Even if it was a loss, at least the offense woke up and played after a very inauspicious start by Brian Hoyer. The defense that played so well against the Seahawks pulled a no-show against the once-lowly Rams, who seemed to have channeled the spirit of the 1981 49ers, and their GM John McVay in his grandson Sean. The Rams converted 8-12 3rd downs, and the middle of the field was seemingly wide open every time Todd Gurley came out of the backfield. Infuriating to say the least as Ray Ray Armstrong spent too much time neglecting his zone responsibilities and running around in circles and wey out of position.
But the offense, led by Pierre Garcon and his 7 catches for 142 yards kept the Niners in the game until a killer non-existent offensive pass interference call in Trent Taylor killed a promising drive to win the game late.
Good news is we get 10 days off, and the reports are out there that Reuben Foster may come back a little early from his high ankle sprain. That would be welcome news for a defense that looked tired from the Seattle effort and a short week to recover from that game.
Next up is yet another divisional game against the AZ Cardinals. A team that looks fairly lost itself with their loss to Deetroit, and a squeaker of a win over the Colts. Unless they somehow beat the Cowboys, they’ll be at 1-2 with Seattle.
Strange year so far in the NFC West.
Burp! A couple of beers in the afternoon hits the spot on a warm day. To hell with Trump!
Lol, Trump is more Hollywood than most of Hollywood. He is actually entertaining.
Good to see Dawson still helping the 49ers.
BakkkenTom protested a baseball game:
Apparently Bakkentom reads these posts over here and got into trouble with Skeebers over on the other blog. Skeebers chewed him OUT! What a hoot.
That guy sure looks fat to me. Less ballpark food should be doing this guy a favor.
If you remember this show, this is pretty funny.
The Giants long unfruitful season……….ouch!
This is by far one of the worst by the G-men for a long time. Usually when expectations are so high they don’t play as bad but it sure looks like the better days are way behind us. They are gonna have to ;pull a lot of stuff out of the hat to even come close to contending next year.
Contending? I almost forgot what that meant. OUCH!
Oh come on, Nip. 2014 wasn’t THAT long ago. The Cleveland Indians are on a 70-year wait.
It’s almost over,Nip. At least the Warriors are gearing up for another title run.
And now we get the Matt Cain retirement game. Can’t the Giants quit celebrating the past? Guys retire …….that’s normal. Say goodbye and be done with it. The season has been a disaster. They need a new team. Adios, Matt.
Yep, overall Bay Area sports is looking ok, baseball not so much. The Niners are doing just what we thought. They look like a team that is learning how to define themselves. Their timing is still an issue and we make to many mistakes but that is to be expected. They are playing the full 60 minutes. I think we win this one.
I don’t understand why no one brings up the York’s creating this Anti-American movement that now has infested the NFL and our beloved game. If they just cared a little about the game instead of money and greed none of this would’ve even started. Instead we now have Kaepernick who was a 49er, who found a Muslim girl friend who hates America and poisoned his mind the entire NFL is in turmoil.
Now because of us not having an ownership with pride of country the entire league has followed what our ownership created by doing nothing, not caring who’s on the field or what Shenanigans they were pulling off.
Go back to speed reading, Emily. Hey, maybe Ray Rice can knock some sense into you.
The thing with the protest is it is turning off the casual fan. This is the very reason I don’t watch the Academy Awards anymore, actors start making political statements during their acceptance speech! I just don’t care, I no longer watch any pre game shows on television.
Fuck the casual fans. When Pac Bell first opened up it was full of laptop-toting suit-wearing hipster fuck-head wannabes all over the ballpark. It pissed me off no end. Took about 5-6 years to weed out the posers and get more and more real fans to the games. Winning helped, but so did the game experience at the new stadium compared to the old one.
If the NFL loses casual fans, they can all take up knitting.vFuck ’em.
Problem with football is the exorbitant prices per game, the crappy new location of our stadium, and the fact that our gleaming new stadium fan experience is like being an ant under a microscope.
The problem with your thinking Charlie is that when the team is winning the casual fan is spending as much money as we the real fans. The NFL does not want to lose that money.
They are losing ‘real’ fans as well what with the delays, replays, reviews, unnecessary game-changing penalties, and incessant commercials. I mean really, the penalty that Von Miller got in the Buffalo game is stupidity at it’s highest order. And it altered the course of that game. Buffalo was able to run the clock down and kick a FG after this call. It makes the game look fixed when a prank loses the game for Denver.
If you didn’t see it:
This is horrible officiating at its worst. Much like flagging end zone celebrations the same way you penalize Danny Trevathan for his hit last night. The game is intense and these guys could literally get killed on any given play, and to give Von Miller a 15 yard penalty on that is fucking retarded.
Our generation may be the last generation that is really involved in the game. Major changes need to be made, and it may turn off a lot of fans. The head injuries that are happening at an alarming rate will eventually kill the game off. But to make the game safer will take away most of the action. I don’t have the answers but to throw flags on things like this is absolutely asinine when the consequences for Trevathan’s hit are exactly the same.
Football pre game shows
Jesus, Trevathan should be suspended for the rest of the year for that hit. That was the cheapest of cheap shots.
I agree with my friend Irish here, he seems like a very smart individual. None of this firestorm would’ve happened with any Ownership with American pride and patriotism. A quick removal of a Christian who turn Muslim, then turned Anti-American and everyone is still standing with their hands over their hearts, singing our National Anthem.
Yeah but are the Niners going to beat AZ?
All I can see as a benefit is, the extra days off and, Boone, Iupati both being out.
If we can’t pressure Palmer however, I can see our Secondary having a long afternoon Nipper.
Not holding my breath for this one.
Don’t watch. Don’t whine,
Lambs knock off the Cowchicks.
Damn penalties Shanny! Clean that shit up!
Off we go. New thread.
