Game Blog: 49ers at Bengals

Posted by Scott Kegley on September 25, 2011 – 8:46 AM

The 49ers get their first shot at a win on the road at Paul Brown Stadium, where they have not played since 2003. The 49ers hold a 10-3 advantage against the Bengals all-time.

Former Niner safety Taylor Mays is inactive for the Bengals, but WR Jerome Simpson will be active. The full list for each team is below.

49ers Inactives: QB Scott Tolzien, WR Braylon Edwards, FB Moran Norris, G Daniel Kilgore, G Mike Person, NT Ian Williams, DT Demarcus Dobbs

Bengals Inactives: WR Andrew Hawkins, S Taylor Mays, S Robert Sands, LB Dontay Moch, G Otis Hudson, TE Colin Cochart, DE Robert Geathers

We normally do a pregame podcast with Ted Robinson before each game, but Ted was busy so “Teddy Football” became “Taylor Football” as Taylor Price stepped in. Click here to listen.

FIRST QUARTER:

The 49ers improved to 4-0 on coin tosses this season and elected to defer to the second half. The Bengals quickly entered 49ers territory on their first drive thanks to three completions to Andre Caldwell. Dalton completed his fourth-straight pass to A.J. Green down to the 24-yard line. The 49ers defense did well to hold the Bengals to a field goal after they had a 1st and goal.

Bengals 3 – 49ers 0

The 49ers drive started with a play action pass to FB Bruce Miller for a gain of 12. On the next play though, Smith was sacked for a loss of five and once again, the 49ers were hurt by negative plays. The drive would stall and Lee would come in to punt. His 51-yard put the Bengals at their own 29.

The 49ers got more pressure on Andy Dalton on the second series. The Bengals picked up one first down as Dalton again found Caldwell to move the chains. Then, the 49ers were able to hurry Dalton to force the punt.

The 49ers were able to move the chains after a 5-yard run by Gore and a quick out to Joshua Morgan. Smith then found Vernon Davis open deep down the left sideline for a gain of 22. Once again though, a negative play put an end to the promising drive. A false start penalty against Joe Staley made it 3rd and 11. Smith avoided the pressure on 3rd down, but his pass skipped short of Michael Crabtree. Lee shanked the punt for only 14 yards.

The Bengals started their drive from the 43.

Standout Stat: Dalton started the game going 5 of 6 and went 1-4 since.

Highlight Reel: The best play for the 49ers so far was the 22-yard completion to Vernon Davis. Smith threw a great ball to Davis, who found a hole in the zone down the left sideline.

Put it in Perspective: The 49ers need to limit their negative plays. Every drive has ended as a result. The defense appears to have adjusted after the first drive. The fact that the defense was able to hold the Bengals to three points could be big come the end of the game.

SECOND QUARTER:

The Bengals weren’t able to capitalize on the good field position, going three and out as Dalton’s third down pass to Caldwell was short of the sticks. Ted Ginn signaled for the fair catch at the 12.

The 49ers offense went three and out. Lee’s punt was much better this time and the Bengals started their next drive at the 37.

Carlos Rogers put the Bengals drive to a halt with a great pass breakup on third down. Ted Ginn fair caught the punt at the 13.

Gore was dropped for a loss on first down and Rachal was flagged for holding on second down to back the 49ers up. A great run by Frank Gore on the next play would make it third and manageable and Smith hit Crabtree just beyond the sticks to keep the drive going. Jonathan Goodwin went down on the drive and was replaced at center by Adam Snyder. On 3rd and 9, Anthony Davis was flagged for a false start. On the next play, Smith was dropped for an eight-yard loss. Once again, the negative plays hurt the 49ers.

The 49ers defense forced a three and out after Ahmad Brooks crushed Dalton on first down and knocked his helmet off.

The 49ers started their next drive at the 17 and Jonathan Goodwin returned at center. On 3rd and short, Alex Smith hit Davis crossing to pick up just enough to move the chains. A false start penalty against Rachal backed the 49ers up, but they were able to overcome it thanks to a nice run by Gore on second down. On 3rd and manageable, Smith found Kendall Hunter in the flat and the rookie lowered his shoulder to get the first down. The drive stalled just short of midfield.

The 49ers would punt and the Bengals would run out the clock.

THIRD QUARTER:

Catastrophe was avoided on the 49ers first drive. On 2nd and short, Bruce Miller got the carry and fumbled. Thankfully, Miller was able to recover even though the Bengals initially signaled that they had it. The result of the play was a first down. The 49ers had a great chance to pick up the first down. Smith’s third-down pass hit Crabtree in the hands. He may have saw it late as it went through the hands of a Bengals linebacker as Crabtree couldn’t make the would-be first down catch. Lee’s punt was fair caught at the 6.

The Bengals picked up one first down on their next drive, but that would be it. The second false start penalty against A.J. Green backed the Bengals up and the 49ers held on third and long. Huber’s punt was a low line drive that Ginn returned to the 47.

Smith started the drive by rolling out and hitting Crabtree for a gain of 8, which put the 49ers inside Bengals territory. Alex Smith connected with Vernon on a huge 39-yard play down near the 5. The 49ers had two sets of downs to try to punch it in after a late hit penalty against Maualuga. The Bengals defense held and the 49ers settled for a 23-yard field goal by David Akers – the 300th of his career.

49ers 3 – Bengals 3

The Bengals took a shot deep down the middle on 3rd down, but Tarell brown did a great job to step in front of his man and knock it down. The punt rolled into the end zone for a touchback.

The last play of the quarter was a sack for a loss of 12.

FOURTH QUARTER:

Smith hit Davis on third and long, but it was well short of the first down and the 49ers had to punt. Cincinnati was called for a block in the back on the return which backed them up to their own 25.

The Bengals were backed up after Justin Smith drew a holding penalty on a big run by Benson. On 3rd and 11, the 49ers were in pursuit of Dalton, who just threw it away. Anthony Dixon was called for a hold on the punt return so the 49ers will start their drive at the 10.

On the first play of the drive, Gore had a nice run up the middle, but coughed up the ball and the Bengals recovered at the 16.

After a big run by Benson, down to the 5, the 49ers defense held. Cincinnati settled for a 23-yard field goal, but took the lead.

Bengals 6 – 49ers 3

Ginn fielded the punt halfway in the end zone and took it back to the 28. First play of the drive, Smith hit Morgan on an out for a gain of 12. Kendall Hunter just about broke the next run after he cut the toss left back inside and picked up another first down. On 3rd and short, Snyder and Sopoaga were both eligible – Gore followed a great block by Sopoaga and picked up the first down.

    Formula for beating the 49ers: Press against the Receivers, Have 1 safety at top, Then stack the box with 7 + safety. Since Receivers can’t get open, thus the QB can’t throw the ball deep, thus we have to run the ball, reason for the 8 man box. Solution: Do something about it Jimmy.

    You know its getting old already, every year can’t wait for next year, and then the same old crap. Great way to start a game, we could be playing our local high school team and Smith would still suck. Look how Cam Newton is doing and Dalton from todays game, both rookies and it speaks for itself. I would rather play our rookie and lose every game than watch another down with Alex the looser, sorry folks just my opinion and I am sick of this kind of football!!

    Yep once again. Alex lays the ball righht into V Davis hands to get us out of this field position and he drops it. Huge critical mistake on vernons part.

    JR yep—its a team game. If alex messes up I’m on him. But not to pick this game apart but Vernon’s HUUUUUGE drop was exactly that when you are looking at momentum, etc., and building field postion. those are the subltle destructive pieces whci kill drives that many arm chairs miss.

    That being said, everyone needs to play better and that means Alex but we also have 6 penalties.

  67. By Les on Sep 25, 2011 | Reply

    Everyone (announcers) keep saying “Poor Alex, he has had so many different offensive co-ordinators he cant learn the system…..” and I say lets put this in perspective. Alex has not performed for any of the many systems they try to get him to run…The whole team looks terrible today. Where is this new offense that Harbaugh has brought to the team? Holding it till next year? Where is the slant? The screen, the flanker screen? WHERE IS SUCCESS?

    Alex and crabbs each make a GREAT throw and catch and we get hosed by the refs.

    Just to prove a point I hope we win this 6-3. Really I do. I love our team grit. We just need time to gel and get our legs as a team, that’s why everygame and practice is key. Call it boring football for some but this is the life and death struggle to get to the top and I love the heart.

    we need our D now. After kickoff team stops them, let’s hope.

    I am from Utah and have been an Alex Smith supporter for 7 years now. Today is the day that I go on record as saying, “let’s put this guy on the bench and bring in David Gerrard or someone else to salvage this season.” No sense in kicking a dead horse. Fix the O-line and let Smith go to another team in the off-season.

    Man I am tired of this crap. Most people get excited when their offense has the ball, to see them move it and score. When our offense gets the ball we have to worry about what there going to do this time to screw the rest of the team. We can’t get first downs, we can’t do ANYTHING except give the other team points. Horrible

  179. By Keith Wood on Sep 25, 2011 | Reply

    WOW, Thank you for winning this game guys! I am so tired of our season being over by week 4, we needed this win. We have to win our divisional games and games we should win out of conference to be there at the end and have a shot at the playoffs. These were the games we couldn’t win last year and the previous years. We are going to have games against great teams and we ain’t there yet, but as long as we can win our divisional games against opponents with teams like ours and win the games we should win, we will have a chance to get better along the way and perhaps get to show it in the playoffs. Each year our season has ended we just start to get better and hit a stride, but can’t continue on into the playoffs, maybe this year will be different and by the time the playoffs start we will have a better handle on Harbough’s offense. I would like to see us get another QB, I’m not Alex bashing, just being honest, I would feel more comfortable if we could pick up someone else…. even Palmer since he is setting out and requesting a trade in Cinny. Just thinking…. Anyone else have any good ideas on picking up another QB??

    Hey (Niner4life and Seven years in SF) I dont see anyone saying Alex is setting the league on fire in this chat room. I just see die hard Niner fans supporting thier team win lose or draw just like I do all the way from Florida. I to think we need a change at QB but throwing another rookie in there to get killed I think would just set us back on the same track. What I think Alex is finally learning under Harbaugh is how to manage the game which he has never learned with the crappy O-cordinators we have had and its already translating into wins on the field. GO 9ERS!!!

    2. Smith is not the guy. I have, like many others given him the benefit of the doubt. Yeah, it’s easy to blame the 7 OC’s and what 3 or 4 HC’s, or the O Line for his failures. Bottom line…small girlie hands, telegraphs EVERYTHING, makes the absolute wrong choices when flushed, cannot perform under pressure. Need I go on?

    The O-line needs to improve. I don’t understand why they are not doing well… Is it the coach, the offensive schemes, or are they just not that good? Alex Smith did okay. 201 yards and 20?30 was not that bad, other QB didn’t even reach that 200 mark this week so i shouldn’t complain. I would like to see some more Hunter and less Gore. I love Gore but he plays to much, it’s good to vary between running backs. He might be an all down running back, but the 2 yards per carry are not great… It is not all his fault, i mean the 0-line is also to blame. Hunter would be great to use because he has great outside running ability (not that good inside). For those one yards, vary between DIxon and Gore, we shouldn’t forget Dixon. I am also happy that we did not get any interceptions from Smith, Bad game but a W is a W 1st place in the league!

    Great win for the 9ers. We have to learn how to win and this helps. I said I would basically save “most” of my opinions on Alexc until after game 4 or 5. Those of you who blame all of the sack on the O-line…half of them were on Alex…as Harbaugh has said, and I quote, “the qb plays a BIG part in sacks.” He hangs on to the ball way to long (count some time), the “has” to be out in no more than 3 seconds!!! He does not pull the trigger and he does not trust his receivers like he “needs” to do!!!

    Defense was suberb after the first series of downs!! The “D” is going to keep us in most of the games and give us a chance to win. As long as we win against our division opponents…we will make the playoffs. I really do not ecpect the team to “really” gel until about 10 games into the season…we will get better, but we have some tough opponents coming up and will have to play better!!

    Again, stay positive and its obvious what’s going on. We are building a team and whether Alex stays here or not (I hope He does)its about what the TEAM is doing.

    Again–for the folks that just don’t understand. Take next week off youv’e written us off anyway so there should be no complaints SUNDAY for real, take the day off, you have already called it.

    In 2-3 years if we keep growing, we will be a 10 win team again for years but we have to keep building.

    Never mind the negative folks, they live in many facets of life and not even the reply. So stay positive and let’s see our team become a tough physical team. We are kind of looking like the Jet’s of the last 2 yrs, kind of, with our own flare and Alex is way better than Sanchez that’s for TRUE.

    Go Niners

    sorry folks i just can’t believe that for 7 years you have said the same thing …..he looked pretty good there oh he will get better oh the line sucks …….the line is just that a line they do their job wich is to block now im sorry there is no line that can block forever and because of Alex’s mechanics issues he can’t get the ball out in time and the o line suffers because every coach in the league knows this and exploits Alex’s problem it can’t be solved because that is how he is and that is why we need to get rid of him not because we hate him ….don’t even know him …kow he has a lot of money …that is about it ….and yes it does matter that his mechanics are bad wich is why we need a QB who can get rid of the ball in time his sacks tonight were all him holding the ball to long

    oh and i will take the day off on sunday but ill be watching what the lovas are saying …it will prob be well we almost had em and if only Alex this ….he will get better ….oh those guys dropped the ball …..shame u claim to know football but refuse to the issues with the QB spot in terms of the coach limits play selection and has to call in the plays because it appears he has no grip of how to play ……from the first game u can see he doesn’t trust Alex witht the ball and just like all the other coaches and coordinators they are stuck with Alex and can’t see any way out ……..you are limiting the niners potential by denying the point of fact it is on film all of these things he does that make it harder for the line for the recievers and the running backs …..watch the film listen to the announcers when they break him down they are pros …..feel the pain the team suffers when the guy who is supposed to run the show can’t even throw a TD against a team that is suposed to be worse than us bah

    Hey seven years in S.F……now don’t you say anything against Alex or you may have to take a “time out” and stand in the corner next week. We can’t have you saying anything critical about this QB..tse tse tse. For any fan to say they watched a “good game” today is really putting his expectations in the toilet.

    Hey Seven Years don’t waste your time with these non football knowledge fans, let them have there 5 min. of cheering in the end we will get what we want which is Alex Smith gone.When Alex Smith is gone all of these people will be on our side rooting for his replacment because they are so called fans.At some point you have to be realistic and say a player is only as good as he could be, so it’s only time and man 7 years has beat me up but Alex will be gone I promise Seven Years.This is when we can say I told all of you retard fans who don’t know crap Alex is Gone, even if it’s due to injury because on top of being bad he is injury prone to.I only post once everytime after a game Seven Years because these fans give me a headace that say the same thing over and over again, and some like KDB makes believe he played some sport at a high level to make him feel important about what he is saying.

    I will root for the 49ers no matter who their QB is because that is what fans do. It has become personal for some of you that you are hoping smith is gone just to say “I told you so”. So what if the next QB blows and under achieves? You guys are pathetic if you call yourselves fans.

    Alexis played smart today, you guys have no idea what he was seeing from the Defense, so you have no idea if taking the sack or throwing the ball away was the best opion, yes i would like to see him get rid of the ball sooner, but i also like the fact that he has only threw 1 interception in 3 games. Lets put the blame on the real problems. Our O-line did not play well, Alexis was under constant pressure and they couldn’t pick up blitz’s, nor could they open up running lanes, I also think we need to give K. Hunter more carries. I love Frank G. but i think he needs help and K. Hunter is a good change of pace. V. Davis needs!!!! to play better. He still drops to many balls. I think having K. Williams and T.Ginn in on some of our run plays will force the D to respect the deep threat getting that 8 man out of the box, giving our running game a fighting chance, but all in all a win is a win, and i am happy to see us close out a game Go 9ers!

    The O-line will continue to get better every game they play together. This is a young line with the new guy calling the a$$ignments to the rest of the lineman. They will get better and barring injuries could be one of the best by years end with or without Alex!!

    Game 3 of the regular season against the less than impressive Cincinnati Bengals:

    After last weeks meltdown I felt great about this win.
    Although it wasn’t the blowout win we were all hoping for, there were a couple of aspects of the game that showed team improvement.

    1. Michael Crabtree is back in the lineup, and if Harbaugh challenged, he would have had his first TD of the season.

    2. The defense stepped up big time, especially in the 4th quarter.

    One of the main aspects of last weeks game that bothered me was Coach Harbaugh’s decision NOT to ice the rookie kicker on almost a 50 yard attempt at the end of regulation.

    It’s the little things this season that will boost us into the playoffs. If the Niners can continue to stay in games late, it’s going to take clutch coaching decisions and play calls to pull off the big W’s.

    Although the 49ers should be 3-0, it’s a way better start than last season’s 0-5 performance.

    Big game this Sunday against the Eagles in Philly. Hopefully Vick is unable to play.

    I believe Harbaugh will start to open up our offense as the team becomes more and more acclimated to his system. In the mean time we will have to depend upon our defense to keep us in the game.

    I like what I have been seeing from Alex Smith, but I believe Tolzien has a very good chance of unseating him next season. Tolzien’s play reminds me of Tom Brady. Hopefully by then our offensive line will come together.

    wouldn’t post 1st comment, try again. so nice to see #62 on bench in 2nd half, he is useless. now must motivate staley and davis, or perhaps we will play rookies couldn’t be any worse. OL must play better or AS get hurt bad. quit with the 3step drop blah blah if OL holds blocks no problem.

    i hope JR BACA is right about AS and SB.. I agree with him about AS but i don’t agree with him on OL. 11 sacks numerous knockdowns, harries, are going to put him on bench with bad injury. if coaches can’t fix the bad problem new personel is needed. it is an problem seen not only by a bunch of us but by the news media as well.
