winners & losers: preseason game 1

Winners: Dixon, Lemonier, Osgood, Dobbs, Haralson, Nhamdi, Cox, Reid

Losers: LMJ, Jenkins, Mccoy, Harper Most of the depth on offense.

The first teams on both O and D looked good. I was personally disapointed with LMJ's performance.

It has become glaringly obvious that this team has either missed, or entirely neglected the Offensive depth over the last couple of off seasons, and it really showed in this game.

Dixon had a good night, and looks to me to be looking to hold onto his roster spot. The guy that suprised me the most was Osgood. He certainly looks the part, huge guy, and he was busting ass on ST. He looks like he is gonna put up a fight for a roster spot.

Our Special Teams and Defense will be very good this year. After getting a look at the rooks Reid, McDonald and Lemonier I can't wait to see Tank get on the field


I'm really disappointed that Tank is not ready. I was under the impression that he was going to be ready for training camp when we drafted him. If he misses all of camp, they probably won't work him into the rotation until at least mid-season.

yea it sucks but we don't need him right away anyways. His role will increase as the years go on but for now I think he is just going to work on getting completely healthy and act as insurance for Justin smith and McDonald. But hey maybe he explodes at practice and earns a bigger role quicker than we imagine

Really? Why?

LMJ looked pretty darn good to me. He dances around a bit at times, but he also had some really nice runs. He got around the edge against Von Miller and ran past him for about 8 yards. He also had several nice runs up the middle.

Relies on his speed entirely way too much. His vision hasnt seemed to improve to me. Stretches plays to the sideline far too often, his fumbles worry me, and IMO he is a bit contact shy. Im not saying he was horrible or anything, but i was disapointed in the progression i was in this first preseason game. I expected a lot more out of him, possibly too much i guess, but i expected more considering he is getting a lot of snaps in camp and had an offseason to develop.

Looked better than McCoy.

they both sucked
After watching the second and third team offense, I think I know why the first team offense will also be the scout team for the first team defense.
Our whole second-string O-line was comically bad. I wanted to jump to conclusions about McCoy but he saw way too much pressure in the pocket.

+ 1. I was pleased with what I saw of LMJ.


I definitely noticed some nice forward push from Ian.

Also liked what I saw of Boldin, Reid, Vance McD, LMJ, Lemonier, and Cox, Kilgore, and big Dix.

I don't remember seeing anything special from Dorsey.. didn't think much of McCoy or AJJ. Watched Okoye's minimal snaps... he was.. ookay, but nothing really went towards him. He got driven away by a double team on one of his first plays, but the RB didn't cut back properly, so no harm done.

I might be missing a couple so feel free to add.

This. Vance had a good day as well. Osgood was great.

Harper lost as well.

Anybody know what was up with Jewel Hampton? We keep hearing how the 49ers are supposedly high on him...I didn't see him get into the game tonight (maybe he's injured?). Harper got into the game before him, which surprised me. I've been looking forward to seeing Hampton play in the preseason.

I Think Hampton should be ahead of Harper unless like you said he's injured

agree...the drop off in play is significant....not sure if Kaep is really that good or these guys are that bad...

Three running backs are competing for a roster sport--Dixon, Harper, and Hampton.

Dixon and Harper got enough playing time to be evaluated. Dixon won hands down.

Next game, I expect to Dixon and Hampton go head to head.
Nhamdi had his guy locked up whenever he was in press, he also made a nice play when they were in Zone. The QB would look to the side Nhamdi was on and would not throw it, that cause about 2 sacks and some plays to breakdown.
Watching McCoy and Tolzien brought me back to a dark place that took 10 years to get out of. Whenthe 9ers have a franchise qb you see the drop off in play.

I say let BJ Daniels get some snaps. If he is equal, then he should earn a roster spot and McCoy or Tolzien should be cut.
