Uh oh, SCP, someone is gunning for your spot on the trash talk depth chart!

Since our resident smack talking king, SCP, is taking the week off due to some form of daylight savings hangover (hey, even the best get a bye week), it's fallen to the rest of the Huddle to take up the charge against a handful of irritating boils that have sprung up lately. You can tell them by their obsessive use of the numbers four and nine in their usernames even though it's a fair bet not a damn one of them could tell you the history behind the name of their supposed football team of choice. I'd lay money that has more to do with the fact that five years ago they were die hard Chargers fans since powder blue goes with more outfits than blood red and fool's gold.

San Francisco is an interesting place. It's the setting of the most abysmal documentary ever recorded, one that showed that 1 out of three men in the area were either failed Canadian comedians, single fathers, or John Stamos attempting to be sexy. It's a city that prides itself on being the "biggest small town" in America, but what it actually pulls off is being the largest suburb in America. There's literally no one who lives in San Francisco who actually works in San Francisco, at least not at a job they're proud of having. The major feature the city boasts is a bridge, which in the common tounge is known a "road with ropes made for suicide". Unlike various "bridges to nowhere" around the country, the famous bridge in San Francisco ends in a place much worse: the birthplace of Pete Carroll. Their solution to this was to try building another bridge for roughly ten billion dollars and fail at it. The only other things San Francisco is known for is having a public transportation system more fuged up than MARTA and being the only city in California where you can catch hypothermia in July. Perhaps if they could just figure out a way clean up the smell of urine left by their robust homeless population, people might actually consider moving there for more than a job with a fly by night tech start up that will be out of business in six weeks. The only other tourist attraction worth mentioning is the fact that the planet hates the area so much that it's constantly trying to get away.

Politically speaking, San Francisco voluntarily chooses to remain in California, and that's about the best you can say. California is best known recently as a state that couldn't legalize marijuana, had to be court ordered to like gay people, and still managed to find way to spend more money than they had on both problems. Granted, NC may not be much better, but at least we don't parade around as some haven of liberal tolerance. This is a state that managed to elect both Ronald Reagan and Arnold Getaneasiernametospell as governors. This is mainly to blame on the fact that Hollywood is somewhere in the area. Hollywood, which when translated from the ancient Costanoan roughly means "geographic venereal disease". To fully appreciate California politics, one needs only understand that "inflation" means that someone will eventually spend a trillion dollars making the exact same piece of crap movie that got released last weekend.

The 49'ers, as a team, seem to have a motto of "yeah but". Take for instance their dead last rating when it comes to passing offense. Everyone says "yeah but what's his name is injured". Because God knows, you need at least three pro bowl caliber receiving threats on the field at all times in order to stay relevent. Simply having Vernon Davis and Anquan Boldin couldn't possibly cut it for anyone else. There's other things to be said about this squad, but that's pretty much all that matters. Even though they went to the Super Bowl last year and have a winning record, this team and their fanbase is all about making excuses.

As for the game, San Francisco is due a reckoning for making a hero out of a back up quarterback. That reckoning comes in a form of one of their own shunned warriors, Ted Ginn. Look for The Revenge Of Ginn to be a five touchdown blockbuster when he takes one to the house on both a kickoff and punt return while also catching to 50+ yard bombs and rushing one in on an end around. Meanwhile, Cam Newton also manages to find Greg Olsen for another touchdown, and Mike Tolbert literally carries the limping corpse of Aldon Smith in with him for yet another. On defense, Melvin White records his first career pick six while Frank Gore records his first career game with negative yardage. Late in the game, Graham Gano kicks a 57 yard field goal in garbage time just to see if he can.

I'm no SCP, and I know a few others have tried, but in the spirit of the old NFC West rivalry, I couldn't just let this week slide by. The national media is expecting a team that has been thriving on a string of easy opponents to get exposed in this game, and while that will be true, it won't be the team everyone is predicting.

Panthers - 59

Minors - 10

California - loses money

I see someone has been enjoying our fine Cali weed out there in the Carolina's lol... Cant wait to see the excuses this board makes up for the L your about to receive

    • I was very intrigued by him early on. The tape (highlights) look good, and at that size still seemed to have pull away speed. Then I looked into him more, and he has some very bad fumbling issues. If I am remembering right it is like once in every 34 carries on average.  Near the bottom in the entire RB draft class.
    • Honestly I claim no expertise regarding the draft and haven't gone to the trouble of creating a board or ranking players. But I think that guys in the top 50 are often from bigger schools and get more hype than other guys.  Plus there may be guys taken at some positions much sooner or later than previous years. In the past 2 drafts, no tight ends were drafted in the first round. And the last time 4 TEs were picked in the top 3 rounds was a decade ago. This year we could see 2 tight ends taken in the first round alone and another 2 or 3 in the second round.  On the other hand there is often a run of OTs taken in the first and this might be the first draft in a while where no OTs are taken in the top 20. We could get one of the top 10 tackles at 98 or 115 where other years they would be chosen much higher. Is that because they all suck or is it that there are more attractive guys at other positions?  You make a good point about trading up. Is it better to have 2 picks at 40 and 64 instead of one at 24. I think it depends on how we see our current projected starters.  If we think we have several holes to fill and these guys are going to be impact players than don't trade up. If you think that the guy at 64 would be a rotational guy but who we want at 24 is going to be a starter and really impact the team, you trade up. It depends on what we think we need and how the draft pans out.
