SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS VS SEATTLE SEAHAWKS GAMEDAY THREAD (Week 6)

Wow, Seattle is now 0-3 in the division.
People went crazy on the "Randy Moss was wide open," play where Alex threw the pick (even Gore was pointing!) after Mayock went so heavy on it, but every angle I've looked at he was under duress, had no window, and there was no easy pass to him. I'd have preferred he just throw it away, run, or take a sack, but he was trying to be aggressive rather than passive, a criticism people constantly pepper him with.

doesn't cut it and is designed to provoke a response. If you dislike the dude, make a compelling argument and not a short response. You may not see it as a problem, but it creates them for other posters who will feel the need to respond.

Alex Smith can't see anything!! A wide open Randy Moss and he throws a pick! He is what is holding this offense back! Gore was awesome as usual If we finally get a QB we will be dangerous on both sides of the ball.

must agree it been years alex just does'nt got that IT like joe and steve. I'M like waiting for the next great one ! WHEN and WHO?

Because returning a punt after a safety allows the seahawks to try and force a fumble and take it back or recover it, and there is more chance for injury on special teams plays. Harbaugh took the ball back because he knew he could just kneel it and secure the game knowing seattle had no timeouts.

They wouldn't punt deep but drop kick onside attempt.

We are discussing. Stop going back to the 'excuse' card. Not excusing the poor play of Smith at all. We are discussing the game so the the holding of our receiver was part of it. If you stop cookie cutting into the game being all of Smith's fault long enough, maybe I will discuss the game further with you. Being sincere here.

That was an excuse, no way around it. Alex Smiths last 2 games, 300 yards, 1 td, 4 interceptions.

He had EVERYTHING working in his favor today and he couldn't make the seahawks pay. The first pass of the day was off target, and thats a rehersed play with Crabtree wide open in the flat. He was horrible on all but one drive. Not good enough any way you look at it.

This game was so tacking fix its not even funny. Why in the world would harbaugh gave up the points when it is a safety with less than a minute left. The spread was 8 pts and the 9ers would have covered. Either harbaugh is betting against his team or he is the biggest idiot in the world.

LOL, you think Harbaugh cares about a spread? Obviously, you bet on the game or you wouldn't call him an idiot. By the way like I told the other angry guy always buy points to put it under 7 if it's 7.5 You do realize after a safety they would be up 9 BUT Seattle could squib punt the ball and if it went 10 yards they could recover it. They still have to get a TD and a FG with an onside in there in like 50 seconds but teams have come close to doing that before. All it takes is one blown assignment. With what he did after he was told they were short all we had to do was take a knee. Plus there is a chance of injury on those plays where nobody has ever been hurt on a kneel down.

I don't think he could see Moss through the traffic and the guys up front. Maybe he had an idea where Moss maybe but didn't see him until late on the scramble. Should he have had better vision on that .... maybe. Some times qb can see it, some times they don't.

We escaped with a win but if we don't step it up we will lose these divisional games on the road

Alex probably thought when he was pointing to Moss that he was calling for the ball. Probably an excuse but really a guy with his arms up 99,999/100,000 is calling the ball.

You can.

I've seen it done . It was drop kicked since you can't use a tee

You can squib it and if it goes 10 yards it's live. And if you don't drop kick it you could also punt it as a line drive squib and let it bounce around.

Do you guys ever go back through the gameday threads and make retro-active warnings/bannings? Sometimes it seems like some really obnoxious things may get lost in the flood of posts in the gameday threads.

Heat of the moment frustration, I feel it all the time.
