Nit-picking after the win:
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?
I think the ball was on the low side when it got to him, may be to his knees. Also by Vernon's body language, he might have felt the defender closing on the ball, so he tried to shield the ball from the DB , less it's a pick. Careful and smart play by Vernon I think. That close to the goal line err on the side of safe.
I live in Philly and it's been hilarious listening to the radio stations this morning. A little upsetting too cause they won't give any credit to the niners.
People at work know I'm a niners fan and nobody wants to talk to me about the game. I'm a Navy LT and their boss, so they are trying to behave and not engage me. Meanwhile, I'm walking around with a huge smile on my face and can tell that they just want to tell me to go f**k myself.
I just wanted to throw some appreciation out to Jim Tomsula without starting an official appreciation thread. I don't remember exactly what play during the game it was but coach Tomsula got fired up after a big stop, and his energy on sidelines got me fired up and I came flying up off the couch to celebrate with him!! Coach Harbaugh seemed to love his energy too! I can only imagine how awesome it must be to play for him if what he brings can excite a fan sitting in his living room to fly off the couch and make an ass of himself! Loved it! GO NINERS!

I'm guessing you were joking. But in case you're not, we all know that's a throwback. I have a Montana and Young jersey that are only a few years old. I'm sure in Philly they still sell Cunningham jerseys.
