Among what we discuss, we talk about the Niners' 3-2 start and the expectation that fans had coming into the season and the disappointment following the loss in Seattle.
We talk about the performance of Colin Kaepernick so far and how the offense appears to have been scaled back, asking him to do more game managing like Alex Smith did.
I ask him about whether or not fans are at all bitter after seeing Smith lead the Chiefs to a 5-0 start.
I ask him about the perception that fans in San Francisco have of the Cardinals and go over how the teams match up and I try to get a prediction out of him, but he has learned not to try.
After he leaves, I talk about why I am so excited for this game and why I am not chalking this game up as a loss necessarily like I did to start the season.
What are the two things I want to see out of the defense? Listen and find out.
