Ratty's Welcome Back Party

Through all the injuries and doubtfulness the Niners QB Tim Ratty seemed to be following suit of the greats before him. I know you all might be thinking that is pretty a big statement, but Ratty set a new Franchise record with 38 completions surpassing Joe Montana's 37 completion game on Novemeber 6, 1985 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Now when you think about the previous quarterbacks in San Francisco, that will open some eyes. Tim Rattay also threw for career high 417 yards, with 2 touchdown passes and a not single interception in 57 attempts. Rattay also threw for one 2 point conversion and ran another 2 point conversion in him self.

Rattay brought the Niners back from a 16 point deficit in the 4th quarter. The score went from 12 - 28 to 31 - 28(OT). Ratty also got NFC player of the week award. God job. Rattay utilized TE Eric Johnson as his main weapon.

Johnson had career high numbers as well, and now he leads the league with 41 receptions. Not bad for an Ivy league guy(also Walsh's last pick).
GO NINERS

Lets Turn it Around!

Come on, guys! It's time for a win. This is an important game and it's on home turf, and I'm tired of the "soooo close, but not quite" pattern that has developed. Take down those Cardinals!

Bay Area Beatings!!

Ugh. Morale is currently low in the Bay-area, however, for football at at least, there is plenty of time to recover. From nfl.com:

First the Oakland A's were knocked out of Major League Baseball playoff contention on Saturday, then the San Francisco Giants followed suit on Sunday. And to cap off a rough weekend in the Bay Area, the San Francisco 49ers were soundly beaten 24-14 by the St. Louis Rams on Sunday night to fall to 0-4 on the season. After being shutout for the first time in nearly 27 years in their Week 3 loss, the 49ers offense struggled again and didn't get on the scoreboard until the fourth quarter. The Rams came out firing and scored all 24 of their points in the first half to put the Niners in a hole they could not climb out of. "When you've lost four like we have, obviously there's some fractured confidence and some fractured morale," coach Dennis Erickson said. "All we can do is fight through it."
