Below is a transcript of Mike Florio’s chat in Sunday Night Football
Extra for Week 5’s Eagles-49ers game. You can access his live chat
every week here: nbcsports.com/snfextra
PFTonSNF: Kolb’s pass not really any worse than Alex Smith on his interception. Maclin just helped him out. Ted Ginn didn’t.
AskSNF: Do you think the 49ers can finish 8-8 this season?
PFTonSNF: That means they need to go 8-4 the rest of the way so … no.
PFTonSNF: Cole (hamstring) questionable to return. Brodrick Bunkley out. Jason Peters likely out rest of game. Ugly for PHI.
PFTonSNF: Yikes. Frank Gore’s fumbling problems are back. That’s four this season.
AskSNF: Should Singletary be fired?
PFTonSNF: He didn’t fumble that ball. Give him the year.
AskSNF: Is this year’s NFC West the worst division of all time?
PFTonSNF: There have been some ugly NFC Wests this decade but this is the worst. 9-7 wins easy. maybe 7-9.
AskSNF: Does John Fox get a head coaching job next year?
PFTonSNF: No doubt. He’s thought of very highly.
AskSNF: 2º Fumble do Frank Gore no #SNF. Excelente pro Fantasy, já que meu adversário tem ele no time. #NFL
PFTonSNF: I just said that myself.
PFTonSNF: That’s two long Akers kicks they’ve passed on.
AskSNF: #SNF shows the clip of the Faith Hill parody from last night’s #SNL. Nice. #JaneLynch #Glee #NFL
PFTonSNF: Here’s a link to it. Funny stuff. http://bit.ly/dmXPI9
PFTonSNF: Funny. The guy hasn’t lost his job. Yet.
AskSNF: Who is the worst quarterback in the league right now?
PFTonSNF: Jimmy Clausen. That Panthers game has no chance. Todd Collins doesn’t count because he’s a backup.
AskSNF: Can the Bears hold on and win the nfc north? And if they do what does it mean for Lovie’s job.
PFTonSNF: It’s a legitimate three-team race now. Chicago defense consistently good, but don’t think they can hold up all year.
AskSNF: are the bills gonna win a game this year
PFTonSNF: It’s hard to lose 16 games. Reason its only happened once. They host Lions, Browns later. Bound to win one.
AskSNF: How many mistakes do the 49ers have to make before they switch O-coordinators again?
PFTonSNF: You really think that will help?
AskSNF: What’s the status of Aaron Rodgers with the Packers for next week? Is his concussion going to keep him out of the game?
PFTonSNF: He’ll have to past tests during the week.
PFTonSNF: DeSean Jackson on the sideline. Eagles just need to get out of this game alive.
PFTonSNF: Had the distance. Like the decision to go for it. Two scores in this game is huge. Last punt was lame.
AskSNF: i heard mark clayton from rams got injured. how bad?
PFTonSNF: He’s out for the season. Tough break for a guy off to the best start of his career. Rams won’t go for Devin Thomas.
AskSNF: Ball slipped from his tiny hands #SNF
PFTonSNF: Yikes. Played a solid game until that moment. What a terrible, terrible play.
AskSNF: Ask Mike Florio 49ers going to draft a QB in the upcoming draft?
PFTonSNF: Yes, but they should have last draft.
AskSNF: Who is the backup quarterback for san francisco?
PFTonSNF: David Carr. Not an option.
PFTonSNF: The boo birds are out in full force. Why do I feel so bad for Alex Smith?
PFTonSNF: “We want Carr” chants erupt. Sadly, that’s the memory to take from this game.
PFTonSNF: That and Kevin Kolb’s sweet touchdown pass in the first half.
PFTonSNF: David Carr warming up. Could this be the end of Alex Smith in San Francisco? Thing is: He’s still the best 49ers QB.
PFTonSNF: 49ers defense — very poor in the first half. Has kept alive here.
AskSNF: IF Alex wasn’t a first round draft pick would he have been cut a long time ago?
PFTonSNF: Probably he wouldn’t be there yeah. Smith may have talked his way back in the game. We’ll see.
PFTonSNF: It’s like when John Fox took Matt Moore out. It got worse with Jimmy Clausen. Carr would be worse.
PFTonSNF: Smith will stay at QB. Carr looked like he was coming on field and Smith replaced him.
PFTonSNF: Rough night for Frank Gore.
AskSNF: This game is intense! Niner fans are ready to riot. #SNF
PFTonSNF: Hard not to root for Alex Smith now. At least makes it interesting!
AskSNF: Said before, say again: #SNF web player is sweet. I would pay to watch my team this way, #NFL. Or I can pirate it. You’re move.
PFTonSNF: Thanks man.
AskSNF: If Kevin Kolb starts next game and does well do you think Andy Reid will put him starting over Vick?
PFTonSNF: I don’t think Kolb has a chance no.
AskSNF: Lost in all the Alex Smith discussion is the fact that the O line for the 49ers is a big, undisciplined mess…
PFTonSNF: Lot of undisciplined messes, agreed.
PFTonSNF: Gutsy drive! That’s why you don’t every doubt Alex Smith!!
PFTonSNF: Right by his ear hole!
AskSNF: Do you agree the Niners don’t have a win because they don’t seem to be able to make in-game adjustments to counter their opponents?
PFTonSNF: Hard to say, but they don’t look like a well coached team in general.
PFTonSNF: 124 total yards for McCoy with a broken rib. What an effort.
AskSNF: How likely is it that the Rams will go after vincent jackson?
PFTonSNF: Very unlikely.
AskSNF: Do you think the NFC East will have a front runner this year or will they all stay bunched up as usual?
PFTonSNF: Bunched up all year for sure. All 4 teams could do it.
AskSNF: Singletary already unbuckled his belt, those pants are gonna drop any minute now
PFTonSNF: It’s the only move he has left.
AskSNF: Mike why can McCoy go but not Vick?
PFTonSNF: Vick broke 3 ribs and different severity of fracture.
PFTonSNF: Smith responds with two touchdown drives after the “We want Carr” chants.
AskSNF: Wow. Alex Smith the comeback kid. Definitely shows guts. #SNF
PFTonSNF: Alex Smith’s numbers tonight: 23-of-34 for 285 yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT, fumble.
PFTonSNF: I think McCoy thought he had the first down and game was over. Great move to get there.
AskSNF: Why did McCoy go down? He just kept hope alive for the 49ers. #Dumb #SNF
PFTonSNF: A shame because he’s had an amazing game. That was game over.
PFTonSNF: 49ers fans are no longer chanting “We want Carr.”
AskSNF: Once again… Great #SNF game
PFTonSNF: not always pretty, but very entertaining.
PFTonSNF: Ouch. Offensive line failed the 49ers at the end, not Smith.
PFTonSNF: Mike Singletary post-game presser could be ugly. This team finds new excruciating ways to lose every week.
AskSNF: Good game tonight. Great to see Alex Smith persevere. Too bad it wasn’t enough. #SNF
PFTonSNF: Story of the night. thanks for watching everyone.
