"Additional meaning, if you can stand the naked truth: The Niners, who often fail in the red zone, failed yet again on this drive. They got to the red zone, then went backward and had to settle for a field goal. The drive was reminiscent of the awful, game-losing drive of the Super Bowl, the Niners swiftly moving down the field but not knowing how to enter the promised land.
You could say this one drive, the only drive that mattered in Thursday's game, demonstrated everything we already know about the Niners' offense — the great, the good, the ugly. It was a familiar story. I was hoping for a different ending."
