Well that's not a performance you expect to see coming off a bye week. Not a performance you expect to see with former Super Bowl winning coach George Seifert and newly crowned world champion members of the San Francisco Giants in attendance. That was brutal. The Niners came off the bye and lost a 13-10 game to the last place Rams. The offense had an absolutely terrible game.

This has to be one of the worst defeats of the Jim Harbaugh era in San Francisco. Coming off their bye, the team's offense was completely unprepared for the game. During the game, they could not adjust to anything the Rams did defensively. The offensive line was completely manhandled by the Rams defensive line. Colin was sacked 7 times with one resulting in a fumble and was generally under pressure all game long. The offense only managed one TD and a field goal at home. Jim Harbaugh and Greg Roman didn't have this team ready to win. Even though the team had a shot at the end to win, they really didn't deserve it. The sloppy play is killing the team and they face a mountain to climb to get to the playoffs.

The defense played very well Sunday. They forced Austin Davis to throw 2 INTs and only allowed 13 points, so they kept their end of the deal. The bright spots of the game were Chris Borland recording 18 tackles in the absence of Patrick Willis and Aaron Lynch recording another sack. Perrish Cox continued his run of good play with another pick. The defense is holding up their end of the bargain. The offense needs to hold up its end.

The team needs to play flawless football the rest of the way to have a shot at the playoffs. The Cardinals don't seem to be losing steam and Seattle is a game up. The team has all the talent in the world, but they can't play sloppy and expect to win in this league.
