    Super Bowl Concerns

    What matchups are you worried about for the Super Bowl?

    For me, watching the Ravens Pats game today one thing I noticed was that Wilfork absolutely destroyed Matt Birk. He just bull rushed him straight into the QBs lap and blew up a bunch of runs as well. I'm not gonna lie I'm not a Baas fan and I really think he's going to need more help than Birk got today.

    concerned about how well the patriots pass rush has been doing just like you said.

    I hope Eli has time to torch the patriot's secondary

    As well as the NE defense has been lately and I take nothing away from them....but I honestly think we just got past the toughest defense imaginable in football.

    Even if we lose in the SB, there is no way Eli gets tossed around and beat up like he did tonight.

    Certainly have to help out on Big vince. Obviously Gronkowski is a beast and a hern out of the backfield is scary too. Obviously Welker draws attention on the inside as well. No one is more scary then Brady - hopefully the turf helps osi tuck and jpp get off fast on the line.

    They have improved in the middle with Mayo Spikes Wilfork and love/ warren. And ninkovich/ anderson have come on as well. But still they are not the niners up front at all.

    They are still thin in the secondary and molden was forced into action today. But probably get healthy here in two weeks - but they can still be picked on.

    Not worried about the Pats. Sorry to sound ****y but we're that team's kryptonite.

    Can't you guys enjoy this game for a week? For Christ sake they just won one of their greatest championship games in their history and already your negative about the next big game! I do not know how some of you guys go week to week watching the GIANTS play!

    With the way the OL got outmuscled today, I'm worried about Wilfork putting pressure up the middle on Eli, and am a little worried with how well Nikovich has been able to get to the QB.

    Mac will need to step his game up b/c he got absolutely owned today by Aldon Smith.

    Hard to say how much of it was our OL playing bad vs. their front 7 playing outstanding...but yeah it was troubling. Eli can handle the pass rush pretty well but not when the entire pocket collapses in 2 seconds. Luckily I can't see the Pats getting that kind of pressure. But like I said, Wilfork is a big concern because if one of their pass rushers gets around the corner here and there Eli can handle it but if Wilfork collapses the pocket he has no where to go.
