The reviews are in. The 49ers have finished a second preseason game, a 20-9 defeat to the Houston Texans, and there’s been plenty of time to break down the action ever since thanks to NFL’s Preseason Live.
The 49ers had bright spots in defeat, but there’s always room for improvement. In reality, the best thing for the players is having more game tape to dissect and utilize as they prepare for the regular season.
In the same way coaches and players detail their every move on the football field, several Bay Area football writers have broken down the game tape with an eye on who stood out Saturday night against the Texans.
Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee also offers an in-depth look at the team’s second preseason contest.
Eric Branch of The San Francisco Chronicle shares Brandon Jacobs’ recent Twitter reaction after his Sunday MRI results.
Ian Rapoport of NFL.com cites a source who claims Jacobs’ MRI revealed “no major damage.”
49ers.com’s gave coverage included a game recap story, a notebook of game observations, a look at the first-team defense’s consistent ways, a video recap of the game and a Cover 2 breakdown of the 49ers-Texans matchup.
