An Average Joe's Thoughts

I have to admit, yes, the loss was a disappointment. However I don't think the panic button should be hit just yet. We are still in the top of the wildcard race. Granted we are third, we are still in it with a favorable schedule to finish up. Don't get me wrong, I hate to lose, in anything I do or cheer for; but I'm not throwing away the season either. This team can still get to the playoffs and compete once they get there. This has been a reloading year, not rebuilding. Don't kid yourselves into thinking the year is lost. 

I have some observations from todays game...

  • The loss today can be put directly on the offensive line. Three times we were in the redzone, hot and looking ready to score touchdowns, only to have the line crumble and get Garrard planted, two times he fumbled the ball. On the third occasion he was hurried twice in a row which forced bad throws. Garrard needs to hold the ball, but that wouldn't be a problem if he wasn't running for his life every time he took a snap.
  • The defense really played well today. They forced the 49ers into a few three and outs, swarmed to the ball, and generally got off the field on third down.
  • If there was a title to this game, it would have to be "The Game of Missed Chances." The offense missed chances on three scoring opportunities, all of which were in the red zone, and all of which could have been touchdowns. 
  • Piotr Czech and Matt Bryant are two kickers who happen to be free agents... just sayin...
