    San Fran #1 Rush D...#16 in Pass Defense

    Hey, maybe we open up the running game with passes. In the one playoff game they rank 11th out of the 12 teams in regards to pass defense during the playoffs.

    Still #1 rush defense though, yeah we aren't running the ball on them lol

    We looked insanely inpressive Defensively against the Saints. I thought our secondary look the best I've ever seen it.

    Granted Brees threw for 400 yds on us...
    He did throw the ball 70 times..
    Not to mention 90% of the passes were short screens while we were in a Zone defense.

    Atlanta was 6th in the NFL and we rushed for over 170 yards on the ground.




    The 49ers will be a tough team to run on, but I think if we stay commited to the run it will open up.





    Giants fan since the early 80s

    Giants have more weapons than the Saints, but I don't think Eli will throw for 400 yards.

    Our defense should play well against your offense though.

    I don't think you guys have more offensive weapons then the Saints do. Just being totally honest.

    I do think you'll have success vs our Defense.
    However, how much success will determine the outcome.

    Smith has been hot as of late.. Don't underestimate him

    I did against the Saints and he shut me up twice... in 4 minutes lol.

    I definitely don't think the Giants have more weapons than the Saints, but I would say the Giants have higher quality weapons.

    I'm not so sure I'd take it that far either...

    Giants WR > Saints WR
    Saints TE > Giants TE
    Saints RB > Giants RB
    Giants FB > Saints FB

    Pretty even IMHO...
    The WR spot just gives the Giants a slight edge due to numbers.

    Overall our WR's are better than the Saints

    Their one TE is better than all three of ours

    Our RB's are better as a whole vs theirs...but Sproles is better than AB as far as a multi threat back

    If you break it down

    Colston, Graham and Sproles are their biggest threats.

    On the Giants Cruz, Nicks, Mannigham, AB, and BJ are our biggest threats.

    Ballard is not on Graham's level by any means, but he can make plays,

    In the end it is pick your poison double Nicks..Cruz/Mannigham have to be singled up. Put in 8 in the box..one of our WR's will be singled up.

    My only concern is if you guys play a zone and your front four destroys our Oline.

    Like I said I don't think it will be 35-32 game.
