Vernon Davis worries me. And Alex Smith's running worries me. 49ers d is nasty. It is a very tough test for the Giants especially with how injured they are.
Nice writeup OP. I want your thoughts on this possible scenario: The 49ers are down by two possessions to the Giants (Any moment in the game will suffice) due to an unexpected surge by the Giants offense. Do the 49ers make any changes to their offensive gameplan and if they go to the pass more, is there confidence in any of their receiving options sans Vernon Davis?
I respect what the 49ers bring out on the field but I do want to see them win a come from behind game this year to solidify their mental toughness in such a situation. The Falcons did that against the Panthers and that's why I have them ranked as the best team in the NFL as of this moment.
The G-Men are resilient, I'm as nervous as anyone. But with Eli manning our ship I'm confident going to battle against anyone.
A classy post...see you Sunday.
you can go gloat about your team on your own MB. nobody here cares.
btw, what happened to A.smith against the gmen in the playoffs last year? Oh yea..now i remember....what was it, 2 completions to WR's?
I always felt like he just needed the right coach
and the 49er defense scares the hell out of me
we also have no answer for Vernon Davis
if the Giants pass rush cannot get to Smith it will be a long day
I can see lots of over pursuit resulting in getting slashed by the screen pass
still predict a Giant victory 37 - 34 on a late FG
should be a fun watch
I expect to see Eli drop back ALOT this game and I bet Gilbride will be focusing on a more west coast style of offense with quick slants and back shoulder throws.
Counter SF's run game with
-efficiency on offense
-avoid drive stalling plays and penalties
