|Oct-19-14|| ||Jim Bartle: All 49er fans could have warned you about Trestman, Travis. He was roundly hated as offensive coordinator in the 90s.|
|Oct-19-14|| ||whiteshark: Greetings <Phony Benoni>!|
I wonder if the recent F Karger vs E Paehtz, 2014 will make it as worthy no. 100 into the Game Collection: DIRP! ?
|Oct-19-14|| ||whiteshark: <Seize the DIRP!>
("carpe dirpem" as the Romans said)
|Oct-19-14|| ||Jim Bartle: The Bears might not have had too much fight on the field, but it seems they can really mix it up in the locker room.|
I liked this tweet about the fight:
<Fight in Bears' locker room. Jay Cutler reportedly doing serious damage with his purse.>
|Oct-19-14|| ||Phony Benoni: <whiteshark> A Benoni with a DIRP? How can I resist! Thanks.|
|Oct-19-14|| ||Phony Benoni: This may be the play of year so far: a fake punt return!|
|Oct-19-14|| ||Jim Bartle: That is a classic.|
|Oct-19-14|| ||Jim Bartle: Hey, how'd the Lions do?|
|Oct-19-14|| ||Phony Benoni: I'll let you know as soon as I unhook the defibrillator.|
|Oct-20-14|| ||WannaBe: Well, them 4th down and 9ers looked "good" against them Bozos, I mean Broncos. (As a side note, the leading rusher for the 49ers against Denver was Gore, who gained 20 yards, guess once you are behind big, it's throw, throw, throw, throw.)|
One team remain without a win. When will the Traiders win a game this season. Or will they go O-fer? Remaining Schedule:
v KC (Thur)
Cheapest seat at O.co Coliseum, is the Buffalo game, StubHub have tix available for $21, next one is the KC game, $22. Better buy them now, before they keep losing and the tix price drop. (It will probably be more expensive to park than to go into the game)
More interestingly, these 10 teams (League have 32 teams, so... Roughly one-third of the NFL) have not yet had an hundred yard rusher.
OAK, WAS, BUF, ARZ, STL, DET, ATL, NOR, IND, & TEN. Only 4 of them have a winning record, BUF, ARZ, DET & IND.
|Oct-20-14|| ||Phony Benoni: We're talking white-hot intensity here:
|Oct-20-14|| ||WannaBe: That's nothing, on Sept. 28, Eagles visited the 49ers, the local radio station, 107.7 The Bone, which does the radio play by play did not play any Eagles tune the whole day.|
The station is a classic rock station, when not doing 49ers games.
|Oct-20-14|| ||Jim Bartle: Some stations won't play certain Paul McCartney songs when the St. Louis football team comes to town.|
Stations won't play a certain Mel Gibson movie when New England comes to play.
|Oct-20-14|| ||Phony Benoni: Yeah, but has anybody every banned 'The Lion King?"|
|Oct-20-14|| ||WannaBe: No, but they play "Lions Sleep Tonight" by the Tokens on an endless loop... =))|
|Oct-20-14|| ||WannaBe: Houston looks to be shell shocked, 24 points scored by Pittsburgh in less than 3 minutes.|
|Oct-20-14|| ||Phony Benoni: Oh, now that's nothing. Score twice in two minutes, recover a fumble at the five, and break out a wide receiver pass. Cruel, cruel, cruel. Steelers must be trying to regain their mojo.|
|Oct-21-14|| ||Jim Bartle: Saints-Lions has to be one of the greatest chokes/comebacks ever, leaving aside Houston-Buffalo.|
But another one was the 1972 SF-Dallas playoff game. Dallas had beaten the Niners twice in the playoffs (Staubach!) but this time they had an 11-point lead with 2 minutes left.
So...Staubach, onside, Staubach, and bye-bye SF, 30-28.
|Oct-21-14|| ||WannaBe: Okay, when is Yost going to the pen?|
|Oct-21-14|| ||WannaBe: This guy wearing a bright Marlins shirt, right behind home plate... Sure stands out in a sea of blue.|
|Oct-21-14|| ||Phony Benoni: Anticipating, of course, but I got to wondering about teams winning three World Series in five years. Not the Yankees, of course; they've done it a bunch of times. But other teams?|
Just one has done it twice: Athletics in 1910-11-13 and 1972-73-74. Red Sox did it 1915-16-18, and the Cardinals in 1942-44-46. That's it. Not common.
oK, since you don't insist, the Yankees won three in five years:
|Oct-21-14|| ||WannaBe: On that thought, by my count, the Yankees have the most consecutive games won in World Series play. How many consecutive games did they win?|
|Oct-21-14|| ||Phony Benoni: <WannaBe> I covered that earlier. It's 12 straight, sweeps in 1927, 1928 and 1932.|
|Oct-21-14|| ||WannaBe: <Phony Benoni> Nope! =)|
|Oct-22-14|| ||Phony Benoni: <WannaBe> Well, if you're talking consecutive World Series, how about nine by the Yankess (last game in 1937, sweeps in 1938 and 1939)?|
