That was a lot of fun, until it wasn’t.
Tough to score 41 points and be the least impressive NFC West win of the day. The Rams, Seahawks, and Cardinals all routed some very good teams. The 49ers squeaked by the Lions.
Verrett gone for the year, Mostert out eight weeks. And the Niner injury train just keeps rolling along.
Another year, another RB comes out of nowhere to dazzle defenses. From Tevin Coleman to Matt Breida to Raheem Mostert to Jeff Wilson and back to Mostert and now sixth round pick Elijah Mitchell. Ever since Mostert whined his way to a bigger paycheck, he’s been nothing but injury riddled. He missed most of last year and didn’t even get out of the first quarter Sunday.
Next week’s Eagles game, which looked like easy pickings when the schedules came out, now seems a bit more tenuous after they routed the Falcons on Sunday. The Falcons are probably not very good, but the Eagles also might not be very bad.
What the hell happened to the 49er defense that was supposed to be as good or better than the 2019 defense? They looked really mediocre against the Lions, especially the run defense.
Frustrating team to root for.
