Game Blog: 49ers at Ravens

Posted by Scott Kegley on November 24, 2011 – 5:36 PM

It’s finally here…the HarBowl. Jim Harbaugh’s 49ers (9-1) take on John Harbaugh’s Ravens (7-3) on Thanksgiving night.

Ray Lewis’ status was in question this week and he will be inactive for the game. One of the 49ers starters, Bruce Miller, will also miss the game and be replaced by Moran Norris.

49ers inactives: QB Scott Tolzien, WR Brett Swain, CB Shawntae Spencer, FB Bruce Miller, G Daniel Kilgore, G Mike Person, NT Ian Williams.

Ravens inactives: WR Tandon Doss, CB/RS Chris Carr, RB Anthony Allen, LB Ray Lewis, LB Dannell Elerbe, LB Sergio Kindle, DE Arthur Jones.

FIRST QUARTER:

The 49ers won the coin toss and elected to defer. On 3rd and 4, Joe Flacco hit Anquan Boldin on a quick slant for a gain of 22 as the Raven got into 49ers territory. Boldin caught the next pass over the middle for a gain of 16, down to the 31. Ray Rice gave the Raven their third first down of the drive, bouncing a run to the outside for a gain of 10. Once the Raven got down to the 20, the 49ers red zone defense was able to hold. On 3rd and 10, Flacco was pressured by Brooks, who dragged him down as he threw. Billy Cundiff’s 39-yard field goal was good.

Ravens 3 – 49ers 0

Ted Ginn returned the kickoff to the 29. The 49ers went three and out. Smith didn’t get rid of the ball in time on 3rd down and had to escape the pocket and was dragged down by Zbikowski for a sack. Lee’s punt was fielded deep and returned to the 10 as the 49ers had good punt coverage.

The 49ers defense responded with their own three and out and will get the offense the ball at the 32.

On 3rd and 2, the 49ers converted as Smith hit Vernon Davis crossing for a gain of 20. After getting inside the 30, Smith was sacked on 3rd and short. David Akers drilled a 45-yard field goal to tie it up.

49ers 3 – Ravens 3

Flacco hit Torrey Smith and Boldin on back to back plays to start the drive as the ravens quickly got into 49ers territory.

Highlight Reel: Frank Gore absolutely leveled safety Bernard Pollard as he came on a blitz. No running back in the league pass protects as well as Gore.

Standout Stat: The Ravens have 97 yards of offense through the first quarter.

Put it in Perspective: The ravens have been able to pick up big chunks of yardage so far. The 49ers defense needs to limit the big plays. It’s been a very evenly matched first quarter.

SECOND QUARTER:

Aldon Smith pressured Flacco, who threw it away on third down. Ginn faked a fair catch and let the punt roll into the end zone.

Smith hit Ginn for a 75-yard touchdown, but it was called back because of a chop block. Smith was sacked on 3rd down as the defensive lineman went unblocked by Rachal. Costanzo drew a block in the back on the punt, backing the Ravens up to their own 35.

The defense forced a three and out. Flacco scrambled on 3rd down and looked to have enough room to pick up the first down, but the defense closed quickly and brought him down one yard short.

Kendall Hunter picked up 9 yards on the first play of the drive on a sweep to the left side. The 49ers picked up one first down, but that would be it. Smith was sacked once again and Delanie Walker was flagged for a false start to put them in third and very long.

Big penalty to start the drive. Tarell Brown picked off Flacco’s pass intended for Smith deep, but he was called for PI. With the Ravens threatening on the goal line, the defense held. Flacco tried to scramble on third down and was well short.

Ravens 6 – 49ers 3

The 49ers marched down the field with their two-minute offense. On 4th and three, John Harbaugh called a timeout and brother Jim went for it. There were 12 men in the huddle for Baltimore, but the 49ers converted either way. Smith tried to take a shot for Braylon Edwards. It was a bit underthrown and Edwards wasn’t able to make a play on the ball. It was picked off by Lardarius Webb in the end zone.

Highlight Reel: All three play of the 49ers goal line stand were impressive, but the second down play where Spillman dropped Rice for a loss was probably the best.

Standout Stat: The 49ers and Ravens are evenly matched in just about every stat, but the 49ers have one turnover that cost them three point…which is the difference in the game.

Put it in Perspective: Adam Snyder has been in and out of the game with a leg injury and it’s seemed to hurt the chemistry on the offensive line. They’ve given up four sacks. The 49ers will get the ball to start the second half and need the same kind of performance they had to start the second half last week.

THIRD QUARTER:

On 3rd and 17, Smith threw a beautiful ball to Crabtree on a deep out for a gain of 18. Smith picked up another first down with his legs, escaping the pocket and running all the way to the 45. The drive stalled after a sack by Terrell Suggs, but David Akers was able to tie it up by hitting a 52-yard field goal.

49ers 6 – Ravens 6

The Ravens converted on third  down as Flacco hit Boldin in the right flat and he was able to get to the first down marker just before Culliver got there for the tackle. The Ravens picked up another first down as Flacco hit Lee Evans on a crossing route all the way across the field to pick up 8. The Rans drove all the way down inside the 10 before the end of the quarter.

Highlight Reel: Crabtree made a great leaping catch to convert on 3rd and 17.

Standout Stat: the 49ers are just 2 of 8 on third down conversions. Several of them have been third and longs.

Put it in Perspective: It’s still a tie game though Baltimore is threatening to score. It’s still anyone’s ball game. The 49ers can’t turn the ball over and need to give Smith time to throw. He’s been getting hit all game, while Flacco has had plenty of time to throw.

FOURTH QUARTER:

Not the way the 49ers wanted to start the fourth quarter as Flacco hit Pitta for a score over the middle.

Ravens 13 – 49ers 6

Ginn returned the kickoff to the 28. The 49ers went three and out at a time when they needed a good drive. Smith was again sacked on third down. It was the Ravens 7th sack of the game, a season high.

The Ravens started their drive from the 28. After getting into 49ers territory, the 49ers held on 3rd and inches as Bowman brought down Rice in the backfield. Ginn called for the fair catch at the 10.

Smith was sacked for the eighth time, this one coming on third down to force a three and out and a punt. Spillman made the tackle on the punt at the 40.

The Ravens kept their streak of third down conversions in the second half going as Flacco hit Rice on 3rd and short. We have to run down to the field to get ready for postgame.

    I can already see it….. O line lets Alex take an as-s kicking, seven years and everybody in the media makes Alex take another as-s kicking. He gets slammed for playing like cra-p but people won’t say a word about the O-line letting him get mauled for an hour.

  60. By 494panther on Nov 24, 2011 | Reply

    There is one person losing the game thats Alex. he commands the ball and he doesnt know what to do with all the pressure still after all these years. He was never meant to be great, or even good, hell he even doesnt make good enough for now.

    the quarter back is the key to the offense. If he learns to counter a blitz regardless of the o line then he make the defense think twice about doing it gain. they keep blitzing because they know he cant handle it.

    alex smith has to stop rolling his arms everyone knows that means run. and our coach will never make it to superbowl.the corner give too many space. your corners are afraid. and your defense does not listen. and his brother put him back in his place. and no one is rushing from the center. Gore is play without his brains to day. you all fell apart and here I thought we might have hope. you have had an easy season and this was the first hard game and you all choked. I wasted my thanksgiving evening watching you lose. the was the worse game I have seen and the sad part is all the other games were not that much better. NO SKILL AT ALL IN THE WHOLE TEAM, MAINLY THE COACHING. fire alex and gore we told you that in game two and pick up at lest two wide recivers. crabtree can’t do everything.

    I’m sure they will watch all that film they have of how to take a but kicking. Maybe they learn how to pressure a QB while watching it too. If anything tho, they should have plenty of film to show the O-line how good they AREN’T and point out each time they got their buts handed to them. No wonder BAL goes to the post season all the time. Their D is 2nd to none. I know Alex is good enough to beat them, but he can’t do it laying on his back.

  96. By MontyRay on Nov 24, 2011 | Reply

    9 sacks is nuts. What happened to the O-Line?

    2 things:

    1. Be sure all teams will do this as the formula to beat the Niners. They will bring the house. Alex is a game manager. Can’t manage a game if you don’t have more than 1.5 seconds to decide and throw.

    2. Aside from Crabtree last week, this team has finally been exposed that it does not utilize the big receivers. Edwards might as well not be on the team.

    Both of these things are correctable. Let’s hope that this loss and exposure will shore up the team strategy before they go to post season.

  97. By 49ersALLin on Nov 24, 2011 | Reply

    Man just got back from watching the game. 9 sacks, 10 hurries, 11 hits, I mean why did we even start Chilo Rachal? I’ve never seen Mike Iupati beat so bad, let alone watching 4 rushers beat our 5 linemen. Seriously, we need a top threat receiver. Braylon should have won that 1 on 1 matchup against Jimmy Smith. Heck, he was 4 inches taller and still got out boxed. Our receivers we have now aren’t going to cut it. Ted Ginn….Ted Ginn….how did you drop that ball…thats twice now when we need it. Good thing is we can now evaluate where we are at. This is not a set back, but something to build on. Seriously though, of all things, I’m more dissapointed at Braylon than the O-Line. We picked you up for a reason, for that 1 on 1 matchup where you out jump their CB, and when you get beat by a smaller CB, its just sad. The fact that you didn’t even try to jump over him is even worse, instead you got outboxed by him. It was like a Point Gaurd outboxing a Power Forward for a rebound. Next year’s first round draft pick: Wide Receiver Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma State.

    Im not opposed to a loss, it is the NFL and it happens. Im just upset that the O-Line couldnt do anything. The 9ers will still win the division as well as have 2nd at least in the NFC. Go 9ers!

    Defense played excellent. Offense – time for a wake-up call. Especially O-line. We still have the second best record in the NFC and any combination of 2 wins or 2 Seachick losses clinches the Division.

    I think we needed this loss for a reality check. Go Niners

    IT HAPPENS, tough loss. Did not play well or make adjustments to compensate for the furious rush Baltimore had all night. Not Smiths fault. Why not roll out more to buy time, and for gosh sakes get rid of the ball to avoid the sack. O-Line was terrible tonight.Dont let any Western Division Teams sneak up and beat us. Go Niners

    We layed an egg today. Yes you can argue the chop block call etc, but at the end they still had 8 sacks, 10 hurries, and 11 knockdowns, which is a reflection of the O-Line. I felt like I was watching the pre season game against the Saints tonight. We need to regroup and take this as a checkpoint. Remember the winning superbowl teams always had a gutcheck game. A game that showed their flaws, this was our game. Hopefully the O-Line can see where they got beat and strengthen the fort. I still believe we need a receiver, thats twice now that Ted Ginn dropped a game decision ball. Next year draft, Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma and USC’s linemen.

    WOW, I don’t understand how a team (Baltimore) can bring the house on blitzes and our staff can’t put in any quick slants over the vacated area with our two pro bowl TE’s. It was like Smith was taking 3 & 5 step drops all night long and the line couldn’t hold up, so I thought for sure they would adjust to that, they made in game and between series adjustments all season long, why didn’t they do it in this game, it was as if they were intent on beating their heads against the wall with a single game plan. Who knows, were not there and we are not apart of the game planning sessions.

    Having to play three days later, I was wondering how they even had time to work up and implement a game plan. I am like the rest of you, I think they will get this adjusted for sure, no worries there and we are still way up in our division, so hopefully this is just something that will make them stronger. I’m proud of the team, all they have accomplished this year and am excited to see what’s next for sure.

    Don’t hang your heads (team & fans), there is still plenty of football left this season and not many teams or fans can boast of a 9-2 record in week 12, but WE CAN! Let’s go Niners, shake this off, become better for it and learn from it. Your still the greatest NFL team ever!

    P.S. D. Sue is such a loser, said he didn’t intentionally stomp on that Green Bay player LOL, whatever…. Did he not know “Replay” was invented? Smashed they guys head into the ground twice as well. I hope he gets suspended for like LIFE! LOL loser

    I didn’t expect the 49ers offense to go into this game running on all cylinders after only three days rest and having to travel, but our defense still played quite well. .This year reminds me of our 81 season when we won 8 straight, lost a game to Cleveland then won the rest of our games in route to winning the Super Bowl.

    Justin, you are so wrong on this one. Alex played good ball, but his offensive line was not up to the task of protecting him and opening holes for Gore against a high caliber defense on only three days rest. This scenario will not be played out again this season. The 9ers will be well rested and ready to play here on out.

    lol @ justin, look at all our weapons? The only real weapons we have is Vernon, Gore and Michael as a pistol. Braylon couldn’t even beat a 1 on 1 with a cb smaller than him. When you shut gore down and need our best blocker who is our best receiver to block, what other weapon do you have? Apparently you didn’t see the sacks that came. Again Justin, you blew a big game comment. We need better bloggers and need to get rid of Justin because he’s costing us horrible Blogging Comments.

    I had to step out to manage a few things…lol. I had great faith that when I check on the game later (like right now) we would be 10-1. I am not sad that we are 9-2 instead. After reading all the written articles on the game, and all your comments (the Niner Faithful Fans Comments), I am still excited to know that we have one of the best teams in the NFL this year. I feel that in some way we will run into this team in the play-offs, or another like team in the Super-Bowl. You know what, we will be better prepared for it after losing this game today. There were many reason why we should lose this game, but our guys stood up like men and performed admirably, and I am proud to say that I have their backs.

    Sure the O-line could have played better, we still only lost by one touchdown after what Alex Smith had to put up with all game long. That in my book is a very good game considering what our team had to put up with in order to play this game. Sure a win would make us all feel much better, it’s games like this that will make our team a better team in the future. All in all, Happy Thanksgiving to all of you my fellow Niner Faithfuls.

    This was the saddest game I’ve ever seen. I really thought that Singletary and Jimmy Raye were back with the awful playcalling from last year. You can’t tell me that this coaching staff got this incompetent in one week… it’s impossible!!

    Also, I’ll be the first to admit there could be some “throwing” of the game by Jim to his brother. 49ers are already fairly set (based on our sched for the rest of the year) to make the playoffs. Unless the playcalling continues like yesterday, it’s a lock. But… no so for his brother John. They are in a heated match with Steelers and Cincy. So… we “have a bad week”, and “fix the problems”. We give the Ravens (John) a needed win for them, and we still win our division and go to the playoffs. I REFUSE to believe a head coach in the NFL (and FORMER QB) doesn’t know to call a screen or two when being blitzed that much. It’s not rocket science. Either Jim H. became totally incompetent in a week, or there’s more to it!!

    We were basically out matched. Stupid penalties and lack of protection. You are not going to win a game getting sacked 9 times. I dont know why there wasnt an adjustment made at half. Alex played as well as he could of. The INT was braylons fault. At least make an effort to go get the ball. How could we complain at 9-2? We need to beat the steelers and go in the playoffs at 14-2. But we need to start getting better with protection.

I hope Snyder gets well soon because the Oline obviously was not the same without him in there.. Alex had not time to throw and there were no lanes open for gore… We just need to play better.. This was like a Practice Playoff game… With the hype that was involved, everyone in the country watching and the crowd noise… Thats why I know it will help our team.. Iron sharpens Iron!

Now that being said. I hope we play them again, I truly believe we can coach with them and play better O as well. Hey Flacco threw for only like 160 yds or something like that, so again, Alex threw for 140yds with that pressure, nuff said, he’s really inspiring to the fans, and his team mates.

    Give me equal time, learn from this and neutral field, we could do it. I’ll say this. If this game was at the Stick 180 dgree shift, we beat them probably worse.

    I dont think seven years dislikes this team. He simply doesnt think that Alex is all that some of you pretend he is. He is NOT a Pro Bowl QB. He is an average NFL QB at best. However, that being said, I would like to see him perform with as much protection as other QB’s are given. That makes the difference. Y.A. Tittle proved that when the Niners traded him to the NY Giants and he had a GREAT year with good protection. Also, we do need to put pressure on the QB. 9 sacks to 0 tells all. Our D is GREAT except for that part of the game. I too was a bit stunned that we did not attack Baltimore’s blitz’s with screens or slants. Go figure. Tough loss just like Dallas…we could easily be 11-0.

    I feel this will be a good learning experience for the niners going into the playoffs. With continuous blitzing from the Ravens, it’s really difficult to pick all those defenders up with that much talent. I was watching the GB Det game and noticed the lions were doing something similar to GB. Rogers must have run about 15 plays where it was a quick out to the receiver behind the line. This play plus screens are a perfect counter to heavy blitzing creating a potential 1 on 1 situation outside the box when the entire defense is at the QB. It just didn’t seem like the niners offence adapted like GB did, although they didn’t have much time to prepare for this game. I’m hoping they will use this experience to have their offence adapt against talented defensive teams to keep them guessing and off balance. Niners defense was strong as usual but was tiring out cause they were on the field almost the entire second half. Niners have the talent and the coaching to go all the way – 2011/2012 superbowl champs baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    gotta give credit where credit is due, baltimores defense is still the best in the league but our defense is up there too, we got robbed for a touchdown but oh well the officials are always gonna make sure the bigger marketing teams win big games like that..Alex smith could make plays if the O line can protect, they couldn’t even do that, frank gore only ran the ball 14 times, that was our biggest mistake, adam snyder got injured in the 2nd quarter and chilo came in and just made our O line ten times worst, chilo needs to get cut after that performance he’s not even a back up, anyways, i thought our defense was great, were still a young team and no matter what you still can’t take away the fact that were still one of the best teams in the league, and even Ray Rice said it “There the best team we’ve played all year” I hope we play them again, we have another big test and chance to redeem ourselves against Pittsburgh 2 weeks from now at candlestick…I hope the O line gets better and we meet the ravens in the superbowl and redeem ourselves..

    But anyway we had a few things against us, such a short time between games, plus the travel time and 3 time zones. I doubt
    anyone here thought we’d go unbeaten the rest of the way. IMHO if we had to loss one, this as a good game to loss? As bad as we got punched in the face it was close, And it showed just how useless Chilo is, if there were any questions about him at all they’ve been answered?

    This is Smith’s coming out year. He finally has coach’s who can coach and has a real play book. Rodgers wasn’t no super star at first and he still has the same coach’s and plays. I dont look at Smith as a 7yr vet right now. He got the shaft all the way up until this year. I think he will be really good, you watch. Who cares what happened in Baltimore, only the Ravens win there. SF will be giving GB a run for their money.

    sdkota9er and JR nuff said about Alex, we R in agreement and for those few who still don’t get it-it’s ok who cares they don’t know the game of NFL football so it really doesn’t matter. Who you going to listen to, Harbaugh and the rest of the NFL players on how good Alex is or a few “never was” type players that were’nt even good enough to be called “Has Beens: LOL!

    Now, Alex threw for 140 and Flacco threw for 160 you kiddin me.. I want the Ravens again your very being has been flushed down the toilet aqnd your knowledge is sub par when all you do is haggle and moan like an unueducated fan.

    I played the game at the highest level so I don’t give any credence to a pot stirrer, their very being about football has been smashed because they went to the grave on how bad they thought Alex was and now, they are being exposed, period and END OF STORY so let’s move on.

    remember these are the same girls that wanted Alex to throw 10 picks against Philly, common Really. Bye Bye now to them.

    Go Niners.

    Oh and YES Alex can be a pro Bowel QB just like all of the others that have a Good TEAM around them, so pay Attention to how and what was said.

    It is truly AMAZING to me how Dumb some people are to the game of Football, plain and Simple, Truly Amazing.

    If you think I’m thinking about you when I wrote this, then the shoe probably fits.

    Go Niners Baby!

    I was very disappointed in the offense as a whole. The O-line got “schooled” by the Ravens “D”. I have not seen them look more at a loss. As many above, I believe this loss will only make them better and the O-line take another look at themselves. Alex and/or receivers, still can’t make those hot reads. Alex looked good in the first half, lost in the second “some of it because the O-line, some on him. The coaches did not adjust the play calling to the pressure being given.

    Defense “had” to be tired by the 4th quarter. Didn’t necessarily expect a win, but didn’t think I would see the offense play this poorly. Have some work to do, but I believe the O-line will only get better from this as they are still young…I certainly hope so.

    i am still convinced the O-line will get better and Alex is playing some of the best football I have seen “him” play. This was a true test for out team and we saw it is not there yet, but they are a lot further ahead than I thought they would be this year. You know Pitt. is going to bring it and that will be another test to see where our team is. I was not as upset at this loss as I have been at others.

    You also heard how often the brothers have talked, so I am sure Jon knew how to game plan against us, maybe a little better than Jim did, just due to experience alone.

    I want F*n Dallas in the playoffs!!!!

    ADAM SNYDER LEFT THE GAME WITH A LEG INJURY CORRECT,
    IT S REAL HARD TO REPLACE A PLAYER AT ANY POSTION ,

    I TRULY BELIVE IF HE HADEN GOTEN HURT JUST MAYBE .
    IT WOULDVE BEEN A DIFFERNT OUT COME .
    A SHORT TIME AGO EVERYBODY WAS SAYING HOW GREAT THE OVERALL PERFORMANC OF THE OL WAS .

    Either support your team for what we have now and Shut Up and see what happens. If changes are made next yr then great, but I wouldn’t want to be in a Fox Hole with some of you because you are E Z Pickens for the Enemy.

    SEVEN YEARS WITH ALEX, YOU ARE ONLY 2% OF HATE TOWARDS OUR TEAM AND 98% SUPPORTS ALEX AND OUR TEAM, AND NEWS FLASH, WE WILL WIN THE REST, AND I HOPE THEY SIGN ALEX TO A 5 YEAR CONTRACT. I REALLY HOPE YOU LEAVE TO ANOTHER TEAM OR MAYBE YOU ALREADY BELONG TO ANOTHER TEAM. YOU NEED TO GET OVER YOUR HATE TOWARDS ALEX BECAUSE YOU REAllY SOUND STUPID. IT IS IMPOSSABLE FOR YOU TO BE A 49ER FAN THE WAY YOU ACT. YOU NEED TO GET OFF YOUR HATE WAGON AND JOIN THE REST OF US POSITIVE FANS THAT SUPPORT ALL OUR 49ER TEAM MEMBERS. THE PAST IS THE PAST, YOU COULD NEVER GO BACK. THIS IS ALEX’S TIME TO SHINE AND TO PROVE HIMSELF TO THE WORLD, AND HE HAS. HE AND THE TEAM ARE GETTING BETTER WITH THE RIGHT COACHING STAFF, AND THEY WILL CONTINUE TO GROW AND WILL BECOME ONE OF THE BEST TEAMS IN THE NFL. WE WILL PREVAIL.

    GO 49ERS>>>>>>>10 AND 2 NEXT SUNDAY AGAINST THE RAMS!!!!!!!

    To all the Niner Faithful Fans…..I truly love you guys. You guys are the ones I would love to be in the trenches with, the ones who will never dish on any of us, or any member of our team. I have nothing but respect for you.

    On the other hand, I have nothing but pity for those of you who call yourselves Niners fans and don’t like a member of our team. Mannnn God curse me if I was unlucky enough to be with you in the trenches…you’d be the first to get shot….lol. I (and I’m sure many of you faithful fans agree) can not stomach you fake fans. I feel like I ate something ungodly when I read your posts let alone look at your usernames.

    Seven, what is up with you. I know you are big on trying to converting people to your corner, where you dream of being called “El Supremo” in the so-called QB knowledge. Let me be the first to let you know that no one cares about your knowledge if “it is all against the San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Alex Smith.” Do it to Aaron Rogers and we will all be on your corner buddy (maybe not all of us…lol). Do it to Tom Brady and I will hail you a god/dess….lol. Freakin hell dude. Strap it when it comes to our QB. Put a sock in it when it comes to AS. Shoot yourself first before you hurl another bad comment about my QB, Alex Smith. I don’t wanna hear it. It’s that easy.

    Dude, be a good man and stop your nit-picking on our QB. JUST STOPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!! How about biting your tongue next time and say….Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Niners Goooooooooooooooooooo.

    Ha ha ha ha ha,

    I think the defence played excellent considering they were on the field almost the entire second half. As for the offence, they need to adjust a little more quickly. When the defence keeps sending the house you need to through some quick outs, slants and screens to take the pressure off. They will learn from this and will be a better team in the playoffs from this experience. Plus they had no time to prepare for this game having to fly from coast to coast in 4 days.

    If the 49ers are going to be a legitimate contender for another ring, here are a craft couple of observations; 1 – They must get a whole ot better on the o-line. Perhaps another High Draft Pick in 12. 2 – Alex has either got to develop a quicker release, shorter drop, and an ability to make split second decisions. He tends to hold the ball way to long.

    BASIL……i’m not saying we havent played some great games that were huge in proving who we r…..i guess i just look at the Ravens and they have been a force for a decade……Lions…huge win because they were 5-0 at the time, but a very young QB, still a good win, the Giants was huge because they are a playoff caliber team, but there D is not anything what the Ravens bring with ecperience at all three levels…D line, LB’s and Reed! and it was Thanksgiving, nationally televised and probably the biggest game or time of the year to play during the reg season, plus the whole brother thing…..it can wear on a guy, especally with a short week. i just think that it was great game for our young team, win or lose to play and get our feet wet with a team that has won alot in the post season. with all the sacks and huge penaltys, it was a close game….we r right there!!!!!

    rjd niner……..I have played Rugby pretty much my whole life. Played mostly in the backs….center, winger, fullback. I played some loose forwards some, and even 2nd rower, it’s pretty tough in the forwards pack. You must be tall to play the 2nd row. I know I don’t want that position…lol. I also play a host of sports. I don’t know why but where ever the was a game on when I was a kid, I was pretty much in the middle of that game…lol. Love sports, there is no game like American Football though. Rugby is much easier to play than grid-iron, and I have played both. good to hear from another Rugby fan….gooooooooooooooooooo Niners.
