49ers fortunate to escape with 1st win after near collapse

Monday, September 17th, 2018

Nearly squandering a 17-point fourth quarter lead left a sour taste in the mouths of the San Francisco 49ers following their first win of the season. San Francisco held on for a 30-27 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday in a game that they seemed to have wrapped up before needing a favorable penalty call to escape. San Francisco (1-1) led the game 30-13 before allowing Matthew Stafford to throw two touchdown passes to get the Lions back into the game.

The 49ers (1-1) broke out to a 30-13 lead behind two touchdown passes from Jimmy Garoppolo and a 66-yard TD run by Matt Breida only to see most of it evaporate on a pair of TD passes by Matthew Stafford in the fourth quarter for the Lions (0-2).

49ers learn a lesson after letting big lead slip in win over Lions

Sunday, September 16th, 2018

The 49ers now are 1-1, but to keep you hooked for next week, we can report that nothing of substance was revealed Sunday. In escaping the Detroit Lions, 30-27, the 49ers largely showed that they have the capability to dominate an inferior team but are not assured enough to finish them. Or, to quote Richard Sherman, which always is a good place to go, they need to learn "not to take a sigh when you're up, 30-13." In other words, to allow 182 yards and two scores once you take said lead, which is more a matter of player attention than scheme flaws.

Why Josh Gordon is too risky for 49ers in the Lynch-Shanahan rebuild

Sunday, September 16th, 2018

The San Francisco 49ers apparently are the hot new funnel for disgruntled players, which is why Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions became in part a referendum on Josh Gordon.
