Is ESPN just not going to do a Power Rankings today?
 
2012-12-24 11:53:16 AM
Pete Carrol vs. Harbaugh is like, a shiat sandwich vs a douche margarita, but.....on the whole I like seeing Harbaugh butthurt. something about him just annoys. like the old cliche of liking to see bad people fail? i don't think he's a bad guy, but....there's just something about him that bugs teh crap out of me.


Maybe his boy Frederick P. Soft has been in his ear.

YA THINK HARBAUGHZ?!

It's okay, we'll beat the cards to clinch the division, and the hawks will loose in the first round of the playoffs anyways, or as soon as they are on a road game.

Just think 49ers, one of your losses and your one tie could have been avoided by starting Alex Smith. I don't know if last nights debacle could have been avoided, but it shouldn't have mattered

I was the same way...but now having dealth with Pete Carroll for 3 years, I have to ask myself, "Why did I hate Carroll?" Was it because he ditched USC when they were drowning? Was it him thumping the Huskies every year?

The more and more I think about it, the man is doing no wrong. Even the Russell Wilson situation in regard to him being the starter is now obviously looking into a genius move. That man has the benefit of the doubt no matter what he does.

Yeah, sorry...I hate the 49ers but even I'll say (and it's been repeated ad nauseum) that there is no way in hell Alex Smith throws 4 TDs to win at New England (and they've repeatedly shown the graphic that he has in fact, NEVER thrown 4 in a single game). Enjoy your new rookie QB FFS...Alex Smith was nothing more than a game manager, and Colin looks like he's going to be fun to watch for years to come.

Kaepernick vs Wilson for years. Good times ahead.

Do you really think that the 49ers still beat the Patriots if they start Alex Smith?

yeah, it was controversail at the tiem, but that was a huge brass balls hanging low decision.

there's just a kind of smarminess each has. they had it in college (Carroll obviously moreso than Harbaugh) but even Harbaugh got a little insufferable at Stanford. anyways.


i just hope somehow, the Cards can piss in the 49ers champagne sunday. unlikely as shiat as all indications are that Whiz and Graves will be fired at the end of the season and what's more, Brian Freaking Hoyer, who was NOT ON AN NFL ROSTER 2 WEEKS AGO, will start Sunday @ SFO. that is 4 QBs in 16 weeks, folks.

and Skelton wasn't even dressed yesterday. does not bode well for his future here.

I'll be rooting for the Cards but that's a real tall order and the Niners, if they have any pride, should be playing pissed off and looking to make examples.

"I think we could have done better."

A student of Ric Romero? Jesus Teabiscuit Christ, the Niners didn't do anything right last night. Even the interception of Wilson was a fluke tipped ball (granted, it was a bad throw). Not only did they lose in a spectacular fashion, Davis and Manningham got hurt.

I didn't have a dog in the fight, but Wilson is really entertaining to watch. And hot damn is that stadium loud; it's not something I've noticed before, probably because I don't get west coast games often where I live. Before the network's sound guys got a handle on filtering it, the refs were practically impossible to hear and there had already been two timeouts taken and two delay-of-game penalties. Trollhawks indeed.

I had never seen him play before, and I was not really that impressed. I heard he was supposed to be a super-accurate passer, but what I saw was his receivers making circus catches to bail his ass out over and over. Once the threw down field, under-threw the route by a good 10 yards, and the receiver made an amazing catch off his head to bring it in.

Well since there is no Power Rankings thread, this can go here:
i291.photobucket.com
Welcome back, one and all, to the trivia game where the ho-ho-host is bring all the good boys and bad girls something to shove up their stocking.
It's a quiet week here on the Sports Tab, but don't think I forgot your gift of trivia. As always, 3 rounds, 3 questions. 2 Bonuses. So hold on to those fuzzy socks your grandma gave you at early christmas on sunday. shiat is about to get real.

Whose Line Is It, Anyway?
1. 26/43 416 yards, 4 TD
2. 8 Receptions, 153 yards, 2 TDs
3. 22 Rush, 226 yards, 1 TD
*Bonus - only one of these players won. Who was it?

Season's Leadings
1. Putting the game away is something that many teams can't do this year. This player knows about that, though, driving in dagger after dagger on the ground. He leads the NFL in Rushing TDs in the 4th Quarter.

2. A few weeks ago we saw the surprising stat that the most stuffed-RB was Arian Foster. But who is dropped for a loss or no gain the least? I apologize in advance if Gruden sees this and makes this guy his GRUDEN GRINDER and then talks about him for a solid hour next season.

3. In the red zone, real estate comes at a premium. It used to be the domain of the dominant tight end, but this year the leader is a WR. Which WR leads the league in red zone catches?

Name That Team

1. It's time to reward a little fail. This team is the only team in the NFL to miss two extra-points.

2. Which team gets coal in their stocking for forcing the least amount of fumbles, at 6?

3. Which team is the worst at converting on 4th down, at a paltry 20%?

Bonus: Which team is on the naughty list for being penalized for the most yardage?

Not likely if the Seahawks get one of those NFC Least teams in the wild card round. Heck they could win that road game then stun the Falcons in the Divisional round...Not like the Falcons have never blown home field advantage before in recent years.

I can't stand the Seahawks but they are playing well. Very well.

The majority of these post-game press conferences are a complete waste of time. The only real reason to have them is that every now and then a coach just loses it and gives us all a real gem like "Playoffs!?" or "They are who we thought they were! And we let 'em off the hook!" or "You play to win the game..." Otherwise, it just stupid questions that everyone knows the answer too already.

Keep in mind nobody plays as well as they normally do in the rain. The admittedly scant other times I've been able to catch bits of west coast games, he's accurate throwing deep balls and it usually looks (to me) like he's trying to keep the ball out of the reach of the defensive players and trusting his receivers to be awesome.

Also, entertaining to watch doesn't necessarily correlate with actually being good, at least for me. Peyton Manning is good and I can't stand the guy.

Not sure on past years, but I assume they'll stick to their Tuesday schedule.

I thought the only week they didn't have Monday Night Football was week 17?  Is this new?  Christmas Eve seems like a perfect night for football!  A lot of people are staying in, and those that aren't... many are going to bars (I am).  When I was a kid we used to open gifts to each other on Christmas Eve, and then the Santa gifts came on Christmas.

At least they form complete sentences without sounding like a kindergarten teacher. Every Romeo answer is a variation of, "If we score more points, it's a good feeling, and that's what's going to help us win a ballgame."

The only thing that would have made it better for me is if instead of taking a knee the last three plays of the game, Wilson took three consecutive shots at the end zone.

That would have been awesome.

Exactly.  I looked it up... MNF has been played on week 16 the past few years.

Seriously... is Chrismas Eve really the reason?  That seems like a total marketing brainfart.  I don't generally watch too many football games that don't contain teams I follow... but I totally would watch tonight.

Allowing almost 5 yards per carry isn't really anything to do a dance about.
The fact that they only gave it to him 6 times has more to do with how far behind they were, not that he wasn't producing when given the ball.

less you forget we should have beat SF in SF if our receivers had actually caught one TD pass that was dropped in the end Zone.

Every Seattle loss this year has been 7 points or less, that says that in the playoffs we have been in some dog fights. The Green Bay game was complete BS, we should have lost that game.

Every other game this season we have been in a position to win. I'm not saying Super Bowl yet, but this team is peaking at the right time!
