Man, oh man! What a sorry excuse for a game. Not only a “game”, but a near collapse on the big stage at the hands of the St. Louis Rams
. Minus Sam Bradford
. Minus Stephen Jackson
. Minus Marshall Faulk
, Kurt Warner
, Isacc Bruce
and Torrey Holt
. Okay. Okay. They did not lose, but the Seattle Seahawks
showed San Francisco 49ers
something on Monday night football. They showed them that Kellen Clemons
and a below average Rams offense combined with a rather solid front 7. Actually can slow down the Seahawks offense and almost pull off what most would call a major upset in the NFL
The 49ers are currently chasing the Seahawks for first place in the NFC west. Since Seattle is such an annoying place to play. It would bode well for the Niners to top the Hawks at Candlestick on December 8th to keep them in the running for home field advantage in the playoffs. With the San Francisco atmosphere full of crazed fans eager to shove one down their arch rivals’ throats. Paired with a team of players and coaches looking to grasp victory and remove that awful taste of defeat out of their mouths. Nothing would be sweeter for what is shaping up to be one of the marquee match ups left in this NFL season.
With such a lackluster performance by Seattle, who only netted 135 positive yards. They pretty much won the game because Clemons could not finish off a 96 yards drive. After systematically running the clock down to 4 seconds and then totally blowing it by air mailing it over his receivers’ head. The 49ers need to recognize and exploit the flaws in Seattle’s offense. As we seen with an effective pass rush to disrupt the back field and an aggressive secondary to keep the wide outs locked down. San Francisco is looking to turn their fortunes around against a team that is vying for the NFC west title.
