The crazy thing about this game is we were both supposed to lose last weekend.
"It's a new NFL" "Defense doesn't matter" "It's a passing league"
Well, GB and NO, the definition of that new style is now watching from home.
Its all of a sudden turned into more of an old school battle.
I am going to do my best as how I see the matchup. I am sure there will be disagreements which is fine, but here it goes.
QB: Giants. As well as Smith has been playing there is no denying Eli has been there before and proven himself more. If Alex keeps up what he has done this year for a few more, he may enter the same camp. But definitely not yet.
RB: Niners. And I see this as VERY close, but Gore is a stud and Hunter is QUICK on the outside. It has become a great 1-2 punch. Of course Bradshaw/Jacobs is a great duo as well.
WR: Giants. No need to debate this one. I have been a huge Nicks fan from the beginning. He's a beast and has great guys around him.
TE: Niners: Should also be easy. VD is a beast. What you might not know is Walker and Peele are great blocking TE's, that is where they pull out the power 3 TE sets.
OL: Draw? I want to say Niners, but our guys have been up and down. They have the potential to play great. What do we get on Sunday?
DL: Draw: I feel good about this one. J. Smith makes sure we are as good as anyone. But playing in a 3-4 its different.
LB: Niners. Willis and Bowman of course. Best Inside duo in the league. But watch out for those nickle and dime situations. That's where Aldon comes in. Dude is a beast (D rookie of year). This really needs to be looked at in combination with DL.
DB: Draw? I would say both are good. Our strength is definitely with the play of ours safety's right now. They are bringing pain. On the corner Rogers has been playing great. I would love to actually hear from you guys about this position from the NYG. I am not well versed.
ST: NINERS! This has won us games, 'nough said. From punts to FG's to our KO and punt coverage. This crew is good. It's funny its the first time I have paid them so much attention, but they really have been difference makers.
Lastly coaching. Have to give it to Giants. As good and as much as I like Harbaugh, TC has been there and done it. If Harb's wins this game....We'll see...
So interested to hear your thoughts. Obviously I know the Niners better than the Giants, so enlighten me
