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.
