NinerCam 49ers vs. Lions Postgame

Posted by Scott Kegley on December 27, 2009 – 7:37 PM

Starting this week, we’re going to try something new.  Instead of having to wait to see our edited video package on TV49, we’ll upload some Flip videos as soon as possible.

After the team huddle break down in the locker room, I caught up with Ricky Schmitt and Dre’ Bly.

It was certainly a day that Schmitt will remember for years to come.  Picked up earlier in the week after Joe Nedney sustained a hamstring injury, Schmitt didn’t have much time to prepare mentally and physically for his first NFL regular season game.  Schmitt finished the day with two field goals of 33 and 39 yards to go along with two extra points.

“It was exciting,” Schmitt said.  “I was more excited that nervous, so going out there it was great knocking that first on through.”

Special teams coordinator Al Everest was pleased with Schmitt’s effort, especially considering the limited amount of preparation time.

“When you have a veteran guy, preparation’s not so bad,” Everest said.  “They know what’s up and they know what to expect.  For Ricky being in a regular season game, he has a 280 blood pressure.  The bottom line is he played pretty well and we’ll go from there.”

You can view the full interview with Schmitt below or on Twitter.

    Hope Bruce Isaac is available for this Sunday’s game in St Louis. It would be nice to see him catch a few and pass the torch to our emerging recievers

    This team is on the way up, you can see it.The organization and the coaching staff deserve a lot of credit. They did not give up on alex smith and he is starting to become a pretty decent nfl qb. Next year i think they will be in the playoffs.

    I would like to see Isaac Bruce play and make some big catches against his old team the Rams. It may be his last game in the Pros and he use to tear us up a few years ago. Time to repay the Rams. Go Niners. Looking forward to a productive Draft Day. O-Lineman, Safety, and Defensive tackle to rush the QB.

    Overall I thought the 49er’s defense was outstanding as usual….bend and never break and hold them to field goals at best! AND we’re missing our 2 of our best defensive corners, you can get a “sense of next year” when everyone is “healthy again”. ONCE again, the Ofense seems at times to “sputter at best” and does not look like a team ready to take the next step. This late in the season on “turn overs” especially, should be able to convert and it seems like a “continue theme” with the offense. I do not like to place all of the blame on Alex Smith, yet after watching the “Big Catch” game re-run, Montana had 3 turnovers by himself and the offense had 6 total…yet found a way to “Drive the ball into the end zone…they all had that “Mike Singletary” look in their eyes and you “just don’t see it” in this offense and especially with Alex Smith. I hope next year after a camp and pre-season Alex’s brings that into his game as well as letting Nate have a try as well…go niners

    I was really happy for Ricky Schmitt. I thought he did a great job kicking the ball. I think he has a bright future in the NFL.

    I do not want the big “D” to always carry the 49ers, like the San Francisco Giant’s pitching is always carrying the weak hitting, with the major league baseball team having no real power. Our defense should not babysit the offense. We should be throwing for 3 touchdowns every game, with at least 1 rushing touchdowns for an average while our monstor defense makes the game all the more exciting to us!

    getting first downs, keeping the ball in the 4th quarter, finishing the game — these are all concersn. if we had gone three and out three times in the 4th quarter with a quality opponent, we could easily have lost, even thiough we led 20-6 at the time. O-line, edge rusher, one more CB and one more RB to start with on draft day.

    just think if Peyton Manning was taken out in the 3rd quarter when we played them we would havde won too!
