2012 49ers Gameday Thread: Week 5: Bills at 49ers
 
Week 5:
Sunday, October 7, 2012

FYI: this is the best “matchup” banner I could find. People on the interwebz need to design these things faster … for me to then steal them.

Buffalo Bills (2-2)
At
San Francisco 49ers (3-1)

Location: The Stick


Time: 1:25 pm pst
Line: SF -10
Announcers (FOX): Kevin Harlan and Solomon Wilcots

Well, I don’t know about you, but 34-0 feels a lot better than 13-24. Reminds me of my high school coach who said, “Winning. It’s better than losing.” 3-1 record was my preseason best case scenario so I’m cool with everything now that the loss has been erased from my short-term memory. Should be 4-0 dammit. Ugh, not completely erased.

So, my first inclination is to look at this:


And then think about this:


Along with this:


And then I felt like this:

The left side of the Bills line better bring it

I know there are so many of us that wanted the Niners to throw deep to Moss, but this isn’t quite what I had in mind:


Triple coverage? Just give me a damn fade to the corner of the endzone.

Speaking of Kaepernick, I absolutely loved getting him some reps. He’s quite a weapon. I hope they keep using him.


So, I was planning on making a Super Mario reference. As in, look, the Bills signed Super Mario. Scarrrrrrrry. And then I remembered the Niners signed Super Mario also. It was at that point that I discovered that any player named Mario is pretty much obligated to be called Super Mario. Those are the rules.

And then I saw this:

**** yeah.

The Niners dropped 245 rushing yards on the Jets. 245. So sexy. Won’t be so easy this week. Bills defensive front consists of this:


And this:


Sigh. And this:


Really? And this?:

You gotta love that front. Could be a great defense in the making. It will be real interesting to see how the Niners’ line handles them. On that note …

Have these guys:


Been better than these guys:

I think I’d say yes. Actually, that’s been a helluva nice surprise

The Bills have 2 pretty darn good backs:

And, as usual, it doesn’t matter. Niners run D is filthy.

So, I kinda, sorta, wanted the Niners to sign this guy:


I know that wasn’t popular, but he was my plan B if the Niners couldn’t land Marques Colston. I wasn’t even worried about this:



Or this:


Or this:

I don’t know what the hell I was thinking. I may or may not be Terry Donahue.

Hey, remember the Niners signed this guy:

Looks like we’re gonna get our first look at him in real action. I’d love to see him and Kaepernick in the same backfield on a short yardage play. Would be hard for the defense to commit too much up the middle. Maybe they can exploit that for a big play.

And finally, I figured I’d get this guy into the gameday thread, because, well, because this might be the only time I can ever get this guy into the gameday thread:


RJF. Played a great game against Mangold. Totally unexpected. Twas awesome. Sopoaga is still nursing an injury so we may see more of RJF.

Thankfully this game is at home. The Bills scare me because goddamn CJ Spiller is explosive.

Borat, remember when you and I had a draft crush on that guy?

abaddon41_80 10-04-2012 06:09 AM

I am surprised at how good the right side of the line has been this year. I still say the left side has been slightly better, though.

Ness 10-04-2012 10:02 AM

Damn. I think I might have to watch this game at 4am because of the time here in China. In any case, I expect the defense to shine. Fitzpatrick and Stevie Johnson could cause trouble though if they're on their mark. I'm not concerned about stopping the run more so than their offensive being able to protect Fitzpatrick who doesn't take that many sacks.

Madirishman 10-04-2012 11:59 AM

Their famous D-Line has talented names but they've started the season very flat. Let's hope that season continues. Spiller is a weapon that will need to be marked at all times. I too was a fan of his during the Draft process. I see the Niners sticking to the run game and feeding passes to the TE's on out and post routes.

dan77733 10-04-2012 07:07 PM

I wanted Spiller too. :(

Oh well, we have Hunter (and some other guy we just drafted, damn, forgot his name since he hasnt been active once yet this year) so im happy. :)

49ers better win this game because our next three will be big games. Cant lose this game whatsoever. Hopefully, we strike early and fast and cruise to a win.

Bills 17
49ers 28

dan77733 10-04-2012 10:57 PM

YES!!! Cardinals lost to the Rams. If we beat the Bills, we'll be in first place since the Cardinals have a division loss and we dont. So happy!!! :)

Ness 10-04-2012 11:19 PM

Please don't give Fitzpatrick all day to throw. Please!

Fitzpatrick is a slighty better version of Sanchez. Even with time, the guy just makes some horrible decisions with the ball and can be way off with his accuracy at times. My barber's from Buffalo and is a big Bills fan and we talk about Fitzpatrick often. If our defense plays sound and do what they're capable of, we should be able to frustrate Fitzpatrick into making some terrible decisions with the ball. Spiller is the X-factor. He is Harvin-like and that scares the crap out of me. Harvin single-handled kept the Vikes in the game, 3rd down after 3rd down. Our defense has no answer for players like that and they will continue to burn us if guys aren't disciplined in their assignments.

dan77733 10-05-2012 10:18 PM

^^^^^ Dont you mean Sproles like???

Totally. It was during our "desperately looking for a 'weapon' not named Gore" phase.

dan77733 10-06-2012 10:38 AM

I was one of the few who also wanted Spiller. Oh well. At least we have Hunter (and James) so im happy. :)

WhatWouldBillyBajemaDo? 10-06-2012 01:07 PM

Love the guy in the Cam Newton jersey flipping off Alex in the last photo. Wonder if he drove all the way out to defend Cam's honor.

Borat 10-07-2012 04:04 PM

Ugh. Fitz is picking our zone apart.

Also, I hated kicking the FG at the 1 yard line. The Niner D is one of the best. It's OK if they stuffed on the 1. Let them make a play with the Bills backed up against the goalline.

farfromforgotten 10-07-2012 04:16 PM

Smith 7-8 180 and a TD. Is this not what you all wanted?

hawkeye123 10-07-2012 04:28 PM

A lot of creative play calls, i'm liking it. Just too many dumb penalties.

Borat 10-07-2012 04:31 PM

Crabtree is beasting (except for that last drop).

Edit: And yes, the penalties HAVE to stop. Can't be doing this.

Borat 10-07-2012 04:49 PM

Alex Smith 12-15 for 237 and 2 TDs in the first half.

Borat 10-07-2012 04:50 PM

All we had to do was get Ness out of the country and boom, Alex is free to dominate.

WhatWouldBillyBajemaDo? 10-07-2012 04:51 PM

Alex sure making up for that low first pitch at last night's Giants game.

Ha. See the lengths I go for this team.


Hey stop talking positive about Alex Smith. We wouldn't want you and Brent to feel embarrassed in front of your other SWDC goons. Stick to the status quo. No Alex Smith discussions allowed.

abaddon41_80 10-07-2012 05:57 PM

18/24, 303, 3 TD, 49 rushing yards

lol Bills

Ness 10-07-2012 06:29 PM

Well, best win of the season thus far. Quarterback didn't get sacked, Alex Smith had his best game, defense was dominant as usual, the running game went buckwild, and the third downs were 7/11 which is 63%.

Can't wait for the Giants next week.

Borat 10-07-2012 07:03 PM

The stats from this game are beyond ridiculous. Bonerific really.
