They included the niners to get more hits... Even the giants players would have to admit that the packers and saints were by far the strongest and most complete teams heading into the playoffs. And if anything clay Mathews got confused and thought he was on the niners when he talked about giving the game away. Giants beat packers through a war of attrition in the trenches, the giants beat the niners through bonehead mistakes and gifts... If no one lined up as a punt returner during kw's mistakes, we win the game, if the refs call plays correctly we win the game... The giants in there hearts know that and that is why they only responded to clay Mathews. They've kept their mouths shut for the most part when it comes to talking about that niners game because they knew they won the lottery in terms of luck that day.
And whit didn't say anything about the giants, he just reiterated what we all knew... After the pack and saint were gone, the niners were the most feared team in the NFC and played a championship style of football... Except for the whole punt return part.
