Yes ST creates field advantages and points that changes coaching decisions.

ST is as important as offense or defense.

Youll know if you ever tried creating a team, i have!

STs wins SBs? Is this an alternate universe?

And in this alternate universe, offense plays no part? That's probably the only way 9ers have a chance.

I think the Giants are not as reliant on special teams as the 49ers because they have such a good third down conversion rate.

One of the reason the 49ers have won so many games this season is because our special teams can not only return the ball for good field position, but we make the other team march at least 80 yards for a touchdown (which burns time off the clock, favoring defensive strengths), regularly put the ball on the five yard line, and rarely miss field goals from under 50 yards.

Special teams is not necessarily that important when Green Bay plays the Saints (unless it comes down to a field goal at the end) because it is basically a shootout. Playing a good defensive team like the 49ers or the Ravens, special teams are often the key to victory.

ST is going to be a key this Sunday, who ever wins will rely on ST.

I know that have better special teams in general. You do have a good kick returner but he is hurt.

Yep that's why I am glad we have an advantage with out punter (if it comes to that) being able to pin your butts down deep everytime

if special teams wins championships, how did we win a championship in 2007. Great quarterbacks and great defensive line play is how we won a championship 3 times and will happen again this year to make it 4 championships.

Poor ball control by the Saints is Exactly the only reason ALEX SMITH did anything with 50% or less of the SAINTS balls in the RED ZONE last week.

Be honest now. If you had a choice of a team with a better offense and defense but an inferior special teams unit who would you pick? Special Teams are important but they come in 3rd compared to offense and defense.

Poor ball control by the Saints is Exactly the only reason ALEX SMITH did anything with 50% or less of the SAINTS balls in the RED ZONE last week.


Look at what the Saints have done all year and what the 49ers have done all year. It is not poor ball control. It is reflective of the reality what happens when a deep passing team like the Saints meets a fumble and interception-forcing team like the 49ers. Drew Brees is a very accurate quarterback who had very few interceptions. The fact is, long passes are a high risk, high reward strategy, and even with someone as good as Brees, when you pass into the end-zone or for first downs against the 49ers defense, you are going to get more than a few turnovers. It happened to Brees, it happened to Manning, it happened to Vick, it happened to <span class="st">Roethlisberger. And, when you make the completion (because the 49ers focus on stopping the run, not the pass) your receiver better hold onto the ball really tight because our defense hits hards and forces fumbles.

Alex Smith plays a different ball game. When Manning is on third and long, his sine qua non is to get a first down. When Alex Smith is on third and long, his sine qua non is to not give the other team good field position by throwing an interception, which is why he is the highest rated quarterback this year in terms of interceptions per pass. The 49ers would rather give the ball to one of the best punters to play the game, have him put it well under the 20, and trust their defense than to use the high-risk first down passes.

However, when Alex Smith absolutely had to make the first down pass this year, he has come through, as we saw in the game against the Saints, which shows that he is capable of taking the risky shots and making them when the game is on the line.

But if you are expecting to pass the way Manning did against Green Bay and not get turnovers, well, I suggest you review the footage of the last game the Giants played in Candlestick. I would be surprised if there were less than two interceptions and four turnovers by the Giants in this game.

I did not say they are not important. I said they are not as important as the offense of defense which are one the field for 100+ plays. By the way it isn't like the Giants have a bad Special Teams. They have played very well.

Other than the real grass on the field, Candlestick park was pretty much as close as you are ever going to get to a dome last Saturday with virtually no wind and a dry field (very unusual conditions for that park).

And if you are being honest, the 49ers held the Saints very well for 95% of the game. The last five minutes were two quarterbacks making desperate throws to save the game for their team and scoring 28 points that nine times out of ten probably would never have gotten up on the board.

Don't get me wrong I love football outside in the conditions. It is the way it should be played. My point is the Saints are built for a fast indoor track and are just an average team outside. It has been proven many times.

No, I understand it, but I mean, other than the grass (which slows down the run a bit) the conditions for the Saints was pretty much the same as a dome.

Rain and wind have their advantages and disadvantages. It might rain during the game (first storm of the winter) and will probably be windy, which is bad for long passes (great for interceptions) and probably gives Smith a bit of an advantage since he tends to play conservatively and short. It is also good for the running game because the runners know their routes and the 49ers have a better ground game. It is bad for the defense though, because the receivers know their routes and can run them better in the mud.

The Giants will suffer a lot less from bad weather than the Saints would have. Honestly, I think that is part of the problem with Green Bay. They actually are not built well for the conditions in Lambeau field.

-Great punting by Weatherford all game long, really only thing that kept us in this game
-2 crucial fumble recoveries
-Weatherford holding that ball after the bad snap
-Tynes nailing it

I think that stating that we lost the game with Special Teams is more accurate. Kyle Williams may end up laying-low in New York for the next month or two.

At least I can give New York a bit of credit for stripping the ball, but the real game loser was him not getting out of the way of a punt he had no chance in fielding then pretending like nothing happened when it brushed against him, as if the Giants' coaching staff would somehow miss out on the fact in the NFC championship game. That was 100% on him and it was not even one of those things you can blame on bad luck. It was 100% bad judgement. Better to take the ball from the five and end up punting it away than to give it up to the Giants in field goal range on a close game where we had been forcing the Giants to punt on third down for the entire second half.
