And Down the Stretch They Come!

The juggernaut that is the Santa Franciscoclara 49ers is heading toward week 17 with an awesome one-game winning streak. So all is well in Ninerland. The team is hitting its stride. Well, just kidding.

The trainwreck that has become the 2016 season reaches its conclusion next Saturday with the Seattle Seahawks coming to town to waylay they last shred of crapitude from the bowels of the front office.

That’s my hope, anyway. Young Sir Jed Hides-a-lot is not playing a fair game of whack-a-mole by staying underground all year. He has systematically intruded and decisioned his way to a team that has no talent, no football people, and no chance of righting their way any time soon if we keep following the playbook of the 12 years of crapitude with 2.5 years of relevance.

We have no QBs signed for next year. A shitty WR corps(e). Decent RBs. A decent line. A one-year wonder lame duck coaching staff that has yet again set new lows in futility. Granted, the coaching staff has a  D-III college roster, but with that said, there are ways out of this for Young Jedidumbfuck:

  1. Get rid of nearly everyone in the front office.
  2. Hire an overseer (for ex: Tom Coughlin)
  3. Find a GM.
  4. Get out of the fucking way.

See? Easy peazy. We DO have some talented players. And the line is actually playing OK. The D line is fair. The DBs are pretty good. The biggest lacks are at QB, pass rusher, and WR. No explosive players and no consistent pass rush. One good draft would set the team on a decent path.

But the front office is the biggest impediment.

    Yes start with the front office, leave Kelly alone for one more year to see how he does under new management

  2. Nipper says:

    Changes are coming or else. Trent better pack his bags and his drafting advisors better hit the bricks too. With this kind of talent the coach is irrelevant. Anyone will do and the Chipper fits this to a tee. He needs a QB because Kap is not consistent. Nothing is worse than an on and off performing soul at QB.

  3. Flavor says:

    to me, the biggest surprise of the year is that so many of Chip’s players are still supporting him. All of the Philly players hated him. So, he’s changed and it is a good thing to see someone be able to change at this level. You would think that a 2 win season would have everyone at each other’s throats. So, either they just don’t give a shit (possible) or Chip deserves some credit for keeping the team together (more likely).

  4. Flavor says:

    Also, Nipper, why don’t you ever frequent The Flap anymore? Twin left and that was it for you?

    • Nipper says:

      For some reason I just cannot get on your blog anymore. Must be the people running the blog. Perhaps I’ll have to reapply under a different name.

  5. Winder says:

    It shouldn’t be to much longer until the Jedster come out with his plan. Hard to say what it will be since the silence is screaming. Could be he will need a Gazebo to go along with his Cabana, it’s still up in the air.

    • Nipper says:

      Jed’s enjoying the good life in the Los Altos Hills. Santa Clara is down by the Bay where all the traffic is buzzing around.

  6. Nipper says:

    The season is over…….the “other” blog is down to name calling and put downs. When that happens, you know the end is near.

  7. unca_chuck says:

    For what it may be worth.

    And I say no fucking way. Unless we still have Baalke.

  8. unca_chuck says:

    The 2nd overall pick to the Pats? I wouldn’t do it. But I bet they’d blow their collective wads to trade with us.

  9. unca_chuck says:

    Refute it, skeebs. Or own it.

  10. Nipper says:

    51 missed picks out of Baalke’s last 80 picks. Guys that just couldn’t play. This guy should go if Jed doesn’t want more empty seats for next season.

    • Nipper says:

      Bob Fitz. revealed these numbers on his KNBR show today. If true……OUCH! Drive him to the airport…….now!

  11. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, the picks are here for all to see. 2 pro bowl appearances in 6 years?

  12. unca_chuck says:

    And Buwwit thinks that this game with Seattle is important as we haven’t lost our last game of the year since 2007. Like it fucking means something to be 3-13 over 2-14. Me? I think draft position is a little more important.

    Yeah, they’ll try. And they’ll lose.

    The fricking players are pretty much behind Kelly. I could give a shit at this point if he stays or goes, but I want the new EVP/GM to make that call, not Jed Trips-over-his-dick-a-lot.

  13. unca_chuck says:

    Sure is fun watching Skeebers and K-K-Ko reprint all the stuff I post (“it has been learned that if you want Garopollo . . . “), and Pittsburgh is resting their starters and has nothing to play for as reported 6 hours before they post.

    I may be stupid, but you guys all follow me.

    • Nipper says:

      They are always thinking of you Chuck. What power you have! They even give you cute little nicknames. lol

  14. unca_chuck says:

    And NoFear, who the fuck are you talking to? Show me one fan that thinks Chip Kelly is a genius.

  15. Winder says:

    Keeping Chipski will just make it harder to climb out of this hole. We need a GM with a plan. He should be the one to pick our HC. No matter what it’s gonna take awhile to get better( just like the Raiders and their GM has done). I’ve been reading that the players are behind Kelly, well fuck that, Kelly is a loser with nothing to put on the table. The league has figured him out and from what I have seen he has nothing up his sleeve.

    • Nipper says:

      And Jed should just get out of the way when it comes to football matters. Stick to the business end of the operation and stay away from the football decisions. Levi’s is a gold mine if run right.

  16. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, I agree wholeheartedly, Winder. I don’t want anyone but the new FO guys to make the call. If we install Gamble and fire Baalke and don;t do anything about the EVP, we’ll be flatlining. Well, who knows? Gamble could turn out to be OK, but that guarantees that Kelly stays. Can he draft better than a blind monkey with a dartboard? It would be hard to do worse.
