Dunno if this explains it a little more or not, but he was in tears as being carted off the field.

He may know something.

indeed, he does....

Doesn't matter if he completely fails in the most important game of his life.

He took a complete s**t during and every game following New England.

PFF backs me up:

For much of the first half it looked like the old Chris Culliver had returned and that his recent struggles were behind him. Prior to the 49ers' Week 15 trip to New England, Culliver had accumulated a coverage grade of +9.4 and had yielded only 50 yards in a game twice all season. Over the 49ers' final six games, however, Culliver's coverage grade was -5.4 and he yielded at least 65 yards in coverage in all bar one matchup. Early on in this one Culliver was getting his hands to passes (two pass defenses) and generally had his assignment on lockdown, but when Jacoby Jones got free for his long TD all bets were off. For the game, Culliver gave up a career-high 123 yards, at more than 30 yards per completion, and conceded his third touchdown in five games. Combined with conceding a pivotal pass interference penalty, this was a game, and a week, for Culliver to forget.

I won't miss him with Asomugha on board.
next man up, hopefully he consentrates on the mental reps and improves next season

I have been skeptical of a repeat performance of 2012-2013 this year due to the improbability that the team could remain as healthy as in previous years. The 49ers have been very, very fortunate to avoid major injuries to key personnel the last couple of years. At some point, the law of averages catch up with you. It is a shame as the team is set in good position to make a run again, but I think this is just the beginning of bad luck in 2013. The curse of the losing Super Bowl team.

I don't agree with the curse threory, but I do beleive that the team has been very lucky with injuries. This could be year that luck runs out.

If you put energy into anything it will happen. Staying away from negativity is a job unto itself. I try to live in the spirit of Teddy Roosevelt's philosophy, "Do the best you can, with what you have, wherever you are".

This just really gets under my skin. I'm convinced that players are going to have to somehow be forced to keep in better shape during the off-season. Every year about this time players start dropping like flies because they sit on their asses for months and then come to camp.

Ya, knee injuries are totally the result of being out of shape.

The example was laid out by JR... Jerry Rice stayed in shape all year round (but didn't go too hard in the off season) and hardly got injured in his long tenure. Rice knew how to condition.
Tough for Cully. Really gonna need that raiders Nnamdi to show up

We will over come. Thanks for the warning, btw.

Indeed. You are very welcome. It was well deserved. Let me know if you want more.

Yeah but they don't count
What a rotten break. I hate pre-season. I know the guys need to work on their timing, conditioning and all that, but man, it SUCKS to lose a guy you were hoping would contribute before the games even begin to mean something.
