Back to You, Ed

NFL season: Take Two. Let’s try this again.

Where were we? 0-3 and dead last in the NFC West. Next up, at Arizona.

This would normally be an automatic 0-4, but the Cardinals seem to have fallen apart about as fast as the 49ers did in 2015. They seem more likely to battle the Niners for last place than battle the Seahawks for first.

No team epitomizes the crazy ups and downs of the first three games of the season (and of a lot of seasons) than the Jaguars. Win by 22, lose by 21, then win by 37. Who are these guys?

Arizona has become a bit of an oasis for former 49er players. Alex Boone, Mike Iupati, Andy Lee, Blaine Gabbert, Antoine Bethea. Not sure if this is contributing to their shrinking win totals or propping them up from a steeper slide.

We’re only at game four, and Carlos Hyde is already breaking down. This time it’s his hip. Not a good place for an RB to have an injury.

A few years back, some of the players would meet at midfield after a game and form a prayer circle. That created some controversy, so the media naturally honed in on the circle after every game. Not sure if this is still a practice, since the media moved on after awhile to focus on other controversies.

Now we have a new controversy, a pre-game display of some form of protest over something or other. A lot of people who otherwise don’t watch football are tuning in now to see how creative and wide-spread the protests are. The 49ers played a week ago Thursday, before the madness began, so haven’t had a chance yet to compete in these pre-game sideshows.

So, for those of you who like to get your blood boiling on one side of the protests or other, or for the comfortably jaded who just like to observe the spectacle of the human condition, be sure to tune in early. For those who just want to watch a football game, it’s probably best to tune in five or ten minutes late.

And as they say in the they saying department, “This too shall pass.”

    In the 60’S and/or 70’s Playboy had a late night show out of Chicago in their mansion @ Michigan Ave. They started early and died early.

    Gloria Steinem and others wore the bunny suits and mingled.

    I figure there are enough old 49ers on their team that we actually have a chance. Anyway, F-it we don’t have anything to lose by playing it safe. But of coarse we will need to play mistake free football, the question is can we do it. Unlikely but you never know. And, I give Hyde maybe two more games and he will be lost for the rest of the season. To bad too since he is playing pretty good.

    I don’t hear anyone talking about the York’s creating this mess, this situation in the NFL today by caring about money over class morals and ethics. If Eddie was our owner Kaepernick would’ve been fired instantly, especially wearing those socks with pigs with police hats on them.

    Go back to speed reading Emily. Eddie got caught trying to illegally buy a liquor license, remember? I bet if Eddie caught Eddie trying to illegally buy a liquor license, eddie would have fired Eddie. Oh, wait, the NFL did it for him.

    If we can’t get a pass rush against this beat up Cardinals O-line today, we might not get one all year.

    “About 30 49ers took knee during national anthem as team urges citizens to “come together for the good of all.”

    Boooooo!!! Go Cardinals!

    0-4. 4-12 is definitely looking way too generous. Chuck and Rob looking like a Nancy Reagan anti-drug commercial.

  13. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    At end of afternoon games, RT Trent Brown (88.9) and LT Joe Staley (88.5) had top overall grades among all tackles in Week 4, per @PFF.

    At least we got recognized for something positive I guess?
