1st and 10 at DAL 20 (14:55) T.Romo pass to J.Witten pushed ob at DAL 22 for 2 yards (P.Willis).
base D... Manny gets upfield well but mirrored enough beyond the QB just 1 yd ahead... Sopoaga doubled up well... Franklin gets 1 yd and then stood up by LG... Justin gets a few yds upfield but contained enough by LT... Parys in coverage... easy short throw as Willis trails TE
2nd and 8 at DAL 22 (14:21) M.Barber up the middle to DAL 24 for 2 yards (J.Smith).
base D... Manny and Parys hold outside well... Sopoaga crashes inside well... Franklin falls forward and is neutralized by OC... nice hussle by Justin coming around edge and behind RB
3rd and 6 at DAL 24 (13:39) (Shotgun) T.Romo pass short left to K.Ogletree to DAL 39 for 15 yards (N.Clements).
Nickle... nice burst Parys, but gets easily shoved past QB... Manny gets upfield but gets walled out by his man and the LT that Justin pushed back... odd, and unfortunate... deep sideline pattern, Clements a little too far behind the WR
1st and 10 at DAL 39 (13:03) M.Barber right tackle to DAL 43 for 4 yards (T.Spikes).
base D... Manny cut inside and was driven well out of the rush direction (a clear illegal block in the back)... Sopoaga doubled, loses a yd and gets walled off... Franklin crashed inside, but the guess was nowhere close to the play direction... nice fight thru tackle by TKO

base D... Manny covers TE... Sopoaga gets upfield backing up RT... Franklin gets a 3 yd push on OC... Justin gets very close to QB as ball comes out (3-3.5 seconds)... nice stunt late by Parys, gets to QB just after ball release

Nickle D... nice crash in from Haralson as the ILBs stunt blitz to his side... good pocket composure from Romo. Decent trail coverage by Nate... Roman looks like he knows he screwed up somehow. Yep, replay shows Roman out of position inside.
1st and 10 at SF 36 (11:39) T.Romo pass incomplete deep left to P.Crayton [J.Smith]. Pass out of bounds at the SF 5; Bly closest defender; Romo forced from the pocket.
base D... Manny in coverage... Haralson, nothing impressive on rush... OL shut down our DL rush completely... TKO misses Romo on nice middle blitz (Romo has deceptively good pocket skills)... Justin comes free to get in Romo's face, but after the throw
2nd and 10 at SF 36 (11:32) (Shotgun) T.Romo pass incomplete short right to K.Ogletree. Pass incomplete out pattern at the SF 22; Clements closest defender.
base D... Manny shows nice burst but can't overpower or get by RT... Sopoaga and Franklin get smushed in together, Franklin ends up on his face quickly... Justin gets doubled out... poor throw
3rd and 10 at SF 36 (11:27) (Shotgun) T.Romo pass short middle to J.Witten to SF 31 for 5 yards (D.Bly). Pass complete on slant.
Nickle D... good burst rush from Parys, but is a little wide of QB, and can't circle back in time... nothing much from Manny... RayMac (at LDT) gets a 2 yd push, but is stoned... Justin (at RDT) and Manny get brief doubles from left side... bullet pass + tight coverage from Bly
4th and 5 at SF 31 (10:45) (Field Goal formation) N.Folk 49 yard field goal is GOOD, NULLIFIED by Penalty, Center-L.Ladouceur, Holder-M.McBriar. 0 0

1st and 10 at SF 20 (10:31) S.Hill pass short right to F.Gore pushed ob at SF 28 for 8 yards (A.Spencer). Pass complete flat.
good, quick pass to Gore on lil swing route in the backfield... OL looked fine... Gore looking sleek and quick for Rac yds
2nd and 2 at SF 28 (10:08) F.Gore right tackle to SF 33 for 5 yards (G.Sensabaugh; B.James).
Beautiful crushing block by Staley... Wragge falls down halfway to second level, does nothing... Heitmann loses initial yd but anchors back in time... nice 2nd level blocking from Rachal... Sims initially does enough, but fails to maintain his block... VD and DWalk do enough on their outsides, but DWalk was a little lazy on his... hard, decisive run for Gore
1st and 10 at SF 33 (9:29) F.Gore right guard to SF 36 for 3 yards (B.James; K.Brooking).
Ware beat Staley inside on the rush up middle... Wragge did fine there... Heitmann and Rachal did well enough in getting some push... not much for Sims... nice initial and then 2nd level block from VD... fair lead block by Norris
2nd and 7 at SF 36 (8:48) S.Hill pass short left to M.Robinson to SF 47 for 11 yards (K.Brooking). Pass complete on quick out; 3-step
super quick pass to MRob coming out of FB spot... great call, as the heavy blitz cleared out that side
1st and 10 at SF 47 (8:07) F.Gore left tackle to DAL 48 for 5 yards (K.Brooking; B.James).
not an impressive job blocking by Staley or FB DWalk that time... Wragge did his job, and Morgan kept scrapping... Heitmann missed his 2nd level block, and was a big problem there. Nice looking cut and run for Gore
2nd and 5 at DAL 48 (8:07) PENALTY on DAL-J.Ratliff, Encroachment, 5 yards, enforced at DAL 48 - No Play.
1st and 10 at DAL 43 (7:06) S.Hill pass incomplete to I.Bruce [K.Brooking]. Pass incomplete at the Dallas 25; Newman closest defender.
Staley was losing the edge battle on Ware, but he did have nice RB help from Gore to block... Wragge did his job fine again... Heitmann lost a lil ground but kept getting it done... solid job by Rachal... Sims very nearly gave up a sack, but managed to keep his man from Hill... a delayed ILB blitz smacked Hill after 4 seconds from the snap. Horribly inaccurate throw to a wide open Bruce.
2nd and 10 at DAL 43 (7:00) S.Hill pass incomplete deep middle to V.Davis. Pass incomplete at the Dallas 24; Brooking was the closest defender.
nice protection from Staley... Heitmann got beat on a move, but Wragge helped him out... Rachal and Sims were going backward, but giving time... 3 second pass was overthrown to a leaping VD ( fully stretched out) over the middle. Replay showed that the ball was also thrown well behind VD, but he made a good adjustment to give it a chance
3rd and 10 at DAL 43 (6:55) (Shotgun) F.Gore left tackle to DAL 39 for 4 yards (B.James). Play run out of the Wildcat formation.
one of those goofy taser "give up draws"... fail

Dallas Cowboys at 6:14 SFO DAL
1st and 10 at DAL 20 (6:14) M.Barber up the middle to DAL 22 for 2 yards (A.Franklin).
camera is late... base ... I see the DL and Manny holding up well at the LOS... our DL did a nice job there on the run
2nd and 8 at DAL 22 (5:39) M.Barber left end to DAL 28 for 6 yards (D.Goldson).
Franklin gets walled off from the run direction.... kept slowly working his way over... Justin penetrated inside taking him out of the play... same for Parys, who cut inside, only to remove himself... Willis got abused (yes, it sadly happened) by a penetrating OG... nice job by TKO and Goldson to converge.
Timeout #1 by SF at 05:06.
3rd and 2 at DAL 28 (5:06) M.Barber left tackle to DAL 31 for 3 yards (D.Goldson; D.Bly).
camera is late again... they show Bly and Goldson to meet the RB, but he powers forward anyway for the 1st down. replay shows Franklin lose a yard initially, but surges back, though it's not near the RB... Justin takes the double, while Parys crashed hard inside, but takes himself out of play...
1st and 10 at DAL 31 (4:33) T.Romo pass incomplete short right to M.Austin. Pass incomplete sideline at the 38; Clements closest defender.
base D... Manny gets upfield 5 yds, tries to cut it inside to QB, but takes a shove from RT sending him back... Sopoaga gets nowhere from a single... Franklin goes nowhere from a double... Justin beats his LT and reaches just missing Romo, who rolls away from him
2nd and 10 at DAL 31 (4:24) T.Romo pass incomplete short left to M.Austin (D.Bly). Pass incomplete at the Dallas 45 sideline.
base D... Manny gets doubled... gives up? and turns to find someone to cover? (probably sensed a screen)... Sopoaga and Franklin go nowhere with 3 OL taking turns on them... (Justin takes a breather) and Evans does nothing positive...nice coverage and dive attempt by Bly
3rd and 10 at DAL 31 (4:17) (Shotgun) T.Romo pass deep middle to M.Austin to SF 47 for 22 yards (D.Goldson).
SF sends the 3 DL... Haralson takes a double before getting shoved away... RayMac takes a double, then triple... Justin takes initial double... nearly 7 seconds for Romo
Timeout #2 by SF at 03:38.
1st and 10 at SF 47 (3:38) T.Romo pass short right to M.Austin to SF 37 for 10 yards (M.Roman). Pass complete on quick out sideline.
base D (Balmer at LDE, Sop at RDE)... quick WR screen... Franklin falls on his face... Balmer shows nice quickness to QB, but ball is out... Bly gets pushed in the back (no flag)... bad mistackle by Nate, who was playing FAR off that WR....
1st and 10 at SF 37 (3:04) F.Jones up the middle to SF 35 for 2 yards (N.Clements).
base D... Franklin painfully crushed down by a double... Balmer with good penetration, but RB is already beyond him... Sopoaga holds up well, but can't get over to the RB... Manny fights off block, but not in time to get RB next to him... TKO misses leg tackle... Willis blows up lead blocker, and flows amazingly to RB... strong tackle from Clements
2nd and 8 at SF 35 (2:19) T.Romo pass deep right intended for K.Ogletree INTERCEPTED by M.Roman [P.Haralson] at SF 4. M.Roman to DAL 39 for 57 yards (A.Gurode). Pass intercepted on flag pattern.
base D... all DL get nicely stoned... Manny beats RT around edge, but gets pushed away from Romo last second... Parys cuts it inside on FB block and gets in the face of Romo just after the horrible throw
San Francisco 49ers at 2:03 SFO DAL
1st and 10 at DAL 39 (2:03) S.Hill pass incomplete deep middle to I.Bruce. Pass incomplete on slant at the Dallas 16; Scandrick closest defender.
OL gives Hill time... I honestly have no idea who this pass was going to... Either a micommunication or the worst underthrown pass I have ever witnessed
2nd and 10 at DAL 39 (1:57) (Shotgun) F.Gore up the middle to DAL 37 for 2 yards (M.Spears). Wildcat formation with Robinson at quarterback.
more crappy wildcat... fail
3rd and 8 at DAL 37 (1:19) (Shotgun) S.Hill pass short left to F.Gore to DAL 37 for no gain (M.Jenkins). Pass complete flat.
OL giving Hill time... All did well for a few seconds, but Heitmann's man beat him eventually... safe dumpoff to Gore in the flat
4th and 8 at DAL 37 (:42) (Punt formation) A.Lee punts 31 yards to DAL 6, Center-B.Jennings, downed by SF-M.Robinson.
Dallas Cowboys at 0:31 SFO DAL
1st and 10 at DAL 6 (:31) F]Jones up the middle to DAL 19 for 13 yards (M.Roman).
Very strange... after the SF punt, it goes to commercial, and comes back whenthere is 11:27 left in the 2nd quarter. WTF happened to the in between, NFL Network???
guess that's the end of my 1st Quarter
