I’ll tip my hat to the second half effort. Still a lot of season left, but they have to beat Cinci next week.


    Next - Minkah, #39!

Those 2 sacks were hard to watch... It's shame Cam worked his ass off on Defense to try and get this game. All for wasted effort by others.... Canada has to go!

This ^^^^^^

Kinda reminds me of the time wasted when Walton was OC: “it’s the plays… not the players…” ugh… let’s keep running stupid plays long after they’re proven not to work…double ugh…

This is not a playoff team… definitely not a playoff caliber defense!

You can't take two all-pro's that a defense is built around out of the mix and then say that.    Remove a Minkah Fitzpatrick and TJ Watt from any defense and there's going to be a noticeable effect.   

The comeback was all Ben and Najee.   Our WR's leave a lot to be desired.   

Cam is a freakin beast.

Ultimately, SD made a couple more plays.

Not basing that (solely) on last night's game.  Barely beat Seattle's JV squad (while making Geno Smith look like an all-pro...think about that... Geno freakin' Smith... SMH). Same for Chicago.  All 3 inside linebackers absolutely stink! Against the run, against the pass, doesn't matter... they stink!  Not going anywhere with that level of play from the LBs. (what do you think Lamar Jackson was thinking watching that game... Ugh!)
While we're at it so does the O'Line... 3.1 yards per carry against the NFL's 32nd-ranked run defense... and all of that came from Najee's efforts, no holes, hit at or behind the line on almost every run...

No ones bashing here.... Im saying the Play calling has been suspect all season now. The defense got us out of the game but also put us back in it with the turn overs and sepcial teams on the block.  In the end its was the O - Line that killed us...

   I'll take big Ben any day with 2 min left in the 4th and good receivers that can get off the blocks.

Bosa simply shoved Greene back into the backfield.  He gets that all the time.  This team missed badly on building and offensive line.  BADLY.  No other words for what we've witnessed this year.  Tomlin's time is up.  But hey he got 3 more years from the owners.  On we go
