More than anything, we have the Rams' coaching staff to thank for this tie. Fisher calling timeout with 1:13 left in the 4th is probably the only reason we had enough time to tie it up. Then the illegal receiver and delay of game penalties.

thank god, someone who can see this for what it is

I respectfully disagree
I am struggling to understand how this is any better than a loss. It means we are 2-0-1 in the division which is as good as 2-1-0. At least then we wouldn't have set up a huge rematch with the Rams near the end of the season in their house.
Their back was against the wall for the Rams at 3-5 going into this game. You don't want to go 3-6. Not surprising about the Rams fight today. Just expected a bit more with our guys, especially with our defense. And losing Smith hurt. But Kaep did OK once he settled into the game.

Disagree. They came out ready to play and we didn't. It's as simple as that. We got caught looking past them and at the Bears game next week. The Rams wanted to make this a statement game and we took every punch they threw. Don't expect to see a Rams team like this when the rematch comes around. And expect to see a highly motivated 49er team that doesn't fall behind by two touchdowns in the first quarter.
I do think the defense needs to probably stop reading its press clippings. This is the second time this season that Dick B. Soft has shown up in the locker room. I dearly hope it's the last.
