    Nipper- I saw that. I would have already responded but I had to stop laughing first.

    First, Skeebers defines his own blog in trying to dis another. Precious!

    Then bulllit says he asked me to do something. I had to get out of my chair to take a walk and laugh. Like anybody ever does anything bullit asks. How many times does he throw a temper tantrum stating, I asked for…. and they still haven’t responded. I’m trying to not laugh now. He thinks he is a blog authoritarian. LMAO! This is probably the most important he has ever felt in his life. I picture him sitting in the living room crying out to his parents in frustration that nobody will do what he asks. The mad little bossy man. But wait, he has statistics and quotes so he must be heard. LOL! I can’t stop being amused at some of this.

      Berger there is a good reason I started calling Bullit and his various pseudonymes Paris Hilton, he fits the type to a T.

    • Berger says:

      Bullit, who can’t even spell his own name, says he never used a different name. We know he used Dirt Diver. So I guess we are supposed to believe that he is now telling the truth. Whatever.

  2. unca_chuck says:

    You project a lot, don’t you, NoFear? Eddie threw the team under the bus regularly when they came up short. Selective memory is a terrible thing to use.

    Is Harbaugh’s leadership style workable in the military, NoFear? Calling your superior a pussy in front of your men? Yeah, that’d work.

    What you guys fail to even consider is that Harbaugh wanted out. Read any article about Harbaugh and you see his abject wanton desire to coach Michigan. He moved onto the same street where Bo Achembechler used to live on. He wanted to coach there since he was 12. He’s a smart guy. He just wanted to create a shitstorm around his departure because that’s how he rolls. By his own fucking admission! If he really wanted to stay, he wood have. The same goes for Stanford. He was biding his time until the Michigan job looked like a possibility. Hoke was obviously going to get canned this last season, so Harbaugh plays the string out here among a ton of innuendo on both sides.

    Before your head flies off, NoFear, this speculation has as much validity as anything else floated out there by the likes of you St Jim acolytes.

  3. 12th Man says:

    A terrible mind is a thing to waste is more apropo Nipper.

  4. Berger says:

    Now they are saying I predicted that we would be 3-13 if Harbaugh stayed. Their emotions are blinding them so much they can’t even read. I said possibly 3-13. I predicted 6-8 or worse. It is a good prediction in my mind. Is it accurate? Who knows, it is just my opinion. You can only have a prediction over there if you agree with them. Otherwise you get banned.

  5. Winder says:

    If our O-line doesn’t gel then we are in trouble. We do have a lot of bodies in camp that are gonna have to step-up. Our D-line should have some fresh legs so hopefully we will be able to contain the run and get off the field in timely fashion for the most part. I know people all say it’s a passing league but to me that’s only if your Denver, NE, maybe GB and Dallas but they depend a lot on the run too. If Kappy can work some magic like I think he can we will be in for a fun year.

    • Berger says:

      The passing game will get a team into the play-offs. From there they will need to run at some point. We should ssk Pete in Seattle about the run vs the pass! LOL!

    • 12th man says:

      Agree, especially about the OLine, my biggest area of concern too.

  6. Berger says:

    I have no problem with dissenting views. I am going with 10-6 for now and will adjust when I see pre-season. If somebody wants to say we will be less than .500 with the current make-up, fine. We will see. I think we will pleasantly surprise a lot of 49er fans.

    When I am talking to fans around town more than half of them agree with my opinion. Most say Harbaugh had to go too. Reading a blog is a microcosm and a small sample of emotional opinions. Talking to fans around town has shown me a lot of optimism. I think most fans see good things and hopefully the others will be pleasantly surprised.

    • Winder says:

      I still think there has to be an end-game plan in regards to all the changes we’ve gone through this off-season. Willis, Borland, and quitter Davis were unexpected but we just have to live with it.

  7. Berger says:

    Winder- I have an opinion about all the player losses. Harby had a management style that was divide and conquer. We all saw he was reading a book about the very style of management. What I have done for much of my life is train salespeople and managers. When breaking down that style we associate it with a guy named Napoleon. In fact that style has been called Napoleonic. Guess what happened to Napoleon, he was exiled. Guess what happened to Harbaugh. People who know Harbaugh predicted him to not last long. They cited his coaching style. That now looks prophetic.

    Players usually play for the love and money of the game. When the love is gone there is just the money. At some point a player weighs the money vs the love. Harbaugh took the fun out of the game for many players. After weighing it out some have decided to not play anymore. Divide and conquer can have good short term results but takes a toll in the long run. Players stopped enjoying the game to the point the money was no longer worth it.

    I think what we will see this year is players enjoying the game again under Tomsula. That is why I think we will do well.

    • 12th man says:

      Kap said he thinks the changes are for the good which tells me he is enjoying it again. Harbaugh turned Kap from a fun loving gunslinger into a surly, monosyllabic, depressive, afraid to throw until his man was clearly open.

      Kap took on Harbaugh persona and wore it like a coat, it was wierd.

  8. Berger says:

    Bullit is now saying I can’t spell my name. In German, a berger is a man from a mountain town. It can be spelled Burger or Berger. Bullitt is a movie with a cool car. Bullit is not a movie. He used to post a picture of the car on his posts at SFGate. There is no questioning how to spell Bullitt if one wants to be associated with the movie. Every time the man speaks he just keeps looking worse off.

  9. NoFear49er says:

    Chuck, no one seems to remember exactly the words used or the context in which they were delivered. The fact that Jed didn’t fire Harbaugh on the spot would indicate Jed didn’t take the comment as an insult or as a questioning of his manhood. Since he was there, he probably knew what was said and how it was meant.

    If Harbaugh did insult his boss as you say and Jed didn’t fire him on the spot that would simply prove Jed is the weenie I said he was.


    So if “good” owners should issue a public apology when their team turns in a sub-par performance, why don’t they? If that’s leadership why aren’t they all over the Sports Center apologizing for their teams weekly? Obvious answer, it isn’t!

    We were tied with Seattle for 2nd place in the division race at 7-4 each before that home game. Not so bad considering all the injuries, either. After losing that game we lost the next three in a row. Pretty solid evidence of the effect of that team-embarrassing statement since Harbaugh had not lost more than two in a row previously.

    • Berger says:

      I guess it is evidence because you say it is evidence. I say the next three losses prove what most of us fans knew, we were playing like shit and the record was for numbers people. Most fans could see we were not a good team. Some fans were just hanging on to a win loss record. We have evidence of that.

  10. unca_chuck says:

    So the tweet demoralized the team, NoFear? God, how moronic is that? That sounds more like something Bullit would say. Like saying Willis and Borland retired because Harbaugh left.

    And Harbagh calling his boss a pussy, no matter the context, is ok to do? Funny how that works out. Keep the bromance alive. It’s funny that Harbaugh doing something sophomoric and juvenile is fine to you.

  11. unca_chuck says:

    Do you think Harbaugh saying that was maybe a situation where Harbaugh was trying to predetermine his fate with the team? And possibly escalate it?

  12. unca_chuck says:

    What’s funny is Skeebs and co say they have no problem with different points of view, but what did he do? Banned me, and the gang of morons attack winder endlessly. NJ as well.

    • NJ49er says:

      Chuck it is what is.
      I don’t have an issue with anyone having an opinion.
      What’s going on between the Blogs choosing sides baffles me.
      All I can say is, it clearly got beyond the scope of working together at 4949.
      I can’t be an authority on anything I didn’t directly witness or overhear.

      Writers and reporters speculate for a living as well.
      We’re left to add our speculation to the mix.

  13. Winder says:

    Actually it is kind of entertaining, this really is a dead time of year. And it proves that so many people with eyes don’t see the situations the same way at all. All I gotta say is that I hope we at least go 10-6. If we don’t it’s gonna be a long year.

    • Winder says:

      chuck- I really don’t feel attacked at all. There is only one over there I feel is malicious and I’ll keep that to myself. Spit and V don’t really bother me, if their post is over a paragraph i just don’t bother reading it.

  14. NJ49er says:

    Hey it looks like we’ve finally gotten a Police Blotter piece on an NFL Coach.
    Aaron Kromer should fit in nicely with Rex up there in Buffalo –


  15. Nipper says:

    It’s apparent that the “other” blog will celebrate the losses and over here we can celebrate the wins!

  16. NJ49er says:

    Not sure if I ever linked this piece in the past but, for what it’s worth, it provides yet another opinion on Harbaugh, from the National Media POV and the 4-letter Networks’ angle –


  17. Berger says:

    NJ- Good post. I like Harbaugh. Still do. Thing is, it was time for him to go. No hard feelings.

    The guy that reported what Harbaugh said to York about the meeting is for men only is the same guy that reported the Willis retirement long before anybody else knew. Some will dismiss the report simply because they don’t want to believe it is true.

    • NJ49er says:

      Berger not one of us here had an issue with Harbaugh winning games.
      In the grand scheme of things, a team has to have a balance, not only within the Locker Room but, within the complex it operates in.
      If Jim/Trent/Jed couldn’t get together on the inner workings, what else could have been expected?
      I’ve read pieces about discord within, how winning covers the smell and, everything in between.

      Once the injury bug bit and, the losses began to occur more frequently, the rumors began to circulate about who wasn’t talking to who, etc, etc, etc.

      No Organization survives that sort of turmoil and succeeds.
      Harbaugh obviously didn’t mind the chaos, and some suggest, he welcomed it.

      I’ll miss the competitiveness he instilled but, I won’t miss all the sideline antics, the constant Media circus of non-answer answers either.
      Too many distractions for my taste.

      It’s another chapter of “Let’s try again’.
      Like you, I’ll hope for the best.

  18. Berger says:

    NJ- Go read my 11:53AM post. It pretty much gives my opinion of what happened and why I am optimistic about the season.

    • NJ49er says:

      I read all posts everyday Berger.
      Even the one’s that suggest I’m a Pussy Fan.

      • NJ49er says:

        Trust me, I’ve been called worse over the years.
        Ain’t gonna hurt my feelings no matter how hard you try 😀

  19. “It’s apparent that the “other” blog will celebrate the losses and over here we can celebrate the wins!”

    If “Nippstradamus” is once again prophetic, the “other” blog will be like this every week…

  20. Those wanting to see this blog celebrate the wins will be like…

  21. What’s really funny and the reason why that ALL you people make me fucking sick is this:
    Stop taking sides in all of these arguments. The only correct argument is mine.

    1. Jim Harbaugh sucks.
    2. Jed York sucks.
    3. Trent Baalke sucks.
    4. This new coaching staff and especially Jim Tomsula will suck.
    5. Colin Kaepernick sucks.

    I could go on for days listing those who suck [insert name of favorite suckee here] I’m sure yours truly would be atop most, if not all of your lists, but my picture I.D. would show me wearing a 49ers red and gold polo shirt and hat. Just like the rest of the mooks who claim to be apart of the 49er Family…


    • NJ49er says:

      Del it’s one BIG SUCK around these parts.
      Can’t understand how all of us so called 9er fans, are at each other’s throats?
      Football is popular because of it’s violent nature perhaps but, it seems to be making fans more violent?
      Why is that?

      I’ve always considered anyone I meet showing/wearing 9er colors, to be a member of my extended family.
      I come to places such as this, (and over at Skeeber’s site), for some good old 9er conversations.
      I’m beginning to think we’ve all gone mad.

  22. Berger says:

    NJ- Anybody who can’t handle Jed’s benign tweet and thinks a future coach is going to pass up 4 million per year over it is a pussy fan. In your case I think you are just getting cancer from the 49er cancer blog. Get well soon my friend. Your chemo will be a few wins in September. If the 49ers start off 1-3 I fear your cancer will spread out of control.

  23. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, NJ, I don;t get the abject hatred toward the team by some folks. The gamut on the street runs from Jed is a moron to Harbaugh REALLY needed to go.

    I temper every discussion with the fact that the offense has never been particularly overpowering. Sure, we run well, but one that was stuffed,

    Last year it was very easy to dictate the scheme after stopping the run. Throw in the fact that the Niners were the one to take Kappy out of the mix running, and you have a problem. Better teams managed to take away Gore last year, and simply blitz/stunt/bull rushed their way to wins. We had trouble blocking 4, let alone 5 or 6.

    • 12th Man says:

      The team set a record for sacks allowed last year, 52 I think it was. Not going to get much of a passing attack from that.

  24. Winder says:

    Hey NJ, were the good guys.
    dennis – I know everything sucks and it will probably suck all year. But what I wanna know is are you gonna run the league again this year? I for one hope you do. And, since CA is in one of their every 10 year droughts how is the water level for your duck pond? Those babies need water or they will go somewhere else.

  25. unca_chuck says:

    Hah! Hell yeah we’re the good guys. I mean who hopes for failure from their team?

    Guys who want to crow about being right. “Look at me! I predicted failure first!!”

    Even during the dark days of the Nolan/Sing eras I had hope because the team was full of good players. Why these chicken littles deny the existence of a team with talent eludes my comprehension.

    New thread is up . . .

  26. unca_chuck says:

    At least Dennis is consistent. He predicts failure all the time every time. Even though the Giants have won 3 in 5, he’s still pissed. Dumb-ass. The ducks are smarter than you.
