        Those three plays the Patriots ran in the SB last year -- that Dan Orlovsky was talking about is called Hoss Y Juke... the Patriots ran in with different looks but similar concept on three consecutive plays.

                                              Nah, 49ers held the ravens to there lowest score, stats, and made Lamar fumble for the first time. The 49ers are more impressive

I look at every team each to specialized in different areas why is it so hard for haters to accept the ravens. Not too long ago we had the best defense in the league where was all the haters then ?

                                                                                Jackson was incredible. We expected him to be incredible though. But could the 49ers defense contain him? They limit him to just _two_ TDs... to just 20 Points. Though I am more impressed with the Ravens as a team, I think my opinion about the 49ers (and especially their defense come playoff time) is what impressed me more about _THIS_ particular game.

                                                                                • Jose Palomo

                                                                                    Just one adjustment and the 49ers win this game. The DE's for the 49ers were responsible for the run, they ignored Jackson and crashed on the RB. Next game I guarantee the DE's will be responsible for Jackson, ignore the RB and hit Jackson every time he keeps or pretends to keep ball, let the rest of the DL and LB's take stop the RB.

Get as close as you can in fg range. 4 & 1and you pass? Mostert avg 7 ypg! Why not a counter run, or QB sneak. If you're going to pass then why not throw a screen to Juzyczck or Kittle.. It's all good 9ers will learn from it
