Just came back from the game.
Some impressions of the game from my vantage point.
First of all 99% of the niner fans represented by not leaving until the finaly tackle
OL and DL - We were getting manhandled out there. You can see it happening right at the snap of the ball. It looks like the niners were standing in mud.
Especially the OLine.
CK - Crowd excited when he came in then when people found out that it was going to be more than 1 play and alex could be out, everybody had the same reaction --- oh nooooo.. CK played as expected. This was a game we needed our defense and special teams to win it for us. (we all know what the special teams did. In case they didnt show it on TV there were no running lanes being created in the return game)
For somebody who has a strong arm CK surely was reluctant to cut it loose.
Receivers: Now this one you can see clearly in the stadium. NOBODY was getting open, which is really shameful because they were up against the Rams secondary. A couple of times the receivers did not help CK. They need to come back to him and make themselves a target. He is not going to throw it 50 yards especially when he is in trouble. Come back 20 yards and find empty space.
Defense - you can clearly see Rams getting open or see what they are about to do. Niners couldn't tackle a few times. Also the played passively on occassion. Especially on that play Jackson lost his helmet. That happen in front of me and you just knew it was going to happen since the defenders where flat footed and Jackson had momemtum.
Again, It was so freaking loud up to the final play - good job niner fans.
To Niner season ticket holders - please try to sell (maybe even take less money) to Niner fans. There were a few Rams fans around us. Also in another section 2 friends - one Raider fan and the other a Rams fan - really, somebody sold their ticket to a Raider and Rams fan?
