The Walking Dead

Well, walking wounded anyway. As of now, Joe Staley, Mike McGlinchey, Westie Richberg, and Dante Pettis all have knee injuries. All are questionable.  However, Pettis is the only one ruled out for next game here in the Ohlone Indian Burial Grounds against AZ. Matt Brieda has a shoulder injury, but should be ‘fine’ according to Shanahan, Garćon’s ankle should be OK, and Goodwin’s quad/hammy is still an issue. Solly Thomas also had a shoulder injury but should be back. Tartt, yes another shoulder injury, is expected to be back as well, although Exum has played pretty well in Tartt’s absence. And Sherman’s calf will have him out one more week as well.

The good news is Kendrick Bourne had himself a nice game last week. CJ BeatHard was beaten pretty hard as he fought for yards like his predecessor who was knocked out for the year. All in all though, Beathard had a very good game, and he should have been the winner, however, we still make crucial drops at the worst times, and what could have been a touchdown for Celek ended up being an 80 yard return the other way. The much-maligned defense actually kept the Chargers out of the end zone, but the damage was done. What should have been a one point lead for the Niners ended up being a 9 point lead for the Dawgs. A lead we couldn’t overcome as our late comeback was undone by a sack/pick.

AZ? Well, they are a completely shitty team that we should be able to handle. Sam Badford, he of the 4 picks and 3 fumbles in 3.5 games, was benched for their savior Josh Rosen. Rosen has a tough row to hoe, even with a shit-I-should-have-retired-when-we-were-decent Larry Fitzgerald still playing. He’s off to a slow start, but nothing says ‘let’s get back on track’ like a visit to Santa Clara for Fitzgerald.

That being said, I think we win going away. 28-13.

    Shaman Medicine Man Detox game?
    Cleansing of the evil Spirits I hope?
    Bring sage and/or Jimsonweed.
    Can’t hurt…

    9ers 24-14
    Win for me too 😀

    12th, you need to bring some eyes of newt and some jimsonweed (or just weed) to sprinkle on the field . . .

    Seems like the 49ers have been on the road all year, oh yeah they have. Well their 1-0 at home and yes they should steamroll a very shitty Arizona team to the tune of 34-16

  4. NJ49er says:

    Jed should find some Ohlone Elders and, get them seats in the Owner’s Suite too.
    Seek higher authority intervention with the Spirits.
    We need to make Peace.

  5. NJ49er says:

    Could The Youngstown Gohblome Elders smoke a Peace Pipe with the Ohlone Elders before the game and give way to a lasting Peace Treaty?

  6. unca_chuck says:

    Let’s hope. My concern is more injuries. We are getting to the point where we will have third-stringers out there.

    • NJ49er says:

      Can’t help but think there’s a Curse involved Chuck.
      Gohblome Tribe or not.
      Take nothing for granted.
      Seek Spiritual Detox…anyway possible 😀

    Most of our O-line is banged up and we still can’t tackle. AZ is getting their feelers with Rosen and since we don’t know how to rush to passer yet we will probably take it up the shorts. AZ 23-20.

  8. unca_chuck says:

    AZ is pretty awful. I think we can take this one.

  9. unca_chuck says:

    If not, we are looking at a 1-7 start.

    Chuck would you contact me plz.

  11. rtfirefly says:

    We think we have receiver problems. This guy on the Colts, Pascal, has dropped two Luck passes right off his hands. Both really hurt. These were passes a high schooler would catch. Luck still looks awesome, but playing at Foxboro is a daunting task, and the Colts have half the talent that teams like KC have.

    Seriously, 3 minutes of commercials after an interception? Split-screen commercials while guys are running back to the huddle after a play? Massive pass offense scoring (NBA All-Star Game anyone)? The NFL is gradually losing me. They want to blame lower ratings on kneeling. Pfffffft

    LOL! Grant Cohn (“Follower”) is such a hack. He posts on the Webzone now and then, but I didn’t rip him directly like everybody else does. I just now used sarcasm which he well understands. Haha, fun.

    Frank Nunz’ (The Fudgehammer) son posts there too more rarely (“Wiliisfn4life”). Dude knows football better than most. Dead as a doornail over there. Lot of bandwagon fans left with Jimmy G.’s injury. Don’t feel bad, Chuck.

    • Winder says:

      Lol, we 49er fans have seen this before. We don’t jump ship when things go wrong. I still have total faith with our current FO. I do think we will be on the lookout for some new coaches this off-season though. I just hope CJ doesn’t get creamed before he gets to play behind a decent Oline he really deserves that.

    What’s so great about bands like the B-52s is that bands like them, and Blondie, and the Talking Heads killed disco dead. A blessing to all music fans.

  14. rtfirefly says:

    Disco DOA after The New Wave. Thank God.

  15. rtfirefly says:

    One more, Donna Summers don’t let the door hit you too hard…

  16. rtfirefly says:

    100 degrees for two weeks straight ending the first day of autumn. 90 yesterday. 50 today with a wind chill of 40-. Welcome to The Front Range!
    You wonder why I posted that unusual music yesterday. Winter is Coming!

    The Niners have so many injuries right now I can’t keep up. The Cards stink, but Rosen is unknown. Tough call. Niners 20-17.

    Dennis, are you listening? Bet the Under.

  17. rtfirefly says:

    Tough bet. I didn’t realize the line was 40-41. In this high scoring league, lol.

  18. Winder says:

    Looks like we will have our starting Oline for tomorrow’s game. If that is the case them maybe we do have a shot

  19. Winder says:

    I think both Brieda, and Goodwin are also playing tomorrow. Hopefully we can score some points and get Taylor involved..
