Rams lead latest Thursday Night snoozefest

More and more people are coming to the conclusion that Thursday Night Football is missing a couple of words in the title.  Like “not.”  And “very.”  And “good.”

The latest short-week snoozefest comes from the 49ers and Rams.  The home team leads after one quarter, 3-0.

49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick continues to look ordinary, completing two of five passes for 11 yards.  As NFL Network’s Mike Mayock pointed out, Kaepernick didn’t see a wide-open receiver that was his second read, instead getting sacked by Rams defensive lineman Robert Quinn.

Kaepernick also has no rushing attempts.

Phil Dawson missed a 53-yard field goal on San Francisco’s first drive.  Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein shtoinked a 40-yard try off the goal post for a three-pointer.

The Niners can still turn it around.  Especially if coach Jim Harbaugh’s halftime speech consists of reading aloud any mean Twitter messages directed to Kaepernick.
