    Whitner almost saves our bacon

  4. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Goddamn! That was almost game if he held on to that INT.
    And of course we give up the 3rd don…
    There is NO God.

  5. Irish Kevin says:

    Let’s get out of this prevent D!!!

  6. unca_chuck says:

    Fangio is giving this away.

  7. snarkk says:

    Bring the pressure packages. Now…

  8. Chico says:

    C’mon Fangio – adjust.

  9. snarkk says:

    Surprise — a blitz and an incomplete pass….

  10. phil fan says:

    Out of the 3 down thta’s not working. PRESSURE1

  11. Irish Kevin says:

    Rodgers is the leading rusher for GB 27 yards

  12. Irish Kevin says:

    Whewww!! Yes a win

  13. unca_chuck says:


  14. phil fan says:

    Fuck that was close. Prevent my ass

  15. snarkk says:

    Big blitz and it worked….

  16. Nipper says:


  17. rob says:

    defensive domination by d-line , lb’s and db’s on that one !

  18. unca_chuck says:

    Fangio learned his lesson. NO FUCKING 3 MAN RUSH!!!!!

  19. Chico says:

    Without the refs shitty calls, we win by at least 7 more points.

    Cheers on the win @ Green bay fellas!

  20. Bozo says:

    Hell of a win. Think I’ll switch to baseball mode

  21. Nipper says:

    WOO HOO!

  22. twinfan1 says:

    That was a classic. Great win.

  23. snarkk says:

    Amazing how GB can compete with virtually no running game.
    11-5 is definitely in the ballpark now. This defense is stellar, if Fangio let’s em lose.
    Huge win, huge win…

  24. unca_chuck says:

    here were shitty calls on both sides. But from the opening kickoff on, GB got a bunch of help.

  25. unca_chuck says:

    I said 28-20. It was 30-22. Point differential was right.

  26. Grumpy Guy says:

    One down. Eighteen to go.

  27. unca_chuck says:

    Edwards with the whiff.

  28. snarkk says:

    Take that Pack BS runback for TD away, and it’s more indicative of the ballgame. Niners really had control most of the game. Rogers probably throws 4 TDs next week. Wow, Arizona wins over Seattle….

  29. unca_chuck says:

    AZ’s a tough place to play. And Sea went with the rook. But Edwards just let a TD go right through his hasnds.

  30. Alleykat says:

    Classic,we get extended coverage of the Seattle/Ariz and.whats the 1st thing we see is the idiot Scabs looking like the dumbshits they are ,all huddling around a review booth.It’s gonna be a loooooooooooong season for eveyone if this.shit continues.

  31. rtfirefly says:

    At least I had the first half score pegged. I thought it would be the final.

  32. Del Mar Dennis says:

    WTF did I say about not shaving the day of the game? The shit is starting to itch now.
    But I’m a trooper. I’ll keep my 49er beard until tomorrow. Listen to me and listen to me good…my hair gets cut at the appropriate time. I cut my hair every week. I may be bald, but I’m a clean shaven bald. And you know what?

    How ’bout those Niners!?!?!?!?”

    I’ll shave Tuesday.

  33. twinfan1 says:

    Alex was a playmaker first half, game manager in the second-that works for me. But this was reallly a compltete game against a very good team. And we overcame the bad calls *and* very poor field position…

  34. Flavor says:

    I didn’t think we’d win this game because of the location and the opponent and the time of year but I couldn’t be more stoked about how we performed. NO ONE goes into GB and hands the Pack their ass. And they only crept back into it due to bush league officiating.
    Alex Smith was very good as always.
    125.6 > 93.3 is all you need to know about the QP bitch slap that Smith put on Rodgers…..

  35. unca_chuck says:

    Bowman gets the game ball . . .

    Gore did great.

    All around excellent game. The officiating was abysmal.

  36. unca_chuck says:

    Sorry Dennis. You can’t become a fan after the game. NO PROPS FOR YOU!!!!

  37. unca_chuck says:

    Too many good players to list. Alex hit just about every WR on the team. Blocking was shakey, but this is one of the hardest places in the league to win in.


    • Flavor says:

      If Dennis’ schtick about A-Smith wasn’t so fucking weird and obsessive it might actually be described as pathetic.
      But since it’s the former I really don’t know what I’d call it…….

  38. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Did Chuck win the score prediction? Good for you. As a side note, Alex was MONEY. If I complained, I’d be a fucking phony . Alex played a great game. This Week 1 win throws put my predictions out the window. Good for you guys who carried on with the faith.

    I still believe Peyton Manning was the Answer.

    • Flavor says:

      Well we are going to see how that plays out in our bet.
      My angle is that Manning gets knocked out at some point in the year. And Smith will stay rock solid all year. We run the ball, something a lot of fans don’t like. So Smith isn’t going to be ringing up the 300 yard games too often (unless they’re losing, and what legit Niner fan would root for that?)

    • phil fan says:

      Twin won it by being 2 points off the final. He called 30-24 vs actual of 30-22.
      Chuck was second with 28-20; 4 pts off. He had the points differential right = 8
      Phil 3rd with 27-24 ; 5 pts off.

      Well prolly a bunch a ways to figure it but that’s how I look at it anyway. Just for fun

      Great game!

  39. unca_chuck says:

    Dennis, Manning isn’t going to make it through week 6. Regardless of what you think, Manning will not be able to take the pounding of a regular season.

    • Del Mar Dennis says:

      Hey, Chuck! I can’t become a fan? Nigga please. I”ve been a fan since John Brodie opened it up. I( I have his autogra[gh AM a 49ers fan. Come let me… SB XXIII… from Miami…

      Don’t you goddamn exclusive me on a weak verbal tort such as it is…
      “In am The Lord Thy God. Do not submerse

  40. phil fan says:

    What if Manning was our QB and took the hit Smith did by Clay Matthews? Driven to his knees with CM pile driving his head into the astroturf: EL SNAPO. Game ovah

  41. unca_chuck says:

    Since it’s my blog, my call is the winner!!!

  42. twinfan1 says:

    It’s all yours, Chuck,

  43. Grumpy Guy says:

    Alex posted a QBR of 125.6 today. Impressive. All off-season I’ve said with our defense we only need a modest improvement on offense to get over the top. One game does not make a trend, but it was damned encouraging.

    • Flavor says:

      We added some WR’s but didn’t change our offensive philosophy—which I think is key. Too many fans get hypnotized by passing yards and the fact that everyone TELLS THEM it’s a passing league now.
      But that’s just a bunch of bullshit.
      Running the ball controls the clock. It also sets up the pass. And we now, FINALLY, have a few receivers for Smith to target.
      Alex was qbing with one hand behind his back last year with the shit he had to throw to. And I don’t WANT him throwing more than he did today. A balanced offense is the way to go.

  44. Flavor says:

    And how about some love for David Akers and that kick and the fucking defensive players who didn’t block that line drive kick.
    What is it about the 63 yard field goal? How many years does this record stand with nothing more than a tie? We’re talking about one fucking yard. Has anyone ever analyzed who actually had the longest 63 yarder? Hash marks, feet, all that jazz?
    Akers kick was stupendous and he fucking killed it. You knew it had a shot as soon as he hit it.

  45. unca_chuck says:

    I tell you one thing, We actually have WRs now. VD isn’t the only pass catching weapon.weapon.

    Hey. it has been a slow offseason.

    I’ll change it.

  46. Grumpy Guy says:

    I still don’t think Joe Staley is a pro bowl left tackle, though. Solid, good, okay. Elite? No.

    Everyone else on the offense had a very good day. And the defense was awesome.

  47. twinfan1 says:

    What Smith showed again, however, is that he can throw and make plays, not just manage. Rodgers piled up his yards playing catch up, but earlier Alex and Aaron were comparable in every way- if the edge wasn’t to Alex.

    • Flavor says:

      Smith was fantastic today, especially considering the adverse field. People still aren’t giving the Niners enough credit for how they have played on the road under Harbaugh……

  48. Flavor says:

    Dennis, are you enjoying Manning’s dump offs? Be happy he’s at least starting to feel his fingers again.
    In college, my best friend’s were enormous Denver fans and they still hurt from the skewering I gave them for their SB losses to the Niners. We’re all still tight but the *rivalry* has waned over the years and both of them are *off* the Manning pick up—they think he’s gonna get broken into pieces, just like me.
    But your blind commitment to the back of his football card, all the while continuing to disrespect the QB of your supposed favorite team, is going to be an especially delicious re-ignition of my hatred of the Broncos. Thanks for that, I’ve missed it.

  49. phil fan says:

    Chuck’s da winnah of the scoring challenge- nailed the differential. But WHO is the biggest loser? Is it Grant Cohn who called on his blog for the Packers to beat the 49ers Sunday, 34-23? An 11 point spread. Or is it our very own humble prognosticator DEL MAR Dennis who predicted “Del Mar: 34-20 GB “In favor of the team with the better QB.”

    Hmmm, 14 point spread in the wrong direction there Denny. You are the undisputed winnah of the Biggest Loser award my friend. Because you see AS ain’t too shabby and overall the 49ers are a far better TEAM, O, D, and ST.

  50. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, given the field position Smith faced, he did fantastic. The only real bad thing was the blown punt coverage.

  51. unca_chuck says:

    Well, that and Fangio going with that 3 man rush midway through the 4th quarter.

  52. snarkk says:

    I’m down with one game at a time, but I’m looking a bit forward to the Niners vs. Jets game back there, 4th game of the season. I would love the Niners to absolutely destroy the Jets, and shut those ECoast putzes the hell up. Just destroy them, and mangle Tebow in the process. If I hear or read any more headlines about the phucking Jets, I’m going to barf bricks…

  53. Grumpy Guy says:

    The scary thing is, this offense still has plenty of room to grow. We were not very good on third down yesterday – 2 of 9. Gore came up short on third and short twice. Crabtree once, also. With Jacobs some of that may improve. We still sustained drives better than last year, because we were getting quite a few first downs on second, or even first down.

    In many ways I think this was Alex’s best game in a 49er uniform. He played better against the Saints last year, but only for an interval at the end of the game. Yesterday he was consistent, which has been something that has often eluded him in the past. He started off solid, running the offense efficiently, and got better as the game progressed. I think he only had one incompletion after halftime. And continued last year’s trend of avoiding any kind of serious mistake. It was really a hell of a performance, in a huge game, against a guy many have seen as “the girl who got away”.

  54. twinfan1 says:

    Alex has definitely improved- that’s to be expected of him. But his coaching staff and support players are finally as good as he is.As one recent story finally acknowledged- his real breakout began in 2010 (after Raye left). His QB rating was over 90 the rest of that year, and he continued his upswing last year with a smart offensive mind at the helm. With his new weapons and another year in Harbaugh’s system, yesterday should have been no surprise at all. Of course, I’ve been an “apologist” ever since he was drafted.

  55. unca_chuck says:

    Yes you have, Mike. And I wavered in supporting him, mainly because I thought he wanted out as fast as he could go after the 2010 season. I had pretty much stuck with him during the abjectly terrible coaching he recieved from Nolan and Singletary, but the scene of him in the locker room wearing a Padres hat was a nod to what I thought was his desire to get out of SF. Forces greater than humanly imaginable kept him here, and Smith is finally reaping the rewards of sticking around. It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. He’s a doof when it comes to talking to the media, but it’s obvious every player on that team has his back.

    New thread is posted. . .

    A great post by Just RB. I couldn’t have written it myself. I wish I had.

    Niners didnt get to the NFC championship game last year by accident , the cobb run back was given to him by the refs two blocks in the back that clearly gave him the corner. Then a soft 3-4 zone read for arron rodgers for a score in the (4TH Q), defense shut him down the whole game till we lightened up on him , get a clue theirs a new sheriff in town and it aint a Cheese head, congrats to the niners alex smith and the smash you in the mouth and ask questions later DEFENSE………
