+1 getting up at 3:20am to watch that isn't something I want to do too often. I suspect Zimmer is going to be very very pissed when it comes round to the team meetings and practice this week. They looked lost and not something I'd expect from a Zimmer coached team. D looked slow right from the off as if they were at the end of a long season and were getting pulled out of position way too much for my liking - plus add in a few missed tackles as well.
Offense had some ideas but I don't think Teddy was given enough time, though not sure if that was due to our OL or just good defensive plays by SF.
Questions need to be asked this week as we don't want a repeat performance for the home opener.

Well that was painful. We never play well at night for some reason. The non call on the pass interference on Wallis in the end zone hurt and the call on the D line that gave them a first down on their first scoring drive really hurt. It was an ugly game for us. Not ready to panic yet but ouch.

Maybe it will also serve as a wake up call to players and coaches alike that they are going to have to earn their wins this season and that there are no gimmes. Think many people ( myself included ) though that SF would be down after the offseason that they had - that wasn't the case.
People are going to have to start putting effort in on gameday when it counts.

Too late to revise my predicted finishing record?

We were the 98 pound weakling Vikings getting sand kicked in our faces by the beach bully 49ers. An epic fail in all three phases of the game. Offense perplexed by the blitz, our OC genius was lost, the supposedly stout defense was run over consistently, Walsh still has head issues, and we forgot all about Peterson. I predicted 9-7 and I'm thinking that may be generous. Too soon to panic but much work needs to be done for this team to compete. I was most disappointed by the lack of physicality. We got pushed all over the field.

Yes, but Harrison's hit on Kaperdick was glorious.

' bout the only good thing that happened. But it was great. Kap's a tough kid and got right up though. Probably need the tub today.

Well that was depressing. On the bright side I got the 49ers score right thanks to their special teams efforts.

Adrian needs to learn how to block in pass protection or else he is not going to see a lot of playing time. Thats why they had to pull him out all time. Also using the pass to set up the run didn't work. The O line was awful in all phases of the game. In short it looked like a preseason game for us. Mistakes in coverage, in containment etc.

I do have confidence in our coaching staff to correct mistakes and get it together.

Was at the game. Thought I was still watching pre-season.

Toughest part to watch was the DL and linebackers getting manhandled while SF ran at will on us. Stop the run and they had nothing. Kaepernick was less than impressive throwing hte ball.

yeah..i'm with you, even though we looked stinky in pretty much all phases of the game, the DL's inability to stop the run was the most disappointing aspect for me as well. with Sully and Loadholt out i kinda expected less from the OL, and with this being APs 1st game back i kinda assumed it would take a few games for he and the rest of the Offense to get fully in sync with each other, but i really thought the Defense would be as good or much better than last year right outta the gate. not so last night...they seemed to get pushed around every whichaway...felt & looked like the DLs speed was just overwhelmed by SF's size & power (thats just a gut reaction, i don't know if SF's OL is that much bigger and stronger, but that's what it 'felt' like watching the game)
.

so yeah...Monday night was a stinker pretty much any way you look at it from our stand point.

one thing....i think SF is much BETTER than the pundits thought, so there's that.

(and correspondingly, we're not YET as good as the pundits thought :)

Game 1 has been deleted from the DVR.

i'm not panicked yet and i do actually still have confidence that the coaches and team has the ability fix things....so, on my end, my approach at this point is, one game does not a season make...

Detroit next up....and, honestly, with the way the purple Defense played Monday, the Lions Offense kinda scares me....so our D is gonna have to get it t together fast.

oh yeah....and that long pass to Wallace was a TD dangit!! whats with the no pass-interferance call there??? i demand an apology from the league!!!!

(there's your ultra thin strand of silver lining :))

alrighty now.....lets Go Vikes....no REALYY...lets friggin GO!!! fix what needs fixin' and scrap your way up piece by piece....
