hold on here cowboy. we were playing a good defense on the road and a team that had to win to have any chance of being in the playoffs, so its not a horrible lost, but we need to work on some stuff for sure, the good thing is were going to play a great team with a very good defense and great QB with very good WR'S so its going to be a huge test for the 49ers. I say bring it on, we will really get to see what the 49ers are made of in this must win game. I would rather see them play a team like this now, then so losing team so we can see what the 49ers are made of. It will be a very good test of how far we can go in the playoffs. I welcome it.
I really think our TEST was the Ravens game. To play a team like that on the road in their house, we didn't pass that test. We kept the score close, yes, but we also got bullied all night and couldn't make the plays in the 4th quarter when it mattered. Exactly what AZ did to us today. Playing on the road is what it might come down to in the playoffs and the Ravens game was a true example of a "playoff"atmosphere.
Which is why winning out the rest of the season is important so we get that first round bye, a winnable game at home, with a chance to play in the NFC Championship.
that was no test, when you have a short ass wk and have to fly all the way to the east coast thats a huge disadvantage. we still couldve won the game anyways if it wasnt for that ticky tack penalty, the team showed it can hang even during the worst situations. we shouldve won todays game, theres no excuse when you start the possession on the opposing teams 6 after a punt return and only get f**king 3, you then kick another damn fg after your defense creates a turnover in the rz and once again you kick 3. this offense makes the defense go on the field so fast after constant horrible 3 and outs and not scoring damn tds, even if the d gave up 21 pts this game shouldve been a win regardless.
harbaugh and roman need to sit their f**king asses down and discuss the play calling because while at times it can be flat out gorgeous at mid field it can be down right hideous at times and especially the rz. they need to spread out opposing defenses by having 4 wide, alex in the shotgun and not having him make 1 read and throw in the rz. 1 thing im realizing is that this offense has dipped big time steadily when morgan was lost for the yr, he was as reliable a wr we have on the roster and seemed to be alex's main guy
