it's hard for people to know how much their accident case is worth. let our injury attorneys help you get the best result possible. >> hello and welcome to another edition of the red and gold zone. i'm your host jason dumas, championship preparations continued in santa clara today. the buzz is palpable and it's impossible for the players to tune everything out. they hear the noise. they are excited, but they still have a job to do and they have to be laser-focused him. they are and the work this week. i mean, it's pretty straightforward as you see jimmy g there. this team has formed an identity. they know exactly what they have to do
to win. they also know their opponent inside and out now we spoken at nauseum this week on the relationship between the 2 head coaches. we know sean mcvay kyle shanahan. they used to be co-workers in our nation's capital. now their rivals and it's been a pretty one-sided rivalry on shanny side. so much so that someone asked mcveigh if kyle was in his head something kyle shanahan, they really think was very appropriate. a question like that is. >> just giving sean and myself way too much credit. i'm or coaches. thank watch what's going on on that field and some of the players out there and the people that are competing and i think that it's about shot and i i mean, i know he doesn't feel that way and he knows i don't feel that way. the fact we're here and that we've earned the opportunity to play in this game. >> saw some so definitely, you know, i think guys are i don't want to say more locked them,
but there's a different type of focus. everyone's doing a lot. you know, whether it's things on lives, everything just kind of amplified at this moment. but guys doing a great job. just focus on getting better every single day locked in the meetings. i'm locked into getting better. his focus on the game plan. and i know our boys be very ready to come sunday. i'm ready to roll to george. >> meanwhile, down and sunny la, so beautiful down there and just beautiful weather. the rams continued to prep. this rams team is loaded with big name scott players up in down the roster on paper. they certainly have more talent than the forty-niners. some people might get mad at me. but it is what it is and what i meant to say up there with star players. but what about this matchup? is it that the rams have struggled with aaron donald? he couldn't tell you, but he is ready to put those losses behind him. and he insists that things this time around will be different.
>> the past is the past. so this is this is a different type of football years going notice we know this is this is one game within the super bowl against the opponent both we used to. we know this, but we just got to play we've got to find a way to finish. they they beat us in ways that, well, i'm not going run talk about it, but they did this my mindset is there's no way we're going to lose this game. deafening. these, you know, stu. remains super light means super >> and do what i got to do is we can do, you know, was ultimately go. i don't know. i don't want to zoom in here after teasing you. >> you know what? they sound like? they sound like a dude trying to get their girl back. we're going to be different this time around a promise it will see on sunday. all right. coming up, we have a chat with the radio voice of the rams will also happens to be a bay area native. we'll be right back. welcome back to the red
radio voice of the rams for espn, 7.10, los angeles and he grew up in the bay area. a niners fan, our very own kate rooney chatted with jb about what he expects to see from 2 teams. he so well. >> the current win streak in the series kind of a senator and the forty-niners county this past season tribute that to why the niners been able to get over on the rams so much in the recent history of the series. >> okay. i think they're really good team. a really good roster with excellent coaches and they know the rams forward and backward. not just because they play twice here in the same division, but because their coaches go all the way back to kind of their beginnings and come off the same coaching tree. so it's it's a bit like playing yourself in the mirror. i think when sean mcvay and the rams and kyle shanahan and the niners get together and to their credit. more times than not, san francisco's been the more committed to more physical. the more determined team they've been able to play, keep away and limit the opportunities that mcvay and goff used to get and that
mcveigh and now matthew stafford have been able to get. i don't think any of the 6 windsor flukes. i the forty-niners to my i have been very convincing. if anything, it's just a puzzle as to why they haven't played every other team in the national football league the way that they take on l a >> what do you expect the rams to do in terms of adjustments when it comes to how they have played the forty-niners the last couple times out. we think we can expect to see this time around maybe a little bit different. >> well, i really don't think that there are many wrinkles that either coach coordinator or offense can throw at each i really do think that this is one of those who does that matter most to who can rise to the occasion who can deliver on those 2 or 3 turning points per game. and then when you do get that opportunity to put the game out of reach and we all know the rams had a couple of those at the end of the 1st half and certainly at the end of regulation in week 18 who's got the right play call and the best execution to make sure that the opponent doesn't get the chance. yeah, the rams
have to find a solution to deebo samuel who has one games receiving rushing and even throwing against the mets. no mystery. and we'll spend most of this week trying to come up with better solutions for those questions. but in those 4 quarters in those 3 hours on sunday, this is the will power game. i truly believe that. >> another thing to watch for is whether there will be another sea of red at sofi stadium this weekend. that's something that the room is really want to boy and the 49 er fans have. we're pretty proud of after that week, 18 matchup. what are you expecting? just from someone who is into every game the last several seasons. >> well, i think for the past 6 years we've had to settle into the reality of what professional football looks in my los angeles right now for this generation. and it's at once thrilling and concerning an unnerving but also advantageous at san francisco deserves credit. the forty-niners faithful i've known in my entire life. i know what they're capable of. their one of the proudest,
most storied franchises in the entire game. and this means a lot to them now for los angeles. i think there's a challenge here and there's a response. and i do think that here in late maybe the fan base is in a different position in terms of travel and public health and all the other excuses they probably offered. but i actually take a longer lens on this case. and as i'm the parent of young children, you can understand this. i think coming back to la after a 2 decade absence. the charge of the organization and to me as a member of it is, how do we engage and inspire? and generate loyalty from that next generation of fans. and so i've got boys 5, 2, believe me. i know where they stand and i see what their peers are interested in. but it is very much a factor in this game and all finished by saying these are the moments that matter. if you want to win over the southland, if you want to be la is dominant sports franchise. when you have san francisco at so fi stadium for the nfc championship game,
that's when you need to back a lot riding on this match up a lot. i going to be on the game on sunday to you on. thank you so much for joining us to help. >> give us this preview. and we look forward call >> thank you for the invitation k and all my best to you and your family and my family and loved ones in the bay area as well. >> great interview kate. all right. here we go. baby forty-niners rams 3.30, sunday. so fy stadium in inglewood, california. >> we will have all the highlights after that one and see how it all went down. now, guys, i've been asked all week long for my prediction this sunday in my heart. i want to forty-niners to win. i want the best for my bay area brother in. i want to see you guys. happy. but in my mind, it's going a different way. good thing for niners fans before you guys cursed me out on twitter, instagram in my dms, i picked the forty-niners
to lose week 17 to the rams and not even make the playoffs and they prove me wrong. let's see if they'll prove me wrong again. i do not see san francisco winning this game. i think it will be a close one for sure. i think the rams will prevail. i think they have the better quarterback and there's no rhyme or reason to this. i just think it is hard to beat a team 7 straight times, especially when you've been reminding that team all week that they've lost to the forty-niners 6 straight. we're going to get their revenge. i hope i'm wrong. we have a good night. go niners.
