Game Day! Playoffs for Breakfast! Carolina Payback

Here we go. A shot at our 3rd NFC Championship game in a row. We do know that to get to the Super Bowl we would have to go through Seattle. Stop me if you think the Seahawks were pretty nondescript in their win. If not for the fumble, the Saints could have taken over in the 2nd half and won. And if Marcus Colston didn’t have the biggest brain fart in sports history, well, they could have tied it.

Anyhow, as much I would have loved to see the championship come here, it would be a certain kind of special to beat Seattle in the Ding dome next week. Today? Well the biggest thing we need is a better showing by the offensive line. Mike Iupati was dinged up, and of course VD got dinged up early and Celek was out as well. I think Eric Reid went out as well, and Aldon Smith was just returning from his rehab. And Crabs of course. The biggest missing piece. With all that, the Niners were a near-completion to V McD that was broken up from kicking a game winning FG.

Surprising in the 2nd game was the effectiveness of LeGarrette Blount. Indy’s defense was great at keeping Brady out of the end zone, but not the running backs. For all the injuries NE has overcome, they are doing a pretty good job of things.

For once can we have a laugher?

    That was a good call.

  2. unca_chuck says:

    His feet were down.

  3. NoFear49er says:

    Fuckin’ Harbaugh!

    • Grumpy Guy says:

      With 5 seconds left, it may not hurt as much as it could have. But he has got to learn to control himself. Someday he’s going to cost himself a game.

  4. Grumpy Guy says:

    That’s a TD.

  5. sandy32koufax says:


  6. unca_chuck says:

    They’d better overturn this.

  7. Erin says:


  8. unca_chuck says:

    Hated the clock management there, but they got the play.

  9. Grumpy Guy says:

    First Half summary: It’s Better to be Lucky Than Good.

  10. unca_chuck says:

    First TD in 6 quarters.

  11. unca_chuck says:

    Well, for all the crapitute, we got the lead.

  12. Irish Kevin says:

    Boy do they have a lot of adjustments to make!! On D and on the O!!

  13. Erin says:

    Glad to have the lead, but refs have been inconsistent all game and we’ve benefitted greatly. Hope it doesn’t even out

  14. unca_chuck says:

    I really don’t get all the shit around Harbaugh. Certainly the players love a guy that will go to bat for them. He’s intense, crazy, and usually right. He’s no different than Chucky ever was.

    Tell ya one thing. They’ve left a lot more points on the field than we have.

  15. James says:

    Boldin has only been with the Niners a year. He’s really the one bad actor Aikman feels compelled to call out, after the totally laughable we get no respect behavior of Carolina? Furthermore, the late hit in the first quarter Aikman labelled as terrible was the right call. The DB saw the ball was nowhere near Davis and had time to hold up.

  16. NoFear49er says:

    CK7’s 11 for 24 with only eight rushes for less than twenty yards. How in the hell are we ahead?

  17. Erin says:

    Almost looked like Davis stepped OB before he caught the TD pass

  18. unca_chuck says:

    The clock management was horrible on that last drive, but they lucked out.

    • Grumpy Guy says:

      Actually it worked out great – we scored, and left no time for Carolina to respond.

      They do get the ball first in the second half, though. We better have a scheme to limit Smith and the TE. So far we are not outplaying them, we’re just outlasting them on the scoreboard.

  19. 12th man says:

    Kap has not been too accurate today.

  20. unca_chuck says:

    He got it when it counted. I hope that TD gives them all a little confidence and they can get a couple good drives. Neither team is running at all.

  21. Grumpy Guy says:

    Nice coverage by Brock. Where would we be without that kid?

  22. unca_chuck says:

    There you go. 3 and out. Near pick and a near block.

  23. Grumpy Guy says:

    Time to see if Roman made adjustments at the half.

    This offense relies a lot on the fullback. That’s out the window now.

  24. unca_chuck says:

    I was more intent on signing Brown when the season started. Brock has been awesome.

  25. Grumpy Guy says:

    Dixon in at FB – not sure how well that will work.

  26. NoFear49er says:

    Is Tukuafu out? I saw him running on the sidelines and oiling that hinge in his ankle.

    • Grumpy Guy says:

      Yeah he got rolled on pretty bad – looked terrible, I’m surprised he is walking at all. I doubt he can play, and next week would be doubtful from the look of it.

  27. Erin says:

    Nice call on the keeper there.

  28. Grumpy Guy says:

    CB was asleep there and Boldin made him pay.

  29. Grumpy Guy says:

    Jesus almost a terrible mistake there.

  30. Grumpy Guy says:

    There is the running TD for Kappy. Could have done without the Cam mockery, though.

  31. Irish Kevin says:

    So you guys are going to give me shit and make fun of me, but yes they need Gore in the second half, good to see him running!!

  32. unca_chuck says:

    There you go. Beat these guys down.

  33. sandy32koufax says:

    Niners look like they’ve adjusted so far.

  34. The wrong team is now leading by 10.

  35. unca_chuck says:

    Time for max pressure.

  36. Erin says:

    Not too bright TD celebration by Kap, but Car is doing just as much punk trash talking. C’mon D!!!!

  37. unca_chuck says:

    Carolina clowned all through the game in SF. Payback’s a bitch.

    3 and out. Salt this away.

  38. Grumpy Guy says:

    We have to get some hits on Newton. He has come a long way in the last 12 months and if you leave him back there all day, he is going to hurt you.

  39. Irish Kevin says:

    Passing plays are killing us!

  40. NoFear49er says:

    Good penalty there. That would have been six.

  41. Grumpy Guy says:


  42. Grumpy Guy says:

    Terrific sequence by the 49er pass rush.

  43. Erin says:

    Newton has way too much time. Let’s keep bringing LBs!!!!!!!!

  44. unca_chuck says:

    Coverage sacks are sacks, but we still have to get in a little faster. Long drive of our own and we can salt this away.

  45. unca_chuck says:

    Beauty was they burned a lot of clock and got nothing.

  46. Grumpy Guy says:

    One quarter and a few seconds to go, and it’s a two score game. Just got to hold on here and not make mistakes.

  47. unca_chuck says:

    Just have to get the field position game going. Get a couple first downs and pin ’em deep. Or get a TD and put this fucker away.

  48. Grumpy Guy says:

    Every first down counts huge now. Great play by Boldin.

  49. NoFear49er says:

    Our second-half offense looks like we can go into Seattle with some confidence. The first-half version not so much.

  50. unca_chuck says:

    Thank you, Anquan!!

  51. 12th man says:

    One more score.

  52. Grumpy Guy says:


  53. Flavor says:

    Harb’s grandpa died this morning. I’m sure a couple of you will have a field day with that.

  54. That was the same play, run that sealed the deal vs SEA. Go Frank!

  55. Irish Kevin says:

    I think they need a TD to put this away.

  56. Grumpy Guy says:

    Boldin got three extra yards there. Third and one again.

  57. Grumpy Guy says:

    QB sneak? Looks like it’s only six to twelve inches.

  58. Erin says:

    Just take the penalty tree and save the time out

  59. Grumpy Guy says:

    Another knife in the heart there… get a TD here, and its three scores with under ten minutes to go.

  60. Irish Kevin says:

    Thank you Coaching staff for making adjustments on both sides of the ball

  61. 12th man says:

    Huge 3rd down here.

  62. unca_chuck says:

    Damn. That was a disaster.

  63. unca_chuck says:

    Max max max max pressure.

  64. Grumpy Guy says:

    Didn’t get the TD, but 13 points and 8 minutes left is not shabby. The defense has to keep them from making any big plays. Get pressure here with four and we win.

  65. Irish Kevin says:

    2 TD’s to win it…not happening with the Niner D out there!

  66. Erin says:

    Terrible 3rd down call, how do you have such a fuck up after a time out…….

  67. Flavor says:

    Here comes #preventdefense. I mean win

  68. Grumpy Guy says:

    Cox almost had the Pick 6 there.

  69. Grumpy Guy says:

    Bowman again!

  70. Grumpy Guy says:

    Six and a half – make that clock run.

  71. Grumpy Guy says:

    Thirty seconds at the line for a one yard run.

  72. unca_chuck says:

    Love that. Keep 5 on the line.

  73. sandy32koufax says:


  74. Grumpy Guy says:

    There is your bullshit make up call.

  75. Erin says:

    What a bunch of bullshit!

  76. Helmet to helmet? The Roger Goodell NFL vagina just keeps getting wider by the sec.

  77. unca_chuck says:

    That was the game.

  78. Grumpy Guy says:

    Whitner with the killer pick.

  79. Erin says:


  80. unca_chuck says:

    OK. THAT was the game!!!

  81. NoFear49er says:

    Now pull out the four minute drill and pack for Seattle.

  82. sandy32koufax says:

    That’s gotta be the end.

  83. 12th man says:

    Bye bye

  84. Grumpy Guy says:

    Five minutes. Grind it out.

  85. unca_chuck says:

    Fack. I thought they were calling relatively clean shit until this game.

  86. But when you have a prophylactic like Cam Newton throwing the ball, the vagina remains untouched.

  87. 12th man says:

    Shit helmet to helmet call.

  88. Grumpy Guy says:

    Going to have to give it right back unless Kap converts this third down.

  89. Grumpy Guy says:

    Wow. Complete loss of composure when your team was about to get the ball back. Carolina really melted down today.

  90. NoFear49er says:

    You mad bro?

  91. sandy32koufax says:

    CAR players have screwed themselves all day. Dumb PF’s

  92. Grumpy Guy says:

    And now another first down with 3 minutes… Carolina might not get the ball back now.

  93. unca_chuck says:

    The take down was close. The swing was stupid.

  94. Like I said We Got This. Next victim: Sqawks

  95. Grumpy Guy says:

    I would not punt it here, just run into the line.

  96. Grumpy Guy says:

    Okay, same idea, but a little too cute.
