(itsonlypreseasonbut) It’s GAME DAY ! ! !

Well, here we go with the 2018 football season. The Giants are staggering around .500 and don’t seem capable of passing up the myriad teams in front of them for the division, let alone with wildcard.  So football is coming just at the right time. Everyone knows the issues (O line, D line), the struggles (defensive backfield), the position fights (defensive backfield, WR, backup RB), and the tough schedule out of the gate.

So, let’s get ready to RUMBLE!!!

Here’s a little trip down memory lane . . .

    chuck- thanks for that link. I never realized just how many good players we lost In 1977. I just know we really sucked in 78.

  2. unca_chuck says:

    Here’s the players sitting for tonight

    Arik Armstead (hamstring)
    Jonathan Cooper (knee)
    Brock Coyle (hip)
    J.P. Flynn (knee)
    Joshua Garnett (knee)
    Marcell Harris (Achilles; not cleared for game action)
    Richard Sherman (hamstring)
    Trent Taylor (back; not cleared for game action)
    Fred Warner (chest)
    Cole Wick (knee)
    K’Waun Williams (ankle)

    Warner is a surprise.

  3. unca_chuck says:

    There you go.. DFB!

  4. unca_chuck says:

    Ward missed this play

  5. alleykat69 says:

    71 for Dallas was clearly off sides of the TD pass. Ward still got burned badly

  6. Irish Kevin says:

    Some rust on Jimmy G

  7. Lurker John says:

    Wow, one play and Kittle is out. That didn’t look good.

  8. Lurker John says:

    No pass rush again. Jimmy Ward is not a CB, he’s a safety. He really boned that play.

  9. unca_chuck says:

    Thomas looks like he’s toast. That did not look good..

  10. Lurker John says:

    Niners dropping like flies already.

  11. Lurker John says:

    The Cowgirls are flying around.

  12. Lurker John says:

    One mediocre series for Jimmy G.

  13. unca_chuck says:

    Jimmy G missed his only deep ball and got his TE hurt to boot.

  14. unca_chuck says:

    So much for this game. Run blocking was an F. Line play was mediocre. Pass coverage bad ST got a sack, then got hurt. Now Breida’s hurt.

  15. Lurker John says:

    The one thing I hope the Niners haven’t done is read their press clippings. All the hype around their end of season run is just that, hype. They look slow out there right now. They’ve accomplished nothing. This is a clean slate and everyone in the league is hungry to win. They’d better be ready to go every single week.

  16. unca_chuck says:

    I don;t think Lynch and Shanahan would let that happen.

    • Lurker John says:

      I agree, and they talk about it, but it’s ultimately up to the players. Nice play by Rueben.

  17. Lurker John says:

    Shit, watch Looney and Martin turn all pro.

  18. unca_chuck says:

    Not a lot of flags.. I hope this is a trend.

  19. alleykat69 says:

    Flag they should have thrown was on the TD plsy

  20. Lurker John says:

    Man, they not even messing with the sidelines, just taking these guys right off the field.

  21. unca_chuck says:

    I think all, except for kittle were head injuries.

  22. unca_chuck says:

    Nice jiob by Robinson. Underthrown a bit.

  23. alleykat69 says:

    And that drive fizzles out in the red zone..

  24. unca_chuck says:

    Should be a hold

  25. unca_chuck says:

    CJ can’t throw that ball and not expect it to get tipped or picked.

  26. alleykat69 says:

    Yeah I hate short QB’s,so glad we have a tall one..

  27. unca_chuck says:

    Getting schooled pretty good here.

  28. unca_chuck says:

    Reed making plays. As is J Taylor.

  29. unca_chuck says:

    I can only imagine the giddiness at Skeebs site..

  30. unca_chuck says:

    Bourne sells the PI. Nice.

  31. unca_chuck says:

    better late than ahhhhh nevermind,

  32. Lurker John says:

    I like Bourne and think he has a chance to be a good player. He made some plays last year. Jullian Taylor was the best defensive player of the half and it wasn’t that close. He looks like a handful to block and plays with a lot of energy. He could be a steal. I’m not sure George Kittle is ever going to stay healthy. He’s talented but seems unable to even fall down without getting hurt.

  33. unca_chuck says:

    Pettis an early standout. Should been a TD but he beat the DB like a rented mule.

  34. unca_chuck says:

    CJ telegraphed that one, Mostert was open.

  35. unca_chuck says:

    Still no pass rush.

  36. unca_chuck says:

    If nothing, Boldin is playing well.

  37. Lurker John says:

    Looking through the link Chuck posted, I see that Dicky Moegle played for the Niners for a few years. I wonder if any of you remember the famous play he was involved in while at Rice. I read about it when I was a little kid, in one of those strange but true football books. I thought his name looked familiar. There’s pics of it on the Web:

    “In the 1954 Cotton Bowl Classic against Alabama, Moegle was involved in one of college football’s most famous plays. With Rice leading 7–6, Moegle broke through on a sweep from Rice’s five-yard line, and was running down the sideline in front of Alabama’s bench on his way to a touchdown. Alabama’s Tommy Lewis, without putting on his helmet, jumped off the bench and tackled Moegle. Seeing what happened, referee Cliff Shaw awarded a 95-yard touchdown on the play, and Rice went on to win the game 28–6.[2] Moegle finished with 265 rushing yards, which was a Cotton Bowl Classic record until the 2008 game when Missouri’s Tony Temple rushed for 281 yards.[2] He finished with game records of 265 yards on 11 carries for an average of 24.1 yards per attempt and 3 touchdowns.[3] Moegle and Lewis later appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show to talk about the play.”

  38. Lurker John says:

    The Niners have had some great football players throughout their history. Some of the old timers are classics. What a colorful history.

  39. unca_chuck says:

    Liked that 2 pt conversion. I guess it’s good to practice these situations since there’s so little practice time in training camp..

  40. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah the Niners were a hard-luck franchise for a long time. From the Browns always beating them in their early history to their collapse in 1957, and their suckage for the next 13 years and subsequent Dallas losses, they had a lot of good teams that always fell short, and a lot of bad teams that flailed. Took them a long time to finally get over the hump. From the Morabitos to the Eddie D era, the team has always been about family, My one and only true football team.

    Hey, they won . . .

  41. Lurker John says:

    No shit. I turned it off an hour ago.

  42. Lurker John says:

    Richie James had a nice first game.
