Today was not on the QB by a long shot. He played well. The one interception was a tipped ball. Even Brett Favre or Peyton Manning can get a tipped ball. Just a freak thing that happens. Overall he played a pretty good game. Alex is not the reason we lost. And to be honest he looks a lot better than he ever did lately as compared with the past.


actually, the INT was Alexs fault but the loss wasn't

You don't think the highly touted WR could have made a little better attempt at that ball? He put one hand up in a half hearted attempt. JUMP dammit! Leave your feet and get off the ground and put both hands up. It's the kind of thing VD used to do all the time in his earlier days. Put one hand up in a half hearted attempt.

The pass wasn't perfect but it was catchable IMO with a better effort. The effort was pathetic. I'd say 50% QB and 50% WR on that one.

he did lunge out. Crabtree has only shown great hands but Alex was off on other passes as well. It was a bad throw.

Every announcer or post game host I've heard make a comment about this int all said basically the same thing: It was not too good of a throw by Alex but not too good of an attempt by Crabtree to catch what was probably a catchable ball.

And that's the way I saw it-on both of them.
It seems the haters on the zone keep grinding away on this int,it happens to QB's get over it.Manning was off today as well.

Alex would've given the 49ers a very good chance of winning against a great team
had Raye opened up the offense.

Safety and OL have to be addressed in the draft and free agency period this off season. Just that we hung with one of the top teams in the league shows how far this team has come, I know you like to complain Z, but progress is being made. I think if we had a little bit better offensive line, we would be one of the top teams. It is no small thing to keep Peyton Manning out of the end zone for a whole 60 minutes, after Staley went down, I knew we were in for trouble. With the offense moving the sticks more often, the defense didn't get tired and we were able to keep the game respectable. If you had told me yesterday morning we would lose Staley and still keep the game close, I would have asked you if you had some of that for sale, cause it must be some chronic. We are closer to being a very good team than some of you see.


This. Add a passrushing OLB along with that safety and we could be downright great on defense. Fix that Oline and maybe offensive philosophy and skys the limit on that side as well. We're pretty damn close, it's just discouraging to think we might not make it happen this season.

How does losing badly help us in the future, outside of draft slot considerations?

I'd rather be 7-9 or 8-8 but moving in a positive direction that gives us hope for the future.

The Saints last year were 8-8, and look at them now.

I am just happy we may have found a solid QB to lead this team, which is a pivotal step in becoming a good, competitive team.
ZRF...you are right...Shanahan's the guy for our team. Holmgren wouldn't be bad, but I think he'd be a better GM than field boss. Shanahan would FIX our offense...look back at his career in Denver...top OL's, great production out of his RB's, imaginative offense. We have to break out of this conservative crap...Martz is too extreme, that's why he's not coaching in the league now. But, Shanahan...he's a Walsh disciple, and would be a natural fit in SF. A lot of things would change...major reworking of OL and RB's, but those are things we all know we need. We just need the right guy to pull the trigger, another thing we know Shanahan wouldn't be shy about doing.

I appreciate the positives Singletary has brought...but, I can't support him as the long-term answer as our head coach. Jed needs to cut his losses...because despite all the talk about the playoffs, it's just a pipe dream 'til this team figures out how to close games out. I really don't see that happening under Singletary...I really don't.

LOL.

We are not even close to the Saints talent level. We have a long way to go to be that good.

More of a PEP RALLY TIMEOUT guy and DROPPED PANTS HALFTIME MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER...

We need somebody who really understands the X's and O's and has a strategy and a plan for the future.

No doubt. But to have a solid QB can go a long way. And of course to keep the solid QB on his feet we need an o-line, which we better address this offseason.

I think Alex has made big strides. He's played well in the last 2 games. He's not our problem anymore. But we certainly have other ones.

No doubt. OL, CB, S, Pass Rusher, returners.

Shanahan leaves and Broncos go 6-1.

SD, you're absolutely right, and I can't think of anyone better with the X's and O's than Shanahan. It's time for a BOLD move by our management...the team can and should be better...I just don't see that happening w/Singletary. Imagine what our offense could be like w/Shanahan at the controls...because he'd insure a much-improved OL, better corps of RB's, and a lot of innovation and imagination. We're arguably a couple of stud players from being an elite defense, so Shanahan could focus on the O and get the team over the hump. A Walsh disciple comes home...it's perfect.

We can't go anywhere with singFRAUD. DROPPED PANTS HALFTIME MOTIVATIONAL SPEECHES only go so far.

We would be super lucky to land Shanahan. He could do amazing things with the players we have.

One thing is for sure, if we had Shanahan, we would NOT lead the league in 3 n' outs.

I think Singletary is better suited to be a defensive coordinator or something. I'm beginning to think he isn't HC material. So, if we miss the playoffs and end up with a losing record, I'm all for hiring Shanahan.
We're doing fine. We're a young team and need to gel and mature. It will happen over the course of the season. I swear it's always doomsday around here.

And on the menu tonight in 49er chat:

Whineburgers, French Cries, and Hater Tots.
