You thought the Bay of Pigs was bad?!? Well, just wait for the Stupor Bowl! The 1-7 49ers battle the 1-6 soon-to-be-the-I-210 Raiders in Stupor Bowl II! Last week was pretty stupor-inducing as the 49ers yet again found a great way to lose. Give up 15 points in the 4th quarter to the worst offense in the league, and then hike the ball over the Beater’s head to seal the deal.
This Thursday Night extravaganza should be a frightful event as the 1-9 Beathard takes on the suddenly free-falling Raiders. Wh of course are in the process of dismantling a decent team at the cost of stoking Jon Gruden’s ego, I suppose. Gone was their best player, Khalil Mack, and more recently Amari Cooper, their best offensive weapon, for 1st round picks. So they have at least something to look forward to.
We on the other hand are down to (apparently) our 3rd string QB in Nick Mullens. He of the 0 experience and 0 passes in a meaningful game. Should be a punt fest. Although the Raiders did put up points against Indy. We on the other hand, play like we are just learning the game and don’t quite get the nuances of how to pressure, how to defend, and how to tackle.
Bet the under.
