***SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS VS. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES GAMEDAY THREAD ***

Definitely the play of the year.
I disagree.

The improve OLine play got us back in the game.

Horrible OLINE = No passing, No running, fumbles and interceptions.

An OK OLine = Giving a chance for the QB, RB and WR to make plays.

Lets hope that the OLine play would be better for 4 quarters next week.

Heard on the post game show, "can we give Ronnie Brown the game ball"
So we take one of our staples that help win us 5 super bowls and get us a TD after GB and all the other teams took it and made it their own and beat us with it. Time to start using it more often. Only problem is we don't have the greatest timing with our QBs and WRs and it can be potential easy picks.
It was a safety blitz. Morgan was the open man. Smith read it beautifully. Touchdown.

Said it before but I think he seen Owen Schmitt open and wanted to throw it back to him so he could get the TD. I doubt he was throwing it away to save the extra few yards. When he went to throw it he was getting pulled down and the ball went awry.

Actually it looks more like he wanted to throw it back to Vick.

yea he was really trying to throw it to schmitt

Either one but Vick was open too and if he gets it he is probably off to the races with everyone on the pile with Brown. Probably would have been a TD and he would have been the hero but still you just don't do it much in the NFL. Like I mentioned you only do it on planned plays like kick returns or the last play of the game on hook and ladders. Defensive players do it but they are careless with the ball. It can lead to TDs but it's also a good way to give the ball right back after getting a turnover.

It's not backyard football or a video game....

I didn't call it, as i thot our coach was inferior to theirs and i also thot their qb was a bucketload better than our Qb. I did say if JH called quick slants and outs, got the D out of the box 8 we would then free up frank for runs and 5 to 7 steppers for completions. I just figured andy reid had a huge experience advantage on us, as did vic. Vic got a total combined of 550 yds, but alex got a team win with a very impressive team total of 450 yds. He also went 9 for 9 in 3rd qtr for 193 yds, and we ultimately scored 21 unanswered points. I don't think anybody forecast that. I had us losing by 10... 3 for home field advantage , and 7 for coaching advantage and Qb advantage. Glad i was wrong, and couldn't be more pleasantly surprised.

LMAO. Same here. I've seen some dumb things happen on a football field, but that might be the worst.

the best part was how adamant he was afterward that it was an incomplete pass.

I defiantly agree, but it's more the significance of the slant being a turning point in the game. Especially now that we run a WCO. When's the last time we've seen a reciever catch it in open field, and take it to the house on a slant? Sheer YAC.

Maybe I'm just reminiscing, I dunno. As above poster stated we were the staple of the slant. Just seemed like a perfect play after all that we've been through. A little assurance.
This moment made me giggle. Let the smart a** remarks begin. http://www.nfl.com/videos/auto/09000d5d822bf86a/Is-Brown-trying-to-pass

My favorite comment from the announcers.... "uhhh I'm not sure this is in the Eagles playbook"

I thought one of the knocks on Smith is that he has trouble reading defenses...well that's what the NFL Network guys said last week.

There is already a thread on this
the toss to Hunter on the scramble was the turning point, IMO.
I thought we were gonna get crushed. Then when we got the 1 pt lead, I was sure they were gonna easily drive down the field and their rookie kicker was gonna make up for the missed FG's. Which in all likelihood would've happened if it weren't for Justin Smith!
Yeah I just realized this. 'preciate the merger. Either way this moment was worth 20 threads. Glorious.
