Well they keep 2 safeties back to prevent big plays pretty often, which will make it difficult to get big plays on them. It's why we threw so many short passes to RB's and TE's last year in both games against them.

I'd be very happy if we could play the short passing game and be successful moving the chains thus taking time off the clock and keeping the
49ers offense on the bench...

I think we have a very savvy WR group and great depth, if Nicks plays you can run out some very impressive tallent in a 4 WR set, I just don't think they will be able to cover everybody! short passes eventually open up opportunites for the long stuff, we get them cheating up and Eli will burn them; the value of having some exceptional experience!

No, but we have to at least run the ball enough to keep them honest. If we drop back to pass 50 times, i think we'll lose big. Eli's gonna get killed if that happens.

THIS.

The offense will have to keep the 49ers D on their toes. If they can't run the ball, play action will be borderline useless. They will need to break a long run or two to keep the keep the safeties peeking in the backfield and close to the LOS.

Giants can't let them up by 2 scores like they have done all year so far or it will get ugly fast.

I think slow it but not stop it.

would love to see the Giants come out with a few new wrinkles. Hurry up, flea flicker, designed roll outs, etc.
I like the Giants chances especially if they get even a mediocre run game going.

Thats a fact, have to keep the pedal to the metal, our D gives up way to many points.

Wilson will be one new wrinkle. Not a lot of film on him at this point.

I throw this in the "stats can mean nothing" category. We are 5 games into the season and who they played is much more important than how they've played at this point. As we move through the season, the base of data will broaden out and be more meaningful. Let them think that they are great.

The 49ers will try different ways to slow down our pass game I'm sure. But if our pass game is clicking, that will open up our run game moreso. And like Roanoke mentioned, Wilson should be more of an X factor/weapon/wrinkle for our offense as well. The main thing is that the O-line gives Eli enough time. I think Bennett will be key too. His blocking is going to be needed.

Remember, in the NFCCG, the Giants moved the ball much better than the 49ers. Take away 2 plays by Vernon Davis and this would have been a blowout.

Ideally what the giants offense should do is, establish the run and short passes, The niners defense is known to be good against the run, allowing them to keep the safeties deep to stop the deep pass. If the giants can get the run going and the short passes, the safeties might start inching in a little and then we can get start hitting our deep passes.
