Seahawks 43, 49ers 16

The 49ers rolled up nearly 500 yards of offense in Seattle on Sunday and … got beat by four touchdowns!

If you throw out the losing part, and the 98 yard pick six by Bobby Wagner, and the fumble at the Seattle two yard line by Jeff Wilson, and the muffed punt by Richie James, the team would have been in a nail-biter.

It was an impressive day for QB Nick Mullens, give or take the stuff above. He threw for 414 yards compared to Seattle QB Russell Wilson, who only put up 178 yards. Of course, Wilson threw for four TDs, none of which went the other way, but tut, tut.

It wasn’t all good news, though. The loss buried the team in the NFC West cellar, where they will remain, giving them four straight last place finishes in the division and a fourth straight year of double digit losses. Still, after consulting with Rob !!!, I can confidently predict that next year the Niners will be great!

The losing seems to be wearing on HC Kyle Shanahan, who picked up a fifteen yard unsportmanlike penalty in the fourth quarter for screaming, “Fuck You!” at line judge Walt Coleman. Coleman reportedly mumbled back at Kyle that perhaps he should direct his epithets at the guy he sees in the mirror each morning.

For you history buffs, the 49ers five takeaways through 12 games are the fewest by any team since 1940. This probably has something to do with being 2-10 instead of a more robust 3-9 or even 4-8.

The team now slinks home after its eighth consecutive whipping in Seattle and can look forward to three straight home games where they will be wildly cheered by two of Chuck’s drunken friends and a couple of homeless guys who crawled into the stadium through a crack in the foundation. Those games are against the red hot Broncos, Seattle again, and the NFC North leading Bears. So maybe “look forward to” is a bit euphemistic. The final game is in Los Angeles against the Rams, who may or may not have anything to play for.

All in all, another spellbinding finish to another mind boggling season is just around the corner. Is 2-14 possible? Most definitely.

    RIP President George H.W. Bush

    Well, one thing you have to admit is we don’t disappoint. Just when you think it can’t get any worse we just muff a punt, lose a crucial fumble or just play really sloppy football. Not only can we not close out a game we just can’t seem to play clean football. It’s not hard to be a 49er fan but it is hard to sit there and watch the calamity of our games.

  3. NoFearNo Gravatar says:

    It’s a tough call, I know, but who was better, Wagner or Sherman?

    Given Rodgers’ reprising the role of Elway in Denver to open the way for Shanahan senior at the expense of Dan Reeves, can it be long before Mullens makes his case to get rid of Shanahan public?

  4. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Behind the Shanny meltdown:

    “Kyle Shanahan explained what upset him before unsportsmanlike conduct. He said Fred Warner’s shoe came off, and Russell Wilson threw it further behind line of scrimmage. Warner grabbed shoe and Seahawks went hurry-up. Elijah Lee tried to replace him but was called for offside.”

  5. NoFearNo Gravatar says:

    If that were true, he knew they were gonna get flagged for something there, so why the FU to the zebra calling what he was forced to call?

    Sounds like RW took advantage of the situation. You know, like what happens in a football game. Shanahan saw it develop but decided against burning a TO to rectify. Maybe the FU WAS intended for the guy in the mirror for his endless screw ups.

    And speaking of piss poor leadership, doesn’t that make it a little difficult to chew out a player for getting in a zebra’s face now?

  6. NoFearNo Gravatar says:

    ol’ butt fumble to the rescue. This should be good. If Alex has any sense he will have played his last snap in the NFL.

  7. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    SF-Troop in full bloom NoFear.
    I’ve started a pool with several of my NYJ Buddies, relative to the swap of Bowles for McCarthy.
    Does it happen before the end of the regular season, before the SB or, after the SB?
    Gotta wonder if Arians might think twice about rescinding his comments about Cleveland now too?

    The NFL is nothing but a Fantasy Football Reality Series anymore.

  8. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Colt McCoy broke his leg tonight in the game against the Egos.
    He follows Alex Smith’s injury which was also a broken leg.
    The game was close until the Deadskins had to insert Mark Sanchez as their QB. It went from a one point game to a 15 point lead.

    Why is Sanchez still in the league?

  9. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Because he doesn’t kneel for the Anthem?

  10. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bakkentom/Bullit –
    An early suggestion for my RG search –
    Oklahoma RT Cody Ford – 6′-4″ / 310 –
    Have seen my favorite compliment associated with his game. NASTY 😀
    Be nice if he makes it to RD2 or, if Lynch can position himself with some deals, to move around the Board a bit.

    ‘Scouts who have been through Oklahoma say that Ford is an outstanding athlete for his size. He has good knee bend with quick feet and excellent size. Ford has the skill set to handle fast interior rushers with the size to take on the heavy powerful tackles. Ford does a nice job of keeping his feet moving and his hands engaged to sustain his blocks. Ford is worthy of going in the 20s of the 2019 NFL Draft and could be one of the better guards in the league during his pro career’.

  11. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    This site has him at 338lbs – Either way, someone to watch if/when a Combine invite comes his way –

  12. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Thanks for the research on Ford.

    Adam Peters formerly of the Denver Broncos. He must know OL well, I assume he was involved in the drafting of Ryan Clady.

    Man we need help in IOL pass pro. LAR tore us up. Richburg has been playing injured from game 4 on. I just feel we need to move on from him when we start competing for playoffs.

    Billy Price grabbed at #20. OZ capable at OG or C. If we trade down Ford could be our Price.

  13. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    This kid just declared for the Draft also – He could be a ‘Bosa Light-type’ candidate?
    Jordan Brailford, DE/OLB, Oklahoma State

    Jordan figures to be a second-day selection as a 3-4 rush linebacker. He’s coming off a big year with 16 tackles for loss and nine sacks, but enters a difficult draft class that will have tons of competition in the front seven.

    A name to keep an eye on as things come along through Bowl Games etc.

    Read that several guys are already skipping Bowl games to protect themselves from potential injuries.
    Greedy Williams and Ed Oliver among them.

    Thus far, Quinnen Williams appears to be the real deal for me.
    Is he 1st overall Pick material? I sure couldn’t say, or I’d be earning a living in someones’ FO 😀
    But…he looks like a true game wrecker ala Aaron Donald to me.

    Bowl games are a good opportunity to do some armchair Scouting at least while we wait the measureables from the Combine.

  14. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    There doesn’t appear to be a solid can’t miss CB or WR in this Class.
    Appears to be chock full of Front 7 guys though.
    Might be an option for Lynch to entertain a top DB option in FA?
    Not going to surprise me one bit (if Saleh remains) if Earl Thomas isn’t on his radar.
    That entire Legion of Boom sh!t worked because he knew where to put everybody in front of him.

    He might be worth an investment to mentor some younger guys who Lynch might find on the cheap?

    I’m leaning heavily in favor of LSU LB Devin White thus far. Again, where is he going to be slotted? If he is targeted, Lynch needs to position himself correctly and not reach/overspend.
    Tons of data and Scouting needed to answer those questions.

  15. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    For what it’s worth at this point…Really dirty numbers-wise.

    Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State
    Height: 6-3 / 265
    Projected 40 Time: 4.75

    Jordan Brailford, DE/OLB, Oklahoma State
    Height: 6-3 / 250
    Projected 40 Time: 4.68

    I’ll be crunching this sort of stuff all Winter 😀
    For these guys, it’s movement/strength and production stuff I want to see, along with overall final games played/stats.

  16. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Ford vs Price. Price interviewed very well, Ford seems like a dumb jock? Not a 1st Rd type? Take later maybe. Niner OL Coaching Staff needs to select the OZ capable. They must know the brain-athlete combo needed.

  17. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bakkentom I’ll be watching ND Center Sam Mustipher pretty closely as Bowl season begins.
    Obviously a former Linemate of McGlinchey and, very well Coached.
    See where these guys go come Combines time.

  18. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Most interior linemen go after RD1.
    OT’s always get the most attention, for obvious reasons.
    Guys like Ford intrigue me, because some College OT’s just can’t handle elite DEs at the NFL level and, get kicked inside.

  19. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Draft list from Pro Football Focus
    Look for interior linemen from Wisconsin or Iowa to draft on Day 2

  20. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Packers are looking at hiring offensive minded coach, possibly Lincoln Riley from Oklahoma. One name on the list is Jim Harbaugh

  21. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Here’s another one: “49ers long snapper Kyle Nelson has been suspended for the next 10 weeks of the regular season.”

    Ten weeks is pretty long for first (?) offense. Aggravated domestic abuse?

  22. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Performance enhancing drugs. That’s usually a two or four week deal, IIRC. Strange.

  23. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “The NFL previously suspended Kyle Nelson (before his time with the 49ers) for violating the same policy on performance-enhancing substances. As a repeat offender, he received a 10-game suspension this time.”

    That clears that up. Now the question is what does a long snapper need with PEDS?

  24. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Well, Skeebs, considering how much trouble Weston Richburg has had snapping the damned ball this year, maybe we should get him some, too. :/

  25. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit I was out on the College fringe myself, with your guy Tom Herman and, PJ Fleck, prior to us hiring Chip Kelly.
    It’s a reach to pull College Coaches into the Pros of course.
    Harbaugh at least had NFL playing experience, along with a high profile gig at Stanford.
    With Riley being well connected to Mayfield, his price tag just went up, if GB is seriously involved.

    NYJ with Darnold, will be another team with similar concerns too, I’m sure.
    Ironically, Herman is an OH guy himself. PJ is from IL, Riley from TX.
    If I were the NYJ, McCarthy could work for Darnold or, I’d make a serious inquiry to John DeFilippo in MN, who worked well with Wentz. DeFilippo, again ironically, is an OH native.

  26. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    In a trade down scenario where a QB is coveted you can still get value later in first round/second round. Chase Winovich played for Harbaugh and is the poor man’s Bosa. Worth a look?

  27. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Five guys to watch who played for Texas this year

    LJ Humphery WR 6’5″ 220 lbs JR 3rd round if he enters draft

    Charles Omenihu DE 6″4″ 270 1st Round Big 12 Defensive Player of Year

    Colin Johnson WR 6’6″ 225 lbs 4th/5th round

    Gary Johnson LB 6’2″ 230 lbs 3rd/5th round sideline to sideline rannge and big hitter He is a better LB than last year’s Malik Jefferson

    Chris Nelson 6’1″ 305 lbs DT/NT 5th round Strong prescence in middle that will collapse the Oline and shows up in opponents backfield.
    Shades of Casey Hampton.

    Believe these guys will make a NFL roster and contribute. Great value in day 2 and 3 of draft.

    I did not include CB Kris Boyd who is highly touted. He makes good plays and then gets burned. Rated as a second round pick he could dissappoint although he covered the opponents best receiver on a weekly basis. Just too inconsistent and far from being a shutdown corner.

  28. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    DeShaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes got good deal for their original teams a couple drafts ago.

    With no top line QB’s no trade downs may be offered where we pick at top of 1st. Just have to settle for our young Suh or Myles Garrett.

  29. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    There are at least 3 QB needy teams. Giants, Deadskins and Jags.

    Alex Smith’s injury might be career ending.

    If QB Justin Herbert does a Mitch Trubiski or if a team is dead set on getting Bosa Lynch might be in a position to deal and still get some help.

  30. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bullet I’m with you regarding finding value.
    If no Trade-downs are offered, it comes to most talented position player of need.
    Scouting is paramount, from a potential bust perspective for me.
    Quinnen Williams still tops my Wish List right now.
    A B.Y. potential candidate IMO.

  31. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    My reasoning is….
    Haley,Joe,Jerry and Ronnie weren’t top 5 guys either.

  32. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    From Sac Bee

    “New long snapper found — With Kyle Nelson serving a 10-game suspension for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing substance policy, the team added Colin Holba, a sixth-round pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2017 who wound up playing seven games for the Jacksonville Jaguars last season.
    Holba was wearing No. 40 on the practice field, though his addition to the roster hasn’t been made official.”

  33. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    a WR that could be a steal in the second round, Denzel Mims from Baylor

  34. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Alex Smith had surgery to repair his broken leg and now is fighting a serious leg infection and is far from being out of danger.
    Some serious stuff that if it goes south it can cost him a limb.

  35. winderNo Gravatar says:

    Can you imagine the legal ramifications for the doctor and hospital. I do hope the best for Alex he’s a good guy and has helped lots of people with his financial success.
