Will this be the first win? AZ is usually a tough place to play, but we’ll see about this one. I think we can win this one but this is predicated on this defense getting pressure on Ichabod Palmer. I think AZ is well past their window of viability in being a strong contender in the playoffs, but we certainly aren’t there by any stretch.
Without David Johnson, AZ’s run game is not nearly the scary thing it was. And the worry in the air is of course Larry Fitzgerald. Which brings me back to the pressure, or lack thereof. If we don;t get pressure we don’t win.
Taylor is looking good. He gets open.
They should go for this.
Can’t stand these drops.
Or 4 yard passes on 3rd and 10.
Hoyer inconsistent with his accuracy plus a couple of drops. That ball to Paulsen was a thing of beauty.
Lack of pressure is pissing me off.
Pitch and fucking catch.
No pass rush against a patchwork AZ OL and a human oak tree for a QB. These so-called talented d-linemen had better start pressuring the QB or Palmer is going to carve up the likes of Dontae Johnson and Rashard Lewis all day long.
God Dontae sucks ass.
Pathetic. You can’t let the WR just walk to his spot. This coverage is awful.
Then again, there’s no pressure whatsoever.
Did his elbow land OB? This may not be a TD.
It’s a TD.
Pereira needs to be put out to pasture.
Ooooooh! Huh. I’ll take it.
We need to do better than 10 yard cushions on these pass plays.
Never like the rekick call. Take it on the 30 . . .
These penalties are killing us.
And our 5th penalty. I hate fucking Harold. Yup. Lost 15 yards on that exchange.
He sucks. Why the hell did they cut Brooks for this bust?
Huh. Liking Taylor more and more.
Hoyer gets that ball quick to Robinson it’s a 1st down.
Fuck. These 3rd down plays are killing us. And the penalties are back.
Niners are getting pounded now. That’ll pay off later for AZ
Finally a pass rush, Bowman HAS too make that int
Finally! Jesus. Bowman has to catch that throw.
Nobody on the team can catch the ball. Better pressure those last few plays.
Need to reach the end zone. Palmer turns to clay when pressured.
Announcer ripping Hoyer pretty good, deservedly because he SUCKS!!
Not the most impressive 2 min drill from Hoyer there….
Jesus. Robinson missed both those routes. Or Hoyer did. WTF?
Nice of Tartt trying to kill his teammate and himself on that last play.
That pick it sure looked like Robinson was tackled on his route. Knocked down anyway.
Hoyer can look really bad. Get the fucking ball out of there dude. First sign of trouble and his eyes are down looking at the rush. Kilgore is getting his ass kicked.
Shouldn’t you be gearing up for another Dodger collapse?
Plenty of time for that – long layoff with the WC games and all.
Taylor is going to have to learn to be more subtle on his picks. Overtly dipping his shoulder like that will draw the flag every time.
Not sure how you tackle a WR with no call, and a brush by is offensive PI. Fuck the refs.
Zuerlein kicked 7 field goals today. Gould has a way to go. Lewis is awful. Where the hell did we get the idea that he was any good?
The more games played the more clear the team’s needs are. Corners fer gawd’s sake and a good QB. Offensive linemen.
Fuck Rashard Robinson just can’t put a lid on a garbage can! Never turns around, beat constantly! Has the fucking size, but just no instincts!
9-9, so exciting!
GREAT move by Buckner that time. All of a sudden Dawson can’t miss.
Rashard Robinson is all mouth and no substance! Has to lead this team in Pass interference penalties and just stupid dumbass instincts! Never looks back for the ball, and when he fucking finally does he’s torched and penalized!! Fuck for his size he should have better skills then what he shows!!
That deep ball wasn’t PI. He missed him.
I’m with you Kat, the dude sucks. His starting tells you how thin the team is at that position. He should be a nickel back at best.
Almost a Theisman moment for Hoyer there.
And here comes Beathart!!
This might be Hoyer’s Wally Pipp moment. LOL
Jesus. Drive killing drops and penalties.
DB is having a nice game. Armstead is nowhere to be found.
And again . . .
Drop drop drop. Penalty penalty penalty
Hoyer is missing coverage left and right, lucky not have a pick six so far.
We cannot cover backs out of the backfield. Ever.
Nope. They just skip through the secondary unimpeded.
Harold. 2 sacks in 4+ years.
wow. Givin’ it all away . . .
Fuck! 6 drops this game. Unbelievable.
Palmer has absorbed a lot of abuse over the years because he’s so immobile, especially with Oakland
Doesn’t seem to be slowing him down. He’s about to embark on the game winning drive.
That ball to Robinson was batted away
10 more penalties for 98 yards, including the rare flag on the kicking team. That’s all on the coaching.
Well lookie here, Dontae made a play.
Elvis is in the house! Finally!
RaY RAY! 100 for Dumervil. The D is coming on.
Pass rush saving the game. Remains to be seen if it’s enough to keep the secondary and the offense from fucking it up..
The D is playing a game today,
Well, here it is, on a platter
Taylor was so open on that play
Nice pass to the head coach. Nice catch,
Losing Goodwin his killed the passing game.
Inaccurate passing and drops have killed the passing game. They’ve left a lot on the field.
Well, that too, but Garcon can’t get open without Goodwin helping.
Throw the ball down the field, screens get you no where
Damn a pass caught and it got a first down!! 😱😱😱
Kilgore has been shit in this game.
I have seen more fumble running it up the middle than interceptions!! Why do teams do this!!
Shanahan had no intention of throwing it for a TD, can’t blame him much either
I can. TD wins the game. Now they’re just letting AZ march down the field.
WTF was that Hoyer.
Defense got a nice rest. End this damn game!
I don’t understand why we can’t cover a back out of the backfield. And they didn’t get that last play off before the 2 minute warning.
They’re in that goddamn prevent defense.
Well, They get it I’m sure
Even when Rashard makes a play, he doesn’t.
Pitch and catch. Easy money.
hooooooboy. Need a sack here.
Doesn’t look good for the Niners!
Was that the prevent defense in action there during that drive?
Oh I just saw LJ’s post.
Damn the Niners just can’t get a break! That was too close
fuck the NFL.
This is a joke. I love how there’s no replay of the PI.
Wow, finding exciting new ways to lose.
Oh well. I guess we just have to live with the fact that the refs decide just about every game that is close.
Once again though way too many penalties and drops. But the refs took away 4 total TDs.
Better than a tie. Still in the running for the Sam Darnold sweepstakes. The Niners left a ton of plays on the field today, not to mention 13 fucking penalties. Hoyer was awful. The receivers were awful. Shanny isn’t impressing so far, not like Sean McVay is. Way too many mistakes on both sides of the ball, suspect play calling.. The bright spot was the d-line.
Saleh’s better then Kyle right now for sure!
Maybe it’s time to give Beathard a look.
The D line was dropping 2 guys into coverage until about the 50 (and still couldn’t cover the backs), they should have just kept bringing the heat on Palmer… I wouldn’t jump on the Rams bandwagon yet. They barely beat SF and needed help from the refs to do that.
They played a good game today and dominated the second half on the road. They have flaws, but look to be tough.
Saleh’s dominating Shanahan right now if that means much. They better go all in on offense next draft!
You have to be kidding. Big time need at CB and a consistent edge rusher. More depth at LB is also needed. Losing Borland was a killer. QB and OL for sure.
Was Armstead injured? He was invisible all day. Thomas had his best game, Buckner was a beast and Ray-Ray had his best game. The line figures to keep improving and getting Foster back will be a boost. Those corners, though, fuck they suck.
Kilgore smoked some serious pole today. When your center sucks it’s hard for the rest of the line to gel.
A pass rush takes heat off the Secondary. Our efforts were respectable overall, just not successful when it mattered most.
We’ve got to stop shooting ourselves in the face with stupid penalties and, of course, dropping the throws Hoyer does make.
Might have to rescind my prediction of the NYJ Picking #1 next year.
It’s looking like Cleveland hasn’t done much to release their grip on that position, while we attempt to give them a run for it.
But…What’s the story of the NYG hanging onto the same Oh-Fer record after 4 games too?
This League is just too damn ridiculous to predict anymore.
You’re right, but they had a pass rush today, especially in the second half, but the corners are so bad Saleh usually has them playing 8-10 yards off the ball. The pass rush isn’t going to get to the QB on every play. Sometimes the secondary has to make plays. Today they rarely did. Kat made a good point earlier. Robinson hardly ever turns on the ball. He’s always playing the man. That won’t work in the pros. Johnson may be a tick better, but not much. They have no business starting.
All good points Lurker John. We have yet to put it all together on either side of the ball.
Hyde had his bacon saved on 2 fumbles today as well.
A lot of our problems are self inflicted at the worst possible moments.
Personnel isn’t perfect, which is to be expected with a new regime.
Some pieces just have to do, until better options come into the fold.
Can’t lose to Indy next week, or this thing might just tank completely.
I thought Shanny called a pretty good game today too.
They just didn’t click well enough to make it effective.
Too many self-inflicted wounds in big spots.
