I guess in todays NFL, you can take what you can get.
The issues I have:
-It's more then just "sucking" and not getting pressure. We have severe disciplined/fundamental football issues. Willis getting STOOD UP after GETTING DRAGGED 5 yards is pathetic. Our guys are not getting low. Simple, fundamentals by WRAPPING it up. It seems like our D plays to high, at all three levels of the D.
-What is up with Goldson? We went all this time without allowing the big play and got burned by a guy with a broken shoulder. Goldson was all over the slot (which was already decently covered) while the outside guy ran right by everyone. WTF is Goldson doing?
-Another issue with Goldson is his shoulder throwing "tackles'--that Sh!t aint going to cut it. The bomb when Culliver fell, Goldson had a chance to TACKLE around the 5 yd line, but decided to hug/hump the WR into the endzone
-And Goldson appears to have issues with personal fouls. That is at least the second one I can remember in a tight game over complete BS. He deserves a BENCHING---Singletary to Davis Style.
-I can live with the McDonald penalty.
- Our defense is so concerned about going for the strip/INT they are not tackling. Jackson isn't going to fumble, so give it up and JUST TACKLE! You could see our guys, sometimes 4 at a time getting dragged cuz they want a strip.
-get someone else to cover the slot, cuz Rogers is old and slow and gets beat with small fast guys. Amendola made him look just plain SILLY at the 5 yard line. Amendola cut twice and had the ball in his hands before Rogers realized the ball was in play.
-Why are our guys walking around lost, putting in their mouth pieces and just plain confused?
-not too bad from Kaep, he certainly poses issues to defenses having to account for his legs.
-he doesn't really see the whole field yet and prematurely bails on the play.
-he waves that ball around in the pocket, just asking for a fumble
-Quarterbacking isn't about throwing hard, its about making the right read, getting the ball out on time, and being accurate. When he gets hurried, he tends to just RIFLE the ball (which leads to INTS)
-Gore showed up
-Where did Davis go? (Again) If the D is taking that away, we have to find a way to beat them somewhere else. (That is actually your job as a coordinator Roman)
-Someone deserves to get fired. Period. Dot. End of Story.
-Coverage units are still suspect
-Andy Lee is the only guy doing his job (with his broke ass thumb)
-TWO....not one....BUT TWO FAKE PUNTS?! Are you kidding? You were put on notice with the fake in garbage time at the end of the first half, but after that, it is inexcusable.
Harbaugh needs to fix the discipline issues (stupid, selfish penalties) and manage the game better. As a headcoach, he should have been smart emough to know that Fisher was going to pull out all the stops. Fisher tipped his hand before the first half ended and Harbaugh STILL didn't get the memo. I'm surprised they didn't Fake FG. They probably would have won the game.
