Yeah it is a little bit. Plus hurts their chances at having a first round bye. But still, it could have been so much better....
Guess you missed the part where he lead the Rams to a go-ahead TD in the final minute, threw a perfect pass in OT that should have won the game (but for a BS illegal formation call), and finished with a passer rating of 104 against one of the best defense in the league on their home field.
You know what... I want to thank you. For a minute there, I thought there was nothing worse than watching the Rams miss a golden opportunity to get a big win. Then I read your post.
I agree that Fisher should have milked more clock. But what's equally inexcusable is that our defense allowed Colin Kaepernick- a backup- to orchestrate a drive down the field for a game-tying field goal. Can't happen.
Bottom line is that even with all of that, we had the game won TWICE in OT, but killed ourselves with stupid penalties. Clearly, we have a lot of learning to do.
It doesn't matter what he'd done before or after that, it was just an observation on my part and one of the reasons many of us are not completely sold on him yet.
If you take your head out of his @$$, you could see that.
Immediately reminded me of Jim "don't call me Criss" Everett. And how ironic, it came against the fortuniners.
When a pass rusher gets a free run up the middle on Bradford, I would rather he hit the deck and keep the ball safe than try and make something of it and possibly cough up the ball. Especially in OT.
That feeling's mutual.
As for being in the minority, I couldn't care less about being in the minority about anything if I believe in it. And I couldn't care less than that, about who might be annoyed.
Learned a long time ago, you won't please everybody no matter what you do, so no point in trying.
And Sam still reminded me of Jim "don't call me Criss" Everett, on that play.
Why don't you just admit it?
It was not a phantom sack.
And there was nothing ironic about it.
The guy was on him quicker than a heartbeat. Bradford did not even have time to throw it away. He was simply protecting the ball at that point.
Sam did seem to just drop when Aldon Smith came through the line - before Smith got there. At first I wondered "What the hell? Can't you like, scramble or something?", but you have to remember that Smith is loooooong and getting away from that dude is pretty hard. At best Sam gets one step to the left then Smith wraps him up and slams him to the ground. I think I'd just duck and cover at that point too.
Everett went down when he was NOT about to get hit.
Sam went down to preserve valuable seconds on the clock when he was CERTAIN to be hit.
If you can't comprehend the difference, then you don't understand football.
No shame there. You're probably good at a lot of other things.
I said it reminded me (key word being me) of Jim "don't call me Criss" Everett.
I realize a lot of people are upset and probably not in their right minds right now, but I'm having a hard time figuring out what is so hard to understand about that.
how bout the refs wasting about 20 seconds at the end spotting the ball...could have cost us a Zeurlein FG attempt..
Two penalties in particular, of course. http://www.sherv.net/cm/emo/angry/3d-mad.gif
