No one remembers who came in second.
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.
"They come to the line of scrimmage and the first thing they do is start looking for me....I know, and they know. When they’d find me they’d start screaming: 56 left ! 56 left!....So there’s this thing I did. After the play was over I’d come up behind them and whisper: don’t worry where I am. I’ll tell you when I get there."
- Lawrence Taylor
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.
