San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers won their second straight game against a good Kansas City team due to ball control. They ran the ball to set up the pass and relied on field goals to outlast a game Chiefs’ squad.
All anyone can talk about these days is that Harbaugh has a problem with the 49ers locker room. This is not true and the proof is in the teams reactions on and off the field.
The Oakland Raiders fired Head Coach Dennis Allen after an 0-4 start, and they have named former Miami Dolphins head coach and current Oakland offensive line coach Tony Sparano as the interim leader. However, this won’t change anything for the Silver & Black, as they still have an old and talent-bereft roster. What matters now is the plan for a permanent coach in 2015.
When the 49ers play a solid game as a team they are tough to beat. They took on an undefeated Eagles team and if not for 49er mistakes, would have blown out the road team. Even with several early mistakes, the 49ers rebounded and earned a hard fought win over a serious playoff contender.
San Francisco continues to get player back, and just in time. This week they face an Eagles team that is undefeated, and the 49ers need a win. Philadelphia will be without a few offensive lineman so San Francisco will look to take advantage and win th battle of the trenches.
After Sundays loss Anquan Boldin criticized the referees and his comments have been blown out of proportion. Not only do those talking bad about Boldin not even see the entire quote, what Boldin did will help turn around the 49ers season.
For the 49ers to avoid a 3 game losing streak they will have to beat the Philadelphia Eagles. San Francisco should be able to win, especially at home, but not if they play like they have the past two weeks.
San Francisco raced to the early lead than watched their opponent come back take the lead and snuff any attempt of a 49er comeback. The end result being a 23-14 Cardinal victory and a 49er team under .500.
Despite everyone saying otherwise, the 49ers are actually doing right by their player by allowing Ray McDonald to play. If it turns out that he is lying and is guilty of any form of domestic violence, than they have made it clear that he will no longer be a 49er. How is that wrong?
Diehard fans may want to close their eyes: with an 0-2 start and staring at possible 0-6 start now, the Oakland Raiders will be hard-pressed to avoid two ugly fates in 2014: they could end up worse than the 4-12 record they posted last year, and they could end up as the worst team in the NFL.
