There’s Winning Ugly . . .

. . . there’s winning fugly . . . and then there was this. The good news is 49ers are 3-0. The bad news? Well, we have to lead the league in turnovers after yesterday’s train wreck of an opening day. The 49ers tried to destroy the beautiful day that was unfolding as the game started. I will say this, making the call to sit on the shady side of the stadium was a good one. 85 outside the stadium is 95-100 inside. At least in the sun.

No need to rehash the ugliness, but there’s a lot to be mindful of. The defense played out of its mind. Granted, this was Mason Rudolph’s first start, but Rudolph and the Red-Assed Steelers gave Seattle a much harder time than we did.   Much like Cincinnati before them. A bit of a theme, as the Saints, without Drew Brees, beat the Seahawks handily yesterday. And without the turnovers of course, we win this game 38-17.

Ahkello Witherspoon is getting an MRI today, but if you believe him, it isn’t serious. One can only hope, as Jason Verrett looked like Jason Garrett out there. 2 plays, 75 yards and a TD.

    Glad you got to see the game. I am gonna make one someday. i have been so used to disappointment with this team for so long that i didn’t think i would let a game affect me like yesterdays. I’m glad I quit drinking or else i would have made a fool of myself. Still i found myself yelling at my cats and leaving the room so often that I lost count. Anyway, if we can somehow manage our mistakes I think we will give teams all they can handle.

    Yeah, it was pretty nuts from the 3rd play on. The thing was we WERE moving the ball up and down the field, so the thought was just get the lead. All the game really showed is that we are fairly thin at safety. Moore took a horrible route to Smith-Shuster to allow the first TD, and there was no deep safety near Verrett when he was cooked for lunch.

    Witherspoon hopefully comes out of this alright, and he was back on the field after 15 minutes in the locker room.

    Witherspoon is gonna be out at least a month with a sprained foot.

    Ouch. That sucks.

  5. Witheredspooned says:

    I’m going to be out for at least two months with a torn ButtCL.

    Mosely wasn’t terrible. Not bad as Verrett anyway.

  7. rtfirefly says:

    The offense has had only 2 3-and-outs (both in the last game), second in the league to KC, who has 1.

    The defense has matched last year’s total of 7 forced turnovers.

    The Bosa Express is 6th in the league in QB pressures.

  8. Winder says:

    We haven’t had good luck after the bye for quite awhile. Hopefully, the team will stay focused and not let shit go to their heads.

    this is something I feel much better about with Shananahan than with Nolan or Singlebraincell. they shit the bed EVERY meaningful game. No mistakes, and we crush the Browns.
