Goings On . . .

RIP Bart Starr


It ain’t much, but the 49ers signed CB Dontae Johnson, waived LB Pita Taumoepenu and released OL Anthony Davis. Davis of c0urse has bailed, unbailed, and reunbailed these past few years.

Johnson was decent enough at times, Pita was a PITA, and what can you say about A Davis? Release him and sign him to a minimum deal, and then toss him to the curb. Or trade him to some other sucker

Other than that, not much to report on.

Go Warriors ! ! !

    Glad the Niners let Davis go right away. They also gave Pita enough chances that he must not be a very good player, for their scheme anyway. Johnson is more than likely camp fodder at this point. So far the team has stayed out of the news which is a good thing. We are at the 100 day point for the season to start and it seems like everything has taken forever. Guess I need to get more of a life.

      Don’t sweat it, Winder. The Niners are way more talented than they were three years ago. There is good reason to want to see if the promise turns into results. Hang tough! 102 days till Opening Day

      • Winder says:

        Lol, Yeah I am gonna be just fine. The difference from this year to last is this year I actually expect for us to do good things. Can’t wait.

  2. unca_chuck says:

    Hey, with the Giants sucking hard, there’s little else. The Dubs will Dub, so there’s that, but it will be over soon enough. So we have a looong summer of the Bochy death watch.

    Johnson likely sticks. Mainly for familiarity’s sake.

    I don’t think he’s terrible. It’s just that all these guys were forced to cover for 6+ seconds. An impossibility in today’s NFL what with all the holding and illegal contact calls.

    • Winder says:

      It’s sad to watch what’s going on with the Gmen. It’s time for a complete overhaul and Bochy is on his final grandstand so maybe at this point it just as well to let him finish out the year. He’s a HOFer.

    From MM today:
    practice note: Rookie punter Mitch Wishnowsky went 6-for-6 on plus-50 punts inside the 10-yard line, including two that were downed inside the 3-yard line.

    Your 4th round pick in action

  4. rtfirefly says:

    From Barrows:
    Worst TD celebration of the day: Jordan Matthews, who after catching a pass in the end zone from Jimmy Garoppolo, went to throw the ball against the fence and missed, throwing it instead into the players parking lot where it hit a car. Catcalls from defensive players ensued.

  5. rtfirefly says:

    General O impression from today?
    Great – Deebo, Coleman
    Good – Pettis who dropped a TD to drop from great
    Fine – Jimmy G., no problems
    Not good – Mullens, whose passes were defensed and nearly picked off far too often

  6. unca_chuck says:

    At this point I just don’t want injuries.

  7. rtfirefly says:

    To boldly steal from the WZ:
    Wish’s hangtime today was 4.8 seconds.
    For comparison, an average hangtime of 4.55 usually puts you top 3 in the NFL. For a single punt, the longest each season tends to be around 5.5.

  8. unca_chuck says:

    What is the WZ?

  9. unca_chuck says:

    Huh. Just wondering when Skeebers blog gets an endorsement from Fox News.

    The whole poor starving artist as right wing sycophant is pretty funny.

  10. unca_chuck says:

    Dray for the win!

  11. Winder says:

    I didn’t like that the Warriors had so much time off. They just might get beat this time.

  12. unca_chuck says:

    Naah.I don;t think so. The Warriors played pretty flat. They may lose both these games and still come out on top. The pressure will be on of they come home down 2 though.

    All they really need to do is take one of these first 2 and they’ll be in good shape.

  13. rtfirefly says:

    So much for my long, detailed, brilliant take on the Raptors series. My rural internet connection seems to have eaten it. Not WP this time. Ach so. Little bad weather and the internet goes to hell. Sometimes. Sometimes not.

    • unca_chuck says:

      Sorry, man. Took a look for it, but nothing in the filters. Except our local troll boy.

      • rtfirefly says:

        Nah, it was my crappy internet in this little town during a T-storm. Nothing new. One of the prices to pay for walking distance to all the stores and the post office, library, and not a single traffic light in town. Oh the misery

  14. rtfirefly says:

  15. unca_chuck says:

    Barring injuries of course. Damn. Half the team went down tonight.

    • rtfirefly says:

      KD will be back and the train will roll along at home.

      • rtfirefly says:

        If KD leaves we’ll be able to resign Klay AND get Kawhi, who is also a FA. How’s that?

      • unca_chuck says:

        Crazy thought. i like the way you think.

        What’s funny though is KD catches a world of shit for signing with the Warriors, but Kawhi get zero shit for tanking an entire season for the Spurs.

  16. Winder says:

    The Giants picked an outfielder at #10 Hunter Bishop from AZ state. He plays center. I sure hope he pans out.

  17. unca_chuck says:

    6′ 5″ – 210. Going the Aaron Judge route.

  18. unca_chuck says:

    This is Farhan’s first draft, so there’s a lot riding on this. We won’t know of course for a couple-three years.

  19. alleykat69 says:

    Bishop can play all 3 outfield positions but maybe a better fit on a corner LF are RF. One thing the kid can motor for a 6’5 210, they say he runs a 6.50 60 yard dash.

  20. Winder says:

    I like the looks of both our 1st day picks. We need so much help just about everywhere that some potential new blood is kinda exciting.

  21. unca_chuck says:

    Both are lefties. That usually doesn’t bode well for hitters in our park. Unless you are Barry.

    They must have moving the fences in on their to-do list.
