What??! Brian McCann doesn’t eat vegetables!
McFann O O o
October 16th, 20114:22 pm
Dang! What’d I ever do to you?
Here’s the game…
October 16th, 20114:25 pm
COME ON D!!! 1:51 to go…..
If they overturn this…
October 16th, 20114:26 pm
October 16th, 20114:27 pm
They can’t, his knee wasn;t down.
I know, but considering how bad they have been today…
October 16th, 20114:28 pm
1:51 and three timeouts. Lots of time for Stafford. Have to get to him and force a TO.
October 16th, 20114:29 pm
A turnover would be acceptable
October 16th, 20114:31 pm
October 16th, 20114:32 pm
On another note, Bowman and Willis have been outstanding in coverage today
October 16th, 20114:33 pm
jeffrey d Brian McCann doesn’t eat vegetables!
………Oh yeah?? I once read that he even eats asparagus!!…
October 16th, 20114:34 pm
I love asparagus
October 16th, 20114:35 pm
I love Limabeans…
October 16th, 20114:36 pm
And you say “eww” to me????
October 16th, 20114:37 pm
Okay. They need a TD. No timeouts. 1:02. Let’s do this!
October 16th, 20114:38 pm
They do play great music before kickoffs…
Yeah! ‘Cause asparagus is gross…
October 16th, 20114:40 pm
Every Niner should be 20 yards off the line right now…
October 16th, 20114:41 pm
Huge win for my Niners!!!!!!!!!!!
October 16th, 20114:43 pm
October 16th, 20114:44 pm
Great way to head into the bye week
October 16th, 20114:46 pm
I’ve always liked veggies – problem is that I like mashed taters or mac and cheese with them.
October 16th, 20114:48 pm
Yum, I love Lima Beans.
October 16th, 20114:49 pm
McFann – I was just doing my imitation of a thirsty horse.
October 16th, 20114:50 pm
And they face the Browns in San Fran coming off of the bye. Awesome. And it looked like no one got hurt today. Getting Braylon Edwards back in week 8 too.
October 16th, 20114:52 pm

October 16th, 20114:57 pm
Boo-Yah! BAD REX shows up, throws four int’s, ‘SKINS lose, IGGLES win 20-13. I hate having ANY PHILADELPHIA team win, especially when playing the REDSKINS.
SHANAHAN is a top QB, three O-linemen, two ILB’s, a CB, and a LDE away from the play-offs.
October 16th, 20115:04 pm
Couple of guys seem to have minor things- Synder had a stinger and Harrison has a hamstring but I suspect both will be fine after the week off. Getting Edwards back will be huge for Alex and for Vernon & Frank…should help them all a lot
October 16th, 20115:09 pm
cab, it’s incredible. I know it’s only 6 games in, but looking at the landscape of the NFC, the Niners look like a legit contender. Great job by Harbaugh. They have a lot of talent, just need to execute.
October 16th, 20115:18 pm
I agree. Not sure if they are ready to challenge Green Bay, but I think they can hang with anyone else in the NFC, especially with that defense.
October 16th, 20115:22 pm
Oh. My boy Parys left the game with a hamstring injury. Hopefully he is okay. Their defense is so good. I think everyone gives their front-7 the applause, but the secondary has been good too – Rogers, Whitner, Goldson, Brown, Culliver. Front 7 has some serious talent – Sopaoga, McDonald, Smith, Jean-Francois, Aldon Smith, Brooks, Harylson, Bowman and Pat Willis. Scary good defense right now.
October 16th, 20115:30 pm
Thanks to the rotation trio of Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, and Cole Hamels, the scout does still see the Phillies as the team to beat in the National League East in 2012, and he does not discount the idea that they can keep their current roll going for quite some time.
“They have great ownership, an aggressive GM, and the nucleus of players who have had success,” the scout said. “The other good thing is that they fill that stadium every night, so they’ll have the revenue stream to get players.
“I would say they are still the favorites right now. Until somebody beats them, how can you say otherwise? The Braves have proven they can’t do it and Washington is not there yet. The Marlins are starting over and the Mets are at least a couple years away.”
The scout said he believes the Nationals will be the next team in the NL East to threaten the Phillies.
“Those guys are getting better and they’re going to spend money this winter,” he said. “They’ll have [Stephen] Strasburg and I think Jayson Werth has to be better. You watch, they’ll make a run for either [Jose] Reyes or [Prince] Fielder in free agency.”
The Phillies are an aging team with some wounded warriors and that’s a major reason to be concerned about which direction their window is headed.
Great starting pitching will always keep the window open. The Phillies, however, clearly need an injection of youth in order to jump through the window and back into the World Series.
October 16th, 20115:32 pm
haven’t allowed a 100 yard rusher since mid 2009..and have not allowed a rushing touchdown this season.
October 16th, 20115:34 pm
As much as I would say the Phillies have a two year window, I have no idea what is going to happen. Reason being because as soon as you think their window has closed, they will have money off of the books and new players via free agency in house. That’s why it’s tough to say the Nationals will be the next team to challenge the Phils. The Braves could be really good in 2013, imo, with payroll flexibility and a slew of pitchers 1-12 not making too much money – which allows them to spend money on offense if the holes need to be filled outside the organization.
October 16th, 20115:37 pm
Justin Smith, Patrick Willis, Issac Sopaoga. All three have been mainstays in the defensive front 7. Plus, they have always valued a strong safety that loves to play the run(Michael Lewis and now Donte Whitner). That helps in run support against long gains.
October 16th, 20116:01 pm
Hey! What happened?
October 16th, 20116:02 pm
Football game is over
October 16th, 20116:04 pm
Damn, the 49ers only have two good teams left on their schedule.
October 16th, 20116:05 pm
I was saying that to VJ the other day I’m not complaining. They’ve had a challenging first 6 games…
October 16th, 20116:06 pm
If any of you follow Indy Car racing, sad news- Dan Wheldon was killed in the race at Vegas today…
October 16th, 20116:07 pm
Ah! That explains it…
For a second I thought DOB posted a new Blog and told everybody but me…
October 16th, 20116:10 pm
Gotta love the NFL’s scheduling. I swear I think they would be happy if every team went 8 and 8 and made the playoffs. Good luck
October 16th, 20116:15 pm
6 games in division, 4 games against conference in different division, 4 against other conference, and 2 based on last season record.
October 16th, 20116:19 pm
Don’t give me all that,I’m pretty sure it is based on whatever ticks me off the most.
I don’t see the Falcons going 9&1 from here.
October 16th, 20116:21 pm
2 vs. Rams, 2 vs. Cards, 1 vs. Seattle, 1 vs. NYG, 1 vs. Redskins, 1 vs. Pitt, 1 vs. Ravens, 1 vs. Cleveland
6 games in the division ……………. that’s like 6 scrimmages
October 16th, 20116:22 pm
That one with the Giants is going to make it interesting in our house…
I’m not about to get overconfident when it comes to the Niners… I have learned that is not wise
October 16th, 20116:25 pm
Live a little, cab
Go ahead and say it 49ers ………………….. 14 and 2
October 16th, 20116:27 pm
I just want them to win the division and we can go from there…
October 16th, 20116:31 pm
Just beat the Rams twice and take down the Browns after the bye. That assures the team of .500.
Goal complete, right? No?
October 16th, 20116:32 pm
Well that should be quite a battle. Have the other teams in the NFC West heard of the forward pass.
October 16th, 20116:36 pm
That’s really sad about that racecar driver…
October 16th, 20116:38 pm
I agree with you on that, McFann, very sad.
October 16th, 20116:40 pm
Crazy how dangerous that stuff is…yikes…
October 16th, 20116:44 pm
Well yeah. McFann.
But excting and fun, too
October 16th, 20116:55 pm
Just a couple more hours until The Walking Dead. Good stuff.
October 16th, 20116:58 pm
I guess it must be—people love it! Not something I could see myself getting into, though…
October 16th, 20116:59 pm
Efrim,did you see 49er’s coach got into a scuffle with Lion’s coach after the game?
RE: Crazy and Dangerous
225 mph on a 1.5 mile track. That’s what, 23 or 24 seconds a lap?
October 16th, 20117:09 pm
Blog is eating my comments. Haven’t had that happen in a while.
October 16th, 20117:10 pm
CB, I saw it. Hopefully he doesn’t let his emotions get the best of him again. I tried to post that like 6 times.
October 16th, 20117:13 pm
It’s funny that Schwartz took such exception to Harbaugh’s enthusiasm, seeing as how he’s been known to do similar things…and scream curse words are opposing players…
225 ………. I don’t see how one could react at that speed.
October 16th, 20117:15 pm
Schwartz has a lot of nerve…
October 16th, 20117:22 pm
So far I am 9 for 10 in my weekly football picks
October 16th, 20117:27 pm
CAB – If you were intending to post an article about the coaches spat after the Lions/Niners game, you got the wrong link. That was something from Oct. 4 about Schwartz and Matthew Stafford.
October 16th, 20117:29 pm
That was what I meant to post. It talks about Schwartz’s sideline antics…and he has the nerve to act like Harbaugh was all out of line with his actions…
October 16th, 20117:31 pm
And now I am 9 of 11 for the day
October 16th, 20117:32 pm
Efrim, that link you posted at 5:30 makes me angry, but it is pretty much true. Braves have proven they cannot overtake the Phillies and I also thik PHI will be the team to beat for another 2 years, at least. Nats are rapidly improving each year. Braves could feel the effects of this collapse for a while, especially the younger players. Unless Wren can get what they call an “impact bat” this winter than I fear more of the same old same old with this offense. Pretty decent through the 1st half only to fade away as usual in the 2nd half. By that time our pitchers, besides Hudson, are spent. Hanson and JJ are serious concerns with their health. Tommy might very well go down as nothing but pure hype when all is said and done. Now injuries are rearing their ugly head.
October 16th, 20117:36 pm
I do think Minor will get better because he did improve just his time with Atlanta this year. Now, Delgado, Teheran and Vizcaino? Who the hell knows. Flip a coin. Delgado did show he can handle the bigs, but there is that thing called adjustments all pro’s must make and he’ll have to. That is the key.
October 16th, 20117:43 pm
C ‘Sweet’ JESUS SUCRE [.250 BA] 0-2, 1 E [fielding].
Old buddy JOSE ASCANIO pitched an inning of releif for the LIONS in this one. You may recall he went to PITTSBURGH for WIL OHMAN and OMAR INFANTE. Dang, what a steal by WREN.
LUIS AVILAN [1-0, 0.00 ERA] 5.2 IP, 3 H, 0 R/ER, 1 BB, 1 SO, 20 BF, GO/AO 12-2, 1 E [throwing].
1B ERNESTO MEJIA [.333 BA] 1-3, 1 2B , 1 BB.
October 16th, 20117:44 pm
McFann, you talking about Jimmie Johnson from last night? Yeah, I could hear him slam into the wall from the other side of the track. Folks were cheering like crazy, too.
October 16th, 20117:45 pm
Oh nevermind, cab was talking about a complete different race.
October 16th, 20117:50 pm
We’ve got to rededicate ourselves to laying waste to our division foes especially the PHILLIES and NATS.
October 16th, 20118:08 pm
Man, that was definitely a fiery auto crash.
October 16th, 20118:13 pm
We’ve got to rededicate ourselves to laying waste to our division foes, especially the SPIDERS and DUKES.
October 16th, 20118:14 pm
Unless Wren can get what they call an “impact bat” this winter than I fear more of the same old same old with this offense.
There is no reason to believe this unless you think Bourn, Uggla, McCann and Prado are officially in their decline years and Heyward and Freeman won’t progress.
The offense will be better. A lot better, imo.
October 16th, 20118:16 pm
Marcum looks like he is hurt or something. Just weird. Another amazing Alex Anthonopolous trade.
October 16th, 20118:18 pm
Efrim There is no reason to believe this unless you think Bourn, Uggla, McCann and Prado are officially in their decline years
NO!! They’re not…
October 16th, 20118:26 pm
Well, looks like it’ll be a St. Louis/Texas World Series. Let’s go Rangers!
I said as the Cardinals were chasing us down that everything was destined for them. Here they are probably about to go to the WS. Like a book.
October 16th, 20118:27 pm
Certainly not Born, Prado, or Uggla. Heap’s getting pretty old. Doesn’t he have a birthday coming up, gonna 28, right?
October 16th, 20118:29 pm
Not a very good book, though Tony L does make a good villain.
He’ll be 28 on February 20th. Yeah, he’s an old codger alright…
October 16th, 20118:30 pm
If the Braves run the same starting 8 they ended the season with out there next year I would still expect them to have a much improved offense.
October 16th, 20118:31 pm
Sounds like a stupid book to me…
Hey, last year seemed like a storybook season for the Braves—Bobby’s final season, BMac giving the NL homefield advantage in the WS for the first time in 13 years…didn’t workout for us, so I’m not really ready to watch it happen for somebody else…
I’m a brat, I know. But I can’t help it…
October 16th, 20118:32 pm
Certainly not Born, Prado, or Uggla. Heap’s getting pretty old
Man, that’s hitting home. McCann’s 11 days younger than me
October 16th, 20118:34 pm
Dude, you must be in a wheelchair, then!
October 16th, 20118:35 pm
But HEY!! Uggla’s 3 years older than BMac, BAT!!…
I mean 4 years…
October 16th, 20118:36 pm
All three of those guys are older than Heap.
Michael Bourn will be 29 in December…
October 16th, 20118:37 pm
WHATEVER!! I knew you were just being facetious, anyway…I just…sometimes forget how old those other guys are…
October 16th, 20118:39 pm
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
