Game Day . . . Good, Bad, or Ugly?

Lots of differeing opinions about this Deetroit game. From we’ll get slaughtered, to a tough loss, to a victory. 5-0 Deetroit vs the 4-1 Niners. There are a lot of people out there that don’t believe in either team as being more than flashes in the pan. The winner will be the toast of the NFL. For a week, anyway. I happen to think the 49ers can get on these guys early as the Lions struggle to get going, as they usually do. The onus will be for the 49ers to keep the chains moving once a lead is established. If it is. Harbaugh showed what he could do last week by going aggressive early. The thing was, it was done with a lot of 2 TE/2 WR formations (and even a bunch of 3 TE formations), not the 4 WR sets I had been calling for (and expecting).

The nice thing about all this? Well, I dug the fact that the 2nd TD to VD came on one of the 3 TE sets. One the Niners had run out of the previous 4 times. Down and distance, or formation doesn’t dictate the play being called anymore. Harbaugh had TB completely off-balance the whole day. And TB’s defense isn’t taken lightly. My thought (OK, hope) is they can continue this style of play. I’d actually like to see more multi-WR sets. Get Swain in there. And run up the middle. Throw screens and delays. I think the Niners can use their aggressiveness against them. Should be a good game either way.

    There wasn’t any sarcasm, Jim acknowledged it was on him. Have you people ever watched the handshakes between coaches at the end of a game? Obviously not. Schwartz overreacted,although he claims the “handshake” was accompanied by an obscenity- he doesn’t say from who.
    There IS a proper decorum for the handshake. Jim did a hit and run, not even pausing for a “good job”, or some such polite chit-chat, Anyway, I’m busy contemplating playoff scenarios.

      Actually no I haven’t, that’s something new right? Never heard of that before, Yep first time for me. Funny I never saw that before.

      All sarcasm and irony aside Jimbo is well aware of shithead’s mouthing off before and during the game. Schwartz is a known prick who got taken down a peg or two and he deserved to have his disrespectful nose rubbed in it. Love the way it worked out. Lost the ballgame, his cool and the psy war. Geeky looking little prick too. Har har Harbaugh…

      What do you see on possible playoff matchups?


      • Del Mar Dennis says:

        Phil, I love ya buddy, but c’mon. It’s Week 6 and you’re talking playoff matchups.
        I’m sorry, but you have this clip coming. You brought this shit on your own.

      • phil fan says:

        Classic. Actually I was asking twinfan about what he said in his 6:36 post “playoff match ups”. Schwartz should be playing the role of Mora since they both lost. But he’s not that smart me thinks…

        But Del we miss the playoffs it will be bigger shocker than Alex winning the SuperBowl, ya think? LOL

    The offense had its problems today… but the defense… absolutely awesome. Outplayed the hyped Lions in their house. Frank did some big time running at critical moments too.

    This might be the best Niner defense since 1994, and with young guys like Bowman, Aldon Smith and Culliver, it might still be two or three years from its peak.

    OK, I’m out of this blog for the night. No reason for the “homo” crap. As I said, this talk of who nailed it was all in fun, no reason to get chippy, Skippy.

    • phil fan says:

      chuckster should speak for himself but I think that was a weak attempt at a bad joke on his part. (homey = homo) The ‘homo’ would refer to his disagreement with your point of view Not to you.

      Is there anything worse than a weak attempt at a bad joke that fails? Sure but who’s counting.

  4. grumpyguy says:

    I think our defense read all the hype about the Lions’ D-line and decided to make a statement today.

  5. Del Mar Dennis says:

    “Did Wyche castigate Walsh for skipping off field arm-in-arm with Roger Craig? ”

    That occurred September 20, 1987. One of the few Niner plays I missed live in my lifetime. Why? Well thank you for asking. I always took my girlfriend, Kelly, at that time to Disneyland for her birthday. Her birthday was actually September 9, but some schools still weren’t back in session at that time. And I sure the hell wasn’t going to the “Happiest Place on Earth” with a bunch of Rugrats running around and stand in lines longer than a Marion Barry coke trail. I don’t have any patience and can’t stand waiting in long lines. I’m working on it. Thank you Dr. Debra.

    Anyway, I was a nervous wreck that Sunday at the park because I didn’t know the Niner score. Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride wasn’t wild. The Haunted Mansion wasn’t Haunted. The Pirates of the Caribbean didn’t have as many yo-ho’s. And It’s a Small World wasn’t small. I didn’t have any fun that day because I didn’t know the score of the Niner game. I was a basket case.

    How that poor girl put up with my …let’s call them idiosyncrasies, I’ll never know. I imagine those Guess Watches and Louis Vuitton Bags (don’t call it a purse) at Christmas helped. Nothing like buying off your girlfriend to strengthen your relationship. Yo ho-ho and a bottle of rum.

    That game had a feeling of doom right up until the end. The Niners didn’t play well running or passing all day. The D couldn’t hold a lead and kept falling behind. If I recall right the 4th down play started at the Cincy 20 with time for just one shot and Rice ran straight for the right EZ corner and out jumped the DB for the ball. TD, ballgame. I laughed when I saw Bill skipping across the field like a little kid. The camera cut to Wyche and he just looked down and shook his head smiling as if to say “That’s why Walsh is the master. Congratulations”. Definitely not an arrogant prick like Lions HC, moron over there, Scheistkopf…

      I have a friend that is a college coach and worked with Jm Schwartz. He has said many times that Schwartz is a total D-bag, and that’s his reputation. Apparently Jim Harbaugh thinks the same. Regardless anybody that knows a lick about football know the Lions are a joke team they were going to fall. There last drive of the game, where they totally gave up proves it. A joke like there head coach.

      Harbaugh was definitely a little hyper with the hand shake/low-fiver/back-slap. And so I can see why Schwartz didn’t like it, but Schwartz went absolutely insane and took things to another level.

      Again, Harbaugh’s “handshake” was rude and inconsiderate, but Schwartz’s reaction was way over the top.

    14 tackles (unofficial) and still counting for Bowman. Not too shabby for that Lion.

    McNabb needs to retire post-haste. As I speak, Ponder is warming up on the sidelines…
    Give NcNabb a rocking chair, gold watch and little fanfare, and sail his ship outta port.
    He’s another Cinderella. The clock has struck, and it’s way past his bedtime.

    Didn’t you want him, Dennis?

  9. unca_chuck says:

    Niners are looking at Lloyd apparently

    • phil fan says:

      Chuck you think he could help us? More good than bad? Hope so. Maybe playing for a winner (that’s us) will settle this fellers butt down? Why does he keep getting traded? At Denver McDaniels left and the new guy’s got other ideas. Thinking Rams get him.

      On another note: seeing as it’s 5:30 PM (Monday) over heah I’m cracking open that first drink of the day. Rum and “Cobra” (an energy drink). Don’t want you guys thinking I’m some kind of pussy-ass “Schwaartz” or sumpin’….

      Cheers, see ya on the 30th. Great fucking win today!

  10. twinfan1 says:

    Most encouraging about the win was making so many mistakes and yet overcoming them for a tough road win. This team is now accomplishing things that might finally put to rest longing for the “Garcia Era”. Working on the “Young Era” next. With the defense looking to be special, the run game cranked up, Ginn’s return game, and a QB at his best in crunch time, dammit- we don’t want no bye…
