I'm really not seeing it.
In fact, I'll take the opposite point of view. I don't think the Packers or Saints are built to beat a team like the 49ers in the playoffs.
In January, throwing the ball 50 times with a sieve of a defense will not win you games. Controlling the trenches on both sides of the ball and winning the turnover battle is what wins games.
The Packers and Saints will be fighting an upfield battle should they visit San Francisco in January.
1 word: domes. (at least guaranteed for the super bowl)
