New York Giants show how to beat San Francisco 49ers @ NFL

It's not that hard to see why we lost. It's not some mystery, and the Vigiants didn't come with a super game plan either. Last year Smith was pressured heavily in the Thanksgiving game, but that game was a lot closer. It's simple...

1. Stop the Kapernick "Teebow" thing.

2. Smith was obviously told to take let the ball fly a bit more. Don't. Bring him back to super conservative play and throwing the ball away and taking sacks rather than INTs.

3. Moss is an unused weapon IMO. Take some shots down the field with him.

4. Being down by 10 or 13 doesn't mean you should give up on the running game. Keep pounding, sweeping, and setting up screens, or the passing game has no chance.

I think we'll be alright. Everyone's just on edge because it was the Giants, and it was supposed to be our revenge game, and all the analysts picked us to win. It was a bad loss, but the mistakes are correctable. At the end of the day we're 4-2, and on pace to finish 12-4. Remember the sky was falling in NY last year too, and look where they ended up.

~ Have an elite QB.
~ Have an elite defense.

Pretty good formula. Not every team has that.

I think our guys are decent.. but when watching these guys? F**k... not even in the same stratosphere.
No doubt those Giants receivers made some spectacular catches. Some were covered well, some weren't. I'm not sure if it's skill or intensity, but I think it's a little of both that the San Francisco Forty-Niners receivers are lacking. That being said, I would say Manningham and KW have the intensity, not so sure about the other receivers and, dare I say, tight ends.

Then you're overreacting. He just had an off day like our run defense.

He is 2 years into this league.Culliver should be fine.
make alex have to pass
Play calling was horrible after the first two series. Akers misses two fg's and special teams are killing us. That's it. Roman panicked.

Roman beat himself to a bloody pulp with his own creativity , he refused to run the ball, and tried to force his CK plays to work ...we cant be turned into a one dimensional team like that again , once we abandon running the ball , and become a desperate passing team , things tend to blow up in our faces
Has anybody considered that maybe roman game planned the way he did was in part due to the short week and he wanted to preserve the rbs for the load on the short week?

Definitely possible.. but with the RB stable we have, I don't see a huge need to compromise one game for the next.

I think with Akers missing two first half FGs, being down 10-3, they just tried to get a lil too cute and overly creative. Definitely feel the NYG worked much harder in the film room than we did... that they wanted it more. (much like the Vikes)
Every team has a formula. This is pretty stupid. How have we beaten the teams we have? By coming out with good formulas. Stopping Rodgers, stopping Stafford, Sanchez, Fitzpatrick. Common sense..... Teams gameplan, that what gameplans supposed to do is take qbs out of their rythym. Again sheer common football sense.

Well, what happen to that stable? Is dixon worthless in any other situation besides garbage time and ST? As for jacobs idk what to think, is the staff just protecting their guy until he's 100% or is harbaugh having a spy vs. spy moment?

I agree with everything in your 2nd paragraph.
ground game muzzled by the Giants? more like by our own coaching staff. this article is b******t.

With Hunter, Gore, and Jacobs on the roster.. we could have afforded to run the ball far more than TWELVE times... and been fine with the short week to run them some more. If Gore was our only worthy RB.. and we ran him 15 times vs the NYG.. he'd have still been fine to run him on Thursday vs Seattle. That's what I am saying.

As for Jacobs... I think Jim is in no hurry to use him. He was signed as quality RB depth in case an injury occurred to Gore/Hunter. I think we straight up lied to his face on how utilized he would be. It is either that... or he's not looking 100% in practice or is not fully absorbed in the playbook and making mistakes in practice.

Nope. We had 3 legit RBs active and 2 others we could use on Thursday night. We simply abandoned the run too soon but I like what I heard from Alex explaining his thought process on each INT and think this will benefit our passing O in the long run.
