Who the fuck are we? We are a team with a new toy. One that will play tomorrow in some form or fashion. The excitement in getting McCaffery will hopefully get this offense out of 2nd gear. But this offense goes as well as Jimmy G directs it, and Kyle Shanahan calls it. Turn the ball over a couple times and we lose. It’s automatic. Call stupid fucking plays in crunch time, and we lose. Wilson’s fumbles haven’t helped, and I’m sure this played into the decision to GET CMC, but here we are. An offensive team that is struggling wildly on offense. 23rd in 1st downs is catastrophic.
We are also a team with some injured players coming back. Good news is Williams, Bosa, C Ward, McGlinchey, and Ebukam are all off the injury report. Bad news? C ward is questionable, but he was practicing. Talanoa Hufanga is questionable as well, but he’s on the concussion protocol. If he passes the last test he’ll play.
Will we be better with all these players coming back? I hope so. I’m at a loss again as to who we are and what we can do. KC isn’t as strong as they were but they aren’t slouches. They can score, but their defense is not so good. They give up 25 points a game. But they score 30 a game.
Our problem? We only score 20 a game. We once again will live and die by Shanahan’s play calling and Jimmy’s QB play. The D should hold up provided Bosa and Ward are (hopefully fully) back, and the O comes through. We need to score early and keep the pressure on all game. Something this team and this coaching staff struggles with.
Is this the end of the beginning or the beginning of the end?
I have no goddamn clue at this point. I just can’t WAIT to see all the fucking ‘highlights’ from the Super Bowl from a couple years ago. FUUUUUUUUUCK!
