    JB, don't be such a fatalist.

    If you think our offense was sh*t today, wait until Pat Willis, Justin Smith, Navarro Bowman, and Aldon Smith come to town.

    They're going to hammer us, as they should.

    Typical dirty steller move. Mame the player who is beating us. One hit to the head and Sanchez was off all day.

    Based on our pretty easy schedule after the first 5 weeks, I'd still say we have a pretty decent shot at a 10-6 record and wildcard spot. But don't get swelled heads when it happens. Today was the true identity of this team. A very average team that cannot keep up with the elite teams.

    We need better talent, better depth, better coaching, etc.

    And that's the expectation that everyone should have had coming into the season.

    It is not the fact that we lost it is how we lost. It was a good game right up to the 4th but we went 3 quarters of not moving the ball at all. Sanchez went for 37% and that is unexceptionable. He had time, had WRs open, and had some OK play calling. He flat out failed. If you take out the 80 yards from his 1st drive he had 58 yards the rest of the game. Blame drops all you want that is poor QB play. It was our biggest concern going into the year and it is still just that. He needs to play better in these games.

    Why are drops blamed on poor QB play?

    Doesn't matter if they were better than us or not. They were a DESPERATE team. That's the key.

    We lost cause we couldnt bring Ben down when we had him sacked.
    Kerley fumbled that punt at the worst time possible.
    Thats why they won. Hill makes that catch or at the very least get the PI call, it is clear the defender hits Hills forearm before ball gets there.

    Dont care what mark said in the press c. that shot affected him.

    OK why should it not be? He is the one throwing the ball is he not? Does he make the choice on who and where he throws the ball? He was doing the same BS he always does and just throwing it to the closest guy. That is how you get your WR killed. Drops do not excuse bad QB play. If he isn't putting a good touch on those short passes or is hanging his WRs out to dry that is still on him. He had what 4 drops maybe 5. Even if you take that out he still had less then 50% of his passes. That is bad, there simply is no excuse on that.

    We lost to a good QB today. He made plays that enabled his guys to get open.
    I cant sit here and pretend that we didnt have a chance, cause we did.

    We gave them extra possessions time and time again.

    Yeah...why don't we see what the coaches see. We must be stuuuupid.
    I mean, Greene is our all-down back, and we're constantly three and out.
    Powell comes in and lands 8 and 12 yard carries in every opp.

    But we still have Greene & we still have Thomas.
    And for gods sake...how many times does Sanchez have to hit Holmes in the numbers, before a) holmes catches it, b) Sanchez stops throwing it or c) freaking coaches take Holmes out!!
    I'm not giving up yet ... but the familiar feeling is starting to come back. You all know what I mean.

    The guys on the post game show claim we are just as good as Steelers--must be our coaching.

    I think all you "lots of drops" guys need to go back and look at the tape.

    There really weren't a whole lot of drops...there were, although, very tight coverage and a QB unable to hit his receivers in tight coverage.

    Sanchez should be the QB of this team but he was bad today...

    Watch the game again and you'll see...

    So are we rebuilding under the current regime? Does that include the QB? Or are we waiting to see how the season goes?

    That would put us in something worse than rebuilding mode, IMO that would mean we are currently in limbo. No identity and no real plan. Just waiting to see what happens.

    So what are we?

    I can agree with this. Sanchez was not good today. But he started good and he battled through and that is a sign of progress. He wasn't terrible though. He reacted like all QBs do when they get smacked in the face. He pressed and then had no one to bail him out. Which is weird because I thought that's what Tebow was for. When Sanchez was finally able to get his bearings though his receivers were getting mugged or dropping the ball. Then the defense was on the field for 10 minutes.

    The whole team lost. Sanchez was less than Sanchez after that hit. Holmes was just a complete mess after that first drive. Hill got a welcome to the NFL type game. And the revamped part of the revamped d-line barely saw the field. Rex has to move on to the young guys especially in the middle of that linebacker corp.
