After several weeks now of seeing the run defense slip, this was a spectacular turn around against a guy who has been a real thorn in the side. Of all the great things that happened last night, that was most satisfying thing, IMO. Even better than watching Harbaugh stew all night...
Going in, that was the guy I was really worried about; by the end of game, he was just a "rumor"...
strangely enough he averaged more per carry than lynch. I was surprised they didn't establish a run, even though its obvious getting behind early forced them to play to a much more aggressive game plan. the most satisfying part of last night for me had to be vernon davis getting crushed by Kam. I've been telling my niners friend all about kam for about a year now, showing him all his best hits on youtube and stuff. now I think he knows what I've been talking about!
Very strange game plan by the 49ers last night. Young QB, on the road in a tough environment, raining, playing a team that Gore usually eats for lunch...and they come out throwing it all over the place?

Well, to be fair, I do not think they planned on abandoning the run game so early. I can understand trying to attack a rookie cornerback on the first series. They quickly found themselves down 7-0, and then 14-0 and the gameplan began to permanently become pass first. After the blocked field goal they were forced to be far away from anything that they wanted to do.
