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

Somewhere, in the darkness of the night, a plane moved across the sky from San Francisco to New Orleans. I can imagine Drew Brees staring into the darkness that enveloped the plane, mulling over the plays he wish he had back against the 49ers in their playoff tilt. Shortly following that loss, albeit a couple of minutes or a few days, Brees, along with the rest of the Saints, promised themselves and each other not to give up on this team. Through it all, the Saints have shown a tremendous amount of audacity. It feels as though the Saints have lost more this season than the Detroit Lions did in the 80′s. Somehow, the Saints have seen their way through it all and finally have a chance at getting above .500. The San Francisco 49ers come into town on Sunday boasting one of the best defenses in the league. The 49ers are 2nd in the league in yards allowed per game with 277.7 yd/g, with only the Steelers ahead of them. The Niners also lead the league in points allowed per game, only giving up a paltry 13.4 per game. That’s amazing! But wait a minute, let’s delve a little deeper into that number and we’ll see how deceiving that is. In five games this season, the 49ers have held their opponents to 7 points or less. Take a look at the numbers and the stats.

Not bad. A lot of selective stats but very interesting.

However I doubt we score 38 on the 49ers without a defensive TD and/or a special teams TD.

I hope the players don't think this will be as easy.

In 48 hours it'll be in the books and we'll be basically IN or OUT.

Consult your doctor before beginning an aspirin regimen. F' DAT. I'm taking a whole bottle to this game!

Make it a 7-2 win with a Brees TD pass so his consecutive TD streak continues!

Yeah we got a good defense. Good stopping the pass and run and not allowing many points.

I reckon we do not get 38 either.
If we can hold them to 20, we stand a very good chance.

To the game.

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

Good read, but our D still has to show up period!! Someone on the D has to catch fire and set the tone for the others to feed off of, Denver made the D look like school kids and thats the D I'm scared of that could show up at any time. If we win it has to be a great effort on both sides of the ball, not just 1.

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

I reckon if the Rams can score 24, we should be able to score at least 30, given no turnovers on our part. 38 is certainly doable too.
