Niners hit practice field early



The 49ers are already on the practice field. They're going through their walk-through right now. Because they play a 10 a.m. game (PT) Sunday in New Orleans (noon, CT), the club will enact their early practice schedule.

Coach Mike Nolan has already met with the media today. Here's what's going on:

--There are quite a few players who are not scheduled to practice today. The list includes RB Frank Gore (coaches decision), CB Walt Harris (coaches decision), WR Bryant Johnson (hamstring), S Keith Lewis (knee) and S Michael Lewis (elbow).

Also, T Jonas Jennings (shoulder) and CB Shawntae Spencer (knee) are out for this week's game. Spencer is undergoing season-ending surgery on a torn ACL. The 49ers are in no hurry to replace him on the roster because they have good enough depth in the secondary and anyone they add would not be active for Sunday's game, anyway.

S Dashon Goldson (shoulder) and CB Donald Strickland (knee) are scheduled for limited practice today.

--Second-year player Tarell Brown will continue to be called up. When asked if he'd become the No. 3 corner, Nolan said it would depend on the game plan.

--As noted in the "all-53-man review," David Baas got into the action for a couple possessions at LG in the second quarter of Sunday's win over the Lions. The 49ers have gotten starting LG Adam Snyder some work at tackle just in case he's needed. Right now, Snyder is the team's backup at both tackle spots, while also holding down a starting role at guard.

--When rookie Chilo Rachal practices, he lines up at guard (not tackle). Rachal was active for Sunday's game, suiting up for the first time in his career. He did not play.

--The 49ers could face some noise issues at the Superdome. To compensate for the crowd noise in Seattle, the 49ers went to a silent count. They accomplished this with C Eric Heitmann putting his head down. When he picked it back up, he snapped the ball. The 49ers always snapped the ball on one "head bob."

"It might need to be on 2 and 3 head-bobs," Nolan said playfully when a media member suggested it might have become a little too predictable against the Seahawks. (It should be noted, on Monday night, the Jets did the same kind of silent count. However, about every third or fourth snap, they went with multiple head-bobs as the snap count.)

--The 49ers will always identifiy where RB Reggie Bush lines up, Nolan said. He'll be in the, backfield and at wideout. All three teams the Saints have played thus far have used "entirely different defenses," Nolan said. The 49ers figure to mix it up, but there are certain to be times when a cornerback is responsible for Bush. (That's my thought, not Nolan's.)

Spencer and Brown: a contrast in c*ckiness


The 49ers' new No. 3 cornerback is nothing like their previous No. 3 cornerback. Whereas Shawntae Spencer is tall and lanky, Tarell Brown is three inches shorter and more muscular.

But that's a minor discrepancy compared to their dispositions. Everyone whose been covering the team for a while remembers an exchange with a gloomy Spencer that came after a summer practice his rookie year. After the practice, Dennis Erickson had high praise for the rookie. Spencer, however, had a different take. "I don't know what everybody else is watching," he said while giving a self-deprecating a.ssessment that made him sound a lot like Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh. "I mean, I'm making way too many mistakes. I'm going through those growing pains just like everyone else. It's a long, tough process to make this jump from college to pro ball." If you had been there that day you would have sworn that Spencer was on the verge of being cut. In other words, he was decidely un-cornerback-like, dwelling on mistakes and sounding like a worry wart.

Brown, meanwhile, sounds exactly like a cornerback - aggressive, intense and confident, bordering on c*cky. "My confidence has always been high. Always. I never really lost confidence. I've always trusted in my ability and always had confidence. The thing is just waiting your turn and seizing the moment." Brown also admitted he is playing with a bit of a chip on his shoulder. A couple of brushes with the law prior when he was at Texas damaged his draft status, and he lasted until the fifth round when the 49ers picked him. "Oh yeah," he said when asked whether he still thinks about that. "Definitely. I've got that in the back of my mind all the time."

****************
When Ahmad Brooks first arrived in Santa Clara, the 49ers had him practicing exclusively behind Patrick Willis at "Mike" linebacker. Now he's practicing exclusively at "Ted." This is just me thinking aloud (on-line) but it doesn't seem as if the 49ers are particularly enamored of either Takeo Spikes or Jeff Ulbrich, who have been rotating at "Ted" throughout games. After all, as Mike Nolan is so fond of saying, "you don't have two starters, you have two back-ups." And I wonder if we'll see them start working Brooks -- younger, bigger, more athletic -- into the rotation at some point this season.

*****************
Safety Keith Lewis said today that he actually hyper-extended his knee in the Seattle game and then aggrevated it while covering a kickoff against Detroit. Neither he nor Michael Lewis practiced today, a concern for the 49ers considering Keith Lewis is Michael Lewis' backup. If neither played Sunday, the 49ers would turn to Dashon Goldson, who was limited in practice with a shoulder sprain. Said Keith Lewis: "I can't make any promises but I should be good to go. Hopefully, hopefully."

Hitting on points of interest with Morgan, Davis


Rookie receiver Josh Morgan caught nine passes for 182 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' first two exhibition games. He was held without a reception in the third game. And then he disappeared.

Morgan missed most of a week of practice. He did not play in the final exhibition game. And the only information coach Mike Nolan revealed was "undisclosed illness." Of course, that opened the door for all kinds of wild speculation.

Although the staff at Instant 49ers did not speculate publicly on the reason for Morgan's absence, you can probably figure some of the possibly "undisclosed" illnesses that were being considered.

Now, here it is . . . a month after the fact . . . and Morgan confirms he missed time due to a staph infection.

Fox's Brian Billick, former Ravens coach, reported during Sunday's broadcast that Morgan lost 15 pounds due to an illness. The announcers take part in a production meeting with the teams' coaches the day before the game.

Here's an excerpt from my chat today with Morgan, who just happens to be a very likeable and amiable young man:

Q: Brian Billick, on TV, said you lost 15 pounds . . .

Morgan: "I don't know how that got out."

Q: Is that true?

Morgan: "Yes, sir. How did that get out? That wasn't supposed to get out."

Q: Did that set back your development?

Morgan: "It kind of did. It's in God's plan. Everything's in God's plan I looked at it as a minor setback for a major comeback. But I'm feeling a lot like myself again. Last week was the first time I was feeling like myself again. In God's time, it'll be there for me."

Q: Did you have a staph infection?

Morgan: "Yes, sir."

Q: Do you know when you got the infection?

Morgan: "Everybody said it was from the first game, the Oakland game.

Q: Is that because of the infield dirt?

Morgan: "Yes, sir."

Q: What did it do to you?

Morgan: "Pretty much, it eats away at your skin. If you don't get it early, it could do a lot of damage to you."

Q: Did you have it on your knees or elbows?

Morgan: "I had it a couple of different places."

* * *

Tight end Vernon Davis and quarterback J.T. O'Sullivan remained after practice today for about 10 minutes. Davis was seen running routes down the field for O'Sullivan. Here's what Davis had to say about it:

Q: Did you ask J.T. to work with you after practice?

Davis: "Yes. He said, 'Sure.' We talked about the game and we're saying it was almost there. He said, 'I know, I know.' We just got to get the chemistry.

Q: What happened on those deep passes in Sunday's game?

Davis: "They were seam routes. The first one was underthrown. The other one he over-threw me a little bit and my fingertips barely hit it. I slowed down, thinking that pass was going to be like the first one he threw - the first one that was underthrown. We had a problem connecting. If I would've kept running fast like the first one, we would've been on the same page."

Q: Are you frustrated that those plays did not happen?

Davis: "Oh, yeah, I'm frustrated. Heck, yeah, because we work on it in practice. We're just getting around each other. It's still early in the season. We still got time."

Q: Did you hear some boos after you didn't catch that one deep ball?

Davis: "No, I didn't hear anything."

Q: Considering the expectations you came here with, do you think you're on pace to be where you want to be?

Davis: "I do everything I have to do and more. I go beyond. I practice how I play. I do it in practice and then I do it in the game. I just can't go out there and make those passes come to me. We got to connect. We got to be on the same page. People can say what they want to say. As long as I know and the coaches know -- when we get in that meeting room they're giving me credit and telling me the good things I did -- I'm cool with that."

Q: That deep pass seems to be a big of the team's offense?

Davis: "You'll see me go deep every game. Mike Martz has always stressed that nobody can run with me. You see it in the game. Like the guy (Lions safety Dwight Smith) holding me. They can't run with me. That's why he has me going deep like that."

Q: How did things go out there with you and J.T.?

Davis: "We know it's critical we get on the same page. He knows how I'm going to run. I've talked to him and told me, 'J.T., this is how I'm going to run it in a game.' I told him, 'Just put it up there and let me do the rest.' I'm feeling good now. As long as we are on the same page, that's all that matters. This is our first time really talking about that since he's been here - talking about being on the same page."

Tarell Brown is eventually gonna be the starting cb of the best secondary in the league...Nate Clements, Dashon Goldson, Michael Lewis, Tarell Brown in 2009 = best secondary in the league...I believe in him as a number 1 or 2 cb in the near future

as far as Vernon Davis...it time to stop running your mouth and making excuses...he dropped those passes plain and simple...im hoping that he not just a combine freak and can become an elite tight end

Gore, Harris return to practice after rest day


INJURY UPDATE: RB Frank Gore and CB Walt Harris returned to practice today after sitting out Wednesday due to "coaches' decision." S Michael Lewis (elbow) is going through limited work today. Everybody else on the injury report is unchanged from yesterday.

WR Bryant Johnson (hamstring) and S Keith Lewis (knee) did not practice, and S Dashon Goldson (shoulder) and CB Donald Strickland are both limited.

The 49ers are not ruling out any of those players from participating in Sunday's game against the Saints. (CB Shawntae Spencer is out for the year after undergoing ACL surgery yesterday, and T Jonas Jennings is out for this week's game with a shoulder injury.)

Niners set to retire Young's No. 8 against Pats


The 49ers will officially retired quarterback Steve Young's No. 8 jersey when the club plays against the Patriots on Oct. 5.

Young will become the 11th player in team history to receive this prestigious accolade.

"Steve Young is an important part of the 49ers history and tradition," owner John York said in a statement. "He combined talent, character and a tremendous work ethic to become an incomparable performer and champion on the field. He was a model professional, and he influenced many of the younger players with his dedication. Our players today and for years to come will look up to Steve. We are excited to pay tribute to his achievements with this special halftime ceremony in front of our fans."

Past 49ers to have their jersey retired are:

No. 12 John Brodie (1973)

No. 16 Joe Montana (2000)

No. 34 Joe Perry (1971)

No. 37 Jimmy Johnson (1994)

No. 39 Hugh McElhenny (1971)

No. 42 Ronnie Lott (2003)

No. 70 Charlie Krueger (1974)

No. 73 Leo Nomellini (1971)

No. 79 Bob St. Clair (2001)

No. 87 Dwight Clark (1988)

* * *

Young was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2005. The 49ers have also unofficially retired Jerry Rice's No. 80 jersey for games. Rice will probably be honored with a retired jersey some time after he's inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Martz: Things are real close with JTO, Vernon



Vernon Davis and J.T. O'Sullivan remained on the field after practice again today. Davis ran deep routes, and O'Sullivan uncorked some deep throws to him. Offensive coordinator Mike Martz said they'll "keep hammering" away at getting Davis down the field. Here's the transcript from an interview with Martz:

Q: Vernon Davis and J.T. O'Sullivan are out there working with each other again after today's practice. How important is it for those two guys to get on the same page?

MARTZ: "That position is even different than the wide receiver position because you get covered by so many different guys. So the timing of those things and getting a feel for his body language when he's coming out of routes is really, really important. They have to have a real good sense of how they're going to react with all those defenses. It's much more complicated."

Q: How do you feel about how Vernon's doing?

MARTZ: "Good. He's done a real good job. We missed him on a couple throws in the past week. Those things are real close. You just keep hammering away at those things and eventually you'll make them. He's doing a good job in practice. For a guy that big and strong to catch the ball going full speed 40 yards down the field is not easy. It's not like a wide receiver. Normally, their (tight ends) stuff is always inside. So he's done a good job of keeping his speed and winning on those routes. We just have to connect."

Q: Are those the type of routes that benefit the offense even if they don't result in completions?

MARTZ: "It scares them, sure. That one route he took off on - a nine route or a go-route - that was a corner that was covering him. He ran right by that corner and then he backed off his speed a little bit and he was still pulling away from him. When you look at tape on those types of things and you're a defensive guy, that gets your attention, I'm sure."

Q: Is there a thought that his strength could be something that hinders him in the passing game?

MARTZ: "No. Not at all. There's nothing wrong with him in the passing game. We just got to hook up with him."

Q: If Bryant Johnson can't go, do you feel good about where Josh Morgan is?

MARTZ: "I haven't thought about it. I'm sure B.J. will be able to go. I feel good about either one of them."

Q: It seems like there are a lot of guys on this offense capable of making plays. How do you dial stuff up to spread that ball around?

MARTZ: "I think each week you have things in (the game plan) for everybody. They know that. They know they'll have an opportunity to make a play. I think it's a morale booster and it's good for us because defensively they have to cover everybody. And anybody's able to make a play at this point. The other thing that's good about that is usually you turn into a pretty good team when you can do that. When you have to isolate one or two players to make plays, that's usually not good. When you have a number of players capable of making plays, that's a good thing. And it helps you win."

Q: Do you find defensive coordinators isolating on any one or two particular guys?

MARTZ: "No."

Q: Not even Frank (Gore)?

MARTZ: "I think Seattle did initially. They were trying to shut Frank down in the running game, so you just move to a different area. That's why Isaac had such a big day. As long as everybody's capable of making plays, it's easy to shift gears and go in a different direction and continue to move the ball. When you can't do that, it makes it very difficult. It's hard."

Q: How did the idea come about that you wanted to use Allen Rossum on offense?

MARTZ: "When I saw him in the preseason return that kick for a touchdown. I just thought, if he's going to be on our roster as a specialist, we could sure use him, potentially on offense with his open-field abilities. He was very excited about doing it. So that gives you another playmaker, even if it's a couple, three times a game. That puts stress on the defense, and that's what you're trying to do."

Q: Do you not have that smaller, quick receiver with the 49ers that you've had in the past with other teams?

MARTZ: "The quick part of it, I think our guys are quick enough. I don't think that's an issue at all. Unusual speed - I think Josh (Morgan) has that unusual speed. I think B.J. I just never thought a lot about it. It just kind of happened because that's what we had. We never tried to get those kinds of guys. Those are the kinds of guys who were just productive. And nobody else really wanted them. And so we grabbed them, and used them."

Q: Working here and being around where Bill Walsh worked, do you take inspiration from that?

MARTZ: "To some extent, there's no question, we all do. I think more importantly as it relates to the whole organization, I think you see some of the former players around here every week. I think that's a real inspiration. So it's a very indirect effect from Bill, but I think everything -- the way the organization is put together and the way they do business with class, integrity. Again, having former players around and say, 'Hi.' That's one of the neat things about being here."

Nolan: Morgan's old staph infection is 'hearsay information'



Coach Mike Nolan was asked whether Josh Morgan has his weight back up after his staph infection.

Nolan's response: "That was written and I don't even know if it's accurate to be honest with you. That's all speculation with weight loss and this and that. That's hearsay information. It didn't come from (trainer Jeff Ferguson) did it?"

No, it came from Josh Morgan, who confirmed it was a staph infection that caused a 15-pound weight loss.

* * *
I don't see the 49ers notebook I wrote on the Web, so here's what was supposed to be in today's paper:

SANTA CLARA -- Now that rookie receiver Josh Morgan is regaining his weight, he expects to start carrying more of it.

Morgan was one of the stars of 49ers training camp when he filled in admirably with starting split end Bryant Johnson injured. Morgan caught five passes for 114 yards in an exhibition game against the Green Bay Packers.

Then, Morgan disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Morgan missed a week of practices and did not play in the exhibition finale Aug. 29 against the San Diego Chargers.

Coach Mike Nolan's only explanation for Morgan's absence was "undisclosed illness."

Morgan returned for the regular-season opener as the 49ers' No. 4 receiver, and has caught just two passes for 26 yards in the first three games.

Finally, the 49ers supplied Fox broadcaster and former Baltimore Ravens coach Brian Billick with some information last weekend. Billick reported Morgan lost 15 pounds due to the "illness" in the preseason.

Morgan said he was surprised that word got out about his weight loss. On Wednesday, he confirmed the ailment was a staph infection. He said he likely got the infection from abrasions sustained on the infield dirt at the Oakland Coliseum during the 49ers' first exhibition game of the summer.

"It pretty much eats away at your skin," Morgan said. "If you don't get it early, it could do a lot of damage to you. I had it in a couple of different places."

Morgan was on antibiotics. His weight dropped to 202 pounds after reporting to training camp at 218. When he weighed himself Wednesday morning, he said he gained a couple pounds and is now up to 208.

When asked if it set back his development, Morgan answered, "It kind of did. It's in God's plan. I looked at it as a minor setback for a major comeback.

"I'm feeling a lot like myself again. Last week was the first time I was feeling like myself again. In God's time, it'll be there for me."

Morgan might have more of a chance to show what he can do Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Johnson missed practice with a mild aggravation of the hamstring strain that kept him out of the first three exhibition games.

* * *

Receiver Bryant Johnson has missed two days of practices with a right hamstring strain. It's the same hamstring that kept him out of three exhibition games. The 49ers seem to believe he'll be available to play Sunday against the Saints. Nolan said, however, that Johnson, S Dashon Goldson, S Michael Lewis, S Keith Lewis and CB Donald Strickland will be game-time decisions.

Steve Young: Number retired is a 'tremendous honor'



Steve Young, whose No. 8 jersey will be retired during a ceremony at halftime of the 49ers-Patriots game on Oct. 5, took some minutes out of his busy day to speak with the media.

--Young said 49ers owner John York talked to him about a year ago about retiring No. 8. They spoke again this summer. They tried to find the right day. Young, of course, has his Monday night responsibilities on ESPN. And his wife is due in mid-November with the couple's fourth child. That's why they settled on Oct. 5.

--Young said having his number retired was a "tremendous honor." He spoke to one of his friend today, just moments after it was announced. His friend told him, "This could be by far the greatest honor." Young said his friend helped him put it in context with some of his other accolades.

Said Young, "This is your team. This is not the league. . . . I think it's more intimate that some of the other things."

--Former 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo is expected to attend the event. Young said his family will be coming to town for the ceremony, and he hopes many of his former teammates will be able to attend, too.

--Young was asked about Jerry Rice's No. 80. "It's a function of how long it's been since you retired," Young said. He added that he does not think you have to worry about anyone wearing No. 80 with the 49ers again.

--Young also said it's nice to have these accolades spread out over time. Young was elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2005. Now, his oldest child, Braden, is seven and he can appreciate something like this.

Young, speaking on a cell phone, turned to his son and explained his number was going to be retired. At first, Braden said it was no big deal. But a few moments later, Braden came around. "That's cool," he said.

--Braden said he wants his dad to play again. But now the 49ers might not need Young as much as they have in the past several years.

Young said he's following J.T. O'Sullivan and thinks it's a "great story." He said what JTO has done already is remarkable.

"There's something to be said about getting through that first level to the point people have confidence in you," Young said.

Keena Turner called Young and said him to meet O'Sullivan. Young said he's spoken with O'Sullivan on the phone. He intends to speak at length with him, as early as the next day or two.

--As for No. 8, Young said there's really no story how it became his number. He said he always wore No. 14 in baseball, basketball and football. Once, however, in junior high, he was handed No. 8 by the coach who distributed numbers.

When he got to BYU, No. 14 was already taken by Kevin Walker - "I can't believe I remember that," Young said. He took No. 8 because he already had worn it once.

He said if No. 8 had been taken somewhere along the line with the L.A. Express, Buccaneers or 49ers, he would've gladly taken No. 14 again.

"I never thought about it after a while," Young said. "After college, I was eight for life."

Serving notice on NFL
49ers are brimming with confidence after beating Lions





(09-24) 22:25 PDT SANTA CLARA --

Frank Gore was on a roll. He and his teammates are together, focused, "as one." He said they love offensive coordinator Mike Martz and believe in themselves as never before. And then he got a little extra burst, just as he does on the field.

"If we get everybody clicking," he said, "we can be the best offense in the league."

It sounded like hyperbole, perhaps something he'd wish later that he hadn't said out loud. But no, he stuck by it. After all, why shouldn't a running back believe that his offense can be No. 1, especially when that running back is the ultimate true believer?

Other players are more cautious than Gore, but no less confident. The 31-13 win over Detroit backed up their belief that this team is very different from the one that won only 16 games in three years under Mike Nolan, that seemed locked in a constant stutter-step. Sean Payton, the Saints' coach, dialed into 49ers' headquarters for a conference call Wednesday and summed things up pretty well.

"The one thing that you see as a team when you watch them on tape," he said, "much different than I think the last two years, is a team that's playing with confidence."

To a certain extent, Payton has to talk that way, convincing himself and his players not to underestimate their next opponent. But he was entirely correct. And Gore wasn't all that far off-base himself.

The 49ers are 11th in total yardage after ranking last a year ago, almost 40 yards a game behind the next closest team. They have amassed 1,206 yards in three games this season. Last year, they needed five games to reach 1,016.

It's no wonder that the 2-1 record of last year feels so unlike the 2-1 mark of this season.

"The games we won last year, it wasn't like this," Gore said.

When the 49ers won their first two games of 2007, they outscored their opponents by a total of just four points. In both games, the losing team had more yardage than the Niners. The Rams, the second opponent, had more than twice as much.

"I think right now, we have some games that we really feel like we definitely deserved and earned those wins - more than the ones last year," cornerback Walt Harris said.

Their win over the Lions was a rarity in the Nolan administration. Every now and then, to believe in itself, a team has to show that it can thoroughly put an opponent away.

It helped to have the Lions turn up on the schedule when they did. The misguided franchise treated the loss to the Niners as a low point in a seven-year valley, firing team president Matt Millen three days after the defeat. Does anyone think they would have dumped him this week if the Giants, Packers or Cowboys had been on the sweet side of that 31-13 score?

As a potential contender, the 49ers haven't exactly arrived. But they have tentatively RSVP'ed. The results over the next four weeks, when they meet formidable opposition from the Saints, Patriots, Eagles and Giants, will be their answer. After that, they get heavy doses of the singularly unimpressive NFC West, and two showdowns with the pitiful Rams.

To put the questionable win over the Lions into perspective, one of the two early victories last year came against St. Louis, which fought Miami for space in the league's cellar.

"I would say that this offense has a swagger about it," center Eric Heitmann said. "And that's something we haven't had in the past."

A lot of that appears to emanate from J.T. O'Sullivan, Martz's chosen quarterback. Nobody can really explain why such a nomadic player could walk into the 49ers' huddle and act so completely at home. If nothing else, he didn't look around the group and see usual suspects, guys who had dropped his passes before, missed blocks and generally played tentative offense together for far too long.

Did rotating from team to team for so many years, usually as the last quarterback on the roster, help O'Sullivan cultivate a commanding presence? After all, he had to learn how to lead a new group of strangers every season and get their attention quickly, in whatever snaps he could grab with the starter.

"I don't necessarily agree with that. It's just more that I try to be myself," he said. "... I don't know that I've ever watched somebody else in the huddle and thought, 'Gosh, I'm going to try to do it like that.' The one thing that I've learned is that people will respect you if you are yourself. So I try to be myself."

Confidence couldn't find a better definition.
Upcoming games

Before the 49ers get too carried away, they should consider their next four games are at New Orleans, against New England and Philadelphia at home, then at the New York Giants.

Closer look at 49ers-Saints key matchups


This is not a GPS game, per se, but you can certainly look at this four-week stretch that begins Sunday as an indicator of where the 49ers stand in the NFL.

The 49ers' next four games are against the Saints, Patriots, Eagles and Giants.

If they go winless, that's not good. If they can win one of four, they're still in the ballgame as a potential contender in the NFC West. If they win two of these games, well, it could get very interesting.

There are no longer any "Win the West" banners hanging outside the team's locker room. Coach Mike Nolan has fallen in line with the rest of the sporting universe with his one-game-at-a-time mantra. Keeping that in mind, let's not get too far ahead of ourselves.

Here is a closer look at some key matchups in tomorrow's game:

* * *

49ers defense (everyone) vs. Saints RB Reggie Bush: When Bush ran through the 49ers two seasons ago at the Superdome, the 49ers were unable to match his speed. It looked like the 49ers' linebackers that day were running in quicksand. Now, the 49ers have Willis at linebacker. Of course, he will not always be responsible for covering Bush out of the backfield, but he (and his speed) must play a major role in containing the former Heisman Trophy winner. Everyone has to get involved in putting the clamps on Bush, from the defensive line to the cornerbacks and safeties. When Bush is split out wide, he becomes as much of a threat to Nate Clements and Walt Harris as any receiver they'll match up against today.

DE/OLB Justin Smith vs. LT Jammal Brown: Smith lines up all over the place, but he's generally on the right side (the offense's left) on base downs. Brown is one of the best tackles in the league. (When I re-did the 2005 draft last year, I determined - using the gift of hindsight - that the 49ers should have selected him with the No. 1 overall pick.) Smith has been better than advertised. "Cowboy" rarely comes off the field. Even when he does not get credit for a sack or tackle, it seems he did something on the play to cause some disruption for the offense.

DT Justin Smith vs. LG Carl Nicks: This guy, Smith, looks an awful lot like that other Justin Smith - the one who lines up at DE and OLB and is mentioned above. This Smith moves inside to DT on pass-rush situations. Staring guard Jamar Nesbit is out of action because of a league-imposed suspension for violating the policy on anabolic steroids and related substances. That means Carl Nicks gets his first NFL start. Nicks (6-foot-5, 343 pounds) will try to get his hands on Smith and maul him, while Smith will try to use his quickness and moves to get around the rookie.

DE Parys Haralson vs. RT Jon Stinchcomb: Throughout last season, Niners GM Scot McCloughan kept saying that Haralson was very close to breaking through as a pass-rusher. It never quite clicked for him in Year 2, but it now looks as if he has arrived. Haralson comes into the game in passing situations. He lines on the left side. That means he'll be matched against Stinchcomb, who has been beaten for one sack in the first three games. Haralson leads the 49ers with three sacks.

RT Barry Sims vs. DE Charles Grant: Sims makes his second start after Jonas Jennings went down with a shoulder injury. This is a big test for Sims, who has been plagued by penalties in recent season. Grant, for some reason, is not nearly the pass-rush threat as he was a few years ago after back-to-back 10-plus sack seasons. His numbers have declined steadily since 2005. He does have one sack in the first three games, though.

WR Isaac Bruce vs. CB Mike McKenzie: Bruce was held without a catch in the opener; he caught 153 yards in passes in Game 2; and then he was held to two receptions for 19 yards last week. Which Bruce will show up in the Superdome? At least the 49ers have enough offensive weapons (can you believe I just wrote that?) so J.T. O'Sullivan can spread the ball around a little. McKenzie is a 10-year pro who has put together some big games against the 49ers in the past - whether with the Packers or the Saints.

Offensive coordinator Mike Martz vs. defensive coordinator Gary Gibbs: Martz has shown a new wrinkle in each of the 49ers' first three games. So, let's see, that would seem to suggest that he'll break out something different in this game, too. Gibbs was a candidate for the Cowboys' head-coaching job in 2007 and interviewed with owner Jerry Jones. However, his stock is falling. The Saints own the No. 28-ranked defense in the league. Look for them to try to get some hits on O'Sullivan using much the same game plan as the Seahawks did up there. That also could open the door for the 49ers to convert some big plays down the field.

Niners offensive snap count vs. Saints home crowd/defense: Things got mighty predictable when the 49ers tried to counter the noise problems at Seattle's Qwest Field with a silent count. Center Eric Heitmann looked down and when he raised his head back up, he snapped the ball. The 49ers did the same thing every play after making that adjustment at halftime. This time, coach Mike Nolan said they'll mix it up a little. But the 49ers can't afford to get too fancy and out-fool themselves. How they deal with the noise will be a factor in the game.

Belly up in the Big Easy


Had a late flight out of New Orleans, which allowed me A.) to have an oyster po'boy at Mother's before leaving for the airport and B.) to peruse the local papers. It's clear that the story of the day here was Deuce McAllister's triumphant return to the game plan. The main headline on the front page of the Times-Picayune today is: DEUCE's HIGH with a photo of McAllister crashing over safety Mark Roman (which is poetic itself) for a touchdown. The headline on the sports page screams DEUUUUUUUCE! On the front page, Times-Picayune columnist Jeff Duncan writes that McAllister was able to pound the "soft gut" of the 49ers' defense.

Soft gut. The 49ers' defense shouldn't have a soft gut. Over the years, they've rejected the tall, 275-pound pass-rushing defensive end for squat 315-pound fire hydrants, the type of player who should excel at stopping the run. They have the best tackler in the league in middle linebacker Patrick Willis. They have big, physical players in the secondary. They have a defensive-minded head coach who has tried to build a tough, blue-collar-style defense. The 49ers' gut shouldn't be soft; it should be a team strength.

But Duncan is right. The 49ers are soft where it counts. Edgerrin James ran against them in Week One, Julius Jones in Week Two. Detroit's Rudi Johnson found success last week and McAllister pushed them around yesterday. No doubt Laurence Maroney and the Patriots offense will look to get back on track against the 49ers on Sunday.

Part of the problem is scheme. The 49ers use their nickel or "Big Sub" defense quite a bit, reasoning that it's good at guarding against big offensive plays. That's what Mike Nolan fears the most - "explosives" by the opposing offense. But offensive coordinators have countered by running between the tackles, as the Saints and McAllister did Sunday.

The Big Sub also seems to rob the 49ers of their pass rush. Heading into the season, a lot of ink was spilled on how versatile free-agent pick up Justin Smith was going to be. Offenses weren't going to be able to isolate him like they did when he was a Cincinnati Bengal because in addition to defensive end, he would play linebacker, defensive tackle and would move around just before the ball was snapped. In "Big Sub," however, Smith mostly is limited to playing end. (He does shift inside on obvious passing plays). Is it any coincidence that the 49ers have had one sack in the games in which they've primarily played Big Sub and have had seven in the other two? You can have 16 defensive backs playing against Drew Brees. But if you give him time to throw, he's going to find an open receiver.

The other part of the equation is personnel. Nolan has said that the "Big Sub" ought to be just as good at stopping the run as the base defense. After all, the "Big Sub" features four defensive linemen. But those big, 315 pounders the 49ers have a.ssembled over the years are getting pushed around too easily. The objective is for Aubrayo Franklin, Isaac Sopoaga and mates to hold their ground and gum up the line of scrimmage so that Willis and others can swoop in and make the tackles. The problem is that the line too often loses ground. Willis made a lot of tackles against the Saints. But when McAllister was in, it was five and six yards downfield.

The Saints are widely considered to have a finesse team, and the 49ers countered with a finesse defense. And the bottom line is that they were pushed around.

Nolan's press conference transcript


Q: When you look back at some of the big plays that you seemed unable to unleash, was there a consistent theme to them?

Nolan: "The passes you're speaking of. Yeah, I think it was just mental errors, whether it be technique or obviously every defense has weaknesses, but they're always underneath. They're never vertical and so basically that's it - mental errors. Keeping the receivers in front of you."

Q: Is this offense too much of a high-risk offense, puts too many people out in pass patterns? Or were you confident that your offensive schemes were good enough to make sure to hold off that pass rush?

Nolan: "The offense is designed to use several different protections. I will say this: Sean Payton, one of the things he's done with his offense is try to make it very much like Mike Martz's in that he uses a lot of protections as well. I know Sean personally and he, in the past, has even said that's something that he tries to picture his offense about - the change of protections where you get players out. It's evident that New Orleans does the same thing. And at that point, obviously what it gets down to is doing your job. Protecting, and doing the right techniques and everybody being on the same page as far as the responsibilities go. Because everybody's got to be accounted for. Obviously, the running backs, as well as the offensive line, wide receivers, everybody has something to do with it. The quarterback has something to do with it. So it's not always on one position. I do believe that our offensive line can play better. But I also believe that as a total offense, more importantly, can do a better job as far as that goes. We turned the ball over a couple of times, which in our two losses has been a little bit of our m.o. But the beauty of the offense is it does put a lot of stress on a defense. As is evident, again, of the New Orleans Saints' offense. Our offense is very similar. Now they've been doing theirs longer than our guys have been doing ours, but at the same time you can see very often, as we've seen in the first month of football, that our offense has the ability to be pretty explosive. So in some cases you do take the good with the bad, but it's all philosophical as far as what you want to do. Do you want to just protect and stand in there a long time or do you want to get the ball out of there? As you noticed J.T. [O'Sullivan] throws a lot of balls very quickly as well to those slant routes and things like that that we get a lot of yardage out of. He could change the protection and sit in there for a very long time if he'd like and try to get one of the other routes. Or he could take advantage of what the defense is doing. Me being a defensive coach - they both create different problems. So it's just a matter of philosophical-what you want."

Q: When you had that confrontation with Vernon Davis, can you talk a little bit about what that was?

Nolan: "I have not spoken with Vernon since yesterday and I'd look for him to-"

Q: Did you talk to him on the sideline?

Nolan: "I did not talk to him on the sideline with the game going on. He's very emotional. He was excited at the time. I really don't know what transpired at the time, but he was right there in front of me and was really excited about whatever was going on so I pulled him aside. Because any player that's in that kind of mode, I don't think is best to stay on the field. At that time, I just called him off. Obviously I grabbed him. I said, 'Look, sit down. Sit down and calm down.' I turned my attention back to the game because we were on the field. But I have not had words with him since. But I will."

Q: Do you plan to?

Nolan: "Oh yeah. But I haven't gotten-I just want to see what-To be honest with you, I don't understand why he was so excited at the time. He just caught the ball. He had gotten up. I don't know if it was a play prior to that one, but I just know that he had a lot of emotion going on. He is an emotional player. I know that Pete Hoener has always spoken with him. Mike Martz spoke with him on the sideline. Like I said, it was more emotion than anything else."

Q: Did he get back in the game?

Nolan: "Yeah, he got back in the game. He did, but he didn't do anything. At the time I pulled him, it was about emotion, it wasn't about, he had said something or done something. Why I grabbed him, he was emotional."

Q: Do you sense a growing level of frustration with him?

Nolan: "I don't know if I'd call it frustration. He's a very emotional player. When he gets the ball, obviously every time he gets up, whether it's the first quarter or the fourth quarter, he's very excited and shows himself, but when you are losing I think anybody gets frustrated. When the game is like it was, I don't care what position you play. It was a little bit of frustration because you want to have leverage in a game. We didn't have leverage."

Q: How was his blocking, Vernon's blocking?

Nolan: "His pass protection was good. His run blocking a couple times, they slipped him. So is the case."

Q: Did you have to keep him in at some point because of the protection problems

Nolan: "Like I said, we mix up our protections quite a bit. So whether it's a six man protection or seven man protection without getting real technical with that, he's stays in on some of those and some of those he's out. It's just a matter of mixing up protections for the play. If you have a play-action pass, a lot of times you don't have a lot of receivers out on a play-action pass. Again, it's just a matter of mixing."

Q: So you're not contemplating any changes?

Nolan: "We've talked about some different things, but kind of what you said, we're kind of limited in what you can."

Q: Is Chilo [Rachal], for instance ready to step in?

Nolan: "Not today, but he's getting better and these last couple of games where he's been active for the game. He's gotten additional work in practice because of that, but at this point to put him in there because he's been a guard more for us than he is a tackle, so we're not in a spot to make any moves inside or outside because right now we've been pretty solid inside. Again there aren't a lot of options."

^^^ Continued

Q: How much did [Kentwan] Balmer play?

Nolan: "I didn't bring the numbers down here with me, but Kentwan is getting better, he's doing a good job. When we talk about him, it's been positive. He also does a nice job in the special teams area. He does a couple things for us there in field goal protection as well as kickoff return he does well, but on defense he's doing a good job. We do not hesitate to put him in the game."

Q: Do you think he is going to get more action?

Nolan: "I think as he goes along, sure. I'm going to guess he had a dozen, 16, maybe 20, maybe."

Q: The secondary had a tough time and I guess certainly that is related to the amount of time that Drew Brees had to throw. It just seemed like there were some plays, their receivers were a little bit more aggressive in getting to the ball. Do you see it that way? How did you a.ssess your secondary's performance?

Nolan: "Well, you can call it what you want when you lose."

Q: Well, we are trying to kind of-

Nolan: "I know. The vertical passes are the ones that got us in trouble. They were, but if you don't see the big plays, then obviously you keep the ball in front of you and we played a pretty solid game in the secondary. But, the explosive plays that occurred, they did occur and they are inexcusable. You want to find out why they happened and like I told you, there are some mental lapses, mental errors. It wasn't like somebody got whipped on an all out blitz. Two weeks ago against Denver, Denver all out blitzed and [Robert] Meachem had a 70-yard gain down to the 5-yard line I think, but they have an all-out, zero, everybody's got their own guy, no matter what, no help at all. For ours, we didn't have that much time on those deep balls so there was a guy deep as well as the player itself should have stayed on top of the receiver. That's not just physical, as much as it is mental, keeping yourself out of harm's way so to speak. That's where those big ones get attention. Anything underneath, they are going to complete some balls underneath, obviously they are a good team. I thought we did some outstanding things defensively in the game as far as [Reggie] Bush goes, all those things. I'm even embarrassed to go to the positives. But, again it's about winning and losing so again, you ignore the positives sometimes when you lose the game. We need to address the things we did poorly, get them corrected and make sure we change the problem and still do the things we did well, well."

Q: In the third quarter, you challenged a reception by the Saints. Why did you challenge it?

Nolan: "You know what, I took my time on that too, that challenge, because I wanted to slow the game down. Obviously, it was a challenge that was, the significance of it wasn't a great deal. But, at the time I was thinking about burning a time out just to slow things down. So I just used a challenge instead. At the same time I looked, I thought he bobbled it, and when I looked up at the screen I saw that he didn't have complete control when he went to the ground, so I thought I might get it back. But to me, more than anything, I just wanted to slow things down. If you have the opportunity, because I've frequently have seen in the first few weeks, even on third down, I've called a timeout maybe once a game, and it's played to our advantage thus far this season. Where I think, 'Look it, I just want to get this situation just right so we can get off the field.' If there's a preceding play that gives me an opportunity just to challenge, because I don't lose anything, I'm going to lose a timeout either way. Something like that did it. But, otherwise, like I said, it was to gain time as much as anything. Just maybe I could win it and keep another challenge."

Q: Do you know how many times you've done that? Thrown a flag partly to slow the game down?

Nolan: "I think I did it against the Denver Broncos when we won two years ago - three years ago? Two years ago. It was the one where Walt Harris picked the ball up, and it wasn't on any of the film, and there was a fumble. They didn't rule a fumble. They kept looking at the film longer, and longer, and longer and next thing you know there was an angle that showed Walt picked the ball up, so they gave us the ball. It wasn't even a turnover. I mean, nobody had even thought the ball had been fumbled. As a matter of fact, they made a rule because of that, that if everyone stops playing, and they used that play as an example. If everyone stops playing, then they won't call it a fumble either. They'll just call it dead play. So that, that kind of caused them."

Q: If Manny Lawson can't play, who would play in his spot?

Nolan: "Parys Haralson is who backs him up. So, more than likely, it will be Parys. With the ability, possibly, to pull Tully [Banta-Cain] up. We'll see how it goes. It will not only affect the defense, but it will affect the special teams. So, right now that would be the likely move."

Q: There were times where J.T. O'Sullivan held on to the ball too long and he didn't sense the blind-side rush. What are the things he needs to do, specifically, at this point to overcome those things?

Nolan: "Well, I think it's clear to see when he plays, he moves the ball. You can see he's in command of what he's doing. He's very coachable. He takes what Mike [Martz], Ted [Tollner] and even myself, which I don't say that much about what he should do [on] certain things, to heart, and he listens very clearly. He tries to do it exactly like it's supposed to be done. I think he just needs to continue experience each game as it comes. As a football team, we have to secure the ball. He had a few turnovers in the game with the fumble that he got on the sack and then the other two [interceptions]. But, he does a lot of real good things. For us to be in that game and not be playing all that well like we were at the end there, right before we threw that interception at the goal line on the 10-yard-line, which would have made it 17-21. You know, we're right there knocking at the door. He just needs to continue playing. I've been encouraged by what he does. He encourages - when he's on the field, he does some things that give, I think, give everyone from the players to the fans and the coaches alike, gives us that feeling that we have a chance to score."

Q: Any line-up changes coming this week?

Nolan: "No, because we continue to mix everyone in. Now, somebody may appear like they're playing more because of the personnel usage and maybe we have more snaps, but every game goes that way. Like I said, Isaac Bruce catches no balls in the first one, catches them in the second game. Game plans have things that do that and who the defense takes away."

Q: I'm thinking more in the secondary. Will Dashon Goldson play more this week?

Nolan: "We'll have the same thing there. That's an experienced group. It was not - you know, what occurred at the beginning with the big plays was not a good thing. That has not been a recurring theme in the secondary, what happened."

And you gotta like how Nolan is saying hes not gonna change anything...a good solution til Jennings come back would of been put Bass at LG and move Snyder to RT and bench Simms...or at least give Chilo a shot...only Heitman is playing good & and Staley is decent...


I dont think I'll be going to any game this year, yeah I know doesnt look good on fanhood credibility ...but Im saving money, yall know how sh*t is these days with money ...might go to the Jets game though...
