Game VII – I Got Nuthin’

In what should be a laugher for the Rams, I don’t hold out much hope for this one. Our banged up and hopeless secondary against this high-powered aerial attack? Our anemic pass rush vs the Rams stout O line? If Goff challenged Sherman all game, we might stay close, but they aren’t that foolish.

Our only chance, much like the first half of last week’s game, is to keep their offense off the field. We kept it close, had the lead, and actually had a chance to  . . . well you know.  So the chances of winning are small but I’ll  be watching. And hoping.

This game ends the real tough part of our schedule that I thought we’d struggle with, even with Jimmy G. Without him? well. 1-6 will be here. and who know about the rest? Our best game statistically was our worst loss. We play the tougher teams of the league, on the road, very well. We could have beat Minn. We could have beat KC, and damn fucking well should have beat GB, all on the road. We barely hung on to beat Detroit as Jimmy G did his best Beater impersonation and threw a game changing pick that was mercifully called back. The AZ game? CJ’s worst.

Tomorrow never knows,

    When’s the bye week? Atleast you don’t lose when you don’t play!

  2. NJ49er says:

    Bring Jimsonweed and Sage. Ohlone Elders and their Medicine Man too.
    No joke.
    I’m convinced we’re Cursed at Gohblome Stadium.
    Could be our SB. Defeat the hated and undefeated Division rival in a close one?
    Big single-finger salute to SNF on the day of DC’s Catch Tribute that won’t air on National TV.
    Hey NBC…Flex Dis.

    I’m sober.

    • unca_chuck says:

      There’s your problem, NJ!

      • NJ49er says:

        Wouldn’t it be a giant High-Five to DC tho?
        Why eff’n not?

      • NJ49er says:

        Obvious personnel advantages aside for LA, Shanny and McVay are very familiar with each other.
        Maybe a ball control game and few breaks in our direction could ignite the long lost rivalry again?
        Gurley is enough of a headache. Keeping him in check is my prayer in this one.
        Along with the Ohlone Medicine Man 😀

  3. unca_chuck says:

    We got 4 more games before the bye.

    Speaking of Bye, say bye to Tom Savage. He was waived already for taxi squad DB Tyvis Powell.

    Apparently he was in a couple games for us last year.

  4. rtfirefly says:

    Trubs looks like a real, bona fide, NFL QB, playing great against an excellent Pats D. I admit it; I was dead wrong on him.

  5. rtfirefly says:

    Sherman and Ward both out. We’re going to get fried, so much for concentrating on stopping the run…

  6. alleykat69 says:

    Ward’s useless anyway!
    Can’t help the club from the tub, and he’s always in one ☝️
    Cut their losses with this punk and move on..

  7. rtfirefly says:

    99 1/2 yard drive led by Baker Mayfield ties up the Bucs in the closing minutes. Oh well, we’ve got CJ.

  8. alleykat69 says:

    Cleveland Browns to play in their 4th OVERTIME game of the year,unreal!!!

  9. unca_chuck says:

    Bears come up a yard short on a 54 yard bomb to tie the game at the end of regulation.

  10. Maggie Horowitz says:

    Jeez. Brieda again. WTF

  11. unca_chuck says:

    Brieda out after one play.

  12. unca_chuck says:

    And there you go. Turnover. -12 in +/-. that gets you 1-6.

  13. Winder says:

    Here we fucking go.

  14. unca_chuck says:

    Good news is we re stopping the run. Bad news is they will start passing. Didn’t know Sherman was out.

  15. unca_chuck says:

    We can’t rush 4.

  16. unca_chuck says:

    Huh. Coverage was soiid there.

  17. Winder says:

    I guess we can consider that a victory for the turnover.

  18. unca_chuck says:

    Mostert looks pretty good these last couple games.

  19. unca_chuck says:

    We need quicker passes on 3rd down.

  20. Maggie Horowitz says:

    Juczcheck fucked up on that blitz

  21. Winder says:

    We just keep shooting ourselves in the foot

  22. alleykat69 says:

    Yeah when he’s not fumbling Mosert looks good..

  23. unca_chuck says:

    Yup. We were in FG range. I din’t think the Beater can read fast enough for a quick slant. We just don’t do thta with him.

  24. Winder says:

    Jesus we can’t get a break

  25. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. Nice hands Jaquizz

  26. alleykat69 says:

    Their’s the turnover needed!
    Tartt had a pick 6
    Except without the pick geeezzz

  27. alleykat69 says:

    Turnover #16 tops in Football 🏈

  28. Winder says:

    This is really becoming commonplace.

  29. Irish Kevin says:

    Turn overs will never give your team a chance.

  30. Maggie Horowitz says:

    For fucks sakes

  31. Irish Kevin says:

    -11 that is almost 2 give away a game, terrible

  32. Maggie Horowitz says:

    What’s the spread in this one?

  33. unca_chuck says:

    I think that was before the game. We are -13 now.

  34. Irish Kevin says:

    Kyle had better have some passing plays and a way to protect the QB so he can make the throws, otherwise I see 0 points for the Niners!

  35. Winder says:

    down by 10 CJ better get rid of the ball fast otherwise he’s gonna be eating lots of turf

  36. unca_chuck says:

    Rams -9.5 O/U 52.

  37. unca_chuck says:

    We can’t block 4. God we suck.

  38. Winder says:

    fuck me

  39. unca_chuck says:

    We got lucky there. No TD.

  40. Irish Kevin says:

    Pass plays called…n protection. And a blocked punt, can it get any worse…

  41. unca_chuck says:

    Course we have to give them the ball.

  42. unca_chuck says:

    I thought 44-17. We may not get 7.They might get 50.

  43. Winder says:

    Glad I’m not 25 anymore otherwise I just might throw something at the tv.

  44. theroooster says:

    Two teams on opposite ends of the spectrum. Fun to watch.

  45. unca_chuck says:

    Great to see us sucking in every aspect of the game.

  46. Irish Kevin says:

    Zero pass protection

  47. Irish Kevin says:

    CJ needs to do that more often

  48. Irish Kevin says:

    And another turn over

  49. alleykat69 says:

    I’m ready for Mullen’s anyone else?

  50. Irish Kevin says:

    When it rains it pours

  51. Maggie Horowitz says:

    Beathard: You suck monkey nuts.

  52. unca_chuck says:

    That was incomplete. Jesus.

    I hate to say it but we are back to drafting a quarterback in the first round. Jimmy G is a 5the year guy with 8 starts.

    He may not be all that, but the Beater certainly isn’t.

  53. unca_chuck says:

    Can’t stop the run now.

  54. unca_chuck says:

    Enough time for the Rams to get 14 more points.

  55. unca_chuck says:

    Gee, if you block you can get some plays.

  56. sandy32koufax says:

    Santa Clara couldn’t beat San Juannabe St this year. Damn sad on Clark Day too. Painful game for you guys but I’m lovin it! BTW, I don’t expect a shutout…yes I do 🙂

  57. unca_chuck says:

    This clock management is pissing me off.

    • sandy32koufax says:

      Execution. There’s an idea. Sorry Chuck but you guys suck swampass this season.

      • unca_chuck says:

        What have you won? One and done in the playoffs last year ring a bell?


      • unca_chuck says:

        One ring? How cute.

      • sandy32koufax says:

        Last I checked, the Rams have 3 rings but you resting on past laurels is cute. How are those new things: stadium, GM, coach, QB, DB, etc, ad infinitum, ad nauseaum working out so far? Like I said, sorry you suck so bad this year but you do. Gotta own it instead of deflecting. Hey, they scored 7 so far though!

      • unca_chuck says:

        I’m living in the past and you cite 1945 and 1951? Now that’s sweet, homey. Your daddy wan’t even cum stain in ’51.

        What have you won lately, speaking of now? 1999? Hahahahahahahahahah!

      • sandy32koufax says:

        Gee Chuck, the whiners won their last title when, 23 yrs ago? Ya killin me, Whitey! Nice interception! Oh wait, he didn’t catch it. Darn.

      • unca_chuck says:

        5 rings to 1 skippy. Don;t worry, you guys will fade in the playoffs per usual. Just like the dodgers, regular season wonders who flame out in the playoffs.

      • sandy32koufax says:

        Chuck, an NFL title is. Period. 5-3 and we’re loaded, y’all just suck w/o any good prospects for getting better in the foreseeable future. I think I’ll go say “HEY!” to the flap. Good luck today, Pard!

  58. Maggie Horowitz says:

    Play calling in red zone sucks, what else is new.

  59. unca_chuck says:

    3 turnovers and we are only down 2 scores. Could be a lot worse.

    • theroooster says:

      Lol, don’t worry, it will get worse

      • unca_chuck says:

        Well, you must be proud trolling like this. How many rings you got, Capon?

      • unca_chuck says:

        It’ll get better when the Dodgers choke another world series away.

      • sandy32koufax says:

        Damn! Johnny-Come-Lately to the WS circle of champs has a real bad vibe going on today 😦 Los Doyers look like the underdogs they were in ’81 & ’88. Like the jints were in every series they played in from 2010 on for that matter. Smile Chuck, it’s a beautiful day and you just got a roster spot for a competent DB/CB!

      • unca_chuck says:

        Yeah, those Dodgers are so cool for not winning the series in 30 years. You are quite the fair weather fan aren’t you?

      • sandy32koufax says:

        I’ve been an unswerving Dodger/Ram fan since 1963. Nah, The Bandwagon is truly a Bay Area thing. Last night IO went out and jints fans were wearing BoSox caps and acting like it’s a done deal. FWIW, IDK who writes your stuff these days but I’d fire him, he’s really bad.

      • unca_chuck says:

        Sorry Sandy, you are an idiot. Johnny come lately? 3 rings in 5 years? Yeah it’s so much cooler that the Dodgers won 3 in 23 years! And their last one was 30 years ago!! Yeah don’t look in the past ! Hahahahah!

        What a fucking maroon.

      • sandy32koufax says:

        Oh, I just remembered, 30 yrs IS a damn long time so let me ask you to do some simple math: 2010-1954=? Ya, a whole lotta more than 30. 4 takeaways so far? Uh-oh…long day ahead for you 9er fans.

      • sandy32koufax says:

        Johnny-Come-Lately as in the jints have been in SF since 1958 and it took them 52 yrs to win a title but LA did it after yr 1. You are really off your feed this season, old man. It gets better, try a memory stimulant!

      • unca_chuck says:

        Oh, but don;t live in the past!!

        You are too stupid to breathe. I’d much rather enjoy the titles we’ve won instead of point to 1959. I’ve been alive and aware of every 49er playoff and Super Bowl win except for 1958, and every SF GIants playoff and World series win except for 1962.

        So folks listen to Sandyasshole, don;t live in the past but refer to all thhose world series wins before your grandfather was born. Go suck an exhaust pipe. Oh yeah, you already do that every miniute of every day.

      • sandy32koufax says:

        For a guy who doesn’t live in the past, you sure jumped on that “BUT WE’RE BETTER CUZZA THE PAST!” bs right quick, Chuck. I’m tellin ya, try some Echinacea or start jogging or something. Your mind is shot.

  60. unca_chuck says:

    Then again we do this.

  61. Winder says:

    We need a fucking turnover.

  62. Winder says:

    The ball sure isn’t bouncing our way. Bad luck seems to smother us. Also I have never seen a team fall over themselves so often. It kind of makes you wonder about the field.

  63. unca_chuck says:

    The field? The other teams aren’t doing that.

  64. Winder says:

    unfucking believable

  65. unca_chuck says:

    Kittle with another drop that leads to a pick.

  66. unca_chuck says:

    We should be down 35 wit all these turnovers.

  67. Maggie Horowitz says:

    Just a fucking embarrassment. This team is pure dogshit.

  68. theroooster says:

    A perfect Sunday!

  69. Irish Kevin says:

    Well all you haters out here, let me put this in perspective, there in not a single pro team, baseball, football basketball, that can win with 2nd and 3rd stringers. This is what you are watching right now. The only thing that is being said here that is true…the Niners have no pass rush. The front line D is awful. That is the one area that needs to be addressed in the off season

    • Maggie Horowitz says:

      Maybe the secondary needs addressing as well, a durable running back, a decent backup QB, receiver depth, it’s more than the D line.

    • sandy32koufax says:

      IK, the 9ers suck up and down the roster on both sides of the ball. Broken-down Porn QB is junk like the rest of this “team” is. Well, Sherm still rocks when he plays so there is that loool!

      • Irish Kevin says:

        I am surprised Chuck let a troll post here, maybe to lighten the mood. Look the Rams were crap in the 80’s and they moved to St Louis, they won a couple of SB and then start sucking again so they move back to LA. Sandy when they start sucking again what city will they be moving to?? The Niners, may have had to move out of SF to get a stadium built but they did not move across the country.

      • sandy32koufax says:

        Kev’s another feeble-minded gnome? The Rams weren’t crap in the 80’s at all, the whiners were better. Period. The Rams have only won 1 SB and they aren’t going anywhere out of LA for the next 30 yrs minimum. Cracks me up how you dolts think the whiners are still SF, they live 45 miles south now. In Santa Clara, home of the Mission City Gridiron Club (who can beat the 9ers today!).

      • Irish Kevin says:

        Rams were in St. Louis for 21 years so maybe you are right 30 years in LA and then move again. NFC version of the Raiders

    • unca_chuck says:

      “Hahah! I;m a front-running pussy bragging about a regular season win because i have no life but to troll another team’s blog!

      Mom, where’s my grilled cheese sammich!!!”

    • unca_chuck says:

      It’s even sadder you lack the class of your namesake. He’d bitch slap you for being a douche nozzle.

    • sandy32koufax says:

      HOO HAH! Chuck throwing the lamesults now! Bud, your team is shit, the jints are shit, and neither is looking to get any better, without major changes, any time soon. Amy Ng is the way but Sabes won’t get her cuz PROFITS matter! This collection of rutabagas in Santa Clara won’t even if Lombardi, Noll & Walsh come down and bless them. I can’t blame your angst, sweetie, so I’ll leave you with this thought, Don’t you recognize “theroooster?” He’s a throwback to The Splash! You really have lost a few steps, Viejo.

      • unca_chuck says:

        You are a front running candy-ass fan, Nothing more. Keep stomping your little little feet and acting like a whiny 12 year old chick. You got nothing.

        Did I act like a 5 year old when your Rams sucked for 20 years? No. Because I could care less about them. Or when your Dodgers kept blowing all their western division crowns? Well, yeah. Because they choke, but you swallow. Lap it up, skippy.

  70. Maggie Horowitz says:

    * Beathard is tough as nails, but has NO pocket awareness and is loose with the ball
    * the defense has injuries, but worse, has no pass rush or coverage skills
    * the tackling is the worst I’ve seen in my life
    * they have 17 turnover and 4 takeaways
    * their high draft picks are of no impact….Lynch hasn’t proven astute yet
    * the play calling seems to expose them to turnovers
    * the stands are empty
    * the veteran leaders are either hurt (Sherman) , grossly overpaid and ineffective ( Garçon) or aging and ineffective ( Staley)

    What’s good? Maybe Robbie Gould? Breida is good, too.

    I thought it was a one year quick turnaround…but we’ve stepped so far backwards that we’re at least two more seasons from consistently respectable.

  71. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, we are down a ton of players, but the blocking is shit. We still need a lot of elp along the line and the defensive backfield.

  72. Winder says:

    I don’t think anyone here hates the Niners except the Ram fan and that’s expected since the last good thing to come out of LA was the Doors. It is just hard to watch sloppy play by the team. We have been exposed just about every game on both sides of the ball. It is just gonna take a little longer that I had hoped.

  73. Irish Kevin says:

    Throwing behind the goal line…yep the Niners know how to pass the ball. The reason I did not bring up the O line before is that the Niners are in love with the run game ever since Singletary and Gore the O line has been great at the run game, where as the Pass prtection has been crap ever since Alex Smith’s days, The Niners are nev r going to address this problem as long as a running back rushes for 100 yards a game or a combo of running backs rush for 100+ yards a game.

  74. Winder says:

    garbage time

  75. theroooster says:

    Bluejeans stadium damned near empty with a quarter to go, lol.

  76. unca_chuck says:

    Rememnber when LA didn’t have a team for 25 years?

    Pretty soon you’ll be going to Carson to watch games!!!!!!! Hahahahhahahah! Better show up armed to the teeth. It’ll make the Coliseum look like Huntington Beach.

    Hey! Progress! we didn’t turn it over!

  77. sandy32koufax says:

    SF doesn’t have a team either, Chuck. BTW, that stadium is a beaut and Carson isn’t a former junkyard like the lot Levi sits on.

    I guess not coughing it up is cause celebre’!

    Hasta bebe, may the sports Gods restore your mind.

    • unca_chuck says:

      Yeah, it’s a current junk yard. Great prices on crack.

      • DieHardNinerFaithfulSince2011 says:

        Does Carson have the exquisite wi-fi that our shiny new stadium in Mountain View has available for hard core Niner fans to completely ignore the game in favor of social media? I don’t think so!

  78. DieHardNinerFaithfulSince2011 says:

    Go Niners! Epic comeback on the way!

  79. DieHardNinerFaithfulSince2011 says:

    I think our best move is to go get Tyrod Taylor from the Browns and if he has an epic five or six game win streak for us then let’s pay him hundreds of millions of dollars! We’ll be right back in the playoff hunt and the red and gold will be unstoppable! Watch out, league, here we come!

  80. sandy32koufax says:

    Close game, gurus. See ya when the RayDuhs stomp your throats too!

  81. DieHardNinerFaithfulSince2011 says:

    Why so quiet here? Don’t be sad, guys! We might win four games this year and when we sign Jamis Winston next season we might go 8-8! Go Niners!

  82. NJ49er says:

    Bring on the Shaman Jed.
    This Curse ain’t ending any time soon from the looks of it.

    No need to eff up a perfectly good path to a top 5 Pick at this point either.
    Moral victories are fine with me. I’d rather have choice over Chucky anyway.

  83. NJ49er says:

    We get to see the fruits of suctitude up close and personal with the Rams.
    Years of top tier Draftees have paid dividends.
    I’ve always loved what Wade Phillips has done on Defense and, here’s what happens when an experienced DC gets his hands on raw talent.
    Hats off to LA, I’m looking forward to a renewed hatred within the Division again.
    You don’t get better until you beat the guys that own you.
    Get off the deck and keep swinging. Ain’t no other way to do it.

    • NJ49er says:

      By comparison, I’m leaning heavily in the direction of Saleh being less than ready for Primetime.
      Coaching is starting to look overmatched when it matters.

  84. rtfirefly says:

    Amari Cooper to the Cowpukes for a 1st. Just wait, it’ll be Carr next. The Raiders are going to suck for quite a while, but oh boy are their drafts going to be fun.

  85. rtfirefly says:

    PP of AZ asked to be traded. Do it!

  86. unca_chuck says:

    He would d certainly help. The fucking Raiders are becoming the Browns. Gruden is destroying that team.

    The galling thing about Saleh is the shit-ton of plays where WRs are wide open by 10-15 yards.

    Like we blow coverages on every goddamn pass play.

    Sure, the corners are fair to middling, but they are reading the plays wrong. That’s on the coaches. I’ll say, we’ve done a little better on screens and the tackling is improving incrementally but the wholesale breakdowns in the passing game, and the usual lack of pass rush is going to continue to keep this team in the shitter.

    • rtfirefly says:

      We’re going to pay through the nose in the draft until we find two good corners to complement Sherman. PP is way beyond good; he’s elite.
      We’ll get at least one pass rusher in the 2019 draft.

  87. DieHardNinerFaithfulSince2011 says:

    The best thing about being a loyal 49er fan is that no matter how stupid and shitty our beloved team is we’ll always be able to ignore that in favor of endlessly trashing the Raiders. Hey, I know we get our asses handed to us by our real rivals in the NFC but that means nothing compared to obsessing over an AFC team we only play once every four years. Our suckitude is slightly better than Oakland’s so LOL at the Raiders. Meanwhile, I say we trade for Blake Bortles right now and we’ll find ourselves 10-6 and right back in the playoffs in no time. Mark my words! Go Niners!

  88. unca_chuck says:

    This is how you choose to waste your time?

    • alleykat69 says:

      Agree Chuck!
      Blake Bortles are you fuckin kidding me?
      CJ as we all know is 2-3 string QB, Bortles a 1st rd loser really is worse then CJ , a scary but true fact. Jaguars are all fighting among themselves now, the team is free falling, atleast the 49ers aren’t in total turmoil, give Shanny some credit for keeping the team together, with all the injuries and starting 2nd and 3 rd stringers..

      • DieHardNinerFaithfulSince2011 says:

        Agreed. I am impressed. In spite of everything, we’re sure to squeeze out three or four wins. And it’s not like we hemorrhaged hundreds of millions of dollars for an injured quarterback who won a few meaningless late season games. We’re set. Go Santa Clara team!

      • rtfirefly says:

        You got nuthin’ on Grant Cohn. He’s already calling for Kyle’s head. Forget that with a healthy Jimmy G., we’d be 3-4 or 4-3 and still in the playoff hunt.

  89. Ya, an Unbroken Porn QB is all the 0ers need to be relevant again. The DB’s would go from about 2,000 passing yds., so far, to 0 and that porous O-line would make Brady jelly. Jimmy No-Knee is a Hardcore Football GOD! Don’t get me started on Lil Shannie, he’s amazing.

  90. unca_chuck says:

    Keep braying, skippy. Sad you have resorted to this as your passion. Hey, I guess you should be thanking me for giving you a forum, as it appears no one else wants to listen.

    But, as they say, NFL (not for long).

  91. NJ49er says:

    As was the case when Goff arrived is where we are with Jimmy. Good Offensive minded Coaches McVay / Shanny from the same tree will make them better.
    Fortunately for the Rams, they’ve accumulated a cache of Drafted talent from their years of suctitude. Our turn now.
    Jimmy is on IR and, our Defensive talent isn’t working with Wade.

    Hats off to LA, looking unstoppable at mid-season doesn’t win any hardware.
    It’s all about staying healthy.
    Rams have a very real shot at home field throughout if they remain healthy so, good luck with that.
    I’m in for a Draft slot in April now. Only way to get better is with good Draft results on Rookie deals.
    No need to eff up the Draft slot now, but showing some improvement wouldn’t be out of the question 😀

  92. NJ49er says:

    Hey Sandy, Lil Shannie and McVay come from the same tree.
    Your Rams have benefit of top Draftees due to years of suctitude. Our turn now.
    I’m perfectly fine with going the same route now in SF. Sucking gets higher Draft slots.
    Wish my Defense was being Coached by Wade too. Good for you.

    Funny we didn’t hear from you during the Fischer years huh? Coaching makes a big difference sometimes. See Jim Harbaugh in our case.
    Shanny will get the Offense on par at some point. Ain’t happening this year with CJ however.
    The rivalry between us will get balanced soon enough, if our GM can hit on some Draft Picks like your Team did.
    We’ve paid our QB. You’ll benefit from the Rookie deal for awhile.
    Good luck the rest of the way.

    It’s a healthy hatred between us for me.

    • NJ49er says:

      You can thank Dan Snyder for your cache of talent to a large extent.
      RG III deal and some fortunate selections worked out well for how your roster was formed.
      We’ll right the ship eventually.
      I’m fine looking bad enough for a top 5 Pick next April.
