Conference Title Games

Bleccccchh!

And another tedious NFL season bites the dust. Next up, two weeks of shameless, overhyped, self-aggrandizing nausea.

Fortunately, this is a 49er site and we can legitimately ignore the whole pile of steaming hot crap.

Sorry, but apparently I’ve reached my horseshit limit for the 2017 season.

They say winning cures everything, so maybe next year we’ll find out if that’s true, or how much it’s true. Enough to make the NFL seem less than the tired act it has been the past two years? Enough to overlook that Jed York is still the owner?

Jimmy Garoppolo‘s performance over the last five games of the season made it abundantly clear what a really good QB can do for a team, taking a 1-10 disaster to five straight wins and making an unremarkable offensive line and group of wide receivers seem like a solid bunch. He’s got everyone in Santa Clara making plans for the playoffs next year.

Whether that happens or not, his ability to lift everyone on the offense is something Colin Kaepernick never came close to accomplishing. Nor did Alex Smith, Brian Hoyer, or anybody else since the York’s took over the team. Pretty much wiping out the central excuse for all of them — that they were victims of a poor team around them. In fact, it makes it clearer that the only one who lifted the 2011-2014 Niners to greatness was the HC, Jim Harbaugh.

It’s not yet clear whether current HC Kyle Shanahan will turn out to be a great HC. He’s a pretty good OC, but, like Garoppolo, the team has never played a BIG, pressure packed game yet. Maybe the answers to that challenge will come in 2018.

    Sign Jimmy G to a 6-8 year contract and then I will start to feel good about our chances. He has already proven that he can play with the best of em so I am pretty sure we will be competitive next year. My worries are that somehow our brain trust(Jed, Paarrag) will screw it up.

    Are you out there Bullit?
    Curious to hear who’s on your Draft radar 😀
    I’ve got my mind set on a tall WR from this Draft Class.

    Several guys have caught my eye, between E/W Shrine game and Sr. Bowl.
    Waiting now to see what they look like in drills and 40 times at the Combine.

    Know much about this kid? Not tickled with the posted 40 time right now but, stats/size are very impressive on their face value –

    Jake Wieneke, WR, South Dakota St. Height: 6-4 Weight: 215 40-Time: 4.60

    GP REC YDS YPC TD
    53 288 5,157 17.9 59

    Caught an interview between Alex Flanagan/NFLN and John Lynch at the Sr. Bowl last week.
    She told Lynch her kids are calling Jimmy, ‘Garoppo-GOAT’ 😀
