1. It's not a good idea to guarantee that your defense will stop Drew Brees. Niners coach Mike Singletary, exasperated with an interview during his very exasperating week leading up to Monday night, proclaimed, "We will not try to stop Drew Brees. We will stop Drew Brees."
And for the most part, the 49ers defense did a good job of containing Brees and the high-octane Saints on Monday.

The Saints were the beneficiaries of two 49ers fumbles, two interceptions and a safety. But six of their possessions ended with punts and three in field goals. Unlike against Minnesota, when........
