Good News (?)

Well, maybe. Depending on how you want the season to go. Me, I’m of a mind to play this shit out and see where we go. The news is that both Carlos Hyde and Anquan Boldin both practiced today and will play this Sunday in Seattle. Yes, Blaine Gabbert is our QB, and Jimmy T went no furthur than this game to say who his QB is.

This season is halfway down the tubes, but really all I want to see is some decent football. As much shit as this team has gotten for the thousands of problems, this team, like last year’s has been hit by a ton of injuries. And it hit the offense this year. Throw in an inconsistent line and an inconsistent QB and you have a mess.

Guess we’ll see how Gabbert does against a better defense than the one he faced. The big question is, well it ain’t that big, but it does have ramifications, what happens if these guys start winning under Gabbs? What if the team makes an improbable playoff run? Do we stick with the coaching staff and front office? Gabbert? Hah!

I seriously doubt it happens, but we’ll see. That’s why they play the games.

    Bakkentom-Bullit says we’re all doomed. Kaput! Even Winder can’t save us. BOO-HOO…….

      Kilgore is coming back. Tiller is taking more snaps at RG.
      Even more interesting is trent Brown got a few in vs. Atlanta.
      We should see some better play from our O line now

  2. Flavor says:

    an improbable playoff run? You baiting Denny or Spitty or one of those tools? I’ll watch all the rest of the games but if I want to see good football I’ll load up one of my daily fantasy teams with Pats or Panthers and watch their games…..

  3. ewisco says:

    chuck, one of the things I liked about your tone when all heck was breaking loose this past year was that, in the end, no one knows. will the new coaching staff suck: no one really knows until we play it out . so you’re statements that gabs will suck kinda violates that. he might. but let’s see how it plays out. isn’t that why we watch?

  4. unca_chuck says:

    Well, the point is, at least with Kaepernick, he HAD success in the game. Gabbert not so much. The sudden glorification of Gabbert as our QB is ludicrous.

    Its more of the screaming masses decrying Gabbert the savior and wanting to lose Kaepernick at the end of the year. Hey, Gsbby does good, they’ll have their choice made for them. I just don’t believe the hype. Gabbs needs to show more than one game. Like I said, winning in Seattle would be a right step.

  5. Winder says:

    I don’t want to see Kappy go but I think he’s gonna have to utilize every chance he has. The way it looks is he is the perfect escapedgoat for Jed and Baalke. I know he hasn’t played very well at all but neither has his supporting crew. I’m still looking for that revamped offense.

  6. unca_chuck says:

    Yup. It s a hard enough job with a good supporting cast.

  7. Nipper says:

    Lets call in the Red Cross …….in times of stress they can be a comfort and a lifeline. Playing in Seattle is stressful for sure especially for our fans. Heartattacks will be popping up around town as fans cry out in depair. In the park I attend there’s always at least two ambulances in the parking lot at the ready for the next medical crisis that’s sure to happen.

  8. unca_chuck says:

    Interesting article about the unseen forces in the front office. Most specifically, Paraage Marathe. A guy I’ve certainly railed against over the years. Esp with his handling of the red-flag duties. Scotty made him look good, and he (they) have brought in a few good free agents, but the overarching trend is that this team is in need of a restructuring.

    Doh!

    The neverending trainwreck.

    • Winder says:

      Interesting. Not a football guy but running things. I think Ratto’s right for once when he said about the leaks “not without directions”

  9. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah. There’s been a lot of talk that the leaks were from Tomsula. I’ve never heard a more stupid premise than that.

    Which is why I think these front office types are behind Baalke all the way. They think the problems with the team are strictly on the QB.

    It buys Baalke one more year on the job and all but guarantees another year of suck, if not a few more. Seeing as Kaepernick will be gone, and Gabbert/rookie will be our QBs going forward.

    • Nipper says:

      Meanwhile on the “other blog” Sir Spit and Bullit are launching grenades to each other while the 49ers fade away into ineptitude.

  10. rtfirefly says:

    The Warrior are getting smoked in L.A. Down 18 in the 1st – this is not the Warrior team I saw in the latter half of last season.

  11. unca_chuck says:

    Too many dumb turnovers and they missed 6 lay ups in the 1st half. When they stop passing they stop scoring. As it is only down 9.

  12. unca_chuck says:

    Fucking Jax st 4-6 is a half game out of first.

    And to anyone giving the Niners shit for their alt unis got a pastel treat tonight.

  13. rtfirefly says:

    They started playing D in the second half. It was MIA in the first. They’re really pushing it inside, too, not relying on the outside game which wasn’t working.

  14. unca_chuck says:

    Shit, curry lollygags shit sometimes. 3 lazy turnovers in 1 min just lost this game.

  15. unca_chuck says:

    The clips were shooting 65% in the 1st half.

  16. rtfirefly says:

    I know they’ll lose tonight or eventually, but at least they’re makng a fight of it. This looks much more like the Warriors. They seemed to sleepwalk through the first half – after Curry got his second PF early they curled up and died.

  17. rtfirefly says:

    Lucky on that call – Curry touched it last.

  18. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. Clips have no heart.

  19. rtfirefly says:

    13-0. Awesome game after that horrid start. Coming back from 23 down on the road against a very good Clipper team? Quite a game.

  20. rtfirefly says:

    Now home against an 8-3 Bulls team tomorrow night – another tough game…

  21. unca_chuck says:

    Rough to play back to back road/home games.

    Dubs aren’t beating stiffs either.

  22. Nipper says:

    Back to back games should be banned. NBA regular season is a joke. People please don’t take this seriously. I hate basketball. Too many games.

  23. unca_chuck says:

    I was surfing with the alien this morning on the way to work.

  24. rtfirefly says:

    Marshawn hasn’t practiced all week due to an abdominal injury, but will likely play – it’s up to him.

  25. unca_chuck says:

    Uboldin’a questionable as well. If we stop dropping so many passes we might sustain a drive or two.

  26. unca_chuck says:

    Another wild warrior game

  27. rtfirefly says:

    14-0, much closer throughout than the final score… Good game by the now 8-4 Bulls on the road, great game by the Warriors in their third game in four nights.

  28. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah the schedulers are doing them no favors. They have the most back to back games as well.

  29. Lurker John says:

    Kaepernick placed on season-ending IR? WOW!

  30. Lurker John says:

    Dylan Thompson promoted from the practice squad.

  31. Flavor says:

    So are the Niners on the hook for the rest of Kaep’s deal cause he’s “injured” or are we free to cut this clown now?

  32. Lurker John says:

    I’m going to go out on a limb and say they wouldn’t have done it if doing so would cause them to forfeit the option to cut him in the offseason.

  33. unca_chuck says:

    He’s gone at the end of the season. Well, we are going to suck for the next 3-6 years. Kaepernick is NOT the problem with this team.

    We’re fucked. If anyone thinks Gabbert will do anything more than be a placeholder for the next rookie flop that Baalke drafts, then hey go for it. Jesus Christ couldn’t run this offense.

  34. unca_chuck says:

    He wants out. He wanted the surgery. I don’t blame him one bit for wanting out of here.

  35. Winder says:

    I bet we give him away for a cup of coffee too. SeeYa Kappy.

  36. Nipper says:

    BOO HOO …….no more Kap? NO more Kap tats? No more Kap personality? Damn Bakkentom-Bullit says “we’re skrewed !” What should we do?

  37. Nipper says:

    Bullit -Tom a match made on Skeebers for all time. They think as one so they are one. Throw in Sir Spit and one has a full asylum of nuts.

  38. Flavor says:

    Gabbert is a joke and I no longer want Goff since I’m pretty sure the NIners would completely fuck up developing him. Probably turn him into another Gabbert. lqtm….
    What I want to know is this: Do we have to pay out that 30 mil injury settlement? No one, including every single NIner beat writer I’ve tweeted, can answer that for me……

  39. snarkk says:

    I’ve read where he has to be able to pass a physical on March 31 2016 in order for the Niners to be able to cut him and avoid his 2016 salary from kicking in. The torn labrum should take 4 months to heal after surgery. So, they are cutting it close…

  40. Winder says:

    What a mess this has turned out to be. Since it’s not my money I really don’t give a shit who gets paid what. But after all this fiasco I hope the players stick it to the FO. Maybe then when it hurts young Jedi the most he might just have to make some rational decisions. If Kappy goes to the Rams or AZ I think we are royally screwed.

    • NJ49er says:

      Wouldn’t rule out a reunion with Roman in Buffalo either Winder.
      Knows the Offense, can handle cold weather too.

      Best thing that could happen?
      Get some interest from Philly, NYJ, maybe Cleveland, to bolster trade value before April 1.

      I think there’s more to this fall from grace too.
      Like Boldin, Torrey maybe Vernon, complaining about being ignored?
      Aldon and the Nessa thing?

      What a mess…

      • rtfirefly says:

        I really don’t think Rex wants him, NJ. Tyrod Taylor has been the find of the season in the NFL. Rex, after all these years, finally has his QB. If that’s not enough, Rex cut Tebow with the Jets. I don’t think he ever wants anything to do with a big, strong running QB with questionable accuracy (which is what Kappy is now).

      • NJ49er says:

        All about interest RT.
        Pretty obvious to me he isn’t worth the Contract he’s working under now.
        I personally don’t think he’s ever going to be comfortable in a Pro Offense.
        All that matters now is, finding some compensation I guess?

        We can lose out and, Draft top 5, for all I care at this point.
        May as well see what we’ve got with Gabbert.

  41. snarkk says:

    So, if Gabbert gets Globbered by the SHawks, the backup QB is a guy I don’t even know. If HE gets hurt, who would be the QB — Torrey Smith?…

    • NJ49er says:

      I would think the plan is going to involve a LOT of quick hitters and running Snarkk.
      Less chance of being sacked that way.
      See what happens.
      If I can stomach it long enough to watch if course.

  42. Winder says:

    NJ- Maybe Gabbert can run our supposedly revamped offense. One thing about watching the games now is that no one expects anything good to come out of it. The game might even prove to be fun to watch, there are still quite a few players with something to prove. When your already lower than slug slime there is no where to go but up.

    • snarkk says:

      Agreed. Looking for individual performances now. Who is worth keeping, grooming. As I noted before, I’m find with some competitive games, but lose all of them to get a high draft spot…

    • NJ49er says:

      Pretty much Winder.
      Kaep simply doesn’t possess a feel for the timing.
      He’s holding the ball or simply unsure where to go with it.
      Not seeing things well enough to be a threat with the pass.

      We should see something with the short passing game later today.
      I hope.

  43. snarkk says:

    Niners are heading into another winter of discontent — should last for a few years. Lost too much talent, organization in disarray. The entire front office should be canned, but Baalke seems to have some Rasputin-like hold over Prince Jed…

  44. Nipper says:

    Hark! ……We’re KAPless! ……Bakkentom-Bullit says we’re screwed like them. At least we’re not Skeebers. We have our standards over here.
