Once again the 49ers are the drama-queens of the NFL. Will Jimmy revert to form? Will Trey Lance ever get to throw a pass? Will the injuries continue to mount? Will Kyle draft another worthless 3rd round running back? Will this be yet another lost season due to injuries and an ineffective offense? Will the entire defense go on IR? Will I stop caring about this team until they get rid of Vanilla Ice Cream?
Will Kyle Shanahan hire an offensive coordinator? Saw this floated in the Chronicle a couple days ago and I’m all for it. Kyle is very good at designing plays. What he is not good at is putting them in the right order. He needs to hire someone who has a better feel for in-game decisions. Kyle gets very vanilla when he is going on a short yardage play. And he fucking flails late in games. See Super bowl XVIVIXC. Whatever the fuck. See the NFCCG. See the Bears game. See the Denver game.
The 49ers were down 14 points with the ball and 10 minutes on the clock. So of course Kyle plays it like he has a 7 point LEAD. The 49ers burned 8 minutes crawling down the field getting to the 22 and Kyle promptly gagged away the game with two stupid calls on 3rd and 4th downs.
Watching Bill Walsh all those years saw him do things like play action on 3rd and 1. Misdirection. Not run up the middle. A play that we run so fucking badly that it fails prolly 85% of the time. So, naturally, Kyle goes for the bad play. THEn to make shit worse, he runs a play very much like the Raider game the other day, and had 2 WRs run the same route, and Jimmy naturally threw it into the crowd. Game over.
No up-tempo. No no-huddle. Just a plodding slow-ass drive to essentially end the game for us. Even if we DO score the TD.
And Jimmy? Mr. I-never-set-my-feet-for-ANY-fucking-throw-in-my life? His basic throwing stance is one where both feet are pointing to the end zone parallel to the goal line and he arms it somewhere. Flat-footed and no leg drive. Say the line sucks. Whatever. Burrow plays behind the worst line in the NFL and still gets passes off that go more than 5 yards and DON’T clang off WRs hands becuase they are too high/off target.
The ONE FUCKING TIME he hits a WR on a deep route, Dennis Weaver McCloud drops it. And of course Dean Woermer had to follow suit. And a BS holding call. 3 plays that equalled about 120 yards of passing.
I’m so fucking tired of this shit over and over and over. This looks like a 7-9 team right now. Right when I feel good about this team, they lay a stinking turd on the plastic grass. Maybe playing on real grass will give them some hope. Right. And I have acreage on Mars to sell you.
What the hell. I moved this from the last thread. Never seen footage of the Burritos at Altamont. One of my older sisters was there.
Thanks for reminding me that I like them.
Yeah, there’s so many bands that I forget to listen to. Always thought it was cool Frank put Jimi on that cover.
That song reminds me of 5 to 1.
You walk across the floor with a flower in your hand
Trying to tell me no one understands
Trade in your hours for a handful of dimes.
one of my favoritie Doors songs
Don’t know if Bosa’s coming back this week will make much difference but maybe he can rattle Mahomes some. Pretty sure we lose this one.
Most of the times I think we will win, we lose.
Most of the time sI think we will lose, we win.
I have no fucking clue.
This team is Jimmy personified.
Inconsistent as fuck. It is enough to drive me crazy.
Having C Ward back is nearly as important. Mahomes has been struggling hitting deep passes. And of course, we need to keep the LBs up close to negate the scrambles.
We did that for 3 quarters vs Fields, Wilson, and Mariota, but let them off the hook late in all those losses. 3rd down scrambles killed the defense because they wimped out and dropped the LBs into medium coverage.
And Hufanga needs to beat the shit out of Kelce.
WTF? The 49ers completed a trade for Christian McCaffery. Hopefully he plays some.
CMC deal is a 2nd rd pick 2023 a 4th rd pick in 2024 and RB Tyrion Davis-Price
No TDP just more draft picks.They can take next years draft off like when Ditka drafter Ricky Williams.Atleast they didn’t give up that haul, and they kept him away from the Rams who are still stuck with malcontent Akers I believe?
Didn’t see that one coming. I really wanted to get him when he went in the draft. I think we got DeFo that year so we did pretty good anyway. I quit drafting him in FF leagues he’s an injury away from the IR. I don’t like this deal. How are we gonna build a team when we trade all our 1st and 2nd round picks.
A lot of Draft picks for a mid 20s RB who missed a lot of games.
4 Picks ain’t corn flakes.
Thought for sure a CB deal would be coming instead.
Let’s hope he makes a difference.
CMC definitely qualifies to be a 49er with his injury history.
No shit. Sure, McCaffrey’s versatile and all that, but will it cure Shanahan of being a shitty play caller?
Our offensive guru has us 18th in yards, 20th in scoring, and 23rd in first downs.
I guess they noticed their track record with first and second round picks. McCaffrey’s issue coming into the league is the same now. Durability.
I will pose the question of CMC playing on the Carolina turf which creates a lot of injuries. We will have to wait and see to know for sure.
Yeah, that’s definitely a thing, Bergs. I just wish the owners around the league would put grass in their stadiums. Especially the fucking outdoor ones.
