The Curse is Lifted!!!

The opening day win curse has been vanquished in a blaze of penalties, turnovers, and general ineptness by the offense. The D did all they could, and Cam Newton looked like a guy fresh off shoulder surgery, but the score should have been around 42-3. Well, 42-7 if Mr. Goodwin could have caught that deep ball when the 49ers looked pretty good. The opening drive was fairly decent till it stalled.

The rest was a shit-show around our Fusco Brothers at guard. Well, Fusco and Beadles. They spent so much time looking behind them at the carnage that they both got whiplash. Other than that, it was about how it was supposed to be. Reuben Foster is saying he’ll be out minimally but why hurry? The team isn’t turning things around overnight, and he needs to be right. Next up is Seattle on the road, so that should be fun. They of course were held TD-less by the Packers so they are looking to us to bounce back.

I just hope their O line problems are exploited by us. The way our line was trashed by Carolina.

    Fuck it. They got that turd of a game out of the way, now go get the Seahawks. They can’t play much worse, so I feel pretty good that they’ll play a lot better this week. Losing Foster sucks but it could’ve been a lot worse. From the 49ers website, I wouldn’t be surprised if he missed the next two games. High ankle sprain.

  2. Lurker John says:

    And, yeah, the guards suck something fierce. Beadles was a revolving door and lucky he didn’t get Hoyer killed. The Hawks have a tough defensive front too, so they’re probably salivating.

    I told myself the minute Baalky was let go that I was gonna have some fun this year. And, it has even been better than I expected. We are in total rebuild and we are not gonna win a bunch of games this year. I am pretty sure we are gonna get better week by week. I honestly think we have the right pieces in place to build something good. As far as I’m concerned I am just gonna watch and see how it works and enjoy this year. It is just the beginning.

    I still don’t like the icing the kicker time outs. Never have never will.

    Nice article. The team disconnected from its fan base to play in a fucking industrial park 40 miles away. LA didn’t even really want a football team, and now they have 2 that won;t even come close to filling their stadiums. The fucking Chargers couldn’t sell out a 27,000 seat stadium.

    On Saturday, 90,000 pak the coliseum to watch the Trojans and the Rams can’t give tickets away to fill the same place.

    • Nipper says:

      Rams have to win to get support and the Chargers should just go back to San Diego. Sometimes these moves are failures. Niners move to Santa Clara has proven to be a dud. Everyone wants a winner. People are spoiled and they pay too much money at these stadiums. Raiders move to Las Vegas might prove to be a failure too. Raiders belong in Oakland but the NFL is pricing themselves out of loyal communities that support them.

      • Lurker John says:

        The Chargers leaving SD will end up being a big mistake, IMO. They are immensely popular there and have a longtime and loyal fan base. The city wouldn’t capitulate to a new stadium so the owners bailed. They belong in SD. Typical scenario attempting to hold tax payers hostage and get a new facility built. Didn’t work this time.

      They really need to address it. Having been to the stadium before I chose my season tix carefully and am in the shade for most of the games but even what’s left is brutal. The pics people post are real, fans can’t endure that and lots go under the concourse.
      They also need to address the very long lines at concessions, I missed almost all of the 3rd qtr in line, was never that bad at the stick.

      • Lurker John says:

        Incredibly, the 49ers have managed to take $1.3B and build a facility that may well end up being more maligned than the beleaguered stadium they left behind. Plus they built it in fucking Santa Clara.

        How do you fuck that up given the state of modern stadium architecture? Brilliant new sports facilities are cropping up all over the country and have been for years. It’s one of the warmest regions in the area and always has been. How is that somehow overlooked?

        Who cares about green this and renewable that, it’s a football stadium and you have $1.3 billion. Do it right! I found myself watching the Saints-Vikings game last night and marveling at their new state-of-the-art building and thinking how nice it’d be to have one like that. IN SAN FRANCISCO. So what if it’s in California, put a dome on it or at least one of those partial roofs we’re seeing now. The Minnesota facility is phenomenal.

      • unca_chuck says:

        With the lack of crowd actually at the game, that really sucks.

      • unca_chuck says:

        Did u=you see the Viking game yesterday? Their stadium looks like Darth Vader landed a spacecraft in Minnesota. Ours looks like a fucking tinker toy designed by a 5 year old. Horrible. Jed should be forced to eat that stadium and start over in SF.

  6. unca_chuck says:

    Irish did as well, There are like 2 rows in the entire stadium that get shade all game.

    Thing is, at the Stick, the pullout section was where I usually sat as the temps would be perfect. If it rained, so what?

    • 12th Man says:

      Sat in the pull out many a time too, never had a problem, always good sight lines, no poles!
      John is right, they took the same plan they had for building at the stick and used it at Santa Clarita without any consideration of the huge climate difference, they really fucked it up, all 1.3 billion of it, inexcusable. Cardinals stadium is good, air conditioned dome with a retractable roof for later in the year games.

  7. Lurker John says:

    They’ll be stuck with the thing for at least 30 years. Unbelievable.

  8. Lurker John says:

    Yeah, Candlestick Point has the air conditioning built in. Not terrific for baseball, at least at night, but near ideal temps for football, California style. Look at us, yearning for the days of the Stick. lol

  9. unca_chuck says:

    the site is fine. The stadium was shit. it was under sea level. Duh.

  10. Winder says:

    That really is too bad for the fans. I didn’t like the move to SC either but I understood the reasoning. Being a 1.3 bil project I doubt it’s not even close to being paid off. Maybe they can force the contractors into figuring things out
