shocking. I had thought the Saints actually might be the ones to win it all.

I think the "prevent" defense has seen its best days. These new passing offenses completely obliterate it...almost every time.

Except for our SuperBowl game ( Steelers versus Cardinals ), I must say that, since then,
this 49'ers/Saints game was the BEST NFL game I have seen, in a long, long, time.
Smith was flawless against the more experienced Brees.

I must admit, congrats to the 49ers entire "OFFENSIVE" Line and coaches.
-unlike our very own Steelers' useless, and embarassing Offense coaching this past season. :(

OTOH the Saints D-coordinator is being blasted in New Orleans for blitzing on the long pass to Davis on the last possession

Regardless of whether aggression is in the DNA of the Saints' defense, defensive coordinator Gregg Williams and his staff absolutely shouldn't have been blitzing Smith on second-and-10 from the 49ers' 33-yard line, with 40 seconds left.

As contrary as two-deep coverage might be to their nature, and as much as the collective defense might break out in hives if asked to execute the scheme, if ever there was a time to run it, it was with 40 seconds remaining and the opponent 67 yards away from the end zone.

It's flag football - a good QB can shred any defense in the last 2 minutes under today's rules

Saints fans in Atlanta are pretty upset about the loss

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Two men who were rooting for the 49ers over the Saints were shot in the parking lot of an Applebee's restaurant in unincorporated Duluth Saturday night, according to Gwinnett County Police

Police responding to a report of shots fired in the parking lot of the Applebee’s at 2085 Pleasant Hill Drive, found Christopher Middleton, 30, of Stone Mountain, with a gunshot wound to the abdomen. He was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center in critical condition. They also dicovered Corey Adams, 30, of Duluth with a minor graze wound to his head. He was treated on the scene and released.

Adams told Channel 2 Action News that he was at the restaurant celebrating with a friend before the shooting happened.

He said he and his friend were watching an NFL playoff game and rooting for the San Francisco 49ers. He said a New Orleans Saints fan took offense to his cheering and had words with him....

Investigators said all three men had been inside the Applebee’s watching a football game. Ayro became upset with Middleton and Adams and made a comment that he would be back for them and left the restaurant, police said. A short time later
, Ayro confronted the two men in the parking lot and fired on them with a handgun.

i had to watch the 2nd half again on replay. what a game. it had just about everything one would want in playoff football.

kind of ashame we dont get to see a rematch of the season opener with GB vs NO.

but then again, its ashame we dont get to see a healthy steelers team kick the shit out of the ravens for a 3rd time in a row after blasting through the defenseless pats.

such is life.

NO vs SF might go down as the best game in this years playoffs.
