What We Learned: 49ers @ Dolphins
Well the winning streak is over. No thanks to Barry Sims or Mark Roman. It goes to show that you can control every aspect of the game except for the points on the board. The 49ers had a shot at the end to win it but unfortunately Adam Snyder had to get hurt, and Kwame Harris’ long lost brother Barry Sims got to fill in. Here is what we learned after the 14-9 win by the Dolphins.
- Mark Roman is not a good safety and as soon as they can they need to find a replacement. It’s to bad Dashon Goldson can’t stay healthy.
- The only play Roman defensed well was the almost interception that Nate Clements had. Way to break up the play Roman.
- The 49ers did a good job of keeping Joey Porter in check, hats off to Joe Staley and Vernon Davis, but again it fell upon Barry Sims to stop him and he failed.
- Deshaun Foster did a nice job filling in for an injured Frank Gore, but the outcome would have been different with Gore in there.
- Shaun Hill played a nice game despite lots of pressure. Finished the game with no turnovers which was huge.
- The 49ers are afraid of the Redzone.
- Two plays were the difference in this game and those plays were to tight ends. Thanks again Mark Roman.
- Incase it hasn’t been mentioned Barry Sims and Mark Roman suck.
- Martz did a nice job of getting Vernon Davis involved in the gameplan.
- Despite the score: Vernon Davis won the matchup against Joey Porter.
- The Dolphins’ Wildcat was no factor whatsoever.
