Too Much Noise

There’s been a lot of pixels devoted to unraveling the hatchet job Jed York did to Jim Harbaugh, but York also undermined GM Trent Baalke, by torpedoing his choice for the 49ers’ new HC.

And some people wonder why there’s so much animosity towards York. In one offseason, he managed to screw both his HC and his GM. Not to mention all 49er fans and the team itself. This is the monumental douchebag we’re supposed to support?

Former Broncos’ OC Adam Gase was Baalke’s choice for HC, to be paired with incumbent DC Vic Fangio. That was a Harbaugh replacement team that many 49er fans could have gotten excited about. It wouldn’t have absolved York from his petty, underhanded dismissal of Harbaugh, but at least it would look like a reasonable stab at replacing him.

But York stepped in and insisted Jim Tomsula be Gase’s DC and Gase said, “Screw that.” Gase is now in Chicago as their OC, paired with Fangio — essentially the staff that Baalke wanted here.

At that point, it looks like Baalke threw up his hands and figured the only way to get Tomsula out of his hair was to hand him the HC job, conduct a draft geared to 2016, and wait for Tomsula to fall on his face this year, so Baalke could fire him at the end of the season. We’ll see at that point whether York can finally cut ties with his beloved locker room mole. We’ll also see if any other coach in the league would want to hire a guy who sold out his coach here. A guy you couldn’t trust.

York’s primary concern this year is preparing for the Super Bowl that’s coming to Santa Clara next February. The last thing he wants is an HC who distracts him all year with efforts to improve the team. He can rest assured that Tomsula won’t give him a moment’s hassle all year.

After all, when Jed’s father John York fired Steve Mariucci after a successful five year run, John gave his reason as “Too much noise.”

That’s pretty much why Jed fired Harbaugh, too. These Yorks like a quiet workplace. A lot more than they like a productive one.

    Skeebs that’s the scenario that has scared me the most.
    A meddling Owner, in the Daniel Snyder mold.

    Baalke has a pretty solid NFL resume, in terms of his Parcells lineage.

    Jed came up during the 9er Glory Years.
    He knows Uncle Eddie’s model.
    Problem is, the York’s don’t spend like that.

    Enter the angst filled era we’re all trying to survive in now.

  2. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Looking a little bit more into what happened with Mooch is scary because it seems that Harbaugh ouster was using the same gameplan. When Dwight Clark and Carmen Policy left to join Holmgren in Cleveland (why is it always the Browns?) there was a rumor that Mooch might follow them and that triggered a contract extension.

    Fast forward when Mooch had 2 years left on his contract and he was rumored to be a candidate for every available coaching vacancy in the NFL

    It seems like the York Gameplan is to discredit the coach by quesstioning his loyalty to the Niners and link him to other jobs. That provides cover for firing a successful coach.
    Some swallow this hook line and sinker.
    The Yorks think it was a successful play 10 years ago so they
    decided to go back to what worked.

  3. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Back to yesterdays ESPN article about Mooch. These points are telling and similar to what just happened with Harbaugh.

    “The reasons for Mariucci’s departure were murky — perhaps by design for an organization that simply felt Mariucci hadn’t reached the exacting standards it demands, whether on the field or off.”

    “It’s a very emotional and unpleasant situation for both of them,” general manager Terry Donahue said of York and Mariucci. “Dr. York has a very strong idea about how he wants the 49ers structured. … This is a philosophical split between what John wanted to do and what Steve wanted.”

    “According to Donahue, Mariucci wanted a bigger role in the 49ers’ football decisions, including the position of vice president of football operations. But Mariucci’s agent, Gary O’Hagan, said Mariucci never made those demands, and he desperately wanted to return.”

    There goes those damned “philosophical differences” again.
    Like father like son? I thought Jed was more like Uncle Eddie but apparently I was mistaken.

  4. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    When you think you have wronged someone it is hard to look people in the eye. John York’s bunker mentality behavior speaks volumes after he fired Mooch.

    “But York didn’t attend the news conference announcing Mariucci’s firing, choosing instead to conduct a conference call from the second floor of the 49ers’ training complex with reporters who were on the first floor.”
    “You can’t have that much difference between the owner and the head coach,” York said. “We need to go find a head coach that fits into our structure.”

    So the reporters are all gathered on the first floor and you are sitting on the second floor of that building and you have a conference call. Sounds like John York feeling guilty and not feeling confident to show his face to answer questions.

  5. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Does this sound familiar? Seems like it just happened but this was from John York’s reign.

    “Mariucci repeatedly said he wanted to keep his family in the San Francisco Bay area, and he would be willing to take a minimal raise or even coach the final year of his contract without an extension.”

    “I didn’t think that it was best to have a lame-duck coach,” York said. “I thought it was best to have a coach that we were fully committed to. There’s been enough noise around here for the last two years. It’s just too much noise. You can’t be doing all this stuff and moving the team along.”

    There is a big difference between the demeanor and style of Mooch and Harbaugh.

    The Yorks just can’t stand success. Mooch’s record was 57-39 and his last team was into the second round of the playoffs.
    Thus the spin about philosophical differences.

    Jed. York. Blows. Goats.

  7. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Hey, if they suck, they suck. If whining about it nonstop makes you feel better, have at it.

    Eddie was very similar to his nephew. The biggest difference between the two was the Bill Walsh hire. Walsh turned a dogs hit team into a champion.

    Jed and Jim turned an underachieving team into a contender. Close, but not quite.

  8. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:


  9. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Jed York isn’t Eddie. Jed York isn’t anything close to Eddie. Only halfwits think playing the name game association with Jed will make Jed York a better owner.

    Eddie took over ownership in ’77, and four years later he had his first Lombardi. In 22 or 23 years of ownership, Eddie won five Super Bowls.

    Jed York took over control in ’08, and seven years later, unlike Uncle Eddie, Jed has no rings to show for his tenure. And he won’t for another ten years. I honestly don’t think Jed York will ever win a SB. And as the years go by, the comparison between Jed and Eddie, that Jed supporters hope to make, will grow smaller and smaller each year until it’s blatantly obvious to all that Jed is no Eddie.

    Jed York has been in control of the 49ers for twice as long as it took Eddie to win his first Super Bowl, and in year seven Jed York, without any Lombardi trophies, has turned his team and this franchise into a laughing stock.

    My question, with Anthony Davis and Alex Boone missing OTAs and the new O line coach needing to install a new zone blocking scheme, and Carlos Hyde missing meetings, tweeting crazy stuff, and then basically not caring that he was late or missed a meeting…. my question is …. Has Jed York already lost the locker room?

  10. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    TB tanking the season on purpose and this explains it. No point in keeping Ahmad Brooks or VD after June 1. Now get it in Jed’s face all season. Shame that MF into a dark never heard from corner.

    Need to teach that puke a lesson. If it comes to some training on brass knucks for a biker gang trainee please video and have it go viral in the bay area. The taste of revenge.

  11. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Bakkentom might, uh…. he, uh…. he might be unstable. Good thing for Bakken the Patriot Act is up for a vote.

  12. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah but I won’t be feeding ducks.

  13. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Don’t get me wrong. I respect you. And I also respect that you won’t be Del Mar Dennis. I’m just trying to help with an exit strategy if Johnny Law comes for you. I got your back.

  14. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Spit, Google bridgewater energy and look at the ripoff report article. There are crazies everywhere. Just planting the seeds. Why endure decades of York bullshit.

    Gotta be enterprising psychos out there looking to make a name for themselves. Just helping them channel.

  15. winderNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebs- i know it’s a slow time of year, but Mooch, really? i liked Mooch but he happened at a time when the shit hit the fan. Remember all the T.O. bullshit, and the cap casualties. Dr. york was a terrible owner and everyone knew it. If I remember right Mooch said his dream job was GB or Detriot. There was a lot of crap happening, just like the new post of yours. I don’t love or even like Jed but I usually don’t like any boss I have.

  16. winderNo Gravatar says:

    And, Gase is no proven talent, he’s liable to fall on his face in chicago. I thought Fangio was gonna be the HC but it turns out he wasn’t.

  17. winderNo Gravatar says:

    You guys keep talking about losing a locker room, Mooch really did lose it.

  18. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    You missed the points of the post, Winder. It wasn’t about Mooch or Gase. It was about how the York’s do business.

  19. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    I didn’t like Gase, either, but the point was, Baalke did and York torpedoed the choice.

  20. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebs, Baalke sought Offense, plain & simple.

    Walsh had it.

    We lack it.
    Big Time.

    Jed wants it.
    Trent seems to be looking for it.
    Can Kaep deliver it is the question.

    We’re stuck in a time warp of sorts.

    Jed is Eddie, with a Salary Cap, and a strict budget.

    No cake walk.

  21. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    Any thoughts why Baalke is enamored with Spurrier and SCAR players?

    He’s getting desperate.

    If Kaep fails, which I believe Jed finds possible because he’s Harbaughs’ guy,we’re doomed.

    Jed will pin this on Trent.

    Tomsula and Dr John are linked to my theory that NFLE is an NFL agenda.

  22. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    Sportier represents a tie between Trent & Offense IMO.

    Jim came up short in that regard.

  23. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:


  24. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    I didn’t particularly “like” Harbaugh, Roman or Fangio. But they were hot shit when it came to winning games. We had them all here and under contract. A real turn-around for the Niners and the fans from many years of suck.

    The guys who did all they could to turn rooting for hot shit into constantly explaining and excusing dog shit have earned the wrath of the fans. And I’m at a loss to explain those who spend all their time bitching about those bitching about it!

    Maybe they’ve been in the dumper so long they want to get back there ASAP. Good! Enjoy your misery and your place in league history, whining about why your team can’t ever win. But leave me the hell alone to bitch about what I see as the self-inflicted melt-down of a team that was contending not just hoping to. And I won’t tell you to quit cheering for dog shit.

    NJ49er, we had enough offense to win more games than any other team in the league for three years. That’s what warranted blowing the team up?

    Harbaugh set a record for the most wins for any new coach ever, IIRC.

    The 8-8 year I’ve seen used for the excuse doesn’t work. The decision was made before the season began. “Harbaugh won’t be back” is how we started the last year thanks to the incredibly inept brain-trust of Baalke/York.

    Baalke’s job is a helluva lot more than just drafting, if that’s where you gauge his strength. He failed worse at running the team than you say Harbaugh failed at fielding an offense.

  25. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    NoFear49er I’m suggesting Jed is as impetuous as Eddie without the merit to buy talent.

    Tightwad York’s putting pressure on all concerned to WIN.

    It’s beyond frustrating.

  26. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    Jed scares me too.
    If Trent can assemble anything close to reasonable talent, Jed needs to spend on Coaching.

    That’s the razors’ edge.

  27. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    God help us all if

  28. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    Jed goes Jerruh

  29. winderNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebs I did see the connection you were making. But, i think things were a lot different during those times. And, I pray(I’m not religious) that Jeddi is not a clone of DR. York.
    Nofear- i don’t think what I am doing is bitching, and I know you didn’t name me. I consider myself as leveling the playing field. There is a possibility that Harbaugh is a lot happier where he is, and that things were irreconcilable. There are two sides to the coin.

  30. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Well, Jerry thought a trained monkey could run his team with him as GM. How’s that different than what York/Baalke just did?

  31. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    I don’t understand your rationalization here, NJ49er. Folks complaining about Harbaugh say the problem was he relied on his defense. So we promote a position coach from the defense to run the team and choose the QB coach to run the offense. The same guy who Harbaugh’s detractors said called the stupid plays in the offense they say sucked and they try to convince me they know what they’re saying and I don’t?

  32. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Winder if there’s the possibility that things were irreconcilable that includes the possibility things were reconcilable. Those are the two sides. All I saw were people pushing the irreconcilable side. They were public pushes. I didn’t see a single instance of anyone pushing the other side. Did you?

  33. winderNo Gravatar says:

    Nofear, I am so far out of the loop all I saw was media feeding frenzy.

  34. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Point taken, Winder. I realize all the facts will probably never be known by most. It’s the end result that bothers me as much as the nuts and bolts of it, however.

    If being ‘hard to get along with’ is good and acceptable reason to fire someone responsible for so many wins, how many great players would you tolerate losing to that one?

  35. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    What is NFLE?

  36. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    York did spend big on Harbaugh and all the coaches beneath. Seems Skeebs is correct that TB got blindsided by the owners son.

    An awful season that chokes their income stream may cost Guido his job amidst a housecleaning and a new O elite for the next well paid Harbaugh.

  37. winderNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah, I agree. The way it was done was nothing more than a clusterf***k. Somebody with the info will give it up someday.

  38. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    NoFear49er opinions here at this site aren’t that far apart IMO.

    Many of us feel Jim lacked a 2nd gear for scoring points.

    Defense, for me anyway, is something Trent excels at.
    Ala Parcells.

    Jed, as we ALL know, is Eddie’s nephew.
    Jed knows SB’s.

    Couple Jed, with ‘Parcells’ and, what do we get?

    A major personality disorder.

    For me?
    That spells Jerruh.
    That spells Snyder.

    While I whistle past my local graveyard, I PRAY FOR JED!

  39. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    Hence, the reason why I feel Baalke is my salvation.

    I pull for him to do well, in spite of the guy that signs his checks.

    Jerruh couldn’t coexist with Jimmy or Bill.

    Because his EGO wouldn’t allow it.


    Jed=Rich Kid without a clue.

  40. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    Bakkentom NFLE is NFL Europe

    Dr John= NFL advocate for NFLE expansion.

    Connect the dots.
    Dr John?

    London 49ers?

  41. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Agree Balkey was undermined by Yorks insisting on Tomsula as DC or HC. Lot of undermining from on high, that’s how the Yorks build winners.

    So Tomsula, what’s he like on the field as HC? Compared to Jimi?

  42. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    The SF Bay area is a really nice market for a team and with Levi’s they are not going anywhere. So a weaker market team may go overseas but not us? Expansion teams maybe.

  43. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Highly doubtful that the NFL would allow the SF Bay Area to be without a team.
    Carmen Policy was hired by the Raiduhs to pursue the building of the stadium in Carson so the Raiduhs might be moving. Yesterday Mark Davis says he’s willing to sell a minority stake in the team. Looks like he’s trying to raise an addition $400 mil for a stadium.
    This all forces Oakland to stop dragging their feet and do something.

  44. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    TB may view OC/DC as interim and when Jed comes to his senses we will get an elite O mind as HC in 2016 and both go back to their positions held last season.

  45. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Nice article, Phil.

    “Harbaugh runs a big 10 1970s offense.”

    Hmm. Where have I heard that before?

    Screen passes? Can I get an amen? You folks should be hsppy we are returning to a semblance of the WCO. I am.

  46. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    NJ are you seriously tieing Tomsula’s NFLE coaching experience with the team moving to London?

    The stadium isn’t even a year old. Don’t think they are going anywhere for hhe foreseeable future.

  47. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Inman has an article on Okoye. 2 years with Guido and he works on staying low. On 53 roster or poached by another team.

  48. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    I’m suggesting the York’s may be in line for NFLE expansion in some way Chuck.

    Tomsula is connected.
    York heads the Committee.

    I wouldn’t expect the 9ers to leave the Bay either.
    We’re just likely to be a major player in the Marketing.

  49. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Got Jimi? No Michigan has him but here’s a taste:

    From NN which links to the other two =

    As an added bonus the first SI link has the Mich season schedule to help you compare. Lol. They are going nuts over there and Jimi is happily doing his thing.

    No Jimi wasn’t perfect and the O coulda used some improvement but we’ll never know what 2015 woulda looked like now will we?
    Didn’t do too bad for a first time NFL HC. Pray your boy JT doesn’t embarrass us.

  50. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    NJ I think you may be right about Yorks having an “in” with the NFL expansion in Europe. Maybe rights to own another team over there?

  51. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    “Maybe rights to own another team over there?”

    I mean NJ the Yorks would be a good model for new owners to follow over there right? Show ’em how to run a team, build fan loyalty. Jed could consult on public relations, lol.

    But wouldn’t surprise me if something like this developed.

  52. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    So NFL Euerope was folded because it was bleeding $30 mil a year.
    The NFL Europe MVP was JT O’Sullivan which should tell you quality of players.

  53. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    “TB may view OC/DC as interim and when Jed comes to his senses we will get an elite O mind as HC in 2016 and both go back to their positions held last season.”

    This is rational and makes sense sort of like Fangio as HC and Tommy as DC did but we saw what happened. Jed may never wise up but those are good positive ideas Bakkentom

  54. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    After Walsh the only successful defensive head coach has been Seifert. That is balanced by the offensive Erickson being a failure.
    Mooch & Harbaugh had outstanding success with Nolan and Singletary being the opposite.
    With a defensive minded coach like Tomsula you need a strong innovative offensive mind. Is Geep that guy? We’ll soon find out.

  55. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Wouldn’t have to be a league over there. Just 2 teams, NFL teams, or even one would be more likely.

    I think based on what I’ve read that the NFL is definitely looking to expand to 36-40 teams in next few years. LA is heating up and sounds like something (or 2) will be going in there as soon as 2016. Must be a bunch of cities looking for an NFL team in the US. Sacramento?

  56. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Goodell will ruin football if they get to 40 teams.

    Too much of a good thing is bad.

    For all the heat the York’s are getting, goodell is doing his damnedest to screw the golden goose.

  57. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Warriors 3-0. Blow out in Houston.

    Yes NJ praying for York jr may be better than cursing him. That’s futile so maybe praying for his enlightenment will work. Prayer is still legal in the US, right? Or not…

  58. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Last I checked, prayer is OK Phil 😀

    I use the term more for the NFL Gods, which we assume are there for our continued support in times such as these.

    As I’ve endeavored to convey, Jed is a neophyte in the wake of the Uncle Eddie time warp.

    Things don’t work now, as they did then.
    Where money isn’t Capped, is in the Coaching.

    He either lucks out with an up-and-comer or, he’s doomed to repeat this process of burning them out.

  59. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Levi’s Stadium garnered the ‘Sports Facility of the Year’ Award the other day too.
    Beating out the like’s of Jerruh World, among others.
    And who was the recipient you might ask?
    Al Guido. Go figure….

    Could the stars align for Jed’s 9ers as SB50 Host?

    We can only hope.

    Okoye, Tomsula, Logan, Hayne making a Home Team debut in SB50?

    How would that cap off a Marketing Trifecta for NFLE?

    I can dream can’t I?

    “The NFL Brand will be adorned in Gold this year as well…”

    Unfortunately the Niners players decided to wear black this year in their alternative uniforms. IMO they are plain and they are ugly. Apparently the Niner players forgot one of their colors is gold.

  62. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    The W’s are five wins from the NBA Championship!

    If you follow the logic of Jed’s management style then Steve Kerr is screwed and will have a hard time duplicating this season. According to the apologists he had too much success in the beginning for his own good.

    It is laughable how some people think (apologists) with narrow thinking of topping the previous season or else you’re a failure.

    The Warriors 67 wins in the regular season was one of the top ten records in NBA history. It is obvious apologists and Jed have a hard time dealing with success and do so with knee jerk reactions..

  63. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    No, Bullitt. In this scenario Harbaugh is Mark Jackson. Close but not quite.

    If York fired Harbaugh after one year then your analogy makes sense. As it is, well, you don’t.

    The rest remains to be seen.

  64. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit I’m pretty sure there will be lots of sale prices on those alternate jersey’s by season’s end.

    Whoever chose them, is a mystery to me.

    Save them for a night game maybe?
    Try and be stealth in the shadows perhaps?

    I’m with you, GOLD, GOLD, GOLD with some red and white added.

  66. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    That’s all the game Unca_Chuck has at this point – the name game association. According to Chuck, Harbaugh is John Fox and Harbaugh is Mark Jackson. According to Chuck, Tomsula is Steve Kerr, and Jed York is Eddie D. I almost threw up in my mouth reading Chuck just now. That’s why I stopped and don’t know why I ever started again. Chuck is, and continues to be, a waste of internet breath.

  67. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Was looking at some drafts and the Steelers need help at OLB. They drafted Bud Dupree in the 1st but have nothing else but old man Harrison and a bust. A player for player trade with Ahmad Brooks for what? Cleveland and Chicago had great drafts.

  68. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    On second thought there will be no trade. Nothing happened so far so they are waiting for him to be released in one week.

    Anyway our D coaches have great resumes and proven experience. Can Blaine Gabbert be resurrected. Finally all players will be vetted this year. Hidden gems for me are Okoye and Gabbert.

  69. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Draft results are usually better in the Top 10 Bakkentom.
    Wish we’d have had a shot at Kevin White or Amari Cooper ourselves.

    See what we get from Armstead.
    He’s likely going to need at least a year to get up to speed, both physically and mentally.

    If Tomsula gets anything from Okoye, it’s going to be next to miraculous IMO.
    Kid never played football before he arrived.
    Freakish athlete though.

    See what happens with both he and Jarryd Hayne.

    Major projects both.

  70. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I’m hoping the gems for us show up as WRs.
    Hoping the new Coaches, Curry and Henry can get something from the UDFAs.
    Dres Anderson was a very productive guy while at Utah.

  71. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Two reasons the Warriors fired Mark Jackson.
    He let his ministry and religious beliefs get in the way of his coaching. His stance on gay marriage and preaching about it could not be tolerated especially in the Bay Area.

    Mark Jackson was paranoid and insecure. After Mark Malone he refused to hire quality assistants because he feared they would be in line to take his place. Mark Jackson banned Warriors EVP Jerry West and color analyst Jim Barnett from the practice facility not allowing them to watch practices.
    Mark Jackson was a very insecure person.

    So far other teams in the NBA have not approached MJ to interview for vacant coaching positions most likely because of the reasons I have mentioned.

  72. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Pro Football Focus just came out with QB performance under pressure

    If you look at the article this explodes Chuckles Myth on how much time a QB has to get rid of the ball. Chuckles believes a QB has 4-5 seconds on average which is way over the mark. He’s connecting the wrong dots.

    “– The QBs that hold the ball longer tend to face the highest percentage of pressure, and that’s generally the case at the top of the list. Robert Griffin III had the fifth-highest time to throw at 2.94 seconds while Russell Wilson was first at 3.18 seconds.

    – On the other end, the faster the QB can get the ball out of his hand, the less pressure he’ll face and that’s why Peyton Manning and Andy Dalton faced the lowest percentage of pressure as they got rid of the ball in 2.25 seconds and 2.41 seconds, respectively.

    – Including the playoffs, Tom Brady’s 2.36 seconds in the pocket was the second quickest behind Manning, yet he still managed to face very close to the league average when it comes to pressure (32% vs. NFL avg of 33.4%).”

  73. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Those aren’t the only reasons Mark Jackson was fired. He was also fired because he wasn’t a good strategist, and I don’t know that the players totally bought into Mark Jackson. Curry just said, the other night, “Not with this coach,” when responding to a question about strategy. To me, it implied he really prefers Kerr’s style to Jackson’s. Either way, regardless of reason, Steve Kerr might be the next great head coach in all of sports – not just the NBA.

    The Bay Area could have Bochy, Kerr and Harbaugh. All potential HOF coaches. Instead they have Bochy, Kerr and Tomsula? Tomsula? Really?

    Bullit that’s been a pretty common denominator with Kaep.
    Our short game never materialized in any productive way IMO.

    I’ve felt the need for something more WCO-based, as a possible way to help him and the OLine.

    Hopefully we’ll see more of that coming?
    Who knows at this point?

    Totally new.
    Totally unknown.

    QB/RBs/WRs need a timing element among them.

    Kaep is still being reported to be firing the gun too.
    I hope he’s found some touch this off-season.

    Fastballs clanking off Receiver’s hands turns into INTs as well as INCs.

    Ball control and balance.
    Move the sticks, spread it around.

    Bullit another article from the site you just shared –

    I’m a bit surprised to see some of the guys they’ve listed as ‘Reaches’.

    Interesting commentary however….

    I’m going to be mildly surprised, if Pittsburgh whiffed with Dupree.
    Their track record with LBs is rather legendary IMO.
    Could it be the loss of LeBeau?

    Curious to see how that selection turns out.

    I was never high on McKinney either.

  76. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah Steve Kerr is so screwed if he keeps this up and falls one game short. Loser.

    That actually happened in Sacramento to Rick Adelman and the Kings when I was there. Lost in finals to Shaq/Kobe/Lakers and despite subsequent winning seasons never got to the dance again. Sadly the owners, Maloof brothers, canned him after a couple years and what happened? Yeah the York trajectory into irrelevance to this day.

    That was my second taste of owner arrogance/stupidity following Eddie losing the team and preceding the Yorks. This latest is so blatantly a move driven by personal pique that I can only shudder at the likely outcome.

  77. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Kerr is getting the most out of his players, the hallmark of a good coach. Jimi did that for the most part too. With Kerr it helps to have a Stephen Curry pouring in 3s (and the team playing great D). He is getting the best out of them.

    Should be a great battle against ‘King’ James in the finals.

    We’ll see if the 9ers can absorb the new schemes, plays and new coaching staff to play team ball this year. A lot will depend on Kap leading the O effectively as has been said here.

    Phil I had read somewhere that the black Uni’s might have started with Harbaugh putting Kaep in said attire to keep him ‘untouchable’.

    Not sure if that spawned it but, it was suggested somewhere along the line of reading I’ve done.

    Pretty sure the Black Uni’s are only allowed in season twice.
    We have 3 night games, NYG (Away/SNF), ‘Hawks and Bengals (Home/Home).

    Might be a good place to use them for that ‘stealth’ effect in those venues?

    Sure wouldn’t make any sense to play in them in a hot weather game.

    I heard max 2 games allowed in the black unis too NJ. That’s enough, right?

    I’ll believe a ‘stealth effect’ when I see it. Like the speeded up practices and running plays quicker. Sure would have helped us in the SB tho. Only good if the plays following the quick huddle are run effectively otherwise we just get quicker busted plays.

    Be interesting to see how Foeresters zone blocking scheme works out for the OL. We’ll be going from the mauling run attack that worked so well for 3 years to a ‘deception’ scheme we haven’t had since? Shanahan?

  84. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Seriously Phil.
    No clue what to expect.

    IMO, can’t hurt to speed things up.
    We dabbled with it, (successfully) with Harbaugh but, for some reason never exploited it enough.
    Kaep has to speed up his progressions.
    This sort of approach just might help him in the long run?
    Let’s hope so anyway.

    Glad to read of the short passing work too.
    Reggie and Carlos, Kendall too, aren’t bad in the receiving department.

    If a Defense has to pay attention to RBs leaking out of the backfield, LBs have to respect it, rather than pinning their ears back and selling out for the sack.

    See what comes this Summer.
    Just want to see some balance and tempo develop between Kaep and the guys supporting him.

  85. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    It’s amazing how many games Harbaugh was able to win having had no idea what was working and what wasn’t. One lucky and stupid sumbitch.

    Let me try this once more, if anyone’s still interested in real things, that is:

    Last year’s passing stats

    281 215 1709 5 2 – Less than ten yards downfield

    164 74 1659 14 8 – Ten yards and more downfield

    63% of pass attempts and 74% of completions at less than ten yards.

    The big problem I see is locking on to one receiver, whether he be short or deep. Some of that is due to pressure and some of it is due to not recognizing the defense and knowing what’s coming after the snap. Knowing where the protection is going and who the free rusher might be and knowing how the defense is likely to react to your route patterns. Most of that is on Kaepernick.

    It seems to me that Harbaugh was realistic about what Kaepernick could do. I suppose having played the position and years of head coaching might have worked in his favor for that. While, of course, I understand he never had a prayer of being anywhere near as capable of head coaching a team as most bloggers. I mean, who does? One lucky and stupid sumbitch. Bring in the guys who win in the press conferences! Now we can blame the players.

  86. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    NoFear49er much of it was on Kaep.
    Hence my hopes that he is quicker in his progressions and lighter on his fastball too.

    It’s a combination of that you’ve added above.
    No question.

    I have made similar observations, related to what Harbaugh ‘may’ have had to ‘dumb-down’ in terms of the playbook density for Kaep.

    Many moving parts in this racket.
    And, it all goes through the QB.

    Kaep has had a very bad habit or locking onto his primary read a wee bit too long at times.
    Hoping he’s improved in that regard after his time at EXOS.

    “Address at which he was arrested belongs to ex-49ers teammate Justin Smith, according to property records.”

  97. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Regardless what’s going on with McDonald, he’s done. McDonald can play the victim card all he wants. The Bears will cut him, Fangio will lose a little (but not a lot) of credibility for standing up for McDonald, and McDonald will try desperately to get back into the NFL with little success. McDonald is like Bill Cosby – no charges sticking but we all know, through numerous alternations now, he’s guilty of some crime.

    The 49ers and NFL have done just an excellent job of suppressing evidence and keeping the public in the dark. It reminds me of the Frontline piece that shows the lengths the NFL would go to quiet critics of the sport and it’s brain trauma. This all why I watch basketball and baseball now…. and golf.

    Yeah, but RayMac was innocent here, Skeebs. Right? Only took 3 incidents to get him tossed from SF. Don’t forget that. St Jim made the choice to ignore his own hubris regarding domestic violence. And don’t say it wasn’t his choice. If he had any balls he would have benched RayMac.

    Poor Spitty. Feeling ignored again?

    Kappy? All this talk of time to throw is ludicrous when I’d say 3/4s of the sacks Colin took, there was at least one rusher unblocked. On 4 man rushes, let alone blitzes. This team had a terrible time blocking even the simplest stunts.

    Parse it how you want. The offense was shitty for many reasons. The biggest problems were bad blocking and ineffective play calling. When 3 or 4 teams say they know what’s coming based on formation, well, your offense has been exposed. The trend was sinking. You think we’d be better off with the Roman offense? Please. Roll another one. Harbaugh relied on the defense. Why don’t you guys see this? Turning a blind eye to that is the biggest issue with this site. That and the pass St Jim gets for all the problems he himself created. As in “I like turmoil.’ He averaged what, 20th in yards his 4 years here? Hmmm, some offense.

    The biggest reason Mark Jackson was canned was his problems interacting with the front office. He felt that since he was winning somer games, he could call every shot. He lived in LA to tend to his flock (whatever), and he pissed off everyone in the building with his arrogance and attitude. Barring Jerry freaking Logo from your own practices is real smart. I think it’s funny that he is now broadcasting the very team he was canned from. Hey maybe when harbs wears out his welcome in Michigan, he’ll be broadcasting Niner games.

    If he is not the one then trade for high picks. He is still a work in progress and maybe a better staff can unlock it.

  102. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit – All Chuck does is makeup stuff to support his narratives. Chuck makes up facts, or things he represents as facts, and he makes up usernames to support those erroneous claims so others start to feel, “Well, if three different guys feel that way, it must be true.” Unbeknownst to users of his blog, it’s all Chuck saying the same thing four different ways, through six different users. But the sad part for Chuck is that his game’s over… he’s been exposed and it’s a long time coming. Chuck’s blog is done. Sure, Chuck will try to pump life into his blog by having Nipper (Chuck), make quick comments for hits, and alleycat (Chuck again), will chime in. Then Lurker John (Chuck) will add something and away Chuck’s blog will appear to go. And Winder, because he agrees (right now) with most of what Chuck has written, will blog there. Berger will continue to occasionally blog there because Berger is the ultimate Republican – thinking that if he says good things about the establishment, and plays the company man, he’ll get table scraps, believing that trickle down economics actually works. Berger, despite all the evidence of a poor owner and leadership from on high, will forever praise Jed York, and that’s not the daily dish here at Skeeber’s site of twisted tortures.

    NJ will also continue to blog at Chuck’s dead blog because NJ is Forrest Gump and Forrest will blog anywhere, and with anyone. Shut up, NJ. But one truth remains and that’s that Chuck’s narrative is wrong (Harbaugh was bad, and Jed and Trent were right), and that’s killing Chuck’s blog while his antics are making Chuck the blogger simply marginalized and irrelevant. Personally, I love it. It’s a show worth watching, but not participating in…..

  103. winderNo Gravatar says:

  104. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Winder – I think what I’m saying (writing) is pretty clear. If you don’t have a problem with multiple user names, to each their own. I’m certain Alleycat, Lurker John and Touchdown Tommy are Chuck. Nipper, just the other day, wrote “He’s been Knighted… Sir Spitblood from Geneoushire.” Then a few days later Chuck edited Nipper’s comments to something more derogative. However, V said that Chuck would edit other people’s comments, so maybe Nipper is real and Chuck just edits his comments. But I doubt it. I think Nipper and Snnark, Alleycat, Lurker John and Touchdown Tommy are Chuck. This is why, literally months ago, Grump called Chuck “Sybil.” I understood it, and tolerated it, but the more I look at it now, it’s just sad.

    Winder – if you want to blog with one guy with twenty-seven different user names, I commend you. It’s like volunteering at the insane asylum on a daily basis. You’re a good man.

    Ray McDonald probably has brain trauma. That’s the thing that so many people aren’t realizing. It’s like soldiers coming back from the Vietnam war with PTSD. So many of us don’t like the soldier / football player analogy, especially on Memorial Day, but the analogy, in this case, holds true. Soldiers coming back from war, for years, didn’t get the right diagnosis or treatment. They still aren’t today. However, America’s response is getting better because we’ve cut through the denial and are motivated to help our soldiers because the cost of doing nothing outweighs the cost of letting mentally ill warriors roam the streets – see Vietnam War. Plus, it’s just the right thing to do and despite increased cynicism, America is still capable of doing the right thing.

    However, unlike America, these NFL wounded warriors aren’t being taken care of because the NFL has no incentive to take care of guys like Gary Plummer (and don’t tell me the recent settlement is enough, because it ain’t for future players). What about the criminals in the NFL who retire, then die and have their brains examined? Will the NFL go to great lengths to hide the OJ Simpson brain examination after he’s dead? I wouldn’t be surprised. But the NFL absolutely is liable for turning out unstable warriors onto American streets. Think about Ronald Goldman and his family. Remember the father and sister? Dad had a righteous mustache…. all waxed ‘n shit. But I digress. What was I writing about? Oh yeah…

    On a more positive note, at least America is starting to treat our returning soldiers with the respect and care they deserve. PTSD is no longer labeled as “Shell shock,” and the prescription is no longer, “Man up.” Advantage society. I don’t have the same faith in the NFL. It’s in the NFL’s best interest to not only research transparently, turning over the findings to the press and independent scientists, but also for the NFL to help it’s future former players who aren’t apart of this recent settlement? Why? Chris Borland.

    Ted Johnson, Gary Plummer, Junior Seau and so many others got hit the hardest. Common denominator? Linebackers. No wonder Borland retired. And right after the recent settlement that helped past players, but not limited liability to future players. Borland will be the first of many if the NFL doesn’t start taking responsibility for guys like Ray Mac, even if Ray Mac wasn’t their doing. But dollars to donuts Ray McDonald is also dealing with head trauma issues. Unfortunately for Ray Mac, he’s about twenty years too early regarding sincere NFL help – if the issue doesn’t bury the NFL entirely.

    NJ says: “Don’t compare PTDS to the NFL. It ain’t even close.”

    Man, is NJ that stupid? First of all, I wasn’t comparing PTSD to the NFL. I was comparing PTSD to CTE. I was comparing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder to Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE).

    And, just for those scoring at home with IQs anywhere, say 50 points higher than NJ’s – PTSD and CTE are very much alike.

    Take, for instance, the lack of diagnosis, or proper diagnosis, in the last twenty years. PTSD was commonly called “shell shock,” and CTE was commonly mis-diagnosed or called “Punch Drunk.” And look at the symptoms. Both disorders have very similar symptoms: Anxiety, depression, confusion, aggression, inability to focus and suicidal thoughts and actions. These are symptoms for people suffering from both PTSD and/or CTE.

    In addition, as if there wasn’t enough evidence already to show very strong similarities between the two, some soldiers even return home from war with CTE AND PTSD. Can you imagine? CTE is physical, and PTSD is more mental, but soldiers do experience CTE as well, with severe blasts near the head creating not just mental but physical trauma as well.

    The one difference between the two is that you can diagnose PTSD while the soldier is still alive. With CTE, the diagnosis is post mortem. This is why the NFL isn’t standing behind its players after they retire, and they’re trying desperately to limit future liabilities…. but it won’t work.

    Anyway, once again NJ is shown the door… which isn’t any big deal for those of us living in Geneoushire.

    It’s a residual ailment.

    NJ – Your gibberish is predictable. It doesn’t matter why people enlist. Nor does it matter why Jesus decides to gift certain people with athletic abilities far superior to others (but my guess is to karmically compensate for years of slavery). So in short, how they got there doesn’t matter. Hero or coward makes no difference to PTSD or CTE. Football player, soldier, retard in New Jersey… it doesn’t matter. What matters is how we treat them after they’ve been exposed to physical or mental brain trauma, and that, NJ, is a perfect tribute (the discussion) to those who’ve gone before us, fighting for our flag and our country on Memorial Day. In my opinion, there’s no better way to honor our fallen soldiers than by helping to insure those who do return are well taken care of.

    Yep NJ I’m not sure what’s going on. Odd for me because I enjoy both of you guys.

    Back on Blog X when the ‘trade Jimi to CLE’ came out I was on the side that supported Hendrix and was pissed at FO/Balkey/York and you and 12th were on the other side. I got over it when the dice rolled the other way and Jimi was dumped. Don’t see any point in personalizing the past conflict with any bloggers. Clearly I’m not happy with Yorks handling of this situation and am not real optimistic for our likelihood of a successful team right now. But the coaching changes are done (just like the freaking Iraq 2 war) and this is what we are.

    Not going to fight about the past.

    Phil I’m not oblivious to reality.
    Whether Jim, his agent or, Jed promoted the Cleveland trade, we certainly can’t know.

    I relish 9er fever.
    Pro, and Con.

    If we’re not passionate in our beliefs, we’re lemmings.

    I’ve attempted to remain ‘grey’ as I’m not the extremist sort to begin with.

    I’m a fervent 9er fan.
    Been that way most of my life.

    Jed inherited control of passion.
    I didn’t vote him in.
    I didn’t have a choice.

    I’m attempting to whistle past the graveyard while he tries to figure it out.

    Fandom is passion.
    If you’re not passionate, you’re not a FAN.

  129. NJ49ERNo Gravatar says:

    There’s no fight here IMO.
    We each have a mind, a view, an opinion.

    It varies.

    Jed calls the shots.
    As did Eddie.
    Walsh, as we know, was genius material.

    Every team seeks such vision, even today.

    Whether Jim had it, or not, is open for debate.

    I follow the team for 1 simple reason.
    Spirit for success.

    If you’re not attached in those sentiments, you’re not invested.
    I want passion.

    I understand rebellion.
    I’ve protested Ownership.
    I’ve called for change.

    Jed trumps Dr John IMO.
    How much power does he actually have?
    Does Dr Daddy or Mommy run this franchise?

    We’re stuck.
    I’m not giving up, plain and simple.

    I swing until I’m dead.

    BTW the PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress D/O) diagnosis is a Psychological one with physical, mental and emotional symptoms = Due to exposure to “deadly situation or fear of being killed in one”. I paraphrase.

    Looks like the CET diagnosis is a medical one discoverable upon autopsy. It’s not a psych diagnosis. Physical trauma.

    I guess you could get PTSD if say Ray McDonald landed on you and knocked you out during a game. “OMG I’m dying!” I suppose the CET diagnosis would come after years of head trauma like Borland didn’t want and Seau suffered from.

    It’s a fine line and both are very bad. PTSD is receiving lots of attention due to so many soldiers affected and new treatments being developed. This is a good thing. Some will be freed of symptoms completely. In our culture of continual war we need to care for our warriors at the very least. “Freedom isn’t free” is more than a cliche.

    Football maybe has more CET injuries due to the nature of the game esp. for linebackers. What a price.

  148. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    There were a lot of things going on last year that lead to Kaep’s relatively bad year. It wasn’t just poor offensive line play.

    Let me preface this by saying that I’m a Kaep fan, but to be fair, I was also an Alex Smith fan for Alex’s first three or four years in the league and that wend sideways, fast.

    Kaep last year experienced a perfect storm, which sounds a lot like “The Kaep Apologist.”

    First Harbaugh was trying to transition away from his dependence on Frank Gore to a more pass oriented offense – at least to a more balanced attack (because of Gore’s age). And while doing this, Harbaugh and Kaep’s receivers weren’t very good. I’ll forever contend this – Vernon Davis simply wasn’t trying in 2014. Celek, Vance and Carrier were all hurt so Harbaugh had to start Vernon, and Vernon wasn’t looking back for passes and he was intentionally missing blocks. If Kaep has two or three guys running routes for him, and one isn’t trying (Vernon), the odds are pretty high Kaep’s going to end up running for his life. And what about Crabtree, Stevie Johnson and Brandon Lloyd? Crabtree clearly wasn’t the same cat as he was pre Achilles. Brandon Lloyd was a one trick pony in that he could run a relatively deep route and sky for the football, often making acrobatic catches, but too bad he was about as durable as fine China. And Stevie Johnson was so good Buffalo unloaded him on a clueless Baalke for 4 million a year – only for Baalke to jettison him a year later. Anyone think Stevie Johnson was worth 4 million a year? Ever? Was Blaine Gabbert worth 2? Ever? I digress.

    It’s only obvious or fitting that Boldin would become Kaep’s primary and most trusted receiver in 2014 because everyone else was hurt, too new to the team to make a difference or simply not trying because of monetary issues.

    Despite my disdain for anything Chuck, the offensive line was also very injured. Kilgore, Iupati and Anthony Davis were all hurt, with Alex Boone a lot rusty to begin the season. And Johnathan Martin was horrible, despite Harbaugh trying desperately (and admirably) to resurrect Martin’s career from the Great Incognito Bullying Incident.

    And then there’s the Deion Sanders distraction that didn’t help anyone.

    1.) Offensive philosophy designed to shift away from an older Gore to a passing threat without receivers.
    2.) Vernon not trying.
    3.) Injured offensive line.
    4.) Jed York inexcusably creating distractions and undermining the head coach.

    I’m no longer a 49er fan, but I know one thing – Kaep is still developing and Jed York and Trent Baalke know absolutely nothing about how to develop a qb. Kaep’s best chance or hope is to leave SF in a trade or be outright dumped by the front office and find a home with an owner who knows how to support a young qb. Jim Tomsula? Yeah… how’s that workin’ out for ya?

    Qb’s get too much of the praise and too much of the blame. But when they’re young, it’s the organization job to give them too much of the praise and shelter them from the blame until they are strong enough to take on all comers. Kaep should do everything in his power to leave SF… because the next ten years are gonna suck.

  154. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    If Kap can shorten his throwing motion, speed up his release, read a defense, get plays off on time. develop some touch on short throws, hit the 4 yard pass then he may have a good year.

    Spits analysis looked pretty good to me. Doesn’t look like he’s blaming Kap at all. But Kap needs to improve in the areas I mention. Yes the OL needs to perform and actually practice/play together rather than ‘working on something’ individually. So far the right side, Davis and Boone, are not doing that. We’re going to have a new left guard and maybe new center. Zone blocking scheme is being installed this season.

    A solid OL will make Kaps job a lot easier and he needs to have a good/better year for us to have a good season. Both need to happen. Last year neither really did and the OC took the heat. Now ‘everybody’ got their wish with new OC, QB, WR coaches not to mention Tommy boy.

    The comments below that article I posted discuss the limitations of looking at just one stat to judge a QBs performance. But the stat is relevant = Kap needs to improve as above. Can he do it? Can he do it here? Can anyone?

    As usual we’re going to find out on the field in games. A lot of scrutiny will be on the O, the OL, and the QB play. That will be the focus for many of us this year unless the D completely falls apart.

  155. phil fanNo Gravatar says:

    Whose our Center? Good analysis of Marcus Martin vs D Kilgore:

  156. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    I think Kaep just got lucky. Like Alex he is hanging around long enough to eventually get it. Draft and FA QB prospects next year are not enough to risk starting over with a new learning curve.

    Need top draft prospects and need to stop wishing on mid to late round home runs for WR1 and Willis ILB successor. Let OC and Tomsula fill in and go back to their previous jobs in 2016.

    Lots of young talent on D and OLine need one year of seasoning so top ten pick seems a lock. UDFA WR are nothing more than a remote dream and political cover to throw off the dogs this season. Smelter replaces Boldin as a possession WR2.

    Up to TB to make the final step.

  157. Unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Spitty, Smith is at least a speed guy. Boldin hopefully has one more good year in him. Ellington and Patton have shown sporadic effectiveness.

    Running faster developing plays will help. Slants and screens. Chip and dump in the flat with Hyde and Hunter. Westbrook, uhhh Bush, even.

    Our passing game schemes didn’t change during the Harbaugh era. More of Sing’s problem of “here’s what we’re going to do. Stop it.” They did.

    Spelling is all you got, Bullit? The sign of a guy (?) with no clue. Weak sauce, skippy.

Luke saves his friends from Darth York and returns to the Degobah System to find in YodaBaugh’s stead, well … a Dago…. DagoSula. Unfortunately DagoSula wouldn’t know the subtleties of sword play if he was asked to find his ass in the dark with two light sabers. In addition, DagoSula has a wookie as his offensive coordinator, and any hopes of this offense making the jump to hyperspeed are somewhere between DagoSula and Yodabaugh, and Yodabaugh left town….

    “Eddie was very similar to his nephew. The biggest difference between the two was the Bill Walsh hire. Walsh turned a dogs hit team into a champion.”

    Can anyone please tell me how does this fool have his own site and how he’s allowed to continue posting here? I understand the Bergers, Nippers and the rest of those clowns who post on his site who actually think they’re having an intelligent conversation would also get on the next plane with Jim Jones and drink a nice, frosty, glass of Kool-Aid with him but come on.

    Eddie and his history-making ownership with the 49ers put his blood and soul into his football team and assembled the best minds in the business and Unca_Chuck thinks there’s no difference between Eddie and Jed who’s just a front man, poster boy for the criminals who pull his strings.

    Randy Cross “He was the most dominant NFL owner ever!” Eddie was the ultimate “player’s owner,” he was renowned for giving his players first-class accommodations while taking an interest in their lives away from the field and Unca_Chuck thinks the only thing holding Jed back from joining Eddie in the HOF is Bill Walsh, lol!!!

    Everything he did was first-rate, the way we traveled is the way we played,” said Ronnie Lott once said. DeBartolo setup an annuity for safety Jeff Fuller after he lost the use of his arm on a vicious collision, would John, Denise or Jed do that? Don’t make me laugh! Eddie went the extra mile for the Niners he wasn’t complacent and he surely didn’t just put on an act as if he cares like the York’s. Have you noticed with Unca_chuck like Alex Smith it’s never anyone fault and no ones ever held accountable? He once told me Alex Smith on those old 49er teams and we would’ve still won those Super Bowls. You tell him that you can’t win without a great QB and he’ll bring up Trent Dilfer miracle that happened once to try and prove his mindless belief you just can’t win with this fool.

    It was crazy how much love Eddie had for his players and how much he really cared about winning. If any of you believe like Unca_chuck that Jed lack of success is due to him not having Walsh you need professional help! Walsh as great as he was with the York’s would’ve failed without money and conviction of winning that Eddie brought to the table. If you don’t believe that the culture had changed when John York stepped in you and unca_chuck can all hold hands, travel down the yellow brick road together singing, “We can be so clever if we only had a brain, doo doo da doo da doot!”

Plan B free agency came about from him as well, and many other rules enacted to curb spending and stashing players.

  170. ReddingRexNo Gravatar says:

    Unca_chuck, I understand that you mindlessly believe that the York’s are right up there with the Robert Kraft’s of the world and things just happen on there own. You also believe that winning doesn’t come from the top of an organization it could start from the bottom like the York’s, or the middle, lol!!!! Look Bozo Walsh, Montana, Lott, Rice and everyone else you say you love wouldn’t have been assembled here without Eddie the guy you call a Criminal! I understand it useless trying to have an intelligent conversation with you when you have no problem throwing Montana under the bus oh just after he won us four Super Bowls! Yes that person who you refer to as a criminal was at the very top of our organization pulling the strings of the team at it’s success that you blindly say you love while having no clue how it happened.

    Don’t get made at that person you call a criminal because he spent his money to assemble the best people in sport to make sure his vision came true and to put a smile on your face when you finally took that lollypop out of your mouth. Like any sport before Liberals get a hold of it, the best competition is when owners are allowed to spend freely and force the competition to either open their wallets and come up to their level or lose every year. You blame the Salary Cap, Free Agency on Eddie and Jerry Jones when it’s your liberalism that allowed complainers like Georgia Frontiere Owner of the Rams to get away with it! She went to the league and cried foul that her and others couldn’t compete with the big boys. That brought us the Salary Cap you big, dumb, Tree! Remember “Everyone’s A Winner” your kind seeks and destroys anything that’s good in America.

    This game that’s now close to Flag Football that you’ll embrace without a peep! Is what happens when you limit free spending and open competition. Instead of forcing teams to be the very best like the 49ers and the Cowboys you bring everyone down to it’s lowest level. Now there are no rivalries, no one hates anyone they hold hands and kiss after games because they don’t care about the sport any more it’s all about money. The days of Ken Norton’s hitting the Rams Goalpost saying, “SAME OLD SORRY ASS RAMS” is OVER! When you try and appease losers this is what you get it a watered down version of the sport you once watched in manly fashion. Now you get a non-violent, non-impact sport that it’s now become today. I often wonder why am I even bothering discussing this issue with a Clown like you who hasn’t even noticed the game has changed.

    What Unca_chuck fails to understand is if any one of us took over a franchise like the 49ers and witnessed and loved your uncle and what he accomplished the first thing we would do is keep his standards and traditions alive. Yes Chuck this means the WCO that you now magically embrace but when I brought it up years ago you laughed and said no one runs it anyone. Sorry but to the contrary many teams still run a form of the WCO it’s just in your silly world anything now goes. Yes standards and tradition really don’t mean that much to you unless it goes along with your whacky views so you can try and prove a point.

    Watch Steve Mariucci talk about the WCO and his reaction on why the 49ers don’t run the WCO anymore. It’s unbelievable! Please anyone who believes Jed is Eddie reincarnated needs to seek some serious help along with the guys who follow unca_chuck on his Blog! A person concerned about, winning, tradition, standards and legacy of a family member would never take us so far away from the WCO and especially replace it with Jimmy Raye’s rinky dink, gimmick offense! Watch Mariucci’s reaction it’s priceless! Sorry Jed is a loser and always will be and let it be known he surely is no Eddie like Unca_chuck would like to have you all believe.

    “Oh Miss spelling bee” was V, you dimwit.

    Speaking of V, the current coaching staff IS stressing zone blocking and the WCO. St Jim certainly didn’t. And Eddie was busted for trying to bribe an ex gov for a liquor license. He is the reason Jed runs the team now. All your blubbering won’t change that.

    How about talking football, Bullit? The spelling bee is over.

    Thanks NoFear49er.
    I’ll certainly check it out.

    The irony in this, is that Rick survived, against all odds in Vnam, only to depart this life in his civilian capacity.

    My Buddy called him a remarkable Man who, in the end, more or less predicted 9/11.

    My Buddy said they passed briefly in the stairwell that morning, to verify head count.
    My friend heading down, Rick heading up, continuing his efforts to aid others.

    As the story suggested, WTC Security advised everyone to remain in the building.

    Rick acted to evacuate those entrusted to him.
    His decisive actions saved numerous lives that day.

    A phenomenal legacy.

    Well Tom B to continue the discussion regarding Kap:

    -The “under pressure” article I posted has him ranked right next to Andy Dalton and Mark Sanchez = 26th out of 37 QBs.

    And here’s a further discussion on the same topic that presents the other side of the argument:

    Comments below the article are about evenly split between those who say it was the OL and the injuries on O and those who blame Kap. Myself I think it was both FWIW.

    Unca_chuck what about Leonard Little drove drunk through a red light and crashed into a vehicle, killing a mother of two children. Gene Atkins was arrested for firebombing a former business partner. What about Ray Lewis who was tried for murder and aggravated assault. We can’t forget your favorite Michael Vick who hosted a dog-fighting ring. Remember Vick and his friends killed dogs in an inhumane fashion? Let’s not forget Rae Carruth who hired two hit men to conduct the execution-style murder of his pregnant girlfriend. Jim Dunaway was charged with the murder of his former wife and Nate Newton got caught in Louisiana with 213 pounds of marijuana. What about your buddy Aldon Smith. Ahmad Brooks, Culliver? Do you want me to mention more? Let me guess they all get a free pass but Eddie who did so much for our team and the city does one thing wrong and he’s labeled a criminal in your upside down world, right? Yeah he’s labeled right along side of these murderers! Let me guess Chuck you never did anything wrong, right?

    Oh I’m sorry Chuck or should we just call you Mr. Happy Trigger, Conviction, holiest of holy Man? Paul Tagliabue formally suspended Eddie in 1999 from league activity for one year, and fines him $1 million when the Nazis Regime took over professional football. Tagliabue set an example with Eddie and it was pretty clear to see that he would be addressed under the new SS ruler ship of the NFL. If this didn’t happen John, Denise and your little buddy Jed wouldn’t have been here to destroy our dynasty. Regardless Eddie never told John, Denise and Jed to sit on their Asses and not make one winning move for 15 years! Remember responsibility? I know no ones ever held responsible unless they’re being used to justify your whacky views of the world.

  187. ReddingRexNo Gravatar says:

    All any real 49er fan needs to see is this side-by-side comparison of Kaepernick and Wilson to see just how far we have fallen off the integrity ladder. Like Montana Russell Wilson is all class while Kaepernick’s thug status is now fully embraced by fans that should hold some kind of standards regardless of the free for all, anything goes environment Jed has now installed here.

  189. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Awesome win by the Warriors. But they’ve got a lot to work on if they want to win it all.

    1.) If you watched the Warriors all season long, they dominated teams, routinely making the 4th quarter a foregone conclusion. That’s nice; however, it doesn’t help you learn how to close-out games as a team. Tonight we saw Curry hoisting jumpers and 3 balls when he should have been keeping possession of the ball and running out the clock. And Steve Kerr needs to do two things: He needs to create “run out the clock” plays, and he needs to create some “trap beaters,” because the Cavs run great trap plays.

    2.) To me, that aspect alone makes it a hard series for the Warriors. It’s not like the Warriors can prepare for traps and running out the clock plays against a team that’s great at it at this point in the season. Sure, Kerr has the experience and the know how, but that’s different than actually going up against the Cavs in the final two minutes of a game, trying to close it out. I think the Finals goes 7, with the Warriors being in control of at least 4 games, which means they should win. If they lose the NBA Finals, it’ll be because they don’t know how to close out games.

    3.) Klay Thompson needs to play better. I know he was guarding Harden and that’s a lot like Buster Posey’s numbers behind the dish vs his numbers at first base. Kerr did take Klay off Harden and Thompson played better offensively, but for the Warriors to win it all, Klay needs to be effective on both ends of the floor. Maybe getting his bell rung will improve his game. He needs to play defense and he needs to consistently hit from the floor.

    4.) Draymond Green is a stud. He’s won everywhere he’s gone, and if I’m the Warriors, I make signing Green a priority over signing Klay Thompson. I know Klay’s signed, and it’s Curry and Green who need deals, but my priorities are Curry and Green over Curry and Klay.

    5.) Mark Jackson didn’t get fired because of his homophobic comments. Or, let me phrase that another way: Mark Jackson’s most egregious shortcoming as a coach wasn’t his comments or beliefs about gays. His biggest problem as a head coach was that he didn’t know how to play the match-ups. Mark Jackson was often quoted as saying, “It’s crunch time and when I used to play I hated it when my head coach would pull certain players out of the game on defense, etc.” Then Jackson would leave certain players in who had no business being in with the particular matchups on the floor, and the Warriors would lose big games. It’s no coincidence that Jackson hasn’t been hired by other teams as their head coach. Jackson stunk. Tonight, Iguodala was guarding Harden, and when it came time for the Rockets to foul, Kerr put Livingston on Harden and pulled Iggie who really had a masterful defensive game against Harden who turned the ball over like crazy (might have even set an NBA playoffs record for turnovers). But Jackson wouldn’t have made that move. Jackson would have recognized the great game Iggie played, and kept Iggie in there risking a Rockets’ comeback hacking Iggie who isn’t good from the line.

    6.) Didn’t Flying V make a joke about 14 millionaires sitting at home watching the NBA Finals? How’s that workin’ out for ya, V?

    7.) Finally, Jed York. Hey Jed: Don’t look now but Bay Area sports fans have other options than the crap you’ve routinely fielded pre and post Harbaugh. Go Dubs. Go Giants. Jed. York. Blows. Goats.

  190. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    If you want to coach anywhere at a major level you need to maintain a neutral stance and can’t use your position as a pulpit..
    Just my opinion but once Mark Jackson publicly went against same sex marriage it was over for him.

  191. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit – I agree with what you’re saying, but I remember how it went down. During the playoffs last year it was obvious Mark Jackson didn’t have the goods. Mark Jackson was Mike Singletary. After it was a foregone conclusion Jackson was done because the team had moved past Jackson’s skills as a head coach, then the gay comments came out. And honestly, I look at Jackson’s comments as a way to protect his stock as a coach. Instead of people saying, “Jackson sucks as a head coach,” people were saying Jackson was fired because he’s against gays. I thought it was weak of Mark Jackson, and, again, the question remains – why hasn’t Mark Jackson been hired by someone else out there? Certainly there are other owners who have the same religious beliefs as Mark Jackson. If it was just about his comments, why hasn’t Mark Jackson been hired by a team in the bible belt? Hell… Jackson’s comments might bring in more people in Kansas or Texas. The ultra liberal Bay Area wasn’t the place for Jackson and his beliefs, but there are other places in the country that would love Jackson for his comments – and it would sell tickets. Why hasn’t Jackson been hired there? It’s because Jackson sucked as a head coach. “There goes that man?” There goes that chump…

  192. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Simply put, Bullit. Do you believe, if Mark Jackson hadn’t made those comments about gays, or didn’t have his beliefs about gays, that Jackson would still be coaching the Warriors? I don’t. Mike Singletary wore a cross, too. They both sucked as head coaches.

  193. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    MJ’s stance on Gays was the tipping point.
    Banning Jerry West from the practices is not a good idea because he’s on the executive board and he needs to go to practice because he’s a minority owner of the team.
    Mark Jackson’s extracurricular activities with his assistant coaches and the drama with Scalabrine and Earmann also led to his dismissal. Like I said when you are so paranoid about your job that you refuse to hire competent assistants because you fear they’ll replace you, you already have one foot out the door.

  194. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    I do not think in professional sports you can get away with a coach with anti gay sentiments on the record.
    If nothing else the advertisers won’t allow it.
    Don’t forget who gave Michael Sam a chance. St Louis Rams and Dallas Cowboys located in the Southern Baptist Bible Belt.

  195. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit – Did you watch Warriors’ games last year? I did. Do you know what the dumbest thing in all of sports was last year? It was Mark Jackson’s designed plays he’d run when the Warriors were clearly a run and gun team. The Warriors wanted to get out and run and score 120, and Mark Jackson, because that was the way he played with the Pacers, wanted to play half court basketball. Jackson was a terrible fit, and bad coach. And that, not his comments about gays, is why Mark Jackson isn’t coaching the NBA now. The Pelicans are looking for a head coach, and guess who’s rumored to be the front runner there? He’s a commentator with TNT. But it’s not Mark Jackson. It’s Jeff VanGundy. Why not Mark? Because with the Warriors, Mark Jackson was regularly out-coached and the team under-performed in Jackson’s tenure.

    And that’s a good point about Micheal Sam, but the bible belt is still going side with Mark Jackson over Fisher or Jerry Jones. What’s easier to sell in the bible belt? Jesus, or tolerance? “I’ll text Jesus for 500, Alex.” In fact, I’ll take Jesus every day of the week and twice on Sunday even though his pops told us to rest that day. It’s Jesus by a landslide.

  196. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    “I’ll ‘take’ Jesus….

  197. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    I did watch the W’s last, year and every year for the last 45.
    Last year the team was an iso team when they went half court.
    One on one.
    Their saving grace which allowed them to win as many games as they did was they played tough D.
    Other teams know how MJ acted behind the scenes. Usually no owner wants to deal with that and that’s why he still not employed as a coach.
    I still don’t get how Mark Jackson was a minister and then got involved with a stripper who was blackmailing him with compromising photos.

  198. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah, I agree with you but I think I’m a little more skeptical of Jackson’s skills as a head coach, but that’s neither here-nor-there, anymore. I do think that Jackson’s antics keep him from coaching, but I also think it’s a lot more than just gays and paranoia. Look at Harbaugh. Harbaugh’s a nut case. He’s certifiable, and he’s not ashamed to stand behind the criminals he had on the 49ers (with the one exception being those convicted of domestic violence), but despite all of Harbaugh’s ridiculousness with refs and media and front office relationships, Harbaugh still has a job and will after Michigan because, as a coach, he’s got the goods.

    Now with Mark Jackson, there’s a smaller resume – smaller body of work – but owners know. They know when the risk isn’t worth the reward. Mark Jackson’s a different kind of lunatic than Harbaugh, but if you try to slow down a team that’s a championship caliber runner, and you can’t play the matchups, AND you’re bananas, you aren’t gettin’ re-hired. Phil Jackson could use his platform to speak out against what the Jews are doing to Palestinians and then be named the head coach of the Jewish Olympic basketball team…. because Phil’s got like 11 rings.

  199. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    I hate PC brownshirts.

    You can’t get hired if the brownshirts frown on your “speech”. You can’t get hired if you’re accused of domestic violence either. Accused, mind you, not tried and convicted.

    No need to wonder how so many “witches” got put to death from the dark ages till, uh, now. I imagine the public condemnation was pretty similar to the growing flocks of terrified sheeple we see at work today. Idiots then, idiots today.

    NoFear: Would you let your daughter have drinks with Bill Cosby?

  201. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    I said it weeks ago the Giants should start Duffy. Kid’s got starter potential.

  202. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Nor you. Hardly the same thing. I don’t force anybody to fire or not hire you or Cosby.

  203. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    It absolutely is the point. What you are claiming is that everyone is innocent until proven guilty, and it pisses you off when the process isn’t respected. You’ve said or implied that repeatedly. But there’s a litmus test to everything. If you wouldn’t let your daughter have drinks with Cosby, you’re saying “respect the process but I don’t believe he’s innocent.” Therefore, you yourself like the idea of respecting the process when others are at risk (like the 49ers) but when Cosby comes a knockin’ F the process and lockup your daughters. Because you yourself, even if you don’t want to admit it, recognize the process has holes and it exposes others to risk. Guess it’s okay for the other guy to be exposed, but not you.

  204. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Please tell me you’re bright enough to know the difference between personal assessments and judgments by individuals employing their own moral code and set of ideals and judgments of the state which carry grave consequences.

    What you’re arguing is that personal judgments and trendy whims should be substituted for official judgments of the state along with your own set of consequences without any defense for the accused.

  205. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    What you just said was a bunch of jibberish, no offense. You’re in the shire now. You have to pickup your game. It’s a lot like O’Reily’s “No Spin Zone,” which will make you ten points dumber if you watch.

    What you fail to recognize, Mr Fear, is that in today’s world the time between arrest and conviction can take literally years. There are entire think tanks all over the world dedicated to creating ways to string-out or lengthen the trial process. Arrest to arraignment can take months. Arrest to conviction can literally take years. Lawyers, appeals… cases and being thrown out and retried? And what about when the guy who has money to give to the courts instead of the lawyers? Hell, that’s a win for everyone… except the guy on the street who has to bump into the rich unscrupuli after he’s weaseled his way out of a conviction, or bought, bought his way out of a conviction. No doubt the NFL could lean on the good folks in the Santa Clara’s DA’s office. The NFL has some coin… and some influence.

    Convicts and crimals, lawyers, judges…. they are all great at postponing and finding out what’s best for the state and lawyers in the long run. Most of the time the process could careless about the actual act of justice.

    So entities like sports teams, businesses and especially families have to think for themselves. Trust the process? Are you kidding me? Bill Cosby has a phone book of women who’ve accused him of rape. Is the process working for Cosby’s victims? Does anyone on the planet think Cosby is innocent? It’s the exact same as Ray McDonald. Our justice system is broken. Period. I commend you for thinking it’s still the standard bearer around the world. It’s not. America’s justice system is corrupt. And the minute you recognize this, you realize the corruption exposes good people out on the streets to criminals everyday. And that’s why even you won’t let your daughter date Bill Cosby.

    What about George Zimmerman? Not the guy who owns the Men’s Warehouse. The other guy – the security guard. The neighborhood watch guy who killed Trayvon Martin. Admittedly, this is a little bit of apples and oranges, and somewhat of a rant, but that Zimmerman dude has been in like five altercations since he killed Martin. Zimmerman has a screw loose. If you don’t think every time Zimmerman is arrested for some new conspiracy against him, with a new mugshot that makes him look like he belongs in a rubber room – that when he’s arrested the judge and jury in the Trayvon Martin case don’t winch and wish they had a mulligan, then think again. White on black crime? No justice.

    What about white collar crime? What about the recent findings that five banks were manipulating currency? Each one was guilty and forced to pay millions in fines. Anyone go to jail? Nope. It must have been artificial intelligence manipulating the currency. White on black crime? No justice. White Collar crime? No justice. And if you have money like the NFL, and you can buy your way out provided it’s not murder or something short of it, there will be no justice for that criminal either- but you want a label? So what Mr Fear would like is for the arrested to run the gantlet of corrupt bureaucrats, and come out with a conviction of felon or misdemeanor before businesses can distance themselves from the individual, but Mr Fear, in the time leading up to that conviction won’t expose himself to their character.

    Allegedly now means run. If we don’t have any faith in the system or the results or the convictions, the arrest or the allegation means more than the judgement. And this is why for you, me, the 49ers, small and large businesses, and families, if someone is arrested for something, everyone runs, including you, because we all know whatever court decision that’s handed down isn’t going to have gotten to the truth or found justice. No chance.

    Fifty years ago, respect the process and give ’em their day in court. Today? If they’re simply arrested, get away from ’em for years and see if they’re arrested again.
