Let them talk. Their team has to come into one of the most hostile places to play in the world and beat the Saints who are 10-2, NFC South Champions, with a defense who is balling out, and Drew friggin Brees. ?
Man, those people act like Drew Brees has the pocket movement ability of Dan Marino's grandpa.
They tout their team's 8-0 record against "pocket passers" as some sort of evidence that they are inherently built to stop the Saints. Sorry, but those "pocket passers" include guys like Baker Mayfield, Andy Dalton, Bad Jameis, Kyle Allen, and whoever the Redskins trotted out. I'm sure they could beat Danny Wuerffel, too.
I can only pray the 49ers staff is even one-fourth as naive.
I can't tell you how many times the other team has had some sort of pass rush supposedly built to shut down the Saints, that hasn't. J.J. Watt didn't lay a finger on Drew. Shaq Barrett was on some kind of all-world tear and did absolutely nothing. As long as our guys show up healthy and motivated, I expect a good game, win or lose. Terron Armstead is supposed to be back. And as hard as I have been on Nick Easton replacing Andrus Peat, he has done a good job so far and is better in protection.
Funky Whiners have worst, most arrogant fan base in the league when they are winning. They haven't won in years and now they are world beaters. Apparently they believe they are going to beat our butts because brees is old and can't move. If ever there was a time to hang a 50 burger on them, this is it. Hope we get vintage Brees on Sunday to prove them wrong.
And I'm still not over 2011. We need ultimate revenge for that.
