2013 SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS vs. MINNESOTA VIKINGS GAMEDAY THREAD (Preseason Game 3)

I guess we just have different opinions on penalties. Anthony Davis has a thousand holding calls for a while, and that got straightened out. PF are even easier to fix because they don't involve fixing actual gameplay.

If other teams took boneheaded PF's this seriously the seahawks wouldn't have a starting D.

In all honesty, his penalties weren't that bad. His inability to line up correctly on a play forcing a TO and taking his helmet off were stupid. The taunting with the ball and the head but were iffy calls. But when there's a multi-receiver battle for the sixth receiver spot (if we keep six) and there are other guys who have been more consistent, it makes no sense to keep him based on potential when we're going to end up cutting that guy when week six rolls around. Like I said, it's a numbers game and to this point he hasn't necessarily shown that he's a better option than Hall or Collie, whom have also looked good.

You're still assuming the 6th guy gets cut, which isn't necessarily true. We could also (God forbid) have an injury.
I think regardless, the 4th game decides who make that slot. If Hawkins returns well again, it's his.
mccoy looked good today.
Does anyone know how Lemonier did? I seen him get off one snap perfectly, I almost thought he was offsides. Refs didn't call it so I take he didn't

It's a numbers game and he negated some great plays with some detrimental decisions. Boldin, Williams, Moore, Baldwin, and Patton are all locks. When Crabs and Manningham come back, at least one of these guys will have to be cut. Unless we keep 7 WRs, I don't see how he makes this team. If he hadn't been an idiot after his plays, I might be inclined to give him a shot, but there was no room for error on his part.


When Mario and Crab are ready to come back, there will be another discussion. No doubt is a numbers game, but in the meantime, he will stay and will give Harbaugh some time to evaluate him in real game situations cos KR talents are hard to find, just that special teams strategic usage will warrant him a spot especially if he can prove he can do it on a consistent basis. In my opinion, it is almost impossible to teach KR, you need to have that vision and lightning decisiveness whereby in most part is instinctual. That is why LMJ can't do it, he is thinking too much and relying too heavily on what Seely has taught him. So, for now, I think the WR corps will look something like this :

  • Boldin
  • Moore
  • Williams
  • Baldwin
  • Patton
  • Hawkins

They just might need to open up that 7th spot. I don't know how important do they see Osgood for kick-off recovery. Other than that, Collie might be too risky due to his concussion history. Hall might have had a chance if Hawkins didn't show he could return kicks, so I don't think it looks good for him. With Jenkins traded and Lockette cut, Jacobs is worth keeping, probably stash him onto the practice squad if they can manage it. I am so glad that Jenkins is no longer here, it really makes things a bit easier and the receiving corps better too.
anyone have a gif of Boobie's impression of Jimmy Supafly Snucka?

He needs a second go-to move. He's quick around the outside but that's all he does. The Viking tackles kept pushing him upfield and thereby limiting his effectiveness. He needs a surprise bullrush like Aldon or a quick inside spin like Von Miller to keep the tackle off balance.

Come on, yes they were stupid, but don't get all hung up by it. Harbaugh knows what he saw in that kick return TD, afterall he also knows he is not dealing with a guy named TO. He will tell Hawkins off big time and that will be the end of it.

He will give him that blue collar work jersey with his name on the tag

LOL. Yea.
why did the vikes leave their starters into the mid way of the 3rd quarter? I said to myself that Allen would get hurt, but it was actually Williams that did. Even though it was a dirty play, i was kinda satisfied that williams got hurt. There's no reason to have your starters out in the third quarter. It's the back up's time to shine...
