Unseen Forces

The OTAs came and went last week, causing nary a ripple in the news stream of our lives. The 49ers have become a covert operation. We’re going to need a Deep Throat if we ever expect to get any intel out of these guys. Jim Harbaugh probably wishes all the games could be blacked out, too. But, his chance to coach the Raiders never materialized.

So, it should be an excruciating year for the Jimbo, as no less than five games this year will be prime time TV. Nearly one-third of the schedule cruelly exposed to the ENEMY. They’re out there. Everywhere. Peeping little fellows with notebooks, chalkboards, and iPads. STEALING OUR STUFF!

Hmmm. Or maybe the whole country takes one look at the nine guys bunched at the LOS and no WRs on the field and simply deduces: Frank Gore up the middle on this play. Maybe a little to the right, maybe a little to the left. But he’s gonna slam up in there.

I have to feel bad for the beat reporters. They’re used to having real data to stick into their daily posts. But nowadays, they’re just flogging trivial nonsense like we do here all the time. And the Outsider doesn’t even need Press Credentials. God forbid we get a report that AJ Jenkins was NOT WIDE OPEN during a practice!

So, not that it matters, but just to stay informed about what you’re missing, there’s a third three day OTA session beginning this very Monday. Good luck out there fellas, we’ll see you in Training Camp — maybe.

Let’s hope we don’t see them in a mug shot. So far this offseason, sixteen NFL players have been arrested for one thing or another. A couple of them cuffed more than once. Last year, there were 45 guys arrested, with Demarcus Dobbs and Aldon Smith among the detainees.

The Jets, naturally, had the most severe case of a disfunctional player — RB Mike Goodson. This big ol’ dude was signed this offseason to a 6.9 mil contract, then got arrested for gun and drug charges. In addition, he’s had multiple paternity lawsuits and been sued by a jewelry store for not paying a $56,000 bill, and been evicted twice for unpaid rent as well as failing to make car payments. You’re on a roll, Mike. Knock, knock. Anybody home in there? See you soon in Nowhereville. How did that 6.9 mil feel as it slipped through your fingers?

    Better not tell Del AJ wasn’t open in practice. The legend needs to last until the regular season when we get the chance to reassess.

  2. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Wasn’t it here on this very blog that I read we led the league in one and zero WR formations last year. That would be something to excite Nofear! He always seemed to love that Sardine Can Offense.

    Sad to hear that Jim Kelly will undergo treatment for cancer in his jaw. Prognosis for recovery is good. Buffalo would have won at least one Super Bowl if not for kicker choking.
    Also Levis has trademarked the following ““Field of Jeans” and “Win One for the Zipper”.

  4. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Barrows says the 49ers ripped off his ideas. He wants 4.9 mil compensation. The beat guys are getting edgy.

  5. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Now that we have a running QB, we can run up the middle even more!

  6. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Didn’t Barrows get his ideas from RT? If Matt gets any money he has to give some to RT!

  7. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I feel sorry for Ponder who has to run the SCO in Minihaha. A QB can’t look good running an offense that takes away his best opportunities to make decisions.

  8. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Crabtree tweeted he had his stitches removed this morning which is 12 days after his surgery.
    Niner Nation has mapped out more of his rehab:
    “Crabtree was likely wearing a temporary cast, which was removed so the stitches could be taken out. He will get some form of a hard cast and could be in that for three or four weeks, or potentially longer. At some point down the road, he’ll switch into a boot as the healing process continues. We probably won’t hear a whole lot of details over the next few weeks, and possibly longer.”

    Remember Blackfish went out to take a leak before the killing.
    I just saw this video on things to come

    http://tinyurl.com/ka549rl

    It was really getting cluttered with characters so they had to make some cuts just like football.

  10. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    If Fangio ever leaves on his own or not I hope the Niner braintrust promotes Tomsula.
    I think JT is the best assistant coach of the bunch and very deserving.
    Having Mangini cut in front of Tomsula would be a travesty.

  11. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Frankly, I don’t think the front office or Harbaugh care about who is more deserving. Mangini’s reason for coming here must have been with the caveat to succeed Fangio. Tomsula may not even want the job. Some people know their limitations. Look at Tom Rathman. He’s been an RB coach for 16 years.
    .
    Tomsula has proven to be the Niner head coach with the best winning %age, though. Not likey to be matched by anyone.

  12. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Del will be happy to hear we signed a 30 yr old back up safety. His name is Ventrone and has was signed for ST play.

  13. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    It is documented that in 2012 Jim Tomsula was blocked by the Niners from interviewing for the Bucs DC opening.
    Earlier this year the Aints wanted to interview Donatell and the Niners blocked that and said they would do the same if N.O. wanted to talk to Tomsula.
    From Jan 29 NO Times Picayune
    “Fangio said Tomsula should receive a shot at becoming a defensive coordinator as Tomsula is fully capable.

    “He’s a fiery guy,” Niners defensive lineman Justin Smith said. “He’s not just a rah-rah guy, there’s a lot more to him than that. He knows his stuff so you don’t have to yell and just jump around all the time. You can actually talk. He’ll give us some information, some input, how we’re going to shut it down and that’s what I appreciate about him.”

    Smith went a step further saying he’s shocked Tomsula isn’t a defensive coordinator in the NFL right now. Tomsula has been the defensive line coach in San Francisco since 2007.

    “The success this team has had, I think it’s pretty well known around the league how much he knows,” Smith said. “He was the interim head coach here (after Singletary was fired in 2010), but sometimes those things just take a little bit of time. That’s another one of the reasons it’d be nice to win the Super Bowl; players, staff included are trying to get cherry picks. We’ll try to keep this thing together as long as possible and hopefully we’ll bring this one home.”

    When told how Smith said he was surprised Tomsula hasn’t become a defensive coordinator in the NFL already, Tomsula said, “That’s all in the future, but I might have to slide Justin a couple of bucks for that. He’s my PR guy.”

    Chucky, Seems you really undervalue Tomsula and don’t think much about his capability or ambition.
    I’d take Tomsula over Mangini on any day to lead my defense..

  14. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Just to give things perspective
    why does Mangini deserve to be DC if in fact that job becomes open?
    He was DC for only one year at New England. His defense ranked 17th in points given up and 26th in yards.
    I believe in promoting from within if you have capable coaches. The Niners have 2 highly qualified guys in Tomsula and Donatell.
    I just think they should be passed up by a guy from outside the org.

  15. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I just read that the Raiders would have definitely drafted Kappy had we not moved ahead of them via trade. We both offered our 2nd round pick to the Pats. They wanted a 2nd and 3rd. Us and the Raiders both said no to New England. Difference is we kept trying to trade up. We found a trading partner a few picks later who only wanted a 4th and 5th pick. We then moved ahead of the Black Hole and took Kappy!

  16. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Good for us; better for Kappy. Oakland would likely not have been kind to him, any more than it has been to so many other guys.

  17. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Fantasy Football Today released their projections for this season. I’ll list the pertinent 49ers.
     
    Kap: 273/447/3,356. 21/13. 116/722/7
    Frank: 250/1,125/7. 29/212/1
    Boldin: 64/867/6
    He’s Wide Open All the Time: 35/455/3
    Patton: 13/166
    VD: 59/755/6
    Morrah: 14/146/1
    Vance McDonald: 9/92
    Phil Dawson: 35/39 44/44
     
    A few thoughts…if Kap only goes 21/13 in the TD/INT dept., we in trouble. And running the ball 116 times may fill up the stat sheet, but that’s taking quite a few hits. Kap’s very good at minimizing the damage and getting OB, but we don’t need him hangin’ out with RG III. Those numbers for Jenkins and Patton should be reversed. I forgot Morrah was even on the team. The numbers for McDonald are probably for his number of drops and penalty yds committed. And if Phil Dawson attempts 39 FGs this year, our red zone offense stinks on ice or Jimmy Raye is back calling plays. “What’s the play call, Jimmy?” Long silence followed by the sound of his head hitting the table as he nods off again. *thud*

  18. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The Raiduhs are always the hapless victim.
    We all know the story of how the Niners passed on Aaron Rodgers in 2005.
    The Raiduhs had a shot at him picking #23 but Al opted for Fabian Washington that fabulous DB that lasted all of 3 years and is now out of football.
    Raiduhs on an annual basis make the dumb pick.

  19. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    As for the drafting of CK,
    Tim Kawakami of the SJ Mercury predicted Dalton or Ponder for Harbaugh so what does he know?

    http://www.mercurynews.com/tim-kawakami/ci_17945503

  20. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Raymond Ventrone? Are the Niners trying to assemble the worst crop of NFL safeties ever to hit the field? They’re doing a great job so far. Raymond Ventrone. Sorry. Everybody doesn’t love Raymond.
     
    Bullit, I watched Sunday’s episode again today. I was still shocked and amazed with the outcome. Even the second time around. The Starks didn’t see that coming. Even Iron Man himself, Tony Stark, was shaking his head in disbelief.

  21. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Remember “winter is coming” and Jon Snow might be the key for the Stark clan.

  22. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I thought we might be interested in Dalton for the 2nd round or Kappy in the third. I was surprised when we moved up to get him, but I was happy. Del was hotter than a firecracker. I could not calm him down. Hopefully he is happy with the pick now.

  23. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Oh Bullitt, always the weenie. As usual, you mistake the facts of the matter to lash out (meekly) at me with your saccarine boosterism and rah-rah bullshit. I didn’t bring Mangini here. The Niners did. What other use is he here in the long term? Caddy?
    .
    It’s a stepping stone opportunity, obviously. But not as an offensive consultant. Capiche?

  24. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    RIP Deacon Jones
    What a terror he was in his playing days.

  25. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    The Rams Fearsome Foursome was Deacon Jones, Merlin Olsen, Lamar Lundy and Rosey Grier.
     
    RIP Deacon.

  26. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Chucky

    You are one of the biggest hypocrites around and always make things a personal attack with juvenile namecalling.
    I am sorry to refute your false claims with facts and I know you are embarrassed because you run a alleged 49er blog.
    You were dead wrong saying Tomsula would not want a promotion
    because you are too damn lazy to do any research which leads to sticking your foot in your trap.
    If you call a respectful difference of opinion lashing out then you ought to grow a thicker skin.

    What you miss completely is Mangini is more interested in returning to being a head coach than he is a coordinator.
    Hyuk that Skipper

  27. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Yes RIP Deacon Jones
    I just remember the head slaps and one of the coolest names
    “the secretary of defense”

  28. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Gee, Buwwitt, you never answered my question. Why did the Niners bring Mangini here? To make me happy? And how would one try to re-establish credibility? Working for ESPN? Do you really think Mangini sticks around next year as an offensive ‘assistant’? My point is they want him in the fold for something other than why they hired him now. Since Harbaugh isn’t going anywhere, the obvious choice for him would be DC.
    .
    Or do you think the Niners are doing this strictly for humanitatiam reasons? They want to rehab his viability so he can move on next year as a head coach? Seriously?
    .
    Plus, I never said Tomsula didn’t want the job or a DC/HC spot elsewhere. I said maybe. I like the guy. I was never sold on Mangini, anyway. I just think that the Niners are hedging their bet with Fangio. They were worried about the playoff shittiness, and are looking at different options going forward.

  29. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    What does my blog have to do with this?

  30. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Grant Cohn has an interesting view on why Mangini was hired
    and it’s outside of the box thinking.
    http://www.pressdemocrat.com/article/20130603/SPORTS/130609884/1016/SPORTS0401?p=3&tc=pg

  31. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Chuck

    You sure know how to backpedal and waffle.
    Now it’s maybe?
    Can you not state an opinion by presenting the facts without the personal attacks and childish namecalling?

  32. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Chuck

    So Fangio should be canned because of the defense’s playoff shittiness? They managed to almost win the Super Bowl and were the second ranked defense in the NFL.
    I’m rah rah and a booster because I support the team?
    If I was as negative as you we would not have Vernon Davis and
    Crabtree because you wanted to trade them for whatever they could get.
    Or did you say maybe back then?

  33. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    What I’m saying is Fangio’s defenses have statistically gotten worse and worse under him every stop in his career. Which is why the Niners brought Mangini here. What part of that don’t you get? If the Niners were comfortable with Tomsula being the heir apparent, they wouldn’t get Mangini.
    .
    Grant Cohn is an idiot. “there’s a chance Mangini could work his way up to DC . . .” Duh. Mangini isn’t on the 5 year plan to rehabilitate his name. He’s either DC or gone next year.

  34. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    2 years tops. Yes, Buwwitt, playing defense in the playoffs is something that’s important, eh? In a very short time we’ve reached the point of the season begin considered a failure if the Super Bowl isn’t achieved. It wasn’t, due in a large part to the defense playing like shit for the 1st half of the NFC Championship game, and the Super Bowl.

    Fangio’s defenses loses its effectiveness over time. Look it up. Is it his reliance on his vets? His reticence to rotate players in and out? I’d think that has something to do with it.
    .
    You think Harbaugh heaped praise on Fangio for his defense’s playoff performance? Thanks for the 40 point deficits, Vic. We’ll take it from here.
    .
    So, when I say Mangina’s here to replace Fangio, I’m wrong, but when Cohn says it, he’s right? Pretzel logic, skippy.

  35. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    IMO, if the owner will spend the money to hire a former HC to get another opinion of things, and if the chemistry works, why not? Seems to me this is a good move. We’ll just have to wait and see how it works out and what ensues.
     
    I’m not to worried about what Mangini does next year, I am more anxious to see how his hiring works out this year.

  36. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    There were at least 3 fearsome foursomes back in the day. The Rams were the only famous one. The NY Giants had one, with Rosy Grier, and the Chargers had one.
     
    Other great D-lines and defenses were, the Gold Rush, Purple People Eaters, Steel Curtain and NY Sack Exchange. Some defenses were the Doomsday, Grits Blitz and Orange Crush. Can any of you come up with some more names?

  37. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    The No Name defense of the Dolphins.

  38. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    And the 46 of the Bears.

  39. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Chuck

    You just can’t have a civil conversation without namecalling can you?
    Fact of the matter is in the last 2 years the main reason the Niners have made it to the Playoffs has been their defense.
    Perhaps you have lost your mind to what the strength of the team is.
    Did we watch the same Super Bowl?
    Behind by 15 at halftime you seem to forget James fumbling away points at the Raven 24.
    You want to blame Fangio for the 108 yard KO return to open the second half?
    I also believe the Niner Defense should have a better rotation especially up front.
    So let me paint a picture here for you. What happens when the Niners win the Super Bowl this year?
    You are way overthinking this.

  40. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Dome Patrol, Monsters of the Midway and the O defense, or the Sgt Schultz. including I don’t remember, I can’t recall, I take the 5th.

  41. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    The Dolphins also had the Killer Bs, or was it the Bees, in the 80’s.

  42. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I don’t remember the Sgt Schultz or O defense. I guess I need to look it up.

  43. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    OK, I’m a little slow. I got the Sgt Schultz defense. I was thinking football. Seems like this is the current defense for the IRS witch hunt case.
     
    What is the O defense?

  44. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Raiders had the “Eleven Angry Men” the year they set the sack record. 1967 IIRC?
     
    Detroit had “Chris’s Crew” in the secondary back in the 50s – Jack Christensen, Jimi David, Yale Lary, I think.

  45. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    IMO, the Sgt Schultz Defense will be followed by the Executive Privilege Defense!

  46. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    And the 50s Giants secondary was “Emlen’s Gremlins” – Emlen Tunnell, Tom Landry, Dick Nolan. They were pretty good, but Sam Huff was the destroyer on that team.

  47. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    How about Dwight Hicks and the Hot Licks!

  48. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Some great names on Emlen’s Gremlins!

  49. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Again, I’m slow. I just figured out the O defense. Duh! It is the Sgt Schultz defense. I’m here looking this stuff up on NFL boards. Too funny.

  50. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Oh, you meant just NFL defenses.
     
    Funny but the latest “Stolen Valor” law just passed because the SCOTUS maintains lying is free speech so had to specify lying for profit. Apparently team-Barry is all over it as they are currently exercising the shit out of that particular right.

    Did you say “down by 15” Buwwitt? Hmmmm. Did we spot Balt those points? How did those pesky points appear? Yeah we left points off the board with that fumble. But the defense gave up a 75 yard drive AFTER the fumble. Along with 2 other 50+ yard drives. Balt had the ball 4 times in the 1st half and scored 3 TDs. Good job, Vic. Here’s your sign.
    .
    Did you watch the 1st half of the NFCCG? Here’s a recap. Atl had the ball 5 times and scored on 4 possessions. 3 TDs and a FG. Great job, Bullitt. Here’s your sign.

    Again, getting to the playoffs isn’t the issue. Just ask Indy. Winning it all is.

    You’re welcome.

  56. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    I think Obama and company are going for the “We’re too effing stupid and incompetent to be a threat to you” defense. “We don’t know, we can’t remember, we effed it up, and it doesn’t matter anyway!” It’s petty scandal, Keystone Cops style. Almost makes you long for the days of Tricky Dick, who would have said, “[Expletive Deleted] all of you!”

  57. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Chuck

    Keep up with the namecalling and acting like a little brat.
    Why are demonizing Fangio and the defense? Who won the NFCCG? Which defense pitched a shutout in the second half?
    Keep embarrassing yourself by your comments because nothing is easy in this league and that’s why they have 2 halfs and play 60 mins.
    I will take first and goal at the Raven 7 with 2:37 left in the game
    anytime down by 5. You have put your team in a position to win and that’s all you can ask for.
    You are so full of crap to blame the loss on Fangio so please continue with this and show your total lack of football knowledge.

    A short football lesson for you the uninformed.
    When you’re in the playoffs and the Super Bowl you are playing the elite teams in the NFL.
    They generally have very good offenses and are tougher to stop.
    Most teams are evenly matched.
    Consider yourself a little smarter.
    Now you’re welcome! Hyuk!

  65. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Skipper

    Keep digging a bigger hole for yourself showing off your ignorance and how lazy you are.
    You quote Cohn but cherry pick
    and leave out this all important and encompassing line that was in conclusion:
    “It’s likely Mangini leaves the 49ers after this season and signs as a “consultant” with another team that wants to learn all there is to know about the 49ers.”
    Sorry Skipper Hyuk!

  66. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    No one called Ronnie Lott Lurk.
    .
    If giving up 24 points in the 1st half is putting your team in a position to win, then you are dumber than you sound. The D came out flat in the 1st half of the NFCCG, and they followed that by coming out even flatter in the Super Bowl. Without the power outage, the Niners may have lost by 28.
    .
    Wide Richey, Steve Miss-a-mile, Cortez the Killer miss, the cornfield backfield, the million dollar backfield, Hugh the King McElhenny, Leo the Lion Nomellini, Joe Cool, Flash 80, Running Watters . . .

  67. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    I seriously doubt the Niners signed Mangini to hang around for one year. The FO isn’t that stupid. Cohn is an idiot, and you are ‘learning’ from him? Now that’s funny.

  68. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    This is just my opinion since you asked.
    A decent defensive effort is giving your offense a chance at the end of the game to win the game or run out the clock with the lead.
    They achieved that and held the Ravens to two FGs in the second half.
    Newsflash for you the football ignorant. Defensive players need to execute for a defense to work.
    Doesn’t matter how you scheme it as the DC if a player doesn’t execute his assignment or make a tackle.

  69. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Skipper

    Can’t have it both ways. You quote Cohn like he’s the authority when it goes your way and then turn on him when it doesn’t.

    Getting back to Deacon Jones.
    I caught a few minutes of the NFL Network tonight airing a Football Life on Deacon.
    I didn’t realize how amazingly close Deacon was to the Family of former Coach George Allen.
    Get a look if you can.
     
    Daughter Jennifer named a Son after him.
     
    Turned out it was her 2nd Son, because, she had a childhood crush on Roman Gabriel, which prompted her to name her first Son Roman.
     
    That apparently ticked Deacon off to no end so, she gave the name Deacon to her next born.
    Amazing story, I plan to finish viewing the episode tomorrow from the DVR.

    You keep getting deeper and deeper and spin as you might
    you’re going to drown in your BS.
    Trying to squirm away from Defensive Coordinator for Mangini and flip flop over to head coach?
    Why do you keep shifting your argument? It’s pathetic.
    Nobody can predict what’s going to happen and certainly not a
    football igororamus such as yourself.
    Accept the fact that he is here what he was announced to do without this conspiracy BS and
    Fangio out the door.
    The Niners came very close to winning the SuperBowl but you for some odd reason think they should have lost by 28.
    Keep chewing on those toenails because your foot is perfectly postioned. Hyuk!

    My career path for Mangina.
    .
    Consultant, DC here, HC somewhere else.
    .
    Buwwitt’s career path:
    .
    Consultant for the Niners, consultant for the Seahawks, comsultant for the Falcons, consultant for the Rams, consultant for the Eagles, consultant for the Raiders, consultant for the Titans . . .

  78. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    NJ, as much as I hated the Rams as a kid, I couldn’t help but respect and admire Deacon Jones. I saw him play a couple times near the end with the Rams, and he still was a force to be reckoned with.

    No one cares about your breathless protestations, Buwwitt.
    .
    But keep ’em coming. I love arguing with a child.

  79. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    NJ, Deacon was on the greatest pass rushers ever. The Rams recorded him unofficially as totaling 173.5 sacks in his career. He wasn’t shy about sounding his own horn, either. But there was one guy he looked up to. When asked about him, he just said, “Perfect. Perfect, perfect. The only perfect defensive end.”
     
    That was a local boy – USF great, Baltimore Colt champion, HOFer Gino Marchetti.

  80. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    I heard 194.5 for Deacon from pro football weekly, FWIW. Loved any footage of him talking about anything. But his take on football was always spot-on.

    I have to admit it, I loved Defense even as a kid.
    Long before finding Offense in SD and SF, my Brother and I would often model our backyard games after guys like Buck Buchanan, Bubba Smith,Chuck Bednarik and Dick Butkus, among many of the others of the era.
     
    I eventually grew up to loathe the Rams and Cowboys but, you couldn’t ignore the Fearsome Foursome, Steel Curtain and even guys like Randy White, Leroy Selmon and Alex Karas back in the day.
    Even guys like Ted Hendricks and Lyle Alzado had their turn in the spotlight during that time.
     
    Deacon was quite the personality however.
    Guys like him brought much deserved recognition to the term,’Love of the Game’.
    Kill the QB, over and over and over.
     
    Busting butt to win.
    Playing as a TEAM.
    Taking pride in hard work.
     
    Good Man Mr Deacon Jones.
    Need more in today’s game like him and, a lot less of guys like JaMarcus Russell.

    Yeah, the Chiefs defense of the late 60s-early 70s was a fave of mine as well. Beyond Otis Taylor (hey I was a WR), I loved the Chiefs D. Bobby Bell, Willie Lanier, Curly Culp, Buck Buchanan, and Jim Lynch. Those guys were relentless.

    You personify why Raiduh Nation

    You ought to review what you posted yesterday and declare temporary insanity.
    As a Niner fan I was disappointed with the ultimate outcome of the Super Bowl but also proud of how they fought back and refused to quit. They almost pulled it off. That took character, something you don’t seem to understand.
    You really exposed yourself saying
    they should’ve lost by 28 if the lights didn’t go out.
    How so? You are admitting to giving up on the team?
    Please strike your little slogan
    from your blog “Red and Gold til I’m dead and cold” because they are empty words and based on what you have said is an obvious fraud.
    What a joke. Hyuk!

    I didn’t realize the Niners gave you a press credential allowing you to attend media events and press conferences.
    Most everyone else relys on all the media outlets to obtain info.
    Even watching a game on TV, you’re at the mercy of what the director and producers will allow you to see.
    Apparently either Baalke or Harbaugh has confided in you their real plans for Mangini when you were in their office.
    Do Maiocco and Barrows steal material from you too?

    How does the game turn out if the power doesn’t go out? (I’ll give you a hint here. MANY Balt players said it rattled them. The Niners, who had gone through this already, came out of it a different team)
    .
    And overall, how did the defense do in the playoffs?

    You are total cartoon character.
    Thanks for admitting to giving up on the Niners in the Super Bowl and showing your true colors.
    That’s what you said so keep squirming and walking back every foolish thing you posted.
    Funny thing about the Super Bowl.
    When the team fell behind it wasn’t just the defense that led to the deficit. The offense managed only a pair of FGs and the Special Teams gave up a KO return for a TD.
    But being the rational and reasonable guy you are you lay it all at Fangio’s feet and target him to get the axe.
    You sure know your football.
    How do you give up on your team in the Super Bowl when there is still time on the clock?

  100. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Why did Niner bring Mangini in?
    Don’t know how to read?
    Jim Harbaugh spells it out for you
    “I feel like we added a really talented, knowledgeable coach,” Harbaugh said. “(He will) look at how defenses are going to prepare for us and where we can attack defenses. That’s what’s his role will be, helping game-planning and overall offensive scheme.”

    .
    You come up with “Mangina will leave next year” per Cohn. Stupidest thing ever written by a sportswriter. Why? Because that would be tantamount to letting someone steal the playbook. You of course buy it. You then say Mangina shouldn’t get the DC job over Tomsula (a valid point, but not the topic at hand). It may not pan out the way I think it may, but that’s the fun of blogging. Bringing different things to light. Not getting all hissy when someone doesn’t like what you say.
    .
    Next you parrot Harbaugh and what he says. If you think Harbaugh is shooting straight about this, I got some property on the moon for ya.

    The point being, you haven’t speculated on anything around the Mangini hire. Which is all I’m doing. You’ve merely posted what others have said or changed the argument to tangential things.

    Chuck

    Let’s recap all of this discussion
    from the beginning with the truth
    which everyone can verify simply by reading the string of posts.
    It all started when I expressed
    my sentiment that if Fangio ever left Tomsula or Donatell should be in line for the DC job and not an outsider like Mangini.
    You posted that Mangini wasn’t interested in being a DC which I debunked with an article.
    Then you started the namecalling and personal attack and said this.
    “I didn’t bring Mangini here. The Niners did. What other use is he here in the long term? Caddy?
    It’s a stepping stone opportunity, obviously. But not as an offensive consultant. Capiche?”
    Mangini’s title is offensive consultant. Mangini said he was an offensive consultant as did Harbaugh. The core of your argument and rants is that he is not. You are beating me over the head with your speculation of underlying reasons and running around like it was real.
    Then you start on Fangio laying out the reasons on why he should be fired for losing the Super Bowl. In doing this you also voice the opinion the Niners should have lost by 28 points.
    I was responding to your attacks on Fangio. You kept introducing new elements which I responded to such as the NFCCG.
    The big reveal here is when you said this “I tend to think things through and come to conclusions that may or may not be true, vaild, or even sane.”
    Knowing this how can anybody have a discussion with a delusional?
    That is my Reader’s Digest version.

  123. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Doh! My whole point, which you obviously missed 15 times, is that the Niners brought Mangina here to replace Fangio should the defense falter. They have him under contract in case the D slips, and they want to install someone else next season (2014. Get it?).
    .
    Christ on a bicycle. How many times did that sail over your head?

    Chuck

    Please tell me how you are connecting the dots.
    If there is a hint of truth to what your saying then Mangini would have a title of just Senior Consultant. Provide some proof.
    The front office went out of their way to tag him the OFFENSIVE
    consultant and holy crap at the OTAs he’s working with the OFFENSE. If you see him working with the Defense you canstart your gossip.
    You floating the idea that Fangio is going to be fired saying his defenses slide. Actually they got better from 2011 to 2012.

    I believe continuity is a key to success in your coaching staff.
    The reality is we lost the Super Bowl by 3 points and you want to fire Fangio for that.
    Did Walsh have Seifert fired after the Gnats beat the Niners
    49-3?
    History reveals that Seifert won 2 more Super Bowls.
    Knee jerk reactions in canning coaches is for losers like Jerry Jones. You choose to follow his example.
    Are you capable of acting like an adult and having a discussion without namecalling and personal attacks?

    And the GM.

  129. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    *sigh*
    .
    Sorry creative thinking isn’t your repertoire, skippy. Here’s how it works. The 49ers front office recognize that there were problems with the defense in the playoffs (I said the 49ers, not you). They see a guy with an interesting track record in Mangini. Thing is, there aren’t any openings for defensive coaches, so they come up with a consultant position. Sure, they can call it whatever they want. So they go with offensive consultant. Sounds good. No one on the defensive side is immediately alarmed by the addition of an obviously defensive minded coach. He likely stays in that OC position this year. Funny thing is, he signed a 2 year deal to stay here.
    .
    IF the defense has more problems, OR if Fangio gets a HC gig somewhere else, they have a guy like Mangina under contract that they could then switch to DC.
    .
    I know. Shit like this never happens in the NFL. . . . (insert eye-roll).

    Talk about pretzel logic. So you’re saying Baalke/Harbaugh hired Mangini under the guise of helping the offense and giving him that title so as not to piss the defensive coaches off. But it’s OK following your logic to piss the offensive coaches off for this year. Following your logic next year when in fact Mangini takes over as the Defensive Coordinator the entire coaching staff will be pissed off.
    Attempting to think with your limitations might not be such a good thing.

    ESPN wrapped up the Top 5 NFL Coaches in one show today. I thought they were going to spread it out. Anywho, the Top 5 are: 5)Chuck Noll 4)George Halas 3)Don Shula 2)Bill Walsh 1)Vince Lombardi. I’d argue if I could.
     
    What’s a mook and do they get paid? I like hot weather, but I hate the Heat.

    Harbaugh is the best thing to happen to the Niners going back 15-20 years.

    You derive that I hate Harbaugh because he lies to the press? You, sir, are a major league idiot.

    If you think that Mangini doesn’t have designs on something other than the job he has now, you are dumber than a bag of dicks.

    You carry your dick around in a bag?
    We’re talking about King Joffery and here you are going Jeffery Dahmer with dicks in a bag including your own. ouch!
    Now who’s the dumb one?

    Too funny that Chuck was the one that posted the Judge Judy clip above but has forgotten about how the Judge Judy topic started. You have other things to worry about when you are carrying a bag of …
