Morning Tailgate: Sept. 25

Posted by Taylor Price on September 25, 2012 – 6:34 AM

BOARDMAN, Ohio – Good morning 49ers Faithful. By the time most of you on the West Coast are reading this, 49ers.com will be taking a journey to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

But first, let’s take a look at the top headlines from the team’s first day in the Youngstown area.

The team turned the page from a Week 3 loss in the best way possible by visiting the Akron Children’s Hospital and two schools in the Youngstown community. Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News has the details from the team’s uplifting hospital visit.

“The 49ers responded to their first loss of the season by doing some soul searching Monday. But this wasn’t your typical therapy,” Inman wrote. “Instead of flying home to the Bay Area after Sunday’s 24-13 upset loss at Minnesota, the 49ers began their five-day layover in this nondescript Midwest suburb by making community appearances, including a stop at the Akron Children’s Hospital.”

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee shares the good news on Patrick Willis and Isaac Sopoaga’s x-ray results in a rundown of all the latest happenings with the 49ers.

WKBN 27 News of Ohio shares photos, videos and a story of the team’s community outreach in Ohio.

John Vargo of the Tribune Chronicle shares Randy Moss’ comments from the hospital visit. Moss: “I think it’s great for the soul. I think it’s great for the mind to really be able to come to see these kids, see their parents when they’re feeling down and out and put a smile on their face. That’s what life is about is happiness and seeing other people happy. For us to come over to this children’s hospital, it was a blessing for us to be here.”

49ers.com covered the surprising visit of legendary running back Jim Brown to team headquarters in Ohio.



Boom, indeed.

    Nobody wanted to talk about this in Aug and now somebody mention boycotting some games that won’t happen. As I watched the highlights from last night game I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, I just hop and pray that our next game that it doesn’t get ugly. and nobody gets hurt .

    Last week lost was bad enough, BUT to lose the way the pack did. As much as I don’t care for them, I don’t like to see that!
    BTW has anybody seen the NFL Lord and Master, me thinks he’s laying low, eh? If he doesn’t get it right, get this straighten out pretty quick! This is what he’ll be know for, tripping over the dollars to save a few pennies Wow!
    Even the owners don’t want to be seen with him, is he going down?

    what a joke,the NFL has no excuse now not to bring back the regular ref’s.
    there was a statement made by the NFL a month or two ago sayng,and I quote,” we are sticking with the re-placement ref’s for now untill it becomes apparent that their decisions effect the outcome of games.” well,c’mon NFL,,after monday nighs debacle you have no excuse not to pay the regular rfs and get them bak A.S.A.P.

    really this is out of goodells hands owners are calling the shots, and they won’t do something till one of the stars gets nailed.
    Right now what are the owners saying !
    Attendants 70,000 $$ TV money in the bank$$
    the Fans? “they eat what we server`em” they have whats know as a captive audience. We have no place to go we love football too much, but maybe we need to take a stand, this food taste like smells like s h i t !

    I can just imagine reading an article in the Sac Bee season ticket holders boycotting the next game at Candlestick Park; have the fans take signs into the stadium showing there displeasure and not have them buy any beer or food , that’s like not buying gas because of the price . Everyone is still going to go to the game’s no matter if there regular refs or replacements. Hey 9erdog when did the OILERS start playing aging, ? I saw the hit.

    “Due to several on-field occurrences of incompetent officiating, we chose to part ways with a crew which apparently is now officiating in the NFL,” Lingerie League commissioner Mitch Mortaza said in a statement. “We have a lot of respect for our officials but we felt the officiating was not in line with our expectations.

    “Because of the LFL’s perception it is that much more critical for us to hire officiating crews that are competent, not only for the credibility of our game but to keep our athletes safer. Due to several on-field incompetent officiating we chose to part ways with with a couple crews which apparently are now officiating in the NFL. We have a lot of respect for our officials but we felt the officiating was not in line with our expectations,” the LFL statement said.

    so thats the lingerie league commiss saying they fired some refs for lack of perfomance(chuckle chuckle) so the lingerie league has a better commissioner,thats a riot

    well singletary got revenge on alex and set him up with a …ok alex we are going to stuff the run and make you beat us ……alex fell right into it ….what no receivers ….oh the line again …..start the excuse train every team we play will be doing as close to that as possible to expose the alex and ounce again stop these really great players on the niners from achieveing a superbowl …shall wait 3 more games to be sure but looks like same old flat foot alex not knowing what to do in a big game or how to win and get his team motivated to win …and locking arm in arm alex = loss ….remember the seahawks game….best of luck …well lets just see how alex responds to yet another exposure of his lack of reads and playaction and pump fake being non existant

    Well 11 years, I was just waiting for you to stick out your head again. After setting a record for non interceptions and taking care of the ball better than the competition, he finally got intercepted and fumbled. You must have had a field day and felt windicated in your hate for Alex.(/Which is by the way quite pathological), This was a freak game where everbody except Kyle Williams (the culprit against the Giants) was playing under par. Alex still has a great quarterback rating this year and 49ers will end up playing at the Super Bowl. You can´t be a 49er when you feel best when we loose a game. Hope you can find a team that you really can support, 49ers are not your team.
