Morning Tailgate: Oct. 3

Posted by Taylor Price on October 3, 2012 – 10:59 AM

Patrick Willis was singled out Wednesday morning as the NFC’s Defensive Player of the Week.

However, it wasn’t just Willis who played a major role in the team’s 34-0 dismantling of the New York Jets.

According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, it was a team-wide effort that enabled San Francisco to improve to 3-1 on the season. Barrows offered his thoughts on the performance in a recent film study review.

“For the first time this season, every 49er who dressed for the game set foot in the game,” Barrows wrote. “And they just didn’t make token appearances. Everyone – from backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick to undrafted rookie Garrett Celek to dime cornerback Perrish Cox - played a role Sunday. Twelve different 49ers either had a carry or a reception on offense, and it would have been 13 if fullback Will Tukuafu hadn’t been interfered with on a late goal-line play.

Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com also reviewed the film and broke down the offense’s performance in separate posts, including the team’s third-down execution.

Kevin Lynch of SFGate.com writes that Brandon Jacobs is ready to return to action.

Nate Stuhlbarg of CSNBayArea.com looks at Delanie Walker’s evolving role in the 49ers offense.

49ers.com looked at the bond among the team’s offensive linemen, Brandon Jacobs’ eagerness to play, and Andy Lee’s solid game in New York.

    I have complained a few times about seeing the score form last yrs. nfc cham. game and got an email from taylor price asking about it and wanting to take care of it. it was an old link from a favorites key that has now been over-written and the problem is solved but it was very kool for them to respond to it,,,

    thing that bothers me most here, is that when I take the time to put a lot of thought intro a post, that the post that post that won’t post, Murphy’s law I guess? But I am happy that we have this Blog, and I like the posters even J-11 he says some things, if he could just look at the whole picture!

    lot of thought into that post, oh well!

    Thank you for your honesty 9erdog….as i have said long before and still now the website is weak lots of posts gone that were well written and thought out only to be tossed into space ….

  15. By 11yearswithalex on Oct 3, 2012 | Reply

    as for the alex ….come on people alex has several weak spots not just a few like other QB’s and i am not saying he has to be perfect …as i have said before several times as well ……alex has no it factor to drive the team to excite the team or even promote greatness from the team …he concernse himself with not making a mistake wich is his biggest mistake

  16. By 11yearswithalex on Oct 3, 2012 | Reply

    now that being said …if you watch the games with a eye for flow and mechanics as i do …no pro but come on you all have an opinion on Tebow and payton so same thing ….opinions are based on what you know and facts presented …fact the offense did nothing till kaepernick came in and scored ….fact it sparked the team and made things happen ….alex could have run that same play …but why didnt he …different skillsets …maybe but alex has run few in so prob not main factor ….

  17. By 11yearswithalex on Oct 3, 2012 | Reply

    thye main problem is the niners want to make alex something he is not ….he has not the skills or natural talent to do those things …his grasp of the NFL is still not there …..the QB game is just that a game …throw it deep even if not complete it puts it in the minds of the secondary …hey he just threw that into the stands from 60 yards away …hmmm might want to take a step back

  18. By 11yearswithalex on Oct 3, 2012 | Reply

    or hey he just hit that guy twice for short completions maybe i can jump this route and bam receiver jukes and alex throws a bomb for a TD….nope those things do not happen among several other ….he throws check downs and when it posted on his face only then will he throw the ball ….and of course he will not throw into a zone if the receiver does not have 5 steps on the defender because his accuracy after 7 years is not there still…..short accuracy 1-10 ….id say 8…med accuracy…id say 6 and deep a 5 …not good numbers if you want to win a superbowl ….the niners are so close and yet so far

  19. By 11yearswithalex on Oct 3, 2012 | Reply

    the defense can only do so much and with all the 3 and outs alex runs the defense will get more and more tired as the season goes on …just think if alex could sustain drives and keep the defense fresh the whole season …now that would win superbowls ….count it

  20. By 11yearswithalex on Oct 3, 2012 | Reply

    and no alex does not have to be perfect sure things happen but more often than not teams are running as close as they can get to the ravens defense against us and now the vikings defense against us ….jets tried it and it worked until kaepernick came in and made em look like a bunch of monkeys trying to catch a football …lol

    i’m hoping ur not one of the guys in the web page that runs it…..

  22. By 49erdefense2012 on Oct 3, 2012 | Reply

    offense did nothing before kap came in? guess you didnt see how well the running game was working. and alex has no drive to to excite the team? after what alex smith has been through with the local media and dummys like you with all the scrutiny and negative press, his team-mates will walk through fire for and with him, a point that has been missed by you, obviously,,to his team mates,alex doesnt need to have bress or brady like stats, alex has been through the fire with them, and as long as they are winning, nothing else matters, another point that alludes you cuz your blinded by your own ineptitude

    I’m pulling for the Rams tonight, hey 11yrs you’re really enjoying the attention aren’t you and that drum is worn out, and I can’t believe you attacked the DeBartolo family.

  31. By temper11 on Oct 4, 2012 | Reply

    11… I feel really sorry for you. You can’t even enjoy what is happening here because you’ve spent so much time bashing Alex that all your energy now goes into trying to support your false claims.

    I’m not trying to suppress 11′s comments, but why do all of his comments make it through? He just rattled off 7 long comments in a row… I can’t get 2 out. What gives? Is 11 the freakin’ moderator?

  33. By 9erdog on Oct 4, 2012 | Reply

    “attacked the DeBartolo family.” I miss that?
    J-11 I give you a ‘little’ credit and you go off on Alex, don’t you get it, Alex is only one player on this team ? You also seem to forget that there is another team on the field that wants to win the game, and they control a lot of what happens in the game.
    You have tunnel vision all you can see is Alex, which is to bad because you’re missing a lot of football!
    Take the blinders off and enjoy the game …..

    9erdog, 11yrs making the comment concerning the choices that have been made by the 49er, s about Alex .check out morning tail gate OCT 2, 6th post from the top that to me shows disrespect for the family yes they’ve had there moments but look at all that they have accomplished ….

    myself: I can only give credit to old man York for handing over the reins to Jed, I’m pretty sure that Jed talked to his uncle Eddie because he seems to be doing all the right things. But the old man put us through some hard times, getting rid of Mooch made no sense at all IMHO!
    And really its not the DeB family anymore it are da Yorks, eh?

    I agree temper….how horrible would it be to hate that your team is doing well? To hate Alex Smith as a 49ers fan would be miserable….11 years is kind of like a friend of mine from way back in the day……A lot of people in his family did drugs and he always talked about how unfortunate he was for having grown up in a family like this….then years down the road his father finally made the choice to become clean and sober and really changed his life. When he would be around my friend he would talk about how grateful he is for having fought through his shortcomings and how he has accepted the lord into his life. My buddy just couldnt take it, how dare his father for having put him through hell all those years and now be grateful for it all?? Guess what? My buddy has now been sucked into a life of addiction himself. That’s what’s happening to 11 years….he’s thrived on hating Alex Smith for so long that now his whole purpose as a 49ers fan has been stolen from him. 11 years……come back to us!! your misery is over!!
