  • I just goggle-stumbled onto this. Never heard of Mike Tanier before, but I like his writing -- there's a little bit of an edge to his humor.

    He makes a couple of Seahawk-empathetic jokes in this weeks column/diatribe, it's worth reading if you have a few spare minutes.
    49ers webzone: Win or lose, i hope you injure Sherman. Like a serious career ending injury. I don't want him to get paid.
    49ers webzone: noise should not be the overwhelming reason a team is favored. they need to spray noise-damping foam onto the ceiling of that place.

  • I like his columns. Did you stumble upon this from Football Outsiders? His stuff is regularly linked to from their site.

  • Tanier has written for FO for a while now, and is truly talented. His piece about being at the SB last year is one of the best pieces of writing I have ever read.

    That was just enjoyable.

  • 49ers Education: A balanced offense can move the ball against the 49ers’ defense. The Rams reaffirmed what the Vikings taught us in Week Three. When the 49ers can focus on rushing the passer, they have the best defense in the NFL, hands down. But combine effective running with some spread-the-wealth passing, then play with the lead, and you can take the 49ers out of their game plan on both sides of the ball.


    we are going to kick the niners arses with a fully powered Rusell wilson.
    We are the 2014 Superbowl champions and it can never, ever be taken away.
    Greatest defense in NFL history.

    The Bears could take them down...the Saints could take them down...the Rams in St Louie could take them down...the Hawks could take them down...Patriots could take them down... :49ersmall: I see at least three losses in there...

    The Seahawks pummeled the Jets 28-7, and they were gracious enough to sew things up in less than three hours so we could focus our attention on the 49ers-Rams game....So the Seahawks performed a public service by advancing us quickly to the press conference, where Rex Ryan affirmed Mark Sanchez as the starter and allowed us to go about our business. :lol:

  • My new favorite writer, ever?

    We are now obligated by law to rehearse the obligatory talking points about inconsistent officiating, the NFL’s inability to adhere to its own standards, and the blood-freezing ramifications of such a call being missed in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl against any team but the Seahawks.

  • Premature spikulation. Trindon Holliday returned a punt 76 yards for a touchdown against the Panthers. Or, if you watched carefully, he returned the punt 75 yards, flipped the ball into the air to celebrate an apparent touchdown at the one-yard line, and let the ball roll through the back of the end zone for what should have been a touchback. The play was not reviewed, despite the fact that all touchdowns are technically supposed to be reviewed.

    yeah, this.
