I saw this yesterday on TV and shook my head about the reason why Donovan and Sterling took the Saints. I typically don't like Baldie's analysis and didn't care for it alot in this one either but he is partially right. The team that wins up front is gonna win this game. The Saints are hurting at RT and I haven't been really impressed by their oline this year anyway. Supporting the Saints are gonna be able to run the ball and remain balanced is weak to me. I just dont see their backs being able to do anything in the run game. On the flip their Dline does not get a ton of pressure and their secondary isnt great. I just don't see it. If the Niners don't turn the ball over and come to play like they did on Monday night this should be a win.
I have seriously heard better info from drunk females at the bar. Donovan and Sterling sounded completely foolish. I liked how Baldie said "this game will be won in the trenches no matter how many pretty balls are thrown by Brees". He said it while rolling his eyes too. His analysis was spot on btw, not sure how you could disagree even a little.
With Charles Brown out and Zach Strief questionable, I agree we should get good pressure on Brees all game. I look for this to limit their downfield passing attack quite a bit.
