Washington 23, 49ers 15

The 49ers bid farewell to the 2020 season Sunday in Arizona, kindly gifting Washington with a victory which kept them in first place in the NFC East. Nick Mullens was the most generous giver, tossing a pick six and dribbling a fumble six.

Not sure about you guys, but I’ve seen enough of Mullens, quite frankly. He’s the same guy he was in 2017, 2018, and now again in 2020. A QB who does just enough nice things to whet your appetite, but mostly comes out on the short end of the scoreboard at the end of the day.

There has to be a reason  CJ Beathard never gets to play and there are only two choices: CJ is even more awful than Mullens or he’s being kept under wraps to kill his free agency appeal so he can come back next year and replace Mullens in the awful backup role.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Niner game without the usual assortment of injuries occurring, and this game was no different. In fact, Deebo Samuel got the ball rolling right off the bat on the first play of the game by roaring downfield for a nine yard gain and then limping to the sidelines with a hamstring injury. Thanks, Deebo. Great job.

The only guy who seems to be motoring along oblivious to the injury bug and ineptitude around him is Brandon Aiyuk. He had another quietly great game with 10 receptions for 119 yards. A stat that is becoming common place for him. Bullit can correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think we’ve had a 1,000 yard receiver in Ninerville for quite some time. Aiyuk has an outside chance to get there this year, but he’ll most likely become a regular next year and in the years to come.

Other than that, a wasted year for the 49ers, with a challenging offseason and uncertain future coming up in 2021. As for 2020, fuck you and the horse you rode in on.

    Wouldn’t seem complete without dinking on Shanny for punting on 4th and one late in the 4th qtr. A timid 4th qtr coach.

    This sums up this dumpster fire year 2020

    We just can’t put a 60 minute game in the books. QB is a glaring weakness and one we have to address this year. Hopefully Bosa won’t be to damaged and come back strong. Shanny not only doesn’t gamble much he also doesn’t adjust to the game very well. Our running game is not doing well and there is a reason for it.

    The missing block in the running game usually come from Kittle that springs the big chunk runs.
    I think in the analysis of the offense, the importance of Kittle has been underestimated.

    Ford and Richburg were two guys they were counting on and neither will play this year and might have played their last games as Niners.

    Yeah, i have a feeling we will see a very different team next year. I still have a lot of faith in both Shanny and Lynch. The only problem I do see is that for our game plan to work we have to have the players capable to pull it off. We need to be able to adjust our game plan on the fly. We need a QB that can throw the long ball.
