A Tale of Two Halves: What Is Going On With the Niners?

The 49ers have been two different teams this season, a dominant force in the first half and a complete mess in the second. Is it time to panic?


The San Francisco 49ers are a mess. During Jim Harbaugh’s first three seasons as Niners head coach, his team was 22-0 with a lead of more than seven points at halftime. They’ve now blown such leads in consecutive weeks, having given up a 10-point lead to the Bears in Week 2 before allowing the Cardinals to come back from an eight-point deficit Sunday. The disappointing losses have inspired open revolt from a team that already seemed volatile heading into the season, with Frank Gore openly grumbling about his lack of touches in the second half last week. A topsy-turvy offseason has left the Niners with a lumpy, limited roster, and talents missing via injuries (NaVorro Bowman) or suspensions (Aldon Smith) have exposed major problems. Is it time to panic at Levi’s?

Well, let’s figure out what’s happening to the 49ers after they come back out for the second half before putting their overall performance into historical context. Through the first three weeks of the season, the 49ers have scored 59 points in the first half, more than anybody else in football. In the second half, the Niners have scored — and this is not a typo — three points. As you might expect, that’s far worse than anybody else in the NFL.

First to worst is pretty brutal, but how does that manifest itself in terms of San Francisco’s style of play and output on a per-play basis?

If you want to pass around the blame for San Francisco’s second-half offensive collapse, more has to go to the rushing offense than the passing attack. This was once the most fearsome rushing attack in football, led by a dominant offensive line. You knew what they were going to do and couldn’t stop them. Now, for a variety of reasons, the 49ers simply haven’t been able to run when they’ve needed to kill clock and move the game along. That was obvious against Arizona last week, when San Francisco’s running backs carried the ball 10 times and gained just 24 yards. Gore finished the game with six carries for 10 yards, which tells you why he didn’t get the football in the second half, especially given that Colin Kaepernick was 25-of-26 for 219 yards on throws to his big three wideouts, Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin, and Stevie Johnson.

The decline in the run game, matched with a notable increase in sack rate during the second half, suggests that the offensive line has been a significant portion of San Francisco’s struggles in the final two quarters this year. Some of those sacks are coming from a scrambling, desperate Kaepernick, but the line hasn’t looked great on film this year, either.

That’s mostly come from the right side. Right guard Alex Boone held out all offseason before returning to the team just before camp, and after sitting out for virtually all of the Week 1 win over Dallas, he has been inconsistent during the two-game losing streak. Boone had an ugly whiff in a key moment against Arizona strong safety Tony Jefferson last week, with the twisting Jefferson taking down Kaepernick for a sack that ended San Francisco’s last possession while within seven points in the fourth quarter. Backup right tackle Jonathan Martin, who has filled in for an injured Anthony Davis, was a mess against the Bears.

Left guard Mike Iupati and new center Daniel Kilgore haven’t distinguished themselves, either. The 49ers haven’t gotten much of a push from the line, and that’s a killer for a patient back like Gore, who lacks the top-end speed and acceleration to blow past guys with a cut to the outside. No back in football is better at letting his blocks develop before bursting through the hole than Gore, but the blocks haven’t been anywhere near as reliable in 2014.

The problems haven’t been quite as pronounced on defense, but they’ve still been extremely noticeable. Through three weeks, the 49ers have allowed the league’s third-fewest points (16) during the first half, only to give up the fifth-most points (52) during the final two quarters. Are they experiencing the same style issues that the offense is struggling with?

Not at all. They’re certainly worse on third downs, but teams have been so effective against them on first and second down that third down hasn’t really come up. The Bears, to pick one team, faced only one third down against San Francisco all second half. The rushing defense has actually hunkered down, but the passing defense has totally fallen apart. Basically, once the halftime whistle blows, the San Francisco pass defense has turned opposing quarterbacks from Blaine Gabbert into Aaron Rodgers. That’s the wrong way to live.

At the center of those problems is defensive back Jimmie Ward. It was very surprising to see the 49ers draft Ward with the 30th pick of the first round this spring given what they had done with their personnel earlier in the offseason. The 49ers had lost four key contributors to their secondary, including their starting strong safety (Donte Whitner) and their three top cornerbacks (Carlos Rogers, Tarell Brown, and the retired Eric Wright). Their only signed replacement was former Colts starter Antoine Bethea, who seemed likely to form up with 2013 first-round pick Eric Reid to give the 49ers a strong core at safety. Despite a draft rich in cornerbacks, the 49ers didn’t choose one, instead opting for … another safety.

The 49ers ended up bringing in Ward to play hybrid nickel corner in much the same way that Tyrann Mathieu did for Arizona last year. While the likes of Chris Culliver and Chris Cook have been bad this year, Ward has been the worst member of the 49ers secondary. The television broadcast Sunday credited him with three touchdowns against during the first two weeks, which is bad, and it only got worse. Ward was in coverage on a touchdown pass up the seam to speedy rookie wideout John Brown. It appeared after the catch that there were miscommunication concerns, but given that Ward was the closest player at hand and trailed Brown from the moment the ball was snapped, it seems fair to say he had a lot to do with the coverage on the play. With no pass rush to hide those mistakes, Ward’s been punished for his naïveté this year.

Much of the Arizona game plan from last week was simply targeting Ward and those overmatched cornerbacks. Bruce Arians’s offense is designed around getting the ball downfield for big plays, but Drew Stanton seemed to be tossing bombs on each and every passing play. Against the 49ers, the average Stanton pass attempt (per ESPN Stats & Information) traveled 14.9 yards in the air, a downright staggering figure. Nobody else came close to producing passes that long this week, and it has been a long time since anybody topped him. The last time a quarterback averaged that many yards in the air per pass was in Week 6 of the 2012 season, when Russell Wilson averaged 15.2 air yards per pass attempt in Seattle’s 24-23 victory over New England.

Stanton turned the game around when he started hitting on some of those downfield throws. On passes the NFL defines to be “deep” throws (those that travel 15 yards or more downfield in the air), Stanton went just 1-of-6 for 36 yards in the first half. During the second half, Stanton and his receivers lit up the 49ers. He completed four of his seven deep passes for a total of 114 yards and two touchdowns, with two additional attempts yielding a roughing the passer penalty and a 21-yard defensive pass interference call. Hard to argue with those results.



So, is it time to freak out about the 49ers? Is there something sinister lurking in their second-half performances that Harbaugh isn’t going to be able to correct? My suspicion is that things will work out just fine, and I think I have a good reason why. Blowing second-half leads is bad, but to get a second-half lead, you have to outplay teams during the first half. And if the 49ers are outplaying teams during the first half, chances are they’re playing better football than their record might indicate. (It also might be worth noting that the opponents they’ve played are a combined 5-1 in their games against non-49ers opposition this year.)

I was curious, so I went back through 1990 and tried to find teams that were similar to the 49ers to see if second-half collapses were a regular problem. During this three-game stretch, the 49ers have had a point differential between halves of minus-92.

That’s saying the 49ers outscored the Cowboys by 25 points in the first half, but were outscored by the Cowboys by 14 points during the second half, with the difference between those two figures representing a 39-point swing. Factor in those figures for all three games and you get a 92-point swing from their first-half point differential to their second-half point differential.

That’s an enormous gap. It’s the fourth-largest differential over any three-game stretch for a team since 1990, a list topped by the 2011 Vikings, which blew halftime leads of 17-7, 17-0, and 20-0 during their first three games of the season and posted a 105-point swing from half to half. Those losses promptly agitated the local media and fan base into calling for Donovan McNabb’s head after a perfectly competent start to the season, and by Week 6, McNabb was out for Christian Ponder, who played worse and got better results. (Probably because he had the It Factor.) They didn’t make the playoffs, but the only other team with a 100-plus-point swing from half to half were the 2007 Chargers, who were the third-best team in a stacked AFC that year and made the AFC Championship Game.

More notably, the second-half woes don’t seem to stick. I went and found the 30 worst three-week stretches in terms of that half-to-half point differential since 1990, a group in which the average team performed 78.3 points worse in the second half than it did in the first half. If those teams were consistently blowing first-half leads, we would expect to see them maintain some level of poor play in the second half over the other 13 games in their schedule. And that’s just absolutely not the case. In the remainder of those schedules, those teams were actually narrowly better (plus-0.4 points) in the second half than they were in the first half.

In other words, there’s little reason to think the 49ers will continue to blow first-half leads. I say that with some trepidation knowing they’re playing the Eagles this week, who have basically been the inverse of the 49ers; they’ve been outscored by 27 points in the first half and produced massive comebacks while outpacing the opposition by 50 points after halftime, a 77-point swing in the opposite direction from San Francisco.

More realistically, the 49ers don’t have the ability to concentrate their successes or failures in any one half. They’re not using up their money plays in the first quarter or running out of gas in the third. Their overall performance is far more important than what they’ve done split by half, and the bigger picture points to a team with notable strengths (the passing game, rush defense) and weaknesses (pass defense, running the football), regardless of how they’re split by time.

Given how successful the 49ers have been over the past few seasons and how well they’re coached, it would be a surprise if things didn’t get better. Boone should play better as he gets back into game shape. Both Anthony Davis and Vernon Davis are on their way back, with the latter likely to suit up in Week 4. Ward will make fewer mistakes (or play fewer snaps). Let’s remember that San Francisco was also 1-2 last year, having suffered blowout losses by 20-plus points in back-to-back games at Seattle and at home against Indianapolis. The 49ers promptly righted the ship, won their next five games, and finished 12-4. Repeating that many wins might be tough, given that there are still two games against Seattle to go and matchups against Denver, Philadelphia, and New Orleans. But it’s too early to panic. The 49ers should be fine.

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?  CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?  INSTEAD OF DISCUSSING YESTERDAY'S MUST-WIN EPIC VICTORY OVER THE GROUNDED PHILLY BIRDS ( YEP, CHIP KELLY'S SOARING EAGLE ATTACK SCORED ZERO POINTS)..

..WE ARE FORCED TO REACT TO VAPID SHIT-STIRRERS IN THE NATIONAL MEDIA LIKE DEION "NEON DEION" SANDERS AND TRENT "DISGRUNTLED" DILFER AND THEIR "REPORTS" THAT THE 49ER PLAYERS WANT COACH HARBAUGH "OUT" .... COACH HARBAUGH SAYS "UNNAMED SOURCES" ARE FOR WUSSIES AND THAT SUCH REPORTS ARE "A LOAD OF CRAP"


LET US HEAR WHAT OFFENSIVE GUARD ALEX "THE RHINO" BOONE HAD TO SAY, VIA 95.7 THE GAME FM


“So what’s the problem? I’m confused. Is winning not good? Is business not a’booming right now, boys? Here’s my problem with all of this: If you’re not in our locker room, then keep the 49ers name out of your mouth,” Boone said. “Let’s just do that, because you have no idea what goes on in our locker room.

“If they just named a name – ‘He said this’ -- now you got a story. But everyone’s saying, ‘The suits upstairs’ or ‘Somebody in the locker room.’ Well, who are the suits and who are the guys? Because last I checked, I was in the locker room yesterday and it was all smiles and everybody was happy and nobody was saying, ‘We want him out.’”

Boone provided a report of his own, stating that the locker room is universally in Harbaugh’s corner.

“As a matter of fact, I know for a fact that everybody loves Harbaugh,” Boone said. “He’s a great guy. He’s a great coach. How could you not want to win for a guy who wears cleats during a game? Come on, now. Have you ever seen that guy’s energy? He’s excited 24/7. You got to love to play for a guy like that. That’s what football’s all about.

“And for people to come out and say, ‘Oh, so-and-so told me they want him on the outs,’ all right, name your source. Go ahead. `I can’t do that.’ Well, that doesn’t make sense to me. I don’t know. Apparently, I don’t live in reality.”



ALEX BOONE IS NOT JUST NICKNAMED "RHINO" ... ALEX BOONE ALSO HELPS ENDANGERED RHINOS  SURVIVE AND THRIVE.

Ward is coming right out of college to be a converted nickel back covering the tricky slot receiver - I imagine just about all in a similar circumstance would need a period of adjustment.  Yeah, in his second NFL game, Jimmie Ward got beat badly by Chi-town's Brandon Marhsall in the red zone, but Brandon is one of the biggest and best receivers in the league.

Tho your spiel about the Arizona game is just wrong.  On the touchdown you speak of, Ward was supposed to undercut the route and get help up top from safety Eric Reid.  Reid blew his assignment, and when reporters were throwing Jimmie under the school bus, Eric came forward and owned up to his mistake and backed Jimmie as coming along nicely.  Hmm, re: "unnamed sources" - that team spirit doesn't exactly smack of a "toxic" locker room, as Dithering Dilfer termed it.

Oh jeez, so many thoughts racing throughout my mind now, I'll will try to corral them.

The truth probably falls somewhere between the Deion Sanders and Alex Boone statements.

It is incorrect, as Sanders stated on the NFL Network after the 49ers rallied to beat the previously unbeaten Philadelphia Eagles, that the team universally wants Harbaugh out as head coach.

And it’s equally implausible that “everybody” loves the 49ers head coach.



There have always been rumblings of scattered player dissatisfaction since Harbaugh’s arrival. One of the constant themes was that he was grinding them too hard with three-hour practices in training camp and not letting up much once the season began.

On Monday, Harbaugh said he meets regularly with veterans to gauge the temperature in the locker room. And Harbaugh walks through the locker room to touch base with his players more than any coach I’ve investigated.

Harbaugh said he has an open-door policy, and no players have come to talk to him about growing discontent. That’s why he labeled Sanders’ wide-sweeping statement of dissension as “crap.”



Harbaugh describes his players as “mighty men.” If a true “mighty man” is not happy, he would enter the open door to talk to his coach rather than going through the back door as an unnamed source.

Harbaugh said on Monday that nobody has come to him to air any complaints.

It’s no secret Harbaugh is a difficult personality. But the guy can coach. He took a team that had not made the playoffs for eight consecutive seasons and led it to the NFC Championship game in each of his three seasons.

But his future with the 49ers beyond this season is very much in question.



CEO Jed York and Harbaugh did not work out a contract extension after the Super Bowl before the 2013 season. Again, in the offseason months, the sides could not come together on a deal that would take him past the 2015 season.

Just a week into training camp, York and Harbaugh agreed on one thing -- to postpone contract talks until after the current season. That tells you everything you need to know about the importance of Harbaugh’s fourth season as coach.

Coaches do not need to be universally liked by the players. Several prominent 49ers often clashed with Bill Walsh. So the players should have no voice in whether Harbaugh remains as head coach after this season.



The only thing that matters, as it pertains to Harbaugh’s future with the team, is how York and general manager Trent Baalke feel about him. The only time successful coaches are dismissed is when somebody in an upstairs office has an issue.

If the team plays hard and plays well, it does not matter if the head coach has a 100-percent approval rating. His job is to keep everybody in the locker room pulling in the same direction. Perhaps, the "unnamed sources" are giving Harbaugh an assist.

“When it comes to a football team,” Harbaugh said Tuesday on KNBR, “if there’s people that want to divide, divide, divide on the outside, then our response is, ‘Unite, unite, unite.’ That’s the way our team has always gone about it.”

There was in another topic area some discussion of THE CATCH II ( The first THE CATCH was 1982, Montana to Dwight Clark against shitty Dallas)

so here is THE CATCH II - lefty Steve Young to Terrell "T.O." Owens, at the end of this famed drive ( women will appreciate, because it is serial rapist Darren Sharper's defense that gets humiliated w/ brutal defeat)

In a true contest, I think we all know that the Vikings could defeat any team, as is attested to by the exploits of Bjarni Bjarnason back in the days when the Council met at the Þingvellir.

The Þingvellir, for those who might not know, is where the Viking teams assembled for the Althing, where all disputes are settled in accordance with the rules. Good sportsmanship is required from all the competing teams, or else they will be shunned, and be sent away to settle Greenland:



It was time for the Spring Assembly at Althing. Thorstein arrived the day before with a large contingent of his men. Others, friends and farmers who lived near Thorstein arrived with him. They all set up their booths.

Thorstein had his men set up a very large booth and covered it with canvas. No one used this large booth.

The next day Steiner arrived with many men. At the head of this force was Tongue-Odd. Steiner and his supporters set up their booths.

Both sides were heavily armed.

Steiner walked around bragging about how he was going to win the case and have Thorstein outlawed.

Thorstein, being cheiftan, had the responsibility to see that the process of law was duly followed. He reminded those in charge of hearing the case what the rules were.

Thrand was sound asleep with his boots and worrysome broadaxe laying beside him.
Thorstein only carried a small axe with a short handle.

He poked Thrand with the butt end of the handle. Thrand awoke with a start and reached for his axe.

“What do you want?” Thrand asked.

Thorstein told him he wanted Steiner’s cattle off of his property and never to return.
Thrand made several insulting remarks and told Thorstein to be ready to die.

As he was putting his boots on Thorstein took one mighty axe swipe at Thrand’s neck.

His head was mostly off and laying on his chest.

Thorstein covered him with rocks and returned home.

Oh gaud, oh cheesebus, I am too emoji right now to talk much about the departure of Frank "The Bell-Cow" Gore ( to the Indy Colts) and team leader Patrick "Too Great to Have a Nickname" Willis ( he has retired at age 30 because his feet hurt, and also Jesus has a new plan for him, he has quoted Proverbs and a haiku).

So, let us look to the future.  Free agency has started with a bang, and the Niners have made a splash signing Baltimore receiver Torrey Smith for 5 years, 40 millions dollars, 20 million dollars guaranteed.  Torrey is a genuine speedster.  And you know what this acquisition means : ADIOS MICHAEL CRABTREE.

So let us meet and greet Torrey.



Smith was born on January 26, 1989 and grew up with his mother Monica Jenkins in Colonial Beach, Virginia and Fredericksburg, Virginia. The oldest of seven children, Smith helped his single mother, who attended Rappahannock Community College in the day and worked at night, with household chores and earned honor roll grades in school. Smith attended Colonial Beach Elementary School, where his physical education teacher, Coach Swope, recognized his athletic ability and allowed Smith to attend his camps free of charge. Smith noted, "Coach Swope knew me before I knew myself ... Every kid who's athletic in that town goes through Coach Swope." Smith went on to Stafford Senior High School, where he played basketball as a guard, and football at several different positions. He enjoys fishing as a pastime.
