Looney Tunes

Next week a new class of concussion lawsuit plaintiffs will place their delicate noggins inside NFL helmets and begin the long, hard road to dementia by knocking the snot out of each other for the next six months. Thanks guys! Sorry about the brain damage.

2011 was a magical season for the 49ers, so it stands to reason 2012 will not be. What we can reasonably hope is that it does not become a nightmare.

As expected, Dashon Goldson did not sign a long term contract Monday, so this will undoubtedly be his last year in San Francisco. Since we know the 49ers only offer totally fair contracts, it can be assumed that either Goldson or his agent have incurred brain damage, whether concussion related or not. Either that, or they know of an NFL owner that has brain damage and can’t wait to sit across the bargaining table from said owner next offseason.

Now that the 49ers are back in the winner’s circle, fans will probably move from the Please Win A Game room to the Style Point Victories room. Last year, the team won a lot of narrow decision games. This year, fans will want to see some knockouts — lots of them. There might even be some booing if we win by less than two touchdowns.

It’s been said the 49ers can’t repeat the +28 turnover differential this year, which is probably true. People who don’t like the Niners, or don’t like the West Coast, or are just ignorant baboons have used this expected fall off as a prop for predicting the team’s demise back into the pack this year.

However, a modest +14 differential would achieve the same scoring impact this year if the team scored TDs instead of FGs from their turnovers. Which, of course, it will do with our new explosive offense. The team will actually be better off at (+14 + TDs) > (+28 + FGs) because of the extra points! We shall overcome, comrades!

Some of you might be shaking your head and wondering if Skeebers is off his meds again. Go ahead. Skepticalize all you want. But the raw truth of these equations will stick in your head and eventually bubble up into outrageous optimism by the start of the season. Unca_Chuck will even claim he said it all along!

One thing we won’t have this season will be the light-hearted soliloquies of long time 49er blogger NoFear49er. Our Yukon iglooian submitted his retirement papers in early July and will no longer be an Outsider commenter. The Smith Haters Club will be holding a wake in the Candlestick parking lot before the first regular season game. So long, Skippy! We’ll miss you.

In the meantime, there are only a few days left of this long, long offseason. Plenty of time to whip up on your mother, take a DUI spin on the freeway at 3:00am, host a party where everyone’s packing heat, or do any other wild and wacky nonsense you can think of to jeopardize your multi-million dollar career or just your humble, anonymous life as a rootin tootin blogging man.

    Only 2 days until rookies report!

  2. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    The Smith haters are rooting for him to be injured or for nary a win when he plays so they don’t have to run from their inflated opinion.

  3. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Hey rob! Troy Smith is still available!

  4. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    RIP Cleveland Elam.

  5. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    NoFear obviously had fear and left. He’s fearing Alex will have a good year. He’ll be back if he doesn’t. Alex doing poorly fuels his igloo.

  6. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Alex Smith sucks.

  7. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    There, that last post was to help out NoFear. That should send a little power to his igloo so he can turn his computer on and respond.

  8. robNo Gravatar says:

    good morning BERGER
    we don’t need troy smith anymore because of our depth at QB !

    imho we’re stacked at QB with smith , copernicus , johnson and tolzein there !

  9. Unca ChuckNo Gravatar says:

    You hitting the bottle this morning, Bergs?
    Well, that’s the rub, eh Skeebs? It doesn’t take a genius to understand that the +28 turnover rate is very hard to sustain. They will likely be on the + side, and 15 sounds about right, but the 3rd down conversion rate and red zone offense were way off last year. They were compensated for by the turnovers. If they can’t count on the tunovers, they need to do a better job of ball control. Or there will be problems.

  10. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Unca- I don’t need alcohol to be annoying!

  11. Unca ChuckNo Gravatar says:

    For once, I agree with you 100%

  12. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    It is a common blogger trait. You fit this description too.

    Niner Nation broke down VD’s TD
    in the NFC Championship with
    some expert analysis of that play.


    Hopefully more to come this year with a smart offensive scheme.

  16. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    NF bailing was inevitable.
    All he cared about was hating Alex Smith and redemption for Mike Nolan.
    For me the writing was on the wall when he kept criticizing me for my spelling of Bullit and then challenging me on a personal level to reveal what heroic deeds
    I had performed in my life.
    That’s when I knew he was headed outta the reservation.

  17. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    bullit- Anybody who defends Nolan’s D-line coaching style, with the players he chose to play that style, can’t be taken seriously.

  18. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Same with Spitty. At the end he kept up his conspiracy theory that I was Chuck. Not sure which one of us should feel more insulted.
    That conspiracy theory is almost as good as V claiming he was blogging before there was an internet. (he claims yje early 90’s and we all know that Al Gore hadn’t invented it yet. I think the first blogs were around 2005 and 49er blogs 2007-2008. Somebody should enlighten me on this because I’m guessing.

  19. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    No, you’re right. Al Gore hadn’t invented it yet!

  20. Unca ChuckNo Gravatar says:

    Internet relay chat (IRC) was around in the late 90s.

  21. robNo Gravatar says:

    JOE agrees with me

    ” Joe Montana, who won four Super Bowls with the 49ers in the 1980s, thinks this season’s team can capture the Lombardi Trophy.

    “Everybody in the Bay Area is excited to see how it’s going to go,” Montana told Yahoo! Sports Radio on Wednesday. “Their defense played spectacular last year, and if they can even come close to that, I think they’ve got a good chance of going all the way.”

  22. robNo Gravatar says:

    nice job on this one !


    and don’t forget … this will not only be smith’s second year with the same offense for the first time ever , but it’s first time he’s had a full offseason in the new offense !

    superbowl here we come !

  23. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Actually, Alex had two years in the RayeGun offense.

    For what little that was worth…. lol.

  24. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Not true Mr Grump. Raye was replaced after about 5 games in Alex’s 2nd season and IIRC, Alex took over mid-season the previous year. That gave him 2 half years, or if I’m adding correctly, 1 year. And I am not sure the Raye offense even counts as an offensive system. Definitely not for a QB.

  25. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Just call this old horse, “Swayback.” My back is totally outta whack. How the hell Montana recovered from back surgery, I’ll never know. St. Joe indeed.
    Luckily for me I don’t have to throw a football. Just converting Vicodin and muscle relaxers on 3rd and 3 works for me.

  26. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Hey, Berger. Would you rather have 4 more years of Obama and Alex Smith. Or 4 more years of Romney and Tolzien?

  27. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    And if you vote for the Obama/Smith ticket, Harry Reid is going to be your GM for those same 4 years.

  28. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Berger, Raye got replaced, but the new guy , Johnson, was essentially running the same offense. Same plays and terminology. A little better play calling, and fewer delay of game penalties because of JimmyHat’s senior moments, but it was not a new offense.

    Actually, if you look at Alex’s numbers, he did okay statistically during the ‘Raye without Raye’ half-season. His QBR for the second half of 2010 was respectable. The team did not really start winning until Singletary was finally kicked to the curb, though. Even the defense looked far better once he was gone.

  29. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Off topic in a WTF moment. I am saddened and shocked what happened in Aurora, CO last night.
    14 killed and 50 wounded in a packed movie theater to see “The Dark Knight Rises” movie premiere.
    Apparently a lone gunmen and this happened in the same metro area as Columbine.
    What is going on? Are we going to have to go through metal detectors
    to see a movie? Movies are for kids and now you have to worry about this crap?


  30. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Grumpy- I totally disagree. Johnson had a totally new offense. Yes, they did use the same terminology but you have to mid season. Raye used to call patterns where everybody would go deep and nobody would cut through the vacated middle. Johnson did not do that. Johnson’s play calling had more options for the QB and that alone makes it a different offense. The only similarities was running on 1st and 2nd down but I think that was Single Neuron. I think if Johnson had a decent HC he would have been an OK OC. I do not feel that way about Raye.

  31. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Rookies report tomorrow!

  32. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Del- You know my answer. Go Tolzien!

  33. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    People can just be nuts sometimes. Why don’t they just kill themselves and let other be? About 20 years ago some lady decided to drive her car on a sidewalk in downtown Reno, killing many. Why? A year ago we had a truck driver ram an Amtrak train in rural Nevada. Why? These people should just kill themselves and let others be. My guess is usually they want attention and sometimes they just flip out.

  34. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Semantics, Berger. I consider it the same because it was the same terminology – even the plays were the same playbook, Johnson just actually USED the playbook, rather than Raye’s “Gore, Gore, Long incompletion, punt”. Alex did not have to learn a whole new system – Johnson just made the system semi-functional. At least as much as he could with Singleneuron looking over his shoulder wondering why we weren’t running on every play. The continuity meant that Alex was able to be comfortable and play reasonably well over that stretch. We still kept losing, because Singletary had no idea what the hell he was doing.
    As to this season, with a real TC, I hope that Alex will take another step forward. And get some chemistry on the field with Moss and maybe even Crabs. A modest step forward on offense and we have a really good shot at a very successful year, maybe even a Super Bowl.

  35. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Unfortunately the mindset of a lot of people is to be selfish.

    Misery loves company and if I’m unhappy everyone should be too seems to be the track that many choose to take.

  36. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Kenny Britt was arrested for a DUI last night. Latest police blotter member along with Robert Quinn.
    I hadn’t realized this was Britt’s 7th brush with the law.
    Jason Kidd the NBA player is pushing 40 yet he crashes his car into a tree on a DUI.
    These guys have the cash to hire themselves a team of drivers. Why are they that stupid?
    They need to throw the book at these DUI offenders because they could be running into your car or your families and are a menace to society.
    One a day is one too many IMHO

  37. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    bullit- Your 8:38 post. Agreed.

  38. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Berger, people who do shit like Aurora are not classically suicidal or depressed. They are angry, hateful, spoiled little sh1ts. They’ve had sunshine and rainbows blown up their @ss as kids, never disciplined, never forced to grow up. They become so-called adults and fail. Since they cannot blame their failure on themselves, they turn it on others – sometimes anonymous crowds, sometimes targeted on minorities or other groups who have “shafted” them. There are way too many angry, irrational imbeciles in this society.

  39. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Grumpy- That too. It is all the above and it has always happend since the beginning of society and will always happen in the future. It is just a shame.

  40. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Abrayo Franklin signs a one year deal with the Chargers. One humble pie thrown in as a bonus.

  41. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    NoFear will be following the Chargers and Atlanta this year. That is where Franklin and Nolan are. For his third team we need to know where Moran Norris goes.

  42. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    You forgot the Bengals (Clements & Lawson).

  43. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    NoFear was not a Lawson fan. Probably because I was. He did like Clements. One thing is for sure, NoFear loved to pick the losers. I think they all had Nolan ties?

  44. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    NoFear had his quirks, but he was an interesting guy and I’ll miss having him around.

  45. 12th manNo Gravatar says:

    Me too Skeebs.

  46. robNo Gravatar says:

    any news from training camp yet ?

  47. robNo Gravatar says:

    wow ! i hope NOFEAR isn’t really going to quit blogging ! wtf man !

  48. robNo Gravatar says:

    please tell me we re-signed brooks ! i just watched the replay of the saints / niners playoff game , and brooks was a key player in it imo !

  49. robNo Gravatar says:

    omg ! does anybody here play something called “buzztime” ?

  50. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Rob, if that’s anything like “Quarters,” I just bought myself two rolls.

  51. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Side note: I was pretty goddamn good at that game — thanks to a lot of practice. I could also flip and catch those quarters off my elbow. That made for a good parlor trick until the time I would drop them all. Oops.

  52. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    One thing I have learned, Unca chuck has no idea of what he says. He only talks of Democrat ideals as they relate to sports while claiming to be an Independent. Funny shit. But Nate Schierholtz is not important because Unca said so. I’ll tell you who is not important, Unca Chuck.

  53. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I hope Nate plays today!

  54. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Nate Schierholtz??? He has 12 RBIs and is batting .248
    this year. In 6 seasons he has 21 HRs and 114 RBIs in his career.
    Are you related to Nate?

  55. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Congratulations Schierholz hit a leadoff HR. #22 in his career

  56. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Your relative Nate is having the game of his life. He just tied the game with another solo homer,

  57. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Nate can play!

  58. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Blow in out yer ass, Bergs. Nate is barely a 4th outfielder. You got a hard-on for him? Bully. Don’t look now. Harrry’s at the door . .

  59. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    One thing I’ve learned is the Berger is a chickenshit poster who is a petulant whiny drunk. It’s pretty obvious his wife runs the house, and he gets his rocks off drinking alone in the garage. You and Spitty swapping tales? Nice of you to hit a bunch of different blogs and talk shit, skippy.
    The big question is, why do you give a shit what I think of Nate? He’s had 5-6 opportunities to be a starting OFer with the Giants. HE hasn’t cut it. You don’t like it? Call Bochy.

  60. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Christ, you in high school, Bergs? Or stuck reliving it?

  61. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Hey, Berger! Matty Stinks on Ice! He’s my fantasy QB for this year. The answer’s, yes. I have been drinking. But I still think Ryan’s gonna have a good year. We’ll see..

  62. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Hey, Chuck. I wasn’t around when Berger went off on your ass. Hell. I even gave ya a few pot-shots early in the morning. But when I realized you weren’t around to retaliate, I put up the white flag. It’s no fun joking on a guy when he can’t joke back.

  63. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Looks like Unca was hitting the bottle.

  64. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Unca- Got anymore expert words of wisdom about players that aren’t any good? Whatever you say, we’ll just figure the opposite.

  65. Unca ChuckNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah, it’s a new dawn for Nate the Late Schierholtz.
    5.5 years of mediocre < One good day. Right, Bergs. ADD theatre in action.

    Nate has taken 5 years to put up the numbers of one good season. Why is that?

  66. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    At the beginning it was a flawed swing that left a gaping hole under his hands. Now that he has rebuilt his swing, lately it has been injuries and lack of consistent playing time. He played most of last year with a bad shoulder. This year he can’t get any consistent playing time.

  67. Unca ChuckNo Gravatar says:

    In the end, it’ wishin’ and hopin’ and prayin’ . . .
    Most players have it figured out by 28.

  68. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Are we talking about Nate, or Alex Smith?

  69. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Alex bashing is next week. Except on PFT. They have us picked 4th in their power poll but think we need a better QB. We shall see about that.

  70. Unca ChuckNo Gravatar says:

    Ask Bergs. He’s got a wild hair up his ass over some inocuous comment I apparently made 3 months ago regarding his boy toy Nate the (not so) great. Bergs has shot up the charts to be the president of the Cult of Nate fan club. It’s him and a bunch of 12 year old girls who think he’s dreamy. . . .

  71. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Just saw the gunman James Holmes
    for the first time in court in Colorado. There’s a lot of hate in that guy.
    Nothing like a dumb Congressman from Texas who was wondering why nobody in the theater audience was packing a weapon to return fire. He get’s the moron of the year award. Nothing like a gun battle in a crowded theater filled with tear gas with the shooter in body armor head to toe.
    He has an assault rifle with a 100 round magazine, a shotgun and a .40 cal Glock. Chances are you would most likely shoot an innocent person or two in the crossfire or the cops would shoot you when they arrived seeing you have a gun. This isn’t the wild west and bad things happen in a gunfight.
    The Congressman’s name is Louis Gomert and he’s an idiot period.

  72. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    I am hoping Goldson signs the tender and is in TC on time.
    No games or pouting with a holdout. In reality he has nothing to gain by staying out and will hurt the team.

  73. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Unca- You said it before you went to Pismo. Basically, your comment was interpreted by me as I don’t know shit and your shoot from the hip comments make you an expert. That and some 8% beer and you were nothing but a target. A fun target. Too bad you were out of town, that took some of the fun away, but I had fun, I hope you did too.
    BTW, I am recommending IPA 395 to anybody who likes micro-beer. Did you do any clamming?

  74. Unca ChuckNo Gravatar says:

    Rented a coupe ATVs with my son and flew around the dunes . . . never been there before, and it was a blast . . . we got there early enough to avoid too much congestion out there.
    PS. You don’t know shit about baseball. Stick to fixing Alex’s footwork.

  75. Unca ChuckNo Gravatar says:


  76. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    bullit- If somebody behind him had a gun many lives could’ve been saved. I doubt he had armor on his head.

  77. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    You know stats, I know how to swing a bat. I hit .473 in “A” ball and always hit #4 in hardball and softball. I could definitely hit a ball. I couldn’t field very well, but I could hit.
    I do know some people who vacation at Pismo. They take their ATVs and say it is a blast.
    I take it you are not going to check out the Tuesday blues at Squaw Valley. It isn’t too far from where you live.

  78. Unca ChuckNo Gravatar says:

    Probably not. . . . too much other shit going on . . .

  79. Unca ChuckNo Gravatar says:

    Ooooh. Clean-up hitter in beer league softball? Why didn’t you say so? You and Rod Carew have a lot in common.
    I know what I see. And that’s a guy who is lost most of the time. If he could consistently lay off the back-foot slider maybe he’d get his average up. As it is, he’s inconsistent at best, and at this point in his career, he’s a 4th OFer/defensive replacement. Nothing more.
    You have more excuses to dole out?

  80. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Clean-up hitter playing pro hard ball too. Tell me how many people hit .473 in “A” ball. Go look at some stats. If I could field I could a been a contenda! My bigger other problem was an elbow that went bad too often. I hurt it arm wrestling and it never seemed to completely heal. I recommend that baseball players never arm wrestle.
    There you go again, shooting from the hip.

  81. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Unca- It is funny you mentioned Rod Carew. That is who Nate’s swing reminded me of before he rebuilt it. I could never figure out why a guy as powerful looking as Nate would swing like that. Now he is standing more upright, his stance is more closed and he is standing away from the plate instead of on it. Just as he starts rolling last year he hurts his shoulder. If they let him play more this year you’ll see a good player.

  82. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    When Marvin Bernard has better career numbers then you’re not a legit starting outfielder.
    Is it because Nate is from Reno that makes you so fond of him?

  83. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    He was wearing a “ballistic helmet” which means Kevlar.
    He even had a ballistic throat wrap and a groin protector.
    Head to toe body armor.
    Goo luck in trying to hit his head from 25 feet in a tear gas filled theater. Too bad for you idf you miss and hit somebody else
    by mistake. You lose everything
    and have to live with shooting perhaps a kid by mistake.
    How do you carry a concealed weapon in the summer when everyone
    is in shorts and a t shirt?
    Be like Plaxico and accidently shoot yourself because the gun is slipping through the waistband of your sweats?

  84. Unca ChuckNo Gravatar says:

    Wow. I’m impressed, Bergs. Well, no. Because you hit .473 means Nate should be starting? Have fun connecting the dots, skippy. You must be a tap dancer as well. Like I said, what happend this June? Mr rebuilt swing went 6-33 with 10 k’s. That’s why he isn’t a starter. They ‘let him play’ through a lot of 2010. He hit .246.
    Shooting from the hip? Nate has never been able to secure a spot as a starter because he hasn’t hit well enough. End of story. If it’s due to nagging injuries, well, tough shit. Playing through nagging injuries is part of the game. He simply isn’t cutting it.
    Wishin’ hopin’ prayin’ . . . I see you want to take over for Spitty in posting stupid drivel to garner responses.
    PS. How do you sneak up behind a guy wearing black in a dark theatre who is standing at the exit? Oh, that’s right. You’re a ninja assassin as well.

  85. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Back to football.
    Niners made a move and sighed a Safety today Mark McBath.
    They are following last year’s formula when they signed Madieu Williams to light a fire under Goldson. Maiocco doesn’t think DG will be there at the start of camp.

  86. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I am for concealed weapons, you guys aren’t. Your responses are predictable. Criminals will get their weapons whether they are legal or illegal. If they know nobody else can shoot at them they are just empowered. Do you know why crime is so low on my dirt road? The criminals know we all have guns.

  87. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    bullit- I forgot Nate was from Reno. I’ll use that.

  88. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    The question at hand is not concealed weapons but a guy armed
    like he’s going to war in a crowded theater. Can you handle
    missing the guy and hitting someone behind him or the bullet passing through him and killing someone else? It’s easy to say things in hindsight but unless you’re trained for this it’s going to take you a minute to figure out what’s going on.
    Too many variables when you think about it. How do you know if he;s the only gunman? How do you prevent the cops from shooting you
    when they arrive and see you with a gun?

  89. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    This Holmes guy was not just a criminal but a stone cold deranged mass murderer. He had bought over 6000 rounds of ammo. He was planning to kill a lot of people with the ammo.

  90. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    It is very possible that in a situation like that you just get on the floor. Just because one is armed does it mean the weapon should always be used. One thing I can say in a situation like that, I’d rather have the option.

  91. Unca ChuckNo Gravatar says:

    My response is predictable? Really. Your position is ludicrous. Do you walk around Reno with a gun, Bergs? Say, Hot August Nights? I ask, because drinking and blogging is challenge enough for you. I can hardly imagine you walking around Reno on a nice 103º night with you hammered and in possession of a weapon. No crime on your dirt road? Spare me. Just cuz you don’t have shit worth stealing is a bigger deterrent than any weapons you may have.
    You going to go to the movies packing now? How about the ice cream parlor? I mean shit, someone cuts line, bullet to the head. What are the concealed weapons laws in Nevada these days?

  92. Unca ChuckNo Gravatar says:

    You got your CCW, Bergs? For those dangerous trips to the BevMo?

  93. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Unca- I do not carry a weapon. I have no problem with people that do. Most of my friends do.
    I have figured out your calling in life. Since you don’t really know anything you tell other people they don’t either. It allows you to feel important. You are the Skippy Master!

  94. Unca ChuckNo Gravatar says:

    If you;d rather have the option, then why don’t you? You talk the talk, but don’t walk the walk. Gotcha.

  95. Unca ChuckNo Gravatar says:

    That’s like saying your stellar single A record gives you the onus to shout down anyone who doubts your veracity in supporting Nate the Late. Too bad he’s getting traded soon. Will he be starting wherever he gets traded? No. He’s a 4th OFer at best.
    In other words, a little info and a lot of arrogance is a dangerous thing. Yer shit is hilarious, Bergs.

  96. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Thank you Master Skippy!

  97. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Master Skippy- Tell me about your days hitting a baseball. What makes you qualified to know about baseball? Master Skippy, we all want to know what makes you so superior to the rest of us?

  98. robNo Gravatar says:

    ” bullit- If somebody behind him had a gun many lives could’ve been saved. I doubt he had armor on his head. ”

    imo if i were there without a gun the poor sob would have been one sorry sonovabitch !

    of course having a gun would have made it sooo much easier !

  99. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    It is great to know I got The Master Skippy so riled. You can’t even drop the subject. I got a full day in at work today, now I am home to relax and see Nate is starting?

    Ginn reported to camp with the rookies. He is 10 lbs heavier and says his knee feels great.

  103. Unca ChuckNo Gravatar says:

    Rob, it’s the law of averages. Nate has sucked for 5.5 years. One good day, and Bergs creams himself.
    Wow. Yer surprised Nate starts? Why is that? The only reason he’s out there is because Blanco and Pagan are both ice cold.
    Good to see you trolling away so happily, spitty.

    You started it, spit jr.

    Master Skippy has spoken!

  106. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Master Skippy and Spit Junior. You two should start a band.

    The Skippy Spitty Blues Band!

    Gee, Nate ain’t quite the golden child he was yesterday, was he?
    Back foot slider strikes again.

    Spitty jr’s on skin flute. He plays the tenor version.

  110. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Did Master Skippy get that joke in high school?

  111. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Explain which has ever had a hit in every game? Did you notice Nate starts and we are up 7-1. What is your complaint?

  112. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Giants win! Start Nate, win! Will Master Skippy be upset that the Giants won with Nate in right? He is officially a Nate hater. We are 3-1 with Nate starting in the last 4 games. The only game we lost, Nate did his best by hitting two dingers. He’s the only Giant to do that twice this year.

  113. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    They won despite Nate. Get it? Of course not. Never has so much blather been wasted on a .247 hitter. Smoke that Spit jr.

    This is a football blog BTW. Go brown-nose Flav on his site some more.

    Wow. An official Nate hater? Oooh. I bet the 4th graders are scared of you. What is this, Our Gang?
    Well, we all know yer Spanky . . .

    What are the odds of Goldson showing for Camp?
    Would Baalke rescind the FTag?
    This could be interesting….

  117. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I like the move to sign a former Donatell guy to apply a little leverage to the situation.
    Darcel or Dashon?
    Who would hold the keys if Goldson misses significant Camp time?
    McBath has previous time in the Donatell System and, Dashon has 1 Season, with no Camp time last year.
    I think Goldson is getting some poor advice from his Agent if his intent is to wait for the Season to roll around before he shows up.
    Again, the Team triples your salary and you’re disgruntled about a long term deal not getting done?
    I don’t get it, must be a tough situation to deal with,(TIC).
