I think New Orleans creates the worst match up problems for the Niners. i guess you can put Willis on Sproles ( like they did a couple years back with Reggie Bush) but the nightmare comes with Jimmy Graham and their 3 wide receiver sets. Its almost impossible to contain that because sooner or later one of them is going to hurt you bad.
I think the only hope comes with getting hands in Bree's face. It has to come up the middle too because he is so good a stepping into the pocket to hit his throwing lanes. Aside from the St Louis game where Chris Long just went berserk on the tackle and got 3 sacks, most of the games where the Saints lose is when the pressure gets to Brees. Have you to run a bunch of stunts and still be able to cover your run lanes.
Would be a fun game to watch the Niners against the Saints or the Packers. Wide open offense vs shut down defense.
