I re-watched the Week 2 game last night on NFL network. A couple of impressions ...
1. Our offense was not in sync the entire game. But we had opportunities. Failed to score in the red zone in the first quarter. Failed to score a TD from the 3 yard line in the third quarter. Convert these two drives and we have 14 points. Otherwise, we didn't sniff the red zone the entire game.
2. Their offense was not in sync either, except for on their opening drive in the second half. Big play - 50 yard pass to Baldwin.
3. Seattle's other scores -
a. Safety on a questionable holding call on Bruce Miller in the end zone
b. Field goal after recovering Kap fumble on our 29 yard line. They moved the ball 17 yards on this drive.
c. Second touchdown scored early in fourth quarter. They drive 80 yards ... 54 of which were given to them from a PI on Nnamdi (40 yards) and personal foul
on A. Smith (14 yards). No penalties, no score.
d. Second field goal came after a Kap interception. Seattle got the ball on our 28 yard line. They moved the ball 6 yards on this drive.
e. Third touchdown scored late in fourth quarter. Intercepted Kap and ran it back to our 2 yard line.
So, IF the 49ers hadn't of turned the ball over or committed chunk yardage penalties, and capitalized on their red zone opportunities, they should have won this game with a score of 14 to 9 (or thereabouts).
The keys to winning are straightforward - don't turn the ball over, don't give up a ton of penalties, and capitalize in the red zone. I think we can do this.
