49ers-Bears: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly
The 49ers have come on strong their past two preseason games, this time beating the Bears 37-30 in Chicago. Here is a quick rundown of the good, the bad, and the ugly of that game.
JT O’Sullivan – All I have to say is he looked damn good. He played the first quarter and finished the day 7 for 8, for 126 and one touchdown. He had a beautiful pass to Vernon Davis for 40 yards and hit Jason Hill on a nice touchdown pass.
Jason Hill – With Bruce not playing much and Lelie, Battle and Johnson still out. The second year receiver finished the game with 4 receptions for 94 yards and a touchdown. Not to worried about our receiving corps this year with the likes of Hill and Morgan out there.
Thomas Clayton – Clayton got lots of touches due to limited action by Gore and Foster out due to a death in the family. He finished the day with 18 touches for 81 yards and a touchdown.
Offensive Line – They opened up nice holes for Gore, Keasey and Clayton and only gave up one sack.
Alex Smith – Yes I know he threw a touchdown pass, but I don’t believe one pass was thrown to a receiver. It was either behind, infront, or over. It is clearly JT’s team at this time.
The defensive front seven – After getting good pressure last week against the Packers, this week they couldn’t do anything. They gave Kyle Orton all day to throw.
The secondary – They made Rashied Davis and Kyle Orton look like Pro Bowlers. There were some decent plays but the only one that stood out was Walt Harris breaking up a pass to Greg Olsen in the endzone.
Special Teams – They were worse than ugly, they were horrid. They were responsible for the first 10 points the Bears received. Bad play all around.
Overall another solid performance by the 49ers. It is clear that the offense under Martz will be ten times better than under Hostler. Hell they’d be better under my grandma. Anyway offensive line was giving the running backs good holes and overall all quarterbacks made smart decisions.
