Game Day – Playoffs?!? Yes, Playoffs

I guess. But hey, we are in the 7 hole as of now. Final playoff spot. And we pretty much control our destiny with upcoming games vs the Rams and Vikings among the last 7 games. The Rams have a very tough roadie in Green Bay tomorrow, so in a perfect world the Rams lose, the Niners win to take the 6th spot, and we are only one game behind the 5th seed Rams.

Good news is Dre Greenlaw is off the IR and could play. Dee (found on road dead) Ford unfortunately has at least one more week on the IR according to Shanahan. Elijah Mitchell is questionable, and I’d love to have him back as Sermon doesn’t appear to be much of anything, and Hasty seemingly has passed him up, but Wilson looked OK, and I hope he looks better because I want Deebo running routes, not running up the middle. He has been a great disruptor as a running back, but still and all, he’s more disruptive as a wideout.

I’d really like to think that the AZ game was a real eye-opener for everyone on the team and in the front office that this game isn’t won on accolades and twitter posts. It isn’t won by press clippings and pre-season predictions. It is won in the trenches. It is won by not turning the ball over. It is won by not committing stupid penalties. It is won by playing 60 minutes of football, not 30, 45, or 59 minutes.

The 49ers have done that for 2 games this season. The Rams game and the Jags game. The good news is those are our last 2 games. The bad news? Well, it is consistency. Jimmy G has played well the last couple games, we haven[‘t turned the ball over, and last week especially, we only had one penalty.

Keep this up and we should be fine. And we are winners in 3 of our last 4 games.. But that one was a huge steaming turd of a game. Like to think we can win this going away like 30-20. The Vikings defense doesn’t leap off the page with anything they do well. The issue will be with our defense stopping the Kirk Cousins led offense. As usual, the play in the trenches will be a big factor.

Pressure Cousins, and he becomes average to poor. Give him time and he will hit a big play or 3. Van;t understate how big this game is Let’s hope these guys don’t come out flat and disinterested like that AZ game.

    This whole game depends on Jimmy and both the lines. The last couple of games have shown the players just how good we can be and hopefully the ball with bounce our way again.

  2. unca_chuck says:

    Get ready, Irish… Lots of running today.

  3. alleykat69 says:

    Dammit Jimmy wtf? Terrible Throw for the pick!
    Shanny in his face and I like that!

  4. alleykat69 says:

    Well that was a nice drive, whatever Shanny said while getting In Jimmy’s grill worked.Big plays by Mitchell,Aiyuk& and the savage Deebo got 6 and the score!

  5. Irish Kevin says:

    Quit with the trick plays, lucky to get a D hold to keep the drive alive.

  6. Irish Kevin says:

    I don’t understand why someone is not open when a pass play is called, Aiyuk, Deebo, Kittle. WTH

  7. unca_chuck says:

    Jennings coming in.

  8. unca_chuck says:

    Coming on nice

  9. alleykat69 says:

    Look at Brunskill getting all the way downfield blocking on Deebo’s awesome 49 yard run!!

  10. alleykat69 says:

    DEEBO SAMUELS unstoppable!! For 6 more!!
    TD number 2 man does this guy ball out are what!!

  11. Irish Kevin says:

    The D needs to get at least one turn over a game, that was a nice pick

  12. unca_chuck says:

    Now we’re talking !!!!!!!

  13. Irish Kevin says:

    Now Kyle do not sit on this lead, Cousins is very good, don’t let the Vikings get into a rhythm

  14. Irish Kevin says:

    Uh, D let’s not fall asleep

  15. Irish Kevin says:

    That is how you burn the 49er D

  16. Irish Kevin says:

    Hopefully the D is embarrassed by that

  17. alleykat69 says:

    Jeez the special team was not very special on that play! That hole opened up larger then Moses parting the sea! 99 yards untouched!!
    Damm new ballgame again..

  18. alleykat69 says:

    What a play by Givens forcing that fumble on a huge hit on Cook who’s hurt.Hope for the best as his ankle got twisted bigtime..

  19. Irish Kevin says:

    I was afraid of that, too much using Deebo as a running back

  20. Irish Kevin says:

    They have to score a TD here

  21. Winder says:

    How bad is Deebo hurt?

  22. Irish Kevin says:

    Need to take your shot in the end zone, just shaking my head at that play

  23. Irish Kevin says:

    No we get to see if Kyle can coach without his best player.

  24. Irish Kevin says:

    The D getting those PIs again

  25. Irish Kevin says:

    They need to score to make it a two score game

  26. alleykat69 says:

    Pound the Rock with Mitchell!!

  27. Lurker John says:

    The good news is that Deebo is standing on the sideline and smiling, so hopefully it’s a minor tweak. Elijah Mitchell, meanwhile, is the clearly the gem of the draft for the Niners. He’s a natural. Huge game today.

  28. Lurker John says:

    Not bad when you can pass an all-time tough guy like Billy Kilmer in your rookie year. Congrats Elijah.

  29. Irish Kevin says:

    This is why they needed to score a TD, now the Vikings have a chance to tie this and send it into OT

  30. Lurker John says:

    Fucking Gould.

    • Irish Kevin says:

      No, fucking Kyle, calling plays not to lose the game, should have been calling plays to win the game

      • Lurker John says:

        You hit 42 yard FG’s in the NFL or you go flip burgers for a living. That was pathetic. They had a great drive to get into position for a FG he should make 90 times out of 100 and he boned it.

        And I’m not defending Shanahan’s play calling because I think it sucks, but they did everything right on that drive except make the kick.

  31. Lurker John says:

    No pass rush.

  32. Irish Kevin says:

    Hail Mary, and this favors the Offense

  33. Lurker John says:

    Williams got away with one there, big time.

  34. Grumpy Guy says:

    Made it more exciting than it should have been at the end. Putting it on our pass defense to hold the game was a bold move and not recommended. But we squeak out a win. Beats losing.

  35. Lurker John says:

    Another ugly one, but I’ll take it. Now it’s time to be the fucking Seahawks Shanahan.

  36. Unca says:

    The refs owed us that non call. Should have won by 18 tho. Special teams were awful.

    • Lurker John says:

      God awful. The TD was just the worst of their crappy ST plays today. But they won. Beat Seattle and they’re right in the thick of things.

  37. Lurker John says:

    Imagine what this offense could do with a really good passing game.

    • Irish Kevin says:

      Walsh always made his plays 50/50, Nolan, Singltary, Harbaugh, and now Shannahan, all love the run

  38. alleykat69 says:

    Rams lose only a game back now and hold the tiebreaker when they smoked their asses!
    Things are started to shape up nicely..

  39. Irish Kevin says:

    Shanahan clearly has a super star WR, he needs to use him like one, I hope this is not an injury that hangs on because Deebo tries to play through it

  40. Irish Kevin says:

    Browns/Ravens 😴💤.
