Really? Ted Ginn Jr saved the day?!! I was traveling yesterday and had a chance to catch the game in Reno. The Niners did a great job of controlling the clock in the first half. In the third quarter, Harbaugh started to get conservative and not throwing the ball down the field to stretch the defense. The offense did a good job of not turning over the ball. Frank Gore looked like he was afraid to get hurt. The defense played great, but gave up a couple of easy touchdowns toward the end. The Niners need to workout some issues with their secondary. If the defensive lines keeps playing at this level, we might be looking at the NFC West champions.
Last week, the 49ers restructured Ted Ginn Jr's contract. He took a 1.2 million dollar pay cut. Of course, with the new contract, he can earn it back based on his playing time, return yards, and touchdowns. Trent Baalke did it again! The incentives worked to product two late touchdowns to save the game. In my eyes, special teams was the hero of the game along. Andy Lee had another great day pinning the Seahawks back. David Akers was perfect...again. If the defense and special teams keep playing at this level, they might make up for the struggling offense. What was your highlight from the game?
