Game Day — Stairway to Cleveland

For you Jefferson Starship fans: fuck you, we do what we want . . . On paper this should be a fairly easy go of things. On the field as well. Although these things rarely go as planned. Still a bit amazed how fast expectations have changed for this team. The demoralizing come from ahead loss to Dallas was followed by an eked out win on the road in Cincy. Week 4 was supposed to be the reality check for this team. Keep close, play tough, but in the end, get overwhelmed by the superior talent in Philly. Then Tampa, the west coast killers, and on to undefeated Detroit. These were all supposed to be teams that were better, stronger, and more prepared than the 49ers. Guaranteed lock wins when their fans looked at their respective schedules. Well, things didn’t work out that way for those guys.

Cleveland? Don’t know jack about them, other than Mike Holmgren is their GM. A job he failed at miserably in Seattle. Their biggest threat, Peyton Hillis is out, and Colt McCoy is a decent enough QB, I guess.Again, haven’t seen him at all. Their defense is ranked pretty high. But 2 of their 3 wins came at the hands of 2 winless teams, mail it Indy, and the Dullfins. So, this probably won’t be a blowout, but I don’t think it’ll be that close in the end.  Somewhere like 24-10.

Beyond that, we’ll have the Philly/Cowboy game on Sunday night.  Lots of interesting stories there. Dog killer vs Promo. America’s team vs the Broad St bullies. The Dream Team vs the scream team. Maybe Romo chokes under the bright lights on prime time football again. Vick has put up astounding numbers in his 4 losses. Should be another fun game. These guys usually have some crazy shit go on. Joe Pisarchik anyone?

    Dallas fans are in a deep funk after watching the Rangers fail to put away the Cards. They will be looking for a consolation win against Philly and God willing they will manage to snatch defeat from the clutches of victory. Only Dennis will mourn. Rest of us will find this reason for a few chuckles. Certainly Chuckles AKA the Chuckster will be sporting an evil grin.

    2 hours to bedtime, gotta be fresh for that 4 AM kick off.

  2. Flavor says:

    I think we rack up another 200 yards rushing and we shut the Browns down. I could easily see them being held to a field goal…….

    • phil fan says:

      Hope you’re right Flavor; wow that would be great! Gotta be better than my FF team against Big D, Dennis, Denny, Del Mar, old whatshisname.

  3. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Phil, you have an early 1-0 lead in our FF matchup. Enjoy it while it lasts. 😛

  4. twinfan1 says:

    I forget which one, but an ESPN “expert” said that Garrett needs to devise ways to keep the ball out of Romo’s hands.. I *think* he misspoke.

  5. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Those “experts” best not be dissin’ my fantasy QB. I’m gonna need him big time tonight vs Philly. I’m banking on 25+ pts from Jessica Simpson’s ex. You seen the latest pics of her pregnant? She’s eating for at least two…

  6. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Some early upsets brewing…
    Rams > Saints
    Cards > Ravens
    Fish > G-Men
    Crocodiles Crocs > Alex Sucks My Schlong

    If that last one holds true, the commish is gonna crawl inside a bottle.
    And I don’t mean the kind that have a ship in it…

  7. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Cardinals 24 Ravens 3

    After that stinker the blackbirds put up last Mon night vs the Jags, Jimbo’s bro might be looking for a new job this Christmas.

    I hear Macy*s could use some people up in gift wrap.

  8. unca_chuck says:

    Wish that Balt game was on. Why we get Miami/NYG I have no idea. Balt looks like a shakey-assed team all of a sudden. Their offense looks like something out of the Mike Nolan/Jim Hostler playbook.

  9. unca_chuck says:

    Couse, as I say that, Balt takes the lead. StL is still winning though.

  10. unca_chuck says:

    Niner continue their streak of never getting the ball.

    Niners recover!!! Yeah, baby.

  11. unca_chuck says:

    Brooks without his helmet gets the sack/fumble.

  12. unca_chuck says:

    Bullshit interference call, but I’ll take it.

  13. unca_chuck says:

    Touchdown! Marker has to be 12 men . . .

  14. unca_chuck says:

    Good to see them targeting Edwards.

  15. unca_chuck says:

    4″ penalty there.

  16. Bozo says:

    Justin TV is on today. I’ve got the game on and I’m stoked.

  17. phil fan says:

    STALEY, what a weapon!

  18. Bozo says:

    Staley? Damn.

  19. unca_chuck says:

    !st down. Juuust enough.

  20. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Anyone got Joe Staley on their fantasy team? Razzle-dazzle.

    TD Big Ben. Rapist fantasy pts. They count, too.

    Hey, you think Titus Young was open in the EZ? Chuck coulda completed that pass from the seat of his dropped pants as he got rejected from the whorehouse.

  21. unca_chuck says:

    Shit, that didn’t work.

    Still and all, great drive from the 6″ line.

  22. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Did ya see how the Panthers missed tying up the Vikings as time expired? Olindo Mare missed a chippie 31 yd FG wide left. He decided to dress up as Captain Hook a little early for Halloween. Guess who p/u Mare for his FF team this week?


  23. unca_chuck says:

    That’s ALL I need!!!

    Another movie committed to memory.

    Hah! SI must die!! Where’s Bullitt??

  24. phil fan says:

    Nice pictures of the Bay too. Ah, the good old days (2008). But don’t miss the 9ers play back then, retch

    • Del Mar Dennis says:

      Phil, very beautiful day out here in the Bay Area. Unseasonably warm weather and not a cloud in the sky. I started to sweat like a pig walking back from my neighborhood liquor store with beer just before kickoff.

      “You’d think it was a 120 degrees. Can’t be more than a 114.”

      I’ll save ya the trouble, that came “Blazing Saddles.”

      I’ve watched that movie approx. 340 times. No need to call, the men in the white coats are already on their way…

      • phil fan says:

        Nice, Fall in the Bay Area and….a winning football team! Sometimes it can get real hot at that time but it’s almost November. Where’s winter for you guys?

        Blazing Saddles, good one.

  25. phil fan says:

    GORE. Shit our offense is playing great

  26. Bozo says:

    Arm down? Still a fucking nice start.

  27. phil fan says:

    Who said we might shut out the Browns? Flavor? D going great guns too

  28. Del Mar Dennis says:

    I don’t know it it’s the sophomore jinx, but McCoy has severely regressed this year.

    The OL is giving Alex Scott “Bullshit” all day to throw. Even after he was shot down and drowned his sorrows in $10 tequila shooters at the whorehouse. Chuck could complain, ask why me, and offer to pay double after he was rejected thrice in the same night at his favorite house of ill repute.

    As I give them praise for their pass blocking, their run blocking just stunk on ice in that goal line try.


    And we just lost the challenge. We’re getting our hints from Chuck…

    • phil fan says:

      Shit McD is down

    • phil fan says:

      Sopoaga missing his blocks. How bout some play-calling?

      • phil fan says:

        Gore 89 yards rush in 2nd

      • Del Mar Dennis says:

        Phil, who’s your favorite Niner? Current, not all-time. Hell, you can give me both if ya want. Maybe he’s one in the same. Maybe he’s currently playing. Maybe he’s playing on offense. Maybe he’s playing quarterback.

        If you only knew how much I’m chuckling to myself self right now. I’d wager I’m chuckling to myself almost as much as those harlots laugh at Chuck when he propositions them. Almost.

      • phil fan says:

        I missed this during the game so I’ll answer now: Ronnie Lott for the all-time defender.
        Currently no, not the UQB but I do like Justin Smith a lot.

  29. grumpyguy says:

    Smith and Crabs have NO chemistry. Every pass is just a little behind or beyond him, and I don’t think it’s mostly Alex’s fault there.

    Nice blitz pickup to get the pass off though.

  30. phil fan says:

    SLANT to Edwards for 1st down chuck

  31. grumpyguy says:

    I was worried we might come out a little rusty or overconfident, but so far, we look pretty damned solid. Browns had a good goal line stand, but seeing as how they may not score today, it isn’t doing them much good.

  32. unca_chuck says:

    OK, play action now. Criminy, Harbaugh’s getting a little Singish here.

  33. unca_chuck says:

    There you go . . .

    Nice. Right where the blitzer came from.

  34. Kevin says:

    Damn 6-7 years of ineptitude by offensive coordinators trying to teach Alex the NFL. Nice to see the Yorks get it right in hiring Harbaugh and letting him coach this team!!

  35. unca_chuck says:

    Nice artice about Constanza and Seely (ST coach), both from Cleveland in the bee today.

    Got to say, the ST improvement this season has been as remarkable as every other phase of the team this year.

  36. unca_chuck says:

    Noooooonan!! Damn.

  37. phil fan says:

    Willis stops the receiver for 8 yard loss

  38. phil fan says:

    Injuries: Miller, McDonald, VD for 7 plays

  39. phil fan says:

    Colt got greedy, Willis with the rush, Goldson got the pick

  40. Bozo says:

    A pick after the time out, priceless.

  41. phil fan says:

    Cleveland outplaying us on O and D

    Look out Niners

  42. phil fan says:

    Another over throw of Crab, Punt

  43. Bozo says:

    I just lost my feed – Phil, do you still have it?

  44. phil fan says:

    Yes hold on will post

  45. unca_chuck says:

    Tine for ONE drive in the 2nd half. We are keeping these guys in the game. They’ve taken away the run. Time for slants.

  46. unca_chuck says:

    Fuck. The D’s been on the field all 2nd half.

    The fucking O needs one drive.

  47. grumpyguy says:

    49ers need to close this one out. They’ve let the Browns hang around in the Second Half and now its a ballgame.

    Not a good play by Goldson there. He is good in run support, does not look nearly as good with the ball in the air. He should have been over quicker to help Brown.

  48. phil fan says:

    Shit, Cribbs runs in for TD after catch

  49. unca_chuck says:

    Yup. Goldson is much better up close. It’s wake up time for the offense.

  50. unca_chuck says:

    One 1st down in the 2nd half?

  51. grumpyguy says:

    Edwards has SO MUCH better chemistry with Alex.

    Gotta play for the field goal at least here, eat some clock, finish these guys.

  52. unca_chuck says:

    Gore had the 1st down w/o the facemask, so, good call.

    The CB is giving Edwards the inside, so go to thaqt.

  53. Kevin says:

    They need a first down here

  54. grumpyguy says:

    LMAO. The Soapster will remember that forever.

  55. unca_chuck says:

    Fuckin’ a . . . This is wierd. It worked though.

  56. grumpyguy says:

    Nothing fancy now. Just pound it right down the middle, take the FG if you don’t punch it in.

    6-1 is sounding awfully damned good, isn’t it, guys?

  57. Flavor says:

    Looking forward to a niner fg. Not cause I bet the game but because that shut talking Adam Meyer was adamant that the Niners wouldn’t cover this week

  58. unca_chuck says:

    Soap should have lowered his shoulder. He would have blown the safety up

  59. unca_chuck says:

    Soap was a TE at one point in his college career.

    Bingo. That’s all they needed to seal this.

  60. Kevin says:

    Game over

  61. unca_chuck says:

    That was a great game they showed w/Fouts. I was there. Incredible back and forth. They had the ball last, so they won.

  62. Kevin says:

    Please do not play prevent D

  63. Kevin says:

    Yep prevent, go

  64. Kevin says:

    Prevent nothing

  65. Kevin says:

    Nice win

  66. Bozo says:

    Good game – fun to watch back East here. Thanks Phil for the link, mine got busted by NFL (or Justin TV just shut it down).
    Cheers all,

  67. unca_chuck says:

    6-1 is pretty fucking sweet. Cleve played pretty tough in the 2nd half, but in the end, it’s a win for the 49ers. Solid running, solid passing. solid ST.

  68. unca_chuck says:

    No turnovers. Well, except on downs.

  69. phil fan says:

    Good win by our guys, pretty much according to script. I think chuck gets the prize as closest score. I had 24-14 so 8 off the mark. Dennis gets the booby prize for worse call but hey he’s on the Niners shin kicking payroll. He’s the master of FF tho, kicking my butt. I sure hope chuck loses, hate to be tied with the guy!

    Cheers! 6-1!

  70. Kevin says:

    I am glad the Rams got there 1st win, I was worried about the Niners playing down to there competition and giving the Rams their first win.

  71. snarkk says:

    It’s nice after nearly a decade, having a team that can have a dominating first half against a pretty fair opponent, and still feel like they should have scored more. Alex played within the Harbaugh scheme, and is even checking himself now when he gets in a spot where earlier he’d throw an idiotic pick. He had a strip today, but he’s looking better. I didn’t even see a tip at the line, unless I missed one. 10 wins now is looking like in the bag, 11 very doable, even with a hiccup against an unworthy. Niner D is oppressively good. As long as the offense gets some good drives and gives the D a blow once in a while, it should dominate all but the elite offenses. I’m pinching myself…

  72. Flavor says:

    Well,I said 20-3, and if not for that weird-ass pass late in the 4th I would have nailed it cold. I’m just glad that Andy Meyer lost money on that game. I actually hold little ill will towards him but rather his clients who fork over 10K a month for his picks and then lose on top of that when they make a losing bet, I find myself LQTM when that happens……..

  73. twinfan1 says:

    Smith has always been a natural for the WCO, IMO. He’s not better now as much as we’re starting to see how much he was strait jacketed by the previous regimes. He actually gave notice last year after Raye left- he now has 20 TDs and 5 picks over his last 14 games…
    With Frank healthy and a dominant defense, this should be a team to be reckoned with in the playoffs.

    • phil fan says:

      Only a paid lackey “shin kicker” of the Niners would continue shilling the idea the QB and the whole f-ing team sucks.Speaking of Del Mar, this song will keep getting sung after they go 15-1 and win the Super Bowl. Because a man’s gotta earn his daily beer, I mean daily bread. You think he does this shit for free?

      For most of us not on the 9er payroll readily agree, you nailed this one twinfan. Go Alex, go Niners!

  74. unca_chuck says:

    If they can keep the run game cranking, they will be tough in the playoffs. The thing is, NO ONE is very special. Even Green Bay. The margin for wins and losses is very small. Smith and the offense cutting down on the turnovers is huge. The +15 in turnovers is a BIG reason why these guys are winning.

  75. unca_chuck says:

    Philly gets a false start out of a time out.


  76. unca_chuck says:

    Dallass is getting killed. Rex Ryan eating his words again. How’s 28 points in the 1st half for overrated, rEX?

    • phil fan says:

      Where did Soft hang out this past week? We can’t say Broncos or Seahawks cause they’re just terrible. No it was in Nawllins and Dallass, winners of the weekly FJ Soft award. Rex Ryan should shut his mouth and not just at meal time..

      • phil fan says:

        Cue the wailing and gnashing of teeth from Del Mar, harharbaugh

      • phil fan says:

        AND IF the Crocs beat the Schlong after the KC/SD game Monday nite… bad pun intended…crisis time for old Del Mar:

        “What happened when when you took the old Croc out behind the woodshed to give him a lesson for mocking the Cows BEFORE they got whupped today Dennis?”

        “Well the Schlong got beat but good”.

        “So that’s twice in two days?”

        “Yep a new personal best”

        Ok then! Bring it on!

  77. Kevin says:

    Before today’s game the QB rankings were Brady, Rodgers, Smith. Dennis have you forgiven Alex yet? Come on now give Alex the props he deserves!

  78. robd says:

    is it just me or is our best offensive player isaac sopoaga !

  79. robd says:

    imo it’s either sopoaga or staley !

  80. Flavor says:

    Denny, it’s a good thing that your boy Romo tossed that late td for you to score you a couple of points. I hate to think of what his passer rating would have been without that td. I’m sure his ESPN rating is significantly higher though, right?

  81. twinfan1 says:

    Where did Romo get the suit for the postgame interviews? He looked like the town drunk who gets propped up cuz he told his folks he was the mayor..and theyra comin’ to town…

  82. unca_chuck says:

    The Burlington Choke Factory . . .
