Game 9!! COVID? No Proooooblem! Line Up, Boys!

Seven players, four 49ers, and three Packers, tested positive, or were in close contact with a positive player, for tonight’s game. Yipeee! Fuck this season and the horse it rode in on. Every time I think this season can’t get any worse, it does. So we are down THREE starting wide receivers, one quarterback, two tight ends, three O linemen, three running backs, two defensive ends, a cornerback, a safety, and a partridge in a pear tree.

The NFL, in their consummate disregard for player safety and health, says there’s a 0.0% chance that the game will be postponed, barring an earthquake swallowing up Levi’s stadium, or yet another COVID outbreak among the officiating crew, groundskeepers, or cheerleaders.

The game? Who the fuck knows? I don’t think the Packers are for real, but we have depleted the cupboard down to nothing. You look at the current roster depth, and we have one healthy WR. Trent Taylor. Kevin White is gonna to be elevated from the practice squad, and a couple guys, River Cracraft and Chris Finke, who will get the thrill of playing in front of a prime time audience. Let’s hope they don’t shit the bed and fumble their shot away. Like Dante Pettis.

Here’s a fun fact. Not one skill position player on the Niners played in the NFC Championship game 10 months (decades?) ago.

Frankly, as much shit as I’ve been giving Kyle Shanahan, he has done a pretty amazing job of scheming games around:

a) all the injuries
b) a sucky injured quarterback

Can Shanny do it again? Like the Ram game? I won’t hold my breath, but I think Jordan Reed has been cleared to play, and Ross Dwelley has played pretty well in his chances as a starting TE. They both loook to get a lot of looks. Run game? Hasty should get some chances, and he has to avoid fumbles, but GB does not defend the run well. Mullens gets a shot at redemption for his disastrous Iggles game, and GBs defense is middle of the pack and 20th in points allowed. We need to play fairly perfectly to with this one.

    It’s gonna be like watching a brand new team. The ‘who the fuck are these guys game’. There are no expectations here.

  2. unca_chuck says:

    Funny, Scott Osler is advocating signing Colin Kaepernick as our QB. Why? Who knows? What have they got to lose? seems to be the rallying cry.

    Maybe THAT would guarantee a 0-8 record down the stretch. There are no real reasons why we should go that path. My only thought is if we draft a running QB next spring, we could have him sit while Kappy gets beat up. Or hey, who knows? He directs us to another Super Bowl.

    And my dogs will start shitting gold . . .

    Ostler is just another tool like Larry Kruger with no credibility. Hasty is the guy tonight pounding the ball no doubt against a Packer run defense that sucks.They don’t have any choices especially when your best WR actually is not a WR but a TE with the most experience in Jordan Reed who’s probably going at 80% are less!
    Packers blow them out 35-17 as Rodgers and Adams carve them up bigtime..

  4. unca_chuck says:

    Mozeley should have done that the first time

  5. unca_chuck says:

    Jet getting some tough yards.

  6. unca_chuck says:

    That’s how you avoid the sack, Jimmy.

  7. unca_chuck says:

    That was a catch.

  8. alleykat69 says:

    Close but cry me a River…

  9. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. That can’t be an option, Nick.

  10. unca_chuck says:

    Salehh has to know that They are going deep on this first play.

  11. unca_chuck says:

    Stupid challenge. Stupid mistakes. Stupid game.

  12. unca_chuck says:

    Christ, can you hold the flag one pass play? It is virtually impossible to pay corner when the WR runs straight into the CB and curls off the route,

  13. unca_chuck says:

    Tartt got hurt the previous play and Harris is a fucking signpost trying to cover.

    The only thing that warms my heart is that Green Bay is going to get obliterated in the playoffs.

  14. Winder says:

    I knew it was gonna be a long night. Mullens has to play better.

  15. Irish Kevin says:

    Look at the pass protection Rodgers has!!

  16. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. Funny that they jumped offsides but no flag. they showed a medium deep pass that had Hyder being held around the neck.

    Mistake free? Right. At this point i’d rush 8 guys and just blast the fuck out of Rodgers.

  17. Winder says:

    We have to get our running game going.

  18. unca_chuck says:

    The sack came at a good time? Shut the fuck up you idiot. I think that the sack may have been better on that 4th down play, eh, Joe?

  19. Grumpy Guy says:

    Better luck in 2021…

  20. unca_chuck says:

    Well, what fun. So much for my escape from the political nightmare we are going through.

  21. unca_chuck says:

    Skule gets, well, skuled. This looks like we have an easy road to 4-12

  22. alleykat69 says:

    The good news I’m right on track with my Packers 35 points prediction.Bad news I gave Mullens to much credit getting 17 points..

  23. unca_chuck says:

    Verrett falling back to Earth hard tonight.

  24. alleykat69 says:

    Damm fuck the FG they should of went for it!
    It’s not like the 49ers were going to March 96 yards for a score..

  25. alleykat69 says:

    Fuck Joe Buck!!
    What gives him any right to rip a team to shreds?
    As he says to Aikman ,:Well remember what u said early on just cause the 49ers are undermanned…
    Fuck Off Buck u miserable evil creature..

  26. unca_chuck says:

    No no no, I’ve already said it. Fuck Winston, Ryan, or whatever fucking retread is mentioned in the article, We have our dogshit QBs in Mullens and The Beater. We may fall far enough to get Trey Lance without trading up.

    • Irish Kevin says:

      I still say it is the O-line not the quality of the Niners QB’s.

    • unca_chuck says:

      Williams and Richberg are out, Garland is out, and Hruss was benched, Brunskill was playing center for the first time in 12 years. And I think Brunskill went out with an injury. We are beat up everywhere. Mullens is good at times, but he’s no starter. We need to take our lumps yet again and eat shit next year as we develop a QB,

  27. NJ49er says:

    Pretty sad to admit I was waiting/watching election results all night.
    Fuck the NFL 2020.

  28. alleykat69 says:

    Damm I almost hit my Packer prediction of 35-17 by just one point!!!

  29. unca_chuck says:

    This is more fun that that. Excruciating as it is. CNN has been breathlessly saying for 26 hours that we are on the brink of Biden’s win.

  30. unca_chuck says:

    To tell y’all the truth, if we draft a guy like Lance, iot would make some sense to get Kaepernick.

  31. NJ49er says:

    Go Birds!
    Eagles Falcons ’20

  32. NJ49er says:


  33. Grumpy Guy says:

    I’m hearing we’re signing Josh Johnson as a backup QB. No word on whether Nate Davis is available yet. :/ #Fuck2020

  34. unca_chuck says:

    Josh Johnson? Shaun Hill? Fuck it. Get Kappy. Or let’s get Alex Smith and Frank Gore back and we can reprise the stone age offense.

    • alleykat69 says:

      Gore wouldn’t be the worse sign atleast he never gets hurt lol …
      But seriously if they can’t in up drafting one of possible future QB’s in the next draft I could possibly live with Matt Stafford short term,still has a rocket arm, age 31 that’s only 2 years older then Jimmy G with a lot better track record and beens quite durable in his career unlike G man..

  35. unca_chuck says:

    Hmmm. Stafford isn’t the worst idea I’ve heard. He would be a stud with Deebo and Aiyuk on the edges. But he’s got 2 years and a buyout left on his restructured deal.
