Saints vs 49ers: What They’re Not Telling You

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; It's not D...rew wishing for any plays back it's just plain D that wants that. We had five turnovers and still had the game in our pocket with one defensive stop. Here's to hoping for a better showing this year....

If we don't turn the ball over, and don't quit on the run game, we take this game and I think 38 is very reasonable. What I want to see is no stupid penalties, no stupid antics of any kind all game long and even after the game. Don't give these guys ammunition for our next meeting in the playoffs.

This is an interesting stat if you look at the last 6 games but we still given up a lot of yards

PAST 6 GAMES
Record OPP PTS PG Sacks

Steelers D* 4-2 17.3 12

I agree, SF has a good defense, but your DL and Total defense is not better than last year, and thats a defense we put 32 pts on at your stadium. Not the fast track of the Dome.

SF has played off and on all season, so your defense is very beatable, especially with the Saints offense that has remained constantly elite for 6 years. Its not going to be easy, but we have blown out elite defenses before, same as we carved up your defense last year.

IF you don't believe me here are your rankings

2012 DEFENSIVE EFFICIENCY RATINGS #6

2012 DEFENSIVE LINES #14

Im really not understanding why SF fans think their defense is better than last year, because its simply not. Im sure its just the Bears game that makes them think that, and thats just silly vs the #32 pass protection OL in the NFL.

Buy the way your OL is #31 in pass protection That should be fun.

Re: Saints vs 49ers: What They’re Not Telling You

Well what they dont really tell you about rankings is that it is skewed based on the Division.

49ers play in a division where offense is 2nd rate to defense.

Many teams are like this, Ravens ring a bell? Everytime they have faced a good offense, that offense has scored so much on them its pitiful.

Is the 49ers Defense that great?

No

Why do they win?

Because they have balance, a Balanced game produces more wins, that and they do face alot of cupcakes or teams at the right time.

I think todays game is the 49ers facing the Saints at the wrong time, Wrong time for the 49ers that is, and the 49ers will lose that battle.

Re: Saints vs 49ers: What They’re Not Telling You

This game I don't think is the make or break. I think if we have 7 losses is when that happens. Honestly these next two we need to get through at least 1-1 because I feel confident in our last four. I thought 9-7 could be okay to have just one problem with that.....the redskins. If they split their next two games it comes down to if Eagles go on a late run and if they do they can beat them week 16 especially if Vick is back as he has had their number. Seattle has to lose to Miami though today for that to happen. Its 14-7 Seattle atm.
