49ers don't play that type of game.
BTW, I applaud you coming on here in enemy territory. I do so myself from time to time.
The big question I have for you is how do you explain your playoff loss to the Giants? That was a tough beating that can't be rationalized solely on Rodgers and the offense being "rusty" or unlucky.
Like I've said before, the biggest matchup issue in any big game the 49ers play this season is how their offense plays against the opposing team's defense. No matter how good any NFL offense is, it will more or less be controlled by the 49ers. The Saints were the only team to hang 30+ on us, and were pretty lucky to do it too.
If you can stop the 49ers offense then I would be concerned.
The 49ers did in the playoffs against the Saints. That was a total shootout.
