What 49ers fans are saying

Recommended Posts

Hello, and welcome to the first 2017 installment of What __________ are saying. 

 

Assumptions are being made about the Carolina Panthers offensive line.

"The Panthers o-line is not good. It will be very difficult for Cam to hit the deep ball with their slow receivers (no more Ted Ginn) and behind this porous offensive line."

This is a common sentiment as I scour the interwebs in search of 49ers fans capable of stringing together a coherent sentence (it ain't easy). While I think it is fair to question the Carolina Panthers offensive line, assuming they are not good at this point is a reach.

The Panthers have one of the best interior offensive lines in the NFL. With two new starters at the tackle positions, they very well could have an average offensive line or actually a good offensive line. The last time that happened Cam Newton won league MVP.

 

This 49ers fan thinks he knows the path to victory

"I had a dream. Five minutes into the first quarter, Thomas and Foster meet at the "Cam", Newton is knocked out of the game, Derek Anderson comes in and throws three picks and loses a fumble. At 14 to nothing, we start rotating Brieda and Mostert in, and their speed, vision and cutback ability make our interior linemen look good. Their receiving, along with Kittle and Juszczyk, allows us to coast to a 31 to zero win, with Hyde getting a second half rest."

Making NFL predictions during a mushroom induced hallucination should be avoided. Sure, they make the grain of your floor boards interesting as hell, but they do you no favors here. Now sober up and get working on my coffee order. Soy pumpkin spice latte, extra foam. If my name is spelled wrong on the cup there will be hell to pay.

 

Apparently, even sober 49ers fans think this is going to be a blowout.

Listen, I understand that Kyle Shanahan's offense gave the Carolina Panthers defense fits last year. But the Atlanta Falcons had honest to goodness NFL caliber player. Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, Devonta Freeman. Meanwhile, the 49ers are stuck with Brian Hoyer. A guy that wasn't quite good enough to keep a job with the Cleveland Browns.

 

Next up, the signing of Ben Boulware to the 49ers practice squad is a hot topic.

I understand the enthusiasm. Many Carolina Panthers fans felt the same way. Unfortunately, reality set in rather quickly. While Boulware had the ambition, he just lacked the physical tools to get the job done. It happens to so many great college players. So take it from us, you may want to temper your excitement.

 

49ers fans do like Christian McCaffrey , however. 

Pretty close i would say. He definitely is a different kind, and staying with him will be a challenge. But Reuben's closing speed may be the ticket. I hope McCaff doesn't leave Reuben in the dust. And yes, he is shifty. He's also small and hard to find amongst the behemoths out there. He has to be something special to have made it this far. He weighs less than half of Trenton . Once you see him play you will understand what he is doing starting for Panthers. He is that good.

So they get Carolina kid Boulware and we get Bay Area kid McCaffrey.  I'll take it. 

 

If you find any interesting nuggets in the poop bowl of san francisco worth posting here, please do.

CMC is starting?

They also think Josh Norman's on the team.

I think we'll go away from Norman and target Goodwin deep. I expect a bunch of running on both sides. Foster vs their running backs

Ever been in San Francisco?  I used to go somewhat often, you can get a contact high just walking around.

The main thing I took away from there is every Uber driver I had earned 6 figures as a computer programmer and had to Uber to make ends meet.

This is true, which is why I won't go anywhere near there unless I'm on expenses.  A decent hotel room will set you back $250, and you can't get a good breakfast under $20.  I can do better on both in terms of quality in Charlotte for just about half the cost.

You CAN, however, get better Hawaiian shirts there.  I know a place...

they keep saying names of people that i guess are on their team, but none of them are ringing a bell.

guess that's what happens when the bulk of your team is made of training camp castoffs from better teams in the league, like the browns.

Beathard was my nickname in junior high after an unfortunate issue with the lock on the bathroom stall door. 

 

I don't want to talk about it further.
