If we didn’t fumble a punt, fumble on the 4, give up a pick 6, given up a 98 yard KO return, or sleepwalk through the entire first half, we woulda had that one! Hah!
But seriously, this scrappy team hasn’t thrown in the towel. They may blow assignments and give up 50 yard swing passes like I blow my nose, but we actually got pressure on Wilson in the 2nd half for 3 sacks, and sorta made it a game. Till the 100 yard pick 6 kinda slowed our roll. Anyhow, as usual, there were some good things to come out of the shellacking.
Dante Pettis had another nice game to back up last week’s performance. Jeff Wilson Jr ran 15 times for 61 yards, and had 8 catches for 73 more, and except thr that fucing fumble, would have been even better. Truth be told, that was a 50/50 call, and since it is the 49ers, well, we get 49, they get 51 and the call. Ties are supposed to go to the offensive player, as the fail mary was supposed to tell us.
Anyhow, Big Dick Nick stretched things out for a fairly monstrous performance and went 30-48 for 414 yards, a couple TDs, and that godawful 100 yard 14 point swing. So, like Jerry said, every silver lining has a touch of grey.
Hey, we are still number one, and the team hasn’t quit. But I sure wish Robert Saleh would.
