Luck is an extremely critical aspect in the game of football and nobody likes to think about it because you just can't strategize for the bounce of the ball.

Case in point: DeAngelo's fumble came about because he spun around just in time for Chancellor to have a good angle at hitting ball out. If he had simply fell to the ground rather than turning back towards the field he'd be down, we'd keep the ball and likely score.

Against Buffalo, Luke reaches out and taps Stevie Johnson as he runs by, likely on reflex alone. The ref calls an incorrect pass interference call instead of defensive holding and it negates the game-clinching interception.

Football is probably one of the most luck-influenced sports in the entire world. And it sucks that our luck has been pure shite.


Damn right. I'm not one to believe in "bad luck" or "curses" but I do know we lost, what like 16 straight coin tosses?

Unreal. Maybe we do have black cat syndrome.

John harbaugh and 49ers, Andy Reid and chiefs, (touché if you say e are only three weeks into the season) John fox and Panthers/Broncos, as much as it makes me want to barf to say it; Peyton and the Saints and Mike Smith and the Falcons.

Maybe the brass does have something to do with it....

No, it's Cam's fault and he has regressed. After all Rivera is a 10 time winning SB coach with a proven OC calling the plays.

So lets take this hypothetical situation of yours where we are just dandy with our coaches and the players aren't any good, and let us ask ourselves.... Who was in charge with putting these players on the field? Who decided they were capable of playing? Whose job was it to prepare them to play, maximize their ability, and scheme to cover their weaknesses rather than maximize their impact on the game?

 

 

 

in fact, the more I think about it, this is an utterly stupid comparison and you should be ashamed of yourself for making it. Take your loved ones and flee the country immediately.

When you factor in how much personnel has changed since 2011, and we're still losing games in the fourth quarter, all eyes turn to the head coach
