Five. More. Days.

The 2021 football season comes rushing at us in 5 days. The hype, the backlash, the prevaricating, the questions about our starting QB and all that jazz can be put to rest. The game will actually finally be played on the field! WITH fans! Not that we will see the boys in person any time soon. Our first home game is September 26th, against the Packers.

With that being said, Trey lance still isn’t throwing footballs. He’s dealing with the bone chip in his index finger. He’s out of the splint, but no throwing. This may slow our roll a bit, but the hope is the Niners can treat these first two games as extended pre-season game in preparation for the real deal come the 26th. Neither the Eagles or Lions are very good, so the chance to ease into the meatier part of our schedule when we face GB, Seattle, and AZ will be a welcome one.

Dee Ford is apparently ready to ease back into action after he, by his own account, rushed himself back into action nearly a year ago, costing him the entire season. Not sure who OKed this course of getting football-ready, but it sounds pretty stupid. He has seen the light (I guess) and everyone is saying the right things about his progress, and he will be used on an as-needed basis. Nothing near full time. A la Fred Dean one would hope. The rest of the line looks strong and healthy, so his passing down playing should be effective.

Of course things hardly go as planned, so we just have to wait and see how this plays out. Almost there!!

    It has been a fun but very long offseason. If our defense can stay away from to many injuries we should be one of the toughest teams in the league. We shall see.

    As usual, it is all about the pressure. If we can get consistent pressure, and it looks like we can given we played our backups most of the preseason and did well without having to blitz much, it will go a LONG way to winning games.

    Jimmy G just needs to hit the passes that are available to him and not make the stupid turnovers. We have enough offensive weapons that we should be able to move the ball down the field efficiently, if not in big chunks. The run game looks solid, and that will help play action (on 1st down hopefully). Throw in some razzle-dazzle with Trey Lance, and we have the recipe to win a lot of games.

    I’m going 13-4 they have a soft schedule to start and finish with..

  5. unca_chuck says:

    12-5 seems to be the number.

    Vegas has them surprisingly low at 10.5 wins. Good time to bet the over.

    These red and gold chumps won’t win more than five games, And then you’ll blame it on injuries and bad officiating, as always.

    That Giants playoff bet would have yielded a fortune. 70:1 odds at the beginning of the year to make the playoffs.

    Shanahan reports that Jaylin Hurd likely heading to IR.His knee hasn’t responded well after the Raiders game even after giving him a few days off, it was still hurting ..BUST he’s Crystal Todd..
    Could bring up Kelvin Benjamin from the taxi squad.
