  • Steven A you are a real hater you are beginning to get on my last nerve as a matter of fact you have got on my last nerve in your irritating Lamar Jackson is the best quarterback even other teams like him you are just say true hater

  • That was an embarrassing take by SAS. He's made the program a total joke and let Lamar's play expose him for not really knowing football. That's why he's unnatually animated & hysterically loud to overshadow that he's clueless or pretending, if schtick & comedy skits is the direction the network wants to take sports entertainment.

  • Without the rainy conditions, and on neutral ground, how do y'all think it really plays out? I don't think it's as close as ppl think. SF is for real. BAL got lucky with a field goal as time expires (Don't forget Robbie Gould isn't missing the kicks that SFs backup kicker has been shanking) Not to mention just having Kittle and Brieda contributing minimally has a SF win written all over it.

  • Honestly I'm a 49er fan but to be honest are you guys impressed by the whole ravens team or just Lamar Jackson because that's what it sounds like not gonna lie good game but dam if it wasn't for Lamars running game I dont know how it would have ended but I'm not gonna say "but what if" give the whole team credit

  • Just one adjustment and the 49ers win this game. The DE's for the 49ers were responsible for the run, they ignored Jackson and crashed on the RB. Next game I guarantee the DE's will be responsible for Jackson, ignore the RB and hit Jackson every time he keeps or pretends to keep ball, let the rest of the DL and LB's take stop the RB.

    Matt JohnsonMatt Johnsonپیش 5 ماه
  • 49ers should of drove the ball with 3 timeouts before the half. Take a shot to score a td, if not, take 3 pts. Get as close as you can in fg range. 4 & 1and you pass? Mostert avg 7 ypg! Why not a counter run, or QB sneak. If you're going to pass then why not throw a screen to Juzyczck or Kittle.. It's all good 9ers will learn from it
