Jimmy it is . . .

For better or worse, or til death do us part, Jimmy Garoppolo is our quarterback. Per Ian Rapoport, Jimmy said he is ‘feeling good right now’ (meaning Wednesday), and is ready to go when called upon.

In other news, Nick Bosa was out on the practice field and is also on track to face the Packers, so that’s good news. Warner has been limited in practice, but is practicing as well, so we look to be in pretty good shape.

Is Jimmy one step closer to being knocked out of a game? He sure seemed to be a lot worse after the shoulder injury, so the hope is he gets to the point where he can throw to our guys.

Tell ya one thing tho, bringing in Lance and having him run for a buck fifty would give those fans Colin Kaepernick flashbacks.

Let it ride, baby. Niners 30, Green Bay 20.

    Run game is vastly important. Wouldn’t be surprised to see us come out throwing though, just to try to catch them napping. Esp if they play an extra lineman or bring a safety up close.

    Shit, man, I don’t know. This all feels like torture. Every game has been nail-biting.

    Yeah I was surprised by all the passes in the opening drive of the Dallas game. Nice to see Kyle has tricks up his sleeve, for awhile I thought he only scripted run plays for his first 25 plays.

  3. unca_chuck says:

    I guess it’ll really depend on the wind. At least to start the game. What is so strange is they can play so fucking well at times, and then just derail themselves.

    We’re still playing on house money so as Bachman Turner Overdrive would belt out..Let it Ride!!!

    Green Bay’s Defense is still very suspect to the RUN they give up big chunk plays compared to the 49ers..
    Yeah Jimmy is going to have to hit some passes with maybe a few roll outs?atleast his lower body is still good for now lol ,and since the Pack will stack the box, to try and takeout the running game,but still Mitchell can make them pay behind the best power OL running the ball..
    One thing for sure the Niners special team needs to come up freaking BIGTIME, no fake punts bs, no big punt are kickoff returns of course it works both ways on are Punt/Kickoff returns as well.I know it probably won’t happen,and he’s used enough already, but does anyone think Shanny might use Deebo on atleast a punt return for an extra wrinkle? There’s no tomorrow so allittle Triumph Lay it on the Line, and BTO Let it Ride on Saturday…Bang Bang Niner Game!!

  5. NJ49ER says:

    Gotta remember that LaFleur is no stranger to what we do by a long stretch.
    He and Shanny are attached at the hip.

    Trey is my ‘wrinkle’ for this matchup.
    If conditions prevent, or hinder Jimmeh’s ability to grip/throw, I’m going to the kid from NDSU.

    Loser goes home – Let’r Rip 😀

    Second concert I saw growing up. With Canned Heat and Flash Cadillac and his Continental Kids at the Cow Palace.

    I like out chances but you know this one is gonna be tough. There is nothing we can do about the weather.

    • Lurker John says:

      The Niners are going to have to come out and punch the Packers right in the mouth. This is going to be a tough game to win, mostly because it’s hard to imagine JG not making one or two critical mistakes. And Rodgers is a holy terror. But the Niners are built to win a game like this. If they do, they might just go all the way. They have to get off to a good start and keep the game close.

  8. Irish Kevin says:

    Everything kat said and I will add stay away from 3rd and long, because the D is going to bring it the first time JG HAS to pass. Even if they don’t believe the shoulder is a hindrance.

  9. unca_chuck says:

    Sure wish they’d get Kittle more involved. Those short to mid-range 3rd downs are ripe for him to make a play. Everyone has to play mistake free football.

    Kittle’s overturned fumble last week would have been a killer mistake. Kittle’s fumble in the AZ game set the tone for the rest of that debacle.

    • NJ49ER says:

      Chuck that pass was the result of the shoulder injury to Jimmeh apparently.
      Extremely under thrown to say the least.
      Jimmeh missing Aiyuk, another pick etc are major fuckups that Dallas didn’t capitalize on.
      We were lucky to survive that game simply because Dak sucked more than Jimmeh.
      We’re going to have to keep ARod on the bench and lean on our Defense if we’re going to survive another Round.
      Kittle is the weapon that makes the ground game go too.
      Jennings has become the 3rd down target.
      Still hoping to see Trey get some action in this one.

    For no other reason than someome posted this, enjoy.

    • alleykat69 says:

      Nate “The Great” Thurmond one hell of a player who was underrated when all the prestige was handed out to Russell,Chamberlain,and Jabbar!
      Jabbar came right out though and acknowledged that Thurmond was the toughest player I ever faced and did the best job of all defending me..

  11. Lurker John says:

    “49ers football. Torture.” Yes it’s all very reminiscent of the 2010 Giants season.

  12. Lurker John says:

    That’s a great photo of Thurmond and Kareem! I really loved those Warriors’ unis when I was a kid. An absolute basketball junkie during those years, that’s what I was.

    • unca_chuck says:

      It broke my heart when they traded Thurmond in ’74. Then we faced him in the playoffs in ’75. Saw game 1 vs the Bulls and game 3 of the finals. Thurmond had a terrible game in game 1. Rick Barry went off. 35 points iirc.

    • unca_chuck says:

      When he and Attles played together, NO ONE fucked with the Warriors.

  13. Lurker John says:

    Yeah, a lot of folks forget that Nate was not on that ’75 championship team. He was a real fan favorite. Me and my old man loved him. And Barry was a beast in the playoffs in ’75. What a great season that was. I spent many a school night staying up too late so I could listen to Bill King call the games.

    And you’re right about Thurmond, he was ripped. He looked like he could tear a phone book in half. Those W’s were a tough group, with Al Attles setting the tone. It was a different NBA back then, much more physical.

    Slow day in the SF Chron today Eric Branch article was on special teams, yawn 🥱

  15. Irish Kevin says:

    So radio sports analysts have worked the game to death, now we have to Wade through all the pre game analysts and then it will be game time, hopefully the Niners can pull a rabbit or two out of their helmets. They say GB run defense can’t stop the run, these kind of statements make me nervous, sometimes a team reads that and steps up. If that happens JG is in big trouble with his hand and shoulder.

    • Winder says:

      Just like most games the team who makes the fewest mistakes will probably win. Rogers has had a really good year but if we can pressure him he can get got. They are getting both a tackle and a LB back for this game it could make a lot of difference for GB. With JImmy just about every game is a grit your teeth affair.

  16. NJ49ER says:

    Well some good news, NYG hired a GM from Buffalo.

    • Winder says:

      I really don’t like the the NY Giants. I looked it up and we have played them a total of 42 times over the years and we are 21/21 in those games. I think it stems from listening to my dad get pissed about YA Title going to them.

  17. unca_chuck says:

    Once again the game hinges on how much self-inflicted damage Jimmy does.

    The run game didn’t include Mitchell or eebo so GB will see much different looks..
