49ers 31, Giants 21

Rookie HC Kyle Shanahan finally got his first win Sunday, trouncing the hapless New York Giants. Rookie QB CJ Beathard also got his first win, while enjoying the rare treat of a clean pocket and a break from getting pounded each week.

With the win, the Niners dodged the bullet of an 0-16 whifferoo season and a shot at breaking the record for most consecutive losses, set at 13 last year by Chip Kelly‘s lifeless team.

The win effectively ended any remaining drama to the 2017 season. From here on out, the 49ers will just be a bad team playing out the string to yet another bleak year.

Many fans will be anxiously awaiting the debut of newly acquired QB, Jimmy Garappolo, which may occur after next Sunday’s BYE week. Beathard won’t be in that throng, but at least he put up one game’s worth of good tape for the 2018 season.

Joe Staley said after the game that the win felt as good as the NFC Title game. He failed to mention which of the three straight trips the team made to that event, presumably the one that led to a Super Bowl appearance. At any rate, it vividly demonstrated just how far the bar in SF has fallen and just how fast it got there.

Sorry, Joe. What a crock of shit.

The loss vaulted the Giants over the Niners and into the second spot in next year’s Draft. It’s unlikely those positions will change over the final six games of the season. The Browns, Giants, and 49ers are all firmly in the NFL caboose, with no other teams remotely close in awfulness.

At least the team will have two weeks to familiarize themselves with what winning a game feels like. It will quite likely be the high point of the season, so enjoy it boys. Seattle comes to town after the BYE, and the taste of defeat will no doubt resume its inexorable stench.

    In the crock-o-shit department;

    It helps more than a bit that they played a team who refused to play defense. JPP and Harrison are among the best in the business for QB pressure and run stopping, and Jenkins is more than capable of shut down coverage… and tackling. Merry Christmas Messrs. Lynch and Shanahan, it was indeed an early gift.

    No doubt the pro kneelers are back-slapping each other so hard they will need the bye week to recover.

    Thanksgiving weekend should be fun, depending on one’s point of view.

    Actually it puts us third in the draft for the moment at least – if we tie the Giants at 1-15, they would second since we beat them yesterday.

    More on Marquise Goodwin

    http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/21405058/kyle-shanahan-san-francisco-49ers-lauds-marquise-goodwin-was-hurting

    That 83 yard bomb was a thing of beauty and something Torrey Smith never delivered.

    Goodwin has guts and moxie and maybe this will focus him into a leading receiver role now that Garcon is down for the season.

  4. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    So, it looks like we’ve replaced a GM who brought injured guys here and they never got well, with a GM who brings healthy guys here who immediately get injured.

  5. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    And replaced an HC whose team was happy and content to win two games a year with an HC whose team is happy and content to win one.

  6. winderNo Gravatar says:

    I don’t think anyone in the organization is “happy and content” about a 1-9 record. I think they are just “happy” to get that 1st win. It really is pretty obvious.

  7. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Kyle Shanahan: “I think we’re a pretty close team and I think we’ve gotten closer through adversity. I hope this can make us better through adversity also.”

  8. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    I never expected much of this season anyway. Where we are twelve months from today is much more important. The draft and free agency this Spring is going to be a huge deal.

  9. NoFearNo Gravatar says:

    Either way, the attitude these days is a far cry from the screaming mimis who got fired up when Harbaugh lost a (that’s one) game. Nowadays it’s fine to lose as many as all the games as long as we can hail Shit7torm as the citizen of the year for reminding all the brainf*cked how much they should hate America.

    Lots of things I’ve never heard of before this year. Like praising a coach who can’t win a game unless it’s handed to him and a GM who didn’t remember to hire a QB. Or how “heroic” it is to make a public spectacle out of a personal tragedy.

    Keep playing on your knees, you freaking bums, the fans love it.

  10. winderNo Gravatar says:

    This is also the FO that got rid of Kap and Harbaugh hasn’t been here for a long time now. I understand why so many people hate Jed, he’s been a meddling idiot. But I don’t see the hiring of Lynch and KS as being foolish. I see them both as coach/GM who will bring the Niners back to respectability.
    skeebs- I don’t see where ‘pretty close or adversity’ have anything to do with ‘content.’ You guys ought to let Harbaugh go and enjoy what is happening to our team. Or not.

  11. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    I’m not pining for Harbaugh, Winder. And the only thing happening to our team, other than your rosy view of the future, which may or may not happen, is 1-9. Tough to enjoy that, unless you enjoy seeing York flounder, which I’ve come to enjoy quite a bit.

  12. winderNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah, that is the only thing that has happened to our team. Other than a 75% roster change. But we all know this year was only about wins and losses. I’ll take my rosie view any day over blind contempt.

  13. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    There’s nothing blind about my contempt.

  14. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    The Yorks deserve every bit of the contempt they have earned. I’m still hoping the family jet will disappear in the Bermuda Triangle.

  15. winderNo Gravatar says:

    Grump-There are numerous reasons to have contempt for the Yorks and especially Jed, I have felt it many times. But, I just love the 49ers and always have. I ignore jed until he does something stupid.

  16. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “GM John Lynch on celebration following 49ers first win: “I’ve always been an act-like-you’ve-been-there guy, so I was a little surprised I was acting like that.”

  17. winderNo Gravatar says:

    Nice to see he still has some kid in him.

  18. NoFearNo Gravatar says:

    What’s worse, blind contempt or blind loyalty?

    It wasn’t this FO (at least under Lynch and Shanahan) that rewrote Shit7torm’s contract allowing him to opt out and then benched him.

    What’s happening to our team and the NFL now is another story. No more “America’s Team” just hate-America teams.
    No more teaching young men values and ideals just me-first and me-me-me.
    No more American history or civics in schools but grade-schoolers are kneeling and taught to spit on the flag because someone told them someone was oppressed somewhere and they take the fine example set by the pro athletes they look up to as if pissing on the flag is what one does when one is unhappy.

    They learn by example and the example now is point to something you don’t like and piss, moan, protest and alienate your supporters demanding someone else fix it for you.

    Now I’m upset that pro football isn’t what it used to be. I guess I should go piss on the flag to protest that.

  19. winderNo Gravatar says:

    nofear- both blinds are pretty bad. It was a stroke of genius that Kap’s contract was re-written and I am pretty sure the org. knew he was gonna opt out. I am also pretty sure this new regime would have released him anyway. And, the world is turning to crap, it’s been heading that way for a long-time. Football to me has always been a release/escape. The game ain’t what it used to be either, but it’s what we got. I never wanted or thought politics should be entered into it. But it has. I still feel the majority of the noise behind the protests were from left wing militants. But when the president put his 2 cents worth out there it opened a whole new can of corn. The minute he did that every owner and player got involved and every team still have players doing something. I don’t see how we can get it out of the game. It all comes down to a bunch of money, like always. I am choosing to stay involved with the game and hopefully all this bull…. will get sorted out.

  20. NoFearNo Gravatar says:

    Winder,
    Of course the POTUS defended the symbols of the U.S.A. and stood up against the continuing disrespect from idiotic millionaires (and their toadies) lapping up the good life in the country they blame for every perceived injustice in the world.

    It (his remarks hoping some owner would stand up to one of the BLM players and fire him) was too close to government imposed sanctions IMO, but I can’t blame him for his outrage since I share it.

    Can’t wait for the “sexual assault and groping scandals” to hit the NFL. Oh yeah, Goodell, nevermind.

  21. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Maybe they can suspend Ezekiel again for the video of him casually pulling that girl’s top down to expose her breast. Like he had a right to do that, being the Mr. Big that he thinks he is. What a chump.

  22. NoFearNo Gravatar says:

    They should suspend him for his childish “feed me” bullshit, now copied by the two Niners RBs to make it even more irritating. I’d be happy with his suspension no matter the reason, but I hope they get Jerry wired for sound before they do it. That’d be a show.

    Tonight Roethlisberger has forfeited a score or two by insisting on forcing the ball to Martavis Bryant as he’s the latest and loudest crybaby on the team. What a clown show. Luckily their defense is playing albeit with Dick Lebeau on the other side.

    Elise Foley: “To avoid sexually harassing or assaulting anyone, or being accused of it, I will no longer meet with anyone of either gender. I will not speak to anyone either. Consider this my last communication to anyone on earth. Goodbye friends and family. Moving to the forest alone.”

  24. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The Seahag “Legion of Boom” has lost Sherman and now Chancellor for the year.

  25. winderNo Gravatar says:

    Maybe we got a shot.

  26. winderNo Gravatar says:

    And, maybe we can realign Wilson’s jaw again. No matter what it should be a fun game.

  27. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    More likely we see Garappolo’s debut after CJ gets carted off on a stretcher.

  28. winderNo Gravatar says:

    Well, Seattle does have a good defensive front, hopefully our O-line plays a good game and gives him some protection. He survived both the AZ and Philly games and that in itself is a testament would like to see what Jimmy G. can do but not at the expense of CJ’s health.

  29. winderNo Gravatar says:

    testament to his toughness

  30. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Shanahan has to play Jimmy G if nothing else to evaluate if he’s the future.
    You can only learn so much from practice, but when the hitting starts and opponents want to take your head off is the real test.

    From past play Jimmy G has a quick release and is decisive so that helps the Oline.

  31. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook predicting a 200-yard receiving game in his NFL debut today.”

    Well, another dumb shit enters the league. He’ll probably catch 2 passes for ten yards.

  32. NoFearNo Gravatar says:

    Looks like DeDe’s got all he can do to hold on to the ball.

    Gabbert’s having himself a little game so far today, too. Free at last, free at last, …

  33. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    I stand corrected. At the half, Westbrook has 3 catches for 35 yards.

  34. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Nothing like having Larry Fitzgerald to throw to, rather than Joe Nobody.

  35. NoFearNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah, and Ricky Seals-Jones.

    Meanwhile, Eli is beating the Smiths with absolutely nobody to throw the ball to and no reason to care.
