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!
All you need is a decent punt there and he fucking shanks it.
Baalke’s eternal gift to the Niners.
I was hoping that ball would get picked for that very reason.
Meanwhile Lechler has been booming them all game long.
Need a turnover.
24 yard punt. What a joke.
Jesus. Defensive holding on a run???
Hopkins jizzfest all day long.
How many nose tackles get flagged for holding on run plays? 2-3 all year? ONLY THE NINERS.
Dumervil has been effective of late, whether or not it shows up in sack numbers. He’s getting his pressure.
Let’s finish this thing!
A stacked D line and they run into the teeth of it, dumb.
I don’t care what anyone says about Hyde or anyone else, these guys don’t have anywhere to go. This game is case in point. Any decent blocking at all and this team would be putting 120 yards a game on the ground, or more.
Another mediocre punt by Pinion. They needed points there.
I CALLED IT BABY!
Thats the one we needed
Colbert just blew Hopkins up! LOL
Need a FG
KS needs to shelve that read-option, forever.
And there it is.
GOULD IS GOLD!
Saleh needs to attach here.
Offside Lynch, every fucking game.
4 down time
That would have been game
I knew they’d convert that.
What the hell was White doing there? That is a turn over.
4th and 22.
I hope Witherspoon’s knee isn’t that a bad one
Gould is now 30 of 32 on fields goals. Helluva a pickup he’s turning out to be.
WTF is this giving himself up bullshit.
At least they are doubling Hopkins
At least Mabin is in his general vicinity most of the time, unlike Johnson.
Back to back road wins, JG needs a contract, cut the shit and pay the man.
This was a tough game but both Offense and defense stepped up when they had to.
We have a winning streak! On the road no less! First winning streak of the Shana-Lynch era!
Hope for the future!
First Qb to win his first 2 road games since Jim Plunkett.
Yeah, as bad as the penalties are , and some of these weird 3rd down formations, the team is coming around. Looks like the Raiders are falling back to Earth rather hard. Derek Carr is starting to look like his brother.
Hall of Famer Russell Wilson with 3 picks today, so far.
Carson Wentz out for the game with a knee injury. That might be the Eagles season there.
Hell of a game though. Foles as savior? Got ‘em to within 1.
Jags take down the Seahawks.
Pending a snap or two from the victory formation. Big brouhaha at the end with multiple flags and a couple of ejections. POS Michael Bennett with a dirty play to spark it all.
Pete Carroll flagged for coming into the huddle. Idiot.
Wow, what an ending. Big Seahawk (#99) tried to go into the stands after a fan threw an ear of corn at him.
Great catch by Agholor.
Shit didn’t see the. Seattle game but this ram game is nuts. Philly’s season hang in the balance of Wentz’s knee.
The fricking Niners are looking better than the Raiders right now. Derek is starting to look like his brother out there. Oakland has their destiny in their hands after blowing the easy games in their schedule and lay this turd in KC?
Big win by the Iggles. Sets up an NFC West showdown next week between the Hawks and Rams. Hawks win and they lead the division by virtue of the head-to-head tiebreaker.
Yeah, I’m watching the end of the Rams-Eagles game. Great game.
Wentz walked off okay, so hopefully they’re just being cautious.
Talk of an ACL
Just saw that.
At this point I don’t care who wins our division since we can’t. I just hope when the Ram game comes around it is actually meaningful. They are playing good ball right now and probably we would lose but maybe not and nothing could close this season any better than for us to hurt the Rams in some way. Like home field advantage.
After watching each game it becomes more and more obvious our need for an offensive guard. If Nelson from Notre Dame is as good as everybody is saying we’d be foolish to not take him.
This weekend kinda restores my faith in the NFL. A shitload of great games. This Sun night game is pretty good as well. This game has a ton of weird PI calls tho.
No way we take a guard with the 1. We need a guard but not with a top 5 pick. We have NO’s 2nd round pick, and it looks late but we can get Will Hernandez from UTEP or Billy Price from Ohio St.
Point being, we’d be nuts to pass on Barkley for a guard. I think we may even trade up to get him.
We’ll take OG Nelson. It’s the smart choice.
Shit, Ridley runs a 4.35 40 and is a possible top 5 pick I think he’s a reach but he won’t last past the 12th pick.
Shit, I don’t know.This class ain’t WR-heavy. But we need weapons for Garoppolo.
