DMac says you never know when you’ll need your star players, and the loss of Emmanuel Sanders could be devastating. Big Al says it’s time for the young players to step up, and DaeSean Hamilton & Courtland Sutton need to catch the ball.
Al & DMac agree it’s about winning games, not completing passes, and compare Case Keenum to Kyle Orton & Tim Tebow. Al says nobody believed in Tebow long-term, and maybe Case Keenum just had a special year.
Al says it’s time for the rest of the team to step it up, especially the Tight Ends. DMac asks Al how the Emmanuel Sanders injury complicates things, and Al says no receiver will know the playbook like Sanders did. DMac says George Kittle is the 49ers’ biggest playmaker, and Phillip Lindsay was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week.
