Adding Insult to Injury

This past Sunday the 49ers lose a heartbreaker to the Dallas Cowboys, 34-31. Keyshawn Johnson caught the game winning touchdown pass from Drew Bledsoe with only 1:51 left in the 4th quarter. The killer of this game is that the 49ers were up 31-19 at the start of the 4th quarter and let the Cowboys score 15 unanswered points.

“It's unacceptable to lose that game,” 49ers coach Mike Nolan said. “They ought to feel the same way. It's unacceptable. We're not a 2-14 football team. When you all of a sudden think that you're a 2-14 football team, that's an OK performance.”

And to makes matters worse, Drew Bledsoe surpassed Joe Montana on the NFL all-time yards passing list. Well it’s time for the 49ers to get out of this rut and the Arizona Cardinals is a good team to get back to winning.

K.O. for T.O.

After winning the first game of the season, the 49ers immediately turned their attention to next week. On Sunday, September 19, the 49ers will be going to Philadelphia to face the Eagles. But a better way of saying it is that the 49ers will be playing ex-teammate Terrell Owens. Owens left a bitter taste in a lot of people’s mouths when he left, especially 49ers linebacker Derek Smith. Smith said, “I’d love to get a shot on him.” When asked about his thoughts of his ex-teammate, linebacker Jeff Ulbrich said, “I wish I could tell you how I really felt.” Well it sounds like the defense is gunning for T.O. But the real question on everyone’s mind is, what does T.O. have up his sleeve for his touchdown dance? I know I’ll be watching.

Moving On Down the Road

September 5, 2005, is a date that will remain in 49ers and NFL fans’ minds for years to come. This is the date that the greatest receiver, possibly football player, quit the game we came to love to watch him play. Grant it Jerry Rice didn’t finish his career with the 49ers like he should have, but no one can doubt that an era has certainly come to an end in the NFL. At the news conference on Monday, Rice broke down and said, “I never thought I'd ever see this day.” Well we hoped we’d never see this day either, Jerry. We’ll miss you
