The first game 17 in NFL history, with the added playoff spot adds lots on intrigue as wel would be out without it, but color me disappointed. All signs point to Jiminy Cricket starting. Not happy about that. I thought Lance’s game showed enough progress to allow him the chance to play a meaningful game. But no, Kyle rides with the dead horse, Jimmy G.
And make no mistake, this decision has NOTHING to do with Kyle’s perception of how well Lance grasps the offense. This is strictly Shammy’s bullheadedness getting in the way. Oh well. The hope is after the teams trade 1st quarter pick 6’s, Kyle makes the change.
On the good news side, our defensive backfield is finally back to full health and PI magnets josh Norman and Dontae Johnson will not be starting. Even Ambry Thomas, the guy who is playing well lately is off the COVID list. Al-Saair and Greenlaw are also possibles to play. I hope they can go full speed because they are desperately needed to stop the bubble screens and short shit teams kill us with.
This game will depend on how well Elijah Mitchell can run, and how much pressure we get on Matt Stafford. Do both well, and we can win.
Still think Shanny keeps his spell over McVay. 30-21 Niners.
I was gonna play Karn Evil 9, but this is just too awesome not to play. I’m sure some of you remember when this was part of the CBS Sports intro.
Looks like 3 Rivers, but then it doesn’t. The old Expos stadium?
This is an awesome rendition. I pull it up on youtube every year or so and watch it again. Wish I could have caught ELP live back in the day
I know. Didn’t see them either. But Brain Salad Surgery is one of my all time favorite albums. Did see Jethro Tull a bunch of times.
Ok. Here it is. Just a little too young for this show, but what a lineup.
As much as I want the Niners to win, if they go down in a ball of flames and it is JG throwing two picks for six, I will be cheering my ass off, I think this is a dumb move by Kyle. He is setting Lance backwards till next season.
I am not surprised he is starting JG. Steve Young offered some insight (opinion) on how the locker room seems more poised to support a JG start.
Trey is starting next year, without a doubt. JG is gone. I also get it that Shanahanahan says that the goal is to get IN to the playoffs because anything can happen. Most of us have been thinking that we’d be one and done. But if we don’t get in, we’re none and done. I can see JG flailing. I could see Trey losing too though. But I have been wrong at least the last 3 times we played the lambs, so I hope we make it in. And I have no problem with a QB gritting it out through pain, as long as they get it done. If he starts air-mailing throws though, KS had better be ready to bring in Lance. In fact, it would not surprise me if he pulls Lance near the goal line play anyway, ala earlier in the season.
“puts in Lance”
Couldn’t ask for a better game at this time of the season. Crunch time. If we put the pressure on Stafford I wonder how long Mcvay keeps him in there. This is gonna be 49er football today, if Jimmy fucks up i don’t think he will be in there long. Should be the best game of the year.
Williams is out. That might change everything.
I don’t remember where I read it, but the Niners ran the ball on the Rams, very well. An analyst said that the Rams front D is geared to stop the pass. So we shall see
Losing Williams is very bad.. We predominantly run left. K’Waun out hurts as well, but as long as Norman is on the sidelines I’m fine.
Just looking over at the draft results on the column to the right and we only have 2 players from Lynch’s first draft. Kittle and DJ Jones. I guess it’s true about is a gamble. We have 4 from the 2018 draft but that might change soon. We got some great players but we whiffed on a bunch of em also.
They have hit gold on low picks but their high round picks have been pretty bad.
Still about the run game for us.
Yep, without the run game we are toast.
Ain’ts already up 7-0.
As usual the D came to play, let’s see what offensive magic Kyle has dreamed up
One thing we’re not changing RB’s every year it’s Elijah Mitchell’s job!! He’s just a beast that can carry the rock with punishing runs and quickness!
Yeah he’s had some injuries but most backs get beat up 🤕.What happens with Sermon next will be interesting?
Jimmy with the 10 yard underthrow. Fucking Hasty had his guy beat and had to wait 5 minutes for the pass to come down.
And Wishnowski with the 30 yard punt.
McVay taking a page from Kyle, Niners had the ball for 4+ minutes
Fuck you Higbee hope your next shenanigans have u carted off the field!!
Sold out on the run, and got burned that would of been a huge momentum turn if they stopped them there..
Shit time of possession sucks right now, and now Jimmy fucking up yikes!!
Fucking Jimmy G. Thank God we have our 25 yard puntr.
yeah, this ain’t working
That should just about do it for this one. Better hope a miracle occurs in Atlanta, else this season is over.
Shamahan has to go..
The Genius is actually a moron.
We might see Trey at the half
Anytime you have a injured QB that can’t throw the ball down the field you will not win games. 3rd and 24 and you run the ball…not good
A quarter and a half, that’s all it took. I knew this would be a rout, but I thought it’d take a bit longer than this.
And they better draft a kicker next year
The hallmark of a Shanahan-coached team, constantly shooting themselves in the foot. Mistake after mistake. But he’s a fucking genius. May as well put Lance in now if only for some additional seasoning.
5 yard passes isn’t going to cut it
Shit now Jimmy is throwing worse then Big Ben!!
There is the first INT, I said he will throw 2 earlier
What the fuck was that supposed to be?
FUCK THIS SHIT!!!
GET LANCE IN NOW!!!
I realize the Niners front 4 are very good, but I would like to see more blitzes to take an opposing QB out of his rhythm
What’s funny is there was a guy 10 yards in front of that throw and 10 yards behind it.
I wonder if Dontae Johnson will be next year. My money says absolutely. They love that guy in Santa Clara. Has he ever actually defended a pass? Since college I mean?
38 secs, 3 runs the out
3 and out all runs
The prevent defense gives us 3.
Why doesn’t Kyle call plays like that all game long? And why can’t Jimmy perform like that all game long?
Bend over and let a real NFC west team give you the business.
Like your mamma gives it to you.
Good call, asswipe.
Wow, Kyle making adjustments for his play calling? I am shocked
Well now. Nice drive. All that shit and we are only down 7.. Can the D get a stop?
A glimmer of hope! Right after the pathetic Rams troll makes an appearance. Need a turnover now.
The Saints are making this easy. Shanahan had better sell out the rest of the way, because the only way they’re getting in is by winning.
What happens to Mostert next year
Trade him for a CB,
That pass looked as good as Jimmy throws.
This is unreal..
Shanny pulling out the stops. Ryans blitzing. Only took 17 games to listen to me…
GO MOTHERFUCKERS!!!!!!! PLAY some DEFENSE!!!
He almost dropped it. Great start to the half! Time for a turnover! That idiot troll jinxed the Lambs!
Just give Gould more money and have him do both kicking jobs
The D just came up big
There’s my turnover!
Why shouldn’t this game be like all the other fucking nightmare close stupid fucking mistake-filled games?
Jesus. I’m too old for this shit.
D-line stepping up big time, but third and long continues to bite this team in the ass. They lost a lot of field position on that big completion.
Okay so the run eats up the clock, but the Niners need to score to finish this game, I do not want an OT game!!!
Mitchell runs his ass off. Hard not to love that guy.
And there is the 2nd pick.
That was a horrible throw.
Jesus.. Late and behind into double coverage. Fuck, jimmy. Don;t be an idiot.
Fucking bullshit, Jimmy. How fucking stupid are you????
That was a FG taken off the board.
I agree with Jimmy though, he was slapped in the head.
We don’t get calls. The hit didn’t cause the pick. Jimmy threw yet another shitty pass.
This is all on Garoppolo.
Jimmy and Kyle get to eat this one.
God I can’t stand the Amish Kupp!!!
The Pick was Jimmys undoing
3rd down passes have hurt the Niners
Jimmy comes through to Jennings!!!
Bad Jimmy, Good Jimmy, Bad Jimmy, Good Jimmy.
Fred Warner with the play of the game. WE WON THE TOSS!!!
It wouldn’t be. Niner game without OT
This shit is gut wrenching.
How appropriate that Thomas makes the play. Way to go Rook!!
That turned out to be an unbelievable game.
Wow, what a play by the beleaguered rookie Thomas! Good things happen when you play the ball!
And the Rookie Ambry Thomas who’s taken a lot of abuse just saved the 49ers season!!!!
Doctor Jimmy and Mister Jim
Just took down the Rams to get the win!!
What a fucking game!! God I need a double bourbon 🥃 🥃
A shot of Jameson, I already had mine
The entire d-line was off the hook today. Completely erased the LA running game and harassed Stafford all day. JESUS!
What a great game. I expected to win this one but had no idea it would go like this. If this one doesn’t light a fire under everyone’s ass nothing will.
One cheek = two feet. Amazing that one of the much-maligned cornerbacks seal the game.
Ambry has been playing pretty well these last few games.
Bob Saget dead at 65 found unresponsive at a Ritz Carlton Hotel in Orlando Florida!!
Never really liked Full House. He was a seriously raunchy comedian though. Nothing like the guy he played on TV
Just enough good Jimmy to overcome bad Jimmy. With a LOT of help from the D, the Online, Mitchell, Jennings, and even…Gould. Crazy game.
Juice with the FG holds as well.
Raiders dumb out and give up 32 yards with 10 seconds left to give up the game-tying score.
Their front 4 has been killing the Chargers line so naturally they rush 3 on the last 2 plays. I swear to God these guys are imbeciles. They won the toss tho. Charger coach is an idiot as well.
Talk about crazy Raiders/Chargers going into OT tied up! Both teams in if they just tie, and Pittsburgh takes it in the ass and would be eliminated!
Chargers coach is a moron.. He just blew the playoffs for the Chargers.
Flores, Nagy & Zimmer added to the unemployment line.
Flores was a bit of a surprise for me.
GM Rick Spielman as well in MN.
Thought Pace in Chicago would be included but I don’t see it.
Pace went too apparently.
Black Monday keeping it’s reputation intact.
Halas family in Chicago are dinosaurs.
Read a piece recently where former Bears OL star Olin Kreutz was offered a job as Asst OL coach for $15/hr.
You want fries with that? Seriously?
That’s beyond stupidity and becomes an outright insult.
Chargers could have let the clock run out and made the playoffs but instead call time out on 3rd and 4 and of course the Raiders get the 1st down and kick the FG. He’s lost 3 games by terrible decisions. The KC game he gave up 9 points not kicking FGs and lost in OT.
Wow. Stupid fuck.
So Ian Rappaport thinks Jim Harbaugh will either go to the Bears or the Raiders. Good fit for the Bears maybe, but not to the Raiders.
Fucking Harbaugh back in the NFL? Be still my heart. He’s a fucking anachronism. He and the Bears can play 1950s football, go 9-8, and miss the playoffs every year.
If he has the chance pretty sure it will be the Bears. Unless they draft one he won’t have a Frank Gore this go round. It would be fun playing against him. Wonder if McCluhan(sp) will help with their drafts. Just might resurrect part of the old Black&Blue division.
Gettlemen retires as GM with the NY Giants why wasn’t he fired instead and why is Joe Judge still the HC? You know when your a shit team u just have to clear out the stench, some teams never will get that!
Miami HC Brian Flores was a real surprise especially after going 8-1 down the stretch, he’s to good of a young coach to be unemployed very long! I’ve heard rumors they’re was internal bickering about changes on the coaching staff to the continuing obsession of going after Deshaun Watson who Flores did not want to pursue.
Did you see the play NY ran on 3rd and 9 from their own 5? They had the QB behind center, and had 3 RBs crowded right next to and behind the QB. A 1930s formation that got nothing.
The fans went bonkers. Unreal how fucked up that organization is. Even the Jets have more hope now.
Flores was stupid. Sounds a lot like when Monte Clark got the axe from Joe Thomas. We went right into the toilet after that.
New thread is up.
