>> hello and welcome to the red and gold zone. i'm your host, jason dumas. it every day this week at 10. 45 kron 4 will be the place to be for all things niners as we get you ready for the nfc championship game. the niners will look to punch their ticket to the super bowl for the second time in 3 years. standing in the way that pesky team from the city just 6 hours south of us call the city of angels pesky because they've becn the source of a lot of the bay area's frustration in the sports world in the past calendar year, the lakers beat the warriors in the plane last season. it the dodgers beat the giants. as i hate to remind you in the nlds back in
10:46 pm
october, hopefully the 3rd time is a charm here in the bay. the niners were back at their hq today prepping for the nfc championship game. >> mondays are typically reserved for film review meetings and treatment. the biggest news of the day is trent williams and that ankle injuries. team has called an ankle sprain. kyle shanahan said >> there could be components to that injury, which would point some of ankle from ankle ligaments that he's in the most always the best tackle in the league for players like that. >> i he the best regardless of position. one of the best that is so course it would be a huge loss if he can't play on sunday, especially against a rams team with aaron donald and von miller. as you can see ahat pass rush is something different. as for the match up the coaching staff, they've just started studying the tape. but really with the
10:47 pm
rams, there isn't much new to study at this point. >> we've been through this so over the last 2 years. so it's not much seeing the 3rd time as it was a second time. but also as the first time, you know, just what the coaches that's been the same i don't think there's many there's not much things we can surprise them with and staying with them. what doesn't which i think is kind of the most fun way as 2 really good teams was a really good football game you can't really trust each other. you got to go out and got to go out and beat somebody. >> down in tinseltown to rams were doing the same thing as the niners. a lot of prep where they are coming off of one of its best wins of the season and they very well could have been the squad to send tom brady off into the sunset for good that walk-off field goal. but they haven't had much luck with the niners liked at all. san francisco had beaten the rams 6 straight
10:48 pm
times. most recently in the final week of the regular season. the niners came back from 17 to 3 to clinch a playoff berth. the rams, in fact, could have won the nfc west with a win. sean mcvay those kyle shanahan extremely well and vice versa. they worked together before and shanahan. he respects all that. the niners bring to the table. >> they do a great job. they have excellent personnel there. they're really well you can see and they can do an excellent job of applying pressure with a four-man rush. there's a real by and a commitment to a philosophy what they play with their the way that they play with their front 4. i chris considered does an outstanding job with those guys and then they've got great personnel. they've got great speed on the second level. i think war is one of the best players in this, you know, in this league, especially at this because at that position, then there are x on the back in early sound to a great job. all 11 tack on this defense side and jimmie ward, a phenomenal player. obviously both sen armstead have been outstanding. i've been really impressed with
10:49 pm
what sampson, jones on the interior. so they've got great players. they've got a great scheme. they're really sound and they play with the relentless fanatical ever every single snap. and you can see there's a real commitment to a philosophy and you earn every yard. you get again, some those previous you know, they they found a way to get it done. and a lot of instances, you know, those second games, each of the last few seasons have come down to the wire. but >> they're going to get any excuses. i mean, they've great job. they found a way to win that window of time and every single game is its own separate entity. you know, there's going to be a lot of similarities in terms of the players, the personnel, some of the schemes, but they do a great job playing our best ball for full 4 quarters. and if we need another extra quarter to do that and so be it. >> all right. so this is like the trilogy of a title fight. ali frazier got the ward pack. yeah, we're alice. you get the point. all of them were must-see tv in. this will be the same. their storylines galore. let's check out the top 5 starting with 5. the coaching matchup. kyle
10:50 pm
shanahan sean make they there you see bo baby face there back in 2000, 13, both were with the washington football team mcvay coach. the tight nds for washington and kyle shanahan. he was the offensive coordinator. they played each other a lot. get this 10 times. but as i said earlier in the show, this guy hasn't had much success. he's 3, 7 verse kyle shanahan and shannon have won 6 in a row. in fact, john mcveigh is sean mcmahon dead. >> he used to be. >> with the forty-niners on their staff going like i've never seen so many of the opposing team's fans. thank you for bringing us topic. >> number 4, the fans in southern california forty-niners fans are everywhere. that was matt stafford's wife saying how jarring it was seeing all this red in so fy stadium. expect that again this week.
10:51 pm
forty-niners fans are all over the state la rams. the rams don't have much of a presence in that city right now. number 3. the rams defensive line. a bunch of studs on that line headlined by aaron donald, who you saw just there getting that sack. >> and von miller, they had 3 total sacks against tom brady and the bucs last week. they have 5 sacks in the postseason. that is good for 3rd of all teams. the forty-niners, by the way, are first with 10. but, you know, they're just our study. it von miller, aaron. donald, when you hear those names, you think of all pros to the best in the game. so they are going to get after the forty-niners, especially if trent williams is hobbled in that game. all right. number 2. >> coming up right about now, we've got the run game, which is paramount for the forty-niners. >> 137 yards per game in the
10:52 pm
playoffs. they are doing that on the ground have deebo samuel elijah mitchell. here's a live view right here. getting to the edge quick. kyle shanahae has said all season long, 30 attempts is his goal. when they get the 30 attempts, they usually win and they've been running it well, all season long. elijah mitchell, just a rookie sixth-round pick. but he's playing like a seasoned veteran. and then you know what their quarterback he was in the muck it up to look at jimmy g in his hometown in chicago earlier this season. this is the key for the niners they have to control the run game as we see deebo samuel right here. deebo is like weapon x in the nfl this year. and number one story line of the game for me is jimmy garoppolo. we need good, jim. we can't have these play from jimmy escaping the pocket. just throw it away. don't force feed it into george kittle for a turnover. jimmy g
10:53 pm
is averaging 139 pass yards per game. that's second to last in the playoffs. right in front of jalen hurts. plays like these have hunted haunted. i'm sorry. the forty-niners all season long. all postseason long. they ran away with that cowboys game. then you have good jimmy g this was against the rams. the final week of the season, bringing them back, getting them in the playoffs is like jacqueline hide. you get the good you get the bad. we don't need jimmy g just to be tom brady reincarnated. just don't turn the ball over. make sound plays. feed the ball to deebo samuel elijah mitchell in the run game. get it to george kittle in the pass game and they will be ok, no, know throws. so those in a 5 story lines for the game on sunday. my top 5, i'm sure there will be some other ones and people in my twitter mentions telling the upper got about something. but they do that. well, the win this game. all right. we
10:54 pm
still have more for you here on the red and gold zone after the break. >> we continue to break down the ticket so by stadium and we're calling up the ramp at the cowards. they are.
