2021 Kickoff!!! Revenge of the Niners

Here we go! The game will finally be played on the field! The talk is over! 2021 is here!

I won’t add much to the blather only to say I think Lance will only get 5-6 plays max. Unless it becomes a blowout. This game is about getting Jimmy G back to feeling good and hitting his passes.

Not too worried about the D. This one should be fairly routine.

31-13 Niners.

Any season predictions welcome as well. 12-5.

    Was this the last time Detroit was relevant? Great names in this game, including Detroit RB Billy Simms.

    Good friend of mine got married on this very day, and as the game got closer and closer to the dramatic finish, the dance floor got emptier and emptier until he realized everyone, including me and all the ushers, were packed into a bedroom in the house with the game on.

    11-6 for me Chuck
    We get the W in Motown 23- 10

    Poor Monte Clark. Great coach who never got his due. Loved him as the Niners coach in 1976 as he had the team at 6-2 under Jim Plunkett before getting waylaid by injuries.

  5. unca_chuck says:

    Injury report:

    WR Jalen Hurd (knee) — OUT
    DL Javon Kinlaw (knee) — OUT
    CB Emmanuel Moseley (knee) — OUT

    Kinlaw is becoming a worry. His knee arthritis was a known issue coming out of college and he’s been sidelined a bunch already because of it.

  6. Irish Kevin says:

    Game time boys, let’s go Niners, 28-14 Niners.

  7. alleykat69 says:

    49ers 34-17!!!
    13-4 I’m going all in on a huge season!!

  8. Winder says:

    We needed that stop

  9. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. No chance there. Thankks Detroit.

  10. Irish Kevin says:

    That is not the start I wanted to see

  11. unca_chuck says:

    Goff in mid-season form..
    Then again, so are our fumbling QB issues.

  12. Lurker John says:

    FFS, Garoppolo, execute a play.

  13. Lurker John says:

    There you go.

  14. Lurker John says:

    The Trey Lance era officially begins!

  15. Winder says:

    Kinda weird but it worked

  16. Lurker John says:


  17. unca_chuck says:

    Love it!!!!! Nice toss by Jimmy and Lance to finish the drive!

  18. Lurker John says:

    That was easy!

  19. Lurker John says:

    Sherfield might end up being the free agent steal of the entire off season. He looks legit to me. Mostert, Kittle, Lance and Sherfield all involved on that drive. Nice.

  20. Lurker John says:

    Defense looking shoddy right now.

  21. Lurker John says:

    Rookies making some plays!

  22. unca_chuck says:

    Damn. I could have gotten 15 yards through that hole.

  23. unca_chuck says:

    Fucking run D is pathetic.

  24. Irish Kevin says:

    I will say this again, a running back can collect 200 rushing yards in a game, if you can put it in the End Zone, those 200 yards mean nothing. That RB had two big runs, and all Detroit got was a FG. I can live with that all day

  25. unca_chuck says:

    Yes!! There’s t Goff I know and love!!!!

  26. unca_chuck says:

    Ford making is presence known.

  27. Lurker John says:

    Fuck yeah!

  28. Lurker John says:

    Great pass rush by Ford!

  29. Lurker John says:

    Greenlaw has been all over the place.

  30. alleykat69 says:

    Mostert going to lose his job soon to Shanny’s 2 new young shiny RB duo of Sermon and Mitchell ..Can’t stay healthy! What’s the reason Sermon didn’t dress?

  31. unca_chuck says:

    Run D is a problem, but they can’t afford to run much more.

  32. unca_chuck says:

    Ford!!! Nice penetration.

  33. Lurker John says:

    Ford looks explosive.

  34. alleykat69 says:

    Yeah Dee Ford’s play is like finding loose change in your sofa..

  35. unca_chuck says:

    Detroit already getting booed. Such a great fan base that has been shit on for upwards of 70 years.

  36. Lurker John says:

    31 points in the first half, I’ll take that any time.

  37. The Wun Defense says:

    On the way to a blowout win and you whine and cheese imbeciles are crying about the run defense. What an entitled fan base.

  38. Lurker John says:

    Why on earth would Sermon be a healthy scratch? That sounds ominous. And Mostert down already. I love his talent, but the dude can’t fall down without getting injured.

  39. unca_chuck says:

    I think they just figured Mostert could get through one game.

  40. Winder says:

    Wow, That was sweet. Defenses with have to play the long ball now

  41. Irish Kevin says:

    Wow, the Niners have a passing game, Deebo

  42. Lurker John says:


  43. Irish Kevin says:

    So are the Niners really this good, or is Detroit just really bad?

  44. alleykat69 says:

    34-17 ? What was I thinking they blew right by my 34 with 7:00 minutes left in the 3rd!
    Might as well drop 50 on them now..

  45. Lurker John says:

    38 points and no sign of Aiyuk yet. The D is going to need to tighten some things up moving forward.

  46. Lurker John says:

    Mitchell looks really good. Hard to see how he fell to the 6th round.

  47. Irish Kevin says:

    Is Kyle going to go all conservative and just run the ball, or will he be like Walsh and go for the jugular?

  48. Lurker John says:

    Here we go. Verrett with a knee.

  49. unca_chuck says:

    Shit. Verrett looks done for the year. Really sucks.

  50. Lurker John says:

    Yep. Looks like an ACL. His reaction says it all.

  51. unca_chuck says:

    Now Al Shaair. Fuck.

  52. Lurker John says:

    I think his might be a cramp. Why the hell Shanahan doesn’t start pulling starters at this point is beyond me.

  53. Winder says:

    I hate it when the D plays soft,

  54. unca_chuck says:

    Most of the d line is backups. FOrd and Bosa have been out most of the 2nd half.

  55. alleykat69 says:

    41-17 they should of taken the starters out!
    Verrett blown out knee would be a huge loss, Jimmy Ward calf cramp out just not worth it in a blowout..

  56. unca_chuck says:

    We are gonna need a CB or 2 soon..

  57. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. Way to finish. Shades of Preston Riley.

  58. unca_chuck says:

    Bblitz for fuck’s sakke.

  59. unca_chuck says:

    When arre tey gonna ban artificial turf?

  60. Lurker John says:

    Dontae Johnson is little more than a pulse. The guy has always sucked ass.

  61. Lurker John says:

    Way to close it out Shanny.

  62. Irish Kevin says:

    This is a Niner weakness, less than 5 mins to play and the opposing QB gets in a rhythm and the Niner D can’t stop them.

  63. unca_chuck says:

    Pathetic showing by the defense. Al Shaair is back thank God.

    Now the offense’s turn to suck. Bad coaching in this game.

  64. alleykat69 says:

    Jesus this is beyond ridiculous how much of a clusterfuck they have played down the stretch!!!

  65. unca_chuck says:

    Pussy pussy shit here. God awful/

  66. Irish Kevin says:

    Kyle going with the run, when all he needs is a 1st down to finish this game

  67. unca_chuck says:

    Unreal. Game over but no.

  68. Irish Kevin says:

    Now the D really does need to step up!

  69. Winder says:

    I hate to say this but we deserve to lose this one. It’s on the fucking coaches.

  70. Irish Kevin says:

    Where is a blitz

  71. unca_chuck says:

    Run a fucking blitz goddamn it

  72. Irish Kevin says:

    Finally a stop

  73. Irish Kevin says:

    Go get this QB

  74. Winder says:

    This game reminds me of 1979

  75. Winder says:

    We got lucky

  76. Lurker John says:

    Some ugly shit. Taking a dominating win and turn it into a piece of shit. WTF Shanahan.

  77. unca_chuck says:

    The defense was terrible. They went ultra conservative way too early. Shanny and the DC gave it away.

  78. Lurker John says:

    There was some nice moments on D, but there’s a lot of work to do. Getting gashed on the ground, crappy coverage by the secondary, inconsistent pass rush. And what the fuck are they going to do for corners now? One of these goddamn years they’ll actually bring in some talent at CB. It’s gotten to be ridiculous. You can’t be so thin at that position that one guy going down threatens the whole season.

  79. Lurker John says:

    Ryans is probably going to go through some growing pains as he learns how to make adjustments on the fly, etc., but I’m confident he’ll do that. It’s just a matter of how long it takes. It took Saleh a while too.

    • unca_chuck says:

      Ford and Bosa didn’t play most of the 3rd and half of the 4th quarter. And the coverage sagged off in the 2nd half. Very conservative and it let Detroit back into the game.

  80. Irish Kevin says:

    Kyle still needs to learn to not try to protect the lead, go score and score and score. Do the same thing you did in the 1st quarter in the 4th quarter, if an opposing team does not like you running up the score then that team needs to stop your team, not you going all conservative

  81. alleykat69 says:

    Agree Kevin keep the petal to the metal if they did that more in the 2nd half they could of avoided Verett’s injury which is devastating.Richard Sherman come on down now as the secondary is the weak link now.They need Moseley back as well, as Aubry Thomas looks lost out there.Lenoir way better a player then him..

  82. alleykat69 says:

    And the hits keep on coming after losing Verett for the season, now it’s reported Mostert will miss 8 weeks with a chipped ligament issue in his knee!
    Man I have to pickup Elijah Mitchell for my FF team now…
