49er's vs. Rams: Quick Reaction

Disgust? Intense pain? Things are things you should get used to as the Rams lost again today. A 35-0 shellacking certainly leaves a bunch of questions, but here are some quick notes from the game:

  • After Alex Barron's bonehead penalty, he was benched in favor of John Greco. Is this the end of Barron? He seemed to be off in his own little world on the bench (probably on the field sometimes too).
  • Special teams was horrible. Blocks in the back, holding on huge returns. Donnie Jones had a sub par day. Pro Bowl hopes are dwindling now..
  • Shurmur haters, here are some quick numbers: 78% of the time in the first half, the Rams ran it on 1st down. They also did not cross their own 20 yard line all of the 3rd quarter. Ouch.
  • I'm going to go ahead and say I was right. Glen Coffee and the running game was almost a no-show for the 49er's, who desperately need Frank Gore back. Coffee averaged 3.1 YPC and barely crossed the 3 yard mark because he had some big runs after the game was over. Vernon Davis was the #1 target.
  • Kyle Boller isn't the answer. Keith Null sure looked up when Boller got hit hard late in the game.

That's all for now, look for more in-depth 3k and VanRam analysis shortly. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
