Bend Over, Here It Comes Again

The 49ers make their annual trek to Seattle this weekend for their annual trouncing by the Seahawks. This will be the seventh consecutive year of embarrassment and futility up north.

At the beginning of the season, it looked like things would change this year. Seattle was descending and the Niners were ascending. But Fate instead chose to continue its inexorable haunting of the southern franchise. As the season winds down, it’s the 49ers who are trending even further downward than their previous downwardness and the Seahawks are trending back upward.

This was supposed to be a rebuilding year for Seattle. But they jettisoned their malcontents, retooled with younger players, and seem poised to sneak into the playoffs once again with barely a backward glance. When the Niners announced their retooling, back in 2015, it was all a hoax. Their old players left, the cupboard was bare, and here we are with arguably the worst team in the league.

The backup QB battle between CJ Beathard and Nick Mullens is all that passes for on-field drama for the Niners these days, while tanking their way to the end of the year. Mullens gets the nod as designated punching bag this week. He looks more fluid than Beathard, especially while getting sacked and ducking around in the pocket trying to avoid them.

But off-field drama is where the Niners tend to shine, anyway. Dickhead Sherman spent this week trashing his former team’s record and denigrating the talents of their QB Russell Wilson. Sounds like DH is peeved the Seahawks didn’t fall apart without him and Earl Thomas and Michael Bennett. And gives credence to the rumors that the defensive guys up there were jealous of Wilson.

I think Sherman came to the Niners thinking they were going to be a playoff team and beat his old team in the process. Which makes his comments nothing but sour grapes, considering he’s shooting off his mouth from a 2-9 team.

Soon to be a 2-10 team.

    If you are the Seahags one would think they go after Sherman.
    Most teams have shied away from testing him. I am sure Wilson wants to torch him so that aspect will be interesting.

    Right now it is a 3 player race for the Eshmont Award between Breida, Kittle and Buckner.
    Breida has been playing hurt and it would be interesting to see what he can do with 25 touches.

    I had the privilege to attend The University of Texas when we had a running back named Earl Campbell.
    IMHO he’s the greatest running back of all time college and pro.

    He paid a heavy price for playing football healthwise but here is his story.

    Are we really playing without our starting QB running back and both WR’s ? Draft pick anyone ?

  5. NoFearNo Gravatar says:

    As an old VFOG I noticed the BOHICA reference the other day on the blog. It certainly fits the current Niners but maybe not quite as well as the ol’ SNAFU or the especially fitting FUBAR.

    Agree completely with the comments regarding what motivates the asshat Sherman. He has been burned regularly by those teams not scared away by the hype floating around that he’s as good as he never was (apologies to Toby Keith).

    Kareem Hunt sent home by Chefs because back in Feb he had an incident with a female in a Cleveland Hotel

    There are quite a few witnesses and it id doubtful that this woman was a “victim” as she kept coming at him. Perhaps she was looking for a payday?

    Hotel video just came out. This is one where you can’t blame the player at least just looking at the video.

  7. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    49er Policy should be modified zero tolerance when all facts come to light and due process is given.

    Foster got what he deserved but if someone else is in your face and instigating the incident and you try to walk away only to have that person keep coming there is only so much you can do.

    Lot’s of goldiggers hanging around trying to capitalize these days.

    NJ, Here is a disappointing report on your WR.

    He is 6’3″ but only 213 lbs. I would wait until 2nd Rd and see if he drops.

  9. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    As would I Bullit.
    I see him as a #2. Speed is not there either. If I could slot talent I’d be getting my A$$ into a FO:-D
    Simply like his style and stats.

  10. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    6’4″ 297 lbs

    I believe Suh was 308 lbs. So Williams was an edge defender before the move to nose tackle for the Tide. If we trade Thomas and Armstead before the draft he is the pick. Big end on run downs and nickel DT.

    “Chiefs announce they are releasing Kareem Hunt.”


  12. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Chiefs statement:

    “Earlier this year, we were made aware of an incident involving running back Kareem Hunt At that time, the National Football League and law enforcement initiated investigations into the issue. As part of our internal discussions with Kareem, several members of our management team spoke directly to him. Kareem was not truthful in those discussions. The video released today confirms that fact. We are releasing Kareem immediately.”

    Watch the Raiders get him.

  14. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    As a society we do coddle our criminals, and then whitewash the rap sheet. National Felons League lives up to it’s moniker.

    Do a Google search on frank clark rap sheet, also tyreek hill rap sheet. We all know the Reuben Foster rap sheet. At least this seems like the first offense for Kareem Hunt.

    Do black football players have a problem dealing with women.

  15. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    And the ultimate story of the black football player and his random stranger rape of a drugged white woman.

    And the unbelievable attempted whitewash of it.

  16. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Did not play the CIN Bengals this year but do a Joe mixon rap sheet and watch him knock out a woman on campus.

  17. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Hunt was atop my RB list when he came out.
    He had like 1 fumble since his days in HS through College, if memory serves….
    Highly talented and very versatile RB.

  18. NoFearNo Gravatar says:

    Just another POS acting like just another POS. Too bad for him the York/Shanahan/Lynch team and their zero-tolerance policy wasn’t on the case to pay off the girl and TMZ and everyone else involved. Maybe it’s not too late.

    Maio Co podcast with Wilhoite a good one. Very timely with both Foster and the upcoming SEA game.

    Foster came in when Bowman, after his two injuries, could not cover well. Foster needed Bo as Mike and a mentor. Bo could not deliver on either and Foster just did not have it upstairs to take charge in that void. He stayed undisciplined.

    He made the same mistakes repeatedly. He was not given the green dot to set the pre-snap alignment and communication both pre- and post-snap.

    Made the same mistakes off field as well. He was not trusted throughout. Time to move on.

    Contrast him with Warner.

    More on the recent thug beating of women, he may go on commissioner’s exempt list as well.

    The next day, after the incident, Maisonet said that McCoy called her and “talked badly about Delicia Cordon … and if I help him with this home invasion, he will concede in our custody case by allowing me to enroll our son in school in Miami. I found this to be odd because he has been fighting so hard against that during our custody battle.”

    Maisonet explained that she reluctantly agreed to help McCoy because she felt it was “in the best interest of our son.” On his urging, she gave her Instagram password to McCoy’s good friend, Tamarcus Porter, so that he could post a message, posing as her, that would denounce the child abuse allegations made by Cordon against McCoy and paint Cordon as someone who was “trying to ruin him

  21. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    So, which team had the best draft last year. It takes a while to assess the QB’s. But, look at IND who traded down to add 2nd’s.

    Quenton Nelson LG and Braden Smith RG are PFF rated 2nd and 3rd after McGlinchey as the top rated OL. Darius Leonard OLB has 114 tackles to lead the league.

  22. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    WTF is wrong with these idiots Hunt and Foster that piss their careers away when they arguably are at their tops. Assess and avoid, keep away from a compromising situation.

    Still a thug mentality in a wolfpack?

    “Packers have fired Mike McCarthy and named Joe Philbin interim HC.”

  25. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Makes you wonder if Marvin Lewis has pictures of the owner.
    Decades of mediocrity and he might have his successor standing by in Hue Jackson. Bungles deserve to be mediocre just like Detroit floating around 5-9 wins a year just falling short.

    Pettis is staring to show something. Give some of these youngsters a chance to grow and learn.
