Bills 45, 49ers 16

Noooooope! Neeeeeeeeeeext!

The 49ers’ washed up, overpaid backup QB led the team to a 45-16 walloping in Buffalo Sunday, completing 45% of his passes, getting sacked three times, fumbling once, producing the lowest point total of the year, and generally reminding everyone why this chump was benched in the first place.

Not that the QB actually matters this year. The defense allowed 312 yards rushing to the Bills, nearly breaking the mark for the worst effort in Niner history — the 324 yards given up to the Rams in 1958.

That’s five straight losses for the 2016 49ers. It’s safe to say that team owner Jed York is already hard at work crafting this year’s season ending apology for yet another doofus performance from the desk of himself.

Rookie DE DeForest Buckner had two sacks, and his fellow DE Arik Armstead had one. All three sacks were for zero yardage lost, meaning Buffalo QB Tyrod Taylor was tackled at the line of scrimmage and not deep in his own backfield. Looks good on the resume, though. Especially when you’re part of a group that got run over like crash test dummies.

Time Of Possession was the usual 25 minutes for and 35 minutes against, a Chip Kelly special, delivered each and every week with astounding regularity. The team was also a wimpy 3-13 on third down conversions and 0-2 on fourth down.

The backup QB’s kneeling mate Eric Reid was scorched, torched, laughed at, and buried by the Bills’ running backs and receivers. Another Trent Baalke first round non-entity on the path toward getting a poser’s job in the private sector. The other doughnut who starts the game on his knees, OLB Eli Harold, actually belongs in the supplicant position. This third round bust has not made a single play in his year and a half of taking up space on the roster.

On the plus side, Phil Dawson made all three of his field goals. And the backup QB’s hair did not seem to suffer any damage from being squeegeed into his helmet. We’ll await a Monday report from his hair dresser.

    You remind me why I turned this one off sometime in the 4th Q. Terribly uninspiring but as usual the first half was good for a moment or two. It must be other things than football played by our guys that keeps us coming back. The imaginary ‘eggs’ of Uncle Mervin York perhaps? Actually at this point it must be the pleasure of discussing the smouldering wreck of our current version of the Niners. Gotta admit we have a lot to discuss.

  2. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Aaron Lynch was also a no show in the stats.
    Eric Reid is looking for the big second contract but I don’t think his play has earned that consideration and his kneeling before the game has brought him added interest to his level of play.
    Reid has been an underachiever for being a first round pick at safety who hasn’t shown any improvement for all the years he’s been here..

  3. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Reid was better as a rookie than he has been since – partly because that team had a better front seven and pass rush to protect the secondary, and partly because Reid himself never really has gotten his confidence fully back after the concussions.

  4. SpitbloodNo Gravatar says:

    Heard somewhere that the 49ers didn’t even look like they were trying. And that’s only, what? 5 weeks into Chip Kelly’s contract? The problem with the organization might not be the coach or the gm.

  5. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Next weekend we get the number one pick rookie phenom who’s more of an up and down guy this year so maybe we get lucky at home…, not freakin’ likely gov’nr, as they are coming off a bye giving them plenty of time to get familiar with the keystone kops from santa klara show.

    Although the Bucs are having trouble keeping a tailback serviceable Martin may return just to get on the gravy train we’ve been providing RBs. We may be able to take advantage of an epidemic of rib injuries caused by days of side-splitting film analysis.

    The week after we are guaranteed, or at least more likely than not, to come out of it without another loss, with the possible exception of scapegoating losses in personnel.

    The mod-squad will have to make an appearance at somebody else’s game to log the requisite time on their knees before the cameras properly disrespecting fans and country.

    Continued bad luck, boys.

  6. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    NoFear in case the Niner season is not silly enough you might enjoy breathless media articles such as our boy Kaepernick discussing why he’s been wearing Muhammad Ali socks. Gripping. Or at least more relevant (!) than what Uncle Mervin York is serving on the gridiron for past several years. Because the days of 49 Wins just wasn’t enough for him to offer us.

  7. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Wonder why the Niners were so bad in the second half?
    Kap was something like 4 for 17 which means the offense unable to stay on the field and the defense being exposed by staying on the field too long.

    Some Bills players spoke out and said they were convince Kap was washed up and could not beat them with his arm

    http://nypost.com/2016/10/17/bills-pile-on-terrible-colin-kaepernick-hes-done/

  8. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Yep we are going to soon find out if Kap has enough left to win with this O. One game indicates ‘maybe not’. We will see over the next 4 or 5 if he’s done or if it’s just rust causing the poor passing. Or is it normal for him? I think it’s more likely he is done and we saw peak Kaepernick in 2013. So maybe we will have Ponder for the last 6 games? And Kap can leave the team and become a community organizer.

    But the Bills players may be more offended by dear Kappy’s sideline antics than accurate in their assessment. They did have the right strategy of forcing him to beat them passing- which he couldn’t.

  9. SpitbloodNo Gravatar says:

    The 49ers suck. The NFL sucks. NoFear sucks. Jed York sucks. Jim Harbaugh doesn’t suck.

  10. SpitbloodNo Gravatar says:

    I’m 100% positive NoFear directed this. He probably wrote, produced and directed this.

  11. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Looking at the first quarter of the Buffalo game the things that stand out the most are our inside linebackers are not very good, the scheme buffaloes me, the coaching apparently has the players confused on their responsibilities, motion by their offense strikes panic into the ranks and we can’t score more than a FG even when starting the drive from the Buffalo 28.

    Their offense sends a guy in motion and our down guys start shuffling and pushing their linemates over to a different spot. The inside linebackers start hopping, especially #57, and more often than not he’s hopped to a bad spot as the ball is snapped. Not that it matters that much because even when they’re in the right spot to make a play they usually don’t or whiff on the tackle.

    Our odd looking 2-4 nickel defense begs the opposition to run, so it does. Brooks is unblocked and plays for the sack instead of the ball and McCoy gets the toss and takes it in for a score, past Bellore and Armstead. Right out of the scouting/film study session.

    If not for Buffalo’s RG forgetting to block Armstead so he can knock the ball out of Taylor’s hand as he tries to handoff to McCoy we don’t even score the three in the first quarter.

    NJ49er,

    On that no-call in the Seattle-Atlanta game, the back judge is even closer than the side judge and both are focused on the players. They didn’t miss it but they have discretion on those judgment calls so they use it to turn the game when they so desire. That particular missed call may just be bad enough to tip the scales on the competition committee to move PI calls to the reviewable.

    On the lucky sheep, it was an obtuse reference probably better left dropped.

  13. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Welcome to Spitblood’s life as a bored troll.

    It would be humorous if I wasn’t forced to pay for it.

  14. SpitbloodNo Gravatar says:

    NoFear: Can you define irony for me? Of course you can. I’ll save you the trouble of defining it for all of us. Here’s what I’m gettin’ at.

    You’ve implied several times now that you pay for me, and I assume you’re implying I’m on welfare or something so you, as an American taxpayer, are paying my way. Is this correct? If it is, the word irony comes into play because as a member of the military, I actually pay your salary and pension, not the other way around. So I have to pay for you and this excessive, bloated waste of taxpayer dollars known as the US military. I pay for you…. a million times over. I pay for ridiculous wars like Iraq and Afghanistan that mindless military drones like you advocate. I pay for all the money we’re throwing at Syria to defeat Putin. It’s all a ridiculous waste of time and money.

    Do you know what the biggest myth in America is today? It’s the myth that freedom isn’t free. Freedom is free if you’re a peace loving country. Around the world today there’s about 140 free countries, and only a small number of them have large militaries. Those countries without militaries enjoy a much better standard of living for their citizens, they aren’t threatened by anyone, and their tax payers don’t pay out the arse for a bloated, ridiculous military.

    In the last fifty years, only two countries have been invaded (by other countries than the US). That’s the Ukraine and Kuwait. Kuwait was liberated by the US, because of our bloated, ridiculous military, and the Crimea has gone back to the Ruskies. Aside from those hostilities, nobody is invading anyone unless they’re invaded by America because we want to take their resources.

    Freedom is definitely free. We use the propaganda “Freedom isn’t free” so we can justify building a huge military to steal from other weaker countries like Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria. The 911 attackers were from Saudi Arabia. Why again did we go into Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Either way, I pay for you…. big time. You’ve never paid for me.

  15. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Thanks for the followup NoFear49er.
    Agree with you regarding the PI reviewability as well.
    Huge game changers every week it seems.

  16. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    NoFear gives us (pays us, lol) a couple nice football analyses to aid our understanding of the flaws in Niner/McNeil D. And also in the officiating flaws in non-calls on PI- which should definitely be reviewable. Enough with the game changing calls in hands of the refs. As NF sez = hopefully this latest indulgence of Sherman/Seahawks by refs will force the relevant committee to make these important calls reviewable.

    The other “gift” (thank you sir) from NoFear is the details of how and why we suck in our D schemes. Can we get a functional DC please?

  17. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    “Lowell Cohn: 49ers are laughable and it starts with Jed York”

    Another ‘payment’ on the very large debt this team owes us from Lowell Cohn:

    http://www.pressdemocrat.com/sports/6201808-181/lowell-cohn-this-49ers-mess

    Lowell in a fatherly manner advises York to step aside from CEO of the failed franchise for his and for the team’s good. We all know this to be true and now the largest voice so far is saying the same thing. It’s a start, let’s keep it going.

  18. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Spitblood, you are an ignoramus.

    The instability throughout the world is bordering on catastrophic. It is in a state of perpetual conflict. The USSF is running UW and FID operations all over the world. We’re operating in somewhere near 150 countries today. Many of the countries you suggest have no military are protected by the US. We’re paying the bill, too. Another bill I have to pay for you.

    If you think war is the undoing of this country why do you keep voting in the democrat war mongers?

    Just lately in our history, off the top of my head, WWI, WWII, Korea, Cuba, Vietnam, Somalia, Serbia, Libya, Syria, ISIS are democrats’ doing.

    You don’t realize any of it living in your liberal wacko bubble. Get your head outta your ass. Wake up. Get a job. Join us in the real world.

    Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son.

  19. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The big lie from lil Jed earlier this year

    “I talked to my uncle this morning for a while,” York said in January shortly after the firing of Jim Tomsula. “He texted me around 5:15. I called him around 5:20 when I got up and I don’t think there’s anybody better to help me as a mentor, as somebody that’s been there, as somebody that’s done it than my uncle. We talked for a long time this morning. And I know that if I need direction, if I need guidance, if I need somebody to help, I’ve got a person I think is the best owner in the history of sports that’s on my team, that’s on my side, that I can turn to anytime.”

    Jed York’s name was noticeably absent from Eddie DeBartolo’s Hall of Fame induction speech in August.

  20. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit how good would it be for the DeBartolos to engineer the removal of CEO York? Eddie D’s influence has been missing from the team for far too long. And what do we have to show for it?

    Zip unless you count embarrassment, humiliation and Failure. We deserve better and so does the legacy of Bill Walsh, Ronnie Lott, Joe Montana and our heroes of old

  21. SpitbloodNo Gravatar says:

    That’s hilarious and shows you aren’t sincere, but more political trying to justify war. Democratic war mongers? So laughable. John McCain is the biggest pusher of the American War Machine out of anyone, ever. Rumsfield, McCain, Cheney, Bush, Rush Limbaugh? They all love war and push it any chance they get, and everyone knows it. Show me one Democrat who pushes war? The reason John McCain loves war so much is because he’s tied to all the Arizona pork barrel defense contracts that create bridges to no where. What about that one air fighter that was on 60 minutes. 150 billion over budget, built in Texas? Is Texas a red or blue state, NoFear? I forget. You’re an idiot.

    You’re right, our military is operating all over the world, trying to de-stabilize governments so they are weaker and we can pillage their treasure. Did you hear about the recent CIA member who confessed to talking to Turkey military members about an uprising against the Turkish government? That’s the kind of crap our military and “intelligence” dollars get us. We de-stabilize countries to take their wealth – and then we try to tell the people back home we’re doing it in national interest, to help keep our people safe. A perfect example: Dick Cheney, Halloburton and the Iraq war with “Weapons of Mass Destruction.” But it happens on a smaller scale, daily. And it’s by far the worst part of America. It’s a disgrace.

    You’ve been dooped, Private NoFear. The trick’s on you. We’re safe. The military is designed not to keep us safe, but rather to steal from other countries. There are honorable soldiers, no doubt. But go read John Krakuer’s book about Pat Tillman. Tillman knew he was all propaganda and a tool for the goverment. He wouldn’t have enrolled again if he knew better. Even now he’s still being used as military propaganda. Go read his mom’s thoughts on our US military.

    What did Eisenhower warn us of? Beware of the military industrial complex? Too bad war mongers like you, NoFear, didn’t take the good general’s advice.

  26. SpitbloodNo Gravatar says:

    Get ready for 4 years of Hillary Clinton. A lot can happen in 4 years, that’s for sure. How much more liberal will America have become in 2020. 2020? That seems like a long time away, doesn’t it?

    First thing that will happen is Hillary extending Obama Care. That’s a good thing. Then Hillary will nominate judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court, extending an already great Obama legacy.

    Man…. life’s good. Guaranteed 12 years of progressiveness in the white house. And we’ll probably get the Senate, too.

    Scalia’s red seat turns blue…..

  27. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    NoFear49er there appears to be some drama discovered with that non-PI call related to Sherman and Julio Jones –
    Hawks Fan suggesting NFL deliberately doctored video of the play to remove a head slap from Jones on Sherman at the start of the route.
    Can we continue our narrative on the conspiracy theory involving Officiating?
    This link has the piece from PFT –

  28. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    All these dubious vids and doctored versions of reality in the NFL NJ are having a similar and negative effect as in the political realm = disgusted fans and voters who figure its all BS. And tune out watching games or taking them too seriously anymore. I think this as well as the anti-American follies re: the Anthem are cutting viewership. But paradoxically in the case of voters it may have an opposite effect of increasing turnout at the polls. People want change. Still say we have seen Peak NFL and its now downhill.

    Re: Niners seems to be uniting their fans around the wholesale removal of Balkey with increasing negativity concerning Kap, York, the DC+OC and even Kelly. I think you are wise to focus on individual players and coaches who can make small changes for the better.

  29. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Yeh Phil, the ‘on-demand’ world is exposing much of what took place behind the media scenes for years I guess?
    As you guys know, I’ve defended Baalke as the only ‘football guy’ in the FO having to work for clueless wannabe Ownership-types.

    Having benefit of hindsight since he recruited Harbaugh it’s a toss up as to whether Paraag created problems in that relationship or not.
    Constant HC changes don’t do any GM any favors IMO.
    I simply can’t stand the dynamic, or the track record, of HC changes since the York’s took control of this Franchise.
    No progress is made when everything continuously gets reset with new Coaches.
    I’m at the point now where it simply won’t matter who the GM is, as long as the York’s call the shots.
    Maybe, with a little luck, we’ll have a good old fashioned DeBartolo/York power play to break this stalemate of Ownership ignorance.
