Big Day Nick now becomes Nick at Night as the 49ers continue their sojourn through the drags of the NFL with their 3rd game in a row against a one-win opponent. Their stellar record is 1-1. They lost to the hapless Cardinals, who were thusly dispatched by the KC Chiefs, and the happlesser Raiders were thoroughly pounded by Philip Rivers and the LA Clippers.
Tonight of course is our 2nd national game in a row, against the one-win New York football Giants, and our 2nd game with the well-endowed one, Nick Mullens. The Giants seem to be following our footsteps of playing well enough to be in games, but not good enough to win them. Eli Manning is dodging more bullets than the Beater was, and Saquon Barkley is running against stacked lines and 9 in the box.
The Giants? Man, what a shit show. They are 22nd in yardage given up, and 22nd in points allowed. 25th against the run, 23rd against the pass. Their offense is as equally bad. 21st in yards per game, 27th in points per game, 9th in passing yards (!), and 31st in rushing. Even with Saquon.
Not that we are any great shakes in any of these categories,
- D: 12th yds given up; 26th in points given up; 19th passing,; 13th rushing
- O: 20th yards; 18th points; 23rd passing, 4th rushing
But that is why they play the game. Even if all it does is solidify someone’s abjectly shitty season. My only solace is to see if BDN shrivels up under the scrutiny. I think he keeps it going, and the defense feasts on another shitty team.
