To be honest, I'm more scared of NO than GB.
All this talk about being able to beat GB is premature. I dunno if the Niners can beat NO.
were 1 win against the Rams away from being in great shape. NO is scary at the Superdome, but at Candlestick we can beat them. we almost beat them last year on MNF at the stick, and we sucked last year.
I think we CAN beat them. I just dunno if we WILL beat them.
What do the Niners do best? Stop the run. Play field position. Force teams to drive the length of the field and sustain offense without a running game.
Thats why they are #1 vs the run and # 20 (or so) vs the pass. Teams HAVE to pass between the 20's just to get in position to score. Thats why they give up more yards passing....the team they play ALWAYS has alot of green field in front of them.
The Niners bank on you not being able to sustain those drives several times a game and live off forcing you to make a mistake while playing conservative on O so you never give up easy scores or field position (+26 TO diff.).
Well....while the Saints CAN run the ball, they don't NEED to run it. They can live all day on quick passes to simulate the run game and get the ball off before the Smith brothers from Mizzou can get there.
Who scares me the most? Darren Sproles...possibly the only RB in the NFL who can outrun both Willis and Bowman.
