    • We just gotta take 'em one game at a time.
      The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

          Man, I should do press conferences with all these cliches.
          No, you'd sound like John Madden

          • I hate John Madden. I'm so happy that he's retired.

              You should probably stop caring about football. Madden is a legend and he is one of the greatest forces on the game in its history. What has he done to make anyone hate him?

              Who do you guys think will start opposite Nasty Nate? Obviously we brought in a reliable vet in Bly but on the other hand we have Brown in the wings who has looked pretty intriguing... Should be nearly as interesting as the WR battle.

              • people are too hard on madden. The guy was great at his job. He always had the highest rated games: snf mnf, super bowl. these are games with the dumbest audiences and therefore need the most basic analysis. It annoys us when he says things that are BOOM! obvious to us, but some dudes wife might not be so annoyed.

                  You'd be surprised. My wife, who watches very few games with me, always commented his commentary. She would say things like, "Well, duuuhhhhh." or "Even I know that." Then I would be stuck listening to both Madden and my wife. FML

                    "Technically" I think the battle may be too close to call but in reality I think all three will be on the field at the same time alot. I don't have a preference because I want the best players on the field. With that said, it'd be nice to see a young talent such as Tarell Brown to step-up and become a legitimate NFL talent. Clements needs to drastically improve his play this season as well.

                    • I think Bly will start games but share equal playing time with Brown. Spencer is in third, in the #2 Cb battle and I expect him to stay there. We took Brown in the 4th, if I recall correctly, but his talent was late 2nd-early third in value, at worst.

                        I was at the Monday night AZ game when they were robbed by horrible officiating IMO. That game could have easily been a win as well, giving a better head to head record and division record. The Cardinals themselves were a little underrated as well, and showed it when they made a run in the playoffs, earning them some respect.
                        Wasn't that Zona game where Nolan (or was it Martz?) opted for a FG vs. a TD or vice versa, I don't remember exactly. But I do recall the press here crucified him for a bonehead game mgmt. decision that backfired. That + the bogus officiating calls cost the 9ers the game, wasn't it? & wasn't it the final nail in Nolan's coffin? I had come to expect Martz making ignorant game mgmt. calls by then, he's done it everywhere he's been in his career, these steaming piles of mistakes left stinking up the places in a trail behind him.

                        My observation that the 9ers got into holes in almost all their September/October games last season b/c JT O'Sullivan held the ball too long then led the league in fumbles lost. Every d-line they faced next wk. knew it & went after him to strip him -- it worked almost every time & the team started 2-3 TDs down by halftime.

                        It was so chaotic from the front office down that they had to admit Nolan had lost their locker room & hired a rah-rah kind of HC to replace him in Singletary who stabilized them & although didnt turn things around exactly, but at least put the coaching staff on the same page with the offense & the team as a whole. It wasn't an across the board fix, but when the team is bleeding from too many holes they had to fix the biggest hole that they were bleeding to death from, dumping Martzball was that fix. IMO it was road they should never have gone down given Martz' track rcd, hindsight is always 20-20 as they say.

                        l think Bly will end up starting opposite Clements, he may have lost a step by now but has the experience & ball skills that earned him 2 Pro Bowl spots.

                          He was fired after we lost to New York.

                          • The Zona game is where Gore arguably ran in the game winning TD with only a few seconds to go. The play was reviewed and the refs said as soon as they made the call, that if it wasn't a touchdown then the clock would start automatically. The Niners had no time outs and had to call a play during the review, not knowing where the ball would be spotted if it wasn't a TD. Assuming the ball would be within the one yard line, Martz called a FB dive play up the middle using M-Rob. When the refs marked Gore down back BEHIND THE TWO YARD LINE and started the clock, there was no time to change the play and they ran it, with M-Rob getting stuffed just short of the goal line. Martz blamed the refs in the post game press conference.

                            • Nolan hiring Martz (without Scot McCloughan's input) was the pathetic last attempt to save his job. Nolan was a first-class asshole.

                                Don't forget to mention Clark Haggans using both hands in an attempt to decapitate MRob and nearly succeeding.
