Time: 1:15 pm pst

Big game. Biggest game of the year so far. The winner will hold the current #2 seed with a tie-breaker in hand. Huge.

We've had some epic games with these guys.

Can't believe I just posted that.

I have a feeling we're going to get a big game out of this guy.

We're going to need lots of points because, damn, the Giants' passing game scares me. A little less if there's none of this:

Game-time decision.

I'm not buying the Eli is elite stuff yet. I think he's very good, just not elite. I'd rate him a 8.5 or 9

I'd rate his wife the same.:

Not bad.

There will be none of this:

Not that it mattered, since, you know ... we're rocking the No. 1 rush defense.

Giants have the most sacks in the NFL this season. Hopefully our line is prepared for that. They definitely won't run on us. They haven't been able to run the ball all season long effectively and it won't happen against the number one ranked run defense. I am worried about the passing game though. Especially if we don't get pressure. Eli can light up a secondary if he gets time.

If we run the ball effectively and don't kill ourselves with penalties and turnovers, we should win this game.

NY+Giants=NYG
11-12-2011, 10:11 AM
Damn look at all the pictures..Our running game is not working. It had issues last year and got worse this year. At least Baas and Andrews will come back. So that's huge for us. If we were going to run it, then that will be the time.

I really don't worry about rankings like that. I remember playing the Ravens and they were ranked very well against the run and we lit them up. That was when we had a god like running game. Now we are at the opposite end of the spectrum now. So I am consistent, I don't care if you are 1 or 32, lol, we still probably won't run the ball well. But I have watched football long enough to know sometimes unexplainable stuff happens. So I will take a wait and see approach.

The key is stop Gore and make Smith beat you. Attack him with ALL our DEs, and see what shakes out.


I don't see this battle of 2nd seed. Say if we win, I think the odds are with our schedule, you can still be the 2nd seed. So I wouldn't call it a battle of second seed. Still way too many games yet against elite teams for us.

Huge game for our pass d to see how it is grading out and if our pass protection is coming along as needed.

I almost want to see a game where Roman has to change the playcalling and air it out just to see if Alex and the Stonehands can make things happen.

Once again another great game day thread borat!

I'm really looking forward to this game. It will be a first real test for our offense and defense to see if we can step it up and air it out and stop the run.

Who is stone hands?

http://blog.sfgate.com/49ers/2011/11/11/alex-smith-and-drops/

Pretty much all the receivers. We're sixth in the league in drops and everyone not named Braylon Edwards has had a hand(pun intended) in making us prolific in that area.

Rosebud
11-12-2011, 12:31 PM
The giants d is going to **** the bed this week, we were aggressive last week and have the talent to be able to shut down the 9ers "on talent alone" which seems to always lead to us running a super vanilla D that sits back in nickel and waits for a chacne to make a play.

This game will come down to whether we're down by too much for Eli to lead us back from or not. So I do still think the giants can pull out the win here, but we'll be ugly-bad for most of the first half.

Rabscuttle
11-12-2011, 02:10 PM
The Stonehands is our assorted group of pass droppers. A couple less drops each Sunday would make a huge difference in our PPG and start opening things up for our running game. Gore and Hunter would be even scarier if the passing game started clicking.

Just hoping it starts happening soon and perhaps the pressure of playing against a team that likes to throw the ball deep like the Giants spurs our guys to get it going.

I remember in this game when it was 38-14 Giants and Strahan was pointing to the scoreboard against T.O. Love him or hate him, I would have loved to see T.O. do the same to him after the Niners took the late lead but sadly, Owens didnt. :(

By the way, it was in this game when some guy is on his knees in front of Strahan on the sideline during the botched FG. It looked like that guy was giving Strahan a blowjob. It was funny as the botched FG. LOL. :)

This is what I was afraid of. We can't stop good passing quarterbacks. We've faced three so far and two out of the three times we got lit up. Manning looks like he's going to have a career day. Alex Smith is going to have to win us this game. Oy.

The Crabs drop and Ginn tip cost us 10 points and perhaps a chance to quit hearing people cry about Alex for a couple of hours.

Madirishman

Time for Harbaugh to make some halftime adjustments so the Niners can get a TD in first possession of 2nd half and start to take over the game.

I totally disagree. Alex was playing solid, you need to keep your foot on the gas. Ginn needs to catch that pass, /discussion. That pick is squarely on his shoulders. No excuse to drop a perfectly placed pass like that. Its why I cringe when I see passes headed in his direction.

Rabscuttle
11-13-2011, 04:54 PM
Delanie has become such a good all around player. Just cleaning up the drops would make him special. I wonder if he is going to be willing to re-sign or will wnat to be a higher priority target somewhere else next season.

abaddon41_80
11-13-2011, 04:54 PM
49ers receivers need to step it up. Ginn costing us at least three, Crabtree didn't get his head around for a sure touchdown and then Crabtree/Edwards both had a chance there.

49erNation85
11-13-2011, 04:56 PM
Dam why do we keep stalling in the red zone ?I'm glad we got 3 , but we need 7 every time instead. 3 points won't win us play off games.

VAfy-ya
11-13-2011, 04:57 PM
Hard to understand why not a jump ball to Edwards instead of a back shoulder throw, but I appreciate the Martz-like 3 straight passes inside the 15. Gotta show teams more to gameplan for.

So if we go down and score , do we need to go for 2points at this point in the game? I hope we can score at least. FG can't do it any more in the season .

49ers receivers need to step it up. Ginn costing us at least three, Crabtree didn't get his head around for a sure touchdown and then Crabtree/Edwards both had a chance there.

Why wouldn't he want to continue to grow and flourish in a 2-TE system? I believe he signed an extension a couple years ago so he should be under contract anyways.

Regarding NFC West going 4-0 today - I saw this on Twitter:

Last time every NFC West/NFC Western team won was 247 Reg Season weeks ago when 49ers, Falcons, Rams, Saints all won in Wk 1, 1997.

I was impressed.

Ness
11-14-2011, 12:50 AM
By the way I think we really need to invest in some speed at safety in the offseason or something. I know everyone can't have a safety like Ed Reed back there as a huge insurance policy and now that I think of it, good safeties that can cover a lot of real estate like Reed are hard to find. Whiter and Goldson seem to be more like the strong safety type. Which is fine, but I feel like we might get burned eventually by the likes of someone like Mike Wallace or some other speedster.

Having a night to sleep on it, this did reminded me of the 80s, when I was young and growing up. Such good 9ers-Giants games back then. Early on, when we were exchanging FGs I thought of Matt Barr some reason. But it was a good game. I have a feeling if our schedule doesn't own us, we may see you guys in the play offs!

The Niners should win at home but they could lose this if they underestimate them. Their defense has been spotty but clutch when needed. Same with their special teams. If the Niners get a double digit lead early, they can't let the Cards linger with an opportunity to come back. Potential trap game but I like how Harbaugh is keeping this team grounded. They are still hungry.

When healthy, Gore gashes the Cards too. Hope he can make an impact this week.

Great game guys! You guys were the better team today. You deserved to win. Maybe one day we can get rid of the draw play in the red zone. You guys will win the division early it seems! Good for you!

It's kinda sad how bad our redzone O is. I jokingly said the giants needed to score from further out if they wanted to get TDs instead of FGs, then the giants scored twice from further out and that joke became painfully truthful. It's why seeing that bomb to mario miss was so painfully. Can't wait until barden breaks into the rotation so that we can just stick 4 guys out there who are 6'+ with Nicks, Cruz, Ballard and Barden.

PS Good game guys, really kept my eye on Justin Smith this game, just for Abs, and he did great against the interior OL. He's like a 3-4 version of Tuck, great run stuffer, really crafty power pass rusher with the ability to lineup against different guys and go to work in space and up the middle. Add another pass rusher and a little more speed to the secondary and that D will be able to keep the team competitive for a long time regardless of what happens on O.

Alex Smith looked good, still haven't seen him have to carry that team with the game on the line, but he showed that he can be trusted to move the offense between the 20's. Which is nice to see, because I remember the long Rodgers/Smith debates back when they were just coming out. Really the only other things he needs to show before he's really a franchise caliber QB, are that he can carry the team into the endzone on his arm, deliver with the game on the line (meaning so late in the game that he won't get another chance if he doesn't deliver) and that he will consistently deliver when called upon. All things he will get tested on this season. Really glad to see him putting it together the way I thought he would when he was working with Norv.

I would sit Gore against the Cardinals. Hunter is damn good and Dixon isnt bad either considering that he's the 3rd stringer. I would rather have Gore against the Ravens for Thursday night on Thanksgiving instead of against the Cardinals. Besides, having Gore rest against the crappy teams and be 100% for the playoffs is more important too.

We shouldnt have a letdown against the Cards but im worried about Skelton as he's been on fire in the 4th quarter the last two games. I would definitely double Fitzgerald and let others beat me. Put Rogers and Whitner on him and let everyone else beat us.

Good post. I disagree about needing speed in the secondary though. Its not like we were burned repeatedly for long gains on go routes, we just happened to be on the wrong side of some beautiful placed passes by Eli. The one to Nicks, Brown had decent coverage and the safety was a little late. But it was just a beautiful pass by Eli. We just drafted Culliver who is a sub 4.4 guy. And Manningham, who isnt a burner, had a couple of steps on him on that miss by Eli. Good route running and quickness will get you open, i dont care how fast the guy is covering you. Brown is a 4.4 guy, Brock ran a 4.38 coming out. Speed isnt the problem. Guys just have to use better technique and be quicker in their transition. Look like there were some blown coverages too. Goldson had a near pick and he and Whitner were right there on anything deep. Idk what's going on with Reggie Smith but it seems he's always late with his reads and his rotation to the ball here recently. Its almost a given that he's going to give up a play to his side of the field when he's comes on. We need to execute better in the zone. Against the better QBs, it just seems were a half-second late alot of the time breaking on the ball and anticipating routes.

Won't show up in the box score, but I thought Alex did a good job on two 3rd and longs to pick up nice chunks and set up FGs that were manageable.
