Big Ass Parade

49er QB Colin Kaepernick laid a huge ass egg last Sunday in Arizona. He’s taken a big ass beating from the press all week because of it. An agonizing event like that can break a guy. Or it can be the catalyst for a courageous comeback. Or, I suppose, it can be just one of many bad days in the life of a QB on a crumball NFL team.

Next Sunday’s opponent, Green Bay, isn’t exactly a team the 49ers or Kaepernick are likely to get healed against. In fact, they’re both much more likely to absorb yet another big ass butt whipping. So, maybe we should hold off on faint hope until the following week’s game against the New York Giants.

NFL coaches are always quick to point out that they are not interested in moral victories. However, if the 49ers walk off the field Sunday and have lost by less than ten points, you can bet Jim Tomsula will be secretly thrilled. Because another 30 point beat down will mercifully terminate any remaining doubt that both he and his coaches and this team are big ass dreadful.

Reggie Bush will apparently return to action this week to lend a hand as part of the problem and not the solution. All Reggie can do any more is catch swing passes and screen passes. If the Packers are fooled by his presence in the lineup, they should all gather in the woodshed and beat hell out of each other.

Kaepernick is getting more pressure on pass plays than any QB in the league so far this year. Like most QBs, even good ones, he don’t do so well when pressured. Last year, Russell Wilson got the most pressure, yet he was able to lead his team to the Super Bowl and within one big ass yard of winning it. Clearly, Kaepernick is suffering mightily in comparison to Wilson, who has progressed so far beyond Kap that it’s embarrassing to even mention them in the same breath any more, as they were a mere two years ago.

Too bad the defense doesn’t have a QB type guy, so we could dump on whomever it is that’s made that group such a big ass mess. ILB Navorro Bowman threw his hands up in the air in disgust about five times during the Cardinals game, so it can’t be him that deserves blame, right? I suppose DC Eric Mangini will have to suffice. Any guy who decides to cover Larry Fitzgerald with OLB Ahmad Brooks certainly fills the requirements for big ass dunce.

Hmmmm. I’m thinking we should have a Big Ass Fail award that we can hand out after each game. The 2015 49ers will have no shortage of potential winners, that’s for sure.

    Lowell Cohn’s column from yesterday putting the blame on Jed

    “No need to pile on Colin Kaepernick, who is regressing as a quarterback, or Jim Tomsula, who’s in over his head-coach head. Never should have been appointed 49ers coach. These are the 49ers, for heaven’s sake.

    You should have chosen a coach with more talent, more gravitas. You should have chosen a coach who could attract talented assistants as opposed to that group of mediocrities designing your team’s game plans. In a former era, the 49ers had assistants like George Seifert, Dennis Green, Mike Holmgren and Mike Shanahan. These were cutting-edge coaches, deep thinkers who changed football. Name one cutting-edge coach on the current staff. Geep Chryst? Eric Mangini?

    You should have chosen a coach who could have kept cornerstone veterans. Instead, you had a mass exit — in part a vote of no-confidence in the coach, the organization. And you.

    Your fault.”

    There wouldn’t be this much animosity towards Jed if he hadn’t sent out his “apology” tweet on Thanksgiving night. He set a precedent and now he’s hiding after his hubris filled plea that he should be held accountable for the fortunes of the Niners.
    Jed didn’t mention how available he’s be to hear concerns of fans.

    The season is turning into a big clusterpuck. Even the staunchest advocates of Tomsula and his staff are starting to distance themselves after the two blowouts.

  2. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    I’m for a Big Ass Fail Award after every game. The problem will be nominating just ONE big ass failure per week. Take last week- should Kap be the ‘winner’? OL? Chryst? Mangini? This is not easy with this collection of talent. Dunno.

    The scoring prognostication contest has quickly devolved into a contest to determine/predict how much the Niners will lose by each week. So we need to figure out who is the biggest loser after each game just to keep up with the “progress” on display Sundays.

  3. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Mark Schlerleth of ESPN contends that league wide the Olines suck
    and have been neglected by front offices in favor of spending cap space on skill position players.
    The premise that Kap is the only QB under siege is a myth. Six starting QBs have been knocked out in 3 weeks due to poor line play.
    Schlerleth contends more padded practices and contact practices are needed for Olines to jell.

  4. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “Vernon Davis (knee) came off the field before the start of team drills. His status for Sunday is very much in doubt.”

    Vernon can’t seem to stay healthy the last couple of years.

  5. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Excellent cohn zone and comments. Reality bites. Media needs to force Jed in front of the cameras. Ironic that Solari from here yet went to GB in a heartbeat.

    Homer blog would find this cancer inducing.

  6. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    VD is wasted with OC and CK. With a trade a miraculous recovery. A miracle I tell you, a miracle.

  7. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    From the Indianapolis Star Frank Gore reveals he wanted to stick with the Niners but Baalke didn’t give him a chance which makes Baalke a lying SOB.

    “In football, your team is perpetually attempting to replace you. The search for the next big thing never ceases, even when the current big thing is a five-time Pro Bowl selection like Gore. He learned this in San Francisco after last season, when the team made a decision to move forward with second-year back Carlos Hyde as its starter.

    Gore has some lingering thoughts about this.

    “The only thing I was hurt by was that I thought we could have done it better,” he said of his departure after 10 dedicated seasons. “Like, no bull—-. Just straight up. I don’t know if I even wanted to go back. But I would have felt better if we would have sat down and had a conversation. I mean, I was going to test the market no matter what. Me and the head coach (Jim Tomsula) talked and he basically told me I’d be in a certain situation. But I wanted to hear it from the GM (Trent Baalke).

    “I mean, you could let us compete. You didn’t have to say I was automatically going to take the back seat. Put it on me. I mean, bro, I finished last season with 1,100 yards. Every time I got opportunities, I did something with it. So, I felt like, ‘Fine, if you want to go with the young guy, (make him) beat me out. It wasn’t like I can’t play anymore. If he beats me out, I can handle that. You can’t play this game forever. I knew I couldn’t be there forever. But I was there 10 years and I played every down the same whether we were winning or not.”

  8. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Perhaps that is what is wrong with the Niners.
    Baalke in his mind predetermines who should start rather than letting players compete and fight for the first string job.
    Gore said he was willing to come to camp and compete and may the best man win.
    The team’s rushing attack would be more potent with a Hyde/Gore combo than Hyde/Davis as it is now.

    Gore signed for $4 mil a year with the Colts which is not much more than Baalke gave to benchwarmer Sharesse Wright and Mediocre RT Erik Pears so it wasn’t the money.

  9. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    So Bullit do you think Balkey should get a look-see as a candidate for winning the (likely) Big Ass Fail Award this week? Perhaps an honorable mention? I’m just asking. How about York?

    Also do you have a prediction for the outcome of this weeks GB game? So far everyone thinks GB wins:

    The spread for Green Bay ranges from 37 (bakkentom), 30 (Phil), 28 (Spit), 13 (NJ) and 10 (Rob). We’ll see if the ‘mercy factor’ plays into it and GB holds back a little.

  10. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Pyongyang N.K. chapter was laughing at the Bears with OC Gase and DC Fangio being 0-3.

    Again shows you how naïve and clueless the Pyongyang critics are.

    The Bears played what looks like the 3 best teams in the NFC to start the year. They played Green Bay, Arizona and Seattle to start the year with 3 losses. Without their starting QB the 0-3 start was not unexpected. Some think Jay Cutler sucks but his replacement Jimmy Clausen is easily 10 times worse.

    The Pyongyang N.K. chapter critics also have to realize that the Bears were a 5-11 team last season and are in rebuilding mode.

  11. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    It pains me too much to pick the size of the blowouts so I’ve been refraining from giving you a score.
    When I watch the games I’m still rooting for the Niners and have done so all my life.
    The Niners have averaged 33 points in their last 4 games against the Packers. If they score 33 points they just might be looking at an upset.

  12. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Bears also have Alston Jeffrey injured and Kevin White IR’D in preseason. Defense is better with Raji. We lose. Wing nuts at Homer blog.

  13. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Jim Tomsula reportedly farted during his press conference. I don’t know why I don’t like this team anymore. It’s really fantastic.

  14. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Did someone step on a duck?

  15. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Sept 2015 was the first calender month since July 2009 that the NFL went without a single player being arrested.

  16. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Whether they miss Gore in the running game or not, they most assuredly miss him in the protection schemes.

    I don’t blame them for the need to stay young on the roster. It’s tricky. You need good depth but with Frank starting his backup never saw the field. Play me or trade me coach. No one wants to see their best football years go by on the bench.

    Kaepernick’s first INT vs ARI had Calais Campbell at his feet trying to wrap his legs. He couldn’t step into his throw. He could have thrown sooner.

    Kaepernick’s second INT vs ARI had him backing up to avoid guess who, Calais Campbell, as he had no trouble busting through the double team of Hyde and Miller like they weren’t there in the max protect seven man protection against the five man rush. Kaepernick had quicker/shorter options there, too.

    Do you have any offensive meeting before the ARI game and not stress blocking Campbell? They moved him all over and he won from everywhere.

    Kaepernick took the heat without implying everyone else played like shit, too. Good for him. I like that.

  17. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    You can get fired for too much farting at work

    Would not do well in the Navy on a submarine.

  18. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    and what about this week’s game?

    Well, I’m glad you asked because I have something to say about that.

    I can’t imagine the scenario where our game plan against GB is run heavy, especially considering our defense is not going to stop Rodgers’ offense. Kaepernick is going to have to throw the ball around.

    I think Kaepernick has a good game in front of the home crowd against a defense he knows a little about and snaps back in this one.

    The o-line embarrassed themselves last week and will make a better effort here at home as will Mangini (I hope) and the defensive players.

    I will take the 49ers to win at home (against the spread anyway).

  19. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Posted at the stroke of midnight. Must be right!

  20. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    I hear you Bullit, it’s just not as much fun these days even tho many of us knew this was coming. As soon as the report came out before the 2014 season of trading Jimi to CLE I saw disaster if so. And what happened made it as bad…Love to see 30+ Niner points.

    NF, love to see a win at home esp. against GB. That would calm us down for a week or so.

  21. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    NoFear – Are you trying to add some comedy to your posts?

  22. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Comedy. Do you mean the Kap passing attack?

    I’m just asking.

  23. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Looks like GB nickel DE pass rushers are Clay Mathews and Julius Peppers. LB seems to be the weakness. On base downs Clay Mathews is inside.

    David Neumann has very good article at NN. Morgan Burnett also out. Attack middle with short and medium passing game. Packers D is very good against the run with Raji back.

    Expect Rodgers, even wo Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams, uses James Jones and Randall Cobb to outpace CK. 1-15 still golden.

  24. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Ravens in 2 weeks just got a gift. Rams Chris Givens for a 7th. Gave him away in his contract year. He is similar to Torrey Smith so our DB’s cannot count on no Breshad Perriman and Steve Smith to make it easier. Flacco can plug him in and terrorize Brock and Acker.

  25. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    The future in nickel is here. DT’s are Armstead, Tank, and Dial. DE’s are Lynch and Harold. Aldon Smith stayed close to home and may come back as a FA with a home town discount.

    Get a trimmed down and healthy AD back next year as well. Cataclysm this season should clear out GM and coaches.

    Time to take another listen to Pharrell Wilson and be happy.

  26. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Phil – I was referring to NoFear believing the 49ers cover tomorrow.

    Watching the Michigan game… This Michigan team is a lot like the 2011 49ers – great defense, terrible qb, good running game. Hopefully Harbaugh learns from Andrew Luck. This time Harbaugh will no doubt be able to recruit one of the best qbs in the nation next year, and if he does, he should use him more than he used Luck. And it’s not that Harbaugh didn’t use Luck. Harbaugh just didn’t recruit wide receivers to compliment Luck. If you get one of the best qbs in the nation, and I’m confident Harbaugh will, you also have to get him wide receivers.

    And I do believe this Michigan team could play a competitive game against the 49ers. The Michigan defense is probably the best if not one of the best in the nation. I think the Michigan Wolverines will finish top ten. In five games, the Wolverine D has given up 31pts… in 5 games! The 49ers have given up 31 pts in a half.

    Jake Ruddock is terrible, like Alex Smith. Ruddock has radar-lock on on receivers and doesn’t look safeties off. He has zero awareness- both with receivers and pass rushers. I see some improvement over week one, but not enough to compete for a national championship. Everything else is championship caliber, though. Defense, run game – both championship caliber. Unfortunately, for Harbaugh, that’s a lot like his 2011 SF 49er team.

    Go Michigan!!! Jim Harbaugh is one hell of a great football coach. Trent Baalke over Harbaugh? Only a kid makes the obvious wrong choice.

  27. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Just shut up. Enough of your bullshit.
    Michigan would not be competitive the Niners.
    Just stop.
    You can’t help being a troll.

  28. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Michigan would not be competitive AGAINST the Niners.

  29. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit – Don’t cry. It’s gonna be okay, little buddy. I know your soul purpose in your pathetic life is the 49ers, and this one hits close to home, but you’ll deal with it. You’ll surprise yourself with how well you deal with the fact the 49ers suck.

    In two games against the Cardinals and Steelers, the 49ers gave up 28 points in the first half against the Steelers, and 31 pts in the first half to the Cardinals. Michigan has only given up 31 pts IN FIVE GAMES. THINK ABOUT IT …. 31 points in half or five games?
    That’s a pathetic comparison.

    The 49ers are either the worst team in the NFL, or close to it. The 49ers are looking at a top five pick, if not the first overall. And the Michigan Wolverines are climbing the national rankings now 22nd, next week 18th.. and so on. By the end of the year, Michigan will be top 10 in the nation, and the 49ers will be one of the five worst in the NFL.

    Bullit – would you like to bet? I’ll bet you by the end of the year the 49ers are one of the five worst teams in the NFL, while the Wolverines are top ten.

    Quit crying and posting ridiculous stuff about Chuck’s blog. Go over there, or bet like a man here.

  30. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Bloom off the rose. The start of some devastating articles on CK. Better man up and brain up. The middle of the GB D is open to attack.

    I believe this is effectively a national game on FOX. If he phucks up here then FO may be forced to hand the keys to Blaine.

  31. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Can’t help it if you’re an idiot troll who only shows up when the Niners are not doing well.

    Your foolish online attempts to bet online are folly.

    Like I said your sole purpose to go Niner blogs is to stir shit up and be a troll.

  32. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit – I get a strong sense about you that you shouldn’t be judging anyone….ever. Go back to citing numerous links nobody reads. It’s what you do.

    How many times have you been kicked off this blog? Five?

    Sooner or later you’ll trigger #6, you can’t help it.

    How many blogs have you been banned from? Every single one.

    I suppose you still can’t take a hint.
    Not judging you, just stating facts that are obvious.

  34. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit – You’re a tool. You act like that’s a black mark against me… like being banned from blogs is a bad thing. You’re a total tool. I get banned off blogs intentionally as as statement against the general consensus of a blog. This blog used to be a pro Alex Smith blog and I got banned (correctly) because Smith wasn’t the answer for a Super Bowl run. Now, Chuck’s blog is a mad house of his different user names so I got banned (correctly) because that’s not how you run a blog. Getting banned is not like your credit gets effected, or it hurts your bank account or social standing. You’re a fool if you believe otherwise. You think stating the fact that I’ve been banned hurts me or something. Get a life, dude. Seriously…

  35. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    If the 49ers played the Wolverines, the score would be 21-6 Michigan in Ann Arbor, and 10-6 Michigan at Levi Stadium.

    Jim Harbaugh could compensate for college kids going up against full-grown adults and out-coach Jim Tomsula, taking the Wolverines to a win.

  36. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    The Michigan game came on at 3 AM so I was snoring, resting up for tomorrows 4:25 AM contest against GB. Wow another shut out, second in a row. 14 points allowed in 4 games. 24 allowed in Jimis first game on the road against ranked Utah. Lost by TOs (4) from the QB. Agree they will find a better one and he’s a 5th year senior anyway. Alex indeed but Jimi has him playing to his capacity and Ruddock was wise to transfer in to UM. Glad to see UM 4-1 and the other Big 10 schools grumbling already about Jimi. Man’s a winner.

    Harbaugh has ’em rolling.

  37. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    No use rubbing it in, can still enjoy Jimi pissing people off (other coaches/schools), resurrecting his 4th sad sack program in quick-time and winning, winning, winning.

    What was here and easily might have been again this year in Ninerland…. That horse has been beat to death and mostly buried tho getting our boys trounced brings up painful memories these days. I still cannot believe York was dumb enough to destroy the winning program here and that it went down like it did = in the worst possible way. Massive talent exodus of coaches and players and hideous reputation nationwide for Niners causing good men to stay away.

    So who will come here and save the Niners?? NOOOOObody. It’s sad really that the embarrassment Jimi fixed was promptly torn down when the House JIMI built was completed. Now we are back to less than square one since every decent coach/GM knows York is an egotistical SOB not to be trusted or worked for. Not to disparage Mangini or even Chryst but we are in a world of hurt with NO prospects for better days ahead. Nobody can fail to see who did it and how it happened apart from a few bitter clingers blaming the last winner here.

    Our pity should also extend to Kap who has been stranded by the ouster of his winning coach and stuck with 2nd-3rd rate talent by the owner and the GM. I too feel sorry for the guy and suspect the best days are behind him, sadly.

    As far as what we can do = we’re stuck with York but we can demand he step up and BE ACCOUNTABLE as is just and as he claimed he was willing to do. But the hiding act will never fix the damage he has wrought. Never. So get on the big boy khaki pants, man up and explain yourself to this team and its fans. Admit you made a grievous error and are working to make amends. That’s the least you can do Mr York.

    To the fans of this shell shocked team -hand in there, one day lessons will be learned and good times will return. Starting with GB would be nice

    Rams look like a 2 WR 2 TE offense. Chris Givens just hit the lotto getting out and going to the long baller Flacco. Wasted on the Rams.

    Jed York has been going to Twitter offering free tix if you can give him a good reason. His little game backfired on him this week.

  40. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Alex Smith has a weak arm so can understand his reticence in throwing the ball. CK is not confident. Montana says he holds it too long. Whatever the reasons he needs to step it up.

  41. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    I just cut and paste this from an article I read on Greg Roman on CSNBayArea.

    The Bills have 12 offensive touchdowns scored by nine different players.

    The Bills are….
    No. 1 in the league in rushing
    No. 3 highest scoring offense
    No. 2 in the league in the red zone (29th last two seasons)

    This is why Unca and Berger are so quiet. The narrative they tried to impose over the off season was a sham. The reality is that Harbaugh and Roman were great offensive minds, but Baalke didn’t give them the offensive tools. Scot McCloughan built the team without a qb, Harbaugh danced with McCloughan’s vision and tried to bring in a qb, then Baalke destroyed everything with terrible draft picks and awful GM moves, Harbaugh saw it and told Jed,”It’s Baalke or me.” Then Jed’s choice set the 49ers back ten years. 49er fans: You are now entering the lost 49er decade. Good luck with that.

    Yep T Smith not happy and how bout that drop by V Mac

  77. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    60 yd punt + 10 yd penalty, that’s better

  78. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Niners definitely play better at home – defensively, at least.

  79. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    That’s the Fangio scheme?

    Stopping Rodgers lotta work

  80. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    RZ troubles continue

  81. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Needed the TD on the end of that drive. Bad finish to a nice drive.

  82. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Dead Zone Phil.

  83. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Good stop. Much needed. Put up some points.

  84. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    OTOH, just a suggestion.

  85. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Nice stop by Ward on 3rd down

  86. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    lol points would be nice

  87. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    And why was that play reviewed?
    Did GB challenge?

  88. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Has Tyrod Taylor been figured out by DC’s?

  89. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    yeah challenged the spot. Lost on good tackle by ward

  90. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    The Mayans have pulled the FG left.

  91. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Inside two minutes.

  92. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Watching the Vikings / Broncos game. John Lynch doing color commentary. “Does Peyton Manning have any arm strength anymore? No, but just throw it up for a jump ball and let your big receivers like Thomas come down with it.”

    That’s what Peyton’s been doing all year…

    Shocked to see the 49ers still in it at half.

  93. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Rodgers looks frustrated.

  94. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    D is getting pressure on Rodgers but our O still making errors.

  95. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    I hate the broadcast team of Aikman/Buck, even worse in the bag for GB/Rodgers. At least they’re not Dilfer.

  96. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Bush up the middle on 3rd and 11? Sheesh.

  97. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Where’s Berger to rag on the play calling when needed?

  98. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Even Joe Buck called BS on that play. A turnover about now would work.

  99. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Bringing the ball out of the end zone 9 1/2 yards deep is a bad play. You have to run 29.5 yards just to make the 20.
    Anything 5 yards or deeper should be a kneel down.

  100. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Pinion is wildly inconsistent.

  101. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    STL on the road in AZ giving them hell.

  102. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    What is the point of giving Torrey Smith all that money if you don’t utilize him?

  103. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    So Ellington makes it to the 11 on a deep kickoff.

  104. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Ellington brings it out short of 15

  105. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    He’s trying to break something open. If he downed it without trying he’d be cursed as having no heart.

  106. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    What happened to the screen passes to Bush?

  107. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    It’s a damn shame when all the skill positions are so bad we’re crying about the return guy.

  108. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Is Kaep even looking for Torrey Bullit?
    Kaep isn’t making many friends on the Receiving end of these relationships.

  109. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Fangio’s old buddy Capers making life miserable for us.

  110. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Isn’t the premise of the screen pass to slow down the pass rush?
    Why don’t they try one at least?

  111. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    49ers early game adrenaline seems to be wearing down.

  112. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bag the sack dance when you’re down by two TDs.

  113. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    My thoughts more or less precisely.

  114. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Times 2!

  115. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Hyde/Bush have 11 touches in the game.
    Boldin/ T Smith 4 receptions

    You can’t win games if your playmakers don’t get the ball.

  116. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Offense isn’t giving the D a blow either Skeebs.
    Kaep pulls down the ball and leaves everyone hanging on the Receiving end.

  117. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Hit a target?
    C’mon dude.

  118. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Peyton Manning is awful.

  119. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Barrows: “The few 49ers fans remaining booing after last two passes to Boldin sail well out of bounds.”

  120. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Looks like you guys are workin’ on your first “moral victory” of the year. Good for Jed York.

  121. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    By the looks of it Skeebs, I’ll be doing the same thing in NJ next week.
    This is ridiculous.
    They’re daring Kaep to beat them with his arm.

  122. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Turn out the lights, the party’s over.

  123. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Boldin looks like he needs to vent.
    If he doesn’t let it out he might have a stroke.

  124. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Just sad.

  125. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    NJ winning the prognostication puzzle this week = he called GB by 13 and they are up 14 late. D kept it close(r) but can’t win w/o scoring. Our O not up to speed. Kap worth $1 Mil / game?

    Good luck next week at the game NJ!

  126. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Thanks Phil….I think?
    Can’t put this on play calling.
    The QB has to beat the Defense.
    He’s rushing everything, not seeing enough, not pulling the trigger with any accuracy.

  127. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Exactamundo NJ.

    1-3 ugh

  128. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Kaepernick has let the defenses intimidate him and get into his head. He is leaving yards and points on the field as bad as Alex ever did. There is no trust on this offense. Kap does not trust the O-line, and the skill position players do not trust Kap to make the plays. The coaches cannot fix it and do not trust Kaepernick to carry the offense.

    Best case scenario for mid-season is 2-6, maybe 3-5 if someone has an epic bad day against us. 1-7 looks more likely.

    We’re in Full Dysfunctional Free Fall on offense. It’s 2008 all over again.

  129. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    The best news about next week Phil?
    Night game which means a LOOOOONG tailgate.
    I may pass out early if this Offense plays like it has the past couple of weeks.

    As Grumpy suggests, the Receivers aren’t trusting Kaep to find them. He missed some very big plays today that he simply didn’t even see.

  130. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Worst offensive performance since 1964.

  131. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “Carlos Hyde and Anquan Boldin declined to speak to the media after today’s loss.”

  132. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Marcus Martin is channeling Singletary.
    He needs to look at the tape and then get better.

  133. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Kaepernick shouldn’t be the topic of discussion here, but sadly he is. The 49ers’ offensive line was ranking second to last in the NFL before this game. After this GB game, the 49ers’ O line might rank dead last. If the O line is ranked dead last, the qb is gonna suck. There’s no sugarcoating that or spinning it. The quarterback is only as good as his offensive line, and Kaep’s offensive line sucks.

    But what’s more concerning is that Jim Tomsula didn’t run the ball more. The only formula for wins with this team is winning the time of possession game with repeated runs. And ask any old offensive lineman – it’s easier to run the ball than it is to pass block.

    In terms of who’s figuring it out quicker, I think Mangini is figuring it out much quicker than Wrangler Jesus. But it’s Tomsula’s job to create a game plan that coordinates offensive scheme with defensive scheme, and Tomsula as a head coach is clearly well beyond his skill set.

  134. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Regarding what I just wrote about Kaep, I believe it’s more true with young qbs because they simply need more time to read defenses and go through their progressions.

    Aside from watching Peyton Manning throw up all over the field, I also watch easily my favorite qb in the NFL, Phillip Rivers. Rivers’ O line was mostly all injured with 3/5th of his line out, and Rivers still beat the Browns. My favorite play was an audible by Rivers that got Ladarius Green matched-up on Donte Whitner. (In this game, Whitner was the same Whitner – stud in the box, liability in coverage). The minute Rivers saw Whitner on Green, Rivers did something very few qbs in the NFL do… He took a quick drop and threw it up high. The ball had a huge, rainbow arch to it. Rivers did that intentionally because he knew he wouldn’t have enough time to wait for Green to reach the endzone with the offensive linemen who were starting – some fresh off the practice squad. And Rivers knew it was Whitner in coverage. The combo of a high throw and Whitner covering was a no-brainer, but not enough NFL qbs realize that if you have a bad O line, you can still throw the ball down field with a high rainbow if the middle of the field is vacated.

    Hats off to Rivers – an amazing competitor.

  135. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Kaepernick is 28 years old next month.
    He’s not a young QB as this is year 5 and year 4 as a starter.
    Tired of the excuses his fanboys make for him.
    Kap is getting paid $1 mil a game and he needs to earn it or find a new line of work.

  136. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Look out!
    The Rams now have their feature running back in Todd Gurley.
    19 carries for 146 yds against the Cards.

  137. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    On the radio they just said Hyde did not have one carry in the second half.
    The score at halftime was 7-3. What was the OC thinking?

  138. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    NoFear49er, the box score on Cobb doesn’t look too gaudy.
    Credit to Ward today?
    I have the game recorded.
    Listened to the radio call so, there wasn’t much to go on.

  139. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    As bad as the o-line is, the QB has to see SOMETHING. The free rusher, the short outlet, getting rid of the ball, as rudimentary as they are, would all be a good start to getting past the immediate and costly mistakes that are all on Kaepernick.

    No o-line can block when the QB is not sticking with the protection when he can.

    The receivers jumping up and down as if nothing is their fault is as ridiculous as Lynch’s sack dance while the team is in the dumper.

    Name your scapegoat. There are plenty of candidates. I blame the coaches and therefore Baalke and therefore Jed.

    The team lacks mostly leadership. That’s coaching. That’s management. That’s ownership.

    Did the boy Jed tweet his apology to the fans today? I’m holding him responsible and I insist he and Baalke run the gaunlet of fans they screwed.

  140. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    NJ49er, what I saw of Ward’s coverage on Cobb, he did a very solid job. I’ll re-watch it when the all-22 comes out.

  141. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit I think they were trying to spare Hyde and get Kaep to pass his way out of the funk he’s in.
    From what I heard, Hyde was being shut down pretty easily today.
    I’ll watch it tomorrow if I have the stomach for it.

  142. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Cool beans NoFear49er.
    One small bright spot I guess?
    Sounds as though Mangini and the Defense stepped up their end of things at least.
    Heard Eli Harold on the post game.
    He’s an upbeat individual too.
    Gave high praise to Lynch and the team in general as being a self-supported group from within.

    If Kaep doesn’t start feeding his WRs, I’m afraid they’re gonna commit mutiny soon.

  143. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Heard Tim Ryan say several times today that Kaep missed big plays.
    Eager to tough it out with the DVR tomorrow to see just what he was referring to.
    About seeing SOMETHING?
    How about when you anticipate SOMETHING too?
    Know where your targets are going when you run the plays perhaps?
    Then, you stand a better chance of anticipating their ability to make the play work.
    Assuming you deliver them a ball they can make a play with.

  144. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Not sure where/who I read from, maybe Billick?
    Suggesting that Kaep has to see the target open before he trusts himself to make the throw.
    Notice to Kaep.
    It’s on you to throw them open more often in the Pros.

  145. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Where he should muscle a ball into tight spots, like the End Zone, he’s apparently not comfortable doing it.
    I believe Ryan stated that Celek was standing at the Goal Post with a clear line between he and Kaep that should have resulted in a TD?
    Anyone have a reply on that one?
    Ryan suggested that if he didn’t see him, he should have.
    Had to have been where we settled for our umpteenth FG in the Dead Zone.

  146. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    I have always said that coaches film doesn’t lie. In the last couple of years it has been proven by the film that Kap will
    bypass a wide open receiver 15 yards downfield to throw a 50/50 ball to a receiver 30 yards downfield.

    Deep balls are drifting 5-10 yards out of bounds. Not able to make the throw that drops the ball into the bucket. Short hopping shorter throws where you just need to put the ball on a receivers hands.

    Lot’s of throws require his receivers to leave their feet giving them zero chance of any YAC.

  147. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Just read a comment that Matthews got picked up on TV mics telling Kaep – “You ain’t Russell Wilson, Dog”

    Well if that ain’t calling you out, nothing is.

  148. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit I’m just amazed that Kaep isn’t slowing the game down mentally at this point.
    ‘Being himself’ isn’t getting him advanced.
    He’s regressing IMO.
    Not a good recipe for success at this stage.

  149. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    NJ49er, I think that must be the play where we had just made a 1st down on the GB three. Celek motioned into the slot on the right inside of Boldin (?). It looked like he released straight across the goal line and the DB was playing him pretty loose. Unfortunately he was then out of the camera view. Easy to believe he was open.

    That’s the play Kaepernick got sacked by a LB getting around Staley. And where Kaepernick failed to step up into a decent sized pocket and make his throw.

    He should get some bench time now.

  150. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    If he sh!ts the bed on SNF next week, he’s got to sit and regroup mentally.
    NYG Secondary isn’t very complicated.
    He needs to speed up the clock in his head and make the Big League throws if he expects to command this team.

    No excuses beyond that.
    Take control, or sit your A$$ down.

  151. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I think Tomsula is concerned about damaging his psyche NoFear49er.
    Seifert benched Young along the way.
    Sometimes it’s necessary.
    Clear his head, ignite some self reflection, show the rest of the Offense we’re trying to improve.

    1-3 isn’t the end of the season but, it’s becoming pretty clear that there are play-makers that are biting their collective tongues right now about where this thing is going.
    Or, not going, as it were.

  152. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Patton is a waterbug, like a Welker inside.
    Snap, turn, throw, let him do something.
    Maybe from a bunch set?
    I simply don’t think Kaep can throw a crosser with any confidence.
    I can’t explain it?

  153. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Torrey Smith:”They played man-to-man and blitz zero the whole game and we didn’t take advantage of it.”

    That’s on the OC calling the plays. I had hopes for the running game but the last 3 weeks have burst that bubble.

  154. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Man coverage means more blitzers.

    These type guys are not team players. They should quit like the other half of the team did when they saw what Jed handed them.

    If not, STFU and be a team player instead of pointing fingers.

  155. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    In Pyongyang N.K. chapter Chuckles said bye bye to me.

    Chuckles must be going o9n a tour of the gulags.

  156. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    There’s plenty of blame to go in Chryst’s direction too Bullit.
    How much are they feeding Kaep?
    Are there limitations involved?
    I get the Staff/philosophy changes involved but, there has to be communication, sight adjustments built into any Offensive scheme when blitzes occur.
    If not, we’re simply on death watch until they find another QB, or HC, to fix the Offense.
    Baalke needs an Offensive minded guy, no question.
    Just can’t see them blowing it up on the Staff side for at least a year.
    Something has to occur with Kaep that doesn’t involve the Pistol-flavored aspects of his game.
    RG III is sitting in DC for much the same reasons.
    Hate to think Kaep isn’t smarter than him at this point.

  157. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Anquan and Torrey should be doing their parts to assist Kaep as well.
    Both have tasted success, at our expense of course in NOLA.
    Kaep is losing confidence by the gallon now.
    Can’t have a fractured locker room or, Coaching becomes impossible.
    Flaming dumpster fire right now.

  158. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    From what I heard on the radio call, Torrey was missed badly at one point and just went to the bench to sulk.
    Have to watch for that as well once I get the chance to view the debacle first hand.
    If he’s pissing on Kaep’s cornflakes already, we’re circling the drain.
    Has to be corrected, hashed out someway, somehow.
    Tomsula better get a grip on that immediately.

  159. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    They all want the glorification, NJ49er, but few want to be associated with what’s happening now. Receivers aren’t very good at getting open or catching balls. What else is there? They’ve got no room to start yakking on the field during the game and afterward to the press. I’d bench them, too.

  160. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Torrey Smith could have hung onto that ball he got his hands on in the end zone. What’s he got to talk about?!

  161. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    As stated NoFear49er, I don’t have the visuals to digest just yet but, agree, if you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.
    STFU and do your jobs.
    End of discussion.
    You’re being paid to win football games.
    As Belichick says…Do.YOUR.Job.

  162. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    You’ll know Tomsula is not Head Coach material if he stands pat again with his lineup.
    He needs to tweak the lineup somehow this week.

  163. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit he was dealt a sh!tty hand to begin with.
    No, he’s not HC material by conventional standards.
    He’s learning on the job.
    A$$ deep in a dumpster fire.
    Good guy I’ll assume, with a patchwork Staff he stitched together from the Good ‘Ol Boy Network.
    Baalke sought Gase which I’ll contend was the right direction to pursue.
    He needs an Offensive guy to compliment his shortcomings.

    Didn’t work with Harbaugh. Obviously.

    Back to the same old debate.
    How much did Jed have to do with the Tomsula appointment?

    I’m tired of speculating on the pollution aspects of that discussion.
    Just want to hear him answer his own charge at this point.
    Spare me the ‘we support Jim’ BS too.

    Either you’re going to develop an Offense that doesn’t involve your QB ‘running for 90yds’ as an exciting attraction or, just sell the team.
    Take your profits and go buy an island somewhere.

  164. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Record breaking crapiness for this O. 3 pts, 8 first downs, and 6 sacks. Per NN only a 2007 and a 1963 game rivals this ineptitude.

    GB D vulnerable in the middle with poor LB and Burnett missing. Was Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in the game. Guess they had the last laugh. So how many passes in middle to TE, RB, and slot guy.

    Do you hear any Blaine chants yet?

  165. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    It puzzles me why with a fierce pass rush no screen passes were called and why Bush wasn’t utilized more.

    Tomsula said it was unacceptable that Hyde only got 8 touches.
    As the head coach wearing a head set don’t you simply tell your OC “Throw some screens to Bush”? It appears Tomsula is clueless
    and not thinking too much on the sideline. He should be thinking two or 3 plays ahead such as preparing to make a decision that you’re in four down territory etc.

  166. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Seems like Miller is also less involved and now a part time player.

  167. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit they’re a clueless bunch at all phases right now.
    All week to prepare and…pffft, nothing materializes when the ‘other’ Defense comes calling.

    It’s as simple as Kaep not seeing what’s going on for me.
    Deer in the headlights.
    Happy Feet behind an OLine that hasn’t figured out what they’re trying to do as well.

    Granted, everyone/everything is being christened by fire right now.
    Tomsula is leaning heavily on the other Coaches to run the Offense.
    He’s a DLine Coach that slept at a Holiday Inn Express kinda character right now.
    He’s trying to keep spirits up while also trying to keep it from derailing into a ravine.

    Kinda feel for the guy actually.
    His deck was stacked against him from the outset.

    Logan won’t correct Kaep overnight and, Chryst is still trying to figure out what he ate for breakfast because, his mind is overwhelmed with details that are coming at him fast and furious.

    Until someone on that Staff can get Kaep to be comfortable with SOMETHING/SOMEONE, it’s just going to end up as a reactor core meltdown.

    I’d say sit him, let him regroup and catch his breath.
    Tired of watching him play RB.
    He’s doing no one any good with that mentality.

    Gabbert can’t run his way out of trouble, which might be a good thing.
    He’ll seek assistance from the playmakers as he should.
    For Kaep, it’s tic-tic-run.
    Gabbert will at least make a decision on where to go with the ball far sooner than Kaep has.

  168. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    CK is known nationally as a bust. NY Times,, questioning his loss of execution. What kind of draft capital can he provide in upcoming offseason?

  169. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bakkentom we’re officially strapped with the same issues DC has with RG III.
    A well paid QB that isn’t capable of dissecting a Defense with his head and eyes.
    They’ve got to find a way to do that or, he’s simply released, to get out from under his Contract.

    OLine improvements certainly wouldn’t hurt either.
    But, if he’s not seeing the field, anticipating routes etc, what’s that doing for his accuracy and touch issues?

    If Harbaugh couldn’t do it, I highly doubt Chryst will.
    Logan might have a shot with the WCO-influences of the timing game?
    But then again, it’s not going to happen quickly, if at all.
    He’s got Rookie level issues that haven’t come close to being corrected.
    Kaep is just not seeing things he should be seeing already.
    He’s lost confidence as well as composure now.

    Here’s a piece from Jimmy Johnson.
    Can’t argue with his assessment on the topic.

  170. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    ‘Skins are protecting themselves from injury related clauses within RG III’s Contract now.
    Kaep has a similar arrangement in his deal too.
    Guaranteed for injury.
    Where do you draw the line on allowing him to continually run down the field like a RB?

    That does nothing for the QB position in the big picture context.
    Why field WRs and TEs that aren’t seeing him throw in their direction with any conviction?

    He’s a mess right now.
    Until they provide better protection, better plans, they might as well sit him and watch what Gabbert can do.
    Can he truthfully be any worse?

  171. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Devastating from a no nonsense bottom line coach perspective. Sandlot football in his 5th year. With all the coaching attention and inputs from others of football significance.

    How many others would get this attention at this performance level. He turned himself into a bust. This O is a continuation of Harbaugh. One O with continuity of coaching. Something Alex Smith never got, changing almost every year for him.

    He is now a known quantity. An uncoachable stupid waste of resources. Little sticks and now his draft capital is what, whale snot.

    Bench, then trade or release. Draft the new QB, ensure he has great learning aptitude. Pro offense in college preferable.

  172. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Wrangler Jesus should be getting a whole hell of a lot more heat than he is right now. Currently, Kaep’s getting all the heat, but Wrangler Jesus is the problem.

    Carlos Hyde just got 8 carries all game long. 8 carries! That’s ridiculous. If you think you’re going to beat the Green Bay Packers on Colin Kaepernick’s arm, you’re smoking crack, and Wrangler Jesus appears to be workin’ the street corner.

    If I was the HC of the 49ers, Colin Kaepernick would have 8 passing attempts, not Carlos Hyde with 8 running attempts. I’d have Hyde and Mike Davis both running the ball with dynamic run designs.

    Two years ago I said the 49ers should draft two or even three running backs. I liked Jeremy Hill and Devanta Freeman in the draft. If the 49ers had drafted either of them, along with Hyde, they could run the ball all day long, eat clock and control the game regardless of how bad the 49er O line is.

    I’d have Kaep under center, handing the ball off all game long and he’d occasionally throw from play action. And I know what Wrangler Jesus is thinking….”But Sir Spitblood: Kaep is facing 8 and 9 in the box, daring us to throw… so we throw.” Wrong.

    If you’re facing a loaded box you bring in bigger personnel. You out big their bigs, and also have dynamic run plays. If the O line sucks, it’s easier to run block.

    Didn’t Tomsula and Baalke say in the off season “We are going to run the ball.” Did Wrangler Jesus get the memo?

    The 49ers are still a 2 or 3 win football team regardless if Wrangler Jesus gets a clue and starts to the run ball, but at least games would be more palpable.

    And really, Reggie Bush has no place on this team. He’s just another Trent Baalke free agent waste.
