Sue me, I’m early with this. Got a busy day at work (yes I have a real job), and I’m watching the World Series, and I’ll probably be on BART when the game starts, so here we go. Taking a look at the handy dandy results on the side of this place, and I see that we haven’t beat the Cards since 2014. The dregs of the the Harbaugh era. The garbage game at the end of that woebegone season. IOW, a long fucking time.
But that was then, this is now. Since no one was too keen on my idea of resting some of the starters, I guess we play and hope we come out of this game healthy. As healthy as one can be after playing 2 games in 5 days. Richard Sherman was very outspoken about these Thursday night games, he blew out his Achilles on a Thursday night, and all the players certainly feel it, but here we are. Playing our 2nd division game. One of 3 in a row. AZ, Sea, AZ GOt to love the schedulers for this anomaly. At least we get Seattle at home.
Thing is, the Cards have the same schedule as the Niners. In other words, fodder. Yet they are 3-4-1. They beat the Giants, the Falcons, and the Bengals. Seattle, the Ravens, the Saints, and the Panthers have beaten them. They are always tough at their house, and we seem to be cursed against them, but shit, we got this.
Just to follow up from the last thread Chuck…Comp Picks –
Ahhhh, so you can get a 3rd round comp pick. Thanks. I thought 4th was the highest.
I truly hope none of our players get hurt since we are still pretty banged up. At the moment I think Colman is our healthy RB. But I REALLY want us to take it to AZ, it has been toooo looong.
Couldn’t believe it was 2014 since we did.
Defense wins Championships. [EOM]
The Starters want to play to keep the win streak going. The other thing is they are going to have 10 days to rest
Yeah I know. I wouldn’t mind seeing a couple guys sit, though. Just a thought. Plus I think our backups can beat their asses anyway.
A rare talent indeed.
Take no Division opponents lightly Chuck
All about the W.
Good test for our D to see a mobile QB.
Russ and Lamar are coming.
This has trap written all over it.
Murray is not an easy task
This will be a good test of holding our gaps. What has killed us before is the ability of RW to get free from the initial rush to throw downfield, or get free on a scramble. LB speed is much different this year, and we have a MUCH improved pass rush.
Murray is a good warmup for RW.
I’d be happy with 2-1 out of these next 3 games.
i think by next year we will have the toughest division in football. We might have it already I’m not sure. For some reason AZ has had our # for years now. i don’t Kingsburry(sp) is the coach that Arians is but i wouldn’t take him lightly. We need to crush our division. Like Saleh says ‘all gas no brakes for 60 fucking minutes’.
Yeah but theses Thursday games scare the shit out of me. We are creeping back to getting healthy. It needs to stay that way
I don’t even watch Thursday games unless the Niners play. But then i don’t watch much football besides the Niners anymore. To much bullshit with the refs and commercials.
That’s how I am with baseball. The games are like 3-4 hours now. Football games are now faster.
yeah, I don’t watch any baseball unless it’s a Giants game.
My great and unmatched SPACE FORCE must have launched Chuck’s brain into orbit the other day. Not only did he think Thursday Night Football was on Tuesday night (NOT GOOD) but he suggested resting all of the starters in favor of the DO NOTHING third stringers. What he forgot is that playoff seeding is in place and the Green Bay (a town which overwhelmingly voted for me, they love me there, I’m the second coming of Vince Lombardi, believe me) Packers are only one game behind SF for the top seed and Aaron Rodgers (who I have met, he’s a great man, a TREMENDOUS man, a fine quarterback, that I can tell you) and his team still has a head to head game vs. the Niners next month. VERY DISAPPOINTED in Chuck’s ideas to forfeit this game against a division rival. He used to be a savvy 49er fan! SAD!!!
Thanks for stopping by Mr. Trump. Call me when you Nancy’s foot out of your ass.
Because the next step is George Washington is gonna shove his dick in your mouth.
hope we can calm it down some that was way to fast
Damn a divot held up the game? Fucking pussys
“Plus, I think our backups can beat their asses anyway”
unca_chuck 10:51 am today
Awwww. So cute. Go suck a shotgun, fucknut. You used to be funny, Dennis
Now you are just pathetic sad piece of shit.
Very frustrating start, horse collar penalty, face mask penalty,Kittle banged up? 7-0 and playing like shit early..
Well theirs a start huge sack, stops the Cards on that drive..
Looks like they have geared up for the Niner run, time to put Jimmy G to the test, he needs to be tested early not later when they might have to pass
And they need to be passes of 10 yards or greater, 3rd and 8 and pass a 7 yard pass ain’t going to cut it
Kittle unstoppable on that TD pass&run!!
He plays old school “Get the F**k out of my way”
Good to see the Niners can rely on Jimmy G, 5 for 5 on that drive,
What a fucking break that Kingsbury called a TO before they were stopped short of the goalie.Then they get the 6 on the next play to end the half!
Should of had 6 earlier if it wasn’t for hands of stone Deebo dropping a wide open TD!!
Kliff Klavin special there!! 21-7!!
i wasn’t sure about the Sanders trade but I am now he was worth it. He’s going up against one of the better DB’s and still getting things done.
Well, Sanders is better than what they currently have on the field. That ain’t much, but, Jesus Deebo, you HAVE to hang on to that pass. The slant was a thing oif beauty. I wish we would run that play more. At least we have a guy that can get open on those.
Our defense just got punked.
Great pass to Sanders there. Need to get points. Whatever they are.
When teams go no huddle and march down the field, I always wonder they don’t take a timeout and get different personell out there.
Yeah!!!!!!!!! Fuckin’ A!!!!
Fantastic read by Jimmy G on that one.
Saleh got lucky there. I HATE that defense when they drop guys 20 yards off the line. It doesn’t work.
Just can’t seem to put this team away!!
They need to score. TD here, none of this conservative run shit
That screen woulda got 20. We run on 1st down 99% of the time.
They sure have to cleanup these drops by the receivers and RB! Jimmy stats would be off the charts without them..
I sure would like to see us go play action more on 1st down.
D needs to come up with something here. We were too far off the line that last drive.
Someone on defense needs to put this game away.
Well that wasn’t it.
See, this is why screens suck when you need to throw the ball down the field, now they cannot be conservative, go get the win!!!
We are going to lose, quit fucking running the ball
Of course the receiver has to catch the ball
Good pass good catch
They still need to score here
We just need to run the clock out. they’d better not change this call.
Gutsy 3rd down run. Told my son they were gonna run. And they got it. Juuuuust enough.
Now go play action deep. Shanny needs to dial more that runs up the gut.
If they don’t get a 1st down here there will be too much time on the clock, AZ last TB took less than 2 mins
Yikes false start
8 and 0 a thing of beauty
Smart play by Jimmy and Dwelley to finish it.
They dont always have to look good but when you end up 8-0 that’s all that matters!
Really a tremendous game for Jimmy G , showed a lot of pocket presence and delivered in the clutch!!!
Yeah, this one is on Jimmy for making the plays he needed to. Even with the drops that could have killed a couple drives. Hell of a game. Kyler Murray is gonna be a pain in the ass for a while.
Jimmy played his best game as a Niner tonight. Those timing passes were a thing of beauty. And the one to Deebo was perfect even though it was dropped. Jimmy showed some real touch.
Sanders is a godsend. He’s done so much in these 2 games.
At least we finally beat those assholes. Saleh better hit the film room. We let a mediocre rb kill us tonight. They are gonna have to put someone to shadow murray in two weeks the guy is dangerous he is just too fast.
The only stat I don’t like is AZ scored 11 points in the 4th Q, 49ers scored 0, not good!
Next 3 games ar home, let’s hope home field advantage is just that!!
Saleh had better figure out how to handle a scrambling QB, A Rodgers will be a handful
Not to mention Russell Wilson. Yeah, we seemed soft on defense tonight. AZ did a lot of no-huddle that stopped our subbing out and we got burnt for 2 long TD drives. Then the big play late. That being said, we didn’t stop the run well at all either. Strange game.
NFC West looking like the real deal.
Murray showed that he is as slippery as a fish and just as fast. A lot of those plays looked a lot like the college game. He showed he is most dangerous on his play action roll outs. Defenses should figure it out sooner or later like they did with Kap. He ran through our defense without being touched a few times.
We may have lost Kwon for a significant amount of time with a chest injury. That was a big reason AZ moved the ball so well on that 88 yard TD they had. Hopefully it’s not a season ender
I got that little tidbit from ninersnation.
Didn’t hear that.
i guess we will find out sometime today the extent of his injury. Fingers crossed.
He said he has a pretty good range of motion so hopefully he ain’t out for the year.
49ers LB Kwon Alexander will undergo an MRI on his injured chest Friday.
Alexander suffered his chest injury in Thursday night’s win at Arizona. Per beat reporter Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, the 49ers have “some of level of optimism” as to Alexander’s status. Maiocco also noted that Alexander’s “range of motion” didn’t appear to be impeded by his injury. The ex-Buccaneer has impressed in his debut season as a Niner, totaling 34 tackles over 357 defensive snaps while garnering PFF’s top coverage grade among 4-3 outside linebackers.
New thread is up.
