2 Days to Camp

Rookies report to 4949 Centennial Blvd today! Huzzah!! There was much rejoicing!!! Or, then again, there wasn’t. The prevailing sentiment is the Niners are circling the shitter ready to take the downward spiral to the cesspool, but who am I to listen to prevailing sentiment? I mean really. If it was outrageous to think they were going to suck this year, I’d still think they were going to do well.

Other than that, these last couple preseasons have been just a clusterfuck of innuendo and animosity. The sooner this starts the better. Lots of talk of the potential of Arik Armstead. A guy getting a lot of talk however is Eli Harold, a guy who some saw as a first rounder. Safety Jaquiski Tartt also sounds like a player, but everyone is an all-pro when training camp starts.  There will be booms, busts, and surprises.

Baalke has just completed his 5th draft. He didn’t draft for obvious need this draft, as WR, ILB, and CB were the prevailing thoughts going into the draft. Instead Baalke went DL, S, and ILB. 6 of the next 7 were offensive players (with a punter thrown in), but the thought is the lower you go, the longer the shot. We have a ton of UDFA WRs as well, along with a QB. Lots of bodies, but we are at the point where Baalke needs to start hitting on some offensive players. The team has a lot of talent, but as we’ve seen, Gore has gotten old and left, and Willis and J Smith retired among the other changes. The talent and experience level from just a couple years ago has decreased, but the team has gotten younger and faster.

The good news is the D line has a lot of decent players, the RB corps looks strong, and the WR group looks better by gaining Torrey Smith and losing Crabtree. We stood pat at QB, as the thought is Kappy has another year of experience to build on, but I was surprised  we didn’t draft a backup along with Gaine Blabbert. Worrisome to me is the O line and CB. We hear a lot of encouraging things out of camp re Brandon Thomas and such, but the proof willl be in the pudding on that fateful Monday night, September 14. Talk is just that.

      Think I’ll settle for the CD 😀

  3. NJ49er says:

    Gotta lay some more Javier Vargas on you – Black Cat Boogie – Complete with some eye candy –

    • NJ49er says:

      Sorry – it links to the playlist but…..worth it if you have time to run through them.
      This guy needs a better Agent here in the States.
      Can’t understand why he doesn’t Tour over here?

    And so on and so on and scoobie doobie doobie.

    Just to spice things up, something football related I posted yesterday:
    http://www.ninersnation.com/2015/7/22/9014547/three-years-of-passing-metrics-where-do-the-quarterbacks-rank

    • Winder says:

      It’s hard for me to understand why so many people are down on Kappy. He had some bad games but so did the whole team. We will get a good chance to see if he has grown in the position pretty quick. And, if he has we should be just fine.

      • Winder says:

        And, as far as his tattoo’s from what I can see most of them are religious based. Hardly thug material. He seems to be a kid of the times, a little strange to me but I am pretty much old school.

      • 12th Man says:

        The kid has already shown himself to be very talented. He needs consistency which for him comes from study, guru’s and tighter mechanics. He also needs a better line, better receivers and most importantly a friendly scheme for his talents. Last year he had none of the above.

  8. 62flametele says:

    Winder, I have no life. My sole purpose is to be a sniveling weasel who takes the joy out of everything. Please kill me before I become a bigger pain in the ass.

  9. unca_chuck says:

    Wow, you should feel lucky, folks.

    In the past 24 hours there are 42 posts in the spam filter.

    From you-know-who . . .

  10. Nipper says:

    Look on the positive…..at least this blog and others are keeping him out of movie theaters.

  11. unca_chuck says:

    Damn, Nippy. That’s nasty. Yer on a roll . . .

  12. unca_chuck says:

    I prefer, “Scuze me while I whip this out!”

  13. unca_chuck says:

    Yes, it’s under 2 feet.

  14. 12th Man says:

    Your V filter is catching friendly fire too, lost another one.

  15. 12th Man says:

    Something from Lynch:
    http://blog.sfgate.com/49ers/2015/07/23/can-jim-tomsula-win/

    11 of the 19 coaches on Tomsulas staff have HC or Co-ordinator experience, that is huge.

    • NJ49er says:

      No lack of experience on this Staff 12th.
      All about how they coexist and coordinate the plan that matters most to me.
      I’m hoping for some major contributions from Curry and Henry on the WR side of this Staff.
      If they can get something from the youngsters, this could be an area that takes a big leap forward.
      All comes down to Logan and Chryst getting Kaep into some sort of balance, with ALL of his supporting cast.

      • 12th Man says:

        Like you say NJ, how does the staff come together and can they scheme to the players strengths. Never was a fan of Morton so we wait to see what Curry/Henry have.
        Don’t see the youngsters getting on the field much this year unless one of them really lights it up in TC.

      • rtfirefly says:

        I’ve always thought that the biggest unsung hero of the early Walsh years was John Ralston, former HC at Stanford and of the Denver Broncos. But then his was only 1 voice, not a cacophony.

    • NJ49er says:

      Yeh 12th I questioned Morton numerous times myself.
      Plenty of speculation on whether Baalke can’t Draft WRs or, the Staff couldn’t develop them?
      Hopefully that slice of the roster question can be answered sooner than later.
      Henry worked with Jarvis Landry and OBJr at LSU.
      Reason to be optimistic at least.

  16. rtfirefly says:

    It looks like Strickland/Romo has replaced Romo/Casilla that wasn’t working. GO GIANTS!

    • Berger says:

      Casiila was getting a rest. He had thrown a lot of pitches the previous day. That is what Bochy said after the game.

  17. unca_chuck says:

    The consistent lack of separation was always an issue with me. And not taking advantage of favorable match ups. It isn’t as hard as they were making it IMO.

  18. unca_chuck says:

    Bakkenspittys true colors are starting to show

  19. rob says:

    it might be you … I just hope to god it isn’t me lol

  20. unca_chuck says:

    Heh heh. Too funny. Must say Skeebs did me a favor by banning me. Those fucking troll-sheep-weirdoes are certifiable.

    Got to check the Spam filter after I send this. See what V’s up to.

  21. unca_chuck says:

    Nice work at the abandoned playground of the internet (aka Skeebies), ROB!!!!! You all in with the TITS since they now have COX?

  22. unca_chuck says:

    Awww. All i found was a mis-spammed post from 12th that I released.

  23. unca_chuck says:

    ROB’S much less formal here.

    • rob says:

      Hmmm don’t think I’ve ever posted with my last name De Luca anywhere . I just go by rob . Maybe you guys saw it in Dennis’ fantasy football league.

  24. 12th Man says:

    Brady still guilty on appeal. That organization needs a kick in the ass.

    • rtfirefly says:

      Hey, I’d destroy my old cell phone every time I got a new one if I had naked ladies sending me pictures all day. We wouldn’t want Gisele to stumble on those.

  25. unca_chuck says:

    Kappa certanly had his struggles at times, but that was true of the entire org.

    My problem is and was adjustments by the coaches. We blew leads by going conservative. Look at the GB Seattle NFCC game to see what happens when you go conservative when protecting a lead.

  26. Nipper says:

    Meanwhile on the “other” blog…….Phil laments the “pussification” of football. Congrats Sir Spit on leaving Chuck’s wonderful blog where good music is allowed. I guess chamber music is the only stuff allowed in Geneoushire.

  27. rtfirefly says:

    ”People are probably counting us out, right? ‘Mostly because of the players that we lost: Patrick, Frank, (Michael) Crabtree, all those guys. Not only that, but based on how we did last year. You have to expect that. We didn’t have a great season last year, so of course people are going to count us out. That’s cool, it’s all good.”

    Don’t bust a gut there with your enthusiasm, Vernon.

  28. unca_chuck says:

    Didn’t realize Kappy had 6 TDs called back. I think the team will be a lot looser this year. Whether that translates into anything is the question.

  29. unca_chuck says:

    Gee, buwwit. As usual you open your proverbial mouth to show your stupidity. You must be new to the internets of you don’t get how blocking works. Duh!

    If it was raining clues, you’d remain dry as a bone.

    I guess it’s ok to ban me because of my different opinion, but it isn’t ok for me to ban v.

    Got it, dumb ass. Typical nimrodism.

  30. unca_chuck says:

    Who knew Geneoushire needed a backup idiot?

  31. Berger says:

    The team thought Kilgore would be ready for camp. He was playing well when he got hurt last year. Marcus Martin got thrown in and didn’t do well but that was predictable. Martin had been hurt himself and was only practicing, as a rookie, for a very short time. Can’t gauge Martin from that. Kilgore looks to be a better known quantity but that doesn’t mean Martin can’t be good. Of course it doesn’t mean he’ll be good either. I would feel a bit better if Kilgore was available.

  32. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, these injuries are still hurting the team. The line is the most vulnerable spot.

  33. unca_chuck says:

    I’ve never defended the right to free speech on a blog, Bullit. I’ve blasted that concept since V was hell bent on killing my old blog. But you are too stupid to recognize that. You must be one of those 60 year old idiot savants. You don’t have a brain but you can type nonsensical bullshit at astonishing speeds.

    How fucking stupid are you? Like NoFear, you make shit up to accuse me of. Typical neandethal fascist behavior. Stop fucking talking about me, or go give Skeebers shit for banning me, dumb ass. Otherwise shut yer mouth.

  34. unca_chuck says:

    The question you need to ask is why is Skeebers so afraid of my opinion?

    • 12th man says:

      Nah, I don’t care, life is easier without the teen drama.

    • Berger says:

      The question you have to ask yourself is why you waste your time worrying about the cancer blog. Bullit would engage a fire hydrant in a debate if he thought he could believe himself to be smarter than it. The fire hydrant wins that debate by saying nothing. You should learn from the hydrant.

  35. unca_chuck says:

    hah! but what fun is that? yeah, i should just let it go. I feel like Al Pacino in GF III.

  36. unca_chuck says:

    M worried about Kilgore trout.

    Tralfamador!

  37. unca_chuck says:

    New thread is up . . . enjoy the awesomeness
