Well, they did it! They signed that missing piece from the soon-to-be dynastic 49ers. They signed their placekicker! Robbie (I’m good as gold, just ask me) Gould signed a 4 year, $19 million deal to remain with the 49ers. Well, it’s actually a guaranteed 2-year deal that the team can bail on.
Crazy thing is, he isn’t the highest paid kicker. That distinction belongs to the Ravens Justin Tucker. He makes a cool $5 mill a year. What seemed like a barely veiled ploy by Gould to get more money, we,, he got it. And, as long as everyone is happy, hey it’s all water under the bridge. As Winder said, it’s now one less thing to worry about. I would have preferred a draft pick or 2, but as noted, everyone’s happy.
In other important news, Jimmy G has been cleared to fully participate in training camp.
Much Ado About Nothing
Bosa and Deebo, who have the same agent, will eventually sign as well. MAAN reprise
I’m more than happy to keep Gould, he’s made 72-75 FG attempts a 49er,88% for his career, he’s money, only Tucker has a higher percentage.
Top 3 FG kickers all-time and we have one..
That is amazing. I also think that he is happy here, he just wanted a little more security.
$$$$ecurity. Yes, indeed. Like I said, if he really wanted to go back to Chicago, he could have retired. Instead he throws his tantrum and gets his way.
Oh well. He ain’t the first and he won’t be the last.
And like y’all are saying, it’s one less thing to worry about.
Yes $$$ecurity, big role for sure!
But since he’s one of the best, I’m good along with the 49ers for sure keeping him on board..
Do we really want to go out late to find a decent kicker that ends up being “Steve Miss-aMile”are Paul “Choker” Cofer??
I think we also had a FG kicker named Mike Cofer
Winder..Yeah my bad it was Mike..
Though we did have a guy with tremendous guts and glory who always played hard in RB Paul Hofer till his knees gave out..
alley- I think you had it right the first time we did have a kicker named paul cofer. To me Paul Hofer was what the 49ers are all about. One tough guy.
It is a lot of money and I think he makes more than Tevin Coleman. But if he wasn’t worth the gamble we wouldn’t have done it. Lots of players pressure clubs for more $green$ it’s just business.
You liberals have a officially lost your minds. Get off Robbie Gould’s nuts already. NOT GOOD
Don’t look now, but the Giants are only 3 games back of the 2nd wildcard, 5 games behind the 1st, with 66 games yet to play.
Paul Hofer was a stud RB in the dark days. He tore his knee up for good during the 81 Super Bowl run IIRC.
Mike Cofer was the kicker. Steve Miss-a-mile!! Was he barefoot?
I don’t remember steve miss a mile but I did find this
Mike-Meyer was the WORST. Not sure how he isn’t #1 on that list by a fucking mile.
53% is by far lower than those other guys. The Niners were decent in ’76 and he cost the Niners at three games by missing 2 FGs against the Cards and 2 against the Redskins, and 3 vs the Chargers. Two were 3 point losses and 2 were OT losses. We would have won the division in ’76 had he made those FGs.
I guess it’s about whoever decides to write a Bleacher report. I didn’t like that he added Tommy Davis. As far as I can see he should be a HOFer he was a great 49er. Our 76 defense was one of the best but by 78 we couldn’t stop anyone, Total collapse.
That guy is an idiot. Back in the 60s there were few specialty kickers. 60% got you into the pro-bowl. Tommy Davis was erratic but they all were. He was the first kicker I remember going to games. Then Gossett.
As far as that 76 defense, they were bad ass. Cleveland Elam was a monster. Tommy Hart and Cedric Hardman were unstoppable.
Gossett lived in my hometown. It was before they developed the hills where Jedi now lives, so it couldn’t have been too far way, though I don’t know where.
Steve Mike-Mayer is Steve Miss-aMile’s real name.Kicked for the 49ers for 5 years (1975-1980) fortunately not during the 49ers SB runs, lifetime FG PCT 51% which is laughable and wouldn’t get you even a tryout now days..
Like i said, Miss-a-mile blew our shot in 1976. We had an absolutely dominating defense and a solid offense with im Plunkett and Gene Washington. Devin Williams had 1,250 yards. Shit Wilber Jackson had a great year with something around 800 yards. Randy Cross was a rook that year.
Hart, Jimmy Webb, Hardman, and Elam were a fucking dominating D line. Vanderbundt and Nunley were great LBs.
Nunley of course stuck around long enough to make a Super Bowl saving goal line tackle of Charles Alexander.
Shame that team didn’t get a shot in the playoffs as their defense was one of the best. And it was the last gasp of the Morabito ownership of the team.
I totally forgot about Steve Mike-Mayer. The football Gods were not friendly to the Niners for quite some time. I guess they are a fickle bunch.
Yeah, between the meltdowns to Dallas and the team getting riddled with injuries in ’76, along with the missed FGs, it was a bleak time. The ownership was down to the wives of the sons of the original owner. They were not fully involved or up to the task of keeping the team competitive.
Funny thing is, that O line that protected Joe was drafted in the mid-late 70s. Some by Walsh and some by the previous regime.
Shit. The only guy drafted by Walsh was Fred Quillan. He got Dan Audick from the Steelers. The rest were from Lou Spadia.
Both Fanhorst(sp) and Cross saw the worst and the best from the Niners.
Ayers and Quillan as well. Audick was acquired in a trade with the Chargers or Cards. Can’t remember.
I keep forgetting about Ayers.
Looks like the Giants are having some fun. Yesterdays game was a classic. It definitely put a dagger into the Met’s hearts. I love it.
Crazy run they are on. Wonder if they change their minds about trading Bummie and Smith. They could end up being buyers. A better 2nd baseman would be nice.
Hard to get rid of Bum after yesterday. But it all depends on what we can get. It is a rare run we are having. Been a very fucking long time.
Wow. They did it again tonight. Amazing.
Sometimes you just get lucky
Not today however. barring a huge comeback.
Yeah, we got stomped pretty good. It was fun while it lasted.Nice to see some backups contributing.
With the doubleheader on Monday against the Rockies, and the extra inning madness against the Mets, the Giants played the equivalent of over nine games in the last seven days.
Now they play the Cubbies, while their wildcard rivals all play schmucks. If the magic continues, they’ll muddle through (Don’t Get Your Dauber Down!) But don’t sweat it if they lose some ground in the next few days.
Great win today though. Yaz and Dickerson have really brought power to a lifeless outfield. Great to see the rookies do well today.
Another tough gutty win! Giants are on fire.
They are really playing some good tough ball right now. I don’t think they will let Bum go and I don’t really think he wants to. I am so happy for the team right now.
This Aussie Chick Orianthi ain’t half bad….
A classic…..in HD 😀
