Any new injuries besides possibly Speight?

Obviously Speight took a hit that hopefully will have no lingering effect.  Did anyone recognize any other potential injuries yesterday?  Would be great to be going into the conference games in decent shape of course.

Related, I trust the order of greatest liklihood of return this week for Lewis, Charlton and Mone is that order.

You think? Seemed like the big plays they got they were targeting our safeties. I'm not sure Lewis makes a difference on those plays, but as far as moving the ball in general on those first few drives maybe they don't and the safeties don't get put into those positions to begin with.

All of those guys are pretty elite weapons.  But I think the original point has some merit.  Outside of some sweeps and some packages for Jabrill, none of those guys provide us with an elite running game.  While not impossible, it's difficult to win a conference championship with a "game-managing" QB, if you lack a ground game that can grind things out between the tackles.  Fortunately, we have a good defense, good special teams, and a staff that will ensure that the players continue to improve, but we do need Speight to keep getting better, along with the running game, if we expect to finish the regular season 11-1 or better.

Sad but true.  We are not beating Ohio State 1997-style by holding them to a couple of TDs over the course of a game while our offense spends 2 quarters figuring things out.

We can't just go 3 and out, and punt and play field position.  We will have to keep up with them scoring wise.

took command of the game. I was heartened rather than displeased overall. Guy got his shit together, led his passers (as Harbaugh noted), managed the game. He was candid about it afterward, too.

Still think the calendar sets up about as well as it could, that we're a little better than the doubters believe, with lots of ceiling too--especially given some of the lingering injuries.
