From the Armchair: San Francisco 49ers, Week 5
The 49er defense was on it's 'A' game allowing the Houston offense only 313 total yards in a 34-3 thrashing on Sunday night in San Francisco. The game was never in doubt as the 49ers played a mistake free game and forced 4 Houston turnovers, they controlled the time of possession and had only 3 penalties which had been a problem the first 4 games of the season. The game never reached a great level of excitement as it was over almost as soon as it began.
The main concern for the folks here in San Francisco is the recent play of Colin Kaepernick as he was only 6-15 for 113 yards, 64 of those coming on a TD pass to Vernon Davis. He hasn't shown the explosiveness he brought last season and seems to be a bit out of synch. The 49ers schedule eases up a little with Arizona coming to town and a trip to London to play Jacksonville at the end of the month. Here's hoping Colin finds his groove before Seattle comes to town.
