Beast & Bitches: Wk 3 – 49ers vs Vikings

I’m pissed. I’m so pissed. The 49ers had this win, but three straight runs not for a first down and putting the ball back in Favre’s hands with over 1:30 left is just stupid. So this week I’m only handing out the award for Bitch this week and that honor goes to offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye. We as Niner fans know who the Beasts are, pretty much the entire team today. This loss is on coaching.


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

    this lose is on Farve being Farve….

    • moto9er

      Nope, this loss is on coaching and special teams. 3rd down on 9er's last posession was a no brainer pass call but of course the conservative niners ran to give the ball back. The kickoff TD was the other difference in this one.

      • Cory

        you say that…but you get an incomplete pass and then vikings have 1 time out left….and the same outcome could of happened

        • Niner Pundit

          Not necessarily. Vikings would have had a completely different mindset with one time out left.

          • Manny

            HOw do you know for sure? R u a mind reader? Do you know how stupid that sounds. We had the game…Favre just made a great play and we didn’t.

      • Manny

        …and if we missed the pass? What then? It didn't work…so stop with all the BS, "we should have done this or that" bc it still comes down to the players executing. If Roman bats down the ball…everyone would talk about what great defensive calls. FCOL…now I see where the "Whiners" name comes from.

    • Manny

      Great play by him and bad play by Roman and our Dline (not getting there earlier)!!!!

    Jimmy Raye’s playcalling is the reason that 80-yard drive worked. If they hadn’t been so stubborn with the run, the defense never would have opened up to the pass.

    Granted, you’d like to see them throw it on third down in that situation, but they were 0-11 on third down! An incomplete pass would leave Favre with 1:30 AND a timeout. Would you have liked that better?

    I was hoping on that last 9er drive that Raye/Singletary would have called an HB Toss and a fake to the FB up the middle rather than just a ordinary run up the middle/Right/Left.

    • miscus555

      if we didn’t have a delay of game penalty the play before the 2nd VD touchdown, we wouldn’t be talking about any of this

    that win was in the bag! at least all of the other teams in our division lost. too bad Gore couldn’t play the entire game. only Favre could have made an unbelievable play like that.

  • GBNinerFan

    Yeah, the last series of playcalling, especially the toss, was pretty pathetic. The passing game was working and the running game was just ok. They could have called some conservative short pass plays which would have made way more sense considering how the game had gone up until that point. Pissed is right!!!

    ALSO VERNON DAVIS FOR PRESIDENT

  • Nick

    Easy guys, two years ago teams were finishing off the niners in the first half. We truly have a competitive team on the field now. I still wanted to stick it to the vikings though!

  • ninerfaithful

    i hope the vikes are who we meet in the playoff this year

  • ninerfaithful

    HEY PUNDIT CAN WE GET A CAROLINA COUNT DOWN TRACKER ON THE SITE SO ALL FAITHFUL CAN COUNT DOWN TO OUR NUMBER ONE PICK IN THE DRAFT THANKS TO A SWEET DRAFT TRADE BY THE FRONT OFFICE ……….

  • Joe Gomez

    Another thing to point out is Andy Lee’s punt was all jacked up because the football had slipped and he didnt kick it right. If he had, the ball wouldve been inside the 10 which I think wouldve made a difference going another 10 yards. Or maybe it wouldnt of, it is F A V R E Y.. man this guy has been killing us for years and years. Cant he just stay retired!!! LoL

  • Manny

    I'm happy that its not the "same ol' niners" from recent past. With Nolan, we would have lost by halftime and players would have given up. You "so called niner fans" that seem to know football better than these coaches, are missing the big picture. Minnesota knows they got lucky and we won that game; Sing and his players know it and we as "FANS" should know that!!! We have something positive going on here and we haven't had that in a while and we need build from it and move on to the STLambs!!!

  • Adam

    It was a competitive game and we had this one. Favre still has a good arm but he's already starting to get beat up. If we do meet them in the playoffs it will be will Sage Rosenfels as QB. Either way, we will win the remath hands down.

  • ninerfaithful

    THANKS PUNDIT FOR THE COUNTER AND THANKS FOR THE GREAT SITE

  • xpnsivwino

    The Niners should have taken advantage of the new ruling this year that you CAN hit the receiver out of bounds, and it wouldn’t have mattered IF he would have landed in bounds. The receiver was up in the air long enough to be pushed out. What a heartbreaker.

    • Elgin

      Except for one thing… mark roman was trailing the receiver and had a late jump. There was no way he could push Lewis out of bounds with him already a step ahead and jumping away from him.
