Welcome to the NFC playoff recap -- back -- like the game's most refreshing -- I'm Curtis Conway and Ryan needs to recap the NFC championship game and what do -- San Francisco. To the Super -- Atlantic it and get the offense going in that second half. The biggest adjustments that the niners may not -- I think they did a great job understanding how Atlanta was attacking them in the first half and do what they think they recognize they were getting explosive plays in the passing game. So what they did -- it changed your coverage up. They'll -- the safeties to play a little bit -- deeper -- -- corners play a little bit soft and kept everything in front of them so they can run up and make tackles and and also defensively they did a great job shut down the run game so. I thought collectively they did. A solid job in the second half making some good adjustments to really take away that the pass game really shut down Matty ice and get the ball vertically down field. No point in the second half what -- did a nice job keeping calling athletic from burning them on the ground. But -- think I focused a little too much on the. You know I don't think -- -- and here's why this read option out -- just it was something that most defense hasn't seen so. You have to pick your poison if you gonna make cabinet mama you got to -- Frank Gore once you put one -- PG and we saw that today. -- only carried the ball twice he gave the ball on the read option to Frank Gore just about every time so when you look at that offense. Defense is having caught up to that office you think they focused on any -- a -- a quarterback ruckus over a 180 yards. You have to focus on that but again. That alternates so hard to stop right now because they don't have a lot of film -- but I think we'll move forward. Defense will catch up to a board announced that sisco picked the right time to start running. And right time to use Frank -- always makes it look so easy a big part of this land was Vernon Davis who really didn't do much. This season but he is on fire in this game six under several hundred yards and this one why didn't have such a big game. You get a big game this cabinet -- start to -- his way I think he had not been some coverages to create some mismatches and he did a great job running -- I mean you know Vernon Davis is one of the a -- tight ends that are out there I just don't think. Japanese had the opportunity to find as much of the defense have taken him away in other games in this particular game. In what they said you know we'll let Vernon Davis has one on one matches out match ups in the expletive. Absolutely if you look at when -- that took over their first game against Chicago he had eight at us now all of a sudden like right to say they have to take him out. Who started but who emerged Crabtree all but I have a great year so Crabtree finished the year into the playoffs. On fire and all of a sudden you got a slowdown Crabtree. Vernon Davis there. They're the -- Vernon Davis he knows what today I got out and obviously very disappointed. What do you think that they need to do to get over the hump next season. -- run the football it is clear because if you look at big game last week they rushed for over a 167. New York this week not so well that Michael Turner went down. Any time you have two big play guys outside you could go to ball to them at any time against one -- one and probably 80% of the time they're gonna come down what the football can you imagine a one game -- and we found OK now. How -- isolate those guys he didn't. What you do that once you start to run the ball effectively Julio Jones Roddy White Tony Gonzalez -- one. Oh my god I'll take that -- -- -- -- are wonderful ball more effectively next year. This office would bet you he thought they play well these -- courtesy of my seventeen. You -- adjust to the offense -- gonna have to find a way to get to solidify their defense and until they do that you can put up all the points you won world to give rookie running game but if you can't play defense -- in the damn -- the running game helps when you're up like that. Because if you can't look at Wachovia ranked fifth off. Let's you don't run the ball and you take a lot of clock which -- you put more pressure on offense to score points so you can run the football effectively. By seventeen points you should be able to win affable. And it looks like they're losing Tony Gonzales. And in May be dad what do way to go out that you guys had us down a great run. Great -- yeah admittedly the -- let's see them have a falcon this year. I know I that. Well we'll go zero to a new that I hate to see -- Our right that's Canada and that's an SE recap bracket by Coors Light game's most refreshing air for Ryan anchored sat out the next.
