Watching the first half Sunday was exciting, but 2nd half it looked like the 9ers took their foot of the necks of the Browns. The O became stagnant, and the D somewhat the same. Yes, we were up by 7 , then 10, but against a really good team would we have won playing just good enough to win in second half? Early on, with win against SEA, I was just happy to get the W, and Ginn was responsible. We lost to Dallas, by a gnat's eyelash, then won against Eagles ...by a gnat's eyelash. We beat up Cincy, and were supposed to be underdogs to first Bucs and then Detroit. 49ers were jacked up for both those games, we played out of our skulls, (unless Bucs were way over rated, which i believe, but still not pushovers), and the Detroit game was just a thriller, with the D dominating their O and our O dominating their D(even with Suh and vandenbosch). We looked spectacular, and then came the Browns. First half our guys came to play, but 2nd half it just looked half hearted. In fact, after dominating the browns in first half, it looked like we "played down" to their level in the 2nd half.
Overlooking an opponent is not something this team has had to worry about the last 8 yrs. Now, I wonder. Redskins are not a powerhouse, but NYG are best team in East conference. I would hope that Coach Harbaugh reminds his guys not to look ahead, and when playing the Skins, if we get on top, finish them off. Once a team lets up, then it can happen again. At no time during the Bucs or Detroit games did our guys look like they were thinking about any other team. They were on a mission, and it was completed in style and with verve. I would hate to see the 9ers suddenly "play down" to the level of the Skins and get skinned. Coach has to remind his guys that all 60 minutes count and letting up, even against the Browns, is not something we should repeat.
