Game Blog: 49ers vs. Cowboys

Posted by Scott Kegley on September 18, 2011 – 11:53 AM

The 49ers will look to improve to 2-0 against their old rivals, the Dallas Cowboys.

Injuries could play a large role for both teams today. Dashon Goldson and Michael Crabtree are both listed as questionable for the 49ers. For the Cowboys, cornerbacks Terence Newman and Orlando Scandrick are out and wide receiver Dez Bryanyt is questionable.

Inactives: 49ers – QB Scott Tolzien, WR Michael Crabtree, S Dashon Goldson, G Daniel Kilgore, G Michael Person, DT Ian Williams, DT Demarcus Dobbs

Cowboys – QB Stephen McGee, CB Orlando Scandrick, CB Terence Newman, G Bill Nagy, G David Arkin, WR Dez Bryant, DE Clifton Geathers

Stay tuned for updates throughout the game.

FIRST QUARTER:

The 49ers won the toss and elected to defer to the second half. After the kickoff went for a touchback, Tony Romo nearly connected with Miles Austin deep down the right sideline. The pass was a little too long and Donte Whitner came with the hit to force the incompletion. On 3rd and long, Romo was hit as he threw, but managed to throw a strike to tight end Jason Witten. The Cowboys converted on their first two third downs of the drive. Then, on 2nd and 15 Romo hit Tashard Choice (in for Felix Jones after an injury) for a gain of 18 on a screen to the right side. Dallas drove all the way down to the 49ers 3-yard line, but Tony Romo’s 3rd down pass was too long for Audtin. Dan Bailey couldn’t get Dallas on the board either, missing a 21-yard field goal.

After struggling on third down last week, the 49ers started strong. On third and 10, Alex Smith calmly stepped up and delivered a strike to Braylon Edward to pick up 21. However, they weren’t able to pick up their next 3rd and two, as Alex Smith tried to hit Delanie Walker, but he stepped out of bounds.

The defense held tough on the next drive, forcing a three and out. On 3rd down, Romo look for Austin who had slipped and Brown nearly came away with the interception.

After the punt, the 49ers started their next drive from their own 32.

SECOND QUARTER:

The 49ers drive could have stalled after Spencer brought down Alex Smith for a loss of 9. On 3rd and 10, Dallas sent the house on the blitz. The 49ers picked it up well and Smith hit Ginn for a gain of 14. Alex Smith turned what could have been a disaster into a huge play. After mishandling the snap, Smith picked it up, rolled out of the pocket and nearly hit Gore for a TD. Dallas was flagged for pass interference and the ball was placed at the 1. Two plays later, Gore punched it in for the score.

49ers 7 – Cowboys 0

The 49ersdefense forced another three and out as Carlos Rogers blitzed on third down and hit Romo as he threw.

The 49ers improved to 5 of 6 on third down conversions after Smith hit Joshua Morgan on the left sideline to keep the chains moving. Smith got the 49ers in the end zone once again with a great through on a fade route to Kyle Williams. Williams made a great catch on the play as well, getting both feet in bounds.

49ers 14 – Cowboys 0

The 49ers defense responded nicely with a quick three and out to give the ball back to the offense.

Jason Hatcher helped stop the 49ers next drive, sacking Smith on second down for a loss of 9. Lee launched a 63-yard punt that was well covered. Dallas will start their drive at the 29.

The 49ers defense looked like had stopped the Cowboys, but after a third down pass breakup, Ahmad Brooks was flagged for offsides. On the next play, Romo hit Austin on a quick slant. Brock had slipped on the play, giving Austin an easy path to the end zone.

49ers 14 – Cowboys 7

With no timeouts remaining, the 49ers were cautious on the next drive and after one first down, they ended up letting the clock run out on the half.

Standout Stat: The 49ers have done very well against the run, holding Dallas to just 7 yards on the ground.

Highlight Reel: The throw by Alex Smith was great, bJonut the catch by Kyle Williams may have been better as the two connected for the 49ers second touchdown of the game.

Put it in Perspective: The 49ers defense looked like they were going to get off the field, but the offside penalty by Brooks proved very costly. Austin’s touchdown was the only highlight for Dallas in the first half. The 49ers will get the ball to start the second half, with an opportunity to rebuild their two-score lead. They’ve been effective against the run and the offense has performed well on third down.

THIRD QUARTER:

Not the start to the second half that the 49ers were looking for as the offense went three and out. C.J. Spillman had great coverage on the punt, dropping Harris for a three yard loss.

Jon Kitna came in at quarterback for Tony Romo who was being evaluated for a rib injury. Kitna hit his first two passes, the first to Witten and the second a big gain to Kevin Ogletree. Oglstree was called for an offensive facemask as he tried to stiff arm Brown. Donte Whitner’s first pick as a Niner ended the Dallas drive. Whitner took a knee in the end zone for a touchback.

Smith and the 49ers offense would give it right back to Dallas as Smith threw it right to Cowboys corner Alan Ball on third down. It looked like the pass was intended for Vernon Davis.

The turnover proved costly as Kitna hit Austin for another touchdown. The 49ers looked to have the play well covered, but the pass was perfect.

49ers 14 – Cowboys 14

The 49ers responded with a good kickoff return. The ball bounced off of Tukuafu’s had and was picked up by Kendall Hunter, who found some space wide left and crossed midfield. That would be as far as the 49ers would get. Ware beat Staley on first down and sacked Smith. Lee’s punt was fair caught at the 9-yard line.

The defense made a huge play as Tramaine Brock picked off Kitna’s pass and added a nice return back to the Dallas 29. On the very next play, Delanie Walker was matched up with a linebacker and Smith hit him in stride for a 29-yard score.

49ers 21 – Cowboys 14

Standout Stat: Despite the interception, Smith still has a quarterback rating over 100.

Highlight Reel: What a play call by Jim Harbaugh. He got the matchup he wanted and Smith threw a perfect ball to Walker for the easy score.

Put it in Perspective: There were several momentum shifts in the quarter. Dallas tied it up and the 49ers looked slow to respond. The defense gave the 49ers great field position after Brock’s interception and the offense took full advantage. With Tony Romo returning for Dallas, it’s certainly anyone’s game. Even a field goal will be a huge benefit to the 49ers as they’ll look to make it a two-score game.

FOURTH QUARTER:

The 49ers got into Dallas territory and put Akers in position for a 55-yard field goal. The kick was good, but there was a penalty against Dallas. Harbaugh elected to take the points and take the penalty on the kickoff.

49ers 24 – Cowboys 14

The Cowboys started at their own 20 and quickly marched into 49ers territory. On 4th down, Austin caught his third TD pass of the game to cut the lead to 24-21.

49ers 24 – Cowboys 21

That’s it for the blog…have to run down  to the field to get ready for postgame. Stay tuned.

This loss goes to how many times Alex did not get rid of the ball and the line who let him get sacked. Hey Gore…you sucked today too.

    Great game by the 9ers we were supposed to get blown out by one of the so called power house teams in the NFL and we fight them all the way into overtime. Tough loss but im a happy 9er fane cause of the progress I see with my favorite team! I just dont like the call when we had the chance to keep the ball and take more time off the clock rather then kick off from the 50. Stay up true 9er fans we got this we still lead the NFC West at 1 and 1. We got Cinnci next week a game we should dominate. Hope we have our #1 receivers back for the game.

    Taking the field goal instead of penalty was gutless. It showed coach has no faith in his offense. Even if they ran gore 3 times and kicked another field goal they could have ran time off clock so that Dallas would’nt have had all the fuc…. time in the world to run last drive and send it to overtime. THANKS coach. You deserve a loss but the team and fans don’t.

    Smith has got to GO! Niners need a QB that will go after the defence, not be ultra conservative. 6 sacks is ugly. Give Kapernick a chance. What have we got to lose?

    Looking back, it was the bonehead mistake on third and long of lining up in the neutral zone that ultimately cost us the game. The penalty gave Dallas new life and lead to a TD.

    A coach who will not go for it on 4th and 1 in a critical situation on homefield should not be coaching in the NFL. No guts, no glory! Alex Smith once again fails to perform. He was outperformed by a QB with a fractured rib. The cowbays fans were alot louder than the 49ers fan. We definately need a star QB and a coach who needs to step it up by not crying on the sidelines over a penalty and making a play decision. Jesus… come on!

  106. By furvuscorvus on Sep 18, 2011 | Reply

    i have seen the way you play against the cowboys you do like Walsh. this was a mistake. the coach does not have what it takes and this game proves it. I know that there has been a lot of work done on the cowboys and so I know this was an important game for us to show what we can do. and we have shown that we will not make it again. someone kick the coach in the but and get this coach aggressive again. and someone tell the man in the center to stop only blocking to the right. this offensive line needs reworking and stop putting your faith in smith and try someone else. he is not diversive enough to not use the same plays over and over again.

    Seriously great calls Harbaugh….NOT….hmm revisiting flashes of Singletary times. What happened to “I am not afraid to make the hard calls”……Lets make it a two score game with 11 minutes left especially after the Cowboys were eating us alive in the second half. That makes a lot of sense. First down on the 20 with 7 minutes to go you take the first down. You can even play scared and hand the ball off three straight times to run at least 3-4 minutes off the clock then kick the field goal to make it a two possession game which would have put us up by ten with about 6 minutes left in the game. Harbaugh I think the NFL stress level is to much for you to handle. Maybe you should go back to the college level were you have can make easier calls. Seriously the 49ers should be called all talk and no action once they move to Santa Clara. These decisions are a disgrace to 49er legends.

    Is it just me or do we have the most predictable offense ever? I sat here the whole game and called every play. Also I would luv to see the stat of how many times we ran the ball for 2 yards on 1st down. I thought Harbaugh’s offense was supposed to be dynamic and innovative, not boring, conservative, & predictable. I mean seriously if you don’t trust A. Smith why is he even out there? I understand “best chance to win” bla bla bla. But we all know we aint a superbowl contender and he isn’t the “quarterback of the future”. Now I’ll just wait to watch the excuse ridden but very “positive” press conference. SWEET just 1 more decade of boring crappy football. Getting hard to be enthusiastic, that’s why there are more Cowboys fans at the game today than niners.

    jay, i agree with you that this was not all alex smiths fault, but if he wants to be a winning quarter back and get the respect, he needs to take a drive on his shoulders , just once!!! when it counts, even if it means he has to use his legs, and that will make the difference in him being a leader or a quarter back that even his own coach with 1.42 seconds left before the half just let the clock run down because he didnt have confidence in him.

    Harbaughs decision not to take the 15 years and a first down and leave the 3 points on the board was the killer. Ball was on the 37 when Akers made a 55 yd field goal and taking the 15 yard penalty meant that if 49ers didnt gain another yard, he would just have had to make a 40 yard kick. However, ball would have been on the 25 and if 49ers score a touchdown and take more time off the clock, they are ahead by 14 and Cowboys can’t come back. Real bonehead decision in my opinion. However, the defensive backs didnt look too good. Romo threw for 345 yards with broken rib.

    well i wanted to see how we would play against a good team and overall I would say that we played pretty good. I think we need to improve our running game learn to close out games against good teams. We also need to get healthy at wr quickly. Ginn and Morgan played well but we need the other guys to take coverage off of vernon. I cant believe that people are bashing alex today. Not a standout game but he was solid. Seven yrs in sf go get a new team like the patriots or packers so you can support those star qbs. Every time you post you just confirm that you dont know anything about football giving up over 400yrds is not smiths fault. Just a note QB IS ON OFFENSE and DB IS ON DEFENSE, i know it can be confusing. Oh yea I dont think Alex needs to apologize but you do for calling yourself a fan learn the game. Oh who ever said look at newton and bradford throwing for all these yards well combine they r 0-3 soon to be 0-4. all of you people who bash alex and our coach go get a new team your dead weight. cant wait till next wk. need to go on the road and beat the bungals and get the ball rolling before we go to philly.

    Once again we see the stat of another L because Frank Gore couldn’t put up over 100 yards. We shouldn’t have to rely on him. We have the tools to get it done on offense, Alex is doing well but that O-line killed us today. And we still have a weak secondary. All these new acquisitions and we still look like last year, losing games by 3 points or less because the secondary can’t keep up at the end of the game. Great, our front 7 can stop every run game in the league but we need to start seeing stronger performances from the secondary. I can handle watching the ’9ers lose but not to Dallas! :( Oh well, keep working guys! I look forward to eventually seeing the glory days again! Go Niners!

    I’m worried we are a one half team. we play great for one of the halfs and then fold. This has been going on for 4 years in close games. Sometimes it is the offense, which has to do with the play calling and sometimes the defense. We didn’t stop Romo in the second half when it counted 3 times. What happens in the locker room at half?

    Gore has averaged 2.5 yars per carry this year. And for this we signed him to a new big money contract. In preseason, I though Oman looked better than Gore and he is on the practice squad. And what about all the money we are paying to Crabtree? Seems like he is either hurt or holding out most of the time. I love the Niners and will try to be optimistic but today was a heartbreaker.

    Crabtree could be the missing link to this team, but so far he is just “missing”. Hunter has more speed to run to the outside; why are we only using Gore up the middle and getting nothing for it.

    Gore is averaging 2.5 yards a carry because Alex doesn’t scare anyone , he hasn’t picked apart a bad secondary yet.We see a lot of 8-9 man fronts , we will until Alex puts fear in Def’s and exploits them for just trying to stop the run , and I think he will eventually.

    GARY, Gore is running hard and will have his good games. The difference is that we have STRONG BACK-UPS now to allow him to rest and be strong throughout the season. CRABTREE has recently returned from an extended injury. He’s COMPETITIVE, though, and he realizes that he has to work hard to recover his starting position, so I expect him to become more relevant during the next weeks.

    “Smith waqs sacked 6 times and hit 9 times”, yet still managed a 99.1 PR with 2 tds and an int that looked like a mis-com or a really bad route ran by VD. IMHO, heres how our game went. Once again our O-line got pummeled by a pretty good defense. Reason for Frank’s 2.6 ypc? An O-line that can’t penetrate and create holes followed by a slow full back who doesn’t pancake lb’s and db’s but just nudges them. Yet you want a running back like Frank Gore who is a 1 cut slash runner with great vision and patience for holes to be opened. Well now, what happens when vision and patience meets no holes? Lets see frank is about 5’9 so the only yards he gets is when he falls down stretching out (5’9 = about 2 yds). IMHO, there were 3 key moments in which dictated our loss and 1 moment that made me realize a troll and moron have mated.
    1. Ahmad Brooks called for N.I. that lead to td.
    2. Jim H’s call to accept 3pt instead of 15 yd penalty, faith in defense (arguable)
    3. DB’s blown coverages (to say a few)
    -Bad timing on trying to intercept ball to M.A. catch at endzone by DB
    -Falling down only to get burned, not just the cb in man cov, but also the
    safety who wasn’t aware that the cb fell and that it was his job to cover
    the top during OT.
    4. Just so you know who these idiots are,”Ninerman”, “seven years in s.f.”,
    bunch of idiots who comes onto this website and say they are 49er fans
    yet don’t have a clue as to how football is played only to back up their
    creditential by saying its the QB’s fault that the 49ers got burned 3 times by
    Miles Austin and gave 100 yards to Jason Witten. But as we all know, they
    only exist to prove idiots in this world and only exist to prove smart and
    educated people in this world. So please don’t rip them as much, instead

    Hey JR not to worry. I’m think about it and looking at some of the asinine statements that have been made about Alex, so try and look at it like this—you have some FOOL pointing out the obvious like us going to Philly one of the 2 best teams supposedly in the NFL not the NFC but the NFL who is stacked. We go on the road not next week but in 2 weeks and he’s pointing out how tough it will be then and how he hopes Alex fails. Now you are going to sit there and tell me he’s a real fan getting behind his team? NOT A CHANCE. I mean common man you don’t do those things if you understand team work and game.
    Yeah I said that. I played college and went to the NFL so sit on that, not you JR, you know the game I can tell. And I’d bet that more than half of these little crying no football knowing folks that like to rip Alex sat the BENCH as a junior on their JV team, what do you bet. I’m being serious; they know it inside themselves to.
    It’s time to circle the wagons and support your team. So you negative ladies can talk smack all you want but I won’t address it any further, nor will I reply again in a negative manner but sometimes, you just need to remove the kids and take over and set the record straight as I have had to do here, PERIOD.
    I whole heartedly support the Niners, the Coaches, the players and I understand the portion of the game and team building of how tough it is to grow and build a great team. We finally have a true system and an excellent QB with weapons if they get healthy and I hope Alex resigns for 2-3 more yrs, seriously. Let him throw 10 picks at Philly I’d still have him on my team, he’s a winner and I’ve been around plenty of them.
    Call me out or do what you want but the truth hurts for some of you because it points out the GLARING misconceptions of your lack of football knowledge, but that ok that’s how you learn and I know some of you needed this straight talk. And I’m done talking back and forth with some of you folks, you are just not worthy of a discussion because you really are clueless.
    I mean common MAN, going on the road to Philly in 2 weeks is going to be tough, are you really that IGNORANT. Did you come up with that all by yourself, really?
    Go Niners.

    seven years in S.F., ninerloser, realfaned, Coso, ohio ninerfan, mike sandoval, why ask why, AlexSmithHATER, AND OTHER ALEX HATERS NEED TO GO FIND ANOTHER TEAM TO CRY ABOUT, THERE IS A VERY SMALL PERCENTAGE OF YOU THAT BLAME ALEX FOR ALL OUR LOSSES IN THE PAST, YOU NEED TO EVALUATE THE TEAM AS A WHOLE. THE BEST QB’S IN THE NFL WOULD BE RUNNING FOR THEIR LIVES ALSO IF YOU DON’T HAVE A STRONG 0-LINE. DIDN’T YOU SEE THE SIZE DIFFERENCE IN YESTERDAYS GAME, THOSE DALLAS COWGIRLS WERE HUGE. YES WE SHOULD HAVE WON THAT GAME, OUR DEFENSE GAVE UP. I THINK ALEX PLAYED GREAT, HE WAS VERY ACCURATE, HE KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING. I AGREE, THIS LOSS SUC_S BUT WE HAVE TO MOVE FOREWORD, LEARN FROM OUR MISTAKES, AND JUST GET BETTER AS A TEAM. I ALSO THINK HARBOUGH MADE A BAD CALL WHEN HE TOOK THE 3 POINTS IN STEAD OF A FIRST DOWN, WE COULD HAVE MADE A TOUCHDOWN OR MADE ANOTHER FIELD GOAL. THIS WAS A TOUGH PILL TO SWALLOW BECAUSE I CAN’T STAND DALLAS, BUT WE MUST GO FORTH AS TRUE NINER FAITHFUL AND CONTINUE TO SUPPORT OUR GROWING TEAM. IN TIME OUR TEAM WILL BE WHERE THEIR SUPPOSE TO BE, A WINNING FRANCHISE.

    GO 49ERS, LET’S WIN THE REST>>>>>>>

    Oh and one last thing. I can appreciate the ones that don’t support the team and the coaches that’s your decision that’s totally your view and you have that right for sure.

    I just merely am pointing out the fact that you don’t KNOW FOTTBALL, that’s all that is.

    Go NINEEEEEERS!

    Yeah, just like before the season began I knew there was a BIG question mark on the defensive secondary. It certainly showed up later in the game. Alex did real well for 3 quarters, but could not win the game for them in the 4th quarter or overtime. Thought Harbaugh should have taken the first down. I think this was a team loss including coach!! Harbaugh does not have the faith in Alex that we need in order to win consistently. It is a shame because we could all taste it!! You guys that are making Alex god in this game, he did what he always does. Performs very well for a while, BUT can’t get the job done. I am disappointed in the defense though!!

    Oh, I don’t hope Alex will fail, or wishes he fails, or anything of the sort. I wish to he!! he would do well, but I have been around the game too long not to recognize a QB that won’t take us to the promised land…But, boy, I wish I was wrong. I will keep rooting until we see one way or another!!! It will be soon!!

    This game was a heartbreaking loss. Alex you did great!!! Win or Lose That is not on you. I will say that the one thing that pissed me off the most was that there were more Cowboys fans in the stands than Niners fans. So much for a red out. I get the fact that we have had horrible records for the past decade, but for crying out loud this was the Cowboys!!!!!! If you want to bash on the team find a new one. Win or Lose the NINERS are my only team. If you want to talk trash go somewhere else. LETS GO NINERS!!!! HELLUVA GAME now put the pieces together and lets see them playoffs

    STOP LIVING IN THE PAST HERMIE, ALEX IS GROWING AND LEARNING FROM A NEW COACHING SYSTEM, THE D-LINE AND THE 0-LINE DID NOT PLAY GOOD TODAY, THY BEAT US BY A STUPID FIELD GOAL, WE HAD THE GAME, YOU AND THE REST OF THE ALEX HATERS DON’T KNOW A THING ABOUT FOOTBALL. ALL YOUR EYES ARE FOCUSED ON ALEX TO SEE WHAT HE DOES WRONG AND YOU NEVER LOOK AT THE WHOLE TEAM, THIS IS A TEAM GAME AND WE DON’T LOOK AT ALEX AS A GOD, THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND THAT IS CHRIST JESUS MY LORD AND SAVIOR. BUT ALEX IS GOOD AND WILL GET BETTER, IN TIME “THE TEAM” AS A WHOLE WILL COME TOGETHER AS ONE. WE HAVE A WINNING TEAM. WE AS NINER FAITHFUL SHOULD BE SUPPORTING OUR WHOLE TEAM. 49ERS DID GREAT IN THIS GAME AND WILL DO EVEN BETTER IN GAMES TO COME.

    BACA my boy, please read what I write more closely….I said I was most disappointed in the DEFENSE!!! But, I will gladly get back into this talk about Alex, you guys really don’t have anything to go on but “potential” for the last 7 years!!! Don;t say he didn’t have coaches (Martz and Turner) to name two. If you want to pull me into this BACA, I will tear you apart!!

    Didn’t want you guys to forget what Harbaugh said last week!!

    You mentioned earlier too about no sacks. I was just curious on your perspective in general, not this game, but how much of that is on a quarterback, sack avoidance, in general in football?
    “Quite a bit. It’s on everybody really in the unit. It’s backs picking up in protection, it’s the line obviously, they’re the tip of the spear when it comes to picking up protections and not having sacks. That’s a credit to them first and foremost. Receivers running routes, getting open. Quarterback making cool decisions and sometimes pulling the ball down and running like in Alex’s case. Three four, five times in the ball game where he turned what could have been negative plays into positive gains and in a couple cases, big gains. Not just with his feet but rolling out, buying time, hitting [TE] Vernon [Davis]. One time down the right sideline, one time down the left sideline. Those help you win football games and don’t show up as sacks. Definitely the quarterback plays a big role in that.”

    Just saying!!

I REMEMBER BACK IN THE 70′S, 80′S AND EARLY 90′S WE HAD OUR UPS AND DOWNS, WE WOULD WIN GAMES AND WE WOULD LOSE GAMES AND WE NEVER WOULD TALK BAD ABOUT ANY OF OUR PLAYERS. IT WAS ALWAYS FULL SUPPORT OF OUR TEAM. TODAY A SMALL PERCENTAGE IS CONSTANTLY ATTACKING ALEX. WE HAVE TO BAND TOGETHER AS THE NINER FAITHFUL. HERMIE I NOW THAT YOU ARE A BELIEVER IN CHRIST AND WE HAVE OUR UP-MOST FAITH IN HIM. TRY TO HAVE THE SAME FAITH IN OUR TEAM THAT THEY WILL GET BETTER GO FORTH AND MAYBE BECOME THE NEXT SUPERBOWL CHAMPS. I DON’T KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT THE GAME LIKE MAYBE YOU DO. BUT I ENJOY WATCHING OUR TEAM PLAY. AND WHEN THEY WIN IT IS AWESOME, BUT WHEN THEY LOSE BY A FIELD GOAL WE GET UPSET, BUT WE MOVE ON TO THE NEXT GAME. LETS BAND TOGETHER AS A TRUE NINER FANS AND SUPPORT OUR TEAM WIN OR LOSE!

    Dear 49er secondary,
    It’s okay, winning isn’t everything. It’s about having fun and making friends.. Wait, no it’s not, this is the NFL what the heck were you doing back there?! You made Jesse Holley (who?) look like Michael Irving out there! Terrible coverage that cost the 49ers the game. You need to win the close ones, it’s the only way to survive in the NFL.

    Quite honestly, you probably would have heard a lot more of this in the 70′s if we would have had the technology. If you get anything out of my threads, it is support for the team, but also being as realistic as I can. I was rooting on Alex as much as anyone yesterday and I DO NOT blame the loss yesterday on him!! I worry about the defensive backfield on defense and Alex on offense…nothing more, nothing less!! The O-line absolutely needs to get better. Like all of you guys liking Alex…gotta give the O-line time to gel!! Lotta young players. That is why I believe we still have a year or so!!

    Making the playoffs is “key” this year. Need to see steady improvement over the year. I do not think we have a cupcake schedule. There are some tough games. Beating our division opponents is essential to winning our division. The players are still learning how to win at this point. They will get there!! We still have three real negatives going for us and that is new coach, new playbook, no offseason!! THAT, is tough to overcome very easily!!

    YOU NINER FANS MAKE ME LAUGH…now listen up and learn something about football, ur team and urselves…for those who blame alex smith, shows how much u know NOTHING about this game. What do u expect this guy to do when they have had 7 different off cord’s in ther last few years? head coaching changes…player personel changes…etc etc etc.. the guy is a damn good QB…when his O line stayed strong..HE PRODUCED….the niners only had 200 or so yards in a game where they scored 24 points…and lost by 3 points to a team that had 260 plus more yards…what in the hell is the matter with u people? the niners are making progress…how about the niner organization KEEPS the same people on the field, keeps the same off and def cord’s, keeps the same head coach qnd player personel for 5 years…watch the changes happen when u gel together…u niner fans want the 80′s and 90′s niners back….sorry…not gonna happen..u niner fans have chopped the heads off of EVERY SINGLE QB SINCE STEVE YOUNG…u say how great this next qb is…and four games later u chop his head off….and that has been EVERY SINGLE QB SINCE STEVE YOUNG?. you should all be ashamed of urselves and ur attitude towards ur team….u played the cowboys yesterday…u were underdogs…the team produced little yards …and still scored 24 points and looked sharp for most of the game…the cowboys are a FAR better team from start to finish…they had their whole secondary replaced because of injuries..romo with a fract rib,,,starting lead reciever out (des bryant) , starting running back hurt.., miles austin with a bad hammy…jason witten witgh a bad rib…and after giving away a game to the jets, on the east coast, they fly to the west coast and after being behind the entire game, they pulled it out…THATS WHAT A CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM DOES…u take away from the greatness of one teams talent, and blame ur niners for being losers…shame on all of u that talk crap about certain players…HOW ABOUT U BLAME THE OWNERS FOR BEING CHEAP AND NON RESPONSIVE WHEN IT COMES TO THE BUILDING OF A CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM? because ill tell u right now…crap rolls downhill..and the yorks crap is what hurts ur team…period…end of story..alex smith is a great qb…the o line needs to continue to get better..the D line needs to build stronger to put some pressure on…the secondary can build as well…and with the coaches all STAYING AND WORKING TOGEHTER FOR MORE THEN 4 MONTHS, you will see ur team grow into a playoff and superbowl team….so quit pushing blame onto these guys that are working hard to bring more W’s to the win column…go and play the game before u talk crap…or pick up a book and learn about the fundamentals of the game…becasue quite frankly, 95 percent of you talking crap , KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT THIS GAME.

    ps… i AM a die hard cowboys fan for 42 years…but i continue to admire what the niners are doing lately with their team…why?…BECAUSE I LOVE FOOTBALL AND RESPECT THOSE THAT KNOW THIS GAME AS WELL AS KNOWING THEIR OWN TEAM….which is very very few of you

    Offensively we’re predictable! Frank is still the man( 50 % of our offense) but this offense doesn’t remind me of “OLD WEST COAST” like what was said we were going back too!Seems like last few years we don’t correctly use or purposely use mismatches to our benefit! We just got out played on this game! Every player on offense and defense lost this game! Not ONE person or player is to blame…. Coach even got out coached and made errors! Let the bitterness seep in and learn from it! Move on and GO NINERS!

    WOW! First off some of you dont even belong around a PC keyboard, YOU FOOLS CANT SPELL! Secondly, Those of you fools that blame Alex Smith for “Being sacked, put kapernick in” all I can say is you sir are a flaming idiot. Changing QBs aint gonna change that. Thirdly a “Good” coach wont take points off the board to try and make more, Its a greedy coach that would do crap like that. This was a team effort and they lost as a team. There were mistakes on both sides of the ball from both teams. If anything from my point of view that they did wrong was to much emphasis on getting pressure on the “injured” Romo. They played a solid game untill then or the third quarter when Romo was put back in. Hmmmm,…Was he really injured? lol

    As a long time fan I have seen things I am not happy with and for the past 6ish years it has been the O-line. Hard for a QB to stand in the pocket and be comfortable with his job when he has the entire D-line in his face. Dang I miss the niners of old but look to future for more to cheer about. Stick with it Alex, I believe in you. GO NINERS!

I’m going to stick to my guns with one simple change that I would like to see and thats Alex Smith gone. I said this all last season and I don’t change my mind.Just because I can’t stand one player don’t mean crap, I like the rest of team and I’ll be here all season lo ng to tell everyone that I can’t stand Alex Smith.

    well lets see if we cant throw the ball for more than 200 yards we wont be able to win. and lets see yet again we have alex smith back there and nothing. yet again nothing he cant produce anything at this level. how about we have kepernick play. i would reather see him progress and do something than the same old same old nothing in the back field. just think gore one of the best in the league so if we have a qb that can move the ball that will take alot of pressure off him and idk maybe a 200 to 250 yard rushing game hum win

    AS did not lose the game OL and DB’S did 6 sacks and blown coverage play after play did DB players were supposed to be better this year but i sure don’t see it. maybe with spencer and goldson returning this week they will improve. as far as OL they suck. put snyder in at rg or rt neither one of those players deserve to be on field.

    please JH open up the offense, i don’t care if we go 1-15 but we can’t get into the nolan-sing mode. give AS a chance to throw to VD for more than 5yards. you said you would use 3 TE have the other 2 block i have been 49er fan since they came to SF used to be regular at kezar. i know it will take time to get to Bill Walsh but to get to the first nolan isn” impossible.

    Harbaugh blew that game, point blank. The team played good enough to win until that field goal. I’ve never seen a coach decline a penalty, that gives them a first down, even if it erase three points. Your goal is always a touchdown, never a field goal!!!! And you would have taken more time off the clock. Even if they didn’t make another first down, it woulde’ve made sense. If you can make a 55 yarder, surely you can make one less than 40 yards,(it was a 15 yard penalty). Also that’s telling the offense you have no confidence in them. No championship team plays like that. If you have to coach like that, then you’re saying you don’t have a good team. What a joke. Simply unbelievable!!
