The 49ers played one of the AFC’s best and lost big. They played an elite team and didn’t play well, so San Francisco was blown out. However, it’s just one loss and one that is no surprise at the end of the day.
After an impressive performance on Monday Night, the 49ers get to try and keep things going this week against the Broncos. Another good game and the 49ers will have confidence and momentum heading into their week off. A loss though could create some doubt in a team still fighting for its playoff life.
Peyton Manning is seen as one of, if not, the greatest quarterback to play in the NFL. After the five-time MVP’s performance against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, it is fitting to remember why Manning is so loved by fans, non-fans, and those within the league.
Fans in the bay area have been debating for 2 years if Alex Smith is the better option at quarterback for the 49ers. After watching he and Colin Kaepernick face each other this past weekend, and looking at how their numbers, it’s obvious San Francisco nailed this one.
Including Sunday’s Week Five action, the San Diego Chargers are 4-1, the Denver Broncos are 3-1, and the Kansas City Chiefs are 2-3. Each team has a positive points differential, while the Oakland Raiders are 0-4 with a minus-52 differential. Yes, it’s going to be a long season for the Silver & Black.
The Oakland Raiders are 0-2 with no relief in sight, as they travel to New England to take on the Patriots in Week Three. That’s not the remedy for what ails the Silver & Black, of course, so it could be an ugly week for the team. Be prepared, Oakland fans, for a disastrous road trip.
The Oakland Raiders defense bent a lot on Sunday in New York, but it didn’t break much. Unfortunately, that wasn’t enough for rookie QB Derek Carr to get a win in his first NFL start as the Jets won the game, 19-14.
So it is with my jaded view of the world that I address the Ben Roethlisberger – Emmanuel Sanders feud. Sanders said that his new quarterback, Peyton Manning, is a much better leader than his old quarterback, Big Ben. And thus the verbal jousting began, feathers flexed, talons out.
It’s a poorly-kept secret that the Seattle Seahawks don’t mind taking a penalty flag or two for pass interference or defensive holding in exchange for five or six no-calls on borderline plays. Supposedly, the NFL will be cracking down on physical play in the defensive backfield. If true-and that’s a big if-it could mean even bigger numbers for the quarterbacks.
