49ers make it Hammer Time

mc-hammer-pants

The last time M.C. Hammer was written about on PFT — yes there was a last time — the former pop star was trying to show Michael Crabtree he wasn’t too legit to quit his holdout.

Amazingly, the 49ers and Hammer have crossed paths again.  And it came at he 49ers request, per Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com.

M.C. Hammer spoke to a group of 49ers on Tuesday about the “trials and tribulations” that can come with being a public figure. It appears that the talk was mostly directed at the 49ers rookies, who took to Twitter to show their appreciation.

At 5-1, we’re surprised the 49ers weren’t more cautious about adding someone new to the mix that could disrupt the team’s mojo.

Please, Hammer: Don’t hurt ‘em.

    There is wisdom that can be gleaned from Hammer. Now excuse me while I youtube my favorite videos of him.

    This sort of thing IS their mojo.

    Next up: Vanilla Ice tries to motivate the NY Mets into becoming a contender again.

    Funny…..1990’s flash in the pan meets the 2011 flash in the pan. Both soon to be forgotten.

    The 49ers must really believe that their team is going to be filled with young stars, considering that they brought in Hammer to teach the youngins about the pitfalls of fame, because not only are ESPN and the NFL Network beating on their doors to get interviews, they also have People, GQ, Esquire… to contend with.
    The 49ers have a good defense however they need to score on almost every single drive, because they cannot move the ball consistently. They average 302.5 yards per game. (27th)
    Now if only these “young stars” can produce on offense instead of riding the Gore train to victories.
    I want to bring in Flava Flav and Chuck D.
    Don’t believe the hype.

    If anyone knows what it’s like to have it all and squander it foolishly it’s Hammer. He might be one of the best guys out there to give a speech to young athletes faced with stardom and tons of cash.

    Because when I think of motivational and inspirational speakers, the first guy who comes to my mind is MC Hammer.

    Thought he was a Raider fan?

    Forgot to mention they were with the Falcons at that time.

    Not a Niner fan, but my guess is he’s talking to them about taking care of their money. Hammer blew thru all of his in about 4 years.

    No one knows more about blowing millions on bull crap than MC Hammer, so him going to talk to the Rooks about saving money was a great thing.

    Yet the Niners are 5th in points per game. So while not consistent at all, they are extremely efficient. Couple that with a stingy defense, you got Harbaugh’s winning formula

    This team plays the field position with good D with a lot of TO’s and great ST play. So, a lot of their scoring drives are very short, and thats how they manage to score so much but not show it in the ypg.

    ==============================

    But what if they’re not a flash in the pan? What if they keep it up? Wait, did the thought of that just make you cry a little? Good.

    _______________________

    Flash in the pan? It’s not like we’re running the wild cat or the statue of liberty play here. Doing what Nolan and Singletary wanted to do in terms of establishing the run – Harbaugh and Staff are accomplishing this with a cerebral approach against some good competition. It’s hard to deny the fact that while the talent has been around the last few years; 7 weeks into the season has shown that this 49ers team game plans pretty well and comes prepared. Long season left so we can review this in January. For now, i’ll enjoy it. Maybe you need a team to root for. With ineptitude and a mediocre product since the 2002 season – it’s nice to be relevant again.
