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.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings wasn't exactly the first option on the play where he caught his first NFL touchdown in Sunday's 17-11 win over the Philadelphia Eagles, but when the ball came his way, he made his opportunity count. Jennings' catch, which was also the first catch of his NFL career, came on an 11-yard pass from Jimmy Garoppolo to give the 49ers a 7-3 lead over the Eagles right before halftime. The 49ers had struggled on offense throughout a good portion of the first half, but they found momentum after their defense forced a turnover on downs on a goal line stand on the previous series, then were able to put together a 97-yard drive that was capped by Jennings' reception. Jennings revealed to reporters after the game that he was the
