all week. what's their status? >> reporter: i'm sure diggs, you know, who was sick earlier in the week, and you know, i mean this time of the year the flu will go through a clubhouse or locker room, and a lot of guys get it, and i think he was expected to play, and then adam thielen, really the star receiver in the win in new orleans, i guess someone stepped on him in practice, and he required stitches in ankle. it's one of the things during the week, he said i'm playing, but you know, whether or not he's 100%, and that's a big part of the offense, because if the 49ers can keep the vikings out of the air, and make them a little bit one dimensional at least, you know, obviously that's a benefit to their defense if they can do that. >> that cut on his ankle, and it will be interesting today
7:48 am
for him. let's talk about minnesota coming off the incredible o.t. win over the saints, and a lot of folks said cousins can bring it in a big game, but i guess he proved them wrong, the overtime drive, talk about that, joe. >> reporter: that's where he made the big throw to thielen that may be the best throw he made in his career, and you're right, you know, he gets that wrap that you can't win the big one, and then you win it, and you know, then people cannot say that about you anymore, and there is some history there because pretty well documented when cousins started out in washington, his offensive coordinator was kyle shanahan. he was not the starter then. robert griffin iii was, but i don't know if there's anyone who has spent more time with offensive coordinators and quarterbacks. i would think they know each other well. >> two other guys are george
7:49 am
and jimmy. going nuts today? >> reporter: well, you know, again, it's kind of as ki ttle goes, it's the good luck weapon, and good luck stopping him. not many have been able to do. don't forget samuels and sander. kendrick borne for that matter. they have been getting contributions from everybody this year, and it's the running back by committee, and rahm as been the guy lately, and you will see kevin coleman, and they want to be balanced on offense. it's funny. shanahan said something funnily this week that is true. he said people want to ask us, are you a running team or passing team, and he said we are both, and what is kind of funny, i know it sounds funny, but you have to pass to run and you have to run to pass, and everybody kind of laughed, but
7:50 am
it's true. >> they feed one another, and talk about the stadium, and what do you think it's going to be like down there? the last few games they have played there have gone down to the final seconds, and it felt like a college game. >> reporter: yeah, but the stadium finally feels like it's developed a little bit of a soul. you know the seattle game they lost, and the arizona game, that they won, and the green bay game, it's really starting to feel like, well, okay this place, the people are not in one of the greatest lines ever written scott from the chronicle calling the fancy seat in the sun where you can go underneath and not be in the sun, and he calls them the people who were down in the tequila bunkers, and you know, i don't think anyone will be in the tequila bunkers for this one it should be as lively has it has ever been for a game let's not forget hosting the college national championship
7:51 am
and a super bowl, but it should be for the 49ers, the liveliest crowd they have ever seen. >> a lot of people getting ready, including you, joe, and we will check you out later here on ktvu. >> reporter: let's keep it going and do this next week. >> i hear miami is nice in february. let's see if we can head that way. joe fonzi, ktvu sports. thanks as always, and let's get the game-day forecast now. i think you may want to bring a light jacket, but should be clear. >> you do not need the rain jacket or the umbrella. it will be a dry one, and it could be cool and breezy. the sun should be shining in time for the afternoon game. outside the doors this morning, a different story, and wake up with mostly cloudy skies, and you can see rain on the lens there, and a few remaining showers in place through the morning hours before we return to dry weather for the afternoon, and a look at the
7:52 am
rain fall amounts with this latest system, and not a lot, and don't want to complain, but we could definitely use more, and it looks like port reyes you're the winner there at .19. san francisco, not too bad. .15 for you there. and storm tracker 2 showing not a lot going on out there. we move in closer, and we have some, looking like it's moving in to the east bay shore of berkeley, emeryville, and maybe just the edge of the bay bridge, this looks like it's moving out, and into the santa curz mountains, and by noontime or so, partly cloudy and dry, and if you're going up to the sierra, there's a wind advisory, and you don't have to worry about the snow as far as travel concerns, and no advisory issues for that, but there is a wind advisory, and that could impact some of the ski resorts today, and it goes
7:53 am
until the afternoon, and here's a view of what we expect come sunday morning, and partly cloudy skies, and notice what is going on to the north, and this will eventually drop in, by about sunday afternoon and evening, and we may get add round of a few light scattered showers, and again, it does not look like a big deal. here's monday morning, starting off dry, and take a look at what happens monday night, and we are unsettled with the on and off light rain type of stuff going on for the next several days, and wednesday and thursday, looking like they could definitely be the best two days for some more widespread rain, and high tides this morning, 11:07, tomorrow, 11 54, and monday, 12:44, and the king tides are with us, and we are likely to see is a little bit of flooding during the hours along the coastline, inside of the bay, and our low- lying roadways, sidewalks, trails, and be careful out there. also a high surf advisory starting later this morning until tomorrow afternoon, and
7:54 am
for dangerous surf for our swimmers and surfers. temperatures this morning, warmer with the clouds out there, and dealing with fog in the north bay, and along the valley floor, take it easy. 48 now in downtown san francisco and oakland, and for the afternoon, mid- to upper 50s, and for the north bay, the central bay, and the south bay, and we will go to 58 degrees for mountain view, and upper 50s for santa clara and san jose. the extended forecast there, overnight lows, don't change much, and the afternoon highs, not much either, and we do have that possibility of light rain coming our way, sort of in and out of the next few days before the better chance comes on wednesday. >> rosemary, thank you. there's a new way to get around oakland, how you can rent an electric moped. it's a giant sign that has been a local landmark in the south bay since 1873, and now a san jose appliance store is shutting its doors. why western appliance said it's going out of business.

8:00 am
weekend show. we will see you over there. go niners. >> gameday. the nfc westernship division, 49ers ready, rested, and theoretically revved up to take on the vikings fresh off their upset of the saints in new orleans. >> i'm not sitting there going against kirk, and i think that's totally overrated. >> they do have history. kyle shanahan was cousin's offensive coordinator for cousin's first two years in the league in washington, and the vikings acquired cousins to be their franchise quarterback, and he's one impressive notch in his belt, the win last week against the good saints team in a hostile environment.
8:01 am
>> oh, best believe he has his game face on. former stanford star and minnesota viking defensive back to talk about the meeting. 49ers and vikings at levi's stadium. ♪ if you remember the days when going to the game was a regular occurrence, you may remember when they cut records, that was the '80s, and how this chapter of the playoff history turns out very much still to be determined. hello again, everyone. i'm joe fonzi.
8:02 am
>> that's an oldie but a goodie. you brought a smile to my face. >> we said it used to be a regular occurrence, and first time in levi's stadium history they are hosting the playoff game. >> what's been the knock with levi's stadium, there's no soul there. that's because there's not been a lot of huge moments, and that's all changed this year, joe, as it prepares for its first playoff game. >> if you notice the end zones, and they painted them red like the old days, back to the throwback days of the song we were hearing, and maybe they are trying to bring the old candlestick vibe to levi's. >> you have been seeing it build with the momentum, the crowds are bigger, the noise, all of that stuff meaning playoff football, and particularly good time for the 49ers, and they have healthy vocal cords, the 49ers have help all over the roster. 53 guys practicing, full participation this week. >> the guys they were most
8:03 am
thinking about. deford, alexander, and good news, some of them wearing the blue jerseys meaning don't touch me in practice, but they are expected to be available for the game. >> you know, obviously always bringing the energy, and having him on the field, it's a good feeling, and you know what i mean, having them running out there with the team, encouraging. >> and it's confidence boost. it's been awhile since we have had them all on the field together. >> you have the linebackers, and you have the edge, and it's fun to watch. >> all right, you know, you're always looking for story angles, one leading up to the game. jimmy garoppolo, he has never played in a playoff game, but i have to tell you, the way the season came down, and you were at all of the games, you saw it. it's a playoff like atmosphere, nothing that will be that monumentally different in the
8:04 am
game they saw against the saints, the seahawks, the rams, very much a playoff attitude. >> the only difference is lose and go home. there's no question that it put as different vibe on the whole thing it feels like they have been playing playoff games for the last 2 months, and there could not have been a bigger one so far in the regular season than the week 17 game they played in seattle when there was so much about stake that they are benefiting from right now. >> just jimmy garoppolo's demeanor and the way he conducts himself under pressure, i have to believe he feels good about where he is at and the team as well. >> we have had a couple of late games this season that felt like playoff games. starting with seattle here, baltimore, new orleans, all of those games, and we said it throughout the season, i think we will see it. playoffs, you have to love it. >> he has played good games, and jimmy earned the respect how he played, worked, and i think the guys really appreciate him as a man.
8:05 am
>> i don't think it will be any different, feeling the same size, and ball the same size, and it's fine. >> a lot of things don't change. they have played five playoff teams, and you can see the names where the 49ers had great numbers. >> we remember how the two losses ended with last-second kicks. >> up to enough, and i think jimmy garoppolo is ready for the challenge. you to feel particularly happy. there's a lot of first-time guys. you think of jimmy obviously, but kittle and other guys, but how about joe staley. reaching extreme highs and then lows after that, and now 74 is
8:06 am
back and healthy looking good for the postseason again. >> his 13th year, and six probowl seasons during that time. this year he missed eight weeks with a broken leg, three weeks with a broken finger, battled through all of that there could not be anybody happier, and a guy who thought at times about not coming back, and as you said, hung in there through the highs and lows, and a little bit of fun talk together media this week. >> hello. >> what is it like to be back in the situation? >> very exciting. [ laughter ] very exciting. >> the very epitome of the grizzle. i love that he shows up for the interview session with a full uniform on. he is one of the coolest guys, and i'm really on a personal note happy for that guy, and he's been happy through the
8:07 am
highs and lows, and maybe a lot more lows. the other story line in the game, the head coach of the 49ers, who used to be the offensive coordinator of the quarterback for the vikings. >> i think that, you know, people are playing up that angle, and there's mike shanahan with his young up-and- coming son, and the relationship with cousins on the left, and shanahan when he was a quarterback coach and offensive coordinator, but i think he's playing it smart. he is very much playing down how well he knows kirk cousins. >> remember there was talk about cousins ending up in san francisco, and they signed garoppolo instead. shanahan talked about if all the familiarity really means anything. >> down playing the whole thing. >> right. >> i think it's overrated. it's not overrated if the guy does not have much tape on him. everyone is trying to guess, and you can talk better than people guess, but i was with him for 2 years, and other guys
8:08 am
were playing. i'm not sitting there going against kirk, and i think that's totally overrated. >> i have been fortunate to be around great coaches, and kyle is certainly one of them. he has shown that through the years since we have gone our separate ways, and just have the utmost respect for him as a coach and person. >> obviously they are both playing it cool, but i think shanahan is playing it smart because i would bet you he knows more than he is letting on. there's little things that maybe cousins is insecure about or doesn't feel are strong parts of his game that shanahan knows. >> who doesn't an offensive coordinator spend more time with than quarterbacks even though he was the backup to rgiii. they have spent a lot of tight together. >> in the meantime, we have a lot more for you at the mercedes benz sports weekend. the niners are good in one thing, strength on strengths.
8:09 am
our in studio guests is one of our favorites. hank williams talking playoff football. he has his game face on, and he's ready for the playoffs. we will be right back.
8:10 am
8:11 am
i saw a lot of things on
8:12 am
twitter saying if the nfl wants to change the season in 17 games, they should ask me, and i say no. my body hurts, and i needed that break. >> one of the quirks of the season, emmanuel sanders because he started the year with the broncos was traded to the 49ers before the broncos got their bye, and he came after they already had their bye, and he played 17 games this year, and you can see what he thinks about that. tank williams, one of our local pros and favorite guys, with us, and we talked about the big three that are healthy for the 49ers on defense, and how important is the bye week? you have had four playoff games under your belt, how important is the bye week? >> the body is weary during the season. remember when romo went down to cabo for the week? that's how much we look forward to it. the man's body was worried. now they have a matchup with the vikings, i can't wait.
8:13 am
>> i have to ask you, everybody is basically celebrating the return of the likes of tart and deford and the guys who were injured, and how effective can we really expect them to be with that long of a layoff, and rest is nice, but differences always rest or rest? >> i would rather take rests than rust. >> it would take a series or two to get back in the swing of things, but all hands on deck. the vikings' offense was clicking . they will come into levi's confident. >> here's a graphic to look at. the one area where they are the most closely matched up, and you look at scoring offense, scoring defense, and takeaways, takeaways is a big one. both like to run the ball, and they both do it well, and something has kind of got to
8:14 am
give there. >> one thing that i'm not a big numbers guy. i don't know how much talk there is for this part of the season. it's interesting to note. i want to get your opinion, tank, the vikings are number one in the nfl in defense and tight ends. they have only allowed one touchdown all season long to a tight end, and conversely, the 49ers have that guy, george kittle. >> the vikings are good. the defense has fallen, and man, not too many times do you face a man like george kittle. >> all pro, george kittle. >> i'm sure the vikings will try to come up with a game plan to take him away. sanders was playing ball, and the niners can run the ball effectively. it's not like they are a one- trick pony. >> kittle was asked about the
8:15 am
viking defenders who handled the tight ends well this season. >> they have a lot of different coverages, and they do a good job. they focus on the tight ends, and i mean, i'm just whatever coach shanahan has schemed up, i'm going to do that. attack like we have been, and let the game take care of itself. >> the good news, another whole segmented with tank to talk -- >> just warming up! >> he will stay with us as the mercedes benz sports weekend continues. we will talk about another aspect of the game he feels the 49ers must control if they expect to win. jimmy garoppolo got overdell louse with his celebration, and it cost him in the pocket book. we will talk about that with the mercedes benz sports weekend continues. he can afford it.

this is cool, crisp, 8 degrees above 0. >> great jack whittaker, the first playoff game that the 49er franchise ever won, outdoors in bloomington, minnesota. that was december 27, 1970, and the 49ers won 17-14, and they went on to play the dallas cowboys in the championship game. we remember how it ended three years in a row. the first playoff win in franchise history. >> looked freezing cold, too,
8:19 am
and i can remember. i'm old enough to remember the pregame hype for that, the 49ers from california, they will not be able to handle the cold. zero chance against the purple people eaters, and your thoughts about how you see it sizing up. >> mornings i think if the niners can establish the run game, they have a good chance. the vikings ran 20 more plays than the saints. >> that's hard to believe. >> that's ball control against the best run defense, one of the best run defense in the game. if the niners can establish the run, get a lead, and then you have a healthy d4 coming back, getting cousins, and shanahan has the blueprint to frustrate cousins, come on, now, niners fans will be going crazy at levi's. >> here's the thing they have to do. the vikings have dalvin cook, one of the best, and according to to what you say, if you can make the vikings one
8:20 am
dimensional, stop him. >> last thing you want to do is see dalvin cooking on the field. they will be commit to the run. they had 136 rush yards against the saints, and i mean they didn't really have a good average. the saints averaged more yards than the vikings, but they are going to continue to pound cook because they want to take the pressure off cousins. if you can force cousins to put the team on his back to win the game, throw it around, and you know who is looking in the secondary, sherman is ready for the soundbite. >> you talk about the game most of us saw. cousins against the saints with his first-ever career playoff victory, and what about the defensive backfield, now healthy for the 49ers. the front four, and in the first eight games, had like 22 sacks. dominate, and a lot of measure on the quarterbacks, and how do you think he will do? >> it's one of those things where the vikings went into the game against the saints, and i thought they were going to get pounded because they were beat up in the secondary, yet drew brees could not throw the ball.
8:21 am
this week, we hear diggs is stick, and thielen just had an ankle injury. it's not going to be easy. they are getting riled up, and they have confidence playing in one of the toughest stadiums you can play in, and levi's stadium needs to come alive, the fans need to get behind their team and show what the number one team plays like. >> if they can do that, they will win. >> to the other side, you have to take care of the football, drew brees finding that out, his only fumble of the year in that game. jimny garoppolo, how do you expect him to perform. >> what i expect, shanahan will be stubborn and do what he does. the run will always give, you know, take the pressure off your quarterback. if you're able to establish the run, open up the past lanes for my man over the middle, taking the shots over the top with
8:22 am
sanders. the vikings don't have the recipe to stop the offense. if you're not able to run the ball and jimmy g. has to take control of the game, you get pressure. the vikings have monsters on their defensive line, too. neil is like a mutant. that dude is built like an action figure, and if you get him coming around the edge, i'm telling you, jimmy g.'s head will be on swivel. make sure you get four or five yards of play, get the play action going. >> i wanted to ask you, last year, obviously prior to his injury. jimmy garoppolo lost to the vikings in the start, and had a pick 6 thrown against him, and quotes out of minneapolis, they have garoppolo's number, do those things mean anything? obviously you have been in a playoff game ourself, do they go by the wayside once you tee off? >> the one thing i will say, everything is heightened in a playoff game.
8:23 am
i want to bring up games that don't relate to this one, but if you saw the texans and bills, allen playing well in the first three quarters, and the fourth quarter, and he was doing uncharacteristic plays i have never seen him do in the playoff situation. if this dude can take control, and he can guide the offense, and shanahan can stay within himself, not doing too much, i don't think the outside noise that the players are talking and leading up to the game that will affect them. they will play good ball. >> can you guide us the rest of the way and stick around to the end? >> i gotcha. >> we appreciate it. the guru will be here. one thing that is the product of a good team when things start going for you, people look at your assistants and saying i wonder what kind of head coach they may be. we are coming back with more on the mercedes benz sports weekend, getting ready for the niners and vikings.

8:27 am
highlights and interviews the day brings us. >> speaking of jason, also known as the guru, because the fantasy season is over, we have now tasked you with some very important information, which this is very important to the 49ers what is going on. >> every year when you're good and the patriots can attest to this, the assistant coaches get looked at, and the 49ers have had one of the best defense in the nfl all season long, and of course, robert, as we all know, this past saturday, a week ago interviewed for the head coaching job with the cleveland browns, and he's one of a handful of candidates to do so. you can remember he kind of burst on the scene for a household name for a lot of folks down in la when they cut to him, and his defense held the rams 0 for 11 on 3rd and 4th downs in the game, and saleh interviewed for the head coaching job earlier this week, and he's not going to say hutch. he's focused on the vikings, but here's saleh talking about
8:28 am
the experience, and then kyle shanahan, the head coach, rooting for him, talking as well. >> i will be honest, i'm very grateful for cleveland for coming out here and their hospitality and that, but i'm so locked in on minnesota. >> pretty confident with how saleh did. he's unbelievably impressive when anyone wants to interview him, just like when i did, and if that's what they are looking for, i know they will be pumped with what they saw. >> yeah, and saleh does give good interviews, and you saw the energy. reminding me of a guy we have on the set. that kind of energy -- >> energy is infectious. we live in a social media age where everyone has seen saleh on camera. if they can get that hot in cleveland, maybe they can turn it around. >> you had an interesting comment what he brings to the party. >> he's that dude. he brings the energy, and he has the niners playing for him, and he motivates everyone who is son the stadium and on that sideline with him, and i mean, once he gets the crowd going
8:29 am
and the players going, they are tough to beat. >> leaving you with one more thing before we say good-bye. garoppolo lighter in the wallet this week because of what he did after the seattle game. you just won the nfc west, clinching home field throughout the playoffs, why not let it fly in the stands, and he was fined $7,017. tell me how the nfl came up with that number. there's more to the story about that ball he threw. >> just a reaction to being fined $7,000 and then finding out it was caught by a san jose fan who drove to seattle. >> that's pretty accurate. i thought i saw the guy. i was not trying to be a star, i was trying to throw to that specific guy, and he made a great catch on it. i was glad it was a san francisco fan who taught that. >> when you're grinning ear-to- ear about a $7,000 fine, that's like 43 cents for me, man. >> absolutely.
8:30 am
>> for jason, joe, and the tank williams, we will see you next time on the mercedes-benz sports weekend. >> we are fox sports! >> today, at assembly hall, early conference matchup between ohio state and indiana. >> ohio state is always a difficult matchup for any team. >> washington, bingo! bingo, bingo! >> indiana has tremendous size and depth along the line. their guards have outstanding firepower and we've got to be ready for that. >> alley-oop by trayce jackson-davis! >> they won three in a row, can they get back on track against indiana?
