Another spirited battle by the 49ers

Cheap Jimmy Garoppolo Jersey , but unfortunately it still ended in another loss. The loss came due to the same issues that they have had all season long. They turned the ball over and they could not pressure the quarterback. The 49ers lost a 10 point lead and fell to the New York Giants 27-23. Eli Manning was able to find Sterling Shepard for the game-winning touchdown and hand Nick Mullens his 1st loss. In his 2nd start, Nick had the 49ers up, but the defense was unable to hold on to the lead.The biggest issue all season for the 49ers have been their turnovers and their inability to force turnovers. Nick Mullens had a great debut on Thursday Night Football a couple of weeks ago where he did not have a turnover. On Monday however, he had 2 interceptions. One gave the Giants the ball at the SF 12 yard line. The Giants would go on to score on a Odell Beckham touchdown to take a 7-3 lead. The 2nd interception gave the Giants the ball at midfield. The defense was able to hold the Giants off and they were forced to punt. The difference in most of the games they have lost has come down to the turnovers. If they can fix that issue, they could have more wins. The 49ers are hoping Nick takes care of the ball more like the Raiders game rather than the Giants game.The bright spots this season have been Matt Breida and George Kittle. They continued their great seasons on Monday night. Breida ran 17 times for 101 yards and a touchdown. He also had 31 yards in the air with a touchdown. He is in the top 10 in rushing yards. George Kittle had 9 catches for 83 yards. He is 3rd in the league for passing yards by a tight end. Both could hit 1,000 yard seasons and Kittle seems to be a lock for a Pro Bowl spot. Incredible seasons for an undrafted running back and a 5th round pick from a year ago. 49ers linksThe 49ers need to start winning these close games | Another win gone (Biderman)Need to learn how to win | Win slipped thru their hands (Florio)Ahkello (Biderman)Letting leads slip (Inman)Decent performance until the 4th quarter | Game grades (Cohn)Just above the Raiders in the power rankings (Madson)Tremendous season from Matt | Matt Breida’s breakout season (Madson)Currently holding the #2 pick (Madson)Paradise high school football team were featured on MNF (Cohn)Marquise’s head injury (Maiocco)Mullens should stay the starter for the rest of the season | Who will start at QB in the next game?

Week 2 comes to a close later tonight when the Chicago Bears host the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football.MNF is a huge game 49ers Adrian Colbert Jersey , and really this week was a huge one for any team that opened the season 0-1. Entering Week 2, we regularly heard the stat about 0-2 teams not making the playoffs. Something like 90 percent of teams that start the regular season 0-2 do not make the playoffs. The Seahawks and Bears both lost last week, so the loser of Monday Night Football gets to fall into that category.In reality, the stat is kind of bogus for purposes of discussion. Most teams that start 0-2 are not good football teams, and when a good team stumbles out of the gate, they’ve likely got better than 10 percent odds of making the playoffs. And yet, it is still something worth tracking because Cheap Mike McGlinchey Jersey , why not?There are six teams that now sit at 0-2 following Sunday’s contests: Arizona Cardinals, Detroit Lions, New York Giants, Oakland Raiders, Houston Texans, Buffalo Bills. Barring a tie, either the Seahawks or Bears will join this list.Meanwhile Cheap Fred Warner Jersey , the list of 2-0 teams features a mix of expected and unexpected teams. On the one hand, the Kansas Jacksonville Jaguars and Los Angeles Rams make sense. The Denver Broncos are not entirely shocking given their schedule to open the season, and the same holds true for the Cincinnati Bengals. The Kansas City Chiefs seem a spot below that, unless you were big on Patrick Mahomes.That leaves us with the Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Dolphins beat the Tennessee Titans at home and then beat the New York Jets on the road. Neither were gimmes, but they were not shocking wins. The Bucs, on the other hand, are a whole different beast. They went into the Big Easy and beat the New Orleans Saints in a shootout 49ers Brock Coyle Jersey , and then welcomed the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles with a victory. How for real are the Bucs?Our 49ers sit at 1-1, a game back of the Rams in the NFC West. I am fascinated to see what comes of tonight’s Seahawks-Bears game. I am picking the Bears to win and cover the 4.5 point spread, in part because I think their defensive front will decimate that Seahawks offensive line. Of course, underdogs were 10-4 against the spread on Sunday, so I would not be at all surprised to see the Seahawks go on the road and knock off the Bears. Chicago could have a great defense this year, but they still have a second-year quarterback facing a lot of questions. But a 1-1 Seahawks team is a lot different than an 0-2 Seahawks squad in my mind.
