Todays game was very ugly!!! Our offense sucked once again and could not protect our QB.. Our O cordinator is just calling some horrible plays!! Dude sucks!!!! Whats up with this Conservative Bullshit he's calling... Our D once again looked great, expect for Walt Harris getting molested by I Bruce.. He did come up with 2 crucial 3rd down plays at the end though.. We will beat the Steelers, even though it might be ugly.. Will Will Beat the Steelers!! Patric Willis was tearing it up once again.. ROOKIE OF THE YEAR!!! NINERS RULE..

when are we going to see lelie or hill. battle & jackson are excellent possesion receivers, but it would be nice to see a flyer like lelie come in and stretch the field.

Would be nice if day after the game Real Football would comment on the game as most readers would like to comment themselves and then we readers would stay on topic. Good article tho and we are begining to appreciate the tools Willis brings to the table. Where is the offense did it go south with Turner? Not so sure about that as the Chargers didnt look good last nite on the O side of the ball. Niners defense is doing its job as both the Cards and the Rams have good passing attacks with decent running attacks and have held them both under 20 points. That is a huge improvement and its allowing us to win - ugly yes but the last few years we would of lost them games. Defense is getting stronger where is the offense.
