SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS VS. HOUSTON TEXANS GAMEDAY THREAD (Preseason Wk 2)

Maybe Jacob's has a bone bruise or some deep tissue injury. It could still a mcl or something. The hit didn't look good
Frank Gore just said that he talked to LMJ and he told him that he's fine and that he just rolled his ankle.

Added this in my stock up or down thread.... overall we were sloppy but despite that we held with them for 3 full quarters. Not to mention the Texans kept their starters in much longer and props to their fans because they treated this like a regular season game. And despite all that minus the return TD it was a 13-9 close played game. 267-279 in yards, both gave up 2 sacks, 0 ints, both teams lost 0 fumbles, total time of possession was within 8 seconds, 7-9 in penalties...

Side note: of course I don't want James or Jacobs to be out but if we had to we could ride Gore and Hunter this year again. I would give Hunter a shot at short yardage back since he runs so hard (if jacobs is out). One good thing is Hunter keeps improving and is showing he will be the future when Gore is gone.

it wasnt such a bad game considering we pulled most of our starters when they didnt.

the best part of that game was us just running pretty well vs their defense

Hunter is a beast. so far he has 6.3 YPC on 11 attempts for 70 yards.

It was during his interview on the 5th quarter.

There were weeks where I thought Hunter was better than Gore last season. I think he is going to have a big year if he gets enough carries this season.

Same. People on here keep being weird with comparisons but saying Hunter is a lot like MJD is a valid comparison. Just cause he doesn't have thick thighs doesn't make him different. I think he is an unbelievable between the tackle runner.
hunter and aj jenkins were the brightest spots of today

moss also looked good

i am very happy with how both the first team offesne and defense looked

It's gonna be painful sacrificing either JJ or Tolzien at the expense of keeping Kaepernick now.
Well, from the way it looks so far, I see Tolzien as our #2 and JJ as our #3. Don't be surprised to see Kaepernick cut or traded.

JJ will be cut

promise?
It's funny how stacked the niners are at RB when the 3rd and 4th RBs go down and it's a big deal.

No, no, like I said even though we didn't bring our A game we still held with them with our 1s and then our 2s vs their 1s... minus the punt return TD it was pretty much an evenly played game despite being on the road and playing against a hostel team and fans who wanted to win more than us.
I just hate to see anyone on the 49ers get hurt. I also hate these officials. They have to go.
Just like last year, WRs dropping balls is our curse. JJ needs to go and we need to test Tolzien against better players to see what he really has. I think he might be better than Kaep but both had WRs dropping balls left and right. JJ missed an easy TD with Jenkins today and was pretty off with most of his passes.

As weird as it may sound right now, I liked what I saw from Smith. He was actually trusting his receivers to be where they were supposed to be. Throwing well on timing routes. The WRs just need to be there next time. I can't wait to see what he does when we stop playing vanilla.

I thought moss looked good today. He was getting past defenders and besides that one bad drop he looked great I thought. I need to rewatch the game again though, emotions were running high the entire time.
Oh to add a few things: Whenever it feels like we're getting blown out... We're not. It's weird. The Ravens game felt like a blowout but was very close. Same with this one.

also very glad to hear James and Jacobs should be okay. I was loving what I saw from Jacobs. James i'm still not sure on, he hasn't been doing too much honestly. But still, we need them both to be healthy.
