The 49ers season did not get off to the ideal start, but the defending NFC champions aren’t going to fade away without a fight. San Francisco went into Tennessee on Sunday and beat the Titans 31-17 to improve to 5-2 on the year. It was their fourth straight win after a 1-2 start.
Quarterback Colin Kaepernick had an effective game, scoring his first Baseball Jerseys Cheap rushing touchdown of the season, while running back Frank Gore scored twice on the ground.
Houston is the only guy not at least in his eighth year in the league in the top five and I don’t think anybody saw him being a guy that might break the record. Turns out some of these old guys are hungry and still want a piece of the action as well.
Oh, and the top sack man at defensive tackle? Jason Hatcher, who is in his eighth year and has six so far.
– More late-game coaching fails. Last week I explained to you why I blamed Saints head coach Sean Payton for his team’s loss to the Patriots because of his horrible mismanagement of the clock at the end of the game. Today I will put two more coaches on blast who likely cost their teams the game on Sunday.
First up, Lions coach Jim Schwartz. At the end of the Lions’ game with the Bengals they were tied at 24 and the Lions had the ball on their own 22-yard line with 48 seconds left after a run. The Bengals had one timeout left so because it was highly unlikely that the Lions could position themselves in 48 seconds for even a game-winning field goal, the smart thing to do was run it twice and go to overtime.
If you aren’t so inclined to play it safe and you want to throw, at least take a shot or two deep down the field. Hell, Calvin “Megatron” Johnson had already made several circus catches, including a touchdown over three defenders, so I might have Baseball Jerseys Custom been good with that also.
