“You have a lead like that at home, there’s no way you should lose that game,” John Madden told the KCBS radio morning crew. “Turnovers and penalties will probably do it every time. When you have that lead at home and you have a pretty good defense and a pretty good running game, you have to be able to control that game.”
Jay Cutler passed for three fourth-quarter touchdowns after much of Chicago’s starting defense went down, and the Bears beat the San Francisco 49ers 28-20 Sunday night to spoil their Levi’s Stadium debut.
The San Francisco 49ers won their first game of the 2014 season, but they didn’t generate enough offense consistently on their own. Gifted four turnovers by the Dallas Cowboys, the 49ers didn’t score at all in the second half of the game. They’ll need to make sure they create their own opportunities in Week Two against the Chicago Bears at the Levi’s Stadium opener.
The 49er defense shined in San Francisco’s 28-17 victory over the Cowboys in Dallas Sunday. But John Madden says don’t forget about the offense.
All the problems that seemed to be facing the 49ers were worked out on the field. The offense looked fine, the defense stepped up and the result was a road win, that was far from a lock. f the 49ers can continue to improve, they will be back in the thick of things at the end of the season.
Colin Kaepernick looked ready to lead the San Francisco 49ers to another NFC championship game. Tony Romo looked rusty for the Dallas Cowboys.
The 49ers open their season against the Cowboys in Dallas Sunday. John Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew he expects San Francisco to win, but is concerned they’ll be giving up more points this season.
The 49ers and Cowboys meet in Week 1, and the winner will be the team whose defense steps up. While the 49ers defense is top tier, they will be without some key players and going against an elite offense.

For the second straight year, Colin Kaepernick is the coverboy of the Sports Illustrated NFL preview edition published on the West Coast, but unlike last year, the 2014 spread – with rival quarterback Russell Wilson – is turning as many heads as the swimsuit issue.
