SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS VS. DENVER BRONCOS GAMEDAY THREAD (Preseason Wk 1)

- Second team wide receivers didn't get open and ran poor routes
- AJ Jenkins doesn't look like a player. He played many snaps, got open only twice, fumbled, got blown up on a block, and simple fell down on a cut with no one near him.
- Tolzien has a funny throwing motion and the ball doesn't come out fast. He didn't play well and got no help from the WRs. I have always been a fan but I want to see what BJ Daniels has.
- Okoye looked like a beast. Then they snapped the ball and he got pushed back five yards out of the play.
- McDonald did his best impression of Delanie Walker; awesome catch one play, easy drop another.

- Starting OLine unit opened up holes!
- Aldon looks like he is back from his injury.
- Even though Reid wasn't challenged in coverage, he is a beast in run support. He is decisive, lightning fast, and brings the lumber. If his coverage skills are as good, we will have one heck of a player.
- Haralson played like a man on a mission after missing a year. He is the backup we needed last year.
- Dixon is going to make the team. He ran with force and played all over the place.
- Schmidt has wheels running down the returner to prevent the touchdown.
- Ian Williams looks like the real thing, getting big time push on every play.
- Not sure why Fangio was crapping on Nnamdi. He covered and defensed the run well. He just looks big for a corner and matched up well against the bigger Denver receivers.
- Austin Collie ran good, clean routes. He looked good against the third string defenders but a good route is a good route.
- Lemonier looks like an Aldon clone. His long arms and wingspan are noticeable from a distance.

Nice 1st post
Anything from Trent Robinson?

i agree with all of this, if AJ can't show some significant improvement next week then i'm going to start seriously doubting him

oh and chad hall looked very solid

Played on D in the 4th. Failed to fill a running lane on one of Denver's big runs. Came back and made a nice play in run support a play or two later. Didn't notice much other than that.

Yeah Nnamdi's roster spot is in jeopardy (big time) if he's not playing left corner in our nickel packages by our third preseason game. If Fangio is more comfortable with Tramaine Brock in that role that says a lot.

If that's the case, top-tier defenses like the Seahawks I think are going to be forced to play way more honestly if they're going to stop plays from the 49ers' offense. :)

Reid was looking solid out there, I was impressed, ditto for Lemonier. McDonald is not looking too bad, but A.J. Jenkins I think is going to need to do something, and he needs to do it FAST, or else I don't see him being on the 49ers' roster for much longer.

Just think Kap did what he did without Gore or Hunter in and of course no Crabtree.

I can dig it.

I love a QB that can adapt and make whoever goes out for a catch look good in the process. If he keeps going like this, it'll finally put an end to the Kaepernick doubters' and the "we should have kept Alex" crowd.

Right, because THIS is the offense we are going to be running in the regular season? Dink and dunk all the way, right? Did you miss it? (all the dinking and dunking)? Harbs and Kaep were out there messing around. Just taking a stroll. A relaxing day at the park. This offense was idling in first gear and drove right through the starting Denver D. The rest of the league better be scared when Gore gets in the lineup. This is no dink and dunk offense. This is the most prolific offense in the league. If you miss three and outs maybe you should get the NFL ticket and watch some KC games.

Alex is sooooooo efficient. Oh, look! he checked it down again for two yards! We are punting, but his completion percentage is 70%

AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

What I'm saying is our first team offense so far is looking a LOT more diversified on top of what we had last year. We all know Alex couldn't bomb it to save his life, and Kaepernick is now trusting the short pass game, something Maiocco said was an issue last year between guys like CK and VD.

Kaepernick adapting to change with Crabtree out and being successful in it is going to be HUGE this season, which is why I'm happy to see this, even if it was only for one series. A polished, complex offense is going to cause fits for opposing defenses, because now they have to account for the entire team being playmakers, and not just selling out against one, two, or three guys.

I'm excited to see what happens when all our starting WRs get back in the mix.

I thought he played a hell of a game. You can tell Brock, Nnamdi, and Cox are all battling it out because all of them played really well in limited time.

Cox should bump Brock off the roster IMO.

Brown
Rogers
Asomugha
Cox
Wright
Cooper

Dahl
Reid
Whitner
Spillman

That should be the secondary IMO.

I agree w you there but Brock played pretty well too. It'll be good to see who stands out the next few games. I wouldn't be surprised if Rogers got bumped.

Could happen, but I didn't see anything from Cooper to warrant keeping him over Brock. IIRC, Brock didn't play much after the starters left. He's the 3rd corner on the depth chart right now. The coaches like him. Cox was great, but he had extensive playing time against the 2nd and 3rd units.

Cooper will go to practice squad and I believe we have invested plenty in Rogers this season already. We don't save much in cutting him and he will be here this season as he still is a good corner. Brock will be here because he is a young developmental prospect that is showing some signs
