Close, But No Cigar, Monica

In a season bereft of victories, it is funny how close we have come to that elusive first win.

The Seattle game saw a possible TD pass (or at least a 1st and goal from the 6) dropped by Marquise Goodwin.

The Ram game saw a bullshit OPI call in Trent Taylor that would have resulted in a 1st down, and the ability  take a shot at a game-winning FG.

The AZ game saw numerous a touchdown reversed on a ticky tacky OPI call on (yet again) Trent Taylor.

As I said before the season started, there is very little difference between a 3-1 team and an 0-4 one. Many many games come down to a play here and a play there. Thing is, ALL these games have had WAY too many penalties and dropped passes to be able to win games. Up to and including the Carolina loss, which started with a terrible drop from Goodwin (setting the tone?) on a perfectly thrown ball from hot-and-cold-running Hoyer.

Thing is, this is the sign of a young team. Offensively anyway. A lot of the penalties are of the false-start/illegal motion/delay of game variety. Mental errors. Then again, Rashard Robinson seems to draw 4 a game himself. His are usually mental as well. turn your head, look for the ball, don’t randomly grab the WR when you don’t know where the ball is, etc.

And, as is typical of the NFL, bad teams don’t get breaks from the refs. Taylor was tackled on a deep route last week and it didn’t draw a flag. Robinson runs by a WR breaking his route, and misses him, yet gets a PI call. Stupid shit like that seems to become a bigger deal when the score is close and the game is on the line.

So, clean up a couple things, and the team should be able to still reel off 6-7 wins. The back end of the schedule is relatively easy, and we should be able to start making plays and actually winning games. I don’t think the play here is to tank the season. Shit. Look at the 2-2 Jets. Or the 0-4 Giants. Crazy shit.

    Lets hope for the best this next game.

    I think we could kick some ass if we just play some clean football. As of now we are our own worse enemy. I wouldn’t take Indy for granted this week I bet it will be a tough game. They have got a lot to prove too.

  3. unca_chuck says:

    They have a win, though. We’ve played much better defenses than these guys. But ike you said we have to stop shooting ourselves in the feet.

      It’s time to kick some butt. Apparently this coach is not having any back East lay-over at least for this season. Niners will sleep in their own beds between games.

    I loved reading this blog before the season started. I wouldn’t post. I’d just read the idiots. I’d read the irrational optimism and smile. I’d read the hope and laugh. I’d read the 49ers were a potential playoff team like Chuck offered. I’d read Winder claiming the 49ers were a .500 ball club.

    4 weeks into the season and all you idiots have a dose of reality. And the truth is that this cycle will perpetuate itself. Lynch and Shanahan will eventually be fired and their picks and systems will be sold off or forgotten, and York and the 49ers, in 3 more years, will be selling you all a different face. “It’s a new regime in SF, the last regime didn’t know what it was doing. This one does. We’re on our way to contending again. Stay with us loyal fans.”

    Horseshit. Jed York is a loser and you’re all losers for following him.

    Hey Spit. Get a grip. If I’m a loser for hosting a blog, you are an even bigger loser for posting here. if that is the criteria. Hyuk! Did Skeebers ban you again, or are you just a chickenshit?

    Stupid fucknig twit. You and NoFear ought to hook up in the back of Nipper’s van. Oh, that’s right. Too scary. You are both pseudo-outdoorsmen. NoFear doesn’t get what freedom is, and you don’t get much of anything.

    Caught any plastic fish lately?

  6. Winder says:

    ,Lol. it must really be bothersome for you to see the 49ers just might have something going. Oh BTW I haven’t picked the Niners to be a .500 team for at least 2 maybe 3 years. But carry on I actually think you posts are entertaining. So far this season I am having a ball, just as I expect most fans are compared to the last couple of years

    Omg I was going to post here until I saw SPITBLOOD was back ! Now I’m feeling just too intimidated to say that I like what Trent Taylor brings to the table. Garcon and Taylor give us two serviceable WRs IMO. Now with a real #1 … and maybe a three like Kerley or whomever next year we can actually contend. again

  8. Winder says:

    rob- this is just the beginning we are gonna be contenders for years to come.
    Hey spit- if you take that stick out your ass you would probably have a better attitude. Cmon man jump on the bandwagon.

    Shitty is an angry, angry dude, taking delight in the perceived misfortune of others. The name of the blog is 49ers Forever, not 49ers when things are going good, Shitty. It’s called loyalty. Get a clue.

  10. NJ49er says:

    Rob I’ve been impressed with Trent Taylor since mini camp.
    Thought at the time, that he has that Wes Welker-type hustle about him.
    We can only hope he travels somewhere close to the Welker Line as time progresses.
    Kid is fearless.
    He’s even got me thinking about wearing his jersey.
    Easily the biggest surprise for me in this years’ Draft Class, in a very positive way.

    It’s time for a game in INDY! GO TEAM!

  12. Nipper says:

    It’s time for Spit to get happy! Yes sir…….spread the happiness around is my motto.
