2010 San Francisco 49ers drinking game

Nov 29, 2010 at 9:48 AM4


Sometimes, as a fan, it is tough to find the exact words to express how truly disappointing the San Francisco 49ers have been this season. After all, many "experts" predicted this team to be the favorite to win the NFC West, a division that is clearly one of the worst in football. Luckily, some fans are at least able to find some humor in the situation.

Within our forums, a number of fans have compiled a list of 49ers miscues from the season and have turned them into a drinking game. You know, one of those, "Every time you see this happen, take a shot" kind of deals. Many of the items are pretty amusing and the list does a pretty good job of showing how bad the team has performed over the course of the season.

Below is a good selection of items from the drinking game. Of course, I am just posting this in good humor and because I found it to be an accurate representation of the consistent mistakes this team makes. I fully support responsible drinking and given the list, odds are you would be passed out by the end of the first quarter if you actually tried to play. So please take this list for what it is ... an amusing collection by fans and not encouragement to actually attempt to play this game. Doing so may be very dangerous.

And now the rules of the game.

Take a shot ...

  • Any time Frank Gore runs up the middle on first down.
  • Whenever the 49ers waste a timeout due to poor time management.
  • Whenever the 49ers turn the ball over.
  • Nate Rule: Whenever the 49ers get a turnover and then give it right back on the same play.
  • Whenever the 49ers are held scoreless in a quarter.
  • Whenever the 49ers are held scoreless at the end of a game.
  • Any time Anthony Davis or Chilo Rachal are flagged for a false start, holding or give up a sack.
  • Any time Parys Haralson or Dashon Goldson miss a tackle.
  • Any time the 49ers go three and out.
  • Every time head coach Mike Singletary claps when something bad happens.
  • Every time you can predict the play correctly before it happens.

Post Game Bonus

  • Whenever head coach Mike Singletary says "I have to look at the tape" or something similar.

    All this is true, but we have to remember this is improvement. If not for two field goals in OT we might have had a season without a win. Have we forgotten the Dennis Erickson era or the Mike Nolan regime. Remember when our top receiver was Brandon Llyod? Yes, this sucks, but we consistently hit .500 each season that beats being the cellar all the time. Plus, Alex is on the bench and if that is almost worth burning yet another season. Here's to Gruden in a 9ers cap!

    Nice article David. Even though the games are horrible its importnant to me that niner fans keep a sense of humor. And find the humor in this season, because this truly is a unique and hilarious season. 1) Our coach wears the biggest cross in the NFL. Can we get an extra point for that? 2) "I need to watch the film". Our coach has watched Jesus of Nazerath and Miracle of Marcelino twenty times this week. 3) Our coach repeats himself constantly . . . why do i still not understand what he is saying. 4) Our coach does not know anything about offensive or defensive coordaination. Neither do I, Can I get the job next, Mr. York? 5) Our coach screams the loudest and runs the fastest when he calls a Time Out. He learned that in Coaching 101. 6) Our coach collaspes on the field after every loss from mental exhaustion. 7) Our coach is prepared this week. . . To shoot himself in the face with a squirt gun because he can't take another loss. 8) Our coach wants to thank the Arizona Cardinals for kicking our A$$ tonight! 9) Our coach is leaving the Niners to become a comedian on the Late Show with David Lettermen. 10) God bless you Jesus there is a God.

    haha that is great! You would be completely trashed by Halftime if you actually played this game. This team is so bad it hurts, but props to fans for having the positive point of view to turn this into something fun lol

49ers' Brock Purdy, Nick Bosa weigh in on potential 18-game season

By David Bonilla
May 22

The NFL increased each team's regular-season schedule from 16 games to 17 games in 2020. The league is always looking to maximize revenue. An 18th game is expected in the near future, and there's no indication the NFL will halt expansion at that point. However, there are complications with lengthening the season by another week. The NFL prefers to conclude its season before Presidents Day. Adding a week to the beginning of the season could encroach on Labor Day Weekend, something the commissioner, Roger Goodell, likely wants to avoid. The NFL, a Goliath in sports, can likely do whatever it wants. This is evident in its decision to schedule games on Christmas Day—a Wednesday this year. It's a move that has rightfully



49ers Football is a Game of Inches and What-ifs

By Jon Opelt
May 23

Football is a game of inches and what-ifs. The 49ers Faithful know that all too well. First downs are sometimes made or missed by the nose of a football or a few links in the yard marker chain. Likewise, games are often decided by a tipped pass, the bounce of a ball, or a missed blocking assignment. This truth was on full display in the most recent NFC Championship and the Super Bowl. In the NFC title game, good fortune favored the 49ers, but in the Super Bowl, the breaks went the Chiefs' way, leading to Kansas City's victory. The Lions ran away with a 17-point halftime lead in the NFC Championship. But then, in the most improbable fashion, momentum swung. An overthrown ball ricocheted off the facemask of Lions defender Kindle Vildor and into the



49ers' five most difficult games in 2024

By Marc Adams
May 19

Which 2024 game will be the most difficult for the San Francisco 49ers? There are a few to choose from. The NFL schedule-makers did the 49ers no favors. They will travel more air miles than most teams and have the worst rest disadvantage in the league at -21. That means they have multiple games in which the other team is coming off a bye or a mini-bye. Even when the 49ers seem to have an advantage because they're coming off a mini-bye, their next game is against a team returning from their bye week. The Baltimore Ravens, on the other hand, have the best rest advantage in the league (+16). Last week I highlighted the 49ers' top five non-divisional games. Those are the most important



49ers and WR Brandon Aiyuk reportedly not close on a new contract

By Marc Adams
May 19

The San Francisco 49ers need wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk. And Aiyuk needs the 49ers. But the two sides are reportedly not close on a new deal that would keep the star receiver in San Francisco for years to come. Sunday morning, on SportsCenter, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported that the 49ers and Aiyuk are not close in contract negotiations, leading many to wonder if Aiyuk will hold out (not show up) or hold in (show up but not participate) for the remainder of the offseason and even training camp. "This one's tricky because he was implicated in some trade talks around the draft," Fowler said. "He wants a new contract; has one year left. I'm told the 49ers certainly are open to doing a deal, but talks have not progressed enough where things are close. And
