Motivation is an irrelevent concept by now. Nobody who isn't already motivated to that max makes it as far as the 49ers this season. If you are starving and someone gives you a seven course meal, you don't need a motivational speech to get you psyched up to eat it.
As our coach says, the best defense will win the game.
Can you take anything from playing at the 49ers stadium in the regular season last year?
For the guys who have been there, I guess the one thing you can take away is the field conditions. With their grass, you need a certain spike length. I think guys that have played there realize it and are more prepared for the field conditions. That actually means a lot in what we do.
WR Robert Meachem:
What do you think about this challenge in San Francisco?
"This is going to be a great challenge. Their defense is very good. They play well together. It's not going to be one of those high-scoring games, because both defenses play well. They have big time players too. It's going to be one of those games where with mistakes, you don't need any turnovers. You can control the game with turnovers."
Drew Brees always talks about going back to guys after they make a mistake. I noticed after one of his touchdown passes to you that he came down to you guys and talked to you. What was the message?
"He said, you knew he was coming back. We were going to get another chance and another opportunity, because earlier in the game, I had a drop. You know for us, that's one of the worst feelings in the world. For him to come back to you, you know that's a great feeling."
Defence wins games.
Field condition must be taken into account.
There will be no blow out game.
Brees always goes back to a receiver he didnt hit.
These are the points mostly raised in here, the Saints players know this, most 9er fans know this. Too bad most of the Saints fans cant see it.
They completely stymied the Steelers' blitzing schemes and they can do the same thing to the Saints. Plus, the Saints blitz because they have to. You have to believe the Niners will be ready to exploit those blitzes.
