Well, these games are entertaining at least. As I have been saying though, once again the 49ers couldn’t seal the deal on a game within their grasp, and let it slip away like a touchdown pass early in the game through George Kittle’s hands. Kittle did redeem himself in spades late in the game with some clutch TD catches and a key catch in traffic on a 4th and 1, but again there were too many penalties, too many mistakes, too many drops, and a few bad (and non-) calls thrown in for good measure.
Once again, the pressure on the opposing quarterback was not good enough, and the defense played well at times, and terribly on others. Ray Ray Armstrong is a loose cannon of the wildest variety. He forgets to stay at home on run plays and gets WAY out of position too much and losing the edge, but his game-saving (at the time anyway) interception in the end zone was a great play. Similar to the one he made early in the game against Arizona.
The future? Well, Dallas, Washington, and Philly certainly don’t look good. AZ and the New York football Giants are possibles. 2-8 here we come! Then we run the table to 8-8.
It could happen.
