I'm going to stop assuming the 49ers can win football games. I got all excited yesterday and I was let down, to the highest of extents. I felt like I was watching a Giants game ... except they win and stuff now, sometimes. I don't even know what I took from that game, honestly. I don't know who I want to blame, I don't know what to do with the offensive line, the quarterback situation, the coaching staff, anything of that nature.
So where do we go from here? Well, we get a win against the Raiders and go 1-5, that's a start. I think we envisioned the "start," would be five weeks ago, but this will have to do, I imagine. They're not a team to take lightly though, as I've come to know. The Raiders are a decent football team, and the 49ers will, once again, have their hands full. Let's just get to your links.
God I hate that this is still coming up. All this nonsense about a shared stadium with the Raiders. I will not buy tickets to that stadium if it's the case. Just a big kick in the package after that loss. (NFL.com)
A change at quarterback is still "possible," according to Mike Singletary. I certainly hope not. (SacBee.com)
The defense has not performed. In fact, the defense has crumpled quite a few times this season. What a false sense of security. (CSNBayArea.com)
Singletary and Smith had an ... animated discussion on the sidelines during the game, and then after that, a meeting. (CSNBayArea.com)
How about some grades? They aren't pretty. (PressDemocrat.com)
A coaching change isn't coming for the 49ers, which I am firmly behind. I think ... (NFL.com)
One of the few things that went right: Alex Smith and Michael Crabtree appeared to be on the same page for once. Let's hope that can continue. (SacBee.com)
The fans at the stadium were chanting David Carr's name. What a misguided bunch. (PressDemocrat.com)
I don't know what to do about Alex Smith. He's good, then he's bad, then he's OK ... just schizophrenic. (Examiner.com)
