The San Francisco 49ers made a bit of a statement on Monday Night Football as they handled their business against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a 20-3 victory. While the team benefitted from a banged up Ben Roethlisberger, they also made sure to bring serious pressure and kept him aware of their presence. Roethlisberger put up a sizable amount of yards, but he was picked three times, fumbled once and the Steelers could not get on track in 49ers territory.
It is a short week for the 49ers as they travel up to Seattle to face the Seahawks on Saturday. Based on what's showing up on twitter, the players have today off before getting back to work tomorrow. Some players will be available to the media, but otherwise it is acting a bit like a normal Monday for them.
Coach Harbaugh will chat with the media at noon and there will be plenty to discuss following last night's victory. Ted Ginn's injury is one question mark. I don't expect much information on that, but it is still an important issue. One of the keys to victory last night was the ability to dominate starting field position. Although Ginn actually wasn't a huge contributor to that, he remains important heading into these final two weeks. If he is unable to go on Saturday, Kyle Williams would be the primary return man.
