We played a ZONE after we were killing them with man coverage in the first half.
Aldon Smith was in COVERAGE half the time. WTF is that?
After the Patriots tied the game, THEN Fangio goes back to the defense we were playing in the first half. So guess what? We STOP them.
THEN Roman goes back to what worked in the first half. So guess what? We throw a TD to Crabtree.
The strategy of playing "not to lose" that we used for most of the second half could have easily cost us the game and then turned the webzone into a tornado of 49er fans and flying s**t.
