Interceptions were made by Dashon Goldson, Carlos Rogers, and Tarell Brown. Ray McDonald also forced a fumble on a Big Ben sack, which speaking of sacks, Aldon Smith had 2.5 of them, giving him a total of 13 sacks for the year, a 49er rookie record. Pro Bowl? Definitely. Best rookie of the year? You’re damn right.  Continue reading “49ers play Lights OUT football – literally” 49ers play Lights OUT foo…

The 49ers are the only ones to tame the Lions

Chew on this: The San Francisco 49ers are second place in the entire NFL (5-1), behind only my Green Bay Packers (6-0), and even ahead of my New Orleans Saints (4-2) after their loss this weekend.

After walking into Ford Field in Detroit, and doing what the Chicago Bears could not, the 49ers are now no longer under the radar in the NFL. They are the threat that no one took seriously for the past month, and the team that the bay area has been looking to re-find for the past decade.

I was watching the game yesterday and couldn’t help but cringe at the offside calls, due to the loud crowd noise and dangerous defensive linemen that the Lions employ. I saw why Jay Cutler was sacked so many times, but the offensive linemen for the 49ers got it done in the end. They held the quarterback sack and hit counts to a minimum, and opened up holes for Frank Gore (15 carries, 141 yards, 1 touchdown – his best game of the year and second straight 100+ yard week).  Continue reading “The 49ers are the only ones to tame the Lions” The 49ers are the only on…

Aldon Smith opens the 49ers season against the Saints

I wouldn’t call him the defensive rookie of the year just yet, but lining up next to Patrick Willis certainly has huge benefits. After the tremendous potential he’s displayed through his first two weeks as a professional, there’s a lot of anticipation among the 49ers about what Aldon Smith will do when he finally lets loose in a live game situation. The first-round draft pick has been the real deal so far in training camp.

I think it is safe to say that he will be starting at the right outside linebacker position. You don’t draft a player #7 overall to sit on the bench. Aldon Smith has impressed San Francisco 49er coaches with his technique and ability to get to the pass rusher during training camp. This is something that San Francisco desperately needs at this point. They don’t have a lot of other options in terms of linebackers being able to get 10+ sacks. Of course, Aldon also played on the defensive line on college, so in the linebacker position he will need to grasp better knowledge of dropping back into pass coverage. Or perhaps he can end up like Clay Matthews, and be a beast sacking the quarterback.

The 49ers will be against the team that took their old DT Aubrayo Franklin, so expect some fun battles for the 49ers offense tonight!
