The champ of this contest will remain in the National Football Conference West contest while the loser will probably be from the cash for the remainder of the way.
The 49ers were locked out 21-0 at home by the Tampa bay buccaneers Sunday, probably reinvigorating controversy at the quarterback spot for the Red and Gold.
Tampa had not won in California in a while, and it was even longer since the 49ers were shutout at Candlestick Park. What happened that fateful afternoon, nevertheless, was a perfect storm of san francisco 49ers disappointment in .
Expecting pouring rain, a lot of penalties, and a hard fought battle for some restless die-hard fans, it ended up to be a gorgeous day, they performed hardly any fouls, and got skunked in a completely uninspired attempt put forth for a fairly weak audience.
Maybe the worst element is that entire National Football Conference lost, making this week fundamentally a wash, as the division standings are basically unaltered. The badly rusty silver lining is the fact that 49ers are still simply two games behind the Seahawks or the National Football Conference West division lead.
The stink bomb laid by the offense under the instruction of Troy Smith worked as a grim reality check for the faithful. Devotees were living on the prayer that the squad can rally from among the worst starts in franchise history and make the playoffs.
After starting 2-0 and building over 350 yards vs the Rams, Troy Smith seemed to perhaps be the future of the quarterback position for San Francisco, supplanting Alex Smith. A shut out nevertheless, is one challenge that cannot be disregarded. In any sport, you need to put up more than zero points to win.
Considering that Alex Smith’s shoulder is healed, there will be consideration as to whether or not he or Troy Smith will be the starter down the road.
It’s really no secret that Alex Smith is known for a history of being insulted by fans and press alike. So far labeled as a bust, his record of leading the squad to near losses definitely helped him generate the popularity of a mistake maker. Defenses have admitted to planning their defensive strategies based on putting the ball in his hands.
Alex is 1-5 as a starter this year, but even he has not been locked out. There’s genuinely no conclusion worth drawing when measuring up the 2 presently. Troy will get yet another shot Monday night against the Cardinals and if he can aid the offense redeem itself on the road against a division foe, the flames of qb debate will diminish. Should they stumble and drop again, it will spell predicament with a capital Quarterback.
