Buccaneers 27, 49ers 9

The 49ers responded to HC Kyle Shanahan‘s BYE week exhortations and threats by laying a turd Sunday in Tampa Bay.

There were some bright spots littered within the fecal display. Rookie WR Dante Pettis got some playing time and caught 4 passes for 77 yards and a TD. TE George Kittle continued his mostly pro bowl caliber play, and RB Matt Breida gained 106 yards on a mere 14 carries. And DT Deforest Buckner had a sack and two tackles for a loss.

That’s about it for the feel-goodly news. The O-line gave up four sacks. The secondary served up their usual torched sandwich. And the team had only two sustained drives all day, which netted a TD and a FG. Other than that, it was some variation of three or four plays for squatola, or a quick forward thrust followed by a quick backward stumble, resulting in six punts and two interceptions.

At 2-9, the Niners have improved on the 1-10 they were last year at this time. Probably not enough of an improvement to break out the party hats, I would think. More likely to invoke memories of Peggy Lee’s “Is that all there is?”

Unlike last year, though, there will be no season ending five game winning streak. Nobody is coming to the rescue. The team will be lucky to win even one more game out of the final five. Making year two of the Shanahan Era a regression. A failure.

The same cannot be said for Reuben Foster‘s ex-girlfriend Elissa Ennis, who finally made good on her year long promise to ruin Foster’s career. In all fairness, Foster handed his head to her on a platter by continuing to see her even after her first DV accusation, and her second just last month, and finally on Saturday night for the third strike. It’s difficult to tell if her persistence or his stupidity was the most telling factor in this saga.

    As for Foster I attribute it to simple stupidity as evidenced by this smiling post after he was out of jail yesterday


    The picture says it all. WTF is he smiling about? Foster just pissed away your future and might be working soon at the local Piggly Wiggly.
    He wants people to pray for him??? This guy is a total dumbphuck.

  2. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Here is hoping like hell Lynch and company DO NOT emulate that draft disaster of last year.

    Foster now 100% waste and Thomas 75% waste. Please Lynch, no more jock to jock feelings clouding player judgement. You aren’t an on air personality gauged by entertainment value anymore. In fact, stay on the sidelines and let Adam Peters execute on draft analysis.

    Obvious Thomas a tweener in dline no man’s land. Michael Bennett had two sound edge rushers on both sides of him forcing both OG to shade to help the OT’s. Bennet was a system DE.

    Niners, please keep Lynch away from the coffee brewer. Coffee is for closers.

  3. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Question. Is KStreet a better big DE/nickel DT than Thomas.

    If so then showcase Thomas in these final 5 games and trade him for draft capital in 2019.

  4. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit the irony (sheet stupidity) of that pic is that is NOT Ennis with him.
    Any wonder why his personal life is a mess?
    2 Honeys want Da moneys.
    Good luck with that Romeo.

    Should be hysterically entertaining drama on the next booty call, when the game checks stop coming in.

  5. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    York & Co got exposed for their distorted tactics in the end.
    Zero tolerance was applied to TBrock in an identical circumstance, where Lynch’s guy Foster got the 0.05% option.
    What goes around, comes around.
    Karma wins again.
    And, Brock was acquitted.


    Curse of the York’s.

  6. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    This is where our beloved 9ers are in the real NFL.
    Looking like the 2nd coming of Jerruhs World.
    Rich bastards in over their heads.

    The SF Neophytes

  7. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    6 Picks coming in April
    If Lynch doesn’t turn it into 10 Picks somehow, this rudderless vessel will remain adrift, until the next regime is hired.

  8. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    I see Shanahan tossed Mullens under the bus after the game. It’s never Kyle’s fault!

  9. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    York will be finished paying off Tomsula after this year, and after next year, he’ll be done paying off Chip Kelly. So Shanny better get something done next year, or …

  10. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Mixed bag here. Hypercritical of coaching and personnel moves yet some want the team to tank.

    I want them to win as many games as possible. The reality of the situation is if you have a weak roster and some of the better players go down to injury then you’re really hurting and sometimes playing guys that were on the street a few weeks ago.

    The loss due to Foster’s foolishness was a punch in the gut and unforeseen until at least the offseason especially if he was one of the cornerstones to your defense. The secondary was suspect to begin with and now with injuries you’re playing with practice squad players in the backfield.

    Not in favor of tanking unless it’s the last week of the season.

  11. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    And who lines up to work for Jed Skeebs?
    I may as well apply for a GM role.
    Any qualifed candidates won’t come near that clown.
    Or, he’ll be forced into a Gruden arrangement like Son of Al handed out.

  12. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit they’re tanking just fine.
    It’s masked by incompetent Coaching with less than stellar personnel.
    They paid extra for Foster and got the baggage he was carrying all along.
    Now he’s a lost Pick+ without compensation.
    Lynch and Co are not faring well simply because they’re extremely green at what they’re paid to do.
    You get what you pay for.
    Higher Pick position improves odds of landing better talent, only if you know what value to place on it.
    Not an easy process,even for the best qualified GMs.

  13. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    One question to you. Why are you so critical of Lynch yet you seem to keep giving Baalke a pass on his multitude of mistakes.
    Just asking

  14. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Baalke is gone Bullit.
    York/Paraag remain.
    What’s done is done.
    Nothing much has improved from my vantage point.
    How about yours?
    VMcD sure seems better in Pittsburgh.
    Wonder why?
    Coaching? System fit?
    York’s have handcuffed this Franchise from the start.
    This is simply their ROI.
    Drive away competent football guys and you get an uphill struggle in return.
    Here we are.

    I like Lynch.
    He’s simply as raw as raw can get at what he’s being asked to do.
    Hoping it gets better just like you are.
    Can’t disagree that he missed on Foster and maybe Thomas can you? That’s 2+ 1st RD Picks not doing much.
    It happens all the time in the NFL.

  15. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    How many games has Brady/Brees/Rodgers etc played, before landing a Contract like Jimmy landed?
    Sure hope Shanny and Lynch got that deal right.
    He’s got to be the luckiest QB alive, to have that kinda scratch in his pocket, for the amount of game film he has to his name.

  16. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Perhaps, in a do-over frame of mind, it all started when Paraag/McCloughan couldn’t coexist within the York’s world?
    What coulda been huh?
    SF-Troop, here we are.

  17. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “Jaguars named Cody Kessler as their starting QB.”

    Is that worse than getting ousted for Blaine Gabbert?

  18. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    McCloughan was canned because he has and had a drinking problem and that has been a pattern for the last 20 years. He’s very talented but just couldn’t keep off the sauce and was plastered.

    It cost him his job and his marriage. The Redskins used that as an excuse to fire him recently.

    McCloughan is a very good GM but has demons that he can’t shake.

  19. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    It started, when the Yorks got this team.

  20. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    The contract for Jimmy G was a no brainer. If the Niners didn’t give him the deal there are easily at least 10 teams in the NFL
    that would given him the money.

    I think Jimmy G has more upside than any of the crop of QBs from the last 2 years.

    I am a realist and when Jimmy G was lost for the season so went the chance for a winning season.

    I still think however they finish the year impacts next season.

    If the team tanks what’s the point of even watching the coming games? I think we are all looking for the younger guys to grow and show they belong.

    Often overlooked is the drafting of McGlinchey who seems to be a solid tackle that can anchor a line for the next 10 years.
    Still think Pettis can play in this league when given the chance and look forward to what he can do in the next few weeks.

    Without Foster the LBs don’t get mentioned and Foster’s replacement Elijah Lee seems lost. That has to be addressed for the future. The guy that should replace Foster Brock Coyle is hurt and done for the year.

  21. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Advice to all

    Let sleeping Jeds be. The fact that he has been quiet since Lynch took over is a good thing. Same for Marathe.

    Lynch is taking all the shots from fans just like Lacob did before the Warriors beame relevant.

  22. winderNo Gravatar says:

    My guess is KS is continually blowing in Lynch’s ear. I think that Jed has done quite a bit this year and last to improve the team. It’s not Jed’s fault that we suck on the field this year.

  23. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    It’s the culmination of ALL things York that have us where we are.
    the 2 MBA Whiz Kids were put into Football Ops and, subsequently got us here. Systematic Deconstruction.
    SF-Troop = The Hekawi

    Many moons ago, tribe leave Youngstown because Pilgrims ruin neighborhood! Tribe travel West, over stream, over river, over mountain, over mountain, over river, over stream! Then come big day… tribe fall over cliff.

    Lynch at least, played football at a high level and, made it into Broadcasting.
    All that College/Pro Scouting and, Front Office experience stuff, is just fluff to an idiot Owner after all.
    No one else with any solid credibility was willing to step onto Jed’s Merry-Go-Round at the time.

    Now he learns on the fly, while he provides cover for the Tribe of Idiots behind the curtain.

  24. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Heck yeah, hit me one more time.

    Appreciate the humor. Helps to get through the weekly BOHICA nightmare.

  25. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    From BDN, with love.

  26. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    If York just signs the checks and doesn’t meddle I have no problem with him being out of sight.

    Like I said so far he’s let Lynch run the team and hasn’t stuck his nose in.

    The Browns are winning with an interim coach. How dysfunctional are they? They floated out the name of Condeleeza Rice as a potential candidate for their head coach.

  27. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Foster has been claimed off waivers. Don’t know which team yet.

  28. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Redskins get Foster.

  29. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    So we’re off the hook for his contract no matter what, then, right? The Redskins claimed him, they have to pay him. Or deal with any lawsuit.

    Works for me.

  30. winderNo Gravatar says:

    NJ- I think we have some pretty good football guys in the FO already. I know the Yorks have destroyed this team more than once but I think in the last couple of years Jed is actually trying to make it right.

  31. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    What a difference a year makes. Foster’s 2017 performance made him untouchable to a majority of fans. His 2018 has no one on his side. We can easily find his better in 2019 or 2020 draft.

  32. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Agree Winder, to a degree anyway.
    Jed realized the carousel of Coaching got him nowhere. Too little too late however.
    What still sticks in my gears is how easily all of this could have been avoided.
    Dr Daddy started it, then put the Whiz Kids in place to shield himself.
    So many similarities to Jerruh World it makes me want to puke.
    Spend heavily on all the football guys you can get in the Front Office.
    Lynch is learning on the fly.

  33. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Foster on the Goodell exempt list.
    ‘Skins can’t do anything with him until Herr Roger makes his decision.
    This should be interesting…

  34. RobNo Gravatar says:

    Looks like NOFEAR was right about Foster !

  35. robNo Gravatar says:

    I can’t believe we’re in contention for the first pick in the draft ! Sounds like a great chance to finish building this team before Jimmy G is ready to go !

  36. robNo Gravatar says:

    We also have a lot of cap space left !
    WR and pass rusher anyone ?

  37. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    It’s going to come down to salary cap management when it comes to making decisions. If they re-sign Armstead and give him a pay bump that precludes them from drafting a Dlineman at least in the first round because they have Buckner and Thomas to think about in coming years. Buckner for sure is going to get big bucks so Lynch has to determine between Armstead or Thomas, on who fits into their plans and has more upside. If they don’t sign Armstead then they use the high choice on a Dlineman.

    If you spend 25% of your salary cap on 4 players for your line it’s going to impact the other units on your team.

  38. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Ruben Foster is an idiot.

    I am more than certain one of the conditions of his reinstatement was never having anything to do with the woman as long as he was under the Niner’s payroll. He ignored this and got himself into an altercation. Apparently when you tell him not to touch the chainsaw he can’t resist and is willing to lose a digit.

    The picture he posted after the arrest with his smiling with his new girlfriend just shows he doesn’t give a shit.

  39. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Apparently the Deadskins were the only team claim Foster on waivers.

    “By Tuesday night, 31 NFL teams – including the linebacker-needy, damaged-goods assembly line known as the Cincinnati Bengals – had decided Foster should be made to wait for future employment. That is a hell of a statement, considering his status as a wildly talented first-round pick from the 2017 draft. It’s the kind of currency that usually has NFL personnel men lining up around the block, yet nearly 97 percent of the league’s teams backed away from this one. All except for the Redskins.”

  40. NoFearNo Gravatar says:

    Dan Snyder’s not always the sharpest tool in the shed. They’ll end up cutting ties with Foster or wishing they had.

    I have to give Snyder lots of credit though, for standing up to the maniacal PC SJWs in flatly refusing to consider changing the name of his team. Not many, with something to lose anyway, in today’s world can muster the courage.

    Not many here to allow someone else was right either.

  41. winderNo Gravatar says:

    Nofear- “Not many here to allow someone else was right”.Lol, there are a few.

  42. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Reuben Foster and Aldon Smith should be remembered as cautionary tales that character matters.

    It doesn’t matter how many millions the talent is worth, if it is carrying around a ten cent head.

    It’ll be instructive to see if Lynch takes that lesson to heart this coming May.

  43. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    A way too early mock draft having the Niners picking first.
    There will be many more.
    Good way to see the names and where they play.


  44. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    In our situation Bullit that would be a Godsend.
    2-way go from that spot. Pick/Sell.
    Gruden has plenty of RD1 ammo. Hard to see anyone clamoring for a QB just yet however, with the possible exception of NYG, who won’t have to wait long as it looks now.
    At least give Lynch the best option if nothing else.
    Would love to see him turn 6 Picks into 9 or 10 if at all possible.

    Podcast Rob Rang and Scot McCloughan talking about Ruben Foster


    Foster was cut at #:50am EST so little time was wasted

  46. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Sadly, we lost him for nothing.
    I’ve not been impressed with his play, yet gave him some room to grow.
    Find it hard to believe, still, how flat out stupid he is with Ennis.
    She’s now involved as a 3rd wheel. She’ll be a lot more motivated to sink him now I’m sure.

  47. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Should read Foster was cut at 3:50am EST

    Lynch was up early and not a good idea to make your boss lose sleep to put out the dumpster fire you started.

  48. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Here is a list of potential 2019 free agents

    Dee Ford and Frank Clark are standouts as pass rushers if you want to spend some dollars

  49. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    OG Glowinski for Person
    RB Bilal Powell for Alf
    Shouldn’t cost much
    Draft DE
    For starters…

  50. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    If Saleh survives I’m willing to bet they’ll make a run at Earl Thomas too.
    Like Dee Ford & DLawrence if Cowboys chase Earl.
    They probably can’t afford both.
    I’d also move LSU LB Devin White way up now that Dipshit Foster crashed and burned.
