Very good news!

I agree with some of the posters that mentioned the overuse of man defense in the game. We needed to drop into more zone coverages and hammer on those guys and slow them down a little. It was a good learning experience and something I'm sure they'll recognize in film study.

My larger concern was the inability to run the ball. Not only that but GB seemed to know exactly when it was a run and when it was play action... I have to believe they picked up a key on one of the linemen, or something. Only the straight drop back passes ever seemed to catch the Pack off guard... that was odd...

Let's see how the team responds. Remember, we had a short turn around, after the Monday night game and the defense had to adjust to Cushing's loss... It was predictable that they were going to struggle. The offense needs to step up and lead the team to a win this week and give the defense a chance to reorganize over the bye and fully prepare to continue without Cushing.

This post expressed my thoughts better than I could have myself.

I still think they need a vertical threat opposite AJ to help loosen things up in the run game, especially against good teams.

What I don't understand is "FIRE KUBIAK" after a game we lost because our defense gave up a gazillion points. Sure the offense was mediocre, but the defense was flat out bad. If you're going to call for somebody's head after that melt down wouldn't it be Son of Bum?

Of course nobody went there, because firing a coach over one game would be crazy... ahem.

Agreed... However, while it is early to have certainty, I believe Lestar Jean can fill this role very well... I also think Martin adds an explosive dynamic that is very useful in the slot. He just needs to be more consistent. So, I feel good about it. I think this team did not know how to respond to trailing by multiple scores late in the game and, therefore, reacted poorly. It was a good experience for them. We can not expect to simply manage the game constantly in the lead, especially against some of the better teams.

I'm hopeful we see some improvement this week. I certainly hope to see Lestar Jean stretching the field some this week. Let's keep an eye on how many snaps he has with AJ... versus replacing him.

Jeans inability to stay healthy bothers me. Martin is a player. Perfect slot guy/KR/PR.

The defense really missed Cushings intensity/leadership when things got tough. Much more than I thought they would.

The 49ers have never lost back to back games since Harbaugh got there. Granted, they've only had 4 opportunities to date, but it's still an interesting stat. I've got a personal criteria for judging good teams. Good teams do not lose three in a row.

Not losing back to back games over a 24 game period.... that's elite.

I think we need to fire kubiak ASAP and rehire capers because its clear that he can right this sinking ship. We are 5-1. I'd rather be 6-0 but ill take it. Kubiak is not bill Walsh but we could be in worse situations so calm the Phuket down people.

I saw it coming. As soon as AJ caught that ball into FG territory, I knew Kubes was gonna go ultra conservative. Why not keep attacking for a better percentage FG? We had 2 timeouts. I know I wasn't the only one who saw that coming. Someone back me up here. Settling for a long FG even pre-false start.
