Lame Owners’ Bowl

The Jeckyll and Hyde 49ers return home this weekend to play the Cowboys, hoping the Doctor is in and not the other guy.

The howls have already begun to yank Blaine Gabbert and try one of the other bust QBs on the roster. As though the QB was the only thing wrong with the team. What a hoot.

The past two opponents have put 46 and 37 points on the board against the Niner defense. There’s no QB in DEFENSE. In addition, there’s no WR in OFFENSE. Not the 49er offense, anyway. The team has no skill position players. Carlos Hyde is the only Niner player anyone has to defend against. And he’s averaging 3.9 yards per carry. A stat vastly inflated by garbage time yards last Sunday.

Twenty years ago, Niners vs Cowboys was a big time game. Now it’s on the schedule because each team finished dead last in its division in 2015. Of the two teams, the Cowboys seem to have a brighter future this year than our boys. Much of that rosier outlook is due to 4th round QB pick Dak Prescott, who’s played very well during Tony Romo‘s annual trip to the repair shop.

The 49ers could have drafted Prescott, but GM Trent Baalke, picking two spots ahead of the Cowboys, took yet another CB, Rashard Robinson, who’s been mostly a special teams player this year. When you’re getting your butt kicked in the draft by Jerry Jones, it might be time to consider another line of work.

Dallas does not have a good defense, their O-line is a bit banged up, and Dez Bryant is nursing a hairline fracture to his right knee. So the Niners are catching them at a good time. They thought they were getting Seattle at a good time last week, though, and look how that turned out.


Below are two pics showing the well designed and executed second play of the Seattle game.

The first pick shows Doug Baldwin cutting across the field with Chris Davis already five steps behind him, and Jerome Kearse coming from the opposite direction to politely impede Davis’ path while also drawing Jimmie Ward away from the play.

2nd-play-pass

This second pick shows Kearse perfectly positioned to block Ward, Davis so far behind he’ll never catch up, and absolutely no safety or ILB help anywhere in sight. Antoine Bethea had to come all the way across the field to cut off Baldwin. Presumably, Tyler Lockett and Jimmy Graham had drawn both safeties and Tramaine Brock up the field and far from the action. Easy 34 yard gain.

    I still don’t see us beating the Cowboys. I’m not sure we could be Stanford at the moment. Like the old roach commercial used to say ‘you can run but you can’t hide.’ Well, we can’t hide the fact that our talent level sucks and that our innovative offense just isn’t innovative. And, believe me, I hate the cowboys as much as anyone so this really hurts. 27-13 Dallass. O’yeah, the TD comes in the 4th quarter when the game is already over. What fun!

    Interesting:

    “Blaine Gabbert splits (2015):

    Shotgun: 77.8 QB rating
    Under center: 117.0 QB rating
    Huddle: 87.6
    No huddle: 76.0”

  3. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Seahawks first play had all five eligibles up on the LOS. We answered with our single high safety man coverage.

    On the second play they had similar, only the RB lined up in the backfield. We stayed in man with Bethea the only deep safety in center field again.

    The RB in the backfield caused our ILBs to stay home and Wilson looked to the right side to freeze Bethea until he set to throw to Baldwin.

    Apparently our defense was pretty easy to anticipate as the rest of the game makes clear.

    We haven’t played well in Seattle for a while but this coach and his staff have set a new low as the bar for the next one.

    Seeing as I like that we suck as long as we’ve got idiots dropping to their knees to cry and whine and say look at me, I think it’s funny as hell.

  4. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    NJ49er,

    Liked your post about the newspaper readers. I’m not too sure about the other descriptions but the one on the Chron readers rings pretty true from what I’ve seen.

    By the way, Belichick IS a genius. He can win without a QB.

  5. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Thanks for fleshing out the description, NoFear. I don’t have All-22 access, so am stuck with the TV view, which narrows the focus to the ball. Last I saw, Hodges was inching toward the LOS and Bowman was holding his ground in the middle, maybe spying on Wilson.

  6. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    It can be funny how different things look with all the players on the screen. I think you’re right about Bowman spying Wilson. He dropped back a step or so but stayed focused on Wilson and dropped into coverage only when Wilson began his throwing motion. While Hodges covered the first (only) man out of the backfield.

  7. SpitbloodNo Gravatar says:

    I’m reading more and more fan comments that are ripping Trent Baalke for being a bad GM. It makes sense that Jed York would fire Baalke next instead of his head coach. I mean, can you pay Tomsula, Kelly and another head coach all at once? Eventually, Jed will need to find another scapegoat and if he keeps firing head coaches the finger will only point at Jed. But if he fires the GM, then Jed gains credibility and Jed certainly reads the blogs that are beginning to vilify Baalke.

    Which takes me back to my boy, Harbaugh. Harbaugh knew Baalke was a lemon. Remember what Harbaugh said after the NFC Championship loss? “I want this exact team back next year and I don’t care what the front office says!” Harbaugh left because of the GM, and Jed York smeared him. And this is why you’ll be watching bad football for a decade. On a separate, but related note: Go Michigan! They’re playing Wisconsin in less than an hour!

  8. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Harbaugh just had the Michigan offense line up in a “train formation” stacking 10 players in a long I and then shifted into a run formation. This was done inside the 10 yard line in the red zone and they got down to the 2 on a run play.

  9. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    I heard Chip make the excuse that if the offense goes deeper downfield they risk getting sacked.\
    So let this team die a slow death by paper cuts?

    Expected more innovation in offensive schemes and concepts from Chip Kelly.
    So far he’s mediocre and this matches the lack of talent. I expect his coaching to lift the mediocrity but maybe it’s asking for too much?

  10. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    NN has good stuff. Obvious run D is a major hole and good point here:
    containment players need to be able to read blocks and plays
    to know how to best contain or force a runner. they also have to know where their help is coming from in the secondary (alley and secondary force players). one of the problems is the multiplicity of the defense has the OLBs switching back and forth from force/containment players to spill players (which is completely different). That’s fine to do if you have a seasoned vet like Willie McGinnest or Aldon Smith playing as an understudy at the position for a year. But for guys like Harold and Carradine; they’re new to the OLB position.

    Purcell is awful as a Nose in the base defense. The only thing he is good for is attacking a single predetermined gap. Anything that he has to read and make a play, he gets lost and blown out off the hole.

    Allforfunnplay is an old timer from the Chronicle days. He and Berger used to yap about D-line play for days on end. Looks like he’s still at it.

  12. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Purcell has always been a marginal player.
    There would’ve been more upside to Garrison Smith making the roster who outplayed Purcell in the preseason.
    Instead Garrison is now doing his damage in Seattle.

    Is this one on Baalke or Chip???

  14. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    A lot of our future opponents are undermanned from injuries, suspensions, etc. More so than us.

    There are winnable games but our weaknesses have been exposed. Run D and lack of outside pass rush is on Baalke. Draft capital in his supposed area of strength has been wanting.

    Hodges, Tank, Harold are hyped average players. How much coaching can be done for them to excell. Many of these winnable games can beat us with our run D.

  15. SpitbloodNo Gravatar says:

    Harbaugh wins, 14-7 with two different kickers who missed 3 field goals. The score makes the game seem close. It wasn’t. It’ll be great to see Michigan play down the stretch. By then, most of the 49ers will be thinking about Cabo.

    How in the world did the 49ers let Jim Harbaugh get away? I’ll never know. Actually, I do. Jed York is an idiot and idiots never accomplish anything.

    College football is a better game than the NFL, and Michigan is better than the 49ers. The 49ers suck.

  16. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Unfortunately Spitwad is right. About the history of 49 Win’s demise and who gets credit/blame (York). About the power struggles in the FO and the disastrous choice the owners made. About the Tomsula tomfoolery which gutted the 49 Wins legacy of players and coaches. About York’s loyalty to Balkey and his failure to restock/rebuild the roster. And worst of all about the future prospects of the Niner football team. Sadly.

    Like Bullit I can’t bear to predict scores of games Niners are likely to lose so will not do so until better times/teams arrive. Nothing would make me happier than to be dead wrong about all this of course.

  17. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Well Phil, I’m always scratching my head with these guys too.
    OL improved, Gabbert still skittish.
    Secondary younger and faster, pass rush isn’t there to support them.
    If Dez is scratched, we gain a small advantage.
    Can we stop EzE? Wouldn’t hold my breath after watching the past 2 weeks.
    But, WTF?
    I’ll take an optimistic ‘home game’ approach.

    9ers 27
    ‘Boys 23

  18. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Don’t care much about the score either. If the shit-for-brains owner’s son and the head coach let just one of the overpaid whiners they pay a fortune to to play football, disparage the national anthem and the flag I hope they get their asses kicked. Especially at their home games.

    BTW, the d-line ain’t that bad if they can key the run. The problem in Seattle is they had to defend the air, too.

    And Purcell ain’t doing that bad either.

    From what I’ve seen the d-scheme is more to blame than the players, and that’s no shit.

  19. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Yeh NoFear49er, I didn’t see much to indict Purcell in Seattle either.
    Personally thought DeBuck was getting blown out way too wide and/or, the LBs just weren’t filling. More on O’Neil IMO as well.
    That has to get cleaned up this week or, it’ll likely be another long day in the trenches vs a better OL.

    2 minor reasons to be optimistic perhaps?
    Dez as a potential scratch.
    Dallas’ Secondary isn’t too scary by comparison to Seattle.

    If Gabbert doesn’t take his time and, look for some opportunities down the field, he doesn’t deserve to be holding the starter’s mantle.
    Given the veiled reasons for Kaep not starting, weight etc, I’d suspect there are concerns about his knowledge/ability to run the Chipper’s O or, they’re protecting themselves against the injury liabilities, ala RG III last year in DC.
    Ponder seemed pretty comfortable early on, albeit vs vanilla PS Defenses.

  20. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    49ers players told Jim Trotter “there’s not a whisper of getting Colin Kaepernick on the field” at this time. Blaine Gabbert’s job.”

    At least the donkey show won’t be out on the field, too.

  21. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “In this morning’s 1st half, Frank Gore rushed for 56 yards to pass Marcus Allen, Edgerrin James and Marshall Faulk on all-time rushing list.”

    Go, Frank!

  22. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    For Frank, hope he ends up at least #5 behind Curtis Martin.

    BG has no excuses not to light it up. Dallas D pass rushers are suspended. Expect no less than 50 plus passes today. This is the D that Kap did his best passing against weak coverage a couple years ago to open the season.

    Expect no less than many deep passes to Torrey today. IMO the game priority is to flesh out the pass attack throughout the game. Even if we are ahead.

  23. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Julio Jones: 12 catches for 300 yards. Not a bad day.

  24. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Michael Crabtree 86 yds and 3 TDs today for the Raiduhs.

  25. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    After three straight blow out games, we finally have a competitive one.

  26. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Where is Torrey Smith?
    He is far from being a #1 receiver and a “deep threat”?
    So far no targets and no receptions.
    A waste of $8mil a year that they refused to give to Crabtree

  27. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Bowman might have ruptured his Achilles. Tough break for a great guy.

  28. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Losing Bowman would be a devastating loss for the defense.

    Defense is now getting gouged.

  29. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    NoFear you got your wish I guess. Assuming Johnnie the J knelt to the BLM during anthem. No surprise here for most of us and we have AZ and BUF up next. Think I’ll sleep in for the east coast game

  30. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Along with Harold and Reid, he did, and I did. Eff them! And the eff’n team that supports them.

  31. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Can’t beat a beat up Cowboys team that gave you chances at home. Pathetic.

  32. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Chippy really has these guys playing! They played for the first third of the game and then gave up against a decimated road team. TOP 23 min to 36 min. I love that new can’t-lose offense. Maybe it’s the other team that can’t lose against it.

  33. SpitbloodNo Gravatar says:

    Blaine Gabbert, Chip Kelly, Trent Baalke and Jed York. If I’m Bowman, I’m out for the year – maybe two.

    How could any owner destroy his football team and the team’s reputation this quickly? And why do you guys follow? Michigan played awesome yesterday….except for their place kickers.

  34. SpitbloodNo Gravatar says:

    The Giants are tired but at least they showed heart enough to make the playoffs. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s just one game, though. Winning three championships in 5 years takes it out of you with all the postseason work. But who knows with this team? MadBum can beat anybody on 4 days rest. Anyone. The key to the Giants winning in this post season is Bruce Bochy benching Denard Span and playing Gorky in center. The Giants will want Denard’s on base percentage, but Denard is done in my humble opinion, and the Giants will live and die with their center field production. Bench Span and bunt Panic (who is clearly ailing).

    The Warriors looked disjointed and lost in their first preseason game. They looked soft in the middle (softer than last year) and Kevin Durant’s defense is awful. Durant may be great, but he’s going to have to grow a lot as a player for this “dream team” to work. From what I saw yesterday, the Warriors are going to struggle in the playoffs without rim protection.

    The 49ers sucks and will continue to suck for another decade. I’m not watching. Go Michigan.

    The Raiders are building a winner. Reggie McKenzie knows what he’s doing. He’s no John Elway, but he’s damn good. The Raiders are learning how to win. They are keeping it loose and Derek Carr is becoming a great qb. Khalil Mack reminds me of a young Lawrence Taylor. The Raider / Bronco rivalry will be fun to watch over the next several years. If Mark Davis had a clue (and I should stop myself right there and realize how foolish that statement is to begin with), he’d stop all the talk about Vegas or Texas and build a winner in Oakland so he had some leverage. It took Harbaugh to get Levi stadium built. It’ll take an AFC West Championship and a deep run into the playoffs before Davis has any negotiating leverage.

  35. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Spit it has gone exactly as we foresaw 2-3 years ago on Dear Leader’s Gulag blog when the first rumors of 49 Wins/FO conflict came out = as predicted then by us the coaches would leave, the players would leave, the fans would leave. GM and the rotten FO would stay along with the owner. Some there said it would all be for the best but this team is wrecked. So here we are as we thought. Kaepernick going all BLM/Black Panther and supported by the HC and the owner- that’s a bonus, groan.

    Yes I root on UM led by Harbs AKA 49 Wins because that is where the winning coach went. For the record since he was dumped in the following season and 1/4 we have six (6) wins.

  36. SpitbloodNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah, Phil … I don’t think 49er fans realize how detrimental Jed York’s actions were to the future of the 49ers. Players can get fined, cut and suspended from the league for “conduct detrimental to the team,” but owners get interviews and spin. It’s complete garbage and I’m surprised more fans didn’t walk away from Jed York and the 49ers like I did.

    Regarding Kaep – You and I just gotta disagree there. I think what Kaep is doing has shades of Ali to it and I’m hoping there’s another team in the NFL with an owner reasonable enough to give Kaep a chance after Kaep forces the 49ers to dump him (which Kaep is clearly doing despite Skeeber’s ignorance claiming Kaep just sucks while confusing porn with Alex Smith game film).

    It seems to me Kaep is pissing off a lot of old white people. I don’t see many black people speaking out against Kaep. And that’s how you know Kaep’s right. It’ll be interesting to see what NBA players do.

    Steve Kerr got it right after watching Jim Harbaugh step into a pile of shit. Harbaugh didn’t use his brain, spoke out and then had to basically retract his Kaep comments. Kerr nailed it with support for his players. After all, 99% of NBA players are certified jungle bunny.

  37. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    It’s called extortion not protest.

    Just like Cassius Clay? Not hardly. Clay risked everything he had to protest the draft and the war and it cost him dearly. Goofy hair punk Kaepernick risks nothing. The only similarity is he started to care only when it was his turn in the dock. ie: convenient timing.

    The growing crowd of bleeding-heart anti-American cheering sheep in this country is all that’s at the bottom of this anyway.

  38. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bring this stuff to any place of business and see how long you remain employed.
    Problem is, with millionaire athletes, TV coverage and the like, you get away with it because it doesn’t break any ‘Union’ rules.
    Simply suggests, maybe conforms to some degree, what Romanowski floated a year ago, that Kaep simply isn’t putting in the work to justify his pay on the ‘day job’.
    Sure, go ahead and ‘fire’ me. I take my money with me.
    That’s the rub. How much is this ‘distraction’ worth to an Owner?
    Perhaps it’s simply a waiting game, hoping for a Trade opportunity to arise. Somewhere. Anywhere.

  39. SpitbloodNo Gravatar says:

    I don’t see how it’s extortion. He’s not threatening anyone.

    The fact that you won’t even acknowledge Ali’s name indicates your own racism. It’s as if you can’t fathom a man being born into one identity, rejecting it, and empowering himself by joining a brotherhood (Semper Fidelis).

    If you don’t think Kaepernick is risking everything, think again. Did you see Jerry Jones’ comments about players on his team standing for the anthem? Think other players who are neutral regarding Kaep’s stance don’t see that hitting him with cheap shots during future games may bring them enormous popularity, ie huge twitter followings? Kaep, regardless of the recent ground swell of support by the black community, “is” risking everything. Have you read about Mohamed Abdul-Rauf? He was “black”-balled by NBA owners a few decades ago. Protesting the anthem destroyed his livelihood and career. He risked it all like Kaep. Almost exactly like Kaep. Read about him.

    Black Lives Matter protestors “are” bleeding hearts. Their hearts bleed for their brothers and sisters who are killed in the streets daily, for no other reason than being black. Kaep is standing up for them, and I admire Kaep’s strength. It’s easy to comfy up to the flag and embrace other fellow older white men who know nothing about racism in America. I bet if you were black, NoFear, you’d be singing a different tune. Then again if you were black, you’d probably be a lot like Clayton Bigsby. Do you know why Clayton Bigsby divorced his wife?

  40. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Confirms, not conforms. Apologies.

  41. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    It’s extortion from the standpoint that he can’t be fired Spit.
    As stated, ‘go ahead. I’m under Contract’.

  42. SpitbloodNo Gravatar says:

    Extortion means to use threat or force. He’s not doing either. He can absolutely be cut at any time. The fact that his money is guaranteed for the year doesn’t make it extortion.

    Now if Kaep was saying he has naked pictures of Jed with a donkey in Mexico, and would publish them if he was released, then it’d be extortion. I don’t think Kaep has those pictures, but I’m sure they exist.

  43. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    It puts his employer at a disadvantage.
    Though Jed resembles a donkey is another matter entirely.
    He can’t be fired in the accepted sense because of the CBA.
    His right to protest crosses a line involving his workplace.
    But, because he wants to collect while riding the bench, he’s got wiggle room in his ‘workplace’ to extort or threaten a desired outcome without ramifications.
    Win/Win from his perspective.

  44. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    As they have agreed in the TV marketplace not to show a crazed fan who enters the field of play, they should apply similar practices to ‘non-football related’ practices of protesting the Anthem.
    Same degree of distraction IMO.
    Knuckleheads shouldn’t be afforded a stage for free publicity.

  45. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Take it to the communities where it will do some good.
    On your own time.

  46. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    As AD has done, when you feel it’s not worth your time to play the game you’re paid to play, give back the money, and follow other pursuits as you see fit.

  47. SpitbloodNo Gravatar says:

    NJ – There’s a very distinct difference between extortion and putting your employer at a disadvantage. The two aren’t the same.

  48. SpitbloodNo Gravatar says:

    Why in the hell would AD give a penny back? I know you live on Mars, but have you heard of CTE? Are you aware that other players like Borland, Willis, Mayo, Jake Locker and Jason Worilds, all players who could be playing in the NFL today, retired early more than likely due to CTE? If your dumb ass did a job that jeopardized your health five years after you retired – potentially rending you a vegetable (more so than you are today) — wouldn’t it be reasonable to ask to be paid millions? And if you did expose yourself, would you give the money back once you quit? Of course you would. Do you know why? Because you’re a moron.

  49. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Perhaps in the legal sense Spit.
    But, entertain the insinuation of being protected by the CBA.
    He’s putting the Team at a disadvantage in terms of paying a salary for his services, which are not included with his position as an employee.
    It wouldn’t fly in a normal business situation.
    He has devalued himself, perhaps intentionally, to apply leverage, or threaten the teams ability to receive proper compensation elsewhere.
    Dicey situation? Of course.
    It’s simply not something the League or the Ownership can work around within normal business practices.
    I’m no Lawyer but, in a classic business environment, it would be cause for conduct detrimental if nothing else, First Amendment Rights or not.
    Hard to combat it in this situation because of the Contract numbers involved.

    Like the drunk who runs onto the field, Kaep’s getting TV time to gain attention that the drunk isn’t afforded, because it’s not part of the game.
    Just doesn’t belong in the sports arena IMO.

  50. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Spit, AD quit. He was paid a signing bonus, and didn’t fulfill the Contract terms.
    He owes money back to the team. For the 2nd time.

    “Anthony Davis’ second retirement from the NFL in 15 months will reportedly require him to repay $2.735 million to the 49ers.”

    http://tinyurl.com/z3lm93f

  51. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    It all depends on what the legal contracts are between the players and the teams if money is due back or not. Believing in the rule law (and order) this would seem to be fought out by lawyers representing both parties.

    But regardless of fans supporting protesting players or not it is a distraction for the team to have controversy about their ‘statement’. Despite what players say each team is going to have some degree of conflict over these issues. The Niners have so many systemic problems that ‘distraction by players protests’ are probably far down the list of what hurts this team. Other teams it will be less or more harmful depending. For me it’s a negative and other fans will see these protests as worth it or as a positive even. The owner and the HC are fine with it so this is what we are in for.

    The message of the protesters is for a good cause no doubt. I just think there are better ways to get that message out without causing further division. IMO

  52. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I get the CTE reality too Spit, doesn’t make me a resident of Mars.
    It’s a real concern on their part, because of the sport they get paid to play.
    Like Borland, who didn’t want to subject himself to those potential health threats, AD made the same decision.
    Doesn’t give them the right to take the money when they leave however.

  53. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    The League has been embroiled in this Class Action Suit with many former players.
    If AD, or others, encounter effects after they leave the game, the League is being forced into providing funds to them for CTE.
    Totally separate of what monies are paid prior to them leaving the game.
    If the signing bonus was taken for services to be provided, and those services weren’t provided, he owes it back. Plain and simple.

  54. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    The Niners have become more interesting for their problems than for their virtues. In a few short years the positives have disappeared and the probs have taken over again. This is what it’s come to nowadays.
