      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!

          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.

                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
                    Football has been very, very good to us.
                    After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                    But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

                    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
                    2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
                    3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
                    4-New York Giants!!!
                    5-NE
                    Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                      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.

                          We cannot hand the ball over like the un-balanced Saints did

                            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.

                              Special teams matters a lot. theyre the one that sets up field advantages before the offense or defense gets on the field
