    Pulling big time for the 49ers this weekend vs the Saints.  It's going to be interesting to see if the Niners defense can stop Drew.  If so, they'll win.  If it's a shoot out, not looking so good.

      49'ers has got the only D capable of stopping brees in the play-offs in my opinion.
      Craptree and gore will run the saints over!

      The 49ers win in a close game.  They play good defense and have a solid running game which should limit the number of opportunities Brees gets.

      The last time the 49ers faced a 5,000 yard passer was Dan Marino in Super Bowl XIX.  The 49ers defense shutdown Miami's offense.  Same thing could happen with Drew Brees this weekend.

      The Saints struggle in the playoffs on the road. But that usually is because of bad weather. Alex Smith is a game manager type QB with 0 playoff starts. I Like the Saints to win.

        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 wink

    Interesting that when I saw the game matchups my first thought was that I would rather see the Saints win this one as I think the Giants can take the Saints in a duel but the Niners would be tough!

    But hey, its the NFL .. and the post season and anything can happen!

    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!

    Go Saints!...erraa....Niners,...oh damn... cool

      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!!

      Go Blue!!!!!

        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. smile

    brees has to many weapons for the niners to keep up with, however there defence is the best its been in 10 plus years.

    The playoffs are magical. 

    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! big_smile

    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? big_smile

    The taller players are usually drafted into Rugby. sad

    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! big_smile

    Go Saints!!

      Can they tackle their opponent too even if they are so small big_smile big_smile big_smile?  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.

        There are NO LAWSUITS for Sports Injuries in NZ. 

        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! yikes

        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! big_smile

        1. prettydarkhorse profile image64
          prettydarkhorseposted 5 years ago in reply to this

          These lawsuits are recent due to brain injuries and concussions suffered by past players although it is hard to prove them because of time element.




          stocky players then..

      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.

  17. Pearldiver profile image88
    Pearldiverposted 5 years ago

    I must concede... San Fran earned the final minute win! sad

    Wow a few here picked the mistakes from the Saints as being their main problem.. but really some of them were well forced by a pretty determined 49ers team!

    1. rebekahELLE profile image88
      rebekahELLEposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      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. hmm

      Now I know who Alex Smith is.

    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.
