On clear, mild day in Cleveland, the 49ers played in a dense, cold fog. The Niners lost to the lowly Browns 24 – 10 and frankly the 49ers were never in the game. The Niners looked bad in all phases of the game. Especially disappointing was the play of Blaine Gabbert and the offensive line. Gabbert was under intense pressure the whole game. In addition the receivers continued to drop passed. also the Browns ground game chewed up the the Niners defense. Johnny Mandel looked like a young Otto Graham.
The Niners face the beat-up Bengals next week then close with the Lions (on the road) and the Rams at home.
Jed York has to decide if he is okay with average to below average.
