Long Term Forecast: Drought

The 49ers are catching a media break now with the Giants rallying back into the NL West race and the Warriors grabbing everyone’s attention as they try to bring home their first NBA Title since 1975. That’s a 40 year title drought for those of you who have misplaced your calculator.

The Niners are halfway along this drought alley, standing currently at 21 years without a trophy. This time next year, it will be 22. Twelve different franchises have won one or more titles since the 49ers last got theirs.

It’s going to be a long, hard year for 49er fans. Outsider types know what’s coming, but most fans, especially young ones, are inseason fans and during the offseason are only marginally aware of the roster, the coaches, and the sort of day to day minutiae that provide the nuts and bolts of our blogging man world. These fans are going to tune in at the start of the season expecting to see the powerful 49ers setting out on another SB run. What they’re going to get is a big ass WTF experience from hell.

Right now, the chances of winning a bet that the team goes 2-14 in 2015 are not appreciably more risky than winning a bet that they simply make the playoffs. In fact, it’s probably even a less risky bet.

The 49ers play 14 games against the three toughest divisions in the NFL this year. Their own division, plus the AFC North and the NFC North. It wouldn’t be a shock if they whiffed the field. Nine of their games will be against 2014 playoff teams.

Meanwhile, the repercussions from the disastrous Jed York/Trent Baalke house cleaning after the 2014 season continued unabated last week as yet another player, RT Anthony Davis, threw in the towel on the new regime and retired from football rather than beat up his body for a losing operation.

Has any team ever so visibly demonstrated its disgust with management as this 49er team? Then again, has any team’s management ever made such a colossal mess as York and Baalke have engineered. With one gigantic, ego-driven blunder, they’ve managed to turn a championship caliber team into a bottom feeder.

This will be the year 49er fans get a painful reminder of what happens to a team when it doesn’t have a good coaching staff and its HC is a bum. You’d think that the eight years of horsecrap which preceded Jim Harbaugh would still be a fresh nightmare to all but the Alzheimered folks, but apparently not, judging by some of the blogging types who should know better, but certainly haven’t shown it.

The only significant question facing this franchise now is how long it will take Jed York to realize what a douche he is and at last, at least, remove himself from all football related questions and involvement. Until then, we’ll continue to add to the Drought Watch year after year after year.

    I’ve never met a bunch of fans hoping for so much doom and gloom in my life. Did you all piss on the graves of the Morabito bros when things went south in the 70s? Do any of you even go to games?

    If they end up sucking, well its gonna suck. But to sit here and whine endlessly about it is pathetic. Like trying to figure out who thought they’d suck first. Yay! I’m with the ‘we suck’ crowd!

    Or do you think this matters? Like C and his letters to the green?

  2. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Nobody here is hoping for doom, Chuck. Doom is already here, courtesy of York. Endlessly whining about coverage and opinions about the mess, like you do, is what’s really pathetic.

  3. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    With much high-priced talent no longer on the team, meeting the salary cap is probably not a major factor whether Ahmad Brooks or VD remain on the team. From mini camp reports it looks like Lemonier is the real deal and we have 5 quality OLB.

    This dilemma rests entirely on TB and whether it was his reaction to Jed meddling or bad judgement on position choice for pick 3 is now moot. Keep all 5 rotating and Brooks only base downs is OK.

    Do not keep a larger group at WR since the promise of UDFA’s is unrealistic. Are any better than Jerome Simpson. The problem with WR needs to have QB and OC prove itself this season.

    Would have an additional QB coach dedicated to QB2 and QB3.

  4. winderNo Gravatar says:

    skeebs, most of the media is full of crap anyway. They’re not writing about the Niners because they don’t know anything. But, don’t worry guys if we do end up sucking I’ll be the first to say you guys were right all along. I still think we’ll be a better team than last year and if that’s the case(not gace)I just hope all here can enjoy the season.

  5. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Are there Las Vegas betting on full season won-lost records. I want to come up with a betting strategy now to maximize gains on varying bets between 2 and 6 wins.

    The schedule is brutal and the D not there this year. I want to make easy money off the homers.

  6. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebers – Jed York isn’t going to have a “come to Jesus” moment when he realizes he’s a meddling owner who’s destroyed his team and probably will never again have it as good as he did under Harbaugh. There will be no moment where Jed decides he needs to step aside for two reasons: One is that Jed thinks he’s Eddie and Jed looks to Eddie’s business model for affirmation. Problem with that is that Eddie both had the goods, and Eddie had Walsh. The second reason is that Jed can’t assess what’s really going on. He doesn’t have insights regarding who to hire, when to step aside or out of the spotlight, when to leak or not leak information, when to use or not use twitter and who’s actually doing a good job. Jed can’t assess talent or situations, and he has terrible judgement.

    Take the recent report that Harbaugh told Jed, “Men only meeting” (which still makes me smile). If Jed had a clue, he’d have known Harbaugh was the glue that kept it all together. He’d have swallowed his pride and tried to make good with Harbaugh. You all might be skeptical of this, but I would have. If I was in Jed’s shoes, I would have swallowed my pride. I’m a hot head, but at the very least I’m grounded and know when I’m right or wrong… and I can assess situations. Instead of knowing when Jed was in over his head, and knowing that Harbaugh was in the leveraged position because, like John Madden said, “It’s easier to find a suit” — implying that good coaches like Harbaugh are almost impossible to find — Jed let his pride get in way and the entire organization will suffer for years because of it.

    It’s like the old saying, “The pride before the fall…” Many have spun that in any job if you tell your boss to F off, you get fired. But not when the employee knows a ton more than the boss…. especially not when the total tonnage of knowledge owned by the employee is light years ahead of the knowledge known and acquired by the boss – and the employee is almost irreplaceable if you consider what might happen to the team after the employee is fired. In short, Jed York is and was a kid, and Harbaugh called him on it for Jed’s immature handling of the Browns’ story.

    The Pride Before the Fall…. Jed York let his pride get in the way when Harbaugh needled him with, “Men Only,” and the once mighty under Harbaugh have certainly fallen.

    Tom – Yeah…. Cory Lemonier is the real deal so much that Aaron Lynch immediately passed him up on the depth chart last year. Don’t think for a second the Bay Area media isn’t in the business of selling us all a bill of goods when it comes to player development. The truth of the matter is that the media is in bed with NFL teams, trying to sell tickets. Cory Lemonier is another bust. Can’t get to the qb …. and can’t set the edge.

  7. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Jim Harbaugh had trade value. That has been established.

    What would another team give us for Trent Baalke? Not much.
    Before being GM Trent was invisible and if he is not successful as the GM he will return to being invisible.

  8. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Winder, it won’t be hard to enjoy the games this year. There’ll be no anxiety or frustration about SB chances or home field advantage or any particular importance at all. If that’s all it takes to amuse you, fine. Have a ball. For the high caliber tension and excitement of playoff atmosphere football, however, we’ll have to find other teams to watch. The Niners won’t be in that mix any more and won’t for the foreseeable future. That all went out the window when Harbaugh was fired.

  9. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Winder – I for one would love to see the 49ers improve on Harbaugh’s record, maybe make the playoffs in 2015. Jed York would be out front of it all, saying “I told you so.” I wouldn’t change my opinion of York’s ability to win a Super Bowl, or my ex patriot status, but he’d have a brief moment of glory after the Harbaugh debacle that would make good theater outside the lines.

    I still think, regardless of the 49ers’ record in 2015, the 49ers will plummet back to the bottom of the league. I’d also bet anyone who reads this $100 plus that the 49ers won’t go 8-8. But again, I’d love to see a successful 49ers team in 2015 … for the theater. The eventual cellar is inevitable.

  10. winderNo Gravatar says:

    skeebs – I gotta say, being a better team would amuse me. And of course I would love for our Niners to play in the big game. So would 30 other teams. What I don’t honestly see is how you can’t see that the league caught up with Harbaugh’s game plan and that Gore isn’t what he used to be. It does happen to the best of them sometimes.

  11. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    That’s easy, Winder. The league didn’t catch up with Harbaugh’s game plan. Unless you think it takes these NFL teams four years to figure something out. If you think last year was about game plans, then you weren’t paying very close attention.

  12. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    It’s not about game plans, or great coaches wouldn’t keep on winning year after year. It’s about opponent match ups. When your team is riddled with injuries, those match ups don’t work out.

  13. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Last year’s SB was a great example. When Seattle injuries got them down to their worst CB in the 4th quarter, Brady just relentlessly burned the poor guy to death.

  14. winderNo Gravatar says:

    skeebs – I guess this is where we really differ. I am well aware of the injuries and the problems they pose. What I saw was some of the worse coaching I have ever seen.

  15. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    How so? What terrible coaching did you see?

  16. winderNo Gravatar says:

    lots of confusion with play calls, Plays that even I knew were coming. Doing plays that didn’t work and continually trying the same play over and over again. As to what the plays were called I haven’t got a clue I just see what I see.

  17. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Wow. You should have been hired by some team, Winder. After three trips to the Title game and an SB, our opponents finally figured out that Harbaugh’s game plan was to have confusion with play calls, run plays that didn’t work, and try the same play over and over. How did we ever have a 7-4 record and tied with Seattle last year before the fateful “tweet” game put us out of contention?

  18. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    BTW, Winder. It’s not rocket science to figure out if a team is going to run or pass on any given play. Usually, when plays don’t work that used to work, you might want to look at the actual players involved in making the play work or not work.

  19. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    Green is shooting 27% and Barnes is shooting 33%. Don’t blame Curry; the Cavs are keeping a man on him at all times, never leaving him alone to help elsewhere. Green and Barnes have to turn it around. Lee has to have another game like Game 3. Bogut has to show something, some hustle, anything to show that he actually wants to and deserves to be here.

    Warriors in 6. Or 7. I hope. Face it, the Cavs are good.

  20. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    If the Warriors had a good big man instead of Bogut, this series would be well on its way to being over.

    Bogut’s job on O is to set screens on the outside. That’s it. He hangs around outside waiting for a shot, then either gets back on D or continues to hang around outside to set more screens. That’s about as little an offensive responsibility as you will ever see. I’d like to see him, rather than just standing and watching shots, either a) start getting back on D; or b) crash the boards, even from outside. I’ve seen numerous Cav boards that he could have gotten or at least challenged for, rebounds that were grabbed outside, far from the rim. He stood there watching.

    He did a very good job on D earlier in the playoffs. Not against the Cavs, their front line is dominating him.

    It shouldn’t be a surprise that the Warriors’ big runs, game after game after game, are with the small lineup – Bogut on the bench.

    He should at least crash the boards on O, hustle a little, challenge for loose balls. Even if it doesn’t really work, it would be a big morale boost.

  21. winderNo Gravatar says:

    “Wow. You should have been hired by some team, Winder.” Good one skeebs you really got me there.

  22. ReddingRexNo Gravatar says:

    Split, do you know what 12 millions have in common? LOL!!! I better not say anything till after the game tonight…

    Unca_chuck, “I’ve never met a bunch of fans hoping for so much doom and gloom in my life.”
    Chuck, your biggest problem and that’s why you argue with everyone is you think everyone should just accept, defend and cheer on anything that’s given to us in life. You disregard and just cant comprehend that there are many people out in the world that are trying to fool the general public out of their cash for as long as they can while tugging at their hearts with a beloved symbol and glory days of the past.

    Living in La La Land as a good little puppet you see people with brains that will not tolerate incompetence as crazy people who just complain. We’re not complainers we just tell the truth, call out bad moves and point the finger quickly at the person who is incompetent without taking years to finally figure things out. For example if the York’s hired good people to run the team do you honestly think any one of us would complain? No they just haven’t done if for 15 years! See we do our duty as Citizen’s of this great country by calling out the bad and applauding the good, you applaud no matter what and that’s a great concern to our country moving forward.

    For example if I was a registered Democrat and Obama was my guy and he traveled down the road as the worst President ever even behind Jimmy Carter I’d be the first one to call that fool out. You on the other hand would back and defend him no matter what because he has a D by his name. In this time of tyranny and oppression that we’re headed in thanks to the party you support full heartedly the last thing we need are more sheep like yourself. If sheep like you who stay silent are allowed to grow into even a bigger herd America, as we know it is doomed. Knowledge is power and if you allow someone to take you for a ride because they’re good at camouflaging the obvious then you become the problem not the answer.

    See this is the problem with your site you and your followers don’t want to hear the truth you just want to hear what you want to hear. See the truth is so important to me I stand by my beliefs and it holds people accountable. When you call out bad moves you always end up being correct and fans like you end up looking like donkey rear ends at the end of every year. People like you who prefer not to hear the truth or not second-guess a failed track record are the real problem. With your blind sheep ways you will never be a part of the solution you’ll always be the problem of the current condition. John, Jed and Denise love you but those of us who will make a stand and debate every issue if necessary thinks you do our great country and us a great disservice.

  23. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    It looks like Kerr saw I what I saw. No Bogut sighting yet, and it’s the end of the first quarter. Warriors by 7 end of 1st.

  24. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    Halfway through the second, still no Bogut. Can you say benched? Warriors by 12.

    That’s what you get when you play like you don’t want to be there.

  25. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Good one V.

    Ws doubling James and he dishes to guys like Delli who are missing. Ws up 12.

    I did call for a win here tonight

  26. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    Woohoo, he’s in.

  27. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    James gets fouled by Bogut which is Bs best play of the series. James, what an actor. Ws doing great shutting him down so far

  28. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    He’s just hacking and grabbing jerseys left and right as usual. He is annoying to the opponents with that “style”. He could be an asset to this team, which doesn’t need a dominant center. He just didn’t look like he was trying like championship players do in championship series.

    Warriors by 12 at half.

  29. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    That smack on the head of LBJ compliments of Bogut has got the King missing even more than earlier this game. Cavs are not able to score when Lebron dishes. Della has really cooled off and Ws defending him = no easy shots.

    Ws great D, great game plan. Let’s get this one

  30. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Yep RT glad Lee started (?) instead of Bogut. He’s been pretty useless up to now

  31. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    Lee came off the bench. The Warriors started small and stayed small. Lee and Livingston came in for more minutes than Bogut (2 min 46 seconds) did.

  32. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Lee did not start, They started Iggy and Lee wqas the first sub in.

    I wonder why they didn’t take Lebron out to test for a concussion
    after the bleeding. That should be the protocol.

  33. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    If the W’s keep taking the ball inside and getting fouled the Cavs will lose a couple of players and they don’t have a bench

  34. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Yep Iggy. He’s da man today

  35. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    James is getting tired so hopefully the Ws keep the pressure on him and take it to the hoop

  36. ReddingRexNo Gravatar says:

    Got to hand it to Golden State they’re playing tough. Let’s see down the stretch.

  37. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    This is messed up, lol. My Yahoo play by play is describing plays before they show up on ABC.

  38. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    You think that’s bad? It’s already Friday over here…that’s how I knew the Dubs would win.

  39. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    LOL Phil

  40. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Warriors figured it out. They play up tempo and they exhaust the Cavs and run them off the floor. Lebron had nothing left at the end.

    Way to go Warriors! 2 more wins and you’re the Champs!

  41. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Awesome game tonight by the Dubs. A few things come to mind. Next year, regardless if the Warriors win it all or not, they need to trade Bogut for a can of peaches and find another big man. And where was Ezeli? That big Russian was cleaning up inside. But I guess Kerr just thought he wasn’t cutting into the lead, so let it ride.

    The Cavs are doing to the Warriors what the Warriors should be doing to the Cavs… or at least what I’ve been calling for all along. Trap or double Lebron. The Cavs are trapping and doubling Curry like crazy, and the Warriors, in my opinion, need to let someone else bring the ball up the floor because Curry is tired and frustrated – with some glimmers of hope. So trap Lebron, and let someone else bring the ball up the floor with the handles to break double teams.

    The reason the Warriors won tonight was two words: Andre Igoudala. In my opinion, he’s the series MVP for the Warriors. It sure ain’t Curry. And it was good to see Barnes, Green and Livingston pitch in.

    If the Warriors are gonna win this, it all comes down to trapping the guards. Whomever traps the opposition’s guards better, wins. I think tonight the Warriors won because Lebron needed a blow. He’s been carrying his team all playoffs long. We’ll see where Lebron’s legs are back home in Oracle.

    Right now, the only player showing the heart of a champion is Andre Igoudala! And I’d just cut Bogut. 2 out of 3 at Oracle. Let’s go Dubs!!!

  42. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Huh. Kerr must be reading my stuff. I called the Bogut benching. I thought Barnes should have sat but he came back with a solid game. Bogut is either hurt or just slower than he usually is. 3 minutes and 3 fouls was pretty sad, but he did get a couple good shots on Bron Bron. I’ll give him that.

    spitty/v, you can wax poetic for 1,000,000 words about how bad the team is, but truth be told, the offense was no better than 20th only once under Harbaugh. We kicked a shitload of FGs when we should have been scoring TDs.

    We consistently are shit in 3rd down conversion, and 3-and outs. These are facts. Everyone in the league knew the offense. Seattle, The Rams, and a few other team said they knew what was coming. You pooh pooh that as not being very difficult to figure out.

    Thing is is no one ever said that about a Bill Walsh team. innovating is better than settling. And yet again, you give Harbaugh ab out with injuries, but the defense had much more adversity to deal with. Fungi kept the defense on point. Harbaugh failed miserably last year and couldn’t adjust accordingly.

    You’ve been whining about how bad we are, and me being optimistic is a drag?


    What a joke.

  43. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Article by Cohn jr (strike one) on Bleacher Report (strike two) about ‘state of Niners after OTAs’. Nothing new (strike three) but he thinks our issues are:

    1) Wards foot / CB depth, lack of experience

    2) Kaps development

    3) Eric Reid = will he hold up?

    4) Bowman = can he return yo form?

    5) OL? Yep it’s a question alright


  44. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    From comments of above article:

    (from cfc and MidWestDynasty)

    #6: Who the hell is our #3 receiver? I’d add the competition at WR behind Smith/Boldin and TE behind Davis as two other issues that need to be resolved.

    #7: Who is our defensive line? Seems like there was almost a different front each day, I know I’m exaggerating but still did we come away from OTA’s with any semblance of who our front 7 might be?

    #8: Who is our #1 RB, do we have a #1 RB? Will it be a RB by committee or will one player get the share of carries?

  45. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Also with the 2 best of run blockers gone will the running game work, strong dose of who needed imo.

  46. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    The argument about the folly- or not- of York sabotaging the HC and replacing him with Tomsula is going on strong at several other sites like Niners Nation and BASG. This in response to the leak about Harbaugh supposedly calling out York in a players meeting. The NN discussion is the most coherent and interesting. Not that it changed my mind.

    My take on the woes on O we endured last year is that we had a hold out (Boone) and injuries (A Davis, Vernon, Kilgore, Iupati) and we had J Martin as a backup who was not adequate.

    Harbaugh surely knew before OTSs and pre-season that York was determined to dump him. If Spit and I knew it, Jimi certainly did. I blame York 80% for the non-injury problems on the O last year as THEY KNEW they were getting fired as early as February 2014. At that point my take is that the HC said ‘screw it, we’ll go with what we originally had in mind and forget anything else’. I see Harbaughs position hardening, essentilly daring York to fire him. The “Men only” comment would seem to indicate that. Hard to expect too much with that kind of hostile work environment…then the injuries.

    But the supposed tragically flawed nature of Jimis O was good enough for 49 wins in 4 years. I’ll be much more impressed with the idea that the O sucked so bad when I see some achievements by the new regime. And NOT until then.

  47. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Yep Bakkentom ‘who is going to block for our RBs (and QB on the option plays)’ is another of the many questions for our guys (coaches)

  48. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Phil, it doesn’t even matter what the offense does this year. You can’t compare what Harbaugh had to play with and what we’ll end up with when the season begins. Don’t we have to endure the same injuries and lousy backups and Kaepernick with the same problems to compare?

    Harbaugh and his assistants evaluated the players they had and made the decisions on which plays would give us the best chance to win against each opponent. And it’s pretty hard to question their abilities and success with such, considering they set records for winning in their previous three years running doing just that.

    It’s just the old armchair QBing and fans always being able to miraculously know what the right thing to do is. Meanwhile the actual coaches with a job to do are evaluating every player on every play and every practice drill. They aren’t limited to only the parts of the plays the cameras show in a game.

    Some fans think two running plays in a row is the same as running the same plays. That’s who’s arguing Harbaugh doesn’t know what he’s doing.

    Just ask yourself this: In the opinion of actual pro players and coaches, are the Cards, Rams, Seahawks happier playing Tomsula’s crew or Harbaugh’s? Apparently some think they’d be happier with Harbaugh since they now have his game all figured out. And that football wizard, Jed York, knew it! Before last year, right after that 12-4 season and the conference championship game!

    The extent to which folks will twist facts to fit their opinion is astounding.

  49. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    NF, then we saw 8 and 9 in the box a lot and we would run into it still thinking that could generate more yards than a spread formation to force the D to open up wider gaps. So Kaep could not read a D well enuf to audible out of a run.

    The O plays are not changing much this year. Kaep is on the hot seat and will have to prove he is capable of being a complete QB.

  50. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Egos released OG Evan Mathis, Pro Bowl player who’ll be 34 this Nov.
    If Niner FO is thinking they are contenders they might look into signing him. He’s looking for $6 mil a year. He’ll help somebody’s Oline.

  51. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Says the biggest fact-twister here.

    You think its a game of forcing your plays down the other team/s throat? A la Singletary. Which Harbaugh was disciple of. Welcome to the 1960s.

    Successful offenses take advantage of mismatches. They don’t run their same-old plays to the offense. I’ve seen way too many games where we do something that works and then never try it again. Whether it be the no-huddle in AZ that worked that we then never used again, and then lost, or the fact we couldn’t score against the weakest defenses in the NFL.

    I’ve never met an offense that refused to dictate the action. They ran their plays regardless of who the opponent was. No adjusting, no changing things up. To think the team is dying on the vine when the offense was so stagnant is ludicrous. Harbaugh will be fine in college. He needs to step his offensive game plan up for the NFL.

  52. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Statistically the defense was much better than the offense during Harbaugh’s tenure. Hence the reason I point out that Harbaugh ran a conservative offense that was low-risk low-reward. He rode his defense to victories.

    This flies in the face of the Bill Walsh philosophy of getting a team down and demoralizing them.

    How am any ges
    Come down to the last
    Possession! How any blowouts did Harbaugh coach? Very few. I mean shit, the Rams dropped 52 on the Raiders and we get 13?

  53. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    How many games? I hate typing on my phone.

  54. ReddingRexNo Gravatar says:

    Unca_chuck says:

    “You’ve been whining about how bad we are, and me being optimistic is a drag?”

    Chuck, way to avoid a response. This has nothing to do what we’re talking about. Let me put it this way so it might register for once and you can avoid that trip to see the Wizard.

    If we had a owner who every year had true conviction and a passion for winning and by his every move you knew he was doing everything for the teams success to win the Super Bowl, would we complain?

    If the York’s Hired Pete Carroll and he came in and cleaned house, drafted good great players and brought in key free agents do you think we would complain?

    If we had Rodgers or a Russell Wilson type QB who belongs here as well as the WCO that should’ve never been disposed of especially since we made it famous, would we complain?

    Facts are if you remember correctly when the Seahawks hired Carroll what did I tell you? That was a winning move and what the first thing he did when he got there? He cleaned house first then found his Quarterback. Did that happen here? What did you say about the Carroll hiring? “V, that guys a loser, he lost every time he was associated with an NFL team. Like Walsh he’s a criminal and should be in jail” Remember your words?

    I hate to say that I’m right all the time and your wrong but all you need is common sense to come to the right conclusion.

    See smart, no nonsense people don’t just believe just to believe, someone has to show up proof that they care, there must be evidence right in front of us to believe. What’s funny is you had Eddie and Walsh as an example yet you still believe you could win the opposite way.

    See we’re not complaining we just tell it like it is in the real world. You want us all to follow you into fantasyland and just believe in nothing. Sorry but only a sheep would mindlessly do such a thing.

    Now do you get it?

    Jesus…. who wants to blog with Chuck? By the looks of his blog, nobody. Haven’t the players reported? Guess it’s time for Chuck to bring back Snnark and AlleyCat. LMFAO.

    Just saw Tomsula on television. Why is it that Tomsula holds his impromptu press conferences in what looks like an outdoor parking lot? Why wouldn’t you just get indoors, behind the podium? Thus far, Tomsula appears to be handling the press decently. But just you wait… for the losing. That’s when the fun will begin. The losing, the injuries, the unhappy fans…. and the Bay Area media playing to their disappointment. Then… that’s when I want to see Tomsula – taking bullets in his press conference…. “Okay.” “OKay.” “Okay.”

    Something tells me, Jim, that it’s not going to be “Okay” for you…

  57. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    From NN it looks like the O will strive to be an improved version of last years. Everything depends on a healthy OLINE and whether the new untested guards and RT can handle run blocking.

    Unless the OC presser was deception a Walsh era ball control short passing offense is not in the cards. Think Andrew Luck and Aaron Rodgers. He has to know every pass play in detail with read on D and where all receivers will be at the right times and when adjustments and hot reads are made.

    Both guards and RT will be new. We are drawing on the depth of last year to be the new starters. Seems like Boone has to be the RT even tho his body is LT. IMO the OLINE dictates a pass heavy O to have any chance to succeed.

    QB and OC is in the spotlight, cannot run and hide. No more power run first. They realize this with ZBS.

  59. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    bakkentom, you still have to run the ball, especially with a guy like Kaepernick. Opening up the formation is all well and good but it opens the gaps for both sides. Remember, Kaepernick was having a hard time recognizing pressure. And I think he was having trouble calling/adjusting protections as well.

    All those running plays which came after Kaepernick kill, kill, killed at the line went in as pass first.

    PFF has the Niners ranked 17th. That’s 8-8, a lot more optimistic than my 5-11.

  61. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Vegas had us at 8-8 for total wins Over/Under until Davis quit. Now I see it’s moved to 7.5.

  62. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    from docsports.com:

    San Francisco 49ers (7.5) – This number has been one of the biggest movers on the board, dropping from an open of 8.5. Jim Harbaugh went 44-20 over the last four years in San Francisco. Obviously that wasn’t good enough, and he was run off to Michigan. The 49ers have probably had the worst offseason in the NFL, and this win total suggests that they are set to slide back to their ugly pre-Harbaugh levels. I would concur with those projections.

  63. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Please tell me why you are so optimistic?

    I need specifics on how for example you think an injured rookie (Brandon Thomas) is going to outperform All Pro Iupati.

    CBs Culliver and Cox played at a high level. Does the oft injured Brock, second year CB Dontae Johnson and injured second year rookies step in and play at same high level?

    I keep hearing from you that change is the basis for your optimism. How so?

  64. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Niners made a personnel move today claiming Sean Hooey off waivers.
    He was just released by the Jests and was on the Rams practice squad last year.
    Again he is a big guy but only started 6 ngames in college.

    Cost seems to be a factor now in who they pick up.

  65. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    More on Sean Hooey OT

    Last year with the Rams

    Newest #49ers T Sean Hooey had a rough preseason in 2014 w/ STL. -17.7 grade over four games including -7.8 vs. GB where he allowed 5 sacks.

    Baalke briongs in another project. He’s fulfilling Jed’s request that he wants teachers as coaches. Sean Hooey needs a lot of coaching. Giving up 5 sacks in one game is almost unheard of.

  66. winderNo Gravatar says:

    bullit -It’s hard to replace someone like Iupati and maybe the player who does won’t have the same skill set. And since we don’t know who that is yet I can’t be very specif. As far as the CB’s go both players you mentioned played good ball. The specifics will have to wait until I see who’s really gonna be there I base most of my optimism on an offensive scheme that I haven’t seen yet either, but as I’ve stated plenty of times so far, in my mind anything is better than last year. There is no doubt in my mind had the coaching not changed we wouldn’t break .500 this year. I think both our running and passing game will be much better this year simply because we are changing game plans. When I actually see something i will say something. Do you honestly believe the players you mentioned can’t possibly be replaced with good and competent players?

  67. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    I’m just being pragmatic.
    Seeing is believing.
    I firmly believe that some of the apologists set the bar too high and had unrealistic expectations. Therefore they spent the year bitching claiming underachievement by the talent on the roster.
    The offense will go only as far as the QB takes them. I have stated I thought Kap had a very subpar year. A suprising stat is Kap rushed for only 1 TD last year. If Kap doesn’t show marked improvement we’ll be back to repeating last year or worse.

  68. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Christ, Bullit, I’ve said about 60 times I think the offense has the players to do much better with a more WCO based offense. Quicker plays, an offense that gets plays off faster, and gets the ball out of Kappy’s hands faster. Not the slow-ass plays we have been running.

    What part of this don’t you get? The first scrimmage they threw a screen play. I think this fact wasn’t lost on the players. This isn’t going to be the 2-plays-in-the-huddle-slow-moving offense. At least that’s the sense I’m getting. They can talk the talk about incremental change but I think they are going away from the last 9 years of running against 8-9 in the box and being very predictable.

    They’ve been 20th in yards 3 out of the 4 years under Harbaugh. It has never been an explosive offense. The bar is fairly low offensively. We’ll see how the defense reacts, but based on last year, they did pretty damn well despite the injuries. New coaches? Big deal. They have the players.

    This is like giving Dilfer credit for the Balt Super Bowl win in 2000. He was the steward of the offense while the defense kicked ass all over the place.

  69. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    No you aren’t, Bullitt Pragmatism is based on results. Not your thoughts on what will happen. You’ve been saying the next 10 years is a wasteland based on seeing nothing from the new regime. Pragmatism is based on actual results. Not the hysterical blatherings of the lemming brigade. Harbaugh pissed of the front office. It wasn’t just Jed and Trent. It was everyone he dealt with there. He’s gone. Again, there’s very little that would be different had Harbaugh stayed.

    In fact there’d be a shitload of animosity remaining if Harbaugh was still here. It would be another year of major distractions from the infighting among the front office and the coach. But that’s a good thing? No.

    You may think with all your heart that you know they will suck this year, but no one thought Harbaugh would come in and go 13-3 his first year. Did they?

    I have said all along I’ll formulate an opinion during the preseason games and training camp.

  77. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Vegas has 7.5 as the over/under. As stated about 30 times here Tom.

    Bullitt your opinion is already that the team sucks based on changes to the team. Get it. I’m optimistic because they have coaches that are vell-versed in the WCO. They are going away from the 2 plays n the huddle. They were terrible offensively last year, and they never were very great offensively, except for when Kappy was new and fresh.

    You are pessimistic because they fired St Jim, and you believe the hype around him as some sort of geneous. He rode his defense to victories, His offense, as stated by thousands is based in the 1970s. There were very little adjustments on the fly, and when his offense was figured out, it was easy to stop.

However, with this current clown show, when fans get pissed they sell desert camel rides and hire homers like Chuck to tell us it’ll be fun wondering the bad lands with no drink. And futhermore, they try to tell us how bad it was under Harbaugh when our bounties were plentiful, our women were easy and our cups runeth over with wine that was just too divine….

    NF, you said Colin has a tough time recognizing pressure and making adjustments. So he does not have command of the offense. He is intimidated by noise from D whether from blitzes, stunts, smacktalk.

    This O is the same with tweaks and refinements. This is a bad O which DC’s know how to shut down. There is not one O weapon that requires a double team. A WR1 was not drafted. Torrey Smith is not the magic bullet. The line will not hold up long enough for him to potentially scare a DC.

    This team needed an O guru. Make or break season for Colin. He has a similar playbook. He needs to show enough to warrant keeping him. His ceiling is not that high. Two 1st Rd picks plus or an average franchise QB.

    This team does not deserve average. Needs to show it this season or a bundle of picks from Cleveland.

  84. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    So you provide 3 links
    One is a music video

    If you look at Geep Chryst as the OC at San Diego his teams finished 28th in the NFL in offense.

    LMAO when you provide a Grant Cohn article to support your view. Didn’t you say Cohn was a hack who knows nothing? It’s that important to you to sell out and then he doesn’t even mention WCO. Too funny!!!

  86. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    If you look up Steve Logan’s offense at East Carolina they averaged 220 yds and game and less than 2 TD passes.
    They were not a high powered college offense especially in a lesser conference first as an independent and then in CUSA.

    Besides Logan is the QB coach. As I recall Chryst is part of the offense that you’ve been bitching about. He has much to prove.

  87. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    Logan was just quoted by Barrows saying that it was all about explosion plays, that a 48% completion rate with three explosion plays – 21 points – would make him happy.

    Walsh wouldn’t have slept at night, would’ve had migraines and been seeing a team of shrinks.

  88. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    That sounds more like Al Davis’ “bombs away” offense, going vertical the antithesis of the WCO. 48% is setting the bar really low.
    There is no basis for optimism where these guys saying this team will exceed last year’s record of 8-8.
    The reasons definitely are not the coaching staff or better players.

  89. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    Most posters here are saying similar, and have been since day one of the Jed and Trent clown show. That’s not following popular trends, for youse guys a little slow on incorporating reality into your thinking. But I can see it’s fun to pretend you’re a better fan by dissing anyone who sees the reality over the rosy glasses view.

    “After the worst off-season in the history of the NFL we’re set for that Super Bowl win which is the only banner we will raise and without it we look like fools.”

  92. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    When people say “they had figured out our offense” what they’re really saying is they figured out Kaepernick’s tendencies.

    We’ve been a run-first power team for many years. Nobody had to “figure that out”. Limit the passing game, too, by taking advantage of Kaepernick’s known and pretty obvious tendencies is what every defense will do given the chance.

  93. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Seems like every year the apologists come up with new excuses.

    It was the Niner receivers couldn’t get open and evolved to the receivers suddenly were getting open but dropping passes.
    That evolved to it’s the scheme and playcalling, yeah that what was wrong with the offense. So Harbaugh suddenly went to a spread
    with 4 and 5 wide and that made things worse. The apologists got their wish but developed amnesia when their scheme didn’t work.

    The common denominator is Kap who has yet to master the QB position. Things worked well for him at the beginning when DCs didn’t have film on him. Once they took away what he did best Kap couldn’t come up with a counter.
    That makes this season crucial to Kap being a NFL QB.

  94. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    As for why the Niners didn’t run a no huddle ofgfense it is obvious that Kap wasn’t capable.
    That was evidenced when anytime they were behind late in the game the Niners constantly still huddled wasting precious time on every play.
    What I saw was Kap did not know the offense well enough to call his own plays on the field. He still did not have command of the offense after 3 years of starting.
    I’ll give Kap credit when goes no huddle and leads the team from behind. So far I haven’t seen it.

  95. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    From Niner Nation analysis of Kap attempting passes last year.
    Pretty detailed and Kap wasn’t under the pass rush that the apologists would have you believe.
    The apologists randomly speculate and formulate conclusions.
    The author Greg Bozic reviewed every passing play of the season so this is very comprehensive.

    Can’t help you with all the Kool Aid you’ve been drinking.
    The apologist premise is sure Geep Chryst was a poor OC in San Diego but he can change.
    Some truth to that because it’s hard to be worse.
    Chuckles keeps talking WCO but the 2 links he provided doesn’t mention it once. In fact as RT said Logan wants a big play offense with explosive plays.
    WCO is controlled short passing game. Can’t have it both ways.

    You probably should stop hanging with Chuckles. His idiocy starts staining you by association. If you haven’t noticed he’ll use you to draw fire when it get’s too hot for him.

  102. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Winder, I thought you said you didn’t want to be asked for specifics. What do you mean when you say that?

    “– who’s pretending to be a better fan?” You guys on the rah rah side don’t make much of a secret of it.

    I cited facts in the form of Vegas odds makers’ predictions. You can read what Chuck wrote afterwards. It’s typical of what’s posted by the crew over there in response to anything that doesn’t say, “Super Bowl fershure dude,” no?

    As for Chuck, how does anyone rational claim to be fine with different opinions and spend all his blogging time over here calling people names because they have one?

  103. winderNo Gravatar says:

    bullit- I’m not drinking the kool-aid and nothing chuck has said is influencing me in any way. I do agree with him on one important point. Harbaugh was done here. Whether he mailed the last part of the season in, who knows. No one on this blog does, that’s for sure. Hope you have a nice season. Go Niners.

  104. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    No surprise that I heartily disagree that Harbaugh was done with the Niners. You are echoing Jed’s point of view and more about egos than football.

    Please provide concrete evidence that Harbaugh mailed it in or lost the locker room last season.

    As a Niner fan I will give a successful Niner coach and leader some respect and believe if you have a rumor or innuendo attach a name to the source to give it teeth or shut up with gossip which serves to undermine success.

    This week Alex Boone walked back comments he made about Harbaugh saying they were taken out of context. He stated that Harbaugh is his friend. Harbaugh is gone so there is no reason for Boone to reneg on what he stated previously.
    In fact nobody has stepped forward to affirm any of the rumors and lend their names and reputation to it.

  105. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Results? 8-8? Shittiest offense around? Losing to the Raiders?

  112. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    I saw the team have a 21 point lead against the Chargers at halftime. I then saw Kap gift the Chargers with a TD with a fumble that went for six and allows the Chargers to catch up and the game goes into OT. I saw the team take the ball to the Charger 38 in OT and then Patton fumbles.
    The Chargers had much to play for as they were fighting for a playoff slot, the Niners for pride.
    If you say they mailed it in then you must have been watching a different game.

  113. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    In losing 4 of their last 5 what was lacking was the QB averaging 120 yds passing a game and throwing 2 TDs in those 4 losses. If Kap puts up those kind of numbers the Niners will lose a lot more games with an impotent passing offense.

  114. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Staley questioned the play calling. As did Gore, VD, and Crabs.

    The players mailed it in, you nimrod. I figured you could discern that, but apparently not. They were tired of Harbaugh’s micromanaging and abusive style. Boone may have backed off what he said, but he did say it.

    With Logan talking about “explosion” plays and 48% completion percentages, you have to wonder if he and Geep Chryst are on the same page. We run that kind of offense, we’ll have a lot of three and outs and a gassed defense.

  118. winderNo Gravatar says:

    Lol, love you guys, just wanted you to know that. However, since we haven’t seen anything yet it’s all smoke. If I was Logan I wouldn’t tell any F-ing media A$$ anything with substance.

    Quotes from Crabtree right after the last game per Jennifer Chan of Niner Nation

    “What did Jim Harbaugh mean to you?

    “What was Jim Harbaugh like, post game, talking to you guys?

    Passionate. It’s Jim Harbaugh. Same Jim Harbaugh.

    Was that “Who’s got it better than us?”

    “Yeah, the last “Who’s got it better than us” and I said it as loud as I could.”

    San Jose Merc Kawakami interview with Joe Staley Sept 2014

    -Q: Has Harbaugh been any different this year?

    -STALEY: If I could say one thing Harbaugh’s done differently, he’s been a lot more receptive. He’s really made a conscious effort of open-door policy, listening to players, coaches. Not to say he didn’t do it in the past, but it’s really been emphasized, if you guys have an issue or just want to talk about your day, anything, his door is always open. He listens.

    Even today we got into a little heated argument. I had an opinion about one thing, he had an opinion about one thing. But we listened. I think you have a relationship with a guy that you respect. I think that’s special. I don’t think that’s everywhere.

    They are not as popular as they used to be with the internet but I still buy my favorites every year although cost at $7.99 each is getting silly. Still I look forward to seeing them and reading what they have to say.

    Most have Niners either 4th and one 3rd in the division. None have them making the playoffs.

    Doing detailed film study of the all 22 coaches film is very revealing. You can see with your own eyes which receiver is open, who misses a block and how much pressure the QB is really under.

    That is why there is a continuous attempt to discredit guys like NFL Films Greg Cossell because the truth hurts and goes against what they believe. Cossell has been doing this for over 25 years working for NFL Films. The sentimnt from the apologists is he’s never coached or played so what does he know.
    The film doesn’t lie so the apologists can’t accept the truth
    when the film blows a hole in their assertions.

    I’ve spent over 45 years watching football, Bullitt.


    Doesn’t make me an ex-spurt.

    You believe it was happy-pony-land with Harbaugh in SF despite countless reports of player dissension. You believe what you want to believe.

    Did our offense significantly change when we went from Smith to Kappy?

    No. Why or why not? Harbaugh ran the same outs and digs. Same running plays. They threw in some read option but went away from it when they tried to make him Peyton Manning. It didn’t work out well, did it?

  137. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:


  138. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Yes this is, Skeevie.

    What I find funny is that the QB gets no credit for the team’s success, yet accepts all the blame for the team’s poor play. Our WR corps led the league in drops last year. Or close to it.

    Harbaugh gets the kudos for the wins but bears no blame for the losses?

    Hard to beat that kind of logic.

  139. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Blah, blah, blah.

  140. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Diagnosing O and QB execution and performance via NFL Rewind is the ultimate fan experience. Kaep’s first year he was asked why he threw to Crabtree a lot and said simply because he was open alot. Same from the degree of difficulty article, Dallas D gave the greatest separation of WR-DB coupled with a weak pass rush.

    All of the film gave away our tendencies. Schemes, formations, motions and routes became predictable. The tool kit of Roman and Kaep got stale. Blame everywhere.

    Offseason improvements were needed and maybe fixed with a Bush here for the short stuff and a Torrey Smith there for the deep stuff and stretching the field for VD and Boldin. In the end it is on the QB. Read the D and make decisions pre and post snap.
    Take what the D gives you.

    No better example than Super Bowl and focusing Brady on the short stuff to RB and slot receivers. Or Luck beating Sherman with T Y Hilton deep. The path chosen is Luck and the long ball. Colts have an average OLINE so how were they successful. Can Kaep become a Luck. Doubt it.

    We needed an O mind like a Gase to make decisions. Does Kaep lack the smarts to command a modern pass heavy offense. Or better weapons like a Graham, Grooms as pass TE or a tall speedy WR1 that can separate from a DB and fight for and highpoint balls.

    This schedule will expose weaknesses everywhere. It may get ugly.

  141. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Coaches and GM’s under pressure to succeed. One of these guy’s are gonna Crack and TB should pounce on it. A 1st and two 2nd’s. Two 1st’s. Kaep’s highest value is in 2015. Otherwise stick with him and get the best weapons in 2016 draft.

  142. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Tom, you are right about that. Tendencies and schemes were easily discerned and exploited.

    The time it took to get plays in and executed was insane. You could say it cost us the Super Bowl. No delay of game and we aren’t backed up. Getting to the line with 8 seconds or less left on the play clock is a recipe for disaster, as we’ve seen time and time again. As I posted earlier in the article that was ridiculed by the sheep, it matters to have time to adjust on the line rather than shout kill kill kill to choose between 2 shitty plays.

    Trying to be the troll moron today.

    McCarthy in 2005 improved the team from 2-14 to 4-12 as OC.
    Since you are clueless in 2004 the 49ers were the worst team in football and had the #1 pick.
    McCarthy was hired because he had success in New Orleans as their OC before he came to SF.

    Geep Chryst has hadno success ss an OC in the eNFL.

    That’s why you’re an idiot and don’t understand football.

  146. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    It strikes me as a really shitty thing to do to Andy Lee – trade him right after his son dies. It wasn’t necessary. The trade doesn’t save the 49ers much money, and how many 7th rounders actually make the team and then make an impact? Lee Woodall? The pick acquired wasn’t worth it. The money saved wasn’t worth the further turmoil the trade created for a once great 49er – and his family. Seems like Baalke is classless. Jerome Simpson and now dumping Lee after his son dies? Baalke’s daughter tweeting about Roman? Baalke and York are two peas in a pod. Who’s proud to be a Niner fan now? I’m sure Chuck is, though. Chuck could be standing in the middle of China, convinced he’s in Mexico.

  150. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    VD’s pass catching was limited by Mad Mike’s offense, too, and MM’s a helluva offensive coordinator. Could it be that defenses were on to his deep route and he can’t catch anything else like superior pass catching tight ends do?

  151. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Spit could it be that Lee requested a trade/release so he could be closer to home? He played college ball at the Univ of Pittsburgh so may have roots in the area nearby Cleveland. In any case it’s closer by far to his So Carolina birth place than SF is.

  152. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    After reading of the untimely passing of their infant Daughter, it somewhat made sense to me, that there might have been a request to relocate as well Phil.
    Contract notwithstanding, the return value obtained was next to nil.
    Perhaps Baalke was simply looking to honor Andy with the move?

    I can understand the sentiment of possibly wanting to change the scenery after such a tragic event.
    Can’t be easy to focus, with that sort of heartache facing you on a daily basis.

  153. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Evan Mathis makes a lot of sense. Boone to RT. Brandon Thomas and Marcus Miller are young. Looney is backup quality. Stabilizes the line so Kaep has a chance to run a deep pattern O.

  155. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    NJ for Andy Lee the loss of a young child after a season + off season from Hell for the Niners would likely be the tipping point for him to reassess his career. It’s a sacrifice to play the game and so far from family in his case. Wouldn’t be surprised for him to say “Time to close the ranks with family and get closer to home”. What more could he expect to accomplsh here?

    Just a guess but makes sense

  159. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    He got traded for next to nothing.
    Andy gets paid, Baalke gambles on a Rookie Draft Pick.

    So, Chuck is saying he was dead wrong with the constant bitching about Vernon Davis’ ‘poor play’ last year?

    I said all year, and showed the stats for those who accept numbers as part of the analyses, that Davis’ targets were few.

    And I can’t remember a single instance in watching every game in the all-22 views where Kaepernick looked for Davis and had to come off him because he was covered.

    Some folks are so invested in blaming Harbaugh for things they cannot know they’ll jump on anything to hang on him, even if it makes all their previous rantings look even more foolish.

  171. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Let’s go Dubs! Tonight’s the night I think the Warriors put away the Cavs. In the beginning of the series the Warriors puckered. Even Draymond was saying “We were soft.” The pucker factor is always real. You see quarterbacks in big games getting a little less accurate or not seeing the field like they normally do in the regular season (Peyton Manning). You see teams playing tight, afraid to lose or make fools of themselves. Golf is a great sport for watching and analyzing the pucker factor. That’s why the job Jordan Speith did at the Masters was so much fun to watch. What a performance.

    But the Warriors have overcome the pucker factor, not due to them overcoming it, or their own greatness, but because Lebron gave them the confidence by showing, with tired legs, that he’s just a man. The minute Lebron showed he could get tired, the Warriors pounced and that’s all they needed. They smelled blood in game four….

    I wrote about the Warriors not having the heart of a champion, but I think through Lebron’s tired legs the Warriors have grown the confidence to put this series away and possibly grow the heart of a champion tonight. And that heart will forever change those players wherever they go.

    I think the Cavs are done for only one reason – Lebron claiming he’s the best in the world post game five loss. In my opinion, that was Lebron conceding a lost Finals series. Lebron was saying, “We might lose this series, and my NBA Finals record will now be a tarnished 2-2, but I’m still the best player in the world even if we lose.” In saying he’s the best player in the world, he took the struggle off his team, disrespecting them, and put the focus on Lebron’s legacy. When you disrespect your teammates, and you put the spotlight on you in the middle of series, you’re through. You’re done. Lebron saying, “I’m the best in the world,” was Lebron conceding another Finals loss.

    The question tonight really becomes how strong are Lebron’s legs? Can he give his hometown one last show? He’ll definitely try. The Warriors have figured out how to push the tempo against the Cavs, with the Cavs appearing, at least for now, not to have any answers (I think Blatt needs to be more patient with Masgov).

    Lebron does have the heart of a champion. He will no doubt give everything he’s got tonight, to force a game 7, and the Warriors better be ready. But the heart of a champion, which is still suspect in the Warriors’ camp, is created tonight when the Warriors put their foot on Lebron’s neck and they don’t let it up. The Cavs are tired. The Warriors should win if they don’t pucker and make their jumpers.

    I look for my boy, Draymond Green, to lead the Warriors to victory… tonight…. in Cleveland. Because the heart of a champion puts its foot on the opposition’s neck when they’re down. And the Cavs, after losing two straight, are down. Don’t let Big Mo swing back in the Cavs favor. Draymond will crush their souls with dunks, 3’s and great D. You watch. Draymond’s a champion, and the heart and soul of this Warriors’ team.

  172. ReddingRexNo Gravatar says:

    Unca_chuck says:

    “No shit, NoFear? There are myriad reasons why the offense was dogshit. However, mpost of them were related to the coaching staff. “

    Chuck, I need to ask you are individuals ever held responsible? I mean with Alex Smith you once told me that if he were on the 80’s team those we would’ve still won Super Bowls. You always blamed the offensive line, or lack of receivers why Alex Smith struggled, can you ever admit that the person you defend no matter what is incompetent? You say No Fear is sniffing glue?

    The examples set by Eddie and Walsh just sail right over your head. The Primetime play of Joe Montana is so easily forgotten with you and together you think that winning formula can be bypassed yet still win. I understand that after Joe won us four Super Bowls you were quick to throw him under the bus because of Steve Young but this only shows your lack of class and character. This is why you struggle with right and wrong and you think because smart fans will only support winning moves that we’re whining. You just can’t see that if the same thing that happened in Seattle happened here that we would be on board but it didn’t yet you want us to act as if it did, you’re a mental case.

    Ok if it’s just a game to you then I understand this is all for fun and it’s no big deal but for someone like you who has a blog and devotes all his time to the team you should take things more seriously and face the true facts concerning the team and not just paint a rosy colored picture no matter what transpires.

    I can’t believe I have to try and explain this to you! Kaepernick is a flash in the pan, he’s a nobody with an ego as big Golden Gate Bridge. He’s classless, a thug that has no business wearing our uniform yet you don’t care and that’s alarming especially when you call yourself an old time fan that should hold some kind of standards. Elite QB like Rodgers and Wilson they find a way to win. Legendary QB’s don’t need excuses made for them, players like Montana elevate the play around them.

    Nobody is saying that the Quarterbacks wins alone all I’m saying is the reality of things are outcomes of NFL games are almost always decided by the performance of one player and one player only, the Quarterback. Now why is this so hard for you to comprehend? Will that’s a whole other conversation.

    Ding, Ding, Class has ended!

  173. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    I thought they didn’t have the heart of a champion, spitty.

    Oh that’s right. You observe things after they happen. Brilliant.

    Who said the Dubs would win after game 3? That would be me. I still think so, BTW.

    Hate to tell you this, v but no one reads your shit.

  174. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    V – Have you ever rooted for a black qb? It’s an honest question. I liked Mike Vick before he went to the dog fights. Think about it. Have you ever supported a black qb?

  175. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Spit, Ben Roethlisberger made it to the Super Bowl his rookie year after the starter went down to injury, the year was 2004 I believe. Made it to other Super Bowls in subsequent years.

    That is a direct comparison. Why did Ben beat the DC’s while your black QB did not. The onus of proof is on you. Bill Walsh handed a new O to the niners so Montana had that advantage.

    Another wrinkle to explain is Brady in the same years as Ben did it with worse receiving weapons. Until proven otherwise your black QB is a failure.

  176. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Russell Wilson might have a good laugh about that.

  177. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    That is a great example, overlooked because he is a master of extending broken plays with both mediocre line and receivers. But he got it done. RW is also short.

  178. winderNo Gravatar says:

    Tom- Montana benefited the most from the new defense that was drafted (Lott, Williamson, Wright) and the FA’s/trades that the organization made (hacksaw, Dean). Once Hofer went down and until we got Wendell Tyler we had no running game whatsoever. Montana was the magic man that made our WR’s spectacular. They were a good group but none were considered top flight WR’s.

  179. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    Spitty, I got the exact same impression from Lebron’s comments:
    “I have confidence (that we’ll win the series) because I’m the best player in the world.”

    Translation: “We’re toast, but everybody knows I should have been MVP and I’m going to focus on rubbing it in to the guys who didn’t vote for me before we go down.”

  180. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Warriors O, Curry, Thompson, etc feed off their D. When Iggy went in game 4 old man LeBron had to work on tired legs. Couldn’t do it and starting in game 3 w/ D Lee in there- small ball- the Warrior did indeed pounce = Curry started dropping bombs.

    Iggy, D, yeah Draymond are leading the Ws charge. LeBron can’t do it all and he’s not going to. He’s got the heart and mouth of a champion but the legs not so much.

    Dubs tonight, GO

  181. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah, RT, when he said that I knew they were toast. Even if you say it in the heat of the moment, you can’t change your words. His teammates are questioning him.

    One of two things will happen tonight. The Warriors will either blow the Cavs out, or the Warriors will pucker and keep the Cavs in the series. But what happens is now dictated by Warrior play – not Lebron’s play.

    BakkenTom – I’m not even talking about whether or not black qbs are capable. I’m just talking about whether or not V has ever rooted for one. I guess the two are connected, but if V’s never rooted for one, somewhere along the lines there was a chance for V to do so with a potentially good black qb (Cunningham, Vick, Wilson, etc), and if V’s never rooted for one, his hatred for Kaep is discredited. And Bakketom, so might yours be. Skeebers’ dislike for Kaep is also discredited because Skeebers loves him some Alex Smith. He’s got an Alex Smith poster on his wall in his bedroom his wife begs for him to take down. No chance. That baby’s stayin’ up forever…. When Skeebers gets scared of the dark at night, thoughts of Alex Smith weathering the hostel Candlestick crowd during the Singletary era gives Skeebers strength.

  182. ReddingRexNo Gravatar says:

    Spit, Yes I like Russell Wilson not only as a Quarterback but as a person. Warren Moon as well and I never had a problem with Michael Vick in fact, I was arguing with Chuck about him coming here. He said he should be in jail along with Eddie.

    You might here this a lot but really it doesn’t have nothing to do with color it’s all about class, character and ability, period!

    PS what about those Warriors? LOL!!!

  184. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Okay V, fair enough. So Kaep’s transgressions are that he has tattoos and he was involved with an altercation in a Miami hotel room with a woman… and that he wears headphones in press conferences? Let’s keep in mind that Kaep was adopted. I’m not apologizing for Kaep’s behavior in Miami, but things could be a lot worse. The adoption angle might not really be a factor because of the family that adopted him, but the kid grew up in Turlock. Nobody comes out of Turlock with character. Nobody. San Mateo and Chico? Yes. Turlock? No chance.

    Chuck, you liberals are hilarious trying to prove the entire world is racist. What you fail to understand when you mindlessly support something that you obviously don’t understand is you insight the very hatred you complain about. Talking out of your rear as if your family personally freed the slaves is just that, a made up belief that you hide behind to try and make yourself look better.

    Please try and have this register in your coconut for once, if Russell Wilson was here no one would say anything and do you know why? It’s not because he’s black or white, it’s because he has class and integrity that once was the standard here until your anything goes crowd allowed us to go from 49er pride, with standards and turn us into the Raiders Nation overnight! Yes a team you once made fun of.. but I guess it’s all right now because Kap wears our colors, lol!!! This has nothing to do with Kaps Color and where he came from, it has to do with his cocky, it’s all about me, I’m a Super Star, look at me attitude. This me, me, me, it’s all about me and the lack of respect for the game and total lack of class behind center doesn’t win championships. Humility is a key attribute in a successful person. Lack of modesty and humility is a key attribute to show just how successful person is going to be.

    Something you clearly forgot is you win with class and there’s not to many Detroit Piston’s winning Championships because if you notice most teams that win championships are gracious, humble and are role models for our young children. Sadly being a puppet you lost sight of what respect is and what it means to show good sportsmanship and class on and off the field.

    Players who have humility seem to understand that they are a part of something bigger than themselves and keep their ego high on the field of play and humility high off the field. These players win championships not players like Kaepernick who think they’re Montana without winning anything.

    Nice Chuck there you go with your responsibility problem. Sadly the Black community has been brainwashed by the left into thinking they are getting help. They are kept in financial and social slavery by the policies of the people you defend. Just check out the worst cities in the US for black poverty and who’s the leadership there, it is all liberal democrats running the show. Problem is a liberal can never tell the truth, if they did no one would support their crazy agenda.

    Thomas Jefferson said it well: “I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.” The black poverty that you act as if you care about is all because of your liberal agenda by throwing large sums of money at the problem instead of fixing the problem. You’re not interested in Black people all your interested in is blaming the white man for their problems.

    Oh let me guess if anyone was born white they’re now labeled a racist and a damn cracker right? Again instead of you pointing the finger at who’s responsible it’s all our faults and no ones held accountable right? What a whack job!

    Those salary cap dollars are huge. Colin’s prove it year. Eli Manning plus draft picks 1,2, and 3 for WR1, QB2, and big pass TE. New HC, OC, and get the O to be the best in the NFL.

    Top ten pick still looks guaranteed. If TB tanked the draft then no Evan Mathis. Boone goes LG and RT disaster will guarantee a bad year.

    The available salary cap dollars are a testament to the state of the Niners. In 2017 the GM is going to have half of the salary cap to spend.

    As I have said previously the Niners will only go as far as their starting QB is going to take them. If he doesn’t perform at a high level it is extremely difficult to win a Lombardi.

    Very painful being a niners fan. QB has to be fixed. Eli just the start. Pick and develop a future franchise QB and get a sharp O minded HC.

    Colin has a future but not here. Trade for picks next offseason. Must be able to be another Aaron Rodgers. Read D, make decisions, and have a high football IQ.

    If Peyton Manning retires then he is the next OC.

    Chuck says buying your way out of a rape charge is cool as long as you are rich and white. Liberalism is a mental disease. Chuck, you run a blog so you are supposed to follow football. Must have read about Jameis Winston then. If that criminal was drafted by the niners I would join thousands and publicly curse the team if not worse.

    How about that animal as the face of the franchise. We all bitch about York but the Bucs owner has ruined the brand of that team. Nice to be rich enough to burn money.
