All night long the Niners retaliated to the SeaChicken players and got caught. But in most cases SeaChicken threw the first slap/punch. Do you think they are coached to hit first and do nothing in an effort to provoke the retalitation i.e. to play dirty? Maybe a stupid question because ultimately I belive it to be true, based on how they are coached to mug the WRs.
It makes no difference how the Seattle players are coached. It makes no difference if the Seattle players threw the first punch.
SF, as a team, needs to fix the things it can control.
Penalties are a part of the game, but there are no excuses for the sheer number of penalties the team is accumulating.
These errors extend the opposition's drives and curtail ours.
you can quibble with how legit the penalties are but it is reality. i think it was also a issue last year but it was glossed over because we did other things well to cover up and make up for that. this team does make to many penalties. they kill drives for us and extend drives for the other team. there is no conspiracy or anything sinister afoot. we just need to clean up our own game
