Upon Further Review: Close, But No Cigar

Dec 3, 2015 at 8:17 AM


When last Sunday's game kicked off at Levi's Stadium, about half of the seats were occupied...an indication that not even the 49er faithful held out hope that the home team would put up much of a fight. But after an afternoon of "Three Stooges" style antics from the officials and marginal play from both teams, the 49ers found themselves locked up in a 13-13 tie late in the 4th quarter...against a 12 point favorite.

But, as usually happens with bad teams, the 49ers couldn't hold the line...and ended up losing, 19-13. Close...but no cigar.

Here's my take on the critical elements of Sunday's matchup...and a look ahead at this Sunday's opponent, the Chicago Bears:

49ers-Seahawks: George Kittle not expected to play but remains a game-time decision

By David Bonilla

On Friday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reported that San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle was unlikely to make his 2022 debut today against the Seattle Seahawks. Two days after Branch's report, ESPN's Adam Schefter still hears the same thing. The 49ers will likely play their home opener without their All-Pro offensive weapon. 49ers' TE George Kittle, questionable for Sunday due to a groin injury, is not expected to play vs. the Seahawks, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter)

The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Seattle Seahawks 27-7, earning their first victory of the 2022 campaign, but it came with bad news, as second-year quarterback Trey Lance is expected to miss the rest of the 2022 campaign with an ankle fracture. Here are the offensive grades for the 49ers in Week 2: Quarterbacks: B The 49ers' offense was moving immediately with Trey Lance at the helm, with Kyle Shanahan drawing up a gameplan that opened up the run game early and often, which made sense given that the Seahawks gave up 5.1 yards per carry in Week 1 against the

49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo says he's still looking to get on the same page with the rest of the 49ers offense after being away for most of the offseason and preseason but that things are getting better, slowly but surely. Garoppolo raised a few eyebrows after the 49ers' 11-10 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 3 when he said he was still looking to get in game shape and still trying to establish chemistry with his teammates on offense following an offseason that saw him sidelined due to shoulder surgery and a preseason where he was working and rehabbing separately from the team while awaiting word on a possible trade. He spoke more about that subject
