Live Game Blog: 49ers vs. Buccaneers

Posted by Scott Kegley on November 21, 2010 – 12:01 PM

The 49ers will be going for their third straight win today when the go up against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-3).  The 49ers are just two games off the pace of the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC West and a win would certainly keep them in the hunt.

Troy Smith will also be making his third consecutive start and Mike Singletary announced earlier in the week that Alex Smith would be active and would be the backup.  Joe Staley will also be out with a broken fibula.  Singletary did not say who would start at left tackle so I’ll have that update once it’s official.

The weather at Candelstick is pretty nice right now.  The field was covered and the grounds crew rolled off a lot of water.  Taylor noted that it looked like the world’s largest slip and slide and it reminded me of the scene in Bull Durham when the players slide around the base paths.

Stay tuned for the inactives 90 minutes before the game.  I will be talking to Ted Robinson shortly for our “Teddy Football” segment as well. Click here to listen to the audio.

View the photo gallery from today’s game.


49ers: QB David Carr (3rd QB), K Joe Nedney, CB Tramaine Brock, CB Williams James, LB Keaton Kristick, LB Thaddeus Gibson, T Joe Staley, T Alex Boone

Buccaneers: QB Rudy Carpenter (3rd QB), FB/TE Erik Long, LB Quincy Black, T Will Barker, T Derek Hardman, WR Preston Parker, DE/DT Kyle Moore, DT Ryan Sims

***LINEUP CHANGE: Barry Sims will start at LT for Joe Staley***


Tampa Bay received to start the game.  Adrus’ kickoff bounced short of Micheal Spurlock who returned it to the 24.  On 3rd and 4, Josh Freeman couldn’t find anything down field, but had room on the right side to scramble for the first down.  On 3rd down, Freeman was pressured, made the first man miss, but couldn’t escape Patrick Willis and Manny Lawson who combined for the sack.  Williams returned the punt and had his facemask yanked during the tackle.  The officials missed it though – no call.

The 49ers were stopped for no gain on first down, but Smith hit Gore on a nice screen on 2nd down for a gain of 14.  Smith just got rid of the ball as the Bucs brought pressure on 2nd down.  It turned out to be too much pressure as the Bucs were flagged for roughing the passer, giving the 49ers 15 yards and a first down at the TB 42.  Smith hit Morgan on a quick pass to the left side.  Morgan was hit as he made a move up the field and the ball came loose and was recovered by Tampa Bay.  A promising drive early for the 49ers ended with a turnover.

The 49ers defense came up big, giving the ball back to the offense after three plays.  They pressured Freeman on 1st and 3rd down and stuffed Blount on 2nd down.  Malone’s punt went over Williams’ head and he decided to let it roll.  The ball barely got into the end zone for a touchback.

The Bucs read the screen on 1st down.  Smith tried to scramble but was brought down from behind for a sack.  Smith threw for Gore on a screen on 3rd down.  Gore picked up 6, not god enough for the first down.  Lee’s punt was returned to the 38 by Spurlock.

Blount got the carry on first down and knifed forward for 5 yards.  On 3rd and 1, Willis hit the whole and dropped Blount for no gain – another 3 and out for the 49ers defense.  Spurlock took the snap on the punt and Anthony Dixon showed he could rush the passer, knocking down Spurlock’s pass.  That could really swing th momentun as the 49ers got the ball inside Tampa territory at the 47.

Gerald McCoy beat Rachal and dropped Smith for a sack on 1st down.  Smith scrambled on 2nd and long and had running room, gaining 15 yards and a first down.  Gore was stopped for a four-yard loss on first down.  Smith;s pass on third down was nearly intercepted and Lee came on to punt.  Lee’s punt was nearly perfect, but it took a big hop and Spillman couldn’t down it before it went into the end zone.

On 2nd and 10, Blount showed how difficult he is to take down as he plunged up the middle for a gain of 11.  Josh Johnson came in for Freeman and ran the option to the left side and gained enough to move the chains once again.

Standout Stat: After not converting a third down last week, the 49ers are 0-2 so far today on third downs.

Highlight Reel: The 49ers have had good pressure so far and Willis and Lawson were able to wrap up Freeman.

Put it in Perspective: The 49ers have struggled to regain their form after Morgan’s fumble on the 49ers’ first drive.  The defense has played well, but things are still scoreless. Blount has played well so far so it could be important for the 49ers to get out to a lead to take Tampa out of the running game.


1st and 10 from the 41, Freeman his Williams to the right side for a first down inside 49ers territory.  Freeman scrambled for a first down at the 16 and the Bucs are seriously threatening.  On 3rd and 1, Freeman gained just enough on a QB sneak. On 2nd down, Williams got the carry up the middle and was barely touched on his way to a 6-yard touchdown run.  It was a 14-play drive that lasted 7:31.

Bucs 7 – 49ers 0

Ginn gave the 49ers good field position to start the drive as he was tripped up at the 39.  Smith had Gore wide open out of the backfield on 3rd down, but the pass was a little behind Gore who couldn’t make the grab.  Spillman dropped Spurlock at the 21 after the punt.

The Bucs offense continues to move the ball well as Freeman hit Benn to the left side for a first down. Blount continues to get good yardage on first down.  This time he picked up four up the middle.  Before the third down play, Freeman called timeout as the play clock was winding down. On 3rd down, Reggie Smith came on the Blitz and forced a high throw by Freeman.  Reggie Smith called for the fair catch at the 31.

On 3rd and 5, Smith scrambled to buy time and hit Crabtree on a comeback along the left sideline for 15 yards and a first down.  Delanie Walker got the handoff on the end around on first down.  Walker was dragged down by the collar of his pads drawing the disapproval of the 49ers Faithful as no flag was thrown by the official.  On 3rd down, Gore got the carry on a draw and had nowhere to go.  Spurlock signaled for a fair catch at the 10.

On first down, Williams got around the right side and picked up 7 as the Bucs go with a hurry up.  Williams spun a gained enough for a first down on the next play.  Williams got one more carry and the clock will run out on the half.

Standout Stat: Blount has 55 yards rushing (4.2/carry) while Gore has 13 yard rushing (1.4/carry).

Highlight Reel: Blount is really running hard as evidenced by his huge hit on Parys Haralson.

Put it in Perspective: The 49ers offense hasn’t done much since their opening drive.  The Bucs are running the ball much better than the 49ers and the 49ers receivers have had a tough time getting open.  The Bucs’ sack were mostly a result of Smith holding onto the ball too long after not finding an open man.  The 49ers will get the ball to begin the second half so it will be important to get out to a good start and close the Bucs 7-point lead.  The 49ers did not play well in the first half, but the good news is it’s still a one-score game.


Tony Wragge took the kickoff on the bounce and returned it for positive yards.  I sure wouldn’t have wanted to tackle him.  Smith hit Morgan on the first play of the drive as he got out near midfield.  Morgan was shaken up on the play, but was able to walk off the field.  After a holding call against Baas, Smith hit Walker over the middle for a gain of 14.  On 3rd and 3, Smith’s pass was behind Crabtree, but the Bucs were lined up in the neutral zone so the 49ers still got the first down.  Smith hit Walker on 2nd on a screen to the left side to pick up 6.  Smith’s pass was high on third down and the 49ers elected to punt.  Lee’s punt was downed at the 6.

On 1st down, Freeman rolled to his right and hit Winslow for a gain of 11.  On 3rd and 7, Freeman made it look easy as he stepped up and hit Winslow crossing for 10 yards.  On 3rd down and 4, Freeman converted once again on a screen to Stroughter.  Freeman then hit Stovall along the right sideline for a gain of 22. On 3rd and 9 from the 29, Freeman hit Winslow who was met immediately by Goldson short of the sticks.  Barth’s field goal was wide left to keep it a one-score game.

The 49ers couldn’t take advantage though as Smith hit Morgan short of the sticks on 3rd down.  Lee’s punt was downed at the 6, but Brown was the first man to touch it after running out of bounds.  The Bucs will elect to have the 49ers re-punt.  That proved to be a costly penalty as Spurlock returned the next punt to the 36.

Freeman hit Williams for 33 yards to start the drive..  Then Blount broke a tackle and hurdled a defender for 16 yards on the next play.  On 3rd and 1, Freeman threw for Williams who caught the TD over Spencer.

Bucs 14 – 49ers 0

Ginn returned the kickoff to the 25.  On 2nd down, Smith hit gore over the middle for a 9-yard gain.

Standout Stat: The 49ers have just 112 yards of total offense.

Highlight Reel: Williams made a nice adjustment coming back to the ball for a big catch.  Spencer and Goldson didn’t see the ball.

Put it in Perspective: The 49ers offense has not been good.  They’re down by two scores and haven’t been able to get in a rhythm in the run game or passing game.  They need to keep drives going on 3rd down.  It’s do or die time and they might have to take some chances now on 4th downs.


On 3rd and 1, Smith rolled right and hit Gore to move the chains.  Smith was stopped short on the next third down, but the offense stayed on the field.  On 4th and 3 from the 44, Smith’s pass was too long for Davis who never turned around to see it.

On 3rd and 11, Willis came around the left side and dragged down Freeman from behind.  Willis is pretty fast.  The 49ers nearly blocked the punt.  Williams fielded it and returned it to the 18.  With 11:23 remaining, there’s still plenty of time.

On 1st down, Smith tucked it and scrambled for 6 yards.  On the next play, Smith threw it right to Ronde Barber who returned it to the 7.

On 2nd down, the Reggie Smith was flagged for defensive holding.  1st and goal from the 3, Blount was stopped just shy of the goal line.  On 2nd down, Spikes flew to meet Blount in mid-air for the stop.  On 3rd down, Freeman rolled right and threw a TD to the tackle, Donald Penn.

Bucs 21 – 49ers 0

Ginn reversed his field twice and got out to the 31.  On 1st down, Smith scrambled up the middle for 11.  On 2nd down, Smith was under all kinds of pressure and was sacked for a big loss.  Smith made up for it, hitting Walker for 23 yards on the next play.  On 3rd down, the 49ers were called for an illegal shift.  On 4th and 3, Smith’s pass was overthrown intended for Zeigler on the right sideline.

We have to go down to the field now, but we’ll keep you updated the rest of the way on Twitter.

    I must admit when I saw alex suited up it made me sigh a bit. I dont want to see that dude out on the field. Sing and alex need a vacation somewhere together until the season is over.

    Again, too little too late! Why does this team always fail to show the drive they need at the beginning of games? They could have stayed in it if they would have been more aggressive in the first two quarters; it’s like they just sat back and said, “were not losing by much, so we don’t have to worry about it yet”! Now it is to frigg’n late…it is time for Singletary to go, you have to push the team to win and when there is nothing happening then there needs to be a spark made for them. The O-coordinator and headcoach are at fault on this one!

If we keep firing and hiring everyone then no one will feel safe from being fired, and thus no one will really care about the team. If no one cares about the team then no one cooperates enough to win a game. Just keep doing what your doing coach, you have my support. One step at a time to return to the glory days in SF!

    Dear Mr York,
    I just had to respond to Mr Singletary’s disgraceful coaching. When your team is down at or near the 30 yard line you must try and score points and not punt. This sends a terrible message to the team that I don’t have anybody I trust to kick a field goal. I’m 56 any overweight and I can kick 30 yards. This is an absolutely un-excusable poor coaching decision. If people are hurt you have a backup. The team is losing and the coach has given up or is not capable of making good decisions. You must act, Show the team & your fans that you care. He must be fired. It’s mid season you say… Look at Dallas. Give your team a chance, Please show some leadership.

    to all the 49ers players, You have no heart! You SUCK. The O line you are terrible. No blocking what so ever. To the coaches way to blow it. 3 weeks ago I was hoping you would lose out. Then comes the false hope again. Do us all a favor and lose out. The only positive thing this season will be a good draft pick that will also in turn lead to false hope. A win today proves this could be a playoff team. HAHA ya right. Coaching is terrible, line cant block anyone, DB’s cant cover high school receivers, receivers cant catch a cold or get open to save their lives, and we cant sack a QB either.

    Good job, you beat the rams, the raiders, and the broncos. WOW!!! 3 teams that arent going anywhere. I am a die hard fan that is tired of watching a team that if the would take their heads out of their a$%@s could be good. But no one wants to be out there fighting. So why dont you just do what you want to do and that is quit. Forefit the rest of the season, because you dont want to be on the field anyways. Do youselves a favor and QUIT!

    need to address a lot of things this offseason which should begin right now since this team is going no where in the most pathetic division in the league. You cant win this division with the amount of talent you are SUPPOSED to have, you should just call it a year.

    From all the niner fans who feel the same way, Thanks a lot guys for nothing. Hope you lose out so at least the draft is exciting for us. We will battle the bills for the overall #1 pick. GO niners!! HAHAHAHA really pathetic. You should be ashamed of yourself. Get shut out at home… REALLY?????? WHERE IS YOUR HEART????

    Thanks Les. I had to check what else was posted since my last comments. I wish the coaches/owners would look at this blog. FRom what the fans say its obvious that we could probably run this team better than what we have in there now. But As bad as our team is being run, the players are as much to blame. These money hungry pansys. They wany more money, but do nothing to earn it. The only ones out there earning their paychecks are gore and willis. They would kill themselves for the team. The others with oooo my ankle, my finger, my hamstring… Oh quit the crybaby stuff you bunch of babies. Strap on your chinstrap, tighten up your jock (or G string in our case) and play football. You want to listen to deion and get your money, well shut up and earn it.

    IF you all played as good as YOU think you are we would be 10-0 vs 3-7. I love this team, but they have no desire to play and have not showed me they can compete. Im glad they wont make the playoffs because that would be even more embarrasing than not making it. We can only play with bad teams not good teams.

    Here is my challenge to the players. Either win out convincingly or lose out and save everyone alot of time and energy. eventually we will get back to the show but not any time soon.

    Also, troy, you played well the past 2 weeks. But stop trying to be vick. you cant run every play. Get the ball down the field like we know you can. If not you can join big mike in the job replacement lines.

    Definitely not Troy Smith’s fault today. Offensively play calls where horrible. Didn’t have the feeling like anything was going to happen. Always seemed like 3rd and long. Kurt Warner even said they were playing conservative. you play like that with a lead, not from behind. 49ers put no pressure on the Bucs at all today. So they are what 2 games out of 1st now thats hard to believe. As much as I want them in the playoffs I would rather not watch them take an extra beating.

    I dont know how many weeks we need to look at film, correct the mistakes, play conservative, etc. We started 0-5, that should give the coaching staff a hint to open up the playbook. What the hell we got to lose. I watched this game from Germany, and I was sick to my stomach to see Troy Smith run for his life. The defense didnt do much, but just gave up a TD in three quarters and the offense never complimented the defense. We played a good team – i think the coach said that. Well guess what? Every week we play a good team. I hope Alex Smith’s X-Rays comes back positive, because i dont want to see him at quarterback. Troy Smith is a scrambling Qtrbk, he got sacked a few times and threw for a pick. If that was A.S. he would have gotten sacked, would have fumbled the ball a few times, throw at least 3 ints, etc. Troy Smith should play the remainder of the season and see what he can really do under the circumstances. I hate to say it but i think the HC, and the rest of the coaching staff needs to get fired. There’s no creativity on offense or defense. This once proud franchise is a joke. I am going home for Thanksgiving to see family and we are going to play tackle football without pads, and I bet we can go into Candlestick and take it to the 49ers. We can just go deep on Reggie Smith, Nate Clements, etc…the entire secondary sucks. This team is so predictable! Sorry for venting. Happy Thanksgiving to all the 49er Fans!

    time to fire the coach..actually way past time..he is dumber than a box of rocks…

    …this Troy boy is actually worse than Smith…

    Troy Smith is not the answer either… in fact troy smith at his best moments is not a dynamic a Alex smith at his best moments…. It’s simple when you spreed a defense out a little more it forces the defense to show it’s tells…..

    This idea that an ’85 bears offense will work in the 21st century (is well something I would think coach Singletary would have a high enough IQ to recognize…..

    If I were to go to any other QB besides Alex… I would see how Davis could do… he has the arm and the additude ….

    No apologies Eddie, Most 49ers fans feel the same way, we had to many up and downs this season. If the Yorks don’t clean house by the end of the season, they are the problem. They have no clue what to do with the organization…Hopefully we can get some good draft picks next year and a whole new coaching staff? We need a prover HC not another experiment!

    Believe or not we still may have a chance all the other teams in our division lost yesterday haahaahaa NFC West is so weak!

    Troy did well considering predictable play calling and banged up OL…He was running for his life Tampa defense must of love playing against such a predictable offense.

    L.G. thanks. Yeah, can you believe that we still have a good chance. My brother(a Rams fan) made this comment, “Imagine the NFC West winning the division with 7-9 record, maybe have a home game against a team with a 12-4 record.” Can you imagine the 49ers doing that and make it deep in the plays. I would be ecstatic. But one game at a time. I know WE BETTER WIN AGAINST the rest of the Division. GO Niners! I agree L.G about the York Family. They have to go as well. :)We have one of the best RB, (2)TE, good WR, and we can’t get it done. UNSAT!!

    This was still a “win-a-ble” game until the late 3rd quarter and I agree “this offense is still at best a little vanilla”!! NO URGENCY!!! Troy is still working out the “bugs” and I think a “solid team” will still give the 49ers trouble until they are “clicking as a team”! Don’t give up on the niners quite yet….lets run the table and see what happens, cause the “West” aint exactly burning up the league!! GO NINERS!!

    All the NFL teams enjoy playing the Niners. It is the same as a second Bye week. Teams get healthy and build confidence against us. Singletary always says he “needs to look at the film” whenever he cant answer a simple question. After he is canned, give him a job “looking at film” and put a talented Head Coach on the sideline and someone upstairs who knows how to adjust at halftime. We have neither at this time. Tampa had just 6 sacks all year and doubled that amount against the Niners. We never seem to finish our routes. Other teams get open, why dont we?

    Gee, I just went back and read all my comments from Sunday’s game. First of all, I am such an idiotic optimist. AND…why was so stupid to watch the whole game and post all my dumb comments wasting 3 hours on a Sunday. I sure need to get a life.

    I don’t like the slamming if sing…it is not all his fault that the gameplan didn’t work…it is the offense cordinator that sets up the gameplan…now sing can change it if he fells like it but going agianst Tampa bay they have on of the worst run defense so far this season so i think they stayed with the run think they would fold…but I have to say that they shoul dhave seen in at least middle 3rd quarter that the run wasn’t working and they should have done what Troy does well and that is trow the ball and scramble…for some reason the o-line played like crap when they had been pretty solid for the most part…if the o-line could have pushed the line Gore would have been able many more large gains…but i think the big part of lossing this game was most in part of the o-line…and to all the so called fan out they says they are done with the 9ers i say good rid dens we real 9ers don’t want you “Fair Weather Fans.”

    Well as always Im happy to say it’s great to see a change at QB win or lose, and I hope as a 49er fan that they can get things turned around and figure out a wining formula. As far as are history goes when we win we do it well every superbowl we got to we won and when we struggle we do that well also, but we moved foward by a QB change hopefully we don’t ever feel the need to look back to smith. As far as coaching goes it’s Mikes first full year and he needs to be given a fair chance maybe at least 2 seasons.The only thing we can see up to this point is that he is a great motivator and can keep a losing team together during losing times. It’s obvious you need more than motivation to win games but hopefully Mike will figure that out.

    Dear Mr. York and Family

    Spend more money and hire a better Coach. You have brought shame to this organization by being cheap and wasting the money you spend on weak draft picks. Walsh may he rest in peace was the best thing that ever happened to your organization you need to higher better talent. Pay more and hore a Better Coach! It really sucks for all us fans to know that the entire team depends on Frank Gore, we have the right pieces but not the right people to put them together.

    Troy Smith is a good QB the line needs to protect him. The coaches need to have him gve the ball to more than just a couple players. Sing comes from a running background but has to understand that that cant be his bread and butter with this team.

  233. By UpLateAgain on Nov 22, 2010 | Reply

    Down by a couple of scores late in the game, 4th and 2 on their 33. What do we do? Try the FG? Nope. Can’t count on the repl kicker making a 50 yarder. Go for it? Nope. What if we don’t make it? They would get the ball on their own 33! I know ….. Let’s PUNT the friggin’ thing! Of course… it will likely roll into the end zone and come back out to the twenty…. but WTF! We can’t risk maybe keeping a drive alive when we can gain 13 whole yards of field position down on their end of the field instead!

    Can’t lose the best offensive lineman on your team and think the O-line will not skip a beat. Throw in two rookies and oouch!! Troy may or may not be the answer, but given the O-line situation, I am soooo happy he is named starter for Monday night. Lose another game (G.B.; S.D. to play yet) and see what Nate can do…win/win situation. Need to upgrade D-backfield as a first priority in off season.

    I am afraid it might be too late for Frankie before they get it righted, which would be a real shame!!! O-line in the future will be great!!

    Alex Smith Hands down is our best QB and I’m glad people can stop pointing the finger at him now because Singeltary and his coaches have been EXPOSED BIG TIME. Tom Brady in this system with these coaches would and don’t have a chance.

    Enough said.

    Somone start the TAPS music please. It’s obvious what needs to happen but when will it. Let Tom Rathman finish the yr as Head Coach.

    I’m out.

    I meant to say more clearly, no QB would do well in this system or lack there of.

    One last note. Most all of the Alex haters would have blamed him for this game and I am basically just pointing out that all along it hasn’t been him as to why this team is and has been losing. He’s made some blunders but now we all see what the trugh is.

    Troy Smith is an ok QB too but it ain’t all his fault either why we went down HARD.

    Long live the Niners but wow we are wounded.

    KDB…I will bite my tongue til the end of the season before I make judgment as to who is mostly to blame for the wounded duck that is the san francisco 49ers.

    Suffice to say, four things are for sure in my opinion:

    1) Im glad Alex Smith is on the sidelines holding a clipboard.

    2) Troy Smith has been a breathe of fresh air because of his tenacity, vocal leadership, and ability to inspire his teammates.

    3) I am tired of hearing Coach Singletary say, “We’ll look at the film”. He has no answers.

    4) We will lose another heartbreaker next week to Arizona, 24-21, because Larry Fitzgerald will go berserk against our porous secondary and our defense will make Derek Anderson look like a Pro Bowler.

    CFR-Agreed on point 4, and no doubt Troy is fun but you know I like Alex too but it doesn’t matter, we need to CLEAN HOUSE, alot of it at least.

    We’ll be back but just not sure when. I’m sorry to say that because of this product on the field I will not renew my season tickets next season as of right now.

    come the off season we need to work on 4 possions FS,SS,CB,and QB..i feel if we can get a couple of good draft picks and /or a couple ggod free agents in those places we will be a force next year and be a team to contend for atleast the NFC chapionship…9er fan forever…lets go 9ers
