"Do we really want the 49ers?"
Comments that are intellectual. Even the ones that fear NO more don't make it so automatic:
"our Giants would fare better if they played San Fran over Green Bay. But when you mentioned the whole 6 days rest and flying across the country thing, as would definitely be the case, I'm not so sure anymore. Showing up in San Fran bruised and tired against what you accurately said would be a well rested San Fran team could be disaster. They did fairly well against Green Bay, the best out of all the teams who lost to them. I think they would actually stand a better chance against them in a shoot out then against San Fran in a slug-fest. We would probably be a strict air attack offense against San Fran unless we got the run established against their obviously excellent run defense. Packers however are banged up, and I think Bradshaw could get almost 100 yards against them, combined with Eli's elite playoff and clutch passing, and that means to me I would rather see Green Bay then San Fran. Packers are a sitting duck, the most vulnerable 15-1 team I have seen, IMO. Let someone else take care of the '9ers."
I've lived in NY for most of my life after leaving SF......after many years post SF/NYG rivalry faded I started to show respect and root for NYG where appropriate.
If SF were to go down against anyone but NYG, I might support them in their playoff run.
