49ers Vs. Saints, NFL Playoffs 2012: Will Lance Moore Suit Up Against The Niners?

After going a perfect 5-5 on touchdown drives in the second half Saturday against the Detroit Lions, it's obvious that the New Orleans Saints' offense is potent. What's even more obvious than that is that the Saints offense has been this potent for a long time now, but that's besides the point.

The status of wide receiver Lance Moore is still in question for the Black and Gold as he sat out last week's game with a hamstring injury. Will it really affect how the Saints do business offensively? Well, if the Lions game was any indication, it certainly doesn't look like it.

Moore hauled in 52 catches for 627 yards and 8 touchdown scores this year, so to say his presence will not be missed is probably going too far. But with a more than capable trio of receivers in Robert Meachem, Marques Colston and Devery Henderson, running back Darren Sproles, tight end Jimmy Graham and even fullback Jed Collins, Drew Brees won't have a shortage on dangerous targets next weekend for the 49ers to prepare for.

Moore is a serious danger downfield and a valued weapon for their offense, but if he doesn't suit up against the 49ers I think the Saints will probably be OK.
