Morning Tailgate: Oct. 2

Posted by Taylor Price on October 2, 2012 – 10:48 AM

The San Francisco 49ers helped and hurt an astounding league-wide statistic last week in New Jersey.

According to a release sent out by the National Football League early Tuesday morning, teams scored 699 points in Week 4, bringing the season total to 2,986 points – the most points scored through the first four weeks of a season and the most of any four-week stretch in NFL history.

The San Francisco 49ers offense contributed mightily to the output, producing 34 points against the New York Jets. Conversely, the defensive unit made sure the point total wasn’t any higher with a shutout performance.

Through Week 4, teams have combined to score 47.40 points per game, the highest average through Week 4 since 1970. Last season, team’s averaged 45.56 combined points during the opening four weeks of NFL action.

The NFL also notes that teams have combined to score 327 touchdowns through Week 4, the most ever in the first quarter of the NFL’s season.

SI.com’s Peter King lists the 49ers as his No. 3 team in his NFL power rankings. Kings: “Niners 34, Jets 0: Most dominant game by any team in the first four week of the season.”

ESPN.com’s NFL writers voted San Francisco as the league’s fourth-best team through four weeks.

Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News offers grades from the 49ers win in New York, including rave views for the coaching staff. Inman on Jim Harbaugh’s staff: “Bravo, bravo. The glowing reviews for this off-Broadway show were much needed. Creativity emerged with the WildKap offense, which complemented a brute-force running game. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio had his unit totally dialed into the Jets’ play calls. Grade: A.”

FoxSports.com lists the 49ers impressive win as one of the biggest takeaways from Week 4. “You know about Frank Gore and Randy Moss. But Sunday marked the official coming-out parties for 49ers backup QB Colin Kaepernick (No. 7), newly acquired wideout Mario Manningham and backup running back Kendall Hunter. Kaepernick played the “Tebow” role the Jets brass likely dreams the real Tim Tebow could play, running the ball five times for 50 yards and a touchdown and nearly connecting with Moss on another score late in the second quarter. The 49ers’ offense has a lot of tricks in its bag. And we haven’t even seen rookie running back LaMichael James yet. The D’s great. The offense is darn good, too.”

49ers.com looked at the team’s recently created new workout facility.

Seats for the new Santa Clara Stadium are on sale for the general public.

    Let’s see from what ive seen of the BILLS there a team as always you must get totally prepared for, Fitzpatrick is a fairly descent QB, so when they show the stick from the blimp nothing but red is what I what am going to see.

    one game at a time, first we win our division then home field
    through out the p[layoffs. and nothing will come easy! What I’m hoping for is for us to make it throughout the season without injures, and to peak a couple a games before the end of the season. GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONINERS!

    kap is still taking too long setting up his feet when throwing from the pocket

  16. By 49erdefense2012 on Oct 2, 2012 | Reply

    and untill he gets the hang of that,,,,,,,,,,,,,you’ll just have to keep wishing your raiders didnt suck so bad

  17. By 49erdefense2012 on Oct 2, 2012 | Reply

    but, seriously, thats kap’s on-going problems. the kid can spin it,but he has to be on the move,keeping his feet striding, when he plants his feet to throw,,,BOOM,, too much shoulder, equating to late throws,,,see randy moss before the triple coverage caught up to him

  18. By 49erdefense2012 on Oct 2, 2012 | Reply

    alex may lack certain things, but he can make plays from the pocket,as can tolzien, kap on the other hand,,well, lets just say, he has to learn more than the pistol formation to succeed at this level,,the wild-cat formations lasted how long again ???
