The San Francisco 49ers rode the NFL’s 4th-best defense all the way to an NFC West crown and a first-round bye in the playoffs. And chances are they’ll be leaning on that defense heavily again on Saturday when Drew Brees and the record-setting Saints head to the Bay Area for a Divisional Round matchup.
Safety Donte Whitner will be in the thick of the action as a member of a secondary that will be called upon often on Saturday. He spoke with our Scott Graham about the challenge of facing all of New Orleans’ various weapons.
(Listen to Donte Whitner’s interview from 1/13/12)
Kevin Kugler, Mark Malone and Scott Kaplan (sidelines) will have all the action from San Francisco as the 49ers host the Saints in Game One of our Divisional Round doubleheader on Saturday. Coverage begins at 4PM Eastern and will be followed immediately by Patriots-Broncos from Foxboro.
