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.

Confident Brock Purdy shines in first extended action at QB for 49ers

By Kirk Larrabee

The San Francisco 49ers could have gone in the wrong direction on Sunday after losing starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for the remainder of the season due to a foot injury, but thanks to a clutch performance by rookie Brock Purdy, their offense didn't miss a beat in a 33-17 win over the Miami Dolphins. The situation was a challenging one for Purdy, who before Sunday had just one NFL regular season appearance under his belt (4-of-9, 66 yards, one interception in a late game role during an October 23 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs) after the 49ers made him the final selection in the 2022 NFL Draft. Garoppolo sustained the injury during a sack by Dolphins linebackers Jerome Baker and Jaelan Phillips on the final offensive play of the 49ers' opening drive of the game, which

Fresh off a short week after a game in Mexico City, the San Francisco 49ers fought their way to a 13-0 victory over the New Orleans Saints, providing them a one-game lead over the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC West ahead of their Week 15 showdown. With the short week, alongside the travel and the adjusted practice schedule, many believed that the Saints could've been a potential trap game for the 49ers, given their ability to score in certain weeks, but more importantly, play shutdown defense. However, the 49ers put those concerns to rest, dialing up their strongest defensive performance of the year and handing the Saints their first shutout in 332 games, when they, coincidentally, were last shutout by San Francisco in Week 17 of the 2001 season. How
