49ers At Bears: Is Tracy Porter The Real Deal?

No Flashbacks

Say it with me, Blaine Gabbert is the starting quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers.

Gabbert has shown some resurgence, and the 49ers are 1-2 with him as their starter. Blaine thus far has posted a stat line of: 767 yards / 4 TD / 3 INT in three games.

The Bears must remember what happened to them just over three years ago on Monday Night Football.

The Bears thought they had caught a break with 49ers starter Alex Smith out with an injury. What they did not expect was Colin Kaepernick.

Kaepernick lit the world on fire that night with 243 passing yards, and led the 49ers to a 32-7 onslaught of the Chicago Bears.

This time around the Bears must make sure that there are no flashbacks to that November day in 2012.

If the Bears fail to contain Gabbert then the running game will open up for the 49ers, and as of late the Bears have struggled to defend the run with their thin defensive line.

Look for the Bears to utilize various blitzes, along with personnel packages that will be suited to get after the quarterback and disrupt his flow.

Pernell McPhee is a force to be reckoned with. Lamarr Houston and Willie Young are having a resurgent second half of the season, look for the Bears to try to get the latter two more snaps this week.

Keep an eye out for how the Chicago Bears game plan for Gabbert and the 49ers aerial attack. If the Bears underestimate their opponent, they very well could leave Soldier Field feeling the same way they did three years ago.
