The Future, The Past, The Guillotine

The 2012 Offseason is now open for business and the wonderful players on the 2011 49er team are no longer Our Boys, but our chess pawns. Sorry, guys. It’s a cruel business. Unless you’re a star, which we wish you all were, but some of you ain’t.

The 2011 players packed up Tuesday and either went home or flew to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl. Nineteen of them were in the last year of their contracts and will either be resigned or have their name plates removed from the 4949 Centennial Blvd. locker room.

We’ll get this party off on a cheery note by mentioning that one of these nineteen FAs is named Moran Norris. How many of you think this fellow will be coming back next year? Noooooooooooobody!!!

Matt Maiocco has a complete list of our FAs and the likelihood of their return posted here.

All the Head Coaching vacancies have been filled with He’s No Harbaugh gents, so the 49er staff of coaches will return intact for 2012. This is good news. A year of stability beckons. It beckoned in 2010, too, but the guys with the Beckoners were named Mike Singletary and Jimmy Raye. I will not disturb their remains with any pithy observations, but those two Beckon wielders turned stability into a vice, not a virtue. We expect much better beckonations from Jim Harbaugh and his staff.

Some of you may not be in the mood to slide blissfully into the future just yet, which is understandable. Sunday’s NFC Title game loss was a bitter pill to swallow. A crime against our natures. Someone has to pay for that, right? Justice must be served. Kyle Williams has been an easy choice for blame from fans at large, but the blogopolis is much more discerning. IT’S THE QB’S FAULT!

It’s a simple rule of thumb, whence ever thumbs originate, that every loss is the QB’s fault. Unless your QB has won a Super Bowl. Everything used to be Aaron Rodgers’ fault, but now he can throw passes high, wide, and ugly in a Divisional playoff game and it isn’t his fault that the team loses. All Giants losses were once the fault of Eli Manning. One helmet catch later, he’s acquired lasting immunity from any further Giant defeats. Ditto for Ben Roethlisberger. Tom Brady is an interesting case, in that the Patriots won SBs during his Game Manager era, but have not won any since he became elite.

All recent Super Bowls have been won by elite QBs. But most QBs become elite because they won a SB. So, Mr. Alex Smith, it would behoove you to win a SB. Otherwise, everything will always be your fault. Keep this in mind during next year’s NFC Title game. When you’ve guided the team to a fourth quarter lead, have the punter kick it out of bounds. Eliteness will be yours and teflon will adorn your body forever.

    Eli had a losing record this year until his WRs got healthy. Now he is in the SB. Only Romo did not make the play-offs with a really good WR corps. Modern NFL rules are designed for passing. The spread formations along with good WRs make a difference.

  2. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    It’s still Smith’s fault.

  3. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I think you forgot about the Bucs. They don’t have a coach. PFT thinks it will be Shiano from Rutgers.

  4. bigjon49erNo Gravatar says:

    Let’s just go for it! If Peyton can play lets get him and his 2 wideouts and win a Super bowl. Alex can sit at a reduced price in case Peyton gets hurt or elect to leave. It’s a “everybody wins”. And the best part is we get to kick everybody’s ass.

  5. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Shiano is finalizing his contract with the Bucs this morning. But I did forget about them. It’s Smith’s fault.

  6. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    …President Obama announced this morning that former 49ers’ quarterback Alex Smith will be sent to Iran. Obama was quoted as saying he has it on good authority that “Smith is the only man who can overthrow the whole Armored Dinner Jacket Regime.”


  7. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    I don’t know. If Obama sent over his dream team of Flacco, Sanchez and Alex Smith…. Armored Dinner Jacket would be a distant memory. He wouldn’t stand a chance. He’d try to talk ’em in circles and they’d overthrow him again, and again, and again.

  8. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Think about this – Crabtree is overpaid, but his production is tied to Alex Smith so you can’t make a good case to Crabtree’s agent to reduce Crabtree. He’s done with his guaranteed money so you can dump him at anytime. I do not believe, because of Crabtree’s initial holdout, production and his huge contract, that Crabtree is tradeable. But I do think you could bring in a qb like a Matt Flynn or a Peyton Manning and ask Crabtree to pay part of their contract. I think Crabtree’s fair martket value is 2.5 million dollars per year. You aren’t going to get him to play for that, but that’s the mark you’re shooting for. If you had to pay Flynn 8 million per year, or Manning 10 million per year, you could say to Crabtree, “We’re bringing in a great quarterback and we need to reduce you to do so. If you won’t reduce, we need to cut you.”
    Drafting a million great receivers without a quarterback is the cart before the horse. You bring a great quarterback first if you want to build a passing attack. Then you bring in the wide receivers. I think the 49ers have known this all along.

  9. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    If you take Crabtree from 6 down to 2.5 million per year, tear up Crabtree’s contract and give him more guaranteed money, AND you bring in an actual quarterback who can throw the ball to him, like Flynn or Manning, 3.5 of Crabtree’s contract goes toward the new qb’s contract. And if you go after Matt Flynn, you don’t have to use any draft choices.
    Paying Manning or Flynn 10 million per year is really paying then 6.5 million per year if you can reduce Crabtree down 3.5 (from 6 to 2.5) by selling Crabtree and his agent a new quarterback. The leverage is if you dump Crabtree he won’t find a better situation in the NFL.
    If you offered Crabtree 2.5 million per year and a new contract with new guaranteed money, with a good quarterback, Crabtree’s agent would be smart enough to take it. Crabtree’s agent is no dummy. Contracts are all about leverage, and smart organizations build and understand leverage when negotiating.

  10. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Gee, Albert, this is pretty much the same comment made twice and you made it yesterday and the day before. We sort of like fresh material here. I mean, who wants to watch reruns every day?

  11. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Crabtree’s contract, coupled with bringing in a new quarterback, and the angle that the 49ers can approach to reduce Crabtree is brand new material. It just bothers you because it makes Alex Smith an afterthought, and nobody protects Alex Smith like Skeebers. Do you play guard or tackle? Right now, you’re Chilo Rachal.

  12. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    It was new material yesterday, Albert. Today, it’s propaganda. Like your repetitive Flynn posts.

  13. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    “All recent Super Bowls have been won by elite QBs. But most QBs become elite because they won a SB. So, Mr. Alex Smith, it would behoove you to win a SB.

    So what’s this? I know. It’s your blog so you can quote mein kampf if you’d like. But don’t think you’re above the hypocrisy.

  14. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Free agency begins March 13th. I bet the entire organization, from top to bottom, goes on a month-long vacation. I bet Baalke talks with agents while on his surfboard in Maui. Bastard.

  15. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    I just went over to Chuck’s blog. Instead of a “Stop Censorship” banner, he needs one that reads, “Warning: Site causes extreme nar ….. colepsy.”

  16. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah, Eli, what’s wrong with you? Can’t field the best defense and best kickers in the game? Still going to your *second* SB? What a maroon!
    Ever seen Eli throw a deep out? The best in the business, bar none. Don’t even tell me Alex can’t throw that because of his receivers…

  17. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    All can see Spitty morphing back to hater troll mode.That’s what bandwagon guys do.
    Can’t seem to get an answer on his GUARANTEE.
    That’s what Mr Know It All knows.
    Not much especially football.
    Fanboy sees Matt Flyn have one good game and he’s going tp break the bank to sign him. Similar to Kolb last year and we all know how that worked out.

  18. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Gee, RT, I guess that explains why Jeff George has all those SB trophies and Montana don’t have any. I bet Nate Davis can make those throws, too.

  19. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    RT –
    You and I know that the very thing that makes a blog successful is opposing view points. Unca Chuck can’t handle it, and this is why Chuck’s blog is about as much fun to read as the directions to your own “do it yourself” prostate exam. Skeebers, though, has the skill to handle a dissenting voice because he knows it’s necessary.

  20. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    What makes you think I’m a troll?

  21. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Peyton looks even more done in Indy.

  22. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    To me, it’s curious as to why the owner would even respond to Peyton Manning’s claim that the training facilities are like “walking on egg shells.” Why wouldn’t the owner just make a “No comment,” unless he’s prepping his fan base for Peyton’s departure. It’s also curious that the owner would say, “If he’s healthy, he stays,” when every sign points to Peyton leaving. Think about this – The Colts just signed a defensive coordinator and rookie head coach to handle Luck and Manning on the sidelines? Yeah, why not bring in Mike Singletary to coordinate the PR? Good luck with all that. I agree with Grump, Peyton’s gone. Where’s he go? Is he healthy? Will he play three more years? Three years of Peyton training Colin Kaepernick? Now that’s something to write home about. Of course, though, Skeebers and Reno would rather have Alex Smith ….
    Peyton and Eli saw Colin Kaepernick at some qb camp (might have been a Manning camp), and they said they were amazed with Kaep’s gun. If Kaep got to know Peyton there, and they already have repoire, I’d spend a little more to bring in Peyton because Peyton can be fickle with who he teaches.

  23. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I kept hearing Doug Gotlieb say we offered Alex Smith a two year contract on his radio show today. Does anybody know anything about this?

  24. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Well played. The Cahoots Troll. A new one…

  25. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    No, Spitty. It’s not about ‘handling’ it. That’s your area of expertise. I can only take so much drivel from a life-sucking troll like you.
    You are worse than V. A waste of time to deal with and respond to.
    You won’t be missed. People have differing viewpoints. You are 99.99% blather all the time.

  26. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Only a troll (or idiot) says Ginn is the best option at WR.
    Which is it? Oh, yeah. Both.

  27. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    I thought you were leaving….

  28. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Are you asking for the meaning of your existence? Rare footage of you THE TROLL in action

    Consider yourself enlightened
    Pinata Boy

  29. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The Irsays have always been wacky owners just like the Bidwells.
    Now with Al Davis gone someone had to fill the void as the wacky owner. Jim Irsay is reverting back to the days when the Colts snuck out of Baltimore in the middle of the night. He is basically cutting all ties that made his team successful and apprently letting his personal ego drive his decisions.
    He get’s my vote for crazy owner followed closely by Steven Ross in Miami whose GM ( the guy who asked Dez Bryant if his mom was a hooker) is deciding if they’re running a 4-3 or 3-4 defense. Guess he forgot they just hired a head coach.

  30. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    This from Eric Branch of the SFC:

    Smith didn’t ignore his wideouts in the playoffs, but he did fail to connect with them. He completed 8 of 29 passes for 51 yards and had a 51.1 rating when targeting wide receivers. He completed 28 of 37 passes for 444 yards and had a 151.2 rating when throwing to tight ends and running backs.

    The problem with the WR corps is an excuse for the QB or a reality? Haters discuss. People dealing in reality already understand. The numbers posted above are real numbers.

  31. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    When your TE is the fastest guy on the field, well, that’s what happens. People b itch about Smith not throwing deep balls, but VD caught a bunch of them.
    Crabs still doesn’t understand how to be a WR. He never gets his head around fast enough to be a hot-read option. And there’s no one else on the team who’s even remotely NFL caliber. Ziggy would be an upgrade at this point.

  32. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Gee, Spitty. What a suck-up.
    Dipshit’s last stand?

  33. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Funny…. the wide receivers didn’t seem to be a problem after the Saints’ game. You guys are gonna excuse yourself all the way through the next decade without a Super Bowl. Excuses, excuses.
    Bullit – Irsay’s a crazy owner? Yeah, crazy like a fox. He kept Caldwell for a year longer than he should have to bury that team in mediocrity. He didn’t fire Caldwell and bring in an interim guy to get a few spirit Jim Tomsula wins and take the Colts out of the Luck sweepstakes. He made the right move dumping Polian and starting fresh with a younger guy with energy.
    Now he’s created a market for Peyton, getting Colts’ fans used to the idea of Peyton leaving. He’s also made it clear one option is to keep Peyton. That’s the same thing the Eagles did with Kolb. Why do that? To raise the price. “Meet our terms or he stays.”
    So far, Irsay has made all the right moves.
    But if it comes down to a choice between Peyton or Flynn, Flynn is the better option because Flynn won’t cost you draft choices, Flynn isn’t one shove from traction, and Flynn has a decade or two of football ahead of him – but the big advantage is, Flynn won’t cost you draft choices.

    Just two days ago, Chuck threatened to leave this blog because he couldn’t stand me. However, once he realized he was forcing himself to converse with the five nitwits (Dennis not included), on his blog, he realized he had written his own death sentence. I don’t blame you, Chuck. Your blog is boring. No other word for it.

  36. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    You just keep showing off that you’re a HATER TROLL.
    Calling you a moron is an insult to morons. Maybe moron toejam
    is more appropiate.

    Only a idiot troll would praise a Division Champion who went from a playoff team to worst team in the league. Only a clueless fool like yourself could praise a team for tanking a season. You think that losing games is a lost art.
    They hired a GM with less experience than Trent Baalke
    The Head Coach they hired has never been a head coach on any level and has been a DC in the NFL for one year.
    Brilliant!!! Only an imbecile such as yourself would be impressed.
    Living up to your TROLL CODE Pinata Boy.

  37. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit – that was a great read. Lol.

  38. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    I often disagree with Chuck but I respect him and welcome his takes.
    Can’t make the same statement about you Spitty.

  39. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    That’s because you and Chuck cut and paste the 49er website and can’t think for yourself.

  40. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:


  41. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    I don’t make any excuses for being a well read person and absorbing info from as many sources as possible.
    You on the other hand just make stuff up.
    So tell me idiot troll what info you have first hand? Do you attend
    Niner practices, do they let you in the locker room? Do you talk to the players one on one?
    Everything you know is either seen on TV, heard on the radio
    or read on the web, newspaper or magazine.

    Get a clue Pinata Boy. Enjoy your constant diet of crow.

  42. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Here’s something else to think about that’s new and fresh. I know my ole’ boy, Skeebers, likes new and fresh material.
    If I was the 49ers, I wouldn’t offer a single draft choice THIS YEAR for Peyton Manning. It doesn’t matter what the greatest doctor in the history of doctors says about Manning’s neck. All it takes is one good shove and Manning could be done. I’d have compensation in terms of picks designed to fall after each season to minimize risk and loss. Once a draft choice is gone, it’s gone. You give the Colts a first rounder this year, Manning gets hurt in the second game, that first rounder is gone. You’d need to convince Irsay and his new GM, but it makes sense.
    In addition, that would allow the 49ers to go out and find Manning two new wide receivers in the first and second rounds.

  43. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The Niners lost one of their coaches Bobby Engram who left to go to Pitt as an assistant.
    Engram was listed as an offensive assistant who probably was involved with their receivers
    so maybe they’ll bring somebody better to help.

    Now I heard this on the radio and also researched this on the web.
    I’m sure the 49ers called Spitty to inform him of the move. We all know all his info is first hand knowledge where he either talks to the source or sees it with his own eyes before he posts. After all Spitty is all about integrity
    and truth and that’s why he’s so respected. Sorry about that!

  44. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    And it’s not like Irsay and his GM are ready for all those new picks anyway. It’s a new GM, new coach. Baalke needs to be a salesman here. He needs to say, “We’ll give you picks next year, based on playing time alone… we have an awesome offensive line full of first rounders… they’re close to being the best in the business. Peyton, if he’s truly healthy, will get his playing time.” Then, next year, based on that playing time, we’ll compensate you with a plan we’ve already worked out. If he plays all year, we’ll give you a first round pick. And we’ll do it the next year as well. If he plays half a year, we’ll give you a third round pick… and so on. If Peyton retires after half a year, we give you a fifth round pick, and that’s the way it should be.”

  45. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    “And Irsay, we play on grass which four out of five dentist agree is softer on the neck. AND Irsay, your GM isn’t ready for all those picks. They’ll go wasted. Give him and his head coach a little time to get plan in order.”

  46. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    From everything I’m reading (which isn’t a whole lot), Manning is simply going to be cut, not traded – to avoid paying him a $28 mil bonus. He can then sign with anybody he wants.

  47. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    From what I’ve read, the Colts have the option to tear-up Manning’s contract and franchise tag him. I don’t know that for sure, but I’m pretty sure…

  48. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Face it, you don’t know shit, dingle. The Colts aren’t going to trade him. He’s either signed or cut. And the way it’s shaking out, he’ll be cut. So, the Niners aren’t going to offer the Colts anything.
    And, SFB, here’s what I posted on Jan 14th:
    unca_chuck says:
    January 14, 2012 at 10:42 pm
    “. . . It has been a LOOOONG time that this team has come through this well in crunch time.

    That being said, Crabtree needs to understand what the f**k is going on. This is the playoffs. You CANNOT drop drive-killing passes like that. Those 3 drops were bad bad bad.”
    I know you read my blog religiously, so you must have missed this.
    Hey, I’m here to help.

  49. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    “What exactly do you guys see when Smith overthrows/underthrows or otherwise misses/fails to find, his open receivers?”
    Same thing we see when other QBs do it. What exactly do you see when you watch a 49er game? Nothing but something you can bitch about. No wonder you had nothing to say all year.

  50. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    No Fear…. I don’t like you, but let’s kick their asses…. LMAO!

  51. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Manning COULD renegotiate his contract, but why would he? To stick around on a team that:
    a) Has just been gutted
    b) Holds the key to the Andrew Luck
    c) Would rather avoid paying Manning $35 mill, and their brand new #1 draft pick QB?
    Yeah, there’s a rookie cap. But $35 mill for a guy who isn’t healthy, and offers no assurances that he will EVER be healthy enough to play again.
    Manning has already said he won’t renegotiate. Irsay can either sign him or cut him. That’s it, skippy.

  52. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebers – Your homework assignment is to define the word “frequency.” As in, what’s the frequency of an Alex Smith overthrow or missed target when thrown past ten yards compared to any other quarterback in the NFL? It’s off the charts. Frequency, Skeebers, frequency.

  53. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    The Colts and Manning will find a way to do the right thing by each other. They have both made a boat load of money together and won a Super Bowl together. It’s not in the Colts best interest to let Manning walk without compensation. The Colts will be compensated, and Manning will be gone.

  54. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    The Colts just paid Peyton Manning 23 million dollars to sit on the bench an entire year. 23 million to do nothing. But Unca, in his cloudy stupidity, thinks after paying Peyton 23 million to sit on the bench, that Irsay is now just going to cut him. Why not cut Peyton last year when it was evident the Colts would get either the first or second pick in Luck or Robert Griffin the III? Why not cut him last year and save 23 million? If you’re gonna get nothing for him, why continue to pay him? This is why Unca Chuck will always, always be my bitch. ‘Cause he can’t think for himself.

  55. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    They paid that money before he was injured. Cutting him wouldn’t have recouped it.

  56. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Spitty is a Colts Insider.
    He has direct communication to Jim Irsay and Rob Lowe.
    He scooped everyone with his stone cold lock that Jeff Fusher would be their next head coach.
    Stone Cold Lock he said. OOOOPS!!!!!

    You can’t doubt the valuable resource known as Spitty. He’s usually correct at least 2 times out of 100. And that’s an improvement over last year.

  57. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    I always knew nuts travelled in pairs. Good to see you back.
    NoFear, did the Niners improve this year? Did Smith improve markedly this year?
    Do you understand that the Niners have a pretty good run game?
    So, the Niners should have thrown the ball heavily when they got the lead this year? Like Martz did? Right. Why didn’t Green bay run the ball? Or New Orleans? because they CAN’T. Especially against strong defensive teams. Do you think they would like to be able to run? How far did GB and NO get without any kind of run game?
    The deal is, look at the stats from this year to last. The yardage is about the same. Rushing yards were up a little this year. Passing yards were down a little. Was the offense overall more effective? Gee, I don’t know. What’s better? 6-10 or 14-4? Uhhh, it’s Smith’s fault! Brilliant.
    What have I been saying for 4.5 years now? When Nolan lost the team during the 8 game losing streak in that infamous 2007 season? It’s the coaching, stupid.

  58. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebers – You pay him 23 million to sit on the bench, then not get any compensation for it? Not likely.

  59. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit – I did tell you that Jim Caldwell would be fired, you laughed when he wasn’t immediately after the season ended, then he did get fired. Opps. The timing for Fisher wasn’t right, and now, come to think of it, not going with a retread was smart on Irsay’s behalf. Retreads rarely work.

  60. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Wow, Spitty thinks the Colts signed Manning to a 5 year/$90 million contract last July KNOWING he was going to miss the 2011 season. Uh, Manning was paid $16 million this last season.
    Run Forrest run!

  61. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Albert, you don’t seem to get it. The Colts have a contract with Manning that requires them to pay him $28 mil by March 8. They either pay him or cut him. If they pay him, that’s 23 + 28 of wasted money. They’ve lost the 23, but they don’t have to lose another 28.

  62. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    If we got Peyton, and he won a Super Bowl, that would be awesome.
    It would also require about 35 things to fall into line just right. So far, the Colts moving him out, number one, hasn’t happened. All the other stuff – contractual, physical, etc. – is even more of a hurdle.
    Alex of 2012 is a much better prospect than Alex was a year ago – but, yeah, I’d still like to upgrade. IF we could do it without breaking the salary cap, or causing team dissension, or losing fourteen draft choices. That goes for anyone else that was to become available. I just cannot see much chance we can pull this off. Its nice to dream, but betting on longshots is bad for your bank account. I’ll wait and see what develops, for now.

  63. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Wow, NoFear plays the V card.
    An 8 game turnaround just doesn’t cut it, does it, skippy II?
    Shit, if we had Steve Young, we’d be in the Super Bowl. Oh, wait. . . if Joe Mantana was directing the offense from a wheelchair, we would have won the Super Bowl this year.
    No, NoFear, some people can’t see the forest for the trees. The team has improved markedly under Harbaugh. You still bitch about the QB. I’ve been dogging Crabtree and the WRs all year. No production out of them has hurt the team. same with VD. He wasn’t very aware a lot of the time of when to try and get his feet down after a catch. Crabs was horrible at that aspect. Edwards was hurt and ineffective. KW and the rest didn’t do shit all year. They didn’t get targeted because they didn’t get open. Crabs rarely looks for the ball half the time.

  64. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Care to place a little wager the Colts get compensated for Manning if Manning plays for another team? Put your money where your mouth is.

  65. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Caldwell was fired a month after you said that Fisher WOULD BE their next coach. The topic only came up when I reminded you that the Colts still had a head coach so how could they hire Fisher?
    Again you distort the facts just like you think 45 points is laying 50 on an opponent.
    Idiot Troll thinking.
    No Fear is too smart to pair up with a loser like you. I said this a long time ago, nobody wants to share a foxhole with you.
    Nobody will go to war with you because they know their chances of dying will increase 20 fold than going solo.

  66. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Sorry, skeebs. Hate to kill your winning the bet, but the Colts get nothing if they terminate Manning’s contract.
    They aren’t losing Manning to free agency, they are cutting him. There’s a difference, Einstain.

  67. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    I was here way before Einstain.
    Piss up a rope, skippy II.
    God, the ego on you is incredible.
    As usual you cast aspersions rather than face the point facts of the team. I mean, really, you have no legs to stand on regarding the 49ers, so it’s blather about the bloggers.

  68. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Facebook and Skeebers’ blog is blowin’ up… Chuck’s blog? Crickets. Chirp, Chirp!!!!

  72. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    I wouldn’t say crickets, Spit. But not as lively as it could be, or was. People strangely get tired of being screamed at and told to STFU every time they don’t properly bow in obeisance to the Ethereal Supreme Holiness That is Alex Smith. It was Colonel Twinfan with a Bullhorn in the Latrine, Inspector.

  73. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Today on my Facebook page I have 20 comments on this topic alone, from 6 different users. You’re trying to get a Manning conversation going, but it ain’t workin’ for ya. HAHA.
    Colin Cowherd had a funny take on Alex Smith…. I think it was Cowherd. He said if you’re a good looking guy, you win Super Bowls, if not, you have no personal confidence and you can’t win Super Bowls. He said this is why Alex Smith sucks so bad… ’cause he’s ugly. LMAO. You can shoot a hundred holes in that, but it’s still funny.
    I’ll take it a step further (as usual). Alex Smith is a loser, and losers like Alex Smith because they can identify with him. They think, “If a loser like Alex Smith can be successful and win a Super Bowl, then I’m not a loser either.” And that explains a lot around these here parts.

  74. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    I don’t think so, Albert. If that were true, you would be Alex’s biggest fan.

    The Blog Not Taken ~ By Albert Einstinkle
    Two blogs diverged in a yellow wood, and thankful I could not participate on both but be one blogger against the oppression of Skeeber’s Smith love, long I stood. And looked upon one blog as long as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth of Twinfan oppression.
    Then took the other, as just as fair, and certainly having the better claim. Because it was classy and wanted wear; Through as for that passing there, Had worn them really ’bout the same.
    And both that morning equally lay, in format user friendly.
    Oh, I don’t want to keep the first for another day (it ’causes narcolepsy). And know about the organized mass suicide on Unca’s blog, I doubted if I should ever come back.
    I shall not be telling this with a sigh. Somewhere ages and ages hence, Two blogs diverged in a wood, and I – I took the blog more traveled by, and that has made Chuck’s blog one boring-ass place to frequent.

  80. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Welcome back, Nofear, by the way. You’ll be safe till next September. And it’s always nice to hear about the baseless, mindless hero worship that occurs somewhere on the blogs. Maybe this year, I’ll discover where this mysterious cult actually exists!

  81. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebers – I’m right about the Colts being compensated for Manning, too. We’ll see. Manning would make the 49ers an immediate Super Bowl contender. With Alex Smith, they’re a Super Bowl pretender.

  82. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Just like Brett Favre did so much for the Jets and Vikings. How many Super Bowls did they win?

    Manning will be 36 years old and also is damaged goods.
    Teams you’ll have to outbid are the Jets, Dolphins and Cards.
    Somebody’s slasry cap is going to hell and I prefer it not to be the Niners.

  83. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Is that link directed at NoFear?
    You don’t have a choice to come back, oh brainless one. NoFear? Sure. He’s not as relentlessly asshole-ish as you.
    And since when do cut players get compensated for? They don’t.
    Irsay has 2 choices. Cut Manning for no compensation, or let him stay on the roster after March 8th, pay him his $35 mill, and THEN try to trade him. Good luck on trading a guy who may or may not be able to pad up and go . . .

  84. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    And why the hell do you love talking about my blog so much?
    I guess you really miss it.
    Boo hoo.

  85. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    The Jets don’t have the cap room. Manning will pick where he goes – that takes the Dolphins and Cards out of the equation. He’ll go to a team with a good coach, good offensive line, and a Super Bowl contender. You can attempt to smear Manning with a Favre reference, but nobody will buy it. Favre was an ego maniac, and risk taker. Manning isn’t. And Favre was still very close to the Super Bowl with the Vikings. The deal that brings Manning to any team will be about risk verse reward. Neck verse salary and compensation will be the game. It’ll take two smart GMs to workout a situation that benefits both teams – and a lot of communication. I wouldn’t be surprised if some of that talking between GMs is going on right now…

  86. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    God damn. Am I good, or am I good? I’m pretty good.

    The quote of the article – “We had a long talk today and we want to assure Colts fans everywhere that we are both committed to maintaining our close relationship and to working together through any challenges the future may bring.”
    A semi truck upside the head couldn’t bring more poignant foreshadowing to Colts’ fans everywhere. But then again, my scribblin’ does fly-byes over the Chuck and Bullit noggin’ on a daily basis, so what’s new?

  87. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    All that from a PR release to quell the Twitter sniping? Can’t wait for actual news. Why leave out the rest of the PFT story:
    “The future brings one significant challenge: What to do on March 8, when the Colts owe Manning a $28 million payment that could be avoided only if Manning is cut before then? Embedded in the question of whether the Colts will give the money to Manning is the question of whether Manning will delay the due date in order to give the Colts a better chance to assess his health.”

  88. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Manning and Irsay could, probably will, tear-up the current contract, knowing things change, and write another one that makes it easier to trade him, give him say where he goes, and for the Colts to be fairly compensated.

  89. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    I suppose we’ll find out in a short while and you could, probably will, thump your chest about guessing right about a subject that nobody cares a whole lot about. Irsay would love your scenario, but there’s no upside for Manning, unless giving up your money for the privilege of hurting the team you eventually go to because they had to get rid of draft picks to get you instead of just signing you as a FA is somehow an upside. I don’t see it, personally.

  90. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Coulda woulda shoulda. Story of your life, eh, skippy? The compensation issue is addressed in question 3.
    Manning is already on the books as saying he doesn’t want to restructure OR change the March 8 deadline. He said both last week. IF they agree to move the date and restructure, then this changes of course, skippy. Is that your point? No, of course not. You had no idea what you were talking about in the 1st place.

  91. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebers…. nobody cares about Manning in a 49er uniform? That’s news to me. ESPN right now is running stories about Manning to San Francisco. In addition, Manning was just given millions to sit on the bench all year by Irsay. Think Manning doesn’t want to do the right thing by the Colts organization? Think Manning wants to end his career there on a sour note? Think again, dude.

  92. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Otherwise you would have said it.
    God knows you never know when to shut the f*** up.

  93. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Everyone should turn on ESPN. They are all talking about Peyton to San Francisco.

  94. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Skippy, not when all the coaches and front office personnal he’s played and worked with for the past 12 years have been fired.
    Yer wiping yer mouth when you should be wiping yer ass. You got shit coming out of both ends.
    God, can you come up with something original? Peyton has as much change of landing on the Niners as he does in going to Detroit. He’ll most likely go to Miami, NYJ, or AZ. SF? No way. He wants a 5 year deal. ANYONE giving him that is crazy.

  95. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    I mean look at our stallar wideouts. I’m sure Peyton is drooling for the chance to throw to Swett Brain and no-look Crabs.

    As usual you say 50 different things, and they are all horseshit.

  99. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    I wasn’t talking about the interest in where Manning goes, Albert. I was talking about the intricacies of how he ends up being a non-Colt.

  100. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Charles… the underlying problem here is that Alex Smith has reached his high water mark with the 49ers and deep down inside you all know it – you, Berger, Bullit and Skeebers see Alex is a backup option, that the 49ers have grown out of their Alex Smith shoes, and you’re all squirmin’ against it ’cause you’ve put so much emotional stock in him. Literally two minutes ago the Alex Smith bandwagon was on full alert claiming, “I told you so,” after the Saints’ game. Five minutes ago Matt Maiocco and Brain Billick were claiming Alex Smith would get 10 million per year. Now, the house of cards has fallen. There are rumors of 49er interest in other quarterbacks. Not ten days after the Saints’ game, people are now reporting Peyton to the 49ers, but (and Berger will appreciate this), ya’ll can enjoy it now.
    People are writing articles about the immense Alex Smith failure during the NFC Championship game, going 1-14 on 3rd down, with 3 yards passing in five quarters to his wide receivers. Smith lovers rally a weak effort, blaming the receivers, but nobody can defense that. The Red Herring becomes the receiver excuses, but that sure wasn’t a problem during the Saints’ game. The wide receiver argument wasn’t made before the games, but after. The wide receiver argument grows pale in comparison to Peyton Manning as a 49er, but you can’t enjoy the idea of Peyton, can you? At least Berger is smart enough to give himself an out, claiming – “If that’s what Jim Harbaugh wants,” but you Chuck, you can’t enjoy this… Can you envision Manning to Morgan next year? Manning to Crabtree? TOUCHDOWN!!!!!!

  101. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    There’s pretty good evidence right there that Unca is Bullit…. the use of the word “Skippy” at the top.

  105. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I want to re-sign Alex Smith because I think he is a good QB and can lead us to a Super Bowl victory, but I trust Harbaugh knows more about QBing in the NFL than I do. I’ll defer to whatever he decides. Can I be any clearer?

  106. bullitNo Gravatar says:

  109. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    The only people insisting Smith has reached his peak are the Smith haters. There’s nothing but wishful thinking to support this view. Manning is rumored to be going all over the place. It’s called making up shit to feed to goofballs who take rumors as gospel when it suits their fantasies.

  110. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Will we ever hear from Nofear again?
    It could be taken as funny or scary depending on where you stand.

  120. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Stinkblood- You were excellent in the troll video earlier. Was that an act or the real you? You seemed so natural.

  121. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I go at NoFear fairly aggressively. Still, I would loved to drink a good six pack of beer with him and have some fun talking 49ers.
    Why do I say that? I just opened a 22 oz bottle of Killer Penguin barleywine. It is 10% ABV and fine. It tastes like a thick brown ale. I approve. I’m thinking of popping open a 5th of Pendleton whiskey to go with it!
    I’ve got Tinsley Ellis “Live Highwayman” spinning loud. Yah baby!

  122. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    That was all Spitty and rare footage in that video. It was almost like filming bigfoot.

  123. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I’m surprised he didn’t have a Steelhead and a joint hanging out of his mouth!

  124. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    When Spitty asked Nofear to team up NF went off the grid.
    He’s probably already at a safehouse.

  125. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    BTW- I’m trying to find a way to get a bottle of Tactical Nuclear Penguin (32% ABV) and Sink the Bismark (41% ABV) without having to order it from Europe. They are both beers. Strong beers!

  126. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    bullit- It probably drove him to find a bottle of Tactical Nuclear Penguin!

  127. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit, regarding Schiano, he’s a villian in these parts now.
    Rutgers is very concerned that his expected class of recruits, said to be his best in years, is about to bail/decommit like he just did.
    He’s done very well for the State U of NJ but, I’d question whether he’s ready for the NFL just yet.
    We’ll see.
    I’d be a little concerned about our OC Roman now too. He was in play for Penn St and is a NJ guy. Rutgers has an opening now.

  128. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Sounds like good tornado of bullshit beer.

  129. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    “Tornado of bullshit!” Maybe NoFear will come up with another good one to steal from him! He’s full of it, errrrr, I mean, them!

  130. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Tactical Nuclear Penguin with a link to Sink the Bismark:

  131. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    The Peyton argument is compelling.
    The obvious problem with him is health.
    His Contract is structured to force Indy to write the check or bail before FA begins.
    We still could benefit from all their rebuilding by grabbing one of his WRs in FA too. His long time mentor, Tom Moore has been moonlighting in NY with Sanchez and if Peyton were to become a viable option, Moore/Garcon/Wayne could all be had if we were to make a serious offer for his services.
    Highly unlikely due to the neck issue but….you never know.

  132. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I guess when Eli missed a lot of his wide open receivers it wasn’t his fault. He completed just a bit above 50% against us and should have had two picked. It is only widely noticed when it is Alex Smith. Alex had the game won except a punt returner who thought otherwise. How soon we forget.

  133. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I just opened a growler of Whiskey Barrel Amber by Indian Wells Brewery. I’ve had their Lobotomy Bock and liked it. This stuff sucks. The growler was 18 dollars. What a waste. Since it is 12% ABV I’m going to try to drink some more. If one of you are curious to try some of this I recommend you save your money.

  134. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Now the Pendleton is excellent. I usually drink sour mash but now and then I like to enjoy a good Canadian (Pendleton) or Irish Whiskey.

  135. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Do you experts realize that without the help of our punt returner “Get On Your Knees and Revere” Eli Manning only scored 10 points. Re-sign Alex Smith. Forget 36 year old Peyton Manning. And Eli won because he got a couple of lucky breaks.
    Championship teams usually have a symbiance between coach and QB. Our coach was conservative with Andrew Luck for God’s sake. Why would he be different in the pros. This is the perfect QB for Harbaugh. And wait until we get a year to work together. Better running game, better WRs, better passing game. I expect our defense to digress a little, I expect big improvement from the offense.
    I thnk you guys are buddies with Chicken Little. “The sky is falling.” You scared little know-it-alls. Grow a couple.

  136. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I wonder why they tried to brew this Whiskey Barrel Amber with a brown. It might have been interesting with a bolder hop. Maybe try it with a Pale Ale. I don’t know for sure, but this experiment failed. But I paid 18 dollars for chrissakes. Being the cheap bastard that I am, can I just throw half of it away? Isn’t this the Colts/Peyton Manning argument? They already paid him 23 mil, do they want to give him another 28? I would cut him. But can I throw out 9 dollars worth of beer? Any of you guys want to come over, I’ve got some 12% beer for you to try!

  137. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Somebody cover me, I’m going to the kitchen to drink some more of this shit. Oh what a burden to be so cheap. It does have a hint of bourbon taste in it. It is the only saving grace. It tastes like water and whiskey with a beer after taste.

  138. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I’m back! I put the Pendleton away and poured some more Whiskey Barrel Amber. Boy, am I a cheap bastard. Look at the bright side, I pick up a 4th growler for camping and get togethers!
    This tasting takes the want for Tactical Nuclear Penguin and makes me leery. It is an Imperial Stout which I don’t care for. There is nothing wrong with a 12 pack of Torpedo from Sierra Nevada and a good bottle of sour mash. The best sour mashes? Wild Turkey, except I don’t drink 101 proof for staying power. That gets rid of some of the best, like Blantons and Bookers. Eighty proof is my preference. For the money, Cascade Hollow by George Dickel is my value bourbon.

  139. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    For the record, Total Wine was out of Cascade Hollow, which is why I went with Pendleton.

And Berger’s right, best thing to come outta Sierra Nevada is Torpedo. The owner of Sierra Nevada is a smart man, Ken Grossman. He just bought real estate on a railroad spur, to minimize shipping costs. Good luck on pub! Hope you have some Niner photos.

    Back to football. Our offense HAS to be better. The margin of error in a Defense, special team, minimal offense mistake approach is too small. We dodged the injury bullet this year and the turnover gods favored. Hard to repeat that year in, year out. We need to get better at passing. Smith has to have better WR’s, and he has to learn to make the hard throws in a small window, and do so consistently. If he can’t then ever onward, I say.

    He’s much improved. likely better with another year in the system and a WR or 2 to work with through a full Camp.
    He has the ‘Dart’ pass under 10yds under control. He won’t go over the middle if he has to lay it in between LBs and S coverage. He prefers to go outside deep and over the top deep.
    Very well could be the only guy getting deep is Vernon too, but I’m not hating on the guy.
    He should come at an affordable price just for the sake of keeping the D intact.

    bullit- When I lived in Phoenix I used to go to North Phoenix Baptist Church. Why? They had a great indoor basketball court and it was about a mile away. I was a major gym rat. I used to guard many pro athletes trying to stay in shape for football and off season basketball. They all wanted me to guard them because of how physical I played. They said it kept them in check. I remember guarding one guy and watching him throw TDs on ESPN hi-lites for the CFL a month later.
    Some other notables at that church, the mayor, the Guvnor, Fife Symington, a US Senator named McCain and some guy named Glen Campbell. The place had a huge auditorium for preaching. Glen gave us all a free concert there. It was really cool. I have a friend who wrote one of his his first hits, Try a Little Kindness:

    NJ – Widespread Panic is a Jam Band. I don’t look at them like a Grateful Dead type, but I’m sure some do because that’s the inevitable label any jam band gets. They do a lot of covers now that their guitarist died.

    The Super Bowl:
    Looks like Perry Fewell is starting to finally get his legs underneath him as the Giants’ DC. It’s about time. Fewell has had some flashes of genius from time to time in New York, but he’s never been able to string together any kind of consistency. I think it’s because of Osi. I think Osi has a little TO in him. Kind of a douche, coupled with huge upside and ability. But Osi, now that Strahan is gone, is also kind of the leader on the defense and Osi turns it on and off – setting a bad example.
    When Justin Tuck first came into the league he was a beast, a savage with a bone in his nose, and took no prisoners. Now, Tuck is trying be all polished, classy – whatever. It doesn’t work. Don’t try to be all nice. You’re a beast. A savage. That’s what got you here. Don’t try to be the polished and refined pass rushers. Hopefully Aldon reads this. You are what got you there.
    Winning a Super Bowl is never any one thing – like losing an NFC Championship game is never any one thing. The Giants beat the Patriots four years ago because Tom Brady was injured, Eli Manning was clutch, and the Giant pass rush was relentless. That Super Bowl pass rush is what got Steve Spags the Rams’ job.
    This Super Bowl will be interesting because the Giants will go after the Gronker’s ankle. Grump posted a great link to Giants’ players admitting they went after Kyle’s noodle. They’ll do the same with the Gronker’s ankle – at least I hope they do. You throw the ball to the Gronker in the flats and have him try to turn up field – that’s when you try to bust his ankle. If the Giants can take the Gronker out of the game, they win. If the Gronker can’t go, the Giants win.
    (and while we’re on the subject – the Giants going after Kyle shows Harbaugh is right to be vague about injuries).
    In my opinion, the only way the Patriots win is if Eli Manning turns the ball over a few times. If you watch the sounds of the game on the NFL Network, and you watch the 49er / Giant game, you’ll hear Carlos Rogers saying, “Man, I can’t cover no option route all on my own.” That’s what Eli and Cruz do so well. It doesn’t even have to be single coverage. It can be double coverage – Cruz will make both guys miss (like against the Jets). I can see Belichick doubling Cruz all game, and you ask – “Why didn’t Fangio?” Well, it’s because varying your looks is the game in the playoffs. You can’t do one thing all game long. Fangio not making the switch earlier made Rogers look bad, but you can’t be a hero all the time.
    Anyway, I think there’s a lot to Bill Belichick being a cheater. It’s no coincidence Josh McDaniels was caught cheating in London. Those guys don’t deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Walsh. Go Giants!!!!!!!

  211. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Berger – I don’t know about any Dead connections, but I know their current guitarist who eventually replaced the founding guitarist “Mikey,” played with the Allman Brothers for a long time.

  212. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    This is from ESPN’S Adam Schefter. Read it and weep – maybe play some Bob while you read…
    “What wins championships? The team that wins Super Bowl XLVI will field the lowest-rated defense ever to become a world champion. The Patriots’ defense ranked 31st in the NFL this season, the Giants’ D 27th. One will have the distinction of becoming the Super Bowl-winning defense that has allowed the most yards.
    Until now, the lowest rated-defense to win a Super Bowl was that of the 2009 Saints, which ranked 25th. For the second time in three years, a team with a low-rated defense will overcome it for a championship. It is yet another sign that although strong defenses used to be the key to championships, they might not be quite as important at a time when NFL rules favor offenses.”

  213. BergerNo Gravatar says:

  220. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    The Giants played a tough stretch during the latter part of the season, and the entire team wasn’t healthy during that stretch. Their running back was out, their linebackers and secondary players were out, so were their wide receivers (off and on). It wasn’t just the wrs who were injured during that tough part of the schedule. Eli still got ’em into the playoffs. But then again, their competition during the regular season was the Cowboys, so Eli’s real magic was beating the Falcons, Packers and 49ers to get to the big dance. Good qb play is everything… and it must be sustainable for three or four games in the playoffs.

  221. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    How many points did the Gnats put up on the scoreboard before those 2 fumbles? Eli the Elte put up a whopping 10 points.
    Alex Smith put up 14 points you ignorant troll hater. Eli the Elte could only manage 1 TD pass up to that point. So to say that Kylw Williams’ mistakes had no bearing shows how totally stupid
    and clueless you are.
    It’s also curious that only an imbecile like yourself would care about this Super Bowl so much and disuss it like the Gnats fan you are.
    Perhaps I should call you the festering human hemerrhoid.

  242. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Well, NoFear, seeing as Harbaugh has had Alex as his QB for one year and got a 13-3 season out of him, what would you do? Shit, Steve Young woulda been better, right?
    That’s right. Sign Kyle Pickett.
    The only hand Spitty gets from NoFear is the obligatory reach-around. NoFear certainly is smarter, therefore he’s pitching. Spit is in the usual bitch position.

    From PFT, apparently disputing Albert’s earlier pronunciations:
    “According to sources who were involved in the Colts’ GM search, the organization was planning to move on from Manning weeks ago, well before this public squabble between the quarterback and his owner,” La Canfora said. “So Friday’s joint statement won’t be changing a thing.”
    Per La Canfora, the team will cut their ties to Manning before the scouting combine. The combine begins on February 22nd, well ahead of the March 8th deadline currently in place for the team to give Manning $28 million or set him free.

  247. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebers, this is what I must teach you, my son – it’s the value of you and I. We aren’t much different from Matt Maiocco or Jason La Canfora, young grasshopper. Earlier this week you said, “See Albert, you were right [about the Goldson franchise tag issue] and you didn’t have to bet anything.” I was right? Why because Matt Maiocco did exactly the same thing I did (just a day later), and figured out the logical move on his own was to franchise Goldson over Rogers. Come on. He’s speculating just like you and I are. He doesn’t know what Baalke’s gonna do anymore than Berger’s neighbor does. Guys like Irsay use the media, so sometimes blogs are more reliable. Owners, coaches and GMs manipulate the media. Harbaugh uses and manipulates Maiocco. One minute Alex Smith is “elite,” the next minute his job must be earned the next year and Jim Harbaugh is saying, “I was very careful with how I worded and framed my thoughts around the competition for our quarterback position.”
    If Jason LaCanfora writes, “the Colts will cut ties to Manning before his bonus is due, what does that tell you?” The answer is nothing. Just like Matt Maiocco reporting that Goldson is the likely candidate to be franchised. That’s nice. Matt agrees with me (or he read me). So what? I honestly hold the thoughts of Barley, Grump, Del (when sober), you and Berger in more regard.
    Riddle me this, Skeebers, my young grasshopper? If Irsay was going to just cut ties with Manning, and not seek compensation, why isn’t Manning a free agent right now? Explain that one to me? Why hasn’t Irsay announced, when the Super Bowl’s over, Manning’s a free agent and he’s free right now to talk to other teams. This would give Manning time to negotiate, show he’s healthy and even start brushing-up on a new playbook. Know why Irsay didn’t? Compensation. La Confora will figure it out …. eventually. Maybe he already has, and can’t report it. Who knows? The Colts will be compensated.

  248. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    There’s a big difference between bloggers and guys like Maiocco and La Canfora. They have sources, we do not. When they leak stuff, people listen. They can’t afford to be wrong very often without losing credibility. When you leak stuff, people just grab a mop.
    The whole Irsay PR show looks crafted to get the fan base properly set up to cheerfully accept a so long Manning announcement without a lot of booing of Irsay.

  249. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    “You leak stuff, people just grab a mop.” That’s clever, but they just re-tape my diaper… again.

    I agree with all that, and agree Irsay is making a PR move. I’m certain he’s trying to get his fan base used to the idea of Peyton gone, but he just paid Peyton for an entire year to sit on the bench and look disappointed in Painter. He’ll get compensated.

    The reason they’d franchise Goldson is because they DON’T want to sign him to a long term deal. Did AF not teach you anything, V? Rogers gets a 3 year deal. Duh. He’s either franchised or gone.

    NJ –
    I don’t know. I had all my CDs stolen out of my truck about 3 years ago and I haven’t bought a CD since, or any kind of album. And that sucks, because as the great Quincy Jones will tell you, putting together an album is an art form by itself. Sorry. I just know the songs I like. Also, if you’re on Facebook, like their site. They share concerts from the archive Podcasts on a pretty regular basis. Great stuff you’d never hear otherwise.

    And now, back to your regularly scheduled trolling.
    Hey, Alex Smith lovers…. did you guys know the Giants’ defense was ranked 27th in the NFL? WTF? Yeah, THAT Giant defense. The one Alex Smith went 1-14 against with 3 yards passing to his WRs. 27th ranked defense and he can only manage 1 third down conversion in 14 tries, and 3 yards to a wide receiver? Are you kidding me?
    This game isn’t on Kyle Williams – it’s on Alex Smith. Alex Smith choked in the big game. $10 million per year? Are you insane? Try “played himself right out of town.”

    Got another guy to add to my ‘List’.
    Kid named T.Y.Hilton from FL Int.
    Very close in size to TGinn. Handles P/KR duties and has much better numbers in the WR category.
    Listed with 4.48 speed too.

    Got a tall WR for you too.
    Juron Criner AZ 6’4″ 215
    He did well in the Sr Bowl.
