Baalke’s Decade

With the departures of Patrick Willis, Ray McDonald, Michael Crabtree, and Frank Gore, the Mike Nolan/Scot McCloughan draft era is just about wrapped up. There are only two guys left: Joe Staley and Vernon Davis. And only one FA signing — Justin Smith.

Hard to believe, but GM Trent Baalke has been on the job now for five years. This will be his sixth draft. As you can see from the talent listed above, the 49ers’ previous success rested on the backs of the Nolan/McCloughan players. From here on out, it will be Baalke’s team, win or lose.

The fact that the Nolan/McCloughan core players defined this team for ten years gives you an idea of how much good or bad a GM can do for a franchise. Are Baalke’s draft picks and FA signings going to define the team for the next ten years? If so, what is that definition going to be?

If I’m Baalke, I’m thinking right now that my legacy is currently in the hands of Jim Tomsula, who is not an NFL caliber Head Coach. Tomsula is not going to bring out the best in my players, like Jim Harbaugh did for Nolan & McCloughan’s players. In fact, I’m not even going to let Tomsula coach the effing team. Here’s some pom-poms, Jimmy. I’ll coach the team myself.

That’s not a very smart move, but it’s the only move Jed York left him with when York insisted that Tomsula be either the DC (so long, Adam Gase) or, by default, the HC. I’m willing at this point to give Baalke the benefit of the doubt for not being so incredibly stupid that he actually thinks Tomsula is the man for the job. If I’m wrong about that, then there won’t be anything to cheer about in 49erland for a long, long time. Ten years might be the short end of a screw up that monumental.

At this point, the jury is still out on whether Baalke is even an above average GM. Let alone competent to coach the team. Signing Torrey Smith looks good on paper, but the other FA signings so far look like recycled junk. The upcoming draft is critical for Baalke, even more so now that the guys he drafts are the ones he’s going to coach. It will be interesting to see if he still spends picks on torn ACL guys who can’t play for a year.

    Remember just last year and in past seasons when the Niners were making moves to counter any moves the Seahags would make.
    That’s how close the balance of power was between these two teams. Sadly that ship has sailed.
    When the Seahags acquired Jimmy Graham all the Niners could do was say we’ve got nothing especially with Patrick Willis retiring who would draw the responsibility of covering Graham.

    Whenever the Niners faced the Aints you were aware of Brees but
    the matchup that caused your defense the most concern was stopping Graham. Now that Graham is on the Seahags the Niners get to face him twice a year. Graham is a matchup nightmare and is a playmaker in tight games.

    Sehags keep Lynch and Niners lose Gore and ikt’s not even worth the time to make the team comparison as Seahags have pulled ahead.

    Kap’s QB Guru Dennis Gile’s involvement get’s more bizarre everyday.
    This is what Maiocco revealed yesterday
    “In talking to Dennis Gile and the 49ers, they tell me there’s been no contact between the sides. That just seems so bizarre to me. How can an independent coach decide unilaterally to completely overhaul a quarterback’s mechanics? I don’t know. The closest ties with which I’m familiar are with Trent Dilfer and Trent Baalke. Dilfer has worked closely with Gile, and I know Dilfer and Baalke are friendly.”

    Remember I questioned Gile’s resume. He was a camp QB with the Pats and puts down on his resume he played in the NFL. He was a Arena League QB playing in exactly one game. Then he had stints on a CFL roster but the majority of his career was spent with the Inside Football League and the Intense Football League. His partner is a high school football coach.
    I don’t know these guys from Adam but how much knowledge and what improvements can they teach Kap.
    Just because I’ve driven on the freeway doesn’t mean I can teach someone to compete in NASCAR.

    This is kinda like having a root-canal, we are just so “F-ing” doomed.
    I truly was a sad day for the club when Willis said goodbye but in reality most of those players mentioned are well over their prime and their production has fallen. I know gore got his 1000 again but his touchdown rate fell drastically. I don’t know what Tomsula is gonna do but I sure don’t think he’s a total puppet. My guess is the players will give 100% for the guy. It’s a retooling year and lets see what we get. And, “F” Seattle.

  4. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    I think that’s the point. Nolan brought in the players and the systems. The 3-4 personnel, hybrid defense. McCarthy, Turner, Martz to coach the offense. Gore set records behind his dominate tackle/guard FAs (Larry Allen and the glass man JJ).

    Gore’s TDs were down this past year but Hyde got some of his goal-line carries and his contributions/opportunities in short yardage receiving TDs were largely given to Crabtree without the best results. So where are their replacements? Our defense and Aldon were merely mediocre without Justin Smith (or when he played with a bum wing). And now we’ll go without their coach, too.

    I think the players will play for Tomsula. That’s not the problem. They played for Singletary, too. When they started losing, Singletary had no experience there and no answers. The team needs the good players to win and the players deserve to be led and coached by the best coaches. It doesn’t always happen but at least the owners should make the effort. Who can deny we got stuck with the last resort in another of York/Baalke’s “exhaustive searches?

    You can give your successful billion dollar company over to a junior manager to run if you want to put a thumb in the eye of your stock holders but who does that? And who survives that decision in the real world?

  5. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The coaching changeover is underwhelming to say the least.
    You took one of the best coaching staffs in the league and disassembled the staff because you wanted a fresh start and to go in a different direction.
    You try to hire some new young coaches but get turned down especially in Philly where a position coach wanted to remain a receivers coach rather than get promoted to be your OC.
    Instead of bringing in some new coordinators you hire from the staff you just fired and sell it as innovative change.
    That’s putting lipstick on Porky.

  6. winderNo Gravatar says:

    I do wish Fangio would have stayed but he’s really the only one. I also think the FO really screwed the pooch on how they went about things. I don’t know if Gage or whoever turned us down could do a better job with what we have or not. He isn’t a proven talent either. The team had to let go most of the players who left, we need the cap room. To me Kap has the talent and ability to be one of the best QB’s in the league. i know he didn’t look very good most of last year but I think a lot of that is in the game plan and coaching. We will see.

    Matching Seattle’s moves got us where? You guys are seriously distracted by shiny things.

    Even the guys they were trying to get were unproven, but since they didn’t work out, they were genuisses fro not coming? Pretzel logic at its finest.

    Funny. No? I think so. Shut this place down, skippy. Another 4 months of reading about how stupid they are is just a shitload of fun.

    At least its fun to shoot holes into.

    So, i can’t wait to head what you guys think their record will be this year. You’ll put Dennis to shame.

    Waaaaaaaaaaaaah!

    I finally got a new computer to replace the late not-so-lamented all-in-one. So allow me to be the first.

    Lets look at the Baalke drafts, shall we?

    2014
    1 (30). Jimmie Ward db NlU
    2 (57). Carlos Hyde rb Ohio St
    3 (70). Marcus Martin c USC
    3 (77). Chris Borland ilb Wisc
    3 (100). Brandon Thomas ol Clem
    4 (106). Bruce Ellington wr SCar
    4 (129). Dontae Johnson cb NC St
    5 (150). Aaron Lynch olb S Fla
    5 (170). Keith Reaser cb Fla Atl
    6 (180). Kenneth Ackercb SMU
    7 (243). Kaleb Ramsey de BC
    7 (245). Trey Millard fb Ok

    Even with the unexpected retirement of Borland, a very solid draft. Millard is supposed to be a phenom in hiding. We’ll see. Ward, Hyde, Martin and Lynch will be in the mix for a long time. Thomas is expected to be ready to start this season.

    2013
    1 – Eric Reid – LSU – S
    2 – Tank Carradine – Fla St – DE
    2 – V McDonald – Rice – TE
    3 – Corey Lemonier – Aub – DE
    4 – Quinton Patton – La Te – WR
    4 – Marcus Lattimore – SCr – RB
    5 – Quinton Dial – Bama – DE
    6 – Nick Moody – OLB – Fla
    7 – B. J. Daniels – So Fla – QB
    7 – Carter Bykowski – Iowa S – OT
    7 – Marcus Cooper – Ruts – CB

    This draft had another retirement in Lattimore, but still and all they got a lot of bang for the buck. Reid is a team leader already. Dial and Carradine have made their way into the starting lineup, Moody and Patton have shown plusses as well. The 60 reception man has been a near-bust, but with a new offense, maybe he can do some more.

    2012
    1: WR A.J. Jenkins — Illini
    2: RB LaMichael James — Ore
    4: OL Joe Looney — Wake Forest
    5: LB Darius Fleming — ND
    6: S Trenton Robinson — Mich St
    6: OL Jason Slowey — W Ore
    7: DE Cam Johnson — Va

    Busteroonie. Not much more to say about that one. Looney is the only one left.

    2011
    1. Aldon Smith, OLB, Missouri
    2. Colin Kapernick, QB, Nevada
    3. Chris Culliver, CB, So Carol
    4. Kendall Hunter, RB, Okla St
    5. Daniel Kilgore, OL, Appa St
    6. Ronald Johnson, WR, USC
    7. Colin Jones, S, TCU
    8. Bruce Miller, DL/FB, Ctrl Fla
    9. Michael Person, OL, Mt Ste
    10. Curtis Holcomb, CB, Fla A&M

    One of his best drafts. Hands down. One of the better drafts in Niner history, Most of these guys are still in the NFL, let alone with the Niners.

    One bad draft out of 4 is something to build on.

    You miss Alex Smith? Were Scottie’s drafts better?

  11. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Seriously, RTF? You gonna jump on the black mariah?You guys are nuts. NoFear moans about Nolan and all he did for the team. What was Eddie when he got here. NoFear?

    Daddy;s little minion. A conflict of interest led his dad to GIVE him the team. Here you go, son. Have a football team for your birthday present.

    You guys act like there’s no precedent for this shit yet it stares you in the face every day.

    The word is DOMINANT NoFear. Jesus. Us writers get peeved at this shit.

    I’s\d stack Baalke’s drafts against just about anyone for the last 4 years. Ignore it as you must, Skeevy.

  12. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    The Ravens, Steelers, Bengals and OK the Johnny Footballs.
    1-3
    The Packers, Lions, Bears, and the Teddy Roosewater Vikes.
    1-3 Maybe, if Fox leaves Cutler in over Clausen.
    The Falcons
    1-0 Maybe. Even Matty Icicle might enjoy this one.
    The Giants
    1-0 Maybe. We barely beat them last year.
    The West
    1-5. We’ll see Foles twice if he’s not on IR. Wanna know his record as a starter in the last two seasons?

  13. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Funny is some jerk coming on here and using all the disparaging remarks and insults he’s heard directed at himself by family and co-workers all week on anyone with a different opinion.

    He is the guy who never gets anything right until the week after it happens.

    When pressed he’ll admit he doesn’t know shit about shit except he knows you’re wrong.

    It’s critical to his self worth that he be seen as the guy leading the charge, no matter how many times he has to swap head for tail trying to be in on the upswing to whatever the current populist trend is.

    The spinning is dizzying but usually funny as hell to see a guy so often wrong insist he’s always right.

    The typo shit is hilarious, too. Piss off, waterboy, the adults are talking now.

  14. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Chuckles

    Trying to have it both ways again? Trolling and contradicting yourself?

    You’ve been saying all along with the other apologists that Harbaugh inherited a most talented roster.
    Today you ask this question
    “Were Scottie’s drafts better?”
    Remember Baalke was made GM shortly before Harbaugh was hired as HC. So if Harbaugh inherited that talented roster you must think Scottie did a great job, yet today you’re contradicting yourself.
    Stepped on your tongue again? Which way is it?

  15. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Nolan got some of those guys as well. I’m responding to skeenie’s allegation that he doesn’t know if Baalke is any good,

    If it don’t fit the narrative I guess we throw it away. Fox sports IOW.

  16. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    I think it’s safe to say we can just about always throw your narratives away, Chuck. They never fit anything.

  17. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Damn RT I must be a raving optimist to call for 7-9 and you have ’em at 5-11. Hey we may get 6-10 and both of us still look pretty bright.

    I did make my call right around the time Hendrix was dumped and little has happened to make me think otherwise. New coaches, players naw. Owner a certified tone deaf jerk. Now the QB is playing the clueless rebel for all it’s worth (nothing, less than nothing). He will be scrutinized piteously this year and the apologists better be ready to explain another sub-par year. Show us a pattern of regression again Killer Kap and the knives will be out.

    Love to be wrong but not putting any money on it.

  18. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    I’m ready, Phil. I don’t think Kap’s going to be the problem. The coaching will outshine The Talent Gap for that.

  19. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    I retract my statement. I think it will be a Pick ‘Em between the coaching and The Talent Gap.

  20. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah, keep on praying the Niners will suck for the next 10 years. All because St Jimwas weweased. Boo hoo.

    Gee Phil, gosh! Go for 0-16!!! The toadies here will love you!

  21. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Right RT it will probably be a toss up between coaching expertise and talent on the field. Which will help/hurt us most?

    Wait and see is what folks are saying here without much optimism.

  22. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    If Kaepernick plays like he did the back half of last year? 4-12. If he makes major strides forward? as high as 10-6 if *everything goes right and the Bluebird of Happiness flies up Seattle’s ass. Most likely scenario: baby steps for Kappy, 6-10, lots of angst and fury. Jed goes into a witness protection program after game six. Baalke gets thrown on his little plastic sword at years’ end, and has the gall to act surprised. DysFUNctionality: It’s the only FUN we’re probably going to have this year.

  23. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    I’ll be interested to see “how much” coaching vs execution affects the W-L stat in each game. Will we be good enough in talent dept to make coaching/play calling even an issue? Or will it be clear that we suck so bad in execution that that over-rides any supposed deficits in coaching?

    Granted good execution makes coaches look better and poor execution makes the coaches look worse. Seems like it takes some time to figure this out, to see the pattens/tendencies of the play calling vs the more obvious good or bad execution of players. Which is on tape every play.

    We discussed this at length last year and gradually (to me) it became clear that the execution fell off so much after mid-season that little could be determined about the play calling/game planning/coaching. Injuries played a big part of course. If we stink on the field this year it will be clear right off won’t it?

  24. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Yep Grumpy our kind of ‘fun’ won’t be what we had recently. Hell we’re already having a bunch of fun…like a root canal.

    This year we’re not going into it looking for a bunch of wins on our way to the SB. Like last year heading to big disappointment instead. That’s the ‘glass half full’ take…

  25. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    Here’s a list of the QBs we can expect to see this year:
    Flacco, Rapistberger (settled lawsuit out of court=paid off), Dalton, Johnny Reb, Rodgers, Stafford, Cutlet, Bridgewater, Ryan, E. Manning, Wilson (twice), Foles (twice, maybe), AZ’s whoever (twice).

    Our D minus Fangio, Patrick, Borland, Skuta, Macdonald, Cox, Culliver, maybe Bowman and maybe Cowboy will have lots to look forward to this year.

  26. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Lance Briggs is coming to Santa Clara for a visit on Monday.
    He says he grew up a Niners fan. If Baalke likes him I hope he doesn’t overpay with a deal longer than a year.

  27. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Remember after a bad loss against the Panthers where Kap threw for 91 yards Dilfer weighed in on ESPN that Kap needed “remedial” work on his game?
    Kap didn’t like it one bit and responded that Dilfer was not in the Niner locker room and he didn’t know what the progressions were (simple film study will tell you progressions).
    http://espn.go.com/blog/nflnation/post/_/id/100624/kaepernicks-dismisses-dilfers-critique

    Fast forward to Dennis Gile the alleged QB Guru with the embellished resume who has changed Kap’s mechanics in the 10 weeks since Jan. He believes in what is called TDFB. What is TDFB you might ask? It stands for Trent Dilfer Football system.
    (cue the needle across the record effect) Say what?
    This from the Niner Nation article (link below)
    TDFB is Trent Dilfer’s Football system (TDFB) for “holistic” quarterback coaching. I wrote a little about why Dilfer started developing TDFB earlier this year. While there are many components to the system, the part we’re concerned with is the strong focus on biomechanics.
    Apparently Trent Dilfer is Gile’s mentor and not Kurt Warner.
    Bottom line is Kap is training to Dilfer’s system and methods.

    That is quite embarrassing considering the vitriol Kap showed Dilfer when the original comments were made. That is probably why they attached Kurt Warner’s name to it when it all started
    because Kap would eat public crow for going to Dilfer for help.

    That puts egg on the face of the apologist who made fun of Dilfer classifying him as a know nothing talking head.
    Kap is going into this coming season adapting Trent Dilfer’s teachings.

    http://www.ninersnation.com/2015/3/28/8305073/colin-kaepernick-throwing-mechanics-dennis-gile-quarterback-coach

    Time for an omelet.

  28. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    You are concerned about this Gile dude, and Dilfer is his mentor?? His teacher? What the hell is your point then? Don’t listen to Gile, but listen to the guy who taught Gile what he’s teaching? The one and only Trent? Remember Dilfer’s ‘toxic locker room’ comments? Of course not. You got some ‘splaining to do, quiche boy. What this article proves is you are the egg-wearer for ridiculing Gile while touting the guy that taught Gile his system. Which is it, skippy? Gile is dumb, but his teacher Dilfer is smart? Dilfer was right about the learning Kappy has to do as a QB but was wrong about the toxic locker room? Separating wheat from chaff? Or would it be cherry picking?

    Your posts are getting longer and stupider. The NoFear school of saying nothing with 10,000 words. I guess I should really attribute that to Spitty, but wear the mantle of pompous bloviator with pride.

    DOMINANT. D-O-M-I-N-A-N-T

    v. Something very good. Something that dominates. Like Chuck on this blog. Hyuk! OK, I threw you guys a bone. Carry on.

  29. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Spin spin spin
    That’s all Chuckles does
    Always changing his own stance just so he can be on the “right side”.

    My point is Kap basically went to the guy he dissed as knowing nothing and is now trying to learn his methods. What you can’t seem to see was Kurt Warner was just a smokescreen.

    Still going with the cherry picked statement out of context
    Here is the real story per Dilfer
    “ESPN analyst Trent Dilfer chimed in Monday morning with a similar alarm bell, telling ESPN Radio: “I do think it’s become almost toxic.” Dilfer clarified his stance on Monday night’s “SportsCenter,” saying he didn’t mean the locker room is toxic but rather that the offense looked it Sunday.”

    So Dilfer clarified his stance but being the troll you are Chuckles you always use what benefits your stance on that particular day.

    Keep flip flopping.

  30. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Actually, Chuck, “dominant” is an adjective, not a verb.

    I think the word you’re looking for is: CLUELESS, adj. to exhibit Chuckness in the extreme, to brag about dominance while lying bloodied on the ground.

  31. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Ironic isn’t it? Sensitive killer Kap now tutored by that horrible loser Dilfer. Oh the disgrace. The horror!

    Fine if it works, not so much if not. Looks like the pride of the Reno Kid has gotten in the way of his learning the professional way of playing the QB position. If Dilfer can help him so much the better. Late but better late than never.

  32. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Nice article on Dilfer re: Kaepernick Bullit. Interesting comments from TD about nurturing an NFL QB. Hope he can have a positive impact on our QB.

    BTW that article which appeared in the dark hours late last season is by Oscar Aparacio who hosts the Better Rivals podcast now on NN. Good post.

  33. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    A lot of things that were pointed out about Kap during the season
    are supposedly being worked on in his remedial training.
    The apologists insisted that the haters were making stuff up such as touch and throwing fastballs while forsaking accuracy.
    Give the apologists more egg please.

    But Dildo’s wrong about the toxic locker room comments? How much do you guys get paid for picking cherries?

  36. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Chuckles

    Laern to read!

    Reading comprehension problems again?

    I’s all there in the 3/29 10am post.

    Dilfer explained and clarified that he didn’t say the locker room was toxic.

    But Chuckles believes what he wants to as long as it lines up to his narrative.

  37. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    He backpedalled last year twit boy. That doesn’t change what he said. Oh, I get it. Dilfer can change his mind over the course of a year but something I said 5 years ago is fair game?

    Laughable. Dipshit.

    So, what’s your stance? Baalke has done nothing right? Everything is awful? The sky is falling?

    Skeebs can’t even figure out if Baalke has done any good here.

    You?

  38. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Only one of Baalke’s drafts is old enough for any real attempt to rate and another you’ve already classified as bumbling. 2011 was pretty good but not anywhere near the best of anything.

    +2. No trick to hit with the a first rounder. And Aldon is the only pro-bowler there.

    +1. Kaepernick is a starter and still here.

    +0. Knuckles doesn’t fit the profile for class and he’s gone.

    +0. Hunter, one start in three years?

    +0.5. Kilgore, seven starts in four years and nothing for three of those.

    +1. Miller, starter.

    +2=Pro-Bowler/First-Year-Starter
    +1=90% Starter by year 2

    -.5=wasted pick?

    How many pluses for mid-rounders? That is where the skilled drafters shine.

  39. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    You can’t rate 2013? Is your name Skeebs? Or are you all interchangeable? Funny thing is, after checking, it turns out that 8 of the 10 guys drafted by Baalke in 2011 are still playing in the NFL. Yeah, late round success, skippy.

    No trick to hitting a first rounder? Ask the Browns. Or the Raiders. For the past 10 years. Do you pay attention to football much? Oh, yeah. Besides, Teflon Mike drafted your favorite QB of all time.

    Chuckles

    Can’t read and maybe can’t reason. Those are your problems.

    Dilfer said something in the morning and 5 hours later clarified what he meant and said he was misquoted about the locker room.
    You keep saying this happened during the course of a year when it happened in the same day. Spin, spin, spin.
    Go ahead and keep making a fool of yourself. Everyone expects it and waits for your daily circus act. Send in the troll clown. Here comes Chuckles.

    Chuckles

    You say Harbaugh inherited a team that was talent rich and made to win.
    You also keep pressing the point of how good Baalke has been as a GM and and how well he has drafted.

    So how do you square that with your statement that Tomsula does not have as potent a roster as Harbaugh did and to lower expectations?

    You are talking out of both sides of your mouth again Chuckles.

  43. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Because FAs left and guys retired, skippy. Please try to keep up.

  44. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Willis and Borland retiring were unexpected, skippy. Were they any good? Cox and Cully? I saw one, not both leaving. Bowman’s return to full health is a question mark. The team is aging. They have guys who stepped up last year but they’ve lost a lot of players. What i think is so funny that you are so married to the narrative that you can’t even acknowledge anything done by Baalke.

    Misquoted? Dildo said it on national TV, you ninny. Misspoke? Yeah, that’s it I mistyped that post about Crabs 8 years ago.

    Too effing funny. Everyone in the world can do anything they want. but you have to constantly bust my balls over the most inane shit in the history of blogdom. Going so far as to ridicule shit I posted 5-6 years ago.

    Apparently Chuckles is the only one having trouble understanding. Too bad and too sad.

  46. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    So Chuckles has never paid a compliment to Baalke until now.
    Why is that?
    The fact is that Chuckles has ripped Baalke in the past for drafting Jenkins and others.
    Now he makes a 180 degree turn and thinks Baalke is one of the all time greats.

    All I see are excuses again. The team aging, players hurt, unabale to sign certain players all come with the territory of being GM. This all come1s with the job but you want to give Baalke a pass and then also give Tomsula a pass too.
    So much for that BS bravado of Super Bowl or Bust.

    Maiocco was reminiscing about Paul Hofer one of my favorite Niners of all time. He was one of a kind and it’s good to remember on occasion

    I still have my Roaring Back t shirt featuring Hofer who was the face of the franchise when they weren’t very good. Roaring Back was a good marketing campaign that inspired the fan base.

    Beyond you making that shit up completely, you are right.

    This coming from
    someone who thinks losing your starting QB is an excuse. Funny you cherry pick all day but haven’t lost your yet. It explains a lot.

    Why did Harbs go 8-8 last year? If he’s so good and all.

  49. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Chuckles

    It is clear that all your rants aren’t really Pro Jed or Pro Trent but rather anti Harbaugh. Unfortunately you are too chickenshit to be straight about this.
    You choose to compartmentalize Harbaugh’s 4 years into his one year where the team wasn’t up to expectation and flush away 3 brilliant years. You make very conceivable excuse to absolve the QB of any part in the ills of the team blaming receivers and even Gore’s blitz blocking.
    Furthermore you seem to be one of these chickenshit guys hiding in the weeds, smiling and pretending to be supportive and the coach has a misstep you jump all over him and want his head.

    That about sums things up. The truth hurts but hey you’re nothing but a chickenshit troll and everyone knows it.
    Especially when you try to sell everyone that things are better now than they were last year at this time.
    Keep living in denial and telling yourself everything is better.
    Chuckles daily clown show has arrived.

  51. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    W/L records reflect on the GM, and the meddling owner’s son as well. If Baalke’s team loses more games in the next four seasons than when under Harbaugh, what then? Blame the other coaches? Baalke’s new regime? Blame other players? Baalke’s players?

    Therein lies the minor problem with the coup d’état. Now you’re in charge and you’re the new target and you have to do better than the guy you just kicked out.

    Baalke’s rep will take a big hit if we win fewer games now, at least in the football community.

    Here, we’ll just get another, “it’s over, move on” campaign from the fourteen-year-old girls. For them it’s all about team names and uniform colors, right?

  52. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Great theory, NoFear but it doesn’t change the fact that Harbaugh had a very good team to work with and didn’t quite get it done.

    Whether he could have won it all with a 4 year deal here will forever be debated, but the issues with the roster would be the same. Borland and Willis would be gone. The FAs would have left. Bowman would still be coming off a major injury. And there would be a ton of animosity in the front office if he did stay.

    You act as if Harbaugh’s mere presence fixes these issues. It doesn’t. This draft would have been huge had Harbaugh stayed. It is without him.

    Shit, this could turn out like the Eddie scene where hired and fired coaches and GMs until he got it right.

    If Tomsula goes down in a blaze of Shittiness, then he takes the fall. Whether Baalke is included in the purge is up to Jed.

    Point being, there is still enough talent on this team to be competitive, but this certainly isn’t as strong as the 2012 version.

    Lots of typing there Bullitt yet little meat. You are the tofu of blogdom.

    What was Walsh’s record after 3 years, NoFear?

    21-27.

    Harbaugh?

    36-11

    Great. On the face of things.

    The difference? Well, the obvious one is that Walsh won a Super Bowl after that 3rd year. Now holding a team to that standard is rough, but Harbaugh imposed that on himself by turning the team around his first year. He had to live up to the standard he himself set. Walsh had some leeway as he was building a team from the ground up.

    The other glaring difference? The Niners were the laughingstock of the NFL when Walsh took over. They had nothing resembling talent. What Carroll did in Seattle is much more akin to what Walsh did here. took a team from the dregs to the top.

    The Harbaugh Niners were a talented but underachieving team.

    Big difference there.

    WTF are you yammering about Walsh for? How many years that Walsh “didn’t quite get it done” and then Seifert, with good rosters? And every other HC who doesn’t win Super Bowls every year (that’s all of them, by the way) with good rosters.

    Such nonsense. Thirty-one coaches deserve to be treated like shit by their FOs and run out of town every year according to you? That’s video game mentality not reality. Could only come from a very poor understanding of the subject.

    York will decide if Baalke stays or not? That’s your insight? That’s pretty much what I thought it would be.

  59. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Jesus. You can’t play connect the dots either? Walsh (as well as Carroll) took a shitty team, turned it around and won with it in fairly short order. Jimmy Johnson? Same thing. Harbaugh took a talented, yet underachieving team, and couldn’t win it all with it. See? There’s a point. Harbs missed his window here. He would have been in some form of retooling had he stayed.

    Harbaugh had 4 years with a damn good roster. He ultimately failed. Would he have won with this team this year seeing what has gone on with the roster? The team is still talented, but with the defensive exodus, his moribund offense would NOT get the job done. Better to move ahead with a hopefully more dynamic offense to overcome the defensive losses.

    This is your ultimate fallacy. That life would be rainbow and ponies with Harbaugh here. It wouldn’t. It won’t be without him, but ALL these roster problems would have been Harbaugh’s as well.

  60. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    RTF, the thing is is NO ONE here acknowledges anything other than the fallacy that this team would be in SO much better shape had the coaching staff not departed. That’s total bullshit.

    You guys want to keep blowing smoke up Harbaugh’s ass? Go ahead, but he wanted the Michigan job more than any other. He saw his opportunity and took. Kinda like what Pate did at USC. He rode it hard, left it dying, and moved on. To think Harbs didn’t know the exodus of talent he faced is to disavow he knew anything about his team.

  62. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    So when it was suggested that maybe Gabbert should be inserted
    last year when Kap was stinking up the place the apologist blew a gasket.
    Now that Gabbert has been re-signed for another $4 mil there is just silence.
    Tomsula says Gabbert looks good in practice. Unfortunately that
    does not translate into wins.
    Ravens just signed Schaub for the same except for $2 mil and only one year.
    I think Schaub is a better QB than Gabbert. Having mediocrity as the backup means your hands are tied and you cannot make a change because the of the disparity of ability.
    Niners need improve the QB position as a whole meaning Kap, a competent veteran backup and a developmental QB that could start in 2 years.

  63. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Naw everything is just peachy no need to change a thing. Backup QB, HC, OC, DC, owner’s child? Ferget it we’re good. Things couldn’t be better. I like the way things are going. Arrow’s up!

  64. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Well, we do need a backup, Dumbshit. Schaub is a little better? Who cares? Schaub, Gabbert, and 60 other guys are various flavors of dogshit.

    Nearly EVERY TEAM dies without their starter. But that’s just an excuse. Right, squidly? God, your mindset = Harbaugh’s offense. Rooted in a time long passed.

    Parse away, skippy. Goo to know I run 2 blogs now.

    Put it this way. Who’s the better coach? Carroll or Harbaugh?

  67. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Chuckles saying that a bakup QB does not matter just shows you his football acumen and understanding of the game and of history.
    Funny thing what a decent backup can do.
    And if it doesn’t matter to follow the Chuckles logic why are you paying a “dogshit” QB $2 mil a year?
    Why not go minimum wage and pay to keep a FA?

  69. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Who cares if Schaub is a little better?
    True Niner fans do.
    Schaub has a career QB rating of around 90 and Gabbert is around 66.
    In the past Kap has commented and credited how Alex Smith for mentoring him and making him a better QB.

    Contrary to the Chuckles myopic view a competent backup can get you through the short term and keep your team in contention.
    See Chuckles is so enamored of Kap he doesn’t want anyone pushing him for the spot. Chuckles is vying to head the Kap fanclub with the other fanboys.

    Chuckles says if you lose your starter then you’re screwed.
    This only happens when you don’t give much thought or invest in finding a competent backup QB.

  70. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    You think Schaub can lead us to the Super Bowl? Another gallon of koolaid for squidward.

    When Peyton went down, what happened to Indy? They must be pretty stupid to go 1-15 without him.

    Philly was 6-2 when Foles went down last year. They went 4-4 and missed the playoffs with Sanchez. As backups go, he’s the cream of the crop. Unless you have a high pick that can sit, the good vet backup is a luxury most teams can’t afford.

    2012? Their young QB willed the team through the playoffs despite some lousy play calling and shoddy defense, overcoming deficits in both ROAD playoff wins and nearly the Super bowl.

    Thanks for proving my point

    If you thought ahead and invested in a competent backup then you still have a chance.

    Indy did not have the backup because they dumped their season to get Luck.

    As for the Niners in 2012? What was Kap? A competent backup.
    Exactly my point but you always spin spin spin.

    Last year after he was traded Schaub restructured his contract to about $11 mil a year for 2 years.
    Raiduhs released him and Ravens picked him up for $2 mil for a year.

    Lot’s of Niner fans cringed when Niners traded for Gabbert.
    He does absolutely next to nothing and Baalke signs him up for another 2 years at $2 mil a year. If they don’t have the confidence to put Gabbert into a game that counts how do you pay him $2 mil a year? Or maybe the question is why would you?
    Tomsula says he looks good in practice.
    Until Gabbert shows up on the field and does something in the regular season, this is a bonehead move by Baalke.

  80. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Monday is the first day that teams with new coaches can hold OTAs. The NFL allows teams with new coaching staffs a 2 week advantage.

    Hope some announcement is forthcoming soon.

  81. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Name a team that isn’t out of contention with their backup starting.

    If Schaub starts the whole year for the Ravens, they go 5-11. Yay the Niners with Gabbert? Something very similar.

    Most people understand that today’s NFL precludes using money on a backup.

    Is NE stupid for having Ryan Mallett as their backup? No. They live or die on the health of Tom Brady. As does just about every team.

    1986 Joe Montana plays 8 games with a 6-2 record
    Jeff Kemp is his backup and starts in 6 games and goes 3-2-1
    3rd string QB Mike Moroski starts 2 games and goes 1-1
    Team finishes 10-5-1, wins division and goes to playoffs.
    Backups manage to win 4 games and tie one game and they edge the Rams out who finish 10-6

    1988 Montana plays in 13 games and has a 8-5 record but gets hurt. Steve Young starts 3 games and Niners go 10-6
    Niners edge out Rams for NFC West on tiebreakers but Rams get wild card. Saints also finish 10-6 but don’t make playoffs because of tiebreakers. Niners go on to win second Super Bowl knocking off Bengals

    1989 Montana starts in 13 games going 11-2 Young starts 3 games and is 3-0. Finish 14-2 which is important for home field advantage and Niners win 3rd Super Bowl destroying
    Denver 55-10.

    The coach at SI was Vince Tringali who thought he was the high school version of Lombardi.

  110. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Bullshit, you blamed Kelly and excuses for the Eagles missing the playoffs. Neglecting to note, which was my point, that Kelly got more out of Sanchez than could be reasonably expected.

    The point is whoever the backup is, if we have to play him, we are screwed. As are most other teams. Get it? You think Schaub would make a difference? There’s a reason these guys are backups.

    I’ve only said this 10 times. Maybe it will sink in to your brain after 15 more attempts.then again, maybe not.

    Long gone are the days where you can stash a high priced backup on you roster. Eddie took care of that.

  114. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Having a backup come off the bench to play for the starter might have a similar effect on the team’s fortunes as the starter playing like shit? Or maybe the coaching just goes to shit when the backup QB is forced to play.

    Your ipso facto argument doesn’t wash because it warps the “factos”. Most teams hope to get a backup good enough to not lose the game while filling in for the starter and maybe winning a game or two that the team should have in the bag on paper anyway. eg: Shaun Hill. That’s worth backup money, whatever that is. Nobody carries two starters. At least not for long.

And why Indy cratered without Manning. And Green Bay nearly fell out of the playoffs when Rodgers got hurt a couple years ago. Does ipso facto also explain why a team can score in the 1at half but not in the 2nd? Or is that coaching as well?

    Packers made the playoffs because their backups managed to win 2 games to seneak into the playoffs. That’s called being in playoff contention.
    Colts have been a playoff team for the last 3 years.
    Because you have no football IQ you keep bringing up examples that contradict your premise.
    Packer backups helped Green Bay make the playoffs.

    Kaepernick at QB camp? I thought you said Kaepernick was fine and that it was the coaching that was the problem with his game. Kaepernick busted that blind squirrel theory by just admitting he needed to go to the camp. I’m happy he took the initiative to go and hope we’ll see some positive results in his game this year as a result.

    And Stanton is a good example of what I was talking about. He “filled in” when Palmer was hurt and kept the team in the hunt by not giving games away and winning a couple. He won more than he lost IIRC. So AZ not done without Palmer.

    Chuckles says
    “God you are stupid. I Said one in the past 25 years. Name another one.”

    I don’t have to because you already blew a hole in your stupid rant. Matt Flynn subbed for Rodgers and won enough games for the Packers to sneak into the playoffs two years ago.

    ZERO FOOTBALL IQ = Chuckles

    When you ask others to connect the dots it’s difficult when all that is provided is a blank piece of paper.

    Ok 2 in 25 years. Those are called outliers, not trends.

    Glad I give your life meaning.

    Really. I’m sure your little heart damn near shone when you came up with Flynn.

    Little Sarah strikes again!
