Default The official the Defense still sucks.

I realize it's a preseason game but it's apparent the run defense still sucks. Ron Fields is the man in the middle and that isn't a good thing. The career backup can't hold the point of attack and take care of his gap responsibilities. DJ well is still DJ and making a lot of postiive gain tackles. Pass rush was pretty weak other when the othe journeyman QB held on to the ball forever. I think it's going to be a long season guys lets hold on tight.

I actually saw promise in our defense... granted, with Orton as a backdrop anything looks good.

What is sad is we game planned for this game while the Niners treated it like the first preseason game. Loved the all out blitz though.

Wasn't thrilled. A lot of big runs, a lot of big passes. SF QBs went 14/18 and RBs averaged 4.5 yards per carry. No turnovers.

The four sacks are promising, but there is definitely room for improvement. Still plenty of time.

Wasn't impressed with your guys' pass rush despite the sacks. The two sacks on Hill were both blown blocks by their TE with the long dreads (Singletary is going to have fun yelling at that guy during film study) and Hill held on to the ball way too long on that second sack.

But I thought Denver's run defense looked good in the first quarter. Even though it wasn't Gore out there, that was definitely a surprise to me.

If i see the word tough on this board one more time I'm going to puke...


We're practicing with pads... makes us tough

were stretching longer than before ... 'cause tough players arr limber

were running wind sprints after practice... yeah that's right, were tough

we're playing our starters every minute of every preseason game... cause tough guys can't get injured.

Orton couldn't hold Cutlers jock... yeah, well, he's tough.

look man youre missing the point winning games and going 8 and 8 means nothing if you don't win tough. If you win just one game but you do it with pride and its tough then you have do so much more then the team that won 8 games soft.

STFU NOOB .... Frank Gore 0 yds 0.0 average.

Seriously.

The only TD given up by anyone who will actually play on a Sunday this year, was a 6yd drive.

I saw positive from Orton, picks aside, but that is for a different thread.

I was in the chat room for most of the first half and many of us were impressed with the first team defense. You'd have to be blind to not see a world of difference from last year. I think I witnessed our front 7 win more one on one battles in the first half than all of last year.

Stick with me here, I did not say they did or did not. I asked you--How do you know they did not game plan? So, how do you know?

appreciation threads vs official suck threads. Don't know which is worse. Both are wrong to a degree.

Well, I can't defend Orton tonight, as much as I would like to, because 3 int's in 3 drives is indefensible. Hopefully he gets better next week.

But I do agree with you on the defense, and special teams for that matter. I saw a lot of positives that will probably only get better as the season goes on.

Because teams don't game plan for their opponents in the first preseason game, well except for Wade Phillips and McD. In other words I'm saying they didn't prove me wrong.

And you know that for a fact huh? I got a news-flash for you, every team in the league prepares for the other team in preseason.

The difference is to what degree they put into it. All we know about the Broncos is that they used a typical scouting team in practice to prepare for the 49'ers, but McD admitted he wouldn't put in a detailed game plan that he might use in a regular season game.

What we don't know is, to what degree the 49er's game-planned for us? And apparently, neither do you.
