Domination – 49er Style

Very good to see the defense come together right as the playoffs rolled around. To a man, everyone said the bye week was crucial. One play. Gigantic implications. Dre Greenlaw would be the hero of the year for his stoning of Hollister 6″ short of the goal line, and he will never buy a drink in the Bay Area forever.

Meanwhile, the return of Dee Ford and Kwon Alexander saw the resurgence of the vaunted pass rush that stymied so many teams early this season. Ford’s stat line was 1 sack and 1 TFL, but his presence allowed Bosa to run free for 6 tackles and 2 sacks. Everyone on the D line, including recent acquisition Tony Zettel, got sack. Kwon Alexander didn’t even get on the stat line, but just having his speed out there caused Minnesota problems.

The name of the ore-game story was stopping Dalvin Cook to slow the play-action passing game. Well, 9 carries for 18 yards is pretty suffocating.

The offense started guns blazing. On an 8 play, 61 yard drive, Jimmy G threw 6 times, ending with a 3 yard strike to Kendrick Bourne. The rest was a series of 7 yard runs by Tevin Coleman. To the tune of 22 carries, 105 yards. Speaking of Kendrick, Eddie Kendricks provided the only bright spot for Minnesota as he picked off an ill-advised Jimmy G pass late in the 2nd quarter. It turned into a measly 3 points, and ther 49ers never looked back.

Today, we have the improbable Houstons against the venerable Chiefs. With the path cleared by the Tennessee Tuxedos for the Chiefs, I see walk-through for KC. I’ll keep my earlier prediction of 35-20 KC.

After yesterday’s outlandish stomping of the Ravens by the Titans, I’m going with Green Bay to beast Seattle handily, 28-17 (read the Post of the Day!).

    A good season to get my first ever POTD! “Now I know our side will win.”

      I screwed up the quote. I couldn’t put my mental finger on it, but I knew it didn’t sound right.

    Yeah, our defense did shine and it couldn’t have come at a better time This season still reminds me a lot of ’81’. Didn’t think I would have this much fun being a Niner fan again. but here it is.

  3. unca_chuck says:

    No shit. That 8 play 8 run drive was epic. They knew we were running and couldn’t stop it. Beautiful.

  4. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. Blown coverage by the Chiefs, Kelce drops a 1st down pass, blocked punt. 14 – 0 Houstons.

    Another shocker in the works.

  5. alleykat69 says:

    Another drop to stop another drive for KC.
    They really have played bad at home this year, the trend continues…

  6. unca_chuck says:

    Jeeeeeebus. KC and the Fuckup band. KC D finally stops houston and then HIll blows the punt.

  7. Winder says:

    They keep fucking up they might not be able to get back in it

  8. alleykat69 says:

    Unreal!
    Houston we have a problem..

  9. unca_chuck says:

    Houston making all the wrong plays now.

    It’s not how start but how you finish.

  10. unca_chuck says:

    Jesus. Bill O’Brien gave this shit away.

  11. unca_chuck says:

    Houston finally scores.

  12. Barleyfreak says:

    In other news, just one day after his offense put up one of the worst performances in NFL playoff history, Vikings Offensive Coordinator Kevin Stefanski is hired as the new head coach of Cleveland. We keep Saleh, looks like.

    Gotta love the timing. I can see them hashing it out now…

    “Should we hire the man in charge of one of the best defensive efforts or the man in charge of one of the worst offensive displays in playoff history?”

    I wet myself regularly. I need to clean Nipper’s van.

  14. Grumpy Guy says:

    It’s a losing sucker bet to let Rodgers have one play that decides the game.

    We need to beat the Hell out of the Packers next week and not let them stay close.

  15. rtfirefly says:

    Bring on the Packers!
