    Agreed, but they are playing QB roulette and currently starting Charlie Frye, and they just lost to Cleveland. So I'd hope we can count on that. Now, if they don't win that game, THEN they don't "deserve it".

    What I don't gather is why that bitching is not directed where it deserves to be directed. The players on the field that did the stupid things. Harbs can't go out on the field and hold their hands through each play. You want him to bench Suggs, Washington, Walker, Cousins, Mason and every other player that makes a mistake? He's fielding the best team he has, he expects them to go out and do their job. They boned it. They deserve the blame.

    Pint and a whiskey and you've got a deal!

    A kilt costs about $1,000!

    What else can you say? You get it and see what happens.
    That's the problem. It's not the talent that's the problem. We shoot ourselves in the foot, over and over and over again. Ray knocking the crap out of Chad 85. Haushka costing us two games. Clayton dropping a fourth down pass against the Pats. Mason dropping an easy TD against the Squeelers that would've won us the game.

    Outside of the Packers game, I don't think any team has beaten us on the field. We've beaten ourselves.

    No one is going to stop pulling for them. But it's a stretch to think this team is going to turn on some switch and become dominant once the playoffs start.

    And it's my right to feel like we are not deservant of backing into the playoffs without being told to shove it up my ass by someone who doesn't bother to participate in the thread the entire day and then slides in to attack me.

    I'm tired of watching this team implode. TIRED of it. Aren't you?

    I'll take benching Walker and Cousins. Some mistakes I can forgive. Mason's drop is one of them because he makes so many plays to make up for it. Walker, a CB, almost single handidly lost us the game today. Cousins is a back-up tackle so we're thin at the posistion anyway.

    How many TO have we blown this year because the offense wasn't ready? That's coaching. That's getting your guys ready to play. The not calling a TO when we had the Squeelers backed up at the end of the first half. That's a bad decision. Not because of what happened but because it wasted time we could possibly have used if we had held them.

    Absolutely... costs me like $20 just to watch them implode... I'm thinking about asking Boscotti for a refund for Directv NFL package. But damn it, when this team is hot, they are shit hot!!!

    FUCK the NFL!! i have never seen a sports franchise receive the kind of generosity that they receive on outcome changing plays through out the years. coincidentally they are the nfl machines best earners. dont 4 sec forget that this is sports ENTERTAINMENT. & i dont want 2 here this we beat us shit, save the positive outlook shit for the athletes, thoughs are tactical penalties in a game that OC plays are like jewels that may only have value once.

    Hell, I'm proud of them when they lose if they at least lose like professionals. What happened after Mason dropped that TD pass was not a professional football team.

    We've all seen "The Replacements" right? When Falco talks about quicksand is exactly what happens to this team. One thing goes bad and it snowballs to the point it becomes laughable.

    Washington, and Mason don't deserve to be benched because they have a track record of making catches. Mason's catch was a killer, but that doesn't mean the offense couldn't have shook it off and scored on another play.

    Cousins was crapping the field ALL DAY. Frank Walker is Frank Walker. I thought Chris Carr was supposed to be the starter today. Looks like he was shoved back into the nickel, which is what I THOUGHT we signed Corey Ivy for over he-who-shall-not-be-named.

    But Harbaugh and Cameron deserves some of this large blame sandwich too. Not calling that timeout at the end of the half. Cameron going vanilla.

    And I'm not 100% sure Harbaugh fielded "the best" team he could, because Mark Clayton was back in the #2 WR slot disappearing into coverage like he normally does, and Demetrius Williams was taken back out of the offense, save for a couple of snaps.
