    I'm not actually watching the game but I just put on Seattle and Denver because it's on and I've seen like 3 plays and Tebow looks awful. Face/Off was better than this game.

    I can't be happy about that sack as I'm still horribly ticked about that call on Weddle.
    My take away from this game so far is that I hope this team doesn't call any of our games during the Regular season.

    I was seriously expecting those flags on the sack to be against us.

    Some great blocking there finally allows Mathews to break off a huge run!

    Yea unlike dumass coaches like Todd Haley the third game of the Pseason is always tradition to have the starters play at least into the third quarter. Knowing Norv, hes gonna play em pretty far as what is normal.

    Also this surge is reminding me of how Norv has been for us year in year out game after game. We play games slow and cautious as far as playcalling to read what the other teams plan is. Then we come out of halftime with our adjustments/or just we start playing balls out and we look like the dominant team that should have been wining from the getgo.

    Funny how everyone harps on the slow start to the season, but I only realized it last year that we play games like our season play out as well.

    Big drop by Floyd there. The ball was perfect from Rivers.

    4 point game.

    That's likely it for the starters.

    Damn Floyd dropped that.

    Would have been a nice end to a nice night by Rivers.

    That run was great a truck lane up the gut and RM went untouched.

    Does anyone else watch to see if our gunners make it to the ball carrier even if its a TB? I always do, and I jus saw 2 chargers down there ready to shut the return down before the whistle was finished being blown/ returner kneeling the ball.

    God Tim Tebow looks like garbage. I haven't been paying attention though but every play I see it's just awful.

    Why does NFL's Game center say this: 1-10-ARI 49(2:41) R.Bartel pass short middle to J.Dray to SD 38 for 13 yards (M.Tolbert).

    I'm done watching this game.

    Our D has looked absolutely terrible the whole night, and I really don't want them suck this much anymore.

    It was nice of the 2nd and 3rd stringers to bring home the "w"...but our running game and defense still need some work. Three games worth of solid special teams so far, it looks like they did get that fixed. I hope Vincent Brown gets more of a chance to show what he can do against the 49'ers. ***Obvious alert!*** It looks to me like Walters and Gamble will be sticking around.
    ....is it Thursday yet?

    And who do we cut to make room for him?

    Crayton? Ajirotutu? Vinent Brown? We're already 5 deep at WR.

    We need a kick returner....... either Walters or Goodman. None of those three can do that job.

    Bye-Bye Brown.

    Walters has been a lot more impressive.
