Quick Observations from Raiders Game

It was great seeing Kwame in Silver and Black and not Red and Gold

It was great seeing Kwame in Silver and Black and not Red and Gold

Just got around to throw out some observations from the loss to the Raiders.

  • Josh Morgan looks to be the real deal. He finished the day with 4 catches for 68 yards. By the way Matt Maiocco thinks Morgan is easily having the best camp from a 49ers rookie receiver since 1996 when Terrell Owens came to the team.
  • Ray McDonald looks to get off the ball rather quickly and had a nice sack.
  • J.T. O’Sullivan didn’t look to great but he didn’t look to bad either. At times looked decent, the other time lost.
  • If you determine the starting QB by this game, Alex Smith would get it.
  • Andy Lee did not miss that tackle on the punt return for touchdown. Johnnie Lee Higgins did not deserve to be tackled by Lee.
  • Kwame Harris was wearing Silver and Black instead of Red and Gold (That proves their is a God.)
The Pundit of 49ersNews. I do what I can to supply the Niner fans with their fix.

    Cant believe I'm missing the preseason.. Did Josh Morgan really look that good?

  • Niner Pundit

    Raph…yeah he did. His first catch was a 22 yarder and any other receiver not named Battle would have not caught that. He also was one of the top 3 WR in camp. Not that that says much considering, Lelie, Battle, Johnson have either missed time because of injuries (new/lingering) or like haven’t been able to sit out like Bruce due to him being a vet.

    Nolan is digging his own grave with this quarterback mess. The guy is a stubborn idiot. He talks about doing whats best for the team, yet he continues to keep up this bulshit. Not having a starter named at this point is detrimental. Any fool can see that. He should name Smith the starter but he won't simply because of last year's mishandling fiasco.

    The impression I got from this game was that it is a direct continuance from where we left off last year. I'm starting to firmly believe that as long as Nolan's at the helm this team isn't going anywhere. Extremely poor personnel management and game time decisions are to blame.

  • 49forlife

    I JUST WANNA SAY THAT I THINK NOLAN SHOULD JUST NAME ALEX THE STARTER NOW. I MEAN IN THIS OFFENSE, HE REALLY NEEDS TO GET ON THE SAME PAGE WITH THE HIS RECIEVERS. JT WAS O.K., SHAWN O.K. I GUESS. BUT BOTH ARE NOT WORTH 54 MILL I THINK. THATS COMBINED. JUST NAME HIM THE STARTER SO HE CAN GET THE REPS WITH THE FIRST TEAM. AND ONE MORE THING, HOW DID JOSH MORGAN FALL TO THE 6th ROUND AGAIN. WOW I WAS IMPRESSED

  • Goldsmith 49

    Alex Smith should be starting the quarterback. It is not good for the team to continue split the reps between 3 quarterbacks. JTO did not look to good to me and Hill is limited with his lack of arm strengh. Smith has more upside than either of the other quarterbacks and he is currently playing better. If a decision is not made soon then we are in for a losing season, again. I believe Alex Smith can do the job if given the opportunity.

  • Adam49

    Nolan is stubborn but he’s not an idiot.Andy Lee sucked this game.Nolan should start Smith this next game and let us see what he can do.

  • Bob In Pacifica

    I agree that Smith should be getting the reps. I hope that Martz can run a competent offense without Nolan getting too conservative and interfering. I mean, blocking fullback run on third and goal from the three?

    Is it my imagination or is VD still having trouble with his hands?

    Anyway, I’m hoping for good things this year but I’ll settle for mediocre things. Anything will be better than last year’s Hostler offense.

  • Billy

    Its seems to me that Martz wants to start Osullivan and Nolans going with it I still think although I dont like him we should start Alex and then Hill is a good back up let go of Osullivan he sucks

    I like Nolan sure he sucks at coaching but hes assembled a solid team and last year was Norvs fault for leaving us now Martz is tryin to put his "recommendation" (Sullivan) to work which suck ass!

    I want to see more Josh Morgan, Cam Colvin with Alex Smith oh yeah watch them tear it up

  • Adam49

    Nolan still screwing around with this QB bs is starting to piss me off.Alex Smith is the QB we need to start and we all know it.The other 2 QB’s look just like what they are.Backups.Stop the horse and pony show,name Alex the starter so he can get the reps,and lets move on.If Nolan names anybody but Smith as the starter,then York should fire his ass right after the announcement.I do like Nolan but he is starting to piss me off.

  • Adam49

    Did anyone see Vernon Davis throw that Raider 10 yards on the O’Sullivan fumble?He is one strong SOB.

  • MSouza

    I really liked what I saw from Vernon, really was blocking well, I wish he would’ve had the ball in his hands a little bit , but I was satisfied with watching him toss Raiders to the ground.
