49ers 42, Jaguars 10

The San Francisco 49ers guffawed their way past the Jacksonville Jaguars 42-10 Sunday night at Wembley Stadium in London. They marched down the field for TDs the first four times they had the ball, then, noticing it was almost halftime, politely punted to avoid sending the Jags weeping into their locker rooms down a ghastly 35-3, instead of a modest 28-3.

The game could have been yellow flagged at that point, but there were 83,000 British blokes in attendance who had braved hurricane force wind warnings to watch a full NFL game. And these chivalrous fellows stayed till the bitter end, bless their blimy souls.

The 49ers had four rushing TDs, which is pretty stone age stuff in this pass happy world. Two of them were by QB Colin Kaepernick, who’s resumed his running ways lately, presumably after recovering from an early season bout of wounded pinky toes. Frank Gore had the other two.

The team has scored over 30 points in each of its last five games, all wins. The Steve Young team of 1997 was the last 49er squad to put up 30 five times in a row. That team had Jerry Rice and Terrell Owens at WR. This team has Anquan Boldin and a cast of revolving Nobodies. Two of the top receivers yesterday were TE Vernon Davis and FB Bruce Miller, who’s become something of an offensive weapon lately, during this Nobody Era.

The Jags do deserve some kudos for spunkiness, twice going for it on 4th and goal, rather than kicking white flag field goals. They failed on both occasions, however, and that’s your Jaguars’ Moment for this game.

It will be two weeks before we see the 49ers in action again, as they enjoy their mid-season BYE week before returning to face the Carolina Panthers at Candlestick. The team could have a different look by then, with at least four players getting activated from the PUP/NFI lists and another four ushered out of town. At this point, the most significant activation will be WR Mario Manningham, who should put an end to the Nobody Era.

Tuesday is the NFL Trade Deadline, and rumors surfaced during the game Sunday that RB Anthony “Boobie” Dixon would be dealt. Boobie has been a likeable 49er for three and a half years, despite having very little game time value. He’s been the “mop up” running back and occasional shortage man. He’s got fullback size, but dancer’s feet — not a great combination. He replaced a struggling Kyle Williams for one late game KO return, in perhaps a farewell gesture by the team.

Williams future with the team seems destined to end soon, also. In his three years here, he has failed as a KO guy, a punt return guy, and as a WR. His most notable achievement was fumbling away the 2011 NFC Championship game. Sunday, he muffed both a kick off and a punt.

And here we are at the half way point in the season, sporting the same 6-2 record we had last year. And we all know where that season ended up. Can the team do it again? We shall see.

    If Kap continues to be a running threat it opens up the offense.
    Kap rolling out and running bootlegs puts tremendous stress
    on the opposing D.
    If you want to win in the NFL you have play full speed. Playing not to get hurt is like playing not to lose. It creates lower expectations and leads to mediocrity.

  2. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    A team that played not to lose yesterday were the Raiduhs.
    They built a 21-3 lead at halftime and tried to sit on it.
    In the second half the Raiduhs had only ONE first down and 35 yards total offense.
    Luckily the Steeler kicker missed
    32 yd and 38 yd FGs that gifted the Raiduhs with the win.

  3. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Calvin Johnson had an insane day yesterday, helping lead Tony Romo to yet another come from ahead 4th quarter loss.

  4. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I think 6-2 is about what was reasonable to expect before the season started. I figured anywhere between 5-3 to 7-1. Carolina looked like an easy win a month ago, suddenly they look like a good team.

  5. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    England says Chicken Tikki Masala is their national dish even though India claims it too. Because we played in London I cooked it up yesterday. Yum!!!

    Berger
    No fish and chips or kidney pie?

    You appreciated Gore’s block last week against the Titans that sprung Kap for a TD.
    You must have been going bonkers when Gore took out 2 Jags with his block to allow Kap to score.
    Gore took out Cyprien and Posluzny with his block.
    Frank Gore “the Inconvenient Truth”! The guy that Spitty said was through and a liability.

  7. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    bullit- I missed Gore’s block this week. Thanks for the replay. That was great. Hunter does well running, especially on the toss sweep. What Frank does well is everything! Frank Gore is as complete a back as there is in football.

  8. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Chip Kelly is finding out his
    supersonic offense is not working in the NFL and stopped working after the first half of his first game.
    Yesterday against the Gnats the Egos managed only 200 yds total offense.
    Up tempo doesn’t work if you can’t get a first down.
    You can’t go for two if you can’t score a TD.

  9. winderNo Gravatar says:

    Berger, i think our D will contain Newton and make him beat us with his arm. Highly unlikely but you never know. I hate playing the Saints in their house and it seems we always travel there. I’m still pretty sure we can win that one.
    Combine that with a home victory against the stinking Seawhatevers and I think it’s safe to say we are in the drivers seat. If we can get Tank out there and If Aldon is in playing shape it should be a long day for that pencil-neck Wilson.

  10. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “With the Chiefs’ win Sunday, the 49ers now have two 2nd-round picks & three 3rd before tomorrow’s trade deadline.”

  11. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Denny

    In answer to your question it would be a novelty to see the Niners face Alex and the Chefs in the Super Bowl.
    Too many things on my wish list that have priority to sweat that scenario.
    Sorry you stuck your neck out on Alex Smith failing and he’s made you look foolish.
    At the halfway point Alex Smith is on pace to throw for 3600 yds and score 20 TDs.
    Ouch!

  12. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Gruden was drooling over Red Bryant on the pre-game show. I hope our own Quenton Dial can be that in a year or two. Trying to run to Red’s side just rarely works.

  13. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Anybody notice when the Jaguars flag runners ran across the field before the game yesterday they had the name spelled Jaguras! I forgot about that but they just showed it on C’mon Man and it gave me chance to laugh once more!

  14. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    This is the best play calling I’ve ever seen from Brian Schottenheimer. A nice us of formations so far, which is usually his bane. His QB is not helping.

  15. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Not able to see the game tonight but, Zack Stacy seems to be blowing it up?
    Where’s that tough Seattle DLine?

  16. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Schottenheimer ends up furking this one up as usual.

  17. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Yesterday I was watching the Redskins running the ball down the Broncos throats and build a 14 point lead. Next thing you know they become pass happy and abandon the run and RG3 takes a beating (took like 12 hits while passing) and they lose.
    Tonight the Lambs are running the ball down the Seahags throats on the last drive and get inside the Seahag 10. They decide to pass the ball and lose.
    Kinda reminds you of the Super Bowl and how the Niners lost but forgetting to run at the end.
    Seahags looked very vulnerable tonight. A missed opportunity for sure.

  18. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Thanks for nothing StL.
    Could’ve used the help for sure.
     
    Agree Bullit.
    Inside the 5 with TOs in your pocket?
    Why throw after pushing them into their own End Zone?

  19. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    St Louis runs the ball down Seattle’s throat all night and they pass from the 2 too many times.

  20. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    What’s the deal with ROB??? Just noticed I played him in FF and he didn’t set his roster.

  21. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    APB to Tampa for Rob!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Very peculiar that the Rams went empty backfield on the last play and had no hot read contingency for the max blitz. A simple slant by a WR on either side would have been wide open. When a team does not run those formations much they don’t have the experience to know what to do. But, on the free play they have a TD anyway if the WR catches the ball on that slant.
     
    Personally, I would have had one back in so they would have had to semi honor the run. With the all out blitz the back releases for an easy TD.
     
    I heard Staci was hurt and wasn’t in? The other backs weren’t doing a thing.

  23. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Stacy was in on the last play and split out to the left.
    Seahags had only 7 first downs and a net 135 yds the entire game.
    A very pathetic offensive performance.
    Lambs gained 200 yds rushing.
    Outcome should’ve been different.

  24. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    FYI in case you missed this.
    A good piece on the Niner Oline.
    http://www.nfl.com/videos/san-francisco-49ers/0ap2000000271508/Meet-the-49ers-O-line

  25. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    It really might be time to part ways with Kyle Williams. In the 5 game win streak KW has caught exactly 2 passes for 21 yards as the #2 or #3 receiver.
    He might be a tweener who’s not really a burner who can utilize his speed to get open nor a precise route runner with the quicks to play the slot.
    He is occupying a roster spot and adds no value when he’s in the lineup because with the lowest expectations he should make one play a game as a receiver and he’s not doing that.
    Guys like Baldwin still have potential. KW has hit his ceiling and should be gone in the numbers game.

  26. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Donut boy Golden Tater gives another reason why the Seahags have no class and more reasons to dislike them.
    http://www.seahawks.com/videos-photos/videos/Golden-Tate-80-yard-touchdown/5ada0db0-6730-407f-bf5a-1db94db4cc1e

  27. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Nnamdi and KW are going to be casualties of Manningham and Carradine’s imminent return.

  28. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    This rumor is still swirling with less than 90 mins until the trade deadline.
    I just don’t see it especially if the Vikes are looking for a higher draft choice for an 8 game rental. If Aldon and Tank are good to go than there is no need for this. For the Seahags this would be silly overkill and they would be better served improving their Oline.
    “According to Schefter, the Seahawks aren’t the only team talking to the Vikings about Jared Allen. As PFT’s Mike Florio mentioned Sunday on Football Night in America, the Seahawks, 49ers and Broncos are all teams that could have an interest in Allen’s services.”

  29. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Oh, I can understand the interest in Allen. You can never have enough pass rush IMHO. Whether he is worth the asking price, for 8 games, is another consideration.

  30. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Only trade made was Soap from Egos to Pats for a 5th rd pick.
    Egos get a 6th rd pick back from Pats.
    NE trying to shore up their NT.
    Pats will absorb most of his $11 mil contract he signed as a FA with the Egos.

  31. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Jared Allen has a $18 mil contract and will be a FA next year.
    Trading for him would seriously disrupt your team’s salary cap not to mention messing with team chemistry as he displaces someone
    and learns your defensive scheme.

  32. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “49ers have activated rookie DT Tank Carradine from the team’s Reserve/NFI List.”
     
    Here we go, guys. Our new and improved team is on the way.

  33. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Jermaine Cunningham was released.

  34. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Seahags have lost WR Sidney Rice to a torn ACL.
    Puts the pressure on Harvin coming back sooner rather than later.

  35. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    It shouldn’t take Harvin long to be injured again.

  36. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Saw it on Facebook earlier, Berger.
     
    This product is approved by Grumpy Guy.

  37. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I’m surprised somebody did not think of a Mike Vick dog chew toy sooner!

  38. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    When the Niners played the Lambs at their place several weeks ago
    they rushed for 219 yds with Gore
    running for 153.
    Yesterday the Seahags managed only 44 yds total with Lynch getting 23.
    Yesterday’s game film would be a good blueprint on how to attack the Seahags.
    The first time we played the Seahags the Niners turned the ball over 5 times and 12 penalties
    for 121 yds were devastating.
    On Dec 8 the Seahags will see a much different Niner team.

  39. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Interesting fact on the Lambs.
    Through 8 games they are the only NFL team not to have a rushing TD.
    That seems…

  40. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    The Seattle O line is decimated by injuries. How the Rams played them and how we did bears little resemblance to each other.
    .
    They have licked out on the road, but they ARE winning.

  41. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    . . . lucked . . .

  42. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    There is an irony to NE trading for Sope today. We traded down twice the year we drafted Sope in 2004. We passed on Vince Wilfork to get to Rashaun Woods. With one of the picks we acquired by trading down we selected Isaac Sopoaga in the 4th round. Now he replaces Wilfork in NE.

  43. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit the big advantage for Seattle in their bldg is the noise factor.
    We can’t be a dominant OLine and establish the run when the noise messes up the rhythm.
     
    Seahawks are a shell of themselves when playing away from the 12th Step Progam Venue.
     
    What we need to do up there is, to go no huddle, or have sideline visual aides of some kind.
    I have seen some signage on our sidelines this year too.
    Getting plays off in varied rhythm would help too.
     
    Can’t constantly snap at zero and expect to get a jump on them.

  44. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Let’s see what Mangini and Roman have come up with when the rematch occurs in December.
    Staying healthy and getting Vance more involved are imperative IMO.
    Having Mario should be a huge improvement too.

  45. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    We also need to be getting more from our PR unit too.
    KW = Kick Waver.
     
    Where’s Fair Catch Kyle going to get us?
    Total waste of resources if we’re not setting up a return game.

  46. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I just hope we’ve been keeping LMJ under wraps as the secret weapon back there.
     
    If he can do for us, what he did at Oregon in the open field, we’d have a weapon like Hester.

  47. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    I think COX will be returning punts pretty soon. LMJ was a disaster as a PR last year. Keep Dixon as the KR. Lose KW when Manningham comes back.

  48. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Well let’s hope they get something rolling on STeams in the 2nd half Chuck.
     
    Fair Catch Kyle isn’t scaring anyone.

  49. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    LMJ has PR abilities written all over him.
    Have to hope he’s been working hard at improving his ball handling skills in that regard?
    &nsbp;
    Harbaugh having a secret weapon under wraps wouldn’t surprise me.
     
    With the NFI/PUP guys coming back into the mix they’re forced to adjust now.
    Harbaugh did mention LMJ specifically too.
    I can only hope LMJ has been a healthy scratch waiting for this opportunity to arise?

  50. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    November is Tune Up Month
    December is ‘Pedal to the Medal’ Month.
     
    Have to be firing on all cylinders in Deccember.
