A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Easy Game In The Books But LA Looms

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on January 3, 2022

It took a half to get going but watching Trey throw deep balls that Jimmy can’t (see: 1/20 Super Bowl) gives me hope for the Niners future. I wanted to see more running success but that’s his god given talent, it’s in there, that’ll come out in due time. At this point, unless Jimmy is completely healthy, I want to see Trey running this offense vs LA. Jimmy just has so many limitations (can’t move in pocket, weak arm, broken thumb) to watch his slog through that game…..

    If they come out like the second half then you have to start TLance. Garappolo should only be brought in of all hell breaks loose and they sputter.

    Lance play was very encouraging in second half; just looked like he got more comfortable longer he played.
    good W for team–D clamped down hard on Mills and Texans offense, special teams didn’t have any notable screwups, and OL did decent enough job protecting Lance and opening up holes for running game though most of those were to left side.

    Samuel gained 19 yards on 7 carries, and iirc one of those (to left, again) was for 13. Too valuable to keep doing this; teams have scouted it and Texans played it well. They even ran one to Kittle that gained 6 yards.

    Tale of two halves. As WillieDav said, I think Lance got more comfortable as the game wore on. This was a good and a much needed win. With New Orleans winning yesterday, a loss would have been monumental, especially to a POS team like the Texans.

    Will be interesting to see how it all shakes-out this week. Niners need to win to ensure they punch their ticket.

    If JG can throw the ball, I think he will get the nod based on everything I have read to date.

    Ah just read obit in NYT of Sandra Jaffe, woman who bought Preservation Hall in 1961 with her husband and had kept it up and running ever since, even through Katrina. By 1963 they started sending out local musicians on tour, and I’d see them in early 70s at Stanford, playing in Dinkelspiel Hall. This was great band of older musicians, including Billie and De De Pierce, clarinetist Willie Humphrey, trombonist Big Jim Robinson and amazing drummer Josiah (Cie) Frazier.
    Not a style of music I listen to anymore, but an institution nonetheless.

    • Winder said, on January 3, 2022 at 8:50 am

      I saw them play at Stanford in the early 70’s too. I love New Orleans style Jazz. It makes me happy.

      Bozo- Thanks for the Doreen Ketchens tune on the last thread. Fantastic.

      • willedav said, on January 3, 2022 at 9:17 am

        yes it was, cool little band. Loved the tuba player holding down bottom end and even taking a solo. All those people walking by behind them, no one stopped to listen and only the guy in #23 Saints jersey tossed $$ in.
        I’ll check out Nina Simone version later today, thanks for sharing.

        Are you familiar with Offbeat magazine?
        It was created and run by a great old Brooklyn buddy of mine named Joseph Irrera.
        How in the world that transpired is a very long story.
        They are having very hard times these days…

      • djloo27 said, on January 3, 2022 at 11:47 am

        Maybe not created…

      • Bozo said, on January 3, 2022 at 11:57 am

        Loo, I’m a huge fan of Offbeat magazine. Your buddy is the Managing Editor and Jan Ramsey is the Publisher. Last year we switched to an online subscription, I do miss getting the magazine though. It’s free in New Orleans and their Jazz Fest bible is the best. They just lost their digs on Frechman street but were able to move into the old Mint, where the Jazz Museum is. I read where they had to get rid of a lot of material/collectables for the move into the smaller space.

      • djloo27 said, on January 3, 2022 at 12:29 pm

        Glad to hear that Bozo.

    • Bozo said, on January 3, 2022 at 11:24 am

      Their son Ben Jaffe runs the Preservation Hall now and plays tuba with the Band. By the most part the band is getting younger (they had to, right?), like the sax player, Clint Maedgen, used to see him in the New Orleans Bingo show. A kind of a cabaret/lounge thing with strippers and clowns (I loved those guys).
      If ya get a chance check out the doc, Tuba to Cuba, about the Preservation Hall bands trip to Cuba.

      Glad y’all liked Doreen, she is the real deal IMO, I think the tuba player is her husband and the drummer is their daughter. I’ve been lucky enough to see her playing on the streets a handful of times, which always makes me happy. There is a lot of vids of her on Youtube if you’re interested in more of her stuff.

    Hey I was encouraged to see Trey Lance playing,he was definitely out of whack early with nerves in the first half, decision making, pocket presence definitely needed improvement holding on to the ball to long.Second Half much better on his reads,hit some big passes,the naked bootleg against throwing against the grain to Deebo for the TD was a beauty, Kittle another highlight reel catch for 29 yards,Mitchell running hard and getting a TD catch as well.
    But the bottom line they have to win to get it in next week and Trey’s still learning on the fly, and my gut says it will be JimmyG that gives them the best chance to win, as he as done in the past and earlier in the season against them.49ers have that “Owneage factor “ 5 straight wins that can’t be ignored anymore.Their in the Rams and coach McVay’s psychological heads.All on the line Shanahan’s going with his more experienced boy Jimmy book it,to start, maybe some series for Trey though to mix it up..

    • chipower9 said, on January 3, 2022 at 12:12 pm

      I agree with you, Kat. At this stage (last game of the season), and to control your destiny you must win. I love Trey and think he is going to be awesome, but for this upcoming game, if JG can grip/throw the ball with no issues, I too think he will get the start.

      If JG does start, I like the idea of having some scripted plays for Trey to get in there a bit. Kind of what the Raiders have been doing with Mariota (he got into a handful of plays against the Colts, yesterday).

    • Winder said, on January 3, 2022 at 1:08 pm

      I think there is a real future for Trey with the Niners. He is just a kid and he handled everything pretty darn well yesterday.

      • willedav said, on January 3, 2022 at 2:46 pm

        And for next year he’ll be able to roll with it as #1 coming in right from get go.

  7. Flavor said, on January 3, 2022 at 3:25 pm

    this is absurd.

    • snarkk said, on January 3, 2022 at 3:55 pm

      Apparently this has been simmering for quite a while since some weak criticism quite a while back; now, Rosenthal’s contract was up. MLB management now a clown show. Meanwhile, Susan Slusser the local Giants writer showed her HOF ballot — she actually voted for Bonds and Clemens, but not Kent. Some clown writer from San Diego submitted a ballot with nobody, not one player, selected. The whole HOF process continues to be an absolute joke…

    • xoot said, on January 3, 2022 at 4:14 pm

      I’m a big Rosenthal fan now! He’ll be fine.

      Slusser started voting for Bonds a few years back, soon after she and her husband worked closely with Roger Angell in their successful effort to get him the writer’s HOF award (although he’s never been a BWAHAHA member). Coincidental? I doubt it. Angell has always been a strong Bonds proponent.

      • snarkk said, on January 3, 2022 at 4:32 pm

        If that’s why she changed her mind, then it just shows in yet another way how the voting is a joke. For a few years she was against Bonds, then a major name writer gets to know her and convinces her to do a 180? Gil Hodges is now in, after being out since his first ballot in 1969? Maybe Kent gets in in 2065 after he’s been dead a decade or so…

      • xoot said, on January 3, 2022 at 4:42 pm

        Well, he’s a sage and she’s still learning. I give her credit.

        The standards:
        “5. Voting: Voting shall be based upon the player’s record, playing ability, integrity, sportsmanship, character, and contributions to the team(s) on which the player played.”

        why should the beat writers et al weigh in on “integrity, sportsmanship, character”? Most of the writers are shills. Theoretically, I suppose, they’re the intelligentsia of the game. As a practical matter, however, most of them are fucking hacks. Very few are journalists.

      The cops used to let you slide if you were parked on the side of the road sleeping it off.
      I guess they don’t do that anymore. Maybe he was blocking traffic.

      • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on January 3, 2022 at 8:03 pm

        Yeah, I was wondering about that. I mean, is it really a DUI if he’s… parked? PUI?

      • unca_chuck said, on January 4, 2022 at 10:05 am

        He stopped on an on-ramp apparently. I thought shit like this might happen.

  9. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on January 3, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    Back in mid-70s, age 20 or so, I did a couple of road trips between NJ and western locales for a couple months at a time. Not able to legally drink for a month or 2 in Colorado, on the way back east, hit Nebraska where the drinking age was 19. Overdid it, of course. Woke up in the morning completely unaware of where I was, besides clearly being inside my tent. Heard baseballs being caught and hit. Peaked out the tent to see where I’d pitched it in the middle of the night, and it was right at 2nd base on a little league field in a park. My car was somewhere in center field. Kids were starting to warm up for a game. 2 local cops stood there looking at me, hands on their hips, not sure what to do. I quickly struck the tent, moved my car, and collapsed on a picnic table with a huge hangover headache. I asked one of the cops where we were. He said “Iowa”. Dexter, Iowa, in fact, right off I-80. My own field of dreams. No summons were issued. I’ve spent the rest of my life trying to piece that night back together in my mind…

    That is pretty funny Paul. So is statement from Hobbs’ lawyer that he has “concerns” it doesn’t mean his client was guilty of DUI under Nevada law. So, he was out with friends, nobody (including Hobbs) could remember where he lived so they conveniently dropped him off in an unlocked car parked on an off ramp?

    • Flavor said, on January 4, 2022 at 9:01 am

      “including Hobbs” LMFAO

  11. Bozo said, on January 4, 2022 at 8:10 am

    Years ago, a friend of mine got popped for being passed out in his car. Even though the car was turned off, they took him in because the keys were still in the ignition.

  12. willedav said, on January 4, 2022 at 8:44 am

    Meanwhile…LA Times reports death at age 46 of Deputy DA Kelly Ernby, who “felt ill” shortly after speaking at rally, and died of Covid complications a month later. “There is nothing that matters more than our freedoms right now” she was quoted as telling crowd at anti vax mandate rally (wonder how many masked attendees there) in Irvine, according to Daily Beast. This stuff is so sad, and just so unnecessary.

    • snarkk said, on January 4, 2022 at 9:38 am

      I’m sad for those she may have helped to convince to not vaxx up, and they got Covid and were hospitalized or died, and/or spread it to others who met those fates. IDK her vaxx status, but if she chose to be unvaxxed, there are consequences from that “freedom”. I know people who have now gotten Covid for the second time in the last year or so — they did not vaxx up before or after the first bout of it — this second time was just as highly predictable as the first time …

  13. unca_chuck said, on January 4, 2022 at 10:15 am

    Fuck, man. If these people want to do themselves in by being anti-vaxx after all the evidence to the contrary, so be it. My wife’s best friend who is pre-diabetic and overweight and unvaxxed just found out she has COVID. Her husband of course is unvaxxed. She’s not feeling too bad on day 4, but the people I know who have died were OK for about a week and then took the turn. So, their 3 kids stand to lose both parents in the next couple weeks. Don’t know if they are Omicron or what, but why take such a huge risk?

    My wife was in Hawaii with her 2 months ago and had driven her to the clinic to get vaxxed, and she bailed. I hope against hope they get through this, but who knows? The kids, one of who is a pro surfer (19), is of course vaxxed, and he just tested positive and is asymptomatic.

    • willedav said, on January 4, 2022 at 11:38 am

      Oh I hear you, and Snarkk. Hard to have compassion, and you hear these stories every day, some media person with many followers who has railed against mandates etc., catches virus and dies from it. I know someone who has voice objection to being “forced” by govt or work to do this and remains unvaxed along with his wife.
      Andrew Wiggins said same thing, when asked if he felt good after getting vaxed. He said NO not all and felt he was forced into it. Um, yeah, if you want to play b-ball and get paid $20 mil for it.

  14. djloo27 said, on January 4, 2022 at 10:59 am

    When you test positive here, they don’t tell you which variant you have.
    I guess it doesn’t matter as far as what you’ll do about it…

    • snarkk said, on January 4, 2022 at 12:53 pm

      They can’t sequence every PCR test for which variant is detected. Takes too long and costs too much. They sequence by sampling and then apply statistics to estimate which variant is prevalent in the tested population. It’s a problem because only one monoclonal antibody treatment in circulation now works against Omicron, which is in extremely short supply. The prior two in broader supply that work for Delta don’t work on Omicron, which is now the prevalent variant in most places. So, if you give one that works on Delta to somebody who actually has the Omicron, that treatment is basically just wasted…

  16. Winder said, on January 4, 2022 at 12:26 pm

    What I don’t like about the anti-vaxxers is that they feel their freedoms are more important than the people they infect. Civilization really only works if people are willing to give and take concerning safety measures for everyone. America is not one of those places. For those who feel the vaccine is a government conspiracy for control or whatever. should move to one of those bunkers in Idaho. At least we would know where they were. I don’t know if it’s age or what but I am really angry. All I got is one vote so it’s out of my control.

      Selfishness and idiocy egged on by the morass of liars and the propaganda rife on social media has taken over and bamboozled a large minority of our population, and in other countries, too. I just saw an article last night where a group of Navy Seals succeeded in convincing a right wing fed district judge in TX to issue a prelim injunction barring the Navy from forcing them to vaxx up. This is the Navy Seals, for kreissakes. They’ve taken every vaxx imaginable so that they are in constant readiness for a mission, but this one they claim violates their first amendment religious rights– that the MRNA vaxx manufacturing has something to do with fetal material (which is a lie)– so they want a religious exemption, else the order to vaxx violates their constitutional rights? Even the pope says vaxx up. I say these Seals should be immediately discharged from the military for lying about their religious claims, and more to the point for refusing to carry out a lawful order under the UCMJ. This is clearly a political move. The Navy will appeal the injunction, but this is just more to show that the craziness has insinuated itself deeply into the various crevices of our society…

  17. willedav said, on January 4, 2022 at 1:00 pm

    Justices J M Harlan and Louis Brandeis both affirmed restrictions on personal liberty can be upheld “for protection of the public health” and “safety of general public”, in Supreme Court cases from 1905 (Jacobson vs. Mass) and in 1922 Zucht case in Texas of school child where parents refused vax and she was denied enrollment. Jacobson was protesting $5 fine, claiming rights of due process of 14th amendment violated.

    This is wall your “personal liberty” rights run into vs. greater need to protect society.

    • snarkk said, on January 4, 2022 at 1:38 pm

      The kid definitely has a strong arm. It was nice to see him throw a long pass attempt that resulted in a big PI penalty helping the Niners for once.
      All this stuff about JimmyG maybe playing Sunday has to be bunk.
      He basically has a severed thumb ligament, and it needs surgery — if the medical reports are accurate. So, if he tries to throw, he’ll be pitching helicopter balls, or will have to re-position his hand on the ball so much from normal that his throws will be even more off than usual. To me, there’s little downside in playing Vance. Another game just gives him more experience for next season. Even if the Niners sneak into the playoffs, seems to me they have only a puncher’s chance of getting to the conference championship game, let alone the SB…

      • Winder said, on January 4, 2022 at 2:05 pm

        If the kid settles down and gets comfortable I think the sky is the limit right now. Of course it’s team game but good QB play may just do wonders everywhere else. My glasses are kind of rosy right now but hope does that.

      • snarkk said, on January 4, 2022 at 2:20 pm

        If you slow mo that vid, the kid sure does not have a classic throwing motion. Kind of a modified shot put motion. He gets it there, but there’s definitely a wind up, not at all like JimmyG’s quick release. I assume they are working on that to help him get the ball out faster and accurately. He might not ever have the classic style of Marino, but it looks like he’s got the raw goods to be a top 10 QB when he gets the needed experience…

      • unca_chuck said, on January 4, 2022 at 4:45 pm

        JImmy G’s quick release? Compared to a sloth? He would have been sacked in the end zone. He would have missed the pass in the flat to Mitchell, and no way he hits Deebo on the deep crossing route.

      • snarkk said, on January 4, 2022 at 5:57 pm

        I think he has a pretty quick release.
        It’s how long he takes before throwing and the wrong team he throws to that’s the problem.

    “is it really a DUI if he’s… parked?”

    A somewhat similar issue was involved in the police shooting of Rayshard Brooks, an African American man, in the parking lot of a Burger King in Atlanta, only a few weeks after the murder of George Floyd.
    You all probably remember that Brooks had parked his car in the drive-through line, and then fallen asleep. Somebody called the police. The police woke up Rayshard, spent about half an hour chatting with him and questioning him, then suddenly started handcuffing him without really telling him clearly what he was being arrested for. Rayshard resisted, and the end result was that Rayshard got shot twice in the back and killed.
    The two officers botched the whole situation badly, in my opinion. They both have charges against them. Their trials will happen at some point.
    An angry crowd burned the Burger King down.

    • zumiee said, on January 4, 2022 at 2:53 pm

      They never said to him: “You failed the intoxication test. You drove here intoxicated, and so you are going to be arrested for DUI.”
      The body-cam of the officer that shot him has been released to the public. It’s on YouTube. It’s clear within a few minutes that Rayshard is intoxicated. Why not just tell him that? Instead they tried some slick tricky move of handcuffing him in a surprise move. Rayshard had shown no signs of resistance until then. The police had the keys to his car, and had parked it away from the drive-through line. Rayshard wasn’t going to be driving that car again that night. Several times Rayshard asked if he could walk to his sister’s house. The officers ignored that request.

      • unca_chuck said, on January 4, 2022 at 4:43 pm

        These things happen everywhere all the time. The Vallejo shooting was another one where the cops just opened fire with no apparent reason and without even communicating with the 22 year old kid they shot and killed. Unarmed, kneeling in the street with his hands up, the cop shoots him in the head with a rifle through the back window of an unmarked pickup truck. Which conveniently, the window is removed and destroyed, and the truck is put back into service by the Vallejo police without any kind of evidence gathering.

    Strange how this is de ja vu all over again.

    BTW, saw Kappy doing an exercise machine ad yesterday.

    • Winder said, on January 4, 2022 at 5:03 pm

      If he would have just learned to read defenses and see most of the field he would probably still be our QB. Maybe not now but he would have had a nice career. He just never learned to do it.

    • willedav said, on January 4, 2022 at 5:05 pm

      mm don’t think G is gonna have groundswell of support Alex Smith did. Smith of course had been massive fail vs. NY giants, who took away running game, crowded his receivers, and had great pass rush. Thrashed Harbs Niners.

      • unca_chuck said, on January 4, 2022 at 5:35 pm

        You mean the one where Kyle Williams did his best Preston Riley impersonation? Twice?

        Surely you jest. That would be like blaming Montana and Young for losing the NFC championship game 15-13 to those NYGs.

  24. unca_chuck said, on January 4, 2022 at 5:33 pm

    Did Lance make some rookie mistakes? Sure. He prolly should have been picked one more time, but he’s learning. His running was a bit indecisive, and he missed a 1st down by running out of bounds once. That shit can be fixed with reps and time. As the game progressed, he was getting a much better feel for it.

    Jimmy? The problem I have with Jimmy G is he’s making rookie mistakes in his 8th year in the pros. See the Tennessee game, the Seattle game, and the Indy game. 6 picks in 3 games. Ouch.

    10 picks and 7 fumbles in 13 games is shit. He doesn’t feel the pressure, he doesn’t know how to avoid trouble, and he takes too many sacks.

    I’d rather see Lance figure shit out than Jimmy trip over his dick. I seriously doubt Jimmy will be ready, and I think I saw John Lynch walking around the office with a hammer, but hey who knows? How bad will it be if Shamahan is forced to sit Jimmy midway through the 2nd quarter down 20-3?

    Wheeeee! A fittingly weird-ass end to a supremely weird-ass season. Yet somehow Shammy seems to be immune to the criticism and the abject failure of this team during his 5 year reign. Jimmy may have a good winning percentage, but Shanny sure doesn’t. 38-42? Fuck that. Sure, he inherited a mess, but this year was supposed to be our ascendancy.

    Shanny did a lot of damage to this team by starting Sanu over Aiyuk and by his own admission was fucking up the play calling for the first 6 weeks. I’m ready to move on from Sam the Sham.

      I must admit I sometimes look at the NFL site’s highlights, and the top teams’ offenses really hum in the passing game compared to the Niners. Lots of longer passes, spread inside and outside the numbers. Niners’ yardage, in contrast, is a lot of YAC after short passes, with lots of crossing routes and slants, which are dangerous for pics, bobbles, blocks/tips and your WRs getting smoked. Deebo’s YAC makes up for a lot of JimmyG mediocrity. I’m not a fan much of NFL anymore, but I’m certainly not a fan of a lot of runs, which Shanahan dials up because he doesn’t trust JG, and now, not the kid…

        Lance has a bigger and more accurate arm than Jimmy can dream of. The hope is they go deep/mid-range more. This is how Russell Wilson gets so many rushing yards. If the Niners keep playing short/mid-range passes, the running lanes off scrambles will not be there.

    A little Dodger talk…

    This article appears to say no Kershaw.
    That would surprise me…

      And they project Trevor Bauer as the #1 starter… Hmmm…

    I stopped saying “happy new year” to people after January 1st.
    Some people don’t stop till mid-February.
    It was one of the subtle ways callers would get on Francesa’s nerves…

    Unc, game I’m talking about 2012 October NY Giants thrashed SF 26-3. They sacked Smith 4 times he threw 3 ints, 19-30 for 200 yds with 1 bomb of 55. Gore held to 36 yds in 8 carries. Harbs brought Kaep in late and he did fine. Couple games later and Kaep was in there to start–Harbs knews Giants D and Coughlin had Smith’s number and never looked back.

    By Rams game, Kaep came in to rally team to 24-24 tie, Smith was hurt and rest is hist. Kaep took team to SB where they lost to Ravens.
