  1. He could be the Tom Dempsey of safeties. Okay, we'd probably need to take a few more fingers. But still...
  2. This really is my worst nightmare. I don't know which team I hate more, but really, I think it's the Niners. BUT...BUT...there's no way in hell I can pull for the Falcons, ever. What the hell do I do? I'll have a hard time watching the SB too. Pats/Whiners SB? OMG, just jab me in the eye with a sharp stick! This season has welly and truly sucked ass.
  3. A man stabbed outside Candlestick Park before Sunday's game was attacked because he was wearing a Dallas Cowboys jersey, San Francisco police said Monday. Two San Francisco men, Kristopher Viana, 22, and Alexandro Arguelles, 30, were arrested on suspicion of attacking the victim, a 27-year-old resident of Elk Grove (Sacramento County), as he walked with five of his friends toward Candlestick Park for the 49ers' game against the New York Giants at about 1:30 p.m. Investigators said Viana and Arguelles verbally harassed the man because of his jersey, and the situation quickly escalated to blows. Viana and Arguelles left, but soon returned with a knife, police said. Police said Viana tried to stab the man's girlfriend and another man in the group before he stabbed the victim, whose name has not been released. Arguelles allegedly punched at least one person as he and Viana fled, said police spokesman Sgt. Michael Andraychak. They were arrested a few minutes later, about a half mile away at Blanken Avenue and Executive Park Boulevard. The victim is recovering at a hospital, Andraychak said. Viana and Arguelles were booked into county jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy.

  4. So maybe this is where G. Williams is spending his time (and money) these days..... ------------------ TUSTIN, Calif. (AP) — In a pee-wee version of the NFL's bounty scandal, the head coach and league president of an Orange County children's football team have been suspended amid allegations that players were offered up to $50 in cash to knock opponents out of games. National Pop Warner officials suspended Darren Crawford of the Tustin Pee Wee Red Cobras and Tustin President Pat Galentine until the program can investigate and rule on the allegations, according to the Orange County Register (bit.ly/OsCHwh). The investigation is expected to take at least several weeks, Pop Warner spokesman Josh Pruce said. The Cobras, consisting mainly of 10- and 11-year-olds, advanced to the Pop Warner Super Bowl last year and finished the season with a 12-1 record. A group of parents alleged that during the season, Crawford and a then-assistant coach, Richard Bowman, offered youngsters cash for big hits and to knock targeted opposing players out of playoff games. One boy left a game because of a mild concussion and another former assistant coach, John Zanelli, claims the player that hit him was rewarded with cash. Crawford, Bowman and Galentine consistently have denied that any cash incentives were paid. Pop Warner's Orange Empire Conference commissioner, Bobby Espinosa, said he found no evidence of a bounty program after reviewing allegations from six parents and four players. They alleged that bounties of between $20 and $50 were offered during three playoff games at the end of the 2011 season, the Register reported. Galentine sent Tustin Pop Warner board members an email Thursday about the suspensions. "The singular focus of our board continues to be the safety and well-being of our kids and the continued success of TPW," he wrote, urging support for young players who "have been placed in the crossfire of this issue by no choice of their own." Former Tustin Pop Warner President Mark Gutierrez was named acting president during Galentine's absence. The NFL suspended four players after concluding they were involved in a pay-for-injury bounty pool that ran for three seasons from 2009-2011 and offered cash rewards for knocking opposing players out of games. The players were reinstated after they successfully appealed the suspensions. New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton was suspended for the season.

  5. If I'm available, you should draft me. I'm a playmaker, baby!
  6. The Shuttle Endeavor flew right by my office today on a piggyback ride to its final home. This is from my window in Oakland. Pretty damn cool!
  7. If our D doesn't create turnovers, we will continue to lose. Period. I've seen nothing in pre-season or in our first two games that makes me think this defense is capable of forcing fumbles, pressuring the QB, or intercepting a pass. Something has got to change soon or we might find ourselves in a deep hole that we can't dig out of. When our O is forced to play from behind, we get the INT's and sacks that we saw the last two weeks.
  8. What I saw on Sunday wasn't just a lack of understanding the new system, it was a lack of skill, speed and strength. It hasn't been that long since we saw the likes of Jay Bellamy and Jason David jawing at each other with their hands held out in the air asking for help after getting torched for a 70 yard pass and catch, confused and disoriented. That's what I saw these last two weeks, pure, unadulterated, mental and physical weakness. Our DB's and Safeties are constantly 5 yards out of position and don't seem to have any nose for the ball at all. They can't jump a route because they're still trying to catch up to the receiver who left them standing flatfooted at the LOS. They don't jam anybody because they seem afraid to disturb the WR's route running. Is this Spags defense? I don't know, but I can't blame the system for everything. These guys just aren't very good. I love Jabari, but he's obviously being hampered by his injury and he can't do it all himself and Patrick Robinson has been nothing but a disappointment. Don't even get me started on Jenkins and Harper! You remember them, right? Watching the Falcon's last night really made me realize that we have nobody at LB or on the D-Line that can get to the QB. I hate those bastards, but they were all over Peyton and made him look average. He's going to tear us up if we play D like we have the last two weeks. /venting
