The reality of this game to me is that the Niner offense for whatever reason couldn't move the ball. The W/L hinged on that squarely.
That is why we lost. If we could have gone back to just "red zone woes", that would have been enough to win against the Giants (not Saints).Think of the time of possession difference a few field goal drives would have produced, not to mention not having atrocious 3rd down conversion ratios and lack of completions to a wide receiver.
Looks like the Giants D did the best job of any defense in controlling our receivers, even better than Baltimore who got us more because our OL failed.
I still want an explanation how an NFL offense could not get the ball to wide receivers.
