San Francisco 49ers

9 November 2014

 The niners came into this game on the brink of a demoralizing season. Jim Harbaugh's job status became a daily talking point, and people questioned the direction of the franchise.

Yet, Harbaugh and the 49ers shut everyone up by winning themselves back into the playoff race with a 27-24 victory over the New Orleans Saints Sunday.

The San Francisco 49ers remain as one of the top teams in the NFL, and look for them to compete for the championship this year.

Nobody needs another idiot fan ranting or raving, giving their personal opinion on their favorite teams activities without any real insight. I can't make any promises that I won't be an idiot fan but I will attempt to offer something less typical. The vast majority of my posts will be running, real-time blogs of Bay Area sports games.

Hey Guys!

Even though it took a last second field goal from Joe Nedney, we beat the Washington Redskins.  And between you and me, we deserved it.  We outplayed them all game, survived a bad second quarter, and finished the game strongly.  We finished the season on an up-note by beating a good Washington Redskin team that had their playoff hopes broken last week.  All we did was put the final nail in the coffin.

Hey Guys!

 We did it. We beat the Rams...barely! I won't get into everything that went wrong for the 9ers, i.e. Shaun Hills' poor decision making, the bad play of the offensive line, the poor job of Deshaun Foster, etc.  Instead, i'm going to focus on the positives of the game.

Hey Guys!

We got a guy in! Patrick Willis, the 49ers 2nd year ILB has been named to his 2nd consecutive Pro Bowl. His stats support this selection: 121 Total Tackles (3rd in the NFL and 2nd in the NFC), 92 Solo Tackles (2nd in the NFL and 2nd in the NFC), 11 Passes Defensed (51st overall in the NFL, 24th in the NFC, 4th among LB's in the NFL, and 3rd among LB's in the NFC), and an 86 yard Interception return for a TD against the Seahawks in Week 2.

Hey Guys!

As you're all aware of by now, the 49ers lost a winnable game at Miami. After the loss, the commentators and analysts like to describe the Dolphins win as a "smart" win. They keep saying things like: "They play smart football", or "The way they play the game is the smart way". This is characterized by their method of scoring early, comitting few turnovers, playing good defense, and winning the "Field Position Game".

Can we get a quarterback?  After watching today's "game" against the Miami Dolphins, I have never been more fully convinced that our issues are very simple.  We need a quality, veteran quarterback.  I sincerely think a good, and I stress "GOOD" quarterback can transform this team to an 11-5 or 12-4 team next year.  It's that simple.  If you've been watching the season of malcontent for many other teams, you know as well as I do that there will be some good quarterback available in the offseason.  I wouldn't be suprised if Donovan McNabb is available (I've blogged about this before), Carson Palmer will be out of Cincinnatti, one of the Browns quarterbacks will also be gone.  Marc Bulger is on his way out in St. Louis.  Any of these possibilities are leaps and bounds better than our current position.  How many 1, 2, or 3 yard out routes are we going to run?

Another week is in the books in the National Football League as we head to Week 15. But first let's take a look back at the week that was...Week 14! (my tongue is getting twisted) Several surprising outcomes this past Sunday including a few of the games I picked. I went a disappointing 1-3 in my picks. Very poor performance on my part. I'm finally realizing I'll never have a grip on the NFL. It's the most inconsistent professional sport out there. Any team can lose on any given week. But enough sulking, let's get on to this week's Fallout Report!

ately for Texans fans.

Winners - Green Bay Packers

2) New York Jets @ San Francisco 49ers

The Jets were surprised at home by the Denver Broncos last Sunday. This week they fly into San Francisco to take on the 4-8 49ers. Jets are 0-2 in the West Coast this season (losses against San Diego and Oakland). I however have a feeling that Brett Favre and company will bounce back after last week. The AFC East is still up for grabs and I believe that the Jets will hang on to sole possession of first. The 49ers are not a good football team. So I'll go with the J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets in this one. Ring it up.

I see the Browns winning a 'squeaker'.

Winners - Cleveland Browns

2) San Francisco 49ers @ Dallas Cowboys

This is what the Cowboys need. A winnable game at home. The 49ers are 3-7 (2nd though in the NFC West if you can believe that). The Cowboys need to keep winning to stay in the thick of the NFC East. Terrell Owens and Roy Williams should see the ball quite often (start em in Fantasy!) and the Cowboys should roll in this one.

He just keeps ticking, worn out old Greg Maddox won his 18th Gold Glove this past week. 

The playoff seedings in the MLL are set now.  Argonaut as the number one seed gets the 3rd place team in the WAC, Calaveras in the number 2 spot gets to drive down to Escalon and Summerville travels to Modesto for a game with Central Catholic.  Prospects don't look too good for an advance to the second round of any of the three teams, but as my good friend Ben always says, "You never know."

Week 7 is officially in the books as Tuesday, the 21st of October rolls around today. This week's Fallout report will cover the most interesting games from the week 7 slate in the National Football League. The alarm is going off in Big D as the Cowboys struggle for the second week in a row to find a win, the Vikings put up 41 in a loss, and Brett Farve gets the ball three times in overtime against the struggling Raiders, but can't chip any points in. I'll cover those happenings....right now!

NFC East

Week 7 preview

Hello East fans,

     As we head into the critical part of the season, the East sets up for a huge weekend of football. Last week’s slip up by every team except Philly made the race a lot tighter. We do not know if Mr. Jessica Simpson will play this Sunday after speaking with Brett over the week. Eli seems to have a injury similar to SuperFive’s and the Skins are wondering if they really lost to the Rams or not.

So I normally title my Monday blog: Monday Mourning due to being hungover from a full day of drinking and watching sports, hence the “mourning” because I have to get up, go to work, puke in the bathroom, and subsequently fall asleep in all of my meetings and get absolutely no work done. But today is different, mainly due to the fact that CBS’s and Fox’s regional coverage of NFL games in my area was HORRIBLE. Games that had a spread of +11 with no fantasy implications at all were being aired, so I went and watched polo (you know, the sport where guys on horses trot around and whack a ball with mallets). I had never been to a polo game before but we decided to go due to the possibility of attractive females (there are always beautiful women at horse events). We mingled with a few and made up some elaborate lies that we were just checking out the competition and had our horses stabled a few miles away. We were obviously out of place, with our cheers of “nice pass man!” and “shoooooot it!” but we wholeheartedly plan on attending it every Sunday for the rest of the season – pending what NFL games are on of course.

There's something toxic emanating from California and it isn't the ever present smog that lingers over Los Angeles.

That stench is the the Niners secondary getting torched for big-play after big-play or the offensive line festering in the Bayou with six sacks. It's the most meddlesome owner in pro-sports embarrassing a once proud franchise on national television yet again. It's a .238 winning percentage for a young inexperienced head coach that became mired in the "Commitment to Excrement" coming out of Raider camp these days.

The Crying Game

The Terrell Owens story

Hello NFL fans,

Well here we are, week four of the third year with his last team. This will be his last team, I truly believe that. If I were an owner I would rather get a letter full of anthrax and then imprisoned IN Cuba to spend the rest of my days. The continuous onslaught of reporters and fans condemning my name and wanting my head on a stick would be too much for me to bare.

One of the least talked about stories this week is 49ers offensive coordinator Mike Martz coaching against his former team in the Detroit Lions. The game that could be the "Martz Bowl" has both teams in a must win situation. For the Lions they need to avoid a 0-3 start in a hurry if they look to turn around their season and this is a very critical game for San Francisco as their schedule gets tougher than understanding a George Bush press conference.

September 19, 2008 Red Zone Ranger: week 3 NFL This week in the pros it seems like there is a subtle changing of the guard going on in the power structure of the teams. Is Buffalo finally for real this time? They've done this before in years gone by where they come out fast and turn some heads, but usually by week five they start to unravel like a cheap suit. Injuries or lack of staying power, or something. But this year they did look impressive against two playoff teams from last year. If they blow out the Raiders this week, maybe I'll look for a comfortable place on the bandwagon to plant myself. And are the Broncos riding 'high' again? Cutler looks like he has a cannon for an arm and he knows how to use it. They have historically been known as an offensive powerhouse but unless they can find that genuine old skool 'orange crush' their defense will once again prove to be their achilles heel.

Believe. Believe. It’s the one word in sports that says so much but says so little. You’ve seen signs in every NFL stadium at some point with this simple word. ”Believe.” When MLB baseball approaches the postseason every year, the word reappears. “Believe.” But believe in what I ask you? Do the Chicago Cubs “believe” that they will win a World Championship? Or do they “believe” that some strange twist of fate will ruin another promising season. What does your team “believe” in?

Growing up with the sport pre-salary cap, you always had the old stand-bys that won. The San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers, Oakland Raiders, and Pittsburgh Steelers made appearance after appearance in the post-season and nearly every other team was just window dressing. Later, when the cap came along things slowly changed. The shift has been interesting and it has taken me a bit to become accustomed to teams from smaller markets and without storied pasts gaining prominence.
