O'Sullivan aces passer rating ... who needs J.T.?

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

J.T. O'Sullivan, the two-time ex-Bear, just maxed out the passer rating formula against the Bears defense.

O'Sullivan was removed at the beginning of the second quarter with the 49ers ahead 13-10. He directed scoring drives on all three possessions, including a 37-yard touchdown pass to Jason Hill for a touchdown. The play before was a 40-yard pass to Vernon Davis in the two-play, 77-yard drive.

O'Sullivan's final numbers -- 7-for-8 for 126 yards and one touchdown.

It's probably locked up the starting job for the journeyman. The Bears cut him last summer after he was the co-offensive MVP of NFL Europa for the Frankfurt Galaxy.

Remember, the Bears took Chris Leak to training camp last summer instead of O'Sullivan.

So far, Kyle Orton has looked steady. The high-priced defense vs. the last-ranked offense in the league from a season ago ... not so good.

Give it up, Biggs! J.T. is tearing apart a Bears defense that keeps missing tackles and blowing coverages. He is not a good NFL quarterback and won't last all season as the 49ers starter. Who needs J.T.? Not the Bears. I'll take either Orton or Grossman any day over him.

Sorry, but I agree with Brad. We should have kept O'Sullivan, instead of Leak - or Rex. And the comments about the defense sound right on to me. A bunch of these guys had big pay days, but they have not played a single dominant game yet, even against two lousy offenses.

We may have a lot more problems on this team than we thought.
