Can Alex Smith and the 49ers shock the Saints??

Lawrence Dushensky of the NFL blog This Given Sunday asked me six questions about the 49ers. The theme of his line of questioning was this: Can the 49ers shock the Saints? And how could they possibly do it?

I’m linking my six answers to my six questions at the bottom. To be clear, I do think the Niners can “shock” the Saints. I think the Niners will win 17-16.

I’m expecting the Niners defense to hold the Saints to fewer than 20 points – they’ll give up just one touchdown and a few field goals and in the process they’ll show the nation they’re a championship defense.

The 49ers will force the Saints to play 49er football, and that’s a game the 49ers will win.
