Week 16 Live Game Blog: 49ers vs. Lions

Posted by Scott Kegley on December 27, 2009 – 10:59 AM

It’s fan appreciation day here at Candlestick as the 49ers conclude their home schedule against the Detroit Lions.  Earlier in the week, the forecast called for rain, but it’s a beautiful day at the ball park.  I’ll be heading out to the parking lots in a few minutes to film the judging and announcement of the 2009 Tailgater of the Year.  If you want to see what the competition’s all about, take a look at the video from last year.

The 49ers are relatively healthy.  The only two players who have been ruled out for the game are Joe Nedney and Nate Clements.  Check out the injury report to see everyone’s status.  Without the services of Nedney, the 49ers signed Ricky Schmitt who will handle the kicking duties today.  Schmitt showed some promise during his time with the 49ers during the 2008 preseason.  Schmitt was with the Raiders during training camp this season and has had a year full of workouts for various teams.

49ers inactives: K Joe Nedney, QB Nate Davis (3rd qb), CB Keith Smith, CB Nate Clements, RB Glen Coffee, T Chris Patrick, G Tony Wragge, and WR Isaac Bruce

Lions inactives: QB Patrick Ramsey (3rd qb), WR Eric Fowler, CB Phillip Buchanon, LB Larry Foote, DT Joe Cohen, C Dan Gerberry, G Roy Schuening, and OL Corey Hillard

I was down on the field and shot this video of the pregame huddle.  You can watch it and comment on Twitter or view the YouTube video below.

FIRST QUARTER:

The 49ers will kickoff to open the game.  A great tackle my Marcus Hudson on the kickoff pinned the Lions Deep. 1st and 10, Calvin Johnson took the end around for a 19-yard gain.  1st and 10, Marice Morris got the carry to the left side for 9 yards.  2nd and 1, Drew Stanton rolled right but was chased down and sacked by Takeo Spikes.  3rd and 4, Stanton hit Bryant Johnson on a comeback to the right side, just enough to move the chains.  1st and 10 from the DET 46, Morris took the handoff up the middle for a gain of 5.  2nd and 5, Manny Lawson got in the backfield to drop Morris for a loss of 2.  3rd and 7, Stanton found a hole in the middle and had enough running room to scramble for the first down and a gain of 11.  1st and 10 from the SF 40, Morris got the carry behind the left guard and was tackled my Michael Lewis after a 3-yard gain.  2nd and 7, Stanton stepped up and fired just behind Johnson who made a good adjustment for a 16-yard gain.  1st and 10 from the 21, Morris couldn’t find any running room to the left side as the hole closed quickly for a 1-yard loss.  2nd and 11, Stanton hit Johnson on a quick screen for a gain of 13.  1st and goal from the 9, Aaron Brown got the carry up the middle, but only for a gain of 1.  2nd and goal from the 8, Stanton looked for Johnson in the corner of the end zone against Shawntae Spencer who turned and got a hand on it to knock it away.  3rd and goal, Stanton looked for Johnson between the coverage of Bly and Goldson who knocked it down incomplete.  Jason Hanson hit the 27-yard field goal to give the Lions the early lead.

Lions 3 – 49ers 0

Josh Morgan broke a few tackles on the kick return, but only got back to the 12.  1st and 10 from the 12, Jason Hunter beat Adam Snyder on the right side quickly to bring Alex Smith down for the sack.  2nd and 14, Gore got the delayed handoff, but couldn’t get going and picked up just 1 yard.  3rd and 13,  Gore was brought down behind the line of scrimmage for a loss of 5.  After Lee’s punt, the Lions will get the ball at their own 48.

1st and 10 from the 48, Morris bounced around the left sideline and was pushed out after a gain of 3.  2nd and 7, Derrick Williams to the end around out left for a gain of 4 after he was drilled by Willis.  3rd and 3, Smith drilled Stanton as he threw and Lawson made a good play to arrive right as his pass got to Heller.  The 49ers will start their second drive at their own 22.

1st and 10 from the 22, Gore still found room to run against 8 men in the box as he rumbled ahead for a 14-yard gain.  1st and 10 from the 36, Smith faked the handoff and had Crabtree wide open down the field for a gain of 50.  1st and 10 from the 14, Gore couldn’t find any running room straight ahead and was stopped for a short loss.  2nd and 11, Smith looked for Walker on the seam route, but the pass was a bit too high.  3rd and 11, Smith was hurried by the blitz and had to throw it away.  Newly signed Ricky Schmitt hit his first regular season field goal.  The 33-yarder ties things up.

49ers 3 – Lions 3

Witherspoon returned the kick to the 30, where he was brought down by Reggie Smith.  1st and 10 from the 31, Stanton hit Johnson on a slant for a gain of 9.  2nd and 1, Morris had good running room up the middle for a gain of 6.  And that’s the last play of the first quarter.

SECOND QUARTER:

1st and 10 for the Lions from their own 46, Takeo Spikes knifed pass a blocker and hauled down Morris on the toss play.  2nd and 14, Stanton hit Morris on the screen pass for a 14-yard gain.  1st and 10 from the SF 44, Brooks got around the right tackle and knocked the ball out of Stanton’s hands.  It was recovered by Takeo Spikes and the 49ers will get the ball.

1st and 10 from the SF 47, Gore got a nice block from his fullback and picked up 6 yards on the straight ahead run.  2nd and 4, Smith rolled to his right and threw back left for Davis who made the low catch down to the DET 34.  1st and 10, Smith tried to find Morgan, but the pass was tipped at the line.  2nd and 10, Smith hit Walker on a quick out to the left side.  The Lions had good coverage and read it nicely to stop him after a 3-yard gain.  3rd and 7, Smith hit Gore who had some space on the left side to get down very close to the 1st down marker.  4th and 1, Gore got the carry and looks to be just short.

1st and 10 for the Lions from the 24, Morris was stopped for a short gain by Takeo Spikes who wrapped up his ankles.  2nd and 8, the defensive line closed quickly on Morris who couldn’t find much room to run up the middle.  3rd and 6, the blitz by Willis came late as Stanton got the ball to Calvin Johnson.  Brooks closed on the receiver and knocked it loose as it was recovered by Roman.

1st and 10 from the 48, Smith’s pass was tipped at the line.  2nd and 1o, Smith threw back to his left for Walker after rolling right.  The blocks were set up well and Walker made some nice moves after the catch for a 12-yard gain.  1st and 10 from the DET 40, Gore got the carry up the middle for a gain of 2.  2nd and 8, Eric Heitmann was called for a hold and the offense will move back 10 yards.  2nd and 18, Smith hit Gore out of the backfield for a gain of 7.  3rd and 11, Smith hit Morgan down the right sideline, but the safety came and knock him out of bounds before he could get his feet down.  Lee’s punt took a nice bounce and was downed by Battle at the 4.

1st and 10 from the 4, Justin Smith stood up Morris at the line and he just picked up 1.  2nd and 9, Morris found a hold to the right side and was tackled by Lawson after a gain of 6.  3rd and 3, Roman came of the blitz off the right side to sack Stanton for a loff of 2. Harris’ punt was short and Battle let it bounce.  It rolled down to the SF 46.

1st and 10 from their own 46, Smith hit Norris in the left flat for a gain of 2.  2nd and 8, Smith hit Morgan on the quick screen to the right side for a gain of 7.  3rd and 1, Smith showed nice touch, floating it over the linebacker Levy to Walker for a gain of 22.  1st and 10 from the 23, Smith threw too high for Crabtree on the comeback down the right sideline.  2nd and 10, Smith hit Morgan on that same WR screen, but only for a gain of 1.  3rd and 9, Smith hit Crabtree on the short cross who was upended by Louis Delmas after a gain of 1.  Schmitt connected on the 39-yard field goal.  His second field goal of the day and the second of his career is a new career long…

49ers 6 – Lions 3

Witherspoon took the kick back out to the 23.  1st and 10 from the 23, Morris took the draw for a gain of 1 yard.  That brings up the two-minute warning.  2nd and 9, Stanton hit BJ (Bryant Johnson) for a gain of 13.  1st and 10, Stanton’s pass was behind Morris who couldn’t hang on.  2nd and 10, Stanton threw the ball right to Willis who picked it off.  I really don’t know who that pass was meant for as Bryant Johnson was well behind Willis.  1st and 10 from the DET 40, Smith threw the ball away towards Josh Morgan.  2nd and 10, Smith tried to hit Gore over the middle but the defensive lineman made a good play to knock it down.  3rd and 10, Smith hit Crabtree for a 11-yard gain.  Delmas was called for illegal contact, but that’s waived off.  1st and 10 from the 29, Smith hit Robinson over the middle for a gain of 4.  2nd and 6, Smith hit Davis on a quick out for a gain of 2 and the 49ers use their second timeout with 35 seconds left in the half.  3rd and 4, Smith hit Morgan on an out route and he got out of bounds after a gain of 7.  1st and 10 from the 16, Smith looked for Hill, but the linebacker dropped and tipped it away.  2nd and 10, Smith hit Morgan in the right flat for a gain of 6 and he got out of bounds to stop the clock with 20 seconds left.  3rd and 4, Smith’s pass was batted at the line of scrimmage.  The Lions called timeout to ice the kicker.  Landon Cohen drove into the backfield and blocked the kick.

1st and 10, the Lions take a knee to end the half.

THIRD QUARTER:

The 49ers struggled to start the half, going three and out.  Lee’s punt was nearly blocked, but bounced short of the returner and rolled down to the 18.

1st and 10 from the 18, Morris was tripped up as he tried to run behind the left tackle – gain of 1.  2nd and 9, Stanton hit Morris on a swing route and Spencer tripped him up after a gain of 4.  3rd and 5, Stanton hit Northcutt over the middle for a big gain.  Heller was called for offensive PI though and that negates the play.  3rd and 15 from the 13, Stanton scrambled but was brought down from behind by Parys Haralson.  The gain of 3 will force the Lions to punt.  The punt bounced and rolled down at the DET 49.

*** Joe Staley has a knee contusion and his return is doubtful.

1st and 10 from the DET 49, Smith hit Gore on a well setup screen.  Gore was patient and waited for Baas to get down field and followed the block for a gain of 19.  *** Cliff Avril was shaken up on the play *** 1st and 10 from the 30, despite 8 men in the box, Gore slipped up the middle for a gain of 7.  2nd and 3, Gore had a nice cutback after starting to the right side for a gain of 15.  1st and goal from the 8, Gore ran up the gut for a gain of 5.  2nd and goal from the 2, Gore was stopped at the line for no gain.  3rd and goal from the 2, Smith rolled out and could have ran it in, but tossed it to Davis for the score.  Jim Schwartz is challenging the ruling that Smith was beyond the line of scrimmage before the throw.  The ruling on the field is upheld and the 49ers go up by two scores.

49ers 13 – Lions 3

1st and 10 from the 20 after the touchback, Morris bangs ahead for a gain of 3.  2nd and 7, Stanton was flushed from the pocket and scrambled up the middle for a gain of 6.  3rd and 1, Stanton pitched to Morris but Lawson got into the backfield and brought him down for a loss of 4.  Battle called for the fair catch at the 36.

1st and 10 from the 36, Gore got the carry to the right side and picked up 3.  2nd and 7, Gore got the carry up the middle for a gain of 5.  3rd and 2, Gore ran straight ahead and will be less than a half yard short of the sticks.  4th and inches, Smith play faked and then hit Gore who was wide open.  The LB Levy didn’t even know who had the ball as Gore got down to the 6.  1st and goal from the 6, Gore plunged ahead for no gain.  2nd and goal, Gore ran straight ahead and was marked just short of the end zone.  *** Chilo Rachal was shaken up on the play *** 3rd and goal from the 1, Gore plunged up the middle and barely got in for the score.

49ers 20 – Lions 3

Witherspoon returned the kick out to the 27.  1st and 10 from the 27, Morris ran up the middle for a gain of 3.  2nd and 7, Stanton hit C. Johnson who spun, but couldn’t outrun Willis out to the SF 40.  1st and 10 from the 40,  Felton gained 1 yard on the inside carry and that’s the last play of the third quarter.

FOURTH QUARTER:

2nd and 9 from the SF 39, Stanton hit Heller in the right flat, but Lawson closed and threw him down violently for a gain of 1.  3rd and 8, Stanton threw for B. Johnson in the end zone, but Tarell Brown was right there wil perfect coverage.  4th and 8, Goldson was called for a questionable pass interference penalty on C. Johnson.  1st and 10 from the 29, Goldson got some revenge for the penalty, picking off Stanton and returning it to the 42.

1st and 10 from the SF 42, Smith handed to Morgan on the end around for a 16-yard gain.  1st and 10, Gore was stopped for a short loss up the middle.  2nd and 11, Gore ran right for a gain of 2.  3rd and 9, Delmas flew in to wrap Gore up before he could get outside on the toss play for a loss of 1.  Lee’s punt bounced and rolled to Battle who was waiting for it at the 2.

1st and 10 from the 2, Morris plunged up the middle for a gain of 3.  2nd and 7, Tarell Brown made a good play to leap over B. Johnson to tip away the pass.  Bly was called for a hold though so that gives the Lions 5 yards and a first down.  1st and 10 from the 12, Stanton hit Heller over the middle for a gain of 16.  1st and 10, Stanto looked for Heller again on an out route, but the ball was too wide and went off his fingers.  2nd and 10, Stanton was under pressure and barely got the pass off.  It was intended for Northcutt, but sailed wide.  3rd and 10, Stanton scrambled and was hit hard by Goldson after a gain of 6.  Battle fielded the punt and spun to get out to the 27.

1st and 10 from the 27, Gore lost the football as hit ran up the middle.  Lions ball.

1st and 10, it’s the second straight play with a turnover as Bly picked off Stanton’s pass and returned it to the SF 45.

1st and 10 from the SF 45, Gore plunged ahead and picked up 2.  2nd and 8, Gore got wide right, but didn’t find a hole as he gained just 1.  3rd and 8, Anthony Henry stepped in front of Michael Robinson and nearly picked off Smith’s pass.  Lee’s punt sailed into the end zone for a touchback.

Culpepper is in at QB for Detroit and hits C. Johnson for a 9-yard gain.  2nd and 1, Culpepper had some room and took off on the right side for a gain of 12.  1st and 10, Culpepper hit Morris over the middle for a gain of 7.  2nd and 3, Culpepper hit C. Johnson along the right sideline for a gain of 9.  1st and 10, Culpepper couldn’t find Morris on the screen pass.

We have to run down to the field now, but stay updated on Twitter.

    49ers fans/friends,

    Defensively the Niners are great!!!!…..but unfortunately the offense is struggling against a bad team, this is not acceptable almost halftime and the score is 6 – 3!!!…come on it should be 14-3, but as we all know the plays are not the proper ones to make points. Hope to see a more aggresive offense at the second half.

    Regards,

    Another excellent performance of the defense..INTERCEPTION by Patrick Willis….well done…now lets see if the offense can convert it in 7 points more!!!

    Amazing how the offense blew up the score!!!….the LIONS blocked the field goal!!!…..what a shame of offense!!!…man…i’m really sad about it…what’s going on!!!….Mike Singletary is not take part of the offensive calls!!…he is to respectively for JR…he should support him on the offensive calls….they are just giving more chances to Detroit. Lets see how they react to the second half.

    this didnt surprise me! well we deserve to lose this game! 6-3 at half?!? defense doing great!!! offense doing whatelse but pass, pass, pass, lose!!! ya gore is hurt but even before he was hurt they werent running him! and what was that start for the offense on 1st poss??? it was crap thats what it was!

    are we 2-12 or are the lions.This is another non game plan by our coaching staff.We’re being out coached by the lions , we need to learn to put teams like detroit away or we’ll never be a championship team.If we lose this game singletary and scott m need to pack their bags , we should be up 12-3 , we’ve started at the 40 yard line or better , if we gave detroit field position like we’ve had wed probably be down 21-3

    Not much of a “show” against a 2-12 team. Alex is still getting too many passes batted down.(Telegraphs his target). Had it not been for our defense getting those turnovers we would be down at half. Where is Nate? Alex gets any pressure and he rolls right and throws it away..cant make adjustments. Did I say this was against a 2-12 team? Better luck 2nd half. This was boaring….It doesnt look like “smash mouth” football to me..more like “trench mouth” (ugly).

    Not a lot of change offensively on the second half, they already gave it the ball to the LIONS….definetely a weak offense, but on PLAY CALLS, because on players the niners have a lot of talents.

    David — I don’t think our problem is in the coaching. Singletary watches Alex Smith at times in utter disbelief. We need a strong QB to lead this fresh talented offense. Alex was plain lucky on that bootleg chanllenge. He was clearly past the LoS. Whatever. I’ll take it. Go Niners! Win today,…Win next week

    well another failed conversion (5 out of 15) by the offense after an interception by Drew Bly…the Defense will get tired soon!!!…..as always due to the offense can not made 3rd down conversaions…..honestly I will give a chance to QB Nate.

  27. By Miguel on Dec 27, 2009 | Reply

    Now the LIONS with Culpperper is a little bit more aggressive and the Defense is getting more time to the QB to make passes…..plus the defensive penalties…so I don’t want to see a TD by the LIONS…

  28. By C-Dub on Dec 27, 2009 | Reply

    OFFENSE — Frank Gore, Vernon Davis, Michael Crabtree, Josh Morgan, Barry Simms? — I mean these guys lead by a Payton Manning or a Kurt Warner or a Phil Rivers? Man we’re in the playoffs and winning!
    The Niners have come a long way from two years ago. Coaching staff is solid. Defense is soild. Once again Niner fans have something the get pumped about! Looking forward to 2010.

    49ers defense is getting tired…obviously the offense can not make conversions to keep the ball….a lot of work to do for Singletary on the OL side

  30. By Miguel on Dec 27, 2009 | Reply

    lack of consistency and lost of momentum..now they are still struggling to make 3rd down conversion..once again to punt the ball to LIONS…..why they are running the ball without a full back or support to Frank Gore????

    How many more games must the fans watch Alex walk off the field after another three and out series with his head down, snapping his chin strap off, shaking his head? Why is Nate Davis not on the 53 when needed? PLEASE, Coach Sing, give him a chance in the last game. Please, PLEASE! How cn you go into the draft without knowing having any idea what Nate can do at the full speed of the game?

    Glad to see the Niners play better in the second half. The turnovers made a big difference.(not Alex). Gore is great and so is the defense. Don’t get too excited about this though …we just beat a team that is now 2-13. Play Nate next week..Alex didn’t play well enough against this kind of team to deserve another start. Im tire of his new offense. (Three and out)

    What’s all this talk that we should play Nate Davis so we can see what we got…let’s be real that’s what the 49er staff is doing now with Smith because if it’s not gonna be Alex it”s gonna be the 49ers going out and making a trade for another teams Q.B. or just drafting one but it’s not gonna be Nate Davis or Hill. Just be happy with a win a win that your starting Q.B. did’nt turn the ball over and even made some pretty good passes during the game. Look bottom line is new coaches + new coordinator + new system + new players = NEED TO DEVELOP!!!!

    Great game. I think that whoever is the #2 QB and #2 RB will be important next year as the niners make a serious challenge for a playoff spot. I feal that continuity with the OC will pay dividends next year as well. Thanks Goach Raye. This fan appriciates your hard work. Next year 10-6.

    I too..look forward to 2010 just like I have since the last time they were in the play-offs. I will always be a Niner fan..that is why I get upset with why it has taken so many years to DEVELOP. That “young team” excuse gets old after a while. I like Singletary and wish him good luck next year and a good draft. Beat St Louis. (Thats almost as good a feeling as “Beat L.A.)

    I dont know why everyone is down on smith I think he did a good job today no ints and for the year he has 17 tds and 12 ints and I know thats not great but he is getting better so smith is the guy in 2010 so next year all of you smith haters will be asking for forgivens GO 49ERS

    Next week opponent is the rams, why can’t they start nate davis and see what he got. we already to know the capabilities of alex smith. we should see nate and make a determination next year.

    Im tired of hearing about nate davis.He’s obviously not capable of playing the position if they put shawn hill in and then went to alex smith.. And they still havent put him in. So anyway shut it about nate davis.. we need to get a veteran qb in there..i hope they dont get anybody out of the draft.. cuz there aint crap.. they need to pick up warners backup..or michael vick…or heck i think they even need to try and get ahold of matt cassell that guys gonna be good…mark my words..

    actually i take back what i said about nate davis.. I was reading up with him and i can honestly say “i think they should have put him in throughout the season.. he threw for over 3,000 yards his last two seasons and only had 8 interceptions each season..pretty good.
