Live Game Blog: 49ers vs. Raiders

Posted by Scott Kegley on October 17, 2010 – 10:51 AM

It’s a rainy day at Candlestick for the “Battle of the Bay” between the 49ers and Raiders. The 49ers will be wearing pink today to support breast cancer awareness.

The 49ers should be fairly healthy for the game as only TE Delanie Walker and S Curtis Taylor are listed as out on the official injury report.

Stay tuned for the inactives at 90 minutes prior to kickoff.

Inactives:

49ers - QB Troy Smith (3rd QB), WR Kyle Williams, S Curtis Taylor, TE Delanie Walker, T Barry Sims, G Tony Wragge, T Alex Boone, WR Jason Hill

Raiders - QB Bruce Gradkowski (3rd QB), RB Darren McFadden, CB Walter McFadden, RB Michael Bennett, LB Travis Goethel, LB Thomas Howard, DT John Henderson, WR Chaz Schilens

I spoke with Ted Robinson prior to the game for our Week 6 edition of Teddy Football.  You can also check out our photo gallery that we’ll be updating throughout the game.

FIRST QUARTER:

Joe Nedney kicked off to open the game. C.J. Spillman didn’t waste any time showing his special teams value, flying down untouched on the kickoff and taking down Jacoby Ford.  The Raiders went with a flea flicker to open the game.  Louis Murphy was wide open, but Spencer got back and interfered to prevent the catch.  After the penalty, the Raiders got the ball at the SF 42.  On 3rd down, Campbell somehow escaped the sack and threw the ball to Bush for a gain of 7 and a first down.  Bush got the carry on 3rd and 4 and gained enough for the first down.  The ball was fumbled and recovered by the 49ers, but Bush was ruled down. Singletary tried to challenge the play, but the forward progress is not reviewable.  The Raiders were able to convert on 3rd down yet again on the drive as Campbell scrambled for a gain of 9.  On 3rd and goal from the 9, Campbell looked for FB Marcel Reece in the back corner of the end zone, but the pass was too high.  Sebastian Janikowski connected on a 27-yard field goal to give Oakland the lead.

Raiders 3 – 49ers 0

Ted Ginn returned the kickoff to the 29.  Alex Smith play faked and took a shot for Josh Morgan deep.  The ball was catchable but Morgan couldn’t hold on.  Smith was elbowed in the helmet after he threw and the offense picked up 15 yards thanks to the personal foul.  Frank Gore got his first carry of the game and showed nice patience on a run up the middle for a gain of 15 and a first down at the OAK 44.  On 3rd and 13, Smith’s pass was broken up by Rolando McClain.  Spillman made another great play on punt coverage, wrapping up Nick Miller for no gain.

On 3rd and 1, Bush picked up just enough on a run up the middle.  Bush was hit hard by Dashon Goldson but was able to walk off the field.  Rock Cartwright replaced Bush with both McFadden and Michael Bennett out.  Isaac Sopoaga made a great play on 1st down, breaking through the middle and hitting Cartwright for a loss of 3.  Goldson was called for unnecessary roughness after the play however and that gave the Raiders a first down at the 32.  The first quarter came to a close on a run by Cartwright out to the 45.

Highlight Reel: Gore’s 15 yard run up the middle on the 49ers only drive showed very good patience.

Standout Stat: The 49ers have run just 5 plays compared to 19 for the Raiders.

Put it in Perspective: The Raiders controlled the clock in the first quarter, but have just 3 points as the 49ers defense prevented the touchdown.  The Raiders have all the momentum right now.  The 49ers have limited the Raiders running game, but Oakland has converted 4 of 5 third downs.

SECOND QUARTER:

The second quarter started with a 43-yard end around to Murphy, giving the Raiders a first down at the 12.  The 49ers defense was again able to stay strong in the red zone, forcing the field goal by Janikowski.

Raiders 6 – 49ers 0

Ginn took a knee in the end zone for a touchback.  Smith was sacked by Matt Shaughnessy on first down for a loss of 2.  Smith picked up 9 on 2nd down as he hit Morgan crossing to the right.  Smith’s pass on third down was to Crabtree and went right off his hands and was nearly intercepted.

The Raiders’ drive lasted just one play as Manny Lawson make a great play to dive in front of Zach Miller to make the pick.

The 49ers got the ball at their own 43-yard line.  Smith converted on 3rd down, hitting Vernon Davis who found a spot in the zone to pick up 12.  Gore got the carry on 2nd down and bounced out to the left side for a gain of 5.  Smith had Josh Morgan open deep on third down, but the throw was over his back shoulder and Morgan couldn’t see it.  Andy Lee punted and it bounced into the end zone as the 49ers will net just 14 yards.

The 49ers defense forced a 3 and out.  Campbell’s third down pass was well behind the receiver.  Lechler’s 42-yard punt rolled out of bounds at the 37.

The 49ers couldn’t get anything going on their drive either.  On 3rd and 9, Smith’s pass was knocked down intended for Crabtree.  Miller returned the punt to the 17.

The Raiders went three and out on the drive as Higgins couldn’t get two feet in bounds on 3rd down.  Ginn returned the kick to the 31.

The 49ers again went three and out as Oakland brought pressure on 3rd down and hit Smith as he threw.  Keaton Kristick downed Lee’s punt at the 7.

The defense did well to stop the Raiders on three straight runs to force another three and out.  The 49ers called timeout with 2:31 left in the half.  Ginn returned the kick to the 49, but they’ll start the drive at the 16 after the holding penalty.

Smith hit Westbrook on a screen pass on the first play after the two minute warning.  Westbrook picked up 19 and got out of bounds at the 40.  Smith moved the chains on 3rd down, hitting Crabtree out past midfield.  Smith hit Morgan on the next play. Morgan gained 35 with some nice moves to the 19.  Smith then hit Davis for a gain of 6 and spiked the ball to stop the clock with 15 seconds left.  Smith threw too high for Gore on 3rd down and the 49ers had to settle for a chip shot field goal.  The 24-yarder was good as the 49ers cut the lead in half.

Raiders 6 – 49ers 3

Campbell took a knee to end the half.

Highlight Reel: This has to go to Manny Lawson for his diving interception in front of Zach Miller. Lawson showed great athleticism and hands not to let it hit the ground.

Standout Stat: The 49ers lead the Raiders in total yards (124 to 119), but are just 2 of 8 on third down.

Put it in Perspective:  The 49ers defense has done a terrific job defending the Raiders rushing attack.  Murphy picked up 41 on an end around, but Bush has averaged just 2.4 yards per carry.  A touchdown to end the half would have been huge, but settled for the field goal.  They’ll get the ball at the start of the second half.  It will be important to get off to a fast start after halftime, something the 49ers struggled to do at the start of the game.

THIRD QUARTER:

Ginn returned the kick to the 49, but the 49ers were called for holding and will start the drive from the 21.  Despite a holding call, the 49ers were still able to pick up a first down thanks to a nice pass to Crabtree and a short run by Gore up the middle.  Smith was sacked by Tommy Kelly on 2nd down.  Smith threw it away on 3rd down as he couldn’t find an open receiver. Miller avoided Spillman and returned the punt to th 49.

On 2nd down, Willis hit Campbell as he threw and the Raiders were called for holding against Haralson.  On 3rd and 17, Campbell avoided the sack, but couldn’t get by Brooks who made a nice tackle in the open field.

The 49ers started their drive from the 9.  Smith converted on 3rd and 3, hitting Crabtree on a short slant.  On the next play, Gore took the direct snap and picked up 11 out to the 45.  Smith moved the chains again on 3rd down, connecting with Davis on an out route.  On 3rd and 9, Smith hit Ginn on a short slant and Ginn nearly broke it for the score, but was brought down at the 22.  An intentional grounding call backed the 49ers up, but Smith made good connected with Crabtree on a 32-yard touchdown pass on the next play. It was a 13 play, 91-yard drive.

49ers 10 – Raiders 6

Highlight Reel: The best play fo the quarter was also the last play of the quarter.  The throw from Smith was perfect and Crabtree hauled it in to give the 49ers the lead.

Standout Stat: The 49ers converted 3 of 4 3rd downs in the quarter.

Put it in Perspective: The 49ers now have the lead and the momentum.  The defense has played well so far and will work to get the ball back once again.  It’s still just a one score game.  The last drive was easily the best for the 49ers today – 13 plays, 91 yards.

FOURTH QUARTER:

The Raiders began their drive from the 11.  Haralson brought down Campbell in the end zone, but he was ruled down at the 1. Campbell called his own number and plunged ahead to gain 1 on 2nd down.  Campbell’s 3rd down pass was barely too long for Louis Murphy and the Raiders will have to punt from their own end zone.  Ginn didn’t have much room on the return as he got out to the 44.

The 49ers went three and out on their drive as Smith hit Davis on 3rd down, but he was well short of the sticks.  Lee’s punt took a bad hop and was downed at he 23.

On 3rd and 8, Campbell got rid of the ball to a wide open Zach Miller as he barely avoided the sack.  It was a gain of 22 as Miller was all alone.  Mays nearly picked off the next pass, but it went off his hands and Miller was able to catch it, giving the Raiders a first down at the 27.  On 3rd and 5, Campbell’s pass was to low for Miller.  Janikowski hit a 40-yard field goal to cut the 49ers’ lead to 1.

49ers 10 – Raiders 9

The kick went out the back of the end zone for a touchback.  Gore broke a huge run on 1st down and followed Crabtree’s block for a few more yards down to the 16.  Baas pulled and made a great block along with Norris on the right side.  Dixon came in and broke it for a touchdown, but Staley was called for holding.  The 49ers got the touchdown on the next play anyways.  The 49ers faked a screen to the right and Smith threw back left for Davis who was wide open for the 17 yard score.

49ers 17 – Raiders 9

Jacoby Ford returned the kick to the 29.  Campbell tried to get rid of the ball as Jean Francois brought him down.  The ball was backwards to Bush, but Bush was able to recover as the ball was live.  Bush couldn’t hold onto the 3rd down pass and the 49ers get a much needed three and out.  Ginn returned the punt to the 38.

On 3rd and 11, Gore got the carry on a draw and wouldn’t be denied, fighting off a tackle for a gain of 14 yards.  We’ll have to go down to get ready for postgame now, but follow us on Twitter for updates.

    Alex Smith, is a nice guy but he does not exude leadership. I hope he sits down if he is playing like last week. Second chances and drama is gettin hella old. Alex, needs a fresh start elsewhere. A QB that has Bravado, charisma and a fierce arm Is the solution. Also, Nedney should have kicked that field goal game before last. Andy Lee, is great but, Nedney, would of made that goal!

    What is with all of you Smith haters & BooBirds … is anyone actually watching the games? Smith has absolutely no help. Receivers drop balls that are catchable or are not running the correct routes. Every 3 out of 4 plays he is scrambling or on his back because there is no protection from the front line. Penalty after penalty on linemen that are offside’s or holding; 9 men on the field; 12 men on the field. Continually stupid mistakes being made by players on the team OTHER THAN THE QB. There is no QB in the league that can be successful under these circumstances – not Brady, not Manning, not Young, not even Montana! Wake up people and support your QB and place the blame where it belongs – on a team that needs to quit making mistakes. Play smart and they will start to succeed with a very talented QB named Smith running the show.

    Any Alex bashers need to pack ur bags and back off-this KID HAS MORE GUTS than ANY OF US.

    About time they showed some running, protection and some D. I bet you Ignorant Alex haters were blaming Alex for the Staley holding penalty that negated Dixon’s run-that’s how IGNORANT to football you all sound and are most of the time that bash this kid- if you pulled the other players that made MORE mistakes repeatedly than Alex’s like you talk about Alex and really compared appples to apples-you wouldn’t have a team left if you pulled them.

    To everyone out there how many times do you have to make excuses for a qb? Did he not get drafted #1. So why is it he has not gotten settled yet? Who cares if he has one offensive coordinator or 12? Do you think that would have made Montana or Young worse? If so you have problems. Today he did win a game but not really. He made one good throw and many throws he just threw away. He makes the same move every week. He snaps, takes a few steps back then runs either to the left or right while going backwards then throws it away. This is almost a constant accurance. Something needs to be done about it!! @ Alex Smith, You can only live on excuses for so long they will catch up with you. However, good job today for the win.

    Alex smith is still costing my team every time he takes a snap. He misses wide open wrs n still can not read the safety. He rushes throws n goes n 2 this dink n duck mess even wen there is no pressure. GET RID OF SMITH.

    The statement that Brandon Dringle has commented about Alex Smith is absolutely correct and I do agree with him wholeheartedly.

    SF 49ers management and coaching, please if you’re listening, we as fans know that we are not in the meetings and all the practices, but, we do watch the games. We no longer care what A. Smith looks like in practice, he does not perform in the game, he is gun shy/scared/something, how many chances are you going to continually give him. Just for our sanity, please stop playing A. Smith. With his 0-5 start, shouldn’t we give another QB a try at it. I mean what is it going to take another loss for 49ers? Do we need to constantly complain about his(Alex Smith) ineffectiveness to lead a team.
    Especially a team like the 49ers where we had great players in the 80s, Jerry Rice, Joe Montana, Ronnie Lott, Steve Young, John Taylor, etc.

    Hey Terry,

    At least we agree on our TERRIBLE COACHING STAFF. What a mess we really have. That’s why I think it’s just such a DEEP problem, no QB would fix this mess. Even the folks like Rich Gannon, Jimmy Johnson and many others say what that it ain’t one guys fault. This organization is trying to figure out who the heck they are too.It’s bad.

  369. By z9ers on Oct 17, 2010 | Reply

    Paul if you know so much about football why arent you coaching the 9ers or better yet strap on the pads and go play qb. If you really know football than you would see that alex has only played a role in our losses to this point. O-line has to play better period!!! Qbs are not successful when they are ending up on their a** every time they drop back. Oh and Alex does need to do a better job of playing defense, I mean he just cant keep letting those teams like the raiders did today take the ball on those 80+ yard drives. And Alex needs to make sure he doesnt fumble anymore punts like what happened in n.o. oh and alex should secure the ball after he gets and interception that would have sealed the atlanta game. Paul ive gotta hand it to you, you sure know alot about football!!!!

    Great win but horrible watching Alex Smiths horrible vision down field. He can’t spot the open man because he plays scared.I hear alot of fans say it starts with the coach, well if we do get a new coach the first thing he will do is get rid of Alex Smith.
