Nothing But Nyet

The evil New England Patriots come to town this Sunday, looking to beat up on the local boys. Chances are better than good they’ll do exactly that.

The defense finally stopped getting traumatized by opposing teams’ rushing attacks last Sunday. Which is nice, but probably won’t be of much help against the Patriots, who like to whip teams primarily though the passing game. Could be a long day for the defensive backs. Especially the one tasked with covering Rob Gronkowski.

The 49er O-line guys were supposed to be a group that would be good at run blocking, but weaker at pass protection. Through nine games, however, they have given up only 21 sacks (16th in the league), but the rushing game is more likely to be led each week by the QB and not the RBs. Carlos Hyde seems to be getting worse each year, not better.

It’s hard to figure out what the game plan is for the team. They’ve lost eight in a row, will probably tie a franchise record Sunday by losing their ninth in a row, and yet we’ve heard nothing much from the GM Trent Baalke, nothing at all from the owner Jed York, and each week the HC and DC get brutalized in the press while stoically talking about assignments and execution. Is there anyone in the building who’s accountable for anything?

The stadium has been half-empty going on two years now, but might be more than half filled for this game. Not to see the Niners, though. Many will come to see the Patriots and some will come to see former owner Eddie Debartolo, who will be honored at half time for his recent induction into the Hall of Fame.

If Jed York is part of the ceremony, you can bet he’s going to get booed. Can the little dipwad take it? As Bogie would say, “You’ll take it and you’ll like it.”

Right. About as much as Peter Lorre did.

    Failure to execute is the mantra we hear week in and week out.

    Are the players accountable or the coaches?

    A coach can motivate an average player to over perform so this is on Chip not getting the most out of what he has. Chip is the offense savant and can’t integrate Torrey Smith his second highest paid asset to even be mediocre. If Smith is a decoy the Niners are wasting $8 mil a year for nothing.

    In Philly Chip got rid of Shady McCoy, one of the premier RBs in the league and brought in DeMarco Murray a north/south runner who he tried to run wide with crap results.
    Murray had 1800 plus yards with Dallas and fell to 700 mediocre yards under Kelly at Philly. This year at Tenn, Murray is about to break 1000 yards with 7 games to go.

    That seems to be a fatal flaw with Chip. He expects the talent to adapt to his system and seems reluctantly stubborn to tailor his system to the talent on the roster. That’s why Chip struggles to succeed in the NFL.

    Torrey Smith has rarely caught a pass this season but might be out of the Pats game with a shoulder injury.
    He had started 89 games in a row.

  3. WinderNo Gravatar says:

    It’s all game plan and execution. Our QB is the # 1 culprit(sorry spit) and when one would rather have A.Smith back under center you know just how ‘F-up our current situation is.

  4. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Mike Shuman: “I played on 1978 49ers that went 2-14 and lost 9 straight. But head coach Pete McCulley was fired during streak so he doesn’t hold record.”

    Looks like Chip can grab the all time record in his very first year!

  5. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Pathetic. Embarrassing. Sad. And well deserved.

  6. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Show of hands, who hurts us worse today, Bill Belichick, Tom Brady, LeGarrette Blount, Dion Lewis, Michael Bennett’s little brother Martellus, Julian Edelman, the Ghost (Stephen Gostkowski), Chips Kelly, Jim O’Neil ?

    Maybe a race between our total points scored and NE’s PATs.

    Enjoy all the luck you deserve today, you America-hating protesters and fans of same.

    They are honoring Eddie D for his induction into Canton. Lets see what Eddie has to say today

    Eddie has already commented that Walsh wouldn’t stand for any antics during the anthem.

    Would love to be in the room when Lisa DeBartalo and Lil Jed greet each other.

  8. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    In the first quarter of the early games 3 extra points have already been missed. The Lions just missed another XP so that’s 4 missed XPs for the day.

    This rule has become a factor and has made the game more interesting for something that was taken for granted.

  9. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Vikes just missed their XP so that’s 6 for toady so far.

  10. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    toady should be today

  11. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Jags just missed their XP so that’s 7 so far before halftime in the early games.

  12. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Big cheer from crowd for Brady to Edelman TD. That’s the spirit!

  13. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    The Niners have Belichick stumped now. Try as he might to take away what the opposing offense does best, Dawson still gets it done.

  14. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Kaepernick sacked by four different defenders so far. Two for the DBs and two for the LBs. Can they run the table and get every defender one?

  15. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Without Chandler Jones the NE pass rush has been anemic all year until today. Is dimwit holding the ball too long? Can’t find his 2nd and 3rd receivers? Are they oline or QB sacks. If good coverage dimwit should have thrown it away.

  16. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    NE has a mediocre D this year. Is the NE DC a racist for doing this to poor Kappy.

  17. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Dimwit still cannot deal with pressure.

  18. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    …and that’s 2 DB, 3LB and a DL sack, so far. Yeah, seriously.

  19. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    3 point deficit at halftime.
    Then the opponent puts it in hyperdrive and pulls away with the offense too inept to respond.

    After halftime Kap goes into a streak of missing 10 straight passes.

    On the postgame show a stat was shown that Kap has a completion perecentage of 38% in the second half of the games he’s played in.

    It has been suggested that Kap does well with the 15-25 scripted plays to start the game . After that it all goes to hell.

    In the press conference post game Kap went back to the same old line that the team didn’t execute.

    In the words of Coach John McKay when asked about the Bucs offense

    “* On the execution of the Bucs offense: “I think it’s a good idea.”

  20. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Answers please. Why all the sacks. His ability to sense where the pressure is coming from and who is the hot read and throw the FFFFFFOOOOOCCCKKKING pass into the void the D exposes.

    Who does Gabbert deal with this. Has it been 5 games for BG and 5 games for spit’s dimwit. Evaluation coming?

    Don’t get me wrong. Objective numerous uno is win no more games this season. But out of curiosity,,out of all objective measure how do BG and dimwit compare against each other and their peers.

  21. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    From Cohn:

    OFFENSIVE LINE: D. Allowed five sacks. After one of them, every offensive lineman except the rookie, Joshua Garnett who helped Kaepernick up, turned their backs on Kaepernick and walked away from him

  22. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bakkentom the bottom line is this.
    Kaep has always been a run-first QB.
    Harbaugh/GRo couldn’t cure him.
    Thus far, Chip is seeing the same challenges, same bad habits.
    He’s frantic, doesn’t digest Defenses quickly, holds the ball too long and folds.
    How many times have we seen him look for a back-door escape and run into a sack? He simply doesn’t doesn’t understand what the O-Line is doing around him.

    No O-Line in the NFL can be blamed for a QB that isn’t decisive.
    His accuracy issues continue, and often deteriorate further, when he gets ‘happy feet’ and is unsure what to do.
    A few more weeks of suffering and, with any luck, he’ll settle somewhere else in March. (NYJ)?
    Enough is enough.
    I’ll call him, and maybe Eric Reid, Comp Picks in waiting.

  23. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    At this point, depending on the slot we land in come April; exchanging Reid for Peppers wouldn’t be a bad move, if we get the chance.
    Stay in the loss column for 6 more weeks, hope to be Top 3, shoot for Myles Garrett, Jon Allen, JPeppers.
    Having Cleveland win one along the way wouldn’t kill me either.
    We simply need to lose to Chicago and the NYJ.

  24. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Romo considered a trade to Broncos or Cardinals. Who wants Kap.

  25. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    QB position is too complex for the typical football player. Look at Dak Prescott shine.

    Deja Vu with 2012 Kap. Dak has better oline and better receivers than Colin. Safe thing to do is emulate Dallas and build a dominant supporting cast.

  26. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Use BG as the bridge QB while the building happens.

  27. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Kap is Coach Killer. Every game reinforces my assessment of FO intentions. Tanking without leaving fingerprints. Kap is leading the team to the promised land.

  28. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    They need to give Ponder a chance.
    If nothing else just to evaluate him.

    Also the WRs only caught 4 passes with only 2 actually making catches.

    With Torrey Smith on the shelf the WRs failed to step up their game and show they belong. Backup WRs are fringe NFL players.

    Very bad FO judgement in assembling this group. That’s why the Niners suck.

  29. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit my new favored development QB Pick is Zach Terrell at WMU.
    He’s the guy throwing the ball to my preferred WR, Corey Davis.
    Davis might make it to RD2, Terrell might be had in RD5 or later?
    Too early to tell until the Combines are completed.

  30. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Also hard to fault the WRs when the QB can’t deliver the ball consistently either.
    Kaep continues to suffer with ‘touch’ and accuracy.
    Rarely makes any significant progress between the hashes either.
    He simply isn’t comfortable as a passer IMO.

  31. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    How is a comp pick figured for Kap. Huge money this year. Dogshit next year. A 7th in 2030 may be all we get.

  32. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    NJ

    Even Chip said in his post game presser that the Niners had no receivers on the roster with Smith out to warrant double coverage.

    The lack of a reliable receiver that you can depend on in third down situations went out the door with Boldin and Crabtree.
    Crabtree and Boldin have caught 100 passes combined this season for their teams and have combined for 9 TDs.

    Again this is on Baalke who kicked these guys out without heir apparents in place.

    Eve Frank Gore remains productive after 2 seasons removed from the team. Currently he has 840 yds total offense and 7 TDs scored.

    My point is Baalke didn’t negotiate in good faith with these 3 who all have said they wanted to remain with the Niners.
    There is a reason why the Niners have this massive amount of cap space and the roster reflects this.
