Five Days and Counting

Well, the wait is (almost) finally over. the new-look streamlined 49ers open camp on August 1st at 7:00 pm pacific time. In these days of truncated preseasons and quick turnaround times, we have out first exhibition game on August 15th in Houston. The home preseason opener is Aug 23rd vs those lovely Cowgirls.

Two weeks of practice and instant season. Is it enough time to assimilate everything? Gosh, Wally! Who knows? There’s been enough blogticulation to fill 666 King James bibles, so I’ll leave that part of the story out, other than to say there appears to be little middle ground on what the future portends. I will say that Harbaugh managed to pull it off back in 2011 with an even smaller window. No reason to think these guys can’t get shit rolling quickly. Unless you subscribe to the myth that St. Jim is otherworldly.

As far as the season goes, you have the chicken-littles and you have the guardedly optimistic. No one is predicting a Super Bowl berth with the amount of talent that left, but many (including me) expect a playoff run. The team still has a lot of talent, and they have an experienced coaching staff. Defensively anyway. Then you have the crowd that seems to caper around gleefully predicting the long and hard fall to abject shittiness and decrepitude. No middle ground, no thinking that there may be a bump in the road. It is a decade of downtime. Jed screws the team into the ground for 10 years for some sort of ego bath. Got it. It had nothing to do with the fact that the former head coach was a major league asshole who alienated everyone in the building and took a strong team to be the bridesmaid, but not the bride. A team that went 8-8. Despite St Jim and all those guys that left.

I get thinking the team could possibly have a rough patch, but to devote so much time and energy to spreading the bile endlessly over months and months and ridiculing every move the team makes and inventing reasons for why shit went bad 2 years ago is baffling. The overarching need to get in front of the ‘they suck’ train is a mystery to me.

Like the crazy crab promotions at the Stick years ago (“We don’t do mascots. Please boo the crab!”) , there are people hoping against hope that the team crashes and burns, so they can project their hatred of the owner. A guy who looks and acts just like his predecessor, Eddie.

    Winder lets loose on the “other” blog………”Tom-to understand a working brain you first must have one.”

    Yeah, bakkenspitty’s getting his retardo-vision going over there.

    NoFear is right in lockstep saying to root for losses is to be optimistic. It’s looney tunes time. Give what a rest? The last 150 threads by Skeeves are all Anti Jed screeds. Go read your mistress Ann Killion, NoFear. You regurgitate her spiel verbatim.

    Imagination is a terrible thing to waste. On the other hand blather should be ignored.

    Wow, NoFear. Lie much? Get Bulllit to dig up those posts. You are full of shit as usual. Your fucking narrative is all you care or talk about. Whether it has any basis in reality or not. . Your pompous tangental idiocy can be seen through rather easily. I’d like to go over what I aid then. but, fuck it you believe what you want to believe. Nolan and Sing suffered the same faate as Harbaugh. No offensive imagination. I said it then, I said it now. I said Smith would be better served with better coaching, You disappeared.

    Still pining for the Suit?? Yeah, how;d that next head coaching gig for him go?? The one you said he’d get. Oh that’s right, he’s been promoted to position coach. Hurts, doesn’t it?

    Like your prediction of anywhere from 10- to 6-10, you really go out on a limb. Better yet come up with some nonsensical post having nothing to do with anything.

    Ride that fence.,skippy. Still can’t stand up Try it som etime.
