Yawning Exercises

A couple more anticlimactic days and we can finally close the book on the 2011 NFL season. And turn our attention to … golf. At least Jim Harbaugh will, since he’ll be teeing it up at Pebble Beach next week. That could be worth a look-see. Somehow, I can’t envision Jim having a whole lot of touch on the greens.

The glamour pairing of the tournament will be Tiger Woods and Tony Romo. Mr. Clutch and Mr. Choke. Tony plays golf like he plays football, great in the early going, blub blub blub on Sunday. You have to hand it to Tony, though. It takes a lot of talent to be a two sport loser.

The league okayed a $200 million input to the 49ers new Santa Clara stadium, pretty much sealing the deal on that enterprise. Ground breaking is scheduled to begin this summer. In a couple of years, the franchise will go from having the worst stadium in the league to having the best. Jed York is tearing up the league these days.

Vernon Davis has seats in Indianapolis this weekend and Michael Crabtree is in Dallas hanging with his home boys. Can we smell jealousy here? Crab has never been the second banana on a team and it might be getting to him. In the Saints game, he came up small while Vernon soared. In the Giants game, Vernon kept soaring and Crab shrunk into nothing. Maybe there’s something in the Dallas environment that stimulates gagging. This coming year is a make or break season for his tenure on the team. If he gets that far. Going into his fourth year, he has yet to participate in an offseason or TC or play in the preseason.

Come Monday, one of the Sunday QBs will be compared to Joe Montana. Ha ha ha. Next year, somebody else will be compared to Montana. Montana is the gold standard. Forget about it, East Coast wannabes. Ten years from now, it will still be Joe that everyone is compared to.

Also on Monday, I might be past my denial phase and get an idea for an actual post instead of “Oh Look, some words on the screen. Let’s skip to the comment section and get some meat.” Sigh. The only joy in my life now is deleting Albert McSpittlestink posts. Not sure if my trash bin is big enough for the garbage. I made need a terabyte upgrade.

    I’ve always been a Tom Brady fan, but for me, he’ll never be Montana. Problem is, on Brady’s first pass this week he passes Montana for yards thrown in the Super Bowl. Any way for him to have a game ending injury before he completes a pass?

    If the only joy in your life is deleting my posts, then I’ll try to make your life more joyful, ’cause really, that’s what I do – I spread joy.
    During the Raven / Niner game, Mike Mayock said that Jim Harbaugh was a good golfer. I could, however, see him breaking his putter over his knee. If he did that on telivision, I’d cry like TO in a press conference saying, “That’s my head coach,” because there is no game more frustrating than golf. Tom Watson… I am not.
    Now regarding Manning, here’s an interesting excerpt from a internet article I found recently…. ” Manning spoke about the Colts needing to draft a quarterback in 2010 and even spoke highly of a specific quarterback before this year’s draft. Peyton worked with Colin Kaepernick at last year’s Manning quarterback camp and had nothing but great things to say about him. It seemed as a no-brainer to me. The two already had built rapport and Manning was willing to mentor his replacement.” – Jason Braddock.
    Manning’s neck is fine. It’s his arm. When Manning has the arm strength, he’ll allow the cameras into some facility somewhere and he’ll throw. Then he’ll need to throw the ball around with Jim Harbaugh before the two decide to cast Alex Smith into the NFL backup dungeon where he’s belonged since Norv Turner left.

    It’s amazing how the know it all keeps shooting in the dark.
    Sign McNabb, Kolb, Hassleback
    and this offseason it’s Flynn and now Manning.
    Somebody get’s fooled by all the hype and has sucker firmly stamped on his forehead. Like to do things the Hue Jackson way.
    Overpay and get fleeced and proclaim it’s the most significant acquisition in the club’s history. Yep someone wants to do Carson Palmer Pert 2.

  5. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Stinky- I have the same injury as Peyton. Unfortunately I don’t have his money. Phil Collins, the great drummer, retired because of the same injury. I either got it from football or from falling off of too many mortorcycles and quads, or both. The injury takes the strength from your arm because the nerves run through that vertabrae. I have very little feeling in my hands and feet because of my neck injury. For Peyton, it is the neck and if the nerves don’t grow back he will never have the same arm strength.

  6. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    bullit- It is like as year ago Stinky was telling us Walter Football is a site he trusts and respects because they agreed with him. Now since they don’t agree with him he is telling us he has never liked that site.

  7. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Spitty accused me of cutting and pasting and getting info off the internet. Shocker!
    Spitty gets his advice from Ms Cleo. You can flip a coin and be right 35% more than Spitty is.
    He has mastered shameless amnesia
    and selective memory.
    And I thought by what Skeebs posted that he had been kicked out. One can only hope.

  8. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Berger – Lies, pure lies. I’ve always thought Walter Football was a joke. Regarding Manning’s arm strength, he’s already throwing and rehabbing. I know what you’re saying about nerves and motorcycles, but not only do you not have his money, but you also don’t have his doctors and his training facilities. We’re all speculating, and you see my underlying agenda of making Alice irrelevant; however, Manning wouldn’t do all of this if he didn’t think his nerves would come back and give him strength enough to compete. I think he plays.

  9. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    In 2013 . . .

  10. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Stinky- Of course he works hard to get back and play, he has 28 million reasons to fake everybody out.
    No lies, all fact.

  11. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Albert’s desperate for material. I mean, the whole anti-Alex thing is sooooo last year.

  12. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Berger – he doesn’t care about the money. He cares about Super Bowls, and he wants to play for a team that is one quarterback away from the Super Bowl. HHHHMMMMMmmmmmmmm…. what team is one quarterback away from the Super Bowl? I don’t know… there has to be one out there, right? The Jets? Nope. No cap room. The Ravens? Yeah, but Flacco did hit Lee Evans between the numbers in the end zone with under a minute that should have sealed the deal. The 49ers? Shoot, now that you mention it, they are just one quarterback away from the Super Bowl. That’s a great fit.

  13. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    If you Niner history you would know that the Morabitos sold their
    majority ownership to the Deabrtolos and there were still minority owners such as Franklin Mieuli.
    I guess Spitty apparently is ignorant about mostly everything
    football specifically 49ers.
    Like I said shameless amnesia and selective memory.

  14. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    No, it’s not. Like the Montana/Young deal in 1993, Manning would last all of 2 games before getting pounded into the PUP list. Say what you want about Smith, but he took a TON of shots this year, and popped back up every time. Manning isn’t that tough anymore. He’s 36 and coming off 3 neck surgeries.
    We get it, OK? You have a hard-on for yourself, and you hate Alex. Duly noted. Now shut the furk up about it already.

  15. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Stinky- I say we have a QB and he needs to be re-signed. Alex can deinitely win a Super Bowl.

  16. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Berger – Alex just reached the high water mark of his career. I doubt Alex ever makes it back to the NFC Championship game (as a starter). The 49ers did so many things well. Everyone’s talking about “just wait ’til next year with a full off season.” I don’t think an off season will help them get the first seed in the conference, or improve their redzone defense, or improve their takeaway ratio, or the big one is improve their health.
    This year the 49ers played as good as they could in all facets of the game (except qb), and they still couldn’t make the Super Bowl. Next year the turnover ratio will change, the players won’t stay as healthy, and the 49ers won’t go as far (unless they get a lot more horsepower at qb).
    2012 was Alex Smith’s high water mark. Enjoy it.

  17. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Stinky- I did enjoy it, too bad you didn’t. If not for a punt returner fumbling twice in the 4th quater and OT, Alex IS in the Super Bowl.
    Since you guaranteed we would not beat the Saints, why should anything you say be taken seriously?

  18. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Nazi – I loved the entire season. Recorded every game and I’ve watched several of the games several times – even the boring ones (like the Cinci game). My two favorites are the Saints and first Giant / Niner game at the Stick.
    The two fumbles would never have been an issue if Alex Smith hadn’t gone 1-14 on 3rd downs with 3 yards passing to his wide receivers in five quarters of football against the 27th ranked defense.
    Why would you take anything I say seriously? I don’t know. Why should I take anything you say seriously? Secret is, we both do, and we both don’t. If we didn’t, we wouldn’t respond. And this is why I don’t with Bullit and Unca anymore. Unca brings zero to the table.

    Einstinkle’s State of the Union:

    It looks as if the 49ers’ stadium is going to be built now that Jim Harbaugh has returned respectability to the 49er organization. The Niners now have the respect of the NFL enough to see other owners lending the Yorks large sums of money to create a larger revenue stream for everyone involved. Mark Davis is looking at LA, and so is Roger Goodell. If Mark Davis leaves the Bay Area flu shots may not be required in that region anymore, and the Niner organization could return to being the most valued franchise in the NFL. One little hire… that’s all it took. The value of the Jim Harbaugh’s hire cannot be understated. If Harbaugh is smart, he will ask for $10 a year. What does Willis make? Harbaugh importance to the city, to the stadium, and to the team is twenty times the importance of Patrick Willis. Jed York should start kissing some Harbaugh booty early. He should start “restructuring” Jim’s contract early. He should let Jim know the York family appreciates Jim and isn’t lost when the kudos go around for the new stadium coming to fruition.
    Regarding Mark Davis and LA – The only way the Raiders in LA II works is if Mark Davis changes the team’s name and identity away from swashbucklin’ pirates to a more refined name. But Mark’s love for his father will never let that happen. I’m sure Mark wants LA, but Roger Goodell will be smart about what team plays in LA this time around. What’s the smallest market in the NFL? I don’t know, but I bet it’s not Oakland. The important thing is… the new team in LA will need a fresh name like the Ravens and Titans got. And the name needs to be kinda gay… like the LA Sea Breezes.
    Regarding the 49ers, Jim Harbaugh is faced with one reality – his team needs to improve to win the Super Bowl while watching some free agents leave, and also knowing he won’t get the same breaks with injuries, turnovers and team momentum he got with his honeymoon. A sophomore slup? Who knows? But it’s widely agreed upon that the only part of this team that needs improving is the passing game. Alex Smith lovers say it’s the receivers; Smith haters claim it’s Smith. But the real objective people say both need to be upgraded, and I think that’s exactly what Jim Harbaugh will do. Harbaugh and Baalke won’t look to free agency to bring in a new wide receiver. With the NFL rookie salary cap, free agents now lose leverage (and a lot of it), because a team can draft to fill a hole for a lot less money than it did two years ago. What position will lose out the most? Wide receiver. Why? Because they’re known divas. I don’t know why. But look around the league. Who are the good-guy wide receivers? For every stand-up kid like Kyle Williams, there are twenty Crabtrees. Why not draft him and train him how to be a pro? So the 49ers will draft wide receivers. Not singular, plural. But the big question is, and always will be, despite Skeebers claiming the argument is yesterday’s news – will the same quarterback be able to get the most out of new receivers? It’s my contention that Alex Smith on a team surround with Ferraris at the receiver position is the equivalent of having a 98 year old put 87 octane in the Ferrari and drive it to the grocery store once a month using the bike path. What a waste. However, for those objective, it’ll be interesting to see if Smith can improve the team with new receiver talent – or if he’s even given the opportunity with other options like Peyton and Matt Flynn on the market. If Jim Harbaugh wants to overcome the inevitable let-down after a great season, he needs to not only improve the wide receiver play, but also the quarterback play.

    Gimme the furking cliff’s notes version, skippy.

  25. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    What’s your point, NoCheer?
    I think Goldson’s overrated, and won’t be on the team next season. He broke up 2 ints looking for a SportsCenter hit. He has no situational awareness of what is going on around him.
    Funny thing is, Smith had 2 TD passes that weren’t set up by the other team’s mistakes. NY had one. Alex Smith had the bigger plays. I’m sure you were furious when Smith led the team to their win over NO.
    You have some sort of blind hatred for any 49er QB not named Joe Montana. Yeah, Joe was great. So was Steve Young. And John Brodie. Smith? One season doesn’t make greatness, but you can’t discount the season Smith had this year. Or the fact that under Harbaugh, Smith’s QBR rose 18 points. The first time in Smith’s career he’s had a coach that understands offense.
    Go ahead. Stick your head back into the sand once the season starts, and the team hits the playoffs. Either that, or you can wallow in the self-loathing finger pointing blame game with Spitty.

  26. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Kyle Williams drops the ball on the Niner 29 and 24 in a very tight game and it’s not his fault?
    Since you are not a sports neophyte let me spell it out for you. In sports it’s all about the ending, the it’s not how you start but how you finish. Crunch time. If you haven’t grasped that yet then what can i say?

  27. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    I pointed all that stuff out 2 weeks ago, NoCheer. It doesn’t excuse Williams from mishandling 2 punts. Alex throws 2 TDs and gave the Niners the lead in the 4th quarter. After a defensive stop, Williams fumbles the ensuing punt. And you blame Smith? Of course!
    Did you watch the game? Or are you just playing stupid? Oh, that’s rught. You don’t play. BOTH defenses were playing well. Get it? Of course not. Without the short field, NY doesn’t get the 4th quarter TD. Without that, the game doesn’t go into OT.
    Your ‘analysis’ is hysterical in it’s stupidity.
    Or are you under the impression that those 10 points were inconsequential? Like I said, the one hitting KW in the leg was the really bad one. He’s GOT to know to get the hell away from a line drive punt.
    The OT one? Well, it lost the game. Plain and simple. You want to make excuses for KW? Fine. HE took it like a man. Just don’t expect to be taken seriously. If ever. If Teflon Mike was calling those plays, you’d have been creaming in your jeans.

    What a day. I was accused by the company controller of me calling him an idiot. I got called to the principals office. When they asked me about it I told them, I didn’t call him an idiot, I called him a furking idiot. That didn’t go over so well, but at least I feel better.

    Sorry to hear that. Hope things work out.
    Here’s the Harbaugh wives talking about their coaching husbands after the Chanpionship games. Lighter but interesting.


  31. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Holy crap. On this day in history, February 3rd, 2012, Unca Chuck posted something interesting on a blog. Stop the presses.

  32. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Interesting… looks like Belichick is a cheater in a couple of ways –
    Either Karma hasn’t caught-up to this guy, or maybe there’s hope for this little Stinkle…

  33. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    bullit- It wasn’t going so well but ended up great. I asked them why is it derogotory to call somebody an idiot if they are indeed an idiot. I said I’m not calling him a name, he is an idiot. They agreed with me he is an idiot but told me I can’t call him an idiot. I asked them for a better word to use. They laughed, then straightened up and started acting serious. It wasn’t about him or me, it was about I wanted him to know he is an idiot. After a while we started talking about future improvements for the company and my future promotion. I told them to let me finish my current detail in Sac and then we’ll talk about where we go from there. So I’d say it turned out OK.

  34. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Yeah, I was worried they would can you for insubordination.
    Since nobody made a federal case out of it somebody likes you.
    Look at it this way, what if Spitty were your boss? He’d meet dwith an accident Wiley Coyote style by the third day. When we see you hauling an anvil, we’ll know what’s up.

  35. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebs, Sunday is the final chance to remind NYG fans how they got there.
    With all the mileage they’ve gotten with the ‘Eli/Elite’ stuff, try this one on them.
    You can’t spell-
    ‘Very Lucky Win’ without Kyle Williams.
    Funny thing is, most of the guys I consider NYG friends agree, they were more lucky than good.
    Had we figured out how to convert on 3rd downs, we’d be the ones spending 2 weeks lapping up all this sickening SB hype.
    Fantastic Season by our guys.
    I’m looking forward to being among the Teams in the Playoff discussion for years to come.

  36. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    The Patriots were even luckier than the Giants, NJ. But that’s what happens when you’re in the mix each year. And that’s the fun of it. It’s not just about this season or one game. We’re at the beginning of a new era and the Niners will be one of the “could go all the way” teams each year.

  37. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    …. but not with Alex Smith. He’s left handed.

  38. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Agreed Skeebers. About time huh?

    You guys still want to get rid of Ted Ginn? What did I tell you before the year? A: “Remember the Niner return game after Rossum got injured and before Ginn came?”

    Keep Ted Ginn, if only for returns, unless and only unless you have a real return guy in the wings, not just a young fill-in kinda guy.

    BTW, George Mira was the Niner QB on the famous Jim Marshall play: “He’s RUNNING THE WRONG WAY! HE THINKS HE’S SCORED A TOUCHDOWN…HE’S SCORED A SAFETY!!!” Lon Simmons, best Niners/Giants broadcaster of all time. RIP, Lon, this one’s for you!

  49. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Billy Kilmer was the halfback (he split time between there and QB as a 49er) who fumbled. And 77, Bruce Bosley, is the first 49er to reach Marshall in the End Zone and “congratulate” him.

  50. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    Lon Simmons is 88 now and last I checked he was alive and kicking
    unless something happened recently.
    He was my favorite too.

  51. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    In addition to needing a QB and a stud, non-diva #1 wideout, the Niners desperately need on OG.

    Chilo is, effectively, the backup at both guards and center (when Goodwin was hurt, Snyder slid over to center). This is not good. Repeat, one injury away from “MAYDAY! MAYDAY!”.

    They also need another tackle. They have no tested good backups there. Boone may or may not turn out to be a wonderful backup, but we just don’t know.

    Kilmer wasn’t anything with the Niners, and I have my suspicions why (and it may be related to how he drove into the San Francisco Bay). He was talented, seriously injured, and “troubled” when George Allen made him a very good QB, if only for a brief career.

  52. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    Apologies for burying Lon before his time!! Good to hear! He actually lost his life savings in a real estate scam after he had retired, and that’s how he came back to broadcasting (for the A’s at least, and more I don’t remember). The poor guy’s been buried before prematurely…

  53. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    RT – I kinda disagree with your assessment of 49er needs. I think Adam Snyder is fine. He’s not lights out by any means, but he’s smart and he stays healthy and he doesn’t get overwhelmed or have bad games where the defense is just picking on him. His natural position is guard, but he has talent enough to play OT and he’s smart enough to play center. I think our offensive line is set. Contractually, I don’t think the 49ers have issues all along the O line this off season. David Kilgore is a stud. Kilgore and Mike Person were hand-picked by Mike Solari. Solari flew out to Montana State to interview and workout Person, and he had an hour long Skype interview with Kilgore. Person, Kilgore and Boone are your backups, and they’re all solid. I think the offensive line will be a great one for several years to come, and I think Baalke, McCloughan, Singletary, Harbaugh, Solari and even Nolan should all take some credit for the line coming together this season. The line will start getting notoriety and attention as being one of the best in football next season. Rachal is gone. I don’t see the 49ers drafting an O linemen this year.
    Regarding D line, we do have Ricky and Tukuafu (sp?). Tuku’s 6’4″, played at Oregon, and is almost 300 pounds. Tuk was hurt, but he did have a big INT / Fumble Recovery in the first game against the Seahawks – or was it against the Cowboys? He’ll get better, and provide depth. I do think the 49ers need to draft to replace Justin Smith, but I don’t know that they need to do it this off season.
    I believe the 49er off season needs are to re-sign secondary members and draft or acquire offensive skill position players. If the 49ers re-sign Goldson and Brooks, I could see the 49ers going heavy at the offensive skill positions in the draft, and it’s about time. But if the ball delivery system isn’t good, the players will be less effective. I’m starting to like Colin Kaepernick more and more…. Why? Because he’s cheap.

  54. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    You missed my point, Al. Snyder is fine. It’s Chilo being the #1 backup at 3 positions that bothers me. When Iaputi was hurt, Chilo did OK at LG. We know he’s the backup at RG, and that counts twice for C/RG backup, with Snyder being the backup C.

  55. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Chilo’s replacement is Kilgore. Kilgore was activated after the Baltimore debacle. Doubt Chilo returns.

    Bold prediction: if for some reason the MVP doesn’t go to Mr. President, I’m gonna go out on a limb and say Patrick Chung. Don’t be surprised if he has an INT or blocks a punt and/or kick. That is if he even plays. Patrick is listed as QUESTIONABLE. Aren’t we all?

  73. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    The guy couldn’t make it with the Niners or in the NFL and now he’s gonna be coaching WRs for the Dolphins. Remember PJ???

    They brought up this fact on the NFL Honors show last night. Niners drafted Giovanni Carmazzi in the third rouns and tha Pats took Tom Brady and the rest is history and a painful reminder as to what could’ve been.
    Carmazzi is teaching yoga in Roseville. I wonder if he taught
    Ricky Williams who took Yoga in Auburn/Grass Valley for a year before his comeback.

  74. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Hey, Skeebers. Aaron Rodgers is on the pregame show. Quick. Turn the channel.

  75. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit, not only does Carmazzi teach yoga, but he has five goats in his possession. Ask Chuck about goats one of these days. He’s well versed.

  76. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Did you guys hear the story about the Giants D-Lineman, Dave Tollefson and his Mom? It’s some funny shit. She calls him up every Sunday and fires him up by cursing at him and telling him not to be a pussy. This is what transpired earlier this year after Dave got hurt vs the Eagles. http://tinyurl.com/27n4vd7
    You got to love a Mother like that.

  77. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Jessica Simpson, with child, just said she was disappointed that the Niners aren’t playing today. I think that’s because her hubby, Eric Johnson, was our former TE. But then she followed that up by saying she was a Cowboy fan and hopes the Giants lose.
    Once you’ve boinked Tony Romo, you never go back.

  78. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I remember PJ Fleck.
    My favorite 49er fan is Marissa Miller.

  79. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    I thought Eric Johnson went to Yale and was smarter than that.

  80. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit, if I were a Democrat I would crack wise that George W. also went to Yale. But I’m not.

  81. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Eli Manning wins his second Super Bowl today… and people start to realize Eli is better than Brees and Rogers. Eli Manning is the current NFL version of Joe Montana. Dorky and cool…. I wonder if John Candy will be in the stands today.

  82. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Yeah, yer about as funny as John Candy, Spit. Well, after he died, anyway . . .

  83. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    This game comes down to the Gronker.

  84. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    You just post so much crap to cover yourself. AS usual you’re on the fence so tomorrow you can brag you were right.
    One post you say Eli Manning is going to win it and become in your fanboy eyes a greater QB than Brees and RoDger.
    Now you post it’ll come down to the Gronker, whoever the hell he is.
    More proof you don’t know jackshit about anything.

  85. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Did I ever tell you guys about the time I met John Candy? No? I can best describe it this way. It was like meeting Santa without a beard.

  86. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Del – you say 34-24, Patriots? I say 24-17, Giants. I think the score of their regular season game in Foxburough ended 24-20. I say it’s about the same game, but the Pats don’t go for the field goal late and the Giants’ D stops Brady.
    Nobody else on this blog predicts anything. They’re too worried about their credibility because they think they’ll get rich blogging. LOL! That’s funny. Who said I wasn’t funny. That’s funny. Cowards!

  87. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Moral of the story fat comics OD on drugs. John Belushi, John Candy, Chris Farley and Sam Kinison.(Kinison died in a car crash not caused by him, but autopsy showed he was coked up)

  88. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit, there is no foundation or correlation to the fact that fat comics OD on drugs. I haven’t croaked yet. 😀

  89. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    I’m not ashamed to say that I have a man crush on Tom Brady. That being said. He better give me a goddamn cabinet post when he becomes president.

  90. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    I love it. Jump on ’em early, Giants. Brady – one play in the first 12 minutes of the game.

  91. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Pretty reminiscent of Obama’s first 12 months in office.

  92. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    … or the amount of engaged brain cells Bush had during his second term.

  93. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Touché, my fellow Shimano reeler. I would have said Penn, but we both know we can’t afford that shit.

  94. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    TOUCHDOWN Mr. President at the end of the first half.
    That’s what presidents do. They deliver at the right time. Well, presidents do if they used to star in movies with a chimp.

  95. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Clint Eastwood was president? I thought he was just the mayor of Carmel. No Shimano. I’m a Galvin man, myself. 10-9 at the half. Anyone’s game. The Patriots are trying to win the Super Bowl with no defense and no running game. Oh, the NFL traditionalist will be in a tizzy.

  96. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    hmmmmm…. some smart joker was sayin’ this from day one….

  97. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Ocho Cinco with a catch! look out.

  98. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Do you guys see what the Pats are doing to start the second half? No huddle and THROW THE GODDAMN BALL!!!

  99. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Clyde, you’re “Every Which Way But Loose” funny. You know what’s really funny? Another TOUCHDOWN thrown by Mr. President. Hail to the Chief!

  100. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Game’s coming down to the wire. Someone’s defense needs to make a stop. How ’bout a turnover? Turnover could win the Super Bowl.

  101. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Just as I write that, Blackburn INT and Bradshaw fumble.

  102. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    HUGE 3rd dn conversion there by Brady backed up to his own end zone. And it went to Danny Woodhead, a WHITE player at running back. I thought the NFL outlawed that shit the same time the NBA did.

  103. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    I just have three simple rules in my life:
    1. I don’t want my RB to be white.
    2. I don’t want my NBA player to be white.
    3. I don’t want my president to be black.
    Vote for Brady in 2024!

  104. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Here’s a chance for Eli to cement himself as a REALLY great QB. Huge drive. This is exciting.

  105. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Fantastic catch by Mario. Even better throw by Eli. Eli is elite. Only Elite QBs win Super Bowls. We come up short in that dept.

  106. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:


  107. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Skeebers, I’m getting that “duplicate comment” error message again even when I haven’t posted it in the first place. Please look into that. Thanks.

  108. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    I see I was comment #111. I have a long and detailed story about the number 1,11,111 and all 1’s that follow.
    NE would be better off allowing the Giants to scoring the TD here and leaving time on the clock for TB to try and comeback.
    And they just did! Bradshaw tried and wanted to fall short, but it F’ed it up. He gave Mr. President a chance…

  109. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    If the G-Men lose, Bradshaw will be a bigger goat than my boy Kyle Williams. That was a mook move beyond belief.

  110. RufusNo Gravatar says:

    Well Skeebs. Brady’s good but he’s no Montana.

  111. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:


  112. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:


    Who wants to argue about Eli NOW?

  113. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Eli Manning – BEST QB in the NFL. Two Rings. Peyton, Drew and Aaron only have one. Tom Brady? He lost twice to Eli in the Super Bowl. Sorry, Tom. You’re no Joe.

  114. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Wow, yer 32nd choice this year as best QB, Stain.

  115. unca chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Way to get on the wagon, after the fact.

  116. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Eli Manning IS the second coming of Joe Montana.

  117. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    You finally said something funny.

  118. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Looks like Brady is Mr. Vice President.

  119. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    I have one question for anyone on this blog: Who’s better than Eli Manning?

  120. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Who cares?

  121. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    This year….No one. He wins the prize

  122. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Fact is, Our Defense was better than theirs.
    Ohhhh what could have been.

  123. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    I mean in this era. Not just this year. He’s better than Brees, Rogers and Peyton, and he’s beaten Brady twice. Nobody is better than Eli Manning. Nobody. And not just this year.

  124. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Wow, who predicted 24-17, Giants at 2:24? Man’s a geneous.

  125. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Chuck, maybe you’ll read comment as I don’t believe TF frequents Skeeber’s blog. Not only is he deleting my comments on your site, but he is now replacing them with his own words. I think, or at least I hope that you and everyone else here understands that I have a GREAT sense of humor. But I do have my limits. That bastard is committing libel with my name. I know I say some stupid shit sometime, but I’ll be goddamn if someone else says it for me.

  126. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Who cares? That blog’s like watching paint dry.

  127. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    If there is one thing I learned today it is that I need to buy some Twinkies before 12-21 just in case I survive the Mayans.

  128. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    You need yourself a Bunker and, some Guv-ment Cheese.

  129. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I’d like to know how the survivors (in those Chevy trucks), are gonna fuel up?
    Where the H3ll are they gonna go?
    Get a bunker, lots of beer and use the fuel for the generator to keep it cold.

  130. ROBNo Gravatar says:

    i predicted 27-24 giants !

    well now that the season is over , for everyone , time o focus on getting ready to make our run at the super bowl in 2012/13 !!!

  133. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Hostess is in bankruptcy? Say it ain’t so… Chocadiles? Are you kidding me?

  134. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Brady scores a touchdown before the half, then scores another TD out of the gate in the second half. But Eli overcomes it all with mistake-free football all game long. Great, great throw to Mario Manningham. One for the ages. Amazing drive to end the game. That’s quarterback play. That’s what we need in SF. Who’s our future? Colin Kaepernick? Matt Flynn? Peyton would be a stop gap. Who’s our future? It’s still unsettled in San Francisco.

  135. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    What made me laugh during that mayan/Chevy/Twinkies commercial is how Hostess sprung for the Ad dollars while in Chaper 11?
    Those Union wages are really eating at the core of their business’ operating budget I guess?
    Guess we should ship those jobs over the Rio Grande too.

  136. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I believe a solid business plan could incorporate the Mexican Pot connection and Hostess products to aleviate those munchee runs during the wee morning hours.
    Bundle them up and have the illegals bring them over with the weed.

  137. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    I just saw the Chevy commercial for the first time, and read that Ford asked Chevy to pull the plug on the commercial but Chevy refused. This should start a nice war, which will be entertaining. I love my Ford… and my Toyota, but nobody likes a cry baby. Chevy won this round. I think it’s a damn smart commercial, too. Kicked Ford right in the berries…. or chassis.

  138. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Mistake free football??? Giants fumbled 3 times and lost one but Pats had 12 men penalty. That was a sure turnover and 7 points. Two more fumbles bounced their way too.
    Which proved that last 3 games ball bounced their way.
    Better lucky than good.

  139. bullitNo Gravatar says:


    You are a simpleton.
    Why do you laugh at other people’s blog when your’s sucks to high heaven. No responses for 3 days. What a joke.

  140. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Fran Tarkenton lost three, Elway lost three, Warner and Brady lost two. But the big one – Kelly lost four. Poor Jim Kelly. I wonder if Brady gets a text message from Jim Kelly tonight.

  141. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Unca’s a “coulda, shoulda, woulda,” machine.

  142. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I was somewhat amused at the mayan commercial for having both Twinkies and the Ford ‘B-Slap’ all rolled into 1.
    Is that the 1st commercial spot to ‘Cross-Brand’ during the SB?
    Not sure I’ve ever seen that done before.
    Great strategy to share costs and grab the viewership.

  143. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Looking back at the game if Welker makes that catch the Giants might not have gotten the ball back only having to kick a FG. Welker ctahes that and Giants have to mscore a TD down by 4 inside of 2 mins.

  144. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    I’m watching the replay of the Puppy Bowl and there’s cats out on the field. Where’s my Frank the Cat? Ah, here’s Frank singing my favorite…

  145. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    And more coulda, shoulda, woulda, from Unca. Unbelievable.

  146. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    NJ, I just got through talking to Berger about that very same commercial. It was, to the best of my knowledge the first ever commercial to “Cross-Brand” during the Super Bowl. It was as AlbertEinstinkle would say, “geneous.” NO. It was beyond that. It was super-genius. If you don’t believe me, my pal Wile E. Coyote will tell ya…

  147. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Dammit! Sorry about the Frank double post. Actually, one should never apologize for Frank. Here’s my super-genius video…

  148. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    I think so also Bullit.
    That pass killed the Pats.
    Not sure if Welker slowed up or Brady overshot him.
    Tough break either way.
    Glad the NFC took the prize.
    I take satisfaction knowing we didn’t get ‘Beat’ so much as we missed our chances to win.
    That throw from Eli to Manningham tonight is very similar to what Alex made to Vernon this year.
    We need a couple of outside threats like Eli has.
    Alex will learn to make tighter throws as he becomes more comfortable with this scheme and his targets.
    At least, that’s what I’d like to see.

  149. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    I’ll tell ya’ll one thing: Albert Einstinkle is gonna to be insufferable on the blogs now that his boy Eli Manning is the best quarterback of his era. Insufferable….

  150. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    “Gonna be?” Like I was easy goin’ before?
    Beat ya’ll to it…. again.

    “AlbertEinstinkle Says:

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

    I’s stop making predictions with your mental state.

  155. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Anyway I’ll leave you all with this. Good Night!


  156. AlbertEinstinkleNo Gravatar says:

    Bullit –
    Predictions? You mean like the one I just made at 2:24 this afternoon – nailing the score and the victor? Or that Eli Manning would now be considered one of the greats after this Super Bowl? Or that the 49ers would be better than people thought (saying that before anyone else did – swaying public opinion?), or that Andy Dalton would be great and should be a first rounder, or that the so called experts were undervaluing the qb position’s importance in last year’s draft? Or that Goldson was the likely candidate for the franchise tag? Predictions like your blog ’causes extreme narcolepsy (guess that isn’t a prediction – more like fact)…… zzzzzzzzzzz…… what? … wow… just fell asleep at the mere mention of your blog… or Unca’s – it’s one in the same. If you blog here ten times a day, that effort could be put into your blog. Get crackin’. Sure, I get things wrong, like the Saints game, but that’s the fun in it. If I was right every time, I wouldn’t play golf. There’s more strength making bold predictions than there is cowering in a corner like you do, playing the “coulda, shoulda, woulda,” game – thinking if just one thing more fell your way, all your theories and philosophies would hold true. Unfortunately for you, though, they never do. You never guess right, or make bold predictions. You ever find your Harbaugh prediction before the preseason started? Of course you didn’t. ‘Cause there isn’t one you’re proud of. Peyton Manning will restructure everything, and Irsay will get compensated. Peyton’s new team will pay him and Irsay based on performance. Been sayin’ it all along, and when I’m wrong, I man up to it.

That’s an 86% FAIL rate.
    Hmm? Who lost the NFC Championship this year? Hello 7-9.
