Clay Wendler [8:06 PM]:


Stephen White [7:56 PM]:


eightyseven [7:55 PM]:

IT’S ONNNNNNNNN


One Piece of Cake [7:54 PM]:

The SD comeback coincided directly with Harris leaving the game. Big difference in defensive performance with and without him


Ryan Van Bibber [7:53 PM]:

Third-and-17 …


Stephen White [7:53 PM]:

Thomas tackled Moreno and started celebrating lmaoooo


Stephen White [7:52 PM]:

Game, blouses


Charlie Gebow [7:52 PM]:

Ballgame


Oh No Romo [7:51 PM]:

There’s no way they throw on 3rd and short, right?


Stephen White [7:51 PM]:

Moreno wanted to finish em off


Stephen White [7:50 PM]:

Big run by Moreno


Stephen White [7:48 PM]:

Keep inviting disaster throwing it. I know its Peyton but still


Oh No Romo [7:47 PM]:

Rivers GIF!?


Stephen White [7:47 PM]:

They cant stop the Broncos though. Too many injuries. 97 no awareness of the route combo


Stephen White [7:45 PM]:

Its basically cover three. Linebacker doesnt buzz to the flat. Not sure why they were in that in that situation tho


Stephen White [7:44 PM]:

And then that happens. Wow


Ryan Van Bibber [7:44 PM]:

Does John Fox think he has a 24-point lead?


Mark Ennis [7:43 PM]:

I just can’t believe this is happening.


Stephen White [7:43 PM]:

Why?


James Dator [7:41 PM]:

4th 4:00
Don’t count out Philibuster Philip 17
Trying to match Tebow’s playoff win total 24

Stephen White [7:40 PM]:

He was out


Oh No Romo [7:40 PM]:

Another Chargers injury


Stephen White [7:40 PM]:

Bad time for that


Stephen White [7:37 PM]:

One score game


Stephen White [7:34 PM]:

Allen finally getting loose


Stephen White [7:33 PM]:

Smart by Brown getting out of bounds


Stephen White [7:33 PM]:

Shaun Phillips hurting his old team


Ryan Van Bibber [7:32 PM]:

4th 5:43
So you’re saying there’s a chance 14
Omaha tourism board 24

Stephen White [7:32 PM]:

Might not have gone 10 yards without hitting a Charger had Decker left it alone. Hard to sit back tho


Mark Ennis [7:31 PM]:

Why didn’t Peyton Manning recover that?


Stephen White [7:31 PM]:

Hmmmmm


James Dator [7:27 PM]:

@Ryan Van Bibber Oh wait! Now I remember!


James Dator [7:27 PM]:

@Ryan Van Bibber Weird. I remember “fat and slow.” Ricky Proehl was selling him so hard at his pro day


Ryan Van Bibber [7:27 PM]:

@James Dator b/c he was over-hydrated … remember that stupid rumor that someone leaked to Shefter & Mort, that he failed a drug test


Ryan Van Bibber [7:26 PM]:

think they have a snowball’s chance now?


James Dator [7:26 PM]:

I will never understand how Keenan Allen made it to the third round


Stephen White [7:25 PM]:

Now you wanna take shots…


Dimitri Dorlis [7:24 PM]:

@sgw94 Because Whisenhunt is phoning it in?


One Piece of Cake [7:23 PM]:

Jammer is awful


Charlie Gebow [7:23 PM]:

Jammer is channeling Rahim Moore


Stephen White [7:23 PM]:

Why did the Chargers wait so long for this?


Stephen White [7:23 PM]:

DRC hearing the cash register sound going off in his ears lol


Oh No Romo [7:20 PM]:


Cheese Pudding [7:19 PM]:

If the SB consists of Seattle vs. Denver, could we call it “The Pot Bowl”?


Stephen White [7:18 PM]:

So…a running game battle next week between the Broncos and Pats?


Stephen White [7:17 PM]:

Moreno shuts the door with that TD run


Dimitri Dorlis [7:17 PM]:

That defensive PI changed the whole drive….


Charlie Gebow [7:16 PM]:

RUN THE DANG BALL BRONCOBOBO


Stephen White [7:15 PM]:

Moreno again


Stephen White [7:14 PM]:

Man that was one hell of an impact


unxknownxorigin [7:14 PM]:

Gilchirst concussions 2 Chargers 7


Clay Wendler [7:10 PM]:

SMOKEY LEFT


Charlie Gebow [7:08 PM]:

And they can’t figure out where things are now


Cyd Zeigler [7:07 PM]:

Welker pushes off – and it’s PI on the defense. Lol.


Stephen White [7:06 PM]:

Uncatchable


Stephen White [7:05 PM]:

Broncos should be running it


the Glenn [7:03 PM]:

Hey…gotta keep the game close. Fans don’t watch blow outs.


James Dator [7:03 PM]:

20130124_jla_ar3_208

Peyton Manning can’t stop talking about Omaha

Everybody loves Omaha.


Stephen White [7:02 PM]:

Thats not a block int he back even if he turned away…


Stephen White [7:02 PM]:

Holding


Ryan Van Bibber [7:02 PM]:

105 yards, but ….


Charlie Gebow [7:02 PM]:

Probably coming back


Clay Wendler [7:00 PM]:


Stephen White [6:58 PM]:

Got em coach


Stephen White [6:55 PM]:

3 man rush and Rivers makes them pay


unxknownxorigin [6:54 PM]:

those kids look bettr than the Chargers


Stephen White [6:49 PM]:

Still no Mathews


Cyd Zeigler [6:48 PM]:

We’ve seen Manning’s only red zone interception – and only Prater’s second miss within 50 – of the season in one game.


Stephen White [6:46 PM]:

Nope


Stephen White [6:46 PM]:

Cbargers sent everybody


Rodger Sherman [6:45 PM]:



Points by the San Diego Chargers tonight 0
Golden Globes won by the San Diego Chargers tonight 0

Stephen White [6:44 PM]:

Somebody gotta get benched bruh


Stephen White [6:43 PM]:

Running game has been so key this weekend


Stephen White [6:41 PM]:

He obviously crossed into the neutral zone. Obviously


Charlie Gebow [6:41 PM]:

Hey, a Neutral Zone Infraction. How new


Stephen White [6:41 PM]:

Cmon mannnnn


Clay Wendler [6:40 PM]:


James Dator [6:38 PM]:

It’s one of those days for SD


Stephen White [6:38 PM]:

Gotta catch that. Also no Mathews again that drive


Cyd Zeigler [6:37 PM]:

With all the illegal pick plays Manning has run over the years, that penalty is rich.


Stephen White [6:37 PM]:

Yeah that was obvious. Dont use your hands


Stephen White [6:36 PM]:

Big opi


Stephen White [6:36 PM]:

Or maybe Allen should have sat down right there


Stephen White [6:35 PM]:

Bad pass


Oh No Romo [6:35 PM]:

@Ryan Van Bibber Shouldn’t the team be the source?


Ryan Van Bibber [6:34 PM]:


Ryan Van Bibber [6:34 PM]:

crowd noise in Denver makes you wonder if marijuana sales in Denver are as big as they say


Stephen White [6:34 PM]:

Keenan Allen signing


Stephen White [6:33 PM]:

Stamping your feet: 2 year old or starting NFL QB?


Cyd Zeigler [6:33 PM]:

Nantz: “This is one of the louder days I’ve ever seen at this stadium.”


unxknownxorigin [6:33 PM]:

that was hilarious


unxknownxorigin [6:33 PM]:

please tell me you have a GIF of 91 mocking rivers


Charlie Gebow [6:33 PM]:

A positive pass play for SD? Sacre Bleu


James Dator [6:32 PM]:

Philip Rivers just increased his net passing yards by 400%


Cyd Zeigler [6:32 PM]:

Broncos are -2 in turnover margin and up 17.


Stephen White [6:30 PM]:

I do very much hope some Chargers beat writer asks McCoy WTF was going on with Mathews carries the second half last week and all game today


Ryan Van Bibber [6:29 PM]:

3rd 9:39
Thunder-less 0
Broncos 17

Stephen White [6:29 PM]:

Juuuuust a bit inside. Pretty sure Chargers are dunzo if they arent willing to a) ride Mathews and b) take shots down the field.


James Dator [6:26 PM]:

Just a touch of holding, a smidgen really


Mike.Cranford [6:25 PM]:

DIDN’T MEAN TO HIT YOU IN THE CHEST!!


Stephen White [6:25 PM]:

Cant throw it any better than that


Stephen White [6:22 PM]:

Smart to take that time out. Big third down here


Stephen White [6:21 PM]:

Peyton took a shot but it was way too long


James Dator [6:19 PM]:


Clay Wendler [6:19 PM]:

pagano needs to grow his hair and be rob ryan 2.0


Cyd Zeigler [6:19 PM]:

Chargers aren’t jumping in the second half…


Stephen White [6:18 PM]:

Peyton looks to be in the zone now


James Dator [6:06 PM]:

Kaepernick_copy

Colin Kaepernick has an impressive to-do list

We’ve all done some of these, and it’s nice to see Kaepernick being one of us.


One Piece of Cake [6:04 PM]:

More suprising: Ineffectiveness of Rivers or Effectiveness of Denver D?


Cyd Zeigler [6:04 PM]:

1 passing yard??!!


unxknownxorigin [6:04 PM]:

@Cyd Zeigler more bolo tie offense


Clay Wendler [6:03 PM]:


UnstableMongoose [6:02 PM]:

No turf monster. Punter just hit him so hard it took him a couple seconds to feel it.


UnstableMongoose [6:01 PM]:

Seems like a waste of that incredible turnover.


Clay Wendler [6:01 PM]:


Cyd Zeigler [6:01 PM]:

The Chargers offense isn’t right. Go into the locker room and come back out with a new gameplan.


Ryan Van Bibber [6:01 PM]:

they had one TO left


One Piece of Cake [6:01 PM]:

@Clefo unbelivably ironic. peyton threw a pick after he turf monster got him last year too


Ryan Van Bibber [6:00 PM]:

they’re just going to take a knee? It works, but seems like w/ Rivers you could run a play or two


Stephen White [6:00 PM]:

Still 14-0 at the half


UnstableMongoose [6:00 PM]:

Thoughts on taking the knee there? Denver gets the ball next, right?


One Piece of Cake [5:59 PM]:

That was impressive


Stephen White [5:59 PM]:

Damn Decker, hit him right in his chest


Charlie Gebow [5:59 PM]:

Decker’s turf monster comes up huge


Stephen White [5:59 PM]:

What an interception. Great awareness


UnstableMongoose [5:58 PM]:

Gorgeous pick.


Matt Ufford [5:58 PM]:

holy balls, what a pick


Stephen White [5:58 PM]:

Weak pick attempt by Decker


Stephen White [5:58 PM]:

Sailed that one


Stephen White [5:56 PM]:

Moreno with another good run


unxknownxorigin [5:55 PM]:

#papa johns?


Charlie Gebow [5:52 PM]:

OMAHA STYLEE


One Piece of Cake [5:52 PM]:

#Omaha


unxknownxorigin [5:52 PM]:

i cant remember the last time i saw this many neutral zone infractions rather than false starts


Stephen White [5:52 PM]:

SMH Ridiculous


One Piece of Cake [5:51 PM]:

last year*


One Piece of Cake [5:50 PM]:

last yeat


Stephen White [5:50 PM]:


Mark Ennis [5:48 PM]:

The only tackle he didn’t break was his own.


One Piece of Cake [5:48 PM]:

The grass always comes to play when Decker faces the chargers


Stephen White [5:48 PM]:

Decker with the punt return. Broke all those tackles then tripped over his own feet lol


eightyseven [5:48 PM]:

Oh jeez


Ryan Van Bibber [5:48 PM]:

another punter injury


Stephen White [5:47 PM]:

Might not want to try that again against DRC


Stephen White [5:46 PM]:

Chargers gotta take a shot soon to back the Broncos up.


Clay Wendler [5:45 PM]:


Ryan Van Bibber [5:44 PM]:

2nd 6:00
Philip Rivers and the Rivettes 0
Guy who keeps shouting OMAHA 14

Oh No Romo [5:42 PM]:

@Ryan Van Bibber He looked upset about something at least. That’s what I thought was bugging him.


Stephen White [5:42 PM]:


Ryan Van Bibber [5:41 PM]:

@Oh No Romo looks like he wanted a call for the hit on Manning


eightyseven [5:40 PM]:

…Wes Welker*


Ryan Van Bibber [5:40 PM]:

here we go


Oh No Romo [5:40 PM]:

What was Fox upset about?


Stephen White [5:40 PM]:

Welker with the quick out from slot TD off peyton half roll left


eightyseven [5:39 PM]:

I miss


Stephen White [5:39 PM]:

He was holding Thomas the whole time


Cyd Zeigler [5:39 PM]:

@sgw94 They don’t want Manning to blow another playoff game.


Danny Paramo [5:39 PM]:

The Niners played great look out seahawks!


Ryan Van Bibber [5:36 PM]:

Te’o down


Stephen White [5:36 PM]:

Very impressed with Broncos commitment to the run today


Stephen White [5:34 PM]:

Chargers undisciplined


Stephen White [5:33 PM]:

Now Ball coming down hill


Stephen White [5:32 PM]:

Moreno with a nice run


NBSP [5:31 PM]:

Well this is certainly shaping up to be the offensive slugfest I expected


Stephen White [5:31 PM]:

But that screen works to Moreno. Told yall the Broncos are the GOAT screen team


Stephen White [5:30 PM]:

Rarely see OPI on these Denver screens


Ryan Van Bibber [5:30 PM]:

462057523

Philip Rivers masters angry clapping

Get him the ball now!


One Piece of Cake [5:29 PM]:

ball don’t lie


NBSP [5:29 PM]:

I love how Peyton Manning blocked that kick


Stephen White [5:28 PM]:

Last game the Chargers exploited the fact that Vickerson was out and the Broncos didnt play Jackson much inside on early downs. With him in there today things have been a lot more clogged up.


NBSP [5:28 PM]:

Would that even have had the distance?


Stephen White [5:27 PM]:

Welp


Clay Wendler [5:27 PM]:


Stephen White [5:26 PM]:

And there is Jackson getting the sack


AloysiusEwing [5:26 PM]:

There wasn’t indisputable evidence to call it incomplete. And there wasn’t indisputable evidence to call it complete with him being down. So the call stands, even though the call was clearly wrong (should have been one of the other two). That review rule needs to be changed.


Stephen White [5:25 PM]:

Kind Dunlap with another big block on a Mathews run


Ryan Van Bibber [5:25 PM]:

there’s matthews


NBSP [5:25 PM]:

@Clefo I believe casting stones and goat’s blood is involved in the review process


Stephen White [5:24 PM]:

Mathews busts it up out of the crowd for a big gain


Stephen White [5:24 PM]:

And Mathews is back in


Charlie Gebow [5:23 PM]:

NFL catch rules make no sense to me


Cyd Zeigler [5:23 PM]:

That’s insane


Stephen White [5:23 PM]:

That is terrible


Ryan Van Bibber [5:23 PM]:


cbenti60 [5:23 PM]:

Stands… anyone read those lips


Stephen White [5:22 PM]:

Now Is indicative of injury


One Piece of Cake [5:22 PM]:

@cbenti60 his butt hit the ground before it came out though


Stephen White [5:22 PM]:

Last week the Chargers curiously sat Mathews some in the second half even though they claimed he wasnt hurt. Not sure him not being in there


cbenti60 [5:21 PM]:

Didn’t they change it so that players no longer have to do a football move? That makes me think fumble


Stephen White [5:21 PM]:

Not sure about this


Charlie Gebow [5:21 PM]:

Yeah, that SHOULD be incomplete


Cyd Zeigler [5:20 PM]:

Incomplete. Don’t see how they can rule it otherwise.


Stephen White [5:20 PM]:

Especially with the Megatron rule


NBSP [5:20 PM]:

Looks like a catch and down by contact?


Stephen White [5:19 PM]:

Never had control. Should be incomplete imo


James Dator [5:19 PM]:

1389565102

Philip Rivers masters angry clapping

Get him the ball now!


Stephen White [5:19 PM]:

Nah, how could that be a fumble?


Stephen White [5:19 PM]:

Thomas cant hold on after the hit.


Clay Wendler [5:17 PM]:


Clay Wendler [5:15 PM]:


Stephen White [5:15 PM]:

Good catch by Welker


NBSP [5:12 PM]:

I’m pretty sure he was tackled on that play…


Stephen White [5:11 PM]:

They were all over Allen. Pass rush got Rivers off his spot too


Stephen White [5:10 PM]:

He mad


Stephen White [5:10 PM]:

Malik Jackson has made a difference so far vs the run even though he isnt the guy getting credit for the tackle


Clay Wendler [5:08 PM]:


Ryan Van Bibber [5:07 PM]:

@Mark Ennis hey, at least Bucs dumped Schiano. One up, one down. Karma evened out


Mark Ennis [5:05 PM]:

My team hired Todd Grantham and Bobby Petrino this week you guys. My face hurts so much.


James Dator [5:03 PM]:

1st 2:25
Broncos 7
Bolos 0

Stephen White [5:02 PM]:

No pressure on most of the drive


unxknownxorigin [5:02 PM]:

traffic


Stephen White [5:02 PM]:

TD pass to Thomas


unxknownxorigin [5:02 PM]:

nice catch in traffuc


Stephen White [5:02 PM]:

Drive*


Stephen White [5:01 PM]:

Methodical deive by the Broncos


unxknownxorigin [5:01 PM]:

“apple” was the audible i think


Stephen White [5:00 PM]:

Nice run


Ryan Van Bibber [4:59 PM]:


UnstableMongoose [4:58 PM]:

Did he get hit headlong by Welker or did he drop it before the contact? Can’t tell from the angle they showed.


Stephen White [4:58 PM]:

Looks like the Chargers are trying to audible with Peyton. Thats usually not advisable


unxknownxorigin [4:56 PM]:

dunno how he dropped it.


Stephen White [4:56 PM]:

Oh man you gotta catch that pick


Stephen White [4:56 PM]:

Chargers blitz again, Teo didnt seem to know where he was supposed to go


Stephen White [4:55 PM]:

Or almost a first


Stephen White [4:55 PM]:

Thomas muscled his way to a first down on that WR screen. Thought the Chargers had it sniffed out


Stephen White [4:53 PM]:

Chargers blitz, peyton avoids and gets it to Thomas for the first


unxknownxorigin [4:53 PM]:

shoulda caught that


Stephen White [4:52 PM]:

Drop by Welker brings up 3rd and long


Stephen White [4:49 PM]:

And Chargers have to punt


Stephen White [4:48 PM]:

Guard looked for blitz for too long. Fluker gave up his inside expecting help


UnstableMongoose [4:48 PM]:

Does the Chargers OL exist?


Stephen White [4:48 PM]:

3man rush gets there


Stephen White [4:46 PM]:

Ouch facemask gives the Chargers a first down after facing 3rd and 17


Stephen White [4:45 PM]:

Guard blocked air


NBSP [4:45 PM]:

Thump


Stephen White [4:45 PM]:

Broncos blitz and get there


Stephen White [4:44 PM]:

Green on a shallow crosser for the first down.


Stephen White [4:43 PM]:

Chargers burn a timeout early and Rivers is already at it with the demonstrative antics


Stephen White [4:40 PM]:

Chargers ball first


jake.fain.3 [4:32 PM]:

Broncos of Chargers?


Stephen White [4:25 PM]:


drkato9 [4:19 PM]:

@Mark Ennis


Ryan Van Bibber [4:18 PM]:


Stephen White [4:17 PM]:

Game*


Stephen White [4:17 PM]:

Nobody seems to want to point out that the quick screen to 87 was open on the play Peyton threw the interception near the end of the last gane


Mark Ennis [4:15 PM]:


Stephen White [4:06 PM]:

@Mark Ennis agreed


NBSP [4:04 PM]:

I love how Harbaugh’s trying to keep people off the field. He certainly knows how to lead by example


Mark Ennis [4:03 PM]:

@sgw94 how big were those touchdown-less trips inside the red zone for Carolina? Difference in the game.


Rodger Sherman [4:03 PM]:

game’s over but holy crap ted ginn is fast


Stephen White [4:02 PM]:

What a jerk move, fake punt lol


NBSP [4:02 PM]:

@Mark Ennis Worst to first for the Panthers this past year…


Mark Ennis [4:01 PM]:

hahahaha


Stephen White [4:01 PM]:

Panthers never seemed to adjust to anything in the second half


Stephen White [4:01 PM]:

49ers just beat em down and they actually made a halftime adjustment. I talked early in the game about how if the panthers were going to keep blitzing then the 49ers better get some sight adjustments ready and thats exactly what Boldin’s deep ball was


Mark Ennis [4:00 PM]:

@Run Home Jack Oh that would hurt me.


Ryan Nanni [4:00 PM]:

@Mark Ennis BORTLES


Mark Ennis [3:59 PM]:

If the Bucs get key guys in the draft, the NFC South is going to be awesome next year.


Stephen White [3:55 PM]:

Why isnt Gore in? Or Dixon?


NBSP [3:54 PM]:

But, but he pushed me!


Ryan Van Bibber [3:54 PM]:

three personal fouls! I think Jeff Fisher is guest-coaching the Panthers today


Dimitri Dorlis [3:53 PM]:

Lottttttttt of stupid things this weeknd


Stephen White [3:53 PM]:

Game over


Stephen White [3:53 PM]:

You cant be that stupid. Cant be.


Ryan Van Bibber [3:51 PM]:

@Mark Ennis lollllll


Mark Ennis [3:50 PM]:


Clay Wendler [3:50 PM]:


Ryan Van Bibber [3:49 PM]:

7 passes, 2 sacks & 2 runs on that last drive


Ryan Van Bibber [3:48 PM]:

how many of those sacks, including the helmet hit penalty, were coverage sacks


unxknownxorigin [3:48 PM]:

ill see you guys during the broncos chargers live chat


Mark Ennis [3:48 PM]:

Well, we’re getting the World War 3 NFC Championship Game we wanted.


NBSP [3:48 PM]:

In other news, Jim Harbaugh’s head just exploded.


unxknownxorigin [3:48 PM]:

man and i picked Carolina


Ryan Van Bibber [3:48 PM]:

man, the Panthers game plan is giving the 49ers a big assist in the second half


Oh No Romo [3:48 PM]:

Donte INTERCEPTIONtner?


Navy_Rebel [3:48 PM]:

I believe we’re done here


NBSP [3:47 PM]:

Wow, don’t agree with that flag. What’s he supposed to do?


Ryan Nanni [3:47 PM]:

Weeeeeeelp. #welp


Stephen White [3:47 PM]:

Good night irene


JohnnyGentle [3:47 PM]:

Game.


Navy_Rebel [3:47 PM]:

Great execution. Best spin of the day.


Charlie Gebow [3:47 PM]:

Harbaugh pirouette


Ryan Nanni [3:47 PM]:

GOODELLLLLLLLLLL


JohnnyGentle [3:46 PM]:

GIF ME HARGAUGH SNAP AND SPIN, STAT!


unxknownxorigin [3:46 PM]:

newton ran into him


Stephen White [3:46 PM]:

Super weak


unxknownxorigin [3:46 PM]:

newton ducked into it


unxknownxorigin [3:46 PM]:

what the heck is newton doing like an idiot… that shouldnt hav ebeen a flag also


Mark Ennis [3:46 PM]:

Helmet to helmet hit


Stephen White [3:46 PM]:

Now thats a sneak


Stephen White [3:45 PM]:

Good catch by Ginn


James Dator [3:45 PM]:

Need to run the hurry up, taking way too much time


Stephen White [3:45 PM]:

Or….that will happen


NBSP [3:45 PM]:

@sgw94 It’s not a meaningless stat, I just feel like it’s overemphasized at the expense of more useful metrics. Nice article here: http://www.bleedinggreennation.com/2013/9/24/4764692/why-time-of-possession-doesnt-matter-nfl-chip-kelly-eagles


Stephen White [3:45 PM]:

What they need to do is make sure they run it some too. Specifically with Cam


Ryan Van Bibber [3:44 PM]:

@Mark Ennis yeah, but the Bucs are liberated now


Stephen White [3:44 PM]:

Almost a pick


Ryan Van Bibber [3:44 PM]:

what the hell is Cam doing?


Mark Ennis [3:44 PM]:

LaFell is all the stuff Gruden thought Michael Clayton would be. (Bucs sadz over here)


Ryan Van Bibber [3:43 PM]:

@Mark Ennis coverage on Smtih on that last play wasn’t exactly smothering


JohnnyGentle [3:43 PM]:

Yikes, Cam.


Mark Ennis [3:42 PM]:

@Ryan Van Bibber Wow.


Ryan Van Bibber [3:42 PM]:

ZERO targets for Steve Smith in the second half so far


Stephen White [3:41 PM]:

@NBSP depends on your opponent. Vs an offense that doesnt score fast, yes it matters more. Against a high powered offense it doesnt matter at all.


NBSP [3:40 PM]:

@sgw94 Because time of possession matters more than points, right? I mean, that’s much better than if they took half as much time off the clock but scored two touchdowns, right?


Stephen White [3:39 PM]:


Stephen White [3:38 PM]:

I thought a TD would seal it. With under 8 minutes to go and up 13 a FG might have done the trick too


NBSP [3:38 PM]:

Well that was a timeout well spent


Stephen White [3:37 PM]:

That dumb ass QB sweep. I hate the 49ers version, Panthers version earlier was dope


Stephen White [3:37 PM]:


Mark Ennis [3:36 PM]:

@Run Home Jack the Lincoln-Douglas debate of assholes.


Ryan Nanni [3:35 PM]:

Pete Carroll-Jim Harbaugh is an asshole rivalry for the ages.


Stephen White [3:35 PM]:

Throw it to Boldin


Ryan Van Bibber [3:34 PM]:


Stephen White [3:34 PM]:

Smart. Man this drive is looooong lol


NBSP [3:34 PM]:

@JohnnyGentle Yes, the game is already over. I would suggest switching to the East Asian polo championship on NBC Sports until the Broncos-Chargers game.


Mark Ennis [3:34 PM]:


JohnnyGentle [3:32 PM]:

Can’t wait for the Niners’ timeout management to bite them in the ass against Seattle next week.


Clay Wendler [3:31 PM]:


Stephen White [3:31 PM]:

What a second effort to get close to a first down


Mark Ennis [3:30 PM]:

Frank Gore is amazing.


Clay Wendler [3:30 PM]:

gore is ageless


Stephen White [3:30 PM]:

At TD here and its over.


Ryan Van Bibber [3:30 PM]:

Niners OL is not disappointing today


Stephen White [3:29 PM]:

Seems like Gore breaks 3rd and short runs for big yardage on a regular basis


Stephen White [3:27 PM]:

Looked like some form of read option there which i think would have been the best call for this situation.


Mark Ennis [3:26 PM]:


NBSP [3:24 PM]:

@Clay Wendler Yeah, we know they’re all on the juice


NBSP [3:23 PM]:

Don’t worry Panthers fans, you’re winning the time of possession battle 26:40 to 18:20. Because according to every TV commentator, that matters


Clay Wendler [3:22 PM]:

if i was a niners fan my testosterone levels would be so high right now


Oh No Romo [3:22 PM]:

@Ryan Van Bibber “This is what we get for letting that Mark Twain impersonator drive.”


JohnnyGentle [3:21 PM]:

Is it just me, or is this game just flying by? Can’t believe we’re in the 4th already.


Ryan Van Bibber [3:21 PM]:


Ryan Van Bibber [3:21 PM]:

let’s check in w/ Riverboat Ron …


Charlie Gebow [3:21 PM]:

@Clay Wendler is it in my head?\


NBSP [3:20 PM]:

@Clay Wendler DOOMSDAY


Matty Fresh [3:20 PM]:

Newton looked frustrated after that second one. Let’s see how he responds


Clay Wendler [3:20 PM]:


James Dator [3:20 PM]:

Big loss for Panthers. Lester is good, but makes rookie mistakes.


NBSP [3:18 PM]:

4th and Rhode Island


Stephen White [3:18 PM]:

Cam was getting sacked as olsen leaked out. It was right in front of them on the replay. This is getting ridiculous


Ryan Nanni [3:18 PM]:

“You guys said we were playing 18 Mississippi!” – Cam Newton


Ryan Van Bibber [3:18 PM]:

back to back sacks. Newton had the first there too


Stephen White [3:18 PM]:

Consecutive sacks, no bueno


NBSP [3:17 PM]:

@sgw94 is that due to just the overall higher levels of defense in the playoffs?


Ryan Van Bibber [3:17 PM]:

Greg Olsen doesn’t get enough credit


Stephen White [3:17 PM]:

Nice spin move


Stephen White [3:17 PM]:

Bowman


Stephen White [3:16 PM]:

Seems like screens havent been as effective since the playoffs started.


Mark Ennis [3:15 PM]:

Man that is a Mike Shula special.


James Dator [3:15 PM]:

Sensible short passing, settling Newton after a few overthrows


NBSP [3:15 PM]:

The Panthers are certainly earning every single yard


Stephen White [3:15 PM]:

Nice pass to Lafell. That one was harder than it looked


Stephen White [3:13 PM]:

Big hit


Stephen White [3:12 PM]:

Even with the hold


Stephen White [3:12 PM]:

Better pass and thats six


Stephen White [3:12 PM]:

There is the x factor


James Dator [3:11 PM]:


Stephen White [3:11 PM]:

Of course the Panthers could just keep running it


Ryan Nanni [3:10 PM]:

Jim Harbaugh must be a terror at parent-teacher conferences.


Stephen White [3:09 PM]:

Cam sails a pass high again. He will be picked off again soon on one of those.


James Dator [3:09 PM]:

3rd 7:45
Stolen celebration 20
Angry fans 10

Stephen White [3:08 PM]:

Well duh, finally


NBSP [3:08 PM]:

@Mark Ennis Mike Tomlin eat your heart out


Mark Ennis [3:07 PM]:


Clay Wendler [3:05 PM]:


NBSP [3:05 PM]:

I’d say Kaepernick’s headphones are working


Stephen White [3:05 PM]:

Some masters level trolling from Kaep on that celebration


Clay Wendler [3:05 PM]:


James Dator [3:03 PM]:

Seems like the 49ers adjusted at halftime and the Panthers didn’t. Huge drive coming up


Stephen White [3:02 PM]:

Uhm Florence was hauling ass trying to make sure Kaep didnt beat him to the pylon. Effort wasnt the problem


Edson.Herman.14 [3:02 PM]:

TD Celebration GIF?..


unxknownxorigin [3:02 PM]:

3 peopel could have crushed him. wtf


Justyjay [3:01 PM]:

Kap is mocking Cam


Stephen White [3:01 PM]:

There it is


NBSP [3:01 PM]:

Ooopsy


Stephen White [3:00 PM]:

Well that was unfortunate


Ryan Van Bibber [3:00 PM]:

uh oh, gonna miss having Mikell on the field


Stephen White [3:00 PM]:

All that blitzing, gotta pay the piper at some point


Stephen White [2:59 PM]:

And Kaep needs to run more too this half.


Stephen White [2:59 PM]:

49ers needed to get back to running the ball.


Ryan Van Bibber [2:58 PM]:

Harbaugh told Pam Oliver that the 49ers need to ramp up the intensity in the second half … this could be fun


Stephen White [2:57 PM]:

Keep feeding Boldin


Ryan Van Bibber [2:57 PM]:

@NBSP agreed


NBSP [2:57 PM]:

@Ryan Van Bibber They should just stop playing and call it right now


Ryan Van Bibber [2:57 PM]:


Stephen White [2:57 PM]:


James Dator [2:55 PM]:

@sgw94 Steve Smith and Greg Olsen bail him out a lot.


Stephen White [2:54 PM]:

Newton has gotten away with some bad ball placement all day except for the one int


unxknownxorigin [2:53 PM]:

whose responsible to count the men in the huddle? head ref?


Clay Wendler [2:46 PM]:


James Dator [2:43 PM]:

Halftime
Angry coach 13
Angry players 10

unxknownxorigin [2:41 PM]:

@Clay Wendler Ref says to Jim, i told you not to wear cleats again… 15 yards


One Piece of Cake [2:41 PM]:

@James Dator Will Cam throw his laptop?


James Dator [2:41 PM]:

FloRida is the halftime entertainment, so there’s that.


Ryan Van Bibber [2:39 PM]:

@Run Home Jack BAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAA


Clay Wendler [2:39 PM]:


Ryan Nanni [2:38 PM]:


Secretary of Balloon Doggies [2:36 PM]:

@JohnnyGentle Heck with that. FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT


JohnnyGentle [2:36 PM]:

Everybody involved in this game needs to take a few deep breaths and listen to some smooth jazz over halftime.


Stephen White [2:36 PM]:

Panthers dominate most of the half but will likely be down 3 at halftime


Edson.Herman.14 [2:34 PM]:

TD


Charlie Gebow [2:34 PM]:

TOUCHDOWN SEAHAWKS


Mark Ennis [2:33 PM]:

Hahahaa, Boldin is the one telling Harbaugh to calm down.


Secretary of Balloon Doggies [2:33 PM]:

Yeah that’s a catch


Stephen White [2:33 PM]:

Genius but still an idiot


Stephen White [2:33 PM]:

Harbaugh is an idiot


Brett Stover [2:33 PM]:

That’s a touchdown.


Edson.Herman.14 [2:33 PM]:

Out nvm


Ryan Van Bibber [2:32 PM]:

Catch or no?


Mark Ennis [2:32 PM]:

Dude that’s a touchdown.


Stephen White [2:32 PM]:

TD. He blind as hell


James Dator [2:32 PM]:

That looks like a TD


JohnnyGentle [2:32 PM]:

Wait, that’s a catch!


Edson.Herman.14 [2:32 PM]:

in


JohnnyGentle [2:32 PM]:

NO CATCH!


Stephen White [2:32 PM]:

“Tired of watching it”? Im going to have to watch the rest of this on mucte


Edson.Herman.14 [2:31 PM]:

Run right


Secretary of Balloon Doggies [2:31 PM]:

The te on previous play had o pi


Ryan Nanni [2:31 PM]:

Well, yeah.


Stephen White [2:31 PM]:

That was definitely PI. 49ers better run it in here


Secretary of Balloon Doggies [2:30 PM]:

Also easily could have been a pick


Mark Ennis [2:30 PM]:

They didn’t complete the pass, but, that was the best blitz pickup the 49ers have had all day.


Stephen White [2:30 PM]:

PI but uncalled


Edson.Herman.14 [2:30 PM]:

Good play


Stephen White [2:30 PM]:

Lester has played a lot and will hit


Stephen White [2:29 PM]:

Catchable but pass too low


Stephen White [2:28 PM]:

From Boldin each and every week? So Boldin gets a lot of penalties now? Mannnnn stfu


James Dator [2:27 PM]:

@Ryan Van Bibber Offensive line play is the biggest difference. Defenders aren’t finishing sacks on both sides like they did in Week 10.


Secretary of Balloon Doggies [2:26 PM]:

That’s why you do the soccer reaction


Mark Ennis [2:26 PM]:

If you’re gonna flag Carolina for it you have to call it the other way


Matt Ufford [2:25 PM]:

So headbutting is a penalty when the Panthers do it, but not the Niners?


Stephen White [2:25 PM]:

Come on boldin, shouldve been flagged on head butt


Ryan Nanni [2:25 PM]:

WHERE IS THE HEADBUTT EQUALITY, SIR


Ryan Van Bibber [2:25 PM]:

@James Dator is this game like the last SF/CAR game? Seems like the offenses are moving the chains better, even if the points aren’t there


Stephen White [2:25 PM]:

Hardy got held on that play and still almost got a sack


Charlie Gebow [2:24 PM]:

@Justyjay Yeah, Roy Campanella gets no respect


Justyjay [2:24 PM]:

Crabtree is no way the best catcher in the game


Stephen White [2:24 PM]:

What a catch by Crab


JohnnyGentle [2:23 PM]:

Nice grab. Niners missed that this year.


Stephen White [2:23 PM]:

Kaep shouldve run there imo


James Dator [2:22 PM]:



Tattoos 6
Laptops 10

unxknownxorigin [2:20 PM]:

I miss watching boldin on the Cardinals


Stephen White [2:20 PM]:

Fastest half in recent memory


Stephen White [2:19 PM]:

More pressure and Boldin gets the first down


Stephen White [2:19 PM]:

Or….eff it go all in on read option. Gotta get kaep going


Stephen White [2:18 PM]:

Keeo feeding Boldin here if youre San Fran


James Dator [2:18 PM]:

Boldin is getting open a lot, Kaepernick finally finds him


Raymie Humbert [2:18 PM]:

That leap is gorgeous though. It’s like Ahmad is a pouncing lion or something.


Clay Wendler [2:17 PM]:


Raymie Humbert [2:16 PM]:

At the time she was at UVa, but now she’s at my university


Mark Ennis [2:15 PM]:


Ryan Nanni [2:15 PM]:

@Raymie Humbert I get that in reverse. Nobody expects me to be an elite athletic tal(throws out back)


Stephen White [2:13 PM]:

Cam took off from Shotgun and went jordan come fly with me over the Bucs a few weeks ago for a TD. Dont understand why they arent trying it today so far


Clay Wendler [2:13 PM]:


Raymie Humbert [2:13 PM]:

Every time I think of Ahmad Brooks I think of one of his teachers, who also taught me English last semester. Brooks apparently said a lot of people thought that since he was an athlete he wasn’t a good writer


Clay Wendler [2:13 PM]:


Charlie Gebow [2:12 PM]:

Mike Shula is really good at planning Goal Line defenses


Ryan Van Bibber [2:12 PM]:

well this is one helluva game


Rodger Sherman [2:12 PM]:

why wouldn’t they go for it?


JohnnyGentle [2:12 PM]:

Ugh, Panthers. Maybe try something out of the shotgun instead of running it up the middle?


Mark Ennis [2:12 PM]:

A replay of that Cam Newton flop.


Stephen White [2:12 PM]:

Brooks has been great at the goalline


Stephen White [2:11 PM]:

Wish they would shut the hell up with this injury stuff. Its win or go home, most QBs get lauded for putting it all on the line and doing whatever it takes to win


unxknownxorigin [2:11 PM]:

I just heard the NBA is fining Newton 5,000$ for the flop.


Charlie Gebow [2:11 PM]:

Cam Newton: Italian Soccer Player


Mark Ennis [2:11 PM]:

Hahahaha that Cam flop!


Oscar Gamble [2:11 PM]:

Can someone ask Andrew Luck if he’s forgotten that game yesterday, inquiring for Peter King


Ryan Nanni [2:11 PM]:

You gotta throw that flag because he didn’t stick the landing.


tmoseley20 [2:10 PM]:

lmao that flop was amazing


unxknownxorigin [2:10 PM]:

he aint polamalu!


Charlie Gebow [2:10 PM]:

#YOLO


JohnnyGentle [2:10 PM]:

LOL BROOKS


Stephen White [2:10 PM]:

Thought Cam should have made it a footrace outside


Stephen White [2:09 PM]:

Cam sweep left. 49ers run very similar play


Ryan Nanni [2:09 PM]:

2nd and goal from the one? Well, surely this can’t end poorly.


Justyjay [2:09 PM]:

@Raymie Humbert true, but you can’t say they weren’t hot the because they just came off a huge win over the Giants


Raymie Humbert [2:09 PM]:

@unxknownxorigin I believe so


unxknownxorigin [2:08 PM]:

@Raymie Humbert yes it was. after that loss they won every game except against the Saints right?


Justyjay [2:08 PM]:

@unxknownxorigin The Cardinals dominated them.


Raymie Humbert [2:08 PM]:

@unxknownxorigin That was a very different Panthers team


JohnnyGentle [2:08 PM]:

Cam’s spirals are as pretty as Brees’ were ugly yesterday.


Mark Ennis [2:08 PM]:

Joey Galloway said Warren Moon told him it’s your job to beat the corner and it’s my job to beat the safety. That’s what Cam just did on that seam route.


Stephen White [2:08 PM]:

49ers look like theyre on the ropes already on defense


James Dator [2:07 PM]:

That INT was a huge blemish, but I’ve never seen so many on-target touch passes from Newton


unxknownxorigin [2:07 PM]:

i was fortunate enough to see Cam and the Panthers play my Cardinals this season… even though the Cards beat them i was impressed


Stephen White [2:07 PM]:

Olsen up the seam


Ryan Van Bibber [2:07 PM]:

good gawd. Cam Newton is just putting on a show here today


Mark Ennis [2:07 PM]:

Oh what a throw.


JohnnyGentle [2:07 PM]:

B-eautiful throw.


unxknownxorigin [2:07 PM]:

turf souvenier


Mark Ennis [2:06 PM]:

Cam is so long and lanky he does that leaning fake while he runs and it completely fools people.


Stephen White [2:05 PM]:

Disrespectful rushing Cam with three.


Stephen White [2:05 PM]:

Another off target pass


Stephen White [2:04 PM]:

How exactly in the hell was he supposed to “protect himself” on that play?!


James Dator [2:04 PM]:

49ers making sure Newton takes big shots when he keeps it


Justyjay [2:04 PM]:

@Ryan Van Bibber yay cards!


Ryan Van Bibber [2:03 PM]:


Stephen White [2:02 PM]:

Id expect to see it in the redzone today too


Stephen White [2:02 PM]:

Panthers kept using that play at the end of the season but Cam never ever pulled it even when it was open


Rodger Sherman [2:02 PM]:

@James Dator it’s a gimmick tho it can never work


James Dator [2:01 PM]:

Option pitches in the NFL make me happy


Stephen White [2:01 PM]:

Goodness Tarrell Brown, dont just stand there lol


Ryan Van Bibber [2:01 PM]:

damn that was a pretty play


Mark Ennis [2:01 PM]:

LaFell lowered the boom!


Stephen White [2:00 PM]:

49ers arent getting much pressure with 4


Mark Ennis [1:59 PM]:


Stephen White [1:59 PM]:

@James Dator makes sense. Crab is the one guy you expect to beat man so maybe he is staying eith that read too long without actually pulling the trigger. He should be looking for Boldin imo because covered or not he makes plays against man


Stephen White [1:57 PM]:

49ers better figure out their blitz protection as well as their site adjust routes. Somebody has to beat man to man, get Vernon Davis on a go route or something


James Dator [1:57 PM]:

@sgw94 Melvin White is struggling, but it seems like Kaepernick is going to Crabtree first, missing the matchup then the blitz is getting there


LukeFrom2011 [1:57 PM]:

For a second there I thought that refs would defend Kaep like he was Tom Brady


Mark Ennis [1:57 PM]:


unxknownxorigin [1:56 PM]:

they got back there fast


Stephen White [1:56 PM]:

Pressure again. Thing is with all these blitzes the Panthers have to be going man at times. So who isnt winning?


unxknownxorigin [1:55 PM]:

@willmacklinshow i dont hate women or my wife.


Clay Wendler [1:55 PM]:


Ryan Van Bibber [1:54 PM]:


Stephen White [1:54 PM]:

Boldin with the back shoulder fade. Panthers sent pressure again


Justyjay [1:54 PM]:

I liked Anquan better in Arizona.


James Dator [1:54 PM]:

Great back shoulder to Boldin, on Melvin White once again.


willmacklinshow [1:53 PM]:

@unxknownxorigin Misogyny has no place in football.


JohnnyGentle [1:53 PM]:

@Clay Wendler Beautiful throw. Led him by 20 yards.


Matt Ufford [1:53 PM]:

Great job by Smith not putting his arms out until last possible moment. DB late getting his arms up bc of it.


Justyjay [1:53 PM]:

Riverboat should have onside kicked it


Clay Wendler [1:53 PM]:


Mark Ennis [1:52 PM]:


unxknownxorigin [1:51 PM]:

i missed the TD cuz my wife was yelling at me for something stupid


Justyjay [1:51 PM]:

@luketheduke03 or god is Cam Newton


Ryan Nanni [1:51 PM]:

2nd 13:40
SAN FRANCISCO 6
SO MUCH ICE YOU GONNA DOUBT GLOBAL WARMING 7

Mark Ennis [1:50 PM]:


LukeFrom2011 [1:50 PM]:

Can Newton is a god


tmoseley20 [1:50 PM]:

PERFECT PASS


Stephen White [1:50 PM]:

Helluva throw too


willmacklinshow [1:50 PM]:

Amazing throw.


Clay Wendler [1:50 PM]:


James Dator [1:50 PM]:

Steve Smith seems to be doing okay


Mark Ennis [1:50 PM]:

(and catch)


Ryan Van Bibber [1:50 PM]:

Mandatory: Ice Up, Son


Stephen White [1:50 PM]:

WOWWOWOWOWOWOW


cbenti60 [1:50 PM]:

So #Blessed


Mark Ennis [1:49 PM]:

My God that throw.


Justyjay [1:49 PM]:

TD


Charlie Gebow [1:49 PM]:

Dayum


Stephen White [1:49 PM]:

SMITTY


Justyjay [1:49 PM]:

I don’t know why I keep saying y’all


Justyjay [1:49 PM]:

So, are y’all Panther fans


Mark Ennis [1:49 PM]:

Man Ginn can run. Can’t do much else, but he can run.


Justyjay [1:49 PM]:

Woooo


Stephen White [1:49 PM]:

Ginn with the big return


Rodger Sherman [1:48 PM]:

this is why you go for it on fourth-and-1 at the one. even if you miss…


Ryan Nanni [1:48 PM]:

Punters gotta hate this shit.


Justyjay [1:48 PM]:

Hoh my ghohd


cbenti60 [1:48 PM]:

that was close to a TAINT


Stephen White [1:48 PM]:

Soooooo close to a pick six


Brett Stover [1:48 PM]:

@JohnnyGentle the call’s okay anyway


cbenti60 [1:48 PM]:

Oh wow


JohnnyGentle [1:47 PM]:

If the Panthers get a stop here, that call’s okay.


James Dator [1:46 PM]:

I don’t hate the play, but hate it against those linebackers in that formation


cbenti60 [1:46 PM]:

Sometimes when you are riverboat Ron, you get lost in the rapids.


Mark Ennis [1:46 PM]:

Man, somewhere Bianchi is writing his column on how Tebow would’ve punched that in.


Stephen White [1:46 PM]:

Helluva tackle by Brooks


Ryan Van Bibber [1:45 PM]:

why not give it to Tolbert there?


Charlie Gebow [1:45 PM]:

Always feels like there could be better playcalls than that in those situations


Stephen White [1:45 PM]:

Again WHY ARENT YOU DOING THE SUPERMAN PLAY OUT IF SHOTGUN?!?!


Ryan Van Bibber [1:45 PM]:

no dice


Justyjay [1:45 PM]:

Get a safety then, Panthers


Stephen White [1:45 PM]:

Nope


Mark Ennis [1:44 PM]:

From @WillBrinson


Ryan Nanni [1:44 PM]:

@cbenti60 He’s technically working off a prison sentence. Don’t ever go to Panama City, man.


Stephen White [1:44 PM]:

@Mark Ennis they always do that stuff against the Bucs and it always works


cbenti60 [1:44 PM]:

@Mark Ennis The ol’ diamond formation


Matt Ufford [1:44 PM]:

@Mark Ennis JUMP PASS


Justyjay [1:44 PM]:

Don’t rock the boat


Mark Ennis [1:44 PM]:

Carolina could use the goal line stuff Florida and Denver used with Tebow. Either bunched up power stuff and let Cam take the snap from shotgun and power it in.


James Dator [1:43 PM]:


Ryan Van Bibber [1:43 PM]:

perfect timing, a whole commercial break to talk about Riverboat Ron


willmacklinshow [1:43 PM]:

Fake FG please.


Ryan Van Bibber [1:42 PM]:

@Mark Ennis good point. thanks!


cbenti60 [1:42 PM]:

Wait, how the hell does Ufford not have a featured contributor star?


Justyjay [1:42 PM]:

Jk


Justyjay [1:42 PM]:

Go for it


tmoseley20 [1:42 PM]:

Definitely go for it


Stephen White [1:42 PM]:

Big stop by the 49ers. How fast did that quarter fly by?


Brett Stover [1:42 PM]:

GO FOR IT PLEASE


Charlie Gebow [1:42 PM]:

C’MON RIVERBOAT DO IT


Ryan Nanni [1:42 PM]:

(blows riverboat horn)


Matt Ufford [1:42 PM]:

GO FOR IT


Mark Ennis [1:42 PM]:


James Dator [1:42 PM]:

Tolbert or Cam, who’s it going to be here?


Stephen White [1:41 PM]:

Why didnt they run that from shotgun?!


Mark Ennis [1:41 PM]:

@Ryan Van Bibber they have thing built into their offenses that play off their bread and butter stuff that punishes overpursuit. And in lots of different ways.


Stephen White [1:41 PM]:

Wow Willis almost got knocked out on that tackle attempt


Ryan Nanni [1:40 PM]:

Cam Newton/Marshawn Lynch backfield. That’s how we’ll beat the Russians once and for all.


Ryan Van Bibber [1:40 PM]:

@Mark Ennis explain


Stephen White [1:40 PM]:

Cam with the read option run for another first down.


Justyjay [1:40 PM]:

@Ryan Van Bibber I hear he cooks the best speed


Mark Ennis [1:40 PM]:

Both of these offenses really do nice things with constraint plays. Really hard on defenses.


Ryan Van Bibber [1:39 PM]:

there’s that Tedd Ginn Sppeedd


Stephen White [1:39 PM]:

Ginn with the swing pass for a first down


James Dator [1:38 PM]:

@Mark Ennis He keeps my NFL dream alive


Mark Ennis [1:38 PM]:

I’m not convinced that throw was intended for Smith,.


Stephen White [1:38 PM]:

Great protection but why are two guys in the same area again?


Mark Ennis [1:37 PM]:

I love that Tolbert looks like a fan who won a contest that allows him to dress for an actual game.


Charlie Gebow [1:37 PM]:

This is a SmashMouth football game… in the sense that it was really popular 15 years ago, but nobody canquite tell you why.


Justyjay [1:35 PM]:

And that’s what happened


Stephen White [1:35 PM]:


Justyjay [1:35 PM]:

@Run Home Jack “OK” Friendship headbutt


eightyseven [1:35 PM]:

so early


James Dator [1:35 PM]:

A lot of supercilious “act like you’ve been there before” chatter, but the Panthers haven’t, barely any of them have — which is why they’re more emotion than anything right now


Cyd Zeigler [1:35 PM]:

All of this post-play stuff from the Panthers came from somebody. Wonder what was said.


Ryan Nanni [1:34 PM]:

@Mark Ennis “LET’S BE FRIENDS FOREVER


Justyjay [1:34 PM]:

I hate teams with good kickers.


Mark Ennis [1:34 PM]:

Maaaan Carolina is doing a TON of talking.


Stephen White [1:34 PM]:

Bad pass by Kaep on 3rd down. Crab was open


Stephen White [1:33 PM]:

Come on Patton, dont be the nail lol


Clay Wendler [1:33 PM]:


Justyjay [1:33 PM]:

Me thinks Crabtree is overrated


Justyjay [1:32 PM]:

@Rodger Sherman you should play basketball


Stephen White [1:32 PM]:

Harbaugh getting cute again


Mark Ennis [1:32 PM]:

Hasn’t been the smartest first quarter for the Carolina defense. You don’t have to do this stuff.


Stephen White [1:32 PM]:

Now that was a weak call. Panthers gotta calm down though


Justyjay [1:32 PM]:

Not smart


Stephen White [1:31 PM]:

That should open things up for Gore a little as the game goes on


Rodger Sherman [1:31 PM]:

@Justyjay I jumped up and hit a box and this came out and now i’m 13 feet tall


Stephen White [1:31 PM]:

Kaep with the pull on read option


Ryan Van Bibber [1:31 PM]:

@Justyjay featured contributors, our regular crew here


cbenti60 [1:31 PM]:

@Clefo Well…. crap


Clay Wendler [1:31 PM]:


cbenti60 [1:31 PM]:

@Justyjay They’re the guys who write and work here


Stephen White [1:30 PM]:

Or blackburn whatever lol


Charlie Gebow [1:30 PM]:

@cbenti60 But he was at Florida first, which seems to be a counter-blessing


Stephen White [1:30 PM]:

But penalty on Kuechly


Ryan Van Bibber [1:30 PM]:


Justyjay [1:30 PM]:

Why do y’all have stars next to your names


Stephen White [1:30 PM]:

Drop


cbenti60 [1:29 PM]:

Lest us not forget that Cammy Cam went to Auburn… therefore, so #Blessed


Stephen White [1:29 PM]:

Panther blitzing more than im used to seeing them do it


James Dator [1:28 PM]:

Horrible throw, but also a question why LaFell and Ginn were in the same place


Mark Ennis [1:27 PM]:

Newton had a little press, threw that entirely on one leg.


Stephen White [1:27 PM]:

Bad pass behind Lafell


Justyjay [1:27 PM]:

I jinxed it


Mark Ennis [1:27 PM]:

Man that’s just fantastic awareness.


Oh No Romo [1:27 PM]:

Yikes, bad tip


Stephen White [1:26 PM]:

Tip drill


Ryan Nanni [1:26 PM]:

@Justyjay Well now look what you did.


Stephen White [1:26 PM]:

Pass blocking looking good so far for Carolina


Justyjay [1:25 PM]:

Newton > Kaepernick


Ryan Van Bibber [1:25 PM]:

20140105_mjr_su5_155

49ers FB Tukuafu injured vs. Panthers

The big fullback had a nasty-looking injury on the game’s opening possession.


James Dator [1:25 PM]:

Look for a Mike Tolbert run off tackle, if I had to guess


Clay Wendler [1:25 PM]:

SIX YARDS STEVE, YEAH


Stephen White [1:25 PM]:

Smitty already getting it going lol


Ryan Nanni [1:24 PM]:

@James Dator (calls dive for Warrick Dunn) (calls off tackle for Mike Alstott)


James Dator [1:23 PM]:

It’s Mike Shula’s time to shine!


Stephen White [1:22 PM]:

Ginn could very easily be the hero or the goat today. The Panthers will get chances to go up top to him today several times. But he has also been known to shrink in pressure situations at times. If he makes a few of those catches….


Ryan Nanni [1:19 PM]:

@unxknownxorigin I mean, he won Rookie of the Year, so.


Stephen White [1:18 PM]:

True key was Johnson coming unblocked forcing Kaep up into Kuechly


James Dator [1:18 PM]:

Kuechly’s biggest improvement this year has been in pass rushing.


Mark Ennis [1:18 PM]:

They’ve had unblocked rushers on several blitzes but that one finally got home.


Ryan Van Bibber [1:18 PM]:

the Panthers LBs deserve a collective DPOY award


unxknownxorigin [1:18 PM]:

was keuchly this good last year and no one knew abotu him?


Ryan Nanni [1:18 PM]:

Put Bill Romanowski in the 2014 NFL and he’ll rack up enough fines to become the world’s 27th largest country by GDP.


Charlie Gebow [1:18 PM]:

Colin Sackedernick?


Stephen White [1:18 PM]:

Brought pressure again, wide man unblocked


Rodger Sherman [1:17 PM]:

cam newton hasn’t even thrown a TD yet. what a FRAUD


unxknownxorigin [1:17 PM]:

Gore hasnt done anythign since week 16


Mark Ennis [1:17 PM]:

Not a good decision nor was it a good throw.


Stephen White [1:16 PM]:

Ball had hit the ground before he hit him


Stephen White [1:15 PM]:

Why make that hit 21?!


James Dator [1:15 PM]:

That’s a ridiculous flag


Stephen White [1:15 PM]:

Flag?!


Clay Wendler [1:14 PM]:


James Dator [1:14 PM]:

I have no clue how, but good news


Rodger Sherman [1:13 PM]:

this is ufford’s fault. he predicted death: http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2014/1/8/5288632/nfl-playoffs-49ers-panthers-divisonal-round-preview/in/5047677


James Dator [1:13 PM]:

Captain Munnerlyn did the same thing on both plays, dragging down with his full body weight. Sidelined Crabtree now that injury to the fullback


Rodger Sherman [1:12 PM]:

maaaaaaaaaaaaaaan why’d they have to do the fullback like that


Stephen White [1:12 PM]:

Damn dont show that!


Mark Ennis [1:12 PM]:

That looked bad. His foot planted in the ground as he was going down. Ouch.


Stephen White [1:12 PM]:

He went down real bad.


James Dator [1:11 PM]:

Greg Hardy at the center of pushing and shoving, because of course he is


Stephen White [1:11 PM]:

@Mark Ennis I think by design but he really affected the throw


Ryan Nanni [1:11 PM]:

ADVANCED STAT: The 49ers are on pace to have the ball for the entire game. This would cause problems for the Carolina offense.


James Dator [1:11 PM]:

Smart play by Kaepernick to drop it off instead of trying to run it in


Stephen White [1:11 PM]:

Kaep draws up the defender then hits Gore for the first. He usually puts too much mustard on those


Mark Ennis [1:10 PM]:

@sgw94 did SF let that rusher come unblocked by design since it was a swing out or did someone just mess up?


Stephen White [1:10 PM]:

Panthers brought pressure


Ryan Van Bibber [1:09 PM]:

Quinton Patton took over as unofficial MC at the Rookie Premiere last May … and he owned it too


Stephen White [1:09 PM]:

Pistol read option early


Dan Rubenstein [1:09 PM]:

Rooting Quinton Patton, easily the strangest, funniest guy at our NFLPA event in may


James Dator [1:09 PM]:

That’s the matchup 49ers should exploit all day: Whoever on UDFA Melvin White.


Stephen White [1:08 PM]:

What a bullet to Patton for the first


Ryan Van Bibber [1:08 PM]:

damn, now Crabtree hurting


Mark Ennis [1:08 PM]:

Really curious if the losing QB today has a legion of writers that apologize for his play tomorrow like we had with Andrew Luck.


Stephen White [1:08 PM]:

Panthers are playing angry so far on defense.


Stephen White [1:07 PM]:

If your knee is messed up you cant play DLine. Just is what it is.


James Dator [1:07 PM]:

Johnson looks in a lot of pain. He didn’t make the pro bowl, but is Carolina’s best pass rusher


LukeFrom2011 [1:07 PM]:

And he’s down


Ryan Van Bibber [1:07 PM]:

Oh shit, not Charles JOhnson


Stephen White [1:07 PM]:

But is now hurt smh


Stephen White [1:07 PM]:

Well damn, Johnson laid the wood to him


Jon Bois [1:07 PM]:

should be interesting to see what the results of the games will be, how long they will last, and what sorts of different uniforms will be worn


Ryan Nanni [1:06 PM]:

@Clay Wendler Andrew Luck?


Clay Wendler [1:06 PM]:


Ryan Nanni [1:06 PM]:

@druben


Dan Rubenstein [1:05 PM]:

@Run Home Jack met ufford to give him the mic for lookit video, picked up morgan’s for lil bro and myself — brisket tacos for me, chopped beef sand for him, also grabbed him a gorilla coffee shake so he could enjoy his niners


James Dator [1:04 PM]:

Greg Hardy went crazy coming out of the tunnel and bumped into a band member, so there’s that


Ryan Nanni [1:04 PM]:

@druben what’s for lunch today, dan?


Clay Wendler [1:03 PM]:

nobody likes you peter


Dan Rubenstein [1:03 PM]:

sup bruhs


Ryan Van Bibber [1:02 PM]:


Ryan Van Bibber [1:02 PM]:

In case you’re undecided …


Clay Wendler [1:01 PM]:

hope this guy plays taps at the end of the game


James Dator [1:01 PM]:

Trumpet anthems rule


Oh No Romo [1:01 PM]:

Where’s the ice?


Ryan Nanni [1:00 PM]:

PRICE UP, SON


James Dator [12:59 PM]:

@Ryan Van Bibber I’d prefer it to the 2 minutes of “cousin love and mason jars” FOX did


Stephen White [12:59 PM]:

So many narratives!!!


Ryan Van Bibber [12:58 PM]:

You guys ready for four hours+ of “Ice Up” jokes that will never get old?


Ryan Nanni [12:58 PM]:

ICE UP JAMES


James Dator [12:57 PM]:

I’M SO SCARED
