While the team is hanging in Youngstown, we are trying to figure out if we are real or lucky. Can we run? Is our O line crap? Can Jimmy G avoid the pick 6? Can we stop Ginger and his 400+ yards last week?

Sure, it’s all possible, it’s just that we have to stop making stupid mistakes. Stop with the TD killing penalties, stop dropping interceptions, stop dropping the linebackers 15 yards on 3rd and 17, you know, GET SMART.

    If you’ve got 3.5 hours to kill, here’s the entire Monday Night Football game, with commercials, on 11/29/1976 of the Niners beating the Minnesota Vikings,

  2. unca_chuck says:

    Scott Bull in for Jim Plunkett. Gene Washington was still playing.

  3. unca_chuck says:

    CHeck out 56:45. PI was a problem back then.

  4. alleykat69 says:

    I know it was only one game against the lowly Bucs but the 49ers are #1 in defense with 27.00 pts in fantasy league with their 3 picks 2 for TD’s returns a fumble recovery and 3 sacks! Already surpassed last year total of picks which was a ridiculous 2…

  5. Winder says:

    We were just talking about Mike-Meyer not to long ago. I can’t believe I forgot about him but he missed a chip shot in that game. We had a good team but with Bull we were not going anywhere.

    • unca_chuck says:

      That team that year was damn good till everyone, including Plunkett, got hurt. Elam went down in this game. Even still, Mike-Mayer lost 3 games missing FGs.

      Terrible year, but the defense at the start of the season was awesome.

  6. unca_chuck says:

    One for NJ.

    If you watch ESPN, they do q segment called Bad Beats. Regarding meaningless scores, or improbable finishes that fuck up the betting og a game. Like the Redskins/Eagles game, where the Eagles were 9.5 favorites. If they had covered, Vegas would have lost a ton of money, but a late TD meant Washington beat the spread.

    To quote:

    Apparently sportsbooks were pleased with the outcome. From the Las Vegas Review-Journal:

    It was a painful ending for Eagles bettors but a sweet finish for Las Vegas sportsbooks, who enjoyed a multimillion-dollar swing in their favor.

    “Eagles cover would have been a disaster. Every parlay would’ve cashed,” Caesars Entertainment director of trading Jeff Davis said. “That Redskins touchdown was roughly a seven-figure swing.”

    MGM Resorts reported about a $500,000 swing on the play. South Point, Station Casinos and CG Technology also needed Washington.

    “That was huge,” Sunset Station sportsbook director Chuck Esposito said. “The three biggest morning games were the Redskins, Dolphins and Jaguars, and it was apparent pretty early that neither the Dolphins or Jaguars would get there.”

  7. unca_chuck says:

    That last paragraph though explains the vagaries of it all.

    The flip side of that is, why was the Dolphins/Ravens game so heavily bet? KC I can see, Wash/Philly? Sure. But Dolphins/Ravens? Everyone knows Miami is tanking this season. Who would bet them to cover?

  8. unca_chuck says:

    This is fucking ridiculous. Horrible call by the refs in the Carolina game. Newton clearly gets the 1st down on the 4th down run, and the ref makes a shitty call, and replay doesn’t reverse it despite clear evidence. The spot was a yard and a half short of where he came down with the ball. They don’t even change that.

  9. unca_chuck says:

    NFL Network. Fig Newton looks terrible. As does (gimme a) Winston.

    6-3 and a 1/2 hour lightning delay. I must be a glutton for punishment.

  10. unca_chuck says:

    Watching Newton get pounded and Carolina do nothing, maybe our O line isn’t as bad as I thought.

  11. unca_chuck says:

    Too funny. Replay is just about agreeing with the call on the field.

  12. unca_chuck says:

    The officiating is insanely bad in this game.

  13. rtfirefly says:

    Our win over Arians and the Bucs doesn’t look so cheap now.

  14. rtfirefly says:

    Call me late to the party, but Sam Darnold has mono and is quarantined in his hotel room???? LOL

    • rtfirefly says:

      and Bellicheat just made his first ever trade with the Jets this week, Demaryus Thomas. Hmmm… I can’t stop laughing. Mono????

  15. unca_chuck says:

    Right? I thought only 15 year old girls got mono. He’s out for like 5 weeks.

  16. unca_chuck says:

    They should send in that game film last night for the at least 8 bad calls they made. Absolutely horrible officiating. It flat amazes me that they can make a call, and despite visual evidence, plain ignore it. What’s the point of replay?

    • Winder says:

      They need to revamp the whole process but I doubt the advertisers would go for it. I believe that’s why they throw so many flags. It probably pays for the refs pension fund.

  17. rtfirefly says:

    The Red Rocket chalked up 418 yds. passing in Seattle, but the Bengals only managed 3 second half points. Seattle’s D Line had a career day pressuring Dalton. Now Cincy’s starting LT is out for the game. Oh, and Nick Bosa and Ford are both expected to play.

  18. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, they aren’t gonna run against us so I see the same kind of game from the Dalton gang.

    We win by pressuring him and not making mistakes on offense.

    I’d like to say we win this going away, but I just don’t know with this team. The D held up their end of the bargain last week. The O not so much. We should have had 2 more TDs than we did, but TB left a couple out there a well.

    • rtfirefly says:

      I don’t know anything about the Bengals except that they have a very good D Line and they have AJ Green, who is out Sunday. 270000 years with Marvin Lewis is over. I’m not sure the Bengals know who the Bengals are yet.

  19. unca_chuck says:

    Good news is tht Bosa practiced today and will likely go Sunday.

    We need to get after Dalton early and often..

  24. unca_chuck says:

    Hitting the beer a little early? Geraldo Rivera?

  25. unca_chuck says:

    Blowing calls left and right does nothing for the ratings. As has been proven over and over, it is driving people AWAY from the game.

    Vegas involvement I buy much more than a ratings grab. People have show to watch ANYTHING football related. So getting viewers isn’t the issue. Tilting the over/under or spread? Sure.

    I loved that Kittle got a Joker Tat prior to his wedding.
    Guessing we’re all close in age, familiar with Batman?
    Was the Joker really a bad guy or, just too smart for his own good?
    I’m leaning towards Kittle and the Joker.

    Sid Caesar was a pretty good joker.

    • rtfirefly says:

      Sid Caesar was freakin’ hilarious, and could play second fiddle to Ethel Merman, Jonathan Winters, Milton Berle, and yeah those other two guys.

      That movie had the three kings of ’50s television: Sid Caesar, Milton Berle, and Phil Silvers. They owned the #1 watched TV shows in America for the full decade.

      • unca_chuck says:

        Caesar Romero I meant. Doh!

        Mad Mad Mad World was awesome. A little before my time, but they showed it somewhere when I was about 12.

        Don’t forget Mickey Rooney. Buddy Hackett was funny as fuck in that movie.

        One of Spencer Tracey’s last movies iirc.

      • rtfirefly says:

        Mickey Rooney was a midget wannabe tough guy punk, and the other guy was a dive vulgar nightclub comic who gained fame with 101 trombones and his part in this movie and did absolutely nothing with it. The other men were kings. Ethel Merman was a queen of the stage. Jonathan Winters is a personal favorite.

  30. rtfirefly says:

    Jonathan Winters with Robin Williams on Carson:

  31. unca_chuck says:

    Don’t hold back now.

  32. alleykat69 says:

    Johnathan Winters was such a great comedian, his facial expressions always cracked me up!
    I would of loved to have had him as my Grandfather, the guy was hilarious 😆

  33. Berger says:

    NJ is providing serious entertainment! You gotta love that guy!

  34. alleykat69 says:

    Actually Spencer Tracy’s last film was “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” A great movie with Sidney Poitier and very controversial at the time with a interracial relationship.Audrey Hepburn was fantastic as his wife(off screen as well) helping him as well as her( with alcohol) to understand what the 60’s and bigotry was all about..

  35. alleykat69 says:

    49ers waive TE Kaden Smith to make room for RB Jeff Wilson. Note to 49ers stop drafting Stanford players they SUCK unless named Christian McCafferty

  36. unca_chuck says:

    Huh. Glad we kept Wilson. Just hope he don;t fumble.
