Game Day III – Season of the Witch

These tough games are coming fast and furious for the upstart youngsters that are the 49ers. They played tough but sloppy against the Vikings (a game they should have won by 14), they played great against the Lions. For 3 quarters. Now we face the hottest QB in one of the hardest road venues in the NFL, Arrowhead Stadium.

They lost their best offensive weapon in Marquise Goodwin in that Minn loss, and were down to 3rd string LBs in the Detroit win. The good news is Malcolm Smith will finally play a meaningful down after missing his first 18 games. Even more significant than that is the return of Reuben Foster. So I think the defense rallies.

Which is why I think the 49ers win tomorrow. Yeah, it’s another early start for a west coast team in a hostile environment, against the hottest QB in the NFL in Pat Mahomes, but I think their defense will be their downfall. I think our defense makes more plays against our improved D (and a hopefully healthier Ahkello Witherspoon), so we win.

My concern is what it has been since before training camp started. And that is our pass rush.  DeForest Buckner is actually #2 in sacks at 3.5, but the rest of the team is at 1.5. Which sucks. The return of our LBs, and the havoc they bring (I see Foster blitzing) should be able to slow down the Mahomes express.

    Good fucking God. Garcion not even aware of the ball in the air.

  2. Maggie Horowitz says:

    I thought KC’s D sucked

  3. Lurker John says:

    He might’ve hyperextended it, which isn’t much better but it’s better than a torn ACL.

  4. unca_chuck says:

    We can’t do shit against the worst defense in the NFL. By a long shot.

    The illegal block in the bak was pointless and retarded. You cannot make that mistake on a play like that. That’s an unsportsmanlike if it was Mahomes though.

  5. Lurker John says:

    Good to see Breida back out there.

  6. alleykat69 says:

    What really stinks I have Harrison Buckner as my FG kicker, and they only score TD’s and he only gets 1 point, very frustrating..

  7. unca_chuck says:

    They consistently run the WRs deep to open up the underneath,

  8. Irish Kevin says:

    Seems every team has a guy who leaks out as a release valve for the QB except the Niners

  9. Lurker John says:

    This team is incapable of covering backs out of the backfield.

  10. unca_chuck says:

    Lucky they didn’t get a flag there.

  11. unca_chuck says:

    Unreal how we let these backs release unchecked.

  12. unca_chuck says:

    2 penalties a play now. LOL. We hit 15 yet?

  13. unca_chuck says:

    They must have 5 firdt downs by penalty,.

  14. Irish Kevin says:

    Can we make a good tackle

  15. Lurker John says:

    9 penalties for 106 yards. In the first half. That’s embarrassing Shanahan.

  16. unca_chuck says:

    Foster looking rusty.

  17. Irish Kevin says:

    The way the Niners are playing KC can bring in the second string and still win this game

  18. unca_chuck says:

    Selah has been getting burned by that play all year. Fucking stupid. They’vcve run the same version of that play 8 times already

  19. Lurker John says:

    35-7 at the half. I expected a rout, but not like this. Yes, this is a team on the rise. Shanahan is looking more and more like a guy who is out of his depth.

  20. Irish Kevin says:

    Piss poor tackling

  21. unca_chuck says:

    KC looks to get the over by themselves.

  22. Irish Kevin says:

    Someone needs to get ito every defenders face at the half

  23. unca_chuck says:

    Useless play there. Go to the end zone.

  24. unca_chuck says:

    Another useless play. This does nothing.

  25. unca_chuck says:

    Down 4 scores still. And now Sherman is done. This season is wasting away before our eyes.

  26. Irish Kevin says:

    The tackling had better get a whole lot better in the second half

  27. Irish Kevin says:

    Otherwise the score can easily be 70-… whatever

  28. unca_chuck says:

    ALl these drafts for defensive helpo and we still can’t rush the paser. I knew we should have gone after Khalil Mack when we had the shot,

  29. Lurker John says:

    What the hell happened to Sherman?

  30. unca_chuck says:

    He was limping badly off the field at the half. 2 guys were helping him. Didn’t see what happened,

  31. unca_chuck says:

    A Smith 214 yards at the half against Green Bay

  32. alleykat69 says:

    Sherman has a calf injury.Probably won’t return, doesn’t matter anyway sit him

  33. Irish Kevin says:

    A tackle, it was a tackle

  34. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. We stopped a dump to the right.

  35. unca_chuck says:

    Our interior line does nothing. No pressure at all up the middle.

  36. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. Through no fault of our own we stop KC. KC has the propensity to get soft in the 2nd half,

    Just like Stanford lat night, we’ll come back!

  37. Lurker John says:

    Breida back!

  38. unca_chuck says:

    Fuck, Jimmy. You can’t miss that.

  39. Lurker John says:

    Look at that, Speilman agreeing with me about our high priced QB needing to make a throw after he missed a wide open Garcon. After all the heat I took here for pointing it out.

  40. unca_chuck says:

    Hey now. Were was this in the 1st half? Totally on the defense now.

  41. Lurker John says:

    Well, that looked a hell of a lot better.

  42. unca_chuck says:

    19 down. All day left. Just need a 3 and out.

  43. Lurker John says:

    Need good defense the rest of the game.

  44. unca_chuck says:

    A turnover would be nice.

  45. Lurker John says:

    Need a turnover!

  46. unca_chuck says:

    We are running out of DBs.

  47. Lurker John says:

    Bills up 27-0 late in 3rd at MN. Vikings’ fans are probably squawking a lot louder than we are. Any given Sunday…

  48. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. Dodged a bullet there.

  49. alleykat69 says:

    “””””A STOP””””

  50. unca_chuck says:

    Fuck. I swear to God we should fair catch every punt.

  51. Lurker John says:

    It’s nice to have Quise back out there, Breida too. He’s been looking explosive the last couple of games, and Goodwin should open up the passing game.

  52. alleykat69 says:

    Fucking Penalties stop every drive before they Start!!! How many is it now? 12-13?

  53. Lurker John says:


  54. unca_chuck says:

    If we are going to run, we should be going no0-huddle.

  55. Lurker John says:

    That’s 120 yards on the ground after Morris’s run.

  56. unca_chuck says:

    Got to score quick.

  57. Lurker John says:

    Morris and Breida being effective.

  58. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. Nice play there.

  59. Lurker John says:

    Now that was a nice play, Jimmy.

  60. Lurker John says:

    Do they go for 2?

  61. unca_chuck says:

    Jeeeebus, Go for 2.

  62. Lurker John says:


  63. Lurker John says:

    Kittle plays hard when he’s out there, completely unafraid of contact.

  64. alleykat69 says:

    They sure are resilient I’ll give em that much!
    Have a game again, if they stop em on the next series again..

  65. Irish Kevin says:

    Still with the missed tackles

  66. Lurker John says:

    AA whiffs on the tackle.

  67. unca_chuck says:

    Armstead has to make that play.

  68. Lurker John says:

    This officiating is un-fucking-believable.

  69. Maggie Horowitz says:

    They can’t fucking cover anyone.

  70. unca_chuck says:

    Witherspoon is offeing no reisitance.

  71. unca_chuck says:

    If you can;t hand-check, then there’s hold on every pass play in every game.

  72. alleykat69 says:

    So sick of these BS penalties, that extend drives, every fucking time they make a stop a fucking flag comes out!! I’m fucking pissed I’m fuckin not gonna take it anymore!!!

  73. unca_chuck says:

    Fuck. They go back up 3 scores, it’ll be tough. Need a turnover more than ever.

  74. Lurker John says:

    Somebody make a damn play!

  75. unca_chuck says:

    Jesus. Crystal Todd all over again.

  76. 12th Man says:

    looked like his back

  77. Irish Kevin says:

    First game back, gets hurt, that would suck for us

  78. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, took the brunt of 2 guys falling on him.

  79. alleykat69 says:

    Thought concussion..

  80. alleykat69 says:

    Yeah let’s throw another fucking flag!!

  81. Lurker John says:

    That’s a fucking hold!

  82. unca_chuck says:

    They might as well disallow tackling in the NFL.

  83. unca_chuck says:

    He pulled him down by the shoulder. No penalty.

  84. 12th Man says:

    need a pick

  85. unca_chuck says:

    Bad call. Need the stop here.

  86. Lurker John says:

    What fucking horsecollar tackle!!!

  87. unca_chuck says:

    That looked like a miss

  88. Lurker John says:

    that did look like a miss. unreviewable

  89. unca_chuck says:

    still a 2 score game. Got to get it done.

  90. alleykat69 says:

    Good drive, Need The TD quick!

  91. unca_chuck says:

    Time to start looking end zone

  92. Maggie Horowitz says:

    Wow, a screen!!

  93. Lurker John says:

    have to go for it. more injuries

  94. alleykat69 says:
