Oktoberfest Bier

October is a nice month. Fallish and beautiful in some areas. Mild and not yet winter in others. Northern Hemispherically speaking. And excluding places outside the Tropic of Cancer, east of Lubec, north of Seattle, west of Kamilino Bay, south of Key West, and the entire state of Texas, which is inhabited by cretins who don’t know what year it is, much less what month.

But October has not been nice to the 49ers for many years.

2005: 1-3
2006: 1-3
2007: 0-3
2008: 0-4
2009: 1-2
2010: 2-3

[Voice from the back of the room: Why pick on October? They’ve stunk every month!]

Each of the past six years, off season dreams of quality, playoff bound football have been crushed by October ineptitude. The lone exception was last year, when these dreams were stomped out by an 0 for September, which made the October swoon anti-climactic.

As if to remind 49er fans of this seasonal broken heart, the evil NFL schedule makers have arranged to have the team kick off the month on the road as a 10 point underdog to the Philadelphia Eagles. This is sand in your face disrespect. With a laugh track.

If the 49ers somehow win this game, nobody will even know, because all that will be discussed is “What’s Wrong with the Dream Team Eagles?” Nary a soul will mention, “Hey, How ‘Bout Dem Niners?”

The team is preparing for this epic challenge to their manhood by hanging out in Youngstown, Ohio, re-setting their body clocks and steeping themselves in DeBartolo lore. It is from this berg that the seeds were sown that would become the 49er Empire that ruled the NFL landscape during the final days of the 2nd Millenium.

The upcoming Eagles game should provide a clearer picture of the impact of new 49er head coach Jim Harbaugh. So far, Mr. Harbaugh has managed to fend off his critics by sporting a 2-1 record, despite some of the ugliest offensive football ever seen in 49erland — and we have seen a lot of ugly in recent years. Harbaugh was supposed to redeem the offense, not regress it. Another ugly effort Sunday will get the team walloped, both on the field and in the blogosphere.

A winning effort Sunday, though, would definitely get the woo-woo juices flowing, no matter how the win was achieved. It might even get this scribe’s creative juices flowing, which have been slowed to a yawn lately. There’s a sense that 49er fans are disinclined to get all rah-rah yet again with a new coach and are more or less patiently waiting — for either the annual let down or a verifiably true sign of break through football. Both possibilities are in play this weekend.

    It is from this Berg that the seeds were sewn that say D-line wins championships. Not O-lines. A good O-line definitely helps, but a good D-line is a must. Next on the list is a good QB. Not O-line. A good O-line helps but a Good QB is more important. Next is play calling. Not O-line. A good O-line helps but play calling is more important. Next is debatable, could be O-line, could be CB or LB, but not WR or RB.
    Where I’ve got play calling above, that can be replaced with the word coach, except for one thing, the coach helps put together the roster. So coach is actually above the play caller. The thing is any coach can have a winning record with a good D-line and a good QB if they have a good play caller. Don’t forget, in Berg’s world a pass rushing OLB(elephant) is a D-lineman.

  2. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    We don’t even need to play October. Just put down another 1-3 and bring on November.
    Berger, I think the reason why you’re de-emphasizing the value of the OL is because ours is so god awful. If our OL was more stout you’d think it would play a more important role. That’s the fan in you talking.
    Rate our OL on a scale of 1-10. If you say anything higher than a 3, I’m sending you an autographed life-sized José Guillén poster.

  3. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    There’s a bye week in October, Del, so 0-3 is the worst we can do. 1-2 would be not too bad. Anything better would be cause to book playoff tickets.

  4. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Del- Since my thinking about the O-line started with being a fan of Bill Walsh, and that was his philosophy, then you are right. I learned a lot of my philosophies by studying Walsh. He mostly drafted O-line in middle rounds and Drafted D-line very high. His written philosophy was he can scheme around holes in the offense, but you can’t hide a weakness on defense. I was just parroting Walsh.
    It is my opinion that our O-line is plenty good enough to win with, but when you bunch the formations in today’s modern game you should expect the O-line to look bad.

  5. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    In fact, I think we have a fairly decent O-line. I think we need time for the offense to be more installed and then they will start gelling. We have the potential to be one of the, and maybe THE, best O-line in football. Give it a little time and with good health I am confident we will seed that soon.
    The play calling needs to be better, but I’m fairly sure the offense isn’t even half installed at this point. I believe the play calling will eventually come around. I hope so.

  6. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Here is the modern offense that fits the Bill Walsh philosophy of getting the ball into the hands of the playmakers in space:
    The Spread offense.

    The Spread simply means three or more receivers wide. Nothing else. It has nothing to do with personnel packages, and nothing to do with if the QB is under center or the shot gun. If you see three or more receivers wide it is a spread formation.

    College runs the true spread which requires a running QB as an option. The pros don’t do this because QBs are more valuable in the pros.

    The big advantage of the Spread offense is it backs the safeties out of the box. If they don’t back out of the box and help in coverage, the QB has 3 or more one on one match ups to exploit. A dream situation. The other major advantage of the Spread is it allows for multiple pre-snap hot reads to help neutralize the pass rush. One other advantage is it gives a good RB more space to run because the safeties are out of the box.

    Simply put, the Spread is a ball control offense utilizing methods of spreading the defense so the QB has more options to get the ball in the playmakers hands in space. Typically it is a quick strike, short to medium, passing offense that usually features a high YPC running attack.

  7. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Del- You asked yesterday if I would rather have Bradford or Smith. The answer is Smith. I’ve watched Bradford twice this year and he can not throw an accurate deep ball. He is as accurate as I have seen in the short game but he better start showing something deep if he doesn’t want his short game taken away.
    His OC called plays for the horizontal spread offense last year and he showed it is what he does well. This year they are trying to go vertical and he is struggling.
    He had banged up receivers last year as well as this year. What is the difference, the play calling is not suited for his strengths. Alex is not as accurate as Bradford in the short game but he has a much better array of throws he can effectively make.

  8. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Well, the Niners passed the ball last week. More than they had in the previous 2 games. Harbaugh looks to be installing the offense in chunks. I don’t think the line is as bad as it has looked, because there have been a ton of missed assignments, but there is a lot of getting beat at the point of attack as well.
    THEY say they are close. Great to hear, but not really much to go on. When they show it on the field, I’ll believe it. The Niners will likely come out and try to run. Philly, as all else do, will pack the tackle box. I’m very interested to see how Hunter and Miller do in the backfield. Let’s hope they come up with some misdirection type plays to put these guys on their heels a little.
    Philly is going to come out throwing the ball. They are going to test out sencondary from down 1. They want to stomp the shit out of someone (the Niners) to get the naysayers off their backs, if only for a week. If they lose to the Niners, at home, there will be hell to pay.

  9. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Berger, one problem I see with the spread is the fact that Smith has to be quicker on his reads. Or the pass pro has to improve enough for Smith to go through at least 2 options. The Niners tried a slant last week, and when it wasn’t open, he was sacked. Whether due to bad pass pro or coverage or no options, SOME of these quick plays just don’t work.
    Our WRs don’t seem to understand how to run slants or hot reads. I remember Crabs getting earholed by a couple of Smith’s passes last year because he was running his route but not looking for the ball.

  10. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebers, re-check your schedule and the October calendar. Even with the bye, the Niners still play four games in the month: PHI, TB, DET and CLE. Like I said, they’ll go 1-3.
    Berger, Bradford can’t throw an accurate deep ball? Alex Smith doesn’t even attempt to throw a deep ball. There’s not one GM in the NFL including Baalke that wouldn’t take Bradford > Smith. Your 49er loyalty is clouding your judgement.

  11. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Chuck, the Niners OL isn’t blowing a bunch of assignments, they’re just getting flat-out beat by their man across the LOS. Blown assignments can be rectified. Suckitude cannot.

  12. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    unca- When you pack the box and put 1 receiver wide it is folly to ask the QB to quickly find a 2nd receiver. There isn’t one. It is usually a check down which takes some time to develop, or a TE trying to get thru the traffic in the box. Meanwhile the safeties are lined up in the box allowing multiple blitz options while also being able to cover the TE, so while the QB is looking for a 2nd read he gets sacked. This is football for old timers. Everybody knows how to beat it thee days. Alex is one of the best around at pre-snap reads despite the popular opinion on the blogs. That is why he does well in the Spread formations. He would make the O-line look a lot better if they would call plays to his strengths, kind of like any QB.

  13. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Del- I see you are in love with Bradford like you were with Jose Guillen. Just show you the stats, right? I think by the end of the year Smith will be in high demand.

  14. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Although still on the fence, I am getting close to jumping on the side of declaring Smith a good QB.

  15. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Berger, I’m all for showing 3-4 WR sets. It’s the best way to throw quick passes. I’m not advocating running the jumbo package out there and trying to throw slants out of it.
    One thing I’d like to see more of is VD peeling off his initial blocking duties and going to the flat. Deeper than say, Gore 5 yards away. If the WRs go deep on their routes, the middle should open up. One thing about the Niners is they RARELY throw down the middle.

  16. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    All this of course is predicated on Smith geting more that 2.5 seconds to get the ball out.

  17. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    unca- With the formations we run, asking the receivers to go deep is the same as asking the QB to get sacked.

  18. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    I have heard that the woes of the Oline are due to switching to a zone blocking scheme and the learning curve that has been a challenge to some.
    Lincoln Kennedy is saying the Niner Oline will come together
    they just have to become consistent and be confident of the scheme.

  19. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Well, then they won’t be able to do anything Berger. We might as well have kept Jimmy-Hat. Keeping everything short just lets defenses play 11 guys up. Slants will get blasted fromthe get-go. Bubble screens and smoke routes? This shit hasn’t worked in years. All this does is further choke the run game and the short passing game. They have to keep banging their heads against this, or not get anywhere. Quick passes are a start, but they have to stretch the field at some point. Otherwise it’s 3rd and 8 / 3rd and 12 all day. yes, they need to get more WRs into the plays. I’ve been saying it for 3 years.

  20. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    What has disappointed me with all this blitzing and pressure on the QB, you would think that the Niners could execute a proper screen pass. Somehow they are tipping off that the screen is coming because there seems to be defenders in the middle of the screen and its a doomed play.
    They should try the rollout to the right and have Smith trow back to the left to either VD or Walker sneaking off the line. That was a beautiful play.

  21. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Prediction time. If the Niners win the turnover battle by +2
    they win the game 24-20. Lose in turnover margin and Philly wins 31-24.
    Andy Lee is averaging over 52 yards a punt and netting 46 yds.
    Remarkable! He’ll need to punt it high and far and make DeSean Jackson fair catch the ball or muff it if he takes a chance.
    Make Jackson a non-factor and they also win the game with Maclin likely sitting.

  22. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit, what is this IF crap? Just make a goddamn prediction. No ifs, ands or buts.
    38-17. Green and pain.

  23. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    unca- My point is to use better formations. Using the Spread for ball control is no different than using the run. When the defense comes up to stop the short passes you throw over the top, just like Walsh did with his old pro set, and two wide. Just like San Diego did with Fouts, just like the Redskins did under Gibbs, just like football has been played forever. Only difference is the run was usually used to bring the defense up, except Walsh, and now it is the pass. It is just done a little differently these days but the same psychology still exists as it always has.

  24. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I think when JH looks a film from the last game he’ll see how well we moved the ball in spread formations and we are about to much more of it.
    49ers use more spread and the 49ers win.
    One thing that concerns me greatly about this game is that with a good running QB a Team must run a lot of zone coverage. We haven’t had such good communication so far with zone coverage.
    I take back my prediction. We run more spread because we are behind. Because our defense gets torched, we lose.

  25. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit, its not zone blocking. We have been sucking on the O-line since Larry Allen got old and Jonas Jennings got hurt in 2007. It’s not anything really new. It’s the play calling, it’s individuals who cannot get the concept of pad level through their thick skulls, who cannot move their feet well enough in pass pro, and it’s guys we mistook for better players and drafted too early. It’s BOTH run and pass blocking.

  26. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Just parroting what Lorezo Neal said on the weekly 49er show.


    Then let me get back to you with a prediction if I have remember.

    “If” by David Gates and Bread

  27. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Here’s the guy from Scouts Inc. take on the 49ers.
    BTW, anyone heard from Pat, a.k.a Rufus T. Firefly? I don’t think he’s been around since the start of the season, he hasn’t touched his fantasy team.

  28. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    “I guess I’m leaning toward San Francisco, but I don’t feel confident,” Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc. said this week. “The Rams could finish strong. I can’t see Seattle doing it. And I think Arizona is a six-win team, but they are all kind of six-win teams.”
    Wow. I guess its good to be the best, even in a division of utter crap. One and done in the playoffs?

  29. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The Rams are on the same path as the Niners were last year. If they lose this weekend to the Redskins they’ll be 0-4 with tougher games ahead. They are under a lot of pressure to win because they were the favorites to win the division. Weak as the NFC West being the favorite has become a curse.

  30. robNo Gravatar says:

    ok GUYS
    d-line = 1A
    o-line = 1b

    the difference might just be in the old saying …
    defense wins championships !

  31. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    OK, Rob…
    QB = 1A
    QB = 1B
    QB = 1C
    QB = 1D
    QB = 1E
    Our QB = 4F

  32. barleyfreakNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit you think we’ll score 24 points? I don’t see it (unless Ginn pitches in again). I see a big bad LOSS in Phily despite our time zone acclimatization. I see 13 points, 5 more sacks, and Staley explaining after the game that the two sacks he gave up, one on one, were the result of all 11 guys not converging to block his man. 27-13. Bleh.
    On a plus side, I see Hunter picking up the longest run of the season (34 yards), having 112 yards total rushing and receiving, and getting another touchdown.

  33. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    One and done would be an improvement over the last 7 years. Not that it trlly matters in the grand scheme, but look at what Seattle did last year, and AZ did the year before. AZ was 32 seconds away from winning it all with a fairly mediocre team.

    They changed up their play calling in the playoffs to burn a lot of teams. Everyone ex[ected pass but they ran very well to get to the Super Bowl.

  34. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Expect the worst, hope for the best . . . Thank God my wife’s out of town this weekend. She won’t have to keep telling me to shut the hell up.

  35. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    No worries, Chuck. I’m sure we could find a volunteer or two to tell you to STHU come Sunday. I can see some hands raising already…

  36. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Shit, NoFear already started . . .

  37. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    unca- You are cordially invited to watch the game at my house in Reno so we tell each other to STFU! Laughs and other emotions included for free. I’ll supply the beer. Sierra Nevada Torpedo and Widmer Brothers Drifter Pale Ale. I also have Cascade Hollow sour mash whiskey along with Sin City Canadian blend.
    I was drinking Sin City when Skeebers smartly deleted one of my posts last week-end. I was responding to bullit’s remark of my butt lift that he did not know about. BTW, bullit is invited too. I did not understand his butt lift comment but I did laugh, and then I responded, half tongue in cheek, half serious, and fully in the bag.

  38. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Correction- It was I that did not know about my butt lift, and it was bullit who knew. I really like bullit but that is info I should know about! What did I miss? I’m thnking, don’t let bullit buy you a drink at the bar? Oh well, just show up with bullit and if you see him lifting my butt, please stop him. Maybe I just won’t drink, that might be the best solution.

  39. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Well, you got that right. Philly can run and pass. If we cheat in, they are going to run DSJ deep all day. Spencer better be feeling it. Same with Goldson.
    They have their monents, but they also have their lapses. Its going to come down to the underneath coverage and how well we handle it. They get shit going underneath, then this could look a lot like the KC game last year. Screens and short passes to set up the home runs.

  40. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    My comment was in response to something you posted that got deleted. I don’t remember and it doesn’t matter. I do know you were trying to pick a fight by attacking me for being a Democrat
    for no particular reason.
    Most of the time it’s in fun but never act like your 2 friends V or Spitblood.
    Spitblood who lives in Redding once told me to drive to Cordelia
    and we would duke it out on the side of the road.
    No doubt his favorite movie is “Every Which Way But Loose”
    as he looks like and acts like Clyde. Sorry to insult Clyde in this fashion

  41. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    I asked this question before with little response from everyone.
    I’d like to know why our screen passes are utter failures?
    Something we do tips off the D that it’s coming.
    Make this work and they would ease up on their pass rush and heat on the QB.

  42. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    bullit- Me rail on a Democrat? Imagine that! So are you coming over for the game on Sunday with unca so we can tell him to STFU?

  43. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Berger has never been mistaken for being apolitical. But I do know he has a take on those zombies…

  44. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    That said, I’d still rather have 4 more yrs of Obama than I would 4 more yrs of Alex smith.

  45. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Bullitt, the problem is very easy to figure out. With no respect for our deep passing game, we can’t clear out areas where screen would normally work. Teams ALWAYS play everyone up close to the LOS

  46. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Run the screen behind VD going deep. That should provide a clearout

  47. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Easier said than done. Apparently. Have they run Ginn on a go route yet? All I can think is that Harbaugh doesn’t trust the line enough to risk a deep pass.

  48. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    At this point, if I’m Harbaugh, I would not trust our O-Line to get dress in the morning without tripping on their dicks. Never mind actually blocking. But, oh, no, Joe, you guys don’t suck. Not more than a black hole, anyway.

  49. robNo Gravatar says:

    i just got off the phone with

    omg !

  50. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Sunday morning, 6:30 am. Working on Monday morning’s article downplaying the impact of the butt kicking we will receive today. Article tentatively entitled: “Staley Admits He Had Fingers Crossed!” Go Giants! Go Falcons! Go Redskins!

  51. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    The Alex Dislikers have waited patiently for him to stink up a game. This could be the one, guys. It’s got two ints and a fumble written all over it.

  52. robNo Gravatar says:


    skeebs I think we can win this one ! it depends on how hurt vick is imho !

  53. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    How come there isn’t any bowling on TV today?
    I don’t have anything to watch.

  54. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Last Sunday was the first time Alex had a fourth-quarter comeback win outside the NFC West. I guess when he’s still here in year 14 we can expect another.

  55. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Late breaking news: Gore is active, but Hunter will start.

  56. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Looks like Snyder will start in place of Rachal, too.

  57. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Thanks for the invite but I’ll watch this game from the comfort
    of “my chair”.

    I remember part of what you said last week. You said I sounded like a black guy. How does a black guy sound like(rimshot)?
    Does it really matter?

  58. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Who was the reporter that asked Doug Williams how long he had been a black quarterback? That was classic.

  59. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    I’m predicting Hunter will bust one for 40+ today.
    Good luck young man. Don’t make me look like a fool for hyping you up all the way back at the Senior Bowl.

  60. robNo Gravatar says:

    i think i might have to rethink my pregame prediction !

  61. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:


  62. bigtimNo Gravatar says:

    F yea this was huge 3-1 folks who would have thunk it

  63. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Still speechless.

  64. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Phenomonal win! Dwight Clark just said this is a milestone win that will help the Niners turn the corner.
    Division favorites Rams 0-4. Now root for NY Giants and Falcons.
    WE could be ahead by 2 games at the end of the day.

  65. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Alex played a great game, especially in the second half. I have no qualms saying that. Great win today. I hope the momentum we garnered from today’s win carries out throughout the rest of the season.
    Go Niners!

  66. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebers, you can remain speechless. But I expect some artistic and literary prose from you tomorrow. We just beat the Eagles to go 3-1. There’s a story there. I’d like to read about it tomorrow.

  67. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Kurt Busch wins at Dover? Rob didn’t give me his inside info. My NASCAR fantasy team could use some help. Thanks for nothing, buddy. I need to send your ass on the TARDIS into the future so you can pick me some winners.
    “I want winners!” 🙂

  68. TonyNo Gravatar says:

    half time adjustments…we finally have a coaching staff!!!

  69. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Eagles got sloppy in the seocnd half like we were in the first. The big advance was, we took advantage of a good team’s mistakes, ON THE ROAD. We executed well running and passing against a decent team on the road (for one half at least) for the first time since Mooch walked the earth.
    Huge game. TB is now a big game.

  70. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    We ran more spread today than any other game this year. We ran better as well as passed better.

  71. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Still speechless, but Skeebette assures me I was emitting some sort of energy field that scared the dog.

  72. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Nice to Aldon Smith making an impact.

  73. TonyNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebs…we have 3 dogs …2 inside that are still hiding and one in the yard that wont come out of his dog house….must have been all the screaming 🙂

  74. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    My Eagle Buddy was crying all afternoon about the Maclin reception review that got overturned. Alex almost goes for 300yds and we got the Philly Boo Birds out early and often.
    Let’s assume the Youngstown Time Zone move paid dividends. The guys were sharp late and we got help from Ronnie Brown and Alex Henery.
    Once again, a WIN is a WIN. I’ll take it.

  75. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    NJ- Thanks for the CDs!

  76. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    NP Berger, Enjoy.
    I’m enjoying bragging rights with Mr Philly Fan thankfully. They want Andy Reid and his Defensive Coordinator Fired NOW.
    I’m loving this more than I thought I would. Been a long time coming against them. Glad to finally taste a WIN.

  77. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Lemme know what you think of the NJ49er Party Mix I did.
    I included Neil Youngs’ ‘Barstool Blues’ for your enjoyment. Love that song.

  78. winderNo Gravatar says:

    This one was sweet. I wasn’t sure we had it in us, but we did. Alex played his ass off in the 2nd half and what a great team victory it is.

  79. robNo Gravatar says:

    any happy 9er fans ?

  80. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Philly must also be a tough place to kick FGs. They say Heinz Field
    in Pittsburgh is the worst.
    Andy Lee’s first couple of punts
    were shanks. Philly crosswinds?
    How did the refs miss Jason Avent
    jumping on Brian Jennings and launching himself in front of Akers missed attempt in the first quarter? Did they have their eyes closed?
