After yesterday’s victory over the Philadelphia Eagles, NFL Analyst Deion Sanders said the players are getting fed up with Jim Harbaugh, during Sunday’s NFL GameDay Final.

‘They want him out. They’re not on the same page’

Deion wasn’t the only one who flapped his gums, earlier this morning Trent Dilfer was on ESPN Radio and he had this to say.

I do think it’s become almost toxic.

So of course during Harbaugh’s press conference today the beat writers asked Harbaugh about him losing the locker room and what was said by Sanders. Harbaugh responded.

Uhh… Personally, I think that’s a bunch of crap.

Harbaugh wasn’t the only one who called the talk crap. Antoine Bethea was on The Doug Gotlieb Show on CBS Radio and he disagreed with Sanders report.

‘Nah, man we’re a family and it’s all about the guys in that locker room,’…’That’s all it’s about. Everybody in the locker room is trying to go out there and win. We’re a family. Outsiders, we’ll let them say what they say.’

Along with Bethea, Alex Boone also chimed in. During a radio appearance on 95.7 the Game, he basically reiterated what Harbaugh said about Dilfer and Sanders being full of crap.
‘Last I checked I was in the locker room and it was all smiles, and everybody was happy,’…’Nobody was saying we want him out. I know for a fact everybody loves Harbaugh.’…’He’s a great guy, a great coach. How could you not want to win for a guy that wears cleats during a game? Have you not seen that guy’s energy. He’s exciting 24/7. You’ve got to love playing for a guy like that. That’s what’s football is all about.’

Boone’s response after hearing Dilfer talk about ‘spitball’ offense and ‘almost toxic’ environment.

‘I’m confused. Guys are slouching around and it’s toxic? Those are words that should never be used,’ … I don’t get it. … We don’t worry about everybody on the outside, especially people that talk nonsense like that.’ … ‘What’s the problem. I’m confused. Is winning not good? Is business not booming right now boys?’ … ‘Here’s my problem with all this: if you’re not in our locker room, then keep the 49ers name out of your mouth, because you have no idea what goes on in our locker room.’

Of course Deion couldn’t keep quiet after the coach and players responded.

49ers Defense Holds Off Eagles for Win http://49ersnews.com/2014/09/49ers-defense-holds-eagles-win/ http://49ersnews.com/2014/09/49ers-defense-holds-eagles-win/#comments Mon, 29 Sep 2014 03:02:12 +0000 http://49ersnews.com/?p=9062 The 49ers defense held off a late push by the Eagles to win 26-21..

The 49ers defense held off the Eagles offense late in the game to seal the 49ers first victory at Levi’s Stadium and bring their record to 2-2.

The 49ers didn’t make it easy for us fans, special teams gave up a punt return for touchdown by Darren Sproles and a punt blocked for a touchdown. At one point the Eagles were winning 14-10 with only 47 yards on offense and 2 first downs. Thank goodness the 49ers defense decided to show up today.

The defense held LeSean McCoy to 17 yards rushing on 10 carries and held the Eagles high scoring offense to zero points (213 total net yards)

On the offensive side of the ball the 49ers still had some struggles, Colin Kaepernick threw a pick six and the offensive line struggled to keep Kap on his feet, but when the offense needed to make plays they did. Kaepernick threw a touchdown to both Frank Gore and Stevie Johnson and Phil Dawson connected on all his field goals. Again, it wasn’t pretty at times, but the 49ers defense held when they needed to.

Fun facts:
– Frank Gore’s 55 yard touchdown reception was the longest touchdown reception of his career.
– The 49ers defensive forced four turnovers and held the Eagles offense to 22 yards rushing and no points.
– This is Jim Harbaugh’s first victory over a team coached by Chip Kelly.

Notes:
– Rookie Aaron Lynch is having a quietly good season. No sacks, but one of the few to get pressure on the quarterback.
– Perrish Cox is playing well with Tramaine Brock out.
– Offense needs to adjust all the pre snap movement and stuff. It’s killing drive and Kaepernick taking delay of games.

The San Francisco 49ers started 2014 off strong with a 28-17 road win in Dallas, but have since taken two steps back. Frank Gore hasn’t been effective on the ground, Colin Kaepernick has been careless with the ball and a depleted Niners defense hasn’t been the elite unit most have been accustomed to seeing. That’s all led to what could be a must-win scenario for the suddenly 1-2 Niners, as they play host to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4. Only adding to the chaos is the strength of Philly as an opponent, as Chip Kelly’s crew comes into San Francisco with an unblemished 3-0 mark.

A little bit of desperation combined with Philly’s high-flying offense makes this week three battle one to watch, yet it oddly makes it a bit of a value buy, as well. 49ers vs Eagles tickets have an average price of just $277.39 on the secondary market, while fans can get in for just $116. That will be 22% below the season average for San Francisco 49ers tickets at home this season.

While the value is there for the taking, nailing down their second win of the year won’t be an easy task for the Niners. Philly has had some slow starts in two of their first three games, but they’ve done a fantastic job at finishing strong, scoring 30+ points in every game this year. San Francisco has the talent on offense to try to match up with Nick Foles and co. through the air if need be, but the key to this game for the 49ers is obviously going to be their defense. San Francisco shut down the Cowboys in Week 1 and had it not been for four Kaepernick turnovers in Week 4, they arguably would have stifled the Bears at home, as well.

This is set up to be an intense matchup, and possibly even one that is ironically a bit of a shootout. However, for the Niners to win, they’ll have to shut down LeSean McCoy and force Nick Foles out of his comfort zone. The Redskins were able to contain McCoy last week, so San Francisco should feel confident in being able to do that. If they can extend Philly’s slow starts into a full game, they should be able to hold serve at home and hand the Eagles their first loss of the season.

49ers Lose Their Second in a Row http://49ersnews.com/2014/09/49ers-lose-second-row/ http://49ersnews.com/2014/09/49ers-lose-second-row/#comments Sun, 21 Sep 2014 23:10:58 +0000 http://49ersnews.com/?p=9056 The 49ers lost their second in a row. Once again no adjustments and dumbass penalties bite them in the ass.

I’m not gonna spend much time talking about plays, stats, and whatever is usually said after a win/loss.

I’m just gonna say that this is seriously getting hard to watch, not because of the 49ers (well part of it) but the refs and their bullshit penalties have taken the enjoyment out of the game. I’m not saying the refs were the reason the 49ers lost, but they sure as hell had a lot to do with it…again.

This is the second week in a row, where the refs have thrown flags to keep the opponent in the game and in the end it bit the 49ers in the ass.

I seriously don’t know why this team is playing so crappy in the second half. For the second week in a row the 49ers went into halftime with the lead only to come out and shit the bed. I feel some of the blame falls on OC Greg Roman, I do not think they are involving Gore as much as they do. When Gore gets touches and plays well the 49ers win. They need to regroup and figure this shit out quickly.

Not sure if it the lack of second half adjustments or the team can’t get over the penalities, but whatever it is the team better fix it quick.

Maybe those reports about Harbaugh losing the locker room, might have some legs. Who the hell knows.
