Stepper Uppers Needed

Jed York checked his mouth into rehab after the owners’ meetings last week, so there has been some quiet time these days. Pity. What will we do for amusement?

Poor young Jed. A year ago, he was the toast of the town. Now he’s just toast. Possibly the most reviled owner in the NFL.

When the blogs came into being, back in late 2007 and early 2008, the 49ers were a bad team. But there was a hope they would get better, which left room to be optimistic about the future.

Now the owner sucks, the FO sucks, and the coaches suck. Hard to overcome that much suckitude. The Niners are a good team probably heading downward and there is very little to be optimistic about. Some are focusing on the upcoming draft, but there is slight chance it will have much of an impact on the coming season.

Draft picks rarely enjoy immediate success. Especially picks outside the top five or ten. The Niners are drafting fifteenth. That’s the spot Bill Walsh traded up to when he selected Jerry Rice in 1985. Even Rice had an up and down first year. And he had Joe Montana as his QB.

The drafts that should be helping this year are the ones in 2013 and 2014. So far, only FS Eric Reid has been a steady contributor from the 2013 draft. Quinton Dial, Quinton Patton, Tank Carradine, and Vance McDonald need to step in and be solid performers this year, or the 2013 draft will be pretty much a bust. And that following on the heels of the complete 2012 bust.

2014 seems to be a far better draft than 2013. Five if the twelve picks spent the year on IR and only the one-and-done Chris Borland stood out as a star, but Aaron Lynch, Jimmy Ward, Marcus Martin, Carols Hyde and Bruce Ellington made solid, if not spectacular, contributions. This is the draft that is critical for the coming year.

But the most need for improvement comes from the 2011 draft — QB Colin Kaepernick. As mentioned in a recent 49erwebzone article, he is the one player who could make the team transcend itself and overcome the mediocre coaching staff. Without OC Greg Roman around to take the blame for Colin’s poor performances, though, Kaepernick will be alone in the spotlight.

    Wow. Pencil you down for 0-16?

    Another doomsday thread.

    You might as well reinstate Dennis. You got nothing on his regurgitated rants. At least he was occasionally funny.

  3. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Looks like Chuck doesn’t believe anyone will step up this year. And you call me a doomsdayer?

  4. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Come to think of it, Chuck, I can’t recall you saying anything positive about the new Niners this entire offseason. All you do is come here and rail against Harbaugh and anyone who disagrees with you.

  5. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    I guess you cherry pick what I write as well. I’ve said constantly that the offense should improve. I mean the bar is on the ground at this point.

  6. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Sorry if not agreeing with your constant Debby Downer threads isn’t accepted.

  7. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    I didn’t say anything about acceptance, Chuck. I just described your negative behavior.

  8. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    I’ve never cared if you agree with me about anything, Chuck. Actually, when you do it makes me nervous, because you’re usually FOS.

  9. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    BTW, Chuck, other than your idiot notion that anybody on the planet can run a better offense than Harbaugh, what exactly is it that makes you sure the offense is going to improve?

  10. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    The fact that this team was dead last in 2nd half scoring. The fact that our 3rd down conversion rate has been among the worst in the league for the past 10 years. The fact that we suck at sustaining drives. It all leads back to situational awareness and play calling.

    I’ve been behind the Logan hiring since he got here as he’s well-versed in the West Coast Offense, and should bring back making plays in space rather than packing shit up on the line.

    Kappy should do better with better play calling as well.

    Negative? It is but to laugh. Your last 30 posts have consisted of how shitty the team will be. Measured in decades.

    http://www.49ers.com/video/videos/1on1_Offensive_Coordinator_Geep_Chryst/14c156ca-23d4-46d9-a787-824b5e7d85ad

    God forbid someone provides actual stuff from the team and not the usual blather.

  11. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Logan isn’t the OC or play caller, Chuck. You need to catch up.

  12. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Isn’t Chryst the guy who called all those Red Zone plays you hated?

  13. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    I doubt there’s a franchise in the league who would hire Chryst over Roman as their OC. In fact, nobody hired Chryst at its OC in the past 15 years, after his Chargers offense finished 30th or so in 2000.

  14. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Roman was the genius for 3 years that no one hired away. We’re better off without Roman despite the superficial naysayers. Go Bills!!

    Yeah, look at the team the Geepster had in SD. Too much work? Like I said, the bar is pretty low for this offense. 12-15 should be fine. 25 in points per game and 20th in yards is not very good.

    Funny thing is, based on PPG, we were 11th in 1st half scoring. Last in second half scoring.

    So you dog our ex-QB coach for his play calling yet think our new QB coach has no input?

    Duh.

  15. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    The point being, we were so shitty in the 2nd halfs of games that we dragged the scoring down from 11th to 25th! That’s some serious suckage.

    But I suppose Harbaugh did all that scoring in the 1st half, and Kappy effed up the 2nds.

  16. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Hey, apropos of the last thread. Bullit, IDK if you heard this, but Jesse Freitas passed away a couple of weeks back. Sounds like he had a pretty tough life after football.

  17. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Grumpy

    Yeah I heard Freitas had passed.
    With memories comes the realization that we are all getting old.
    Still Swann did everything for that team even the kicking and punting.

  18. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    I didn’t dog the ex-QB coach for his play calling, Chuck – you did. For two years at least. I just pointed that out to you since you now think Chryst is our savior.

  19. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    You dog Roman for not getting hired away in the three years he was unavailable coaching in the post season and all and cheer the hiring of guys nobody hired for anything?

    Duh! Indeed!

  20. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    “I just pointed that out to you since you now think Chryst is our savior.”

    I feel compelled to point out the misspelling.

  21. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Yukon humor, I see.

  22. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Unavailable? Seriously You mean like Chud? Or any number of playoff coaches who moved?

    What I’m saying is Chryst will do better than Roman. OK? What part of that don’t you get? Like I said the bar is pretty low.

    The defense carried the team for the most part these last 4 years.

  23. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    I guess we’ll find out soon. Harbaugh’s teams averaged 25+ PPG over his four years. That’s around 11th in the league. The bar isn’t quite as low as you imagine it to be.

  24. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    And that’s despite the fact that Harbaugh was notorious for sitting on second half leads, thus reducing our yardage and points totals. That irritated a lot of us, but the guy won 70% of his games, so maybe he just knew what he was doing.

  25. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah, he sat on 8 first half leads last year, and lost 6 of those games. Brilliant game planning there. It’s called minimizing risk and relying on the defense. Since he only averaged over 25 points once in his 4 years, I’d call bullshit on your numbers.

    23.8
    24.8
    25.4
    19.1

    Eyeballing that tells me his average wasn’t over 25 points, but I’ll let you have that one.

    23.5 BTW. You’re welcome.

    Besides that, Harbaugh didn’t call the plays. So, who gets the credit for the offense? According to Kawakami; Roman, Geep, Solari, and Morton handled those duties, depending on the situation, with the occasional override from St. Jim. No way to run railroad in my book.

    The problem with how all this worked out was during the 2012 run, the defense gave up way too many points in the playoffs. The 49ers were playing under large deficits in every playoff game. Had they been solid defensiovely, we would have beaten the shit out of Balt. But we gave up too many big plays. Much like the Seattle game the next year. That was actually worse. We had Seattle beat but for mental lapses on defense that directly led to 2 easy TDs.

  26. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Fine, Chuck. You and Jed York can keep clinging to last year as a definitive year and give us Tomsula, Chryst, and Mangini as an “improvement.” I’ll stick with Harbaugh, Roman, and Fangio any day of the week and we’ll compare the results four years from now – or probably much, much sooner.

  27. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Harbaugh came into a defense ranking 12th/14th and an offense ranking 23rd/27th/24th in the three years previous. Inherited as some would say.

    His four years had defenses ranked 3rd/2nd/4th/4th and an offense ranking 11th for the first three years, slipping to 20th last year (still better than the years immediately preceding him). Most would call that fairly impressive gains all around. And the W/L record resulting would confirm such thinking.

    Apparently when a backup QB has success it’s dismissed as a stat-meaningless outlier but when a coaching staff who lead the league in wins for three years has an off year due mostly to circumstances beyond coaching’s control, it’s a disaster on a scale requiring the wildly successful head coach and staff be dumped and dumped on.

    Sometimes it’s just plain stupid to keep pushing an agenda. Like after it’s fallen off a cliff.

    Naw I’m not that hard up for delusional jollies. Don’t need to kid myself expecting something different. 8 years of horseshit followed or at least slow painful recovery. Hey maybe some great coach comes in here to clean up the mess in 4 years if we are so lucky. Maybe the current ones are okay. Maybe, not at all a sure thing.

    You would think the Yorks would learn from their past mistakes.
    I’ve seen this movie before and the outcome is not good.

    Jed did and says he improved the team.
    Most sane fans just don’t buy it.

  37. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Yep I would say a majority of fans are rightly skeptical of the Niner management moves recently. This is only prudent and is based on recent history with these owners. No need here to put lipstick on the pig and say “Ain’t she purdy?”. Seen it before.

    What is entertaining is the need to justify what didn’t work with flimsy reason, stats, hopes. Like it never could be the case this is a bad management/owner team with a poor chance of success. Like it just can’t be the case. Just can’t be crap.

    Oh really? Why not? History says otherwise. FACT. This denial of the possibility of regression is what I find entertaining at the moment. Hope addicts are great fun to observe.

    Do I think it will be as bad as what happened when Mooch was dumped? No I think we are in better shape cap-wise, GM-wise and in overall team talent. But same shitty owner essentially which kills hope for long term success or stability.

  38. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Phil

    What should’ve tipped everyone off is Jed/Baalke knew they were going to can Harbaugh and didn’t work to assemble a new staff.
    The so called search where money is no object.
    Based on the improvement from where they started Harbaugh deserved some kind of pay bump even if it’s $500K a season.
    The premise that you only get a raise if you win a championship is pure BS.
    Sadly the Niner culture has has returned to the dark ages rather than the glory years.

    Eddie was the most arrogant guy out there. He fired Walsh over 15 times for failure to win it all. The worst case, 1987, drove Walsh out of the building the next year.

  43. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Harbaugh gets no credit for the defense. That was all Fangio. His offense was helped immeasurably by his defense.

    Even with a +39 in turnovers, the team more often than not kicked FGs rather than TDs.

    Say the Niners make the playoffs 2 of the next 4 years. What then? Wlll you guys still be wailing about the injustice of it all?

    Not going to hold him to the same standard Harbaugh was judged by?
    So much for the talking point that the coaching changes were for the success and good of the team.

  49. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Chuckles

    Show me that quote.

    He said this Oct 3, 2014

    “Are you especially proud of the way the defense has played considering that a lot of people had predicted that they would struggle and now they’re No. 2 in the league, total defense, considering who’s not there and the way the guys have filled in for the absent players, the big names, critical.
    “Yes. Very pleased. Speaks volumes for the guys that are playing, the coaches. [defensive coordinator] Vic Fangio, [secondary coach] Ed Donatell, [defensive line coach] Jim Tomsula, [linebackers coach] Jim Leavitt, do a great job. Really proud. Really proud of [assistant secondary coach] Greg Jackson and [defensive assistant] Ejiro Evero. And the way the guys are playing. They’re playing team defense. Eleven guys playing their assignment and that’s good. That bodes well for us. Then we have a big task this week. This is a stellar offense that we’re facing yet again.”

    As far as I know Singletary was fired because the offense sucked even though he had little to do with it.
    You really do go on fishing expeditions with some of your tangents and assertions.

  50. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Quote:

    Should Fangio take the blame for what the 49ers’ defense has become? Fangio has complete control over the defense – Jim Harbaugh said that in Arlington, Texas after the 49ers beat the Cowboys Week 1.

    Is it Fangio’s fault the 49ers have bad pass rushers and bad cornerbacks this season? He doesn’t draft or sign players.

    What difference does any of this sheet make now. Nobody really knows, not us, not the sport writers, or anybody else, why York did what he did. He owns the team and can do just about anything he wants. Whether it was a power struggle or personal differences who really cares. I am looking forward to another season of 49er football and am full of hope just like always.

    Last year I wanted Odell Beckham Jr. Obviously, we didn’t come close.
    I paired Bruce Ellington up with OBJr’s stats as the next closest option.

    This year, I figure we’ll miss out on Kevin White.
    I’m going with UGA WR Chris Conley as the next closest option.

    Kevin White – 6’3″/215 4.35
    Chris Conley – 6’2″/213 4.35

    Conley is similar in size, and measurables, at a much cheaper price.
    Everything I’ve read on this kid spells success to me.

    He’ll also have OBJr’s former position Coach (Adam Henry) from LSU to work with him in SF.

    Wouldn’t be a bad pairing, if we could land Conley and Diggs IMO.

    When drastic knee jerk changes happen is the time to question the reasoning for the changes especially when you are being sold a phony story.

    I suppose some of us will stop bitching when we get an honest explanation and the truth because this is a dumpster fire.
    I wouldn’t hold my breath because Jed Is trying to ell a tale rather than be straight. I can accept him coming out and saying he’s the owner and he did it because HE thought it best for the team.
    Just don’t tell me this I a better coaching staff top to bottom
    and insult our collective intelligence by telling us you went on a thorough extensive coaching search and this is the cream of the crop. Your new Dline coach was a scout for the team for the last 3 years. We’ve been down this road before and the results have been mediocrity.

    Better? We don’t know. The fans wanted Walsh out after 2 years of his building the team. They wanted Eddie out as well. 4 years? Well, most coaches have a 4-5 year window. He had a talented team. He didn’t clear the last hurdle. They moved on. Harbs got his dream job. End of story.

    Brian Sabean is a GM
    Jed York is the owner
    Sabean is beholden to a lot of people and can be fired.
    Jed can only be removed by Mommy or Daddy.
    Talk about apples and oranges.

    But thank you for illustrating my point.
    Giants were patient and had a plan and allowed it be put in place and flourish. They didn’t fire Bochy when he started out poorly 71-91. 72-90 finishing last and second to last. In 2013
    they finished in 3rd place 76-86 but there was no knee jerk reaction to make a change.
    Giants were rewarded with patience because they knew they had one of the top managers and were smart enough to know he would be hard to replace.

    Especially because the Niners have a new head coach the NFL gives them a two week head start.

    Yes, because good vibes and enthusiasm wins games. Right? There were good vibes and enthusiasm when Singletary was hired.

    Never said thatabout Kappy. The point was we don’t run many plays that require touch passes in the first place, squidlips. How many screen passes did the Niners employ last year? 3? 6? How many did Alex throw? 4? 6?

    Proof is in the pudding. I wish you guys would just stop your bitching about St. Jim.

    Problems with reading and comprehending what you’re reading?

    The article clearly says

    “Touch is an important tool for quarterbacks to have in their toolbox, and though most associate that skill with the short passing game, it’s something that is required for throws at every distance.

    Bill Walsh asserted throwing with touch is most important on passes to the intermediate area where quarterbacks will find it necessary to put the ball over a second-level defender but in front of a third-level defender. That throw is one Kaepernick has struggled to complete to this point in his career.”

    If you learned to read you might actually know something and
    stop being clueless.
    Unfortunately your head chooses to be shoved somewhere else.

    Funny to see the troll who lives under the bridge here mindlessly shake his pompoms like a fourteen year old girl and demand everyone else follow.

    The ‘good vibe’ around Singletary’s promotion to HC came from you all-pompoms-all-the-time guys. The fans more grounded in reality didn’t have that sense at all. And you were there to berate us then, too. Until you finally figured it out and tried to jump into the lead bandwagon going the other way. High comedy fool.

    I’ve been a fan of the Niners longer than all the players and most of the coaches and FO jerks have been alive. I don’t need no stinkin’ troll to come out from under his bridge to tell me how I should be a fan.

    Longevity means nothing if you are an idiot. And, sorry but the shoe fits. . . well, you figure out what to do with it.

    Talk to Bulitt about fandom. He’s always been the arbiter of fan behavior around here. Up until the Harbaugh situation, he’s been all about the rah rrah. Now that St Jim the Martyr has been banished to Michigan, its the Toss Jed bandwagon. Shiny things in other words. You are the biggest fair weather poster. of all though., NoFear. When shit don’t go your way, you vanish like the fog on a hot day. There may be no atheists in foxholes, but there sure are pussies on blogs.

    Yeah, you still hold the torch for Teflon Mike. And now you want Smith back. How laughable is that? What a tool. I’m not telling anyone to Follow what I say. Just acknowledge the fact that you guys are pissing all over the team despite any actual results. If they dry up andf float away in the breeze this year, so be it. You guys can dance around like little girls. Me? Well, I’ll be pissed, but in the end, it’s Jed’s team and if he wants to piss it away drowning in his own hubris, then you can all caper madly and stamp your little feet about how right you are. Yay! We suck! We I called it!

    That and $5.00 gets you a cup of coffee at Peete’s.

    I suppose if the team does well this year though, you will vanish like you did for the 2011 season.

    Bullit, you think that is news? Laughable as well. 80% of our pass plays are curls, digs, and out routes. All of which are predicated on getting the ball in quickly. The rare fade are thrown. Usually to our fullback. Slants and screens are as rare as the dodo. Some require touch, some require speed. We don’t run very many pass plays that need touch.

    Invoking Bill is like the reds invoking Reagan. Fall to your knees and pray.

    Not much funnier than a fourteen-year-old girl having a temper tantrum in her liberal wacko bubble. Dance bitch!

    Dunno about you Skeebs but I’m sure getting my moneys worth. This is worth its weight in popcorn.

    The meltdowns, the hyperbole, the baloney! Hard to buy this kind of entertainment.

    I can think of a country with as poor leadership as this team. Sizzle is off that steak too but its harder to wreck a successful country. NFL team not at all.

    Enjoy

    Kurt Warner agrees that Kap needs to stay in the pocket and not be so quick to bolt. Needs to stay in pocket and go through progressions.

    Believe what you want about Kap not needing to develop any touch.
    Live in denial and ignorance.
    And you wonder why you’re a clueless idiot troll.
