Sunday marked the end of life without football. R.I.P. hunk of shit dead air time.
The 49ers tee it up Thursday night against the Ravens. Can’t wait to see Jewel Hampton blowing through holes opened up by Al Netter and Carter Bykowski. At the rate our boys are getting injured in Training Camp, Al and Carter could be O-line starters by game time.
This will be the first meeting between the Harbaugh Bros. since Harbaugh the Younger’s squad stalled out at the five yard line in the 2012 Super Bowl. In fact, Junior has never beaten Senior in the NFL, losing twice.
Most people consider John Harbaugh the nicer fellow compared to his wild hair brother Jim Harbaugh. Perhaps that’s so, to the untrained eye. But consider which team each coaches. Jim coaches the illustrious, superlative San Francisco 49ers and John coaches the repulsive, backstabbing Baltimore Ravens.
The Ravens’ uniforms are among the ugliest in the NFL. The black tights are obscene. Their dead owner recently had his grave peed on by a Browns fan, and rightly so. All Browns fans should be afforded the opportunity to Take a Leak on Art.
For thirteen years, the idiot Baltimore fans made a hero out of one of the biggest jackasses ever to play in the league — Ray Lewis, and just last week gave a standing ovation to Ray Rice when he showed up for camp after beating his wife senseless in an elevator and getting a mere wrist slapping by commissioner Roger Goodell. And Ray was promptly praised by John the Good for the heroic manner in which his RB thug was dealing with adversity. A truly putrid franchise. At least Jim the Bad would have snarled that Ray was working through something.
Here’s hoping the team doesn’t get any cooties from practicing with these jerks.
First round pick Jimmie Ward is getting great reviews in camp so far, as is second rounder Carlos Hyde. Last year’s second rounder, Tank Carradine, has gotten good marks for his ability, but bad marks for his brain. D-line is probably the least rocket science oriented of the various team groupings, so we trust the Tankster will get this cranial issue sorted out adequately in time for the regular season.
Despite the probable season ending biceps tear suffered by NT Glen Dorsey, the D-line currently looks like the 49ers’ deepest and most talented crew of this century. This should help offset the loss of ILB extraordinaire Navorro Bowman during the early part of the season. His replacement has not yet been decided among Michael Wilhoite, Nick Moody, and the rookie Chris Borland. This position battle will be one of the highlights of the preseason games.
