Game Day! But it ain’t us (boo)

I swore I just heard this: “Live from Head Lice stadium . . .” I’m forgoing the pre-game hype, but thought I’d throw up a thread anyway. The longer this down time goes on, the more I think the Peytons have a chance to win. I’ll say 27-20 Denver.

  1. Nipper says:

    I’m neutral but I expect Seattle to eke out a win. Still if Peyton gets hot then Denver can win in a rout. Seattle should keep it close. All bets are off with turnovers.

  2. snarkk says:

    31-17-cryin in their coffee.
    Denver, Seattle, 12th Man…

  3. Alleykat says:

    Screw Shehawks…Manning will dissect their secondary and leave mouthpiece Sherman squealing in the end!
    Wilson will keel over on the big stage as Denver romps 34-13!!!

  4. Alleykat says:

    Well that’s one hell of a start Fuckin A .
    Didn’t have a safety on the 1st play of the game on my bets.

  5. unca_chuck says:

    Wonder what the odds were for a safety on the 1st play,

  6. unca_chuck says:

    Ex Niner makes his presence felt.

  7. unca_chuck says:

    Denver not impressing so far. 2 doinks for 6 yards.

  8. unca_chuck says:

    0 first downs, a safety and a pick. Manning not feeling it.

  9. unca_chuck says:

    Denver keeps them out of the end zone and its not too out of hand.

  10. Alleykat says:

    Manning choking again!!!
    Comment Denny?

  11. Alleykat says:

    Hey Buck Fuck.. Manning’s doing just what he needs to do after the pick 6 driving again? he needed the Drive for 6 when it was 15 zip, You freakin Moron !!!

  12. Saw 1st half on TV. What a bore. Seattle D too too…Kap played better n Manning. PI on EZ called 4 SEA? Niners get no breaks. Does JH piss people off so much? Guess so…Onion may have a point there…

  13. Spitblood says:

    That was the worst first half by a qb in the Super Bowl I’ve ever seen. Peyton Manning cannot handle pressure, both psychological and in his face. People who say Manning is the best ever is completely lost about great qb play. I wouldn’t even put Manning in my top ten.

  14. Grumpy Guy says:

    And THAT’S why we haven’t signed Peyton Manning yet.

    Sorry, Dennis.

    We are going to be hearing shit from Seattle for the next year. Bleah.

  15. Flavor says:

    I came here to read about Dennis lamenting Manning’s shit performance. Maybe he too sauced to post anything. Or banned. Who knows. What a joke, Manning’s legacy is ruined with this game. He better have a shit load of “Omaha’s” hiding away in the 2nd half, lol

  16. Alleykat says:

    Denver is a joke!!!
    Seattle Takes it to the house to start the second half,Seattle is 3 steps ahead all night in physical play and speed!!
    Shit the 49ers would of kicked Denver and Manning’s ass as well.

  17. philippinefan says:

    29-0. Well well well. Real Super Bowl was the NFC title game. This is shit

  18. twinfan1 says:

    Manning 57.4 QB rating.

  19. unca_chuck says:

    I guess Kappy should get props for getting 17 . . .

  20. unca_chuck says:

    This sorta reminds me of Montana/Marino and Marino got all the hype for 2 weeks.

  21. philippinefan says:

    Here come the hawks. Not bothering w/ tv

  22. Spitblood says:

    Denver is getting taken to the woodshed. Fox, Elway, Del Rio, Manning are getting embarrassed. Nothing else to say. Pete Carroll is going to be tough to beat for the next five years. Jim Harbaugh better figure out a passing attack. Ricardo Lockette caught a ball in the Super Bowl. Jim Schembechler couldn’t use him. Frank Gore is done. Mike Iupati is done. Greg Roman is done. You need to gear up and score points to beat the Seahawks. Can’t do that with Gore, Iupati and Roman. Woodshed.

  23. Nipper says:

    Puppy Bowl has more merit today. At least they’re cute.

  24. philippinefan says:

    Dick Sherman injured awwwwwww

  25. 12th man says:

    Niners would have beaten Denver too but it would have been 9-8 with a last second field goal for the win.

  26. philippinefan says:

    Yeah when Sea gets rolling they’re tough. Plenty of time left fer a nice even 50

  27. Alleykat says:

    Just wish the 49ers under Joe and the boys hold on to the all-time Smack down in a SB win with their 55-10 pasting of oh yeah Denver!!!!!
    Hey Denver, how does 2 SB blowouts feel by so far 98-18??

  28. Spitblood says:

    Hey Jim Harbaugh, Colin Kaepernick, Trent Baalke and Micheal Crabtree….. Pete Carroll, Richard Sherman, Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch are Super Bowl Champions….. and you’re not. Now go deal with that for the next five years. Bo Schembechler never won anything either. Change the offensive philosophy now, or be a laughing stock.

    • philippinefan says:

      Carroll has a better O philosophy, more adaptable, smarter, less predictable, better scheme, uses more weapons (Ricardo Lockette?) and he may be a freak but evidently not a control freak

    • Grumpy Guy says:

      Seattle also has a stronger secondary, and a very good defensive line. In a passing league, that matters more than our outstanding linebackers and very good defensive line.

  29. NJ49er says:

    Can’t go wrong having a deep DLine rotation either.
    Manning was holding and patting the baby, couldn’t get any rhythm going.
    Denver WRs were looking for a place to fall down too.

    Pure chickensh!t performance from Denver.
    They finally face a real Defense and folded like a cheap suit.

    We have Draft Picks and, Kaeps’ price tag just went down.
    Wilson won his SB. Not so much for Kaep.

  30. Flavor says:

    I hate Denver so them getting blown out is some sweet satisfaction for me. And all those pre game side stories softened up the Hawks enough for me to not want Mike Tyson to eat their children.
    And knowing that Denny’s doing a slow burn about his fake hero, without the ability to post his usual inane “did we sign Peyton Manning yet?” Is just enough to make this Seahawk SB tolerable.
    So I’ll end this with this:
    “Did we sign Peyton Manning yet?”
    Thank God, no…
    And btw, props to Chuck who said Sea would blow out Denver 2 weeks ago. I didn’t bet the gm but wish I’d listened to him!

    • NJ49er says:

      Now, all that Cap money Peyton has attached to his backside, precludes them from doing much of anything to improve a piss poor Defense.

      Be careful what you wish for, when you tie huge Contracts to QBs, at the expense of Team needs.

  31. Flavor says:

    I almost wish Denny’s racist ass was still around so we could read his drivel. I actually like him a lot– parts of him anyway. Denny, me and Loo pirated a dead blog at the Chron about 5 years ago and went hog wild with our horse racing posts. None of you saw or read that but for 2 weeks it was as much fun as you could have on a pirated Chron blog, talking about horses, just 3 dudes.
    Sounds kinda gay now the way I wrote it….
    But that’s my soft spot for Denny. He went crazy after that. Hey, it happens. Hitch yourself to Peyton Manning’s star, you’re bound to be let down in the end. He’s not a closer. He’ll fill up a stat sheet like a mother fucker.
    But not when it counts.
    Omaha! Omaha!
    If only there were one last Omaha.
    Not tonight. Congrats Seahawks, you handed Manning his ass and then some. I can get passed my dislike of Sherman and Carroll to honor their domination.
    Three inches further, it woulda been us….

    • Flavor says:

      And auto correct fucked me again….”past”
      Future note to my iPhone keyboard: I am never trying to type “ducking”. Ever. And there is no “shot” in my text world. It’s always, 100%, “shit”.
      Please make a note of it…..

    • NJ49er says:

      Pretty much Flavor –
      Kaep has to get over his need to reward Crabtree in a big spot.
      Take what the Defense gives you.
      Utilize all the guys, instead of focusing on the first option.

      All things considered, we have no reason to be embarrassed.
      We’ve got Draft Picks, and, a better Cap situation than Seattle has.

    • philippinefan says:

      Anybody remember “Omaha” by Moby Grape? I doubt it but nice rocker…way back

  32. unca_chuck says:

    No, but I do like “Get out of Denver, baby” by Bob Seger.

    7/120 is pretty crippling, but we’ll see. I’m hoping they can come up with something shorter like 4/64 or even 4/72. 7 years you can backload, but sheist, that’s a ton of dough. I want them to sign him but that’s huge.

    • NJ49er says:

      Chuck cheaper is better IMO too.
      I’m assuming they want him in SF for the long haul.

      I don’t think it would be a stretch to extend the years, show a heavier Contract value and, spread that money out.
      The key is, don’t over-guarantee.
      Wilson just won the SB, whatever happens there in Seattle, his number is automatically higher now because of it.
      Kaep hasn’t done anything monumental yet.
      His Agent shouldn’t be asking for the stars at this point.
      If the deal isn’t friendly this year, they have time to wait him out.

      • NJ49er says:

        Cutlers’ deal isn’t too shabby in terms of length and guaranteed money.
        I could see Kaep getting something close to that.
        Cutler got $126.75 with about 5.5 guaranteed/yr. He is up for FA in 2021.
        If they can keep Kaep between 6-8M/yr, that’s a pretty friendly number IMO.

        Kaep is also young enough to erase the final year of his current deal, add it in, spread it perhaps to 8yrs?

    • philippinefan says:

      Yeah nice! Going to download it later = coconut internet fading

    • NJ49er says:

      Matt Stafford’s deal has Detroit by the short hairs.
      He’s getting above $13.8M/yr guaranteed.
      Keeping the Cap hit low is the caveat.
      Money up front, if they can afford it, also contributes favorably.

      Marathe and Baalke have done a very good job in that regard.

      Young QB, longer years makes sense, IF they see him as the future, which I’ll assume they do.
      8/120 puts him at an even 15M/yr.
      Let’s see how they massage the Cap, at the most expensive position on the field.

  33. Alleykat says:

    Peyton Manning now holds the most playoff losses all-time 13!!
    Guess his Bust on Football’s Mt Rushmore is nothing but “Gravel & Dust” As “The Man,Joe Montana”Sculpture will “Always” Outshine any QB in the game!!!!!

  34. philippinefan says:

    We have a loooog off-season so I’m going to track all these and boil ’em down so we can see who is the Real Pigskin Prognosticator:

    philippinefan says: How much should CK be paid per year? How long a deal? What other continencies are there? Guaranteed money? Let’s do a wild ass guess-a-thon on “How much per year / how long a deal?”
    Phil sez: 16M/yr for 6 years 50M guaranteed. Okay collecting and saving all these until the truth be told

    12th man says: I have no idea what the BS part of the contract would look like because they make it up to look like it is a block buster contract for publicity purposes. The real part of it I would guess 4/16 with performance escalators (winning SB?) built in all guaranteed.

    unca_chuck says: 4/64 sounds about right. I’m not exactly clear on how they defer or spread out the cap hit, but I’d see like $35 mill guaranteed. I guess the length of the contract can lessen the year-to-year hit.
    7/120 is pretty crippling, but we’ll see. I’m hoping they can come up with something shorter like 4/64 or even 4/72. 7 years you can backload, but sheist, that’s a ton of dough. I want them to sign him but that’s huge.

    NJ49er says: I’d be in the 7/120 range Phil.
    60-65 Guaranteed.
    Maybe sweeten it with incentives, pay 15-20 up front?
    He’s also young enough to consider an 8th year perhaps.
    You can inflate the top number, just keep the guaranteed number manageable.

  35. unca_chuck says:

    I just think they don’t go all-in (7 years) at this stage. Rodgers did the same kind of thing. Took a midrange deal and parlayed that into a bigger extension later.

    • NJ49er says:

      It’s plausible to do that too Chuck, all a matter of how they view Kaep long-term.
      Any deal can be reworked.

      I’m simply going out on the limb of ‘longer years’.
      What matters is, the Cap hit/yr.

      Be it 4/5 or 7/8, it’s all about managing the Cap hit and, leaving some working capital, for the other pieces that need to be retained or purchased.

      Baalke and Marathe are the experts of course, I’m just trying to guess what they might have in mind.

  36. NoFear49er says:

    If I didn’t know better I’d say the fix was in on this one. How do you get to the big game and completely give up without a fight from the first tick?

    I’ll give you Manning detractors your day he didn’t do shit either but I’ll be damned if I saw one Bronco receiver do shit to get open or get any yards after a rare catch or a single o-lineman do any pass protection worthy of a pro football player or a Bronco defensive player make any effort to tackle anyone not named Lynch. Across the board embarrassing for a pro football team. Absolutely the worst, the absolute worst, effort I’ve ever seen in a Super Bowl game. Congratulations Denver Mannings, you suck!

    I’ll even give it up to the Seahawks’ defense. They came to play and were fast and deliberate and all over the field, eleven men to the ball. Their offense, not so much. The beast was a pup. The passing game mediocre at best. Their main offense was what Denver handed them in screw ups.

    There is nothing that can be taken from this game and used as a legitimate stat for anything meaningful except what happens when one team quits. I feel sorry for everyone who attended and watched from home and think we all deserve an apology from his majesty for putting on such a sham.

    • NJ49er says:

      Denver heard footsteps all night NoFear49er.
      Agreed. Pathetic.

      I’ve always had an opinion regarding the Vegas factor.
      Someones family was being held in a shipping container at the Docks of Port Newark.
      My guess?
      It was a Manning family member tonight.

      As stated during the lead up to this game, I had zero interest one way or the other.
      Hats off to Seattle.
      They’ve proven once again, a good Defense negates a good, (over-hyped) Offense.

      • NoFear49er says:

        Well, those are the famous last words from guys like Buddy Ryan, too.

      • NJ49er says:

        Can’t argue with that NoFear49er.
        I’ve always enjoyed a good, swarming, no nonsense Defense.

      • NoFear49er says:

        Me too, but the WCO killed the fearsome 46 D. Or at least put the first arrow through its heart.

      • NJ49er says:

        This is why we have all the debate over the Harbaugh/Roman Offense.
        For me, a solid running game and Defense never go out of style.
        Seattle took away everything Denver made it’s living on. Quick hitters.

        I attribute that to excellent Press Coverage.
        We’d do ourselves a favor looking to improve that piece of our game on D.

    • NJ49er says:

      Just glad I made the decision to take Sunday pay, over beer goggles and boring football tonight 😀

      • NoFear49er says:

        And you were so right! I’ll I got now is heartburn.

      • NJ49er says:

        A couple of Tums will cure that NoFear49er.
        Look at the bright side.

        We have work to do in SF to eclipse Seattle now for sure.
        We have Picks, we Draft in front of them and, they have to pay a SB winning QB, with even more Cap concerns than we have.

        Seeing what the AFC brought to the table tonight only makes me smile.
        Our D likely would’ve squashed them too.

    • NJ49er says:

      Even more hilarious, was the tidbit about John Fox being in line for a $1M bonus and, having his Agents present to negotiate a long term extension following the game, had he won.

      LMFAO at that plan.

      I’m guessing they were all under the table with Elway, drowning their sorrows at half time.

      • NoFear49er says:

        Well now Elway, he deserves to watch his team go down in flames. Always the big shot taking credit away from some more deserving, like the running back.

      • NJ49er says:

        Yep, made the deal with the Devil so to speak, to get a quick shot at stardom.
        At the expense of an aging and slow Secondary as well.

        Good luck with the 31st Pick now John.
        Hope your FO is up to the task.

      • NJ49er says:

        How about all the Denver Fans who ponied up $1000s to make the trip for that let down.
        Embarrassing is an understatement.

      • 12th man says:

        I didn’t watch a single minute, not even a highlight. Went to the beach and had a great time. Had absolutely no interest in this game.
        Manning yet again did not make a difference in the biggest game, and it sounds like the rest of the team folded at the coin toss.

      • NJ49er says:

        Good for you 12th.
        I watched the first half with my Girls.
        It wasn’t worth the time.
        I opted to work when our guys didn’t make it.
        No regrets for that decision now.

        Broncos finally met a real Defense.
        Thanks for wasting our time Denver.
        Maybe Elway can find another rabbit in the hat, to fix the his own Defense now.

        What a joke of a game.

      • NJ49er says:

        Curious to see the ratings for the 4th quarter, as it relates to all those folks that shoveled money into the NFL coffers for ad time.
        I’m guessing plenty of advertisers are sorry now too.

        Layoffs could be coming for the innocent now.

  37. snarkk says:

    An absolute embarrassment. Denver now has the dubious distinction of having lost 3 of the worst 5 blowout losses in SBlowl history. As we figured, the real SBowl happened in Seattle two weeks ago. Kap doesn’t make that mistake throw, and gets into the EZ, the Niners have this game today easy, and a 6th Lombardi trophy. Given the conservatism of Harbs, maybe only 30 -13. Niners, Cards, Panthers all would beat Denver…

    • NJ49er says:

      I feel the same way Snarkk.
      We’re right there in that conversation.

      NFC West.
      Come. Get some.

      Denver did.
      Laid down like sheep.

    • NJ49er says:

      Peyton this.
      Peyton that.
      He finally faces a strong Defense and looks like a little girl, burping the baby and looking shell shocked in the pocket.
      They know he isn’t running away.
      Hemmed him in, sat on all the crossing routes, game over.

      Denver never tasted any contact like they did tonight.

  38. NJ49er says:

    Also have to laugh out loud regarding SB stats every year.

    Peyton breaks a completion record? Seriously?
    WTF is that worthy of, when you throw 2yd passes all night and, get your A$$ handed to you on the scoreboard?

    I’m really getting tired of all the hype this game is trying to sell.

  39. NJ49er says:

    Recap of SB XLVIII –
    First modern era outdoor venue in a cold weather venue.

    NJ – No Snow
    Seattle – No Contest
    Denver – No Show

  40. NJ49er says:

    Chuck here’s an interesting look at how many of the current QB Contracts impact their respective Cap situations.
    Interestingly, I don’t see Russell Wilson on here?

    What makes the highest priority for me is, the % amount vs. the Cap over term.

    Contacts can be inflated to show impressive total amounts. Much of that number is Fluff.
    What kills you is the guaranteed money, naturally.

    The more you guarantee, the longer the term should be in order to absorb the yearly Cap hit.
    Kaep being young, can certainly be considered for a longer term IMO.

    • unca_chuck says:

      Thanks. That’s good stuff. There certainly are ways to hide/defer the real money in a contract. I used to give Maraage a ton of shit, but he’s become invaluable in his contract dealings.

  41. NJ49er says:

    I found Russell Wilson –
    He’s signed through 2015 at almost $3M/yr guaranteed.
    Not going to break the bank at that price right now.

  42. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, I was gonna say his rookie deal has him through the next 2 years, but I didn’t know the $$$.

    The reason I like the Rodgers scenario is it hedges the bet for both sides. Kappy would get his payday now, but not be locked in for 7 years and thus tie up long long term $$$. And if he lights up the world, we can renegotiatae in 3. I guess long term really doesn’t matter as the money at the end of a contract isn’t really real anyway.

    Funny thing I heard this morning was Stephen A Smith (my son digs him for some reason) saying yesterday’s game certainly puts Colin Kaepernick’s game 2 weeks ago into sharper focus. In that Kappy totally outplayed Manning.

    But really that bar is laying on the ground. I think Carson Palmer and the Cards would have done better than Denver yesterday.

  43. unca_chuck says:

    Plus, I’m real glad they gave the MVP to a defensive guy. No one on Seattle’s offense did much.

  44. unca_chuck says:

    Apropos of nothing, here’s Bullitt’s existence in a nutshell:

    February 2, 2014 at 11:27 pm Chuck

    Flip flopping again? Last month you discounted the significance of Quinton Patton improving his draft stock at last year’s Senior Bowl workouts when I brought it up.
    Now you’re 180 degrees opposite and citing how players did in this year’s Senior Bowl?
    You are just trying to be a troll as usual I see.


    Of course, candy-ass Bullit/Redbull/Touchdown Tommy will never post here under his real name. He needs to hide under the skirts of his protector, Skeebers. Funny, I sure got the impression that Skeebers and Bullit may be the same person, based on this ‘exchange’ a few days ago:
    128 comments on “Bystander Blues”
    Skeebers says:

    January 30, 2014 at 6:46 am I’ve heard the site won’t go to this comment page. If true, nobody can read this comment. If false, can somebody leave a comment verifying they have gotten to this page? Thanks.

    bullit says:

    January 30, 2014 at 6:56 am On my tablet now,perhaps it’s just my pc.


    To me it looks like Skeebers doesn’t realize he’s responding as Bullitt. The timestamps are 10 minutes apart, and Skeebs is trying to troubleshoot his blog.

    Speaking of GOTCHA!

  45. unca_chuck says:

    Skeebs is now deleting my posts over there.


  46. NoFear49er says:

    Skeebers is not one of bullit’s many personas. Comments referred to post on previous blog.

  47. unca_chuck says:

    Whatever. Looks like yer right. Or maybe you are all of them . . . Hah!

    Don’t give a rat’s ass either way.

    Anyhow, new thread is up. . . .
