NOTE: SITE DECORUM IS ON! I'm still not quite sure what happened with that game, but I'm told that the San Francisco 49ers did indeed win the football game, so I'll just run with that. A strong second half and an inability to put games away when they should made it come down to the wire, but in the end, San Francisco got it done with a thrilling 19-17 win over the Seattle Seahawks.
One of the biggest things, to me, is Larry Grant. He strung together three very strong games with Patrick Willis being hurt, and then proceeded to miss some tackles today. He missed a couple tackles that went for big gains, and led to Marshawn Lynch breaking the 49ers' streak of not allowing a 100-yard rusher. But in the end, Grant forced a big time fumble on Tarvaris Jackson and that ultimately led to the 49ers winning. He's a backup who stepped it up big time.
Of certain significance are the injuries to Delanie Walker and Kyle Williams. Both hits were extremely questionable (the guy who kicked Walker in the head was running awfully weird), though the latter was just downright uncalled for. The NFL has been very clear about players who surrender, and you cannot punish a player on the ground. It's just that simple. At the time of writing this, there's nothing new on either, but both concussions and jaw injuries could be in play for both players.
Either way, treat this as another postgame thread, and make the jump for some bullet point observations.
