And his name is CJ. CJ BeatHard. He gets his homecoming as a starter for the 49ers this weekend against Dallas. Of course there’s a long history between these teams, but these days, that’s all about the fans, not the players. Still and all, the Brian Hoyer Experience is over, for now, and maybe till the end of the season, and we get to see what the new guy has. He did look good in directing the comeback, scoring 17 unanswered points among a fumble recovery that gave the Niners a 1st and goal at the 2.
CJ was a little erratic, and not spectacular, but for his first NFL action, he did well. The sledding doesn’t get any easier as we face two solid teams in Dallas and Philly, but the biggest shortcoming so far this year is the slow starts. I’m sure this had a lot to do with the decision to switch QBs as weh never get the jump on anyone, and are constantly fighting to come back. Beyond that, Philly and Dallas are 20th and 21 respectively on yards given up per game, and Dallas is 29th in points allowed, so we should be able to do something against this team.
BeatHard FTW! 27-19 Niners.
Well taking all the snaps in practice with starters should help with the erraticness. Hopefully the Niners score and score often
I just hope Beathard is an improvement over Hoyer. I’ll take a moral victory on this one.
I to am hoping CJ can run this team.If he can read defenses then we may have a shot. Love your prediction chuck but I gotta go Dallas on this one. Elliot and Dak will just be too much for our D.
Going to the game with a die hard Cowboys fan friend. Hope to God the Niners win or going home will be insufferable.
Hoyer has disappointed big time, not sure what to expect from BeatHard but at least we find out what he can do before making QB decisions next year.
I am jealous, this should be a real fun one. We issued in a new era with Dallas once before maybe we can do it again.
Heh heh. Good call, Winder. Yeah I remember at the time thinking, shit we could lose all the rest of the games that year (1981) and I’d still be happy with the 45-14 beat-down of the Cowboys.
Instead, we won it all that year.
yep, Fred Dean’s first game and the stick was rockin
12th I hope enough 9er fans are in the seats too.
Seems the visitors are getting in in better numbers than the home team.
Nothing worse than going to see your own home game and getting outnumbered.
Maybe some of the ‘Boys will kneel and call Jerruh’s bluff during the Anthem?
It’s the Cowboys. We gotta get up for this one.
I went to the last Cowboy game at Levi NJ, honestly it was 50/50 or thereabouts, Cowboys/Niners fans. They made it hard for the Niners O to operate, at home.
I’m hoping more Niners fans show up this time around although I’m taking a Cowboy fan so that’s 50/50 right there with my seats. 2 other Niners friends scalped tix in my section too though. Looking forward to the game.
Interesting article about last weekend around the NFL.
I hope it’s our first win, 12th. I’ll be taking my son to the NY Giants game.
We’ll have to meet up . . . Someone send NJ a plane ticket to SJ!
I think they have a chance Chuck. I’m down with that, I’m going to the Giants game, NJ needs to contract the flu.
What’s up with Burger?
Some guys I know have stopped watching the NFL and cancelled their Sunday Ticket over the protest, maybe he has too?
Hell with that, I’ve invested years into the Niners good and bad, damned if I let what I consider a misguided protest to chase me away from my team and yes the team belongs to its fans.
By the way, my son got his student Sunday Ticket for a $100 again this year. He just put in the local college he attends and his age and bingo. I did it for him as a present last year, it was easy.
If Bergs quit football over the protest, then he’s not much of a fan anyway. He disappears for long stretches, but whatever. It’s a free country. I guess amendments only matter when you like them.
Yeah we switched to direcTV from Comcast and got the NFL package for a deal. $39.00. This game is intriguing mainly to see how CJ does. Dallas has a fairly poor pass defense so the hope is we take advantage of that. He was a little wild with his throws, but he hit the open guys.
We just really have to stop with drops.
That ticket stub, of course is the epic disaster that was the divisional playoff game on December 23, 1972 where Roger Staubach scored 2 TDs in the last 1:57. When we got home from that game we found out that our house had been robbed.
I have a shitload of ticket stubs from various games and concerts but this is my oldest one.
Dallas fans did not have it easy at the stick and that is the way is should be. I took a friend who was a Dallas fan to the 45-14 game and told him he really shouldn’t wear their colors in our section. All I heard on the way there was that Dorestt(sp) and Danny White were gonna rip us a new one. One of the best games I have been to in my life.
Funny stuff Winder. I took a good friend to the NY Giants/Niners playoff come back game. Guy was obnoxious in the first half as they rolled up the score but the second half comeback under Garcia was a different story, with 2 old ladies sitting behind us hitting him on the head during the epic comeback. He still to this day claims they were robbed by a no interference call on the last play (They might have been 🙂
Loved the Stick so much more than Levi, place has all the tech in the world and no soul if that makes sense.
12th- I loved that game. Didn’t get the chance to be there but heard it on the radio. Hopefully the fans at the new stadium will get the spirit. There hasn’t been much to look forward to since the new place opened. Maybe this game can start something.
Yeah, didn’t go to the catch game or the 45-14 shellacking but I did go to a bunch of games between 1969 and 1994. The Stick was always a great place even if it was awful. The weather was better for most of the football season than all of the baseball season.
chuck- you are right about that, I ended up with about 8 or 10 of those croix de Candlestick buttons and some of those games were just freezing. I did get soaked at a Niners games now and then but I don’t think I was ever as cold as the Giants games. I didn’t go to Kezar all that much but I remember getting wet and cold there too. That’s why you would see flasks of whisky in just about every pocket. I think that is why I really became a Niner fan, It was because of all the crazy fuckers in the stands.
Heh heh. Yeah, Kezar was a trip. It was like going back in time to the Stone Age. To a kid like me just going to the bathroom there was crazy. It was always foggy and cold.
I did go to those miserable Green Bay/Niner NFC CHampionship games where Favre kicked our ass. Those games were cold and rainy and terrible. and saw the epic 1994 win over Dallas.
12th BERGER is alive and well ! I just talked to him a couple weeks ago and he’s still watching as intently as ever !
Berger loves this place. He loves to rip his fellow bloggers apparently.
Oops I meant Spit. Sorry. My bad!
I can’t believe the Raiders won that game. Chiefs are a much better team. And Lynch for running out on the field looked like the idiot that he is. Pushing and manhandling a referee? What a fool! What a cretin! Back to the Niners. I do hope they show something against the over-rated Cowboys.
Yep, best chance for the first win!! Go Niners!!
Yeah, the Cowboys are only 2-3 at this point and they can be had provided we get pressure. Yet again, the defense has to do more than play soft on 3rd downs. It annoys the shit out of me.
Fucking Cousins got too many yards rushing.
Our offense has to move the chains and keep our D from staying on the field for so long. I would love to see a game where we get no more than 4 or 5 penalties. These fucking refs have taken over the game and there is nothing we can do about it. But, stopping their offense is gonna be the biggest task they have playmakers at QB, WR, and RB. These guys can get beat if we play a clean game of football, no mistakes.
Yeah less penalties = a win.
We have looked great at times and horrible at times. Hopefully with BeatHard in, we can get off to a fast start and not have to play from behind as is usually the case.
Hoyer has made these last few games an uphill battle early picks and generally shitty play. The D comes out slow as well.
Yeah, we are making all the rookie mistakes and then some. We gotta figure a way to stop that.
The Cowboys play much better defense with Sean Lee in at LB. He’s been hurt but will be back this week. Hopefully Foster makes the difference on defense for us that Lee does for the Cowboys.
My demise has been greatly exaggerated
Hey someone go over and wake up Skeeber’s blog. No one’s posted anything since the 17th! Where’s “Chuckles”? I thought he was going to raise some dust over there. Bakkentom has disappeared. Winder your posting was the last one.
I knew you were around Berger. Since we are such a young team with a new scheme all these games are gonna be tough we just gotta play some good ball.
Please forgive me if I posted this one recently. My short term memory has a lot to be desired. Anyway I love these guys.
Winder- I just haven’t had much to say. We just as easily could be 5-1 as 0-6. The offensive pass interference calls at the end of the Rams game and this last game make me feel like we have to beat the refs too. The big reason I don’t have much to say is I watch football to get away from reality. With politics now part of the pre game ceremony and the all week press I can’t even watch football to escape. I’m just not feeling very excited about football these days.
The refs leave a lot to be desired. Just ask the Jets. That was the most obvious of blown overturns since the replacement refs of a couple seasons ago.
Politics? Poor guy. Cry me a river snowflake. Jesus. Nut up or stop watching. That’s pretty sad Bergs.
The kneeling thing is a Democrat thing for Democrats. The say they are trying to unite but they are only uniting Democrats and polarizing the nation. BTW, a snowflake is a Liberal who can’t handle that Trump won. your propaganda is obvious.
If the Dems are such pussies why do folks like you get so butt hurt over the protest? Neo-nazis are fine folks but blacks protesting police brutality is too much for you? Boo boo.
Neo Nazis? Hitler was a liberal. Big guvment, take over the banks and corps. More propaganda.
Baker Mayfield is the guy that Scotty Mc Loughan thinks will be the best QB out of this draft. He’s having a pretty good game right now,
Berger- football is an escape for me too. I don’t agree with the protests either but since the president has inserted himself the whole thing has turned into a circus. The niners have kept my interest all season so far because they are going through such a major overhaul with the FO and the players that it’s hard to imagine we could expect to win much of anything this year. But, like you said we could be 5-1 if we just got the ball to bounce our way. I am having a ball with it so far.
Winder- I see a lot of positives with this team too. Our LBs are really bad. Foster might just be what we need on D. We’ll see what we get from Beathard. He might be OK!
Berger, I’ve been watching the games online and enjoying them even though all have been losses. Just skip or ignore the protest bullshit and focus on the game. It’s what I do and it’s not that hard, just tune in at kickoff. The media does as much to stir this up as anything by constantly focusing on it. Hope to see you continue to post here.
Good news this weekend is the return of the ’81 Team for DClark.
If there’s ever a time for some legacy mojo it’s this one.
Glad to read of the amount of support within the ranks for DCs condition with ALS.
If I were game planning for this one, I’d be looking to control TOP and keep the Dallas O watching from the sidelines as much as possible.
Hoping for a low scoring upset.
We’re long overdue to steal one at this point.
New thread is up.
