SANTA CLARA One of the ways the 49ers will try to slow Drew Brees and the high- powered Saints offense: block the quarterback's view.

At 6 feet, Brees is one of the shortest quarterbacks in the league. He has overcome his low profile, however, with great awareness of where everyone is on the field and, according to 49ers defensive end Justin Smith, where the open gaps are along the line of scrimmage.

"He's just a really smart guy the way he attacks the pass rush," Smith said Wednesday. "He knows where those B-gap windows are going to be and he baits the outside rushers by dropping back, and then he steps up and slides to where he needs to be for his open receivers."

The simple fact that San Francisco is looking at alternative methods to stop our offense proves they they are scared and their standard game plans are inadequate.

It's kind of funny that Brees has been putting up record book numbers since teaming up with Payton. I don't think he has shrunk since then.

Our ground game will force the SF D-line to respect the run. A QB doesn't need to be 6'6" to run play action. The Saint's have been killing opponents deep on these plays.

Next strategy:

" We really think it will be crucial to block the Saints' punts. We've been working hard on getting an open lane to the spot of release, but we're having problems; there's just not a lot of tape. BUT, we're working on it! "

-- 49ers Special team coaching staff

Remember the name Justin Smith. You're going to see/hear a lot about him during the game.

Smith and Smith and Smith are going to wreck you guys. Also expect to see Smith on special teams to add a little support.

Jared Allen and a boy named Suh thought the same.

YOU, my friend, are going to see a lot of Drew Brees during this game.

This is what I want to see.

I want to see SF defensive linemen stand up and take Chris Ivory to the gut!
Stand up straight and try and put a hand on DL Sproles.
Stand up straight and try to stop PT!

The moral of the story is that our run game is probably the biggest sleeper in the game...

Its not a sporty 550 HP Mustang Shelby GT 500.

It is a 4 door 556 HP Cadillac CTS-V sedan.

You pull up against it, look at the 4 doors and the Cadillac symbol and a little old lady comes to mind... Then the light turns green and 3.9 seconds later it is hitting 60 while you try and play catch up.

Further proof that the fans are delusional, actually believing they can run against the 49er's with Patrick Willis back and rested.

Btw, the lineman don't have to do much in the run game. Patrick Willis can shut down the run by him self.

How long since he's played tackle football?

How old are you, Culliver? You profess like a 16-year-old who just discovered "erect".
