Mora Jr. also pointed out early how the Eagles' ball carriers were not securing the ball and it came out that he was right at the end. Also good thing Maclin had a hurt hammy.
Yes, this Win wasn't given to us , we went out there took it
Ronnie Brown did kind of "hand it" to us. That was the worst example of ball control I've ever seen.
i counter that with Alex's drop fumble in 9ers side of the field which lead to points

The go ahead TD drive was dominated by Gore and Hunter. The final drive when the niners simply needed a first down or two to secure the win (and the eagles were putting everyone at the LOS to stop the run, Gore still rumbled for 5 yards a carry and sealed the win.
Why can't the line block like that all the time...
Also, I know you don't like Smith, but considering who we were playing against and their strengths and weaknesses, I think Smith should be the bigger story.
We were playing against the now 1-3 eagles. That highly touted secondary has not played well this season.
After yesterdays game they give up 217 per game putting them at 11th. Not what they are paid for but still good nonetheless And like another poster said thats the best game against them this year out of Ryan, Eli and Bradford. What does a complete game matter? Is this baseball?
It matter because we can't win game very often trailing by 17 and hoping the other team implodes i.e dumb fumbles and 2 missed FG's.
Guys, I don't get this, help me out... 2nd quarter - 6:20 remaining - 2nd down and 6 to go
The throw is to VD running a 10 yard out, and we are obviously backed up up tight inside the 10. Track the pass slowly as it heads to VD. Why... why doesn't VD make any real effort to catch this?
Freeze VD when he is at the 17 yard line... then slowly watch... He had separation and room to step forward (even a couple yds) and he basically just stops... letting the defender run into the back of him... he then watches the ball, but never even reaches out his arms for it. This was an easy catch... so VD... Why?
