Hiding Behind the Shield

What’s interesting in the fallout of Tom Brady’s overturned suspension, Jolly Roger seems to have had his legs cut out from under him. Throw in the Bounty-gate overturning, and the absolute bungling of the Ray Rice/Greg Hardy suspensions overturnings and reinstatements, players these days are immune to misdeeds. Barring convictions. Seeing as most of these guys can lawyer up pretty hard, and can therefore put things off til the season is over, they are pretty much able to live abouve the law and hide behind the shield.

I’m sure this isn’t was Goodie Goodell intended by being a hard-ass not interested in due process, but now the players use that very tactic to put off legal proceedings.

Aldon Smith is the latest example of a guy who has burned bridges and broken laws at every turn, and yet gets a make-good deal with the Raiders. And we all know that if he was a scrub, he’d be working at Home Depot stocking shelves. But hey, I don’t begrudge the guy a damn thing. Get what you can get while you can. There’s no law against accepting a job offer.

My point is some should make a stand regarding this. Tiring, sure to point this out again, but the league and the owners don’t care that some of their players are habitual criminals. Domestic abusers, child abusers, drunk drivers, and drug-fueled steroid freaks. All is fine as long as the collective perception jives with the reality that no one really cares what these guys do. Except for the victims of their misdeeds, of course.

So who makes the stand? Well, in the Niners case recently, Jim Harbaugh hid behind the very due process keeping these guys on the field. Of course he gave Seattle and the Ravens shit for the steroid problems and the Ray Rice deal, but he sure wimped out when the chickens came home to roost in the form of Aldon Smith and Ray McDonald. He ate teo big helpings of crow over that shit.

Course it took 3 strikes to force the Nienrs hand with both RayMac and Aldon. Now they can at least try to get in front of another situation by benching Ahmad Brooks. The team? Hiding behind the shield. Same with Sir Jed Tweetsalot. Seeing as Harbs wimped out, maybe Jim Tomsula will be the one to make a stand.

    Not playing Brooks? You may as well expect Dennis to become stone sober and warm cuddly.

  2. unca_chuck says:

    From ESPN:

    “According to the Santa Clara district attorney’s office, Aldon Smith was charged with three misdemeanors Friday: DUI with a prior conviction and refusal to submit a chemical test, hit and run with property damage and vandalism with damage under $400. He is set to be arraigned Oct. 6. The maximum penalty is two years and six months in county jail if he is convicted of all three charges.

    Smith practiced with the team Friday, wearing No. 99. Despite his off-the-field issues, Smith will be eligible to play Sunday, which the Raiders will consider depending on his conditioning, league sources tell Schefter. Smith could be subject to severe NFL discipline in the future, pending the judicial outcome of his latest incident.

    The expectation around the NFL is that Smith will be suspended again at some point this season, but he is eligible to play until a suspension is announced.”

    This will get pled down to something more manageable. 2016 may be a lost year for him. Can’t imagine that they’ll go lighter than the 9 games he got for an earlier violation. Shit, he’ll STILL only be 27 should he lose the season next year.

  3. 12th Man says:

    Moving on.
    Steelers didn’t exactly look invincible last night. The Niners have a shot at them. Who knows, they could be 2-0 and if they are I feel strongly that the foundation that Harbaugh laid will be the reason…

  4. rtfirefly says:

    I should have known that Bullet and Bakkentom are one and the same. How did I miss that?

  5. rtfirefly says:

    Jay Cutler, Bullet and Bakken’s favorite NFL QB, 1-11 lifetime against The Pack, including the NFC Championship Game for all but Cutler, who was getting some bike riding in.
    How come BullTom never mention that when they’re dissing Kappy and lauding Cutlets? Could it be Kappy’s 2-0 record against The Pack in the playoffs?

  6. Winder says:

    rt- bakken is a 49er troll. Bullit would rather see the 49ers fail just so he can say he was right all along. That’s whats at skeebs blog nowadays.

    • rtfirefly says:

      Writing styles are identical, they post at the same time, they both diss Kap at the same time and in the same way, and Bullet is an infamous Alex lover. Hmmm…

      • rtfirefly says:

        Plus, Bullet’s already been busted for posting under other names with the intention of deception, good ol’ Touchdown Tommy coming most readily to mind. I’ve never posted under any other name, so to me right there his credibility is shot.

      • rtfirefly says:

        I included “with the intention of deception” because posting under another name by itself is nothing. You used to be sidewinder, but you weren’t trying to fool anybody. Reno’s changed his name, again same as you. Spitty changes his name every time he gets banned, but he isn’t trying to fool anybody either. Changing to impersonate a non-existent person is a whole different and very messed up world.

      • Winder says:

        rt- maybe you are right, I dunno, it’s way out of my league.

      • rtfirefly says:

        It just gets annoying, Winder, when Bullet (or others, but especially Bullet) uses that to try to somehow justify his slanted viewpoint. Or to try to hide that he’s posting the same crap non-stop.

      • Winder says:

        Tedious is how I see it.

      • Berger says:

        I went by Berger on SFGate but got banned for telling Del that Mindy Bach was fuckable. I had to change my name to Renoberger. So the two names isn’t for deception, it is out of necessity.

        Bullit (sic) also used Dirtdiver on SFGate. He says he doesn’t use other names but since he has been caught lying many times before, he isn’t believable. He recently put one of my sentences in quotes and changed a word that changed the entire meaning. He is a genuine lying piece of shit.

      • rtfirefly says:

        That was my point, Reno. Winder and you changed names for perfectly innocent reasons.

  7. Nipper says:

    Skeebers runs an asylum not a blog. Some of those guys must be sucking their thumbs and in a fetal position when not posting on his blog.

  8. 12th Man says:

    Vernon Davis on last season:
    Last season was tight end Vernon Davis’ worst in the NFL. This offseason, he discussed what went wrong.

    “Whenever I’d run, like, my deep over routes, there was a safety sitting over there already,” Davis said, per Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee. “It was just game-planning. And nothing really every opened up. But I was really ever a factor in the offense last year. … The first game, yeah. But the second game, the tight ends (weren’t) really involved as a whole.”

    In other words, he felt like an afterthought.

    Horses mouth.

    • Berger says:

      Bullit (sic), Dirtdiver, Touchdown Tommy, just shit his pants over that quote. What do you mean Harbaugh couldn’t figure out how to get him open.

  9. 12th Man says:

    More from Davis:

    On Thursday afternoon, I asked him if he feels more involved in the offense this year. “Yes,” he said as he sighed and laughed. “Big smile on my face.”

    But why does he feel more involved?

    “Practice, man,” Davis said. “Everything for me is happening in practice. I’ve probably caught more balls than I’ve ever caught here in my 10 years of practice.”

  10. Berger says:

    Numbers people only understand numbers. They only spot trends when the numbers bore them out. It is so easy to see Harbaugh was about to be mutinied. There is no possible way a numbers person could pick that unless Harbaugh had another year for the numbers to prove it.

    • rtfirefly says:

      He’s a numbers person until he’s not a numbers person. The # of Super Bowls Kap has been in vs. Alex, the # of NFCCGs Kap has been in vs. Alex, their age Kap vs. Alex, # of years since taking over as starter, Kap vs. Alex, career team record Kap vs. Alex, career QBR Kap vs. Alex, those numbers he conveniently ignores.

      It’s just amazing how that works.

      • Berger says:

        The most laughable line of the year last year was Skeebers saying something to the effect that Alex would have been shredding teams. I say with what, Harbaugh’s college offense.

      • The most laughable line of four years ago, and arguably the most laughable line of all time, was Chuck saying we were better off with Alex Smith > Peyton Manning.

        That still busts my fucking gut with rip-roaring stitches to this very moment.
        Alex Smith under center for our San Francisco Forty Niners is a better option than Peyton Manning likewise…

  11. Option A:
    Owner: 12th Man
    GM: Berger
    HC: Chuck
    OC: Nipper
    QB: Alex Smith

    Option B:
    Owner: Chuck
    GM: 12th man
    HC: Nipper
    OC: Berger
    QB: Alex Smith

    Option C:
    Owner: Berger
    GM: Chuck
    HC: 12th Man
    OC: Nipper
    QB: Alex Smith

    Option D:
    Owner: Nipper
    GM: 12th Man
    HC: Berger
    OC: Chuck
    QB: Alex Smith

    Option E:
    Owner: Nipper/Berger/12th Man/chuck
    GM: Nipper/Berger/12th Man/Chuck
    HC: Nipper/Berger/12th Man/Chuck
    OC: Nipper/Berger/12th Man/Chuck
    QB: Andrew Luck

    The obvious answer is option E:

    I could take you four mooks and dig a ditch and cover you with lye and find a former owner, GM, HC and OC to come out of retirement and I’d still have Andrew Luck as my QB. You’d still have Alex Smith.

    I win. You lose.

  12. unca_chuck says:

    RT, you nailed it. I thought bakken was spitty but stopped giving a fuck after he left. He posted here for 2 days and immediately ran to skeebs blog. Since I had already deleted Skabies hemorrhoid from my blog roll , the jump was not intuitive at all.

    Ergo, busted again!


    • rtfirefly says:

      Fuuny thing is, I LIKE Spitty since he sobered up. I hated his guts before. I understand why Reno wants nothing to do with him, I wouldn’t either in his shoes. I think it’s too bad you won’t let him back, although he’s sounded a lot more Dennis-end-of-the-world-esque this year.

  13. unca_chuck says:

    Oh Dennis, go fuck yourself. Go fuck a duck. You can’t sit in a fucking chair and not get hurt so don’t say anything about anything. Jesus, just shut up and fuck off. what happened to you? You used to be funny, now you are a humorless dick.

    • Nipper says:

      Perhaps he’s wearing Depends. Life is a bitch.

      • I know I can be an asshole, at times, on these blogs. but you ask anyone who knows me and they’d tell ya Dennis would give ya the shirt off his back and the last dollar to his name if you needed it.

        Seriously. WTF am I going to do with more money? Until the first guy who comes back from the dead and tells us we were wrong this entire time…”You *can* take it with you.” My plan is to piss away every last goddamn red-cent to my name while I’m still here.

        If I get hit by a bus tomorrow? Mission accomplished.

  14. unca_chuck says:

    I didn’t minds spitty until he forced me to shut him down. He was hell -bent (and he good and goddamn well knows it) on getting banned and I did what he wanted. Simple as that.

  15. Nipper says:

    Meanwhile on the “other” blog …….Bullit is ripping this blog up and down and sideways with his buddy bakkentom. Perhaps Bullit is yaking with himself in an attempt to hold on to his sanity.

  16. unca_chuck says:

    The Alson Smith signing is yet another case of the NFL turning a deaf ear to what the greater public thinks about football players and the perception that they live above the law.

  17. unca_chuck says:

    $8 mill for Smith. Wow. Give him 4 chances and he fucks up again and gets $8 mill?

    . Good job Jolly Roger. You’ve become less than useless.

    • rtfirefly says:

      They need to help him with his blatantly obvious alcoholism. If, and it’s a big if, he can get a grip on it, he can still make the HOF. Favre was a bigtime opiate addict, and that’s as bad as alcohol in addiction terms.

    • rtfirefly says:

      That’s why I’m willing to give Johhny Football another chance, BTW. All early indications are that he’s doing everything right. In the one Browns game I saw this preseason, he really looked like a franchise QBOTF. Whether Aldon’s willing and smart enough to go through all that is an entirely different story.

  18. Nipper says:

    Meanwhile on the “other” blog, in the wee morning hours while Skeebers is pounding his pillow, V is trashing the place with his special brand of lunacy. Yes sir, it’s an asylum over there.

  19. Berger says:

    My 2nd favorite team this year is the Colts because Frank Gore and Andrew Luck are there. Unfortunately they have Chuck Pagano. It is no secret he is on the hot seat. That is a good thing, he should be.

  20. Berger says:

    RT, I don’t believe Balking Tom and Bullit (sic) are the same. I’m not guaranteeing that. The way Bullit (sic) lies you never know for sure. He definitely lies more than any person I have ever blogged with.

  21. Berger says:

    I believe the NFL should not discipline off field issues. It is a league that was formed to play football. It was not formed to teach America morals. If a player gets in trouble with the law and can’t play he should not be paid. If he can play he should and be paid. All the NFL is doing is opening itself up to be targets for special interest groups. I say play football and let the courts adjudicate. On field issues are different. Fines for late hits and deflating football are on field issues. BYW, IMO Brady was fined and suspended for not cooperating more than anything else.

    I would not have cut Aldon Smith, I would have let him go through the process and get put in jail if that is what happens. If I had to guarantee his contract for the entire year for being on the team for opening day I might have cut him. I would not want to pay a player 9 million for being in jail. I don’t know what those circumstances were but money aside, I would not have cut Smith.

  22. Berger says:

    Chuck- I’ve got a post in the spam filter.

  23. Berger says:

    What is going on at Texa$$? Mack Strong has changed OCs after one game and according to Reece Davis on ESPN radio, the alumni are starting to call for his head if he doesn’t step up his recruiting. Texa$$ is probably the most money hungry of all schools. They just hired this coach one year ago. Relax.

  24. snarkk says:

    The greater threat to the NFL long term is not discipline and criminality in the ranks, but demographics. I heard on the radio the other day that pee wee and youth football rosters are way way down. It’s the concussion thing. As more info comes out, and it will, this is the real danger to the future of the NFL — fewer bodies will be playing football at all levels to supply the player pipeline…

  25. unca_chuck says:

    Don’t miss St Jim’s hitotionics on the sidelines. He comes unglued over obvious penalties.

  26. 12th Man says:

    Squawks signed Moody to their PS.

  27. rtfirefly says:

    Pillars hit ‘im and Jim Stuckey got the ball! Yes, it’s that time of year again.

    (It’s only most of the 2nd half for you without it on DVD or anything. I have it on VHS like I still have a VCR – at least I can stare at the tape cartridge. Sooner or later, youtube will black this out cuz the NFL’s a monstrosity.)

    This time Lucy didn’t pull the ball away.

  28. rtfirefly says:

    Seen from another angle, here’s the whole game (I think).

  29. NJ49er says:

    Berger with regard to Aldon being released.
    I can’t help but go back to the situation with Leonard Little and the Rams many years ago.
    Granted, Aldon hasn’t killed anyone. Yet.
    For a talented guy that is fighting demons in his personal life, it only seems a matter of time before he self-destructs.
    His resumé of poor judgement events was hard to ignore

    I believe Baalke made several attempts to protect him from himself.
    There appeared to be a good faith effort, on both sides, to keep him in the fold as well.
    Whatever took place to create the separation is unfortunate.
    IMO, if Baalke had quit on him, a trade attempt may have been made a year ago, when his value was much more obvious.

    I’m also of the opinion that Brady’s successful challenge to Goodell’s punishment practices weakened any potential influence he might seek against Aldon now as well.
    Many of us thought Aldon’s 9 game suspension last year was excessive and, may have created the thought that he’d get hit even harder after the recent transgressions.
    Now, Goodell may be inclined to take an about face on potential punishment?

    We’ll see what comes soon enough.
    Aldon is on a 1yr deal so, if there’s anything left in terms of a relationship in SF, he could be available as a FA next year.
    Assuming he cleans up his life between now and then.

    • rtfirefly says:

      NJ, the CBA is pretty clear on drug/alcohol issues. I doubt Aldon will have a case, even with Goodie weakened.

      • NJ49er says:

        I don’t disagree RT.
        Just that the timing of Aldon’s signing seemed a bit odd, in relationship to Brady’s successful appeal.

        Sure, there’s a good chance Oakland won’t have his services, if/when the CBA portion of this topic is determined.
        Calculated risk on Oakland’s part I’m sure.

        Another guy I put in the same conversation is Donté Stallworth.
        He managed to turn a DUI vehicular death into a misdemeanor of sorts by writing a check.
        Some of these guys are out of control yet, they skirt serious punishment, by virtue of being NFL athletes, with lots of protection available to them in the Court of Law.

      • NJ49er says:

        The League has got to be just a little wary of any added appeals too.
        Goodell isn’t looking too confident in his decisions regarding punishments in recent years.
        His boat is taking on water, so to speak.

      • rtfirefly says:

        High risk, high reward. If Aldon’s just a punk with or without alcohol, there’s no hope. If not, AND he can stop drinking, he would be well worth the risk. He’s a perennial Pro Bowler or should be.

  30. Berger says:

    NJ- I’ll read your shit tomorrow. At this point anything you say just sounds like another Democrat. Your advice is usually teacheristic Democrat.

  31. Nipper says:

    On the “other” blog you guys would be inmates of the Skeebers asylum. On this blog you’re respected members of the community.

  32. unca_chuck says:

    Crabs with a nice send-off to his previous coach. . .

    “With all the stuff going on on the other side, it just feels so good to be on this side.” He already was on record last year questioning the play calling.

    He’ll be the #3 with Oakland. Wait til he’s not catching passes for the Raiders. He talks a great game yet hardly backs it up

  33. unca_chuck says:

    Bullshit call there. Seattle’s like looks shakey.

    Yet again, these calls should be reviewable. Huge call that there’s no recourse for.

  34. unca_chuck says:

    Funny how pedestrian RW looks without an O line.

  35. rtfirefly says:

    Best Pass of the Year: Nick Foles with a two handed push pass while he’s being sacked on third down in Seahawk territory. First Down! Too bad they fumbled the ball away on the very next play.

    • rtfirefly says:

      That fumble, with the score tied in the 4th, is looking like the decisive play. Instead of the Rams up by at least 3, they’re down 7 with 2:00 left.

  36. Alex Smith has thrown three TDs today.

    I’ll give ya three guesses how many have gone to a WR.

  37. snarkk says:

    Rams look for real, or SHawks down a notch this season. Probably both…

  38. rtfirefly says:

    Wow! Seattle corner beaten like a pup. 37 yd. straight down the field TD pass from Foles and the corner wasn’t even in the same zip code. Tied up at 31 with 0:53 left.

  39. Lurker John says:

    Hawks have received the benefit of a couple of questionable calls in this game, both of them huge imo.

  40. unca_chuck says:

    Rams just lost Sims. Looks like an achilles. If the Rams hold on to the ball, they are up 13.

  41. Lurker John says:

    It’s amazing how interested you become in a team after watching Hard Knocks.

  42. Lurker John says:

    Pete “The Fuck” Carroll just got burned by his ill-advised onside kick attempt. Lambs score a TD and it’s over.

  43. Lurker John says:

    Wow. I swear the Seahawks have the refs in their back pocket.

  44. Lurker John says:

    NFL officials have way too much impact on the modern game. It takes away from what is otherwise a great sport.

  45. rtfirefly says:

    Holy Onside Kick Batman! Seahawks try and fail to start OT. Rams start out at midfield. Refs call it a kick down into the ground and then popped up and an invalid fair catch???????? Someone’s on the take! HOLY SUCK CALL BATMAN! OK, they’ve got it right now. Non-reviewable – that’s gotta change!

  46. Lurker John says:

    Wow, beautiful ball by Foles.

  47. Lurker John says:

    Me thinks the 49ers are going to have trouble with the Rams this year. 6 sacks on Wilson so far today and tough on a good running team. With the Niner’s Swiss cheese OL, CK could take a major beating against these guys.

  48. rtfirefly says:

    Seahawk O just destroying the Rams now. 18 pts in the 4th and they’re marching now. Doesn’t look good for the Rams despite the 3 pt. OT lead.

  49. Rooting against SEA when playing STL is counter-productive. You know the Seahawks are going to get their wins. The Rams not so much.

    It’s like rooting against the Dodgers when they’re playing a potential WC team the Giants need to beat out. It’s in the Giants’ best interest if LA beats that team.

    You suck it up, and ROOT, ROOT, ROOT for the DODGERS!

  50. Lurker John says:


  51. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. That’s the Rams winning their last 3 of 4 at home vs Seattle.

  52. rtfirefly says:

    Stopped ’em!!!! NoFear called it.

    • unca_chuck says:

      His first prediction ever. Unles you count the one 5 years ago where he said the Niners would finish somewhere between 6-10 and 10-6.

      Really going out on a limb there, NoFear. Then again the Rams have won 3 of their last 4 vs Seattle at home.

      Tell ya though, I think the Rams got the better of the Foles/Bradford deal.

      • rtfirefly says:

        Well, the Niners and Cards have to lose yet for NF to be completely right.

        Foles is now 18-3 in his last 21 starts. Seriously.

  53. unca_chuck says:

    Wow, Del, you need attention that bad?

    Pathetic. Put us out of your misery, please.

  54. Jameis Winston’s first NFL pass…

    I hope he at least got a side of crab legs to go with it.

  55. snarkk says:

    This division early on looks up for grabs. Rams are for real. Let’s see how Niners do against a pretty good squad Monday night, could they possibly compete for the division title? NFC West definitely a bruising division again…

  56. unca_chuck says:

    Hmmm, guess Harbaugh was the problem after all. Or Indy sucks on defense.

    The Rams have a very fast defense. They will be a handful.

    • rtfirefly says:

      Rex has been saying that the Bills HAD a QB; there”s no controversy there. One game, we’ll see, but Rex has a way of making good teams really good. That defense he walked into must be a dream come true for him.

  57. rtfirefly says:

    Tale of the top 2 picks in their 1st NFL qtr. Mariota 2 TD passes, one for 52 and one for 12. Winston 1 Pick-6 26 yds. Wonder what the 2nd qtr. will bring?

  58. NJ49er says:

    Early observation on my part.
    Frank joined with a better QB perhaps but, both Indy and NOLA still have no D

  59. rtfirefly says:

    Winston 5 yd. TD pass! One for them, one for us – welcome to the NFL rook.

  60. NJ49er says:

    Answer for us seems to be, up tempo/faster pace.
    If we can do that, we can compete IMO.

  61. rtfirefly says:

    Carr looks bad starting his sophomore season. Raiders D is still a sieve. One draft and Aldon away…

  62. Nipper says:

    Meanwhile on the “other” blog ……Bullit and his buddies are watching NFL ball with their hot water bottles and warm pink blankets. Thumbs are placed firmly in place. The Asylum is at peace waiting for tomorrow’s Monday Night FOOTBALL!

  63. rtfirefly says:

    The Raider personal foul penalties used to fire up a great team. Now they’re shooting down a potentially good team.

  64. unca_chuck says:

    Raiders D is non-existent, The O is awful. What happened to Carr?

    Wonder how Crabs feels now.

    • rtfirefly says:

      Carr injured his throwing hand stiff arming a guy. He was scrambling for a first near midfield on a third down. His body made the first, but when he hurt whatever he hurt, he fumbled out of bounds short of a first. McCown came in for a fourth and short. Big mistake, it was only 10-0 at the time. Bengals went down and scored on the short field and now again. It’s over.

    • rtfirefly says:

      Earlier Carr overthrew an open Crabs on a third down. Crabs will see the difference.

      • Winder says:

        It’s only the 1st game. The Raiders should be better than last year, time will tell. We will know more about Crabs as soon as his first injury hits.

  65. Winder says:

    It is definitely going to be a tough road in our division once again. Just have to wait and see what the Niners are gonna do. I think we will be faster on D and hopefully more creative on O. The Vikes will be a good challenge for our Dline and we shall see what our piecework Oline can do.

  66. rtfirefly says:

    Good call by an anonymous fan: why, after the Ram fair catch in OT, wasn’t a personal foul called on the Seahawks for TWO guys hitting the receiver???
    Instead, a penalty was called on the Rams, later reversed. At least one if not more ref was totally in the bag for the Seahawks.

  67. unca_chuck says:

    Crabs 0 catches 0 yards. Stevie Wonder gets a TD.

    Seattle’s pass defense looks a lot weaker without Chancellor.

    • rtfirefly says:

      Nah, he got 1 for 10 yds. and a FD with a nice catch. I could’ve sworn I saw it, so I had to look it up after seeing your post.

  68. rtfirefly says:

    Marcus Mariota: 12 of 15 passing, 4 TDs 0 Ints, 158.3 passer rating. Do you think anyone on the Bucs is saying right around now, “Uh, fellas….?”

    Nah, they’re the Bucs. That’s why it’s 42-7 Titans.

  69. snarkk says:

    Niners may lose this first game tomorrow night. But, if Kap actually completes a screen pass, or they execute a draw play for positive yardage, it’ll be a positive game for me…

  70. rtfirefly says:

    Both the Ravens and Broncs defenses have scored more points today than their offenses. LOL

    Crabs is the emergency QB if McCown gets hurt. But losing 30-0, why risk injury to him? Put in a running back if necessary.

  72. rtfirefly says:

    Cards about to win. Seahawks in dead last.

  73. rtfirefly says:

    Geez, I just now saw that the Chargers came back to knock off the Lions, who I thought were on the verge of greatness. I stopped even paying attention to the game at 21-3. I guess the Lions miss Suh more than I thought they would.

  74. rtfirefly says:

    This is awesome. Complete domination by the Cowpokes, their offense marching up and down the field. TOP off the charts. 10-6 Giants with a good chance for more before half.

  75. rtfirefly says:

    Just wow, what can you say? 4 pts. just handed to the Cowturds by the refs. Pass interference in the endzone when the CB didn’t so much as lay a finger on the receiver.
    It’s plays like that one, and memories of the Lions playoff game last year also in Dallas that make me wonder if the NFL isn’t really professional wrestling.

  76. rtfirefly says:

    Why do the refs bother calling penalties? Why not just announce to the crowd, “Dallas is too far behind so we’ve decided to add 4 pts. to the scoreboard in their favor. The league stands by Jerry Jones and the fine Dallas Cowboys organization.”

  77. Can’t speak for certain when it comes to NJ, but the whole goddamn lot of you would rather have Kap > Tony Romo. Shit. You mooks would favor Alex Smith > a great bowl of clam chowder.

    And as I finish my sentence…

      Del I’m still hoping the ceiling is higher than the floor for Kaep.
      Haven’t given up on him by any means but, I don’t see him looking too comfortable with his feet yet.
      See what he shows us tomorrow night.

  78. rtfirefly says:

    Giants regretting not punching it in with 1st and goal from the 1. Cowpukes gonna win this by a great Romo last second drive. Scheist. I hate the Cowboys.

  79. If any, ANY, of you would raise their hand and say they’d still prefer Alex or Kap > Romo…

    well, someone with a cleaner ability to fire a riffle and put *you* out of their misery would have done so long before now.


  80. NJ49er says:

    Looks like Suh is facing yet another review of unsportsmanlike conduct after 1 game with his new team.
    What a headcase.


    And while you’re there – Aldon’s situation may gain some attention this week as well –


  81. NJ49er says:

    Seems Dez Bryant broke a bone in his foot tonight?
    Not gonna bode well for Mr Romo if his primary weapon goes down for any length of time.

  82. NJ49er says:

    Also seeing a report that DE Randy Gregory could miss 4-6 weeks for the ‘Boys with an ankle injury.
    Rough opening week in Big Duh, and elsewhere, around the League today.
    Suggs done for the year in Baltimore too. BIG Ouch there for their D.

  83. Winder says:

    I’m with you NJ, Fuck the Dallas Cowfucks.

    • NJ49er says:

      Winder I can respect some of their Star players over the years, (Emmitt certainly was/is a class act) but, I’ve acquired an affliction to flip off Jerruh whenever his pastie white face invades my television screen.

      Can’t stand Michael Irvin either.
      By and large, Jerruh is a DICK.
      Therefore, I despise “Columbia’s” Team with a vengeance.

  84. Berger says:

    Let’s see, do I take old Tony Romo or young Kap? I think Romo is about a 10 year vet with one play-off win despite having some really good teams. Kap is in his 4th or 5th year with 5 or 6 play-off wins and would have won a Super Bowl if the coach doesn’t call a time out. Hmmmm! I’ll go with Kap.

  85. Berger says:

    What was Eli doing making a rookie mistake? Worse yet, what kind of play calling was that from the coach. When Eli went back to pass I started to look for Jim Harbaugh on the sidelines. The giants could have run 40 more seconds off the clock but elected to outsmart themselves instead. When I see play ailing like that I have to wonder what low standards it must take for the job. And then a veteran QB throws it away instead of intentionally taking the sack when nobody was open? They deserved to lose.

  86. NJ49er says:

    Happy Opening Day Boys!
    My flag goes up before Kick Off
    Let’s hope we’ve found some Offense in the Red Zone
    Hope it’s a successful start tonight

    Can’t wait to see what they’ve cooked up!
    The 2015 Season is on! 😀

  87. Berger says:

    It is only one game so probably a little early to tell but so far Roman is looking OK as an OC which means the problem on offense was Harbaugh. I always said we need to get rid of Roman to see if it was Roman or Harbaugh. I’m not going to say yet but early indications are it was Harbaugh.

  88. NJ49er says:

    This is for you Rob!!!!!!!!

    Go 9ers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀

  89. Berger says:

    I would think there has to be an idiot out there somewhere who saw Lynch get stuffed on 4th and 1 to end the game and tell us how last year’s pass play at the end of the game was not such a bad call. You just know some idiot had to say it.

  90. Berger says:

    Seems to me all the teams in the NFC West have bad offensive lines and good defensive lines. That should sure make for high powered offenses, NOT. Expect for some sloppy games in the division.

  91. unca_chuck says:

    Dennis your mom raised an idiot.

    Fuck you,dumb ass. Mr October won a game? Yay! May Preston Riley shit on your head for all eternity.

    You are the worst fan ever. Give it up, pal.

  92. unca_chuck says:

    I assumed the boys lost after the fumbled TD return. Oh well. There’s plenty of time to choke before the playoffs. Right delmer dumbass?

  93. Berger says:

    One more thing about Romo. It is rare to see a QB with that much time in the pocket to throw. When you see a QB just standing there untouched it looked like a Tom Brady game. Difference between the two, Brady blows out the Giants and Romo squeaks one out. For me, the credit goes more to the offensive line than Tony Romo.

    It is like last year when the 49ers played the Raiders. Carr had all day to throw and Kap was under siege. Of course Carr looked better.

  94. unca_chuck says:

    Good to see Jerry paying off the refs again. More hookers for Blandino?

  95. rob says:

    After your Kap vs.Romo post maybe you SHOULD punch yourself in the throat. Lol
    For sure you’re definitely fired as my GM .
    I Mean you were right about the whole Harbaugh vs. Manning thing but Jesus Christ man
    Oh and BTW man gimme a call sometime
