Gaggers Weekend

No matter how boring the playoff races seem at the beginning of December, somehow the final two or three weekends come out dripping with excitement. Because weird shit happens. Every year.

Last week, the Denver Mannings led off by gagging away the top seed in the AFC on Thursday night. Not to be outdone, on Sunday the New England Bradys gagged that seed right back to them in Miami, where the ref crew forgot to give Tom Brady the obligatory pass interference in the end zone call on his latest Hail Mary game ender. Actually, ex-49er practice squadder, Michael Thomas, intercepted Brady and made the refs cringe at overturning such a fine play.

Monday night, the Detroit Schwartzes continued their month long gag by losing to the Ravens and going from sure NFC North winners to a team with almost no hope left. The beneficiary of the Schwartz melt downers was, who else, John Harbaugh and the Ravens, who seem to have some kind of unholy deal with the football gods. Last year, it was the ridiculous last minute victory in Denver and Monday it was a give-me-a-break 61 yard field goal.

In Minnesota, the Eagles gagged away the NFC East lead by losing to the Vikings, then watched the NFL’s premier gagman, Tony Romo, hand the East back to them with yet another of his fabled come from ahead defeats, this time at home against Green Bay. The Bengals laid down like dogs in front of Pittsburgh to cement their image of just when you think they’re good, they’re not — and vice versa. Not a team you want to wager any money on.

And in the NFC South, the Saints went to St. Louis and threw up their lead over the Panthers and quite possibly the number two seed in the playoffs. That spot will be determined this weekend in Carolina.

Not everyone gagged, for sure. Kansas City built a 25 point lead against Oakland in the first half, watched the Raiders cut the lead to four in the 3rd quarter, then built the lead back to 25 in the 4th quarter. The win clinched a playoff spot for the Chiefs. And the entire NFC West won its games, though Arizona tried mightily to barf away their game in Tennessee before winning in overtime.

Strangely enough, the Packers, who gave up on their season a month ago, can still win their division if they sweep their final two games. Ditto for the Bears, Eagles, and Cowboys. The Bengals have a chance to not only gag away the division that was theirs for the taking, but have an outside chance to miss the playoffs entirely.

And lastly, in a bit of comic relief, Rex Ryan insists, yet again, that he’s the right guy to coach the Jets. Not to be outdone, Jerry Jones also insisted he’s the right guy to be the Cowboys GM.

    Since we’ve been put in a SLOW rowboat together I will say I agree with your point about pocket awareness with Kap and his field vision.
    In order for Kap to get better he needs to face the truth.
    Opposing defensive coordinators are scheming defenses that force Kap into his least comfortable situations and taking away his most successful money plays.

    If schmucks like us see it on some blog what do you think opposing defensive coordinators are doing?

    I will go back to that one play because this new video and view will give you a better perspective. What the original video I provided didn’t show was they were in a 3 man bunch formation with VD, Boldin and Crabtree. KAP should have vision of all 3 of these receivers because they are directly in front of him. I will spare the editorial comment and let the video do the talking.

    Bullit- First you bring up the term Ad Nauseum and then you show us the definition of it. I know you need the last word and can’t possibly be wrong about anything but we won the game handily and that play was a first down. You keep going on about this without me. While you are trying to prove to everybody how right you are, I’m happy we won. And I am also happy with our QB.

  3. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    From yesterday’s thread (to Bergs and NJ49er:

    Well, with more competent wide recievers comes more innovative play calling one would think. And according to Matt Maiocco, they installed 30 new plays last week. Which had something to do with the fact that there was some confusion among the players on how to line up correctly.

    Better to iron this shit out now than to f*** it up in the playoffs. SO there IS something to Harbaugh and Co saving some shit for the playoffs.

  4. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Unca- Maybe there is also some truth to Robaugh being tired of having their game plans being question by their own players and decided to evolve. I heard the doppelganger ghost of Chuck Knox visited them in their sleep and warned them of the play-off failures when relying on the SCO.

  5. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Chuck

    “The bone I have to pick is Bullit’s assertion that Kappy is on some sort of timeframe.”

    Fact of the matter is Jed York, Baalke and Harbaugh will have to decide in the next 14 months if Kaepernick is the future and merits the $15 to $20mil per year, Joe Flacco deal.
    With upfront signing bonus that’s committing 20% of your cap to Kap and letting Iupati, Boldin and Crabtree walk because you can’t afford them?

    Right now Niners are between a rock and a hard place.
    Kap hasn’t shown that he can carry the team yet if he doesn’t have talented receivers so what do you do?

    IMO Kap is similar to Andy Dalton, a meh QB.

  6. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Neither can Andrew Luck, skippy. Youthinkthey jettison him?

  7. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Andrew Luck has proven to be very mortal without Reggie Wayne. It’s called building a team, skippy. Without all the parts, you have nothing. I assume it would be better to trade Kappy and draft a rookie next year. You know, since they walk in and go to Super Bowls like Kappy did.

    Again, what’s your alternartive? Piss and moan when he signs a deal? Bank on Harbaugh drafting and building up a rookie next year?

    Gee, do you think they might learn some things by the end of next season? Seriously. You can’t be this dense. Youve called him out as a shitty QB, and he has 1.25 seasons to go befire they make the decision.

    Thank God you weren’t Harry Truman’s campaign manager.

    More juvenile potshots?
    Are you capable of having a serious discussion without your BS?

    Andrew Luck with Reggie Wayne 7 TDs
    Andrew Luck after Reggie Wayne 14 TDs

    You might be right about Dalton not equaling Kap because Dalton has thrown 9 more TDs than Kap and they have the same QBR

    I do not post on your blog so you can stop stroking your ego and flattering yourself. And above all else stop your backstabbing lies.

    If you have something to say to me you can do so here instead of your preferred chikinshit method of talking behind my back with your minions In Chucky world. I understand if you’re afraid and can’t handle it.

  12. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Juvenile? No, those are clearly adult-oriented potshots.

    Let’s see. 10 TDs and 3 picks before Wayne went down.

    11-6 after. Trend?

    5-2 with Wayne, 4-3 without. While that sounds similar, with Wayne, wins over SF, Seattle, and Denver.

    Without Wayne, losses to the Rams (!), AZ (!!), and Cincy.

    Right. As we all know the guy that throws the most TDs gets into the playoffs.

    Carve that one in stone, skippy. Andy Dalton is a better QB than Colin Kaepernick. Kappy is leading his team into the playoffs while Cincy gags its way to the sidelines.

  13. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    OK, you are a worthless troll, Bullitt, You are an idiot. You post as if anything you say is fact and that any reply is a personal affront. Look at Bergs and NJ’s exchange from yesterday. You come unglued whenever anyone questions you. When you get schooled, you change the parameters of the argument, and then belittle and harass. Then go to the tried-and-true measure of digging up 4 year old posts where someone said something that didn’t come to pass, and you caper madly over it. You act like a 5 year old. Why Skeebs tolerates your stupid F***ing antics is beyond me. But to each his own.

    I keep hearing that the league has learned how to stop the read option. I’m hearing it TV and on blogs. I disagree that the league has learned how to stop the read option when run out of the Pistol. When designed and executed properly it can’t be stopped. The problem as I see it is too many OCs have tried to run it their way and are missing the very point of the offense. Enter, Greg Roman.

    The read/option (RO) works best when a formation empties the box on defense. If a formation allows even one extra man in the box all options can be covered rendering the play a very low chance of succeeding. The best I’ve always seen it run is out of an 11 package with 3 WRs very wide. This brings coverage wide and makes the safeties drop back before the ball is even snapped. If the safeties don’t drop the RO becomes a passing play with 3 WRs all in man coverage, one on one. The most that a defense can be wisely put in the box with this formation is 7 and usually gets 6 in the box. Now the DE or OLB can be read and the RO should be successful. If more than that are in the box both options the QB selects are covered by the numbers available on defense. Greg Roman does not use the RO at its highest chance of success. He usually allows the defense to win the numbers match-up with the formations he chooses to run the RO from.

    I’ve watched teams try to stop the RO at Nevada for years. It can’t rarely be stopped when designed and executed properly. The best way to try and stop it is load the box and force the pass. If the pass rush is getting in the backfield fast the offense will struggle because while exercising the RO fake it takes too long to get the ball to a hot read. It takes good penetration from the defensive front to make it happen, while the others in the box are reading the run play. If opposing the Pistol formation with 3 wide this would require a solid pass rush while having 4 in the box to read the run. Not many defense can execute that on a consistent basis. But if a defense can stop that on a given day there is a good chance they would stop anything on that day. You would probably have to go 4 and 5 wide and get it out fast to your best pre snap reads to beat a defense playing like that.

    Show some definitive proof or STFU!
    Who the hell am I supposed to be today?

    Yes Chuck, you spend an entire day lobbying and pleading for somebody to be kicked off another blog you have no control of.
    Somebody you can’t censor. That’s the Chcken Chuck we have all come to know.

    And when you really can’t handle it as recently as last week, you get caught in another lie. Your explanation was I work for the NSA and deleted it. LMFAO!!!!!

    The bottom line is you just keep digging that hole deeper and deeper.

    Chuck and Bullit:

    Your personal war is growing tiresome. If you can’t debate an issue without the personal insults, then STFU or I’ll start deleting posts. No more insults.

  19. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebers- Is that because the OC wants all the control and doesn’t allow the QB to think on his feet or is it because the QB isn’t capable of changing it up. Since Alex said the biggest difference between SF and KC is he doesn’t have all the restrictions on him I’m saying it is the first example.

  20. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I like Dixon as runner. He’s very light on his feet for a big back but will put his head down when needed. I don’t know how good he is as a blocker. I hope he does well with this opportunity.

  21. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “Skeebers- Is that because the OC wants all the control and doesn’t allow the QB to think on his feet or is it because the QB isn’t capable of changing it up.”

    I guess that’s what the debate is all about. I think it’s a little of both. You say the offense is better because the play calling is better. I say it’s because we got better horses now. Watching Crabtree work a DB to get open is something none of his replacements came close to doing.

  22. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Which doesn’t rule out RoBaugh being conservatives, but hey, whatever they’re doing, we’re going to the playoffs three straight years, so it’s kind of hard to bitch too much.

  23. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “League source confirms it looks like 49ers will be bringing converted DT Will Tukuafu back to help fill Bruce Miller’s void at FB.”

  24. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Berg, looking at the vid Bullit posted, it’s clear Boldin was the primary target and Kap never looked elsewhere. But that’s what every QB in the league does. If the first read is open, they throw it.

  25. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebers- All you said is true but there are some who want Harbaugh fired because he is looking more like a Chuck Knox than a Bill Walsh. I don’t want him fired, I just want some evolution of the offense. I would even put up with Roman if he would evolve. He’s looked too much like the two Rams games from last year when we had all of our horses healthy. What was the excuse for those two games? But the last 4 games have seen a marked improvement in the play calling and that started before we got our horses back. Getting the horses back just makes it that much better.

    This evolution of Robaugh will probably take years. Dungy, Billacheat and Coughlin had to get fired to change from the SCO. They all won SBs at their next stops. Knox and Schottenheimer never did change. They both went to the play-offs on a regular basis and never won it all. I don’t think either even made it to the SB. I just hope Harbaugh does not have to be fired to see the light. The changes from the last 4 games give me hope!

    Getting our horses back have helped us win but in citing last year’s Rams games, it doesn’t matter if you don’t use them. I think Frank Gore’s comments is what they heard the loudest and is possibly the most impactful thing that affected our season and helped the change in play calling.

  26. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    If he would have looked at Crabtree the defenders would have gone there instead of to Boldin. Going to a 2nd read possibly gets him sacked. Watching the video says I wish he would have thrown to Crabs but since we got the first down I wouldn’t change a thing. Especially since we won.

  27. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    It might be DT Will Tukuafu but who believes it isn’t really FB Will Tukuafu!

  28. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    He’s listed as FB only.

    Browner was offered a deal of an 8 game suspension earlier.
    He thought he could beat the charges completely and basically
    pissed away the 2014 season if the suspension is one year.
    The League announced it as indefinite.
    The sidenote is nobody can sign or work him out until the suspension is over.

    Todd McShay of ESPN has come out with his first mock draft
    Drafting 28th he has the Niners taking

    Ra’Shede Hageman

    San Francisco 49ers (10-4)

    COLLEGE: Minnesota

    AGE: 23

    HT: 6-5

    WT: 307

    POS: DT

    Analysis: Hageman had a monster season for Minnesota in 2013, and I think he is one of those guys who will go on to be a better pro than he was a college player. He is tall, long and well-built with good mobility, and he can take on blocks against the run and is an effective bull rusher against the pass. Moreover, he’s a perfect fit for the 49ers. He is at his best playing as a 5-technique defensive end in a 3-4 alignment, and he could come in and not have to be an every-down guy right away before eventually replacing Justin Smith in the starting lineup. With some improvement to his technique and hand placement, Hageman could be a really good player.”

    Drafting late in the first round has been dicey as evidenced by AJ Jenkins and Kentwan Balmer.
    Seems a little redundant because of the Tank Carradine selction in the last draft.
    Never heard of this guy but now he’s on the radar.

  34. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    McShay has the Raiduhs picking 3rd and in typical Raiduh fashion he has them selecting another QB, who most have never heard of.

    Blake Bortles*

    Oakland Raiders (4-10)

    COLLEGE: UCF

    AGE: 21

    HT: 6-4

    WT: 228

    POS: QB

    Analysis: The Raiders need to upgrade at the QB position, and even though he isn’t the most well-known prospect, Bortles has the potential to be a top-10 pick. In fact, it wouldn’t shock me if he ends up going ahead of Bridgewater.

    Bortles has good size, arm strength and accuracy, and has proved he can win from inside the pocket. He also possesses good character and a strong football IQ. A nice bonus is that he’s built to last in the NFL because he’s big and mobile enough to move around. He isn’t Cam Newton, but more of a cross between Joe Flacco and Ben Roethlisberger.”
    ==
    Never heard of this guy until recently and it’s really rolling
    the dice picking this unknown 3rd. This means they’re passing on Clowney to take Bortles.
    McShay says Raiduhs are looking for a Rothlisberger or a Flacco
    but you have to think they’re looking for their Kaepernick.

  35. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I love the Hageman pick. I’ve been checking him out since NJ brought him a month or two ago. I don’t see Tank taking Justin Smith’s spot. I see him more as a 3rd OLB/pass rusher.

    I haven’t heard of Bortles. I’ll have to watch some hilites tonight.

    I must have missed it when NJ talked about Hageman.
    Taking a look it led me to this video.
    A few of the guys we’ve talked about are on this video.
    Hageman is said to have serious off field issues so he’s downgraded and the FO needs to look into this. Hard to say because Vontaze Burfict was downgraded and went undrafted and now he’s
    doing quite well for the Bungles. Until the sheet hits the fan I suppose.

    It is tough to say goodbye to “The Stick” for it is truly hallowed ground. You can’t help but be sad for this chapter of 49er history ends when the lights get turned off Monday.

    The seed has been planted that Joe Montana will miss the game on Monday Night because he’ll be in New Orleans watching his son in a bowl game on Saturday. The rumor is that’s just a smokescreen because his son’s game is on a Saturday and even if he leaves New Orleans Mon at Noon he should make it to the Monday Night Game. Not that he needs it but the surprise guest get’s the loudest ovation.

    Huey Lewis and the News will be there to sing the National Anthem for one last time.

    Bullit- The #1 D-lineman for me is still Nix. He’s just not movable with a little pass rush ability. Comparing him to Raji was an accurate comparison. He should be long gone before we pick. I would love to get a Justin Smith replacement. Don’t know who that is yet. It’s very possible there isn’t one. Hagamen looks the part. But then we may already have him in Dial. I would think our first pick will be a WR, CB or safety. But if Nix is there, I can’t see passing. Tuit gets a lot of pub but he doesn’t do as well without Nix taking on all the double teams.

  56. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Berger

    Bortles just came out of the blue. Normally QBs like him surface at the All Star games and continue into the combine.
    McShay says he might jump Bridgewater.
    If teams reach for QBs quality players will drop 3 to 5 spots making a trade more palatable.

  57. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I think Carr or Bridgewater goes first. It will probably come down to the combine interviews. Another QB nobody is talking about is Fales from SJ St. He was originally at Nevada but transferred. He could be the next Nick Foles. Seriously, this guy is good. It is hard to believe Bortles is better than Fales. But we saw Foles drop in the draft and what he is doing now. I remember telling everybody Foles will go 2nd or 3rd round but he is really a first rounder. Fales is about the same. He might be good for us in the late 2nd or 3rd round.

    Your problem is you make this way too personal and take it too far.
    Time to think like a rational adult.
    This is meant to be a pleasant experience but you make it otherwise.
    As they say, it’s your funeral.
