Game Day 6 – Make or Break Time

This early in the season and we are already at the crossroads. Win this game, and we allay some fears that the team is on the road to nowhere. Lose the game, and the season is pretty much a wash. Seattle is paying the Cards, so they look to keep their roll going. We would be down 4 games 6 weeks into the season. Seattle could very easily be 1-4 seeing as every game has come down to the wire. Even the Falcon game was in doubt till the end. Their defense isn’t scaring anybody, but Russell Wilson sure is.

But i digest. The Rams on the other hand have played nothing but stiffs. Their lone loss came at the hands of the Buffalo Bills. They’ve beaten the No-Skins, Eagles, Cowboys, and Giants. Yeah, we couldn’t handle the Iggles, but they barely beat the Giants. Different Sunday, different outcome. Yadda yadda yadda.

At this point I really don’t know. What I do know is that Bruce Allen is back on the practice squad, and Moseley and ‘Spoon will play. Sherm had a setback, Greenlaw was fairly ineffective, Kwon Alexander is doubtful, and the defense is still a hot mess.

I don’t know. We win a shootout? WTF. Sure. Why not?

    DaVante Smith for “Bama looks like a stud WR.

  2. NJ49er says:

    We gotta be thinking OT/CB/S/LB looking down the road.
    Interior OL guys can normally be found at cheaper slots.

    Next years’ Cap situation is going to be a bummer,(for all concerned), due to the loss of revenue this year.
    Gotta be concerned about paying top dollar to Jimmy and, I’m guessing, they’re going to use the out clause to reduce his Cap hit anyway.
    Fat Contracts need to be scrutinized and acted on. (Dee Ford).

    Now that our once dominant DL is falling apart, our Secondary is easily exposed and, needs to be a priority in the Draft.
    No way I see a second Contract for ‘Spoon either.
    Hoping to see something from Jauan Jennings this season too.
    Pettis is a lost cause to me.

  3. Winder says:

    Yeah, I can see lots of changes on the horizon. We truly miss Buckner, he was the heart and soul of the line. We gotta address the DB’s first in my mind. And if we continue to implode we might get a shot at a QB. I really like Jimmy but we need a mobile QB. I know it’s hit and miss with those guys but i think we gotta take the shot.

  4. unca_chuck says:

    This season is make or break for Jimmy. Starting in a couple hours. I’m baffled how little attention we paid to the secondary and the O line.

    What I thought were HUGE needs, the team basically ignored.

  5. Winder says:

    We have to play better than we did last week. We still have some pretty good players. The whole team is gonna have to step up.

  6. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, with everyone throwing us under the bus I think we show some heart.

    Enough for a win? Sure. 31-27.

  7. unca_chuck says:

    Want the Rams and the Dodgers to go down tonight.

  8. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. Like it. We’re moving.

  9. alleykat69 says:

    Damm nice drive 6 plays 76 yards!!
    That’s the type of start they needed!
    Deebo And Kittle getting it done!!

  10. unca_chuck says:

    Jimmy still looks off.

  11. unca_chuck says:

    He needs to hit some passes downfield. I mean 10-15 yards. Not even thinking deep.

  12. unca_chuck says:

    Holy fuck. What in the wide wide world of sports is going on here?

  13. unca_chuck says:

    Way too conservative.

  14. unca_chuck says:

    Well, that worked!!!

  15. unca_chuck says:

    Stupid stupid stupid.

  16. Irish Kevin says:

    This is the problem with Kyle, he thinks an 8 point lead is enough to win the game. Control the clock

  17. unca_chuck says:

    Fuuuuuuck. Shanahan is trying to run the clock down. He stopped throwing. It pisses me off.

  18. unca_chuck says:

    Jesus. Shanny playing to kill the clock, not get the points.

  19. Winder says:

    That was a missed opportunity those last set of downs

  20. unca_chuck says:

    Well, that worked out about as well as can be expected.

    Like the quick passes. Line play is much improved over last week.

  21. Winder says:

    I keep thinking about when we first got Jimmy in those last 5 games of the year. He didn’t stay in the pocket like he does now for the most part. He made things happen when he rolled out. But I guess the run game dictates most everything we do now with the play action.

  22. unca_chuck says:

    Uhh oh. Didn’t like any of those plays.

  23. unca_chuck says:

    Mostert is out. Fuck.

  24. Winder says:

    We gotta play a whole 60 fucking minutes.

  25. Grumpy Guy says:

    I thought we’d look better after getting our asses kicked, and we do… But it’s still only a two-score game. Got to get at *least* one more TD and a FG to hold on to this game.

  26. Irish Kevin says:

    Nobody can evaluate Jimmy this year, bad o-line and his ankle. If the whole team was healthy I don’t think fans would be down on JG

  27. unca_chuck says:

    3 and out ain’t gonna do it.

  28. Irish Kevin says:

    Why is it the Niners look horrible in the 2nd half of games. And it goes way back, even before last hares SB

  29. unca_chuck says:

    Bum ankle or no, they need to throw the ball past the line of scrimmage.

  30. unca_chuck says:

    They are gonna hit something deep eventually.

  31. Winder says:

    here we go fucking penalties.

  32. unca_chuck says:

    Moseley is playing the ball.

  33. unca_chuck says:

    Getting killed on the line all of a sudden.

  34. unca_chuck says:

    Verrett!!! Play of the game so far. Cupp with 2 huge drops.

  35. Winder says:

    That;s what Im talking about

  36. unca_chuck says:

    Goddamnit Bourne. But these play calls still piss me off. ONE first down pass. And LA running all over us,

  37. unca_chuck says:

    Now Kittle. Drops are killing us,

  38. Irish Kevin says:

    Not even 3 points scored, terrible

  39. unca_chuck says:

    Can you fucking throw on 1st down??????

  40. Grumpy Guy says:

    Eating up the clock, even if it doesn’t look like much.

  41. Grumpy Guy says:

    Actually kind of surprising to be winning by 12 with the Rams running so well. Goff has been a non-factor.

  42. alleykat69 says:

    There making the plays when they have too.
    CB ‘s playing playing great, OL holding up, fuck the Rams 🐑 the Niners are out playing them.

  43. unca_chuck says:

    We need to score a TD,

  44. Grumpy Guy says:

    15 point lead, five and a half left. Goff has not impressed so far tonight and the Rams probably don’t have time to run, needing two TDs.

  45. Winder says:

    We need to show some razzle-dazzle with deebo. We got weapons but not using them

  46. Irish Kevin says:

    So much for Goff doing nothing

  47. Winder says:

    That didn’t take long

  48. Winder says:

    teasing with all those short shots. I new they were gonna do that

  49. Winder says:

    the hasty show

  50. Grumpy Guy says:

    Not comfortable putting on the defense. Need a first down.

  51. Irish Kevin says:

    If they get a 1st down game over

  52. Grumpy Guy says:

    Wish we had throw it on 2nd down. 3rd and 7 is going to be tough here.

  53. Grumpy Guy says:

    Wow. Deebo got that on pure desire. It was well played by the Rams but

  54. unca_chuck says:

    Hey now! There you go.

  55. Grumpy Guy says:

    But he just fought through it. Awesome effort.

  56. alleykat69 says:

    DEEBO!!!!
    Huge gutsy run for the win!!!

  57. Winder says:

    that’s a win

  58. unca_chuck says:

    Deebo is such a stud. We need to get the ball to him a lot more than we do.

  59. unca_chuck says:

    Still think some of the play calling was conservative, but we gave up 0 sacks, and kept Jimmy healthy. Kudos to Shanny for getting the ball into Deebo’s hands.Aiyuk and Kittle had nice games. Mostert on the other hand I don’t know.The line play was much improved.

    Pass rush was non-existent though. This is a problem.

    Verrett gets a game ball for his end zone pick.

    • NJ49er says:

      Praise worthy for sure Chuck.
      I’ll go with the 4th down call to Kittle for 6.
      Shanny showed a pair with that call.

  60. NJ49er says:

    Another 2nd half of playing conservative.
    Shanny seems to have a habit of it.

    Happy to steal a W against a Division rival and all but, why sit on the banged up Defense?
    Had Goff been anything but awful, I like how McVay keeps going after it.
    Kyle, not so much.

  61. NJ49er says:

    This game was all about neutralizing AD99 and getting the ball out of Jimmy’s hand quickly.
    Fortunately it worked well enough to get the W.
    Gotta think we could use another Fred Dean-type Trade right about now, to cover some gaping injury holes on D.
    Hope Lynch has some ideas beyond PS poaching.

    • Irish Kevin says:

      Well Bosa probably won’t be 💯% next year, it seems like the ACL takes about 18 months to fully heal. I think you go after anther pass rusher, D Ford can’t seem to stay healthy. So draft or Veteran, I would go draft

  62. unca_chuck says:

    Would love to get someone, anyone with a pulse. Cameron Wake is old but available. Fuck, I don;t know. But we need to do better. We lucked out a bit when Cupper Koop dropped a bomb, and a TD pass. Those 2 plays change the game in a big way. We had our own dropsies as well. Got to tighten that shit up.

Super Bowl WIN or Bust . . . . . .
