Live Game Blog: 49ers at Chargers

Posted by Scott Kegley on December 16, 2010 – 4:57 PM

The 49ers (5-8) are just one game back in the NFC West.  The Chargers (7-6) are just one game back in the AFC West.  With both teams needing a win to aid their postseason chances, Thursday night’s contest should be a good one.

If you’re unable to watch the game on television, check out NFL Network’s coverage online at NFL.com/live.

The inactives were just announced by our PR staff and it’s good news for 49ers fans as both Patrick Willis and Takeo Spikes are active.

Inactives:

49ers – QB David Carr (3rd QB), K joe Nedney, CB Tramaine Brock, CB William James, S Chris Maragos, LB Thaddeus Gibson, T Joe Staley, T Alex Boone

Chargers - WR Patrick Crayton, S Darrell Stuckey, S Tyrone Carter, LB Larry English, Louis Vasquez, WR Malcom Floyd, TE Antonio Gates, DE/DT Travis Johnson

Before the game, I spoke with Ted Robinson for our Week 15 edition of Teddy Football.  Robinson discussed the Chargers’ and 49ers’ injury situations and the impact they might have on tonight’s game.

FIRST QUARTER:

Jeff Reed kicked off to Darren Sproles to start the game.  Sproles returned it to the 26.  On 2nd and 5, Rivers hit McMichael over the middle for a gain of 9 and a first down at the 40.  Two plays later, Rivers tossed it deep for Vincent Jackson who fought off Nate Clements, broke the tackle and took it in for the 58-yard score.  It was a 4 play, 75-yard drive.

Chargers 7 – 49ers 0

Ted Ginn returned the kickoff to the 25. Alex Smith rolled to the right, but couldn’t escape the pressure and was brought down for a loss of 2.  Brian Westbrook made up for the early loss with a nice run to the left side on 2nd down to make it 3rd and 5.  On 3rd down, Smith hit Crabtree on a quick out to the right.  Crabtree was able to turn up field for 9 yards and a 1st down.  On 1st down, Dixon got the carry up the middle and picked up 8.  San Francisco called timeout after Dixon was stopped for no gain on 2nd down.  On 3rd and 2, Smith tried to set up a TE screen to Walker, but the pass was a bit high and Walker couldn’t reel it in.  Spillman dropped Cason on the punt right after he caught it at the 8.

Tolbert stumbled forward on 1st down for a gain of 5.  On 3rd and 3, the 49ers brought the blitz, but it was picked up well to allow Rivers to hit Sproles for the first down.  Tolbert had another good first down run, bouncing it out to the right side for a gain of 5.  On 2nd down, Justin Smith pressure Rivers but he was able to get it away to Hester.  Willis was right there to drop him for an eight-yard loss. On 3rd and 13, Rivers was hit by Justin Smith as he threw and the ball skipped low of his receiver.  Ginn fielded the punt, but Adams was called for a block in the back.

After the penalty, the 49ers began their drive at the 24.  Smith hit Walker in stride on 1st down.  The ball was perfectly thrown, but dropped by Walker.  On 3rd and 10, Smith got the ball away to Morgan, but only for a gain of 5.  On 2nd down, the 49ers only rushed 3 and Rivers scrambled after not finding anyone down field. Sopoaga pursued and brought him down from behind for a loss of 7.  On 3rd and 16, Rivers hit Sproles who was upended by Clements after a pickup of only 2.  Ginn fielded the punt with a man right in his face.  He made one man miss and sprinted up the right sideline.  Ginn drilled Scifres at the end of the run.

On 1st down, Dixon moved the pile up the middle for a gain of 6.  On 2nd down, Smith hit Morgan on a slant.  Morgan made a great catch to pick up 13 down to the SD 39.  On 1st down, Dixon had a hole to the right side and gave a stiff arm to break one tackle and get all the way down to the 22.  The 49ers ran the ball on 1st and 2nd down and picked up just two yards total and that ended the first quarter.

Standout Stat: Philip Rivers has a quarterback rating of 151.4 in the first quarter.

Highlight Reel: Mike Tolbert lost his helmet on the Chargers’ first punt.  Adams saw Tolbert and cracked back on him for a devastating block.

Put it in Perspective: Other than the first drive, the 49ers have defended the Chargers’ offense very well.  They’ve come up with timely sacks and have kept the 49ers in the game.  Walker and the 49ers can’t continue to drop passes if they want to get the win.

SECOND QUARTER:

On 3rd and 8, Smith had Ginn wide open in the left side of the end zone, but didn’t see him and ended up throwing it away.  Jeff Reed hit the 38-yard field goal, but San Diego was hit with a personal foul to give the 49ers a first down and new life.  On 3rd and goal from the 7, Smith escaped the pocket and dove for the left pylon – TOUCHDOWN 49ERS!  Norv Turner challenged the call and the call was overturned and the 49ers offense came back on the field.  Dixon was stopped for a loss on the play – turnover on downs.

Hester gave the Chargers some working room with a gain of 6 on 1st down.  On 3rd and 1, Hester got barely enough for a 1st down.  After a delay of game made it 1st and 15, LaBoy stopped the runner for a loss, but Justin Smith was flagged for pushing the ref after the ref pushed him.  Smith was tossed from the game – unbelievable!  The referee pushed Justin first and Smith was just trying to get away from him and it’s a huge swing.  On the next play, Rivers hit Sperry who got all the way to the SF 42.  On the next play, Rivers hit Jackson on the right sideline for a gain of 15.  On 2nd down, Rivers hit Sproles out of the backfield to the right side for a gain of 5.  On 3rd down, Rivers hit Jackson who paid the price for the first down as he was drilled by Willis.  Rivers hit Kelly Washington down to the 7 on second down.  On 3rd and 2, Rivers hit Jackson crossing in the back of the end zone, but Jackson’s right foot was out of bounds as he came down.  Kaeding hit the field goal to extend the Chargers’ lead.

Chargers 10 – 49ers 0

Ginn returned the kick to the 25.  Smith rolled left and hit Morgan down the left sideline to midfield.  Morgan bobbled the ball as he went out of bounds, but it was ruled that the Chargers defender was out of bounds when he recovered it.  On 2nd down, Westbrook got the carry to the right side to set up a 3rd and 3.  On 3rd down, Antonio Garay got good pressure as he totally pushed pack the 49ers offensive line and dropped Smith for a sack.  He beat Chilo Rachal on the play.  The Chargers will take over at their own 13 after the fair catch.

On 2nd down, Rivers pass fluttered to Ahamad Brooks, who couldn’t make the easy grab.  On 3rd and 10, Rivers hit Washington who had tons of room to run down the right sideline and the missed opportunity on the pick hurt the 49ers dearly. Brown was called for a late hit out of bounds to give San Diego a first down at the 36.  Matthews had a nice run on first down, taking it to the left and avoiding Spencer for a gain of 14.  On 2nd down, Rivers hit McMichael who juggled the ball but still managed to get a first down at the 11.  On the next play, Jackson was wide open for the score.

Chargers 17 – 49ers 0

Ted Ginn hesitated on the return and only got back to the 17.  On 2nd down, Castillo sacked Smith as Anthony Davis finished the play on his back.  On 3rd and 13, Smith found Morgan at the original line of scrimmage for a gain of only 3.  The 49ers let the clock run down to 13 seconds and called timeout before the punt.  Cason returned the kick just past midfield.

With 2 seconds left, Rivers looked deep, but had pressure from Lawson and threw it away.

Standout Stat: The 49ers defense didn’t do any better against Rivers in the second quarter as Rivers finished the half with a quarterback rating of 144.4.

Highlight Reel: It wasn’t a highlight play, but it will definitely make the postgame wrapup shows.  Justin Smith pushed the official out of the way and paid the price as he was ejected from the game.  It not only gave the Chargers a big first down, but it hurt the 49ers as they lost one of their biggest leaders.

Put it in Perspective: The 49ers have an uphill battle in the second half, trailing 17-0.  They played the Chargers tough in the first quarter and nearly tied it up at 7-7 on the Alex Smith run.  He was ruled short and Dixon was stopped for a loss on 4th and goal from about an inch out.  The 49ers will get the ball to start the half and they have to come out and get points early in order to get back in the game.

THIRD QUARTER:

Ginn returned the kick all the way, but it was called back.  On 3rd down, Smith was hit as he threw.  He had a man open, but the pressure forced a bad throw.  Cason returned it to the 42.

On 2nd down, Rivers hit Sproles out of the backfield for a first down.  on the next play, Tolbert bulldozed his way up the middle for 11.  Two plays later, Rivers hit McMichael over the middle between the coverage of Spikes and Willis for another first down.  Rivers flicked the ball to McMichael on 3rd and 10 and still picked up another first down.  On 3rd and 1 from the 3, Tolbert was stopped for no gain.  The Chargers went for it on 4th and Tolbert dove forward for a gain of 2.  Two plays later, Tolbert punches it in to make it 24-0.

Chargers 24 – 49ers 0

Ginn returned the kickoff to the 22.  Shaun Phillips sacked Smith on 2nd down as he continues to not have very much time to throw.  Smith hit crabtree on 3rd down, but they only picked up 7.  Cason returned the punt to the 31. 

Ryan Matthews picked up a first down for the Chargers, getting just enough on 2nd and 2.  Rivers hit Sproles on the next play, getting down to the SF 45 along the left sideline.

Standout Stat: The 49ers have just 5 first downs.

Highlight Reel: Tolbert punched it in from one yard out to make it a 24 point lead.

Put it in Perspective: The 49ers had chances, but everything they’ve had several miscues that have been costly.  They’ve been outplayed in all three phases of the game.

FOURTH QUARTER:

Vincent Jackson scored his third touchdown of the game, virtually ending any hopes of a comeback.

Chargers 31 – 49ers 0

Ginn returned the kick to the 28.  On 1st down, Smith hit Ginn on a comeback down the right sideline for a gain of 9.  On the next play, Smith hit Morgan on a skinny post down to the SD 44.  On 2nd down, Smith hit Ginn as San Diego brought the blitz and they were able to pick up 5.  Barnes beat Sims off the line of scrimmage on 3rd down and dropped Smith for the sack.  On 4th down, Smith had to force it and it was picked off by Steve Gregory.

Matthews picked up 14 after the Chargers pulled Rivers.  Matthews was stopped on 3rd down. Kaeding hit a 39-yard field goal to extend the lead.

Chargers 34 – 49ers 0

Ginn returned the kick out to the 30.  On the first play of the drive, Smith hit Morgan who was able to break some tackles down the left sideline for 36 yards.  A face mask penalty against San Diego tacked on 15 more yards.  On 3rd and 1, Dixon rushed up the middle for a first down.  On 2nd and goal, Westbrook rushed up the middle for the 3-yard score.

Chargers 34 – 49ers 7

We have to run down to the field, but we’ll have coverage on 49ers.com following the game.

    man this whole team just isn’t good. heading into the half with a big 0 on the scoreboard again. I know its not all alex’s fault, but a little talent on his part definitely wouldn’t hurt either. And TERRIBLE play calling, as usual

  53. By mike on Dec 16, 2010 | Reply

    we needed points before the half, choke…player of the half for the 49ers has to be andy lee. sad when the punter is the player of the half. i hope they dont make the playoff. bye singletary, smith, clements, and any other let down..oh wait thats the whole team

    who the **** paid off these officials tonight. This is a joke.

  55. By KDB on Dec 16, 2010 | Reply

    Robert you are right. Brooks huuuge dropped int and now ahuuuge play for them, except a flag.

    Also Alex is very Talented and just needs some play calling and coaching, he’s actually very good.

    Oh and look another penalty.

    I’m sorry fellas, this is all coaching in my book.

    I still think we can win this game!!!

  56. By Why bother on Dec 16, 2010 | Reply

    I have seen the light. I know even if we lose tonight we still have a chance to go to playoffs but what’s the point. We are a sure one and done…. I’d rather the picks new coaches to teach theses talented guys how to play the game..

    Refs are great! Justin Smith getting ejected was a joke. It is hard to watch a team that I have loved since I was a kid be this bad. I hope management makes the right decision and hires a good GM before a new coach.

  58. By PAniners on Dec 16, 2010 | Reply

    i hope alex i watching rivers. at least he can see a what a good quarterback looks like. Theres still time for a 3 and out so they can get the ball back and make it 24-0

    I think the receivers are pretty good. Morgan has been really good lately and the tight ends are always good, that is if alex can get the ball more than 3 yard in front of him. Last week only happened because of yards after the catch and the 5 turnovers. a lot of which were well into seattle territory. this week gives you an accurate depiction of alex. can’t come through when he needs to

We can’t play with these guys, we can’t coach with these coaches, Can’t do it. We want winners, we need people who know how to win. Gruden please hear to this calling. We need better coaches. It starts from Top down. We desparately need a Coach. We aren’t going to get a high draft pick because we won’t be a 2-11 team or 3-13 team. we’ll be 7-9 if lucky and end up with a draft pick at 14 where we’ll lose a high quality Qb draft pick.

    Here is the bottom line. I have been watching football and the 49ers since 1982 and what I’ve seen lately is garbage. Mike Singletary is a freakin idiot and Alex Smith is an insult to the average QB. He can’t throw, his accuracy is no better than pop warner and his scrambling abilities resemble a three legged dog in heat. With all the weapons on this team why the hell are they not using them like they should. All I freakin see is handoff to dixon, hand off to westbrook and qb sack. Once in a while he might throw it to morgan, crabtree or davis but again, is accuracy sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He is garbage. They should have started the other Smith, you know, Troy, the one who resembles another QB that wore number 8. Furthermore, if you have a coach that is clueless and makes bad, scratch that, horrible decisions than no matter how much talent you have, your going to suck, bottom line!

    No need to make a head coaching change with only two games left. Clearly, there’s no playoff bid here. Just play out the string and clean house after the regular season.

    KDB, Mike L and the rest of those guys don’t understand why any of our QBs won’t do good. We’ve been out coached and never had another QB’s coach since Mike Martz. If we were to have kept Mike Martz he would have been airing it out on Spread even though we’ll get INT’s we’ll still get points. I agree that our last great coach/coordinator was Norv Turner. Mike Nolan was a D-Coordinator who drafted our defence. Mike Singletary needs to stay as LB’s coach like he did with Baltimore or work with our Defence just for P. Willis. We need a QB’s Coach as well as a OC and a HC. What Mike L and the rest don’t realize that we’ve lost our whole O-line (Joe Staley, Eric Heitman, Adam Snyder) and we lost our biggest key Frank Gore. It starts from Top to bottom and I don’t know why we still don’t run the Spread Formation. Bad coaching, bad plays, great talents but no coaches to utilize it.

    Game officials are some of the best supporting staff of Chargers for this game. Smith goes down with face mask in hand; no call. Heart of offensive line tossed for nudging someone next to him that happens to be official. Player could have jumped over tackler, yet called for late hit. 49r touches facemask and lets go; flag. Interpretation is in eyes of influenced, huh. Oh gonna call on now. Make up too late

    49er Fans,
    Can anyone tell me what time the 49ers play? Cause i am watching the Chargers vs. the Nobody’s right now.

    After the game lets all watch the film and figure what went wrong.

    I recommend we give HC, OC, DC, and Alex Smith another 6 yr contract and lets see what they can do. And if that doesnt work, lets look at film again, and give’em another 6yr contract. What do you think? If that doesnt work, lets look at film again. I’m fking LMAO!, because i am just in shocked at the score. 34-0 as i am typing. And for those of you who keep bashing us for bashing Alex Smith – now you see why! Although it is not all his fault, but you have to blame someone. And Alex didnt do enough, oh my bad, yes he did, he got sacked, ran for his life, made unwise decisions, etc. The defense, sucks, the offense sucks.
    And Smith getting ejected had nothing to do with how the defense and offense played today. But i guess we can use the short week as an excuse.

    Our 49er Team are pathetic!
    Oh we just scored. :((((((

    I guess in some ways, “we are who we thought we were” We need offensive linemen and an innovative offensive coordinator that knows how to open up the field for realistic options. We are playing sandlot style right now because there is no blocking. Alex needs to know where the receivers are going to be where they are supposed to be. Troy may have faired better in this ragtag style of crisis management, but we cannot move forward that way. Sure I’m disappointed and I’m sure the team is also. What is the answer? Offensive linemen and a good blocking back, receivers that run precision routes and a few plays that are designed to get people open. How about that for starters?

Give that coach 2 years to draft and build around the QB’s we have whether it be Alex or Troy and we’ll be fine. But I guarantee you if Jed York wants to low ball then we’ll have another coach that doesn’t know the X’s and O’s. Sing can be D Coordinator but thats all. Only to coach up Patrick Willis.

Eddie DeBartelo asked Bill Walsh who to draft. Eddie didn’t do the drafts, it was Walsh. Walsh built the drafts around Joe Montana because Montana had great release and picked up Jerry Rice because he could run after the catch hence the WEST COAST offense. Then he picked up Steve Young from the Bucs where Young was doing horrible at but knew he was doing bad because the Bucs organization was doing bad. After Montana he built around steve young who had a rocket arm and can run. All you ever know is W and L UVSlam. You clearly don’t know your own team as well as what to do with our team.

No point in ruining someone else’s career if we can’t even bother to coach them. Pick them up but don’t throw em in the water like we did with Alex and ruin their careers.

    8 years of losing football, worst in franchise history. The blame starts at the top with ownership making pathetic decisions on their hires. Then the pathetic hires make poor personnel decisions. The poor personnel fail to perform and execute because the poor management hasn’t got a clue.
    Time to fire everybody, especially the ones at the top of the organization.One or two years of problems might be the players’ fault but 8 years of failure is owner’s and management’s fault. Until good changes are made at the top, we’ll have the same crap next year too.

    Mike Johnson’s play book is real simple: wr- run down field and get open that goes for the TE’s to. Lineman block the person in front. RB’s just run to an open spot and QB throw to whoever is open. Same plays I drew up when I was a kid playing in the street after school.

I’ve been a fan since the Siefert era and watched Walsh’s film because everyone was talking about his West Coast Offense. You say you know the 49ers? You haven’t given us any clue as to how Bill Walsh was successful so that to me shows me you’re just a bandwagon fan and you tell everyone that our team has 5 superbowls. Throw yourself out of this 49ers team and take Singletary /staff with you.

    You’re full of it Rathman. Walsh knew how to move personel around the field to get the match-ups he wanted. That’s how his offensive mastemind got him his place in the hall. Brodie, who I watched play was a good quarterback. Montana, who I watched play his first game was a quarterback who understood his role and had the athleticism and ability to execute Walsh’s plays. I watched Young get drafted out of BYU by the then orange Tampa Bay Bucs only to later come to the 49ers and flourish. I watched backs like Wendell Tyler, OJ, Waters, the real Rathman run for the team. All you do is talk. You’re clueless!!!! You don’t belong on this blog talking circles and making no sense at all.

    No KDB, Alex was not the sole reason why we lost. However, he did nothing to help give us a chance to win. He is mediocre and you know it.

    O-Line – Weak. Nate Clements – Weak (Stop dancing in the end zone). Special Teams/Morris – Bonehead plays that cost us momentum to start the 2nd half.

    Coaching Staff – The Worst in the NFL bar none.

    During the fourth quarter, I took off my Crabtree jersey and ripped it to shreds in front of everyone at the sports bar.

    Troy Smith is 100 times better than this guy and its been PROVEN this year alone. This 34-7 shellacking was 100 times worse than the 21-0 loss to Tampa Bay because we were coming off our best game of the year vs Seattle and yet Alex did nothing to sustain our offensive momentum. Nothing carried over to this game.

    At least Troy Smith has the you-know-what to lead vocally and get his teammates to believe in him. All Alex does is walk with his head down every single time the camera pans over to him as he walks to the sidelines following yet another three-and-out.

    Our new team name should be San Francisco Three-And-Outers. Because this team is certainly not worthy of being called the 49ers. Period.

    Three days before the game vs. Seattle, I predicted a Niner win 41-13. Lo and behold, we won 40-21.

    Last night, I said this to KDB: “Just wait and see Thursday night and you guys will see what I’m talking about. Alex will buckle under the pressure of a must-win game and he will be back to his old self, throwing interceptions and orchestrating three-and-outs as often as Kobe Bryant scores points. I hope I’m wrong and he goes out and manages a great game. But I’m probably right.”

    My reaction after tonight’s game: The Niners are so predictable in everything they do that I am guaranteeing SF will lose to the Rams next week.

    Alright to start, this is for Jed york. I have been a 49er fan all my life i watched Bill Walsh and Steve Maruicci win games and coach great. Then we fired Steve, was it because he new how to win and he wanted to much money, hey stupid pay the man. If you care about this team then sell it, to some one who wants to win. I’m just so tired of high hopes every year, just to watch them lose.My kids have grown up Niner fans cause that’s all they knew. My youngest child took thier Niner shirt off today and told me they didnt like the team daddy likes cause they always lose. I grew up with them being a legacy in football and was a proud niner fan.After tonight i have boxed up all my 49er gear and will donate it to charity, so sorry Willis, Spikes, Crabtree, Gore, Westbrook, and most of all Davis at the end of the year ask to be traded so your talent is no longer a waist. Singaltary do the franchise a favor quit you were a great player but a lousy coach. Alex smith please im sure your a great guy but what ever you majored in collage make that your new job cause your the biggest bust in draft history. Im hurt to lose faith but after my kid told me that tonight ive lost all hope my name is Adrian and i was a fan for life, till york is gone or pulls his head out of his rear I will not watch football again. I dont ban wagon jump and ill always stay a 49er faithful but my patience has ran out.

Coaches, Troy should be the one to start these last to games. He is the one who got the 49ers this far to have a chance to make the playoffs. Alex smith hads what 6 years in and still can get it done, You 49ers coaches and owner need to weak up.

    98% of these posts are ridiculous. Alex Smith is not to blame. I don’t think we have a qb on the depth chart that would ever be higher than 2nd string on any other team, however Smith isn’t to blame. I like Singletary as the head coach but can we please please please hire and OC that will stick around and can actually call plays that make sense. Play 1 – run up the middle. Play 2 – all verticles by the receivers (soooo deceptive) play 3 – bubble screen. And its a wonder why we go 3 and out. The defense is phenominal but they spend so much time on the field due to an extreamly high number of 3 and outs. (Props to Andy Lee tho!) Draft a corner in round 1, an olb in round 2, sign a qb from free agency or trade for one, and please for the love of god hire an offensive coordinator that’s worth a damn. Case and point: kansas city cheifs! You can’t deny haley isn’t a great coach but look at who is calling the plays. It is what it is. BAD COORDINATING!!!!

No it is not just his fault but you have to give a lot of the blame to the person that touches the ball ever down. When Troy lost he took the blame and when thay won he gave credit to his team. That’s what leaders do. I don’t see Alex standing in the locker room giving a speech after games. Wake up!!!!! At least we play losing teams the next 2 weeks.

Mike Johnson Qb coach who wasnt ready to be OC period. Do I blame him NO! If u r given an chance to move up the ladder you take it. With that said he is not ready he may be good one day but remember he did not design this offense Raye did. With that said Johnson is not a good play caller right now and does nothing to try and create matchups with his play makers by moving them or motion and playing to their strengths. I mean I know that it is a pretty new thing but on 4th and less than a yard there is a new play called qb sneak???

We are not good a developing players and allowing them to do what they do best. Look around the league at the way that other teams use specific guys specific ways. New england doesnt line up wes welker and tell him to run gos all day they play to his strengths. Sd doesnt put sproles at TB and run iso 20 times.

Where is our free agent star or our danny woodhead. We dont have them because we dont draft them. 5th our coaches dont hold players accountable. I keep hearing crabtree doesnt run his routes the way that they are supposed to be ran, well sit him there r hundreds of guys that would love the chance to play in the NFL and would run every route right every time. Every one was saying that the patriots were giving up their season when they traded Moss but those guys that do things right have picked up the slack and the patriots look un stoppable.

    Exactly z9ers…losing Gore was unfortunate but here we have Brian Westbrook who used to kill the 9ers on a regular basis. I am yet to see us run any sort of play to use him the way he is meant to be used. Other than his td catch against seattle that is. And even that was a hot route…not a designed play. Given the personnel the 9ers have we should be running a colts esque offense. Spread it out, run quick routes to find holes in the zone and when need be check it down to westbrook (one of the best receiving running backs since marshall faulk). Plus it would give Alex smith more time to progress through his reads which when given time Smith has shown some brilliance. Every game last season where we fell behind early (I.e. Houston and green bay) we had to go spread and surprise we put points on the board and sent vernon davis to the pro bowl.

    z9ers pretty much summed it up. We get a lot of raw talent that is not developed up to fine tune because of our lack of coaching and putting their strengths to use in the right spots. You go a whole game without getting the ball to VD. I dont think VD has lived up to his potential, but on another club he would be tearing it up. Bottom line, this team does not deserve to be in the play-offs the way they have under performed. What bothers me more, is, they wont look to be any better in years to come with the game plans they are putting out there.

    This is not fantasy football, time to bring in the professionals. Alex Smith is better than anything the 9ers can bring in next year. He was treated like a tackling dummy for the umpteenth time, no need to “look at the film.” The O line is a mess, where’s the back-ups, stop treating the season like a long training camp. Please, NO PLAYOFFS, who will pay premium price to sit in the stands and watch the 9ers get plummeled by a much better team again? New coach, GM, Scout Director or empty seats in 2011.

    amen z9ers.

    Where’s the hate for Brooks dropping the easiest freaking interception I’ve ever seen? How about Davis who might as well just sack Alex all by himself and save the defense the trouble of having to do it themselves? How about a costly 7 point face mask? How about a costly 3 point decision to go for it on 4th and 1 – killing any kind of momentum we gained by driving the field and putting points on the board? How about Clements… ok you got beat – really bad – but how about making the freaking tackle now? I think he actually held his hand as they strolled together over the goal line.

    How about the fact that Vernon can’t seem to get any separation even though everyone keeps telling me how fast he is… and what the hell is Crabtree doing? If these guys were so open, I guarantee the crew in the booth would have teleprompter-ed it up for us because kicking Alex in the nuts is everyone’s favorite freakin’ past time these days. Don’t like your team, blame it on Alex. Don’t like your job, blame it on Alex. You’re own wife doesn’t like you, it’s Alex’s fault, your dog crapped in your shoe, it was Alex’s turn to watch him.

    Should we cut him too? How about Frank Gore, what’s Frank’s record – cut him! And Justin Smith – I don’t think his records any better than Alex’s come to think of it. Patrick Willi’s record is pretty good though… oh wait… no it’s not, it’s EXACTLY THE SAME record…. Off with his head!

    Unfortunately the QB take the heat and the glory depending on the outcome. Some deserve it, some dont. The problems this team has go way beyond one player. We have no OC at this point. No adjustments are ever made and consequently we get schooled by halftime. I have never coached a pro team, but come on..If someone is kicking your door down, you either drill him or run out another exit..dont just stand there and take a beating…

    Jed needs to wake up, we have talent on the field, but NO TALENT in the coaching staff. We need to get off Alex’s back, Vernon’s back, Crabtree’s back and put it where it belongs. Just like Gruden and the announcers where saying, if you have a Vernon Davis, how can you not design plays to GET him the ball? All the OC says each week is “Well, they are taking Vernon away this year down the middle” Come on Man! You move him around, design plays etc. This staff has GOT TO GO! Bring in Bill Cowher or someone with some coaching experience who has contacts and can put together a good staff.

    @Les, Really, did Alex take the Glory from last week? He was up for some BS meaningless award but his fans were still booing him after the game. Everyone on this blog was saying his good game was due to YAC not on his arm or good play. A Smith could cure cancer this week, and the people of San Fran would still despise him. I don’t know how he continues to keep putting in the effort for such ungratefull fans. I’d extend the two fingered salute and tell them all to S my D! But, as I’ve said before, he’s a far better man than me.

    Temper..Some fans including myself, do expect more from a QB that has been here for SIX (6) years and a #1 pick. He certainly has not performed like Bradford has this year as a Rookie for the Rams. Thats what has so many Niner fans upset. Like I said, there is a lot of blame to go around on this roster.

    A list of the major deficiencies on this team that needs to change, with #1 being the worst problem that needs to be changed promptly.

    1. Head Coach
    2. Quarterback
    3. Offensive Coordinator
    4. Secondary
    5. Right Tackle – Anthony Davis (ever notice that every time our QBs are pressured, it’s coming from the right side)

    Immediate solutions to above deficiencies that need to happen this offseason that will allow our SF 3-and-Outers, er 49ers, to reach the Super Bowl next year. Yes, NEXT YEAR.

    1. Jon Gruden or Bill Cowher
    2. Peyton Manning
    3. Tom Rathman or Steve Young
    4. Champ Bailey and Antonio Cromartie will both be free agents, as will safety Roy Williams, who was a Pro Bowler with Dallas. Our secondary needs steady veterans who know how to play the game the right way.
    5. I’ll take Harris Barton right now. Just kidding. Joe Staley will be back next year, and I’ll take Alex Boone over Davis any day of the week.

    Alex Smith putting in the effort each week LMAO big time, you act like this Idiot is Mc Nabb or some thing. Mc Nabb got booded by his fans when he was drafted and what he got accomplished that’s effort while people are booing you.All of these stupid wishful changes are so unrealistic I want to puuck. You start with your leader which is the QB. To ever think Alex Smith will take this team or any other team any where is just @$#%$^$^& stupid.Start with Alex and get him off the team today Far Far Away.The fans are tired of him we don’t care about his feelings just simply get rid of him, even if he wins the 2 next week games so what Troy has the same chance, Troy would have beat Seattle Alex is nothing special let him go Now. We might still lose when he leaves so what still let go of Alex. There is no reason to Keep him. Maybe a empty stadium will send the message.Sned Alex Away to the AFC side far away.

    As far as the 49ers acquiring Jon Gruden for next year, that plan is throwed out the window. Gruden is coaching the Miami Hurricanes next year. Bill Cowher would be a nice suggestion, but he’s not interested in coaching the 49ers. Cowher would prefer to coach either the Giants or the Texans. When the 49ers had a decent coach in Steve Mariucci they gave him the boot! Mariucci had a winning record as head coach of the 49ers and appeared in the playoffs 4 times and a Conference Championship game in his 5 year coaching career with the 49ers. Ever since Edward DeBartolo Jr. gave up his rights to his sister in 2000, we’ve been going down hill! The York’s should sale the 49ers to a owner who want to reinnovate this franchise back to their winning ways. They’re on a power trip thats hurting the legacy of the 49ers. Thats why we can’t hire good coaches and players to help bring life back into the 49ers. This is the outcome you get when people are born or married into money! I hope Brian Billick would be interested in coaching the 49ers because he’s well rounded in the X’s and O’s, and he is one of the best personnel coaches in the business with his general manager experience.

    Niner Fans…To be honest with you, the last true Super Bowl contender we had was in 1998 (The year we were 12-4 and beat GB in the playoffs with The Catch II and barely lost 18-20 to eventual NFC Champ Atlanta) when we had Steve Young, Jerry Rice, Terrell Owens, Garrison Hearst, Tim McDonald, Chris Doleman, Ken Norton, Bryant Young, Merton Hanks, et al. That was the last solid team we had. We’ve been pretenders ever since. Here’s a breakdown of what we’ve done since:

    1999: 4-12
    2000: 6-10
    2001: 12-4 but we really weren’t contenders as Green Bay showed us in the playoffs
    2002: 10-6 again, fake contenders – got lucky in the wild card game vs the Giants, 39-38, after NY blew a 20 point lead and Matt Bryant missed a potential game winning FG for NY. One week later, Tampa blew us out 31-6. We were pretenders.
    2003: 7-9
    2004: 2-14
    2005: 4-12
    2006: 7-9
    2007: 5-11
    2008: 7-9
    2009: 8-8
    2010: 5-9

    Thats 77- 113 in the last 12 years since Steve Young ceased to be the Niners’ starting QB. That’s a .410 win pctg, which translates to an average of 6.5 wins in a 16-game season. This franchise is PATHETIC and needs to get a clue because WE FANS FLAT OUT DO NOT DESERVE THE TORTURE especially after this organization spoils us with 5 Super Bowls from 1981-1995. That’s 5 Titles in 14 years!!!! WAKE UP SF!!!!

    Our regular season records from 2000-2010 resemble those of the St.Louis-Arizona Cardinals of the 1990s.

    Think about that San Francisco. We have become the pathetic St. Louis Cardinals!!!! The team that once had fans who would attend games week after week with paper bags over their heads.

    If we don’t turn things around next year, I might as well become a fan of the Patriots because at least New England is the team that reminds me the most of my old 49ers.

We have 3 players on our team willis, gore and davis and gore and davis are limited by our system.

    Me and justin get it that’s good Les this is not about getting to the playoffs, this is a much bigger situation called Alex Smith. If we get to the playoffs with Alex it will make things worst, because he then might get another contract next season.We have the same chances at this point with Troy, so if Alex gets the nod to do this we go through all this crap again next season and next and next, Alex Needs to move on. When Alex leaves we move to the next person or people but Alex needs the first foot out the door. The stadium at the sticks we keep looking empty till Alex is gone, this I is a fact. We will have a empty playoff game at home with Alex at the Helm.

    If I had to choose between making the Playoffs or seeing Alex move out..I would buy the bus ticket for Alex. The Playoffs with Alex would be a sorry display anyway. I agree, let Alex and Sing and the rest of the staff (except Rathman) go. I notice that most of the competitive Head Coaches call their own plays from the sidelines. They have the plays on a script right in front of them. NOT Sing. I dont think he knows enough about Offense to call from the sidelines. Cower has let it be known that he wants to get back to Coaching but he has listed three teams he would like to coach and that did not include the Niners. I think Gruden would be an improvement but he appears to be happy doing what he is doing.

    D. Mike here, D49er fan. Listen the niners will make the play offs, though by default. What needs to happen now isget rid of Carr. There are 5 teams playing their 3rd string QB, we could get something for him, unbelieveable. If its too late, stick him on the practice squad and ship him next year. Anyway get Nate Davis on the roster. Everyone else had their chance. If they start him in the playoffs no one will have film, no one will be able to defense him. That’s why Troy looked a lot better his first couple of games. No one knew what to do against him. the playoffs are only a couple of games long, there isn’t time to figure him out. And believe me, he can play.
