Live Game Blog: 49ers vs. Seahawks

Posted by Scott Kegley on December 12, 2010 – 11:37 AM

The 49ers (4-8) face the Seattle Seahawks (6-6) today in probably their biggest game of the season.  The 49ers are just two games back in the NFC West and will play three out of their remaining for games against divisional opponents.

The team will also turn to the quarterback who began this season as the starter.  Alex Smith certainly is familiar with Sunday’s opponent and believes he has all the skills to help the 49ers finish the season strong.

“I believe I have the ability to make all the throws on the field, athletic enough that I can make plays with my feet when I have to. I can handle any playbook out there, adjustments you have to make, calls, different things, protections, adjustments; I think I can,” Smith said.

“Have I done that consistently? I’ll be honest with you, no. And I think that’s what I need to do.”

Smith will need to do just that in order to keep his team in the playoff hunt.

Stay tuned for the inactives 90 minutes prior to kickoff.  I’ll also be speaking with Ted Robinson before the game for our “Teddy Football” segment so send in your questions if you haven’t done so already.

Inactives:

49ers - QB David Carr (3rd QB), K Joe Nedney, CB Tramaine Brock, RB DeShawn Wynn, CB William James, LB Thaddeus Gibson, T Joe Staley, T Alex Boone

Seahawks – QB J.P. Losman, (3rd QB), WR Mike Williams, WR Ben Obomanu, G Breno Giacomini, G Chester Pitts, T William Robinson, DL Amon Gordon and DL Jay Richardson.

FIRST QUARTER:

The 49ers got the ball to start the game.  Ted Ginn fielded the kickoff and returned it to the 26 behind a great block by Delanie Walker.  After two incompletions to start the game, Smith found Davis on third down for a gain of 22.  Brian Westbrook got the carry on the next play and picked up 8 yards up the middle.  Westbrook took the handoff on 2nd down as well and picked up just enough to keep the chains moving.  On the next play, Smith found Davis on the left side of the field.  Seattle’s secondary ran into each other and Davis had an easy path to the end zone.  It was a 42-yard touchdown pass.

49ers 7 – Seahawks 0


Leon Washington had a big hole up the middle on the kickoff return, but slipped up at the 37.  Hasselbeck hit Lynch to the left side on first down, but Lynch was hit immediately by Spikes and Haralson after a gain of 5.  On second down, Hasselbeck hit Tate on a screen to the right side and picked up enough for the first down.  Lawson brought pressure on third down and tipped Hasselbeck’s pass.  The ball was caught by one of the Seattle linemen for a loss of 2.  Ginn called for a fair catch at the 13.

Dixon got his first carry of the game and gained three yards on first down.  On 3rd down, Curry beat Rachal and dropped Smith for a sack.  The 49ers had good coverage on the punt as Brown brought down Washington at the 48.

Lynch gained five yards on first down, bouncing the run out to the right side.  On 2nd down, Hasselbeck hit Stokely for a first down as the ball was just beyond the reach of a diving Ahmad Brooks.  On 2nd down, Hasselbeck hit TE Chris Backer over the middle for 15 yards down to the 22.  After a false start, Hasselbeck hit Stokely for 15 yards to get another set of downs.  On 2nd down, Ruvell Martin beat Reggie Smith and was all alone in the end zone for an easy touchdown.

49ers 7 – Seahawks 7

Seattle had good coverage on the kickoff as Ginn took it back to the 27.  After a dropped pass by Crabtree on 2nd down, Smith hit Morgan on a slant for a gain of 21.  On the next play, Dixon took the pitch and cut it back to the left side for a huge gain of 34 down to the 15. Smith was running stride for stride with Dixon down the field and nearly threw a block on the last defender.  A block in the back set the offense back to the 20.  On 3rd and 15, Smith scrambled and tried for extra yardage as he was met hard  by Roy Lewis.  Reed’s field goal didn’t look pretty, but it went through the posts to regain the lead.  That was the last play of the quarter.

49ers 10 – Seahawks 7

Highlight Reel: The 49ers showed Seattle that they have to respect the deep ball when Smith hit Davis for a 42-yard score.

Standout Stat: The 49ers lead the Seahawks 135-69 in total yards.

Put it in Perspective: The 49ers did well to take the early lead, but the Seahawks responded.  The defense is playing well against the run, but Seattle can move the ball through the air.  Smith was beat badly on the touchdown after a double move by Martin.  The secondary must limit those big plays.

SECOND QUARTER:

Washington broke several tackles on the return, but it was called back because of a hold.  On 3rd down, Robinson lined up at quarterback and ran for a gain of 15.  On the next play, Hasselbeck’s pass bounced off Robinson, Lawson and was eventually picked off by Takeo Spikes.  The 49ers got the ball at the SEA 49.

Seattle jumped offside on 1st down.  Smith took a shot deep for Davis, but the pass was just off the mark.  On 2nd down, Smith was sacked by Chris Clemons.  On 3rd and 8, Smith hit Westbrook who made one man miss to get the first.  Dixon leveled Tatupu on the play.  On 2nd down, Smith hit Walker quick to the left side.  Walker made one man miss and gained 7.  On 3rd and 3, Smith hit Ginn on a cross route for what would have been a first down.  That’s Ginn’s second dropped pass of the drive.  Reed connected on a 44-yard field goal to extend the lead to 6.

49ers 13 – Seahawks 7

The Seahawks started their next drive from the 17.  On 2nd down, Hasselbeck dropped the snap, but was able to pick it up and scramble for a gain of 5.  On 3rd and 2, LaBoy beat the rookie left tackle Russel Okung and knocked the ball out as he sacked Hasselbeck.  LaBoy recovered the ball at the 17.

On 2nd down, Dixon got the carry but didn’t have much room to run as he gained only 2.  On 3rd and 8, Smith hit Morgan to the right side.  Morgan did the rest as he slipped one tackle and stepped to the side of another for a touchdown.

49ers 20 – Seahawks 7

Washington almost broke another return, but was tripped up by Walker at the 36.  On 2nd down, Hasselbeck hit Lynch out of the backfield and was forced out by Spencer after a gain of 5.  On 3rd down, Hasselbeck hit Morrah for a first down against the coverage of Spikes.  On the next play, Hasselbeck hit Stokely for another first down.   On 2nd down, Hasselbeck hit Lynch who broke Willis’ tackle.  It all came back though as Seattle was flagged for holding.  On 3rd and 4, Forsett was met hard at the line of scrimmage for a gain of just one.  Seattle will go for it on 4th and 3.  On 4th down, Hasselbeck lobbed it for Martin.  Spencer was in great position and was nearly interfered with, but still broke up the pass.  The 49ers get the ball at the 32.

Dixon got the carry on first down and picked up 3 up the middle.  Smith hit Davis on 2nd down as Seattle brought the blitz and picked up 3 more.  TWO MINUTE WARNING  On 3rd and 4, Smith hit Westbrook over the middle and the running back did the rest, breaking a tackle and going all the way for a 62-yard score.

49ers 27 – Seahawks 7

Washington took a knee in the end zone for a touchback.  Hasselbeck took a shot deep on first down for Butler, who pushed Goldson in the pack, drawing an offensive pass interference penalty.  Hasselbeck tried to hit Forsett on 2nd down, but the pass was low and incomplete.  Seattle still tried to throw the ball on 3rd and 20 and they paid for it.  Reggie Smith stepped in front of Butler, picked it off and returned it to the 11.  The 49ers have 3 timeouts with 1:26 left.

Smith checked the ball down on first and second downs.  On 3rd and 8,  Smith hit Westbrook over the middle, but Seattle closed quickly to bring him down at the 4.  Reed connected on the 22-yard field goal to end the half.

49ers 30 – Seahawks 7

Highlight Reel: Brian Westbrook showed he still has plenty in the tank on his 62-yard touchdown reception as he outran the Seattle secondary.

Standout Stat: Fans wondered how Alex Smith would play after getting the nod this week.  At the half, Smith is 13 of 20 for 195 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions.

Put it in Perspective: The 49ers are playing their best half of football this season.  Pete Carroll showed desperation at the end of the half, throwing the ball on 3rd and 20.  Reggie Smith made them pay for that decision as he picked off the pass to set up another Jeff Reed field goal.  Carroll is know for being a motivator so look for Seattle to come out fired up to start the second half.  With a 23 point lead, the 49ers can’t play cautiously.  They still need to come out and set the tone early.

THIRD QUARTER:

Washington returned the kick to the 24.  The 49ers started the second half the same way they finished the first.  Goldson picked off Hasselbeck on the second play of the drive and took it back 39 yards for the score.

49ers 37 – Seahawks 7

Washington returned the kick to the 32. On 2nd down, Lynch moved the pile and picked up enough for the first down.  Washington took the pitch on the next second down and reached forward for another first down.  On the next play, Hasselbeck hit Tate over the middle for a gain of 14.  Lynch then got the carry and cut it back inside for a gain of 9.  Michael Robinson got the carry on the next play and rumbled down to the 7-yard line.  On 2nd and goal, Hasselbeck lobbed for Stokely in the corner of the end zone.  Nate Clements had great position and made a nice catch four the 49ers fourth pick of the game.  The 49ers will take over at the 20.

The 49ers went with three straight runs and came up a yard short of the sticks.  Washington was brought down by Chris Maragos at the 29.

Hasselbeck tried to hit Butler deep on 1st down, but Butler couldn’t get both feet in bounds. Hasselbeck didn’t have anyone open on 3rd down and threw it at the feet of his receiver.  Ginn fielded the punt and picked up just a couple on the return.  The 49ers will start their drive from the 31.

On 3rd and 8, Smith hit Morgan who avoided one man and got all the way down to the 21 after a gain of 46.  The 49ers ran the ball on 1st and 2nd down once again and Smith’s third down pass was wide of Crabtree.  Reed’s field goal was good.

49ers 40 – Seahawks 7

The Seahawks won’t go away though as Leon Washington went 92 yards for a touchdown on the kickoff return.

49ers 40 – Seahawks 14

Ginn returned the kick to the 18.  Smith’s pass on first down was dropped by Davis.  Dixon got the carry on 2nd down and picked up 3 yards up the middle.  Smith hit Westbrook over the middle, but he couldn’t get to the first down marker.  Tate returned the kick and had plenty of room up the middle.  Reggie Smith brought him down at the SEA 48.

On 1st down,  Hasselbeck hit Lynch to the right side for four yards.  On 2nd down, Hasselbeck again threw wide for Lynch but this time Clements was right there to make a nice tackle for a loss of 2.  On 3rd down, Hasselbeck hit Forsett over the middle and was able to get just enough to move the chains.  That’s the last play of the quarter.

Standout Stat: The 49ers have forced five turnovers and have not turned the ball over on offense.

Highlight Reel: Goldson’s pick six set the tone on the second play of the second half.

Put it in Perspective: The 49ers are playing more conservatively after opening up a 40-7 lead.  The Seahawks didn’t go away as Washington returned a kickoff for a touchdown and are now threatening once again.  The 49ers will need to do better in the running game in order to wind down the clock on this game.

FOURTH QUARTER:

On 3rd and 2, Spikes stopped Lynch for a short loss.  On 4th and 2, Hasselbeck had Robinson wide open on the left side.  The pass was behind him and the former 49ers RB couldn’t make the catch.  The 49ers will take over at the 33.

Dixon took the handoff on first down and picked up 3.  Dixon got the carry on 2nd down as well and went around the left side of the line for 5 yards.  On 3rd and 2, Smith hit Crabtree quick to the right side for a gain of 2.  Washington called for the fair catch at the 18.

Hasselbeck hit Butler for a gain of 43 to start the drive.  On the next play, Hasselbeck hit Martin over the middle for a gain of 20.  On 1st and 10, Seattle was called for holding as Jean Francois got good pressure up the middle.  On 2nd and 20, Forsett got the carry and bounced to the right side for a gain of 4.  On 3rd and 15, Hasselbeck’s pass was high intended for Tate.  Mare’s field goal was wide right.

The 49ers got the ball at the 33.  Dixon got the ball on 1st and 2nd down and picked up a total of 4 yards.  Smith hit Dixon on 3rd down who turned the corner for the first down.  On 2nd and 12, Smith was nearly sacked but was able to tuck the ball, avoid the defender and pick up 9.  On 3rd and 3, Smith hit Crabtree on a short slant and the ball went right off his hands.

We have to run down the field now, but we’ll update the final score for you on Twitter.

    Alex Smith sucks, 1-6 as a starter, or did you people forget that? Hasn’t done anything in six years with the team, so why pull a guy who just got here, went 3-2 only lost to two 8-5 teams, and has a way better qb rating than Alex Smith ever though about having.

  47. By justin on Dec 12, 2010 | Reply

    The only reason why they’re winning now, is because they’re playing seattle and they suck just as bad as the cardinals, if Troy Smith was in there they’d have the running game going and the deap threat at least. Alex Smith isn’t and never will be a good qb. Troy Smith won the Heisman, 30td and 3 interceptions his senior year in college, look what he’s done for the team so far since he’s been here, why not let him continue what he’s started. Everyone rooting for Alex Smith, you must not have been a 49ers fan for the past 6 years.

    Alex smith has converted more 3rd down conversions today than Troy did in the 5 games he was in. Troy did OK but he doesn’t have Alex’s upside. Anyone that says Alex has had 6 years to prove himself is wrong. He was out for nearly two years with injuries and sufferred through several years of rebuilding (poor team no weapons). This team is still in progress but Alex has earned the right to be here as we start to turn things around. Go niners!

    this win won’t matter if we lose to the CHARGERS on Thursday because the first tie breaker to win the division is still BEST OVERALL RECORD.

    I have been waiting for this break out game. I BELIEVE. Even with Alex Smith got hurt I still knew he was good. Yes I booooooed and hoped he would never play in SF or NFL again. I woke up this morning and had a feeling he would shut ppl up. Next true test is in my hometown in San Diego. Come on Alex, you can do it buddy. I love my niners !!!!!

    usually I am the biggest skeptic on these blogs. I have to say good game all around. Offense looked ok and defense looked great. Good job alex. But lets see if we can win the big one this week against the chargers. I will be a believer in this team with a win on thursday. I have to say for once we didnt look stupid as a team. Lets go.

    great game. justin, you do realize that you sound like an idiot right? nobody cares to argue with you neither because arguing with you is like arguing with with a parrot that only knows a few words. okay, troy smith won three games, that’s good. he did his job as a backup, in fact he did better than he was supposed to do, that’s why they kept him in to see how long the “high” will last. well, it lasted long enough. the niners are at a point in their season where things are starting to click. troy smith made it known that the 49ers can use the field. we’re capable of big plays. maybe alex sitting on the bench and watching someone else have success with his team has benefitted him. clearly it has, considering the big plays today. 3 tds no picks. that’s pretty good. and no, it doesn’t mean that troy would have had more tds and even fewer picks. relax dude. the niners made the right choice with going with alex smith, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. next week will give us a good idea of what to expect for the post season. either we win under alex smith and he goes on to destroy the cards and rams… or we lose and have the alex smith discussion again.

    @Justin, you are an idiot. Get out of the 49er blogs. Anyways has ne1 noticed that the 3 touchdowns that came from Alex Smith came from the spread formation? Hmm sounds familiar anyone? Utah? Urban Meyer? Spread Offense? So tell me, why do coaches want players to adjust to their system when they don’t have a supporting cast? When the 49ers drafted Alex Smith, Mike Nolan did not work around Alex Smith. Instead we drafted nothing but defensive guys and only the LBs came out great. Now that we are still trying to build around the QB, we’ve seen that Alex does way better in the spread offense like he did with Urban Meyer in Utah. So tell me, are we going to keep having Alex Smith go under center and adjust to Sing’s offense or are we going to go Spread Offense and work with Alex’s strengths? 3 tds off Spread Offense…I think we should work around him and not against him Sing. Go 49ers, great win all around, Def rallied to get the picks but Chargers will be the defining game for us. GO 49er FAITHFUL oh yeah, @ Justin, get out of this 49er blog.

    Wow! at first I was hostile about Smith then I was blown out when I saw him throwing no tds! Best part no picks!! Im rooting for ya ALex, never had doubt in ya man I was upset from the games you lost on us. But still I got faith in ya. Please lead us to victory and a Playoff divisional winner.
    GOODLUCK on thurs!
    GO NINERS!!!
    Singetary is the best coach I have ever seen, he always gets out of the hole and we always play better throughout the end of the season. I predict were on a streak coming up now.

    hey guys, it is a “W”. i am not a alex smith hater, i dont like the way the offense has been ran all season. it is obvious that gore is not the only offensive player. it starts from the top on down in the 49ers organization. finish the year strong. lets win. get a vital component in the organization, a good gm and a coach that coaches to win, not afraid to make mistakes.

I knew Alex and the team would do very well, all we have to do is beat the Charges which we will and finish the rest, go to the playoffs and win the Superbowl. Stay positive and focused.

    Niners should have a shotgun formation most of the time, because that is the favorite play of Alex Smith also the defense was not able to sack him.

    also,have some bootleg play call.

    Well well well, First of all let me just say it was a good win. Now I do have to say that there are two things that disturb me about today. first is all of you idiots that boo alex from the first play. Im really sick of it. Second is Justin on this site just bashing alex after a good game. You can say all that you want about alex but the I have more respect for him now than ever to play at home and get bood is sickning but he over came it and played well. Oh and justin T. Smith would have never made the read on the throw to westbrook.

    GO NINERS!!!! What I saw today, not just Alex Smith being a leader out there and playing smart (I truely think he has the talent and smarts to do this), but also the NINERS as a team finally playing together. That is what wins games and wins divisions. Coach Singletary has been saying all year, that the team needs to finish and play together and rely on eachother, today they did this and I am so happy.

    Guys keep this up, play together and finish this strong, you are a great team, Love the NINERS!!!!

    Glad to see a convincing win but what is up with all the dropped balls? Crabtree had hands of stone today. This game was decided by turnovers. The proof will be if this team can get by San Diego on Thursday and win out the West the final two weeks. They won’t do much in the Playoffs if they play like they did most of the year. I would like to see them do something positive the last three games so Mike wouldnt have to “watch the film” so much.

  145. By KDB on Dec 13, 2010 | Reply

    It’s truly AMAZING to hear critics that NEVER played the game at a high level arm chair QB.

    Just listen to Jimmy Johnson and Brian Billick about A. Smith, then WAKE up and realize it’s a team game.

    Then, I have to just laugh and pray that these litte Boo Birds that change their spots after A. Smith plays well start cheering. and when they booed they didn’t even know what they were booing at because they don’t UNDERSTAND the game. And if you just booed the entire time, then you need some help because it ain’t football you are mad at. I pray for you.

    Now for the game—we played well in all facets except special teams and some defense still scares me, but oh well they can play.

    What is up with the drops by Crabbs and Ginn? Ginn we know is suspect but Crabbs–WOW that is concerning.

    How about Josh Morgan–what a champ.

    Yes T. Smith wouldn’t have made that read to Westbrook and that’s exactly why Alex is in there. And forget Nate Davis–Bless his heart–he can’t even read a book let alone a Defense.

    I have to give Sing a bit of credit for making the right move with Alex and for lett Mike Johnson call an agressive game. It made a Distinct difference as did giving Alex time to throw.

    Great Game for Alex Smith and Sing! THERE ARE STILL SOME “GLARING SHORTCOMINGS”, so I’ll just enjoy each game as it comes! tHE Niners have a “formidable task” in getting by San Diego, if they can make it happen this Thursday then this “playoff thing” could get very interesting. Wishing all the best for A.Smith & Sing…the Drama is just the way you would want to plan it….GO NINER’S!!

    I agree with the “drama” factor. Just when you write this team off, they keep you hanging on….kind of like the S.F. Giants this year…”TORTURE”..ONE GAME AT A TIME. Good Luck!!

    WHAT A TERRIBLE SEASON…..SINGLETARY IS A GOOD MAN, BUT HE CLEARLY IS NOT A HEAD COACH…..THE OC IS NO BETTER THAN RAYE.
    LET’S FACE IT…NO EXCUSES…IT STARTS AT THE TOP…THE YORK FAMILY ARE ARROGANT INCOMPETENTS AND NOTHING WILL CHANGE UNTIL THEY SELL. THE FANS WANT THEM TO GO AND THE NFL REALLY WANTS THEM TO GO.
