Well, a little over two months after the 49ers and Giants faced off in a great Week 10 contest, our two teams meet again battling for a spot in the Super Bowl. Both of our teams were underdogs this weekend, although having to go on the road to Lambeau Field is certainly a mighty task. Congratulations on an awesome performance against the Packers. Apparently 15-1 doesn't get you as much as it used to.
I thought I'd open up a FanPost for some friendly discussion about the upcoming matchup. Both of our teams are playing solid football right now and there have been changes since they last met. Both teams were dealing with a variety of injuries. The 49ers have since released Braylon Edwards due to injury and ineffectiveness. Alex Smith has sort of taken a big step forward. The defense has come together rather nicely.
So, if you have any questions or comments, feel free to post them in here. Ideally this will be more about civil discussion than too much smack talk.
I will leave you with something Coach Harbaugh said after the Week 10 game. In his post-game locker room speech, he said about the Giants, "That's a classy team over there. That's a darn good team, that's a disciplined team. Good chance they'll be playing long into the playoffs, too." So, I'd imagine he's not shocked by the Giants upset of Green Bay. It should be a great game this Sunday.
