For What It’s Worth This Game Day

Here we are at week 6 and we are already playing out the string. Sad? Yes. Depressing? Yes. But hey, at least we aren’t the Raiders. Jon Gruden, he of the 10 year/$100 million deal, has already alienated the team, the fan base, and has dismantled a promising Raiders team. All at the altar of his own hubris. The Raiders, who were looking to give their Oakland fans at least a couple solid seasons before they wing their way to Sin City in a couple seasons, are instead 1-5 and in complete disarray offensively and defensively.

But I digress. Here in Ninertown, we are suffering the slings and arrows of multiple injuries and a fairly porous defense that has left defensive coordinator Robert Saleh on the proverbial hot seat going forward. The offensive scuffling is understandable as the 49ers have lost to injury their starting QB, their starting WR, their starting and #2 running backs, and have suffered dings and injuries to just about all of the offensive linemen. A line thin to begin with.

Tonight we are traveling to the unfrozen grass of Green Bay. Site of some recent success a few regimes back. But again I digress. The newly constituted and semi-turned over lineup of the current team is game enough. Our backup QB is suddenly fighting for his very NFL life as his last game was a comedy of errors and strip sacks. The 49ers racked up yards and stats but failed in the end to even keep the game close. Of course the pass catchers did their best to not help CJ Beater by dropping the obligatory 1 or 2 passes to kill drives and cause turnovers.

So, this season has once again become an extended training camp for the current roster. The defensive backfield, which had such promise a short few weeks ago looks terrible as Ahkello Witherspoon becomes the target of unrelenting pressure as no one wants to throw to Richard Sherman’s side of the field, and we cannot get anyone near the opposing QB.  Our safeties have been an exercise in frustration as they are nearly always out of position on screen passes, and get burned deep regularly. But again I digress.

Not sure how we win tonight. Green Bay does at will what we don’t defend well. Screens and broken plays. The ONLY way we win is to discover that missing pass rush. Rodgers isn’t exactly at the peak of health, and is nursing injuries of his own, so we won’t be chasing him around the field, but he is a master at throwing from outside the pocket.

Pressure must come from the edges and we MUST hold the middle to get to Rodgers. Otherwise it’s a bloodbath.

We as usual keep it close but fail in the end.

24-16 Packers.

    We went press man and it has worked pretty damn well.

  2. alleykat69 says:

    Doesn’t hurt they don’t have Cobb&Allison!
    Rodgers not on same page with his rookie WR’s

  3. unca_chuck says:

    We are doing it backwards. The coverage is letting the linemen in to get sacks. Just need to go play-action right here and go downfield.

  4. unca_chuck says:

    Fuck this. They are loading the box.

  5. unca_chuck says:

    GB out of timeouts so a fuerst diown here would nearly seal the game

  6. unca_chuck says:

    Stupid. That NEEDS to be a quick pass.

  7. Maggie Horowitz says:

    Fucking get rid of the ball!!!!!!!!!!

  8. unca_chuck says:

    Shanahan is playing right into GBs defense. Stupid set of plays these last 2 drives.

    Time for a fucking turnover.

  9. Maggie Horowitz says:

    Of FUCKING COURSE

  10. alleykat69 says:

    Think Foster just got his bell ring on that tackle

  11. unca_chuck says:

    At least we are blitzing.

  12. unca_chuck says:

    Can CJ pull this out? I hope the fucking play calling is better. We’ve done first down run every firdt down this half.

  13. unca_chuck says:

    YES!!!! Unsportsmanlike there, 15 yards.

  14. alleykat69 says:

    Fucking Rodgers!
    Just Damm good..
    They went after him, coverage wasn’t terrible, he’s just Aaron Rodgers not Alex Smith ..sorry Twin RIP

  15. unca_chuck says:

    Whatever. Stupid shit.CJ gets a TD if he throws that earlier.

  16. alleykat69 says:

    Fucking A Beathard
    Might work as a good punt, but it’s Aaron Rodgers with a minute yikes

  17. unca_chuck says:

    fuck. How to lose a game. You let him go OB.

  18. unca_chuck says:

    They have to keep up the pressure.

  19. unca_chuck says:

    Hste to say it but we could get the ball back.

  20. unca_chuck says:

    fuck this. `This is absolutely stupid.

  21. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. Bliktz everyone Sack or TD. Who f]ucking cares?

  22. unca_chuck says:

    Another moral victory.

  23. unca_chuck says:

    This is disgusting.

  24. Maggie Horowitz says:

    Niners D just FUCKING PUTRID. Sherman got hosed on that holding penalty.

  25. unca_chuck says:

    We suck. We suck soi hard. Everyione wears this loss. Shanny called the shittiest game in the 2nd half.

  26. Winder says:

    Fuck

  27. alleykat69 says:

    Rogers just carved the secondary up, fucking ridiculous loss in a game they should of won!!!

  28. rtfirefly says:

    Our best game of the year and we lose lol.

  29. unca_chuck says:

    I offically hate this whole team. Fuck this. This in one of the worst losses in their history,

    Shanny has a lot to answer for. His play calling was terrible. CJ made the obligatory mistakes to bloew it, and we gave the ball back to Rodgers 5 times by playing it safe.

  30. rtfirefly says:

    Rodgers touched our CB Mabin. Again and again…

  31. unca_chuck says:

    Thsat penalty was dumb by Sherman. Worst possible time, as usual.

  32. alleykat69 says:

    Especially after Buckner made the sack!
    I’m still pissed and want to know why Shanny didn’t push them back and declined that fucking holding call! Somebody better call him on that in the press conference..

  33. unca_chuck says:

    What a pisser. I hated the play calling once we got the FG. No downfield shots. All it was was run 5 yard pass incomplete fail.

  34. unca_chuck says:

    Well, except for the wounded duck CJ threw. If Cj throws that earlier and farther downfield, Goodwin blows by the defender. CJ has to learn that you either overthrow it or hit it. The pick was unnecessary.

  35. unca_chuck says:

    I guess I couldn’t have called it any better but that was tough to swallow. Either we played way over our heads, or Green Bay is a shitty team. I think Green Bay is a shitty team. They had no business winning that game.

    I just think we played weird down the stretch. Deep on the goal line everyone knew we were gonna run on 1st down. -1. That spot is where you play action for some yards. As it was we got 7 on 3rd and 8. Because that is how you defend 3rd and 8. 1st and 10 though, you get that play and you have a couple downs to get 2.

    The 3rd and 3 we go deep? Granted, I do sort of like the idea of going for the kill, but that was a late shitty pass by the Beater. IF he throws it earlier and deeper where Goodwin is the only guy to catch it, fine. It worked. But the better play is to get the 1st down and kick the FG. And, you know, win the game.

    Ahhh, whatever. We aren’t going to the playoffs anyway, but it still sticks in my craw that we blew the game. Very reminiscent of that Minnesota game years ago when Brett Favre throws up a prayer that the WR makes the catch of his life. And we lose.
