Carlos Hyde scores two touchdowns as 49ers shutout Rams 28-0 on Monday night

AP

Week 1 of the 2016 NFL season came to a close with a massive thud.

The San Francisco 49ers cruised to a 28-0 victory over the Los Angeles Rams in a game that featured inept quarterback play, 17 punts, three turnovers, a fan on the field and Aaron Donald being ejected for contacting an official and shoving receiver Quinton Patton in the face.

Carlos Hyde rushed for 88 yards and two touchdowns, Shaun Draughn scored on a 3-yard run and Vance McDonald caught an 8-yard touchdown pass from Blaine Gabbert as the 49ers outclassed a Rams team that couldn’t accomplish much of anything all night.

Case Keenum passed for just 130 yards on 17 of 35 passing and was intercepted twice. Todd Gurley couldn’t find any room to run either, gaining just 47 yards on 17 carries. Los Angeles posted just 185 yards of total offense and had only four drives finish in 49ers territory.

The Rams possession summary for the night: punt, punt, punt, interception, punt, punt, punt, punt, punt, punt, interception, punt, turnover on downs, end of game. They finished the game just 3 of 15 on third down.

And it’s not as though the 49ers looked the part of a juggernaut either.

Top overall draft pick Jared Goff wasn’t even in uniform Monday night. He was declared inactive before the game in favor of Sean Mannion as Keenum’s backup.

At this rate, Jeff Fisher won’t have to worry about his team going 7-9 again. The way they looked Monday night, they won’t get anywhere close to that number.

  1. This may have been the most painful NFL game I have ever seen! It was so painful, I switched channels to watch reruns of Hannah Montana on Freeform TV! (I was desperate for something refreshing.)

    If Jared Goff can’t beat out Case Keenum, God help us all! The Rams defense must be pissed! Their offense did absolutely nothing to help win.

    Keenum can’t throw beyond 8 yards and their WRs can’t catch a cold! Wow!

    While I’m not a Rams fan, living here in So Cal I’m trying desperately to pull for them. Tonight’s game didn’t add any new fans for sure!

    And how Jeff Fisher still has a job as a career 7-9 coach is one of history’s mysteries!

  2. Poor Jeff Fisher … embarrassed again. Hasn’t produced a winning team since 2008. Why does this loser still have a HC job in the NFL ? The Rams may have turned in the most pitiful performance of any NFL team this century. Way to go Jeff !

  3. After a full offseason of the NFL jamming the brand new LA Rams down our throats, we get that awful product on the field. That looks like a 2 win team at best

    And how bad must Jared Goff be if he can’t beat out Case Keenum. What a display.

  4. Clearly the worst coached team in football in all three phases of the game, except for punting that gets extra practice on the field during games.
    How Jeff Fisher remains employed is beyond confounding and an insult to great coaches in all ranks of the game.

  5. Our defense is awesome. Our front seven will dominate teams all season, hopefully the offense learns to pick up the slack. Considering the outcome I should be more grateful but I tempered my expectations all offseason and now the defense has the potential to mold this team as we rebuild.

  6. God knows what Fisher thinks he’s doing on offense. Try throwing the ball 15 yards down the field. I promise you, there were no 49ers there.

    It’s the 21st century man. Get with it.

    PS Goff can’t possibly be any worse than Keenum.

  7. HOLY cow the lambs are pathetic that made the niners look like a playoff team. As a niner fan im hopefull, but im going to wait until week 5 to make my thoughts about this niner team.

  8. Coming from a real HAWKS fan glad y’all
    Won i want our rivaly back y’all did good respect✊ can’t wait till we can bash each other again lol see y’all in a few weeks of course we taking it haha GO HAWKS!!!

  9. Guess what record the Rams had against Seattle in 2015?
    2-0

    Guess which city’s fans are trying to say they have an elite team?
    The Seattle 2013s, who are even more of a bandwagon set than the 2012s

  10. Rams are horrible. There worst than last year. 10 punts 431 yard is ridiculous. Tavon Austin is getting paid 10 mil a year to average 8 yards a catch. They are suffering from a bad draft. Wide receiver in first would’ve helped this historically bad receiving corp. And a linebacker in second round to help out this very short handed position and Donald. Sorry Goff made had you ben throwing to Witten, Ertz, Matthews, Williams or Bryant. Waddup Dez. Pick any three rams receivers not named Kenny Brit and add there totals together from last year. Now compare to any of those I just named last year stats. They have thre receivers putting up one receiver numbers. 0 just 0 first week against 49ers. 4-12 season hopeful.

  11. Look the niners fans are back on this message board. Too bad they aren’t at the stadium. I unfortunately have to be in Santa Clara for work parts of the year and go to the games. They had a huge 49ers faithful banner spread across the seats near the end zone at kick off. I was trying not to laugh while I saw all the empty seats all around the stadium. Mainly because I know what happens to opposing fans at that stadium so I try and keep my chuckles to myself. Can’t wait for week 3. Why don’t you beat the panthers for us too and then we’ll bring you back to earth the next week.

  12. braceyourselffor12 says: “Considering the outcome I should be more grateful but I tempered my expectations all offseason and now the defense has the potential to mold this team as WE REBUILD.”

    You can’t be serious! This team, the worst in the history of the NFL, has been REBUILDING since 2003. Last year, their offense was among the worst in the NFL on third down. They have the EXACT SAME personnel starting on offense this year as they did last year. No d-mn changes.

    Their “vaunted” defense is a shambles. Blaine freaking Gabbert beats them. Their secondary is swiss cheese. Aaron Donald gets tossed out of the game displaying the same immaturity and lack of control the Rams were noted for the past 10 years. They’re coached by a perennial loser who once lost in the SB and has lived on that for 16 years.

    The LA Coliseum may have a decent crowd for the Lambs first home game but, after that, the crowds will look like it’s 1994 all over again. The Rams define inept and just because they moved doesn’t change that fact.

  13. There’s only 32 NFL coaching jobs in the world, how is Jeff Fischer worthy of one? In a good year the guy is mediocre at best.

  14. A bad team blows out a horrible team. What a dreadful game. There were many years in the 2000’s that the 4 worst teams in the entire nfl were all in the NFC west. In fact, during a couple of those years the division “winning” team couldn’t even manage a winning record. It looks like it’s moving in that direction again if it’s not already there.

  15. Eventually the Rams will figure out that giving gadget/special teams player Tavon Austin 10 mill/yr was a bad idea. Almost as bad as keeping Fisher around.

  16. Even the Browns looked better. I think by the end of the year, Fisher will be wishing for ‘that 7-9 BS’, because they’ll probably wind up 4-12 at best. The Rams looked terrible and completely unprepared at every single position (except maybe punter). Fisher needs to be fired at long last. A total disgrace.

  17. That offensive line for the Rams is god awful. I’m glad I didn’t use a high draft pick on Gurley.

    Also, weren’t we here last year when the Niners destroyed the Vikings on MNF? I wouldn’t start budgeting for playoff tickets just yet.

  18. Wonder if Fisher picks his pay check up with a mask and gun since he is robbing them of there money. What a bad head coach.

  19. That was one of the worst displays of a team underperforming its talent that I have ever seen. The Rams have a playoff caliber roster but couldn’t have beat a D2 team last night. Fisher and his staff need to be vacated if that team doesn’t start playing a lot better, and fast.

  20. Bring me the heads of the Fisher Fan Boys!

    Easily one of the worst active coaches in the NFL. There are numerous coaches on the street who can’t sniff an NFL job who have better career records than Fisher. How long can this charade go on?

    Even the BROWNS scored 10 points on Sunday! Against a better defense! The Rams were outcoached in all three phases of the game last night by CHIP KELLY! Yes, THAT Chip Kelly.

    Fisher, never very good to begin with, has been mailing it in for over a decade, coasting on reputation and his position of power within the league as a member of the rules committee.

    BRING ON THE CONTRACT EXTENSION!!!

    ————————————-

    How glad do you think Nick Foles was to get out of there this offseason? I can’t think of one QB that has had any success on the rams since Fisher took over. Keenum for a few weeks after Fisher fired his best bud OC to save his own skin is the only one I can think of.

    It’s hard to imagine he’s asking for an extension and raise.

  22. New year same story, Rams will turn this around and play a very spirited game against Seattle next week. The 49ers win against a better team on the opening Monday Night but go back to the cellar after that.

    Last year it was Minnesota, we know which team went on to win the NFC North and go to the playoffs, so everyone that is putting the 49ers on a pedestal and slamming the Rams, please give it a few weeks.

  23. Jeff Fisher has some sort of blackmail goods on someone very powerful in the NFL. Dude sucks, plain and simple. Can’t develop players, can’t put together a coaching staff. 7-9 is his ceiling. For real… how does he have a job?

  24. I realize no one is going to give credit to the Niners, this shatters all their hopes that this was a team to forget that is utterly devoid of talent.

    I am in agreement though, let’s wait until next week against Carolina to make a firm assessment of this team.

  25. Hopefully this will now permanently kill talk of contract extensions for Fisher and the GM. Even with Gurley that offense is hideous and Goff must be unspeakably bad given Keenum looks like he’d be beaten out on your local high school team.

  26. Surely no one is surprised by this. Worst coach in the league. Worst owner in the league. Wasted draft pick…again. Might win two games. Titans are on the clock with the lambs’ next draft pick. Sad they left the STL but feeling less sad every day.

  27. Jeff Fisher is a terrible coach.

    How can he get dollywhopped by a guy with 10 plays and a QB that can’t throw a 3 yd out??

    terrible all around.

  28. heck he could have just used their own picks on good WRs .
    they’re a lock for #1 overall, no trading necessary.

    “That’s some 7-9 s*** right there!”
    ====

    If this team wins anywhere close to seven games, Fisher WILL get a contract extension. LOL

    But go ahead and not rush that rookie into action before he’s
    “ready”.

    What a dope.

  30. How does Jeff Fisher still have a job in the NFL?

    22 years head coaching experience
    51% career winning percentage
    5 playoff wins

    If your goal as an owner is to hover around that 7-9 to 9-7 range forever then he’s you’re guy. However, after 22 years as a head coach I think you should know what you’re getting with him. Poor Rams fans…

    Can you imagine the Ram’s offense against the Seahawks defense …..on a short week…….this next Sunday?
    =============================
    The Rams scored 0 points. They can’t possibly get any worse. Seattle’s offense on the other hand, struggled to score 12 points against Miami.

    Not sure what your point is.

  32. As a devoted Rams fan, I’ve defended FisherBall tooth & nail, BUT NOW….I’m forced to agree with most of the comments on this blog….HE HAS GOT TO GO!!! That was beyond pathetic!! SMH SMH SMH

  33. Lots of hate on here. Nobody wants to give credit to Chip for putting out last year’s biggest dumpster fire. The 49ers look kike a football team again. That offensive line is impressive. The rams don’t have a lot going for them except their d-line. The Niners gave Gabbert plent of time,and Hyde plenty of holes. Well done. That same Rams line is going to eat my Seahawks alive next week.

    Not after one game, against the Rams. Of course, anyone is going to look better than Tomsula, who had no business being one of the 32 NFL head coaches.

  36. Did everyone think that the Rams were going to be transformed into a playoff team by moving from STL to LA ? Same players , same coaches , same organization , same owner that doesn’t care if they win or lose. STL had been seeing this kind of football for the last 13 years but the good fans of STL were ripped by the NFL and the owner for not supporting the team and having low attendance. Maybe every fan in LA and around the country can now see the truth and just how bad of an organization the LA Rams are. The King of California is very happy. He got what he wanted. He is in LA. This organization is the place where careers go to die. Just ask Stephen Jackson , Chris Long and James Laurinaitis. If Todd Gurley and Aaron Donald want to have a chance to win , they should demand a trade and get to a team that cares about winning. This organization clearly does not. I live in STL. Bitter ? Yes . Bitter about how the owner and the NFL treated STL. We deserved better. LA deserves better than what you are going to get.

  37. I’m glad Goff wasn’t in the game last night. He would have been murdered by the 49ers defense. For the wags, he’ll be active this week BY DESIGN. Keenum better keep his head on a swivel and put on thicker pads against Seattle.

    Great job, 49ers!

  38. Getting blown out by the 49ers has to be a wakeup call. Jeff Fischer s comments about not going 7 and 9 seem apt… The Rams are not going to make it to 5 wins if they can’t make a game against rebuilding San Francisco competitive.

    That said, it’s a long season and things change quickly.

    He thinks that because the Rams stink that it makes his Seahawks better. It doesn’t.

  40. His point is Seattle is a much better team than SF and if the Rams cant hang with SF how are they going to compete with Seattle. I looked the Rams schedule and counted 4 wins. 2 of those wins were against SF.

    Good God, tell me you don’t think the Rams DLine and the Miami DLine are on the same level ?

    Miami’s DLine is savage to say the least, and the Hawks OLine handled them “ok” for being a ragtag patched up line… The Rams DLine is definitely a step down… That’s the difference.

  42. By the time the new stadium opens , Todd Gurley will be a broken down back. With no offense around him , the other teams will focus on him and Fisher will run him 30 times a game. This organization will not win with the current regime. It needs to be cleaned out from top to bottom . The King of California is a very smart ( I assume he is but how smart do you have to be when you marry into $ 6 billion . Money can bully a lot of deals )business man but when it comes to owning sports franchises and hiring the right people to run those franchises he is not. Start with Demoff and all the way down to the coaches. The Rams might be worth $3 billion off the field but they are not worth 2 cents on it and that’s what the fans care about. All of his current staff is being rewarded for one thing , helping him get to LA. Winning is not part of that.
