How the Giants stopped the run....

MBachCSN Mindi Bach
#49ers OC Greg Roman says the Giants "took extreme measures" in stacking the box against the run.

#49ers Roman: "Extremely loaded boxes. You gotta go to some high school fields to find that loaded of a box."

#49ers RB Frank Gore when asked if he had seen a a box as stacked a the Giants had: "My whole career" (laughs)

Gore: "Not like that, man. It was 10 men in the box. They were coming to stop the run."



WOW Talk about selling out to stop the run.
It was crazy. They had 8 - 9 guys like 2 - 3 yards from the LOS.

BS....He's played well all year.

I hope MORE teams put 10 in the box. ;-)
And we still broke off a long TD run!

That's elementary style game planning.
Thats the Giants really buying into the "Stop Gore and you stop the Niners" theory that has failed 8 times in 9 games.

Someone should have reminded the Giants that Tebow isn't the niners' quarterback.

That is their coaches personality. Very basic and don't stop doing something until it stops working. Coughlin thought winning this game would require a basic install and that 0 mistakes/fundamentals would win it.

What's awesome is that if you don't load the box, we will run.

They are trying to stop the Niners from last year's league wide game plan. You know it's true.

I love it. Keep doing it. If the Niners are gonna see ONE safety for the rest of the year, be prepared to see Alex put up 250+ yards and a couple TDs every week. Most teams don't have the D-Line that the Giants have.

Yeah, but I think they changed the strategy after Alex threw for 150 yards in the first half.

I know and we know they must have gotten REALLY scared when we gashed them with that run after they made the adjustment. If I were a coach, I would be thinking, "s**t, WTF do we do now?"
