2012 49ers Gameday Thread: Week 3: 49ers at Vikings
 
Week 3:
Sunday, September 23, 2012


San Francisco 49ers (2-0)
At
Minnesota Vikings (1-1)

Location: The Metrodome


Time: 10:00 am pst
Line: SF -6.5
Announcers (FOX): Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston, Tony Siragusa

I’ll be honest. I didn’t expect this team to be 2-0. I really didn’t think they’d go into Lambeau and win. And if they somehow pulled that off, that they’d avoid the letdown and beat the Lions and their vaunted offense. Really didn’t see it happening.

It happened.

So what now? I took another look at the schedule, and all of a sudden, it really doesn’t look as difficult as I previously viewed it. I mean, when you walk into Lambeau and dominate a team that went 15-1 last year, that will severely change your thoughts on their capabilities. Not that I was worried about this particular game prior to the season, but going to Minnesota hasn’t always been … fun successful.

I remember the last time the 9ers went into Minnesota.

This happened:






Yeah, that didn’t suck or anything. I’m pretty sure Favre could come out of retirement and still find a way to beat SF. **** that guy.

Then, as I tried to remember the previous time the 9ers went to Minnesota, I thought of the highly anticipated T.O. vs. Randy game in 2003 where this happened:

Player/ Rec/ Yards/ TDs
Owens 5 55 0
Moss 8 172 3

This was the game where T.O. officially became dead to me. He didn’t give a crap that the 9ers got smoked that game. All he cared about was that America just witnessed Randy Moss take a gigantic crap all over the Niners and T.O. did nothing. Randy scored TDs, T.O. threw tantrums. That’s pretty much how I remember it all going down … throughout their careers.

This might be the most boring gameday thread of the year. Sorry. There really isn’t much to discuss. The 9ers are better across the board. There is just nothing I must include. I guess we can go with:

The Vikings best player is still this guy:


And yet, he still has to face this

That will definitely make you scratch your head

I guess I should worry about this guy:


But I just don’t seem too worried because of this


I actually don’t hate Christian Ponder … for his quarterbacking abilities. I hate him because he humps this at night:


Yep, this gameday thread still sucks. There is just nothing interesting to write about. So, here are some .gifs. Enjoy the game.

So... yeah...

I remember that game in 2003. It was before the season officially became a disaster. The 49ers and Vikings were going to duke it out in a potential shootout. Instead, the 49ers rolled over and the Vikings take a huge dump on them. I remember from the get-go it was turning out to be a long day. I don't think Culpepper even played in that game. It was Gus Frerotte. I still have the image in my mind of 5'11'' Ahmad Plummer being left on an island to guard Randy Moss on a fade route into the endzone, which of course didn't work out for the 49ers. Man that game sucked ass. After that the 2003 49ers officially went down the tiolet. LOL remember Bill Lafleur kept fumbling the hold on kicks that season? LMAO what a failure of a year.

Good old Dennis Erickson and Terry Donahue. ******* hate those guys.

You know it is hanged and not hung, right fenikz?

dan77733 09-20-2012 01:26 PM

I'm actually looking forward to this game because it could be a trap game and im hoping we come out crushing the Vikings from the start and hope our defense gives up ten points or less because giving up 20.5ppg isnt good and yeah, it should be lower because of missed calls, zone prevent defense but still. I want to see us CRUSH the Vikings. I'm also hoping that Moss is finally unchained. If he has anything left, Harbaugh should let him show it. If he doesnt, then why even have him on the team because eventually, he'll lose interest and thus, become a problem. Hopefully, he has an excellent game that keeps him happy for a few more weeks.

Looking at the schedule, we should hopefully be 5-0 going into the Giants game in SF. I'll be disappointed if we're not. We should definitely get to at least 12 wins, possibly 13 or 14. I dont think that there's any team in the league who can beat us unless we beat ourselves.

As for 2003, I remember that game was horrible and T.O. did nothing but did Garcia play? I know that season was a disaster and back then, I knew the team was going to rebuild after that season and was hoping that we would have finished 4-12 or worse and trade up for Eli Manning. Some may not agree or like it but after starting 1-3, I was hoping the team would just give up and lose as many games as possible. I knew after watching that Browns game when we tried a FB run up the middle on 4th and Goal with Beasley and didnt get it, that we were close to done. Losing that game and the Vikings game just enforced that feeling.

Oh well, that was a LONG time ago and this time, we should crush the Vikings like they did to us nine years ago so it evens out. :)

Garcia did play. He threw three interceptions. He was then replaced by Rattay.

Oh and football players will never mail it in. Why would they? People are fighting for jobs all the time whether it's for their current team or another. Hoping a team will give up is a false hope all together. It never and will never happen.

Cue Ninernation

Borat 09-20-2012 11:47 PM

LOL. Sportscenter just showed all 3 of those TDs to Moss in the 2003 game. He beat Plummer, Bronson and finally Parrish. All from Gus Frerotte :lynched:

Wow. Really....geez...

And I think Frerotte had four touchdowns or something that day. Three of them to Moss.

To be fair, Moss was unstoppable that season. Still, the 49ers should have at least been competitive in that game. Instead they looked unprepared.

No 10101010

By the way the 49ers have lost their last six trips to the Metrodome. The last time they won there was in December of 1990.

Frerotte: 16 for 21 for 267 and 4 TDs. Passer rating of 157.2 (nearly perfect). Minnesota scored on 4 of their 5 first half possessions. Garcia: 11-for-23 for 108 yards. This game was a rape.

Also:

Owens: 5 for 55
Streets: 4 for 81, 1 TD

Game Recap

Quote:

Owens, who criticized the play-calling and pass protection in a postgame rant last week, stormed off the field after Kevan Barlow was stuffed for a 1-yard loss on fourth-and-1 at the Minnesota 31 late in the third.

Owens flung his helmet on the sideline and continued to scream. He was still frustrated afterward in the locker room -- lamenting the Vikings' ability to involve their star receiver, Moss, while his team continued to struggle getting him the ball.

Ness 09-21-2012 01:22 AM

Owens was a jackass. If only he had the mindset of Jerry Rice (who he actually worked with) or an Issac Bruce. He had the potential to be the greatest receiver of all time, but he pissed it all away and now look where he's at. Rice would probably get a job before he did if he decided to come out of retirement.

Yes (10 char)

dan77733 09-21-2012 11:48 AM

To hell with what happened almost a decade ago. What's important is NOW and this team should CRUSH the Vikings without any problems whatsoever.

49ers 38
Vikings 10

abaddon41_80 09-22-2012 06:42 AM

Well that was certainly an interesting debate in the week three thread. I wish some of the users had actually read what I posted instead of just responding, it even seemed like many who did that actually agreed with most of what I was saying. Oh well. On to Minnesota. Let Alex keep up his play from the first two weeks and eventually prove that he can be an elite QB.

P.S. I didn't know Shaun Hill was so hated around here. I mean, the guy isn't great and isn't going to win you many games by himself but he isn't going to lose you any as well. There are at least 10 teams who would rather have someone like that over what they have now.

Ness 09-23-2012 03:24 PM

Well that game sucked. 49ers just can't win in Minnesota.

Anyways, some hilarious comments on the main board:

Quote:

team needs:
1.qb
2.left tackle
3.pass rush specialist
4.cornerback
5.pass rush specialist
6. cornerback
7.head coach
Quote:

Alex Smith is a joke. **** him. **** him so hard.

Elite? ELITE?!?! Are you serious?! Finally, he has been exposed
Quote:

ELITE MY A**.. Elite Qb's make plays down field. 5 yard passes all **** day. lmao
Quote:

Well, I had no idea how long it could last... apparently not as long as we wished.
Quote:

Wow. How dare you compare Alex Smith to Steve Young. Alex is not 1/10th the QB that Young was

Borat 09-23-2012 03:40 PM

Dammit Ness. This is a .com free zone. Let's keep it that way. :)
