CINCINNATI (AP) -- Receiver Chad Johnson's touchdown celebration went exactly as planned. Everything else was made up on the run.
This decision comes down to the style of offense the 49ers decide to play. If they decide to play a style that doesn't rely on a drop-back passer, then Garcia is perfect. His style is suited to an offense that allows him to run around and make plays when a play breaks down. But if the 49ers are looking to go with a more traditional drop-back quarterback, where the QB is expected to lineup and execute the offense placed in front of him, then he might not be the best fit.
Question on the Bengals: Right now, does Palmer even get a shot at starter in training camp?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
Owens joined Jerry Rice as 49ers who have scored 300 points. ... Bengals LT Levi Jones played the entire game six days after having torn knee cartilage repaired. ... Dillon and several other Bengals were limited by the flu Sunday. Dillon carried nine times for only 24 yards. ... Rudi Johnson became the first Bengals running back to have three 150-yard games in one season.
