Mission Accomplished

Things got a bit sweaty in the fourth quarter Sunday, but the 49ers limped out of St. Louis with a 34-27 victory, securing the number two seed in the playoffs, and the much needed week off that goes with this lofty status. Lofty and the 49ers have not dated for many years, so well done, lads. Congratulations on one hellava season!

The next 49er game will be January 14 at Candlestick, most likely against the New Orleans Saints. The Saints got this year off to a frightening start by manhandling the 49ers in the first pre-season game back in August. Jim Harbaugh and Co. will have two weeks to prepare for this game, so perhaps we’ll see a vastly different result this time around. If not, hello offseason.

In the meantime, the blogopolis has two weeks to savor rooting for a Champion. This time of year has been anything but pleasant in the past eight years. Four head coaches have been hired and fired since our last championship team. Half the stiffs in civilization have trotted through here with their feeble talents and short lived careers.

The Wild Card round this coming weekend should be fun. Actually, the fun started Sunday night when the overrated Cowboys were eliminated rather handily by the Giants. Next up for a ticket home are the Lions, Broncos, Bengals, and probably the Falcons. Falcons vs Giants will give us an indication of which wild card team is going to be dangerous this year. My guess is the Giants, who are getting healthy at the right time. And Eli Manning is playing some serious QB these days. The younger Manning boasted he was elite when the year began and he is proving it.

The Raiders were also laughed into the offseason Sunday. Afterward, their coach Hue Jackson went on a tirade about how pissed off at his team he was. He did not single out QB Carson “13 tds and 16 ints” Palmer. The guy Hue mortgaged the future for. Al might be gone, but the Raiders crumble forward. Joining the Raiders in the flat tire division were the Fat Tire Ryan brothers, both boasting their way into the dumpster.

Alex Smith closed out the season as the 9th rated QB in the league, with 17 tds and 5 ints, a 90.7 QBR, and 160 straight passes without an interception — the second longest streak in 49er history, behind only Steve Young in 1993. Not too shabby for a guy who could never be a starting QB in the NFL, or lead his team to the playoffs. At least he still can’t win a playoff game, can he?

Del Mar Dennis finished the year at 4-12, even failing to jinx the 49ers in their last game by predicting victory for the first time this year. Worse than all this, Del Mar’s heart throb Tony Romo once again failed at all the wrong moments and dragged his team into the waste bin of yet another failed season. Is there a pattern here?

The 49ers’ success this year sent many long time trolls scurrying from the blogs and into the sewers from whence they came. We will not miss them. So long, dipwads! There’s always Oakland!

Three cheers for the 2011 SF 49ers! Is their more glory to come? Stay tuned.

    Rex Ryan explaining his guarantee the Jets would make the Super Bowl. The two most hyped and also most disappointing teams happen to wear green. Remember back in August when they were both spending the big bucks signing all the big name FAs? Both teams are in turmoil and are a mess.
    Jets are questioning their QB who happens to be another U$C product.

    Rex should do standup comedy

    The Niners Playoff Game is scheduled for Sat Jan 14 1:30PM.

    Interesting fact that Raiduhs gave CB Stanford Routt the huge contract and he was flagged for
    17 penalties this season with majority of them pass interference. Shutdown corner?

  3. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    49ers outscored the Dallas Romos this year 380-369. Smith or Romo? Easy decision, Smith!

  4. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Goldson committed another bonehead personal foul penalty on the PAT making an onside kick for the Rams easy to commit to.
    He signed a bargain one year contract because nobody else would pay him. With a Safety I expect him to also be instinctive and smart not just a big hitter. Goldson is neither and doesn’t make enough saving plays to suit me. Our corners are often by themselves deep downfield with our FS not in the picture.
    The play that drove me crazy was when Goldson got caught in “no man’s land” on a blitz. He was about 10 yards off the line when he started his blitz and never made it to the QB because they snapped it before he was in position on a quick count.
    Goldson has his supporters but I think Niners can do better both with quality considering what Goldson will demand money wise.

    Anyone see Matt Flynn’s day yesterday? I know, I know what all the Smith symps will say… look at the system, look at the wide receivers. Blah, puke, vomit. How ’bout look at Flynn’s deep ball? How ’bout look at Flynn’s vision and ability to scan the field. By my estimation, there are five teams in the NFL who need a quarterback. Actually, there are a lot more than that, but some are only one or two years into an investment in a bad quarterback, still haven’t correctly evaluated him yet, or they have, are stuck and just have to sell him to the fan base. Any of this sound familiar? But the five teams about to address (or really should) the qb position are the Chiefs, Jets, 49ers, Redskins and Seahawks. And if they don’t, well, shame on them. Here are my geneous thoughts on the Matt Flynn derby I’m sure will be well received.
    ~
    Rex Ryan doesn’t have the ability to evaluate Sanchez or handle a switch/ controversy properly. Rex will pull a Nolan / Singletary and go down with his qb. Can’t wait.
    ~
    I could see the Seahawks going after Matt Flynn. Pete Carroll likes losing to Jim Harbaugh about as much as Bullit likes AlbertEinstinkle’s approach to blogging. Carroll is ultra competitive, like Harbaugh, and Carroll moves fast. Tavaris Jackson isn’t the answer. I love Charlie Whitehurst, but Pete treats him like chopped liver. I’d really love to see Pete dump Charlie and have Harbaugh pull Charlie off the scrap heap and beat Pete with his discards. But I digress. I could see Pete making a play for Flynn.
    ~
    The Redskins need a quarterback. I was disappointed in Shanny for not drafting Andy Dalton, but Shanny had other issues on that team he’s since sorted out. Some coaches, like Gruden, prefer older veteran quarterbacks. I think Shanny likes developing younger qbs. Flynn’s still young, but I don’t think the Redskins go after Flynn. I think Shanny likes the glory of finding a guy, drafting him and developing him.
    ~
    Scott Pioli’s Chiefs might have hit their high water mark when Charlie Weis was in town. Now Haley is gone and they need a quaterback. I don’t think the Chiefs can win much with Matt Cassel, but I think it’s asking too much of Pioli to find a new head coach, get some of his stars back healthy, and also change the quarterback. He should, though. What difference does it make if Pioli hires Gruden’s little brother away from the Bengals as the head coach and then plugs in Matt Flynn? I’m betting Matt Cassel is the qb next year, but it’s a mistake if he is.
    ~
    49ers: Alex Smith sucks my ass. I think that just about covers it.

    Rams also just let their GM Devaney go. They’re cleaning house
    and you have to wonder if Jeff Fisher is at top of their wish list. One things for certain, this doesn’t help Bradford who will have his 3rd OC in 3 years.
    Sound familar???

    Hue Jackson had a meltdown yesterday opting not to go shake hands midfield postgame with Norv Turner. His reasoning was he was in a pissed move. He also stated
    that he was looking for more power
    in making decisions for the Raiduhs. This coming from a coach that vows to cutdown on the penalties and failed miserably.
    Perhaps he attributes this to the
    anti-Raiduh conspiracy theory.

  18. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Here’s an interesting one for the cheap seats. I think Eli Manning has a lot of Joe Montana in him. Think about it. Joe Montana was kind of a goober. I love Joe. Greatest quarterback of all time. But Joe was a goober, and what was his nickname? Joe Cool. Why? I think Joe had that kind of dorky, slow personality, with also the ability to pull pranks and joke light heartedly. Joe never got rattled. This is what made Joe cool. He never yelled at a receiver the way we saw Tom Brady in the last Super Bowl Brady lost.
    ~
    Eli Manning is kind of the same way. Eli Manning is kind of a dork. He can joke around. But he ‘s also clutch, like Joe. I could careless about all the Eli haters. It is what it is. New York now is a different beast than San Francisco in the late ’70s. But think about it. Mentality and personality-wise, I think Eli and Joe are very similar, and that mental makeup is what makes a quarterback successful – especially late in the 4th quarter. I know Eli isn’t as good as Joe, and he won’t have the same legacy, but there’s some Montana in Eli. Younger brother could be the better Manning.

  19. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Anybody watching WR Alshon Jeffrey of SC? He is schooling a very good CB from Nebraska named Dennard.

  20. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Irsay is canning everyone in Indianapolis. Wow.

  21. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    I’ll be interested to see what Jeffrey runs in the 40 at the combine. He’s almost a tight end like Finley in Green Bay.
    ~
    It’s the right move to can Caldwell now. I think Fisher lands in Indy.

  22. bigtimNo Gravatar says:

    coaches dropping like fly’s in the NFL its ax day the day after the season ends, round and round they go the coaching rotation in the NFL continues.
    Spag is rumored to be going to the Eagles which makes perfect sense since he is a defensive coach at heart.
    Morris was just too soft on his players,and that record showed it too bad he had a personality unlike the stone faced coach in Indy.
    speaking of Indy they won the Luck sweepstakes now the big decision do you take the Harbaugh prodigy or trade away the next biggest QB coming out for much needed draft pics to build up a depleted and ageing team.
    then there’s the Rams and RGIII do they dump Sammy for the new kid on the block or trade down for some much needed help,it will be interesting to see where that goes.
    enough of, as the NFL turns, I as a fan am so glad to see the 9ers return to there rightful place in the playoffs.
    at this point they have exceed expectations with all the supposed experts predicting hard times for our great team, its great to see Harbaugh and Co. cram it up there rears,and expose the talking heads for what they are,noise makers.
    now its time for ice baths and rehabilitation to get the team back to full strength,regardless of who comes to town on the 1-14 its gonna be a dog fight at the stick.
    god that sounds fun doesn’t it

  23. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Peter King of SI is reporting that Dolphins are going to interview Fangio for their vacant Head Coaching job. And so it begins…

  24. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I think losing Fangio would be a big loss for us.

  25. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    If Fangio left, would we consider promoting Tomsula to DC? Or look outside?

    Fangio has done a hell of a job this year. I’d be sorry to see him go, but such is the fate of a winning team.

  26. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    After having passive D-coaches here for so long, Fangio’s aggressiveness is wonderful. Sure we give up a few big plays but look at the turnovers his schemes create.

  27. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Opponents for next year are out: we play Green Bay, New Orleans, and New England, all on the road, of course. A late Xmas frak-you from our buddies at the NFL.

  28. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    That looks like a pretty easy schedule. Depends on time between games. Niners ain’t no secret anymore, so they’ll play more nationally televised games which always messes with practice time between games. We all saw the havoc that can bring in the Baltimore game. Playing the AFC East with the Dolphins, Bills and soon to be lost Jets is pretty nice. Could be another 13-3 season. Cards and ‘Hawks are getting better, but not enough to scare … yet. Baalke better get used to drafting late in rounds. The ability of the GM to find late round gold is everything if a team wants to stay on top. I think Polian was dumped because he lost his edge. Roman rumored for the Penn State job. If Fangio goes, hope Spags is still around, but he’s an East coast guy at heart.

  29. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Colts fired the Polians as their management team but are “evasluating” Caldwell.
    The Genius said Caldwell was canned. Fisher is now interviewing
    with the Rams and Dolphins and if the Colts wanted him they would hettison Caldwell. Irsay talking to him and evaluating is code he will survive, otherwise just clean house and get rid of everyone.

  30. bigtimNo Gravatar says:

    didn’t the Dolphins interview Harbaugh as well,is that information coming out of the fishes org. because there well known for BS as much as the headache that serves as ownership for that team.
    of course when team is successful the other looser’s want to pick there bones,with that known does Fangio have HC aspirations?
    my impression is he was a D-coordinator at heart maybe he just didn’t get the opportunity for the top position,we shall see how loyal he is to Harbaugh and the team and what sort of money he is going to get from the niners to stay.
    does Roman really want to go to the boys nest in Penn, that’s another mess that doesn’t seem all that appealing since the dust hasn’t even settled on the Sandusky affair, and the legacy of the old man is still fresh in every ones mind in Happy Valley

  31. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Demoff in StL is likely gonna snag Fischer as Jeff is represented by a Demoff.
     
    Plenty of entertainment to follow in the Post Season game of Musical Chairs. Let’s see how ‘tight’ the Harbaugh Staff is once the offers start rolling.
     
    Penn State is not the glamorous gig it once was for obvious reasons but, you could probably name your price just like the Dolphins’ gig.

  32. bigtimNo Gravatar says:

    if fangio bails then I wouldn’t mind seeing Jimmy Tomsula the porn king get a shot at the top spot, he has earned at least a look at the d-cord job and having worked with Vic and the defensive players he gets allot of respect in the building,if he was offered the position my guess is he would stay,his wife likes living in the bay area and that always has weight when making a call for a job

  33. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Let’s hope Fangio enjoys the comfort of the DC position more than taking on the HC duties elsewhere.
     
    It’s the nature of the beast in the NFL, make the Playoffs and everyone notices your accomplishments.
     
    I’m more concerned with improving our Offensive deficiencies and staying in contention going forward. Harbaugh and Baalke appear to have a great chemistry together, hope to see it continue to improve the Roster.

  34. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    It appears as though Harbaugh has a lot of love for the surprise plays too. He’s obviously capable of springing some ‘Fly’ plays with the speedsters on the Roster too I’d imagine.
     
    If we face the Saints we’ll have our hands full defending Brees but, I’m glad to have the Playoff shot and a Coach who plays to WIN.

  35. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    Hey, I don’t give a whit about 2012. Well, not NEXT season, anyway.

    We’re looking at New Orleans as the probable opponent in 2 weeks in A PLAYOFF game. Then, the Green Bay Packers on the frozen tundra!

    I’m going to root like hell for Alex. I’ve never considered him a bad playoff QB; I’m funny that way, I don’t judge QBs on playoff appearances they’ve never had – no, not even Alex. Nobody thought Eli could pull it off, either, until a two month hot streak showed what he was made of.

    (OK, I don’t care about the Broncs either, but that’s all you get on the radio here. John Elway, after Tebow’s streak reached 7-1, said something along the lines of: “I guess he’s OK.” If the Broncs offense gets steamrolled by the Steelers, count them in the Peyton/Luck fiesta.)

  36. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    I wonder how far the 49ers would go in the playoffs if they had Matt Flynn as their starting quarterback instead of Alex Smith?

    ~ With Alex Smith, we’re one and done ~

  37. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Never thought I’d see Alex win double digit games either.
    So…. I’m down with giving him the benefit of the doubt in his 1st Playoff appearance.
     
    He’s got more stones than Promo and, a supporting cast that’s focused on the prize.

  38. bigtimNo Gravatar says:

    stinky you seem to have a Crystal ball making predictions and all, what say you at the beginning of the year when Harbaugh brought him back,were you on the 5-11 band wagon cheering for the epic fail my guess was a big fat yes!!!.
    because there sure were not allot of 13-3 people out there even I thought they wouldn’t do better than 10-6
    so what happens when Smith wins a Superbowl, or even heaven forbid wins the MVP, and gets signed to a big multi year deal.
    Flynn has one good game with Rogers receivers and every one is riding his sack as the next best thing,ask Kevin Kolb how that one trick pony show in Arizona is working out,oh cant because he is still drooling on his self with his 3rd concussion Flynn is the next in line for that award

  39. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    With his success in just 2 games Flynn is going to command a Kolb like contract.
    Every team that goes this route hopes they find a Brett Favre or a Matt Schaub.
    Most likely they get Steve Bono,Elvis Grbac, Kolb, Scott Mitchell, Matt Cassell, Tavaris Jackson, Jason Campbell or Ryan Fitzpatrick.
    You end up paying big bucks for a journeyman QB who’s a placeholder while you look for that elusive
    franchise QB.
    I honestly believe guys like Flynn and Kolb do well in the short term because there’s little tape on them and it’s hard to gameplan. Once you have 3 or four games footage you notice tendencies and you can exploit their weaknesses.
    Looking at Ariz they paid big money to Kolb and he can’t stay on the field. Skelton has performed and taken them to wins and looks like Kolb might be a high proced backup again.
    Flynn will ask for too much money
    for a huy who’s thrown 132 career passes has 9TDs but also has 5 Ints and been sacked 13 times.

  40. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Stinky here… I do have a crystal ball. I was one of the first people to say, “Jim Harbaugh’s 49ers are going to be a lot better than people think.” I was leading the optimistic charge. I felt week 17 the 49ers would be playing for the division crown. Not totally accurate, but I don’t have to hide in shame either.
    Regarding Alex Smith winning a Super Bowl, or him winning the MVP, I’ll tell you what… if Alex Smith ever wins a Super Bowl, or he ever, EVER wins the MVP, I’ll stop blogging entirely for the rest of my life. I’ll walk away from blogging forever. Know why? ‘Cause him winning everything would be so against everything I believe, I’d have to realize all my ideas and beliefs were dead wrong and that I offered nothing to the blog world of value. However, now let’s get real for a second…. I’m not in much danger of never blogging again. Alex Smith will never win a Super Bowl because for my money, Trent Dilfer was a better quarterback and the game manager is deader than Elvis in today’s NFL (because of the rule changes).
    .
    Kevin Kolb makes for a failed analogy to Matt Flynn because Ken Whizzerhurtz is no Jim Harbaugh. Maybe Andy Reid propped-up Kolb because Reid’s an offensive guru. Maybe Kolb is failing because their isn’t much else in Arizona other than Fitzgerald – no coaches, no players, no line. But in San Francisco, Kolb could have success because Jim Harbaugh knows how to coach quarterbacks. Rumor has it, he once played the position once, bigtim. I don’t know if you knew that. I don’t understand how you come to the conclusion Flynn will get concussions like Kolb. That’s kind of a reach.

  41. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit –
    “I honestly believe guys like Flynn and Kolb do well in the short term because there’s little tape on them and it’s hard to gameplan. Once you have 3 or four games footage you notice tendencies and you can exploit their weaknesses.”

    First of all, Kolb’s not having any short term success right now. Secondly, you can’t gameplan for dimes. When a quarterback delivers a well thrown ball over a receiver’s shoulder into a tight window, there’s no remedy for that. You can’t defense that. To evaluate Flynn, you have to watch the guy’s accuracy. Flynn has started only two games, but in both games he threw dimes. In Philly, Kolb had issues. But I still believe Harbaugh could have gotten more out of Kolb than Whizzerhurtz.

    I think Flynn will command something like 5 million per year. I’m not certain, but I think that’s his market. With Kaep and Tolzien on the bench, with rookie salaries, and Alex’s value somewhere around 5 million himself, the 49ers could afford to carry four quarterbacks and pay all of them because Alex Smith’s salary is so low (rightly). Why not bring in Flynn? Is it because you’re afraid your precious would be exposed as a terrible quarterback? Don’t you, like Harbaugh, want to find ways to make your football team better?

  42. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    We’ll miss you Albert. Some anyway. A few. More than a couple. Anyone? Will you send us postcards from the ledge?
     
    It’s pretty easy to predict a QB will never win a SB. Few ever do. There’s only one each year. Which is all Manning has in twelve years of trying. To say Trent Dilfer is better than anyone, however, is enough reason for you to quit blogging. Turn in your mouth. No need to wait for Alex to hold up that Lombardi Trophy.

  43. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Trent Dilfer is Joe Montana compared to Alex Smith.
    ~
    Very few of the good quarterbacks go an entire career without winning a Super Bowl. Marino. There are others. Most of the good ones win a Super Bowl. Alex Smith isn’t good, therefore he’ll never win a Super Bowl.
    ~
    And I need to make one correction…. Matt Flynn’s value is more than 5 million per year. It’s probably 9 to 11 million, but he won’t get Kolb money (probably because of what’s happening to Kolb right now).

  44. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Spitty

    You are an ignoramus. You pretend to be a know it all yet you know very little.
    Kolb has a 6 year 65 million dollar deal. You said Flynn won’t get Kolb money, just 9-11 million a year. You flunked math didn’t you?

  45. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Kolb gets about 12 million per year with incentives that he’s not reaching.

    I’d like to hear from everyone on this Matt Flynn subject because anyone who doesn’t want Matt Flynn on the team simply doesn’t want to see the 49ers get better at the quarterback position. The 49ers pay their quarterback backup money. Smith gets about 4 million a year in a quarterback driven league. The market speaks for itself. Alex Smith is a backup. If you don’t want the quarterback position improved, you’re protecting a player based on emotional attachment.

  46. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Spitty

    You keep bragging incessantly how all your Nostradamus predictions were spoton.
    That’s to be expected from a lying hater troll.
    How do you prove it without revealing you’re a lying hating troll? Quite the conumdrum?
    Look this up in the V playbook because he also likes to paint himself into corners.

  47. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Spitty

    6 years for 65 mil is what Kolb signed for. Not even 11 mil a year. Now you do the old flip flop and back pedal? I have reason to call you pinata boy.
    Batter up!!! Too easy.

  48. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    When anticipating Matt Flynn’s value the interesting thing is you need to consider the cap space of the teams with a qb need. If for instance, the 49ers, Chiefs, Redskins, Seahawks and Jets all had a lot of cap space, and all wanted Flynn, Flynn’s market value could get over ten million a year. If they don’t have the space, Flynn’s market will come down to somewhere between 7-9 a year.

  49. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    If the 49ers could get Flynn for 7 million a year (which, the more I’m looking at this, the more I think that’s his value), and they coupled that with Alex Smith’s 4 million a year (that’s Smith’s value), that’s 11 million a year for those guys. That’s about what you pay for a franchise quarterback. A good one at least. Flynn starts at 7 million a year, Alex backs him up at 4 million a year. I’m okay with that….

  50. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Spitty

    Sorry dude but your link is speculation saying he was going to sign. My info is from Andrew Brandt of NFL network and an article in Forbes.

    “4. Kevin Kolb: Arizona traded Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round pick before rewarding Kolb with a six-year $65 million contract with $21.5 million guaranteed, this for a quarterback with a limited playing sample. I do understand that it is early to evaluate that deal, but for a player upon whom the team has staked its future on, Kolb has yet to prove his worth even when healthy.”

    http://www.forbes.com/sites/sportsmoney/2011/12/23/making-a-list-best-and-worst-2011-nfl-contracts/3/

    Like I said pinata boy, what do you know?

  51. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Hate to rouse you from that second joint stupor, Albert, but Smith signed a one year trial deal. When you go 13-3, you get a raise and a multi-year deal. Harbaugh doesn’t need to overpay for speculative talent. He can develop it on his own.

  52. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit –
    Whatever. Your link doesn’t work, and really, I don’t care because it’s the guaranteed money. 21.5 million guaranteed – two year trial, see how you do. You don’t cut the mustard in two years, we cut you. Two years at 21.5 is 10.75. That’s Kolb’s market value RIGHT NOW. That’s way too much for Kolb. There were warning signs Kolb wasn’t worth it. He lost his starting job to Vick, and he sucked in the Green Bay game at the start of the year. He also had concussion issues. The Cardinals made a bad deal, but they went after a quarterback. You can’t fault ’em for that. And you can’t paint Flynn with the same Kolb brush just because you have a man crush on Alex Smith.

  53. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebers – Sando has recently written an interesting piece on Alex Smith’s next contract. Sando has said that Smith will want more than 4 or 5 million a year but he won’t get it. Sando has said (or written) the 49ers know there isn’t a demand for Alex Smith and they could let him hit the free agent market and Smith wouldn’t get a pay raise. Markets are ultimately determined by bidding, not the play on the field. Smith will be offered around 4 or 5 million a year by the 49ers – take it or leave it. Sando has written, “Smith should take it.” Why? Because it’s Smith’s best chance to start, and because he won’t have any success else where.

  54. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Smith is highly regarded by his teammates and his coach. If he signs an insulting offer, it sends the wrong message to the team. They’ll make him a fair offer. Sando’s FOS and a well known Smith disser.

  55. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    “Smith is highly regarded by his teammates and his coach.” Really? He got 4 million from this coaching staff after they declared, “We can win with Alex Smith.” That’s pretty high regard. Let’s see what the 49ers offer after Alex Smith goes one and done in the playoffs…. losing by two touchdowns to the Saints at home. That grass better be long…

  56. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Losing to the Saints would not be a disgrace for any team in the league. They’re a great team. Smith is 13-3. That’s the difference between now and last year.

  57. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Let’s just see what the 49ers offer Smith, and when they offer it to him. If they wait for free agency to start and they court other qbs like Matt Flynn, it’s telling. I believe Smith will get another 4-5 million dollar per year offer from the 49ers because that’s backup money – Smith’s ultimate value. What say you, Skeebers? You think Smith gets 6, 7, or 8 per year?

  58. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Yes.

  59. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Lol. Which one? You think Smith gets 8 million a year to miss all those passes? Is that what you’re saying? 8 million?

  60. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    The contract Smith gets is based on this year. Not on anything else. The team isn’t going to play hard-ball with Smith. He’ll get something like a 3/$25 or 4/$28 mill deal.
    .
    This team needs WRs in a big way. THey need a #1 WR. A speed guy.
    .
    Here’s a list of 2012 FA WRs:
    .
    1. Mike Wallace, PIT (Restricted)
    2. Vincent Jackson, SD
    3. Dwayne Bowe, KC
    4. Wes Welker, NE
    5. DeSean Jackson, PHI
    6. Stevie Johnson, BUF
    7. Marques Colston, NO
    8. Pierre Garcon, IND
    9. Reggie Wayne, IND
    10. Brandon Lloyd, STL
    .
    1, 2, 3, 4, 7, and 8 are too good to be let go by their current teams. 9 is old, and Lloyd, well, been there, done that. No thanks. That leaves DSJ and Stevie Nutjob. Both considered prima donnas of the highest order. Stevie? Pass. He’s all about getting his ass on ESPN. I think DSJ would be a great addition, and would do fine under a guy like Harbaugh.
    .
    I mean, put it this way. Ginn or DSJ? No contest.

  61. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    He’ll get starter money. I’m no contract or dollar amount expert. He’ll be happy and so will the team.

  62. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    So Unca and Skeebers think 7-8 million a year, and Smith is the starting quarterback next year. Ok. Got it.

  63. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-game-highlights/09000d5d8259d13b/WK-17-Matt-Flynn-highlights

    So Alex Smith is worth 8 million a year (according to Skeebers and Unca), and Flynn is probably worth the same amount (but he’ll actually get it). But nobody thinks the 49ers should go after Flynn based on the argument that GB has better receivers. But if you look at this highlight, you’ll see Flynn time after time made accurate deep passes – something Smith can never do. Pay one guy 8 million to manage (Smith), or pay one guy 8 million to throw touchdowns. I’ll take Flynn, thank you.

  64. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    “Moron, hater, troll…” lol. hurtful.

    I don’t know if these numbers are right, but just got ’em off the internet. The numbers don’t reflect things like the 49ers dumping Braylon.

    Remaining cap space for teams who should have interest in Flynn.

    KC – 34 million under
    Seattle – 39 million under
    SF – 18 million under
    Washington – 10 million under
    Jets – 1.2 million under

    I don’t think Washington can afford to go after Flynn. The Jets are stuck. I think it’s between the Chiefs, Seattle and 49ers. I know these numbers will fluctuate, but it’s a start.

  65. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Spitty

    To further prove how stupid and clueless you are. Kolb and Aaron Rodgers have almost the same contract money wise.
    Aaaron Rodgers contract
    “10/31/2008: Signed a six-year, $65 million contract. The deal contains $20 million guaranteed, including $12.9 million in the first year and a $7.42 million guaranteed roster bonus in the second. Annual $500K workout bonuses are available in years two through six. Annual $500K roster bonuses are available in years three through through six. 2011: $7.25 million, 2012: $8 million, 2013: $9.25 million, 2014: $10.5 million, 2015: Free Agent”
    If Packers frnachise Flynn and try to trade him they would be offering him $14.5 mil for the tag and more than Rodgers just to recoup some value for Flynn.

    There is no reason to talk about this because it won’t happen. Everyone knows that Flynn is this year’s Nnamdhi and will cost some team dearly.

    Only a fool like yourself would dwell on this because you hate Smith so much.

  66. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Spitty

    Salary cap numbers change every year after the Super Bowl.
    Rach season has a “League Year”
    and that’s when you know what you have.
    Only a moron such as yourself would use this year’s numbers after the trading deadline is over. Flynn doesn’t become a unrestricted free agent until March.
    Sorry to show you up in front of everyone but like I said you are a moron hater troll, no question about it.
    I also see Spittynostradamus is unable to prove his so called predictions where he is 100% correct.

  67. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Three other teams who could be interested in Matt Flynn:
    Miami -13 million under
    Cleveland – 33 million under
    Baltimore – 5 million under

    What if the Saints kick the hell outta the Niners, then beat the Ravens in the Super Bowl.

    “Hey Jim? This is John. I think we both need a quarterback. What do you think?”

    Two other noteables – Oakland 10 million over, and the Bucs were 59.2 million under. Yeah, let’s put the blame on Morris. Jesus.

    * This was based off an article published the first of August, 2011. Only truly gifted simpletons can’t see its a measuring stick to judge next year’s free agent buyers.

  68. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Apparently Spitty is so full of himself with his head lodged far up his poop chute.
    There is no reasoning nor educating a proven moron like this.

  69. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Hey Bullit,
    Any chance the 49ers bench Smith in the playoff game against the Saints and just run the wildcat the entire time?

  70. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Jim Harbaugh in today’s press conference said he wants Alex Smith back……. to run the practice squad.

  71. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Mike Martz has resigned in Chicago.

  72. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Typical Spitty knowitall statement from yesterday.
    Jeff Fisher will land in Indy.
    One slight problem. Like Chicago
    the Colts canned the GM and kept the coach.
    Details, details from a proven moron known as Spitty.

  73. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Caldwell will be gone. The new GM will have a say in who coaches that team going forward. Maybe Fisher wants a certain GM. You never know. It’s too early to tell.

  74. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    John Clayton of ESPN has just reported that San Diego is keeping their GM AJ Smith and Norv Turner and Andy Reid will stay on as coach for the Eagles.
    He also said Jeff Fisher was given the royal treatment in Miami today and tomorrow he’ll interview with the Rams.
    Clayton says Fisher will decide by the end of the week if he wants the big bucks from Miami or
    Sam Bradford and the Rams.

  75. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Matt Flynn threw for 480 yards and 6 touchdowns, both Packer records. And 49er fans on this blog would rather have Alex Smith. Shame on all of you.

  76. barleyfreakNo Gravatar says:

    I’ve always thought Fisher a good coach. I hope he takes the MIA job.
     
    I don’t think too much about what they will or won’t pay Smith. But they will pay him. It will probably be a multi-year offer too. The only way I can see that they won’t (multi-year) is if he so severely craps all over himself in the playoffs.
     
    Regardless of what one thinks of Smith though, Harbaugh is not stupid and he will keep as much talent in the QB position on the roster he possibly can. Smith has somewhat miraculously avoided injury this year — that is really not par for the course and JH knows this. He will want a capable backup and players pushing each other in TC. Smith will be assumed starter, but anyone can play themselves out of the lineup. Anyone.
     
    As for Flynn, I won’t make excuses for a crappy D or great receivers. You throw 6 TDs and 480 yards, you’ve gotta have something. But he’s not going to land here. Ain’t gonna happen. Sorry Alberto.

  77. barleyfreakNo Gravatar says:

    BTW, kudos to you Skeebers for your 11-5 prediction. I admit I thought you were nuts when I read it. And with my 5-11 prediction I heartily ingest some crow.

  78. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Hold the phone, Barleyfreak. You just said, ” Harbaugh is not stupid and he will keep as much talent in the qb position on the roster he possibly can.” To do that, don’t you have to consider all possible potential quarterbacks available? Harbaugh and Baalke would be stupid NOT to talk to Matt Flynn. Flynn, Tolzien and Smith… in that order. Trade Kaep to the Argonauts.

  79. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    I’m not sure what will happen with Smith – I still have plenty of doubts about his ability to be successful in January – but I suspect we will not pursue Flynn. Unless Smith has a truly ugly game in the playoffs, I doubt the Yorks would spring for that kind of cash when they can sign the earnest, noble, and perhaps cheaper Smith. I think Jimbo will develop Kaep and Tolzien, and look for a cheaper second tier guy – a Carlos Rogers QB. My gut suggests Smith’s ultimate replacement may already be on the roster.
     
    My expectation is that we will see a sag or sophomore slump anyway next year. It’s pretty unusual for a team to post two consecutive seasons like the one we had. We’ll have some players to replace, some transitions ongoing, and will likely fall back into a battle with Seattle and Stl for the division, winner at around 10-6.

    Going forward, our ability to draft well at the bottom of the first round, and to develop offensive talent in the passing game, will determine whether this year was a flash in the pan, or the start of something lasting.
     
    I *DO* have a lot of respect for the job Harbaugh, Baalke, Fangio, Seely and others did this year. Very impressive. So there is reason to hope we are looking ahead to better times.
     
    Oh, and congrats to Skeebs. I still think you were drunk off your ass when you made that prediction, but it’s damned nice to have things work out even better.

  80. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    How did Kolb work out for AZ, Spit? Or your boy Whitehurst? Or McNabb, or Troy Smith, or all the other guys you wanted instead of Alex?

  81. barleyfreakNo Gravatar says:

    JH was involved in the drafting of CK. Of course, none of us know what he really thinks behind the scenes, having seen him in the limited TC and in practices/clipboard holding this year. But unless he thinks he’s krap, CK will will be here next year. Tolkien? Who knows.

  83. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    That’s the thing. Next year is a big year. Jim Harbaugh has a saying, “Get better, or get worse.. don’t stay the same” or some damn thing like that. Well, for the 49ers to get better and actually chase a Super Bowl, they need to dramatically and quickly upgrade the quarterback position. That’s the biggest weakness on the team. Super Bowls don’t wait around. Look at what’s happened to the Jets. The team peeked and dropped out of contention in a three year span. For the 49ers to avoid this fate after they get bounced by the Saints in their first game, Harbaugh needs to inject this team with some new life this off season. Matt Flynn is the answer. If the Yorks go cheap, next year won’t matter. There’s no way the 49ers compete for a Super Bowl with Alex Smith. None.

  84. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Barley – your thoughts about Kaep are fine, but you didn’t answer the question. If Harbaugh is dedicated and smart about stockpiling as much qb talent as possible, why wouldn’t he look at Matt Flynn?

  85. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Unca,
    You forgot Nate Davis.

  86. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    If Fisher accepts the Miami job it does 3 things.
    1)It keeps a good quality coach from being a thorn in the side of the Niners twice a season.
    2) It keeps Fangio here for now
    3) More proof that Spitty doesn’t know crap and just pulls stuff from his butt because he knoswitall. Spitty is up close and personal with Shanahan referring to him as “Shanny”.
    Pretty scary and creepy.

  87. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    One other reason why I think this blog is full of it. What’s the one thing Jim Harbaugh said at his introductory press conference about the quarterback position? He said the most important aspect of quarterback play is accuracy. Did he not? Am I wrong? Alex Smith isn’t an accurate quarterback. You know why? Rocky Bernard busted his rotator cuff. That affects accuracy. And nobody in their right mind can claim Alex Smith is a consistently accurate quarterback. Nobody.
    .
    I think Matt Flynn’s value on the open market is 8, and you guys are all suggesting Alex Smith will get 8 million. So, if it comes down to a choice, you have to go with the more accurate quarterback. Go look at both of Flynn’s games. He’s freakin’ accurate. Smith isn’t worth 8 million a year, but Flynn is worth paying 16 million guaranteed for two years to see what you got with him and avoid the Sophomore slump that Grump eluded to. You guys are full of it with your Alex Smith love.

  88. barleyfreakNo Gravatar says:

    I tend to go with the FO believing they have enough taletn in those three. Some of that is obviously a financial decision since as you and others pointed out, Flynn comes with a price that the FO may not want to pay. In JH’s dreams he somehow trades half the moon and pries Luck away from the Colts. But realistically, it is balance.
     
    What does he REALLY think about AS? I don’t know. He seems the consummate confidence bolsterer. He’ll praise players right and left whether he means it or not (see Edwards, Braylon).
     
    If you really think JH has a low opinion of AS, then we’ll see that play out as sure as shootin’ in the offseason. My guess is that his opinion is not as extreme as yours (that AS is a loser of epic proportions) but that he doesn’t see him as Joey Montana either. Somewhere in the middle. 
     
    Smith has done an excellent job protecting the football but IMO he is probably too conservative throwing it OB, or away or not taking some chances. If I had to predict the next year or two, I’d say that next year, we WILL have a soph slump and our playing it tight to the vest with a monster D, great ST, and a error free and score-just-enough O might not work as well. There is not much margin for error (or injuries, etc.) And JH will have to adjust the O quite likely to score more. If Smith shows he can do that, he’ll play. If he can’t, he won’t.

  89. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Barley,
    I’ve always respected you, and you won our fantasy football league, but dude…come on. Leverage.

    Jim Harbaugh has created quarterback free agency leverage in one year. This team is a great place for a young quarterback to come play. Put yourself in Matt Flynn’s shoes. You got a choice between Shanny, Pioli, or playing in Seattle. Snyder could dump Shanny any minute. Pioli doesn’t have a coach and Seattle just sucks to live unless you like rain.
    .
    In addition, Harbaugh is a young coach who will be here forever. He has a young, talented O line. He has a great running game and good defense. The 49ers have a new stadium. And Matt Flynn looks like just the guy to get all that. I mean, really, don’t you want your qb to get it? Don’t you want a guy who says, “I’ll take less to be a success and play for a stable organization?” If Flynn is who I think he is, Flynn will take less to play for Harbaugh. Money isn’t everything, and in addition, two contracts are better than the one contract Kolb just got. Flynn comes to the 49ers and he plays here for ten, twelve years, that’s three contracts. Smart qbs take less to find themselves in a good environment that’s stable. Baalke’s savy enough to take advantage of this.

  90. barleyfreakNo Gravatar says:

    Well it comes down to what JH thinks, right? What I think is irrelevant. I didn’t see Flynn play, but I’ve expressed doubts about Smith ad nauseam. I still have them, despite his best season. Do I want them to go after Flynn? Sure, it ain’t my money. Go get em Jed! Go and bring in a gazillion QBs.
     
    My point is that I don’t think that is what they’ll do. I think JH has a higher opinion of Smith than you. But that dude wants to win. And if Smith doesn’t bring it (or anyone else on the roster), moves will be made.
     

  91. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    THAT is exactly right. Jim Harbaugh is the most competitive dude I’ve seen in a long, long time. It’s exactly this reason that I don’t think Smith is given the starting job next year. It’s exactly this reason that I think Jim Harbaugh and Trent Baalke go out and kick the Matt Flynn tires. Time will tell. If the Saints blow the 49ers out, Smith is in trouble. If there is a Jesus, the score will be 65-0 Saints, and Harbaugh will blow twelve head gaskets. That’ll prevent the sophomore slump Grump was referring to? Did someone say refer?

  92. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Spitty

    Nobody but you gives a ratsass

    Davis, again?
     
    That reminds me: anyone know how similar the Fangio nomenclature and system is to what Manusky had in place? Obviously the flow of Fangio’s defensive play calling has seemed more effective this year, but I’m wondering if Fangio kept a lot of the basics from the old regime, which may be one reason why the defense got it’s legs under it so quickly this year.

  96. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Niners put 900 playoff tickets on sale for the general public and they were literally gone in 60 seconds.

    Of course the Raiduhs are denying anything has happened so stay tuned.

    If Roman goes and Fangio is courted etc, it’s all part of the process.
     
    For the time being, Harbaugh and Baalke appear to have what all the other Clubs are trying to obtain, a marriage between GM and HC.
     
    We in fact, may have set the standard for the prototype.
     
    For now, let’s enjoy the fact that we aren’t in that situation for the 1st time in a decade and, perhaps, pull for a Detroit upset.
    We might fair better with Atl or NY certainly but….

  100. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    I think, judging my his comments, Greg Roman wants the Penn State job bad and that his politicking for it saying, “It’s a job of a lifetime, (or for a lifetime), indicate he’d leave SF in a heartbeat. Penn State would be smart to hire Roman. Roman has the kind of personality that fits with coaching college athletes, and Roman has the political ability to clean up the image there, too. That would be a good fit for everyone but the Niners, but Harbaugh is essentially our offensive coordinator. Losing Fangio would be the one that hurts.

  101. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Albert,
    your logic is sound for improving the QB position.
    I’m in agreement for Alex for a simple reason. 2nd year, same system, reduced cost to the Cap.
    I know, he’s a Mgr not a thrower, not highly accurate, holds the ball too long and all that.
    However, he’s mobile, he’s durable and, he’s being marketed by Harbaugh as a great option.
    If Jim sells him well enough, he’s also got the potential to be TRADED.
     
    I’m all for improving this Team in any way we can and I’m quite sure Harbaugh and Baalke feel the same way.
    If you can keep Alex at a reasonable cost, give CKaep and Tolzien another year or so, Alex can be a valuable commodity. We need Cap space for other positions. I see Alex as a smart option for the immediate future.
     
    If he shitz the bed in the Playoffs, cost goes down. If he’s a hero and hits the Mkt all other options are still available, including Flynn.
    I think Alex realizes he’s got a great system fit right here and it’s Win/Win for both sides.

  102. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Eric Branch did a good piece on the 2012 SF Schedule on SFGate too.
    Our needs in the Secondary and Pass Rush depts are at the top of my list too.
     
    Goldson and Whitner are basically 2 SSs back there. We need a FS (Ball Hawk) with range and another DT/DE to put some heat on the QB.
     
    I’ll be more active with the Draft options later on down the road.
    For now, I’m jacked for the Playoffs.

  103. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Nj,
    I’ll tell you one thing right now – Colin Kaepernick will never be able to do what Matt Flynn just did yesterday. Colin Kaepernick will never have a career day like that no matter what system, what coach, what defense he goes up against. Matt Flynn is better than both Kaep or Smith will ever be.

  104. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    NJ,
    Goldson is having a curious year. The first 3 quarters were awesome. The last month has been terrible. Making the Pro Bowl will help another team sell Goldson as a huge free agent acquisition, regardless of Goldson’s lack of consistency this year. I think Goldson goes else where. I like Goldson, and would love to see him stay. But his angles have been so poor this last month I think he’s played himself onto another team considering his free agent status.

  105. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Albert I’ve always been lukewarm on Goldson for that very reason, horrible angles and less than stellar ball skills.
    I agree completely about his next Contract and see Dallas coming hard for both him and Carlos.
    Baalke will make the right call on personnel IMO, perhaps sweeten the offer to Carlos and Brooks. I see Parys gone and more Defense Drafted too.
    We can expect a DB and OLB/DE in the Draft too I’d suspect.
     
    Kaep is a pup, I hold no expectations for him or Tolzien until I see them play.
     
    I would kill for the pass rush rotation we saw from Baltimore on Thanksgiving playing for our Harbaugh.

  106. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I also figure to have seen the end of Shawntae as well. We have some depth back there to some extent now.
    I’d be curious to see whether we move someone to FS or Draft one.
    If memory serves me, Culliver has S experience at the College level and certainly has the wheels to play in the middle.

  107. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    That’s what I’m thinking, too. I think Goldson is gone and Culliver moves to FS. I think Whitner plays SS, Brock gets thrown into the rotation, and Holcomb gets a serious look at the dime corner position. I also agree that Baalke finds a way to keep Carlos Rogers and that Spencer is gone. Brown, Whitner, Culliver and Rogers isn’t a great secondary, but it isn’t bad either. The 49ers need a leader back there. I don’t think that’s Whitner or Rogers. Time will tell.

  108. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    We’ve clawed our way back into the Playoff conversation for this Season. At this point it’s all about Personnel decisions and player development. Look around the League. How many teams are as effed up as we were?
     
    I love living out here with the likes of NY Yankee fans who don’t appreciate what it takes to lose for long periods of time and to get back into the mix.
     
    I appreciate the efforts and quick success this regime has made in short order to turn this Team around.
    3 HCs and a GM change since ’05?
    Nothing short of amazing.

  109. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Harbaugh has that killer instinct too.
    He’s all about out working the competition and these guys have all jumped into his Camp.
     
    I’m floored that he showed Braylon the door too. I felt he was doing nothing but collecting a paycheck and keeping someone else off the Roster.
    Glad to see Swain and Hastings getting a look too. They believe in their guys and stay true to the Plan.
    I’m expecting to see Kaep or some other surprise player formation introduced (if needed) to stay in the game too. These guys have obviously been tinkering with lots of options during practice time.
     
    Let’s not forget this kid is still on the Roster too –
