The New York Giants came to San Francisco today and took it to the Niners. The NIners that came into the game with a much improved offense sure did not look like it. While they started off the game with a very good looking 12 play drive but ended it with nothing as David Akers failed to convert on the field goal. As the game went on it continued to be mistakes and poor play by the special teams and offense that doomed the Niners on this day.
The Special teams once again failed the team against the Giants while there were no turnovers the coverage unit which has been porous all season allowed the Giants to kill the emotion coming out of the half with a 60 yard return. It was bad enough that after a possible game changing block by Terelle Brown, Akers missed a 52 yard field goal that would have cut the lead to 4. It was that miss at the end of the half and the kick return and ensuing touchdown that put the NIners in panic position. From that point on the Niners got away from what they did well and that is run the ball. Greg Roman and the Niners tried to force the ball down field instead of rely on Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter and the rest of the creative running attack we as fans have been seeing.
