Must Win Game? Week Two Worries

Here we are, week 2, we are already down our starting RB Elijah Mitchell for 2 months. Our TE, formerly known has Stone Cold George Kittle, is now Brittle Kittle. He is following the career arc of one Crystal Todd Shell, whose outstanding start to his football career (2 sacks and 3 picks, one for a TD his first season) was cut short by his 3rd year due to numerous injuries, and he was done with the game after his 4th year.

And here we are. down one game to the Seahawks. In week one. Everyone else lost, and they were expected to. Ans should have. Had not Denver fumbled the ball TWICE inside the 2, and failed on a third trip to the goal line. Seattle has been a thorn in our side since Pete Carroll was hired 12 years ago. The 49ers are a dismal 7-18 (including the 2014 NFCCG) in the Cheatin’ Pete era. Different teams, different QBs, different stadiums, different everything, Pete has our number. The song remains the same. Even now, despite all this they are 10 point ‘dogs to us. Us! The team the couldn’t do a damn thing right vs another supposedly weak team, the Chicago Bears.

But that was last week. Thing is, should we go down to the ‘Hawks, no matter by what measure, the howling for Jimmy G will be deafening. I could really give a shit. The only way I think they should make a switch is if Lance gets hurt. He HAS to take his lumps to learn the NFL game. Just like the 6-11 Justin Fields did last year. Just like the 3-14 Trevor Lawrence Jags did. Even the 10-7 Jac Mones Patriots.

There is only so much you learn from practice and clip-board holding. The O line, which seems to have played better on paper than they did on the field last weekend, needs to keep Lance much cleaner than they did vs the Bears. Neither team comes in having a very stout pass rush, but that didn’t stop the Bears from getting pressure with ZERO blitzes, and dropping 7 ment into coverage.

This game to me will tell me if Shanahan has learned anything this season. I’m sick of the numerous penalties. Sick of the false starts. Sick of the vanilla offense. Sick of losing ur starting RB to start the season. Again. Granted, this all leads back to the shortened preseason and the lack of pad-to-pad contact in the preseason.

But Shanahan needs to figure out a simple fucking rollout where the RT and TE don’t just run away and leave the rushers unblocked. Fuck me sideways, I see that shit all the time.

    95.7 said the *rumor is that if the Niners lose this week Jimmy will start week 3. Man if that happens Shanny should get canned on the spot. That would indicate he has no fucking idea or plan at all…..

  2. alleykat69 says:

    Sounds like total BS just starting fucked up rumors for the ratings.Jesus they played in a swimming pool in Chicago, not many elite QB’s would of had to pull out all their magic to get a win in that situation.And now they come home with another 80% chance of rain Sunday?.Lance has to feel cursed in his first season at the helm. But anyway fuck the Seahawks, Broncos gift wrapped their win with huge turnovers and a dumb decision with a minute to go 4th and 5 with 3 TO’s and your bigtime player Wilson getting handcuffed by his coach to try a 64 yard FG??
    49ers Defense will shutdown the run, and Geno will get picked atleast twice in another mud bowl as the 49ers prevail 27-13…

  3. Winder says:

    We just might end up in the cellar this year. I really don’t care if we win or lose I just want to see some competent football not a game full of penalties and sloppy play. It’s like we don’t have any constraint on how we play. That is on the whole organization top to bottom. I just hope Lance can overlook the bullshit surrounding him. He is not to blame for this…yet.

  4. unca_chuck says:

    I’d say 75% of the team’s issues stem from the front office and the coaching staff.

    This team is loaded with talent, and yeah, they are the ones that got it, but they are the ones holding themselves back. Shanahan is reminding me of vanilla Mike Nolan.

    Fucking Harbaugh was the same. The ONLY time he would open up the playbook is when they were down big. They all sit on leads and play not to fuck up, and in the end they get lapped.

    Fuck the Walrus, but shit, the dude knows how to coach and to make game-time adjustments.

  5. unca_chuck says:

    Yep. We are gonna see Deebo running and NOT catching passes. Becaue 1 of 7 Deebo runs works. Which apparently is better than the poqwer run game. Which is nonexistent since we lost out lead back again, and we have a shakey interior line.

  6. unca_chuck says:

    Hey, I don’t know. Maybe we come out and kick ass. I sure hope we look much better than last week. We can’t go 0-2 and expect to be anything but a low WC seed, if at all.

    I’m just getting tired of this team not playing consistent football, or playing to the best of their abilities. It is very hit-or-miss and has been for a long time.

    And the front office/coaching staff get off scott-free based on the absolute ineptitude of the last 3 HCs.

  7. Berger says:

    The Berger, that’s me, has done a completely team action. Me, being a team player, has gone to the sports book and put a bet on the Seahawks. It’s ay +9.5. Somebody has to do something about this mess.

    I figure with my betting luck I will lose the bet. So, either I win some money, or better yet, I lose some money and my team wins! Or even better yet, we win by 9 or less. 49ers win and I collect. You guys can thank me later.

  8. alleykat69 says:

    Looks like Kittle is playing now.Bet if it dumps rain he won’t. Doesn’t mean he should be banging his wife with that sore groin though..

  9. unca_chuck says:

    Trey Lance, Jimmy G and Kyle are playing. . . .

    This band was amazing but short-lived. Guitarist Warren Currurullo, bass player Patrick O’Hearn, drummer extraordinaire Terry Bozzio, and his wife Dale were all members of Frank Zappa’s touring band in the 70s. Fun stuff…..

    • Berger says:

      My roommate was drummer taking lessons from Bozio back then. He is still friends with him. He plays drums in a Doors tribute band called Strange Days.

      IIRC, O’Hearn, Bozio and Cuccarullo were all on the Joe’s Garage CD back then. Wjhat a great CD. O’Hear had some great solo CDs. I still play thios CD a few times a year.

  10. unca_chuck says:

    Forgot to put this in , , ,

    Bonzo and JPJ can’t get enough credit for their work in this band.

  11. unca_chuck says:

    Thought they were on Zoot Allures as well. Bozzio and O’Hearn are on the album cover. But who knows? All his songs and band members changed all the time and were recorded anywhere from ’68 to ’78.

  12. unca_chuck says:

    Kittle likely out. It’s a wet track, so, yeah. The Giants are rolling over like sick puppies vs the Dogs, so we need a win from the Niners.

  13. Berger says:

    If it is a Zappa jam that you desire, try this one. I consider this as one of the all-time jams by anybody. Everybody gets some space.

  14. Berger says:

    If I was a baseball player, the first 20 seconds of this song would be my walk-up music when I came up to bat.

  15. Winder says:

    At least we moved the ball. I don’t get why they didn’t throw it in the end zone on 3rd.

  16. unca_chuck says:

    They need to fire Shanahan tomorrow.

  17. unca_chuck says:

    Shanahan is worthless. He just ended Lance’s season.

  18. Irish Kevin says:

    Yes he did, I thought everyone learned from RPG III

    • unca_chuck says:

      He learned how to kill his QB from dear old dad. Did they draft O line help? Barely. Did they sign anyone to protect their investment? Barely. So, let’s shoot him onto linebackers.

      Motherfucker. If I’m Jed I fire Shanny at halftime.

  19. alleykat69 says:

    Jesus Christ Lance’s leg probably snapped like Joe Theismann’s.Fuck Shanahan’s stupid play calls!!

  20. unca_chuck says:

    Red zone pussy calls yet again.

  21. unca_chuck says:

    I’ve lost all my faith in this coach. Fucking lose. I hope they fuck this all up. Shanahan needs to go. Tomorrow.

  22. Lurker John says:

    Shanahan is moron. It was only a matter of time running him like he does. Lance is not elusive at all, he just plows ahead.

  23. Irish Kevin says:

    There is the difference between Lance and JG, Trey would have made that pass.

  24. Lurker John says:

    Hufanga off to a huge start this year.

  25. Kyle Shannahan says:

    The Niners will win this going away because Chuck wants them to lose. And Kyle isn’t going anywhere

  26. unca_chuck says:

    I’m baffled beyond reason at what that was all about.

  27. alleykat69 says:

    God Damm that was a freaking horseshit pass interference penalty on Moseley!!! WTF even Shanahan with the most emotion I think I’ve ever seen from him was going ballistic..

  28. Maggie says:

    We’re lucky Geno Smith isn’t our QB, he sucks.

  29. D Locojuan says:

    Thanks Unca, I’m able to watch the 9ers back here in NC.

  30. Lurker John says:

    Except for the stupid head coach breaking his new QB, the team looks great overall. Much better effort so far this week. Now finish the damn thing off!

  31. unca_chuck says:

    The O line has been fairly outstanding today.

  32. unca_chuck says:

    Here come the pussy calls from the 4.

  33. unca_chuck says:

    Brilliant. Lucky we didn’t lose the ball there.

  34. unca_chuck says:

    Shanny is a pussy!!!!!!!!!

    Fire this piece of shit.

  35. Lurker John says:


  36. unca_chuck says:

    Aya. The Deebo run. who’s looking for that?

  37. unca_chuck says:

    Here’s another Shanahan special. Another 4th quarter collapse. Because Shanny is a pussy in the red zone.

    Bailed out by the flag.

  38. alleykat69 says:

    Brendel’s going to get his ass chewed off he was responsible more then anyone on that goal line fuck up!!

    • unca_chuck says:

      Well, not on the blocked FG.

      If I see another 1st down run, I’m gonna fucking throw a brick through my TV.

      Here we are being shut down again in the 2nd half.

  39. unca_chuck says:

    Shanny about to snatch another defeat from the jaws of victory.

  40. unca_chuck says:

    Fucking Shanahan is playing like a pussy.

  41. Lurker John says:

    He refuses to throw on first or second down.

  42. unca_chuck says:

    Gawd, I can’t stress enough how terrible this play calling is. Shanny is playing halfway through the 3rd quarter like he has a 3 score lead with 5 minutes left. NOT TWENTY TWO!!!!!!

    Fuck him

    Leaving it all up to the defense. Lest week, one broken play broke the game open for Seattle. Here we are, one play from being right in the same boat.

  43. unca_chuck says:

    Once again the team is bailing out the coach.

  44. unca_chuck says:

    Mother fucker. Shanny is a bigger pussy than Harbaugh.

  45. unca_chuck says:

    4th quarter, game 2.

    This is when we threw our first pass into the end zone.

  46. unca_chuck says:

    Shanahan should be shot.

  47. unca_chuck says:

    The team is bailing out this coach.

  48. Lurker John says:

    I don’t think even Chuck Knox was as bound and fucking determined to run the football as this guy. Unbelievable.

    But one helluva game-clinching drive, aided by some penalties in our favor for a change.

  49. Lurker John says:

    Did they throw on first down all day? Maybe once?

  50. alleykat69 says:

    Bad news…Trey Lance has a fibula fracture and ligament tear..Out for season according to Dr.David Chao (sp) similar tô the injury that Prescott had 2 years ago..

  51. Winder says:

    Fuck, that is terrible news. I can’t believe how pissed off I am. I guess I should just be happy for the win. I honestly don’t like the way we play the game even though we have had some good luck it’s just so fucking predictable and boring.

  52. unca_chuck says:

    Shanahan forcing his players to break 3-4 tackles every play to get positive yards.

    And it’s official. Lance is out for the season. Shanahan gets his wish. Spent all your draft capital on a QB you then throw away.

  53. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. The Raiders get hosed on BS call on 4th down. And AZ ties it with 00:00 on the clock.

  54. Berger says:

    I took one for the team and won this game for us. I put money on Seattle knowing how my luck is going right now. I knew however I bet, the opposite would happen. Unlike most of you on here who love to complain, I nutted it up, came up with a plan got this win for us! Do I get any thanks? Nooooo!

  55. Berger says:

    If we would have had this same 4th quarter play calling in the Super Bowl we would have beaten the Chiefs. I’m glad to see Shanny get it right. The 3 young interior O linemen looked pretty good. Especially once Jimmy G got out there.

    • unca_chuck says:

      Pfffffffffffffffffffffft. Shanahan is a fool. Time and time again, Shanahan forces his players to break 3-4 tackles just to get a first down. All though the 2nd half we played ultra conservative. Only Seattle’s ineptitude on offense kept them out of this game.

      The talking heads are all saying they were calling plays to protect Lance and that’s why Shanny is running him. Ludicrous. Look at the FG that was blocked. Did we pass at all in the red zone? Nope. it was the 4th quarter of game 2 before we threw a pass INTO the end zone. The PI against Aiyuk. On that last drive were we scored. Huzzah.

      Shanahan is the most overrated play caller in the league. Any decent offense would have come back against us today with these absolutely asinine play calls.

      How many catches for Deebo? 5? 44 yards? 53 yards rushing. Yay. At least it was only 4rushes. It’ll be great until he goes down with an injury.

      And he achieved his goal to sabotage his quarterback to make his move to keep Garoppolo look like a good call. He and dad will have a good laugh over that.

      • Berger says:

        I don’t care for the play calling that runs the QB. In defense of Shanny, the fact he can run s why so many fans are gaga over him and it is the reason we drafted him. Problem is, he gets injured more than Jimmy G.

        Hopefully I change my mind in a year or two but for now it is an easy call to say we should not have moved up, stayed where we were and taken Mac Jones. He looked like a real QB today. Lance reminds me more of Taysom Hill than a starting QB. Like I said, hopefully I feel differently next year.

      • unca_chuck says:

        No, we didn’t sign him to be Lamar Jackson. We drafted him to be Russell Wilson.

        If that’s what they think he is, then they wasted 3 first round picks. If that’s the case, they are fucking clueless.

        Yeah, tell me when they start running Garoppolo between the tackles. i mean it is such an integral part of our offense.

        And I’ll be pissed when Shanny breaks Deebo running him up the middle as well.

  56. Berger says:

    It’s funny how things work out sometimes. We give up 3 first round picks to replace a winning QB because he gets hurt a lot. Then that QB gets hurt and the winning QB replaces him. If we win the Super Bowl this year, I see a movie coming.

  57. unca_chuck says:

    If Eddie was running the team, Shanahan would be out of a job. Today.

  58. Berger says:

    With Jimmy G replacing The Great Trey Lance, our odds to win the Super Bowl actually got better.

  59. unca_chuck says:

    Bergs, Lance has played 3 games and 1 quarter.

    You’ve got his career all mapped out? Cool.

    I’m sure you threw Josh Allen under the bus after his first 3 games.
