All year long when the 49ers win the toss they elect to kick off as they like their defense on the field first to try and set the tone. If the Giants win the toss, should they elect to defer, and try and let THEIR defense set the tone, and perhaps throw the Niners off their routine?

I always prefer deferring.

not like allowing the opposing team the possibility of scoring 14 points before
we get the ball back. I also thinks it gives our offense a chance to see how
the flow of the game is going.</font></span></font></div>

said for a big, 6+ minute opening drive that leads to points like it did in GB.
We set a good tone for the game and never looked back. Ultimately I think we
have to do what we do, and not go out of character to try and play to another
teams weakness. So we'll prob take the ball first. </font></span></font></div>

I agree. First of all, this game I think our defense is more likely to make an initial statement if it takes the field first. Secondly, I like getting the ball to start the 2nd half.

Kick it, this game might be a defensive battle, I rather get the ball at the 2nd half

I like to defer, mainly because 7-8 times out of ten your first offensive possession is more of a feeling out anyways and usually ends with a punt. I'd rather start the 2nd half with the ball after making adjustments. But I don't think it's a huge deal either way.

Yes, if we chose to kick off first , the o Line would've been able to block. You should be coach, you have it all figured out.

The game today must really put your faith in having the opposition getting the ball to start the second half, Let's see. score with 7 seconds left in the first half, and then, oh I don't know, just for kicks and giggles, let them score to start the second half.

And starting on defense today would have changed what?? You watched this mess today, and this is what you came away with? Really?
