Random Shots from the First Win

Oct 10, 2004 at 12:00 AM


-The last time the 49ers lost to the Cardinals in San Francisco was 1978. At least one streak is still alive.

-How will Peterson's injury affect the contract negotiations?

-The 49ers have only forced 3 turnovers this year. They are -8 in turnover differential. Last season they finished #4 in the NFL and #1 in the NFC in turnover differential (+11).

-Note to coaches around the league: If your offense is struggling all you need is a game against the 49ers.

-Didn't it just seem like the 49ers defense tackled better under Jim Mora?

-At the rate that the 49ers are losing players to injury, I'm thinking of showing up to practice on Monday. They might need me.

-For having such good hands, Brandon Lloyd sure seems to drop some passes.

-Andy Lee averaged 42.3 yards-per-punt, despite two shanks.

-Josh McCown went four weeks without throwing a touchdown. Against the 49ers, he threw for three.

-Did Jamal Robertson start sweating Crisco?

-Maybe Dennis Erickson should start playing a 4 Tight End formation.

-Barlow sure seems to spend a lot of time on the bench.

-For a quarterback who makes quick decisions, Rattay sure does pump fake a lot.

-Eric Johnson for Governor.

-Detroit (Mariucci) and Atlanta (Mora Jr.) have a combined record of 7-2.

-With Arnaz Battle returning punts the way he does, why is Cedric Wilson even on the field for kick returns?

-Ken Dorsey doesn't look like much of a viable option now.

-Lloyd's touchdown catch was exactly what fans have been expecting from him all year.

-Please bring back the West Coast offense.

-Do you think Eric Johnson would agree to be cloned?

-Tim Rattay threw 57 passes.

-He completed 38 for 417 yards.

-That's more completed passes than any other quarterback in 49er history.

-He hit 9 different receivers.

-So much for the running game.

-Dwaine Carpenter is a beast on special teams.

-Too bad he couldn't hang on to the starting safety spot.

-Come on Ref; let Peterson stay out there for the coin toss.

-All those fans that left early are not real fans. Stay and support your team, you never know what they are capable of.

-13 receptions, 162 yards and a TD; I can't say it enough, Eric Johnson is Money.

-Todd Peterson is everyone's favorite 49er right now.
