He Gotta Be He

OTAs begin this week. Unless they were last week and I missed them. Just to be fair and cover my bases, I’ll miss them this week, too.

Everyone is talking about Chip Kelly and his “system” these days. A couple of people, anyway. Enough to notice if you have a good magnifying glass.

Apparently, it’s a very rigid system. If a player doesn’t buy into it, he falls behind and gets shipped to Siberia. DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy are the poster boys for this harsh treatment. The 49ers don’t have anybody that could be cut that would draw any newsworthy attention, so Siberian deportees should pass mostly without notice.

Australian import Jarryd Hayne beat Chip to the punch last week by deporting himself. Not exactly to Siberia, but fairly close to it in a 180 degree sort of way. Fiji. A microscopic island east of Australia way out there in the Pacific Ocean. Apparently, they’re having something called The Rio Olympics and Fiji has a rugby team entered in this colossal event.

Jarryd might have sized up his chances of ever being a star RB in the NFL and, even after promising everyone in the world, on many occasions, that he took this NFL thing seriously, the chance to be a big fish in a small Fijian pond was just too tempting to resist. The lure of the National Hero bit.

Kind of chicken shit if you ask me. Who’s going to believe any promises this guy ever makes in the future? Wimp. Fiji? You gotta be kidding me.

For you glass half-fullers, the Niners will lead the league this year in guys whose names begin with a “DxX.” We currently have four: DeForest, DiAndre, DeAndre, and a DeAndrew. Not to mention a Demetrius and a Devon. Another dark and secret Trent Baalke fetish at play?

    Aw C’mon skeebs, this might just be the only time all year where there is any window for hope at all. Just sayin.

  2. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Hope blooms eternal in preseason but quickly morphs into gloom when,like battle plans, the actual shooting starts. So we should enjoy it now. False and hollow tho it is. Just don’t get addicted to the hope. Hope addiction is a sorry thing to behold. We can all think of individuals who have made themselves look like fools by insisting last years Niners were led by geniuses and would go 11-5 minimum. Hope like dope is trouble waiting to happen.

    More fetishes from the Balkey one? Could be, could be…

  3. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    There is not a lot of depth to withstand key injuries. So with that caveat, we have entered Homer time.

    Is AD being saved just prior to a trade. Kap is safely in rehab for now. The saga of these two is 100% on TB.

  4. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    For all the Social Media conversation taking place from AD, I continue to see reports that he hasn’t filed the necessary paperwork to officially ‘un-retire’.
    Not quite sure what the spin is in that regard.

    Have to admit, I’m somewhat disappointed in what he describes as his mindset to ‘win’.
    A year off, a new System being installed and, all this missed opportunity to get in on the ground floor, suggests he’s simply not in the plans or, not interested in proving himself as a ‘winner’.

  5. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebs I’ll say one thing for Hayne.
    He sold some merchandise for Jed.

    While attending the SF/NYG game last year, I observed quite a few Hayne jerseys during our tailgate hours, mostly of the black/red variety, out this way.
    Not sure if that plays out similarly in the Bay Area?
    But, it was certainly something I took notice of out here in NJ.
    No doubt Jed and The Yorkies got some national publicity, along with a few pesos added to the bottom line with their Hayne Experiment.

  6. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Hayne is another wasted player by the Niner coaches from the recent past. He performed well when given the chance as both RB and KR but was underused. Then demoted and finally signed to the practice squad. Will Team Kelly please use and develop players in a more effective manner? Please?

  7. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    BTW is there any truth to the rumor that we have another Ozzie on the team this year? Thought I read Ronald Blair is from Oz. How long will it be before NFL games are played in Australia?

  8. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Phil I’m not sure about Blair, I do know Jesse Williams with Seattle was an Aussie.
    Sav Rocca the Punter with Philly another.
    AZ recently waived a former Aussie, Joel Wilkinson who tried out as a CB too if I’m not mistaken?
    There’s been a few along the way beside Hayne.
    Pretty sure the Steelers still have Punter Jordan Berry on their roster too.

  9. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    What’s kinda unique is that Blair and Kilgore both got Drafted by us by way of Appalachian St.
    Not exactly a football factory in terms of NFL Draftees.

  10. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Blake Muir, OL, Baylor is the UDFA from Australia. University of Hawaii transfer. Before that HS in the Sydney area.

  11. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Who has skinnier legs, Rashard Robinson or Kap.

  12. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    When I think of skinny – I remember Merton Hanks 😀

  13. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Christian Hackenberg, NYJ 2nd RD out of Penn State, was considered part of next year’s QB draft class. There may be no QB’s worth trading up for next year.

    With a weak QB class in 2017, Kap may be able to find a home elsewhere.

    Are CLE and SF playing to lose this year.

    CLE lost Alex Mack OC, Mitchell Schwartz Rt, Travis Benjamin WR, both of their starting ILB’s Karlos Dansby and Craig Robertson, and FS Tashaun Gipson. They picked up no FA’s of significance, RG III is dogmeat.

    Last year was our exodus and TB/Jed has us in slow build via draft.

  14. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Driskell wasn’t a terrible option for us this year at the price we paid Bakkentom.
    See if Chip can make something out of him this year.
    I’m not too worried about Kaep.
    I still think there’s an outside chance he gets moved before the season starts.
    Wouldn’t hold my breath but, the NYJ and Fitz are still haggling over $$$.

  15. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    So will it come out that Jed nixed the Adam Gase for HC with his insistence of Tomsula as DC. That Adam Gase of OC CHI and now HC MIA.

    Chip Kelly and his O has already been figured out by DC’s. Do not expect any magic. We need to be able to run the ball well enough to make play action work to open up medium and long passes. Otherwise more check downs and short passes on 3rd down.

    The TK article reflects badly on Jed. Is he the most hated owner in the NFL? The least respected among his peers. Wants to be a power playing crony capitalist in Sacramento. California is now a well oiled one party state for Democrap elites.

  16. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:


    Brandon Marshall, Decker, etc. want Fitzgerald back. That gives him leverage. He can be the bridge QB for Hackenberg. He fits.

    Kap? Can’t see his sorry ass out the door fast enough. Not worth the effort to rehab his trade value. He got his Jed money, just like Tomsula. Be gone.

  17. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Not sure of politics and really don’t care but, I’ve been pretty vocal about the Gase issue since he was sought by Trent while still in Denver.
    To hear that all he wanted was to work with Fangio makes my blood boil.
    There was some sort of allegiance to Tomsula that apparently sunk that deal before it left the dock.
    I wouldn’t put that on anyone but Ownership.
    Trent was made to look the fool for wasting recruiting efforts only to have it blow up in his face.

    As for Chip, I do believe he buys into the need for a balanced attack.
    Ground game has to take the heat off the passing plans IMO.

  18. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I’m truly curious about whether Kaep feels he can win his starting job back in SF.
    Why squawk about a Trade before you fight for your old job back?
    There’s something more to this than having his feelings hurt about being benched.
    He’s now seen an offer in Denver evaporate over restructuring.
    If he seriously wants to play for the NYJ, he might soften his stance on a restructure, if he gets another opportunity to do so.
    Fitz doesn’t have the youth factor going for him to do a creative Contract.
    Kaep is young enough to take a longer deal there, with less up front.
    NYJ are not in a position to spend right now.
    We could easily offset some of their expenses with Mo coming to us for Kaep in an exchange of Contract values.
    Something to consider anyway.

  19. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    What a disaster has been foisted on this team by Jed and TB. The handling of AD has zeroed out his trade value. Clinging on Kap for hyped trade value that was never there. Insistence of Tomsula tanking the Adam Gase pickup.

    Repeat the NN fan shot from last year. Guy wants to get Jed in the cage to repay him for all the ill will visited upon the fans.

  20. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    I am still open to MO, even with Buckner. Armstead is no guarantee of 1st RD value. Would absolutely love to go one gap with Quinton Dial as NT. Both Armstead and Buckner do not have the body type for stout Ness in the run game.

    Mo is 6’4″ 315 lbs and can pass rush. The D was inconsistent last year. How much of that due to mismatches in the trenches. We got blasted by CLE because their oline owned us, same with Seattle and Rawls.

    The two Ducks are not the panacea many fans hope for. Dline is a work in progress. Need Mo badly. Let the Ducks rotate on one side with Mo on the other.

    With that dline the ILB’s and OLB’s are 25% better. No more draft picks there. Next year the first two picks are WR1 and LT for the aging Staley. Bad QB class in 2017 it seems. Go with BG in meantime.

  21. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Posted earlier tonight that AD seems to have balked at filing paperwork to un-retire too Bakkentom.
    Not sure what, if anything Baalke has to do with that formality?
    Even with Staley getting up there in terms of age, Trent may have already made some plans with this year’s Draftees to cover for his eventual replacement.
    I’d be looking at LBs early next year as it stands right now.
    With the added competition at CB and WR this year, we might get lucky to find some production.
    All depends on the Kelly System fits right now I suppose?
    If nothing else, Chip has a fairly deep class of youngsters to work with between OL/WR for the time being.

  22. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    NYJ has Hackenberg. DEN has Lynch. Kap has no future at either. How about our 2nd plus AD for Mo. NYJ gets benefit of salary cap relief. Why antagonize AD unless keep him off field and away from Kelly playbook for a trade.

  23. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    We’ve also got an inside track on the DLine, with Armstead and DeBuck being reunited with Jerry Azzinaro from Oregon again.
    Gives Azzinaro a good foundation to build on as these 2 already know what’s going on.
    As is always the case, new Staff has to get these guys on the same page for anything to work.
    From what I’ve read, the Secondary appears to be relying more on Man Coverage.
    Might be a good reason why Ward is being penciled in for a Safety role?
    See where it goes in the next several months.

  24. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    That’s the rub with AD.
    Is he even a fit any longer under Chip?
    If he’s not filing for reinstatement what’s the plan?
    Is it that he doesn’t want to participate in this System or, just isn’t being sought to do so?
    Something doesn’t add up with him or Kaep for me.

  25. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Do we need a super run plugger if we go with the two Ducks, at NT. How big is Darren Lake, the UDFA. Is a small Dorsey or Ian Williams able to compensate for the two Ducks.

    What happened to Phil Taylor from CLE. Is he still available?

  26. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Is Aubrayo Franklin still on staff. Excellent 2 gapper that was the glue in our run D. Can he coach up Darren Lake.

    Is Dan Williams, formerly of ARI, still out there. Do we need a big dude NT to help the Ducks?

  27. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I’ve always been a proponent of the Fat Man in the Middle for a 3-4.
    Seems we favor the penetrator-types.
    Lake is listed at 6’3″/315
    The heaviest guy on our roster is OT Trent Brown at 355.
    I’m amazed at what good feet this kid has at that weight too.
    The other DT we signed from the UDFA Class is Cherry.
    He’s listed at 6’6″/300.
    I believe AFranklin got washed out with the Tomasula Staff.

    Here’s the Coaches as currently listed –

  28. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Azzinaro has ties to Dwight Freeney by way of his time at Syracuse too.
    Not that we need Freeney but, he’s still looking for work last I saw.
    Might not be a bad investment if the price is right along the way.

    Looks as though Azzinaro and Aghobasse are the DLine Coaches for the time being.
    Good resumes for both guys too.
    See how it all shakes out.

  29. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    The one guy that could prove to be most influential in getting the Offense on track is QB Coach Ryan Day.
    He was Chip’s College QB at UNH and, came up from the ground floor in Chip’s System.
    Impossible to predict anything at this point but, there’s at least the appearance of a cohesive Staff in place.
    Gotta be miles better than the rag-tag entourage we worked under last year.

  30. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    No doubt the coaching staff will be better than last year’s. Will this translate into a better W-L record? I would love to be wrong on my 4-12 call.

    Skinny legs? Dion Sanders hands down winner and they worked pretty good for him.

  31. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    The gang that can’t shoot straight rides again. And again and again.

    Is there anything Jed cannot eff up?


  32. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    York with the social skills of an untrained bull in a china shop is going to have a future in politics? Not as a man of the people he won’t. As an elitist maybe because his vote getting skills stink. But money, yeah he got that.

  33. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    The York family, at least from Denise’s side has to deal with regulators so political clout is desired on a resume with them. Nice to have politicians on the payroll. Comes in handy.

    Perfect example is Feinstein’s husband. The most current example is Grandma Kankles. As long as Democraps own the White House the Dept of Justice will not see all that foreign money sloshing around the Clinton Foundation.

  34. robNo Gravatar says:

    Im excited by Brown too.Florida’s own is one big dude. Did you see him in the second to last game last year. He was out running around the 2nd level with the backs looking for someone to block. Wow nice 7th rd. pick!

  35. robNo Gravatar says:

    Brown graded out on the plus side for the year too. Not bad for a 7th rounder thrown right into a starting spot

  36. robNo Gravatar says:

    Another possible HR might be Rogers at WR. He had 1400 yds.last year and is getting rave reviews early on.
    One note of importance might be Miller’s move to TE.
    Besides WR that was my biggest area of concern. I wonder if Miller can make a difference there ?

  37. robNo Gravatar says:

    Jimmy Ward is starting opposite Brock so far. In nickle he’s into slot with Donate Johnson coming in. Good to see it’s starting to click for him. We have a damn goos secondary taking shape IMO

  38. robNo Gravatar says:

    Omg lol nice auto correct. Apparently my phone thinks … donate … Johnson is going to be a part of a damn …goos … secondary !!!

  40. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    The Raiders at 8.5? They have the AFC South and NFC South. That’s money just waiting to be picked up.

  41. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Mettenberg was claimed by the Chargers.
    Giants also claimed him but San Diego had priority.
    Baalke still sitting on his hands.

  42. winderNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah i mean what did we have to lose by bringing him in for a tryout. I think the chargers had first crack at him though.

  43. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Turned in late to 2013 NFC Title game on NFL Network and saw the poor decision by Kap to Boldin with underneath coverage by Kam Chancellor. Announcer said this was typical coverage shown all year by SEA D.

    Kap was staring at it and threw into it for the easy pick. At least we had both Boldin and Crabtree as WR’s. Lots of talent then and we’ll coached. The good ole days.

  44. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    In the playoff game a week earlier against the Packers the same thing happened. Kap didn’t see the Safety Micah Hyde underneath and threw it to him. Fortunately for the Niners Hyde dropped the pick and the Niners lived to play another day.

    One thing about Kap is he’s stubborn and doesn’t learn from his mistakes. Losing to the Seahags Kap defiantly said he wouldn’t change a thing and if he had to do it over again he would go after Dick Sherman.

    I was alarmed to see Kap not see the safety underneath in playoff games 2 weeks in a row.

  45. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    A break from the slow as molasses (re)building the perfect beast by Dr. Jekyll Kelly finds Draymond Green of GSW reaching “peak annoyingness” according to current opponent Steven Adams of the OKC Thunder. In true “He gotta be he” fashion Green sez “I just be me”. This after yammering at Adams and several other Thunder victims game long in their second contest. Adams however was the sole recipient of a Green knee to the groin, inadvertent of course. This must be the basketball equivalent of ‘smash mouth’.


  46. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Oh ok, football stuff. “49ers top 5 positional concerns in 2016”

    From Fooch (David Fucillo) at Niner Nation:


    He lists the top ones from his POV and we have a bunch to choose from.
    1) QB of course

    2) OLB. Is Tank in the Tank or will Team ACL finally contribute?

    3) OL. Will we have an actual pro OL this year or what?

    4) WR. We have one, Torrey Smith. What else we got?

    5) CB. I actually think we’re going to be okay with Ward, Tartt, Johnson, skinny guy Robinson, and the rest of the woodpile

    Bonus = 6) TE. Important position in Chips scheme. What we got.

    We got a lot of bodies. Can they play NFL football?

  47. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Torrey Smith is a home run threat but he is far from being a #1 receiver. He’s been in the NFL for 5 years now and has 34 which averages les than 7 TDs a season. He averages 17.3 yds a catch
    and less than 50 a season. That average of a little over 3 receptions per game means he’s not a great part of the offense.
    Needs to double his catch average to be a factor and move the chains.

    Baalke paid him big money but the production isn’t there.
    The misconception was the Niners needed a home run hitter.
    The combo of Crabtree and Boldin was pretty effective and complemented Gore as a runner because they were both excellent downfield blockers. Not sure of Torrey Smith’s blocking skills.

  48. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Homers can milk positive out of a lot of negatives. We lack a WR1. CHI think they have it with Kevin White.

    Torrey Smith envisioned to take the top off the defense while a WR1 wreaks havoc. Slow build via the draft. Enjoy.

    Here is what I would do. Get MO and the D gets no more high draft picks until the O is fixed.

    WR1 and successor LT drafted next year. BG gets 2016 and 2017 to prove he is Alex Smith 2.0 or better.

  49. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    It’s wait and see on the WR/TE corps.
    For the first time in like 8 years there won’t be a go to guy like Vernon Davis, Boldin or Crabtree to throw to.

    There is some promise but too many unknowns and a couple of guys need to step forward as the “go to” guys. Not really going to know until the first couple of preseason games.

  50. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Matt Barrows reported this from OTAs

    “Trent Brown did not appear to be in good shape yesterday and it was Erik Pears, not Brown, who was running with the first-team group at right tackle.”

    Why wouldn’t Trent Brown come to OTAs in shape because RT was his for the taking? Probably why Brown was a late round pick.
    When you are paid even the NFL Min of $450K a year it is hard to comprehend being out of shape.

  51. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit I’m gonna take a stab at it on TBrown’s behalf.
    Last year there wasn’t a Chip Kelly Offense.

    At 355lbs, I’m guessing his conditioning for this type of Offense isn’t going to be too easy to adjust to.
    I’ve had similar concerns with AD for that very same reason.
    AD might have led everyone to believe he was ‘working out’ last year but, there’s a whole different level of being in shape with Chip.
    Going from the Harbaugh style to the Kelly System is pretty much night vs day for these O-Linemen.

  52. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    If they can get TBrown down into the 330Lb range, I’d venture to guess he’ll be fine.
    Even at 355Lbs, the kid has some tremendous feet.

  53. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Yep T Brown going to have to work a lot harder to get on first team OL. Especially with Kellys uptempo O which is going to separate the guys who really want it…

    Ws getting blasted in OK. This after D Green went to the ‘smashmouth’ again on Steven Adams with the leg to the groin. Tie game went to 40 down. Not a good plan there Draymond. Dubs are going to have to win one in OKC or their season ends

  54. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    So Pears is still practicing as the starting right tackle.

    Oh goody. But hey, we spent two 5th rounders on tackles. Gonna be a long season.

  55. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    If pears is a starter in game one it’ll show you what an epic swing and a miss by Baalke in addressing one of the key needs on the team both in the draft and in free agency.

    Next month Pears will be 34 years old. Not only is Pears mediocre but he’s old. If age was the knock on Bolden (34) who was productive then WTF is Baalke thinking?

  56. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    If you know me at all, I’m all about the lines. With the change from Harbaugh to Tomsula’s zone blocking to The Chipster’s hurry-up, who the F really knows?

    I personally think that Kappy’s gonna shine, but the right tackle sucking in Chip’s offense? Not so much.

    The Raiders are a playoff team this year and one year away from being Super Bowl contenders. The Niners are two years behind.

    We just have to live with it – and draft well.

  57. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    Staley, Iaputi, Kilgore, Boone, Davis.

    Staley, …………………………………………………

    As much as I like Chip, I don’t think he has thhat many rabbits.
    And he doesn’t wear a hat.

  58. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    With this offensive line?

    No, I don’t think Sr. Alez would do well in this offense behind this offensive line. When the play broke down, Alex would scramble to his right, find a surprise in the DE or OLB or corner or FS in his face and would set a Steph Curry-like record of most hot dog vendors hit in the stands in one game. Or season. Or career.

    So start whining about Kappy whenever – I’ll do my best to ignore it and imagine those poor hotdog vendors!

    Deja vu all over again

    Yeah, Kappy sucks. Alex would do better.

    NN has article on Jed York giving 75K to LGBTQ group for backing the issue of opening up male and female bathrooms to Transgender equality.

    Why does he feel like alienating his fan base more with an issue like this. For those questioning his judgement, another creosote soaked railroad tie thrown on the fire.

    Are there any anti-Jed sites out there with their take on silverspoon and his looney politics.

  66. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Are there any articles about politicization of the NFL on bullsheet issues like this. Are there other owners taking any kind of stand on this pressing issue.

    Who has an agenda to press on an issue like this. No place for this in the NFL.

    Does Jed feel the bern?

  67. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Let’s see, the Niners got two #2 picks for Alex Smith.
    They couldn’t even get a 4th round pick for Kap from a team who had Mark Sanchez.
    Seems like Kap’s stock value is pretty low because he is a flawed QB. That’s the truth. Defenses have figured out what makes Kap uncomfortable and unless he overcomes that he’ll be at best average.

  68. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Tom Brady does OK with a ragtag OLINE that changes every week. Kap is washed up at 29. What HC is gonna want to hitch his star to him.

    KICK Kap is Coach Killer

  69. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The way some guys talkm they think Kap is worth a couple of #1 picks.
    It was widely known that Baalke would’ve taken a 3rd round pick for him.
    The Bucs used a 2nd round pick on a kicker. Only Kap’s agent and his fanboys think he still has much greatness to achieve.
    Very true great QBs can carry a team.

    Can Kap even learn Chip’s playbook?

    RG III gets hurt in CLE, Kap can step right in. Hue wants to work with projects and tank the season for #1 in 2017. Kap can build his legacy there.

    Who else will take him. BUFF does not even want him, they drafted Cardale Jones in the 4th RD. Teams desperate for QB would rather go to the draft than waste effort on Kap.

    NYJ took Hackenberg. DEN Paxton Lynch. What does Kap offer over a rookie salary that can be coached up to Kap’s capability.

  71. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    There is no player contract even close to what Kap is costing the niners. Kap will be released. No bidding war for his services.

    Spend Jed’s money wisely. AD may be gone soon. Any Mo sightings?

  72. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    CLE took Cody Kessler, USC QB, in the 3rd. RG III is brittle so Kap could work for them, at least in 2016.

  73. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Are there bets how long RG III will last behind their depleted oline. Alex Mack C and Mitchell Schwartz RT are gone. CLE drafted the project Shon Coleman in the 3rd for RT.

    Safest thing for Kap is get released and stay away from CLE.

  74. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    Alex made the divisional round on an Andy Reid-coached team with a terrific defense and a strong running attack.

    17 starters on IR in 2014 for Kappy’s Niners. Tomsula as HC in 2015 to go with three HOF retirements.

    Good for Alex for his “success”. Just another twelve years and he might get “it”. Just another twelve years.

    Blaine Gabbert’s career highlights with the Jags and the Niners:


  76. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Unfortunately Dubs stumbled twice in OK big time thereby likely depriving us of a primo distraction until the Niners TC opens. Something has broken in the Dubs chemistry making them vulnerable to exit from playoffs soon. My guess is Curry too beat up to set the tone against tough OKC team. Too bad, we could use some distracting from the bottom tier LGBT football guys.

  77. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    I watched all the video links RT suffering as I am from Dubs Letdown Syndrome. In my clever way I assume you like Kap just a tad more than Alex. That was the Kaepernick Greatest Runs highlight reel, correct? I’d forgotten or never really saw all those due to no NFL broadcasts here in paradise. So thanks for the reminders.

    I too am rooting for Kaep to do a ‘resurrection ala AS’ under the new coach. Beating out Gabbert would be another miracle, no? Love to see it happen as the Niners would be better I assume. May get 6-7 wins, huh? We do have a very young team so can’t expect much.

  78. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Judgement call on Kap. His level of play merits a fraction of his current contract.

    How could FO be that careless. And where are we now, stuck in the mud with a dud.

  79. robNo Gravatar says:

    RUFUS-T is pining for Alex. Nice one RT
    Those were the days

  80. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    FO knew what Kap was. Now stuck trying to extricate from a franchise QB contract that he never merited. Jed and Paraag, two left wing geeks continually screwing up a franchise.

    This team is getting very difficult to follow. The Yorks hold the fan base in contempt. They assume they are entitled to fan loyalty.

    Sando is too politically correct giving us a C for the offseason. Should be F. Chip is no savior. If there is a plan, must be gorging on top 5 draft picks.

  81. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    Let’s also entertain the possibility that Kaep was Harbaughs’ guy, not Baalke’s.
    Hence, a good reason why the dissention occurred between GM/HC?
    Tip of the Cap to Paraag on the Contract terms if nothing else.

  82. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    NJ, FO knew from the coaches that Kap was an airhead. No guesses or projections. Even a weak franchise QB contract never should have been tendered to him.

    He is not worth an injury. He should be released, a waste of coaching resources and the Stanford video headset. Lots of young , smart, hungry QB’s out there.


  83. winderNo Gravatar says:

    RT, Yeah even with a flawed Kappy we got a way better shot than with Gabbert. I really don’t think Kappy is the answer anymore and that we shoulda went for a QB in the draft. But we shall have to wait and see.

  84. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    Winder it’s a curiousity to see what could become of Driskel under Chip.
    He was the fastest QB in Indy.
    Taking him late really isn’t a huge gamble either.
    He could potentially be a nice mixture of Kaep’s running ability with a more accurate short passing game repertoire.

    Right now, we simply don’t know what we have with any of them.
    My beef is whether Kaep wants to win his job back or, to simply collect a check while trying not to get hurt.

    I think he’s become a locker room cancer and, can’t earn back the trust of his team mates.
    We’ll find out…

  85. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Focusing on our dubious WR position Grant Cohn has good things to say about Eric Rogers, Torrey Smith, White and Ellington. McDonald continues to be Mr. Drops-a-lot just as he was in college. Miller beats him out for 3rd TE position? Hope so. Good comments too:


    The good and not so good from the 49ers’ 2nd OTA of 2016

  86. winderNo Gravatar says:

    NJ- I don’t know about “cancer” if he was I think there would be more noise coming out. All that crap about Aldon and his girlfriend is just that, crap. As far as Driskel goes he is an unknown who is coming out of a school somewhat similar to what Kappy did in college. Who Knows.

  87. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Yeh, maybe cancer is a tad strong Winder.
    My opinion has been formed on the Nessa story, his seemingly aloof attitude toward team mates on the sidelines, headphone isolationism, the opinion from Joe about him being somewhat of a loner, etc.

    I truly wonder if the guys around him see him as a confident, win at all cost, team leader?
    As a QB, making the BIG Bucks, it seems those things are expected.
    And, when that guy gets into the media whirlwind requesting a trade, can he really be viewed as a guy that wants to win?
    It’s looking like a very selfish way to go about his business.

    Call me skeptical at this point.
    Especially when it appears as though his reason for staying was all about the money.
    If he can’t reclaim his starting job from Gabbert, I’m waiting to see if El Cheapo Jedo is going to pay him to watch from the sideline?
    If he’s not activated on gameday, can his pay be withheld?
    ‘Guaranteed for injury’ money is one phase of the Contract language.
    If healthy, and scratched, I gotta wonder if he qualifies for those game checks?
    IMO, one way Jed can recoup that mega-buck deal is to protect him from injury and, potentially, scratch him from action.

    Stay tuned I guess?

  88. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    IIRC there is a bonus Kap earns being on the 46 who dress for every game. Something like $100K a game.

    If Kap doesn’t play his endorsement deals fade away.
    It’s been a while since I’ve a Kap commercial (Beats, Visa or Jag)

  89. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The knocks against Kap haven’t changed. Kap’s weakness is he doesn’t see the whole field, can only progress no further than a second read and must see a receiver get open before he will commit to throwing that receiver the ball relying on his arm to deliver a laser shot.
    Incapable of throwing receivers open and lacking touch unless Kap refines his game and commits to spending half his day in the film room it’ll be same old crap and same outcome.

    kap’s fanclub will trot out the litany of excuses holding Kap blameless.

    Last season the hype before the season was Kap was a changed QB having been under the tutelage of Kurt Warner. Turns out to be a PR stunt as he showed no signs of correcting his flaws and bad habits. Improved footwork and a quicker delivery were not to be found. Holding onto the ball too long facing pressure and taking the sack would become a staple.

  90. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Per Cam Inman this is how the team was lining up in practice

    First-team offense: quarterback Blaine Gabbert, running back Carlos Hyde, tight end Garrett Celek, left tackle Joe Staley, left guard Zane Beadles, center Daniel Kilgore, right guard Brandon Thomas, right tackle Erik Pears and wide receivers Torrey Smith, Quinton Patton and Bruce Ellington.

    First-team defense: defensive tackles Arik Armstead and Quinton Dial, nose tackle Mike Purcell, outside linebackers Aaron Lynch and Eli Harold, inside linebackers NaVorro Bowman and Gerald Hodges, cornerbacks Tramaine Brock and Jimmie Ward, safeties Bethea and Reid.

  91. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Fangio knows D. He did this. Can Dial do this. Mo can, and be the best at it.


  92. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Another myth and falsehood floated and accepted as gospel on that other blog.

    One of the minions stated that under Harbaugh Andy Lee was the team MVP.

    From the 49ers official website:

    Bill Walsh Award

    The Bill Walsh Award was established in 2004 in honor of San Francisco’s Hall of Fame Head Coach Bill Walsh. Walsh served as the team’s head coach for 10 seasons from 1979-88. In that time, he compiled a record of 102-63-1 and led the team to three Super Bowls. He was twice named Coach of the Year (1981, 1984) and was later named Coach of the Decade for the 1980s. The award, which is voted on by coaches only, is given to the 49ers team MVP, honoring his outstanding individual annual performance.

    2004 DE Bryant Young
    2005 LB Derek Smith
    K Joe Nedney
    2006 RB Frank Gore
    CB Walt Harris
    2007 CB Nate Clements
    LB Patrick Willis
    2008 DE Justin Smith
    2009 LB Patrick Willis
    2010 RB Frank Gore 2
    2011 DT Justin Smith
    2012 LB Aldon Smith
    2013 WR Anquan Boldin
    2014 S Antoine Bethea
    2015 K Phil Dawson


    Do you see Andy Lee listed? He made the Pro Bowl and was All Pro but he was never the team MVP like Phil Dawson was under Tomsula.

    The job of some of the minions is to misinform people and put out BS to advance their agenda. Sounds like a presumptive presidential nominee whose name rhymes with Dump.

  93. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Now now Bullit play nice. No one is knocking your favorite candidates. Are you worried about one of the other candidates? Sounds like you are.

  94. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The presumptive nominee said this today


    Just words. Never explains how he’ll accomplish things, just one promise after another.
    The comparison is an illustration of just saying anything no matter the consequences.

  95. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Proof is looking at the state’s reservoirs last year.
    Seeing is believing.


    Also going up to the Sierra and seeing the lack of snow pack last year proves the presumptive nominee doesn’t know what the hell he’s talking about.

  96. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    I guess you didn’t see the part where he listened to the farmers deploring the waste of our abundant water supplies? Cliches about “Talks but no solutions” are just leftist talking points. Untrue worried Bullit, untrue, shallow my friend. Worry much?

  97. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Time for NEW OWNERS in the political system not just for the LGBT Niners, lol. Best keep your comments FOOTBALL related worried Bullit. You know this is a football blog right?

  98. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    What abundant water supply?

    Just ignore the water in the reservoirs that were falling less than 10% of capacity.
    On this one you are ignoring the truth and frankly speaking you weren’t here in California to witness the drought.

    Show me where Trump is going to make water suddenly appear?
    Not just a talking point. A rational person wants an explanation.

    I’m going to get off this subject of politics. My point originally was just an illustration of people saying “just anything” and selling it as fact.

  99. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Water WASTED on little fish was a complete FAILURE so moonbats DOUBLE DOWN depriving farmers growing FOOD. This is an easy fix for rational leaders. I speak as an heir of a farming family BTW.

    You shouldn’t worry so much. Tho the massive crowds following the soon to be VERY POPULAR Pub nominee might do it. Relax you’ll hardly feel a thing as we put Americans first.

    OK back to the LGBT Niners = How ’bout that $75,000 donation Jed made uh, exposing his sympathies politically? No wonder da Niners have collapsed as weak posers, huh? The Niners may be doomed (very likely) but we the people, even Californians have every opportunity to install NEW OWNERS of OUR political systems. No worries my friend just relax.

  100. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    It’s all about nuts. Since you have a family history of farming the cash crop now is almonds which yield massive profits but also require much more water than other crops. They are producing 4 times the amount of almonds than 4 years ago and most are being exported.

    If you were living in Calif you would know the drought is real as everyone has cut down water use or face fines and higher water bills. Don’t need someone from NY to tell me this is all a sham and if he was elected he would suddenly make the water flow when nothing is falling from the sky. Sounds like a medicine man/snake oil salesman.


  101. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Trump, who you took your third and last unanswered shot at today, said nothing of the sort ‘from NY’. He was responding to FARMERS complaining to him about water restrictions placed on them for many many years. The lib media wants to spin this as “He’s denying the drought” which is typical leftist obfuscation and you fell for it. You worry too much about this strong candidate Bullit but you are not alone. Just try to separate the lefts talking points from what was actually said when you bring up your fear of Donald Trump.

    I don’t have to be in CA to know about droughts and their effects on people = my family has dealt with them for 150 years thank you. More water for farming and less for swimming pools and pretty lawns in Marin.

    Here’s how to solve the ‘water shortage’ in large part = Stop water wasting trying and FAILING to bail out the little fish (which should really be on a pizza) to placate enviro-dreamers, use the water to make money on crops (glad almonds are a money maker) and with some sacrifices from homeowners and businesses. Build more of those Taboo reservoirs? Of course not.

  102. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Phuck the smelt. Farmers could easily create fish farms on their property. Just like what is being done with salmon. Lefties preventING a new dam in the Yuba watershed.

    Why all the immigration of refugees and illegal aliens etc. Democraps using corrupting immigration to change the electorate. Cali now a wasteland of idiots sucking on the govt tit.

    What happens when automation takes away more middle class jobs. Importing poverty for Democrap voters.

    Cdec has reservoir graphs. Shasta topped out at 93% and Oroville at 96%.

  103. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Democraps too busy breeding corruption for their special interests. For the last decade the moron voters should have been electing politicians to expand the supply of water for the exploding population, a choice made by one party state democraps. Desalination plants, water creation projects that are better than old school desalination that centrifuge pure water from polluted and salty water, and build dams.

  104. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Trump is no rino idiot like nice guy McCain and romney. Grandma Kankles is being exposed and continually raked over the coals. Democrap elite will be gutted by november.

  105. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    I love it when my ‘team’ is being underestimated as being clownish, snake oily, weak, unprepared, unprofessional. This is good stuff and I want it to continue and multiply right there in CA. Like Harbaugh said “This is a good thing”. For awhile there when old Jimi took over the team people foolishly disrespected the Niners…like the Eagles, the Patriots, Atlanta, and we serious kicked their butts. Remember?

    So forget being worried or fearful, keep spreading the meme “He’s a clown”. I love it. Yep you have nothing to worry about. Nothing at all. LOL

  106. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The minion on that other blog called Harbaugh, ‘Harbore”.

    It appears some clowns have forgotten how great it is to be a contender and those 44 wins and being in the playoff hunt. It seems they prefer the malaise and mediocrity that characterizes this team. These clowns think the winning under Harbaugh was unwatchable and predicted that Tomsula was an improvement.

    York and Baalke chose to mess with success and what we have now is the end result. No more bravado from Jed/Trent that the team is reloading. Clearly this is a reclamation project and the team is talent poor much like an expansion team. Jed only raises Super Bowl banners so that hubris defines him and makes him look like a trust fund fool.

  107. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    2010 to 2012 drafts. There are 4 players on the roster from those 3 drafts. Players from those drafts are supposedly in their prime now and there is little to show for it.

    In a few days it’ll be June and it looks like Anthony Davis was just jerking the Niners around. Reinstatement my ass.

  108. Phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    It’s good to be underestimated. It will be a miracle if the Niners are by anyone this year but it could happen. There’s always a few fools out there who would overestimate their strength and overlook the supposed weakling. It happens all the time in sports, in life, in business and politics. Then the underdog can once in awhile put the bite on some jokers ass. It happens enough to make rooting for the underdog rewarding. Great when the mighty sink their own ships.

    I love it when the smug, the mighty, the insufferably arrogant get dumped. Think the Cowboys in 1981 for example. Contrast the Warriors last year overcoming the underestimators. Things of beauty I’m still enjoying and look back on fondly.

  109. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Chip’s offense is supposed to be high octane run at breakneck speed. At Oregon it was snapping the ball with 13 seconds elapsed between plays, in OTAs they were at a 20 second between plays pace. This offense only works if you are getting first downs and requires your QB to have a total understanding of the playbook and the game plan. Kelly is running a two minute offense throughout the game.
    It worked for a few games in Philly but opposing defenses starting figuring it out so Chip has to counter with innovation
    keeping the opposition off balance and on their heels.
    The offense only works if the QB is executing and on schedule.

    Fitting tribute to an America we once knew, such as video Military Montage to Thunderstruck. Thanks to the left and Rino’s the USA is being quickly transformed via rampant and mis-directed immigration and the onslaught of technology.

  117. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:


    Google 3D printing, robots, truck trains. Any discussion in the media. America is being transformed in the private sector by a small minority of very bright and productive people. Affecting a huge amount of average people. Where does the middle class go then.

    The stagnant economy of the left is already keeping 93 million out of the labor force. The new jobs are for the bright and educated. The future will not utilize rampant immigration of low-skilled and stupid, ignorant masses to change the electorate.

    Will Trump start a backlash, will the Democraps finally pay the price for what they have done. Or is it too late.5

  118. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Time to check your numbers. 2016 US population 323 million
    People under 21 years of age made up over a quarter of the U.S. population (27.1%), and people age 65 and over made up one- seventh (14.5%).

    Given these numbers your 93 million out of the labor force would amount to 46.5% out of work. Perhaps you were looking at Greece?
    Your numbers just like the others don’t add up.

    Why politicize Memorial Day???

    Those who serve in the military aren’t asked about their politics

  120. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit, the 93 million are those not in the labor force, both voluntary and involuntary.

    Retired whether on SS and/or SSI. Disabled and not able to work.

    Many out there cannot find full-time work using food stamps, other govt subsidy, drug dealing, whatever to exist on low paying temp jobs and part time work.

    Many have fallen through the cracks and govt does not track after they are 6 months unemployed. Their jobs replaced by technology, illegal aliens, legal aliens, and are middle and old age and not retrainable. This unemployment is directly caused by politicians, both Democrap and rino. Their only hope is Trump.

  121. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Also don’t get into foul trouble especially Klay and Bogut.
    Don’t allow OKC to have decidedly more free throw attempts.

    No Scott Foster as a ref for game 7
    Good for the W’s

  128. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    OKC had a very good team… but they ran into a buzzsaw playing one of the best NBA teams ever. Once Curry started dropping the threes it was all over. The Dubs are on a mission. The Finals may be a letdown after these last 7 games.

  129. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Harrison Barnes might regret turning down the $16 mil a year contract the W’s offered him earlier. I think it’s off the table now because there is no way he can live up to that contract as the 4th option on this team.
    Unless Ezeli agrees to a very team friendly contract I think he might be history because he’s injury prone and only occasionally flashes good play. Very inconsistent.

    Cavs series should be interesting. A lot of people wanted to trade for Kevin Love giving up Thompson, Green and Barnes.
    If that happened the last two great years might not have.
    Glad that trade never happened.

  130. winderNo Gravatar says:

    We gotta roll with that MoJo for as long as we can because it is so special. The NBA just might not see anything like this again.

  131. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    I am going to beat the dead horse one more time. Darryl Slater at NJ Com has an article on Mo.

    He was NYJ’s 1sr rder in 2011. His sack totals look great, 12 in 2015, for a 6’4″ 314 lb mighty men. He deserves a big deal now.

    NYJ offering big enough money to keep QB Fitzpatrick. Even if they can somehow fit Mo’s 15.75 million franchise tag contract this year, he will be an unrestricted FA next year.

    So let us think outside the box. NYJ clearly cannot afford Mo. He will be elsewhere in 2017.

    Buckner and Armstead are the same body type. How better to defend the run on base downs: Buckner-Armstead or Buckner-Wilkerson.

    Trade Armstead for Wilkerson. Sign Wilkerson to a long term deal with guaranteed money like Quinn of the Rams and Cameron Jordan of Saints.

    NYJ gets huge salary cap relief and Armstead locked up in a rookie contract. So what else can we get from NYJ. 2017 3rd RD pick?

  132. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Arik Armstead 3-4 DE + Anthony Davis RT for Mohammed Wilkerson + 2017 1st RD pick.

    Above trade likely since NYJ needs salary cap relief, weak at LT and RT, and did not upgrade in draft or FA at OT but spent 1st and 3rd at OLB.

    NYJ has big investment in QB Fitzpatrick, WR1 Brandon Marshall, and WR2 Erik Decker. Made of glass Clady LT is an upgrade but cannot be relied on.

    Something like this makes sense to me.

  133. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Since this is a Niner blog I better stick to football.

  136. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    As for Anthony Davis

    per Chris Biederman
    “A key date is approaching. If Davis wants any chance at playing for the 49ers, he should try to get reinstated and back on the field in time for mandatory OTAs that run June 7 through 9. That is, if the ship hasn’t already sailed.”

  137. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit, Cali has been terminally screwed by Democraps hell bent on using govt money and policies to change the electorate to become a one party state. Cali is finished and is used as an example for other states not to become.

    Incompetent Democrap politicians have not allocated money to provide fresh water. Why is there only one desalination plant in the state. It was a pilot plant and is coming online to start production at some point.

    Instead govt money was diverted to facilitate illegal aliens. Your moron flake gov moonbeam shoved through a bullet train from north to south that few wanted. Trace the campaign donations on that one.

    In the oilfield state of the art desalination plants are on the verge of production that get rid of most of the saltwater that currently has to go back in the ocean as waste. In one year these plants could be tuned to the lower salt in ocean water and solve your water situation.

    Not a peep about it. The one party state has ruined Cali. Enjoy.

    Yep it’s the political leadership- or lack thereof which ails my favorite state. Hmmm, sounds like what ails my favorite football team. One party/one person rule is not a good idea if that One is not smart. But we digress.

    Interesting article on the Niner D:

    How the 49ers can get their best 11 defenders on the field =

    Top 11 on D =

    Here’s what we think is the 49ers’ best defensive lineup – their 11 best defenders – with three receivers on the field, which they faced roughly 65 percent of the time in 2015:

    Right cornerback: Dontae Johnson
    Left cornerback: Tramaine Brock
    Slot cornerback: Jimmie Ward
    Strong side outside linebacker: Aaron Lynch
    Weak side outside linebacker: Ahmad Brooks
    Left defensive tackle: Arik Armstead/Ian Williams
    Right defensive tackle: Quinton Dial
    Inside linebacker: NaVorro Bowman
    Hybrid LB/safety: Jaquiski Tartt
    Strong safety: Antoine Bethea
    Free safety: Eric Reid

    It’s futile to argue with two guys that don’t live In California seemingly knowing what’s going on here even though they live hundreds or thousands of miles away.

    We got him on the ropes Tom- and I’m not even there to see it, lol. Hey I’m not in Europe either but it is well known by stats, facts that Sweden is now the “rape capital of the world” due to Muslim scum being welcomed by the idiot gumnint. Luckily out of control illegal immigration is not a problem in Cali.

    Yeah right

    Love it. Keep it up. Lots of white blue collar democrats will deliver Wisconsin, Iowa, Ohio, Virginia, Florida, Colorado.

    Warriors big win last night. Cavs looked confused on O and on D so this could be an easier series than OKC. So please, it Can Be Done =

    Make Niners Great Again.

    Thank you

    Jed York is turning into the Chris Cohan of the millennium.

    Niners need an owner like Lacob, a GM like Myers, an elite coach like Kerr and an MVP like Curry.

    They have not one of these ingredients. Jed is living up to the York legacy of being a tightwad. The GM is making bad choices so you have to pay for top talent.

    A lot has to change for this team to rise back to the Harbaugh era.

    Yup, miles apart the organizational structure of the Warriors personnel which is top notch and the elementary Niners which ain’t so good. Team desperately needs stability and quality people at the top including HC. All eyes on Kelly to make it work so we are not condemned to more years of poor results on field. Niners are starting over (again) so expectations are low for this year tho.

  146. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The experts in Vega$ have the Niners and Browns as underdogs in the first 16 games of the season. So for the optimists who think the Niners will win 8 games or more you’re going to clean up and make fools of the bookies.


    IMO this is pretty dire and an indication the team hasn’t hit rock bottom. A better year for QBs is the 2018 draft. Likely Josh Rosen, Jake Browning and Keller Chryst will be in that draft class. Someone like Paxton Lynch and Wetzel always emerges too.

    RIP Muhammed Ali the greatest boxer of all time.
    He floated like a butterfly and stung like a bee.
    If you haven’t seen this on 60 Minutes it’s well worth watching.
