Morning Tailgate: Sept. 21

Posted by Alex Espinoza on September 21, 2012 – 11:05 AM

Alex Smith has led the 49ers to a 15-3 regular season record since Jim Harbaugh took over as head coach before the 2011 campaign. Much of Smith’s success has been attributed to Harbaugh, who has helped the 49ers quarterback become one of the league’s most efficient players under center.

Chase Stuart of FootballPerspective.com analyzed advanced statistics and metrics of Smith’s season along with other NFL quarterbacks of the past and concluded that Harbaugh had similar years during his NFL playing career. Stuart specifically looks at Smith’s low interception rate among other things, noting, “Since Harbaugh came to town, Smith has a 93.6 passer rating, the 7th best mark of any quarterback over that time frame.”

Today’s Morning Tailgate also features a look back to yesterday’s show of 49ers support from the San Francisco Giants and more.

Jaymee Sire of Comcast Sports Net Bay Area spoke to Giants relief pitcher Sergio Romo about his Aldon Smith jersey and his love for the 49ers. Romo: “I know it’s not an Alex Smith jersey, but Aldon, you’re the man as well. Either way, got to show support. They love us and we love them. I’ll tell you what, we back you guys up all the way.”

Mike Sando of ESPN.com breaks down the 11-85 connection between Alex Smith and tight end Vernon Davis. Sando: “Davis has caught 29 of Smith’s 72 career scoring passes. The percentage (40.3) is the highest for any NFL tandem since 2001 (minimum 20 TD connections).”

Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle discusses Alex Smith’s impressive stretch of throwing passes without an interception and where it ranks historically. Branch: “The 49ers quarterback still needs 143 passes without a pick to break Tom Brady’s all-time record and 62 passes to surpass Rich Gannon and break into the top five.”

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee analyzes the benefits of the 49ers staying in Ohio for a week in between games. Barrows: “There’s something to be said for the camaraderie that builds when a team stays at the same hotel, eats at the same restaurant, has beers at the same bar over a week, players said. There’s also a circadian advantage to this approach in that the longer the players stay in the central (Minnesota) and then eastern (Ohio and New York) time zones, the more adjusted they’ll be to the kickoff against the Jets.”

Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com also discussed the week-long trip to the Midwest. Maiocco: “The 49ers’ ties to Ohio date back to 1977 when Youngstown shopping mall developer Edward DeBartolo Sr. purchased the 49ers and put his son, Edward Jr., in charge of the day-to-day operations. Denise DeBartolo York was an equal co-owner, though she remained far from the spotlight until she and her husband, John York, took control of the 49ers in 2000.”

Maiocco also looked at Kyle Williams’ role on the 49ers as the team’s top slot receiver. Maiocco: “Williams has been on the field, along with Michael Crabtree and Mario Manningham, whenever the 49ers go with three wide receivers. He is considered the team’s best fit as a slot receiver.”

Dave Feldman of Comcast Sports Net Bay Area spoke to 49ers running back Brandon Jacobs as he tries to return from his preseason injury. Jacobs: “I’m living and I’m on a good football team. Just trying to get healthy before I go out there. … I’m just taking it day-by-day.”

Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group lists 10 things to take note of this weekend when the 49ers travel to Minnesota. Inman: “The 49ers lead the all-time series against the Vikings 22-21-1. Neither team has posted a shutout, and the Vikings have never been shut out in 246 all-time games inside Mall of America Field.”

Branch looks at the stingy 49ers run defense. Branch: “In season-opening games against the pass-first Packers and Lions, the 49ers mostly played either dime (six defensive backs) or nickel (five) defense, which left them at least a man short up front. Still, they rank sixth in the NFL in rushing yards allowed (63.5) and eighth in yards per carry (3.2).”

Barrows spoke to newly-signed linebacker Eric Bakhtiari about his odyssey through the NFL. Barrows: “Bakhtiari said no one ever had told him he was good enough to play in the NFL until Jim Harbaugh said so when Bakhtiari was a freshman at the University of San Diego and Harbaugh was his coach.”

Barrows also examined the NFC West, which went a collective 4-0 last week. “The NFC West went 4-0 Sunday for only the second time in the past decade and is the only division with two teams – the 49ers and Cardinals – with 2-0 records. What’s more, the one-time stripling has been beating up on the NFL’s pretty-boy franchises.”

49ers.com’s daily coverage included press conferences from Dashon Goldson, Vic Fangio and Greg Roman. We also looked at Goldson’s rise to become one of the NFL’s best defensive backs, the constant improvement of the offense and Alex Smith’s response to the Giants’ support.

    NFC-W ! we bad, yeah we bad! Myself I’m a West Coast guy100% and I love it what the Big Bad East Coast teams come out here and get clocked, we send`em packing. IMHO we don’t need anybody else to beat our competition for us, we do it ourselves one game at a time!
    Yep NFC-W is bad … BUT we BADDER, eh?

    gary J-11 back? ? I don’t know ,., everybody else keeps asking them to post someplace else, have you done that?

    IMHO we need to stay focused this is only the second game of the season, true we are 2 and 0 but myself I’d really like to see more separation! Yeah I do like a blowout and so do my fingernails whats left of`em!
    We have 16 games left this season and we need to kept Alex upright, we need him for the long haul … I’m just saying!
    Our O’line should be one of the best, and their gonna have their work cut out for them sunday. I’d like to see them step up and show the Vik’s what they think of Alex, Its time for them to shine …… eh?

    thanks gary good to see ya again!
    You really want J-11 back? Myself I don’t mind anybody being critical thats what this blog is all about, but I’m so proud of Alex how he’s stood up to all the hate, and never once pointed a finger, always stood tall even took pay cuts for the team.
    It just gets old, J-11 come out with all those garbage lies, if he was really a fan, wouldn’t he be enjoying this turnaround?
    GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONINERS!
    How can anybody be a 9er fan, and not be happy for Alex ?

    16 game left ? you’re right its 17 sorry!

  24. By iswordsman on Sep 22, 2012 | Reply

    NEVER was a hater- my main concern with Alex was his READ>RELEASE speed, kinda raring back to throw: it was causing him to not throw to a lot of open guys, leaving many scoring opportunities on the field.. you know im not lyin and not hatin either
    What I saw in the last game looked much more like it, like he’s been working like hell to speed that up and SNAP that ball out to guys BEFORE they’re covered. I’m FREAKIN LOVING IT!!!!! Straight up GAMIN
    -BUT- Randy is OPEN dude, just put it up there
    This guy is turning into a “BEATS ALL ODDS TO SUCCEED” story…

    wordmans, did you read this, Alex this offseason went to see this baseball trainer for help with his throwing shoulder, that was injured a few years back. Drew Brees told Alex about Tom House the guys worked with other NFL QB’s as well! And because Alex does this J-11 attacks him, thats Bashing ! ! nothing you posted was bashing! Anyway here it is!
    “I’m FREAKIN LOVING IT!!!!! ” so am I Bro!

    I’ve posted a few times that I don’t second guess our coaches BUT, I think its time to open up the offense some! I mean when you play the way we have been playing and you fall a couple of TD’s down its tough to catch up, We have the talent to open it up more!

  181. By 49erdefense2012 on Sep 23, 2012 | Reply

    I dont think we can 9erdog,,alex has made too many poor throws today to trust opening up the playbook to move the ball down the field

    with the score as it is and if you’re gonna throw the ball at least throw the thing downfield then if you give up the pick its worth while. What poor performance all the way around, I figure we gonna lose a game its the NFL, but this? I would have bet a lot of money that this wouldn’t happen, and I’m not a betting man.
    But I would lost money on that ……………

    with as many penalties as were called on the 49ers today,to only have one called against the vikings is utterly ridiculous,,not making any excuses,but this game started with an illegal block in the back on the 49ers to open the game,,,,THEY WERE THE KICKING TEAM,,,AGAIN,,,,POOR PERFOMANCE ALL AROUND PLUS LOUSY GAME OFFICIATING WILL RESULT IN A LOSS ALMOST EVERYTIME,,,

    Folks you better be more concerned that by the time we start our divisional game’s that the team has it stuff together because the Cardinals are killing the Eagles .And I say this to the Viking fan enjoy it and remember this if you come on this blog don’t start talking big sh-t we have 5 Lombardy trophy’s you have none.

    I saw two penalties just from watching the highlights, one in the end zone that should have been called on the Vikings player for the arm bar and the holding when there QB took off up the middle. I read a post that said that they wish that Alex would get hurt that is WRONG IN SO MANY WAYS. 9ERDOG CAN’T BELIEVE YOU WERE THINKING THAT and the worst part is you posted it on the blog now I’ve made some comments but never like that. GO 49er,s
