    With no J.Long, Brockers, Saffold, Laurinaitis, Jenkins, etc.... did you expect this team to be lights out? With Roberson starting at CB? With Ray Ray starting at LB? With a brand new scheme that is as basic and plain as can be right now?

    Look back in history the 16-0 patriots went 0-4 in preseason. They didn't look all that great either. And the 0-16 Lions went 4-0 in preseason and looked pretty solid.

    While many of you will disagree, I remain unconcerned. I've seen worse..

    And you too may be unfamiliar with the concept of this thread. Anyone is free to say whatever they want, make it seem as bad as they want to make it sound, and it's fair game in this thread. You're permitted to say, "Bradford is the worst thing to happen to this team, and Janoris Jenkins is the biggest bust I've seen outside of those 4 dudes on Mt Rushmore.

    And it's fine.

    Again. As long as it's in here.

    I do like the no quoting rule proposed by @Rams and Gators too. That should be mandatory.

    That's fair game too - right? Heh heh.

    I haven't been able to watch the game yet so I'm just here to be the village idiot. Is it working? :LOL:

    Nothing to vent! I'm happy with the young CBs and how they played. McDonald is going to be a very good safety.

    No, I am very familiar with the concept of this thread. But I also have an opinion when someone says something like "if you aren't concerned, you're in for a rude awakening" or "Keep thinking these games are meaningless if you want to be an ostrich"... at that point, I have the right to respond because he is bringing us members into it.

    Not really, man. I've known Faceplant since the beginning of this board and I know when he's venting. Have you seen him take shots at anyone outside of this thread ... ever? Because I haven't. Again, the purpose of this thread is to say whatever you want without persecution. If people are going to be offended by vents, then it's probably not a good idea to venture in. I'm sure you've said some things in the comfort of your own living room that you wouldn't say on this board. Think of it that way if it helps.

    To clarify, Person is in his 4th year. I thought he has played pretty well in the first two games. He definitely has shown versatility. Hooey, on the other hand, may have 2 games left in a RAMS uniform.

    Whoo! Gotta respect a good man who carries a big stick.

    He's right, X. The guy involved us all.

    I flamed harder than the Man's post, but he opened the door. Don't blame me for blowing it open and burning the house down, metaphorically speaking.

    I'm doing my best to explain the unique nature of this thread, but it's not working apparently. So let me reiterate. If you're going to be offended by rants or vents or explosive reactions, then don't read the thread. It's not a thread for debating or trying to make someone see the err of their ways. ESPECIALLY when they're in that frame of mind already. We're trying to offer a public service to mitigate the damage that could be caused on the board after a stinging loss. If someone has a better suggestion, then I'm sure the mods would love to hear it. But this isn't broke, so I'm not sure why there's an open repair order.

    Sorry, never heard of Person before. Just figured he was a rookie. My bad.

    It's a beautul concept, really. It's meant to cool off the board instead of heat it up. Usually that's the case, but preseason allows much more interpretation than the regular season. It's all good.

    I'm awaiting the "rude awakening." That's bold...

    I'm venting because the 49ers are trying to hog our suckiness and steal the limelight by being terrible on both offense and defense. Surely we are the worst team in the NFC West after 2 preseason games. Right? How dare they? :mad:

    Manning completed 12-of-14 passes for 102 yards and the touchdown to Thomas on the first two Denver possessions, with the only real blemish coming at the end of the first drive when an awkward Manning scramble and incompletion forced them to settle for a field goal in the red zone. Otherwise, it was a very easy and very familiar 127 yards on 21 plays for the defending AFC champs.

    The 49ers also moved the ball on their first two possessions, picking up five first downs, but both drives stalled before they got deep into Broncos territory. Colin Kaepernick left the game having completed 5-of-9 passes for 39 yards in a performance that saw Kaepernick check down to second or third options after finding nothing open down the field.
