    Starks is a disaster zone, its sad to watch

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      Retirement is in his future.

      • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

        or the steelers sign him again

  • FitzWilly

    starks is playing like a spoiled child who did get his way
    cut him at 1/2 time before Stan gets here

  • kris

    Fozzy, addae, and green stars of the game so far. All three should be on the roster.

    • Daryl Peek

      Fozzy

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      Harrell ain’t to bad… just a little slow.

  • Daryl Peek

    Tackling, tackling, TACKLING!!! WTF

  • Sergio Quintero

    Well I thought Starks & Meachem were playing their last games as chargers, I heaven’t seen anything to change that

  • Cgoodness13

    What’s with the lights?

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      One word.. Qualcom… Qualcom is what’s up with the lights.

  • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

    Well that was lack-luster, outside of the players I knew were good already. Starks is by far the biggest disappointment of the offseason.

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      He can’t even hold up against backups.

  • Thomas87

    Not one for ripping on meach but man cut him already!!!!

  • JoseSD

    That doctor has some badass socks!!

  • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

    Can we just leave a trail of Reeses Pieces out to Max Stark’s car, and tape his pink slip to the steering wheel?

    • FitzWilly

      lmao nice

  • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

    It’s the Superbowl all over again for the Niners… lights OUT!!!! ; )

  • JoseSD

    Was that Goodman’s first catch since he left the ball on the turf against the patriots3 years ago

  • Daryl Peek

    Sorenson just looks poised back there

  • FitzWilly

    luvin stan even more :)
    so-long Badman

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      badman almost died!! that was a killer hit

      • FitzWilly

        yeah I felt that one

  • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

    The Stromin Mormon!

    • FitzWilly

      amen :)

  • JoseSD

    Sweet special teams tackle by Addae, but does he know he can use his arms to tackle? He’s looking like Bigby 2.0

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      They’re both short.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      YUP

  • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

    At least he cleaned up his own mess : /

  • FitzWilly

    maybe stan can teach the defense to taclke

  • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

    Why does Fouts always seem to know the name of the 49er that made a play immediately, but not the Charger who defends it? He finally gets around to it sometimes.. but, it’s like he is going down the list.. and sometimes just gives up on who the player is. I keep having to rewind, and pause. Maybe he’s just old, with bad eyesight, and REALLY up to speed on the 49er backups.

    • FitzWilly

      it’s called sometimers

  • FitzWilly

    where’s Herr Keiser tonight?

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      no clue… didn’t even notice him on the field

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      but… Frank Beltre has been making plays still

      • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

        Honestly.. neither one is that good.. just sayin.

  • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

    Take a picture.. Goodman made it to the 21. C-Ya!!!!!

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      hahahah

  • navw21

    and goodman trips over the 15 yard line. Nicely done

  • FitzWilly

    i think fouts is drunk tonight

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      Him and Billy Ray suck. I would rather have Hank in there… and Hank aint that great.

      • FitzWilly

        couldn’t agree more

    • RZ

      I’d be drinking too having to watch this mess!

      • FitzWilly

        tru dat

  • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

    And THAT is why it scares the fuck out of me that Scifres is in there with these crappy ass players.. sign a slump-buster punter for next year assholes!!!!!

    • boltingindiego

      dude you jinxed it

      • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

        No.. I just know when things aren’t looking safe for Scifres.

        • boltingindiego

          im kiddin man but you put it out there.

          • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

            LOL.. perhaps I did.

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      So frickin’ stupid… I KNEW that was going to happen. I saw it coming a mile away. He’s one of our best players… get ANYBODY else to punt in game 4!!!!

  • boltingindiego

    2nd block punt allowed my addae. hes not a blocker should be a gunner.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      welp

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      Sorry… put Addae on the P.S., but he isn’t a 53 man roster guy.. trust it. Not this year anyway. People need to give up on that already.

      • boltingindiego

        only way he will make it this year will be a gunner and kick offs. if not its practice for him this year.

  • FitzWilly

    did billy ray just say the c-work by mistake?

    • navw21

      yep

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      TWICE… I need a YouTube of that!

      • FitzWilly

        didn’t know Mike Hunt had a brother who was a punter

  • Mark G

    It’s after midnight here in South Carolina. Although you guys are more entertaining than this game, I am leaving the 4th qtr for you and drunk Fouts!

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      Nite.

  • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

    I wanna see some hurry up now. Just to see if Sorensen can do it.

  • RZ

    Keep Fozzy out,he doesn’t need to be in there anymore…

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      I wish I could up this a hundred times.

      • arnie

        hill?

        • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

          I was thinking take a knee.. lol.

  • Adam

    This is just painful

    • Rob Base

      Not even watching anymore. Too nerve wrecking

  • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

    Just thank your lucky stars that these aren’t the guys who are making the squad. LOL.

  • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

    I wonder if McClain is alright?

  • RZ

    OMG!!!

  • JoseSD

    Im having flashbacks of last season. The first 3 preseason games give you optimism than in game 4 the 49ers smack you in the mouth foreshadowing a very disappointing season

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      I dunno.. I kinda knew this was coming. There are technically only a few roster spots even open. When they put in the backups right out of the gate, I figured this was going to be a bloodbath. My only complaint is not having a back up punter for Scifres.. that’s just stupid in game 4, with all these below average players. These are a bunch of UDFA’s. I know TT has his eye on the waiver wire. I wouldn’t even put many of these guys on our practice squad, realistically. I wonder if TT is watching the 49ers more than his own squad for talent.. hahaha.

  • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

    Sad that the crowd is cheering when SF scores.

  • navw21

    Addae is not ready for the 53 man roster. Put him on the P.S. until he learns how to tackle correctly.

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      Thank you!!! Neither is Beltre.

      • arnie

        and that is why you Wrap, instead of hitting

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      just TERRIBLE!!!! that was awful!

  • FitzWilly

    ROTFLMAO
    That should make the cuts alot easier
    bye bye adae

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      C-Ya shorty ;)

  • Daryl Peek

    Cuts are gonna be real easy! This was a horrible effort in all three phases.

  • arnie

    if you’re trying to make the roster, don’t make it easy for the coaches.

  • arnie

    Troutman down

  • RZ

    Just stop the game already.

  • FitzWilly

    they should have a mercy rule in the nfl

    • arnie

      LOL

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      They do.. it is called taking a knee… unless you are playing Tampa Bay.. Schiano will rush the center.

  • arnie

    at this point if you get hurt, you will be cut.

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      Sad but true.. dun dun dun.. dun dun dun dun.. dun dun dun (Metallica)

  • arnie

    Now that is a tackle adde.

  • FitzWilly

    don’t watch this punt PT

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      I covered my eyes…

  • RZ

    75 DOWN TO 53….No Problem.

  • Daryl Peek

    This is disgusting. They’ve completely laid down

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      Almost nobody deserves a job here… all on the street.. for life, most likely. Nobody is going to be scavenging our P.S.

      • Daryl Peek

        Sad but true story

        • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

          I don’t know how sad it is.. none of the backups really tried all game.

      • 1961 Fan

        I thought you said this was a great team, or at least contenders! Now we see how my Bolts team stacks up against a quality team.

        41-6, I am still sold on Sorensen even though he threw a bobbled pick, he was the DUDE that leg tackled the interceptor. Sorensen can show some defense to a lack luster group of defenders. The special teams sucks, and I am afraid to watch the Texans game for fear we will be humiliated on national T. V.

        • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

          When did I say this was a great team? Hahahaha… Nice try though.
          I still think our starters.. which very few played last night.. are contenders. I have never been as short-sighted as to say that a bunch of UDFA’s are going to be “kick ass depth”. In fact, I knew that we might find a couple good players, but it would come down to signing players from other squads after cuts were made. It’s been clear from the beginning that our depth was poor… since before draft day, even. I will tell you this.. I like him a lot… but, Sorensen didn’t look like he will be replacing Rivers any time soon last night.

          And does it matter if we get embarrassed out of the gate by a really good playoff team? There are so many new pieces here, that I almost expect it. It would be embarrassing if nothing had been done to change the team for the better since last season. I don’t think we will hit our stride in game one, against a stacked powerhouse team. I think everyone knows this is going to take time. In fact, I am more on your level with my season prediction. 8-8 would be a success to me. I hope we do better of course. It’s not like everyone here is completely irrational, and you are the lone ranger who thinks this team needs work. We all know the team needs work… duh!!!

  • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

    Troutman gets cut.

  • FitzWilly

    too bad he can only cut 22 lol

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      Hahaha

  • Daryl Peek

    Concussion for Meachem. *Easy button blank stare*
