Jerod Mayo checks in for this week' Chalk Talk. On the docket - how to stop the three-man set in the backfield. The 49ers have a lot of dangerous weapons in their backfield, so how do you stop someone like Colin Kaepernick from breaking a long run like he did last week?
Mayo shares one of the Patriots mantras, brilliant in its simplicity - "do your job." If everyone follows their responsibilities, an entire side of the field should never be left open and Kaepernick won't be able to run for a 50 yard TD like last week.
The 49ers are going to throw a lot of different looks at the Patriots, and they'll utilize some big bodies and power football. If the Patriots are going to win a second big game in as many weeks, everyone is going to have to 'do their job.'
