Idle Worse Lip

The anti-Alex sentiments that have kept the blogs lively through many an offseason have been noticeably muted this year. There’s still a few die hards out there getting spit spew on their chins, but by and large, it’s a quiet crowd in the summer of 2012.

Also missing from the fist pounders’ banquet are the shennanigans of a questionable head coach and his staff. Jim Harbaugh and his assistant coaches are all wearing halos this offseason. Aside from a tortured misremberment of the pursuit of Peyton Manning, Harbaugh is still the golden child.

This coming season should scare us for the very reason it doesn’t. 2011 was a miracle year. Expecting back to back miracles would peeve even Jesus, let alone the football gods. Lest we forget. The ball ain’t round. Football can hand us a pile bullshit faster than a Spitblood login.

Tarell Brown may have jinxed his season with his comments about wanting to lead the league in interceptions this year. Leading the league is a by product of good play, not a goal. It’s one thing to talk about career goals, as Vernon Davis did recently, but if Brown starts going for ints at the expense of his coverage, we’ll be seeing the back of his jersey way too often in 2012.

Anyone else think Drew Brees has worn out his welcome as a nice guy and entered the Gag Me Zone?

It was a fine little story in 2009, winning the Super Bowl, uplifting the spirits of New Orleansians, the whole city hero bit. The Saints crapped out in 2010, but they could blame injuries if they were inclined to whimper. In 2011, Brees trotted through the Twitter, PFT, ESPN news ticker universe like a daily vitamin pill — a highly vocal member of the NFLPA leadership group haggling with the NFL during the CBA crisis, while also gathering his team for lockout workouts that paraded his leadership and comaraderie skills. What a guy!

It’s 2012 now, the Saints’ reputation is in ruins, their head coach is banned for a year, and where is Mr. Wonderful in this mess? Blowing off the Saints OTAs while squabbling over a $20 million dollar contract, give or take a million or two, and offering up one lame slice of baloney after another regarding the bounty program operating under his nose in New Orleans for the past three years. His teammates might need a little of that flaunted leadership this year, with all the disarray, but Brees is too busy being a me-first empire now.

Four more weeks till Training Camp, guys. Good time to slip into a coma or go for a submarine cruise or become a baseball fan or watch paint dry or keep up with the Detroit Lions arrest records.

    I would like to rename Drew Brees Sgt Schultz. He claims Bountygate is just a smear campaign against the Aints and he’s tired of it.
    He says he never saw any evidence of it yet GM and coaches have been suspended and the video and audio don’t lie. Sorry but Drew is just full of himself and in denial.

    Baseball is good for now. The Giants are in 1st place and they just threw 4 straight shutouts!

    I just returned from the store armed with Phil Steele’s and PFW’s football/fantasy guides for 2012. I’m loaded for bear and it’s not even huntin’ season. But it’s QB season, and I already bought my #11 tag. PFW projects 267/442 for 3,059 yds and 18 TDs and 11 INTs. Shit. He should be shot twice for those numbers.

    just sold a bonsai tree to


    hollywood blvd 12th floor
    L.A ca. !

    that makes us the official bonsai tree of hollywood !

    that’s after seding one to the NFL players kids camp in marco island fl. the other day !

    which of course makes me the official bonsai tree of the NFL !

    oohh cool !

    my favorite musician is teaming up with blog favorite joe bonamassa here !

    LT says HOF more important than a championship? Hmmmm! OK, we now know he was thinking about himself more than his team. Could be a big reason SD never got over the hump? I’m fairly confident Gore would rather have a championship.

  8. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    An indicator that things have been slow: both Berger & Del Mar took the time to get new avatars.

    Rob you are the Official Mr Miyagi of the 49ers Outsider.
    ‘Wax On Wax Off Rob-san’
    (R.I.P. Pat Morita)
    And yes, the new Bonamassa with Jon Lord KIX A$$!
    Not a bad track on the entire CD.
    Haven’t stopped playing it for weeks.

  10. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    And in keeping with Mr Miyagi, (who’s B’Day was this week), I give you this Bullit, Chuck and 12th.
    When debating the dynamics of Alex and Harbaugh, I’m reminded of another of the long list of Mr Miyagi quotes…..applied to the QB of course.
    Walk on road, hm? Walk left side, safe. Walk right side, safe. Walk middle, sooner or later….
    get squish just like grape.
    Here, karate, same thing. Either you karate do “yes” or karate do “no.” You karate do “guess so….squish like grape.
    I think Harbaugh will be Mr Miyagi to Alex-san.
    Teacher makes student.

    Aldon Smith stabbed at a house party this morning. No other details yet. Second incident this offseason. No good. Injury not supposed to be serious. Two others at the party were shot.

  12. BullitNo Gravatar says:

    I sure hope that report is not true as I can’t find it.
    If it did happen then he’s a knucklehead unless it was at his
    mother’s house and it was a burglar.
    When are these guys going to learn not hang out with losers looking to badass at their expense.
    Just plain dumbass stupidity to place yourself in that situation when you’ve got so much to lose.

  13. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    So much for a submarine cruise huh Skeebs?
    Leave it to Aldon to bring the harsh glare of media scrutiny upon us.

  14. robNo Gravatar says:

    hey at least aldon wasn’t one of the ones who got shot !

    all joking aside , time for willis and j. smith to have a talk with our boi !

  15. BullitNo Gravatar says:

    Sorry that I must live a very timid and tame life. I generally don’t attends parties where the guests are packing heat.
    Aldon is a dumbass and has two strikes against him now.
    Aldon has to stop putting himsrlf in bad situations or he’s going to have a short career irregardless of untapped ability.

  16. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    This raises a serious Red Flag about Aldon and the party scene.
    Hope this doesn’t involve League sanctions in the upcoming weeks. Gonna need him for GB and beyond.

  17. robNo Gravatar says:


    no parties where the guests are packing heat ?

    none ???

    you’re such a wuss !



  18. BullitNo Gravatar says:

    I just get so bent where these guys have talent to make what would take the average Joe a lifetime to earn in 4 years playing a game. Then they do stupid things and piss it away.

  19. robNo Gravatar says:

    NJ ! OMG !

    the bonamassa / lord thing i was talking about is still being recorded ! i don’t know about the one you’re talking about !

    OMG what’s it called and where can i get it !!!

  20. BullitNo Gravatar says:


    I do not have any bullet or stab wounds to show for it and hope to avoid them until I die.
    Go back to first grade and remember “sticks and stones” when somebody wants to pick a fight.

    Some people think their life is like this movie

  22. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    My mistake Rob, Bonamassa is helping on Lords’ CD.
    I thought I’d read that he was with Joe when they were recording Joes’ new CD.
    It’s titled Driving Towards the Daylight.
    Either way, with or without Lord, the CD smokes!

  23. BullitNo Gravatar says: had some fun with Greg Williams audio. Found this on Niner Nation and very clever.

  24. robNo Gravatar says:


    thx , i’ll have to check that one out !

  25. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Maiocco is reporting that Aldon hosted the party and was attempting to break up a fight.
    Sure hope for his sake he’s learned a lesson about people on the Guest list for the future.
    Get a Security Group in place next time you have a crowd that large, you can afford it.

  26. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Maiocco is also reporting no comment from Aldons’ Agent and Mom.
    Looks like the Team has already issued the gag order.
    Step one in damage control, breaking up the fight as opposed to being involved in it.
    Matt also suggests that by way of Mindi Bach, nothing further came of the Miami DUI? Not sure why? I read that he had BAC pushing upwards of .180
    Please Aldon, take this as a warning, count your blessings that you’re OK and get away from this crowd you’re hanging out with.

  27. BullitNo Gravatar says:

    Some punks think they’re badass because they have a gun. If this was Aldon’s party I would find out
    who brought these guys to the party and cut all ties.
    To grow up Aldon Smith needs to leran from this incident big time or end up one day like Javon Walker on a Las Vegas sidewalk humiliated. I have zero sympathy for Javon Walker because he put himself into those situations.
    A classic from over 20 years ago

    Being 1/2 redneck, guns at parties do not phase me when I’m partying with other rednecks. If I’m not partying with rednecks, guns at parties would not work so well. If I was at a non-redneck party and found out somebody had a gun I’d most likely just leave.

  29. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    BTW- Rednecks don’t think their badass, they just like their guns. I wouldn’t want to be a passing rabbit at a redneck party.

  30. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Aldon will learn or have a short career.

  31. BullitNo Gravatar says:


    People develop different personas when they drink in excess (for some that is an unknown concept and doesn’t exist). You have the happy drunk, the drunk who suddenly develops unfound courage
    and the violent drunk as examples.
    The last 2 don’t mix well with guns.
    No matter what color your neck is my intention when going to a party is not to be shot or stabbed
    by someone being stupid because they drank too much.

  32. BullitNo Gravatar says:

    Aldon Smith was stabbed severald
    times in the abdomen and shoulder by a short blade such as a pocket knife according to reports.

  33. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit- At a redneck party, at some point everybody gets out their knives and starts doing show and tell. Not everybody has guns, but almost everybody has knives. Most have multiple knives. Kind of like Crocadile Dundee. Maybe the reason there aren’t problems at redneck parties is because almost every person is armed? Even drunk, do you want to be the one that gets stupid and gets hurt? I always feel safe at a party with rednecks and I’m often one of the only people not armed.
    Disclaimer- A lot of redneck parties are not in neighborhoods. If they are they are usually at somebody’s acreage(or at least on a dirt road) and involve BBQ, alcohol and daylight. I was at one just two weeks ago. Repo Ed, fellow redneck, got so drunk I was worried about him getting home safely, even though he lived next door to the party! But next door was over 100 yards away and up a hill. Half the people in my neighborhood are rednecks, or in my case, partial redneck. We all have guns, every one of us. Guns are not the problem, people are.

  34. BullitNo Gravatar says:


    I can’t imagine attending a party with somebody like Spitty/V/NF and them carrying a gun with their extreme views.
    In the past Spitty has challenged me to a fistfight asking me to meet him in Cordelia to duke it out.
    (how stupid was that challenge??)
    I have a problem with guns in the hands of irrational people period.

  35. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    If you notice in my disclaimer, I said the redneck parties are more in the daylight. People even bring their children. Night redneck parties are usually broken up by midnight. They all want to go ride their Harleys in the morning.
    I remember Spitty challenging you. I thought that was Dirt Diver? Did you also go by the name Dirt Diver? Anyway, I remember you saying you were there waiting, and then he shut up.

  36. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I agree with your comment about guns and irrational people. Like you said earlier, add alcohol and many become irrational. Guns and parties don’t mix, no question. I was just trying to let you know a little about rednecks.
    We are so misunderstood. Especially when we are telling everybody redneck jokes. Who else can everybody make fun of. You can’t make fun of blacks, gays ,women, Muslims or any other minority that finds out how to make money off of being mad. Us rednecks, we joke ourselves and tell the lawyers to go away. One day when the lawyers go away we can all get along. Until then, follow the money.

    Redneck? You might be a redneck if…Your mother has “ammo” on her Christmas list.

  38. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    You might be a redneck if…You’ve ever filled your deer tag on the golf course.

  39. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    You might be a redneck if…Directions to your house include, “Turn off the paved road.” That’s how you get to Berger’s house. 😀

  40. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I just had a herd of wild horses come through. I stood on the lawn and they just kept coming. I don’t care if they eat my lawn, the problem is they pee. Their pee creates huge dead spots. Anyway, when the stallion came running from behind I got my ass inside. I’m not sure he was being friendly. My wife got a horn and scared them away. Lawn saved for now!

  41. BullitNo Gravatar says:

    I was Dirtdiver but SF Gate forced me to choose one name so I stuck with Bullit and have been since then.
    Really stupid to fight over football. They’ll ask Spitty where he got his blackeye and he’ll say to his coworkers “I got it over a fight about Alex Smith”
    Imagine driving 100 miles to get your ass kicked over Alex Smith?

  42. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit- BTW, above you mention V, Spitty and NF with guns. NoFear is not somebody who is going to get irrational and use a gun, even with alcohol. Spitty maybe. V, no. Thing is with Spitty and V I could see some drunk getting irrational and using one on them. NF can carry himself without causing that.
    BTW #2, where did NoFear go? I think we got into his kitchen and he left. Our central scrutinizer has gone away. He’ll be back when the 49ers lose a game.

  43. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit- I was hoping he’d show. I’m sure you would have persevered!

  44. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Dirt Diver was great. DD would go all NF and Bullit was the voice of reason. I always thought they both might be one. Now Bullit has to do both chores! You must be stressed with the double duty for Bullit! LOL

  45. BullitNo Gravatar says:


    I’m a lover not a fighter.
    I certainly wouldn’t drive out to Cordelia to duke it out with a starnger. That’s how people disappear. Alex Smith is not worth losing some teeth or the money and time in jail. I’m rational enough to know our actions individually don’t affect the 49ers.
    You are probably right about NF and he’ll be back when he has the
    material. My experience is he’s a bully and has the same tactics as V but he’s less long winded. On SF Gate he wouldn’t dare cross V so I have always thought there was a connection, especially when V was kissing his ass.
    I believe respect gets respect.
    If I am ever wrong I will admit to it.

  46. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I talk to V now and then. He is a nice guy on the phone. He is totally different on the blogs. He’s a family guy, loves blues and plays guitar. Everybody here would probably like him in person. On the blog, no.

  47. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Speaking of being a lover, remember, I am alias the Loveberger! Yes, the one and only LB!
