“Raise your hand if you think this was the best preseason ever. . . . No raised hands.” To paraphrase Jimbo there, what a trainwreck this offseason has been. Just when you think the Seahawks would get all fat and happy, run for the money, and lose their focus, it turns out the 49ers were the team to shoot themselves in the feet about 15 times since February.
I won’t even start with the myriad distractions, fuckups, and arrests, but it’s safe to say the issue with the 49ers isn’t very much about on-field issues. Yes, we have a young secondary, and yes, our D line has taken a hit, along with the linebackers, but now there’s news that Michael Crabtree has a calf injury. Not sure of the prognosis yet, but hey, at least he didn’t give his leg a molly and try to bang it.
And, in what should be a very rousing start to the NFL season, we have Green Bay and their All Universe QB, Chico’s own Aaron Rodgers going up against the Legion of Boom in the great white Northwest. This game will surely be a test for Green Bay’s maligned defense, as well as an early test for Seattle’s vaunted D.
This season can’t get started fast enough. Bring it on.
