Game Day! Let’s Put the Aints in Saints

Here we are in the thick of things. Funny how expectations go from “Gee, I hope we get a wildcard spot” to “Shit, we just lost the 1 seed!!” It is a three team race for the #1 seed, and we play 2 of them in our last 4. Win tomorrow and it won’t really solve any issues, but it would put pressure on Seattle to keep up. Lose tomorrow, and we are the 5 seed playing in either Dallas or Philly, unless Seattle really blows it.

The Rams? I have no faith in them to do anything but lay down like the dogs they are.

The Saints? Well, if this season has proven anything it’s that mobile QBs give us problems. And Drew Brees is anything but mobile. He ain’t even from Alabama. Dee Ford got an extra week off of rest, and Nick Bosa is chomping at the bit to hit a QB, so I feel like we can shut their offense down. I didn’t see any of these wipeouts coming, but I don’t think this is one of those.

But I don’t think we sweat this one too much. 31-17. Niners.  Unless Jimmy G plays give-away. If anything worries me about this team, it is Jimmy’s turnover issues.

    At this point it’s all about prove it or lose it. We have to play good enough football to win out. If we don’t we shouldn’t be there in the first place. Jimmy has to clean up his act some with the turnovers because good teams will beat us because of them. I love it, haven’t had this much fun for years. I think we kick the Saints ass today.

  2. 12th man says:

    Staley is out today and I think that’s a good thing. Let him return against the Falcons where he can knock the rust off and get ready for the playoffs at home against a less threatening opponent and where he can hear the snapcount.
    Niners should win this one.

  3. 12th man says:

    Conflicting reporting, Niners reporting he is active after all.
    I preferred the first report I read.

  4. Irish Kevin says:

    Saints at home and Drew Breese, don’t count them out just yet. This should be like the Green Bay game. We will see in20 mins kickoff

  5. Winder says:

    Looks like NO came to play

  6. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, at least we hit him once. We need to keep that up all day. Wear his ass out.

    Again, though, this is about Jimmy G and the mistakes. We cannot afford any against the Saints. They WILL capitalize on turnovers.

  7. unca_chuck says:

    Nice read by Jimmy G there, the play was to Kittle. Wow!! Love the slant!!

  8. unca_chuck says:

    BNo on the wildcat

  9. Irish Kevin says:

    I have to say after the Seattle game the receivers hav e really stepped up! The Seattle game they were dropping passes left and right.

  10. unca_chuck says:

    Jimmy G looked awesome on that drive. The Bill Walsh playbook of using the pass to set up the run.

  11. Irish Kevin says:

    So far the D is struggling.

  12. unca_chuck says:

    Shit. This looks like a shootout. Need to get in there faster.

  13. Grumpy Guy says:

    Gonna be a tough day. We miss Tartt.

  14. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. Really dontt like the Kittle biplane sweep.

  15. unca_chuck says:

    Stasley getting beat and penalized.

  16. Winder says:

    well, we are getting our asses handed to us

  17. unca_chuck says:

    Wow!!!!!!! Sanders is worth every pick we gave up. Outstanding!!!!!

  18. Irish Kevin says:

    Go ahead load the box to stop the run

  19. unca_chuck says:

    Didn’t see the D getting torched like this. Ford is already out.

  20. alleykat69 says:

    Shit defense is sucking right now!!

  21. alleykat69 says:

    And now Witherspoon is hurt..

  22. unca_chuck says:

    D has been on the field lot already.

  23. Irish Kevin says:

    5 plays to score their first TD, and 1 play to score the second and. 3 and out

  24. Grumpy Guy says:

    Too many injuries on defense, all year long. It’s taken it’s toll. Saleh had better have some halftime weapons-grade magic or we’re going to lose this one.

  25. alleykat69 says:

    What did they do chill on the beach and bang babes all week in Florida? Their definitely getting handled by Saints offense…

  26. unca_chuck says:

    Shit. Gert a fucking stop, defense!! Unreal so far.

  27. Grumpy Guy says:

    Holy Shit. How often do you see a Flea Flicker actually work?

  28. unca_chuck says:

    That well? Under pressure like that? Unreal.

  29. unca_chuck says:

    D is getting no rest. We’ve run 13 plays.

  30. Grumpy Guy says:

    Shit I wish we had Alexander, Ford, and Tartt right now. The defense is just a little overmatched. We need someone to make a big play.

  31. unca_chuck says:

    Finally!!! A big play by the D

  32. Grumpy Guy says:

    Nick Bosa is our best draft pick in 25 years. Fight me.

  33. Winder says:

    this fucking game is not what I thought it would be. totally crazy.

  34. Grumpy Guy says:

    Ugly holding penalty. Even Stevie Wonder would have seen that. How the Hell does 32 think he’s going to get away with that? Dumb.

  35. unca_chuck says:

    25 years? Let’s see. That goes back to 1997? I’m going with Kentwan Balmer.

    • Grumpy Guy says:


      • Grumpy Guy says:

        I was thinking since BY. Now I’d entertain the argument that Willis is right there with him. But even Willis did not have this much immediate impact. Bosa is superman in red and gold. Without him, we’d be 7-5 instead of 10-2.

  36. alleykat69 says:

    What a play by Bosa being held as well!
    Saints getting to cute using Hill, you know he’s gonna run so stuff the box! Rather he takes more snaps then Brees any day..

  37. unca_chuck says:

    What the fuck??????

  38. Irish Kevin says:

    Now that Jimmy has torched them for TD’s the run game has opened up

  39. unca_chuck says:

    Need to burn clock for a change. Get the TD and get the ball in the 3rd.

  40. Grumpy Guy says:

    Goddamn but Shanahan can come up with plays.

  41. unca_chuck says:

    Scary as fuck. That was almost blown up.

  42. Grumpy Guy says:

    Goddamnit Celek.

  43. Grumpy Guy says:


  44. unca_chuck says:

    BOOOOOM!!! Moisty for the lead!!!!

  45. unca_chuck says:

    That extra point looms . . .

  46. Grumpy Guy says:

    So how are we enjoying our defensive battle? LOL

  47. Grumpy Guy says:

    Still got to stop Brees now.

  48. unca_chuck says:

    Shit. We scored too fast.

  49. unca_chuck says:

    Maybe not!! Thanks, Sean!!!!!

  50. Grumpy Guy says:

    Great play by Buckner.

  51. alleykat69 says:

    Mostert is a savage! Hits the holes, no hesitation!
    Dude already has 22 pts in fantasy today before the half..

  52. Grumpy Guy says:

    To have Brees get 4 TDs in 4 drives – and we still end the half with a one point lead? I’ll take that.

  53. Winder says:

    Yeah, and he’s our#3 back

  54. Irish Kevin says:

    Chuck they blew your 34-17 score right out of the water! Ha ha

  55. Grumpy Guy says:

    Oh Shit. I was just thinking second half turnovers would decide this.

  56. Grumpy Guy says:

    Need to answer with a touchdown here. Get the offense back into full rhythm. Don’t want another game where Brees gets the ball last and beats us at the gun like last week.

  57. Irish Kevin says:

    Only 3 points off a pick and on the Niners 40 yard line, I will take that

  58. Grumpy Guy says:

    Shit. That was awful and Richburg goes down.

  59. unca_chuck says:

    Fuck. Richburg is done.

  60. alleykat69 says:

    Aggressive all day then they hand off a stacked box and get stuffed on that 3rd down run, not thrilled with that call!!

  61. Grumpy Guy says:

    Horrible looking injury. Probably done for the year.

  62. Grumpy Guy says:

    There’s OUR turnover!

  63. alleykat69 says:

    Yeah Baby Fumble recovery for Buckner!!!

  64. unca_chuck says:

    Ohb hell yeah!!!!

  65. Grumpy Guy says:

    First and goal. Punch this Fucker in!

  66. Grumpy Guy says:


  67. Grumpy Guy says:

    Now we need a defensive stop, and get a cushion.

    This won’t be over till the clock runs out on Brees. Or on us.

  68. alleykat69 says:

    I liked what the play by play guys said when Sean Payton said juicy is by far the best fullback in the game..Isn’t he the only one?

  69. unca_chuck says:

    We should have vchasllenged OPI

  70. alleykat69 says:

    Wow Mike Nolan now just a LB coach.The mighty has fallen…

  71. unca_chuck says:

    Too many penalties.

  72. alleykat69 says:

    Shit the 49ers are going to need more scores, cause I have a feeling Saints are going 4 down mode every series.

  73. Grumpy Guy says:

    Bosa again…

  74. alleykat69 says:

    Bosa fantastic instincts sniffing out that swing play!

  75. Grumpy Guy says:

    Big opportunity. Need to take advantage.

  76. Grumpy Guy says:

    We could really use some of that KS play calling magic here on 2nd and 11.

  77. Grumpy Guy says:

    Third and long.

  78. Grumpy Guy says:

    Middle of our line not as strong with Richburg out.

  79. Grumpy Guy says:

    Deebo for the BIG first down…

  80. Grumpy Guy says:

    Payton is such a little cunt.

  81. alleykat69 says:

    That was HUGE to get 6 and now 2 possession game!

  82. Grumpy Guy says:

    Nine point lead. Now the defense needs to get it done.

  83. Irish Kevin says:

    Kyle needs to not go into the run only mode, when they get the ball back, especially if NO scores here

  84. Grumpy Guy says:

    Don’t give up any cheap big plays. Make them work for it, wait for them to make an error.

  85. Grumpy Guy says:

    That’s nothing Sherman didn’t do for years in Seattle – but the refs are no longer letting ti go.

  86. Grumpy Guy says:

    And there’s the big play we didn’t want to give them. FUCK!

  87. Grumpy Guy says:

    Nothing comes easy this year.

  88. Grumpy Guy says:

    We need a touchdown drive now. No field goals unless there’s less than 30 seconds left.

  89. Irish Kevin says:

    You can’t go 3 and out here

  90. Irish Kevin says:

    A TD puts it away
