i disagree with this logic

whoever wins is the better team
if lions beat the saints then they were the better team

let the chips fall where they may we just have to do our part

Not necessarily. Those teams could play 10 times straight and I'm pretty sure the Saints would win a larger percentage of them. It's any given Sunday. Any team can win, but I myself (along with probably most others) believe the Saints are the better team. That's probably what overthemiddle meant.

Want to see this team butt heads with the best so if they win, there's no doubt or excuses about how good of a team the 49ers are and if they lose, this team will know exactly what areas it needs to focus on in the offseason to improve and become a stronger contender next year.


pimp!!!!
if the saints want some come get some LETS GO!!!!!!!

If the Lions beat the Saints, then we would have to play a hot Lions team, IMO just as bad if not worse.
I'm honestly not that afraid of the Saints.

They'll be in our house again. Last year, we played them to the gun. Took a FG at the buzzer to beat us... and that was under SINGLETARY.

You're telling me we're not a better team a year later? Bring it on.
funny to see schwartz go ballistic when the refs blew a call, calling titus young out of bounds when he clearly was in for a td....lions were out of challenegs and had to settle for a field goal

I don't want us to play any tam we have already played. Tough to beat a team twice. Would rather play the one dimensional Saints.Every team we played twice was either a loss or a tough win.

They aren't one dimensional though. People just think that cuz they got Breezy...

Their running game is damn good.
I ain't scurred of the Saints.

after i read some things.. i now feel better bout playing the saints

IF the saints win.. which is very likely.. they will have a short week to travel across the country to play us in our house. so thats a big plus for us
we will have 2 whole weeks to rest and game plan on them.
their routes and all that will not be so amazing since they will be running on grass and who knows what kind of weather we will have... im thinking colder/foggy... but thats just a shot in the dark.. no evidence or research behind that lol its just that time of the year.

so the favor is in our hands.. we will have no good reason why we lose unless the refs blow a bunch of calls or something.

There were actually some very promising signs in that Lions-Saints game a month ago. Although they lost by 14, they outgained the Saints and dominated time of possession by 10 minutes. Of course, as usual, they beat themselves with dumb penalties. Hanson also missed 2 fgs. I don't think it will happen, but this team can definitely go in there and win. They are just as talented, if not moreso, and Stafford has been playing at Brees' level.

Holy ****. The Saints converted 56.7% of 3rd downs this year, probably an NFL record. No other team was above 48%. They are playing at such a high level that I think they'll actually be favored at SF. I hope they are, because that should give us a mental edge.

They also shattered by 400 the Rams' 2000 record for most yards in a season, and finished 3rd all time in scoring. This may be the greatest offense in NFL history. I think we'll need at least 24 points and probably 30+ to win.
