49ers News, Notes, and Stats From Packers Game

D WizzleSenior Analyst IAugust 17, 2008

QB J.T. O' Sullivan led the team to two touchdowns in the first half.

O' Sullivan finished 8-17 for 154 yards with one TD and one terrible interception to Charles Woodson.

Alex Smith went 5-12 for 62 yards. Smith only played the 3rd quarter.

O'Sullivan completed some nice passes to receiver Josh Morgan including a 59-yard TD at the end of the first half.

Morgan, a rookie receiver from Virginia Tech, has looked really good in the first two preseason games. He's a big and muscular player and reminds me of Terrell Owens back when he was a 49er.

New punt returner Allen Rossum capped off the scoring in the game with a sweet 67-yard return of a Jon Ryan punt.

The 49ers showed a pass rush last night. They were collapsing the pocket of the Green Bay quarterbacks all evening.

Ray McDonald and Tully Banta-Cain did a great job pressuring the quarterbacks.  There was no pass rush at all last year.

If the 49ers defensive line can play like this throughout the season, the secondary will look a lot better than it did last season.

Undrafted rookie WR Cam Colvin looks to be a good candidate for the practice squad if he doesn't make the 53-man roster.

Isaac Bruce needs to play more so he can gain some chemistry with the quarterback. I don't care if he is a veteran and knows Mike Martz's system, he is playing with a new quarterback this season and needs to get his timing down with whoever will be throwing him the ball.

Safety Dashon Goldson looked impressive last night as well. I would like to see him start over Mark Roman. Goldson is a ballhawk. He played a lot of cornerback in college when he was playing for the Washington Huskies.

Mike Nolan has said one of the reasons he likes O'Sullivan is because he has "competitive fire."  So did Trent Dilfer.
