A few things I noticed watching the Saints

The bad news is, the Saints passing game was clicking, and their run game was very effective against the Lions. However, they will be playing a top defense, and take away team in the 49ers. I seen the lions drop multiple interceptions. We will not. Also the fumble that got whislted dead, should have been 6 points for Detroit. Basically the Saints can be stopped.

I believe we will shut down any attempts in running the ball. They will not be able to produce on the ground against the 49ers. Also the 49ers MUST maintain discipline against the play action pass. The Saints use play action 80% it seems. Our secondary MUST not be over agressive in run support. That will be a key component in us slowing their passing attack.

The Lions run game was not existant. 7 carries for 29 yards. We have to get our 1,2 punch in Gore, and Hunter going. I even expect to see a few Anthony Dixon sightings in short yardage situations. I notice Dixon has been bringing it lately

Last but definitely not least, getting our front seven to put pressure on Drew Brees will be the difference between a win, and a loss. Also we must do some real game planning for TE Grahm. The mismatches he will pose on any LB we have. At 6'6" 250+ his athleticism can be a problem against anyone. Darren Sproles out of the backfield on swing passes, and check downs could prove to be deadly. We MUST assign a player to shadow him for the duration of the game. Maybe Navorro Bowman has the speed to stay with him sideline to sideline.

All in all I am preparedto see an epic game next week. As unbiased as possble I really think the 49ers defense, run game, and passing efficiency will provail. GO NINERS!
