Browns 24, 49ers 10

The Blaine Gabbert Era turned a jubilant corner last week against the Bears, only to run smack into a brick wall this week in Cleveland. The two win Browns completely dominated the game, out gaining the 49ers 481-221 yards, with a 15 minute time of possession edge — the same edge as last week against the Bears, without the fluke victory attached to it.

Gabbert was sacked nine times, after being sacked only eight times in his previous four games. The Browns running attack — last in the league coming into the game — racked up 230 yards. There are more grisly statistics available, for the train wreck devotees, at

The Browns had former 49er safety Donte Whitner play up in the box to cut off Gabbert’s primary weapons, the dump off pass to RB Shane Draughn and the QB eight yard scramble for a first down. Once these weapons were neutralized, Gabbert had very little left in his arsenal.

The entire York family showed up for the game, from daddy and mommy all the way down through Jed York and various younger entities. No doubt they were expecting to see an easy victory. Needless to say, these coin counters received vivid, red faced evidence of their criminally negligent stewardship instead.

Excuse me for a moment. [Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!]

Whew! Okay. Let’s see. Yorks, right. [Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!]

Let’s move on to HC Jim Tomsula instead. [Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!]

The players. Let’s try them. WR Anquan Boldin refused to discuss the O-line play for fear he would be throwing someone under the bus. Vroom, Vroom! LT Joe Staley wondered how a 4-8 team could have the audacity to be over-confident. Center Dan Kilgore called remarks like that “just stupid.” ILB Navorro Bowman was caught with a private thought bubble over his head as he stared into his locker, wishing he’d retired along with fellow ILB Patrick Willis.

Fans clutching any hopes for “an improbable playoff run” can now release their woeful grip on delusion. Sunday’s loss eliminated the Niners from the playoffs. And guaranteed a losing season. And moved the Niners back into sole possession of last place in the NFC West. Maybe next year. [Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!]

Meanwhile, GM Trent Baalke remained unfazed by the day’s events, as he moved yet another Safety up to the top of his 2016 draft board.

Ladies and Gentlemen, your 2015 San Francisco 49ers. Seriously?!

    Carlos Hyde and Mike Davis are both on IR.
    If Mike Davis weren’t hurt, would he be a suitable fill in and backup for Hyde?
    The stats don’t say he is. Davis played in 5 games before he was injured. He carried the ball 25 times for a total of 24 yards.
    His best run was for 5 yards. Those stats scream mediocrity

    Mike Davis has much to prove to win a job in the next training camp. Niners need to draft another backup regardless.

  2. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “First time in franchise history that the 49ers have given up over 480 yards three times in one season.”

  3. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “49ers have allowed at least 230 rushing yards in 2 of past 4 games. They allowed 230-plus rushing yards in 2 games from 1981-2014.”

    Yep, we truly suck this year. Jedi will have to something about this mess. Hopefully he’s lining up the ducks right now.

  5. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Is Winder here for comic relief? This poor little guy still thinks Jed knows how to fix it. Poor little guy….

  6. winderNo Gravatar says:

    spit- That’s funny. There is the possibility that Jed will open an ear to some good football advice. Since I’m not a shipjumper my hope is that he hires a good GM and steps out of the way. Go Raiders

  7. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    I have learned my lesson.

    DO NOT FEED THE TROLL (especially one that’s a sociopath) and whose name rhymes with shit.

  8. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Ex Niner TE Carrier tore his ACL/MCL yesterday and is out for the year.

    Brandon Thomas must really suck if they won’t even give him a look on this leaky oline. Pretty sad to hide him like this.
    Just like Baalke missed with Looney who was also too hurt to play as a rookie.

  9. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Winder – I am a ship jumper and that ship isn’t just going down but it’s sunk, brother. Let’s look at some numbers, shall we?

    Denise and John took over the team in 1999. They admittedly took over a team with salary cap problem, but Walsh got them back into contention quickly. Denise and John’s record before handing the team over to lucky sperm Jed was 83 -125. That’s terrible. That’s god awful.

    Then, in 2009, Jed took over the team officially. He was actually more involved and technically running the team in 2007 and 2008, but he was officially tapped as lucky sperm in December of 2008. Jed’s record without Harbaugh is 19-29 assuming a 5-11 year this year which might be generous. But if you factor in the 2007 and 2008 years in which Jed was basically running the team, his record is an even worse 31-49.

    The overall York numbers without Harbaugh are 83-125.

    John and Denise inherited a mess and turned it over to Bill Walsh to fix, who fixed it and also took the 49ers to the playoffs under Jeff Garcia, but there’s no more gurus for the Yorks to inherit from Uncle Eddie. The organization is fresh out.

    Then… just in case you weren’t paying attention, John hired Nolan who brought along with him a great talent evaluator in Scot McCloughan. The two built up the roster and Harbaugh correctly assessed it was a good roster – so Harbaugh joined forces. But Jed York fired both Scot McCloughan and Jim Harbaugh. The best two things to happen to the York-led San Francisco 49ers and Jed York fires them both? – and York ran a smear campaign against Harbaugh? And you think, Winder, that York is going to go out and find another good GM or another good head coach to rebuild this team?

    Trent Baalke ran this team into the ground letting guys like Delanie Walker (who’s now a stud in Tennessee), Ted Ginn (awesome with the Panthers), Donte Whitner, Dashon Goldson (helping rebuild the Redskins), Ricky Jean, Iupati, Terrell Brown, Aldon Smith and others walk while Baalke so wisely replaced them with 2 million dollar a year Blaine Gabbert, semi retired Bethea, Reggie Bush .. and don’t get me started on his draft choices.

    We all know Trent Baalke sucks as a GM. That’s crystal clear. Even the dim-witted NJ who built a Baalke shrine in his living room out of mashed potatoes (Close Encounters reference) is now singing another tune regarding Baalke. Baalke is a problem but not the biggest problem. The biggest problem with the 49ers is that Jed York didn’t see or couldn’t assess that Trent Baalke was destroying the roster. And if Jed York can’t see that early on, before we did, why do you think he’s going to be able to find a solution to this current mess? He thought Jim Tomsula was going to be a good choice. Jed usurped Trent’s authority in the Gase hire and brought in Tomsula for god sakes. And regarding fixing this mess, 49er fans have another crappy situation to contend with on top of the fact that Jed can’t evaluate: The league knows Jed fired both Scot McCloughan and Jim Harbaugh – the two best things to ever happen to this organization under York that weren’t inherited (Walsh). And they way he did both… Leaking to the press McCloughan had a drinking problem? Smearing Harbaugh while Harbaugh was still the head coach here? Tweeting mid game? Would you coach for Jed?

    So with overwhelming evidence to the contrary, Winder… Why in the world do you believe Jed York has the talent or the ability to fix this mess? When overwhelming evidence is denied or ignored, that’s generally called delusional thinking. Winder? Are you delusional?

  10. winderNo Gravatar says:

    spit- That was a fine narrative, a little long-in-tooth but fine nevertheless. No one is saying that Jed isn’t a sniveling, low life dirtbag. The only thing is, he’s still young and maybe he can pay someone who can straighten this boat ride out.

  11. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “Alex Boone knee injury not believed to be serious. But with just three games remaining, he is unlikely to suit up again this season.”

    7. DET (4-9)

  14. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Win or lose one can always count on the dishonest press to play their role in warping opinions. One minute they’re looking for player quotes to support their highly unqualified rah-rah position coach as the shining example of Jed York/Trent Baalke’s new direction in coaching, and the next minute they’re looking for player quotes to undermine the same guy.

    The press doesn’t ‘just report’ anything. The press drives an agenda. In politics, new-age political correctness, and stuffing the ballot boxes to their own ends. The ‘reporting’ on this team is no less fraudulent and disgusting. Little minnows trying to show they can swim and land a more powerful job with the big bullshitters to please the even bigger bullshitters.

    Most “reporters” are mere dealers in shit. Bullshit, horseshit, dogshit and batshit. They are completely unwilling and maybe unable to ‘report’ anything without burying it in some shit first.

    Some people still think guys like Walter Cronkite were opinionless unbiased reporters of facts.

  15. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    It’s a good thing Baalke and York decided to go against all sanity and stated policy and cave to Boone’s hold-out demands. Idiots! How happy is Iupati the same idiots let him walk?

    Snarling in triplicate today, NF?

  18. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    I laugh at the idiots who wanted Harbaugh fired. Why? Because they didn’t see this would happen after Harbaugh left.

    Who wanted Harbaugh fired? Rob. Chuck. Reno. Dennis.

    I rest my case. Pure idiots those four.

  19. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Snarling? I prefer to label it provocative posting to engender deep thought and discussion.

    I throw in the sarcastic ones as a convenient alternative to beating the shit out of idiots.

    Wrong audience I guess.

    Some real barn-burner playoff races in the NFC East and AFC South. Riveting drama.

  21. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Beckham makes a great TD catch in the end zone with the zebra within 16 inches and full view to call it an incomplete pass.

    How can anyone talk about the current state of this team or the league without being snarky toward such absolute incompetence at every level?

  22. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I think many of us have agreed to be snarky when it comes to the level of Officiating incompetence in the League NoFear49er.

    They flat out SUCK.
    If I turned in their level of work on my job, I’d be looking for employment elsewhere.

    Only in Blindino/Goodell World I guess?

    Said it many, many times.
    VEGAS Connection.

    This is the joystick controller for the League.
    Connected directly to Sin City.

    Just like the active player decisions being made a half hour before kickoff.
    Tweak a line, by removing an important player, once the bets are in?


  24. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    The Giants are going to be stacked again this year, especially if Matt Cain finds any semblance of his old form. Giants, Warriors and what could have been with the 49ers if Harbaugh stayed….. Could have been dominating Bay Area sports teams. Too bad the Bay Area has been cursed with Jed York.

    Here’s how I’d set the rotation:


    I’d make Peavy long relief. Only reason I’d sandwich Heston in between Cueto and Samardzija is because he’s home grown talent and even though he struggled last year while showing flashes of brilliance, I’d place home grown talent above free agent acquisitions…. to a point. I’d also challenge Cueto while taking pressure off Samardzija.

    If Cain can find anything left in the tank, the Giants will win the Series again…

  25. winderNo Gravatar says:

    Our division is one of the toughest in the league. If Cueto stays healthy we will be right in the mix. When healthy I think we have the best infield in the league.

  26. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    I said it before they played Cleveland.
    The Browns game had all the earmarks of last year’s Raiduh game.
    Last year the Raiduhs were slaughtered by the Rams in the week before. In similar fashion the Browns lost to the Bengals 37-3 in the week before.
    Also in 2014 the Raiduhs had only won one game at the time and were the worst team in the league.

    Tomsula denies it but Staley could be right that they did overlook the supposedly crappy team.

    Coaches had no tangible game plan and were ill prepared.

  27. winderNo Gravatar says:

    We were definitely out-coached and out-played but that’s who we are this year. There is no sugar coating that can stick it’s just ugly.

  28. rtfireflyNo Gravatar says:

    OK, this week’s prediction will be tough. I see the Niners standard 15 points (5 FGs – 3 set up by McCarron INTs giving great field position). The Bengals, however, are a big ? I know less than nothing about AJ McCarron. 13 pts, that’s a good a guess as any. The Niners home D is a different animal than the road D.

    Niners 15 Bengals 13

  29. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    McCarron throws for 5,000 yards passing in a single game against the Niners. Dalton loses his job and has to go back working at the Double Deuce. Fourteen. Thousand. Nine Hundred. Sixty. Four to two (bad snap), Bengals. GO BENGALS!!!!

    And Winder – Why don’t teams learn? Duffy? You don’t need big free agent acquisitions. Give your homegrown talent a chance. Best infield in the bigs… by far.

  30. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Niners play a Bengal’s team with a backup QB trying to maintain their playoff position this week.

    A blow hard who used to post here said if a team lost their starter for any length of time they were dead. As usual the facts prove this bag of hot air clueless and proven a dimwit.

    Yet we see the Colts, Broncos, Steelers, Texans, Vikes, Egos, Jests and Bills have to play entire games with a backup QB for
    extended stretches and still remain in the playoff hunt.

  31. rtfireflyNo Gravatar says:

    Well, Spitty, they’ll probably prepare for Carson. “When asked after the game, Niners defender X said ‘I didn’t know who that Mac guy was'”.

  32. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    RT – Carson? They’ll be watching film of Ken Anderson.

    When asked after the game, Aaron Lynch said “There was just no way we were going to let them do the Ickey Shuffle on our home turf, no way.”

  33. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Funny how the state of the Niners mimics the state of the union. In both cases there is a glaring lack of leadership, of competence. As one presidential candidate says “We are led by stupid people”. In the sense that football is a metaphor for battle, war. the comment about the nation “We don’t win anymore” applies directly here. But I digress.

    Gotcha RT 15-13 Niners. I’ll go with 17-15 Bungles and have more to say later; it’s dinner time…

  34. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Hey anyone know where Tom bakkentom is? Haven’t heard from him in awhile. Maybe the plunging oil price has affected his job and affected him that way. He did say he worked in the oil patch of ND and lower prices might affect him. Tom, you there?

  35. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    He hasn’t logged in since right before the Bears game. Don’t know why.

  36. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    This is wild speculation now fueled by a Scott Ostler article.

    Dream owner should not be Larry Ellison who is an egomaniacal jerk.

    IMO ideal owner would be Joe Lacob who has made the Warriors
    into a model franchise with best management team and coaching staff in basketball. He has hired Jerry West as a consultant and valued advisor and he listens to that advice.
    Right now just wishful thinking but that would end the dumpster fire and this embarrassment.

  37. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    My prediction? If we manage to beat the Bengals while their QB is hurt, Jed will beat his chest and proclaim it the Mother of All Moral Victories. Won’t *that* be fun?

  38. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    More speculation fueled by bad decisions made last year by Jed with Harbaugh’s dismissal and replacement by a mediocre over his head defensive line coach surrounded by a bunch of leftover coaches looking for a paycheck

    Author thinks Jed is now the most loathed owner in professional sports.

    Yorks are seeing trend in seat licenses going for below cost as well as individual game tickets selling for below cost.

    Quick fix is replacing coach and GM and making the right hire to
    make the team more competitive because Jed and Baalke clearly made the wrong hire in Tomsula. Getting flexed out of prime time this week is a slap in the face to the franchise.

  39. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Becoming a common theme.
    Radnich thinks Levi’s will be half empty and York will be further humiliated and that’ll force many changes.

  42. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Looks like my call for a boycott of Levis brief and puny as it was earlier this year, was shared by many. Not surprised Bullit with all the negative stuff went down. We here know in excruciating detail how, who and why that went down. The results of that egotistical folly are now evident = incompetent coaches, dispirited players, pissed off fans, emptying stadium and LOSSES. Not just financial losses for the owners but the destruction in faith, trust, support for them by us the paying customers. Big losses. Morons. We are led by stoopid people. Hmmm, sounds familiar.

    Oh and LOSSES on the field as well. 4-9 with three to go. Is anyone here surprised? Of course not. Perhaps the message of utter disgust with incompetent leadership will be received by those who now feel pain in the only way that registers with them = in their wallets. Excellent, let them feel it plenty. It is about time disdainful jerks face reality = We do not like you, nor trust you. We respect you as much as you have respected us. And here’s the best part = it’s not going to change. You’re fired!

  43. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Here’s an interesting slant to the Levi Stadium ghost town issue. It’s great that there’s billions of dollars in the Silicon Valley area, but that’s because people in that area are smart. They aren’t your normal mid-west knucklehead, dragging his wife (literally) to games. That means they won’t fall for lipstick on a pig.

    It’s great that Jed York has built a great stadium in an area of real wealth, but it’s a double-edged sword because smart people are hard to fool. In the coming years, Jed York is not only going to have to put lipstick on a pig, but he’s going to have to hire a PR department just for the pig. In short, Levi Stadium is going to be a ghost town no matter what York does. That area will see right through York. Hell, Musk is working on way to prevent the movie Terminator from happening… right now. Musk is literally working on ways to keep artificial intelligence from turning against mankind. Do you think anyone who works in or around Musk is going to pay to watch a Jed York product. And that basically goes for any executive in Silicon Valley. Hell, a kid with a “Go Fund Me” site knows York’s a loser. The first thing that will happen is that Levi’s will stop paying on the naming rights to the stadium. Spin that, York.

  44. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Maybe the silver lining in the failing franchise fortunes IS that the Yorks will do themselves and us a favor and sell the team. How much pain (financial) can they absorb? How many years will it take? Would love it if Lacob stepped up because another rotten owner will fix nothing. Longer it takes to sell the less the Niners are worth = price goes down month by month.

    I can dream can’t I?

  45. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    This should tell you how the clueless coaching staff is running things.
    Hayne has not been practicing punt returns since he was cut and re-signed to Practice Squad.

    So why have him around? The ST coach says he has 18 years of football to learn.
    Tomsula is the head clown of a clown circus.

    Here are this weeks prognostications (= wild ass guesses) as our peerless panel seeks answers to the questions: “Are the Niners really a steaming pile of crap heading for 4-12?” or “Are they merely as bad as the US economy, 7-9?”

    Rtfirefly: Niners 15 Bengals 13. OK, this week’s prediction will be tough. I see the Niners standard 15 points (5 FGs – 3 set up by McCarron INTs giving great field position). The Bengals, however, are a big ? I know less than nothing about AJ McCarron. 13 pts, that’s a good a guess as any. The Niners home D is a different animal than the road D. Niners 15 Bengals 13

    Sir Spitblood from Geneoushire: Niners lose. McCarron throws for 5,000 yards passing in a single game against the Niners. Dalton loses his job and has to go back working at the Double Deuce. Fourteen. Thousand. Nine Hundred. Sixty. Four to two (bad snap), Bengals. GO BENGALS!!
