But the saints D has givin' up alot of points this year. And last week was the 49ers first rushing touchdown against their D. 49ers D is strong, and the saints is not as good on D as when they went to the Superbowl. Will see what happens
I have been a faithful Saints fan for more than 30 years, so I have to remain loyal! But, if any D can slow Drew enough to take the W, it would be the Niners. My loyalty is with the Saints, but (because I am a NorCal Gal) my heart may be drifting toward the Bay Area this weekend! No matter what, it should be a great showing for both teams!
I know the feeling .. but this transplanted west coast girl is a die hard NY fan. Be it the Jets or the Giants, a few weeks back, I won and lost on the same day!!!! Jets elimination made the rest of the season easy. . its all about the G-Men from this point on!!
I wonder how much of the "hurt feelings" between the two head coaches will play into the way these teams go to war. It goes without saying that Brees will be the best player on the field Saturday. But, the 49ers have a real rushing edge. If they don't bring every bit of this segment of their game, it may be a Saints blow-out. I have a feeling that we will be seeing the most critical events coming from special teams on both sides of the field! Can't wait for this game!
I think the officials will be critical in this game. If the Niners are allowed to get physical with the Saints' receivers, they can disrupt the timing and limit the big plays. If they call it tight, it could be a long day for San Fran.
It'll either be 10-9 or 48-7. Either way the Saints have the firepower and to be honest, the Niners don't, yet. Alex Smith is not top tier. Both defense's are good but if the Niners defense has to spend a lot of time on the field they are toast. Rooting for Brees cause he's from the Big Ten. Besides I like his pregame chants.
I really love that Alex Smith has a chance to right a career. Tim Tebow amazes me (I wish I could buy stock in Tim). I'll watch every down he plays. Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees are at the top of their games. Eli Manning could march his way to a 2nd Super Bowl. I wouldn't be surprised. Tom Brady stands in a class by himself. The brothers Harbaugh make a very intriguing story if they continue to win.
As a NFL football fan, it doesn't get much better than 2012!
I really don't know which team will win. I am a fan of Defense, but Brees is just explosive. Two years ago when they won the Superbowl, their D is better. The average score of NO when they are not at home this season is 27, at home it is 41. Maybe the NO will find a lot more inspiration to win now after the loss of the states college team LSU to Bama.
In New Zealand.. Our Experts say that we play real football - Rugby & League without body armor, helmets, tight pants and funny undies!
There are only 632 kiwis who know what NFL Football is or is all about. I am certainly no expert but I do enjoy the game and the playoffs. We have a few gridiron teams here, but they tend to be restricted to players who are 3'6" or shorter! Can you imagine how hard it is as a coach to find a QuarterBack under 3'6" who can stand out from the rest of the team?
The taller players are usually drafted into Rugby.
631 kiwis reckon that San Fran will win this game! The short bets lie with them.
I am a lot taller than the other 631... So I have to back the Saints!
Can they tackle their opponent too even if they are so small ? Oh those rugby players, they are big, tall and mean, yes!!!! Here, they changed the rules already, players are more careful now, players wear helmets, no helmet to helmet hits. The league (NFL) is beset with lots of lawsuits due to past circumstances.
However... You get discounted bandages and blood transfusions Only! Although you also get a 'Get Over It!' letter from the PM, along with $10 worth of track vouchers, to be used for rehab within a month of your injury!
I guess that is why our players are HUGE and Will Not wear those funny undies!
As far as the under 3'6" Short Players are concerned... In fairness to the future development of the game... there is No Age Limit on the players! I guess they hope to keep and foster experienced players, who though they actually won't get taller... can get wider and wiser!
It will be hard to top that nail-biter, that's for sure. The Niners totally deserved that. Blood pressure high in our house this afternoon. Gotta practice some "ommmms" before tomorrow. Eli, Eli, Eli!!
Sweet win for the 49'ers EVEN though I thought the Saints saved themselves in that last minute. My dog kept looking at me wondering if I was ok during the last 5 minutes. I wanted the Saints to win, but who can say SF didn't deserve that win.
well, yeah, I do agree that they were very determined but their defense was strong throughout the game. It felt like watching modern day gladiators with some plays. I wasn't one of the happy fans at the end of the game. I thought the Saints last touchdown would seal the deal. I guess they thought that too.
great game big upset!!!!! I just want to know how do you let alex smith score like that. It took fim 4ever to run those 20 yards! The te went off yesterday davis,gronk,graham so maybe finley, pita and dickson will to.
Being that my game already happened on Thursday between the Vikings and Saints, the remaining game that I am most looking forward to is the Monday night game:Baltimore Ravensvs.New York JetsBoth teams were amongst the...
The Giants and 49ers were both underdogs this past weekend, and both came away with a win. Now they'll play each other for the right to advance to the Super Bowl. Who do you think will win this matchup?
I'm taking Tampa Bay straight up to win on the field. The Saints have been showing up late for the past four weeks and they have the big game against the Patriots next week. I think they are gonna take their eye off the...
