Guys relax... it sucks, I am shocked, but we have to remain positive. It's early in the season. We gave away a game on the road against a tough team many are expecting to be super bowl contenders. We're 2-1 and get the lambs next week. We have a great chance to be 3-1 and lead our division. This is a crushing defeat, there are some things to fix definatley, but it's becoming more clear that we are for real. These kind of losses happen to both good teams and bad, but now it's time to bounce back and show our perseverance.

Exactly! Hopefully Arizona and Carolina both have a loss today. That would atleast help me through the week.

Yeah, I would like to add the Raiders to that list, especially considering my obnoxious boss felt like it would be a good time to call and gloat. f**kin a*****e.

I would like to echo this sentiment.

For anyone angry with the last 3 run plays, are you kidding me? Let's say you pass on 3rd and you don't convert, now you're giving the vikings a time out on their drive down the field, which as you saw, was hard enough to defend with them having 0 timeouts.


I don't know how to explain the loss, it was a miracle on their part.

But the run plays were expected, a play-action pass wouldn't have been.

Echo some of the points made on here. Its okay the run being our base but we were getting some joy in the air. We pushed them back 80 yards by mixing it up. Are we so poor we cant push them back 10? 1 first down and it would have been enough.

Raye and I suspect Coach Sing too need to realise winning doesn't always have to be ugly.

not the point you at least try to get the first u dnt just give up and give them the win. we blew it that last drive with out playcalling plain and simple man.

And if Hills threw a pick you guys would be all over Raye regardless. Straight hatin!

no thats the play you make to win ask any winning head coach and they would have thrown for the first thats how u win close games. you can win if you dnt try to win.

A team that has a s**tty defense would throw it on 3rd down. Ask any GOOD coach in the league.

With the Viking TOs....our last thre and out bled about 20 seconds off the clock.

I totally agree. I might understand running on 1st down as well as 2nd, but when it comes to 3rd and 6, take a chance and throw the ball. The reward seems greater than the risk to me.

If Roman could lay a hit on the guy then he wouldn't have caught it!

You realize you're talking about Roman right? The guy that's always in a trailing position?
i learned two things today, one i think shaun hill should get respect around the league now.

2. crabtree can take a hike, we don't need him to win. In fact i say niners should cut off all contact with this clown, its a distraction we don't need, time to move on.

what a great game. what a gutty performance but the Niners.

It f**king hurts and sucks total ass that we lost, but to lose on a desperation play, on the road, to a Super Bowl contender having their home opener? Really, not bad at all. we played our asses off and we'll get our revenge in the playoffs.



Your right. But we had that game in our hands. Damn I have prevent defense.

we certainly should've just keep doing what we were doing defensively and playing the receivers tight. But really that was an amazing catch and the coverage was decent. Not much else we could have done about that. If Smith gets a step more inside and Manny gets there a second sooner, the game would have been over.

I agree. we could have played things a little differently. maybe the play calling with 1:30 left to go was too conservative. You should be thinking you can't give the ball back to Favre with that much time left. But we showed a hell of a lot of NAD going into the Metrodome and standing up to the Vikes that way. Singletary has got this team believing in themselves.

Actually no, if Hill throws a pick it wouldn't have been Raye's fault.

Plus, If no one was open for Hill to throw to all he had to do was run or take a sack. It's not rocket science.

Fire Raye.
