IN OUR DREAMSSS!!!!!!!!! Eli Manning is no Aaron Rodgers. Dropped balls by NY Giants and turnovers allowed the Niners to keep that game away. What Alex did was REQUIRED to give us a chance; he stepped up and did his job. Eli took the game down to the last play of the game until Justin Smith rained on his parade and secured a win for the second time. The first time was when he caused Maclin to fumble against the Eagles. What I'm really trying to say is, A Rodg is going to exploit our secondary much like Eli did. Not only is Alex going to have to do his job again, we will need multiple turnovers, sacks, and pressures to take Rodgers out of a rhythm, which I doubt will happen. Our defense is good enough to slow down Rodgers, but not to beat him the entire game. The ONLY thing that gives me ANY hope is that ANYTHING can happen IN the playoffs regardless of Smith's performance. We are good enough to beat the Pack only because of that phenomenon. Regular season matchup against the Packers would be a guaranteed loss for us, but not in the playoffs.
