Game Day IV – The Eagles Have Crash Landed in SF

The good news for the 49rs is we are getting some offensive talent back. George Kittle, Deebo Samuel, and jet McKinnon are back, and Brandon Aiyuk is coming off a great game last week, so our offense looks to be ready to roll with Nick Mullens getting the start this week over still-hirt Jimmy G. Defensively we are still hurting with Sherm, ‘Spoon, Moseley, Ford, Greenlaw, Bosa, and Thomas all out, and K’Won Williams questionable with a bad hammy.

Still and all, we are going against Carson Wentz. He is putting together a flat awful season so far with 3 TDs against 3 picks, 59% completion percentage, and a paltry 5.6 yards per attempt. All these are last or 31st in the league. They are nearly as banged up as we are, as DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery, Avonte Maddox, and Trevor Williams are all out, so their deep threats aren’t. And they just put their left tackle Jason Peters on the IR with a toe injury.

The Eagles are of course the 3rd winless team we are facing in this early piece of the season, and we really need to get these wins while we can as we healthy up, but as it is, the Eagles have lost to the 1-2 No-Skins, got trounced by the 2-1 Rams, and played the hapless Cincinnati Bengals in an early Stupor Bowl beauty with the perfect outcome, a 23-23 tie.

As usual, pressure Wentz and he flails. He took an astounding 8 sacks, 2 picks, and 2 fumbles against the No-Skins, 2 picks against the Rams, and took 3 more sacks, 2 more picks, and 1 more fumble against the Bengals. So all we have to do is get pressure. Kerry Hyder Jr. has proven to be a very solid acquisition as he has made a ton of plays in the pass rush rotation. He has 2 sacks, 6 pressures, 7 solo, and 14 assisted tackles.

Since I’m dogging Wentz so much, he’ll prolly rush for 80 yards, and it turns into a dog fight. Seriously though, I think this one will be fairly easy as games go as we outscore them by a lot.

    Knowing our challenges with mobile QBs, don’t overlook the possibility of Pederson throwing Hurts at us.
    Desperate times? Desperate measures.
    I’d plan on seeing anything, and everything, in a Primetime game.

    The No-Skins put 27 on them, and the Rams 37. They are banged up.

    A Saints player has tested positive. Shit with COVID may get out of hand after this weekend.

    There may be a little (2-week to month-long) break in this season.

      Yeah, I really didn’t see how they could make football work with covid. I guess they can extend the season for weeks or minimize the season and finish it when they can.

    Carolina with the big win over the Cards. Miami gave the Seahawks a bit of a run, fucking Dallas gets 505 from Dak prescott and they lose!

    The Raiders are retarded. Never understood why, with 5:40 left and time of the essence, they let 2:05 run off the clock instead of using a timeout. Derek Carr is quickly turning into his brother.

  4. Irish Kevin says:

    So what does Mullens need to do to unseat JG. Does everyone here think Mullens wins because of the weak teams they are playing. Or is it he is a good QB

  5. unca_chuck says:

    Yes. I think it’s a little of both but he played well his last stint as starter.

    Nice D. Bad pass there.

  6. Irish Kevin says:

    Talk about sloppy play!! It’s like they forgot how to play

  7. unca_chuck says:

    Well that sucked.

  8. xoot says:

    Mullens looks like he’s dysfunctionally amped full of trump’s uppers. Touch midi. D looks a bit confused.

    WTF kind of football are they playing out Jesus freakin Christ? Get your shit together and wake up!!

  11. xoot says:

    What a beautiful td. Man.

  12. Irish Kevin says:

    High jump

  13. alleykat69 says:

    That was SENSATIONAL by Aiyuk!!!
    What a TD!!! And his Superman leap!!

  14. Irish Kevin says:

    What is wrong with the O-line? Mulllens running for his life

  15. alleykat69 says:

    I can’t stand when they get it these low scoring games, they usually end up on the short end of the stick!!
    Now a fumble by Mullens! OL is sucking tonight!

  16. Flavor says:

    What. The. fuck.

  17. alleykat69 says:

    White Flag!
    U bring in the Beater?
    Can they throw a ball more then 5 yards?

  18. Lurker John says:

    McGlinchey sucks. 4 years and the fucker still can’t pass block. Getting beat like a drum.

  19. unca_chuck says:

    Mullens and Shanahan eat this fucking game. Why do the onsides kick when a 3 and out gets you the ball? Which is exactly what fucking happened. We would have gotten the ball around the 35 if we pinned them back at their 25.

    And WTF is up with the O line? Williams, McGlinchey, Brunskill, Tomlinson, AND Garland all blew. No excuse for Mullens though. He was awful.

  20. Lurker John says:

    Shanahan is overrated. I really hope more people than me can see that. Miserable game. Prepare for more just like it because they’re coming.

  21. unca_chuck says:

    I was very pissed at Shanny’s play calling tonight. Too many wasted pays. He had the one TD drive early with a couple jet sweeps and misdirection plays that worked. So, much like the Super Bowl, we never tried that again. Running up the middle every first down for most of the game is just too predictable.

    Every QB in the league seems to be able to escape pressure to at least throw the ball away except for us. 3 Qbs unclear on the concept. Fucking pisser all around.

    The play of the day was the stupid fucking onsides kick with 2 timeouts and the 2 minute warning,

  22. unca_chuck says:

    2-0 in New Jersey, 0-2 in Santa Clara. The fucking Eagles are in 1st place in the east with a 1-2-1 record.

  23. Irish Kevin says:

    The O-line reminded me of the A Smith O-line, Alex was always running for his life. This is a learning experience for Mullens, he did not handle the D pressure well at all.

  24. Lurker John says:

    Yeah, should’ve kicked it out of the end zone for the touchback. WTF was he thinking there. Just like not using the timeouts at the end of the first half in the SB. The interior OL is a fucking disaster. Brunskill and Garland have no business on the field, I already mentioned McGlinchey, who is middling at best. Williams had a bad game as did Tomlinson. The Eagles DL was rag-dolling them all night.

    Don’t get me started on Saleh, who is also overrated, IMO. The D did okay most of the night, but still gave up some bad plays. I question Saleh’s scheme all the time.

    KS hits on some good plays early then never goes back to them. Where was Deebo? Aiyuk? Even Bourne? They had success early with them and that was it. Why is Pettis even on the roster? Why is Dontae Johnson on the roster? He sucks ass yet he’s out there seemingly every goddamn year. I know there’s been injuries, but WTF. The guy is fucking clueless.

    Shanahan can’t get out of his own way. For such a “brilliant play caller,” he sure serves up a lot of turds.

  25. unca_chuck says:

    Hard be be down on the D line, but i get so sick of teams getting 1st downs on 3rd and long and seeing their QB get 15 yards on a scramble. This team so many time forgets to stay on the edges. Som many times they get burnt cheating toward the middle on sweeps and bootlegs.

    That being said, Hyder is a real find. Our biggest issue is the fact that our QBs don’t have very much time to look downfield. So everything is short. It should have worked tonight but for the bad turnovers by Mullens.

    New thread is up.

  26. unca_chuck says:

    So much for that prediction.
