What Kyle Shanahan can learn from Sean Payton’s red-zone run game

Check out my video breakdown of the 49ers’ and Saints’ run games in the red zone.

Here are the Cliff’s Notes:

The 49ers run game struggles especially inside the opponent’s 12-yard line, because it lacks creativity and diversity.

  1. The 49ers never ran the ball with six offensive linemen on the field in the red zone last season, while the Saints ran the ball with six offensive linemen on the field 17 times in the red zone. The 49ers should use Joshua Garnett as their sixth offensive lineman next season.
  2. Inside the opponent’s 12-yard line, the only run play the 49ers called more than once was inside zone. They need a second run play they can use consistently in the low red zone. The Saints use a G Lead, in which they pull the front-side guard. The 49ers should use this, too.
  3. The 49ers gained just eight yards total on shotgun runs in the redzone, while the Saints gained 94 yards on 26 shotgun runs in the red zone, because the Saints had a special red-zone read-option package featuring Taysom Hill and the 49ers didn’t. Next season, the 49ers can use Jerick McKinnon the way the Saints use Hill, because McKinnon played quarterback in high school.
  4. The 49ers could use a few new trick run plays for the red zone, because those often produce touchdowns. The Saints have some of the most clever trick plays in the NFL. I break down the 49ers can steal in the video above.

  1. 1. Adding a 6th offensive lineman inside the 5 yard line makes a lot of sense. I’m just not sure it’d be Garnett.
    2. I think Shanny would agree your running game has to be more diverse down there, and I have no doubt it will be.
    3/4. Yes, Shanny’s bag of McKinnon Trix disappointed all the kids when the injury rabbit bit his knee. I think it’s safe to assume the kids will get their share of Trix this year, especially with the addition of Samuel, Hurd, and Coleman….

  2. Another major weakness the Niners did not address in the draft, was the O line. Garnett’s natural position is the LG, and Tomlinson did not have a stellar season last year. Person also had blocking issues, and the interior O line had a 62 rating, I believe. On a couple of those videos Tomlinson helped double team, and let a defender come in untouched.
    .
    If they go into this season with the same lineup, and expect better results, they will be sadly disappointed. It all starts in the trenches, like AES mentioned, so I hope they make astute assessments and prudent changes.
    .
    Taking a page out of the Saints playbook is smart. Maybe they should have kept their other third round pick, and selected Kamara, the player the Saints drafted with the pick they obtained from the Niners. Heck, they should have drafted Kamara instead of Witherspoon, who the Niners picked just before they traded away the next pick.
    .
    Copying plays from the Patriots playbook would also be smart, because they use a fullback.
    .
    Hmmm, having a QB who is a dual threat, to run or pass, may also be a good idea, especially on those read options. Too bad they passed on Watson and Lamar Jackson. They will not have JG run at all, since he is recovering from an ACL. Oh wait, McKinnon is also recovering from an ACL, so he needs to prove he is fully recovered, before counting on him so much.

    1. It all starts in the trenches is very true!.. and every year they should make a great addition to it ...and make astute assessments and prudent changes.

    2. So IOW, because the Niners didn’t do all the things you mentioned, and will probably have as many injuries this year as last, they will not be able to score in the red zone, and therefore we should all find something else to do until next season (starting with FA and the draft). But…but…but…then nobody will bother to read Grant’s column. Drat.

      1. No, it will just mean that Grant will be a- must read, as he dissects the failures and assigns blame.
        .
        Considering that about half the proposed starters all have injury issues, and 23% of the team could not participate in the practices, attrition is a given.
        .
        According to the Homers, it is playoffs or bust. I think an 8 win season will be an incremental improvement.

        1. As I’m sure you’d agree Sebbie, labeling someone a homer is completely in the eye of the beholder–as it were. Some on this blog would label you a homer for embracing an 8 win season.

          Homer is a fun label, no? Just slather it around…

        2. According to the Homers, it is playoffs or bust.

          What homer has said that? Quit making stuff up. According to Grant, homers inexplicably embrace the team through endless losing seasons.

          1. “homers inexplicably embrace the team through endless losing seasons.”
            I would call that a fan.

            To me a “homer” is someone that constantly tries to spin everything into a positive. A homer will always see every move by the team as a home run and a great idea. Every player signed is an all-star. A homer will go out of their way to explain and justify their team using a 4th round draft pick on a punter.

            The homer’s favorite part of the year is training camp because everybody looks like a stud and they can work themselves into a froth talking about how the team is heading to the SuperBowl.

            1. Then I see no “homers” here CFC, just varying degrees of fandom.

              However I do see a lot of armchair know it alls with delusions of thinking they could run and coach the team better than those that do. Call them the single word insult that fits.

            2. This is the year that ShanaLynchies vision comes to fruition and they ride the backs of Jimmy G and the Bosa Constrictor to the promised land….or playoff contention.

              1. Which will have to happen to a great extent to reach your predicted 11 wins.

                I dub thee Jack Homer!

    3. What are you talking about, they drafted Justin Skule, 6-6 315lb OT from Vanderbilt. That was an oline addition.

      Of their needs, oline was far down the list about equal to that of RB.

  3. Good breakdown hope Kyle is reading this blog, Grant did Kyle ever use any red zone running plays that were successful when he was OC of the Falcon’s?
    Sebbie sorry about your plant, your lucky you didn’t get injured.

    1. This is why I do not like catfishes. You seem to think I would complain about a Bougainvillea, when I have not planted one since the cold freeze in 2006.
      .
      Please do not encourage the trolls, catfishing.

      1. A severed lawn mower blade can fly in any direction and is no laughing matter.

        Neither was Seb and son’s improperly maintained weedeater which sparked on a patch of weeds causing his neighbors house to burn (as Seb, himself, described on this site 2 years ago).

        (A tip for those interested in hiring a groundskeeping company)

        One golden rule I’ve learned over the years is that groundskeeping companies need to practice safety first and foremost, if on your property.

        The video below probably is a mirror image of Seb’s groundskeeping company:

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKX0ByzsB4M

        1. Whats more, I KNOW fires started carelessly can cause damage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          For cryin out loud, Sebs—you have to be more careful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. It doesn’t seem like KS uses the FB effectively in the RZ. Neither play you showed had him lead blocking at all. Both times the FB went to the ground blocking. That can’t be good.

    1. Wilson, it’s early, so don’t get discouraged.

      In a unnoticed move by Shannahan, the Niners drafted a WR from Baylor in the 3rd round.
      For some reason, folks focus mainly on his Baylor days while I’ve been enamored with his Tennessee days.

      Hurd is currently considered the only WR/RB on the 49ers roster and he is also the largest at
      226 LBS. FB, Kyle Juszczyk, will definitely be blocking for this “redzone beast” inside the Niner 20 yard line, and with the addition of Deebo Samuel paired with TE, Kittle, this team will be unstoppable there.

      Here’s a video from Hurd’s Tennessee days:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FYyXc3N7hk

    2. Tom, not discouraged just surprised at KS’s play calling in the RZ. I am interested to see if the FO got enough pieces to fix some of the teams issues.

      1. It seems like if you are going to use a FB in the red zone you want him blocking in a way that moves the ball forward. Both times in the plays Grant shows Juice picks up an edge rusher really far out of the play. I guess I don’t understand what Kyle is doing with the FB down there

  5. I don’t think it’s prudent to take Hurd, a guy who left a school because he didn’t want to be used as a short yardage back to switch to WR, to be put back as a short yardage back with the Niners. Hurd is too tall and is a big target for linemen and linebackers to take shots at. He’ll get hurt doing that. Tevin Coleman’s speed will be a great advantage ala Kamara and is adept at making people miss. It looks like Shanny brought in several players who could make defenders miss either by their strength or their juke moves. Getting in the end zone remains a problem but hopefully the new line up and Grant’s advice will help improve that.

  6. Hoping more time playing together will help.

    In ZBS the uncovered offensive linemen needs to time when to disengage from double teams. That first play was a mess, but the first play was doomed even if the execution was better. The numbers disadvantage on the left side affected the blockers timing.

    1. I wonder to what degree the QB has to adjust the play or audible out of it if he spots the defense stacking up against a play giving an indicator that the play will fail before the ball is even snapped.

  7. Last year my motto was “Patience.”
    This year it’s “the lights finally go on.”
    It’s going to be a fun season.

  8. good read grant! your like a coin……2 different sides……on one hand….you post opinionated hatefull BS to stir the pot…..then you surprise everyone with a great read that is informative and fact based! your a modern day Jekyll n Hyde! lol

  9. Just bring back Jimmy Raye’s taser formation from 2009…
    http://www.espn.com/espn/wire/_/section/nfl/id/4395495

    In part…

    “SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Around the league, it’s generally known as the “Wildcat” formation. San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye refers to his version as the “Taser.”

    By any name, it’s a new wrinkle for a team aiming to upgrade its abysmal offensive numbers of recent years.

    “Since the pads have gone on, it was our first foray into it,” Raye said Wednesday after the 49ers began 11-on-11 team drills with receiver-kick returner Michael Spurlock lined up at quarterback in shotgun formation and running back Frank Gore lined up in the slot at receiver.

    With receiver Arnaz Battle also taking some direct snaps at quarterback, the 49ers proceeded to run about a dozen plays with the unique formation that had quarterbacks Shaun Hill, Alex Smith and Damon Huard lining up far wide at receiver.

    Spurlock and Battle either ran with the ball or handed off to Gore and running back Glen Coffee. Spurlock even threw a pass out of the formation, completing it to Isaac Bruce.”

  10. I’d like to see Kentavius Street get a shot at lead blocker inside the 5 yrd line. I know that he’s not a RB, but given his freakish leg strength he could move would be tacklers out of the way to clear a path for the ball carrier.

    Yes, Jucz is the lead blocker in this situation but he doesn’t weight 280 and do a 700 lbs leg lift.

    1. One play I would like to see in the Red Zone, is from inside the 5 yard line, and they line up Arik Armstead as a TE. He takes 2 steps up field, then moves towards the pylon. JG throws the ball 11 feet high near the side line, so Armstead either high points the ball, or it goes out of bounds. Armstead could also move to the back of the end zone, and use his basketball skills to jump high and catch the ball 11 feet in the air. By playing ‘over the rim’, no DB is tall enough to out jump Armstead.
      .
      Instead of Street, they should go jumbo, and use an O lineman to block in Juice’s position. At 315 lbs, Joshua Garnett could be very effective as a short yardage blocker.

      1. Seb,
        I hear you. But Street is much more athletic than Garnett. Of course, these are merely fun musings right now. Shanahan would likely frown at our ideas 😣 (ha!)

          1. Seb,
            I’m not dismissing your idea. As I said every idea about how the team can use their personnel is fun musings (at least for me).

            Using Garnett, Thomas or Street as a lead blocker inside the 5 can make it a little interesting, but Shanahan, no doubt already has a plan.

            On a totally different topic, and sport, did you happen to catch the home run derby the Yankees and Boston put on in the MLB first ever excursion to the UK?
            Sheesh, talk about scripting a game.
            Embarrassing devaluing of the integrity of the sport.

            1. Yup. I did not bother to watch that, and glad I did not.
              .
              I have been concentrating on the Giants, since the Sharks and Warriors are done, and the Niners have the off season before TC. Sure wish Farhan Zaidi had added Dickerson and Yastrzemski earlier in the season, before they went 11 games under .500.
              .
              I have also been interested in the Women’s World Cup. Rapinoe is the star, but I really am impressed with Tobin Heath.
              .
              Street, with his impressive strength, is a good option. Heck maybe they should let him carry the ball, on third and short.

              1. Seb,
                I did the unthinkable a couple of years ago when I suggested to my son that the Giants should trade Bumgardner while he still had some value.

                He didn’t talk to me for a few days, but I was playing the Bill Walsh concept of trading a star with value for younger players.
                MadBum has had a couple of very good outings of late and now I’m back on board with trading him.

                Heck, I’d even swallow my pride if he goes to the putrid dodgers if it allows us to garner a couple of young players from their farm club.

              2. Ack, no to the Smog Doggies. I never want them to win, and it may be handing them a World Series if they did that.
                .
                Never help a hated enemy. Imagine what it would feel like if MadBum pitched against the Giants in a Dodger uniform.
                .
                A better destination would be Atlanta. Madbum would be 4 hours away by car from his home town. The Giants could bundle MadBum(P) and Joe Panik(2B), for Ian Anderson(P) and Ozzie Albies(2B).
                .
                The Brewers have some good prospects, too.

              3. I’m a dodger fan and I wouldn’t trade for Bum. He’s not what he was but has a name, which will make him overpriced.

                That’s not to say I don’t respect him, I absolutely do. I just don’t think the risk reward weighs out right when looking at the dodgers farm system.

            2. Aes

              If Josh Garnett, or Solomon Thomas had graduated from Alabama or Clemson, they would have been traded or released by now…They benefit from Alumnus Bias being Stanford grads. We (49er faithful) have been cheering them for four and three years respectively…hoping to find some spark that might justify their taking up space on the roster other than being extremely high draft choices. Total waste…If you’re tired of me pointing it out… think of how tired I am of pointing it out….
              n

              1. Ore, I may not want any vestige of the Baalke drafts, and am glad they cleaned house, but I am a fan of Garnett. He is an Outland trophy winner, and I like how he plays. He knocked down Aaron Donald, which got him mad, and he put Garnett on the ground. Then Garnett got up and played harder. That shows moxie. I truly believe that he would shine, if allowed to play in his natural position.

              2. Oregon, I wonder if it’s more about how high they were drafted rather than what school they were drafted from? Just a thought. I do recognize both Harbaugh and Lynch have Stanford connections. It seems that to cut these guys after spending such a high pick is embarrassing for the FO.

              3. Ore,
                The faith in Garnett baffles me. To me he is essentially a worse version of Ward. He’s not as good, is less versatile, and is healthy for fewer games.

  11. Good news. Marquise Goodwin claimed the million dollar prize in the 40 Yards of Gold competition.
    .
    I hope they use Goodwin more on jet sweeps and reverses, along with stretching the field.

    1. Sebbie….

      Just imagine how righteously indignant you’d be if Goodwin injured himself during his run. You’d be all over the GM and HC for having permitted Goodwin’s participation. Imagine…

      Heck, Grant could have used (again…) the Al Davis tirade about loosing the season before the season starts–needlessly exposing players to physical injury.

      1. Imagine how surprised I would be if you would stop haunting my posts.
        .
        ‘Loosing’? learn to spell before trying to write a screed.
        .
        Injuries happen. They are a part of life. They are almost a certainty in the NFL. Maybe Saleh should not coach his players to play with violence.
        .
        The Niners should factor in attrition in their overall preparations, and not borrow trouble by selecting injured players. Selecting injured players then crying about losing because of all the injuries? They have only themselves to blame.
        .
        Yes, I am kinda disappointed that they did not trade back and get a boatload of picks from that precious number 2 pick. Instead, they selected an injured player, who became more injured in non padded practices.
        .
        I was not worried about Goodwin running. I am sure he warmed up and stretched properly before sprinting. He did not block or get tackled by another competitor. I would have been more mad if Goodwin had jumped off an elephant, and became impaled on a tusk.

        1. Given your history of posting and how you twist circumstances to claim moral authority, I have a good sense for how you’d react had Goodwin been injured. You’d have gone apoplectic.

          Sorry for the misspelling, Your Grace. Please, don’t eat my chickens.

          1. You even diss me for something that did not happen, so it is just so like what Baalke reminds me of.
            .
            Baalke was a cancer, and he dismantled a SB team. He dissed the players, and delighted in cutting players on the team bus. Baalke did not deserve to be GM. He whiffed on an entire draft class, and he not only stabbed people in the back, he gave the knife a twist.

          2. You’ve got a weird thing for Seb Gomer. I think he’s your scapegoat for all the crap you’d like to say about the Niners but don’t.

              1. This was a classic exchange…

                Ka-Zing! The Vicar of Verbosity strikes!

              2. You, on the other hand, seem to dwell in your incredible shrinking mind.

                Pontificating on topics you have absolutely zero knowledge of. Where have we seen that before? It must be every posting of yours, football related. Yeah, that’s it.

            1. Wrong, Captain.

              We’ve all heard Seb’s stuff for maybe 5 plus yrs-there’s a history involved.

              Hint: when someone says or implies that they are overflowing with love and tolerance while you, with a different opinion, are filled with hate…..and then you listen and find it’s not quite the picture that’s been painted……….when you admit that you like to say provocative things just to stir people up and mess with their heads (see “Prime”) and take huge pride and vanity in thinking that you have out-maneuvered someone verbally because of your brilliance……………..those people get needled.
              More insight needed? See “Career Politician”.

              By the way-Seb love’s the Parley veux……………this is his sport since he cant play soccer anymore. This is not meant to be patronizing but Sebs is actually a good guy–he just likes to stir the pot. You can see it coming a mile away.

              1. Saw, you cannot call some one a Nazi, and expect no pushback, especially when you are projecting.
                .
                Talk about intolerance, and stirring the pot…..

              2. Stop with the nazi stuff, Seb.

                1) That was years ago, and you should remember it in the context it was used, instead of twisting its intent like a pretzel to play the victim. If your still upset-and you clearly are, then I apologize.
                2) Start thinking about the intended spirit of a comment, its context–rather than pretending your overflowing with LooOOve and holding grudges for years……..
                3) I don’t hate you or Kap, tho you have falsely accused me of “hate” many, many times-an old uber lib trick.

                Lets stick to the 9ers-OK?

              3. Saw, I have always preferred talking about the Niners. You are the one bringing up wild ulterior motives.
                .
                Please comment on the 10 points I wrote about improving the Red Zone offense, and maybe present your Ideas about how they can score more.
                .
                I really hope they just keep Hurd as a WR. If they use him as a FB, and he incurs a concussion, he may quit. Likewise, tight ends need to block, so they should just use Kaden Smith or Levine Toilolo as blocking TEs. I sadly think that Celek may be on the bubble, which may burst.

              4. Yes, Donald, why do you think they call them ‘Shrinks’? You mind is now minuscule, along with the content of your commen

                Not to disparage the dignity of manual labor, but it’s obvious you owe your existence to your back and not your mind.

                Still trying to please daddy?

              5. No, Donald, an education gave me the knowledge to become a landscape contractor. My work in the UCD Arboretum gave me a good education on California natives and drought tolerant plants. I learned about designing landscapes at UCD.
                .
                Yes, it also took hard work, but I can claim my lifetime of achievements were due to the education I received.
                .
                You, on the other hand, seem to dwell in your incredible shrinking mind.

              6. 3) I don’t hate you or Kap, tho you have falsely accused me of “hate” many, many times-an old uber lib trick.

                Cat, please don’t blame Seb’s pathologies on liberal or conservative or any other political standing.

            2. Captain, Cassie has her nose bent out of shape, ever since Baalke was kicked into the gutter. This is her way of getting back, by trolling and trying to create a controversy. She learned from the best. Backstabbing is an art form for her. She says things like the Niners will go 0-16, then defend herself by saying she was just joking about it. Typical troll tripe. Her incessant snark is meant to shout down posters like me, but I just use her posts to rip Baalke, and now Paraag, because they are what is wrong about the Niners.
              .
              Is JL the answer? I hope so. Too bad he has made some grievous errors, like the whole Foster fiasco, but he is trying hard, and learning on the job.
              .
              Is KS the answer? Maybe, if he does not let his ego get in the way. I just wish he would give a damn, improve his assessment skills and learn from his mistakes.
              .
              Back to Cassie, she is getting so desperate, she is spending hours researching the archives, in a vain attempt to dish dirt. The others are like little yapping dogs at my heels. They get even louder when I drop kick them across the road. But, like a moth to a flame, they cannot stop from immolating themselves. Some day, they will learn their lesson.

              1. Seb,
                I may be wrong, but I thought that CFB once claimed that she was really a guy who just uses that moniker on this blog site?

              2. Back to Cassie, she is getting so desperate, she is spending hours researching the archives, in a vain attempt to dish dirt. The others are like little yapping dogs at my heels. They get even louder when I drop kick them across the road. But, like a moth to a flame, they cannot stop from immolating themselves. Some day, they will learn their lesson.

                That this is only apparent to Seb shows the level of self-awareness going on here.

              3. Seb

                about that cassie being a female name….Don’t say that around Cazamir Banaczak

              4. Your 10 points?

                I’ll keep it simple. while I don’t think he’s had all the weapons he has needed to fully implement his offence until maybe (maybe not) just now, I do think he doesn’t seem to see the need for power down in the red zone. I think spreading the O as wide as possible and having Garnett or Street or Hurd run it between the tackles is a great idea.
                They need the equivalent of a Rathman, or use the FB more in that capacity. You can’t stack the box on this team, or you will pay dearly-even down near the goal line. There is nobody on this O that can be ignored…………..So spread it out and run it up their arse.

                This year, barring another huge rash of injuries-it’s up to the coaching staff. They have much of what they need.

              5. Yes, Donald, why do you think they call them ‘Shrinks’? You mind is now minuscule, along with the content of your comments.

              6. Ore, Cas Banaczak was an old school football player. 3 yards and a cloud of dust, type blocker.
                .
                Cassie is short for Cassandra.

              7. Saw, do you really think they should spread them out wide, then gash them up the middle?
                .
                Smart idea. Hope they can do that.
                .
                I agree, they have the talent, now they need the coaching to maximize their potential.

  12. Run Gore up the middle case closed…oh wait they got rid of the GOAT niner back…and got nothing in return..don’t think the RZ will be fixed…who is the OC? don’t have one of those either.

    1. Seb

      I believe that you have confused Caz Banaczak who was an OT for the 49ers with ‘ Pete ‘ Banaczek who was a RB for the Raiders

  13. thanks CFB…..Mullins is good…..get rid of Beat Hard oh wait, nobody wants him….can’t trade JimmyCrappola too expensive….the team has boxed in the QB position

  14. Grant…

    Please add a ‘counter’ widget (like an odometer) to this blogsite. The widget would show the cumulative number of visits to 49ers.pressdemocrat.com and the number of current visitors (a ‘live’ moment-by-moment count). The numbers would refresh automatically (as automatic as the blog’s technology platform an user browsers would allow).

    Could look like this on 1 November 2019:

    Total visits: 8,378,228 (count starts when widget is implemented; say, 1 August 2019)
    Current visitors: 243

    With the widget, we’d all have an opportunity to learn just how heavily trafficked your blog is (or isn’t). In using a dynamic widget, we’d see when traffic (visits) peaks and tails-off.

    Would be fun to know if only 8-10 individuals are posting on a topic, while several hundred others are just visiting (not posting). Or, 8-10 people are posting and only another 3 are visiting.

    Show numbers only. No user names, no geographic location, no labeling of homers.

    1. It would be interesting. So far Seb has commented and been mentioned 55 times, you 24. Razor must be sick he only has 4 posts. When there are only 90+ comments that tells you something.

        * Since you used your father as proof of your Intelligence. If you would be so kind, please providing the following information so the rest of us may appreciate his work and intellectual acumen:
        1) Was he a tenured, or adjunct professor at UCD?
        2) Please provide us with his publishings, books he wrote and if possible, his master’s thesis and doctoral dissertation(s).
        3) A UCD website (if any), where we can access this materiel?

        1. Quit being so desperate. He was Phi Beta Kappa, Phi Kappa Phi, if those names mean anything to you.
          .
          My son enrolled in Cal with a 4.6 GPA due to his advanced studies and community service work. He scored 2340 on his SAT, so it runs in the family. He now works for Google, who have a rigorous screening process.
          .
          Tell me your bona fides, since you claim to be such a genius.

          1. Seb
            “Quit being so desperate. He was Phi Beta Kappa, Phi Kappa Phi, if those names mean anything to you.”
            * REALLY SEB? How is my asking you about your father being DESPERATE, since you brought him up?
            * I didn’t ask you about your son Seb, I asked you about your father and his work. But rather than being proud of your father and providing said material, you’re response is classic paranoia….. * I thought you were proud of him Seb, so what are you afraid of? Don’t you want to share his work with the rest of us?

            * “Tell me your bona fides, since you claim to be such a genius.” * Seb, show me one example of where I’ve made any such claim! Is this another of your delusions of persecution? If your father was what you claim he was, please share his work. What have you got to lose?

            1. Ha, I knew it. Have you obtained your GED?
              .
              You are the one who is so desperate to appear smarter than me.
              .
              Then you turtle, when confronted. So typical.
              .
              I bring up my son because there is a tradition in our family to put a high priority on education. He had excelled, but I do not claim to be as smart as him. My grades were more modest.
              .
              GEEP, try to comprehend that my father was a genius compared to you. You would really not understand his thesis. I am extremely proud of him.

              1. Seb
                This may be difficult for you to comprehend, but it’s NOT about ME!
                * YOU brought your father up, not me! You not only broached the subject, but you used him as proof of your intelligence! So why are you now trying to make this about me, when we’ve never discussed the subject of my intelligence.
                * SO WHY DO YOU KEEP TRYING TO CHANGE THE SUBJECT? As a friend, interested in only in his academic accomplishments…….I ask you again:
                1) Was your father a tenured, or adjunct professor at UCD?
                2) Please provide us with his publishings, books he wrote and if possible, his master’s thesis and doctoral dissertation(s).
                3) A UCD website (if any), where we can access his materiel?
                * If you’re not willing to share your father’s work Seb, WHY did YOU bring him up? Are you NOT proud of his achievements?

              2. I did not bring up an IQ test, but you seem fixated on it.
                .
                Show us your bona fides to make you such an authority on intelligence.
                .
                You do not even know what a Phi Kappa Phi honoree is.
                .
                Do you know what doxxing means?

          2. You don’t get a boost in GPA for community service.

            Also, Google has more temp/contract employees than full time employees. You’d be surprised the “background screening” done for these employees. Saying your son works at Google means a lot of nothing if you’ve ever worked at Google.

            Also, nothing screams “not true” more than someone who makes extremely outlandish claims and has never backed it up.

            No one here cares that much, but if you make such claims and don’t provide proof its nothing but Fake News buckaroo.

              1. Seb
                * “I did not bring up an IQ test, but you seem fixated on it.” “Show us your bona fides to make you such an authority on intelligence.” “You do not even know what a Phi Kappa Phi honoree is.” “Do you know what doxxing means?”
                ** You keep trying to change the subject Seb, and make it about ME! But as I said before, IT’S NOT ABOUT ME! You brought your “Phi Beta Kappa, Phi Kappa Phi” father up, not me. * As a friend, interested only in your father’s academic accomplishments…….I ask you again:
                1) Was your father a tenured, or adjunct professor at UCD?
                2) Please provide his publishings, books he wrote and if possible, his master’s thesis and doctoral dissertation(s).
                3) A UCD website (if any), where we can access his materiel?

                * If you’re not willing to share your father’s work Seb, WHY DID YOU BRING HIM UP? Are you NOT proud of his achievements SEB? Does your Phi Beta Kappa, Phi Kappa Phi fathers acceptance of you make your inner child insecure? As a weed whacking, ditch digger son, is it a heavy burden for your psychic to bear? It does explain your constant need to tell everyone how intelligent you are! WHO YOUR DADDY SEB?

              2. GEEP, now you are trolling.
                .
                Try to understand, I have spoken the truth. You are the one not believing the truth, and even if I prove it, you will not accept it.
                .
                Then, you turtle, and will not tell me your educational background. So be it. I will just have to assume you do not even have a GED, and your screeds and snark are byproducts of your jealousy of me. A real man would stand up and deliver. You demonstrate your lack of intelligence, every post.

              3. What dis? Its a fact.

                A coder…such a generic title. “Coder”.

                What projects has he worked on previously?

                Whats his badge color?

                What cafeteria is his favorite and what do they stock in his MK?

              4. All I know, is he is not allowed to take work home with him, so he cannot work at home.
                .
                I do not know what he is working on. He is pretty closed mouth on what his job entails.
                .
                I do not know what color badge he has, but he does like the cafeteria. Did not know there were different ones.

            1. My son enrolled in Cal, due to his service work. I think that made the difference, because he sure didn’t get any bonus consideration being half Asian.
              .
              Yes, his GPA was due to his advanced studies courses.

                WHO’S YOUR DADDY SEB?

              2. No, GEEP, posters are trying to say that I lack intelligence, so I proved my bona fides. If you can claim any academic achievement, to prove you are smarter than me, go ahead.
                .
                Grant graduated out of UCLA, and his writing is a byproduct of his education.
                .
                You, on the other hand, sound like your 8th grade education has been a waste.

              3. Seb, I respect that you are doing work Americans don’t want to do. And that your son has more opportunity than you have made for yourself. Your family is the embodiment of the American Dream! At least your father and your son are, something went amiss with the generation in between.

    1. Well, if his background highlights music is an indication of his character, that would be a red flag for me.
      I’ve never been a fan of any type of music/lyrics that devalue women.
      But that’s just me.

      1. Appears Thompson’s availability is generating a growing amount of media and fan buzz. Health seems to be solid–played in 39 games across three seasons.

  15. I guess I like the 6th o-lineman idea. I’m not sure the Saints using this formation 17 times is a huge percentage of their plays inside the 12 yard line. So not sure what to take from that stat. Given Shanny’s love of flexibility, I think it’s more likely they use TE’s or Hurd as an extra blocker rather than bring in Garnett. The number of variations and eligible receivers a defense has to account for when you use TE’s or Hurd could potentially make the running game more effective even if you are pulling a guard as a lead blocker.

  16. How to improve the Red Zone scoring?
    .
    1. Have set plays prepared ahead of time, so JG can execute them in sequence quickly. This may prevent the defense from substituting, and the RBs and TEs can pose advantageous matchups, targeting a LB or Safety.
    .
    2. They should have a third and short play, a third and long play, and a 4th and one play, designated and practiced many times beforehand. It should be variable, but prepared for so well, it becomes almost instinctual.
    .
    3. They should not run into the teeth of the defense, but try to take advantage of the weakest point.
    .
    4. The Niners need to be deceptive, and set up plays with previous plays. Running through undefended space is the easiest way to score.
    .
    5. The O line should experiment with different lineups during the game to see which one works the best. They should develop a jumbo package, and a fast quick, smaller lineup for pass plays. Employ 2 TE sets, to attack either the strong, or weak side.
    .
    6. They need to establish a running game. Tevin Coleman is the key. Breida, if allowed to be the second back, will stay healthier, hopefully.
    .
    7. They need to move the ball around, behind the line of scrimmage, so the defense has to defend from side line to side line. I hope they perfect the swing pass to the fullback, that Roger Craig and Tom Rathman used so effectively.
    .
    8. When on the 20 yard line, and/or confronted with a third and long, take a shot at a TD. There is more room to operate.
    .
    9. The best way to win a game, is to impose your will on the opposition. Make the offense unstoppable, especially within the Red Zone. Scoring early will put more pressure on the other side. Easier said than done.
    .
    10. I know, I know, posters have seen this a number of times. DO NOT SETTLE FOR FIELD GOALS. Go for it.

    1. As for home remedies, duct tape applied to the wart and left on for a week has shown mixed results in some studies. Still, it is a low-risk treatment that may be worth trying. If these standard treatments do not work, consult with a dermatologist or podiatrist to review other options. For example, injection of the chemotherapy drug bleomycin (Blenoxane) or topical use of 5-fluorouracil (Carac, Efudex) can be effective. Laser therapy also has been used with some success. In some cases, minor surgery to remove the warts may be necessary.

    what the heck dude!!!!!!! if this weren’t a cheap blog depending on hits…….youd have a restraining order against you!!!!!!!!! you should have one anyway now that I think about it! your obsession here is sick and unhealthy!!!!!

    1. Thanks for admitting I am dominating your thoughts.
      .
      Maybe you did not know this, but I just consider it polite to respond when addressed. I am not obsessing about intelligence, like others are doing.
      .
      If you carefully look at who I post on, I refrain from engaging many posters. Yes, I do respond to the usual suspects, but they should know better. Posters like AES have thoughtful and interesting posts, and I like his civil dialogue. Razor and I would love to twist up a fat one and sample each other’s mixed strains. I recognize AFFP, Houston, Scooter and even Jack’s football acumen, and try to respectfully disagree. However, I have also agreed with their posts many times, so I do not exist to stir the pot.
      .
      I like Grant’s writing, but have not been afraid to disagree with him. Sure, he likes the clicks, but he has graciously allowed me to post here, and I like to write.
      .
      Get real. This is a blog site, and there are a million of them. It is so easy to post all sorts of stuff on a myriad of sites. You do not own this one, so who are you to declare who can post or not? I am just a die hard faithful Niner fan. I like the Niners. I have for years. Why don’t you go to Niners Nation? They are another Niner site, and they love the Homers. This site has the realists, the pessimists, fatalists, and even some trolls who want the Niners to lose every game. This site also has the critics, who are tired of the sweet saccharine, rainbows and unicorns, rosy scenarios presented, with 4-12 seasons resulting.
      .
      I will put this kindly. Venting is fine, but this is the off season, and not much is happening. Going ballistic over a blog does not impress me. You really should not sweat the small stuff. If you go on other blog sites, it is mainly spam. At least I am original, and present things that have not been posted before. I like to think outside the box.
      .
      Yes, I do not post to be popular. Many obdurately oppose me. I post because i want the Niners to win, and I think they need to improve. Yes, I wish posters would just stick to football, but they cannot help themselves, and hurl invective. This reflects badly on them, not me. Mature people will not go a flutter over a post on a blog. They will use their finger, and scroll past.
      .
      In the end, I just want the Niners to win multiple rings. Hope others do, too. I just think that without better preparations, they will struggle. Why is that so horrible? It is just an opinion.
      .
      So, congratulations, you just wasted time writing a screed. Hope it made you feel better, but it would have been more productive if you had written about the Red Zone run game.

    2. This is the off season, before TC. Try talking about how you would fix their Red Zone woes. Grant detailed how having Garnett as a 6th blocker could be effective.
      .
      I want the Niners to have a play devised that will gain 2 yards guaranteed. They should prepare for it by practicing it over and over, then in the game, they can run up to the line of scrimmage and fire off the play quickly, before the defense is set.
      .
      Maybe you cannot think of something , so you resort to being snarky. I certainly am not stopping you from presenting your ideas, but if you and others seem fixated on my posts, it says a lot more about you, than it does about me.

      1. Sebbie…. If you could grade your level of football moxie, your degree of creative pigskin genius, what would you claim….on a scale of 0-10, where 10 would be the love child of Belichick and Walsh? 6.5, 8, 10+?

            Well, I will go out on a limb and predict Kaep will return because he is being blackballed elsewhere. He will out compete Hoyer for the starting job. Although now that Romo retired, the Texans may pull the trigger on Kaep. Cards may sign him, too.

            In the draft, Niners will trade back to accumulate picks, and select Webb, who will be asked to sit and study hard, while working out to gain muscle and strength. If Webb is gone in the second round, the Niners may select Kayaa in the third round, Peterman in the 4th, Evans in the 5th or Dobbs in the 6th.

            1. Says the poster who was afraid of even producing a mock, being afraid of being ridiculed afterwards.
              .
              Keep digging in those archives…..

            2. Peterman? Tee hee hee. Waddadope.
              Romo retired from the Texans? Waddadope.
              Kap to any place in Texas? Waddadope.

              1. Peterman? Grant even touted him before the draft. Too bad he turned into an interception machine.
                .
                No, the Texans were inquiring about Romo, but he retired from the Cowboys.
                .
                Kaep could have led either of those Texas teams deeper in the playoffs, maybe even to the SB. Too bad they would rather lose without Kaep, than possibly win with him.

            * A typical Seb defense: Ignore the question, then try to change the subject! Make it about the other
            person, because you’re afraid of looking weak when you have nothing intelligent to say…..
            * Is that what your Phi Beta Kappa, Phi Kappa Phi father told you to do, to look smart?
            * In an IQ contest with a head of lettuce Seb, you’d have to cheat to come in 3rd place. Say something stupid to prove my POINT? No Seb, not the one on the top of your head!

      1. Wish PFF would extend their analytical coverage to include team-related blogs where fans are active posters. The overall blog could be rated on fidelity with reality (outcomes), then individual posters (those with over 10 posts per week) could be rated across a spectrum of measurables–overuse of cliches, prediction accuracy, etc., etc .

      2. Jimmy says he already knew he had two of the best bodyguards at OT, and that the onus is on the rest of the offense, particularly himself, to play at or near that level….

  19. Gould has 2 weeks to sign his contract. Wonder why the Bears have not offered a trade for him.
    .
    If he sits out the season, he gets to stay with his family, but he loses millions, and neither team benefits.

    1. One big way the Niners could improve, is to stop shooting themselves in the foot. Many Red Zone opportunities were stymied by false starts or some other unforced error.

      1. Too much reliance on clichés Sebbie….’shooting feet‘, et al. Just say what you mean without going to the cliché bin–it’s like relying on over-processed fast food. Instead of microwaving your posts, be a little more original and too-the-point.

      1. And yours?

        Razor, I think Delilah [Nessa] has hypnotized him. Kaep went from having bible verses tattooed on his body to converting to Islam.

        1. I think that post engendered a response from Kaep, emphatically denying he is converting. I was just repeating something I read on another post, and retracted that speculation, once I heard it from the man himself.

            1. No, he stated to the press that he wants to refute some unsubstantiated rumors, that were totally false. That was just after I made my post about conversion. Cause and effect? I think so, but there may also be the possibility that he just said what he said, just out of the blue.

  20. Dad, stop telling people about how academically inclined me and grandpa are. If you want to show people how smart you are tell them about your own achievements or lack there of. Don’t forget to mention how you mooched off of grandpa and now you mooch off of me. Just sitting and typing up garbage on this blog daily. Give it a rest.

  21. I treat Seb, or any writer with a sense of respect (well I try). And if I don’t feel the need to engage him or anyone else, I just scroll down. I just use my TV concept – If I don’t like the content, I simply turn the channel. It’s really easy 😏

    1. Remember the days of turning knobs to bring that station in just a bit better, and taking care of that annoying horizontal flip?

      1. CFB,
        Yup. I also remember holding the antenna at a certain position so my grandmother could see her Wrestling program.

      1. GEEP,
        I grew up being taught that in order to receive respect you have to give it.
        I’m north of 70 years old and can say that so far that mindset has worked well for me.
        That said, I respect your line of thinking as well.

        1. AES
          Good for you AES. I respect your opinion, but it does raise several questions! * Do you respect those so insecure they’ve lost all self respect, with egos so needy it forces them to brag about their fathers accomplishments trying to prove their own superior intelligence?
          * At what point does your respect become an enabler, allowing a fool to dominate the blog? * At what point are you doing everyone else a disservice, by not forcing a certain individual to look in a mirror and address their childish behavior?
          * BTW: This blog’s not a TV, there is NO other channel. We’re stuck with a burned out old pothead and his incessant screed about Baalke, Paraag, Lunch’s incompetence and Shanahan’s need for an OC…… Fix that and you will EARN MY RESPECT

          1. I made reference that like TV, if I don’t like the content I just turn the channel.
            I believe that also applies to Sebs comments.
            Just scroll down when you see his name.

            I’m not yearning for anyone’s respect on this blog. I’m a blessed and happy man because my immediate family and friends have respect for me as I for them.
            It’s not my job to stop/fix a grown man from posting.

            You’ve been here long enough to know that Seb is going to comment more then anyone on this site. And by now you should know that nothing is going to change that.
            Engage him as much as you want – but those that have been here for a while know he’s not going anywhere.

        2. AES, I hope we can continue to be civil in our postings. I think you bring a voice of reason to this site.
          .
          Sure is nice to see the Giants bats wake up, recently.

          1. Seb,
            I disagree with you more often than not, but I will try to do so respectfully without taking personal shots.

            Nice to see the Giants making a little noise. I hope that the team can send Boche out with a bang!

            1. AES, if you only agreed with me, I would think I needed to step up my game.;p
              .
              Glad we can disagree without being disagreeable.
              .
              Giants swept a series? Be still, my heart!

    2. when I first checked in this morning:
      Of 10 links to comments, 8 were Seb’s nothing burgers, and two were commercial Bots phishing.

      1. Commercial phishing bots…I can see the bots tied up at Phisherman’s Wharf and the Morro Bay Marina. Lovely.

  22. creepy seb with %50 of the post on this blog……I tell the guy hes obsessed and needs to take a break and he comes back with a 1000 word essay!!!!!!!! proving that his obsession is in fact at a very unhealthy level! wow dude! you just love to hear yourself talk…cant get enough huh?

    let me paint a picture for ya……a nice little place to eat in a prime location….with a nice little bar……place is always packed with locals and tourist ……..then this slightly awkward guy shows up one day and spends like 8 hours there…..talking to everyone…..knows everything about everything…..but he seems nice enough…..then he shows up the next day……and the next day…..and the next day………he becomes more annoying each day and his intelligence and knowledge of EVERYTHING no longer becomes appreciated.

    regulars and locals no longer visit this fine establishment…….only tourist……and they don’t stay long…… “mr regular” has chased all the good folks away and has single handedly run the establishment into the ground…..yet he thinks hes gods gift to this establishment…….employees are now creeped out and began to quit…..no longer making good $ there because Mr. creepy has chased everyone away with is awkwardness……. its no longer a fun place to visit…..it has been run into the ground…….ppl wonder why the heck management let it get to this point……but its to late to do anything anyway……most ppl have found a new place to spend time and money……..what was once the best place to eat in town is now a shell of its former self…..and Mr. creepy genius has no clue as to why proving he aint that smart!

    this is you seb! your Mr. creepy and this blog is the once glorious shell of its former self thanks to you!

      1. hey George :)
        I been around here forever……guys like seb make it hard for me to take this blog serious anymore…..ruin it for the rest of us……cant talk football with you guys because seb know all the answers about everything…..theres no debate to be had……just the all knowing all powerful seb informing us little people!

        B4 him it was jack homer……jack must have got a girl friend or something…….sebs far worse than hammer ever was though…..

    1. “creepy seb with %50 of the post on this blog……I tell the guy hes obsessed and needs to take a break and he comes back with a 1000 word essay!!!!!!!!”

      I would take that to mean that he’s
      not interested in anyone’s advice.
      So in reality you spent too much time going down a dead end street.

      1. AES
        * “I would take that to mean that he’s not interested in anyone’s advice.” “So in reality you spent too much time going down a dead end street.”

        * Would you feel the same way if you owned the “nice little place to eat in a prime location….with a nice little bar,” that j described?

    2. Yeah, yeah yeah. People come and people go. This is the off season, and posters are busy. Its a blog, not a popularity contest. ‘Its no longer a fun place to visit’. Was it fun during that 2-14 season? Yup, that 9 game losing streak was a ‘BLAST’. They won 4 games last season, and you think people are jumping on the bandwagon cheering madly for another SB? You are blaming me for the Niners losing. If they were winning, this site would be filled, even during the off season.
      .
      You think I can manipulate people into staying away by chasing them away? Only weak minded individuals allow others to do that to them. I have a higher opinion of the Niner fan than you do.
      .
      There are 50% my posts? Yet, 95% of them are responses. Many engage me, then complain I am dominating? The simple solution would be stop engaging me. Let me blog in peace. I am doing this post in response to your comment. What is creepy is you giving me all this power, then attacking me for it. This place is not run into the ground, the Niners did it with their constant losing. How much fun is a 4-12 team?
      .
      I have never said that I am even close to being a genius. Most of my ideas are just common sense. I get this pushback, but they bring nothing themselves. What I am tired of, is people calling KS a genius, so he cannot have his decisions questioned. TrollD wanted me to take an IQ test, that morphed into him claiming genius status for me, which is the furthest thing from what I consider to be true. I am just a die hard faithful Niner fan, who is sick and tired of the losing.
      .
      Believe me, if the Niners win their first 2 road games to start the season, this site will be hopping. Right now, no news is good news, imho. Recently, a pundit predicted a Niner 3-13 season. Oh Joy.
      .
      Your analogy is flawed. If this were a restaurant, people would be fleeing from the food poisoning a 4-12 team engenders. The patrons have nothing to do with its popularity, except spreading the news.
      .
      As a gesture of good will, I promise to try my damnedest to ignore TrollD and GEEP. I already tend to not post until addressed, and leave certain posters and their conversations, alone. I will try hard to stick to football. Cassie, however, haunts my posts, so I reserve the right to respond to her snark.

        * This is the introspective response of a paranoid, malignant narcissist, oblivious to the fact he’s the “creepy guy” j described. He’s just a “die hard niner fan,” and the victim of abuse, not the overbearing creep driving people away…..OWN IT SEB!

        * A combined list describing the key traits of a narcissistic personality and paranoid personality;
        https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/spycatcher/201805/living-the-paranoid-narcissist
        * How many of these personality traits do you find exhibited by the CREEPY GUY?

        1. GEEP, I want to ignore you, but this deserves a response. You are the creepy guy, and your posts are what are driving posters away.
          .
          Yes, some posters are sick and tired of all the back and forths, but if you cannot see that you are part of the problem, I feel sorry for you.
          .
          I try to be civil, and do not start trolling, like you, TrollD and Cassie do all the time. I do not engage posters like Scooter and CFC, because they have learned their lesson. The do not try to needle me, so I leave them alone.
          .
          Stop engaging me, and I will stop posting so much. It is a 2 way street. Engaging me, then whining about it, displays some of the personality disorders you decry. Look at all your posts. Every one of them is a screed against me. You bring nothing to this site. You think being an obnoxious bully is what will attract posters? Think again.
          .
          If you do not like what I say, just scroll past. That is the easiest thing to do. Getting bent out of shape over a post just shows how mentally weak you are.
          .
          I will state this again. Once the Niners start to win, more posters will comment. Right now, it is the lull time, and not much is happening.
          .
          However, if they continue to lose, few people will want to post. Only the die hard faithful fans will be on this site. I just want to suggest ways that will help them start winning consistently.
          .
          Hopefully this will be the last post I address to you.

            * “GEEP, I want to ignore you.” Then just do it Seb and stop whining!
            * “But this deserves a response.” No Seb it does NOT. But your insecure, narcissistic ego won’t let you.
            * ” You are the creepy guy, and your posts are what are driving posters away.” Is that’s what j wrote
            about me, or was that you Seb? Shall we ask him? In fact, why don’t we ask everyone on the blog
            WHO’S THE CREEPY GUY? Time to put up, or shut up Seb!
            * “Yes, some posters are sick and tired of all the back and forths.” No Seb, the majority, if not all of the
            posters, are sick and tired of your incessant screed and your constant anal diatribe. But as we all
            know, your insecure ego is incapable of looking at yourself in the mirror. Instead you try to play the
            victim and bloviate about your superior intelligence,, how your father was a Phi Beta Kappa, Phi
            Kappa Phi. That somehow, that proves your intelligence.
            * “I try to be civil, and do not start trolling, like you, TrollD and Cassie do all the time. I do not engage
            posters like Scooter and CFC, because they have learned their lesson.”
            Ahh yes Seb, the delusional diatribe of a narcissistic, paranoid personality and the inability to
            address one’s own failings! Can’t accept the fact you’ve failed to live up to the expectations of your
            father. That you have defeated TrollD, Cassie, Scooter and CFC, because you’re smart like your
            father (who’s likely disowned you for being a brain dead old stoner)? Is that not your real issue Seb?
            * So Seb, if you’re so smart, WHY do you feel the need to announce to anyone who will listen, about
            Your father’s academic achievements, rather than your own? (How to get stoned, then spend 10-12
            hours a day blogging about how I’m better than everyone else and the smartest old “creepy guy” on
            the blog?
            * Since you claim to have high regards for academics. Read this article by a licensed Psychiatrist, then
            look in a mirror and reflect on how many points are relevant to you and your personality Seb…..

            1. I will be brief. I did not Willy Nilly announce how smart I am. I merely defended myself against your screed accusing me of have less intelligence than a head of lettuce.
              .
              Yes, you should look in a mirror, and get a clue.

                * You’re right Seb, you did not announce it “willy Nilly,” You announced it, believing it made you look intelligent…Like your father! But rather than making you look intelligent, it made you look insecure, needy and uncomfortable in your own skin.
                * “Yes, you should look in a mirror, and get a clue.” I look in the mirror every day Seb! But unlike you, I’m comfortable in my own skin….l like what I see in the mirror and don’t feel the need to brag about myself, my father, or family members! You should try it Seb! You may even begin to like yourself? But then again, you’re likely too insecure and paranoid, to accept who you really are….Just an old weed wacking stoner,and ditch digger, who’s father rejected him because in his eyes, you are a loser……OWN IT SEB…..You know it’s true!
                * BTW; I’m still waiting for your explanation of how you run the business you claim to own, but somehow still find the time to spend 10-12 hours P/D posing your anal diatribe about your superior intelligence, how you know more than the 9er GM, HC and FO! How they’d be successful, if only they listened to you, the “CREEPY GUY.”
                WHO’S YOUR DADDY SEB?

                I really do not need you to stop turtling, because you demonstrate your lack of intelligence, every post. Until you say otherwise, I will put you down in a Pre-GED phase.
                .
                Believe it or not, I have worked hard all my life, and can afford to work when I feel like it. I am semi retired, and just turned down a job, because she wanted a specialty garden, but did not want to pay my bid. I am booked 2 months in advance, and am debating whether to take a flagstone patio job, because it may conflict with another job, and they do not want to wait.
                .
                JL, KS and PM are above reproach? JL the architect of the Foster fiasco? KS, who stood on a desk and demanded they trade up to select Joe Williams? Paraag, the serial leaker? Yes, they should have taken my advice, and avoided the red flagged players. Instead, they doubled down and selected Hurd, who may disappear if they force him to play FB or TE. No OC? When they went 4-12? KS needs all the help he can get.
                .
                I just wish they would give a damn.

      2. seb, your delusional……%95 of your post are when you respond to ppl huh…..? you realize ppl don’t like you and they are talking crap to you??? there not looking for a response, there not asking you questions bro! there talking shi to you….hoping you’d get the hint like a normal person and take a long hike off a short cliff……hoping you’ll scram…..beat it….get lost……go play on the freeway……get a life…………for someone as smart as you…….a lot sure does go right over your head bud!

        2. j, you act like a noob. This aint my first rodeo.
          .
          You are impotent to dictate who posts on this site. You can write screeds, but where is your content?
          .
          Dazzle me with your brilliance, if you can conjure up a cogent thought.
          .
          Nowhere have I written that a poster cannot have an opinion. I may respectfully disagree, but I am countering his argument, not censoring it. Many times, I have also agreed with a post.
          .
          The intolerance to different points of views is what is wrong with America. People need to chill, and be kinder. You ascribe my posts to be diatribes, with no dissent allowed. That is the furthest thing from the truth.
          .
          So you think by talking crap to me, I will run away and hide? Get real. I countered your screed with 1000 words. The best way to stop me from posting 1000 word replies, is not attack. Right now, I am responding to another attack. Be civil and stop the screeds, and we can all get along better.
          .
          I am perfectly willing to read what you write about how to improve the Red Zone Offense. You just want to be an obnoxious bully, who wants to shout down my posts. According to blog etiquette, your account should be deleted, for anti social behavior.
          .
          I will say this a thousand times. Do not engage me, and scroll past. Let me blog in peace. It really is that simple. Now, I may disagree with your posts, if you stick to football, but I feel like I have every right to defend myself against your mindless screeds. If you actually write something that is sharp, clever or shrewd, I will give you kudos. However, looking at your previous posts, you tend to go ballistic over a comment on a site, which clearly demonstrates a lack of mental rigor and discipline.
          .
          This team was 4-12. Do not act like they are 12-4. I will be wildly ecstatic if they win more than 8 games, but you are the delusional one to think all their problems are solved and they are destined for the playoffs. Maybe that makes you a Homer. I think it is more like a Pollyanna predisposition.
          .
          I am just a die hard faithful fan, who has sipped the Koolaide, but now have become a little jaded from all the losing. I am hoping for the best, but expect less.
          .
          You, on the other hand, would just rather attack 49er fans, because your life sucks so much. it makes you feel superior.

  23. Hey Grant…. Time for a new topic. How about a thorough run-down of the Robbie G situation–risks and possible outcomes? Any thoughts on the supplemental draft? What do you think of Toy Story 4?

    2. Gronk looks like he lost 20 lbs.
    3. Midway movie trailer looks cool.
    4. NJ has overtaken NV in sports book gambling. CA casinos need to get in on this.
    5. Mrs. Putin has decided to play army and surround himself with tanks.

    1. Midway movie trailer looks cool.

      There’s a new one? Awesome! Hopefully better than that awful 70s version (hopefully Niners better than that awful 70s version too). Remember those good old days when the USA fought fascism?

      5. Mrs. Putin has decided to play army and surround himself with tanks.

      And brand new Sherman tanks too!

              1. An inauguration is stuff. The only difference is President Trump is doing it. You really shouldn’t wear those political lenses 24/7. You’re apt to go blind….

              2. Will there be any Patriot batteries? They might come in handy in taking down the Trump baby blimp. Lol.

              3. Politics will be so boring without Trump.

                President Obama was a different president to be sure. He preferred staring at North Korea in his bomber jacket through his binoculars rather than venture across the DMZ or even meet with the dictator. Different styles I guess, although I’d wager one has a bigger athletic cup…. 😉

        1. Raz, as a Marine are you pissed that another branch gets its own day? 😏 If so, USMC makes up for it by having the much superior hymn.

        1. Humorous yes, dictator? Not so much. Last I checked dictators don’t have term limits. Not conducive to their dictatorship. Times have changed I guess. It wasn’t long ago President Obama was praised for meeting that Cuban dictator for some photos. I’ll assume you’ll be voting out President Trump in 2020 with a vote for Joe, Warren, Harris, Sanders, Buttigieg, Booker, Castro, etc. Good luck!

          1. after America has been made GREAT again and I leave the beautiful White House (do you think the people would demand that I stay longer? )

            Hey Raz, are you one of those people trump says will demand that America give term limits the old heave ho? I’m assuming he’s talking about his base (you).

            1. 1st rule of USMC, never assume anything. I seem to remember the same conspiracy theories perpetuated by the extreme right as President Obama’s 2nd term came to an end. I’d be more concerned about finding a democrat that can beat him if I were you….

              1. Find me examples of Obama himself floating that particular flouting of the Constitution.

                From the polls I’m finding about half a dozen of the D candidates kicking tRump.

              2. Would you like to make a way too early friendly wager? Kinda like the one where you said Bosa wouldn’t get drafted in the top 10? I’ll take the champion, Donald James Trump vs. any contender you deem worthy enough to defeat him….

              3. So there is some Trump constitution trampling even you are not willing to go with. That is a relief.

                A wager? Can do. A MAGA hat as my avatar from Election Day to Inauguration Day. A smiling photo of the Democratic President elect as yours. Deal?

            2. Ribs……

              Your fixation on Trump and all things political is going to ruin your personality.
              I’m not being sarcastic or a smart arse-I’m saying this to you as one humanoid to another………………

              The political sewage will destroy you, make you sower……………….
              Stop cursing the darkness–light a candle instead.

              1. Don’t worry Cat. When he’s out of office and in prison, his family name stripped off every gaudy building (we’re well on our way there here in NYC) I’ll never think of that POS again.

          2. Razor, Obama meeting with a senile, retiring Castro who has made explicit overtures toward democratic reforms is the furthest cry from Saudis, NK and Russia. They literally kill political dissidents . Furthermore, Obama did not have a financial stake in Cuba whereas Mrs Putin has covert and overt business dealings with the aforementioned regimes.

            Mrs Putin won with paper thin margins in key states FL, MI, WI, PA) under high unusual circumstances and outside interference. I dont believe he will be able to duplicate such a scenario.

            1. I know plenty of Cubans who would beg to differ with your characterization of Castro, not to mention all the revisionist’s out there that want stricken our founding fathers, anthem, flag, etc., from every book and tablet, and from every pylon and obelisk in America for their past sins. I’m not so sure the world is ready to forgive poor, old, senile, retired, and quite dead dictator, Castro until a democrat becomes president….

              1. “I know plenty of Cubans ”
                Really ?

                “the revisionist’s out there that want stricken our founding fathers, anthem, flag, etc., from every book and tablet ”

                Nope. Strawman alert. No one is calling for the removal Washington , Jefferson, US flag and anthem from anything.
                Not idolizing confederate traitors is another matter.

              2. Really ?

                For reals.

                Nope. Strawman alert.

                Yet you believe President Trump is a dictator.🤦‍♂️

              3. When it comes to current politics I cant help remembering what Ronald Reagan used to say: “I didn’t leave the Democrat Party, the Democrat party left me”. For us old timers I don’t know a better way to say it because it’s the absolute truth to most people I know.

              4. It is a process. The older one gets, the more conservative one gets.
                .
                Many young people are idealists, but many older people want to keep the status quo, and yearn for those good ol’ days.
                .
                Heck, the stable genius used to be a Pro Choice Democrat.

    1. Grant’s preoccupied with truly more important stuff than this donut hole in the season. He’s leaving us to our Lord Of The Flies moments.
      PS
      Hard to believe Sebtzue isn’t going to DC to rejoice in seeing M1A1 tanks out of their pits. Having them on The Mall so cozily evokes memories of the T-72s in Tienamin Square.

      1. Running Abrams tanks on the DC streets will just tear them up. They weigh over 60 tons.
        .
        More expense to satisfy some one’s vanity, and using the military as political props is about as smart as putting them in a pit.

  25. Grant wants KS to learn from Sean Payton, in order to improve the Red Zone Offense.
    .
    KS should also study Pete Carroll, since his team led the league in rushing.
    .
    He should also copy what Sean McVay has been doing, because he made it to the SB with a high powered offense that scored a lot in the Red Zone.
    .
    Then, he can dissect their offenses, so he can scheme to stop them. Going Wide 9 against the Seahawks will be counter productive, since they will just run the ball up the middle. I hope KS studies the Patriots, to see how Belichick stymied the Ram offense.
    .
    I am hoping that the new WRs will help in the Red Zone scoring, but I think the key will be Tevin Coleman. If he can present a running threat, that will make the passing game more effective.

    1. Sebs-

      You conveniently forgot to point out that Carroll teams are generally clueless as to stopping a KS offense.
      Hohoooooooooo!!!!!! You better hope the 9ers suck next yr or Tom, Cassie and I are going to blast you on an hourly basis.
      Why??? Cuz your a RAAYYDUUHHH fan, clearly!

      Blasting some of their rookies…………..lamenting about past imperfections…………….holding grudges like an elephant………….can’t see any difference in players or coach’s from 2 yrs ago………………….did I mention holding on to and nursing past grudges? Yes, I already mentioned that………………
      U better hope they are bad, or you are gonna get it.

      1. Saw. I am hoping they double their win total from last season. Why do you think I want them to lose?
        .
        I am past Kaep, you are the one holding a grudge.
        .
        You want me to toady up to the coaches? After they went 4-12? No, they should be grateful, they have long term contracts. KS even admitted, he should have won 3 more games.
        .
        Saw, calling me a Raider fan is ALMOST as insulting as calling me a Nazi.
        .
        I am not hoping they are bad. I am hoping they will improve.
        .
        Blast me? The TC has not started, and you all are doing that anyways.

  26. Geep, thanks for the Narcissist Checklist article ! I’ve taken the liberty to post a list of their traits for others to puruse and possibly post any similarities to Seb’s disorder.

    3. “Often talks about the need to lead, to be in charge”—(see Seb’s description of Kaep).
    4. “Requires and seeks excessive admiration from others”–(see Seb’s numerous mock drafts and his view that 49er management and other front offices, act on his ideas).
    6. “Is interpersonally exploitive of others for personal gain”–(see Seb’s diminishing of others, esp. the new posters, who have a different opinion than Seb, but Seb takes it personally, then goes into a tirade).
    7. “Is arrogant or haughty in behavior or attitute”–(See Seb boast about his father’s and son’s accomplishments then claim their achievements as his own through a weird I.Q. parallel).
    12. “Hypersensitivity to how he’s seen or perceived by others”–(see #6).
    22. “Angry reactions to minor slights”–(see #6).
    24. “Is very thin-skinned and any criticism is considered a personal attack”–(see #6).
    26. “Has a need to over inflate personal accomplishments, deeds, or experiences”–(see #’s 6, 7 and the time Seb “lit some white phosphorus off for some elementary students at the playground for the 4th of July”–a military ordinance….(Seb over-inflated his personal accomplishment for self-aggrandizement–#26).
    75. “For him, propaganda and deception are more important than truth” (see any of Seb’s debates–Prime and Geep have noted this continually).
    77. “Relishes having an enemy to blame when things go wrong”–(See I.Q. debate just above is called out on his father’s accomplishments as his own by Geep and eMJAY, then blames TrollD for the backlash.)
    80. “Truth and facts are whatever he spews out at the moment, without regard for facts, reality, truth, or actuality. Mendacity is not an occasional occurrence, but a way of life” (see #75).

    I’ve listed my top q10 or 11. Maybe other posters who have engaged Seb can find some off the list below.
    https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/spycatcher/201805/living-the-paranoid-narcissist

  27. I hear that Metallica’s former shrink is looking for work. Maybe the PD has some budget for a forum shrink.

    1. I submit to you, just look at my 10:50 post, then look at the 11:11 post, and decide which brings better content to this site. I mentioned how to improve the Red Zone Offense, and identify a possible key player. The other is another screed that actually defines himself, not me.
      .
      New shrink? Rib will be ecstatic!

    2. Idk Cap’n. There is a great resistance among those here who are most in need of it. Besides, this is much too big for a group session! And… he’d spend 30 seconds with Seb before declaring this one’s beyond help.

      1. He would call you a fascinating case, while mentally rubbing his hands together, thinking of all the years of billable hours from you.
        .
        They call them Shrinks, because they also shrink your wallet.
        .
        Yes they are good listeners, and say their mumbo jungo jargon but he would run away from me, because I would ask why does he suffer fools gladly, if not for the money?
        .
        Listening to some one’s problems all day would drive me crazy, which is why so many shrinks have shrinks.

        1. Seb:
          * “They call them Shrinks, because they also shrink your wallet.”
          * “Yes they are good listeners, and say their mumbo jungo jargon but he would run away from me, because I would ask why does he suffer fools gladly, if not for the money?”

          * LOL: The CREEPY GUY find a new villain to skewer, a new windmill to tilt at! Shrinks scare the he((
          out of Seb! They try to get inside his head and expose all his paranoid insecurities, all his narcissistic delusions and fallacious claims of intellectual superiority…..They are to be scorned, demeaned, and disparaged post haste, least they expose him to the world……
          * JUST IGNORE ME SEB. You know you can do it! Who’s your daddy?
          .

        2. Listening to some one’s problems all day would drive me crazy, which is why so many shrinks have shrinks.

          Another of the endless examples of you not knowing the f you are talking about. Therapists must go through therapy as part of their certification.

          1. Donald, shrinks see shrinks. it is a fact of life. They have them after certification.
            .
            Sounds like you are an expert on the subject. Must mean you needed a lot of help.

            1. There are people who don’t need to see shrinks who see shrinks. There are people who need to see shrinks who see them. Are you insulting Solomon Thomas? No doubt he made use of them.

              Then there are those who don’t see shrinks who need to see them. Your many pathologies as revealed by your posting history here puts you firmly in that category. Don’t just take my word for it, Mr Normal. It’s obvious to everyone here. Go ahead ask around.

              1. Donald, he has endured a horrific family tragedy. Of course, he needs help. He walked around in a daze. Thankfully time has healed his mental wounds, and I look forward to seeing him play better this upcoming season. Talk about kicking a guy when he is down. Posters who rip him for being a bust, have no class at all.
                .
                I am just posting on a sports blog. Am I enduring nothing more than being insulted ad infinitum? Personally, I think that shows strength of character, to not allow yapping little dogs upset me. A person with a weaker disposition, would allow themselves to be negatively affected by all the hate. I just look at who is doing all the attacking, and realize they are just miserable human beings, who want others to be as miserable as they are.
                .
                TrollD fantasized about breaking into gun safes and creating nightmares, and he is telling me to seek help? He is the one that truly needs help.
                .
                You think it is fun to kick people when they are down, just piling on in a mob frenzy to bully and demean, and you do not think you need help? You exhibit classic narcissistic personality disorder symptoms. You think you are better than me, so that gives you the right to insult and be obnoxious. You are just vainly, and ineffectively trying to cover up your own insecurities. Mentally weak people act like you do.
                .
                I am just a die hard faithful Niner fan, posting comments about a team I love, and you think I need help? Maybe I am impaired from enduring all the years of losing, then seeing the FO, coaches and team repeatedly make the same mistakes, over and over, yet still rooting for them to win multiple more rings.
                .
                Maybe the next time you see your shrink, you can ask him about bullying, and how that shows anti social tendencies, and a severe character flaw. People who bully are just afraid to admit their own insecurities and inferiority. They think by acting superior, it will make them a better person. They think by putting some one down, they will feel better. No, posters on this site look at your behavior, and just shake their head. No wonder people stay away. They see me being pilloried, and realize that if they say something controversial, they will be insulted and demeaned, also.
                .
                I call you Donald, because you act just like him.

              2. I am just posting on a sports blog. Am I enduring nothing more than being insulted ad infinitum?

                There are many posters on this blog. And none (or very very few) are “enduring the insults” as you are. Why is that? Think hard about it.

              3. Blame me for your own faults. I thought Niner fans had class. Obviously, I was mistaken.

              4. Ah, play the victim card again. Blame others, Duck accountability.
                Rib’s point is well taken. So, why then do you meet such resistance? How does that happen?
                “And in the end
                The love you take
                Is equal to
                The love you make”
                (and true to the laws of physics and metaphysics, the inverse is also true)

          1. My problem is with the peanut gallery. Glad you admit you are part of the problem.
            .
            Mainly, the ones with the problems are the Niners.
            .
            Guess you must be sick of them, and their losing ways.

            1. My problem is with the peanut gallery. Glad you admit you are part of the problem.

              Sigh, more oblivious obviousness from our Seb.

              There will always be someone else to blame. The problem is never with the malignant narcissist. Seb, we remember when you directed the blame on your spouse for your RL outing. One wonders at what else that poor woman has to put up with you on a day to day basis (that incident led to your retirement, and much rejoicing, from this blog. There must be something else she can do to make that permanent? Tell her the blog is counting on her). Your banning from NinerNoise. Nope, nothing you did, just the admins itchy trigger fingers. Even the heroes you self-identify with, Kaep for instance. He does no wrong, it’s all Neesa’s fault. But there will always be Seb and your backwater blog postings to reinforce your delusions of personally keeping Kaep to the straight and narrow.

              Don’t expect them to take responsibility. Narcissists take credit and give blame, rarely apologizing or admitting fault. Narcissists think they have special status, greater stature, and more rights than others. They have no interest in equality or in owning up to what they do – other than taking credit.

              From Geeps link upthread

              1. You are a miserable cretin. Do not ever bring up my wife again, you scumbag.
                .
                She is confronted with medical issues, that no family ever wants to hear.
                .
                I would demand an apology, but you are beyond that.
                .
                Maybe I use this blog as an escape, ever think about that?

              2. You are a miserable cretin. Do not ever bring up my wife again, you scumbag

                Take your own GD advice. You mentioned (blaming) her in the first place. We don’t care about your dad, your son, your daughter, you are the one dragging your family into this environment, so how about you leaving them the f out of it? Deal?

      2. Perhaps we could have a week-long group therapy session–a rugged retreat/survival challenge kind of thing. Possible locations: Death Valley, Bridgeport, Alturas… Build trust, forage for food, etc.

        1. Nah, even Tassajara is too spartan for me anymore.
          Esalen;..maybe.
          La Costa;.. too foo-foo.
          NOT going to Dominican Republic!
          Perhaps you could book Bohemian Grove……..?

    1. Geep, I would laugh, however Captain Sensible is onto something I take seriously.

      A poster has a mental problem that is no laughing matter. Thanks to your medical knowledge, Geep, you were able to leave a website Seb, if not to proud (admission is the 1st step in any 12-step program) can take advantage of.

      The Captain has wisely recommended the Press Democrat have an on-site clinician for Seb’s ailments.

      Get Better Sebbie, seek help. (We are with you).

      1. TomD
        Agreed, I also take it seriously and would contribute financially if I actually thought Seb would accept help! I’ve never attempted it myself, but I understand one can set up something thru Paypal? If Captain Sensible is in fact, both Knowledgeable and willing to set up a method to donate, I would be willing to participate if others would be willing contribute to help alleviate his medical expenses. The question then becomes, does Seb have insurance and what can he afford? While Seb assumes that I (and others), are picking on him. I was in fact, attempting elicit an introspect response from him! That is, make him look at himself in the mirror! I would hope Seb seeks the professional help that he desperately requires! However, I seriously doubt he would accept help! Rather he’d view it as an attempt to attack him, to expose his insecurities and narcissistic personality tendencies!

  28. it’s simultaneously amazing and disturbing to see how much “Blog Churn” (registered tm) Grant’s (or maybe Lowell’s??) “Seb” character/chatbot can generate on this site…amongst, say maybe 15 to 20 guys???

    1. Good material for a playwright. Done well, we could have a Broadway hit on our hands–and Tonys to go with it. A timely sports-blog parody, brimming with over-the-top humor and searing human tragedy. All we need is a title. And a cast.

        1. Charlie Sheen played me in Platoon. Just kidding. I was one of the guys who rode on an APC. Got a guy from the union hall I suspect.

      1. Gotta have several blockbuster tunes, like this…

        Sebnynah

        All the beautiful sounds of the world in a single word . . .

        Sebnynah!
        I’ve just read a post by Sebnynah,
        And suddenly the name
        Will never be the same
        To me.

        Sebnynah!
        I’ve just been schooled by Sebnynah,
        And suddenly I’ve found
        How wonderful a sound
        Can be.

        Sebnynah!
        Say it loud and donkeys are braying—
        Say it soft and it’s almost like spaying—
        Sebnynah . . .
        I’ll never stop saying
        Sebnynah!

        Sebnynah!

        1. Even the mynah birds sing…
          Sebnynah!

          OK, so it’s not Rodgers and Hammerstein. But what is these days?

    1. precisely my point, I think…
      Grant needs to post a new topic so we don’t have to rely on his “Seb” character to keep this narrative going…and going….and going…and going….and….

  29. I submit to you, just look at my 10:50 post, then look at the 11:11 post, and decide which brings better content to this site. I mentioned how to improve the Red Zone Offense, and identify a possible key player. The other is another screed that actually defines himself, not me.
