Not much to say about this game. We either score some touchdowns or we lose. Jared Goff seems to have shed his bust tag from last year’s debacle, but that is strictly related to the Curse of Jeff Fisher. A guy who has done less with more since Aluminum Mike Singletary. Now that he is gone, Goff appears to have a clue. Granted he hasn’t faced a tough defense, and we don’t quite fit that category yet, but if we can get after the immobile Goff like we got after the mobile RW, we should create a little havoc for the Ram offense.
Other than that, our offense has been a small stagnant pond in a burning pit of doom. The bright spot is Carlos Hyde. Which is good and bad. Hyde hasn’t been exactly durable for his career, and counting on him seems to lead to disappointment. Or we become the 2010 49ers who do nothing but hand the ball off 3 times and then punt. Hoyer needs to trust his blocking and actually hit the open guys. He has left a shit ton of plays out there, but Goodwin does no favors by dropping excruciatingly important passes.
As I said, 20-13 Niners.
