One of those rings should have been ours.


Exactly. Watching that game MNF at Candlestick brought up some old, not so good, memories. Bring them on...I want to beat them at the stick so bad, it's not even funny!!!!

Like I was talking about earlier, if you are skilled and gutsy with the ball, and are counting on your accuracy to deliver balls into a lot of tight coverage (typical Brees, Rodgers, Eli, Brady type throws) then you get intercepted more. If you're mostly hitting 8 yard clunker passes where the guy is right in front of you, unobstructed, facing you with his hands waiting in front of his numbers, like the 49ers seem to do, you will NOT throw a lot of interceptions. If you're throwing deep, or sidelines, or throwing accurately into tight spots, contested balls, attacking the coverage when going for big game-changing plays, you get more interceptions as a result.

I do agree, though, if Drew gets the jitters and throws a couple of boneheaded INTs early on, and gets that weird grimace on his face on the sidelines (the weird sweaty disheveled look like a wet dog, not the determined "I'm gonna win this" game face look), then it's going to be very tough for the Saints.
Agreed. However my point was his accuracy as much at it was the lack of turnovers.... Weather its Smiths inaccuracy or the Rbs not fumbling... They just do not turn the ball over much and their defense generates nearly 2 per game.

21 interceptions this season has nothing to do with Smith.SF recovers 1 fumble per game average this season.
