Game Day – Vultures in the Desert Heat

Well, air conditioning. Looks like we are up against Drew Stanton today. Division game, the potential for 2 games out, and being passed by Seattle and the Rams all loom large  in this game.

the pass rush HAS to improve, and Kappy needs to make better decisions with the ball. As do the coaches. Read-option ain’t fooling anyone anymore.  Win and you quiet the doubters. Lose, and the naysayers will get cranky.

It’s early, but this is supposed to be the easier part of the schedule.

  1. 12th man says:

    Cam Inman points out the Niners have scored a total of 3 points in 2 games in the second half. That’s 4 qtr’s of play and 3 points. That is dead last in the league, tied with the Jags, allowing the opposition to mount comebacks.

    This team, and it’s freakin coaches better get that shit straight in a hurry.

    Niners over the Cards 24-17

  2. 12th man says:

    Incidentally I think the read-option will work against the Cards overly aggressive D.

  3. 21-0 Rams. How bout dem Cowboys!

  4. 49ers Inactives
    TE V.Davis
    TE V.McDonald
    WR Patton
    CB Brock
    OL M.Martin
    T A.Davis
    DL Tank Carradine

    Quick. Get Derek Carrier in your starting fantasy lineup now.

  5. unca_chuck says:

    Carrier certainly looks better in his limited action than VMcD has. We’ll see today.

    Dallas takes the lead

  6. unca_chuck says:

    Wes Welker gets his suspension reduced? Huh. He starts today vs the Seahawks.

  7. unca_chuck says:

    I don;t, 12th/ I theink read-option is about the worst thing the NIners can do against that defense. Misdirection, delays, play-action on run downs is the way to go. Read option is’t going to work against their LBs.

  8. Dallas once trailed 21-0. They now lead the Rams 34-24.
    Like I said. How bout dem Cowboys!

    Another 4th Q comeback win for Romo. The legend continues, if only in my mind. 😛

  9. I didn’t need any more reason to hate the Ravens, for obvious reasons. But now it’s to the point to where I wish evil to fall upon each and member of that organization. Past and present.

    My hatred reached it’s boiling point this morning when I listened to a murderer who beat the rap get all high and mighty this morning on ESPN when talking about Ray Rice. Ray Lewis telling me about about what’s right and wrong.

    A total affront against my intelligence and moral beliefs. Fuck you.

  10. unca_chuck says:

    3 man rush = 30 yards.

  11. unca_chuck says:

    Fangio is going to be the death of me. If you don’t pressure NFL QB’s, even guys like Stanton, they will beat you.

    I think we need to run 3 wide and run the ball.

  12. ARZ looks totally unprepared for this hurry-up offense.

  13. unca_chuck says:

    Fuck Kappy. You fell down short.

  14. unca_chuck says:

    That was stupid beyond reason. They’d better get this 1st down.

  15. NoFear49er says:

    No back shotgun spread, Kaepernick is going to get leveled like that.

  16. unca_chuck says:

    Not if AZ keeps rushing 4.

  17. unca_chuck says:

    Got to love Carrier. he takes shots. Hell of a catch.

  18. unca_chuck says:

    Got to get in here.

  19. unca_chuck says:


    Fuck the run in the red zone.

  20. NoFear49er says:

    CK7 7 for 7.

  21. snarkk says:

    Did a different Niner offense get recruited for this game? Did Roman get replaced as OC and nobody mentioned it? WTF was that drive? Where was THAT the past 2 years? Keep it going…

  22. rtfirefly says:

    All 3 games TD on 1st drive.

  23. Spitblood says:

    Carrier’s gonna beat out McDonald.

  24. unca_chuck says:

    Fuck the NFL. Fuck these penalties. Navorro bowman called on the sidelines.

  25. NoFear49er says:

    Bowman called for a penalty?

  26. Chip Kelly just went for the dagger vs WAS. and got the 1st dn.
    Someone try and please explain that strategy to Jimbo.

  27. unca_chuck says:

    Ellington moves early and Brooks gets called for the phantom hands to the face.

  28. rtfirefly says:

    Gutsy call by Fox. 37-34 Phil over Wash, Wash ball, couple minutes left…

    Cut to postgame show – early.

  29. And the beat goes on with the yellows…

  30. unca_chuck says:

    I can’t watch anymore. The is is the new NFL. Unwatchable.

  31. unca_chuck says:

    I can’t take this. Every 3rd down stop is a penalty.

  32. snarkk says:

    These illegal contact penalties are destroying this game. That has to be fixed. Agree with Chuck, you can’t watch this anymore without thinking — where’s the hanky?…

  33. How long have I’ve been calling us the Raiders?
    We’ve surpassed them now when it comes to being undisciplined re penalties.
    Inexcusable. Starts with poor coaching and ends with even worse execution.

  34. unca_chuck says:

    The Niner defense would have givewn up 35 less points without all these ticky tacky calls

  35. NoFear49er says:

    Manning rolling on the Seahwaks D and the 12th man.

  36. unca_chuck says:

    Ward with a nice play.

  37. unca_chuck says:

    18 against 11 and we’re up by 1.

  38. Stop watching Chuck. I’m going to. You don’t have the intestinal fortitude to say no to the NFL. You’ll just keep lapping this shit up and bitch along the way.

    Either stop bitching or stop watching.

  39. unca_chuck says:

    Speaking of balls, Harbaugh finally grew a pair.

  40. Burned our 3rd and final TO of the half with 7 mins left to play.
    When did we re-hire Mike Martz again?

  41. Spitblood says:

    This is exactly the offense the 49ers need to run against everyone, regardless of defense. It’s not perfect right now. It’ll take some time. But this offense utilizes Colin Kaepernick’s skills the best.

    • And you like this type of offense? But of course you do. It’s the new rage. QBs no longer have to sit, think and make quick decisions in the pocket. Just run read-options and fake dives, roll-outs and option plays. Don’t have ’em think too much. Just let ’em run wild. That’s not QBing, that’s the bullshit that’s being infiltrated from the Pop Warner and HS level on up. The NFL has had to adapt to the lower levels of play because that’s the type of QBs their sent now. It’s supposed to be the other way. The NFL sets the precident, others follow suit. It’s call the “Trickle Down” theory. Fucking Reagan must be spitting up blood in his grave.

  42. unca_chuck says:

    A llittle surprised no Gore, no Hyde. All kappy all the time.

  43. Spitblood says:

    Hyde’s a beast. Love that guy. Must of been a Rathman find.

    • Flavor says:

      running over that dude and getting 6 is something Gore can’t do at this point in his career (at least, down by the goal line). I hope the OC finally decides to at least share the carries between those 2…..

  44. snarkk says:

    If this is the offense you get when two of 3 TEs are out hurt, they can stay hurt…

  45. Midway through the 2nd and the Chiefs are still not on the board.
    Move over Steve Miller, Alex Smith is the latest to “take the Money and Run.”

  46. Spitblood says:

    Why is Frank Gore even on our team anymore?

  47. snarkk says:

    Gore is pretty much good only for pass protection, IMO. Compared to Hyde, he moves like he’s running in sand. Hyde has to become more of the offensive scheme ASAP…

  48. Spitblood says:

    Jonathan Martin over Adam Snyder? Thank Baalke.

  49. Caught a break we didn’t get 15 yds for a helmet to helmet flag.
    That’s why I don’t bitch at the refs.

    • Spitblood says:

      Be interesting to see if Ward can stay healthy playing the way he does with such a small frame. Kid has talent. But can he stay healthy?

  50. Alleykat says:

    Boys coming to play today!
    Kappy strong 1st half!
    Hyde barreling over a helpless defender!
    God I love his hard nosed running style, he truly is a “Beast” aka Marshawn JR with more top end speed!

  51. Tackling in the NFL has reached an all-time low. It saddens me to say that because as you know and as I’ve been wont to say…Football is a very simple game. You block, and you tackle. The rest is all jazzed-up and littered with glitter to appease FF fans.

    • rtfirefly says:

      …or, as I like to say, “You throw the quarterback, you hit the quarterback, you catch the quarterback.”

      • Spitblood says:

        Are you smoking weed again?

      • rtfirefly says:

        Can’t. It’s illegal in this state, you know, unless you’re on your deathbed and have a card. Wait till we legalize, if I haven’t died of old age by then. Then ask me again.

      • Spitblood says:

        Now I know you’re smoking weed. It’s the paranoia.

      • rtfirefly says:

        As long as we have Repub Gov. “Oh!” Susana Martinez, it ain’t gonna happen, and her opponent in the upcoming election is an even bigger nitwit who’s going to get steamrolled.

    • Alleykat says:

      I do still miss the days of Butkus, Wilcox and many other bad assess, who not only punished RB’s and ripping their helmets off, “always figured once it would happen with a RB’s head still inside”!
      Yeah that was “No Bars Football” and what was cool, the refs let him play, no pansy football back then…

  52. It’s obvious to all of us that Hyde should be starting > Gore. So my question to you is, would you wish an injury upon Frank Gore if you knew it would benefit the team in the long and short-term?

    I wish for certain people to die each and every day so I think you know where I stand.

    • Irish Kevin says:

      For me it is usually the driver in front of me, or the driver that just pulled into my lane without signaling!!

  53. Why didn’t Cully break out his brass knuckles on Floyd?
    Cox just shoved something into his mouth.

  54. Irish Kevin says:

    Will we ever see the Niners blitz like the cards did at the end of the first half? One can only hope

  55. 17-3 Seahawks > Broncos at the half. Their home field adv is ridiculous.
    But, hey! Niners have great Wi-Fi and Michael Mina chef-quality food.

  56. unca_chuck says:

    love that 4 man rush.

  57. unca_chuck says:

    Here we go. Get to see how we react to AZ ratcheing up the pressure. Because they will

  58. unca_chuck says:

    We go prevent to start the 2nd half.

  59. Irish Kevin says:

    Where have I seen this play calling before?

  60. This league is a fucking joke. I hope Roger Goodell dies of slow eye cancer.
    You can’t hit anyone anymore.

  61. Alleykat says:

    Now it’s time for the Refs to take over with BS calls!

  62. Spitblood says:

    Horrible call on Willis. The NFL should be embarassed.

  63. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. Hit with the shoulder. Penalty. Hit a QB throwing, penalty. Fuck this. joke joek joek.

  64. rtfirefly says:

    What about the FACEMASK on the O-lineman?

  65. unca_chuck says:

    The NFL is coming down on Harbaugh for being a whiner.

  66. unca_chuck says:

    Fangio needs to go.

  67. Speaking of jokes…we’re losing to Drew fucking Stanton.

  68. unca_chuck says:

    How many 3rd downs do you get burned without blitzing?

  69. unca_chuck says:

    This prevent defense isn’t working We are in this all game and get toasted with regluarity.

  70. Spitblood says:

    Nice defense by Jimmy Ward on John Brown. LOL. Jimmy Ward is getting beatin’ like a drum. Nice defense Fangio. Gotta overcome penalties. Maybe an Eric Reid blown coverage. But either way, this is a backup qb. This is Drew Stanton!

  71. Spitblood says:

    LOL….. Unca and Del still pointing at the coaching staff. HAHAHAHA. It’s the players Baalke has given Harbaugh and Fangio. IT’S THE PLAYERS!!!!

  72. Alleykat says:

    Sure could of used a Blitz there, instead of standing around like Willis was ,before the snap still barking out signals and looking confused!!’
    Fucking A “Send the House”

  73. Spitblood says:

    Ward? That guy looks like a college freshman. Nice first round pick, Baalke.

  74. unca_chuck says:

    Here we go with the prevent offense.

  75. Will you people please stop blaming our coordinators. It’s like blaming the guy who pumped your gas at Exxon for the Valdez.

    It’s Harbaugh’s fault.

  76. sammyg says:

    Coaching was fine when the reached the super bowl and championship game/ it’s the Players stoopid.

    • unca_chuck says:

      Right. losing Dorsey, A Smith and Bowman has nothing to do with it. But the 4 man rush was toastewd last week and it;s getting toasted now. Boldin with the stupid move of the day.


  77. sammyg says:

    Idiots looks like the raiders with all the personal fouls

  78. No fucking discipline. Pathetic.

  79. Winder says:

    Sad but true we just can’t play for 60 minutes, I have a hard time grasping this shit.

  80. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. El foldo. 1st and goal from the 9 becomes the 21. Thing is, 99% of the time that isn’t called. Still, Boldin is retarded for doing that. Give the refs a reason to throw a flag, and we get one.

  81. unca_chuck says:

    The coaches are wearing another major fold job.

  82. 3rd and goal from the 36. I love those plays.

  83. NoFear49er says:

    Who’s coaching ol’ faceplant?

  84. Spitblood says:

    Jonathan Martin is horrible. Worst players ever.

  85. unca_chuck says:

    Right. He gets his helmet pulled off and no penalty.

  86. Irish Kevin says:

    A screen?? Really?

  87. Spitblood says:

    So it’s Harbaugh’s fault the field goal was blocked? IT’S THE PLAYERS BAALKE IS STACKING THIS TEAM WITH. WARD? MARTIN?

  88. unca_chuck says:

    wow. Losing in every phase.

  89. rtfirefly says:

    We had 1st and Goal from the 10 somewhere in there?

  90. That was a very low kick by Dawson. Have to give the Cards some cred for the block, but I think it’s time to seriously consider a change at PK.

    What’s Ray Wersching up to these days?

  91. Irish Kevin says:

    That is as bad as giving it to Gore!! 3rd and goal on the 34!!

  92. Winder says:

    When it’s time for a change…

  93. unca_chuck says:

    Please go prevent, Fangio.

  94. Irish Kevin says:

    Playoffs? Playoffs!! I just want a win!!

  95. unca_chuck says:

    This team is falling apart when there’s penalties every play.

  96. Ted Ginn Jr. with a completed pass. We suck.

  97. Irish Kevin says:

    Ted making his former team look like fools
