    Hey Ted, Your broadcasts have really inspired me and I’m very much interested in becoming a sportscaster. What does it take to brake into this business?

    Ted, RB Ian Johnson , is a smart move, Should the niners put him on the roster instead of the practaice squad, so he can sub in between downs for Frank?

    do the 49ers have a chance of picking up a QB before week 6?

    how bad does Alex Smith have to do …so the Niners don’t re-sign him to a 5 year deal.

    Teddy, Whats up Scott!?
    We won last sunday but the victory was because of special teams and defense. We converted one of twelve attempts on third down! We ran on six or seven of those attempts, some on third and four. Gore was stuffed as was Hunter. Our blocking asignments were missed across the board. I thought we were built to run the ball!! Dallas will put up points and we need to be able to fix this problem. If Frank runs for over 100 yards and we convert 50 to 60 percent of our third downs we can win this game! Alex and Coach Harbaugh need to open up this offense!!!Ted you know this team what type of offensive scheme do you think will be the most effective against Dallas???Consider thier injuries at the corner position with safetys filling in do you see any mis matches??Now is the time to see the West Coast offense SHINE!!!

    Here is something for Ted to comment on. I was just watching ESPN talking heads commenting on all of this weekends games and …UNBELIEVABLE!! When they came to the 49er-Cowboy game, they spent the entire time talking about Romo and the Cowboys and said NOTHING about the 49ers!!! Nor did they even mention the 49ers for the rest of the broadcast! Time to MAKE them pay attention. Time for the 49ers to wallop those Cowboys into cow-flop.

    Do we even have anyone to cover that 6’5″ Bryant in our secondary?? He had Cromarty and Revis look silly until Romo threw his pick. The guy doesn’t just catch the ball, he goes and gets it and our corners and secondary are our weakest link in the defense. I also worry about Jason Witten. I hope Coach Vic fires up and lets loose with some different blitz packages, and our D-line comes to play, they are beasts and awesome when they want to be and we will need them to keep pressure on Romo all game long, if not Bryant and Witten could have a field day in our secondary.

    The only thing I didn’t care for in the Seattle game was being TO conservative in the run game. I understand Harbough wants to get the ground game going and to protect the ball, but calling the same “dive” plays over and over into Seattle’s beef of a D line, with most of the time 8 in the box wasn’t working to well. They did run a nice misdirection in the 1st qrt that looked good, but never went back to it. I don’t understand that, it is not your job to stop your offense, it’s the defense’s job and keep running the play until they prove they can stop it. They were proving they could stop the inside running attack, specifically the dive between guard and center, so why keep beating your head against a brick wall? I don’t get that. If you want to play conservative and run the ball, that’s ok with me, but change it up, run the misdirection some more, run the sweep that looks good with the pulling guard. Football is a lot like boxing, you only have a “right” and a “left”, so you throw the “left” when they are thinking “right”, doesn’t have to be fancy, just change it up a bit.

    On the Goal line, again, not much room, only ten yards, not hard to cover and everyone in the state of California knew Frank was going to get the ball on a dive, the D line had proven all game long they could plug it up, why in the world do you run the dive three times in a row?? Even if you don’t score, at least try a misdirection, a sweep, Davis and Edwards are playmakers to, give them a shot on a play action. If someone proves they are stopping a play, no matter how much you wish you could, you can not “wish” it to work, they have 11 guys to and if they make their mind up to center on Frank and the dive play, well, they will stop it, they are professionals as well. You must change it up even in a conservative called game, using easy plays, just change em’ up.

    I think they are on the right track and Harbough and company will learn as they go what works for them in the NFL. With the lock out, we were already behind the 8 ball, but I think giving him a year, the niners could be something again. The one thing that gives me hope is, even if we lose an O-coordinator, it is still Harbough’s system, so the players won’t have to learn a new system each year, the new O- coordinator will be the one that must adjust and learn the system Harbough and the players already know. Just like the Patriots, they have gone through coaches, but it’s Bill’s system, so no matter who they bring in, the team doesn’t have to learn a new system, the O-coordinator learns to use Bill’s system. I hope we can keep Harbough and give him a chance.

    P.S. During the coaches conferences with the media, who makes up the questions? I wish they would take questions from the fans instead because the media present doesn’t ask anything intelligent, they don’t ask what the fans want to know about “Why call a dive 3 times in a row?” We understand he feels they were attacking, duh , but can you ask why they didn’t change up the conservative calls with different run plays like misdirections or sweeps? Those look good and we use them once or twice a game, then go back to a play that Seattle clearly could stop. I just wish the media would ask better questions I guess.

    ESPN is for rich kids and rich jocks. I wouldnt want them talking about the 49ers it would be a shame if they did. The only thing that punches me in the guts is alex shoot me smith

    Anthony Davis came to camp 80 pounds overweight, not knowing the playbook. He consistently misses tackles, leaving his quarterback unprotected. (And Smith takes flak for not making plays. Sheesh.)

    Tackle Alex Boone came to camp ready to play, and whenever he’s in he proves he can do the job.

    So why is Davis still in, and Boone not being utilized?

    is carson palmer in cinci gonna be traded? If so ,is frisco on that list?& if not why????????

    Are the 9ers set with their offensive line? Or, do you forsee the 9ers making any changes there barring any injury? As long as they stay healthy, I think they “potentially” have as good an offensive line as at most any time in the franchise. Who do you think is the weakest link currently on the offensive line and do you think the player can improve or will eventually be replaced?

    Hey Ted,

    Do you think Ted Ginn will be more integrated in the 49ers offense as a wide out, given he had a magnificent special teams game last week?

    Thank you,

    Any word on Andrew Luck?

    Your picture on this blog looks like a cross between Peter Fonda and Clint Eastwood. Given the choice would you star in “Easy Rider” or “The Good The Bad and The Ugly”???

    Watched last weeks’s game from the Silver Dollar Bar in Jackson, WY. Last weeks game proved that teams win games. Whether subtlely or big time like Ted Ginn’s thrilling performance everybody stepped up to the plate. As much as we all love little Frankie up here, he can’t carry the offense, neither can anyone else. I hope for a repeat this week. Keep improving guys.

    Hi Teddy, do you think we will see more of Braylon Edwards and Vernon Davis this week in the redzone?

    First of all, CONGRATULATION to you, the players, and the 49ers staff. I am a truly 49ers fan forever!!! Today game will be very challenge to win, but I believe the 49ers will win this one. Keep in mind that everybody need to push the same button (Defense, Offense, and Special Team). Keep Romo under pressure, and 49ers will win. My prediction: 49ers 27 –Dallas 16. Good Luck!

    Coach Harbaugh cost us the game when he kept the 3 points from Akers on the board. The 49ers would have had the ball on either the 23 or 28 with a 1st down. They score a touchdown there they win!! Hey coach you’re in the NFL not the NCAA!!!

    Regarding the Niners’ offense —

    Yes, opponents are stacking the box against the run, but the fact remains that after two games Frank Gore is averaging 2.5 yards per carry and 53 yards per game. That just won’t get it done. And, contrary to propaganda, he IS slower that he has been in past years. Further, Norris seems to miss the vast majority of his blocking opportunities. Why not let Miller play and learn? He couldn’t possibly be worse than Norris. And, why not play Dixon and Hunter more? They can’t be substantially worse than Gore so far this season?

    It sucks to be right on two points this offseason. I pushed for Andy Dalton in the draft and I pushed to trade Gore. Neither happened and it looks like in subsequent weeks, both those personnel decisions are going to hurt the 49ers. I am curious if it’s time to start Hunter now? I know Ginn had a great return against seattle, but Hunter looked good in his return against Dallas. Is there a chance that we let Hunter take over on returns, mold Ginn into the offense with the continued absense of Crabtree and that we start Hunter this week?

    i would like someone to address the the poor call made by head coach jim harbaugh with just over 11 minutes to go by opting to take the FG…..why not kill more time off the clock and then kick the FG? IM LOSING MY MIND OVER THIS…. the nfl network, espn , nobody has even talked about this….

  32. By joe on Sep 19, 2011 | Reply

    It is time for a change at running back. it is not the O line that needs fix, its Gore. For the last 3 years i have seen Gore get the ball and stop at line. no yards gain or lost of yard. Too small, does not cut to open lane or ajust to bad situation. Please change before this season go to waste.

  33. By Joseph on Sep 19, 2011 | Reply

    Do you think it was a wise decision for Harbaugh to keep the field instead of going for more, since it was a first down? I feel that could have kept the momentum going.

  34. By robert on Sep 19, 2011 | Reply

    My question is this why didn’t Harbough take off the 3 point’s off the board an take the first down at the 35 on that personal foul on the cowboy’s they could have been up two touchdown’s instead of being up by 10 they could have won the game what’s your thaught on this I felt it was tanked.

  35. By A. Rod. on Sep 19, 2011 | Reply

    I have 2 quetstions.

    first, how many times did we (49ers) gave the ball to V. Davis, isn’t he a BEAST., don’t get me wrong i love the way that he plays.

    And Was B. Edwards (WR) injured…
