And So It Begins . . .

Vernon Davis is Casualty # 1 in the bloodletting. The 49ers traded him to Denver for a 6th and 7th next year, and a 6th in 2017. Normally this would be good news, but when you look at trent Baalke’s track record, well, al these picks he’s had haven’t netted enough to keep the team competitive. Especially on the offensive side of things. VD takes his stone hands and amazing speed off to Denver, where I’m sure he’ll provide Payton Manning with enough 12-15 yard passes to keep him happy.

Speaking of Trent, my biggest recent problem is, of course, running back. the Niners had, at one point, Carlos Hyde, LMJ, Kendall Hunter, Reggie Bush, Jarryd Hayne, Mike Davis, and a couple low-level draft picks. Well, Hunter signed an injury release, LMJ was cut, Hayne was recently cut, and we went from a plethora of guys to a minimal number. Hyde was getting dinged up before they let Hayne go. Hunter could have been PUPped, but they chose to chuck him to the scrap heap rather than wait the 6 weeks for his recovery.

The problem? Well, your #1 backup RB is Reggie Bush. A 30 year old guy who isn’t exactly Ironman. He’s more like Crystal Todd (for you oldsters out there). To exacerbate the problem, you just cut your nominal punt returner in Jarryd Hayne. So, your backup RB is now your primary PR. Your primary PR, who was your 3rd strong RB, is now gone. Bush of course already hit the IR with a calf strain after his 2nd rush of the season. So, Mr Durable is now your starting RB as well as your PR. What could go wrong?

Exactly. Nice work Trent.  or all the talk of Jed fucking the team over, one needs to scrutinize the job Trent Baalke has(n’t) done in recent drafts.  I said the bullseye would be squarely on Trent’s forehead if the team cratered, but he seems to be doing a masterful job of deflecting everything wrong with the team to Harbaugh’s guy Colin Kaepernick.

Problem there is Jed believes him. Might as well start Gabby Gabbertson and let the hilarity reach an all-time high. As in Jimmy-Hat fun times. Troy Davis, anyone?

. . . sigh . . .

Frankly, this year will be interesting only in the fact that they don’t look to do much winning. I’d better start watching more Cal games. this team needs to draft a QB and 5 offensive linemen.

    And in more exciting news, the 49ers signed Shaun Draughn (yes, THAT Shaun Draughn) to be our new RB.

  2. rob says:

    Not real happy with the trade. When you’re in our position I’d like to keep what good players we do have left. I’d have been happier with a 4th instead if two sixes

  3. rob says:

    Omg we used the sixth overall pick on Davis and all we have to show for it is a sixth rounder

    • 12th Man says:

      He is 35 and declining Rob, what did you think they would get?
      Niners get a 6th but give a 7th to the Broncos this year and a 6th next year. Not much huh.

  4. rtfirefly says:

    I posted this on the intermediate “non” thread.

    Chuck, Manning was very, very good. He hit his first long ball of the year amongst other achievements. Aaron Rodgers threw for 77 yards. Yes, the Denver D is that good. Their front 4 with or without blitizes was chasing him up and down, all around the whole game. When Rodgers did buy time with his feet, his receivers were blanketed.

  5. rtfirefly says:

    We actually swapped a 6th rounder for a 7th rounder, and Denver tossed in a 6th rounder next year.

    The net effect is we moved our 7th rounder this year up about 10-15 spots (very high 7th to very low 6th) and we have an extra 6th next year. Might as well have just handed VD to Denver gratis.

  6. unca_chuck says:

    All I can say is at least we got something.

    He was gone at he end of the year anyway.

    Happy trails.

    • rtfirefly says:

      Now we need to trade Boone to move that new 6th up about 10-15 spots and pick up another 2017 6th rounder in the process. Boone’s a goner too.

  7. rob says:

    On the good side Hayne cleared waivers
    On the bad Hyde might need surgery. Omfg

  8. Nipper says:

    This place is better than a soap opera for sports. Everything is going to hell in a hand basket.

  9. unca_chuck says:

    Like Jerry said, might as well enjoy the ride.

  10. 12th Man says:

    Hayne to the PS

    • rtfirefly says:

      My Niners are a joke. We have Draughn who nobody wants. We have Gaskins (undrafted out of U. of Richmond) who made 1/3 the yds./carry that Hayne did in similar work. We have no punt returner.
      The Jed and Trent Show – rotten shame the Niners can’t move to L.A. and the Raiders move into a new stadium on the site of Candlestick – swap names, the whole Browns/Ravens thing proves franchise shifts can happen.

      • Lurker John says:

        The running stats the Niners put yesterday are mind-boggling. That’s just as bad as it gets.

  11. Lurker John says:

    It’s hard to say that with a straight face, “Rodgers threw for 77 yards.”

  12. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, there’s no joy in Indy this year as well. Wonder why Luck forgot how to QB this year.

  13. Del Mar Dennis says:

    The Colin Kaepernick era is officially over: Gabbert to start Sunday.

    As much as Gabbert sucks I guarantee you the O will perform better Sunday with him under center. That’s how bad #7stormscoming has played this season. Kap couldn’t even produce a drop of rain in a goddamn El Nino year.

  14. Irish Kevin says:

    Del would you like to share where you read that drivel? Or are you just spreading rumors?

  15. unca_chuck says:

    I think this is a bad move, but really all they have to lose are games. And their QB.

    It certainly won’t get better.

    Gabby is 5-22 as a starter. He’s the savior.

  16. unca_chuck says:

    Wonder if the Panthers are going to turtle up and run 3 times. All they need to do is get a couple first downs.

  17. rtfirefly says:

    I think I want the deck chairs….hmmm…..brown! Until I change my mind and want them blue again. (Don’t pay any attention to those nasty, vicious iceberg rumors.)

  18. unca_chuck says:

    Crazy game. Panthers did their defense no favors with that last 3 and out.

  19. unca_chuck says:

    Luck nearly throws a pick on the last play.

  20. unca_chuck says:

    Ted Ginn with a familiar site . . . dropping the game-winning TD.

  21. unca_chuck says:

    Luck with another pick and Indy loses . . . 3-5 and in 1st place.

  22. unca_chuck says:

    Well, let’s hear it for the Warriors. Another playoff opponent from last year, and they are up by FORTY with 7 miniutes left in the 4th,

  23. snarkk says:

    They had to try Gabbert. Surprised though that they did not wait until after the bye. Must be some locker room crap driving the change sooner. I don’t know how Gabbert will do, and it really doesn’t matter much, this team is going down the dumper. But, a bit more respectable trip down the dumper might be nice. Push for the #1 pick, but this time, don’t pick another Alex Smith. VD gone and won’t be missed — 6th or 7th round pick in return — whatever…

  24. Lurker John says:

    Blake Bell can now get a better look. He looks like a talented TE. And yes, it was time to sit Kap. It doesn’t mean he’s done in SF, but what the team is doing with him now just isn’t working.

  25. Lurker John says:

    Championship hangover? What championship hangover? Hold the Griz to 69 pts, win by 50. Holy smokes.

  26. 12th Man says:

    The niners would usually have kept which QB would play on Sunday secret until an hour before kickoff. Instead they announced the benching the day before the trade deadline….

    Kap is a talented guy with some shortcomings playing behind this line:

    2015 PFF Run Blocking Grades:
    Boone: -8.9 (79th of 80 Guards)
    Martin: -22.0 (35 of 35 C)
    Devey: -7.3 (78 of 80 G)
    Pears: -13.7 (78 of 78 T)

    As has been said, fix the line and most of the QB problems go away but they didn’t/couldn’t so Kap, who is far from blameless too, carries the can.

    Gabbert may or may not do better but they need to evaluate him since Kap is likely done with the Niners.

  27. 12th Man says:

    Ken Whisenhunt fired by the Titans. He was a good OC for the Chargers in 2013. Chryst should be looking over his shoulder during the bye.

  28. 12th Man says:

    Broncos are shopping for a LT, keep an eye on Staley today.

  29. rob says:

    Omg gabbert is starting kap is benched

  30. unca_chuck says:

    Like I said, ROB, all this will prove (Gabby starting) is how bad the team is. Will we run and block better for Gabby? Not likely but you never know.

    Atlanta isn’t the defensive powerhouse that the rest of the teams in our division are, but I don’t see this outcome much better.

  31. unca_chuck says:

    49ers sign ex-Saint RB Pierre Thoimas. Dumpster diving at its finest.

    And they hope to get Kaepernick back on the field in 2 weeks.

  32. unca_chuck says:

    ROB, we need a GM before we start talking coaches.

  33. Nipper says:

    This is the most rapid decline I can remember of an on the field team. Right now they’re unwatchable no matter who plays QB. Throw in the injuries and man it’s getting real UGLY!

  34. rob says:

    imo pierre Thomas was a good signing

  35. rtfirefly says:

    Think we’ll pick up Joseph Randle? He has about 305 yards and 4 TDs more this season than Kendall Gaskins. Oops, pending domestic violence thing going on, plus shoplifting last year (?), I’d joke about losing with class, but I’m a no fly zone with domestic violence. Seems pretty hypocritical of Jerruh, though, considering how much he’s been kissing Greg Hardy’s ass.

  36. Winder says:

    I’m just waiting to see how much the FO try’s to duck and dodge responsibility for this season, it should be interesting. If they try and use the injury card heavily then you know they are not carrying the load on their shoulders.

  37. unca_chuck says:

    Winder, they’ve already found their scapegoat in Kaepernick.

    It’ll buy Baalke another year more than likely.

  38. unca_chuck says:

    If Gabby Gabbertson craters, well, they’ll go back to Kaepernick and play out the string.

  39. unca_chuck says:

    Hah! He’s hanging with Nate Davis.

    Ken Whizenhunt was canned by the 1-5 Titans. I wonder when Pagano gets the axe.

    Tomsula stays because the front office is putting this season on Kaepernick.

    • rtfirefly says:

      Troy is a FA after one year in the CFL (cut after one year of three year contract).
      Nate’s still playing ball with Amarillo about 170 miles from me. He’s had a lot of success in Texas Indoor.

  40. unca_chuck says:

    BakkenBullitt thinks Gabbert is a viable alternative. He and his 5-22 record.

    Cutting Kaepernick is brilliant. Bullitt must work for the 49ers with that kind of brain power. We always did call him company boy.

  41. rtfirefly says:

    Kappy made his bed the day he diddled Aldon’s ex. It’s been all downhill since then and he’ll be gone before next season. I thought he might be traded to the Jets or the Texans, but it’s too late now. We won’t get anything for him when he leaves.

  42. rtfirefly says:

    We still have to get rid of Bowman and Staley. Then we’ll have completed the destruction of the last Niners Super Bowl team.

  43. 12th man says:

    Pagano survives for now. Pep Hamilton the OC got fired

  44. kappy49 says:

    I been a Kaepernick fan since Harbaugh made him a starter but this decision to bench him was right on. I read both Skeebers and Unca_chuck’s blog for years now but never posted and I must say after observing both blog’s both sites I’ve seen unconditional love for the 49ers that would never waver and a team none of you would ever criticized. Del Mar was the only one rightfully critiquing this horrible ownership. No Fear? Please that guy plays it safe in the middle and that drives any sane man crazy when a fan plays it both ways. I take Unca-Chuck any day of the week at least I know no matter what he’ll back the team even if Jed came out and admitted he didn’t care. Oh sure Skeebers and his clones have jumped ship this year but that didn’t take intelligence to figure that out after Harbaugh left and Jed hired Tomsula as his replacement. I don’t know which was worst the Singletary hiring or Tomsula? Like Phil Simms said, “ This ownership hired Harbaugh moved the team, got the stadium deal completed and now they went back to their old ways” So now it’s all up to you to either figure out we have no chance to win the Super Bowl with this ownership or do you continue to believe? Is the fan base really this out of touch with the rest of the world? The jig is up, the cat is out of the bag, this ownership doesn’t give a rats ass about winning so well soon see who the passive are compared to the vigilant who will no longer put up with this shit.

    The problem wasn’t Crabtree or Davis it was Kaepernick all along. Just signing a QB and throwing him all that money for accomplishing nothing shows a group of empty suits now runs our franchise. Just look at the hiring of Tomsula who had no head coaching credentials at all and Jed just removes Harbaugh when all he did to deserve to be fired was win.

    If I hear any of you start your rah rah crapola again I’m going to puke all over my computer screen and turn this site solid green. It’s over, until this ownership is removed we will continue to lose, it’s time for all of you to wise up.

  45. unca_chuck says:

    Geee, I wonder who that is. What about the escaped goats?

  46. unca_chuck says:

    How do we remove the ownership, Mr. Goat?

    Letters to the editor?

  47. 12th Man says:

    Well Gabbert up till now has been a dud as a pro. Has he gained confidence and poise since he last saw a meaningful game? I read some want him to flop and some expect him to do well. I don’t have an opinion as yet, we haven’t seen him other than pre-season where he did well against the All-Walmart teams.
    I know one thing, I am rooting for him to do well since he is the starting QB of the Niners. No reflection on Kap who I think has had it rough this year but whoever the QB is I will support 100%

  48. kappy49 says:

    Ahhh, stop-attending games, purchasing merchandise and watching this nightmare continue. Then and only then will this ownership get the message. If no message of displeasure is given what will stop this downfall and utter destruction? If no ones held responsible for these disastrous conclusions what will ever change?

    It’s up to the fan to be smart and diligent and with overpowering force of unity will our fate in society change. It’s like a guy pointing a gun at your face threatening to kill you. If you make excuses why he’s pointing that gun at your face who’s to blame? Who’s ever held responsible? Backing a brand that you love even though a deceitful demon is now running the show only show’s stupidity and the allowance for the tragedy to continue on.

    Like Rich Gannon just said about Kaepernick, “I don’t see anything that will change, there’s nothing that he can learn that will help him, the planting of his feet to his vision and mechanics nothing that he can learn will ever make him great” Sound familiar? Alex Smith maybe? This all took place while most of you stood by and actually thought we had a chance to win. Look at Carr in Oakland, he’s playing great with enormous potential can you imagine next year and the year after that? This doesn’t take beefed up intelligence to figure right and wrong moves or if a player will be good or bad, it just takes common sense and someone seeing things for what they really are and not putting up with this ongoing BS that shown right in front of their very eyes.

    • 12th Man says:

      Feel free to do what you want V, nobody is stopping you or preaching to you how to behave towards the Niners or feel about the team or any of its component parts.

      As to your sage and repetitive advice, you can shove it. I will support the team how I see fit and no semi-illiterate blog blowhard will sway me one iota.

      So ends our exchange for the day. Have at it dumbass.

  49. unca_chuck says:

    Bullshit. Utter bullshit, V. That will take 10-15 years if it takes a day. Even then, there’s nothing the fans can do to force an ownership change. Media pressure and empty seats never stopped Modell, jerry Jones, or the Bidwells from selling. Only death. Even then the kids carry on. Look at Halas and the McCaskeys. The last bastion of kingdoms in America are football teams.

    Sorry pal. Keep whining though. Hey, Eddie struck gold with Walsh. Maybe lightning will strike twice and his nephew will find someone. Shit, they should lure Scotty McDrinksalot back. He’s the one that built the team in the first place. Harbaugh lucked into a stocked franchise. Much like the diff between Mark Jackson and Steve Kerr. I’ll see if you can make the metal leap I just proferred.

  50. unca_chuck says:

    The Rooneys in Pittsburgh and many others. Ownership change is fairly rare in football circles.

  51. 12th Man says:

    Cowell on Kap:

    I think he has it right. Lots of mitigating factors we all see for ourselves but the bottom line is Kap can’t perform in these circumstances.

  52. Winder says:

    Jed isn’t going anywhere, but he will have to change the way things run. He has so much money that no matter what he does he will probably continue to rake it in. If he truly loves the franchise like he has said in the past he is gonna have to get out of his own way and let some football people run this thing. V does have a couple of valid points in that public pressure, the acknowledgment of incompetence, and the embarrassment of the franchise just might do the trick. The problem that I see in the future is bringing in qualified people. I am still one of the people that was glad to see Harbaugh go but at that time I thought we would bring in some offensive minded people. However, after seeing the way we’ve played so far I tend to think we just don’t have the talent on the team to do squat. And, that I put to much on the coaching, but at the time that is what I saw. Anyway, Jed will have to convince some good football minds that he will stay in the corner and leave the football shit to the pros. First move should be to let baalke go, bring someone in now to evaluate while we are still playing and not wait to the fucking last minute.

    • 12th Man says:

      Sorry Winder but it would take some enormous mass exodus of fans who buy tix, attending or not, to make an impact on Jed or any owner. Plenty of franchises have sucked for decades and had low attendance with no discernible affect on the owners.

      I have a hard time believing Jed is sabotaging his own golden goose. Making poor decisions perhaps, but intentionally causing his team to implode?

      Talent has not played up to it’s pre-season expectations. Is that coaching, players or both? Hard to know. Kap has paid the first price which is a normal thing for any team sucking this badly on O, bench the QB.

      Next will be the OC if not the HC if it doesn’t show improvement. Tomsula has the weight of the world on his shoulders at these pressers. He may be in over his head but again, it’s hard to know for sure.

      Baalke, for all the second guessing after the fact, has done an above average job in gathering talent. Is it enough to give him time to turn it around? My guess is he gets another year.

      • Lurker John says:

        Good synopsis and my general take as well. I tend to avoid the conspiratorial and stay with what we know. The Niner front office has strung together a series of bad decisions, but the idea that they are intentionally tanking the team seems far-fetched to me. If anything, York has to have pride and presiding over a shit franchise can’t be doing his ego any good. I’m sure he’d much rather be boasting about putting together a Super Bowl winner.

        My guess? He desperately wants to put a winner on the field but doesn’t know how, or, at least, doesn’t know how to work his way out of the present state of affairs. If he is going to make millions even if he puts a shit team on the field, then he’s going to make that much more if he fields a winner or, better yet, a champion.

        Occam’s Razor. The simplest answer tends to be the right one.

      • 12th Man says:

        That’s what makes sense to me too.

  53. kappy49 says:

    12th Man, I’m well aware that no change in our society will ever make you waver in your blind belief in anything. I’m also aware that if you can no longer tell a difference in the sport compared to the 60’s and 70’s it’s useless having an intelligent conversation with you. The NFL was allowed by fans just like you to completely change the sport, which the originators intended the sport to be. You stood by while they remove your balls, handed you parity, replace a man’s sport with Fantasy Football all to keep you still intrigued enough that you would continue watching and accept the change like a fool. You didn’t stop there after that Jed gave you Kaepernick who was the complete opposite type Quarterback that you should’ve been accustomed to given our great legacy we found wearing are colors was above, class, character and integrity to you.

    Unca_Chuck, why is it that not tolerating failure that’s nothing more than a criminal act set out only to fool the general public considered whining to you? What do we call a continued belief when no ones giving you anything to believe in? There is no Walsh out there once in a lifetime buddy but handing the reins over to someone with no winning credentials or winning record of any kind is the first sign that you don’t really care who’s the head coach of your football team. One should asks are you interested in winning or just finding someone who will listen to your every word and do what he’s told to do? All an intelligent fan can do is boycott and voice their displeasure. If you support a team, and then they lose their essence, their players, their style of playing, standards, principles and the aesthetics of the way the play for which you supported them at the very outset, after what time do you pull the plug and stop supporting the team? To answer that question if an ownership at least try’s to win then that’s all a fan could ask for but if it’s clearly obvious that the person doesn’t care support must be stopped. If you continue on nothing will ever change your only hope is the no tolerance approach and forcing the person to do what’s right or remove himself accordingly.

  54. unca_chuck says:

    That’s the rub. As much as Jed, or Eddie, or any other owner professes he wants to do, hiring the riight guy to do the actual football work is the key. Jerry Jerk-o has been his own worst (GM) emeny for quite a while now.

    Passing on Johnny Eightball was the first sign of normalcy in that organization in decades.

  55. unca_chuck says:

    Wow, V, easy to blame your problems on everyone else, you pussy. You fucking maggot.

    Why didn’t you stop the pussifucation of the NFL? Huh? Where were you when all these changes went down?

    Pussy. Chickenshit. Escaped retard. Blah blah blah. If winning in the NFL was so easy, everyone would be doing it. Even glory teams have down times.

    For all the blame you cast around, your are equally guilty, so shut the fuck up about it already.

    God you are fucking retarded. Sorry, pal. But we don’t sit on the rules committees or own teams. Get the fuck over it. Joe retired. Bill died. Eddie fucked up.

    These are the facts. Read them. Accept them. Shut the fuck up forever about it.

  56. 12th Man says:

    Kilgore to start practicing after the bye, that is welcome news. Too late to help Gabbert against the Squawks.
    ST gunner McCray meniscus tear, had surgery Tuesday. Starting CB Acker and TE Celek in concussion protocol.
    These are major blows to an already injured team.
    Boldin with his hammy and Hyde with his foot.
    Pinion says he is OK.

    Team could use some good player news for a change.

  64. kappy49 says:

    Lurker John, Just one thing out of a million I can bring up. Anyone that looks up at the moon every night and knowing that it controls the earth’s tide and the fact that the Moon stabilizes our rotation and someone actually believes it just happened on it’s own is what’s really hard to believe.

  65. kappy49 says:

    Unca_chuck, The difference between these two men you mentioned is one did profess his love for the team and that’s why in a well calculated move he hired Walsh who had all the credentials one would ask for and that put the luck on Eddie’s side for success. Just promoting Singletary or a clown like Tomsula shows your egotistical and nothing more than a control freak who put’s his pampering pride above winning. Jerry Jones? He’s the same way that’s why Jimmy left because Jerry didn’t want to give him credit for anything. After that just like us no one but a puppet would ever coach there again. As far as where was I when this all went down? I was right here at least well aware of what was taking place, a huge difference compared to those who didn’t notice anything.

  66. kappy49 says:

    See Nipper now that was funny!!!

  67. kappy49 says:

    12th Man Look the difference between you and me other than me using simple common sense to assess every situation and you avoiding it like a plague is standing up and admitting you were wrong. See I have no problem admitting I was wrong because I’m a stand up guy with character and class. The rest of you when you end up being wrong come up with an excuse why you were wrong and that’s where the entire problem lies. This act of no credibility leads to turmoil because you just can’t admit you were wrong. When we call you out for being wrong you call us whiners. The rest of the reasoning you question our loyalty to the team is entire BS.

        I haven’t read anything there since last season and I can tell you right now what is being said and it’s the same shit lol.

        Update: Sir Spit is a Raiders fan now. He just likes them. Of course Skeebers doesn’t like anything and Bakkenpoop-Bullit claim they’re separate people. They hate Jed York and Baalke and blame everything and probably even global warming on those two.

    That’s how I posted now 12th.
    Problem here is, they’ve put clamps on personal device use as well.

    The real question that I can see is who really put us in this shithole. If Jed doesn’t act pretty soon and lets this clownshow continue then it looks like he’s the one. If that is the case we are in for a very long haul. But, if he gets off his ass and fires the guys that should go very soon, maybe, just maybe we can get out of this mess in a couple of years. All he has to do is act like he gives a shit and hire some real football people. The 49ers have a tradition that goes way beyond Mr. Jed and all he has to do is find the right guy to be GM and let him build the team back up.

    Yup. Jed can tweet his days away from his lux box. But until he realizes that the team’s problems start with Baalke, there’s little to be done. Harbaugh and trent had their pissing match last year and Baalke won. Baalke should be on the plank. He has shifted all blame to Kaepernick, though.

    The results this year speak for themselves. Granted, most GMs would have a problem filling the holes left from the aftermath of last year, but the biggest failure is to not get the offense going. Baalke has done little to upgrade the offense, and the coaching staff isn’t using the weapons obtained. Baalke also ignored the O line problems and we have the worst line in the league.

    Good luck, Gabby.

    I don’t think Gabby is gonna have very much fun this week. But maybe the blind squirrel theory will be put into play.

      Winder, I liken it to a really bad poker player in a new town playing against new guys. He might get lucky or he might just win because the other players don’t know his tells or his bluffing patterns. It might work for a game. Atlanta’s D isn’t all that hot. But Atlanta with their O, Seattle and AZ?.

    The ships going down and changing deck chairs will not make up for the leaky lifeboats. The water is icy and the depths have no bottom. Even V has run out of names for this situation. The iceberg is cutting through and the rivets are popping off. Screams are heard but it will do no good. Fate is upon us.
