Monday Night Mayhem

Crazy day in the NFL, settled with a lovely Dallas loss to go withthe Rams loss, and AZ to boot. Really though, who looks great in the NFC? N’Awlins scores 9 and gives up 26 against 2-7 Atlanta? Packers struggle at home vs the 5-4 Panthers? Rams score 0 offensive TDs vs Pittsburgh and loses?

I’m liking this season more and more. Especially if we can remove the hold that Seattle has on us. A win tomorrow would put us 2.5 games up on Seattle and 4 games over the Rams. A loss? Well, not the end of the world, but it would drag us closer to the fair-to-middling rest of the NFL. Dallas and Philly lead the NFC East at 5-4. The Packers, Vikes, and Saints all look fairly flawed, as they all struggled this week.

Seattle, for all their recent success, are looking as good as the rest of the NFL, but not quite as solid as us on both sides of the ball. Our defense has been lights-out with our newly discovered pass rush. But, the X factor by far is Russell Wilson. He’s putting together an MVP season as he wills this fairly middling Seahawk team to victories week after week. I guarantee just about any other QB has this team at 4-5, not 7-2. He’s uncanny accurate on the run, he eludes the pass rush better than most, and he makes big plays all day.

Coverage is hard to come by 10 seconds after the snap, and Russell extends plays like that all the time. Chris Carson is nothing to sneeze at either. At 5’11” and 225, he’s no wall flower. He averages 4.4 yards a run, and I suspect they will try like hell to run on us. If they can go play-action,they have a huge advantage. Lockett and Metcalf are a solid pair of wideouts as well. So, we NEED to stop their run game early.

Gonna be a hard-fought game, and as Monday night games go, this is a big one. One that may even live up to the hype. Biggest game at Levi’s? Sure.

I think we run on them pretty hard, and win the battle of the trenches. Some play action big plays as well. We’ve got both our tackles back, and we have our Juicebox back as well. I think we outlast and outscore Seattle 34 – 27.

    That’s the achilles heel with the Wide-9 Chuck.
    Susceptibility to interior running attacks.Hence my admiration for the Fat Men in the Middle who eat OLmen and keep their LBs clean.
    Remove Kwon, add Russell/Carson and….it’s not an easy forecast.
    Home crowd, returning pieces and MNF hype is going to help.
    Ball control. Keep everything in front. Nothing over the top.

      I like Greenlaw, I’m just afraid he’ll be schemed out of position. For whatever reason, we’ve been getting run on early. Thing is, we overcommit to the run, and you know Pete will take advantage.

      Gonna be a fun one tonight.

  2. Winder says:

    We just have to control the ball and keep it out of Wilson’s hands. Jooz coming back will be a big help. Lots of screens, nickel and dime our way through the field. We have to keep our D fresh so Wilson’s on his heels all night. Not sure how we do it but I do think we win this one.

  3. unca_chuck says:

    Looks like Kittle is out. E Sanders is worth every penny right now. All Dwelley has to do is catch the ball and we’ll be fine. Don’t try too hard and fumble. I’ve liked his game since we got him. And yeah, run the damn ball. The best way to stop Russell is keep him on the sidelines.

  4. alleykat69 says:

    Looks like they might activate both Goodwin& Celek for the game.4WR’s set and some 3 TE sets as well depending on game situations..

  5. Monday Night Boredom says:

    You call this mayhem? Maybe at the retirement home where Chuck is nursing Coors all day, but compared to the superior blog that Skeebers runs this place is a ghost town. Damn, I almost fell asleep typing this. Five comments all day? ZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

  6. alleykat69 says:

    Supremacy in the West on the line tonight!
    Time for 49ers to finally open up a can of “WHOOP ASS “ on the Seahawks and blow their division wide open! Still will be a battle with Amazing QB Russell Wilson,WR’s Lockett,Metcalf,and now Gordon, with a stud Carson at RB, but their in are house on MNF and we have a few extra days of rest to boot,so Ipredict a 31-23 Niner victory!!

  7. Irish Kevin says:

    It is early, but they don’t look very good.

  8. Irish Kevin says:

    That was awesome

  9. alleykat69 says:

    Nice slant run by Deebo for 30 yards!
    Love to see this guy breakout with a huge game..

  10. Irish Kevin says:

    The WR’s are stepping up for Kittle

  11. alleykat69 says:

    Great play call! Bourne wide open for 6!!
    The start they needed to put extra pressure on Seattle…

  12. alleykat69 says:

    Damm that front 4 just blew up Seattle’s line on the sack of Wilson!!

  13. Irish Kevin says:

    No huddle…no problem, a sack

  14. Irish Kevin says:


  15. Irish Kevin says:

    Back in the game on 1 play

  16. alleykat69 says:

    Sure didn’t need that strip sack easy TD momentum changer before half..

  17. Jimmy G’s Footballzz says:


  18. alleykat69 says:

    What a play by Tartt to strip Metcalf at the goal line and keep the lead..

  19. NFL Offciatingg says:

    Where’s that guy who said Jerry Jones paid off the refs last night? We’re making it up to you tonight in Santa Clara!

  20. Grumpy Guy says:

    Failure to capitalize on turnovers and opportunities could kill us tonight. We’ve controlled much of the game but have only a field goal lead to show for it.

  21. Irish Kevin says:

    WTF, why challenge the spot, to me you are saying to your offense you can’t get 1 yard

  22. Grumpy Guy says:

    Won the challenge but it doesn’t mean shit if you don’t get points.

  23. Irish Kevin says:

    Well that sucks

  24. Wussell Rilson says:


  25. Irish Kevin says:

    They need a play to slow the D down

  26. Irish Kevin says:

    Jimmy G has lost it! Is not handling the pressure at all!

  27. alleykat69 says:

    This is turning into a fucking pile of dog shit!!

  28. Grumpy Guy says:

    Our starting tackles are not able to block Clowney, and our backup WRs can’t catch the ball. Barring a major turnaround, we’re losing this one.

  29. Irish Kevin says:

    Jimmy G is getting schooled by R Wilson

  30. alleykat69 says:

    Freakin Seattle is 26-15 lifetime against the 49ers, they obviously have our number which pisses me off bigtime!! Their my most hated team! But I truly respect Russell Wilson he is a special player and a MVP caliber player this year..

  31. Grumpy Guy says:

    Jimmy puts the ball right in Deebo’s hands. And he can’t catch it. We’re snakebit tonight.

  32. alleykat69 says:

    Without Sanders the rest of the receivers are running scared 😱 Bourne&Samuel missing catchable balls, one for a pick, one a big gainer..

  33. alleykat69 says:

    Back in it after that strip sack TD Buckner ran in!
    21-18 and plenty of time..

  34. Irish Kevin says:

    About time Deebo makes a play!!!

  35. Grumpy Guy says:

    Bourne with another drop that probably cost us a chance to take the lead. Almost an INT.

  36. Irish Kevin says:

    WR’s should be embarrassed with there missed catches, Jimmy has hit their hands like he should. J Rice is cringing!

  37. Grumpy Guy says:

    Going to be a gut check ending. We may need another big defensive play to pull this out.

  38. alleykat69 says:

    Good job by the rook FG kicker in a first and only start banging in 2!!
    Bourne needs a new identity after this game!
    2 big drops!!

  39. Irish Kevin says:

    Losing by 3 will just plain suck

  40. Irish Kevin says:

    Jimmy need to run the ball

  41. alleykat69 says:

    Clutch Kick!!How about that Rookie!!!!
    Chase McGlauin your the man!!

  42. alleykat69 says:

    Yeah Baby what a play by Greenlaw to save their bacon 🥓

  43. alleykat69 says:

    Jesus that was not the time to turn into Steve Miss a-Mile 😱

  44. Grumpy Guy says:

    The snap looked hinky to me on the FG. Might cost us the game.

  45. Grumpy Guy says:

    Poor clock management is going to cost us the game. Should have ran it out and taken the tie.

  46. Irish Kevin says:

    The Niners need WR’s, Jimmy struggled at times but the WR dripped way to many passes!!!

  47. Grumpy Guy says:

    Samuel caught 8 of 11 targeted to him. Bourne only 4 of 8. Pettis and Goodwin BOTH 0 for 3. Ballgame.

  48. alleykat69 says:

    Grumpy, the snap was ok even got the laces turned the moment just got to big for the kid and he just shanked it.. Give him credit though for sending the game into OT atleast and he did nail 3 FG’s just needed the 4th one to have had a memorable night..

  49. rtfirefly says:

    OK I can post again. I wasn’t going to jinx our streak.

    No more politics or history or whatever the frell I keep going on about.

    We’re still 8-1

  50. Grumpy Guy says:

    It looked to me like the side was off to the side, into Wishnowsky, just enough to slow the placedown and mess with the timing. But it’s hard to tell from a quick look.

  51. alleykat69 says:

    Jimmy G looked far like an elite QB like Wilson!
    Yeah their were some dropped balls and then their was throws to high, not in front of a receiver, are Twice that should of been intercepted, just an overall not ready for postseason performance…

  52. Grumpy Guy says:

    KS should have run the clock out and not given Wilson one last chance. A tie would have left us two games up, now it’s only one. Deep in your own end, it’s better to take the tie there than give the ball up after three incompletions.

  53. Grumpy Guy says:

    The defense played well enough to win. The offense just did not get it done. Can’t keep giving the ball to a guy like Wilson and expect to win.

    • Irish Kevin says:

      Who was suppose to be the SPY to make sure Wilson didn’t run. That last 21 yard run should not have happened

  54. Winder says:

    Looks like we are not quite ready for prime time. A definite reality check.

  55. unca_chuck says:

    As bad as we played at times, and despite everything, ic that fucking FG and we win. Its the curse of Robbie Gould.
