Not So Easy in the Big Easy

Good to see the 49ers we have grown accustomed to showed back up. The 49ers embarrassed themselves in New Orleans this week and once again struggled to beat a good team. It’s unfortunate we can’t play the Lions every week.

The 49ers did some good things, like shutting down Reggie Bush, but not surprisingly made Lance Moore a superstar and everyone else not named Bush.

Don’t even get me started on the piss poor play of the Offensive Line. Saints came into the game only having six sacks and in this game they matched that total today. Still not sure why Warhop still has a job. That along with the new and improved JT O’Turnover and the 49ers never had a chance.

At this moment I can’t think of any positives to take from this game, well maybe the returns by Rossum and the play by Patrick Willis, but that’s about it.

With all that said, I’m not to upset with the loss. Again turnovers, penalities and execution killed them. They still had opportunities but O’Sullivan’s INT’s in the endzone hurt. This team is way better than last years and if they can just work on the little things, I still see them doing well.


The Pundit of 49ersNews. I do what I can to supply the Niner fans with their fix.
  • Adam49

    I dont care what you say.We suck.We don't suck as bad as years prior,but we suck.I'm sick of this bullshit.JTO had the lucky opportunity to play Detroit and and injured Seattle.We flat out suck.Goodbye Nolan and Hello somebody that can put a complete team together.If you niner fans wanna be happy that where not cellar dwellars than go ahead.But for me it loks like its another year of disappointment and frustration.Our defense is straight smelly shit.Lance Moore?Are you fuckin kiddin me.Mark Roman, your fired.Patrick Willis you desreve better bro.This team was average at best and we got hammered.Hey Manny Lawson,maybe you should stretch before a game,just a thought.I pay $400 a season to watch this junk?Not to mention the 1-2K i spend in Frisco every year to watch this crap.It gets old.HEY MARTZ!!!HAND THE FUCKIN BALL OFF TO FRANK GORE FOR CHRIST SAKE!!!!Eric Heitman,you got fucken used and abused like a red headed stepchild.ABSOLUTELY REDICULOUS.

  • mouse

    This team is definitely better but unfortunately still not a winner. Both our lines are mediocre and I'll be shocked if Barry Sims is not let go after this game and Mark Roman doesn't lose his starting job.

    PS: I'm also getting tired of VD celebrating catches when we are getting destroyed.

  • Adam49

    Didn't we give up 8 sacks in that game niner Pundit?

  • Adam49

    We do not need a new owner.The yorks are doing everything they can to win.The coaches and the players are to blame.I have no problems with the yorks.

  • josh

    the defensive coordinator sucks. for crying out loud put some pressure on opposing qb's

  • Hack

    Why won't the Niners make the playoffs? The Division is terrible and they could very well steal it. This team is going to have ups and downs like this I'd try to keep the overreaction to a minimum.

  • Roscoe49er

    If we had the core of a very good team, we would be winning. A very good team has a very good QB. We don't. Why can't they beat the Patriots? One reason is they have two weeks to get ready. The other reason, I love the Niners but they suck. Maybe you should change your name to FootballHack. Would you really want them to get to the playoffs and then get raped? What does that prove? That we didn't belong in the first place.

  • Adam49

    Tim,no offense bro,but this game was not winable.And we didn't deserve to win this game.We could not stop a college reciever in Lance Moore,and we got sacked 6 times by a defense that had 4 sacks all season long.These things are not easily fixed.We will beat New England,no doubt in my mind.We wil get embarased against the Giants and the Eagles.I just expected more of this team.

  • Tim

    We did not stop Lance Moore because Nolan game planned to stop Bush and his stubborn ass refuses to make adjustments. I was at work Adam so I missed the majority of the game on TV I had to watch the helmets on CBS Sportsline did we miss Spencer that much or did we just get torched. I just think that we could still have been much more competitive and just played really bad and the coaching had issues of their own.

  • James Jones

    Adam, our secondary is the most experienced in the league, not the defense as a whole.

    I have to move some things from my place to get ready for my move back to Cali next weekend. I will have something posted on the game tomorrow guys.

  • Adam49

    AXEGRINDER i'm with you all the way on the V.D statement.

  • Adam49

    You want optimism?Take away the 2nd Quarter and we win.

  • gee-ray

    this game was win-able. we LOST it. the o line lost it. Jt's turnovers were because of lack of protection. yes they were bad throws and yes he held on to the ball too long. but the line kept breaking down and forcing him into errant throws. two of them that should have been touchdowns. instead the saints score 14. Thats a 28 point swing. Then you throw in the fumbles that led to touchdowns. This game should have been ours. Well at least we should have been in the game.

  • 4EVERNINER

    Fuck man this sucked the secondary is HORRIBLE!!! seriously they get paid millions of dollars to stay in front of a piece of shit WR and they can't take advantage!!!! SERIOUSLY GIVE VERNON DAVIS THE FUCKIN BALL!!!!!! I would be like that to if I know LBs can't run with me and DBs are scared to tackle me….NOTE TO COACHING STAFF= THAT EQUALS A FUCKIN MISMATCH FUCKIN USE IT TO YOUR ADVANTAGE…. PPL stop hatin on vernon GIVE HIM THE FUCKIN BALL GOD DAMMIT!!!!

  • James Jones

    Grinder, my man, you are not going to like myself and Pundit. We are die-hard Niners, Lakers and Dodogers fans!!!Oh shit E, did I let the cat out of the bag there?!!!

  • Hack

    Who let Vernon Davis on here?

  • Niner Pundit

    Adam…the Seattle defense that JT went against wasn’t injured.

  • Adam49

    Give Allen rossum a raise please.At least he shows some heart and soul in his game.

  • crazydave

    ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT!!!!!! Get rid of Nolan and OWNER!!!he is no were near as good as his dad was .I told everyone down here we should have hired the quarterback coach from seatle but no we hired a special teams coach at best.We need a new owner who wants to win instead of moving the team.they made this team as bad as Arizona used to be.Lets see so far 3 first round busts in Alex Smith,Vernon Davis and Manny Lawson or may be there just coached bad i don’t know.And wheres this great defense we are supost to have a 50 yard plays from Robert Meachum or how ever you spell.And again our offensive line sucked big time Again.!!!!

  • Adam49

    Ya V.D is flat out annoying.Catch the ball and go back to the huddle you fucken idiot.

  • Ninervalley

    Average, that’s what the niners are this year, they’re better than the lions, rams, chiefs, and other bottom dweller teams but this team is not that good. This is going to happen a lot this year people! Theyre gonna beat who they are suppose to beat but they are not a playoff team so stop being so suprised when they lose…….This is the best team nolan can put out there, he is not a good coach and he needs to go, he’s suppose to be some deffenive genius but that’s the Niners achilles heel!!!! Get rid of him and start over……we’re no longer the joke of the league but mediocracy is nothing to brag about and that’s all the Niners will ever be under that joke of a coach

  • Niner Pundit

    Yes Adam..I believe it was 6. JT has been sacked what 20 something times. He can’t be perfect every game. What was the stat they showed 29 pass attempts, hurried 23 times. Don’t care who you are as a QB, that much pressure gets to you. And despite that he still got the team in the redzone, but unfortunately turned it over. It’s turnovers, poor O-line play and penalties on D that are killing this team. They lost by 11 (yeah I know it’s 14) but despite the turnovers and Brees having his way they were still in it to an extent on the road.

  • Adam49

    Ninervalley,i’m gonna have to agree with you.And i’m sure i will hear about it on this site.We don’t seem to be prepared week in and week out.But i am goona have to stick by my opinion that V.D is a 2nd or 3rd round pick at best.

  • Adam49

    Niner Pundit,please dude.It was 8 in the game against Seattle.6 this game.Pressure on the QB?Then you run screens,draws,and 3 step drops.Gie gore the fucken ball.If you let Lance Moore beat us then i just don’t have an answer.

  • mouse

    they won’t make the playoffs because the next three games are against the Pats, Eagles, and Giants… all three are better than the Saints. We might have a chance against the Pats but it’s a long shot when both our front lines are as solid as a cheese grater.

  • Adam49

    Hey gomez,where are you bro.I need some opinions on this game.This was a mediocre team and we got handled.This is not something i was anticipating.

  • Adam49

    Good news?The Cards lost.Bad news?The Rams just scored a TD.LOL

  • Hack

    And Arizona’s next three are against Buffalo Dallas and in Carolina. The 49ers can win the division.

  • mouse

    I agree Hack that we can win the division still, but I’m just hoping not believing :p

  • Roscoe49er

    What an ugly web we weave when we practice to percieve. Think we can beat the Pats? No. The Eagles? Hell No. Can you imagine what Jim Johnsons defense will do to o’sullivan. I see a four game losing streak on the horizon. 2-5 when we play Seattle. A healthy Seattle. Get ready for another high draft pick and at least a couple of more long, long years. It might be better in the long run to tear the team down (save Willis) and start from scratch. Anyone of you who thinks JT can lead us to the playoffs or even a (HA) Superbowl, you should just stop watching football.

  • Hack

    Why can’t they beat the Patriots? The Niners aren’t a better team than the Fins? The Eagles will be a tough game but New England is beatable. Starting from scratch? That’s not going to happen. The core of a very good team is here. There is premier running back. Good young players on D. This team needs a QB and an O Coordinator to stick together for more than a year. The O-line needs to be coached up. This team can make the playoffs because the division sucks. They can go 9-7 and win the division. I’ll keep watching football though thanks.

  • Hack

    If you haven’t been paying attention the Patriots aren’t THE Patriots any more. They have a terrible QB, an aging defense and got manhandled by the Dolphins. Yes a QB is definitely missing from the 49ers but the Offensive line is young and will only improve under improved coaching and years together. Gore is one of the best backs in the league. The core is there it doesn’t mean it’s ready to be an upper echelon team in the division. If you don’t want your team to make the playoffs and be a division champion maybe you should stop watching football. Stop overreacting over one loss. The team is going to have games like this it’s growing.

  • Adam49

    Growing?Our defense is the most experienced in the league.It cant grow anymore than it is.Our offense has plenty of talent but or offensive line is absolutely crap.The only good thing about us making the playoffs is that we will get to see our team play another week.Bad thing is,whats the point of making the playoff but only to get embarassed and to get a higher draft pick.I’m just discouraged about this team.This was not a good team we faced today,and they put up 31 on us.28th defense in the league on defense and we couldn’t score a TD.I’m sick of Mike Nolan.Let me have it.I know i was wrong again,but fuck em.

  • Tim

    Call me crazy but I still think that this game was winable. Poor O-line a couple of bad coaching decisions (3rd and 1 and we pass?) 2 int in the endzone, a great catch on a well defended flea flicker and on and on. We just fell behind and could not utilize the run game which is what cost us in my opinion. Dont forget this was a 10am road game in a tough place to play against a team desperate for a win. The Jets killed Zona, KC beat DEnver, and both the Rams and Redskins lead good teams at the half. This is the NFL you just dont dominate and win every week. JTO had a bad game and was under pressure all day I refuse to give up on him or the team just yet!!!

  • Tim

    The Saints offense is much better than mediocre plus the rankings are only based off of 3 games. Dont give up on us yet.

  • Hack

    The Defense avg years of experience in the league is 4.5 years. I hardly called that the most experienced in the league. Sorry that I can’t be as pessimistic as you guys where making the playoffs wouldn’t be a positive. The Saints aren’t a good team but they’re not necessarily a bad team and have a hard home field to play on. If you’re so pessimistic about the team shouldn’t you expect losses like this and they shouldn’t get you so upset?

    This team is going to lose games like this and it’s going to win games like the Lions game… how is that hard to handle. No one expected this to be a 10+ win team did they?

  • Hack

    Adam has a short memory where the 49ers shut down some premier receivers last week in Detroit.

  • Dan the man

    Adam, you need to relax. Last week you were in love, and this week it seems like the world is going to end. We got beat by a good team on the road. You have to remember that this was JTO’s 4th start. The rest of the year we are just going to have to except his growing pains. The team will win with JTO and also lose with him

  • Tim

    Down 21-9 JTO throws an int in the endzone. We score there and all momentum is on our side. As bad as we played we were in this game up until that point. Yes we did not deserve to win but could we have I think so but that does not make me right. The Saints are not leaps and bounds better than us we just got beat by the better team TODAY if we were to play again I still think we could win thats all I have to say. Now it is on to the Patriots.

  • MSouza

    Its amazing how the posts change in the matter of one week. Everybody was crazy about our team after we beat a terrible Lions team, but now that we lose to a pretty prolific offense everybody is back on the fire everybody, change the QB, bench the world.

    We aren't that good yet guys, just relax, take the good with the bad and hope that there is more good this year. We are getting better and really could have won that game if it wasn't for two redzone int's, despite Barry Simms' best impersonation of a matador.

    Get off Vernon Davis' back when he is targeted he is one of the toughest match ups in the league. I don't think there are too many tight ends that can turn a bubble screen into an 19 yard gain. I don't care what you say Vernon Davis showing some fire is not the reason why we lost the game. Him only getting targeted twice might have had something to do with it however.

    We got the Patriots next week, we will probably beat them, in my opinion, and then Adam49 is going to be the first post on here saying how terrific our team is when the only thing that changed is the opponent.

    Don't get me wrong I'm not saying we suck or hating on the niners, I'm just saying that we are a 7-9 win team, which means we lose 7-9 games. Today happened to be one of them. I still think we got a chance at the playoffs, however, if for no other reason than our division is the worst in football and we appear to be the most poised despite the week one loss to the Cardinals.

    And let the panicking continue…

  • tony from bakersfield

    this is the same group of people that were giving high five’s and hell ya’s to the Niner’s when they tore up the Lion’s. What a change when our team loses. Come on guys….WTF!! Give this team some credit…they are waaaaaaay better then last year and they aren’t going to be a Super Bowl team this year…just look at the positives and as long as they fix their mistakes from today for next week…we’ll be ok!! Saint’s are not a mediocre team…they do lead the league in alot of offensive categories!!!

  • joe gomez

    Right here Adam.. I was so pissed I had to leave town for awhile. Let me say something here, somebody on that O-Line needs to lose his fucking job. I dont know who, but Barry Sims might be a choice. Put in this Rachal mother fucker and see what he can do. Our D-Line sucks just as bad, no fucking pressure anywhere. No sacks on Brees, plain pitiful. Again, hate to beat a dead horse but where is this guy Balmer? Atleast we could of had Desean AND Rossum back there scaring people. Fucking wasted picks! The secondary was TERRIBLE. Both safeties Roman and Lewis looked like pure SHIT. Even Goldson got burnt, I thought this kid was fast? How are we going to let some piece of shit rookie catch for over 100 yards? Fucking fire the motherfucken defensive coordinator already. His shit isnt working. We blitzed a few times, but we need to do it more since its obvious our D-Line isnt doing shit. JTO, what can you say, yea he had the picks but fuck give the motherfucker a couple seconds atleast to throw the ball. What the fuck is wrong with Josh “Alligator Arms” Morgan? Get Jason Hill in there if this bitch is scared to get hit. They need to fix this quick or its gonna be a long year. The only good news today is that all the other teams lost too, so were still tied for first place. Bad news is the Pats and Philly are coming up.

  • Lowrance

    Thank God I’m not the ONLY one who gets annoyed when VD makes ONE catch and pounds his chest while we’re down 28-9.

  • Adam49

    Well our secondary has something like 507 games played.That should be enough to stop Lance Moore.Ya i was happy when we beat the lions.WE WON.

  • AXEGRINDER

    Anyone notice a trend when we play early games over the past couple of seasons??? The team plays like they just got out of bed. Bad coaching, gentlemen. Nolan is not preparing this team. And what was that challenge all about? Even if they would have won it, it wouldn’t have meant shit. 2nd and 10 or 2nd and 5??? Instead we give away a timeout. At that time a couple of scores and we’re ahead. Sorry Nolan, but you fucking disgust me.

  • AXEGRINDER

    Oh and by the way, Vernon Davis fucking disgusts me too.

  • Adam49

    Well i agree with the bad preparation,but the players have to take responsibility for shit too.

  • Roscoe49er

    One more point…How do you shut down players like Roy Williams and Calvin Johnson and then let players like Lance Moore or Robert Meachum beat you? Can someone explain that? Drew Brees is a great QB but even he can’t make these guys look that good. The problems: O-Line, Run Defense, Inconsistent Secondary, Lack of Pass Rush, Quarterback, COACH. Shouldn’t be too hard to fix, its only the most important parts of winning a game. There is potential, but potential does not win games. Keep living on memories for a little while longer Niner Fans.

  • NINERTIME

    oline sucks bad, we need to get that fixed like NOW… We have a hard next three games, we really needed this win!

  • James Jones

    One more thing guys, it should be noted that in the sequence where VD pounded his chest after the catch in the flat and ran for about 15 yards he was yelling at the sideline about why that was the first pass that was thrown to him in the game. You could see it when he went to the sideline and he was fighting with Nolan.

  • AXEGRINDER

    Adam….while I agree the players have to be accountable, the defensive scheme was seriously FLAWED. We took Bush out of the game for the most part, then we let McCallister run all over us. I think we ranked 2nd in the league against the pass, well that’s out the fucking window. There was no pass rush to speak of, and our secondary just plain got burned.

    I don’t blame O’Sullivan for shit. When you get harassed all day, of course you’re going to make mistakes. The O-line needs to get their head out of their ass and fucking PROTECT. It’s their job. It’s what they get paid for.

    I didn’t even watch the 2nd half, and I’m glad I didn’t. I went and watched Lincecum strike out 12 or 13 faggot-ass Dodgers. At least it was a good day at AT&T Park.

    Last week we looked good against a garbage team, and this week we looked like garbage against a good team. This shit isn’t good for my health.

  • Samra

    even martz could have done a better job…VD got the Ball once when all last week all we heard from the press was how O’Sullivan and VD stayed after practice to work on stuff…and another thing the saints pass rush was raping us so why didnt we counter that by running it up their asses with gore?

  • Adam49

    V.D reminds me of T.O.The plays on defense were their,the players didn’t make them.I am not gonna make excuses for our coaching staff.Our players stink.I do blame O’Sullivan for for his stupidity.2 INT’s and a fumbles?Vintage JTO.He holds onto the ball for 5 seconds with 4 recievers out in routes?Nopass rush unless we blitz?Same probs as last year.

  • gee-ray

    MSouza– i agree. the o line is weak. JTO had two costly passes. it should be a learning tool now. i think he played well dispite the turnovers. yes they cost us dearly but he was competitive and i dont see him regressing from this game alone. he will use it to sharpen his game and learn from it. And yes low quality recievers beat us, but really Drew Brees beat us. IMO he is one of the best qb's in the league. if not the best this season so far. chalk it up to a tough loss. does anyone remember week 3 vs Philly in 1994? SHIT HAPPENS GET OVER IT. yes i was pissed yesterday watching but that was yesterday. now i look forward to next sunday. i think we have a chance to win alot of games this year.

  • gee-ray

    oh and perhaps this loss can motivate us even more. i'll take a loss to a tough saints team if it means we upset dallas

  • joe gomez

    Yea I agree.. V.D. was just frustrated that that was the only ball thrown his way. I got no problems with it. He got emotional because he was pissed so what.

  • Golden Elbows

    Im not going to knock on the offense. They did drive the ball, they just couldnt capitalize.

  • Pintor98

    We should of had Clements,T-Brown,Goldstn,Roman,Harris in as our package not ILB opps I mean M Lewis SS. Too slow, we should of had a corner on the slot not a safety!!! We need to go back to a 3-4 an watch some film on Pitt's and N.E blitz from everywhere. We were so predictable who was rushing!! Big Joke, Mc Donald is a DT not fast enough for a 4-3 DE and Soap thanks for taking our money. He hasn't played good at all, I guess he's happy now that he got paid, I see him standing around when the play is away from him. Did you see the Bears and Eagles D-Fence shit they were flying around everywhere. Not to mention McNolan and Co fucked up not drafting D Jackson not once, but twice they passed on him. He would easily have been our most explosive player right now on Offense!! KR/PR

  • Pintor98

    Prediction first rd pick 2009 OT !!!!!!

    2nd Rd NT. Possible free agents 2009 DL-Peppers, Suggs, W.Smith,T Harris, T Johnson, WR's Roy Williams,Lee Evans,Roscoe Parish,T.O, TJ Who's Your Mamma,

    CB's Oakland Raider Nnamdi Asomugha one of the top one on one corners in the NFL. Let's think about it ummmm A.Smith 10 million next season or a lock down corner?? Yeah bye A.Smith. How about Mr Glass 6 million next season and TBC 3.8 that's 9.6= T Suggs.

    That would be nice T. Suggs and Asmugha instead of A.Smith (IR)10 millin, TBC (Inactive List)3.8 millin, Mr Glass

    (Soon to be on the IR)6.1 million

    Nolan should of have Green and Haralson in more on 1st and 2nd downs when we knew they were going to throw the ball!!!!!

  • Lowrance

    sweeo = sweep

  • Golden Elbows

    This lost ends up being either the Defense play calling. I do agree that we should have biltz MOORE. Whats the bad case senerio, we’ll get burned. Well—-too bad cause we were burned. We cant give the game away. THE DLINE GERENATED NO PRESSURE!!!

  • West

    James….any update on Manny Lawson?

  • Lowrance

    I saw the yelling between Nolan and VD. If that truely was VD yelling AT Nolan for not getting more passes, Maybe he should look at last week’s game film of him DROPPING two passes thrown right to him. Shut up and play VD. For all the talent your body posesses, you haven’t done shit for the 49er’s to this point!

  • Lowrance

    Dodger fan????? I can see Laker fan, because the Warriors haven’t done much since 1976! (except for maybe run DMC or whatever those 3 called themselves)

    Giants did their best to be spoiler. Beating the Dodgers and letting Arizona sweeo us. But oh well. We’ll just have to wait until the Dodgers implode in the first playoff!

  • Bignick07

    I don’t get why they don’t start shaun hill, i mean he won the last two games of last season for us right? I also don’t get why gore doesn’t get more carries. We should use Gore as long as we have him, at least let him carry the ball 20 times, hes in the prime and could be one of the NFL’s best backs. I mean i get JT used martz system before but honestly hes a nobody…

  • Adam49

    Hey Souza you fucken dipshit!If we beat the patriots next week i will be on here talking about terrific our team is,BECAUSE THAT MEANS WE WOULD HAVE WON.It wasn’t just 2 endzone INT’s that hurt us.The 6 sacks we gave up to a defense that only had 4 all year was pretty bad.Or how about the fact that we could have played just as good as we did on defense with no safeties in the game.28th defense in the league and we couldn’t run or pass?That’s not something that’s positive.Look,it’s another game with a differant team this week,but as Nolan said,there’s nobody that played well in this game and that’s not a good sign.

  • joe gomez

    ATTN: ALL NINER FANS…THIS IS A FUCKING JOKE!!!!!!

    Just heard on KNBR.. Razor and Mr. T were interviewing Maiocco. Check this shit out. Tolbert was reaming Nolan for a bonehead challenge that got overturned he did which didnt make much sense. Guess who is in the Coaches booth calling for these challenges? They actually had to request special permission from the league to have him in the booth and they got it granted.

    PARAAG MARATHE!!! (The Salary Cap Guru)

    Tell me if this is the most ridiculous stuff youve ever heard as an Niners Fan!!! Unfuckenbelievable!!!!

  • joe gomez

    James please run a story on how this kid from business school is in charge of communicating with Nolan on the sidelines to tell him what to challenge on the field. This dude doesnt know shit about football. What the fuck!!!!

    Whats even funnier is Nolan protected this prick and said, ‘we were trying to slow down the game’ and thats why he called the challenge. Ridiculous.

  • http://niners Medford

    Whats up with Manny Lawson this guy is turning into another "Mr Glass" how many times could one guy gey injured and he got hurt just by running WTF?

    JTO hold on to the ball and stop throwing it when people are covered in the endzone!!!

    Clements get the $80 million out of ur pocket and cover "Lance Moore" every time I saw that fucker he was laughing at r D what a joke!

    The defensive line has been a joke for a while now I like Justin Smith but he has no help. Everyone on this site wanted us to resign Sopaoga for big $$ and we did he cant even get a sack and all Ray Mcdonald could do is get offsides penaltys.

    STAND OUT PLAYERS OF THE GAME WERE

    1) ARNAZ BATTLE ( HE'S A BETTER #3 WR)

    2) PATRICK WILLIS

    3) TAKEO SPIKES

    4) JOE NEDNEY

    5) FRANK GORE

    WATS UP WITH ALL ARE PLAYERS NOT LOOKING FOR THE BALL HOW MANY TIMES DID WE SEE THE BALL THROWN TO SOMEONE AND THEY WERE NOT EVEN LOOKING.

  • AXEGRINDER

    Joe..I was coming home from a shitty day at work when I heard that shit on KNBR. I couldn’t believe my fucking ears. For once I agree with Ralph. Paraag Marathe????? Nolan should be fired for that alone. The guy’s a fucking beancounter. That’s it. My 5 month old has more business being in that booth than some beurocrat. I was trying to justify that challenge in my head without success. I guess I wasn’t the only one.

    And James….I respect your writing as well as your opinion, but you’re seriously a Dodger fan?? That just doesn’t make any sense. I spit on Dodger fans. I hate the fucking Dodgers as much as I hate the Raiders. And in my house, that’s saying something. I’ve been to Dodger games in L.A when they’re playing the Giants and trash talk their fans IN THEIR OWN STADIUM. And they don’t say nothin’ except Barry Bonds is on steroids. Get original. Fucking bitches. I’ll definately have the last laugh when they get trounced in the playoffs. And the Lakers??? Don’t even get me started. I’ll root for ANYONE against the Lakers. But being that this is a 49er site, I’m willing to be friends (As much as someone could be friends with a Dodger fan anyway).

  • AXEGRINDER

    Too bad none of these N.L playoff teams have a Tim Lincecum. He made the Dodgers look like the steaming piles of shit that they are. If I saw Blake or Kent on the street, I’d pop ‘em both in the face. And that shit’s real. To quote Gump, “and that’s all I’m going to sat about that.”

  • AXEGRINDER

    sat=say

  • Adam49

    I dont watch much baseball because its as boring as watching a Tenns match,but aren’t the Dodgers going to the playoffs and the Giants are gonna watch the playoffs?Just wondering.

    It’s a rivalry thing Adam, since you’re just wondering. It goes back to when both teams were in NY. It doesn’t matter who’s going to the playoffs and who isn’t, the rivalry is still there. I’ll admit the Giants stink, I can be big about it, but that doesn’t mean I have to respect the Dodger organization. But by your own admission you don’t watch much baseball and that’s fine, so I don’t expect you to know shit about it.

    Sorry James if I got a little too excited in my previous comments, it’s just the Dodgers tend to bring out the worst in me. You’re still a good guy in my book.

    Fuck the Dodgers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey AXEGRINDER,it doesn't take a genius to know that there are bragging rights for a team that makes the playoffs and a team that doesn't.If we sucked this year and the Raiders made the playoffs,they would have the bragging rights.The Dodgers are going to the playoffs while the sorry ass Giants are sitting their asses on the couch.It's ok to be jealous.But from what i see you should be shuttin the fuck up and start thinkin about next season.I don't watch baseball in the regular season but i start watching in the playoffs.I guess i will be watching the Dodgers and not the Giants.

    Medford manny pulled a hamstring from running. that doesnt make him mr. glass. Mr. Glass stumps his big toe and is out. Manny seems to work hard he just has had a couple of injuries. i cant knock him. He asked to be put on special teams.

    lets go niners!!!

  • R,Craig33

    Man this just might be another losing season fellas, maybe we should just start facing it now I mean I don’t want to be negative but losing has been draining me for years now and I mentioned our niners around a bunch of eagles fans and they chuckled and said the 49ers but I had to remind them what our niners are in history and let them know that andy reid came up under mike holmgren and he came up under bill walsh and that west coast offense that the eagles are using is the bill walsh 49ers offense and that they’re having success with our offense and it shut all of them the fuck up actually the whole gym but that goes to show what they think about the 49ers like we’re fools for being niners fans but ultimatly I’m tired of losing and I just can’t take another losing season I’m just saying how I feel about it and I’m not speaking for anybody else or trying to get others to feel they way I feel I hope it all turns around.

    Nolan admitting that the defense was out of position on big plays is a total knock on himself and his staff. Nolan is the worst I have ever seen at making adjustments. He obviously disrespected Duece McCallister because we bottled up Bush but let Duece run up the middle all day. I mean, the Saints are a pretty good offensive team, but I know our D is better than they showed. I think Nolan's scheme needs work. Without a pass rush, we're not good enough to shut teams down.

  • 9nerfan

    its still early. we’re tied for first. we’ll get it together.we’re playing the hardest part of our schedule for the next three weeks so we can get some good experience out of this.we just need to biltz more and fucking block for jto. i wanna see what rachal can do. might as well put him in. no one on the line is blocking.put the rookie in.

  • joe gomez

    Adam49.. i think what it all comes down to is Bay Area fans support Bay Area teams and NoCal will always hate SoCal teams.. so FUCK the L.A. Fakers and FUCK the L.A. Dodgers. The Raiders still smell like L.A. so FUCK them too!

  • Adam49

    When Patrick Wills was asked about the game,he said they didn't even make any adjustments at halftime.They just had to execute the gameplan better.Obviously that plan didn't work to well.

    And Gomez,is their a specific person that is supposed to be in the booth for replay responsibility's?I don't know who's supposed to have that responsibility.But i agree it shouldn't be Marathe.

  • Adam49

    And AXEGRINDER,i may be sitting behind a computer screen but if you think for 1 second that i wouldn't say this to your face, your mistaken.And if i made enemies on this site it's because we had differant opinions and we got carried away.All i said to you was that it's hard to talk shit about a team that's going to the playoffs when your team is riding the couch.I understand rivalry just fine.But what it boils down to is that Dodger fans(And im not 1 of them) get to watch their team a little longer than you do.And in sports,that's a big deal.

  • http://niners Medford

    Im a little confused isnt the reason we are in a 3-4 defense is so we could blitz from different angles and have fast lbs running free at the QB? Whats up with this freakin nickle defense that we keep running? Obvisouly we could not get a pass rush this way so why not change it? We need to use Harralson more to rush the QB.

    AND ALSO IT MIGHT BE TIME TO BENCH FRANKLIN HE IS THE REASON WE COULD NOT STOP UP THE MIDDLE RUNS.

  • AXEGRINDER

    Adam, you go right ahead and watch the Dodgers lose in the playoffs. I could give two shits what you do with your time. My first comment wasn’t directed at you, but you had to stick your big nose in and make some comment to provoke me. You’ve made enemies with just about every one on this site at one time or another, which tells me that you know nothing of what the fuck your talking about, or you just like to piss people off behind the comfort of a computer screen. Whatever the case, I don’t give a shit. I was just trying to point out that the fact the Dodgers are going to the playoffs and the Giants aren’t isn’t the point I was trying to make. The point was that a RIVALRY exists between fans in NORCAL and SOCAL. I’m not going to bother trying to explain it to you. I could type my fingers to the bone giving reasons why the Dodgers are a garbage organization. Overpaying everyone on their team and making the playoffs by the skin of their asscheeks? And then losing in the first round? And don’t talk to me about Zito because that’s one mistake compared to hundreds by L.A. I’m not going to turn this debate into a long drawn out thing, but you telling me to “shut the fuck up” was completely unwarranted. So let’s let agree to disagree and move on to Niner discussions.

  • joe gomez

    Amen to that .. lets keep this about the Niners. I havent heard much comment from anybody about the BIGGEST joke in Niner history. Fucking Paraag Marathe up in the coaches booth with a headset and coaches gear on advising Nolan on when to throw that red challenge flag. This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard in my life!!!!

  • ninerfan4life

    you gotta b fuckin’ kidding me. calm down niner fans. our offense is as good as it’s been since young was at the fuckin’ helm. ok … so brees torched us. relax. bottom line .. start fuckin blitzing more and we’ll be ok.

  • joe gomez

    ninerfan4life.. wish it was that simple. nolan admitted that the secondary missed alot of assignaments. they were out of position on every single big play the saints had. blitzing more will helpn but theyre needs to be alot more corrections, possibly personnel moves would help too especially on that pathetic offensive line. we need to see what Rachal can do now. high draft picks sitting on the bench is just not productive. if he can play, he needs to get in there. im sure hes better than barry sims. sims got manhandled on just about every play.

  • Pintor98

    I can’t wait till they fire Nolans ass. I really think he’s holding back our DC Manusky. Did you guys see the Ravens and Steelers Defense 3-4 blitzing from everywhere. Nolan’s freakin big nickle is a big joke. Martz should be the coach

  • Lowrance

    Classless Al Davis continues. SELL The Raiders Al, and restore some respectability to the club….

    Thank God I stopped liking this team as soon as they moved to L.A.

    C'MON NINERS. My wife's cousin from Mass. is always rubbing my nose in it sport's wise. Time to upset the Patriots!!!

  • Belmont49er

    The sad thing is we have the worst division for the last 10 years. Yah the Seaclucks made it to the superbowl but i still think our division could of easily been one. Imagine if someone in our division gets to be like the Pats a great organization, we will surely be screwed then. If we dont regain this division now, our time will be up and have to wait 10 more years. Its sad!

  • Nashville9er

    I’m still hopeing for good things this year but…
    Maybe next year they will get some high draft picks that will actually contribute. Like a a pass-rushing stud at OLB, a NT that can actually hold the middle, and a ballhawking FS. A QB to develop would be nice too….oh, and send a boat load of cash to get Holmgren down here.
    Obviously, i’m making my early X-mas list…

  • joe gomez

    You got it right Adam, Paraag Marathe was the man IN CHARGE of letting Nolan know what plays to challenge. Thats a FUCKING JOKE!

    BTW i will be at the Pats game and will be taking pictures of the game and Young's ceremony. I will post them up on my website.. myspace.com/jomargomez in my 49ers album.

  • HallNiner

    I have four words of advice for this weeks game against the Pats: BLITZ BLITZ BLITZ BLITZ!!!!!! Nuff said.
