Trent Dilfer circa 2000
As long as he doesn't throw INT's, I'm ok. We will make the playoffs, Superbowl is another story

They weren't as sharp as before the bye...but, 5 straight wins and a 4-game lead in the NFC West is just fine, thank you. They got ripped off IMHO of a Gore TD...I saw the replay and it looked as if his elbow came down over the goal line...last time I checked, that's a TD. So, the score should've been 27-10. Anyway you slice it it's still a win when they didn't play their best...I'll take it any day.
Not pretty enough. We are 6 - 1 but just 1 - 6 in "pretty wins." So things around here must improve or heads will roll.

Alex missed some throws but we got a bit conservative and on that reverse we got too cute. We certainly aren't predictable... Harbaugh throws out a million different looks and when is the last time we used an eligible tackle as a WR? In the past regimes we use them as blockers only... we don't have them go out for a pass. Those are good plays and you can't fault a defensive player for leaving a tackle go plus they probably aren't even focused/aware of them being an eligible WR. Also, didn't like the goal line with all those runs. Should have boot legged, play action or did something different than running it up the middle 4? straight times. Someone mentioned how the next time we did bootleg so glad they changed it up and adjusted (that must have been the Crabtree td).
I'm with you on the bootleg--as I'm sure my neighbors can attest to. At points in the game you could feel our coaching staff had it in mind that they wanted to break the Browns with gut shots. To the Browns' credit, they absorbed those punches all game long and didn't break. That's going to be a scary D very soon.
They gotta watch using Sop in those short yardage situations. He misses a lot of those blocks. The offense was just stagnant in teh 2nd half. should have tried a play action pass on the goaline instead of all runs.
