Well, it’s the penultimate game of this list campaign. Surprisingly Detroit looks like s much better team than us despite their 5-9 record.
That being said I don’t think we do very well today. Our road woes continue, and we secure a top 5 pick. 4-12 with a bullet.
Jesus, we’re probably gonna win this game. But it won’t change the succatude it will just prolong it. I hate hoping to lose but at this point I don’t want to drop in the draft.
Well this could be interesting game, I have a terrible Chest cold, might not make it through the whole game!! I hate colds!! 😡😡😡
Brandy always helps me through that.
So, when Hayne comes in, I know he’s getting the ball on a run. If I know that, then the Lions know it and that’s why they tee off and hit him basically as soon as he’s given the ball. Why not play action when he comes in, or a flat pass to him. Seriously, the Niner offensive play calling is worse than high school on a consistent basis…
Gabbert seems kind of DeBerg-ish to me. “Just good enough to lose.”
I don’t know about this HGH and Peyton Manning BS. As I say about baseball, nobody is beyond suspicion these days in using PED to help themselves. Doesn’t mean they use them, but nobody is beyond suspicion. Apparently his agent per ESPN report is not denying that Manning’s wife was receiving HGH supplements. Unless she needed that for some real medical need, and that could be, if it were an elective treatment for her, I don’t see how Manning would not recognize that situation as potentially dangerous to his reputation…
Al Jazeera? There’s a reliable source.
I’d rely on Al Jazeera far more than Fox. I’ve seen Al Jazeera English version online news, it’s very professional for global news…
When Gronk goes out wide for the Patriots, he becomes basically what Dwight Clark used to be for the 49ers. It’s a reminder of how good Clark was.
Same number, too, 87.
At least the Niner D has decided to let the idiot Lions win a meaningless game and push their draft spot down further. Seven offsides penalties so far on the Niner D…
How/why do the Niners keep making plays on a 3rd or 4th down when the intended receiver is not past the first down stick? I would argue in football, that is insanity…
Second half offensive plays Lions to Niners: 39-14
Ha! The Patriots lost on a blown overtime coin-toss! Hilarious. Leave it to the officials to find new ways to blow it.
Ref: The Patriots have won the coin toss. You wanna kick it?
Patriot: (with a look of confusion) We wanna kick it?
Ref: Patriots have chosen to kick it. The Jets will receive the kick.
Patriot: We won the toss; don’t we get to choose?
Ref: You chose to kick it.
ESPN now reports that Belichick says he told the Pats captains to elect to kick first if they won the OT toss…
Keep Rathman, can the rest of this shit staff. They bring them back they’re an even bigger joke than they are right now.
What I want to know is why the guy can’t change his mind while they’re still out at midfield for the coin toss. A coach can change his mind on a penalty if something changes, but not this? Makes no sense.
If the Niners can pull of a loss against the Rams, they should be in the top 5 picks. Who do they grab?
First, they fire the coaching staff and Baalke. Then, pick a QB. You can’t win in this league without an elite to near elite QB. Just can’t. Gabbert isn’t it. Go from there to shore up the OLine, and pick some wideouts that can get open and catch the damn ball. The offense is beyond horrendous…
You suppose hyde can play TE.
IM pretty much done with vance (ronald) McDonald
I haven’t seen the replay on this but I thought I heard Tomsula say, in response to a question about whether Detroit was a *step ahead of the Niners*, “I don’t know if they were a step ahead. Obviously, they were a step ahead.”
Or something like that. Did any of you guys hear that? Is he just dense?
I feel sorry for the guy, sort of. He’s a perfect D Line coach, but not HC material. Now, if it is true he secretly back-stabbed Harbs and angled last mid-season to get this job, then I have no pity for the guy at all that the media doesn’t even have to try to make him look like a schmuck. He doesn’t seem smart enough to play political games, but maybe looks are deceiving. Look at the coaches, save Harbs, that the Dorks have hired since EddieD gave up the team — Erickson, Nolan, Sing, JimmyT — wow, what a crew…
The Yorks should fire themselves. They just don’t have a clue about NFL Football. Jed is just the latest inept York of a long line of well meaning dopes. They may know about shopping malls or making money and that’s should be what they should stick to….. not football.
I don’t feel sorry for him, what’s he getting paid, 3 mil over the course of his deal? That’s plenty and if he’s the guy to stand up there like a stooge in front of the media, so be it. I was just happy he made it through the entire press conference without ripping off a low murmuring fart. He’s clearly getting better at the pressers. lulz
Yeah, If I were making coupla million a year, I’d be happy to be embarrassed at a presser every week, since at the end of every two weeks my bank account would be very very happy…
You gotta love pro football……guys getting paid millions for doing lousy. Yeah I know, the coaches are depending on the players who are not very good this season. Too damn young and not very good is a bad combination. And now the Lambs, the final indignity of this sorry-ass season. This would make for bad fiction but alas, it’s reality in Santa Clara.
The public will not stand for the same old coaches and administration for next season. They’re just kidding themselves by keeping this coaching staff. Levi will be empty of paying fans next season unless they make some drastic changes.
hopefully, you’re right. But the Yorks already have the dough with the PSL $ and they’re making a shit ton with other events so I don’t see them selling anytime in the next few years. And by then, we could be good again.
They are gonna make bank with the SB. It was really bad judgment on Jed’s part that got us into this position. There were lots of things that went down last off-season besides Harbaugh. Hopefully, he will try and dig us out of this mess. If not it’s really gonna be along dry spell.
That Tomsula looks like a pathetic fool but Baalke is the key to this whole mess. He’s got to walk the plank for the good of the Yorks. The Yorks save their reputations by cutting this Baalke down and out. Yeah someone will hire this guy and good riddance. He’s no prize. In a few years he’ll be head scout somewhere.
I think Nipper is right about the Niners needing to make wholesale changes, but I also think the head tool, York, will bring Tomsula back for whatever nefarious reasons he can come up with. The Rams stuffed Seattle yesterday and will likely do the same to the 49ers. If that happens and the entire staff and Baalke aren’t shit-canned, the Yorks are going to have mass fan mutiny on their hands. Anybody who think the Tomsula regime is the way to the promised land is fucking delusional. What a fucking train wreck.
If the Yorks think this season is bad, wait til they bring back the same cast of characters.
It’ll make this season look like a triumph.
There will be s lot more empty seats and that shiny new stadium will be a ghost town. When the sponsors start dropping off then it’ll get even more dire. They will be ridiculed endlessly and mercilessly. In his day and age of info saturation, you have to wonder how long they hang with it. Despite the new stadium yadda yadda yadda.
What good is owning a team if you are persona non grata in your home town? I know it probably won’t matter in the end, but it may.
Yeah…..remember when 8-8 looked bad? Now that looks respectable. Four wins should get someone fired and I don’t mean the head usher.
Or the head beancounter
Ah the end is near, here is my take on the Niners, first there have been times when the offense and defense has played well, they have just not been consistent. I think the Niners need some really good players to play consistently. I will use Troy Aikman as an example, the first two years the Cowboys were 2-14 with Troy at QB. Jimmy J came to him and said I will build a team around you. So with that said I think the Niners need to not go crazy and fire everyone or just release players. They just need to get better players, draft, free agency whatever it takes
That’s probably what they will do. A massive firing will force the Yorks to start over and admit their mistakes and that is very hard to do. Perhaps after another crummy season that will happen.
Jed only has to fire Baalke, the new GM will take care of the rest.
Chipper was canned, Nipper.
The first domino has fallen. Many will follow.
Be fun to see chip hook up with Kappy in a pistol offense. Here or elsewhere.
Too bad you’re not an owner Chuck. You might create something interesting.
Amazing that there are people that think this team is only missing a head coach. As if this was a super bowl team but for St Jum.
Bullit loves Harbaugh and his other creation Bumpkintom.
As if the injuries and defections would have been magically solved by Harbs.
Its like Norm from Cheers on SNL extolling the virtues of Mike Ditka.
The man had a liver that was cast iron.
Please, no Holmgren for any position. To mix metaphores, that bus has sailed…
Plus…that walrus don’t hunt no more 😀
Yeah, winders post is right. Start with canning Baalke. They have some players. Hyde, bowman. T smith, kilgore, and some of the d linemen.
He f t that they can play at times means they aren’t all bad.
Gabbert is your place holder for Goff
That’s really all Jed has to do is just fire Baalke. Plus find a good GM, and then let him do the house cleaning. In my mind it will make Jed look a lot better than many of the other options.
Fire Baalke and the whole pathetic coaching staff goes too. Is Jed willing to toss that many overboard? The question remains ……what’s next? Who’s available to make a difference?
Scott Pioli . . .
I can’t agree with firing Baalke. He was a major reason we built the window that Harbaugh could not win a Super Bowl with. Jed did good to fire Harbaugh for the same reason Chip Kelley just got fired. Genius coaches but couldn’t get along with other management. Kelly took a 4 win team and went 26-21. I agree he needed to be fired, just as I agreed Harbaugh should have been fired. Both of those regimes were going downhill. Harbaugh was worse as he took the joy of the game from the players causing a huge IR list and mass retirements. Players lost their heart for the game around him.
BTW, the reason we were such a good tackling team under Harbaugh was Singletary’s tackling drills, aka the Nutcracker.
I say give Baalke some time to build the window again. He will. Be patient.
Happy new year.
What? Another 3 years to build a depleted roster? What has he been doing these last 3 years? look at the drafts posted here. 2010 is Scotty. The rest are Trent’s.
Right. Look at the 2011 team, the 2012 team, and even the 2013 team. Most of that was Scotty’s doing. Now look at the roster.
Who has Baalke drafted?
New thread is up.
