Game Day! Tiny Titans Tumble . . .

Hey I don’t know. I don’t know too much about the Titans, but Mariota is having a strange year and the Titans are all over the place. Our 3 wins are against teams with a combined 10-30 record, so no great shakes. A win against the Titans would be an indicator of actual improvement over a playoff team. Then again, we are hurt, undermanned, and young. Things that have affected us all year.

Still, if they can somehow get the penalties under control, and keep consistent pressure up on Marcus Mariota, they could come out of this with win #4. Not holding my breath, but I think they pull this one out.

I had 27-14 last week. Not bad.

Today? 31-20. . .

    Niners that is . . .

    Dave Mustaine in his Metallica days

  2. Nipper says:

    Few are up for this game or season. I can tell by the use of music videos that football is on the backburner. For today we still have an injury riddled team waiting for the season to end. Perhaps Jimmy G. will pump some life into the party. The only question remains does he sign long-term?

  3. Lurker John says:

    Assuming a solid draft and some key FA pickups, I expect the Niners to make a significant leap forward next season, perhaps even contend for a wild card spot. Injured guys like Malcolm Smith, Tartt and Ward will be coming back, Foster, Thomas, Colbert and Witherspoon will all have a year under their belts. Joe Williams will be in the fold from the beginning. He’s an unknown, but KS likes him and he’s loaded with talent. JG will be fully entrenched in the offensive scheme.

    They’ve got a ton of cap space, a very good front office and coaching staff and a franchise QB. I don’t see how you can’t get pumped about all of that. Watch the locker room videos from the past few games. You can find them on the Niner’s site. This team is buying in, 100%, and KS and Lynch are leading the way.

  4. unca_chuck says:

    YEah, the NFL is all about quick turnarounds. The trick is to sustain it.

  5. unca_chuck says:

    It already is, Nip . . .

  6. unca_chuck says:

    It’s very hard not to respect the hell out of john Lynch and the job he’s already done. The same goes for Shanahan. The team is young and hungry, and the young guys are getting a good look as well.

    I’m not sure what their feelings are about Carlos Hyde, but they COULD stick with him and use the high pick for an impact guy. Whether Chubb or the CB.

    I know I’vew been saying offense offense offense, but really, there isn’t a sure-fire offensive guy in the top 5 besides Barkley and I’m sure he will be gone by the time we pick.

  7. Irish Kevin says:

    If Hyde is there next year I will be shocked 😮 he has been injury prone the last 2 years, all of a sudden he has a career year? And it just happens to be his contract year? I don’t believe in coincidences!

  8. Lurker John says:

    Fusco’s whiff job took them right out of that drive.

  9. Irish Kevin says:

    I hope they are not going to have trouble in the red zone today

  10. Lurker John says:

    Rams dropping the hammer on the Hawks early, 13-0 with over 5 minutes left in the first.

  11. Lurker John says:

    What’s the verdict on Harold so far this year? I’m not sure I can say one way or another how he’s been. I know he has a couple of sacks, but can’t really speak to his consistency.

  12. Lurker John says:

    Gould has been a freakin’ machine.

  13. unca_chuck says:

    Harold has shown more this year than his previous 4. Not enough to keep him tho.

  14. unca_chuck says:

    Be nice to keep them out of the end zone.

    Fucking red zone problems again.

  15. unca_chuck says:

    Hell of a catch if it stands.

  16. Lurker John says:

    That was a horrible throw Garoppolo.

  17. Lurker John says:

    Just take the sack.

  18. Lurker John says:

    All Quise there.

  19. unca_chuck says:

    Brieda missed his block. One reason Hyde is more effective.

  20. unca_chuck says:

    The run game has stalled out already.

  21. Irish Kevin says:

    Titans 3rd best run defense in the league, the Niners are running the ball 🏈 for what reason?

    • Lurker John says:

      To keep Garoppolo alive would be my guess. TN also has one of the best pass rushes in the league.

  22. Lurker John says:

    Yeah, Breida has been terrible blocking this year. He’s small.

  23. Lurker John says:

    27-0 Rams with 3:30 left in the first half.

  24. Nipper says:

    First Down Niners!

  25. Irish Kevin says:

    This is where Hyde usually fails, they should be using a bigger back

    • Lurker John says:

      Kevin, he has nowhere to run! Not many backs are going to run over the top of a 250 pound NFL linebacker!

  26. Nipper says:

    TD Niners!

  27. unca_chuck says:

    That was a good run by Hyde. The next one he’s hit in the backfield.

    Nice job by Jimmy. TD!

  28. Lurker John says:


  29. unca_chuck says:

    The runs worked in the 1st quarter. They need to keep trying to keep Tenn honest, but I’d try misdirection at this point. Or even a screen or 2. They are getting in quick.

  30. Nipper says:

    Niners rip the ball away!

  31. Lurker John says:


  32. Winder says:

    This is where we go to the juggler

  33. Lurker John says:

    Go for the throat. Deep ball to Quise!

  34. Lurker John says:

    Fuck JG is good at standing in the pocket and making the throw.

  35. Lurker John says:

    LOL. Seattle getting their asses handed to them at home in the first half. Gurley romps for 56 to make it 34-0. I love it.

  36. unca_chuck says:

    What’s nice is the WRs don’t have to adjust to the throw. They are on the money. Therefore they can concentrate on getting upfield.

    Just like that play right there and the one to Taylor.

  37. Lurker John says:

    Hawks booed as they leave the field for halftime.

  38. Lurker John says:

    Huge 3rd down conversion. When JG steps into his throws he’s money. That was a 20 yard bullet. Goodwin is a completely new WR now, a real stud.

  39. unca_chuck says:

    A TD here would be pretty damn tough for Tenn to overcome.

  40. Nipper says:

    Another FG three in first half. Damn better than nothing.

  41. unca_chuck says:

    Shit. A better pass is a TD.

  42. Irish Kevin says:

    Prevent D not working

  43. Lurker John says:


  44. Lurker John says:

    unbelievably bad defense

  45. Winder says:

    if we had an offensive line and a running game this would be a whole different ballgame

  46. Lurker John says:

    No pressure, just let them walk down the field. That has happened multiple times this year.

  47. unca_chuck says:

    Fuck I missed it.

  48. unca_chuck says:

    Selah needs to learn from these situations. They throttled Mariota all 1st half and to give up an easy TD is stupid.

  49. unca_chuck says:

    Losing on the line here.

  50. Lurker John says:

    DJ once again right on the play.

  51. unca_chuck says:

    Wow, ticky tack call. Horrible play be Johnson.

  52. Lurker John says:

    Fucking penalties. Thanks Dontae

  53. Lurker John says:

    That guy just sucks balls

  54. Lurker John says:

    penalty keeps the drive alive, TN starting to take control of the game.

  55. unca_chuck says:

    Nice play by Elvis there

  56. Irish Kevin says:

    Niners need to come out and score and make it a TD

  57. unca_chuck says:

    The Niners have to get into the end zone.

  58. unca_chuck says:

    Wow that was stupid.

  59. unca_chuck says:

    Fuck. Can’t do that.

  60. unca_chuck says:

    At least we pushed them back

  61. Lurker John says:


  62. Lurker John says:

    The drops have gone away for a few games now, but that was a really bad one.

  63. Irish Kevin says:

    The Titans made adjustments at the half, taking it to the D now

  64. unca_chuck says:

    Pass rush in invisible.

    • Lurker John says:

      Buckner had a sack that Johnson’s fucking penalty nullified, but in general that’s something that must be addressed for next year.

  65. Irish Kevin says:

    Not looking good!

  66. unca_chuck says:

    I’m surprised they aren’t throwing more.

  67. Lurker John says:

    Aaron Lynch looks fat to me. Don’t see him coming back.

  68. Irish Kevin says:

    This game is showing what the Niners need to work on. Where is the pass rush, Mariota seems to pick up the blitz very well!

  69. unca_chuck says:

    We get no push up the middle for one thing. And the edge guys are pushed outside.

  70. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. Shit coverage there. You can’t blitz and not get any pressure.

  71. Lurker John says:

    TN dominating now. Taylor dropping an easy first down really screwed the Niners the only time they’ve had the ball. As good as the D can be, there’s a lot of work to be done and holes to be filled. You just can’t survive in the NFL with a shit pass rush and theirs has been bad for years now.

  72. Lurker John says:

    That’s about the third time today Thomas has jumped.

  73. Lurker John says:

    Dontae “The Sieve” Johnson. What a joke. He’s my pet bitch for 2017. I pity the fool who drafted him for their fantasy team.

  74. Lurker John says:

    Pitch and catch, no pressure.

  75. Irish Kevin says:

    This is the difference between playing 2 teams with losing records and playing a team that is headed for the playoffs!

  76. unca_chuck says:

    Once drop can fuck up the whole day.

  77. Winder says:

    we have 46 total yards on the ground

  78. Irish Kevin says:

    Red zone problems!!!

  79. Irish Kevin says:

    The Niners have got to get some O lineman!!!

  80. unca_chuck says:

    Gould is pretty fucking nails.

  81. Lurker John says:

    so much work to do.

  82. Lurker John says:

    13 FG’s in the past 2 plus games.

  83. Lurker John says:

    TN is clearly superior on the LOS, on both sides of the ball. Dominate play on both lines is what the Niners are aspiring to. Right now it is pure hit and miss, especially the O-line, which is horrible.

  84. unca_chuck says:

    Got to stop them here and now.

  85. Lurker John says:

    3rd and long, let’s get this.

  86. unca_chuck says:

    Taylor is pissing me off today.

  87. Lurker John says:

    Gould has now made more FG’s than any other season, and 34/36 overall.

  88. Lurker John says:

    Get fucking Breida out of there!

  89. Winder says:

    fuck it

  90. unca_chuck says:

    Jesus. He didn’t get off the line. That isn’t PI.

  91. Lurker John says:

    This tram has been brutalized by penalties this year.

  92. Lurker John says:

    That was a touchdown and great play call.

  93. unca_chuck says:

    We’d better not play soft.

  94. unca_chuck says:

    They only had like 3 today. But they were killers.

  95. Lurker John says:

    That TD would’ve been great. Now all TN needs is a FG.

  96. Lurker John says:

    Need a turnover.

  97. unca_chuck says:

    Or a stop. More pressure.

  98. Lurker John says:

    Johnson 2 yards back of the play. LOL
