I think we would have won ultimately, but the 49ers would have had a lot of success on the ground.

I think it's naive to think that's how another Hawks vs. Niners game would go, especially for the NFC Championship game at their house.
Sure we crushed them here, but that IMO was an aberration, not the norm.........and more of a product of;
- Niners coming off a huge exhausting win on the road against the Pats
- Hawks coming off of two blowout wins where we rested our starters in the 4th Qtr.
- Two years of pent up frustration of losing to the niners by our players and fans being unleashed
Believe me, we'd be fighting for our lives if we had to go to SF this weekend........and I certainly don't think our D could stop SF's run game. We couldn't even stop Atlanta's terrible run game.

Yes you can. And I'm afraid you must.
