As of now the 49ers are #2 in the run for the #1 pick in the league. Based on Cleveland’s weaker strength of schedule they have the top pick. I suppose the strength of schedule can change by the time the season ends, but the Niners could very well fall behind the New York Football Giants by beating them today. There has been a lot of talk about teams tanking this season, like the J-e-t-s, but they went out and won 4 of 9 for something resembling respectability, seeing as the Jets were 5-11 last year and they did a fairly big purge.
Anyhow, back to us, the braintrust went ahead and said that BeatHard would be the cannon fodder to get beaten harder today, instead of the shiny Ferrari in the garage, Jimmy Garoppolo. Trent Brown has been moved to LT in place of the injured Joe Staley, so at least he might slow down some of the pass rushers. And I’d imagine that Staley’s return would signal that it would be OK to pull that Ferrari out of the garage.
So, there you have it. A game that has draft implications as these guys, the Browns, and the Giants may not have 3 wins between them all for the next 7 weeks, but one of them wins tomorrow. I think we have the best shot. Cleveland is on the road in Deetroit, so that should be a cakewalk for the Lions. Beyond that, I’d think this team is very focussed on winning more than lining up for next year’s draft. The new coaching staff has the team behind them, and the front office is being very quiet about things, so the sense is that the team, while sucking hard due to injuries and inexperience, is heading in the right direction.
fuck it. Lose out. Trade the #1 pick for booty down under. This is my plan for them.
I would really like to see us play a clean game of football(no fucking turnovers-outrageous # of penalties). I also would really like a shot at Barkley so if we get anyplace past #4 slot we will probably lose out. I don’t think the Niners will tank any game, it would be counterproductive to the philosophy that Lynch and KS are trying to establish. I also think CJ has his best game today. No rookie QB should have to go through what he’s been through the last couple of games. But, I think it will make him a better football player since he did.
Well I am hoping for a win, or if not, for CJ to suck so bad they put Jimmy G in, at least something to see.
Yeah we’re all due for a win. Losing just gets to be a habit. I hope CJ has a productive game. Jimmy G probably will not play unless there’s an injury.
I didn’t know Staley was coming back today, so They are likely gonna wait till after the bye and start him in the Seattle game.
They pretty much announced in on Wednesday. Quick healer.
That was PI on yoos-check.
That interior OL is beyond pathetic.
Just getting shoved back on that 4th and 1.
I want a win
Me too. The team needs it.
Yeah so do I. If they are still in the market for a QB next draft they have plenty of picks to move up.
Run, run, run, why?
CJ’s actually getting some time today.
There’s your fuckup. This Yuuuschick sucks so far.
Fumble……kind of predictable.
Bullshit ticky-tack call on the hold. Jerome Boger’s crew leads the league in flags thrown and it’s not close.
Nice rush by Blair. He’s an interesting guy, could turn out to be good.
83 yards TD Niners!
That is why you throw the ball 🏈!!
CJ looking good today.
Nice connection on the TD.
Good grief. Lead gone already.
CJ is making me eat all the bad things I said about him last week. He looks fantastic.
13/16 for 198 yds and 2 TD’s at the half. Two perfect balls on the touchdowns. That will, as they say, work.
Funny what some blocking will do.
You just wasted a time out Shanahan.
WTF makes him think that’s not a catch? He’s probably going to need that TO later.
maybe the ball is gonna bounce our way today
that was a missed chip shot
That’s how you lose games, your fucking QB throws a pick on a screen play. Just a comedy of errors. Paulsen with the boneheaded holding penalty. WTH.
CJ going off. It’s nice to finally play a team as bad as we are. lol
This game is probably the end for the NY Giants head coach.
After reading about it all week, I can see first hand what they’ve been saying. Poor effort from this team and some guys look like they’ve flat given up.
Just think we actually get some highlights this week
Breida showing his wheels! Great audible by CJ there! He looks like the real deal in this game. It’s amazing what some protection will do for a QB’s confidence. Great bounce back game.
The run blocking is actually good, and the O line in general. but holy shit, the Giants gave up on about 6 plays that really looked bad.
As bad as CJ looked, under a ton of pressure, last week, he looked equally as impressive today. Again, the Giants are nearly as banged up as we are, and they are giving up on their coach, but a win is a win. Got to start the Shanny Jr era at some point.
I know the Giants suck but that really takes a load of pressure off the whole organization
A win is a win. The HC was grateful. He was out taking pictures with the fans.
i loved the part where they poured cups of gatorade on lynch. he had a huge grin.
No apologies for any wins in the NFL. The Niners played a solid game and made some big plays. They deserved this one. Let’s see if they can’t get a couple more.
Yeah NO APOLOGIES! BLEEP!
Hey Zumiee………Sabean admits the Giants have to make “painful choices.” Perhaps fire the outfield? What do you think?
At least get a new centerfielder.
Ahhh, Mittens. We hardly knew ye . . .
Joe Fonzie is reporting that Ben (don’t call me Bob) McAdoo will be out as head coach, and his replacement will be the one and only Jim Harbaugh. He and the New York press is a match made in hell.
Not sure where that is coming from, but Harbaugh isn’t burning a hole in the NCAA, He’s been decent but has fallen short yet again of the championship he’s been looking for.
Go Jim! I wonder if he still shops at Walmart?
Gotta believe Jim will be back in the NFL at some point.
Didn’t think it would be this fast. I thought he would at least cycle through his initial recruiting effort.
Harbaugh’s ex-RB Brandon Jacobs has something to say about St. Jim.
I don’t know if I posted this before but it is very cool
Vontea Davis is available
Two time pro bowler would be nice to have out there with Johnson and Witherspoon
Hey there are no 49ers in the top 100 NFL players list but how would you like to have a QB on that list
