Nots Worth Forest

The 49ers got some good news Tuesday, as both Michael Crabtree and Braylon Edwards were cleared to play — Crabtree from the PUP list and Edwards from the Commissioner’s doghouse. Also cleared was Frank Gore’s disrespected heart, as the workhorse running back received a three year contract extension. Last year’s starting left CB, Shawntae Spencer, also returned to practice after sitting out most of training camp with a strained hamstring.

The 49er offensive linemen have also been cleared to play, but through three preseason games thus far have mostly declined to activate themselves, causing some serious angst among the fan base. For purposes of discussion, we will assume these big guys plan to turn on their motors when the games become real. Otherwise, everything we discuss would have to bear the qualifying phrase, “if our O-line can block, that is.”

Following the preseason finale versus San Diego, a whopping 27 guys will have to be pink slipped by the 49ers and every other team in the league — 864 suddenly unemployed players. 256 of them will subsequently land on practice squads throughout the league and the other 608 will be SOL. Those of you filing for unemployment next week should keep your eyes peeled. There might be a former football player standing next to you in the line. If he wants to cut in ahead of you, I’d advise a cheerful okey-dokey as a prudent response.

It might be fun to have a cut down day in the blogopolis each year, too. A modest amount of bloggers would be kicked to the curb just like the football guys. This might give an edge to the arena that it probably doesn’t need, but blood on the highways is always entertaining, unless it’s your own. Unfortunately, the advertisers would not like losing potential suckers and the blogs that don’t have any advertising couldn’t afford to lose any commenters, so this is another idea that is probably pretty much worthless.

I once contemplated starting a business called Worthless Ideas, but was advised that this moniker had already been patented by both the Democratic and Republican parties of America, so I instead changed the title to 49ers Outsider snd here we are.

Starters normally do nothing but make a token appearance in the final preseason game, or no appearance at all, but given the non-existent offseason and the new offensive and defensive systems being installed, not to mention the mostly worthless play in the first three games, I’d expect the 49er starters to play at least the entire first quarter of Thursday’s game. It would be nice to get a little momentum developed going into the season opener against Seattle, even if the momentum was a mirage — or, you guessed it, worthless.

Fort Worthless Skeebexas, signing off.

    Skeebs- I guess that was your form of being metaphrastic when you when from “Worthless Ideas” to “49ers Outsider”.

  2. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Kind of like Bruce Miller going from defense to offense.

  3. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    It is like when a Democrat says he is an Independent to make others think they impartial to help them proselytize for the Democrat religion.

  4. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Or vice versa. Worthless ideas by any name are still worthless.

    The difference is that the Republicans are typically backed by Christians and their religion. The Democrat party is a religion. That is why when a Republican says something about God the Dems have to discount the orator as a wacko. They can’t stand the competition. That is also why they want the word “God” taken off of everything. Everything becomes easier when you get rid of the competition.

  7. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    The only religion in politics is money.

  8. Unca ChuckNo Gravatar says:

    Well, most of the Republicans are scared of science. I mean, the earth is flat, evolution is a myth, and God kills people because the tax base is too tough on the wealthy. Just ask Ms. Bachmann.

  9. Unca ChuckNo Gravatar says:

    She’s part of Bachmann, Turner, Overkill . . .

    Odds for 2012 election: Obama 4/5; Perry 3-1; Romney 5-1. Anyone else would “light up the tote board.”
    I’ll have my $2 to win on Reagan again.

    Are you talking about when Rice left the Niners or the one day that he came back and retired as a Niner?
    When Rice left we had decent production out of TO and Streets
    and Stokes. They actually caught over 200 passes in 2002 between the 3 of them. ”

    i was thinking of both ! imho the three we have now are as good as the group you mentioned !
    T.O. was a talent , but imo edwards and crabs are much better than streets and stokes !
    so yes , i like the three WR’s we have now as much , if not more than those three (as a group)!

    So if the NFL doesn鈥檛 suspend Braylon Edwards, I guess Goodell and Co. are saying it鈥檚 OK for a guy to encourage and cheer on his cousin as he stabs a bouncer. That鈥檚 a helluva role model to our youngsters right there. ”


    i doubt edwards was thrilled with the stabbing and probably would’nt have done the ” encouraging ” had he known it would happen ! wouldn’t you ever cheer on your own cousin to win a fair bar-fight ? oh man , you’re getting almost as bad as nolan !
    sheesh !
    we don’t need a team of choir boys , just top athletes !

    Phil- That鈥檚 right, I was watching live bluegrass music at a party in my friends back yard. It was very good with the whiskey and beer. Unfortunately, I got home in time for the replay on NFL Network, which made me drink more whiskey and beer.”

    berger , and the unfortunate part is ???

    and just to join in and let you all know , my man oops i mean girl for president , is sarah !

  13. robNo Gravatar says:

    good news on crabs and braylon !
    gore signing is also good news !
    i was never too concerned about frank’s situation , knowing him !
    you kind of had to know he just wanted his fair share of the new money available and a fair deal going into the later part of his career ! i’m not so sure you should have lumped him in with the whole “disrespect” crowd tho !
    i guess you kind of disrespected him there !

    Looks like nobody has any worthless ideas to offer today.

  15. robNo Gravatar says:

    last night was hoppin !

  16. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    I should have let it ride.

  17. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    “Let It Ride” is one of my favorite all-time movies. It’s about a guy (Richard Dreyfuss) who has one of those days at the track that all degenerate gamblers like myself dream about. Everything goes his way, and he can’t lose. He’s the polar opposite of Alex Smith. Check it out sometime. I give it a big two thumbs up — Alex Smith’s ass.

  18. winderNo Gravatar says:

    If worthless ideas were worth money, I would be a rich man.
    skeebs, maybe just a “kicked to the curb” honorary mention might be sufficient.

    The 49er Total Access Show is being aired. Watched this week’s segment. At baout the 8:00 mark is a panel discussion with Bob Fouts,Lon Simmons, Wayne Waker, Don Klein and Joe Starkey hosted by Ted Robinson.
    Really awesome stuff bringing back great memories. Topic is unhearlded 49ers. They have footage of Paul Hofer! Roaring Back himself! This is must see and it was great to see Lon Simmons and Wayne Walker who were the best Niner announcers bar none.
