    While the 49ers are a good team, who have they beat?

    It was a great win for them in week one vs GB. But we have seen that GB is not the same as they have been in recent years. The 49ers also beat the Bills and Jets, but only lost to the Vikes.

    The Giants oline is playing a little bit better since D2 is out (and I have been a big fan of his, but the tackle spot exposes him). Recall that last year during the season we had a chance to win it on the final drive, but KG had a horrible game plan that day. All those 3-4 wr sets in the shotgun & calling HB draws, and the tip on the last play by smith I believe. Only thing that still annoys me to this day is not allowing Eli to work the no huddle/hurry up offense when the offense is struggling and can use it to get in a rhythm/tempo when it is obvious either Eli, the Wrs, or both need it. I believe that cost us the Eagles game more so than Barden, even though that was huge in itself.

    If our line has improve as did our run game, and the other guys besides cruz can make plays as they generally have been the last few weeks we have a solid shot. But our defense, especially defensive ends and run stopping has to seal up the holes this week. I am still not sold on Alex Smith. He showed how bad he was when going to the SB was on the line. Eli could have put much bigger numbers up that day if it wasn't for the weather.

    It should be another good game, to bad we have to go back there for a 3rd time in the last year practically.

    45-3 and 34-0 isn't just a beating... that's called beating the living **** out of teams. The Vikings caught em off guard and might be an underrated squad sitting at 4-1 themselves.

    You can make the exact same statement about our Giants...only the evidence is even stronger.

    Teams they beat have a combined record of 6 wins and 13 loses with one team having a bye already so it could likely be 6 - 14

    as I said, what can you say about us?

    Lets compare:

    The teams we have beat have a combined record of 2-12 with 1 bye.

    Assuming your facts are right the teams they beat have a 6-13 with 1 bye.

    So they have more wins vs better opponents, advantage ------49ers.

    The teams we have lost to have a combined record of 5-4 with 1 bye or a .555 winning precentage.

    the teams they have lost to have a 4-1 record or a .800 winning percentage.

    So again, they have beaten better teams than us and we have lost to worse teams then them. Advantage---49ers

    My point is that NONE of this matters. The game is all that matters.

    using a 16 game season to discuss these statistics can be misleading because any given week anyone can beat anyone, but thinking they mean anything after only 5 games is downright silly.

    I have to go back to Blue Santa on this, you are saying because they lost to one team that is 4 - 1 they have lost overall to better teams with 1 loss?

    That is true. Thats why I think it can go either way, but we have proven from last year as well as this year we adapt fairly well. I just dont see them being as dominant as ppl are making them out to be.

    Teams we beat got a combined record of 2-12 with Tampa having a bye so it can easily be 2-13. Regardless of the records, this game is gonna be a hard hitting battle with the Niners looking towards to trying to embarrass us and get into our heads early. We better be ready to match their intensity or we might find ourselves trying to climb out of a BIG hole.

    I agree the intesnsity will be part of it. But I have a feeling the Giants have something to prove as well. And this is the perfect time for the deline to play up to there skill set. The deline seems to play big, in big games or vs the better teams in the league. If nicks and bennett are healthy, that also adds a big dimension to our offense with Cruz, Hixon and Randal.
