Plain and Simple Why We Lost to the Colts

+1, you could tell they were playing a brain fart of a game...down to our level. They bring their A game and this could have covered the spread easy.

I disagree. The Colts didn't have a 'brain fart'. They said that the Niners played them tough and we had pressure on Manning most of the day. He missed his targets because of the pressure, not because they were off. The Colts admitted that they knew that the game was going to be close based on how tough the Niners D looked in film.

do you give the D any credit for missing so many throws, or credit the D for sacking him 3 times when he had only been sacked twice all season.

The D deserves a lot of credit for yesterday

Yes, the D deserves a lot of credit, but not for Manning's bad throws. There were several, esp long ones, that if they'd been on the money (as they usually are), the score would have been more lopsided. It happened from the git-go, before our D could really establish itself or take any credit for pressuring him. He was just "off". The commentators mentioned it as did Tony Dungy in one of those post-game shows.
I love our D and credit them for keeping us in games when our anemic offense has faltered, but this could have been worse if Manning had his customary accuracy. The score was an illusion.

We have the talent to become a good passing team.

A) Crabtree is the #1 reciever we have not had in years
B) Vernon Davis is now what we been waiting for him to become
C) Alex Smith has shown that the game has slowed down for him
D) Jason Hill, Brandom Jones are talented 3rd and 4th recievers that need to be on the field

now if only Raye and Singletary would accept that, we might do okay.

Agreed! You'd think anyone with the cojones to bench Clements, would also do the same with Bruce and his half-a$$ effort and drops.

I'm going to have to go with "Conservative Offence Play Calling" What Smith did with 1:44 left in the 1st half, was out the window in the second half. We can't expect to beat a team like the Colts by only 2 point, unless we're scoring with 0 time left on the clock. The Niners need to start spreading it out more with 3 or 4 WR sets, and having Smith in the shotgun mode. We Spread it out more, Gore gets more room to roam. It's just that simple.

Go Niners!!

To open up the offense you need a OC that knows how to do that...Raye is not that guy, never will be and we won't see it happen until he gets canned. Sing is a rookie and is sticking to what he knows but he seems to adapt quick, maybe seeing the signs that this team is not the 80's bears.

Raye can open it up , ie Houston 2nd half, but then he shuts it down again like he's not supposed to be doing it, it's weird

I love it, a roster full of talent for a good passing team!

Oh wait, who is going to block while all this good passing team s**t is going on?
