Please stop it with these, "This could be our..." etc losses. It's making these forums look ridiculous and us dated.
It was simply a loss, we got beaten badly because our team had a terrible game plan that was executed very poorly.
It started from the top with the coaching and substitutions that killed our momentum on offense.
On defense, we had zero pass rush from Aldon Smith and our D-line. Our linebackers didn't make any
game changing plays, and once again...our secondary had opportunities when they weren't being burned
but dropped easy interceptions.
It was a reversion for many players to their worst nightmares. For Carlos Rogers, he dropped a super easy
interception like he used to in Washington. For Alex, he became Alex '07 under Jim Hostler. We stopped
running the ball, so the Giants kept blitzing and making it difficult to pass. They had the lead and nothing
to lose by doing it. Without a rush, Alex had to beat the Giants with his arm. The Giants took Vernon out
of the game, so the other receivers had to step up. And they didn't. You have to think that his middle
finger on his throwing arm affected his play, whatever he says about it. He hasn't had a game like this
Once again, Crabtree disappeared. Moss had a big catch over the top, but then everyone knows what happened...
CK took a huge sack immediately after that play. Has anyone noticed how CK used to just run the ball and now
he has been sitting back to pass more often? Kyle Williams didn't do jack on kickoff returns, and we gave up
a huge one to start the 2nd half. Maybe it's time we brought out the gimp aka A.J. Jenkins and see what he can do.
The thing that has kept me up is thinking about how it must feel for players to shout "Who's Got it Better Than Us?"
after a loss like this. It must feel hollow and forced. The Seahawks have a lot of momentum after beating the Packers
and Patriots. It's going to be a tough game, very physical. I hope this loss brings out the best in the Niners. The thing
is that the Seahawks are supposed to have a better defense than the Giants. But maybe the Giants just have the 49ers
number. You just know that the Seahawks are going to push all the same buttons and then some.
The Niners better be ready.
