Rams lead latest Thursday Night snoozefest


More and more people are coming to the conclusion that Thursday Night Football is missing a couple of words in the title.  Like “not.”  And “very.”  And “good.”

The latest short-week snoozefest comes from the 49ers and Rams.  The home team leads after one quarter, 3-0.

49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick continues to look ordinary, completing two of five passes for 11 yards.  As NFL Network’s Mike Mayock pointed out, Kaepernick didn’t see a wide-open receiver that was his second read, instead getting sacked by Rams defensive lineman Robert Quinn.

Kaepernick also has no rushing attempts.

Phil Dawson missed a 53-yard field goal on San Francisco’s first drive.  Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein shtoinked a 40-yard try off the goal post for a three-pointer.

The Niners can still turn it around.  Especially if coach Jim Harbaugh’s halftime speech consists of reading aloud any mean Twitter messages directed to Kaepernick.

    My Ambien prescription ran out, so I’m really thankful for the game tonight. Thanks, NFL! I’ll have no problem getting to sleep now.

    The “prancing camel” looks lost……….

    At least Nessler and Mayock are a hell of a broadcast team. It’s a shame their talents are being marginalized by such shoddy football.

    First time I have watched the niners this year. Very dirty “team” if you will.

    Thursday night games should start later in the season and only feature teams coming off bye weeks and if the teams aren’t coming off byes, it should be an intra-conference matchup, not a divisional game, which are too key.

    Also, NFL Network needs to step up its game in the broadcast department. They have the most boring presentation, graphics, music, everything. I feel like I am watching a preseason game. They need to study FOX’s football broadcasts.

    Maybe this short week stuff after a Sunday game is really bad for the players. What will 2 extra games a year do to them?

  14. wearethesteelers says: Sep 26, 2013 9:55 PM

    These teams are pathetic.

  15. realfootballfan says: Sep 26, 2013 9:55 PM

    If the league gave the two teams the bye before their Thursday night appearance, this problem could be easily solved. Drop the night game on Thanksgiving with Detroit and Dallas maintaining their usual spot and ditch the second week and the last couple of weeks of Thursday night games. It works out perfectly. But of course, this makes too much sense, so let’s keep getting bad football instead.

    Kaepernick for Freeman?

  17. markaerrano78 says: Sep 26, 2013 10:00 PM

    Last week was a good game. Go Chiefs!

  18. noeffinway says: Sep 26, 2013 10:07 PM

    Lions will trade you straight-up, QB Shaun Hill for WR Boldin…….deal?

  19. tdotbronco says: Sep 26, 2013 10:10 PM

    NFC WEST…yaaaaaawn

  20. bigginger1 says: Sep 26, 2013 10:11 PM

    Mike Mayock can make any game a snooze fest

  21. braceyourselffor12 says: Sep 26, 2013 10:12 PM

    14-3 Niners at the half. But don’t let that discourage the haters. Oh and Seattle plays in Houston this Sunday were they don’t have the benefit of a structurally altered stadium that amplifies sound. Yeah you’re no louder than any other 70, 000 fans.

    YOUR JUICING, as usual.

    I’m so happy he’s tanking. he was proclaimed a god after 12 games.

  23. natijim235 says: Sep 26, 2013 10:43 PM

    saw this coming

  24. nolahxc says: Sep 26, 2013 11:45 PM

    NFL Network does such a bad job with the broadcast. The games are never built up. And they also tend to feature divisional rivalries, which most “rivalries” really don’t have the storylines that really capture the mass audience’s attention. Mayock and Nessler are also boring.

    If Fox, NBC, or CBS got to rotate the games, the ratings would be better. However,more importantly, the matchups are just bad.

    Thursday Night Football should have remained exclusive to the final 5 weeks of the season. It just isn’t working for me.

    get rid of mayock and nessler

  26. mackcarrington says: Sep 27, 2013 4:15 AM

    And people are already planning an evening out with dinner and a movie for next Thursday’s exciting contest between the Browns & Bills.

    Snoozefest is the right description. Both teams screamed “Wait until next year!”
