Your impressions from game 3

Originally posted by verb1der:
Considering the offense was missing our main weapons, I felt Smith and offense played better than I expected and was productive, especially with clock management. I believe they owned TOP in the 2nd quarter. And btw, Delanie Walker is a luxurious threat for a backup TE.

I am not concerned at all with the defense. Pre-season comes with no game-planning and once Manusky and this defense is focused on a game plan. They can frustrate QB's such as Peyton Manning last season where they had to go to a trick play to get a score. But I can't lie, M. Lewis is starting to concern me.

Do you have time to explain? As far as I remember Lewis was beat on one play and that was against Zach Miller. Zach Miller is a very good player and was the Gaiders leading reciever last year. Lewis was in position, he just got out muscled by a very big TE. Who would you say is a better option? Reggie "I just got burned with 40 seconds left on the clock" Smith or Taylor "Still raw rookie looking for a big hit, but hasn't done squat" Mays? Lewis in my opinion is the least of our problems until his next concussion.
''Ow...my neck......my back......my neck and my back! Help me Al Davis! I'm suing for a hundred and thirty MILLION!.........or......We can settle this for only 7 milli.''




''waaahhhhhhh waaaahhhh teh refs are on the niners' side, Rice is the 4th raider to enter the Hall of fame, along with Ronnie Lott. Waaaahhhh.''












That's my impression.

You have a good point. I think it's just me expecting M. Lewis's skills to be on the down slide bcz of his age. But like I said, it's just a "concern" I'm not calling anyone to start over him.
btw I was at the game, and was extremely proud of all the Niner fans showing up. Some hardcore peeps up there wearing Niner jerseys in the black hole. Props!
Its sad that what Alex did yesterday counts as a "good" performance. I need to stop watching other NFL teams so my view of Alex can be skewed.

All you have to do is stop watching the Packers and you'll be ok.
Good game. Alex looked really good and if he can do what he did today we might win this division. Also, anybody notice who got that block to set Adams free on that PR? It was Michael Robinson, he just held onto his roster spot.

I saw them going crazy on the punt-return touchdown, props for wearing niner gear in the black hole!
the starting o-line's run blocking was a little suspect imo, wasn't getting any push on the right side.

Plus there were too many penalties.
tarrel brown seemed soft in coverage

This will probably be his last year. We have younger guys right behind him and his salary will be very large next year.

It already is large this year. Between $5M and $6M, I believe. That's too much for a one-dimensional (run stopping) safety.

How the hell is a 105.7 passer rating bad?

He started out slow on the first 2 drives, but then after that went 7 for 10, over 100 yards and a TD. He was good i thought
