I don't know about most of you, but for me, it seems like we won for some reason. Maybe it's due to the fact that we actually saw signs of life from this anemic offense for the first time all season. 21 points in one half! We haven't seen that from our offense in a LONG time. Our defense did a good job, practically shutting down Houston in the second half, but they gave up Slaton's big run that probably clinched the game for the Texans.
This game showed us a lot of things:
1) Crabtree and VD are absolute studs. Morgan is taking the downgrade very well and is still making a contribution.
2) Alex Smith is indeed a phoenix. Boy is going to rise from the ashes, baby!
3) Isaac Bruce needs to sit down and have Morgan upgraded. I don't care if he's a sure-fire HOF'er. He certainly isn't playing like one, and shouldn't play just cause of what he did in the past. What have you done lately?
4) Our defense will be very good once we get our offense to not go 3 and out every drive. They get gassed too early in the game and can't hold in the 4th quarter when they have to. Just like today.
Have at it!!
i think everyone that is doubting the 9ers needs to read your post-GREAT POST MAN!
I agree completely the D showed in the 2nd half when they are given a chance they can really play. They only gave up 17 pts you cannot count the TD after Battle's fumble. And that's not bad at all.
VD is becoming one of the best TE's in the game, he is a complete player now and we need to make it a priority to get him involved in the game early.
Crabtree showed us a little bit of everything, route running, hands, leaping ability. I can't wait to see this develope some chemistry w/Smith. I think by next year this kid is going to be among the best Fitz,Johnson,Moss
Smith came in and gave us exactly what we needed a QB that can move around the pocket and throw the ball down field. face it the OL sucks so we need a QB that can make things happen and Hill just isn't it.
the one negative is that the OL is no where near where it needs to be, Heitmann, Staley are good Baas/Rachal suck and Pashos is avg at best and is now hurt (please don't be serious!)
we need to give serious consideration to signing Jon Runyan even if Pashos turns out to be ok. I live about an hour south of Philly and have watched him his entire career and this guy is very good. i have read articles saying he is healthy we need to sign him now! we also need to look out there and see if anyone could possibly be an upgrade at OG even if it's just a small upgrade we need to do it.
i truly believe our season is on the brink here, the cards will lose tonight to the giants and we will still be tied for d.lead at 3-3 owning the tie breaker for now. if we found our qb in smith or at least signifigantly upgraded the position for the season like i belive we have then we need to try and protect him. he has the weapons in vd/crabtree/gore/morgan
we also need to bench bruce who cares that he is a legend he isn't doing anything now. play crabtree and morgan and deactivate spurlock and give jones/j.hill a chance as well. hill proved he can make plays last year and jones was our top fa signing this year I'M READY TO SEE THESE GUYS NOW!
