Posted by Scott Kegley on October 11, 2009 – 10:39 AM

101109-atl-header1

It’s a cold overcast day at Candlestick as the 49ers (3-1) face the Falcons (2-1).  The Falcons are coming off a bye weeks so they’ve essentially had two weeks to prepare for this game against their former NFC West rivals.  Take a look at the injury report for both teams.  The inactives will be posted roughly 90 minutes prior to the game.

Inactives:

Atlanta: CB Tye Hill, FB Verron Hayes, S Antoine Harris, LB Spencer Adkins, T Garrett Reynolds, G Quinn Ojinnaka, DT Vance Walker, QB John Park Wilson (3rd QB).

49ers: CB Allen Rossum, RB Frank Gore, S Reggie Smith, LB Jeff Ulbrich, OLB Marques Harris, C Cody Wallace, DT Ricky Jean Francois, QB Nate Davis (3rd QB).

FIRST QUARTER:

The 49ers defense started strong by forcing a 3 and out on Atlanta’s first drive.  On 3rd and 4, Ryan’s pass fell incomplete intended for Marty Booker.

Arnaz Battle fielded the kick and the 49ers drive began at the 13-yard line.  Glen Coffee got the carry on 1st down but was stopped for no gain.  Coffee picked up6 on 2nd down straight up the middle.  On 3rd down, Mike Peterson tipped the ball and it was then intercepted by Brian Williams.  Falcons ball at the SF 21.

Haralson and Franklin swarmed Turner on 1st down after a gain of 2.  Ryan’s 2nd down pass was thrown behind Tony Gonzalez. Ryan had all the time in the world to throw on 3rd down and hit Roddy White on a hitch for the 1st down.  On 1st and goal from the 7, Turner ran straight up the middle, breaking a few tackles for the touchdown.

Falcons 7 – 49ers 0

Delanie Walker was back deep for the kick, but the ball went out of the end zone for a touchback.   Lofton and Abraham combined to stop Coffee for a gain of 1 on 1st down.  Hill hit Morgan on a screen, but it was read well for no gain.  Hill was hit as he threw on 3rd down and his pass for Davis fell incomplete.  Lee’s punt was low, but Robinson closed quickly and made a nice tackle.  Atlanta will take over at their own 34.

Ryan found Gonzalez on 1st down out near midfield.  After the play, Atlanta was called for a late hit so it will essentially be 1st and 10 again.  Justin Smith got into the backfield quick and stopped Turner for a loss of 1.  Ryan hit Gonzalez against the coverage of Spikes for a gain of about 5.  3rd and 6 for the ATL 36, Ryan hit Finneran who managed to get just enough for the 1st down.  Big run by Turner on 1st down as he picked up 9 yards straight up the middle.   Ryan hit Roddy White down to the SF 31.  Touchdown as Ryan hit White who had a ton of room in the right side of the end zone.

Falcons 14 – 49ers 0

Hill got the 49ers drive off to a good start, scrambling up the middle for a gain of 15.  Hill’s pass fell incomplete for Vernon Davis on 1st down.  Hill tried his other tight end on 2nd down, but couldn’t connect with Walker.  Hill hit Morgan who broke the tackle for the first down and then some as he raced down the right sideline and was tripped up inside the 2.  It was a gain of 61 on the play.  The 49ers went with a play action on 1st down, but Coffee was covered in the end zone so Hill threw it away.  Coffee ran the ball for no gain on 2nd down.  Hill tossed to Coffee who out ran the defenders to the left and got in the end zone.

Falcons 14 – 49ers 7

101109-jmorgan-header

Eric Weems took the kick for the Atlanta but was swarmed at the 19-yard line.  Norwood took the toss to the left on 1st down, cutting it back inside for a gain of 7.  Tuner ran to the right on 2nd down, but couldn’t outrun Willis, picking up 2.  On 3rd and 1, Norwood took the direct snap, but was stopped for a minimal gain so the chain gang had to come out and measure.  It was very close, but the Falcons were given the 1st down.

*** Injury update: RT Adam snyder has a thigh contusion and his return is questionable.

On 2nd and 10. Turner bounced the ball out right, but was stopped for a short gain.  3rd and 9, Ryan found White again to pick up the 1st down after a gain of 12.  A false start by the Falcons will make it 1st and 15.  Ryan’s pass was too high for Gonzalez and it will be 2nd and 15 from the ATL 37.  After a run for about 5 yards, ATL was flagged for holding and will back up to their own 27-yard line.  On 2nd and 25, Smith hit Ryan forcing the errant throw intended for Gonzalez.  Atlanta went with the draw on 3rd down, but Norwood slipped after picking up just one and they’ll have to punt.  That will bring on end to the first quarter.

SECOND QUARTER:

Coffee starts the drive with a nice 12-yard run up the middle out by midfield.

*** Injury update:  Ray McDonald has an ankle sprain and his return is questionable.

Coffee had another nice carry, bouncing it out to the left for a gain of 5.  On 3rd and 5, Hill scrambled left and lowered his shoulder into the defender and will be very close to a 1st down.  The 49ers will go for it on 4th and short.  Hill faked the handoff and hit Davis for a nice gain of 18 yards.  Coffee picked up just 2 on 1st down as there really wasn’t much of a hole in the middle.  On 3rd down, Hill floated it for Bruce near the right pylon, but the pass was out of bounds.  Nedney came in and drilled the 39-yard field goal.

Falcons 14 – 49ers 10

The Falcons will start their drive at the SF 23.  On 2nd down, Lawson knocked the ball away from Norwood and Michael Lewis recovered it by the left sideline.  Atlanta will challenge the play.  After the review, the ruling on the field will stand.

On 1st, Hill hit Davis for a gain of 3.  On 3rd and 7, Hill was sacked and the 49ers couldn’t do anything with the great field position as Lee comes in to punt.  Lee’s punt though was downed at the 4 by Jason Hill.

Turner was swarmed on 1st down for a gain of 2.  On 3rd and 4, Ryan hit White who ran away from Nate Clements.  90 yards later and the Falcons go up 21-10.

Falcons 21 – 49ers 10

Delanie Walker took the kick out near the 40-yard line.  The ball came loose and Atlanta recovered.  It looked as if the ball came out after Walker’s arm hit the ground.  The 49ers would have won the challenge but were out of timeouts.

Tuner made the 49ers pay, taking the first down handoff down to the SF 5.  Turner punched it in from three yards out and the Falcons now have a commanding lead.

Falcons 28 – 49ers 10.

On 1st down, Coffee ran for a gain of 2.  Hill’s pass on 2nd down was thrown to Davis who wasn’t looking and the ball was nearly picked off.  Hill’s pass was way off the mark on 3rd down and Lee will come in to punt.

Delanie Walker was called for a personal foul, giving Atlanta an additional 15 yards.  Atlanta will have the ball at the 46.  Atlanta gave 5 of those yard back after a false start on 1st down.  On 2nd down, Ryan hit Justin Peelle for the 1st down.  Ryan then picked up another first down, hitting Gonzalez for a gain of 10.   Tuner broke a tackle and picked up 5 yards on 1st down.  The 49ers really have no answer for Roddy White who grabbed Ryan’s pass at the 1.  Turner punches it in and this game is getting away very quickly.

Falcons 35 – 49ers 10

Hill picked up the first down after a gain of 12 on a scramble.  Hill was sacked by Abraham.  Davis was called for holding on the next play.  With just 3 seconds left in the half, they’ll hand the ball to Coffee and run out the clock.

THIRD QUARTER:

The 49ers started their drive from 17 and Hill hit Morgan for a gain out to the 29.  Hill then hit Walker who made a nice adjustment to the ball and got some more yards after the catch and SF will have a 1st down at the ATL 32.  Hill’s 3rd down pass sailed over the head of Morgan and Nedney will come in to attempt the 48-yard field goal.  The field goal missed and Atlanta will have great field position at the 38-yard line

White continues to kill the 49ers, hauling in Ryan’s pass in 49ers territory.  Haralson got in the backfield and tackled Turner for a loss of 3.  Turner then broke several tackles, picking up the 1st down.  Turner was then stopped for no gain and Michael Lewis was injured on the play.  Roman has come on to replace Lewis after he was helped to the sideline.  Ryan hit Gonzalez on 3rd down.  Dre’ Bly made the tackle but picked up a face mask penalty.  The infraction gives the Falcons a 1st down.  Turner coughed up the ball but recovered it himself.  Dre’ Bly picked off Ryan on the next play and proceeded to showboat and high step.  White tracked him down from behind and Bly coughed up the ball himself.  Falcons maintain possession at the SF 44.  Ryan hits Gonzalez for the first down after a gain of 9.

*** Injury update: Lewis has a concussion and is out for the game.

Spikes had good coverage on Gonzalez on 3rd down and Elam will come on to attempt the field goal.  The 40-yard kick is good.

Falcons 38 – 49ers 10

The 49ers drive will begin from the 24-yard line.  Hill took a shot deep for Brandon Jones on 1st down, but it was well overthrown.  Hill threw deep for Morgan, but it was way off the mark once again.  Hill hit his check down to Coffee who could not pick up the first down.  Lee came in to punt and after good coverage, the Falcons will have the ball at the 29.

101109-glencoffee-header

Turner was stopped for a minimal gain on first down.  The Falcons were called for offensive PI on 3rd down and will back up, making it 3rd and 13 from the 26.  Ryan’s pass was well of the mark and the 49ers forced the punt.

After two incompletions, Hill hit Coffee for a gain of 5. Lee will have to punt.

On 3rd and short, Ryan picked up the first down on a QB sneak.

FOURTH QUARTER:

Jason Snelling moved the chains again on 3rd and short, fighting for extra yardage.  The 49ers continue not to get any pressure on Ryan.  The QB play faked and found Jenkins for a gain of 20.  Turner nearly got another 1st down on the very next play.  Spikes and Willis mad the tackle.  Snelling though came on and picked up the 1st.  A nice run by Norwood and the Falcons have a 1st and goal at the 6.

*** Injury update: Tarell Brown has a groin injury and will not return.

Goldson was called for PI and since it happened in the end zone, the ball will be placed at the 1.  Ryan scrambled for the touchdown.

Falcons 45 – 49ers 10

On 2nd down, Hill hit Davis for a gain of 6.  Hill hit Battle for the 3rd down conversion.  I have to run down to the field now.  We’ll have reaction from Singletary and some of the players after the game.

    What in the world happened today? The team did not come out to play the Falcons, they were already thinking of their bye week! How friggin embarrassing for the 49er faithful fans who want them to play well so badly; and they you have ridiculous plays like the showboating that Bly made for really doing nothing at all! When will we get an O-line that can protect the QB? When will they stop focusing on Gore and come out to play for 4 quarters of football…so sad for the fans today. I feel for Coach Singeltary..stick it to them coach, they do not deserve any time off!!

    Are you kidding me we looked worse then last year today. I sure hope we can pull our heads out of our rear ends over the bye week. We have a tough schedule after the bye and if we play like we did today we will be 3-8.

    The thing that kills the most, is that during the first time out Mike brought them together and challenge them to rise against adversity and they responded by giving up on every aspect of the ball game. Winners isn’t the team that gets away with the W, winners are the players who leave it all on the field, who give it there all, and today the niners lost not because of the scoreboard but because of their loss of faith in themselves and each other.

    I don’t know if Crabtree was a distraction or we just look past Atlanta, but we need to do some work in the bye week and get ready for Houston. I hope everybody didn’t think that we where just going to runaway with the NFC? We hit the wall at the right time, right before the bye. I’m confident Coach Singletary with right the ship.

    Man what the hell happened? C’mon Niners if you guyz are gonna lose then lose by a close margin dont get skunked…Nate Clements messed this up for the defense cuz Roddy white owned him all day. I’m disappointed, Singletary better whip this team into shape cuz I wanna go 4-2 against the sorry Texans in 2 weeks, hope Andre Johnson doesnt rape Clements next game, idiot clements.

    WOW!! Can you say SELF-DESTRUCTION!!!! I don’ t know what the heck happen to our boys out there today. The Niners for whatever reason just could not get things going no matter what. Let’s face it when our Defense doesn’t come through forget it Niners are through. Ryan held a clinic today and was a pass happy fool!!!

    Well a loss is a loss let’s hope our Niners can regroup after the by week and get back into action. We all know what they are capable of when they play football.
    Gore will be back and maybe we may get a glimpse of Crabtree. Still have a lot of football season left. Remember back when the Niners last won there Super Bowl in 95, I remember a horrible game against the Eagles it was awful…so let’s just move on!

    Let’s keep the Pride Going Faithful!!!

    That was a horrible showing….. Defense definitely did not show up, I wonder were they still in the locker room? Dre Bly should have been benched the rest of the game.

    the blame for this failure began with Nate Clements and his bad coverage followed by persecution of the poor old Mark roman. Subsequently all the tackles gave Turner failed to cold especially Takeo Spikes.
    In this juago felt sorry, I hope they serve the bye week to improve against Houston
    I forgot to say that offensive line stinks like Brandon Jones exaggerated to give as much money as slot having someone is better as Arnaz Battle

    We played looked like a High School team playing a professional team we must play better than this we have a good team but we just lost today I still do feel that the whole crabtree signing did throw a monkey wrench in prep for this week but you must learn from everything so I hope we will do better next

    good game from the defense. the offensive play calling sucks, and that qb we have is a bum. we need to get rid of the conservative play calling and set up the team to be successful. the 49ers need to consider picking up that qb we had a while back, i think his name is garcia. wouldnt be a bad thing to do, at least he can and will make things happen on the field. im disappointed with the play call and the qb, other than that, the 49ers played well over all with what they have been given by the coaching staff.

    Dre Bly, what was that hand behind the head routine after the pick? You need a serious reality check. That’s not TEAM ball. And from what I know about Coach Singletary, you’ll be hearing just that for quite a while. WINNERS FINISH!

    This was a terrible game all around. Offense looked terrible with the conservative play calling. Offensive couldnt block a high school teams pass rush. How can you run the ball when you have no blocking? Then the passing game as it has been all season is terrible. How many balls did Hill either over throw the receiver or throw the ball into the dirt? I knew it from game 1, the defense can only get you so far. They did great over the first 4 games, but today was horrible. Dre Bly, is not deion. Why are you showboating when you are down 25 points? Hope you hear about that!! The offense needs to finally step up and help carry the load. I thought we were contenders, but today opened my eyes and made me realize that we are faaaaar away. We need a new offensive game plan or we will be seeing more of these types of games.. Better work very hard during the bye week or its another looooong season.

    no way jeff garcia “was” just as bad when he was here.. he didnt make anything happen now that he’s went other places he does things but not when he was here.. he sucked! We need to try and get a playmaker..i think we have a play maker in alex smith if he could just get a season under his belt.. who cares if we lose the rest of the season..get alex comfortable he has the arm and he proved to be an awesome quarterback in the ncaa.. plus they’ve already said alex is a better quarterback in practice and overall. well just give his job back.. shawn hill sucks..he;s patchetic.. and im getting tired of the same ole stuff.

    I do not think you can blame that on shaun hill. When we got down our young players gave up. You can just see it by our teams reactions.
    No one hustled on their routes. I am very disappointed about that. I think these guys would do anything for coach sing. I know I would play my butt off for him no matter what the score is, and i am just very disappointed by the effort that they showed when we were down.

  30. By 49ers4life15 on Oct 11, 2009 | Reply

    and we got some serious problems on our o-line. You guys can say all you want about the bad balls by shaun hill, but when you are worried about making mistakes and you have to worry about how your o-line wont even give you time that will give any buddy trouble throwing the ball. Look at Brady against the jets. The jets had him flustered the whole game and made him look like an average quarterback

    It’s good this butt kicking happened this early in the season. The loss to the Vikings was a “good” loss if there can be such a thing because our team played with effort, skill and heart until the final whistle. Quite frankly, this game showed more about out TRUE team character and personality than it did about our football ability. We QUIT…no line blocking or pass protection, receivers running routes at 70% effort, our QB getting frustrated and angry instead of showing composure and leadership, the D line not firing off the ball, poor pass coverage, missed tackles and assignments, too many penalties, too many turn overs, missed field goals… Magical Mike better realize that this team is no where near what their prior 3-1 record indicated. So it’s the bye week. If Singletary really wants to send a message he should forget about “earned” days off, work their tails off, substitute some backups for starters at practice, and break this film down and point out EVERY incident where a player OR coach didn’t do his job and WAKE THIS TEAM UP. The past is gone…it’s the future that is NOW the concern. It’s a young team that must define WHO and WHAT it REALLY IS…that must happen now.

    Its easy to point fingers, its even easier to blame the coaches who dont have to put pads on and play. Pointing fingers is easy.

    Whats hard?

    Believing in yourself. Believing that playing the game the way your coach is asking you to will lead you to victory. Believing you are a professional. Thats hard.

    Im asking this team to believe in football. real tackling. finishing plays. Getting beat and hustling downfield anyway.

    Those core beliefs are what make you a winner.

    Dust yourselves off, leave your egos behind and believe that you can win the next game you are blessed by God to play.

    I know thats hard to do, but you guys have the luxury of being a 49er. The dream of many, you live.

    Earn it guys.

    Everyone loses, not everyone believes they can win in the long run.

    BELIEVE IT. BE A WINNER. TODAY.

    God bless you guys, dont kick your fans like this. We deserve better and so do you. Lets make a change for the better the next time we are blessed to see another day of football.

    Lets not blame this on Clements or the entire offence. The niners got down early due to mistakes and they could not run their style of offence. Only 12 carries by Coffee…..That is not 49er football. Clements coverage was ok, but tackling by the entire team was bad. The 1st touchdown to White was zone coverage picked apart.

    I still have faith the niners will be winning in the future. To me, this felt like a flukey outing. Too much bad stuff going on that there was no chance to recover.

    the niners should have picked up a quarterback michael vick would have worked . singletary thinks hes gonna be able to run over teams hes wrong when crabtree returns whos gonna throw to him at least vick could scramble and make things happen we do not have a qb. also think clements stinks pay him big money he gets burnt. secondary is definetly a big weak spot .we get excited and this is same old team .

    I had to turn the game off yesterday before I had mental breakdown.I don’t know what happened yesterday.Did the whole team go out to club the night before to celebrate the victory before they actually won the game? At the start of the first quarter you could just sense this was not going to be a forty niner day.

    I think this loss really exposed our secondary for what it truly is= weak. Until they show me otherwise I say it is suspect.

    The Niners have the Texans in two weeks in which I expect a comeback win.But after that they travel to the Colts for a huge test.

    The whole defense is going to be put to another major test with highly potent offense of the Colts.I hope they don’t become unraveled like yesterdays poor showing.I am paying good money for my seats at Candlestick and I WANT WINNERS.Without a highly potent offense like the Pats,Giants,Colts,Etc the defense has show brute force every weak.They need to seek and destroy the quarterback.

    The offensive line is a work in progress, I feel Mike might make a couple changes soon.

    I think Shaun Hill is a gritty player but he is never going to get us to the big game.

    We need a quarterback before the deadline.I think Phillip Rivers Is the only possible chance of acquiring proven quarterback .We need to trade the farm for proven quarterback

    What are they going to do with Crabtree?Spread the defense?Everybody knows Hills arm is not going to win games.

    I hope this punch in face serves as a wake up call.There is alot of work to done if this team wants to be WINNERS.

    Lets tighten it up and show up for every game.

    GO NINERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, we all knew this was going to be a tough one. We killed ourselves as much as ATL killed us, and to me that hurts more. From the get go, even before the 1st quarter ended, I could already sense the team turning into a cluster&*@%.

    Good for Bly to apologize for his embarrassing behavior, but saying you’re out there to have fun is not the way, especially when you’re getting blown out and the other guys beside you on D are seriously trying to win. I hope you learn from this. Redeem yourself and take one all the way in full stride next time and don’t look back!

    As for the offense, well, we got major O-line issues. And I’m normally ok with Hill because he tries to protect the ball and manage the game, but that’ll only take us so far. We are getting predictable and opposing defenses are going to eat Hill alive ’cause he’s not a threat. Crabtree will be worthless without a QB to throw to him. Perhaps Alex Smith has something to prove since he got backup duty? I don’t know. I’m probably just having PTSD from our lopsided loss.

    Niners, let’s recover from this! Address the issues that need to be addressed and let’s come back fired up. You got a reality check this week. You’ve been kicked down and stomped on. Now, get up, dust your shirt off and start taking names!

    I want a local blackout so I can get another better NFL game in the Bay Area! I’m tired of these losses! We need to hold the team accountable, local blackout!

    Out-Of-State Niner fan. We usually have the north east teams shoved down our throats so I couldn’t wait to watch this one. What a disappointment. The one chance I get to watch my team and this is how they play? It left me wondering how they ever beat 3 teams. Go Niners. You have the talent. Just do it,

    the defense stunk!!!! Period, anytime a receiver just slices and dices you up and no pressure on the QB, you stink. Shaun Hill throw the ball 4 times to an imaginary receiver. What was he thinking. Josh Morgan got ran down when he had the defense beat for many yards. it seems as if we are slow, but I have faith in my team, just we stunk badly against the Falcons, which are not a bad team.
