LeSean McCoy, Cedric Benson, Marshawn Lynch, Ray Rice, Rashard Mendenhall and Steven Jackson can't really run against anyone?

Other than Marshawn, who was the ONLY RB to do well against us (and his team lost), we've shut everyone we've played down.... including these Pro-Bowl RB's from the last couple years, and All-Pro LeSean McCoy.

No need for an asterisk- just better research and not relying on a couple vague stats or generalizations.

You do know that it is not only about the RBs? There's much more that goes into a running offense than just the guy carrying the ball.

If you've been paying attention, the Saints have been shutting down Adrian Peterson, Chris Johnson, and Michael Turner. The 49ers have one thing to hang their hat on. The Saints are more well rounded and, this should not be overlooked, they have recent experience winning the Superbowl.

Most would consider the NYG defense one of the best in the NFL this year. Especially rushing the passer. Saints scored 49 on that defense at mid-season. Statistically, the Giants are ranked ahead of the 49ers in yards allowed, as are three other teams.

So who is your money on ---
1) A team with an offense considered to be one of the best of all time, and a 24th-ranked defense, playing away from home on grass or...
2) A team with, not the best but one of the better defenses in the league this year, and a 24th-ranked offense?

I know who my money's on.
