As Denny Green would say, more or less: “They are who we thought they were!”
For the second straight week, the 49ers endured a complete butt whipping. Last week Pittsburgh did the honors 43-18, and this week Arizona outdid that to the tune of 47-7.
Colin Kaepernick got the festivities rolling by throwing a pick six on each of the 49ers first two possessions. After that, the 49ers called 13 straight running plays and punted three times. For the day, Kaepernick completed 9 passes for 64 yards and threw 4 interceptions. After the game, to his credit, he took 100% of the blame for the team’s loss. But, let’s face it: the entire team around him stinks, too.
It wasn’t Kaepernick who gave up 43 points last week and 47 Sunday. No, that was DC Eric Mangini‘s bailiwick. Mangini is who we thought he was — a washed up NFL coach who eagerly took the job because nobody else wanted it. Nobody wanted it because nobody wanted to work for Jed York.
The entire coaching staff is composed of guys nobody else wanted. OC Geep Chryst smugly stated after the Minnesota game that he hadn’t even had to use much of his playbook to win the game. Apparently, that playbook only consisted of a couple more pages, however. The Cardinals said it was so simple even Unca_chuck could defend against it.
You can’t really blame the coaches, though. They’re just guys happy to have a job. We all know where the real blame belongs — York and GM Trent Baalke. These two nincompoops masterminded this entire fiasco. They won’t emulate Kaepernick, though, and own the failure. Oh, no, not them. They’ll be hiding from the cameras and microphones all year long, letting the players and coaches absorb the ridicule.
With Green Bay up next on the schedule, another blow out Sunday is probably in the works. The veteran players on the team, guys used to success, all looked disgusted yesterday in Arizona. All the happy talk about team, about the new HC Jim Tomsula, has ended. And only three games into the season. It’s going to get ugly in a hurry.
Tomsula is the one coach who does deserve what he’s getting. He was an eager participant in the shenanigans of York and Baalke. Now he’s stuck taking all the flak for it. He has no business being an NFL head coach and it is becoming more and more painfully obvious with each disaster.
The current team is evoking memories, and not good ones, of the 2005 49er team. One of the worst teams in 49er history. Many on this site expected precisely what we are seeing now, but actually seeing it unfold and knowing we are firmly back in Patheticville, isn’t exactly an uplifting experience.
It beats rooting for Jed York, though. YORK MUST GO!!!
