Live Game Blog: 49ers at Chiefs

Posted by Scott Kegley on September 26, 2010 – 8:14 AM

We just arrived at the press box at the new Arrowhead Stadium.  At first, Taylor Price, Rod Brooks and I were given directions to the old press box which was converted into suites.

Earlier in the week, the forecast called for rain today, but as of this morning, it looks like it should be a good day for football.

Stay tuned to the blog and follow us on Twitter for updates from today’s game.

We continued our weekly “Teddy Football” with Ted Robinson and you can listen to the Q&A by clicking here.


49ers – QB Troy Smith (3rd QB), WR Ted Ginn, CB Tramaine Brock, CB Will James, T Barry Sims, C Eric Heitmann, T Alex Boone, WR Jason Hill

Chiefs – CB Jackie Bates, FB Mike Cox, S Reshard Langford, LB Charlie Anderson, LB Justin Cole, DE Alex Magee, T Ryan O’Callaghan, DE Tyson Jackson


The 49ers kicked off to open the game.  The Chiefs started their drive from the 26.  Cassel dropped to pass on 1st down and found Dwayne Bowe along the right sideline on a comeback for 16 yards.  On 3rd and 5, Cassel tried to hit Chris Chambers on a slant but the pass was too high.  Kyle Williams called for the fair catch at the 14.

Frank Gore had a good hole on 1st down and was barely tripped up but picked up 5 yards.  On 3rd and 4, Alex found Vernon Davis crossing and hit him in stride for a gain of 10.  On 3rd and 8, Smith hit Zeigler on a slant as the Chiefs came with the blitz.  Zeigler came up just one yard shy of the first down and Andy Lee came in to punt.  Taylor Mays was the first one down on coverage and was able to slow down Arenas until Delanie Walker finished the tackle.

The Chiefs started their drive from the 17.  Cassel went with the play fake and hit Tony Moeaki on the right sideline for a gain of 15.  Jamaal Charles picked up the next first down, bouncing the run out to the right, down to the Chiefs’ 43-yard line.  Thomas Jones picked up 7 on 2nd down running up the middle.  Cassel was drilled by Haralson and Justin Smith on 3rd and 3 and the pass sailed high of Moeaki as a result.  Williams called for a fair catch at the 10.

The 49ers spread things out on 1st down and Smith hit Davis for a gain of 5.  On 3rd and 4, Smith hit Gore out of the backfield.  Gore had all kinds of space and picked up 31 down the right sideline.  On 3rd and 10, Smith scrambled up the middle for a 1st down, but the 49ers were called for holding.  They tried to hit Westbrook on the screen on 3rd and 20, but the pass was high.  Lee had great hang time on the punt.  Goldson flew down the field and hit Arenas for no gain on the return.

Cassel gave the delayed handoff to Charles for a gain of 11 to start the drive.  Charles nearly broke it on the next play, but was brought down by Goldson.  The Chiefs were called for holding on the play to negate the big gain.  On 3rd and 20, Charles got the carry and broke several tackles for 24 yards and a first down.  Cassel scrambled on 3rd down and was stopped one yard short and that’s how the 1st quarter came to a close.

Standout Stat: Gore has only 10 yards rushing on 5 carries through the first quarter.

Highlight Reel: Gore’s 31 yard reception from Smith down the right sideline really caught the Chiefs off guard.  Only one defender had position on Gore and was able to make the play.

Put it in Perspective: The game remains scoreless.  Both teams have moved the ball well to midfield were slowed down after that.  The holding penalty really hurt the 49ers as they got into Chiefs territory.  The 49ers will need to get more production out of the running game as the game goes forward.


Todd Haley had his punt team on the field and then ran his offense back out, drawing a timeout call from the 49ers.  After all the tricks by KC, McCluster took the direct snap and picked up the 1st down.  The Chiefs picked up another first down and on the next play, Cassel threw for Bowe.  Shawntae Spencer made a great break on the ball to step in front and deflect it.  Spencer stayed with the play and brought it in for the interception.  The 49ers got the ball at the Chiefs’ 24.

Smith’s pass on 3rd down went off  of Crabtree after being deflected and into the hands of Brandon Flowers.  Chiefs got the ball at the the 31.

The Chiefs made the 49ers pay for that mistake as Cassel hit McCluster who beat Travis LaBoy and dove in for the score.

Chiefs 7 – 49ers 0

The Chiefs went with the onside kick but were flagged for offsides.  Williams fielded the punt and returned it out to the 22.  On 3rd and 6, Smith hit Crabtree on a comeback to pick up 12.  On the next play, the Chiefs blitzed the corner and Smith checked it to Crabtree who was wide open and got down to the Chiefs’ 40.  On 3rd and short, the 49ers went with the flea flicker.  The Chiefs weren’t fooled and had good coverage.  Smith threw the ball away.  Joe Nedney came on and connected on the 51-yard field goal.

Chiefs 7 – 49ers 3

McCluster fielded the kickoff and the 49ers had good coverage to bring him down at the 20.  On 3rd and 5, Cassel hit McCluster.  Goldson didn’t have his head turned around as McCluster made the catch to move the sticks.  Tim Castille caught the screen on the next play.  It was well set up for a gain of 14.  Cassel hit McCluster on another screen on 2nd down.  There weren’t any 49ers near the play and the Chiefs picked up 23.  McCluster got the handoff on the end around.  Ahmad Brooks read it well and stopped him for a 5-yard loss.  That took it to the two-minute warning.  That extra time may have iced Succop who missed the 37-yard field goal.

The 49ers took over at the 27.  Anthony Davis was called for a false start on the first play.  Smith hit Westbrook on a screen for a gain of 5.  Both Westbrook and Gore were in the backfield on the play.  Smith checked it down to Gore who was stopped for no gain.  The Chiefs called a timeout with 1:17 left in the half.  They have one timeout remaining.  Arenas had some room on the return and made the most of it with a 19-yard return.

The Chiefs began their drive from the 42.  Cassel scrambled but couldn’t get out of bounds and picked up 3.  Cassel then hit Charles over the middle for a gain of 17 and spiked the ball with :20 remaining.  Charles caught the screen pass and ran out of bounds after picking up 18.  Cassel hit Moeaki crossing for a gain of 6.  They got out of bounds and Succop came on for a 32-yard try.  The field goal was good and that ended the half.

Chiefs 10 – 49ers 3

Standout Stat: The 49ers have just 4 first downs, all passing.  The Chiefs have 13.

Highlight Reel: Joe Nedney’s 51 yarder got the 49ers on the scoreboard.

Put it in Perspective: The Chiefs have 250 total yards in the first half compared to the 49ers’ 120.  the Chiefs have clearly focused on trying to shut down Gore who has just 16 yards on the ground.  The 49ers need to get the ground game going and string together some long drives.  It’s still just a one score game even though the Chiefs lead in most statistical categories.  They’ll get the ball to open the half and a good opening drive could swing momentum.


Kyle Williams took the kickoff and found a seam as he got out to the 35.  Tamba Hali brought down Smith on first down for the sack.  On 3rd and long, Smith hit Zeigler on an out to pick up the first down with a gain of 19.  At the end of the next play, Anthony Davis was called for a personal foul to back the 49ers up 15 yards.  That personal foul doomed the drive as the 49ers ran two more plays and had to punt.  Lee’s punt hit the goal line and rolled out at the 1.  Because the ball hit the line, it was a touchback.  One inch shorter and it would have been perfect.

The 49ers defense did well to force the 3 and out.  Clements made a nice play to trip up Charles for a loss on 2nd down and the 49ers brought pressure on 3rd and long to force the poor throw.  Mays was called for holding on the kick and the 49ers got the ball at the 21.

Smith though about scrambling on 3rd and 7 and threw it to Gore at the last minute.  Gore wasn’t able to hold on and Lee came on to punt.  Manny Lawson made a nice tackle on McCluster on the punt and the Chiefs next drive will start at the 49ers’ 45.

Haralson brought down Cassel as he got rid of the ball on first down.  On 2nd down, the Chiefs went with a reverse from the wildcat formation.  They flicked the ball back to Cassel who found Bowe down the field for the touchdown.  Bowe had beat Goldson who bit on the fake.

Chiefs 17 – 49ers 3

The kickoff went into the end zone for a touchback.  Smith hit Byham for an 8-yard gain to start the drive.  Gore picked up the first down on the ground and on the next play Smith was called for grounding after the Chiefs brought pressure.  The Chiefs were called for offside on 3rd down to make it 3rd and 10.  Hali dipped his shoulder and beat Davis off the right edge to bring Smith down for the sack.  McCluster called for the fair catch on the punt.  The 49ers were flagged for an illegal man downfield.  Five yards was added to the end of the return.

On 3rd down, Cassel hit Charles out of the backfield.  He was wide open for 22 yards.  Cassel found Tony Moeaki in the end zone behind the coverage of Patrick Willis.  Moeaki made a great one-handed grab to make it a three-score game.

Chiefs 24 – 49ers 3

Succop’s kickoff went out of bounds and the 49ers got the ball at the 40.  The 49ers picked up a first down out past midfield as the quarter comes to a close.

Standout Stat: The only stat that matter is the score – 24-3.  The 49ers will need three touchdowns to get back in the game.

Highlight Reel: Moeaki’s one-handed TD grab

Put it in Perspective: The Chiefs have made plays in the second half and the 49ers are in a tough spot.  The 49ers need to get 7 on this drive to stay in the game and get some momentum in their favor.


The 49ers went for it on 4th and short and Smith hit Gore out of the backfield to keep the drive alive.  The 49ers went for it again on 4th down, needing 8.  Smith overthrew Zeigler along the right sideline for a turnover on downs.  The Chiefs took over at the 27.

Charles got the chains moving for the Chiefs with a 20-yard gain as he bounced it out to the left boundary.  That was the last first down of the drive as the 49ers defense forced the punt.  Colquitt’s punt was downed at the 12.

Ron Edwards beat Baas up the middle and dropped Smith for a 9-yard loss.  The 49ers couldn’t get a first down on the drive as Smith’s pass to Davis on 3rd and long was batted down.  Lee had a 51-yard punt with a two-yard return.  The Chiefs got the ball at the 47.

Charles moved the chains for KC, ripping off a 17-yard run on 3rd down.  Jones followed suit with a 27 yard gain on the next play.  We have to run down to the field now to setup for the postgame press conference.  We’ll have more postgame coverage on 49ers.com.

    Yea i’m pretty sure Alex Smith is not the problem… I understand we want to get Frank gore the ball but when you run the exact same running play every time every game on the same downs and get the exact same amount of yardage and we still end up in third and long. Something just isnt making any sense there.

    SERIOUSLY…..how much longer do we have to watch this joke of a quarterback play. I’m so sick of watching the same thing every week. Throws five yards in front of him and still manages to throw the ball too high every time…..and another interception. I won’t buy any tickets to any more games until they get rid of this guy. The rest of the team is super bowl ready….except for maybe crabtree. Another wasted year. Makes me wonder if they can beat anybody on their schedule. 8-8 last year. 2-14 this year

    They are look’n like the same old 9ers, hot & cold; what is going on with these guys, last week, despite the misques..they came so close to beating the defending SB champs…this should be a cake walk….

    As the genius Bill Walsh would say, we are being beaten to the punch. Sluggish in defence and uninspired play calling for the offence. Its hard to believe this is the same team that gave me such optimism Monday night. But we are only ONE score down. Can they turn the season round? I hope so

  46. By james on Sep 26, 2010 | Reply

    Coach Singletary…………….Take a page out of the Walsh playbook and utilize your strengths on offense, not your weaknesses. Another thing, never challenge the rest of the NFL to stop our so called smash mouth running attack, because they will take you up on it.

    Jmmy Raye has no clue how to exploit a defense, play 2 strengths, manage time, etc…

    When will the 49ers wake up and stop wasting time with Alex Smith?!?!?! Poor decision after poor decision.

    this is a one td game. its sad to see the expectations of so many crumble. the
    offensive coordinator is offensive. jimmy raye your play selection and player
    in position decisions are poor. there really is a problem; and coaching is coming
    into question. if you believe the hype about all the talent we supposedly have.
    haven’t seen it yet. game against the saints was an embolism. the true nature
    of this team is 0-3 and going down the toilet! i truly hope they turn it around in
    the upcoming 2 nd half. but that won’t happen unless jimmy raye stops playing
    to the defense and makes them stop the arsenal of talent we have. 49er football
    “stop us if you can”. not “here comes frank again” he won’t last the season.
    big time defense is getting “B*^%$#@!!!!!!!!! Slapped. way to go girls!

    This is looking like a defeat. Neither the defense or the offense has shown up. No excuses. The 49ers are a disappointment. Get rid of Singletary, Raye and Smith and maybe we can start winning some games. I’ve been a 49er fan for over 35 years and thought that we had turned the corner this year. Some one please tell me anything positive from the the first half of play. Anything?

    This is ANOTHER example of the Niners getting out coached and not being able to make adjustments. The game just moves too fast for this coaching staff to be able to adjust on the fly, maybe because the OC is about 98 years old? It’s embarrasing and it needs to get fixed before the season is over.

    17 year faithful 9er fan; this is just so sad, nothing but slop from a bunch of players being paid an extroardinary amount of money; need to watch a better team with more promise, since there is none in SF. I have said if now for several years, Smith is no leader and has proved it over and over! The team needs a leader to match that talent!

    Old school offense is just that “Old School”… The only team the Niners can beat this year will be themselves. Will 4-12 win the west? Very hard to watch or even get on board.

    Who is running this team? Singletary looks confused. Did the coaching staff watch any film on the Chiefs? The game announcers have better ideas than what we are throwing out there. Let Smith call his own plays, I feel sorry for the kid having to run the sad little plays that Gramps is calling. We have the talent, let’s use it.

    i wonder why the Niner organization has refused help from Steve Young and Jerry Rice? What would they know anyway, right? I think Smith heard Youngs remarks about wanting to make something happen at any cost, imagine if Young could work with him on a regular basis. Imagine Rice running routes with our young receivers, it would be invaluable. I’d love to see a reality show on the Niners coaches during practice….on second thought, maybe not.

Especially in the NFL with its high expectations and rediculous amounts of money. Just stop going to the games. I can’t believe after last season they didn’t even look for another qb. Donovan Mcnabb maybe? Hes not great, but farrrr better than this douche. they were 8-8 last year but look at some of the teams they beat. Lions, Rams twice, Redskins. Basically they were a 5-11 team at best, and all they did was bring them back with some rookie lineman. Very very little intelligence within that organization

    I thought we had an unlimited number of offensive weapons, so why does the defense key on Gore & Davis and completely shut us down?
    How has keeping our starters out of preseason games worked out? How long did Crabtree hold out last season and how much money did we pay him, WOW?
    Jimmy Rae stop looking are your offensive film there is nothing to watch and start looking at your opponents offensive film, maybe you can learn something besides run up the gut.
    Mike what ever offensive scheme you believe u can impose through simply willing it so is a joke, non-existent and needs to be flushed.
    How about letting Alex do the play calling, letting all your players touch the ball, set Crabtree’s butt on the bench and maybe just maybe the team will score a few touch downs.

    Clearly Alex is not an NFL quality quarterback – he consistently waits too long, and he consistently throws the ball over the heads of his receivers. He has tunnel vision, isn’t very fast, and cannot make good decisions consistently.

    Clearly the offensive coord is not calling a good game, not making necessary adjustments.

    And clearly Singeltary is not head coach material – he simply does not inspire, he things the heavy hand, and ridiculous time out call at 1:41 left in the game shows what a putz he is. He has to go.

    Make a qb change now. Alex Smith sucks and its not anyone else fault we are losing but his. Until we make the change we are going to be this years Tennessee Titans who started 0-6 til they made the switch. We can go to David Carr or Nate Davis both of them showed determination in the huddle in the preseason. Smith is a lame duck, know one on the team even gets excited when he’s on the field. Until the change happens we will not win a game.

    Wow. We’re getting owned by the Chiefs. Completely OWNED. That’s pathetic.

    Raye needs to go. If he continues to call the plays and manager our offensive game plan, he will cost Smith and Singletary their jobs. And likely will ruin their chances at any other comparable positions in the NFL in the near (or distant) future.

    And it pains me to say it. But if Singletary can’t read the writing on the wall, he deserves it.

    Alex Smith has gotten almost a decade of second chances. If he can’t make it happen, someone else needs to. Troy Smith, Nate Davis, even David Carr.

    Again, something Singletary should be able to see but he’s too stubborn, blind or just plain clueless to get it. I was willing to give Singletary the benefit of the doubt when he fired Martz. Now he just looks clueless and stubborn.

    And I’ll take the Niners of the ’80s and ’90s over the Bears of the ’80s and ’90s too.

    What happened to last years defense? They were scoring most of the points. They were overwhelmed today. The offensive line didn’t make the running lanes for Gore and didn’t protect Alex so what can you expect. The defense looked like they’ve lost a step. It looks like a motivational issue to me. They weren’t fired up at the beginning of the game. What’s kicking the steam out of the team? Alex came to play and ran the ball to get the yards until it was obvious he had to settle for less
    I’m not sure what the psyche of the team is right now, but it’s obvious there is something emotional holding them back. Alex is a cerebral kind of guy and that may be his pitfall. Leadership is the ability to get the players to believe in one person who makes good decisions and follows through and brings out the best in everyone. Nate Davis seemed to fire up the team so I believe it’s more an issue of who the team believes in.

    I like Alex, and I know the Staff likes him and wants to get behind him. The team seems divided and wants someone else they can rally behind. Alex has an arm and is a good athlete but there comes a time when decisions have to be made. The will of the team may have to be considered to bridge the gap.

    They are a much better team than what we have endured in this season. Pre-season didn’t look so great for the first team. The second team looked great and I believe was the reason for their pre-season success.

    It’s time to change play callers. I understand we can’t change OCs in mid season but we need a guy who can trust Alex to THROW THE BALL. Running up the middle on 1st and 2nd down every single drive is not going to get us anywhere except 4th and long. I would trust Singletary to call the plays over Raye. Hell, I would trust Smith to do it at this point.

    How much money does everyone need to get paid to play well in this game? What have you been doing all off-season? Do you wish to have fans because I am about to hop cross the bay and route RAIDERS instead, even they look better then 49ers. Crabtree… leave! Smith…. Quit! Coaches… time for some brains, stay or leave but the object of the game is to win regardless of talent. Rookies I understand but there is no reason for Alex Smith to be so obvious with his route choices… I could pick him off from the other side of the field…. You would think his crossed-eyes would confuse the defense and be an advantage.

    We cannot keep waiting for Alex Smith to come around because he never will. He cannot read the defense and make the proper play adjustments. He is not a leader and you can see that on the field. We need a QB that is a leader and can make all his players believe in him and make them better. Alex needs to be benched and then traded.

    Alex Smith has been given way too many chances, and other than a few minor flashes, he’s never been anything other than consistently inconsistent. How long does it take to decide you don’t have a winning QB? I’d give David Carr a shot at this point.

    The telecast was talking about how the 49ers have so much “character” on the team today. Sorry but character does not win games. The 49ers may win the Nobel Peace Prize with the way they refuse to tackle. Yes, they are nice guys, good guys, but that does not win games.

    As far as Singletary, he may have lot of character, but frankly who cares? I’m not sold on it. He seems like a stubborn, angry man who “commands respect,” but then treats the beat writers like trash.

    He wears a huge wooden cross on his chest. You should live your faith, whatever it is, not shove it down other people’s throats. What if he has a few Muslims, or Jews, or Hindus, etc… on his team? Isn’t that alienating the players who aren’t Christian? A leader should bring people together.

    Anyway, character doesn’t win games… good coaching does. Singletary seems to get out-coached every game. And his buddy Jimmy Raye — who Singletary was ready to physically fight reporters last week to defend — seems like a slow, confused old man who is trying to establish the running game down by 21 points in the 3rd quarter. He goes 3 and out, over and over, throwing to the flats instead of attacking rookie safeties.

    Singletary, Raye and Smith need to go.

    To all the fans that seem to think that any criticism of your team by a fellow fan is a betrayal: 1. Criticism is healthy and leads one to believe you care for your team. 2. Criticizing your underachieving team after the same pattern for so many years is lucid eyesight not myopic insensibility. 3. Criticizing your team after such a prolonged pattern lets other fans know that you realize the insanity.

Smith, its ove rthis year. This Blog is over. No 1 pick ha, we could draft montana again and this staff would still make us look bad!

    This is a very young team with an inexperienced coach and inefficient/predictable play caller. Obviously attempting to run Gore up the middle was not the answer.But of course our coaching staff continues to disappoint us by being predictable. Ok I understand that you have to establish the run to establish play action, I get that. Today that just was not working against KC. So bring Anthony Dixon or Brian Westbrook off the bench and try
    either the same play or try some screen plays with them, something, but to continue to shove Gore down KC defensive throat was not the answer. Because our offense is so predictable KC was more than prepared for us on every level of the game. In relation to Coach S. maybe it is time to rethink his motivation strategy, stop yelling and start listening and stop getting in his own way. Obviously he is not a offensive coach such as Bill Walsh, so that being

    acknowledge this fact and hire omone competent, efficent and someone who knows his X’s and O’s. Also constantly yelling at your players on a regular basis can wear down a young player and in some cases cause confident issues. He needs to listen to his players, sit down talk with them, if he really wants to fix this team. The teams of the 80′s did not have the big name high
    paid players we now have. What they did have was heart, skills, good
    coaching , best owner in the NFL. With the calibur of players we have we must and can succeed once we get all our ducks in a row. And we will.
    What will it take? All of the above. At some point Jed York/49er organization will make right decision and fix this situation. Keep in mind though Bill Walsh
    only won 8 days in two years before going to the Superbowel. I know, we all
    want winners too. To be a true nine fan we are going to have to patient and
    see how much character this squad has. GO NINERS.

    Could this be the year that the Niners go 0 and 8 into the bye week? The only team I see on the schedule that they might beat is the Raiders. If not the Raiders, they go 0 and 8. Now that is pathetic. Time for some serious changes. I am not an Alex fan, but he even seems upset with the play calling. We need a coach that understand offense. Singletary doesn’t call the plays because he CANT, and his OC hasn’t got a clue either. It’s bringing the who team down. You can see it when the “top” receivers dont finish their routes and give up when Smith scrambles. Even the defense looked pathetic. How many times does Clements have to get beat before you sit him down? A lot of overpaid under achievers. Why not alternate Gore and Dixon? Maybe he would not be so dog tired after the half.

    One last point. They asked grandpa raye to come down from the box and be on the sidelines. His reply was, “I’ve been up in the box for 25 years, that’s not going to change.” talk about bull headed and unwilling to be a team player himself. I hate that they think their fans are stupid. It is a proven fact that communication is 50% body language, 40% tone, and a mear 10% actual words spoken, so how is Alex to have good communication with Raye on a stupid telephone from the sidelines? Alex does his best in the 2 minutes because he calls his own plays, he’s out there, knows what is being done to him, he gets the feedback from the other players on the field, football has changed, everything changes, I respect that they want to be a “smash mouth running team,” but first of all we are not one with the talent we have, and second that worked in the 80′s. If smash mouth football won super bowls, then what were the colts and saints doing in last years super bowl, it should have been to smash mouth football teams don’t ya think? Come on man, get with the times, just because you were a great player in the 80′s doesn’t make the 80′s idea and mentality of football the same as it is in 2010. Quit pissing around Jed, get holmgren or Cowher and lets get moving, not next year, NOW, get the deal made before someone else picks them up. When you pull your head out of your a$$ and you hear that big “Pop” sound, read you fans blogs. We are not as stupid as you think we are.

Mike, stop clapping your hands like everything is going to be OK, God isn’t going to win the game for us, he doesn’t believe it’s his job to win games for you, but it is your job to win games. It isn’t a game plan to run Gore, then run Gore, then run Gore, then to run Gore, then to maybe throw it to Davis or Crabtree. It isn’t a game plan to not pull Anthony Davis and Chilo Rachal.

    Every team in the NFL seems to be progressing and becoming a better team. Six years of sucking and still the niners are looking for a coach, coordinator, quarterback and a wide receiver?

    Singletary is a good defense coach but we need a strong offensive coach that is not afraid to push-back and gamble when conered. Simply, Jimmy needs to go, because of his play calling in the situation.

    KC had no respect for the defense and the offense wide-outs. The niners were not a threat to the end zone. It seemed like they practiced the whole niner playbook during the week–predictable.

    KC is good but not that good to produce a lopsided win just like the seahawks.

    I did not want to see the niners start this season loosing, but it is what is–Another long season!

    What is next? Against Atlanta? Against Philly? What will we learn from these spankings? What will the niners do different if everyone knows what they are going to do?

For me it would be more entertaining watching lee punt the ball 25 times in a game than watch raye call an ancient gameplan. Prediction Falcons 44 49ers 9.

    The success of this team is dependent upon the success at the QB position. Has been in the past and is the same now. As the offense does well, so will the defense. Some say the coaching is suspect, or this or that, the truth is that without a “playmaker” at QB, this team will not succeed! The offensive play calling is one thing, but the lack of a consistent, multi-faceted QB for this particular 49er team will spell only the demise of it! Period! I feel the defense feeds off of the play of the offense. While there will be some who think otherwise, that’s the vibe I get, cuz deep down inside, I don’t feel the defensive players really have much faith in Alex. Certainly, not to the degree they would, if say, there was a Michael Vick, Jeff Garcia or even a Nate Davis at QB. All of whom were at one time available and in the case of Garcia and Davis still are. And despite all the so-called “cons” of each of the pre-mentioned players, I feel that the potential “winning” that would result, would put to rest any ill feelings. At worst, you will at least have temporarily filled a void at QB that’s been long in need of some true consistent leadership and talent.

    This team on paper can play with anybody, we need the right leadership moving these chess pieces on the field. It really is sad to see my Niners play like this but until those 3 key components get fixed they will continue to struggle. Hardcore fans who understand the sport know this is true.

    Yeah, but isn’t Johnson a product of Jimmy Raye’s??? Why are we promoting within, when we don’t have a coach within worth the salt on his head (besides the defensive coaches)????

    This season doesn’t have to be a wash in a weak division that we are in if Jed would pull out his pocket book and get a real OC, Come on Man! Money talks, pay a OC a head coaches salary just to get him on board, like Homngren. Come on Man! LOL seriously now, use your heads front office, get experience with adaptability, there are some good coaches out there that posses both qualities (and, yes, under the age of dirt!)

    Sorry Singletary…the BUCK STOPS WITH YOU!! Your “run it down someone’s throat” is OLD SCHOOL…REMEMBER…”something old, something NEW, something borrowed etc…” You need a “FRESH NEW QUARTERBACK”….Nate could of lost 3 games and at least he had got his “reps” and start maturing into “something special”. Alex is a “great BACK-UP QUARTERBACK” and could help the young kid if necessary…as well as Carr. Football is about “Heart and who wants it more” AND not about “playbook”. Alex’s time is NOT GOING TO HAPPEN in this current environment! Lets get “Westbrook, Davis, Gore, and the cast of merry characters you used in the pre-season…REMEMBER It aint over until in the West until the “fat lady sings”….and she’s definetly warming up if you don’t do something soon!! GO NINERS!!

    So out of all the OC’s we’ve had, do you really think its them? Do you really believe they where all that bad? So they call the play “Ok Alex 3 step drop then when he’s open I want you to throw the ball 4 yards off the mark and about 3 or 4 yards too high so we’ll win the game” No they didn’t, I’m sorry but 23 completions out of 42 attempts is down right awful, College level. Or do you think the reason behind the bad play calling was just there confidence in Alex shinning through. 6 OC in seven years now on to another, it makes me sick to blame or hold anything against Jimmy Raye, he’s the best one we’ve had in a long time. I was at the game this weekend (as where a lot of upset 49er fans) When Alex was boosting the confidence of the Chiefs. Guys get a QB that shows talent. Talent. Talent. We’re gonna need it against Atlanta. It didn’t take them seven years to rebuild there team or 5 years to just bench there QB for good. Bring Nate back (or at least put Carr in) before its to late for you too Coach. JW

    Singletary has made this a reality show but he is the main character! The Chiefs?! Are you serious 9ers couldnt beat the Alabama Crimson Tide with our staffing. Pay Coach Saban to take another shot at the big leagues. I believe in Gore but we need a captain to guide us an Alex Smith is AFL material if that… maybe sandlot!

    I agree we can still win the Div, but gods sake will we please start using Westbrook and Dixin more.Dont get me wrong I love Gore, but dont run him into the ground before midseason. As for Alex Smith my confidence in you is really shattared show some LEADERSHP!! dude. Maybe you could learn something from 2nd year QB M.Sanchez.

    Oh and I have a question for “still grining” how many Super Bowl wins does your team have? please share, Iv got some of that Coffee brewing right now. Lol! He wont.

    How can every offensive coordinator be blamed for the same thing the previous was fired for. P L E A S E. What do people see in Smith? Can he steal a win from defeat? No, but he can create defeat from a sure win. Yes!! I have witnessed many times where Smith has had a chance to show leadership and take a bad situation and make it a good one, but it never happens. True talent will shine no matter what.
    Singletary why did you name this guy Captain. I know you are kicking yourself over that move cuz now it makes it harder for you to bench or release him. Personally I have seen enough. Place a Linebacker 5 yards off the line and to the left of the DE and glue him to the ground, I guarantee you he gets an INT. OUT!

    It seems like all the fans want Alex out but no one is listening to us. Maybe its because when Alex gets lucky and wins a game here and there we all get exicted, for myself I would like to see him OUT win or lose.The one that needs to be fired is the person who wont let go of Alex Smith.I wish the team would speak up a little you know they can’t stand smith either.We for the first time in 15 years look soft,I would love to know who’s idea it was to walk out on the field are first game holding arms together like little girls, I bet 1,000,000,000 dollars it was Alex Smith’s Idea.We have a new stadium coming and this soft look we not sell many tickets.This is a mans game forget about hurt feelings get it together NINERS!!!!!!!

    The only team Coach Cowher is willing to come back to coach is the Chiefs. He would never coach a mamsy-pamsy team like the 49ers or their fair weathered fans who don’t know how to make noise or don’t because it’s not cool to go berserker and actually affect the outcome of the game.

    My prediction for this year is: 2 – 14

    Next year will hope to see a “NEW STAFF”.

    49ers you are not the same team of the 80′s. Wake Up!!!

    All Pro sports fans understand and have patience for rebuilding years. The Niners decade long debacle is a disgrace. The San Francisco Bay Area is a special meeting of surf and soil and harbors millions of hard working “salt of the earth” people. Pro sports teams play for them, to lift them in their lives…Pro-athletes that play for personal glory are self-centered and ignorant. The Niners bring only pain and disgrace to our community …enough with the excuses, your losers, why exactly, I can’t possibly know. Please leave …go far, far away and don’t come back. I learned in business that there are winners and losers and you can never turn a loser into a winner. Disband , do the entire League a favor. I won’t bring up our heralded past …just go …go now ….30 Year 49er Fan.
