Spectre of Doom over Miami

Moon over My Hammy? Hey, sorry, ended up in Denny’s last weekend trying to get out of town. I-5 was flooded in Stockton on our way to Paso Robles, so we headed east on 12 and it started raining so thick I decided to pull over. There was Denny’s and their Hobbit menu, and their idiotically named breakfast sandwich. Still raining like  a bitch so we turned around and went home.

Anyhow, back to the Miami game. As easy as this one sounds, the Dolphins front line does a good job of run defense (8th in the league), and getting sacks (6th in the league with 33), but that may be due to the fact that they give up so many yards in the air (27th in the league). So, the hope is the coaching staff lets things open up some to attack their weak secondary. Nolan Carroll particularly has been lit up most of the year, so attack him. Miami’s offense is a work in progress and isn’t really scaring anyone. They are 23rd passing, and 17th rushing, 28th overall, and 27th in points scored.

Just scored a pair of tix to the game (I’m taking my son), so I won’t have the pleasure of posting here on Sunday. $150.00 each for 2 on the 4o yard line, lower east (pullout) side. Guess I got to mothball my Smith jersey . . .

    What in the hell is a sceptre of doom? A magic wand gone bad? A spectre of typos.

    Hang onto that signed Smith jersey. Not that many around I’d bet.

    Denny’s?WTF Chuck,You can do better then that even in a flooded area.Hope you didnt try those super spongy taste like barf sausages.Yuuck!!!!!

  3. 12th man says:

    you are going to need broad shoulders to display Kaepernick properly.

  4. phil fan says:

    Have fun at the game. We’ll be okay I think

    The spread according to our peerless pigskin prognosticators ranges from 8 by the conservative Irish Kevin to 28 ! by Twin and Flav. Jest git us a win boys…

    “Scepter Of Doom” is what Roman pulls outta his butt when he’s thinking “Hmmm, 3rd and long, time to run frank up the middle”. This is also known as SOD.

  6. WordPress swallowed another one Chuck

    Ahhh, yup. I freed ’em.

  10. Del Mar Dennis says:

    That makes 30 TDs on the year and counting for Peyton Manning. But we’re better off with the guy who’s holding the clipboard. All we need now is Bobby Boucher to man the water, and we’ll have one helluva All-Pro bench team.

  11. Flavor says:

    still having trouble feeling all ooey-gooey for Kap’s birth mom. I don’t think she’s doing this for money but she’s clearly enjoying the publicity with all the interviews. And she’s not really thinking about the pressure she’s putting on him “following him” on twitter and telling all the scribes how much she wants to meet him.
    Here were a couple of tweets between her and Kap back on May 3rd:
    Heidi Russo ‏@heidirn1
    @Kaepernick7 & respect your decision to have “no interest in ever meeting me.” I wish you nothing but the very best & couldn’t be happier 4u
    Heidi Russo ‏@heidirn1
    @Kaepernick7 Read you comments in media about me. You have forgotten who’s loved you and taken care of you. You were a part of my family for

    Anyway, this chick should just step back to the background and leave her *DNA* alone. If he wanted to meet her he would have, her pestering him about it isn’t making it happen and could even be a distraction for him…….

    • NoFear49er says:

      Her timing alone raises too many questions about her veracity.

      Must be the Alex Smith psyops team behind this play.

      • Flavor says:

        well, she went to a few of his Nevada games trying to meet him. But still, that’s a legit D1 school and he’s the QB of the team so there were reasons for her to want to reach out to him that weren’t just all about “love you, just want to meet you”. Still seems like she cares more about herself than him right now……

    • Grumpy Guy says:

      I doubt it’s about money either. More a woman who made a decision she did not want, and has never come to terms with. Add in a little egocentric narcissism and voila.

  12. Flavor says:

    Manning with a single TD pass v the raiders and just now couldn’t get it in from 1 on first down. The raiders suck, shouldn’t Manning have about 8 TD’s tonight?
    Ha, I could care less about this gm but I’m rooting for the Raiders to win (and hopefully pound Manning’s dumb ass deep into the turf).

  13. rtfirefly says:

    I got a ticket in a luxury box in Al Davis’ stadium a few years back. Just a gift from a friend.
    You couldn’t see out of the plastic window screens.
    The food was nice, though. I kinda wanted to watch the game.

  14. Del Mar have you lost yer mind? You put me up against Uncas Ugly Army and then bet on ME? You sir are a man of faith.

  15. 12th man says:

    Phil, was that a rhetorical question?

  16. unca_chuck says:

    And the Raiders bet the farm on Palmer. They have what, 3 draft picks in 2013? 3,4,& 5?


  17. Winder says:

    Thank God we’re not Raider fans. I feel so sorry for em that I do hope Grudden comes in to clean up the mess. I made McFadden my #1 pick on most of my FF drafts, what an idiotic move that was. Anyway, I think we clean up our act this week and do a little old fashioned stomping on the fish. Great seats chuck, have some fun. 34-10 Niners

  18. unca_chuck says:

    Looks like we’ll get to see AJ Jenkins this Sunday. Per Matt Maiocco, Manningham (shoulder) did not practice; CB Tarell Brown (hamstring) and LB Aldon Smith (shoulder) were limited.

    I’m looking at Smith having a big day against the rookie . . .

    And, in other news, Red Skelton is starting for the Cards against the Seahawks on Sunday. Good comedy there. Maybe he can perform a miracle and beat Sea in their house. Uh, right.

  19. twinfan1 says:

    Has anyone looked less like a pro football coach than Dennis Allen ? Nolan, Singletary, Harbaugh: you can see any of those guys leading his men into battle. Allen? A raid on the library?Allen’s guys are getting flagged for “needlessly rude behavior”. Cable slugged an assistant coach, Allen spoke harsly to Amy’s secretary…
    Sigh..this isn’t a team that needs a “Chuckie”, They need a slob. A “fat fuck”. A guy who eats a Turducken all by himself. Raw. Carson Palmer is a fine QB for the team now coached by Vinnie Ryan. Hell, anyone is the perfect QB for a team that wins by gouging the eyes out of the opponent’s players. The old Raiders survived on cocaine, Jim Beam, and IV PEDs. Bring ’em back.

    • Winder says:

      Lol. i think most of the old Raider fans survived on the same stuff too, sadly, many have departed for same reasons(excluding the IV PEDs, they were injecting other substances).

  20. unca_chuck says:

    Right. Forget Chuckie, they need reach deep into their past for John Madden . . .

    Boom! Pow! Whap!

    Time fer some scoring predictions since folks are talking about our chances VS da Fish: 2nd edition

    Chuck: 28-10 Niners. Another defensive beat-down. Kappy hits his passes. Gore gets going.

    Phil: 31-17 Niners. With a game plan to take advantage of Kap’s talents downfield, some good runs by LaMichael James and 2 sacks by Aldon. “Scepter Of Doom” is what Roman pulls outta his butt when he’s thinking “Hmmm, 3rd and long, time to run frank up the middle”. This is also known as SOD. Gonna run a bunch

    Flavor: 38-10 Niners. We eat Miami alive: 38-10 (tied/same w/ twinfan who called first. Ties are okay just ask the Niners))

    Twinfan: 38-10 Niners. Well, I *seriously* predict a win. A big one. 38-10 Niners. Miami’s defense is actually so-so at best-20th overall. 27th against the pass. They do rush the passer pretty well and QBR is a mediocre 82.3 against them but they give up a lot of yards. Big game for Colin and Jimbo.

    Irish Kevin: 17-9 Niners. …Go back to the play calling in the Chicago game, pass on 1st and 2nd downs and use the run sparingly, the Niners should win this game. But IMO Harbaugh is now playing to make it to the playoffs, he is not playing to win the division. He will call plays that will get the Niners the lead and then go run and conservative play calling and rely on the Defense to win. I just don’t see the Niners going to the SB with the kind of inconsistent play calling that JH does. Since the Chicago game JH as been reigning in Colin and his passing, except when necessary. Like I said, might as well be Alex out there. Cry Havoc, and let slip the dogs of war. That’s what needs to happen…oh and just to prove my point. SF 17 – Miami -9

    rtfirefly says: 27-6 Niners for me

    barleyfreak: 24-10, Niners Jenkins and James don’t get on the field. Kap has 2 TD passes and a pick. Akers makes a field goal w/o the game on the line. Huzzah. There are no pitch plays. CK won’t see anything but a variety of zones until he can figure em out.

    Step right this way an make yer calls people. We’re at the Crossroads, we’re on the brink, sun gonna come up or will the sceptre of doom begin to rise in the east?

    27-17, 49ers.

  22. NoFear49er: Niners defense is at home and pissed. Just miss the shutout. 27-3 Niners.

    Alleykat: 28-6 Niners…There will actually be a Randy Moss&Vernon Davis sighting in this game as both will score a TD!

    Winder: 34-10 Niners. I think we clean up our act this week and do a little old fashioned stomping on the fish. Great seats chuck, have some fun. 34-10 Niners

    Del Mar and snarkk to go. Will post final edition before game time

  23. unca_chuck says:

    Well, there is Jim Ryan, but he took the less sleazy route and is a lawyer . . .

  24. rtfirefly says:

    Luck scored a 37 on that ridiculous test.
    Peyton a 29.
    RG III a 24.
    I wasn’t going to post on Pearl Harbor Day, but I then remembered what my relatives and friends fought for.

  25. Irish Kevin says:

    Chuck I just sent you an email

  26. NoFear49er says:

    ***Off topic- humor***

    A friend sent me this, some of you folks might like it anyway.


  27. “Harbaugh on why the team has tended to bounce back — in a big way — in games after losses or ties.

    “You’re ticked off – that’s probably the best way to describe it,” he said. “Usually when you’re ticked off, you’re going to do one of two things. You’re either going to do something about it or you go cower in the corner and shrivel up in the fetal position.”

    I think they are going to bounce back in a big way myself

  28. twinfan1 says:

    Many probably know that you make make your own assault rifle with a 3D Printer! Keep in mind that this probably costs more than just buying one, legally of course, but nothing is more satisfying than killing the paper boy with a weapon you built yourself!

  29. Del Mar Dennis says:

    “Sloppy and Off?”

    A) main track and turf course conditions when it’s raining.
    B) two words preceded by “you’re” and “get” you hear from the girlfriend.

  30. Del Mar Dennis says:

    I went to do a little Christmas shopping yesterday and some moron ran into a pole next to the Nation’s and knocked out all the power in the shopping center. Fortunately Pete’s Place still continues to serve drinks in the dark. I hadn’t planned on going to the bar, but it made my shopping much more tolerable. Now that I think of it I should send the stupid mook a Christmas card.

  31. Winder says:

    Yeah, I’m having a hard time with the Christmas spirit this yr. My shopping consists of the gift card section of any store, and boxes of candy from costco. A nice win tomorrow would help some though. So many of my old friends have passed the last few yrs that I can count my Christmas card list with one hand. “F-ing” weird.

  32. twinfan1 says:

    Nobody expects anything from me and those expections are met.

    • rtfirefly says:

      I have done what I can, and now we’ll just all buttoned up for the first real storm.
      Looks like it’ll miss us. I would much rather snow than the wind.
      I hope I can post tomorrow when it hits.

  33. Grumpy Guy says:

    Brandon Jacobs is unhappy. Everyone all together now: “Awwwwwwww….”

    Where is my violin? The tiny one…


  34. unca_chuck says:

    He should call Brian Westbrook.

    New post is up. Gearing up for the game tomorrow. Got to leave early. . .
