AKA, hopeless vs Seattle. Looks like this is shaping up to be another confusing mess of a season. Seattle, the team i think is going to hit the skids, even more so now without Russell Wilson, stands atop the NFC West with a hugely bizarre game against Russell Wilson’s new team. If humanly possible, Denver played a worse game that the 49ers. 3 trips inside the 3 to take the lead resulted in 2 fumbles, myriad penalties, and a grand total of 3 points.
Denver coach Nate Hackett (49ers QB coach Paul Hackett’s son) decided to run the clock down with 45 seconds and a 4th and 5 from the Seattle 48 yard line. A 65 yard FG. You have Russell Wilson for fuck’s sake. Go for it.
Anyhow, Geno Smith came out throwing short passes very effectively and got Seattle in the end zone twice for a 17-10 halftime lead. the 2nd half was a little more real as Seattle did nothing on offense and Denver marched up and down the field only to fumble away their chances. And their 12 penalties didn’t help.
What does that mean for the 49ers? Who knows? Are we as bad as that Bears game? Ask the Rams. Or the Cowboys. Well, the Cowboys ARE fucked with Dak out 2 months. One thing about Shanahan that I have to give him credit for is he usually comes back strong after a terrible loss. The 49ers started their run after that completely demoralizing loss to the Cards at home last year.
We are down our #1 RB again. But beyond that, we didn’t have too many injuries. Javon Kinlaw missed a few plays with an ankle sprain, but he came back and played.
Tell ya one thing, falling behind Seattle 2 games to open the season would be a bitch. Shanny and Co better devise some better protections for Lance in this game. Seattle’s defense played pretty well last night, and we know how snakebit Shanny is by Carroll.
I don’t expect the Niners to play a good game. I think we should beat Seattle but who knows. If we win it will probably still be a little ugly. Maybe if we lose all our rb’s shanny will have to open it up some.
Yeah I wish just one time that Kyle would line up 4 receivers and give them all go routes, just to loosen up the defenses. And to protect Trey have him rollout
Have you seen us try to roll anyone out? We always leave the LDE unblocked. Watch the Houston game. Or just about any game last year. We NEVER block the outside guy. Even better if the corner blitzes there’s 2 guys unblocked coming after our QB.
Something needs to be done about Kyle and his conservative play calling when the Niners have a lead. He thinks a 10 point lead at the half is plenty. Which is total BS.
Mitchell officially placed on the IR. niners to sign Marlon mack, recently cut by the Texans. Wondering if this move bumps our 3rd round pick off the roster, but we’ll see.
Since Kittle is likely out next game as well, why aren’t we using Juice more? I think he was on the field for 5-6 plays.
Watching the Chiefs/Chargers, oh to have an offensive line like these two teams
We could if we had a coach with a clue. Say what you will about Andy Reid but he knows how to make adjustments. SD was kicking their ass most of the game and they lost.
Yeah, I am beginning to have serious doubts about both Shanny and Lynch’s decisions. Not only do we have a vanilla offense but we keep going back to stuff that doesn’t work over and over again. We need an OC that can do the job.
Question is, will Kittle play? When is this team ever close to healthy?
Do we still have the hockey trainers?
New thread is up. …..
