49ers, Rams head to overtime, again

When last they met, the Rams and 49ers played five full quarters — minus the minute or so that the officials erroneously allowed to run off the clock.

This time, they’re going into extra time, again.

A 53-yard field goal from rookie Greg Zuerlein forced the tie as time expired, knotting the game at 13 and sending the game back to overtime.

Presumably, every player for both teams now knows that if no one scores in the next 15 minutes, the game will end in a tie.

    Real tired of announcers only talking about one player, capernoseic….

    Which begs the question: If Smith couldn’t beat them the first time, and Kaepernick comes up short today, then does Harbaugh go with his 3rd string quarterback to finish out the season?

    So much for the hot hand…

    Akers needs to be cut. He can’t kick past 35 yards anymore

    Gee, good thing Smith wasn’t our QB, we might have won it! LOL

    Alex was out after the first quarter of that game. Sure he gets credited for the start but that tie wasn’t his fault. Anyways, the hot streak is over for Kaep and Alex needs to start again. Use Kaep for trick plays and let him develop more, his time will come one day.

    For the safety call, the line of scrimmage extends out of bounds, and he did get it back there, so it was a bad call. Still shouldn’t have put himself in that position, though. Also risky call on that pitchout, and CK ran out of bounds when he should have stayed in. Hopefully he will have enough time to limit these inexperience mistakes before the playoffs start.

    I want to know what the nfl has against the rams that roughing the passer penalty was obsurd. We had to win with the refs against us again!

    Kaepernick scored 8 points for the Rams today.

    Start Alex Smith!

    jnova80 – You said “Alex was out after the first quarter of that game. Sure he gets credited for the start but that tie wasn’t his fault.”

    Does that mean Kaepernick gets credited with both both the tie then and the loss today?

    I’m beginning to think Harbaugh was looking at Kaepernick like a penny stock that spiked on a rumor so he bought of ton of it. As it cooled off he bought more thinking he was getting it at a bargain. And as it stayed flat, he discovered he was too far in to unload it. Now he’s just crossing his fingers and hoping.

    There’s a lot to be said about going with numbers over one’s gut. Even if Harbaugh was right, I can’t imagine he didn’t damage the psyche of his team.

    I’m beginning to dislike Harbaugh. He is playing with fire when he didn’t need to.
