2014-Jun-20 - bought them in bulk

49ers can't blame loss on Ahmad Brooks penalty

Nov 18:Grading the 49ers in their loss to the New Orleans SaintsNov 17:By the numbers: San Francisco 49ers vs. New Orleans SaintsPurdy: Penalty costs 49ers in loss to Saints49ers offense struggles again in loss to SaintsPurdy: More disappointment for 49ers in New Orleans49ers lose to Saints 23 20 on field goal as time expiresVernon Davis, Eric Reid active for 49ersYou're going to be tempted to blame the 49ers' 23 20 road loss to the New Orleans Saints on the momentum changing personal foul call on Ahmad Brooks. Resist the urge. That's just the illusion talking.It may try to soothe you with hopes of Michael Crabtree coming back, of Colin Kaepernick returning to sensational, and everything will be fine. The illusion is tricky that way.Suck it up and face reality: These 49ers are NOT who you thought they were.If you still think this team is a contender in the NFC West, the illusion has you captured. If you're still mentioning San Francisco and Super Bowl in the same sentence, blow your nose and check for pixie dust.San Francisco 49ers outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks (55) runs back an interception in the second half of an NFL football game against the New Orleans Saints in New Orleans, Sunday, Nov. 17, 2013. (AP Photo/Bill Haber)Bill HaberThe 49ers, losers of two straight for the second time this season, are 6 4 after Sunday's loss at New Orleans. Formerly a popular pick as the league's best team, Jim Harbaugh's crew is stuck in the mire of NFL mediocrity with the likes of Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia and Arizona.Catching Seattle for the division title is pretty much a pipe dream. Home field advantage in the first round is looking like a reach. At this point, talk of playoffs requires faith.Who's got it better than us? Um, half the NFC."Our ultimate goal is to find a way to get into the playoffs," All Pro linebacker Patrick Willis said. "The last two years we've been able to control our own destiny. I think It's a little bit harder now. If we just stay together and continue to fight, we have the team to get in there. That's the key, to get in. Once you get in, anything is possible."That's where the 49ers are, hoping to get in and get hot. The difference between 7 3 and 6 4 is the difference between confidence and panic.Confidence was almost on the 49ers' side. Up a field goal late in the fourth quarter, Brooks came with a clutch third and 2 sack on Saints quarterback Drew Brees, his jarring hit popping the ball loose. Willis recovered the fumble, which would have given the 49ers the ball.But Brooks was flagged for a personal foul, his hit deemed too close to the head and neck area. The forced turnover was erased, leaving the 49ers an easy target for their second disappointing loss at The Superdome in 2013, the other being the Super Bowl."That was the game, basically," Brooks said. "At the last second, (Brees) ducked his head."That illusion again.The 49ers didn't lose this game because of that play. They seemed discombobulated most of the game. They committed enough slapstick plays in the fourth quarter alone to make Jim Carrey giggle.Running back Frank Gore, whose name is sacred among scarlet and gold faithful for all the times he's come through, dropped a gimmie though untouched and no one between him and the end zone.The 49ers had it first down in the red zone after the second critical reception of the drive for Anquan Boldin. But for some reason, they never looked his way again and wound up settling for a field goal.There's more. Jon Baldwin had no idea where the ball was on a critical third down play, leading to an incompletion and a punt. Kassim Osgood had no idea a fair catch was called, giving Brees a 15 yard head start on the game winning drive. The offensive line blew assignments twice on the 49ers' last drive (or maybe they thought it was a good time to run the ball and eat clock).Harbaugh wasted his two challenges in the first half. The noise and poor play management had Kaepernick burning timeouts like he bought them in bulk from Costco.The 49ers are just a mess right now. They are not the juggernaut of physicality who bullied teams into submission. They're no longer explosive on offense, their double threat quarterback reduced to a dink and dunker. They're scarcely even disciplined.In that respect, maybe Sunday's loss is a good thing. Maybe it prompts a trip back to the drawing board or stirs up some urgency from a team playing like the light bulb will go off any second.Certainly, a turnaround is possible. The schedule is favorable even if you count the Seahawks rematch as a loss. Crabtree's return figures to help unshackle the 49ers offense. And the defense, while not as dominant as the recent past, is holding its own.But that's what it would be a turnaround. Because these 49ers are not a Super Bowl contender. Don't believe the illusion.

2014-Jun-20 - players for a team

5 reasons the Cleveland Browns will make the 2013 NFL playoffs

BEREA, Ohio The Browns, who started the season 0 2 and already have played three quarterbacks, will make the playoffs.

Don adjust your computer screen or my meds. I also proffering five reasons the Browns won make the playoffs on another post.

But after losing their first two games and trading Trent Richardson to Indianapolis, who envisioned the playoffs as a legitimate bye week topic? Some thought they had a better chance to compete with Jacksonville for the No. 1 draft pick than to battle Cincinnati for the top spot in the division.

If the Browns are trying to tank, as some suggested after management moved Richardson, they doing a lousy job of it. Remember Mike Holmgren tirade after that trade? Guess he won be calling Joe Banner for playoff tickets.

Here are five reasons why the Browns will be part of the postseason:Jason Campbell is providing steady leadership at the most important position on the field. He the first Brown since Derek Anderson to have back to back 100 plus passer ratings in the games against Kansas City and Baltimore.

His three touchdown performance vs. the Ravens, while playing with bruised ribs, was impressive. So was engineering the 15 play, 6:30 field goal drive at game end. You can sense the confidence the team has in the veteran. It a trust factor that was lacking in Brandon Weeden.

2. Getting defensive

Except for a dreadful six quarter stretch in the Green Bay and Kansas City games, the defense has played well. The unit ranks fourth in total defense, sixth against the pass and seventh against the rush. Only the Kansas City Chiefs (36) have more sacks than the Browns (31).

The improvement of cornerback Buster Skrine and emergence of rookie defensive lineman Armonty Bryant are more reasons for optimism.

If defensive coordinator Ray Horton can fix their third down struggles the Browns rank next to last in allowing a 46.1 conversion rate the unit should have a strong finish.

3. Chud leadership

It hard to imagine a rookie head coach dealing with as many issues as Rob Chudzinski has had this season. The 0 2 start. The Richardson trade. The quarterback roulette wheel. The injuries to key players. An owner under federal investigation.

Chudzinski has led his team through much uncertainty and has it in position to make an unexpected run at the playoffs. Players love his personal touches, his boyhood connection to the team and the confidence he shows in them with an NFL leading 19 fourth down attempts.

4. Bengals hurtin

The Browns best shot at making the postseason is winning the AFC North. The team they must catch is a banged up bunch, especially on defense.

The Bengals for the season to a torn anterior cruciate ligament last week. Joining him on the injured reserve list is top cornerback Leon Hall (torn Achilles) and safety Taylor Mays (dislocated shoulder). Middle linebacker Rey Maualuga (left knee, concussion) is expected to miss the next three to four weeks, while Pro Bowl offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth sat out last week with a right knee injury that limited him in training camp.

Those are key players for a team heading into a stretch run.

5. Wide open sixth spot

If the Browns cannot win the division they still have a shot at second wild card. Kansas City (9 0) or Denver (7 1) will win the AFC West and, barring a collapse, the other club will earn the top wild card.

The Browns (4 5) are in the mix with New York Jets (5 4), Miami (4 4), Tennessee (4 4) and San Diego (4 4). The Chargers with two games each against the Chiefs and Broncos.

The Browns for a potentially massive game with the Jets. The Browns close the regular season in Pittsburgh on Dec. 29. Can you envision a Browns playoff celebration at Heinz Field?

2014-Jun-20 - really wrong with

Audie Cole to start 17 days after getting waived

Erin Henderson has 125 tackles this season. Audie Cole has one.

That's the situation facing the Vikings Broncos Bradley Roby Jersey at middle linebacker for Sunday's game at Green Bay.

Henderson, the team's leading tackler, will miss the game for personal reasons. Cole, a second year man listed as third on the depth chart, will make his first career start.

Second stringer Mike Mauti won't start because he has missed time this week with a knee injury, but he's expected to play Sunday. Mauti this season has a total of two tackles.

The Vikings won't disclose any details on Henderson, who has missed practice all week. His agent, Brian Mackler, declined comment.

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said "at some point'' he expects to be able to talk about Henderson's situation. Frazier said Henderson likely will return to the team next week.

Meanwhile, plenty of responsibility will fall upon Cole, a seventh round draft choice in 2012. Cole actually was waived Nov. 7, when the Vikings needed a roster spot at offensive tackle for one game, then was re signed two days later.

Cole said he didn't really feel any pressure about starting.

"The only time I ever feel pressure is when I don't feel prepared, and I feel like I've prepared real well this week," he said. "The coaches have done a great job with me, and I think I'm real into the game plan. I don't really feel pressured or nervous because of it.''

Cole said he expects to make the defensive play calls, but Frazier said it hasn't been finalized whether Cole or strong side linebacker Chad Greenway will.

"You go through all of it during training camp," Cole said, "and each week, I'm still getting reps, doing those type of things. I don't think it's really too difficult.''

Cole was hardly guaranteed a roster spot after being drafted in 2012 out of North Carolina State. But he made the team, helped by a preseason game against Buffalo in which he returned two interceptions for touchdowns.

"He showed some big play potential coming up with those interceptions for touchdowns and did a good job on special teams last season, along with this season,'' Frazier said. "That's kind of been his niche up to this point, but he's always worked hard in practice. We've always felt really good about where he is. Now he'll get a chance.''

Mauti might have been Frazier's choice to start had he not tweaked his left knee in Sunday's 41 20 loss at Seattle. Mauti is technically listed as questionable for the Packers game.

Frazier said the Vikings will watch Mauti on special teams before determining if he might play some at middle linebacker. Mauti had an MRI on the knee Monday.

"Nothing's really wrong with it,'' said Mauti. "I just had a little bit of swelling, that's it. I don't foresee any limitations on Sunday, so I'll be good to go.''

The Vikings could use all the help they can get in replacing Henderson. The fifth year man was a primary starter in 2011 and 2012 at outside linebacker and has started all 10 games this season.

"(Cole has) got some guys up front that have to do a good job to help the middle linebacker, so we need our defensive line to play well,'' Frazier said. "We have confidence that Audie can do a good job. But we need the guys up front to do a good job and the guys on the back end, as well.''
