New thread for the last day of the 2016 season. One that was bad, badder, and one of the baddest in the 71 year history of the storied 49er franchise. 2-14 ties us for our worst record ever, and we don’t have a QB or any offensive players to speak of, minus Carlos (ow!) Hyde.
That being said, at least we seem to be moving up from the dregs of the bottom of the barrel. The O and D lines are in pretty good shape, as is the defensive backfield. We need LBs, WRs, and a couple QBs. The Lynch hire may be a shot in the dark, but his hire got us Adam Peters, a very very good talent evaluator. Kyle Shanahan is a great offensive mind. So the onus is on them to quickly draft and free-agent their way to a decent offense.
And offense is what they need to draft. Short the availability of Myles Garret, who would fill a huge pass rushing need, the team needs to focus on the offense. Cleveland holds the card for that first spot, but they are looking for offense as well, so there is the possibility they pass on Garrett. Highly unlikely though. I’m still behind getting Mike Williams of Clemson with out first pick. There are no QBs worth a 1st round pick, and barely even the 2nd pick in the 2nd round. But this team has not had a dominant WR since TO left. And this team BEGS for offensive consistency.
We have 12 picks, so we can take our flier picks on LBs and such. Build the offense. Get Cousins (unlikely) or Hoyer and take a QB high next year.
I mean really, how would you like to be a Raider fan? Your owner shot himself in the feet again trying to leave Oakland for the 18th time, while both St Louis and SD lost their teams. Even Goodie Goodell is averse to teams moving around this much, so it looks like Prince Not-so-Valiant is stuck in his shitty stadium while the fans of the team cling desperately to some kind of Hail Mary from Ronnie Lott.
Atl 35 – NE 24
Yeah Davis isn’t going to Vegas after all.
Still ……I don’t blame the Raiders for leaving Oakland not because of the fans but Oakland can’t finance anything. A private group may come through but after all these years Davis has lost faith in their ability to deliver much.
I forgot what my original prediction was but I know I am close with 34-27 Atl. I just hope the mojo is still there.
I would think our QB for next year will be Matt Schaub. He’s the back up in Atlanta so he knows Shanahan’s system and he will be free agent.
That is a good possibility. A little old and not flashy but maybe for the time being just what we need. He would be the cheapest one compared to Garapolo(sp) and Cousins.
I don’t think getting Schaub would stop us from getting another QB.
New England is favored so I guess I’ll go with them. Defensive play will assert itself because both teams will play conservative so the score will be somewhat low. Perhaps 21-17 Patriots.
Can we just get to the game, Bush does not even know where he is!
I truly doubt that coin flipped!!
looks like most people are going Pats. At least the sportswriters and tv guys.
Oh yeah the game F 30 – NE 27
Greatest QB ever?? Montana was never embarrassed like this!
So whose fault is it that Atlanta just fucked themselves? Head coach, Defense coordinator, Shanahan??
The fix is in
The worst team ever in the super bowl!!!
They all get to wear it. NE got plenty of help from the refs. I suppose NoFear is giddy now cuz Tom sucks Trump dick.
The stat the team that led by 19 after 3 quarters 93-0… well now it is 93-1!!! Maybe the Niners should think twice about Shanahan…
Shanahan didn’t choke that away. The RB who whiffed on the blitz that caused the fumble was killer. Then the flail was on,
Glad I didn’t bet any money.
No kidding. I was up in north shore and almost bet $100.00 on the Falcons. Thought it was a shoo in.
When things go south they go in a hurry. Atlanta looked like a winner and then………..OUCH!
New thread is up.
