Heaven, Hell, or Houston

The Niners are back on the road, looking for that elusive 2 game winning streak. Something not accomplished since the stagger down the stretch that was the Harbaugh exit back in 2014. That 7-4 mark was followed by a) Brady Hoke being fired from Michigan; and b) the 49ers losing their next 4 games to fall out of the playoff race. Coincidence? Who knows? And that is a whole other story.

The story now is the Jimmy Garoppolo era. And whether he can win 2 road games to kick off his 49ers career. No mean feat, as the Bears defense isn’t bad, and neither is Houston’s, although they have been hit with the injury bug as well. In a big way. DeShaun Watson was having a stellar offensive start to his career when he tore his ACL in practice leading up to game 5. Then J.J. Watt broke his leg in that week 5 against KC.But they do still have Jadaveon Clowney, so he’s always a threat. But their promising start was derailed and they are now relying on ex-porn star Tom Savage to salvage their season. 2-6 ain’t getting it done however.

That leaves Jimmy G and the slowly healthying up 49ers. Trent Brown is back, as well as Joe Staley and Eric Reid. The D line is gradually getting more and more pressure, and rattling Savage shouldn’t be too difficult. That leaves it to our offense getting into the end zone.  2 in a row!

    I’m ready for another win. That last win felt good and lets keep that feeling coming.

  2. Winder says:

    Don’t know about the win but I do believe we get into the end zone. They say winning is contagious so lets hope our mistakes are at a minimum this week.

  3. Lurker John says:

    The Niners are completely capable of beating Houston. Maybe their first blowout of the Shanahan regime.

  4. unca_chuck says:

    Forgot this. As weird as ZZ Top goes, this is weird.

  5. NJ49er says:

    I see Paraag’s shadow Money Baller, Sashi Brown, got bounced in Cleveland.
    That appointment didn’t last long huh?
    Paraag is attached at the hip with Jed.
    Gotta think Dr Daddy has more confidence in Paraag than Jed.

  6. Nipper says:

    Lets beat Houston and at least the Niners aren’t the Browns! The Niners have the brains and brawn to beat Houston. So do it.

  7. Spitblood says:

    How awesome is it to be a 49er fan? Just years and years of losing. Do you know what years of losing makes you? It makes you a loser. But never fear, you’ll all get ’em next year. LMAO!

  8. Berger says:

    These two songs were on the same 45. I think this was the ‘A’ side and Houston was the ‘B’ side..This is a great song!

  9. NJ49er says:

    Here’s a very similar account between Cleveland and SF with regard to Ownership faux pas.
    Perhaps The Yorks, et al have finally recognized that football begins, and ends, with football guys?


  10. 12th Man says:

    Niners by 7 today.

  11. Winder says:

    Without Brown I think we are in trouble. I would have picked us to win but not so sure now.

  12. Winder says:

    Mistakes will kill us.

    • Lurker John says:

      Cleaning that one thing up might elevate this team into a legitimate threat. So many errors this season, of all varieties.

  13. Irish Kevin says:

    Pretty soon any HARD tackle is going to be a penalty

  14. Winder says:

    Yay defense

  15. 12th Man says:

    Jimmy G slinging it.

  16. Irish Kevin says:

    Where is the D today??

  17. Lurker John says:

    Who wouldn’t like to have DeAndre Hopkins in the house? I’ve liked that guy for years. Fucking ballerina.

  18. Lurker John says:

    Ol’ Shittie is one angry, angry dude.

  19. Lurker John says:

    Man, how does he make those throws.

  20. 12th Man says:

    Need to go more dink and dunk with occasional shots, trying to go down field too much.

  21. 12th Man says:

    Man not Foster

  22. Lurker John says:

    Yeah, why not Coyle for once (sorry Brock).

  23. Nipper says:

    Jimmy G. keeps making the throws.

  24. Nipper says:

    Hyde fails to catch. Ouch!

  25. 12th Man says:

    Penalties keep killing it.

  26. Flavor says:

    Carlos Hyde. WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT?????

  27. Lurker John says:

    One thing the Niner D needs to start doing better is forcing turnovers.

  28. Lurker John says:

    Mass pressure on Jimmy today.

  29. Lurker John says:

    Hyde boned that one big time. Gotta pick up your QB when he gets drilled.

  30. Nipper says:

    52 yard FG.

  31. 12th Man says:


  32. Lurker John says:

    Gould has been phenomenal.

  33. Irish Kevin says:

    The End zone is still but a dream away! 🤬😡

  34. Lurker John says:

    Witherspoon has really improved at coming up to stuff RB’s.

  35. 12th Man says:

    Savage looks concussed to me.

  36. Lurker John says:

    What a grab!

  37. 12th Man says:

    The OW finally show up

  38. Lurker John says:

    Garroppolo is a stud!!

  39. Lurker John says:

    I agree 12th, he really got his bell rung on that hit by Dumervil.

  40. 12th Man says:

    Woo Hoo

  41. Lurker John says:


  42. Irish Kevin says:

    Why aren’t they using that Juckxyz to power run that ball in, Hyde got in but he was almost stopped!!

  43. 12th Man says:

    JG looks like the real deal to me.

  44. 12th Man says:

    Yates is QB, savage is damaged.

  45. Lurker John says:

    That’s it for Savage.

  46. Lurker John says:

    Niners get in the EZ so infrequently they didn’t even have a decent celebration ready. All Hyde could think of is to flex his biceps. lol

  47. Lurker John says:

    Savage’s hand was twitching after Dumervil’s hit. That was nasty.

  48. Lurker John says:

    Let’s get a turnover!

  49. Lurker John says:

    TJ fucking Yates, world beater.

  50. Lurker John says:

    Somebody cut Johnson.

    • 12th Man says:

      Johnson beat like a drum two times in a row, Hopkins schooled him. Witherspoon doing better against Hopkins.

  51. Lurker John says:

    Terrible defensive effort there.

  52. unca_chuck says:

    Selah really wimps out on 3rd down. That 1st down by Yates was horrible. We had 3 linemen lined up on the right and no one on the left. Yates had the whole right side wide open. Stupid.

  53. unca_chuck says:

    Hopkins is one of the best. We should be doubling him.

  54. 12th Man says:

    Lucky for Hyde

  55. 12th Man says:

    Take a shot to the EZ

  56. 12th Man says:

    Great drive by JG

  57. unca_chuck says:

    Nice. A TD would have been gravy but I’m glad we answered their score with one.

  58. unca_chuck says:

    Raiders coming up ant-small in their big game.

  59. unca_chuck says:

    If Yates in out there we should blitz every fucking play.

  60. Lurker John says:

    Hopkins is only 25 years old. Seems like he’s been around forever.

  61. 12th Man says:

    No doubt Niners are competitive just by adding Jimmy

  62. Lurker John says:

    He’s had someone in his face virtually every play and he still makes his throws. Imagine what he’ll do with a good line in front of him.

  63. Lurker John says:

    They can’t stop Yates. He’s picking them apart. Unbelievable.

  64. Lurker John says:

    Don’t do anything different. don’t change anything, just keep running fucking johnson out there all day long. All fucking day.

  65. 12th Man says:

    Need to have Witherspoon follow Hopkins wherever he lines up. Johnson getting easily beaten.

  66. Lurker John says:

    These two are unstoppable.

  67. Lurker John says:

    That’s just too easy on two straight drives.

  68. 12th Man says:

    Eject that bastard

  69. Lurker John says:

    Dontae need to be looking at a career change, maybe line cook at Denny’s.

  70. 12th Man says:

    Intentional helmet to helmet against the QB.

  71. Lurker John says:

    Clowney is abusing Zane Beadles. Another dude that needs to go bye bye.

    • 12th Man says:

      To be fair to Beadles he is a C/G not a tackle going against one of the NFL’s best without help, tough task.

  72. 12th Man says:

    Another good drive by JG but they have to get in the EZ more, FG are not usually going to be enough.

  73. Lurker John says:

    Schlereth is just gushing over the Texans. He’s going to need a tissue to wipe off his chin with.

  74. Winder says:

    I had a feeling it was gonna be one of these kinds of game. Whoever makes the most mistakes will lose this one. I think by now everyone in the world knows we have to fix our Oline. No QB can live long behind this kind of crap.

  75. unca_chuck says:

    Where’s the pressure? Beadles is horrible.

  76. 12th Man says:

    Johnson benched, Mabin replaced him, no surprise, Johnson sucked dick all day….See what I did there?

  77. Lurker John says:

    Take a shot deep to Goodwin.

  78. 12th Man says:

    Brieda up the gut, again?

  79. Lurker John says:

    This guy throws some fucking darts. Wow.

  80. Winder says:

    Fucking mistakes. We do this all the time. our line needs to figure it out

  81. 12th Man says:

    Breida is too small for up the gut runs but they keep doing it. Penalties AGAIN!

  82. Irish Kevin says:

    This is why the OLine should be top priority next year, penalties is because you are getting beat!!

  83. Winder says:


  84. 12th Man says:


  85. Lurker John says:


  86. Lurker John says:

    Great play call by Shanny!

  87. Lurker John says:

    This guy makes the whole receiving corps look like a different unit. Celek actually looks like a receiver now. JG does what all the great ones do, he spreads the ball around. Much harder to defend when an offense does that.

  88. Winder says:

    I think Gore just made a 100 yards today

  89. 12th Man says:

    Somebody cover Hopkins and somebody else hit Yates.

  90. 12th Man says:

    2 drops by White, no loss to the Niners.

  91. 12th Man says:

    Texans players dropping like flies in this game.

  92. 12th Man says:

    Unreal, 3 penalties in a row.

  93. Lurker John says:

    Penalties are just off the charts. Incredibly frustrating to watch.

  94. Lurker John says:

    Dangerous situation here.

  95. unca_chuck says:

    Criminy. This line is flat terrible without Brown. The domino effect it creates is fucked up.

    I love the quick passes. It ain’t a 1st down but it gives us a shot.

  96. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. For once we get the call.

  97. 12th Man says:

    First dumb thing I’ve seen from Jimmy

  98. unca_chuck says:

    Pinion is the Baalke gift that keeps on giving.
