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.
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.
The Niners are completely capable of beating Houston. Maybe their first blowout of the Shanahan regime.
Forgot this. As weird as ZZ Top goes, this is weird.
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.
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.
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!
Keep laughing Spit it’s all entertainment anyway.
I guess you were never a SF Giants fan.
berger- I was gonna post this one yesterday. I always thought Dino was a good singer.
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!
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?
Geez? where’d that avatar come from?
Niners by 7 today.
I hope Jimmy G. has a big day. Too bad Trent Brown is out.
Without Brown I think we are in trouble. I would have picked us to win but not so sure now.
Mistakes will kill us.
Cleaning that one thing up might elevate this team into a legitimate threat. So many errors this season, of all varieties.
Pretty soon any HARD tackle is going to be a penalty
the game sure isn’t what it used to be
Jimmy G slinging it.
Where is the D today??
Who wouldn’t like to have DeAndre Hopkins in the house? I’ve liked that guy for years. Fucking ballerina.
Ol’ Shittie is one angry, angry dude.
Man, how does he make those throws.
Need to go more dink and dunk with occasional shots, trying to go down field too much.
Man not Foster
Yeah, why not Coyle for once (sorry Brock).
Jimmy G. keeps making the throws.
Hyde fails to catch. Ouch!
Stopped running, no excuse for that.
Penalties keep killing it.
Carlos Hyde. WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT?????
One thing the Niner D needs to start doing better is forcing turnovers.
Mass pressure on Jimmy today.
Hyde boned that one big time. Gotta pick up your QB when he gets drilled.
52 yard FG.
Gould has been phenomenal.
The End zone is still but a dream away! 🤬😡
They’ll get in today
Witherspoon has really improved at coming up to stuff RB’s.
Savage looks concussed to me.
What a grab!
The OW finally show up
Garroppolo is a stud!!
I agree 12th, he really got his bell rung on that hit by Dumervil.
Why aren’t they using that Juckxyz to power run that ball in, Hyde got in but he was almost stopped!!
Great run by Hyde there Kevin.
Yes but how many time has he been stopped on the 1 or 2 yard line. Walsh would have used Tom Rathman in that situation
JG looks like the real deal to me.
Yates is QB, savage is damaged.
That’s it for Savage.
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
Savage’s hand was twitching after Dumervil’s hit. That was nasty.
Let’s get a turnover!
TJ fucking Yates, world beater.
Somebody cut Johnson.
Johnson beat like a drum two times in a row, Hopkins schooled him. Witherspoon doing better against Hopkins.
Terrible defensive effort there.
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.
Absolutely. Yates sucks and he just walked his team down the field for an easy TD.
Hopkins is one of the best. We should be doubling him.
Exactly what I was thinking.
Lucky for Hyde
Take a shot to the EZ
Great drive by JG
Nice. A TD would have been gravy but I’m glad we answered their score with one.
Raiders coming up ant-small in their big game.
If Yates in out there we should blitz every fucking play.
Hopkins is only 25 years old. Seems like he’s been around forever.
No doubt Niners are competitive just by adding Jimmy
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.
They can’t stop Yates. He’s picking them apart. Unbelievable.
Don’t do anything different. don’t change anything, just keep running fucking johnson out there all day long. All fucking day.
Need to have Witherspoon follow Hopkins wherever he lines up. Johnson getting easily beaten.
These two are unstoppable.
That’s just too easy on two straight drives.
Eject that bastard
Dontae need to be looking at a career change, maybe line cook at Denny’s.
Intentional helmet to helmet against the QB.
Clowney is abusing Zane Beadles. Another dude that needs to go bye bye.
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.
Another good drive by JG but they have to get in the EZ more, FG are not usually going to be enough.
Schlereth is just gushing over the Texans. He’s going to need a tissue to wipe off his chin with.
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.
Where’s the pressure? Beadles is horrible.
Johnson benched, Mabin replaced him, no surprise, Johnson sucked dick all day….See what I did there?
Take a shot deep to Goodwin.
Brieda up the gut, again?
This guy throws some fucking darts. Wow.
Fucking mistakes. We do this all the time. our line needs to figure it out
Breida is too small for up the gut runs but they keep doing it. Penalties AGAIN!
This is why the OLine should be top priority next year, penalties is because you are getting beat!!
Great play call by Shanny!
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.
I think Gore just made a 100 yards today
Amazing guy, just keeps going long after I thought he would.
Somebody cover Hopkins and somebody else hit Yates.
2 drops by White, no loss to the Niners.
Texans players dropping like flies in this game.
Unreal, 3 penalties in a row.
Penalties are just off the charts. Incredibly frustrating to watch.
Dangerous situation here.
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.
Wow. For once we get the call.
First dumb thing I’ve seen from Jimmy
Pinion is the Baalke gift that keeps on giving.
Seems like he has one of those in most games
