What a game. The game last night was such a roller coaster ride of highs and lows for me being a Niners fan and I'm sure it was for many of you Giants fans as well. While this game did not quite have the same feel as some of the previous battles between these two storied franchises it did provide quite a bit of nail biting excitement and excruciating pain (mostly for me). Those were two teams playing some great football and if you guys hadn't stripped the ball at the end they might still be going back and forth in the 30th overtime period right now.
What can I say about our defense? They played their asses off and held Eli and one of the more deadly offenses in check for most of the night. The giants defense wasn't too shabby either holding us to 1 third down conversion for the entire game. We just could not break free from your secondary last night. Vernon Davis was the only guy who got anything going and when he was doubled our offense sputtered.
Victor Cruz absolutely abused everyone who lined up across him. The frustration of seeing him make play after play while our own receivers caught about one pass all night was gut wrenching. And then there was the two blunders when Eli actually made a mistake but we couldn't make the interception like we've done all year because we ran into our own guys. But those things happen and there were missed opportunities for both sides.
And Kyle Freaking Williams. I really like the guy and he's got some serious skills to be a slot receiver but man...fool me once and all that stuff.
Congratulations on a well deserved, hard fought victory. You guys took advantage of our mistakes and we didn't take advantage of yours. Go kick the snot out of Tom Brady and Belicheck. I'll be rooting for you guys!
