Well, it wasn’t earthshaking, and it wasn’t even a real game, but I”m sure the coaches, players, and front office let out a collective sigh of relief as Jimmy G led the 49ers to 3 scores, and ended up with a solid 14-20 for 188 and a TD. He started off a little wobbly, but there were no picks, and only one questionable pass into triple coverage after that first drive.
The defense allowed a coupe TDs. The first being an easy wheel route to a RB that ended up going for 61 yards. The pass rush is still a concern, but then again we aren’t at full strength. Kwon Alexander looked like he was having fun flying around the field, and Dee Ford resumed practice today. The coverage by the defensive backs looked fairly good, and the offense looked very good under Mullens and Jimmy G. Only one drop, by Dwelly, killled an early drive, but otherwise a solid game all around.
The O line did much better, even if Jimmy G took a hit. Tha the KC D line is no slouch but there were no penalties on the line as Person did well in his first go-round this preseason. More good news on the injury front is that George Kittle also joined the team on the practice field as a full participant.
We get SD here on Thursday, and then. . . . . FOOTBALL!
