  1. LaMont the Shadow says:

    Have the 49ers ever had a QB with Colin Kaepernick’s combination of Size,Speed and arm strength?

  2. Pidge says:

    Alex Smith still sucks.

  3. Flocka from the Bay says:

    The 49ers are struggling on the offense and the defense. This is depressing.

  4. Jason Garcia says:

    Pathetic, it is going to be a long season, what were the Niners thinking by not making any significant moves other than Edwards. All I keep hearing about our offense is to be patient, all the while we are wasting the best years of the quality players we do have on defense and offense. It is only a matter of time until the trade demands start.

    1. Juntauo tillery says:

      Its really not the quarter back smith would do a better job with some blocking don’t matter who is back there the line is big and slow the coach knows this I think but still wants to focus in the wrong places its happen year after year

  5. Jessica says:

    I don’t think Kaepernick should sit out a year. Smith has had more than enough time to “develop.” Why not spend this year letting the rookie QB get hands on training and play the whole year. There is nothing to lose since it is more than likely we would have a losing season with Smith, so allowing a rookie to spend that time learning would be more beneficial. Look at Stafford and Bradford.

    1. mromero says:

      You are right on with this comment. Even in past games when the o line is holding the D back, he sucks!!

  6. Juntauo tillery says:

    Its really bad no blocking no matter who is the qb

  7. Jordan Sanchez says:

    I think that Jim Harbaugh is going to be a very sucessful head coach. I like how Jim drafted Kendall Hunter in the draft. Same with Colin Kaepernick I know Colin is going to be a playoff contender QB.

  8. Nina Cook says:

    signs pointing like its going to be a loooong season.

  9. Andy says:

    You can’t really blame Smith, or Kaepernick for that matter for the lack of yards. The O-line isn’t giving them anytime to throw, and the Niners defense hasn’t been able to stop the Texans once to put the Niners offense back on the field.

  10. Bill D says:

    Please Dennis shut up once and a while. During both last week and this you frequently IDed a player with the wrong team. Also last week you never said how long the 49er field goal was. This week you never IDed a holdiing penalty against Houston. Right now I think your 1 step above Dan Deardorff. PLEASE call the game and don’t worry so much about superfolous garbage no one cares about.

  11. Ruben Lopez says:

    NINERS should just sit Alex smith down and let kapernick show his full potential. Alex will never be a pro quarterback.

  12. Robert says:

    This team sucks. This offense won’t stay on the field no longer than 20 minutes a game. I don;t know why Alex Smith is still the starter. After 6 years I would thought by now you would relize he sucks. It is disappointing to be a 49er fan. i’m not even going to get hyped up about this team!!!

  13. paul B says:

    what the hell is our new couch doing????We need to do better then they are doing…They still suck as a team.Same as las year….

  14. Carol says:

    Gee, Alex still sucks Shocking! It’s going to be another long year.

    1. Andy says:

      How can you say he sucks when he gets hit on every single play? Not really fair judgement. I’d say the o-line sucks more than anything.

      1. Jessica says:

        Six years and he hasnt improved? You cant blame the o-line for that. Plus he only got 17 yds, Kaepernick got 15 yds with one completion. It’s sad he has rookie numbers and he’s not a rookie. so you do not have the perfect argument either

  15. Bern says:

    Tim the announcer sucks! He is talking about not understanding what Harbough is doing putting in the 2nd and 3rd stringers against a 1st team offense. Obviously Tim you did not watch the conference that says he is putting them in to earn their position. Obviously Harbough has an agenda and unfortunately for you Tim, you did not do your homework to have Harbough expand.

    Tim, now saying that Harbough’s plan has backfired for the first half. Are you serious? Now you know Harbough’s plans? Come on! Please comment on the football which is what you have experience in. You DON’T HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH COACHING!

    CBS, we are a top market and for these broadcasts, you are giving us amateur broadcasting! I know it is pre-season, but like the stands are empty, Your broadcasts ARE empty!

  16. Kim White says:

    Whew…the Niners have some extreme issues, first being, they seem to have a problem with the offensive blocking scheme…they’re going to get someone hurt.

    Secondly, the fans will not tolerate Smith being deemed the offensive leader of the niners…he’s had his chances and frankly, the fans have run out of patience….

    Thirdly, the niners lack confidence and continuity…It’s going to be a long season…

  17. Abby says:

    What is CBS thinking sprinkling in their second and third string broadcasters among first team fans. Tim needs to spend more time looking at the roster and the game so that he can properly broadcast to us first place Niner fans. Harbaugh’s plan is to see how our backups are going to stand up against starters. It is not about building confidence, it is purely evaluation. Maybe you should guys should really be thinking about what you say before you say it. I must say that I am glad that there is only one more game that we have to listen to these guys. I have almost turned down the sound and listen to the silence.

    1. Bern says:

      I completely agree Abby! Tim is HORRIBLE. I posted a similar comment just before you.

  18. Ethel May says:

    I cant say anything bad about Colin K. He’s a rookie. Look at his “mentor” ( Alex Smith) whos been there 7 years. Colin looks better then him. You think you hear boo’s now from the crowd, just wait till the regular season starts…you haven’t seen nothing yet. And that PR stunt with Jed York and the support of the fans; you keep on believing that Jed and you just might convince yourself….it’s so insulting to the 49er fan’s intelligence.

  19. Jose Ortiz says:

    I have a suggestion! Keep Alex Smith off the field and maybe the 49ers would have a chance.

  20. Nate the great says:

    The 9ers are the worst team and franchise going at this time tied with the Raiders. They play with NO heart and NO smarts. Alex Smith and the O-line should be released asap, trade Gore and Crabtree and get some damn draft picks like New England does it. Coach Harbaugh is terrible at this point, he gets an F so far, wake up coach and smell the NFL cause this ain’t college!!

    1. mromero says:

      why get rid of Gore? He didn’t even play plus he is the one who has gotten yardage when the qb can’t be even trusted to throw the ball. And I’m not talking about Colin. He should be the starter. I do agree that the O-line should be released they are the worse I’ve seen in a long time.

  21. ramon says:

    Tim —
    What positives signs can Harbaugh take away from this game???

  22. Milpitas Jim says:

    The worst part of the whole pre-season has been hearing Tim & Dennis with all the excuses for the 49ers. PLEASE stop with the excuses for every little thing! Suddenly I am finding the mute button very useful.

  23. Sam White says:

    All of those people who are expecting too much from the Niners need to tone it down a notch. We have a first year head coach and a rebuilding franchise. Rome wasn’t built in a day people. GIVE IT TIME!!!

    1. jake says:

      Preach it Brotha!!

    2. henry says:

      U sure know what ur talkin bout. Speak the Truth Bruh!

    3. Brian says:


    4. cook says:

      wake up..the organization from the top to the bottom is out of order…;-)

  24. Makia says:

    Is Harbaugh for real or is he just another college coach who is not gonna cut it in the NFL?

  25. Sam says:

    I don’t really care about how we look in pre-season (see last 2 years), I’d like to reserve my judgment for regular season.

  26. Ryan Peach says:

    I hear a lot of defensive players talking about what their not showing and what they have in store for the regular season, but I saw a lot of missed coverages tonight. What can they really being hiding that will change in the regular season to correct those issues?

  27. Sam Zaydel says:

    It looks like another rebuilding year for the niners. This is starting to get old. I think we have a great coach and supporting staff, but this far this is looking like a season similar to last.

  28. Mark says:

    Doesn’t matter who the head coach is, the offense line STILL can’t block! Or pick up blitzes!

  29. john says:

    Hey Gents, what do you make of the porous O-Line? By the 3rd pre-season game, I’d like to see far better QB protection so we could execute our offense a little bit.

  30. Mark says:

    The offensive line looks vulnerable, do you think we have a better chance with kaepernick because of his mobility vs alex smith?

  31. Nick says:

    Unlike most 49ers fans I think Alex Smith can be a good quarterback with proper protection. He does not have a chance to throw the ball.

  32. Oscar says:

    Who was the better Center tonight? Goodwin or SNyder?

  33. Dan in Palo Alto says:

    If Alex Smith simply can’t cut it in the first four games of the season, who should the Niners go with at quarterback? Kapernick or Josh McCown?

  34. Jeff says:

    It appears that Smith is waiting for everyone else to do their job so he will not be sacked instead of using any skills he may have as a quarterback to extend the play. How about getting off that horse and giving someone else a chance to develop into the QB that we really need. The sacks I saw tonight could have been avoided if he was more mobile. That is my two cents worth.

  35. Brian says:

    How did you think Alex Boone did in today’s game? Does he have a shot at being a starter?

  36. David Tapper says:

    Just Pathetic! I’m sick of the same old S…, and I’m being nice. The line sucks. No QB could be successful with that line, not Joe or Steve. No one.

    Do you think Staley is overrated, he’s terrible and he is supposed to be our best O lineman? Time to move him to the right side and draft a left tackle.


  37. SFNInerfan says:

    Man, Niners suck and the reason why is because the Yorks always bring back that bust of a QB named Smith. The secondary still sucks and will get blasted this season. Way to go NIners for another failed season. Maybe the Niners will do better in Santa Clara lol. Or maybe when the Yorks sell the team. Good night.

  38. Ryan says:

    How many rebuilding seasons does it take to get to the playoffs? We’ve been rebuilding since we drafted Smith. When are the important people within the organization going to figure that out??

  39. Reggie says:

    Coach Harbaugh, has a plan…0 – 16 and a little luck next year.

  40. says:

    Smith will succeed once he quits the nfl and goes back to play for a college team.

  41. Tony Mendoza says:

    Harbaughs plan . 1st pick in nfl draft next year.

  42. ike says:

    Smith is a bust and the 49ers need to face that fact.

  43. Tony M says:

    Harbaughs plan : Get QB’s killed. This game was pointless

  44. Rebecca Quigley says:

    Love the new coach. However, Alex Smith SUCKS! How many more years are we gonna have to put up with the agony of watching him! Loyal fans deserve better!

  45. mike says:

    I hope this will get to Jed York’s desk. This team is worst than last year, and if Jed doesn’t spend some $ now to bring a few good players, the seats in the stadium will be empty this season. Here are what i suggest:
    1. Get rid of coach Harbaugh (hire NFL coaches!), and A. Smith (long overdue)
    2. Improve the offensive line (hire good rookies), as well as good receivers
    3. Get rid of current offensive coach (terrible game plans)
    4. Teach players SPEED, specially on offense (defense too). This is 2011 speed not 90s!

  46. Jim says:

    The whole Alex Smith situation is basically like someone paying WAY too much for a new pair of shiney shoes only to find out they are two sizes too small, are the wrong style and wrong function but since they cannot take the shoes back…Damn it I am going to still wear these shoes even if they kill me!!

    6 years of having Alex Smith as the “QB” is like wearing dress shoes to a football game. Enough is enough! Get rid of these shoes and get some real cleats!

  47. NinersSuck says:

    Thanks cbs, I have to watch the horrible 49ers instead of big brother. What kind of ratings does a pre season 49ers game get? Probably not as good as a reality show thats on its 13th season. The niners are a joke and will never be good with Alex Smith as their QB. How many more years of developement does he need.?
