Niner Talk: The 49ers are so bad that...

Nov 3, 2016 at 8:27 PM--


Rightfully so, San Francisco 49ers fans seem to be really down on the franchise right now. The team is off to a 1-6 start. They have allowed a 100-yard rusher in each of their six-straight losses. The defense is on pace to allow 3,000 yards rushing and would be the first team to do that in nearly 40 years. Despite the very public pressure, the general manager wasn't fired during the bye week. The team's semi-brand new home, Levi's Stadium, seems to have more vacant seats than fans during games. The list goes on and on.

The 2016 season has been so bad that it has been difficult to find bright spots outside of the possibility of a high draft pick. Chris Biderman of Niners Wire has tried and tried. So why not have a little fun with the topic and depress yourself even more? Our forum members have started a thread, asking fans to complete the sentence, "We're so bad that..."

For your amusement – and hopefully not to bring you down any further – below are some of the answers from the thread, which can be found in its entirety here.

"We're so bad that I kind of miss Tomsula."

"We are so bad that the University of Michigan is trying to schedule us as one of their early season cupcake warm-up games next year."

"...Trent is scouting an Akron vs Toledo game."

"We're so bad that I miss the Singletary era."

"We're so bad that the most interesting part of our season has been the Kaepernick protest."

"We're so bad I miss having Ken Dorsey as QB"

"I miss Jimmy Raye's offense."

"We're so bad that if the Jags do fire Gus Bradley I hope we hire him to be our next D coordinator."

49ers history: Boos from fans, pep talk from Joe Montana motivated Jerry Rice to be great

By David Bonilla
Jul 10, 2020

Jerry Rice finished his career with 1,549 receptions for 22,895 yards with 197 touchdowns. All are NFL records that will likely stand for a long time. He is the greatest receiver ever to play the game. It is difficult even to contemplate anyone ever trying to debate that. During Rice's rookie season in 1985, however, he looked like anything but a future Hall of Famer who would one day be considered a player with some of the surest hands in the history of the game. Rice discussed overcoming some early NFL adversity during the now two-year-old "Breaking Ground" documentary that first aired during Black History Month in 2018, and was recently

How Kyle Shanahan's Seven-Man Protections Work in the 49ers' Offense

By Bret Rumbeck

The seven-man pass protection in today's NFL seems a little foreign, considering how much the tight end position has evolved over the last 20 years. Today's hybrid tight end, a man built from DNA spliced from a sprinter, basketball player and professional wrestler, has an integral role in the passing attack. A generation ago, San Francisco 49ers tight end Brent Jones finished his career averaging 36.3 receiving yards per game. Flash twenty-five years in the future and tight end George Kittle is averaging 65.4 yards per game over his first three seasons. Head coach Kyle Shanahan's system is firmly rooted in the West Coast Offense, even mimicking some of Bill Walsh's old

Featured 49ers Fan: Podcaster/Writer Levin T. Black Says Garoppolo Critics "Aren't True Journalists...They're Shock Jocks"

By Gilbert Brink

Levin T. Black is an unsung podcast hero. Carefully striking a balance between obsessed analytics nerd and the wise elder statesman at the bar. His insights, humor, and wit are one-third of the very best 49ers podcast out there — the 49ers Webzone "No Huddle Podcast" (available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google PlayMusic). I don't say this because I write for the Webzone myself. Long before I volunteered to write here, I would search for a good 49ers podcasts to listen to. It would take quite some time before I found the No Huddle Podcast. At that time, Levin T. Black was yet to join the crew, but it didn't take long to get hooked by host Zain Naqvi's commentary on the best franchise in sports. When Levin T. Black joined the
