I am a 49ers fan and wanted to say congratulations on your win. It was one heck of a game. The loss doesn't hurt as much as the way we lost. I think we were going to lose in the long run in over time anyway. Our offense went 1/13 on 3rd down ,and really 0/12. The only conversion was at the end of regulation in garbage time when you were playing prevent defense. Unless the 49ers offense found a way to get another big play out of vernon or break off a big run by Frank, we were going to eventually lose the field position battle, and I am sure Eli and that offense were goign to finally conect on a big play themselves. Obviously I wasn't rooting for that, but the writing was on the wall.
What killed me was how STUPID Kyle Williams was playing, and how the coaches allowed hm to continue to return kicks. He dove for a punt before the one that hit his knee, then he didn't know what he wanted to do when fielding the one that did hit his knee, and then he wasn't thinking about ball security in OT. As the Tuna himself is quoted saying time and time again, "Don't be that guy." Don't be the guy that loses you the game. It is a team sport, but Kyle Williams time and time again made mistakes to cost the team.
Now, here is where I really want to give credit to the Giants. You guys make people play a "perfect game of football." When teams don't play a perfect game against you, you make them pay. The Packers made stupid play calls and dropped a lot of uncontested passes. You had nothing to do with that, but you took advantage of their mistake and didn't make any of your own. That takes a lot of discipline. I think that is big reason why the 49ers are back, and will be a tough team for years. Here is to a lot more intense rivalry games in the post season!
