Back to Football . . . (hisssssssssss)

Yeah, I know. Back to the trainwreck, back to reality. The front office is playing the rest of the season trying to minimize the extent of the losses, it seems. This of course is based on the fact that the team, when down by a couple scores, refuses to take chances on 4th down, or kicks field goals when they should be going for touchdowns.

The philosophy now seems to be for Blaine Gabbert to be careful rather than take the risk of an int. Don’t throw in the end zone when inside the 10. Just check that bitch down. The problem with this is, well, the defense often lets teams score early and often, so the way they are playing it is nothing but a slow-down technique. The safe route. You know. What Nolan and Singletary preached to Alex Smith.  To me, this looks an awful lot like they are minimizing the point disparity to bolster their decision to bench Colin Kaepernick.

No one in their right mind feels that the 49ers will beat the Cards, so I guess our intent will be to try and stay within 17 points. Yay! Moral victories are so sweet. Go Niners! And take Baalke and Marage with you.

    Christian Ponder has been picked up by the Broncos. Ponder’s a guy I wanted the Niners to get. I thought for sure he’d succeed in Minnesota coached by former SB Niner Bill Musgrave.

    That’s all well and good. What’s hilarious to me is that I literally just found out who his wife is a couple days ago. I saw her on some ESPN promo and said “Whoa!” and out of curiosity looked her up. I chuckled to myself and thought, “Yeah, with all his millions and THAT wife I wouldn’t work really hard at football either!”

    Maybe she’s expensive.

    If you’re living in California watch out! There’s a deadly kissing bug roaming around. So don’t get kissed! Or you might be a goner.

      Just another insect to look out for, I had never heard of Chagas disease before. I guess it’s just another one of God’s private jokes “hey when we create all this bullshit lets give em something to dodge.”
      Happy Thanksgiving everybody.

    Happy Thanksgiving, folks!

    Be careful out there.

  4. unca_chuck says:

    Funny how most fans are still in myopic mode around the state of the team.

    How Gabbert will save the team. Laughahble if is wasn’t so childish.

  5. rtfirefly says:

    Happy Thanksgiving all! Romo with the Pick-6 on the third play of the game, snow on the way here – it’s gonna be a good day!

    Detroit won annihilated Mark Buttfumble and Co., so they have 4 wins. Another 3 win competitor bites the dust…

  6. rtfirefly says:

    ANOTHER Romo Pick-6, and this one was actually all on him! Alas, I’ll have to wait until tomorrow for snow, but 2 RP6’s make my day.

  7. rtfirefly says:

    ANOTHER Romo pick! Consecutive plays this time! This is awesome – all at Texans stadium.

  8. Nipper says:

    Dallas depends on Romo too damn much. Carolina is eating these turkeys early. Chomp!

    • rtfirefly says:

      Now they aren’t. Romo’s out with a reinjured clavicle. Damn. Now the Cowpukes are going to beat us out for the #5 draft spot.

  9. rtfirefly says:

    Rodgers hurt (left wrist broken/sprained?) on a busted play after a squib kick shotgun snap. To add injury to injury, the Pack lost FG position that would’ve put them ahead in what’s turned into a tough, close game. If I were center Corey Linsley, wouldn’t be buying any real estate in Green Bay right now.

    • rtfirefly says:

      He got it taped and he’s coming back in for the next series. It really looked bad when he came off. My guess is sprain or hairline fracture.

  10. Nipper says:

    Skeebers writes the “Vultures are circling.” Skeebers does a good job with these end of the world type efforts. He really catches the doomsday feel of the current Niners situation. Tickets are apparently going at below market value as fans are trying to shed their upper tier seats and get out of dodge……….. Santa Clara. This crowd is too smart to sit in those seats for this current team…..right? Upper tier….watching the inept Niners? No way! The parking will cost more than the tickets. Ouch! Take public transportation? Boo Hiss!

  11. unca_chuck says:

    Skeebs can suck a bag of dicks. He’s been whining since Alex was traded.

    • Nipper says:

      Bullit reads this blog how about something for him? I’m sure he’s dying for some Chuck thoughts this “black Friday.”

  12. Nipper says:

    Kap probably will be the Raiders back-up QB. Raiders seem to like to dumpster dive the Niner rejects.

  13. rtfirefly says:


    Unreal. I’m riding this pony till he drops.

    • rtfirefly says:

      The Warriors have a nasty 7 game east/Midwest road trip starting Tuesday, so this won’t last, but it’s been one helluva ride so far.

    • rtfirefly says:

      Road trip’s a full two weeks and is not based on geography – flying from the East Coast to the Upper Midwest back to the East then back to the Upper Midwest. I’m more concerned with how they do once they return then how they’ll fare on such a long, ugly trip.

    • rtfirefly says:

      Correction: starting Monday in Utah, then ending on the 12th in Milwaukee after playing the night before in Boston. Nasty.

  14. unca_chuck says:

    Harbs now 0-3 vs top 10 teams. Oh well . Always the bridesmaid.

  15. unca_chuck says:

    Schembechler never won the national championship either.

  16. unca_chuck says:

    Bakken weenie is losing his mid praising the Bears? 16th ranked defense.

    Gotta wonder what he’s smoking.

  17. rtfirefly says:

    LOL, I’m losing track.


  18. snarkk says:

    Cards, 36-13…

  19. rob says:

    Kap had an “extensive” tear doctors said. He wanted to be at the game but was advised against it
