  1. Andy was staring down players. I think this has been a problem in the past. Every, or so it seemed, screen or swing pass to the outside, would be watching that side of the field waiting for his target to appear or get open. Rushed, yeah, for sure. But look one way and turn and throw the other would have given the opposing D something to think about. Then there was overthrowing open receivers...
  2. A first round bust... Stealers sign Paxton Lynch to practice squad with Ben Roethlisberger sidelined Lynch, 25, hasn’t appeared in a regular season game since 2017. He entered 2018 in a competition for the Denver Broncos’ starting job, but was demoted to third string in the preseason. The Broncos released Lynch just days before the 2018 regular season. After spending the 2018 season as a free agent, Lynch signed with the Seattle Seahawks in January. Lynch appeared in three preseason games for the Seahawks, throwing one touchdown while completing 48.6 percent of his passes. The Seahawks cut Lynch in late August. Despite being selected by the Broncos with the 26th overall pick in 2016, Lynch has only started four games in the NFL. He’s thrown four touchdowns against four interceptions during his career. In what has become a common occurrence these days, the news of Lynch’s workout was met with questions about former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The 31-year-old Kaepernick has released plenty of videos this offseason suggesting he wants another shot in the NFL. The Stealers were among the teams to lose a quarterback in Week 2, providing plenty of chances for Kaepernick to get a call. While the Stealers took a shot on Lynch, the team isn’t expecting him to see the field. Mason Rudolph, who performed admirably in Week 2, will be the team’s starter going forward. A number of Stealers came out in support of Rudolph on Tuesday.
  3. That says it all. To make it worse, they go after free agents that are journeymen (Webb, the recent linebacker who I have forgotten already), waived for a reason (Hart) or who are meh at best, generally speaking. Our luck with first round draft pick speaks for itself and as far as this year, what happened to preseason golden boy, Germaine Pratt? Heaven knows we need an athletic linebacker who can cover or protect an end. One reason the booing wasn't louder was there weren't a hell of a lot of Bengals fans left in the stadium to boo after the beginning of the third quarter. Where the fuck did all the 49er fans come from. As I was leaving my parking garage, 580 Walnut, a group of about a half dozen late 20's-early 30's Hispanics with limited English and decked out in 49ers gear were leaving, too. I pointed out the easy short cut to PBS, nice guy that I am. As far as going to the games vs TV... the old chestnut about the whole game day experience. I enjoy going with my son and lady friend's son, stopping at Belterra Casino on the way home to throw away some money and eat an expensive free meal. AND... PBS on game days has the most fantastic displays of women from jail bait to MILF in outfits that make you want to cry and howl at the moon.
  4. So much this ☝ And I'm not 100% sold on Cordy Glenn. He's a placeholder until they can get someone better. Considering the Bengals buzzard luck with first round draft picks, I can see Jonah the Whale going belly up and being meh at best. As far as Andy, we all know there is Good Andy and Bad Andy. I thought Bad Andy was most apparent with overthrows of Sample and Tate that should have been nice gains or even TD's (if there were no penalties on the O Line ... a big IF) if catchable. Speaking of catchable, Ross needs to hold on to a few more before being anointed the second coming of Joe Willie Mammyjammer. Andy had a horrible game. No question. But we don't have anything close to a linebacker who can prevent big gains outside the ends. Where was Pratt after all the preseason hoo-ha? Andy isn't a rifle, he's a roller coaster. And we're along for the ride.
  5. On Monday, Zac Taylor spoke with the media and provided some injury updates regarding the players that were removed from action on Sunday. First of all, there is some good news on this front. De facto starting LT Andre Smith missed some playing time due to groin tightness, but will likely return next week. The tackle spot is the position that can least afford another injury. Carl Lawson is a little iffy after he was taken out of the game on Sunday because of a hamstring injury. Lawson said he’s fine, but Taylor wants to wait for more testing. CB B.W. Webb is going to be day-to-day. Webb left the game with an arm injury, but the Bengals are hoping he will be back any day now. DE Kerry Wynn entered concussion protocol, so he could possibly miss one game, maybe more. We’ve learned from the Cordy Glenn saga that concussions are complicated, and simply get better whenever they get better. Bad news follows the offensive line into Week 3 as LG Michael Jordan will miss some playing time. He was carted off the field with a knee bruise on Sunday. One of the bright spots on the offensive line will miss time, so his college teammate Billy Price will likely start in his place in Buffalo. See Chris Renkel's other Tweets See Joe Danneman's other Tweets Unfortunately, all of the players likely to miss time are going to be dearly missed. If Webb and Wynn won’t be able to play next week, their spots are going to be stretched pretty thin. Webb is already the team’s second slot corner, and Wynn plays a valuable role on special teams. Jordan’s absence is going to be a huge blow to an already battered offensive line.
  6. The Pittsburgh Stealers are acquiring defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick from the Miami Dolphins in exchange for a 2020 first-round pick, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: Not worth it. With his age and the injury chances are Bent will hang up his jock and concentrate on being a full time serial rapist (lock up your Wheaties and Cheeros, no one is safe!) and the Squeels won't have a first round pick for a new booty snatcher.
  7. Great call on that one. No kidding but I would trade Mixon for Trent Williams and hopefully a draft choice to boot. Very unimpressed with him even behind the piss poor excuse for a line.
  8. *** Don't want to list this under "The Good" for fear of inviting bad Karma. Besides, we will never see him again. Sports 49ers offensive tackle Staley suffers broken fibula in win over Bengals The San Francisco 49ers dominated the Cincinnati Bengals 41-17 on Sunday, but lost a key piece of their offensive line in victory. Starting left tackle Joe Staley was carted off the field in the third quarter and coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters the six-time Pro Bowler has a broken fibula. Shanahan said Staley would likely be out for "less than eight weeks" and probably will not be put on the injured reserve list. "Any time you lose your left tackle it's always significant," Shanahan said. "Especially when the guy who backed [Staley] up, we lost in preseason. So, we got [Justin] Skule, we got [Daniel] Brunskill, guys who'll have to step it up. "Unfortunate for Joe. I know how bad he wants to be out there, but once we accept the injury at least we'll still get him back later this year." Staley, 35, has been with the 49ers since the team selected him as a first-round pick in the 2007 NFL Draft. He has made three All-Pro teams in his 12-year career. San Francisco are off to a strong 2-0 start in 2019 and will host the 0-2 Pittsburgh Stealers in Week 3.
  9. Drew Brees thumb surgery, out probably for the year. Apparently broke it when he fell on his ass.
  10. Going to ruin his social life for awhile and no more double dates with Antonio Brown.
  11. https://bengalswire.usatoday.com/2019/09/15/49ers-bengals-good-bad-ugly-recap/?utm_source=smg&utm_medium=wasabi&utm_content=home-her The Good — Tyler Eifert got involved early on his touchdown, selling a block first before putting his frame to use on an easy scoring catch. — Creative screen and route combos from the coaching staff. But some of those were called back on flags or ruined via inept line play. Still, nice to see good creativity, which is more than fans have seen over the past few years. — William Jackson grabbed a pick, the first by a corner in more than a year. Nice to see some playmaking ability returning to the position. — John Ross went for an exciting 66-yard score with less than a minute left. ** a couple of drops that he should have had. Becoming a part of the John Ross Legend. --- The traffic out of the parking lot and on the way home out of the game. The Bad — No room for the running game yet again early in the game. That ended up being a theme as the game went on. — Preston Brown whiffed on the first-quarter screen that went almost 40 yards for a score. His game spiraled out of control from there. — Andre Smith was disastrous for most of the day at left tackle. He wasn’t in Seattle for Week 1, but he imploded at home. John Jerry eventually worked in for him on the left edge. — Another Randy Bullock miss. — Andy Dalton started withering near the end of the first half. Almost threw a pick-six, then missed on a big completion to Alex Erickson **overthrew Sample and Tate on what could have been big plays.. On a later drive before the half, threw it right to the other team while on the run. — The Bengals were outgained 222-8 in yardage during the third quarter, as an illustration of how terrible this collapse was. --- The officials called an offsides on 62, Redmon. Probably meant Hart but amusing. --- The concession crew fills bottles with water from the sinks in the restrooms and sells to dupes in the stands for $3.00. The Ugly — The first drive at Paul Brown Stadium this year. Flag on special teams, Andy Dalton sacked, Dalton drops handoff to Mixon, quick pass, punt. — San Francisco’s first drive? Blown Cincinnati coverage, easy points. — Tackling. Angles. Blown coverages. Everything about the defense, really. It led to 572 yards of 49ers offense on just 12 drives and 8.4 yards per play. — Injuries to Carl Lawson and others. Michael Jordan was carted offwith a knee injury. — Teams that start 0-2 virtually never make the playoffs. --- Where the fuck did all the 49er fans come from? Even saw Kapernick and Montana jerseys. Looks like Cincinnati will be the hot road trip for visiting teams. --- You can't build a team with waiver wire trash and retreads. This current cluster fuck is directly related to the past number of years of piss poor drafts and injuries to top picks.

  13. I have a square avatar. Speaking of test... Yeah, still works. Carry on and Pittsburgh Sucks
  14. Class act and great that his daughter is doing well.
  15. Dear John Ross III. Stay healthy. Catch the ball. Your friend (subject to change), High School Harry
  16. The Bengals are historically and notoriously bad at covering tight ends. Tight ends are a rarity on the streets of San Francisco but the Castro District 69ers have a good tight end in George Kittle. https://www.cincyjungle.com/2019/9/13/20861667/film-room-can-49ers-te-george-kittle-be-stopped Hopefully the Bengals will be able to fill the void and clog up this San Francisco asshole.
  17. Or water fountain if you can find one and it has enough water pressure to fill the bottle and you want to stand there for five minutes.
  18. Can we lock this thread? It has run its course and time to move on.
  19. Note/reminder to those going to the game ... As Mr Schooler noted elsewhere, this may be the hottest home game ever. Definitely close but hot nonetheless. The Bengals do permit unopened bottles of water to be carried into the stadium. I usually take one and refill it from the sink in the restroom throughout the game. The concession stands inside will not give you an empty cup, will sell you one for the price of a soda. The fans go ape shit bitching over this but the company (not Mike Brown) keeps track of how much soda they sell by counting cups gone. The policy is somewhat different in Pittsburgh where they refill their water bottles in the urinals and bring their own hot dog buns for their famous Floater Sandwiches. Little kraut, little dark mustard, BOOM. Pittsburgh Kielbasa. Carry on.
  20. Take Fat Randy out of the equation and the average drops significantly.
  21. Boomer is the cream of that crop. Would be great to see him make it and I am not a Boomer super fan.
