Nick Cole points out that all four 49ers wins have come against sub 500 teams this season. Is there a reason for concern playing at three into -- Giants team that as the NFL's number two offense. Nick I'd be more concerned if San Francisco wasn't playing well against teams with losing records. With the exception of a week three loss to Minnesota the 49ers have dominated to the point that the defense is second in the NFL rankings. The best move up -- the -- for the Giants last Sunday against Cleveland was the resurgence of the running game with Ahmad Bradshaw all rolling for 200 yards. Look I'm not expecting brought try to enjoy that type of success against the 49ers defense allowing just 81 point four yards a game. But it sound a ground attack will keep San Francisco for being able to tee off against Eli Manning like in last year's NFC title game. At mr. underscore Albanian wants to know what type of impact might a sprained middle finger on Alex Smith's throwing him make. Mr. Albanian you've touched upon one of the big story lines entering this contest.

I can tell you that's a great place to start -- Francisco's offensive line paved the way for the 49ers to become the first team in NFL history. With 300 rushing and 300 passing yards in the same game during last week to beat down the Buffalo. And that performance came against one of the NFL's highest paid defensive lines. The 49ers are gonna need another great effort like that against the Giants. New York it's been a defense to tackle because of injuries. This could be an area where the 49ers try to pound between the tackles with Frank Gore and former Giants running back Brandon Jacobs. The other key battle to watch. 49ers tackles Joseph Staley and Anthony Davis trying to handled giants' defense events Jason Pierre Paul Osi Umenyiora and Justin Tuck. The 49ers may have placed emphasis on the short passing game to put New York's NASCAR pass rush in neutral.
