green Bay Packers in Week 1, the San Francisco 49ers have gone through a couple of tough weeks, coming up very small in losses to Seattle and Indianapolis.

Colin Kaepernick looked like a top-10 quarterback against Green Bay, putting up 400 yards for the first time in his career along with three touchdowns, but he’s struggled in the last two games, throwing for a combined 277 yards with no touchdowns and an alarming six total turnovers.

The Niners have also gone through some off-field drama, losing top pass rusher Aldon Smith for a month due to a substance abuse problem that he is now seeking help for.

The Rams have gone through their share of struggles as well. They narrowly beat the Cardinals in Week 1, and were noticeably outclassed by the Falcons and Cowboys in each of the following weeks.

This is a must-win situation for San Francisco. They need a strong showing to get themselves back on track, and they’re too good of a team to fall to 1-3.

Pick: San Francisco 27, St. Louis 13

Cortland Finnegan is an entertaining gnat should be fun to watch him ham it up for the cameras.
Frank Gore and Coach Harbaugh got into it last week about his lack of carries.
both teams only put 7 points last week —
Cowboys 31-7 Rams
Colts 27-7 49ers

I look for the Rams to put together a strong game and beat the 49ers 24-20 as their Front 4 on Defense raise cain with their Pass-Rush againt Kaepernick.. Watch for Robert Quinn to have a big game with a couple of Sacks and force some bad throws from Kapernick.. Also watch for CB janoris Jenkins with a big Game as he will be matched up with the only legitimate WR the 49ers have in A Boldin
Offensively, I see the Rams using TE’s Jared Cook and Lance Kendricks to do some damage to the 49ers Secondary who are down 2 Starters at Safety and CB .. Even 3rd CB Asamough is hurt as well as their Starting NT.. The 49ers Defense is not the same as last Season with the loses of 3 Free-Agents (Soapaga,Gholston,Ricky Jean-Francois)
