Week 7 Blog: 49ers @ Texans

Posted by Scott Kegley on October 25, 2009 – 8:24 AM


I just found my seat in the press box at Reliant Stadium.  I looked up at the press box from the field and it looked incredibly far away because it’s so high.  The set up is very nice, but I’m glad I don’t have a fear of heights.  The picture above was taken from my seat actually.

As always, I’ll post the inactives when the PR staff gives them to me around 90 minutes before the start of the game.  You can view the injury report for both teams and once the game starts, make sure to view our gameday section for live play-by-play information and stats.

Inactives for San Francisco: QB Nate Davis, WR Micheal Spurlock, S Reggie Smith. S Michael Lewis, C Cody Wallace, WR Brandon Jones, WR Jason Hill, DE Ricky Jean Francois

Houston: QB Dan Orlovsky (3rd), WR Glann Martinez, S Nick Ferguson, CB Fred Bennett, LB Jamie Winborn, G Tutan Reyes, TE Anthony Hill, DT Frank Okam



Andre Davis took a short opening kick out to the 31 where the Texans will start their drive.  Parys Haralson flushed Matt Schaub from the pocket on first down and was stopped by Patrick Willis for a short game.  Schaub scrambled again on 3rd and 5 but was one yard short of the sticks.  Houston punted and the 49ers will begin from the 20.

Michael Crabtree was in the game for the 49ers on their first play.  Shaun Hill was sacked by Mario Williams on first down for a loss of 6.  On 3rd and 14, Hill threw a screen to Vernon Davis who couldn’t hang on to the ball and the 49ers quickly go three and out.  A holding call will back the 49ers up half the distance to the goal.  They’ll punt from the 8.  Great coverage by Delanie Walker who timed his hit on Davis up perfectly and the Texans’ second drive will begin from their own 43.

Steve Slaton moved the chain on 3rd and 1 for the Texans as they move into SF territory.  Slaton reversed his field several times, but was stopped for a 5 yard loss on 1st down.  Justin Smith tipped Schaub’s pass on 2nd down and on 3rd, Schaub was under a ton of pressure by Haralson and threw the ball away.

Hill hit Gore for a gain of 6 on first down and then Gore ran for a gain of just 1 on 2nd.  On 3rd and 3, Hill’s pass was nearly intercepted along the sideline by Glover Quin.  The pass was intended for Davis.  Good coverage once again by the 49ers punt team as Michael Robinson brought down Jacoby Jones at the 39.

Schaub hit Owen Daniels for a gain of 31 as he ran a skinny post down the middle.  Schaub then hit Kevin Walter for a gain of 9 over the middle.  Slaton was stopped for a loss as Spikes and Evans closed on him on 2nd down.  On 3rd and 5, Schaub hit Daniels on a crossing route and was brought down by Hudson after a gain of 12.  On 3rd and 9, Schaub hit Slaton on a quick swing pass and Slaton got down to the 1 for the first down.  Slaton then ran wide right and cut through the defense for the first score of the game.  It was an 8 play, 61 yard drive.

Texans 7 – 49ers 0

Robinson returned the kickoff out to the 25.  Gore gained just 1 yard on a 1st down run.  Jeff Zgonin went past Rachal on 2nd down and brought down Hill.  Hill found Crabtree on 3rd and 15, but was stopped for just a 3-yard gain.  The 49ers have yet to pick up a first down.  A false start on the punt will back them up 5 more yard.  Jacoby Jones ran the punt back for a would-be touchdown, but the Texans were flagged for holding and a block in the back.  The block in the back call was enforced and will back the Texans up 15 yards.  That also brings an end to the first quarter.


The Texans will back up to the SF17 after a false start penalty.  Schaub hit Daniels wide left, who was puched out by Goldson after a gain of 6.  Spencer continues his strong play, knocking down a pass deep down the left side intended for Slaton.  Bly was called for illegal contact on 3rd down and that will bail Houston.  I looked up at the replay on the TV and I can’t say that it was a blatant penalty.  Schaub tried to hit Joel Dreesen on 2nd down but overshot him.  On 3rd and 12, the 49ers rushed just three and Schaub had plenty of time to hit Andre Johnson for the first down.  Harlson got in the backfield and stopped Slaton for no gain.  Schaub tried to hit Davis deep over the middle, but it was knocked away by Clements.  The 49ers stopped the Texans on 3rd down and will force the punt.  They won’t get the ball back however as Battle fumbled the punt and the Texans recovered the ball at the 10.  On 2nd down, Willis was held and brought down by one of the Texans lineman.  No call on the play and it was an easy touchdown for Slaton.  Correction, Willis wasn’t held, he was tackled.

Texans 14 – 49ers 0

Hill hit Davis on a short out route for a pickup of 6.  Gore lost a couple yards on second down as he searched for a hold to the left.  A false start will make the conversion even more difficult as Rachal was called for a false start.  On 3rd and 11, Hill hit Crabtree for the first down and a gain of 18.  So Crabtree gets the 49ers first 1st down of the game.  Gore dragged a defender as he bounced the ball out left for a gain of 5.  Hill hit Walker who was brought down quickly by Pollard.  Wow, another call goes against the 49ers.  I though for sure the Texans would be called for PI against Isaac Bruce, but the call instead went against the 49ers receiver.  After Lee’s punt, the Texans will get the ball at the 22.

Schaub hit Walter over the middle to pick up a quick first down.  THe 49ers defense was called for a delay of game and I can’t say I’ve seen that penalty called that often.  Slaton bounced the ball out left, running very hard through some tacklers and was brought down by Willis.  On 2nd and 1, Chris Brown hit a big hole in the middle and got into SF territory down to the 42.  On the next play, the 49ers bit big on a play fake and Owen Daniels was wide open behind just about everybody.  It couldn’t have been easier and the 49ers go down by three scores.

Texans 21 – 49ers 0

On 1st down, Hill faked to Gore and then found him over the middle for a gain of 9.  Glen Coffee moved the chains, going up the middle for a short gain.  Coffee was met hard at the line of scrimmage by a wall of defenders for a gain of 1 on 1st down.  The 49ers will get a first down thanks to a PI call this time against the man defending Bruce.  on 1st down, Hill handed the ball to Morgan on the end around.  Morgan raced left and was tripped up after a gain of 6.  Hill’s 2nd down pass was incomplete intended for Crabtree.  Hill scrambled for a gain of 2 and that will bring up 4th and 2.  On 4th down, Hill was pressured and tried to get the ball away as he was dragged down.  the ball was nearly intercepted and the 49ers will turn it over on downs.

Manny Lawson got to Schaub on 2nd down for a 9-yard loss.  Justin Smith tackled Slaton on 3rd down and forced a fumble which was recovered by Clements.  Every review I saw was not conclusive, but that was good enough to convince the officials that Slaton was down.  Another call goes against the 49ers and Nedney will not get the chance to get the 49ers on the board before halftime.

*** Injury update: T Tony Pashos has a left shoulder contusion and his return is questionable.


Two lineup changes to start the 2nd half as Alex smith is in at QB and Barry Sims is in at RT.  Smith hit Crabtree over the middle for a first down conversion on 2nd down.  Houston was called for encroachment and Gore was stopped for no gain to bring up 2nd and 5.   Gore bounced out left behind a block by David Baas and picked up 9 for the first down.  Alex Smith hit Vernon Davis for a 29-yard touchdown.  Houston was called for offsides and the penalty was declined.  Great opening drive by Smith in the second half.

Texans 21 – 49ers 7


*** Injury update as Tony Pashos has been ruled out for the game. Also, Vernon Davis had the wind knocked out on the touchdown pass.

Steve Slaton had one of his best ruuns of the day, hitting a big hole to the right for a gain of 12. On 1st down, Manny Lawson tracked down a shifty Slaton who caught a pass underneath from Schaub.  On 3rd down, Schaub hit Anderson who was stopped by Hudson short of the first down marker. Battle called for the fair catch and the 49ers will start their drive from the 12.

On first down, Gore picked up three up the middle.  On 3rd and 6, the 49ers were slow to break the huddle and the play clock hit 0.  They’ll back up 5 yards and have a 3rd and 11.  Smith hit Davis over the middle, but only for a gain of 4.  The 49ers were called for holding which will be added to the end of the run.  The Texans will begin their drive from the SF47.

McKillop tracked down Schaub who was scrambling on first down, bringing him down after a gain of 2.  Schaub ran for the first down on 3rd and short.  Slaton coughed up the ball on the next play.  The fumble was forced and recovered by Goldson.  49ers ball at their own 34.

Smith shrugged off a would-be sack on first down and raced out just past the 1st down marker to move the chains.  A nice run by Gore as he slithered up the middle for a gain of 7.  Gore took the snap in the wildcat formation, going up the middle for a gain of 4 and a first down.  Smith hit Crabtree for a nice gain, but SF was flagged for illegal motion.  Smith hit Davis on a crossing route left for a gain of 8.  Smith hit Brice wide right, but for a minimal gain of 1 after he was wrapped up quickly.  That’s the end of the third quarter.


On 3rd and 6, Smith hit Crabtree right by  the sticks on a comeback and picked up the first down.  On 3rd and 7, Smith hit Morgan crossing over the middle.  morgan was wide open and picked up 17 down to the HOU14.  Smith hit Davis on a double move, slant inside for the score.

Texans 21 – 49ers 14

Houston will begin their drive from the 15.  Big play by Andre Johnson who streaked down the middle of the field and somehow came up with the ball between 2 defenders.  On 3rd and 6, Schaub hit Daniels for the 1st down.  Schaub then found Daniels again down to the SF 11.  Justin smith stopped Brown for no gain on 1st down.  On 2nd and 10, Ahmad Brooks came off the left edge and dropped Schaub for a loss of 9.  On 3rd and 19, Slaton picked up a couple, but Houston was called for a personal foul after the play, making it a 50-yard field goal attempt.  Brown hits the field goal anyways and Houston goes up by two scores.

Texans 24 -49ers 14

Robinson fielded the kick out to the 27.  Smith was under pressure on first down but was able to avoid the sack and throw the ball away.  Smith hit Morgan on the right sideline who got past the sticks after a gain of 12.  The 49ers were called for a delay of game and will have 1st and 15 from the 34.  Smith hit Davis who found a hole in the zone over the middle for a gain of 9.  On 3rd and 6, Smith hit Crabtree just past the sticks.  I have to run down for postgame now, but stay tuned to Twitter for updates.

    Willis held or tackled, it doesn’t matter. Our special teams has sucked all year and it needs to get better. Our offense is not strong enough to be able to make up for the ST’s mistakes. I will be shocked if we can get back in this game.

    dam… niners look like the old niners again! I really thought it was going to be different this year. The niners are scoreless, can’t convert on third downs, can’t tackle, can’t pass and are slow.

    Singletary has let us down,i know he don’t want to hear it,however, if we dont comment who wil? I thought his stratigy was hit em in the mouth!! He couldnt get his offensive line to beat thier way out of a paper bag!!!!! His special teams should have taken advantage of the sun,instead of texas doing it to us! This offensive line dosen’t give hill any time to complete a pass!! If this is the way things are going to go they may as well put Davis in as he has a faster release and seems to be able to avoid the pass rush!!!!! Hill dosn’t possess the leadership role that this team needs!!!! What kind of football is it to play catchup???Lets use our heads here!!!!!!

    the last 1.5 games has shown that this “team” either does not WANT to win or does not KNOW how to win. furthermore, the anchor of this team, the defense, has shown zero resilience against top tier offenses. 1 sack and a turnover in the last minute is all the defense could muster this half. without an offense capable of coming from behind I don’t have too much confidence (other than blind optimism) for the 49ers making the playoffs.

    Something needs to be done at quarterback. Shaun just does not get the ball out in time. We need a O line and pass rusher.
    Shaun just doesn’t do it for me. I like his gamer attitude though,but that won’t move the ball.

    When i watched the Rams Game and the defence kicked there but i thought oh good we will have a good defence this year. BOY WAS I WRONG. The lack of defense LOST this game you allowed the TEAXANS to beat you that is PATHETIC, If you cant tackle people TAKE YOUR SELF OFF the team and allow someone who can to play. Good Job Offense Untill that last throw ALex that is why you dont start or play much YOU DONT MIX up your passes they KNEW you were going to him THATS ALL YOU DID.

    I watch every team press release, read the news about it and I was happy to know the job Singletary is doing to 49ers, but somehing is not working out, someone is not working the tail of… tha’ts a fact. Other thing is that I agree to you guys saying about Hill leadership and concistancy passing… Smith did a great job and almost turn the score to our side… I was happy =/ but against Houston we suffer like that… ouch, let’s pray 49ers get better somehow…

    Oh my god, what is wrong with you people, this is why I hate fair weather fans, three weeks ago people were talking about cinderella playoffs and now nothing but crying, where are the real fans that believe in their team. Its still early in the season, our entire schedule is winable, and we finally have our full arsenal with crabtree and smith.

  32. By Dominic on Oct 25, 2009 | Reply

    When do we see the 49ers being “special” coach? This has probably been discussed, but wouldn’t starting Crabtree (after weeks of absence) effect player moral? It feels as if the team is not a complete unit as we saw in the first three games, which so happens to be before the Crabtree saga became more prevalent. Keep on ‘em coach and keep wearing the cross, GOD BLESS!

    The spread offense looked really good in the second half with Alex at the helm. Defense…….dont know…the defensive line seems content with being blocked and giving up. Instead of getting off there blocks and getting to the quarterback. We need a few true pass rushers!!

    I think it is very important to thank Shaun Hill for his contribution.

    He worked hard and kept the game changing interceptions and fumbles down…dont ever forget how he protected the ball for us.

    Im not even upset with him. Our running game was weak and we know that.

    SO lets just step it up, noone has the right to point fingers.

    I’m starting to get tired of the run first offense. If Frank Gore is going to have success the niners have to open it up so other teams can’t stack the box against him.

    I’ve been a niner fan since the 50’s, so I’ve seen it all. But I’ve got to say that I’m pumped after the second half I just saw. Why? Because Singletary gives his people a chance to either make it or break it, and if they don’t make it by his deadline, he makes the necessary changes NOW. He changed not only the QB at the half, but the entire offensive strategy as well. He can think in the heat of battle. Very impressive. The Niners have me for life.

    i dont appreciate shawn hill..he plays too conservative along with our offensive play calling..Good Job Alex! He would have had a heck of a game with 3 td passes and his completion ratio but he tried to win the game that last drive.. im proud of him.. that interception he had was the last chance they had to win that game which was impossible with out him.. think what that game would have been like if he would have started the game.. Get shaun hill out of here..

    I still keep trying to figure out why alex smith hasnt been the qb from the start.. with the first season yeah he got hurt.. second season he struggled but he’s still more capable then anything we have.. He was awesome.. i hate the conservative play calling especially when its against good teams.. remember how crappy troy aikman played and they kept trying to use they’re conservative qb.. that was when troy was #1 pick too.. let alex bring us back..otherwise he’s gonna leave the first chance he gets.. he’s the best we;ve had since steve young..

    V Davis is tha–man….but he needs someone with an arm to make the plays he does. there are other weapons in the offense, but they need to show. Crabtree, what an appearance, almost reminded me of rice, but like i said almost. If crabtree would of gone to camp and started out to begin with, the story would been different in chemistry among the team.

    I don’t know what happened with hill; to me it seemed he was just getting beat and couldnt make any sort of play. He was not all there. But still, I count on him since he did deliver three wining games.

    Alex is back! I hope he remains healthy and continues to develop chemistry with all the wide-outs.

    I am proud to see the niners fight back and gain some glory out this defeat.

    Go….. 49ers

    Well here we go again! I love it we were down 21-0 and still run the ball up the middle and get MAYBE 1 yard. Good play calling!! The first half we could have been getting beat by a high school football team with the play calling. Second half we got Hill out of there and started doing what all the other teams in the league do. PASS!!!! WOW amazing, we moved the ball. I have one question for Singletary. How do you have 2 weeks to prepare for a team and play as bad as we did? I would love an answer to that. Oh wait I know, you gave the players a week off. Good idea after what happened with Atlanta! I would have had them in there every day. You want a day off, earn it. Wait til the colts, bears, packers, and even the cardnials get us. If things dont change it will be another long heatbreaking season for 49er fans. Better do something different now or the only thing we will look foreward to is the draft next year.

    Well well well, another strange day in Niner Land!!! I want to go OFF!!! but I can’t. after 6 games in the season we have learned some new things. Number 1 Hill isn’t the saviour we all thought he was yeah he got us through some games, but was very lucky most of the time, and once again Hill has proven he is not the man for the QB job….so he is replaced at the half by who… MR SMITH!!! Yeah I know what your thinking we just went to bad too worse!!!….it’s gonna even get more ugly. Then next thing you know it Alex is gun slinging in the spread offense which he grew up playing in college. To me it was great to see the Niners offense go to something totally different offensively for Alex Smith instead of handing off the ball up the middle every other play. I’m glad Singletary benched Hill he is a great guy and all but just wasn’t cutting it.

    Number 2 I was very impressed with Crabtree, this young man stepped up in a big way for his very first NFL game. He played as if he was already in the NFL a couple of years this kid is something special he has great hands!

    Well this was a game Niners needed to win but came up short we can only hope that Alex and the Niners will be ready for the Colts next week, remember any team can be beaten on any given Sunday…Arizona is putting a whipping on the Giants as I type. Alex needs to be ready because if he can’t do it I hope we will see Nate Davis next it all comes down to the QB far as I’m concerned they have to execute and perform.


    P.S. Let’s hope the Giants can help us out!

    Alex Smith needs another chance to really prove himself with a stronger offensive line and greater protection. To me, it seems the offensive coordinators are looking pass the best QB they have had since Young, Alex Smith has talent, but we have not seen it, because he was always getting sacked or rushed. It is different year with a different coach. As long as Alex has protection, he will deliver. I hate to say let Alex back in instead of Hill, but it is about winning and we need to win to stay on top of Cardinals.

    Come on niners go beat the Colts, let them be your statement you belong in the same the field as them.

    Everyone just calm down…everything is gonna be ok now. Everyone is just looking at the negatives of the game. Yes the 49ers had a horrible 1st half giving up 21 points, but bounced back and held them to 3 points in the 2nd half. The positives? ALEX SMITH ALEX SMITH ALEX SMITH….we finally get a breath of fresh air and spark of the maybe rejuvenated career of Alex Smith. Now look at the offense now. We finally have a quarterback that has the arm to get the ball to dangerous playmakers in Vernon Davis, Josh Morgan, and Michael Crabtree. If the 49ers are smart they would have a 3 wr option with Isaac Bruce as well and use as many weapons as they can to help Alex Smith in finding the endzone. Another positive..MiCHAEL CRABTREE…did he or did he not look great!!! So how do u go without playing this whole year to playing practically every play and getting 5 rec for 56 yds. The 49ers look good going into next week but as Singletary said they need to communicate better. Although I doubt that this upcoming week they will get a win vs the undefeated Colts, it looks good for the 49ers in upcoming matchups.
