    1 down, 15 to go.

    Couldn't believe the amount of Niner fans in Jerry's house. Probably cost less than trying to buy a home game ticket.

    Kaep made some great throws. Hyde looks like the 2nd back the Niners have long searched for

    Was a home game for the 9ers no doubt about it. Wonder if Arizona and St. Louis will look similar.

    Under the circumstances with the injuries to the starting CB's and the fact the officials were trying really hard to make a game of it in the second half, it was a good win.

    The offense looked like they could do whatever they wanted in the passing game so hopefully Roman builds on that instead of going back to run, run, pass as the main line of strategy.

    Hyde needs to share carries with Gore at the very least. The kid is a battering ram and offers explosion Frank doesn't possess anymore. If they share the carries this running game will be one of the best in the league by seasons end imo.

    Donate Johnson looks like another Baalke CB gem. Really held his own and didn't look out of place.

    Run defense and pass rush wasn't great but they were up against a great Oline so I won't panic yet. Hopefully there is clear improvement in those areas against the Bears.

    No reason to expect anything other than a win this week. Bears look like the defense is still struggling and Cutler is still giving presents to the opposition. Let's hope for a repeat of Kap's first game as a starter two years ago.

    Dial and Tank have to play. There is no justification to have Carrier and Dobbs active over them. Special teams don't matter as much if you can't force punts.

    A win to kick off the season is always a good thing. The defense in general outplayed the offense. They gave up substantial yards with Murray, but that seemed to be the Cowboys plan even late into the game. Down a couple of superstars, then losing both corners, but they held together quite well. Justin Smith looked like he did a couple of years ago, which is essential for the time being. D Johnson looked pretty solid in his first outing. Romo made some of his traditional throws but it seemed that he lacked zip on the ball....I suspect he's still recovering from the back issue.

    The bottom line is, Tony Romo and co. gave this game to us - fumble returned for a TD, an int setting SF up on the Dallas two yard line. Basically....the Niners offense totalled 14 points. When going up against a historically bad defense, which actually lost some of it's best players, that is a bit underwhelming. The first drive was pretty electric, but beside the other TD march....generally nothing. Yeah, a couple of drives were basically killed by penalties, (some legit and some bull****) one ended on a missed FG, and SF took the foot off the pedal and went to the ground game to run out the clock.....I still wanted to see a bit more.

    On to the home opener against a similar team to the Cowboys, in the Bears.

    The offense moved the ball at will most of the game.

    The defense couldn't stay off the field because they couldn't stop the run. Relying on turnovers on defense is a losing strategy.
