Hard to not say Keap but you're right on about it possibly being a different game with poor line play. Joe Staley is a beast and our entire line dominated.
I think we have the best O-line left in the playoffs, completely capable of neutralizing any of the D-lines we might face and it is going to be an X-factor for us going forward.
