Joe Staley Describes Whole Team In Tweet About Offensive Line

It's getting pretty late (particularly out here on the East Coast!), but I though I'd get one more post for you guys. Joe Staley tweeted this out earlier this evening and while the offensive line is in fact quite beastly and physical, this really could describe this whole team.

The San Francisco 49ers are not a finesse team. Even in the passing game, we saw Michael Crabtree hustling and busting his butt for every extra yard on key third down conversions. Frank Gore was slashing his way through the Lions front seven. Alex Smith had his way as the strategy of taking what the defense gives you is pretty solid, particularly when the defense is giving up the farm.

And just to wrap up the day, I thought I'd go with an oldie but goodie!
