49ers to Make It Rain

It's only Wednesday, but a big recently developing sub-plot to the 49ers-Giants contest Sunday is the weather. The San Francisco Bay Area is expected to have rain Thursday through Tuesday, with showers present during the game on Sunday. A field that has already proven to be a factor against pass-heavy offenses will be extra soggy for the visiting Giants.

Even New York has admitted the challenge the expected weather could present for the Giants passing game in this recent Post article. The 49ers ability to take away the run, and the weather's ability to take away the pass could bode well for San Francisco. The Niners are known as a ground-and-pound team anyway, with multiple heavy formations -- they love to run the ball.

In addition to the 49ers offense, their want to throw high percentage passes and not depend on 50-yard passes down field is a more plausible strategy in the rain. It's going to be an interesting game; and this rain could help produce another instant classic like the one we saw in the Divisional Round.
