Playoffs Week 3 – Footpocalypse Now

Its finally game day. Seattle fans are icing their throats in preparation to scream their brains out. The talk is over, only the game remains. We’ve all given our reason why, but in the end, it happens on the field. Amazingly, since I’ve been a Niner fan, I remember every playoff run short of the 1957 loss to the Deetroit Lions. I sat in the Candlestick rain for 2 straight championship losses to Brett Favre and the Packers. Reveled in joy when we finally beat the Cowboys in 1994. And threw a lawn chair 400′ down a hillside when Roger Craig fumbled 3-peat away. And died a little when Joe Montana was driven away in an ambulance in the loss to the Giants. These games are usually intense and hard-fought. As of now we are 5-9 in NFC Championships.

Time for number 6…

    We’re 6-8 in the NFC Championship Game btw (6 Super Bowls).
    Today will mark postseason game 30, tied for 2nd alltime with the Cowpatties.
    The Super Bowl will be #31, tied for #1 with the Steelers.

  3. rtfirefly2 says:

    46° high, partly cloudy (no rain forecast in Seattle in winter?!?!!??), winds light and variable

  4. Del Mar Dennis says:

    46° is downright frigid when they’re expecting a high of 66 in Denver today.

    • rtfirefly2 says:

      Yeah, Dennis, supposed to be 66 here today, too, warmest day in months. How the freak did you break *another* bone?

  5. 12th man says:

    This is floating around the net, one of the better Hitler vids:

  6. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Speaking of Denver…who you guys rootin’ for in the AFC Championship Game?
    Tom Brady or Peyton Manning? I’m in QB heaven with that matchup. I can’t go wrong with either of those two. So we’ll either have the distinct pleasure of losing to the future president of the United States or to a guy that we were better off keeping Alex Smith over. Pick your poison.

    Enjoy today’s W > Seattle while it lasts. We got hell to pay in two weeks. 😛

  7. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Goddammit! Hitler and Chuck’s spam filter ate my last comment. I thought it to be one of my better ones. I don’t get paid on commission. Me and Rumpel can only spin so much gold.

  8. twinfan1 says:

    I already posted 24-21 Niners but I’ll admit that it’s a hope as much a prediction. We’re having my good fortune broccoli rabe tonight to go with a traditional Sunday Roast Chicken dinner which we’ll have at halftime.For dessert,if you do a litle baking, I made an Apricot Upside Down Cake- forget about pineapple, this is scrumptious. Promise some to CK if he has a big game and he’ll throw 5 TDs.Enjoy the game- what are y’all eating?

  9. 12th man says:

    The Squawks 12th man:

  10. 12th man says:

    Never tried to copy a facebook pic before but I hope it works.

  11. barleyfreak says:

    Chuck, I think your spam filter ate my post on the last thread. No biggee. It was my prediction for the DEN-NE game. But honestly, who the f*ck cares?

    For the record, 34-27, Denver

  12. barleyfreak says:

    The league wants (the refs) to keep the game in check early,

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap2000000314924/article/nfl-asks-officials-to-set-tone-early-for-ninersseahawks

    I swear I hope that is the last time I think about the refs today.

  13. snarkk says:

    Pats 33, Broncs 27….

  14. NoFear49er says:

    DEN 24 NE 20

  15. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Pats TE, Matthew Mulligan. I’m guessing he’s Irish-Catholic. Big limb there.

  16. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Peyton Manning and DEN just threw a very successful screen pass.
    What the hell is that?

  17. Del Mar Dennis says:

    The first four drives engineered by Brady and Manning has only produced 3 pts.
    What a couple of bums.

  18. Del Mar Dennis says:

    First DEN DB went for the pick. The next for the strip. Swing and a miss on both.
    Sounds like one my Daily Doubles.

  19. Del Mar Dennis says:

    That last Manning completion to Welker was a complete dead duck.
    That’s why I feed my mallards on a daily basis. Somebody’s got to keep those birds healthy.

  20. NoFear49er says:

    Worked both times. Two in a row of those plays that “never work.”

  21. Del Mar Dennis says:

    And Peyton just audibled out of that 3rd and 10 to a RUN that results in a DEN TD.

    This just in: Peyton is the Peking Duck…he tastes so good.

  22. Grumpy Guy says:

    11 yards rushing for the pats in the first half. Hard to win like that.

  23. Del Mar Dennis says:

    DEN calls TO on 4th and 1 and kicks the FG?
    If Brady and the Pats score on the ensuing drive…Fox should be inflicted with his next heart attack.

    • Del Mar Dennis says:

      Didn’t happen this time, but poor time management eventually comes back and kicks you squarely in the ass.

      Jim Harbaugh, are you listening?

  24. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Peyton Manning just had to burn a TO with 9:59 left to go in the 3rd quarter.
    What the fuck is he thinking? Manning think he’s running the Niners’ offense?
    I wish. 😛

  25. NoFear49er says:

    The Mannings are killing NE with first downs and TOP.

  26. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Peyton Manning’s two best decisions today were audibles that had Denver RUN the ball.

    What a one-dimensional bastard.

  27. rtfirefly says:

    “Turn out the lights…”

  28. NoFear49er says:

    Who does Belichick think he is? Riverboat Bill?

    • Del Mar Dennis says:

      I don’t fault the 4th dn decision one iota. I give 100% credit to Denver’s D on that play. Wait? Denver has a defense?

  29. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Now DEN just had to burn their second TO with 2:30 left in the 3rd quarter.
    I guess I’m a little slow on the uptake on how teams should covet their time outs?
    OK. I’ll see you guys in two weeks. It’s just a matter of time…OUT!!!

  30. Irish Kevin says:

    From Ailene Voison of the sac bee, Harbaugh is a terrible loser. Losing to Carroll would be worse than losing to his brother

    Sac Bee sports writers and the SEATTLE-AREA MEDIA predictions

    http://www.sacbee.com/2014/01/18/6083945/predictions-whom-do-you-like.html

  32. Del Mar Dennis says:

    23-3 Broncos. Should have been 27, horses in front…

  33. Irish Kevin says:

    Seattle sports writers, all but one thinks the Hawks are going to win, where as the bee sports writers are split 3 for the Niners and 2 for the hawks

  34. 12th man says:

    Hey Phil you still with us? Hope the coconut internet keeps working well today!

  35. Del Mar Dennis says:

    I just returned from my local neighborhood liquor store,vodka bottle firmly in hand.
    Every patron in the store, including the owner, was decked out in red and gold.
    I kid you not. Me? I was decked out in my Peyton Manning jersey.
    I kid because I care.

  36. shaman138 says:

    Denver Donks just ensured themselves another SB loss. Regardless of who wins this upcoming game, I will thoroughly enjoy watching Denny’s favorite team get throttled by the NFC champ.

  37. Del Mar Dennis says:

    So I’m asking. Better off if we lose today, or in two weeks when we succumb to Manning?
    Lord help you all. Did we sign…

  38. We got a better 12th man lol

  39. Bozo says:

    Chuck has a spam filter? Hi, I’m a Nigerian Clown Prince that needs money and a 9er win.
    Pluck the Seachickies. Ayeeeeee, fire this sucker up.

  40. NoFear49er says:

    This is the game I was hoping for. Make the best of the opportunity gents. Leave no doubt! Crush the ‘Hawks.

  41. NoFear49er says:

    Not many patriots in the game today. Too bad.

  42. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Where the fuck is everyone? Just moments until kickoff and Chuck’s regular Niner bloggers can’t be seen today, no hide nor hair. Hide nor hair? I don’t think you guys want me to put my spelling to good use and further elaborate on Dr. Jekyll’s other half and Bugs Bunny?

    Didn’t think so.

    Go Niners!

  43. rtfirefly says:

    Good, it’s Ann. Had it been “Seattle’s own Nancy Wilson”, I might have had a twinge of sympathy for the Seaturkeys before we throttle them.

  44. 12th man says:

    Niners!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  45. 12th man says:

    wow

  46. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Not a bad start…

  47. 12th man says:

    please get a TD

  48. 12th man says:

    3 better than nothing but wasted an opportunity there.

  49. Strip sack by Aldon

  50. Irish Kevin says:

    What a horrible stat 1 for 22, and now they have given Seattle D more confidence by not scoring a TD there!!

  51. E Davis sez VD didnt old is block long enuf

  52. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Son of a motherless fuck. If momentum could ever change after a first play that results in a defensive turnover inside your opponents red zone, well, we just did it.

    FGs don’t win NFC Championships Games.

  53. 12th man says:

    good stop 3 and out

  54. Irish Kevin says:

    Good things happen when Kaep moves around

  55. 12th man says:

    great ST play Lee and Osgood. I smell a safety.

    • Del Mar Dennis says:

      Smell all you want. All that we cooked up was a 5-yd off-sides penalty that led to a SEA first dn.

  56. 12th man says:

    another phantom penalty on whitner WTF

  57. 12th man says:

    big 3rd down here

  58. 12th man says:

    yesssss

  59. 12th man says:

    huge sack by Bowman

  60. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Jesus H. Mother Fucking Christ. Roger Goodell continues to further stretch the vagina of what’s left’s of today’s NFL. Personal foul? The only way it’s going to change is if fans like you and I stop watching.

    I’m this close. What say you?

  61. Irish Kevin says:

    Okay the Niners need to score!!

  62. 12th man says:

    LMJ muffed the punt and is hurt. Niners recovered

  63. Irish Kevin says:

    The defenses have come to play, what you say 49er offense??

  64. Way D is playing 3 points are huge. Like that we are running Kap and using McD + Blitzing. Unpredictable

  65. Del Mar Dennis says:

    We recovered that fucking muff by LMG?
    We don’t deserve it, and he doesn’t deserve health care regardless of his symptoms.

    Jesus H. Fucking Christ! Catch the goddamn ball!

  66. rtfirefly says:

    That guy in the lime green suit is reason enough to hate Seahawks fans.

  67. 12th man says:

    PI on Sherman

  68. rtfirefly says:

    Finally called the cheaters.

  69. 12th man says:

    Might be time to stop running up the gut on first down for a while.

  70. 12th man says:

    Kaepernick for 58 yds!

  71. rtfirefly says:

    Too close to reverse.

  72. sandy32koufax says:

    That’s no TD…prolly give it to em based “conclusive evidence” but still…no score there

  73. 12th man says:

    close call

  74. Grumpy Guy says:

    10-0 is big if it holds up.

  75. 12th man says:

    shit

  76. 12th man says:

    qb sneak

  77. 12th man says:

    TD Boobie same play

  78. 12th man says:

    10-0 is huge after all Grump!

  79. 12th man says:

    Iupati still down, that’s a killer if he can’t go.

  80. rtfirefly says:

    First LMJ, now Iaputi. Scheise.

  81. Grumpy Guy says:

    Well, got it on the second try.

    Hate to see Iupati out.

    The defense has to keep the pressure on. A ten point lead is nice but you cannot expect to score many points against these guys.

  82. Irish Kevin says:

    Not good,

  83. sandy32koufax says:

    He is fucked up, drugs and he plays again but not in XLVIII

  84. 12th man says:

    Lets go D!

  85. STFU Seattle. This OUR party

  86. 12th man says:

    Witner you idiot

  87. Irish Kevin says:

    That was awfull

  88. Irish Kevin says:

    Hold them to a FG

  89. sandy32koufax says:

    Aikman has it right, Bowman is playing big time today

    • Del Mar Dennis says:

      I’ve been saying it all year…Bowman’s better then Willis.
      Not a bad thing. Win-win for our D.

      • 12th man says:

        Willis has a groin all year but Bowman is playing as good as Willis ever has. Don’t know which is better but what a 1-2 punch.

  90. Irish Kevin says:

    Yes!!

  91. 12th man says:

    great D!

  92. 12th man says:

    LMJ is back.

  93. rtfirefly says:

    Kappy over 100 yards rushing 5:47 1st half! LOL

  94. rtfirefly says:

    Boldin’s dropped two now.

  95. 12th man says:

    running the same plays.

  96. 12th man says:

    3 and out.
