Well, that, along with all the rest of the spectacle, was underwhelming at best, the worst Super Bowl of the Super Bowl era in my thoughts to say the least, was that. On paper, the Rams did little to nothing. 9 punts? 260 yards of offense? They did more by half time in most games. 3 points? Aggravating to me at least was the totally conservative play calling by McVay and company. Every first down saw a run play. I think they had 6 first downs heading into that 4th quarter. Again, that’s usually one DRIVE let alone 3 quarters of play. To combat this, they kept doing the same thing. It wasn’t until the FG drive in the 3rd quarter that they threw on 1st down. No quick passes that would have slowed NE’s suddenly stout pass rush. But the Pats played aggresive on defense, and the Rams were never able to counter.
NE wasn’t much better what with Brady throwing crap around most of the day including a 1st quarter pick, and a ton of late passes and a whopping 71.4 rating. They ran very well late though and ended up with and a grand total of 1254 on the ground.
The Rams defense bent all day, but by the end of the 3rd quarter it was still 3-3. Zzzzzzzzz. Brady had led a few promising drives, but the Rams were able to keep them at bay with the help of a missed FG and a rattled Brady. But if you punt the ball to Brady 9 fucking times, eventually he’ll do something right, and that was pretty much it as the Pats scored a TD late and Goff threw a stupid pick on 2nd down trying to lead the comeback.
Insult to injury was the missed FG at the end to at least avoid being tied with the most inept offense in the Super Bowl era
What’s the definition of insanity Chuck?
The results were pure Vegas.
The Goodell NFL.
Next comes the Vegas Raiders.
We should, at least, get a reach-around from these Billionaires’ Bimbos.
Wes Welker coming aboard, to Coach WRs, is actually something to take notice of perhaps.
Trent Taylor should benefit.
Along with a potential Draftee or 2.
Yeah, we could use all the help we can get and he certainly knows the slot position.
I’ll make sure the only receivers that pornhub QB can throw his balls to are his girlfriend.
The one thing that could be possibly be more boring than this Super Bowl is watching Chuck salsa dance at his favorite cantina in Puerto Rico. YAWN
Is this Snowflake blog still even awake? Get rid of libtard Chuck and get a real righteous, God-fearing man like Trump to take over this blog. You left wing imbeciles are as dull as a doorknob
Oh sandy. Such a sad life.
You’re a left wing loon and drunk again. You’ll have a hangover for two weeks
This blog is a graveyard. Just clicking on the Niners Snorever link puts me to sleep. Yawwwwwwwn.
Don’t fret it will pick up soon as something actually happens.
Thx winder. God knws i ain’t here for the trolls
Looks like Antonio Brown may really be out and could be had for something far less than a #2, I would go for it.
Now I understand why this blog has been so quiet lately and Chuck went on a supposed trip to the Bahamas or whatever. You guys were all at my EPIC rally in El Paso along with the rest of the country and you’ve joined No Fear in your idolizing of me. This is TREMENDOUS.
Great rally, Mr. President! I was able to grab some paper towels on the way to Puerto Rico and threw them at the little people while I was sipping margaritas.
Goddamn, Chuck, come back home soon and do something about this troll who comes up with all of these different acts under different names. I’m not me, I assure you. Trust me on that. Really.
We’ll get ‘em next year, guys. Good luck outing that ridiculous troll that is most definitely not me. Go Warriors
It’s not me, either. Heh heh heh.
It’s Spitblood talking to himself. Or it’s me. Or Skeebers. Or Bullit. Unsolved mysteries comes to you live from this otherwise lackluster blog. Stay tuned!
It’s not me either. Or is it? Is it Skeebers? Nah, it’s Spitty. Or Bullit. Fuck, maybe it’s the resurrection of Nipper. Unsolved Mysteries on an otherwise lackluster blog. Stay tuned!
You are a failure of a troll and I started it all when Chuck introduced me to the Splash as the OG she-male troll of the century. It is I who is the troll of all trolls. Giggle.
Like a room full of fun-house mirrors over here huh?
Or a D-I-D Convention gathering…Schizophrenics to one side, everyone else, just try to figure it out.
My Name Is….
Lol, I doubt anyone cares. nothing of importance going on anyway. Maybe it’s time for some music videos. Happy Valentines Day
I left my heart in SF Winder…
Hoping Santa Clara revives my appreciation, for our winning ways of 9ers football, before I’m too fukn old to appreciate the good old days 😀
NJ- Maybe it’s just blind optimism but I think we will see some of the fruits of our labor this coming year. If not then it’s back to the drawing board.
Ever the optimistic approach Winder.
I may vent, and waiver with sarcasm, on occassion but….we’re nothing but hangers on without our ties to what used to be.
It’s all about our history. Damn proud of our legacy under Eddie and Bill.
Who are they?
Eddie Munster and Bill Gates silly.
You were thinking of Eddie Van Halen and Bill Cosby weren’t you?
NJ- I fell in love with this team way before either Bill or Eddy showed up. But you are right about the history. Before commercialism the Niners were a bunch of hard-nosed football players that played the game the way it was supposed to be played. Once they got in your blood that was all she wrote.
around the 18 minute mark shows a pretty common mud game of kezar. Mud and seagulls.
Yeah those were the days. The field resembled a quagmire. The bathrooms were worse!
Shit, my son is stoked he got to see games at the Stick. Not that I blame him seeing how things are going at the strip mall stadium.
I know I for one miss the Stick. It may have been a bit run down, but it was a real football stadium for the fans, not a sanitized version of a football stadium for the business set.
Yup. I loved the pullout side. On a sunny day, nothing beat it. Sat through a lot of rainy games in those seats though.
What is aggravating is you look at the new stadiums around the league and they are majestic awesome looking designs that integrate well with their surroundings.
Ours looks like a 4th grade erector set project stuck in a n empty parking lot.
Not to mention the antiseptic opulence of Corporate sponsorship.
The game is about PSLs and ad revenue.
Avg Joe go home.
About ready to pack in my fandom.
Funny you should say NJ, had to pay this seasons tickets today, rip off.
NJ- the money involved with the NFL is totally obscene, it’s pretty obvious the more penalties called the more advertising gets shown. Not only does it wreck a game but it makes it unwatchable at times. Anyway I can’t really bitch because the only thing I spend with the NFL is my time.
12th- I guess they want their money in by the end of Feb. it sounds like. Still I would have a hard time tuning in season tix if I had them already. There is still nothing better than being there on gameday.
LA gets to the SB in year 1?
Pats win again?
Think Officiating is impartial?
It looks a bit too phony to me.
Year 1 of what? This was their 3rd season in LA, or Oxnard, or Carson, or wherever the hell they play down there.
The stick was great for football, baseball not so much.
Froze my ass off many a time at the Stick, Winder, loved every minute. Never saw a baseball game there though and was glad to see the diamond leave for PacBell park I think it was first called. Did see a baseball game there though, a great venue for it.
If Willie Mays had played in just about any other ballpark he would the home run leader today.
I am going to build a WALL between Great America and Levi’s Stadium and make Niner fans pay for it.
Build yourself a clue, skippy.
Winder, that video is great. Love seeing Brodie in his prime. Too bad he played on so many lousy teams through the 60s. Crazy is how far back he dropped in the original version of the shotgun.
Football season at the Stick was usually much nicer weather. At least for the first half of the season.
Baseball was invariably cold, day or night, sunny or cloudy. McCovey might have had 600 himself but for hitting into the wind coming off the mudflats before they enclosed it.
What about that one player like Khalil that’ll magically make us a million times better? Wasn’t that supposed to be Jimmy G? How’d that work out for ya? HYUK
I’ve been talking about the pass rush for 4 years now, wetbrain. Why don;t you fry up some plastic fish?
Lol, that was in response to your last post chuck
Yeah, some of those drop backs were at least 12-15 yards I always did remember him for his bombs.
Thanks for the video Winder. I did not realize how good JD Smith was for us. Watching Lenny Moore for the Colts was awesome, even if he was for the other team. Reminded me of watching Roger Craig!
It just reminds me of what real football looks like.
Any footage of Big Daddy Lipscomb is special. dude was a beast. Early Charlie Krueger is a treat as well.
Yeah, lots of good players involved in that, Green Bay, Baltimore and Chicago greats
You guys have been TREMENDOUSLY busy dwelling in the past while your team flounders in the present in the South Bay. NOT GOOD
It’s not dwelling Donnie just a little bit of history
might as well throw another one out there
I didn’t know Wayne Walker kicked field goals
Yup. Some teams still didn’t have dedicated kickers in their lineups.
I know Walker was a linebacker for most of his career and I guess he did both
Kilmer was down!
Yeah, it looked like quite a few knees were down before the ball crossed the line
A lot of these guys had day jobs and worked the off-season because the pay wasn’t very good. They loved the game.
Yeah, I vaguely remember Leo Nomellini was a wrestler in the offseason.
New thread is up . . .
