San Francisco 49ers Hats , the San Francisco 49ers traveled to face the Carolina Panthers in the divisional round of the 2014 NFL playoffs. The 49ers came to town after winning a close one in freezing cold Green Bay. The 49ers actually ended up a one-point road favorite, and after a tight second quarter, the 49ers walked away with the game in the second half.There were plenty of highlights from the game, but one of my favorites was a miscue by the 49ers. The Panthers had a 3rd and goal with a little over five minutes to go. Ahmad Brooks had tackled Panthers quarterback Cam Newton the play before for no gain, getting credit for a sack. Brooks had a huge game that day, with 2.5 sacks and three quarterback hits San Francisco 49ers Hoodie , but the next play on that drive was not a highlight.Brooks tried to time the Panthers snap count, and leap over to sack Newton or stop the running back in the backfield. Instead, this happened.Perhaps you’d like to see it in slow motion as well.I don’t know what’s funnier. Brooks flying through the air for the clear encroachment penalty, or Cam Newton flopping to the ground like he just got absolutely bulldozed in spite of the fact that Brooks flew over him and barely grazed him with his foot.The Panthers ended up only getting three points out of the drive. It was goal to go, so the Panthers did not get a new set of downs. On the next play, Mike Tolbert was stopped for a one-yard loss and the Panthers settled for a field goal to take a 10-6 lead. The 49ers would score a touchdown on the next drive to close out the half and they would never relinquish the lead.That Panthers game was kind of an odd one in the history of that period for the 49ers. The prior week had been a grudge match of sorts in Green Bay Cheap Customized San Francisco 49ers Jerseys , and the following week was a brutal loss in Seattle. The 49ers looked good in that Panthers game, and yet it has been relatively overlooked in light of the surrounding games. But man, that might be one of my favorite random plays from the Jim Harbaugh era.“I just want to win football games” - Joe Staley keeps it pretty plain and simple Through the trials and tribulations of the first five weeks of the 49ers 2018 season, one of the players you feel for the most is veteran tackle Joe Staley. For the younger members of the team, looking forward towards future seasons is always a bright spot in tough times, but for Staley Nick Mullens Jersey , how much time does he really have left? He entered the offseason with a very positive outlook when the expectations were at their height, but who can blame him if all he wants is to win games now. When asked about what it said about the team still being in the game to the end, Staley was pretty clear: Some of the offensive struggles have been simply the health of the offensive line. Staley, along with Mike McGlinchey and Weston Richburg have all been nursing knee injuries. After the game, when asked if his knee held him back, Staley stated succinctly Nick Mullens 49ers Jersey , “I was out there so I was expected to go 100%.” Staley explained the frustration further:In the rest of his post game interview, Staley discussed the technical side of what happened to the offense and what he felt they could have done better. His frustration and need to win, however, was more telling. Staley is 34 years old and is under contract through the 2019 season after he signed restructured contract in April of this year. Bonding with his team BFF McGlinchey has kept him young at heart and enthusiastic, but hopefully another tough season doesn't change his perspective entirely and he still ends up playing out his contract. Here is there rest of his interview: San Francisco 49ers QB C.J. Beathard didn’t get hit as much this week as last week, but he still got hit a few times. Is he still showing that toughness and leadership?“Yeah Quarterback Nick Mullens Jersey , definitely. He’s back there trying to do what he’s got to do. We’ve got to give him more time. We had a play-action pass there in the 3rdquarter. We’ve got to anticipate the up-field rush there and not go as hard on the run. He wasn’t biting on it. We’ve got to do a better job. That’s what I can focus on.”How much did losing San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida, impact things especially with the start that he got?“We still moved the ball in the run game. The whole thing comes down to five turnovers. You’re not going to win in football. We were still able to move the ball. I thought [San Francisco 49ers RB] Alfred [Morris] did a great job moving the ball. But we’ve just got to not turn the ball over.” When the difference is turnovers, is it harder for a team to adjust and correct that? You outplayed them in a lot of ways.“We’ve got to continue to do what we’re doing. I had one play that affected the turnover differential. I gave up that sack-fumble. That’s what I’ve got to focus on. That’s what I can improve on, the play-action and being more aware of the situation and understanding that he’s not going to bite on the run-action. I’ve got to adjust my set and give C.J. more time to go downfield.”
