Welp. That sucked.
Lost. The Sequel.
No leadership, no heart.
Calling the Shaman…..
‘Our home field advantage belongs to the visitor’
Plenty of seats available, bring your colors and enjoy yourself.
Can someone tell Jed to stop with the throwback jersey shit?
This ain’t your Uncle’s 49ers, by a LONG shot.
Our identity is more aligned with bargain basement front office baffoonery, spending future Draft capital to ‘win it all now’ on player’s that don’t have the itch to win and Coaching that lacks the ability to correct it.
Sad time in 49er history. We need new strategies in multiple areas. We need a new DC. We need to get rid of the so called veteran talent on both defense and offense. We need to get clubhouse unity back(we truly miss the Buckners and Bournes in our clubhouse and on the field). We need to hire scouts that can actually rate players successfully. We need to keep Shanny out of the draft room. I could keep going but it’s just to depressing.
Let’s play the ‘what if’ scenario.
You know what you got from the guy that backed up Brady by now, or you should have known.
You then mortgage the future to have that former backup become the new understudys’ mentor, while creating a lame duck QB as your leading Man.
‘What if’ you had cut your losses on the former understudys’ lack of ability to lead, gotten a Pick in return, perhaps, and brought in a former Montana worshipping QB, in his twilight years, who WANTED to play here, to groom the new understudy, without creating a lame duck QB situation?
Stupid is as stupid does. Jed.
About those Uncle Eddie glory years again?
You can’t buy desire, but you sure as shit better listen when it knocks on your door.
Especially when he’s wearing more rings than your Uncle Eddie owns.
This concludes the hindsight is always 20/20 portion of my rant.
‘What if’ you didn’t overpay the current leading Man and, opted to deal him away, in order to keep, and pay, another guy who WANTED to be here, but now plays in Indy, and goes by the nickname DeBuck?
Our front office baffoonery in overdrive.
That is how you destroy a winning locker rooms’ morale by insisting you made the right move to hitch your wagon to a former backup that can’t play the leading role.
NJ- I know the buck stop at the top. But I think Jed has been pretty honest about things. He pays football people to make good decisions. Jed shouldn’t have much of anything to do with the day to day operations. His job is to sign checks. I think he got some bad advice from Paarage(sp) on Buckner and Bourne on their contracts. I would like to have been a fly on the draft room wall. I think both Lynch and Shanny have made some terrible decisions on draft picks especially moving up to get someone that doesn’t pan out. I thought Peters was a draft wizard but apparently he isn’t. There are probably 30 teams playing the what if game.
Jed is gullible at best Winder.
I totally agree he should write the check and be invisible.
I’m starting to think that it’s time to spend some money on a bonafide personnel director.
Shanny is not what I expected him to be.
We’re in a self made disaster at the QB position.
If Kinlaw busts, and Aiyuk fizzles, plus the future Picks given up, this ‘win now’ gamble puts personnel decision making squarely in the cross hairs.
Eddie demanded more accountability and, was fiercely dedicated to paying his people for results.
Jed appreciated the example Eddie set I’m sure.
However, his bar is way too low and, he’s relying too heavily on Paraag IMO.
The money Mgr and the owner,tied at the hip, along with the neophyte GM Lynch, (deferring to Shanny), for Offense talent decision making, to me, is dysfunctional.
I was once a diehard Mets fan, along with being the diehard 9ers fan I continue to be.
I watched the Wilpon family do to the NYM franchise what Jed is ignoring now.
The dismantling of a winning roster with poor contract and personnel decision making.
Eddie took no shit.
Jed eats too much of it.
Frank Cashen and Joe McIlvaine destroyed a winning locker room.
I burned my fan card because of it.
Jed needs to grow a pair and get some respect.
Until he separates himself from Paraag, I don’t see much promise ahead with regard to personnel decision making.
Hope like hell I’m wrong.
What Brady could have done, as a long time 9er fan, for this locker room, is light years ahead of what Jimmeh is capable of.
Again, hindsight, and what could have been.
We lack leadership. From ownership on down.
Guys like Staley and Willis, walking away after failed SB results, speaks for how I feel about things in 9er land.
We desperately need another level of resources and results.
Hopefully Jed has some people that can help him make some needed moves. We shall see. Until this year the Niners were a hard team to read mostly because of injuries but that is done now. Even I knew we should have found a way to keep Buckner and in pinch Bourne was probably our best WR.
We have talent.
We severely lack leadership.
Someone needs to punch someone in the face and, inject some winning testosterone.
Jed and Shanny ain’t that flavor.
I suspect that Paraag and Lynch cancel each other out.
Shanny and Jed are then left to break the log jam.
Money guys, Paraag and Jed, clash with football guys, Shanny and Lynch.
2×2 needs a tie breaker.
Jed needs more than reverence for Uncle Eddie’s legacy.
He needs an enforcement proxy steeped in football personnel evaluation.
Guys that play NFL Chess.
Jed is being upstaged by the long time losers like Jerruh and the Bidwell’s.
Guys like Matt Ruhle and Kliff Kingsbury are passing Shanny.
My money is on McVay getting ahead of Shanny next, now that he replaced his overpaid, over-Drafted 1st RD Pick Goff.
We shall see….
If Shanny treats Trey like Kaep 2.0, I’ll be burning my fan card here too.
Wake up Jed. You ain’t Uncle Eddie.
The second biggest Raiduh said it best “winning is the best deodorant”
What is on the field now stinks.
IMO the biggest personnel mistake made was keeping Armstead and trading Buckner. Giving Armstead the contract instead of Buckner in hindsight was stupid. Both Armstead and Kinlaw are average at best but Buckner was something special.
Sad but true Bullit.
Especially when you hear Buckner’s willingness to work with Paraag on a fair deal to remain.
Hence my disdain for having Paraag in such close proximity to personnel decision making.
I’ve longed for a bonafide ‘football guy’ in the FO for eons.
Sure, Lynch is a football guy, technically.
But, we all know, he never came through the scouting and recruiting sectors of the process or, held an executive position.
I’m just tired of the acceptance of mediocrity, especially at the QB position.
Blew my mind to know Brady wanted to finish his career here and, they didn’t see the upside, rather, staying committed to the guy who can’t pull the trigger or throw a deep ball.
Ah. What could have been.
Strictly my opinion….
Paraag made a business decision between Arik & DeBuck based on the budget.
Understandable, considering his financial credentials.
This is where the Blindspot exists.
Locker room leadership, team chemistry concerns, game production as well, all become factors.
I see a critical need to separate Paraag & Jed.
Very similar, IMO, to Jerruh being nudged aside in Dallas.
It’s one thing to be an owner with the power it provides but, objectivity is often clouded by the ‘yes’ men.
Jed has to be more demanding, like Eddie was.
Shit, or get off the pot.
We lost 2 SBs because of poor QB play. Coaching didn’t help either.
When Kittle comes back from injury he needs to tweak his playing style.
He is getting hurt and exposing himself to injury by fighting for the extra yard. That is allowing defenders to take shots at him and his injuries are the end result.
Getting hurt fighting for two extra yards will eventually shorten your career. Going out of bounds is prudent and fighting for yards at a point of the game which is crucial should be coached into Kittle.
He is no good to the team being on IR.
Tight ends are rarely dominant for very long. Seems to be the nature of the Position. Ditka. Bavaro. Russ Francis in New England. They had a few great years, then were good for the rest of their career – but not special. The pounding takes a toll. TEs who play more like wideouts, less physical, seem to last longer but don’t offer the upside Kittle gave in the run game. Not sure this is a trend that can be avoided.
No Khalil Mack this weekend. 49ers need all the help they can get right now.
If we lose to the Bears, the season is pretty much over right there in terms of playoffs. We’re not gonna go 9-1 or 8-2 down the stretch in this division.
Javon Kinlaw had knee surgery and will be out for the rest of the season.
I would say the football Gods are pissed at us. But then maybe it’s just our fault for not drafting better players. Players used to be able to play more than two games in a row before sitting out the next 5 or 6.
Time to meet with the Ohlone Shaman – I’m not kid’n
Bears will be without their Head Coach Matt Nagy who is in Covid protocol.
Bears Special Teams coach Chris Tabor is acting HC.
Have to view this as a positive for the Niners.
I wonder how we would do if Shanny were in Covid protocol. I would love to find out.
Niners win in a very watchable game.
Hey it’s Halloween
Jests beat Bungles with backup QB.
Aint’s lose Winston, their starting QB and go with backup Semien and manage to beat TB12 and the Bucs.
Huge game against Cards next Sunday. Kylar Murray is questionable with a bad ankle and JJ Watt is done for the season.
And to end this Halloween, Star WR Calvin Ridley quit the ATL Falcons today saying he didn’t want to play football anymore. Shades of RT Anthony Davis!! Frightening
New thread is up.
