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…..
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…
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.
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.
Going back to the same shit that obviously doesn’t work is just plain stupid. Yet here we are.
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.
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.
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.
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..
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…..
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.
Nice. I like hearing things I’ve never heard before.
Forgot to put this in , , ,
Bonzo and JPJ can’t get enough credit for their work in this band.
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.
Bozio was with him for a while. I think Ohearn was too. Zappa’s music could be a bit bazaar but when I listen to the musicianship it blows me away how good they were. And then, after a few listens the songs arm great too!
The bass rifts on this song are great!
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.
The matching solos w/Belew and Zappa is pretty fucking cool. Wish I had seen this lineup.
Bozio is amazing.
I’d never heard this before. Sounds different for the Doors. “One more thing, thank you.”
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.
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.
Sounds like fanfare or the common man, ELP. Till the horns come in.
At least we moved the ball. I don’t get why they didn’t throw it in the end zone on 3rd.
They need to fire Shanahan tomorrow.
Shanahan is worthless. He just ended Lance’s season.
I can’t fucking believe he called a QB draw.
Yes he did, I thought everyone learned from RPG III
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.
Jesus Christ Lance’s leg probably snapped like Joe Theismann’s.Fuck Shanahan’s stupid play calls!!
Red zone pussy calls yet again.
I’ve lost all my faith in this coach. Fucking lose. I hope they fuck this all up. Shanahan needs to go. Tomorrow.
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.
There is the difference between Lance and JG, Trey would have made that pass.
Hufanga off to a huge start this year.
The Niners will win this going away because Chuck wants them to lose. And Kyle isn’t going anywhere
I’m baffled beyond reason at what that was all about.
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..
We’re lucky Geno Smith isn’t our QB, he sucks.
Thanks Unca, I’m able to watch the 9ers back here in NC.
Cool! I’ve turned on about 8 people who are out of town to it. Thanks to my son.
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!
The O line has been fairly outstanding today.
Here come the pussy calls from the 4.
Brilliant. Lucky we didn’t lose the ball there.
Shanny is a pussy!!!!!!!!!
Fire this piece of shit.
Aya. The Deebo run. who’s looking for that?
Here’s another Shanahan special. Another 4th quarter collapse. Because Shanny is a pussy in the red zone.
Bailed out by the flag.
Brendel’s going to get his ass chewed off he was responsible more then anyone on that goal line fuck up!!
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.
Shanny about to snatch another defeat from the jaws of victory.
Fucking Shanahan is playing like a pussy.
He refuses to throw on first or second down.
Drives me batshit crazy.
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!!!!!!
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.
Once again the team is bailing out the coach.
Mother fucker. Shanny is a bigger pussy than Harbaugh.
4th quarter, game 2.
This is when we threw our first pass into the end zone.
Shanahan should be shot.
The team is bailing out this coach.
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.
Did they throw on first down all day? Maybe once?
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..
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.
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.
Wow. The Raiders get hosed on BS call on 4th down. And AZ ties it with 00:00 on the clock.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
If Eddie was running the team, Shanahan would be out of a job. Today.
With Jimmy G replacing The Great Trey Lance, our odds to win the Super Bowl actually got better.
Until he gets hurt.
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.
New thread is up.
