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…

    TERRIBLE drop by Boldin set the tone; gave it right back with time for the Seahawks to go to work.

  2. Grumpy Guy says:

    So far its all Kappy – Boldin can’t catch, Crabs and VD have done nothing, and Gore cannot really get going. Defense had better step up.

  4. 12th man says:

    sweet, 3rd and 8, need a stop.

  5. Irish Kevin says:


  6. 12th man says:

    great D stop

  7. 12th man says:

    Stupid fucking Rodgers for a push.

    • sandy32koufax says:

      Nah, that’s a shit call

      • 12th man says:

        I agree but Rodgers did give him an extra shove. No harm this time.

      • Del Mar Dennis says:

        Extra shove? Are you fucking kidding me? That’s beyond a shit call, It’s totally outrageous and what, unfortunately, has become the norm.
        You’re going to continually watch this product set forth by the NFL every Sunday?

        I can’t. I love the NFL. I love football. But what I’m watching today on Sunday’s,
        sure in the hell ain’t football.

  8. sandy32koufax says:

    So far, three shit calls by the refs…how many more do we see or is Goodell gonna put the hammer down and shut those bad calls down?

  9. 12th man says:

    Niners look better in this close game, one mental lapse by Whitner away from a shut out so far.

  10. Alleykat says:

    fuck these refs !!!!
    Niners bringing the heat and takin out the Shehawks 12th fans!!!🍻🍻🍻🍻🍻drink up boys!!

  11. Grumpy Guy says:

    Rogers pushed him with the ball in the air after a tip, and the receiver still a yard inbounds.

    If this is the NFL’s idea of an “Allstar” officiating crew, I’d hate to see their worst. They’ve been total shit.

  12. Bozo says:

    With the Refs, does that mean Seattle has a 13th man now.

  13. WTF was the penalty on Rogers? That pussified shove on Baldwin?

    Then how did we get the ball back?

  14. Irish Kevin says:

    Just play the game, F the refs, the Niners are winning this game! More of the same in the second half and the bad calls will mean nothing!!

  15. 12th man says:

    run game was bad with Iupati, going backwards without him.

  16. 12th man says:

    great catch by Crabs, very brave.

  17. Irish Kevin says:

    The Niners need to score here, even 3 points would be good!!

  18. 12th man says:

    Lee with a shitty punt..

  19. Irish Kevin says:

    Sloppy play

  20. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Anyone bet the UNDER? Good for you.

    But I goddamn guar-an-tee it. Bet the OVER when we play Manning in the SB.
    Peyton will have put up 28 pts. before we’ve even blinked before half.

  21. 12th man says:

    Lets answer back!

  22. 12th man says:

    better, run of the edge on 1st down.

  23. Irish Kevin says:

    That is why it was important for us to score the first time

  24. 12th man says:


  25. 12th man says:


  26. 12th man says:

    Lucky shit, go Goodwin!

  27. 12th man says:

    TD Boldin! Kap was tremendous.

  28. rtfirefly says:

    That TD was all Kilgore!

  29. 12th man says:


  30. Grumpy Guy says:

    Kaepernick is the only reason we are still in this game, let alone winning.

    And just like that, ST shits the bed.

  31. 12th man says:


  32. 12th man says:

    Good stop by the D again

  33. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Can’t speak for the rest of you, but this game is downright compelling, n’est-ce pas?

  34. 12th man says:

    Answer back again Kap.

  35. Grumpy Guy says:

    Kappy is going to have to pull at least one, and maybe two, more TDs out of his ass to win today.

    Very modest contributions by his supporting cast on offense.

  36. spanky says:


  37. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Shit. There’s almost 19 mins. still left to go. That calls for another drink.
    Not that I need a reason…

  38. 12th man says:

    Ran into the kicker, dumb.

  39. 12th man says:

    13 th man strikes again

  40. 12th man says:

    grounding again

  41. 12th man says:

    big risk for Squawks

  42. 12th man says:

    kicker didn’t expect to be called upon to hit a 53 yrd try.

  43. 12th man says:

    Aldon Smith jumped again

  44. 12th man says:

    Gutsy call for 4th and 7

  45. Irish Kevin says:

    How do you go from 3rd and 22 to a TD??

  46. 12th man says:


  47. 12th man says:

    D has to bail them out now. tough spot

  48. Irish Kevin says:

    Why do they have so much trouble getting plays in?? That will be the Niners down fall!

  49. Grumpy Guy says:

    I am really getting tired of Anthony Davis’s problems at tackle.

  50. 12th man says:

    huge 3rd down

  51. 12th man says:

    niner ball

  52. sandy32koufax says:

    OUCH on Bowman’s knee

  53. 12th man says:

    more bullshit calls and Bowman is hurt to boot.

    • sandy32koufax says:

      Good thing Goodell made it plain that the refs weren’t going to decide this game…clusterfuck refs.

  54. Grumpy Guy says:

    Another total fucked up officiating call. And we lose Bowman.

    All Stars my ass.

    • sandy32koufax says:

      Bowman tore some shit on that play. I ruined my knee that way too, when you couldn’t just fix an ACL or MCL tear. Hope dude is alright.

  55. 12th man says:

    this could be the game

  56. Irish Kevin says:

    Awfull call,

  57. 12th man says:

    well how about that.

  58. sandy32koufax says:

    Fucking Keystone Kops football

  59. Irish Kevin says:

    Fall on it!!!!

  60. 12th man says:

    Need a time consuming march down the field with a TD now.

  61. 12th man says:

    Kap underthrew it a mile

  62. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Jesus H. Fucking Christ…

  63. 12th man says:

    One more time D

  64. sandy32koufax says:

    Lynch is a fucking stud

  65. 12th man says:

    Refs have made it tough today

  66. Irish Kevin says:

    This is not good, clock becoming an issue

  67. 12th man says:

    Here it is

  68. 12th man says:

    a block would be nice

  69. Irish Kevin says:

    A TD to win this, this is doable!

  70. 12th man says:

    Must score this drive or time kills them.

  71. 12th man says:

    Kap has to make it happen cause the rest of the O has not done a fat lot today.

  72. 12th man says:

    have to go for it

  73. sandy32koufax says:

    Gotta go for it on fourth and two…two minute warning. niners convert and drive stays alive

  74. 12th man says:

    4th and 2

  75. Irish Kevin says:

    Gun shy, need to be throwing it down the field

  76. 12th man says:

    Thank god for Frank and Kap

  77. 12th man says:

    Crabs! big play

  78. 12th man says:


  79. sandy32koufax says:

    Thanks for hosting the party, Chuck.

  80. Good season guys. Dang

  81. Nipper says:


  82. Irish Kevin says:


  83. Kap not quite good enough today

  84. Grumpy Guy says:

    When you rely on one guy to be your offense, with very lackluster games from everyone else, eventually he is going to have to try to do too much.

    And that’s your 2013 season.

    Our O-line is not as good as their press clippings. VD is not a real traditional Tight End, and our WRs can catch but cannot run away from anyone. And Gore behind this line cannot generate consistent yards against a good defense. And that’s all she wrote.

  85. sandy32koufax says:

    Fuck me but Sherman’s an dick

  86. Alleykat says:

    Fuck Shehawks and their 12th fans and their 13th fans the Fucking Refs!!!!!
    eat shit Sherman,Carroll and your whole fucking Org!!!
    And I pray to god Denver and Manning fuck you over in the SB!!!

  87. Spitblood says:

    Horrible play call at the end by Greg Roman. The 49ers were driving with throws over the middle and Kendal Hunter in the game getting the edge (finally Roman dumped Gore and went to Hunter). They had success with Kaep running. They had 33 seconds and all their timeouts. It’s just like the Super Bowl. You don’t throw a fade to win the Super Bowl. And you don’t throw it to Crabtree. Did they not learn from the Super Bowl? You’d think they’d have something else designed for the end zone knowing sooner or later they’d have to score with seconds left to win the game. Bill Walsh designed the catch with the first option to Freddy, then the second option to Dwight or a throw away. With Greg Roman, in big games, you get a fade. Horrid. Not a Greg Roman fan. And yes, Kaep turned the ball over three times in crunch time, but ultimately you’re judged on your last drive. And that last drive the 49ers had the Seahawks on their heals – until Greg called a fade in the back of the endzone…… again. Greg Roman sucks.

  88. Got a little greedy there at the end- long pass to Crab covered by Sherman. Kap to Crab is not money at end of big games. We had time, should have gotten closer and tried something shorter. The bad taste will linger on for the O…

  89. Spitblood says:

    Greg Roman must go. A fade? Again? I still can’t get over it. When Frank Gore goes, and it’s time, Greg Roman must go as well. Go Broncos.

  90. Nipper says:

    Sea birds will crash and burn in NY.

  91. sandy32koufax says:

    A tuxedo? Sherman is too ghetto to be fabulous

  92. NoFear49er says:

    How many game-changing bad calls can a team survive in the playoffs.

    Oh and CK7 is a fucking idiot.

    • 12th man says:

      The 49ers offense was almost completely limited to quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who accounted for all but 25 of their 308 yards.

      • NoFear49er says:

        Serioulsy? He had a QB Rating of like 56 and accounted for most of the bad plays and playing, too. Not the least of which was the stake in the heart to end the game, which he thinks was a great play that he’d make again. … a fucking idiot.

      • 12th man says:

        Yes seriously, the kid accounted for almost all the plays. As Grumpy said earlier, if the O is just 1 (Kap) player it makes it hard to win every play. You choose to look at 3 TO and miss everything else that kid did today and that is against the best D in football.

        Gore got 14 on 11, you can talk about blocking etc and some of that is fair but so is the absolute lack of production from the RB himself.

        Kap is learning no question but it’s bullshit to lay the loss on him. Even the fade to Crab, not my fav play, was a couple of inches from winning the game.

  93. twinfan1 says:

    More than anything I feel terrible for Bowman. He might have saved the playoffs with the play against Atlanta and then the play that the dumb rule negated might have saved this one.. And to come out of it wth a serious injury just sucks. I just hope that he can overcome the injury.

    • NoFear49er says:

      That was one of the worst calls and ridiculous that it can’t be reversed on review. I think the bad call on roughing the kicker hurt us worse though since the game seemed to turn on it.

    • Irish Kevin says:

      Yes to give his all and then to have something like that happen, very sad.

  94. Irish Kevin says:

    Well, Kaep is a 1 1/2 years into his NFL career, lots of learning still to be done. IMO ALL CALLS IN A Championship game should be reviewable. There is just too many bodies in a pile to see everything clearly. Time to wrap it it up, not much else to say. NEXT YEAR WILL BE EPIC WITH THESE TWO TEAMS.

  95. unca_chuck says:

    Roman HAS to go. We had the game I the bag, and fucked it up. Some horrible calls, but Kappy played his part in fucking this up. 3 turnovers ain’t gonna help. Even with that, they got 3 points off them.

    Again roman HAS to go. We have too many weapons to be this conservative on offense.

    • 12th man says:

      Play calls for the WR are abysmal. Almost never see a WR running across the field catching in stride, they always have their backs to the endzone stopped dead when they catch and then have to make a move, consequently YAC is piss poor. The WR play designs have no flair. They are not designing to get them open, just to get them into a zone.

  96. Spitblood says:

    You don’t blame the refs…. ever. That’s for losers. There’s nothing wrong with our D. The offense needs serious work. I’ve been saying it all along – Frank Gore is done and Kaep needs to learn to be a pocket passer, Greg Roman sucks and Trent Baalke should have drafted Alshon Jeffrey. I mean, NoFear, if you want to blame the refs and claim we’re snake bit, think of all the fumbles in this game the 49ers recovered. Bottom line is our O just isn’t good enough, and we knew it all along.

    The offseason our team is going to have some turnover. And btw, did Andy Lee just fall off the face of the earth with his punts or is it just me? For me, the 49ers need to replace Andy Lee, Frank Gore, Carlos Rogers and add some receivers. I think Marcus Lattimore was a huge mistake to draft. He could set the team back.

    That said, don’t blame the refs. It’s poor form. The Bowman fumble recovery didn’t hurt us because they fumbled on the next play. The guy hitting Andy Lee’s plant leg was a bad call, and there were others like the Carlos Rogers’ unsportsmanlike, but that’s all apart of the game. We lost because our offense isn’t good enough. Now we get to retool our offense while losing players like Iupati and maybe even Aldon. Oh well. Go Niners.

    • NoFear49er says:

      It’s bad form for the players and coaches involved, not for the people that watch the game and make judgments. The refs get an F on this game and that plays a part.

      By the way, I don’t blame the loss on them even though they played a big enough part. They were an obstacle to overcome and we didn’t. Doesn’t mean we might not have the win without the obstacle to overcome.

      The officials have an important job to do to run the game. When they fuck it up the game gets fucked up. And I complain having to watch and be on the losing end of a fucked up game.

      You grind on the play calling although we obviously could have won despite all that had CK7 thrown the last ball to Boldin or VD or Patton. So neither the refs nor Roman’s plays killed us.

  97. unca_chuck says:

    Lee pinned Sea at the 1 yard line. spitty, just shut the fuck up. This team CAN run and throw. Roman has to go, thought. I’ve completely had it with this shitty passing offense. With the players we have, and the time Kappy had, we should be doing much more with the passing game.

  98. Grumpy Guy says:

    Gore tonight:

    First half: 7 carries, 12 yards.

    Second half: 4 carries, 2 yards.

    This team cannot win with that. Just not going to happen.

    Or with multiple drops by Boldin, Crabs shying away from contact and VD disappearing most of the game.

    Lynch finished 109 yards on 22 carries. We got pressure on Wilson but he got a couple of big plays by scrambling and picking on Rogers and our safeties.

    So Kappy had to run and try to make plays that weren’t really there. The results of that were entirely predictable.

    And that’s your ballgame.
