49ers Coach Mike Nolan's Press Confernce Notes and Quotes

  • The defensive players had "mental errors" on the  long passes that Brees connected on.
  • "Our offensive line can play better."
  • The Saints offense is similar to their own offense.
  • Has not spoken with Vernon Davis after his outburst on the field but he will.  "Vernon is an emotional player."
  • "Kentwan  Balmer is getting better."   
  • "The vertical passes were the ones that got us in trouble."  
  • Thought the defense did some outstanding things.
  •  Wanted to slow the game down so he used the challenge in the 3rd quarter on a six yard gain by the Saints.
  • Might  activate Tully Banta-Cain for the Patriots game
  • Doesn't plan on making any lineup changes.

D Wizzle's Week 4 NFL Predictions

49ers over Saints: The Saints have too many injuries to contend with the explosive 49ers offense. Without Marques Colston, Jeremy Shockey, and Jamar Nesbit, the Saints don't have a chance.
Look for Vernon Davis to have a career game today.

Titans over Vikings: Titans are too good on defense for the Vikings and Gus Ferrotte. Look for a lot of turnovers from the Vikings.

Browns over Bengals: Carson Palmer has an injured elbow and we might see his backup Ryan Fitzpatrick today. I'll take the Browns here with a healthy Derek Anderson.

Chargers over Raiders: This will be a big blowout. Too many injuries on  the Raiders defense will make this a laugher by halftime. 

Panthers over Falcons: Michael Turner played great against the lowly Lions and Chiefs, but he will have a tough time today against the Panthers.  The Panthers win and go 3-1.

Cowboys over Redskins: This could be a closer game than most people think but the Cowboys are at home and will prevail.

Bills over Rams: The Bills won't suffer a letdown against the lowly Rams. The Rams might fire their coach after this game. The player don't like Scott Linehan and might not give their best effort in order to get him fired today.

Steelers over Ravens: This game will be very low-scoring and I'll take the home team.

Bucs over Packers: The Bucs are coming off a big win over Chicago and the  Packers are coming off a tough loss to Dallas.  I'll take the home team here again. The Packers won't get used to the humidity in  Florida.

Broncos over Chiefs: The Broncos are too good to lose to a 0-3 Chiefs team. The media is saying the Broncos D is bad but I think they are better than most people think.  They played the two top passing offenses in the NFL the last two weeks and that is why their defensive stats are poor. The numbers will improve after this game.

Jaguars over Texans: The Jags might have Jerry Porter for this game and the Texans might bench QB Matt Schaub if he plays poorly in the first half.

Bears over Eagles: The Bears D will show up today and shut down the Eagles offense. 

Cardinals over Jets: This is the toughest game for me to pick this week. This game is so hard to call but I will take the road team here. The Jets played a tough Monday night game against the Chargers and had a short week. The Cardinals played in the East Coast last week and stayed there all week this week to prepare for the Jets.

Raiders Exec Confronts Local Writer - VIDEO

This is a funny video of San Jose Mercury News writer, Tim Kawakami, getting into a war of words with an Oakland Raiders executive. Check out the part when Kawakami puts his hand on the executive's arm. The Raiders are not big fans of Kawamkami's writing and reporting due to the fact that he talks about Lane Kiffin's potential firing almost daily in the San Jose Merc.

NFL Week 3 Picks

Giants over Bengals -  Going out on a limb I am not.  The Bengals will keep it closer than most expect though.

Falcons over Chiefs - The Chiefs are the worst team in the NFL right now. Michael Turner might get 200 yards again.

Bills over Raiders - This will be a blowout. Roscoe Parrish might get another punt return TD.  

Titans over Texans - The Titans defense will lead the way for the Titans.

Cardinals over Redskins - Cardinals go 3-0. 

Patriots over Dolphins -  This is a no-brainer.

Bears over Bucs - Bears win in their home opener with defense.

Panthers over Vikings - The Panthers get Steve Smith back and the Vikings can't score TDs.

Seahawks over Rams - Scott Linehan will be fired before the end of the season. 

Lions over 49ers - This is a must-win for both teams. I will go with the road team here. 49ers will let down their fans once again.

Broncos over Saints - This is going to be one high-scoring game. 

Eagles over Steelers -  Big Ben's shoulder is hurt and the Steelers are on the road two weeks in a row. Give the edge to the Eagles.

Jaguars over Colts -  I think the Jags will run all over the Colts defense today.

Browns over Ravens - This is a must-win for the Browns and I will take the better offensive team.

Packers over Cowboys - Aaron Rodgers will beat the Cowboys tonight. This game will be very high-scoring.  Dallas is still celebrating their Monday night  win over the Eagles.

Chargers over Jets -  Chargers are not going  0-3.

NFL Coaches In Danger of Being Fired

Here is a list of NFL coaches who risk getting fired unless their teams start to win some games and show improvement.

Romeo Crennel of the Browns -  Crennel's team is 0-2 and playing very poorly. This team looks like a one year wonder after having a great year last season, but starting off terribly in 2008.  Crennel has made some poor decisions managing the game last week against Pittsburgh. 

Herman Edwards of the Chiefs - Another black coach on the firing line? Yes. Edwards has a bad team and he could be the one taking the fall. I don't think it is all his fault though as the QB situation is a mess. He should be fine this season but the Chiefs really need to get a real starting QB.

Lane Kiffin of the Raiders - Kiffin looks like he will be fired sooner than later. He doesn't get along with the owner, Al Davis, or the defensive coordinator, Rob Ryan. My sources tell me the players like Kiffin but don't care if he is fired either. 

Brad Childress of the Vikings - The Vikings are 0-2 and don't have a legitimate starting QB. Childress was supposed to be an offensive guru but the Vikings have not had an explosive offense since he was hired.

Rod Marinelli of the Lions - Lions are also 0-2 and their defense stinks. Marinelli  is supposed to know defense but his team has given up over 30 points a game this year. This does not bold well for Marinelli.

Jon Gruden of the Bucs - This guy keeps hanging on as coach but for how long? Another bad season and the fans and ownership might want him out.

Scott Linehan of the Rams - Linehan might be the first coach fired in 2008. The Rams could be the worst team in the NFC. The players don't like him or respect him. He seems to have lost control of his team.

Mike Nolan of the 49ers - My guess is he will be fired right after the 49ers lose to Seattle on October 26. He should have been fired a long time ago.

Hottie of the Week: Former EliteXC Ring Girl Jamie Schake


D Wizzle is back with a new Hottie of the Week (HOW) and this time it is former EliteXC ring girl, Jamie Schake. Jamie is 21 and is currently living in Honolulu, Hawaii, but she also used to live in the San Francisco Bay Area. 

You may have seen her in music videos, bikini contests, car shows, or as a ring girl at MMA events. 



I've done lingerie, bikini modeling, and modeling in car shows. I've also done many bikini contests and usually always win!


Yes, I would pose nude  if it was for Playboy, Hustler, or  Penthouse, and if the pay was great!


Yes, my 34D boobies are real! (laughs)


Well, first of all, I like my men tall; perferably 6'0  or taller. The guy must be modest and a gentleman . He has to be able to have fun  anywhere, doing anything! Very spontanous, adventurous, and a little dangerous because I love to have fun!


Hawaii has nicer beaches than the Bay Area.  It's summer all year round here. Nobody goes 95 mph on the highway in Hawaii. No matter where you go, in 10 minutes you can be at a beach. I just love Hawaii way better.


Oh dear lord! I would have to say missionary. I know it's cliche, but it's just so damn comfortable and it lets the man take charge and I like that!


I like to go  to the beach a lot. I like to do anything  like relax, explore, hike, as long as it's in nature and not too many people are around. I also LOVE eating out. I don't eat meat , but i eat everything else!


Nobody ever guesses, but I am half Chinese, and Half German-Dutch. My mom was born in Hong Kong.


I loved being an EliteXC ring girl!  It was fun being in front of a huge crowd, and being a ring girl requires no thinking, except for  don't fall on your heels, and don't hold the ring card upside down! (laughs)


Yes, I kissed a few girls. I think girls are beautiful and sexy, but no, I don't really like kissing girls. They kiss too soft, and I kiss soft too so it doesn't really balance out. I like when a man kisses you because it's so agressive and  they take control and  it's so passionate.

  • There were 7 passes by J.T. O'Sullivan over 20  yards.
  • Left Tackle Jonas Jennings was injured and came out due to a bad shoulder.

AFC East Player of the Week: Buffalo QB Trent Edwards

Edwards was 20-25 for 239 yards with one TD as the Bills defeated Jacksonville 20-16. This was a big win for the Bills on the road. Edwards was very steady and threw a TD pass to James Hardy to help the Bills take the lead in the fourth quarter.

AFC North Player of the Week: Pittsburgh Safety Troy Polamalu

Stewart ran for two TDs as Carolina downed the Bears 20-17.

NFC West Player of the Week:  San Francisco LB Patrick Willis

If not for Willis' 86-yard interception return for a TD in the third quarter, the 49ers might be staring at an 0-2 record. The 49ers were down  20-13, and the Seahawks were driving deep in San Francisco territory when Willis caught a tipped ball and was able to run it all the way to the end zone.

Upset of the Week: Buffalo 20 Jacksonville 16

It is not easy to beat Jacksonville at home, but the Bills were able to do that. This is a big win for the 2-0 Bills.

Week 2 NFL Predictions

Here are my predictions for Week 2.

Vikings vs. Colts
I like the Colts to take this one even though All Day Petersen will have over 150 yards rushing. 

If the Colts get a big lead, the Vikings will be forced to pass to catch up. 

Raiders vs. Chiefs
I like KC in this one.  Who will be fired first in the Bay Area? Kiffin or Nolan? It is never easy for a QB to play in Arrowhead and JaMarcus will make mistakes.

I was not impressed with McFadden in his first game against Denver. I was not impressed at all in preseason either. Justin Fargas  looks a lot better so far.

Titans vs. Bengals
Give me the Bengals at home. The only reason is because they are at home.

Saints vs. Redskins
Same as the previous pick. Redskins because it is their home opener and the Saints are missing Colston and three starters on D.

Packers vs. Lions
The Lions stunk up the Georgia Dome last week but rebound at home.  The Lions will probably not give up 34 points like they did last week against the Falcons.

Bears vs. Panthers
I like the Bears here with their imposing D and Matt Forte leading them to another road win.

Giants vs. Rams
The Giants will win by double digits.  

Bills vs. Jaguars
Jaguars will win their home opener. Bills are too young and unproven to win in Jacksonville.

Falcons vs. Bucs
The Bucs will win this one with defense.

49ers vs. Seahawks
The Seahawks will blow out the 49ers at home. Look for TE John Carlson to have a nice game and a TD or two. J.T. O' Sullivan will be sacked a few times and throw a few picks.

Dolphins vs. Cardinals
This is an easy one. Cardinals will win this one at home. Dolphins start 0-2.

Pats vs. Jets
No Tom Brady but the Pats will still win with defense.

Chargers vs. Broncos
This is the Game of the Week for me. This should be a great game and I like Denver to pull the upset. Chargers go 0-2.

Steelers vs. Browns
The Browns will win at home. 

Eagles vs. Cowboys
What a great MNF game. I like the Cowboys because the Eagles are still missing their starting WRs.

Alicia Sacramone Video at Mr Chow's

Here is a new Alicia Sacramone  video of her  at Mr. Chow's. 
The media and paparazzi try to bait her into talking about the ages of the Chinese gymnasts and they also talk about Michael Phelps.

The funniest part of the video is when she says "Silver is classier than gold."  If you can't find the video, you might have to scroll down and look for "Alicia Sacramone: Loser Talk."

You are a very young MMA fighter. Can you tell me how you got into MMA?

My uncle got me into it. He used to strap the gloves to me, my brothers, and my cousins, and we would just go at it.  He showed me some  UFC tapes and I  just got hooked from there.

Which gym do you train at and who are some of  your instructors and training partners?

The gym I  train at is Team Voodoo out of Turlock,  California.  My instructors are Gene and Cat Fields.  Some of my training partners are Jeremiah Metcalf, Josh Neal, Anthony Ruiz, and Jorge Interiano. Jorge  is also fighting at  the Young Guns show.

Who are some of your favorite MMA fighters to watch?

I like to watch B.J. Penn  becaouse he has it all -  good stand-up, great takedown defense, and great jiu-jitsu.  His fights are never boring and he's not scared to fight anyone.  I  thought  he won the first fight with GSP.

Do you prefer to stand or get the fight to the ground?

i prefer to stand.

 If you were not a MMA fighter, what would you  be doing instead?


Thanks for taking the time to talk to me.  Good luck on Saturday against Evan! Do you  have any final words for the fans out there?

Thanks.  Everyone better go because it's gonna  be a good one!

49ers Vs. Cardinals Recap, Stats, and Notes

The 49ers lost 23-13 to Arizona in Week 1.

The 49ers lost because they were outplayed and outcoached.

Mike Nolan refused to gamble offensively and this cost his team. Did anyone believe he would actually go for it on 4th and 1 at the end of the second quarter with his team down 10-7? 

The 49ers settled for the FG instead to tie up the game 10-10.  J.T. O'Sullivan pretended to go for it and try to draw the Cardinals offside but they were not going to fall for it.  

No team will believe the 49ers will gamble on offense as long as Nolan is the head coach.  

On the other side, Ken Whisenhunt went for it on fourth down three times and was successful twice. That was a big key to the game.  Whisenhunt clearly outcoached  Nolan.

Nolan did look better than Whisenhunt though. Nolan once again looked great in his sunglasses, white shirt, and tie.  Too bad he isn't as good with the X's and O's.

J.T. O'Sullivan played poorly and threw an interception along with two fumbles. This guy has no pocket presence whatsoever.

O'Sullivan had timing issues with his WRs as expected.  I wanted O'Sullivan to get more playing time in the preseason but Nolan insisted on playing Alex Smith and Shaun Hill more instead.

Did Isaac Bruce play? I don't know if he did or not.  

RB Frank Gore had a good game with a nice 41-yard touchdown run. 

Where are the plays to Vernon Davis?  Davis thinks he is the best TE in the league.  He is not even top five.  He might be the highest paid TE or the strongest, but he is not the best TE.  

Davis hasn't been able to show the fans much over the years but it is not all his fault. Much of the blame goes to the coaching staff for not utilizing him properly.

The 49ers defense could not stop the running game or the passing game of the Cardinals.

Anquan Bolden abused the  49ers' cornerbacks and caught eight passes in the second half.

The Cardinals dialed up  blitzes all day long on  O'Sullivan and had four sacks. O'Sullivan never saw so many different coverages in preseason.

If you watched the Bears Vs. Colts game last night, you saw how the Bears utilized their two TEs Desmond Clark and Greg Olsen.   Delanie Walker and Davis are more talented than those two TEs but the Bears used their TEs more effectively on Sunday.  

The 49ers face the Seahawks next week and Arizona takes on Miami at home.

Rashad Evans Knocks Out Liddell - VIDEO

Rashad Evans Knocks Out Liddell - VIDEO

UFC 88:"Breakthrough" Review

UFC 88 did not disappoint  as the main event between Rashad "Sugar" Evans and Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell  ended in a knockout by Evans.

Evans shocked the world by knocking out "The Iceman" in the second round.

Liddell was going for an uppercut when Evans connected with an overhand right which knocked Liddell out cold.

Most fans expected Liddell to win because he was the better striker of the two.

Liddell pressured Evans throughout the whole fight while Evans patiently waited for an opening.

Evans was dancing the whole night. He danced before the fight, during the fight, and after the fight.

Some people are turned off by Evans' dancing and consider it to be nothing more than showboating.

Fighters such as Matt Hughes have been turned off by Evans' so-called showmanship.

Unfortunately for the Evans' bashers,  Evans danced all night long on Saturday.

Evans was a big underdog but if you looked at the match-up more closely, Evans had a very good chance to win.

The undefeated fighter from Niagara Falls was a lot faster and more athletic than the older Liddell.

Liddell was never able to catch Evans with a lot of good  punches due to the speed and great footwork of Evans.

Round one was very slow-paced as both fighters were feeling each other out.

The second round was much like the first round until Evans connected  and ended the fight.

Evans should get a title shot against UFC light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin.

As for Liddell, he will have to probably win two or three fights in order to get another title shot.

The media asked him if he was going to retire and he said no.

Why does the media always ask fighters if they are going to retire after a tough loss? It is ridiculous.

Liddell shouldn't retire but he does need to keep his hands up instead of dropping them so low that a fighter such as Evans can easily connect.  

Maybe Liddell needs new trainers and sparring partners as well to keep his training fresh and get new ideas from other trainers and coaches.

If Randy Couture loses to Brock Lesnar in November, you can bet the media will ask  the 45-year-old Couture if he plans to retire.

In other fights, Dong Hyun Kim defeated Matt Brown by split decision. 

Kim clearly defeated Brown and dominated the first and third rounds of the fight.

The biased UFC commentators, Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan, kept on insisting that Brown won the fight even though anyone with a unbiased opinion knew that Kim had won the fight.

Kim had a few takedowns in round three and also cut Brown. 

In round one, Kim almost finished the fight with a standing rear naked choke.

The crowd in Atlanta was very racist and booed Kim throughout the fight. 

The disrespectful fans and UFC commentators  were all over Kim after the judges awarded the decision to him.

The South Korean was very gracious after the fight and displayed nothing but class despite all the hostility thrown his way.

In another exciting fight, Nate Marquardt defeated Martin Kampmann by TKO in the first round.

Dan Henderson defeated Rousimar Palhares in a dull match. Palhares kept on going for takedowns which Henderson defended throughout the three-round fight.  Henderson won by unanimous decision.

In the co-main event of the evening, Rich Franklin moved up a weight class to fight Matt "The Hammer" Hamill.  Franklin won with kick to the liver which dropped Hamill. Franklin started to rain down punches on Hamill and the referee stopped the fight.

Overall, this was a good UFC pay-per-view. There were five fights on the main card and three ended  by TKO. 

The next UFC show will be on Spike TV on September 17.

49ers Vs. Cardinals Preview

Look for a very high-scoring game this afternoon when the 49ers face the Cardinals.

RB Frank Gore must have a good game if the 49ers are to win.

Two nose tackles for Arizona are out for the game. Gore should have room to run throughout the game.

How will J.T. O' Sullivan do against the tough Cardinals defense? 

O'Sullivan will see different and more complex coverages than he saw in preseason. 

The Cardinals have two studs on defense in linebacker Karlos  Dansby and safety Adrian Wilson.

TE Vernon Davis must make an impact in this game for the 49ers against single coverage.

On defense, the 49ers must pressure the pocket and force Warner to hurry his throws. 

RB Edgerrin James has to have a good game for his team also.

The Cardinals need to keep Warner's jersey clean.

C Al Johnson is out for the year for Arizona.

The 49ers have good cover corners but you can't stop WRs Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin for four quarters.  A pass rush will help the secondary contain the Arizona passing game immensely.

This will be a very close game but I see the Cardinals winning it 27-23.

Arizona lost twice last year to the 49ers and this is a huge revenge game for them.

Arizona faces Miami at home next week, and the 49ers head to Seattle to face the Seahawks.

A Look At The San Francisco 49ers 2008 Schedule

It is imperative that the 49ers get off to a good start or Mike Nolan could be out of a job.
With that being said, the schedule doesn't bold well for a successful season at all.

The 49ers must win their season opener at home against Arizona or face a strong possibility of going 0-2 since they face Seattle on the road in Week 2.

It is never easy to win in Seattle and it will be even harder for a first year starting quarterback such as J.T. O' Sullivan to overcome the crowd noise at Qwest Field.

Another must-win game would be the third game of the season at home against the Lions. The Lions are much improved but this is a game the 49ers should win.

You know Mike Martz will do his best to have the offense put up a lot of points on the Lions. Martz was the offensive coordinator for the Lions last year.

The 49ers could conceivably lose their next five games after the Detroit game.

They have to go to New Orleans and face the high-flying offense led by Drew Brees and Reggie Bush.

San Francisco comes home for two straight home games after that against the Patriots and Eagles.

It would be quite an upset if the 49ers could defeat both these teams.

What makes it worst is that the Patriots have a bye week right before they face San Francisco.

Bill Belichick will have two weeks to game-plan for the 49ers and J.T. O'Sullivan. That is a scary thought for the 49ers Faithful.

After the Eagles game, the 49ers will face the defending Super Bowl champions, the New York Giants.

Chalk up another loss for the 49ers at Giants Stadium.

Mike Nolan's team has to play the Seahawks at home right before a bye week.

I see this game as another must-win game for Nolan. 

I don't see the 49ers winning this game as Mike Holmgren gets one last victory in his hometown.

I expect Nolan will be fired after this game and the 49ers get two weeks to transition into a new system with a new coach.

After the bye week, the 49ers play on Monday night against Arizona. This should be a competitive game but it is a tossup on who will come out victorious.

After the short week, they must face the Rams at home.

The next two games in November will be on the road against Dallas and Buffalo.

I don't think anyone sees this team winning against the Cowboys.

A road game in Buffalo in the winter is never easy for a West Coast team.

The four games in December gives the 49ers a good chance of going 3-1.

They face the Jets at home before departing the Bay Area once again to take on the Dolphins and the Rams.

The last game of the season will be home against the Redskins.

The game at Miami might be the easiest game for them to win on the road.

The season and Nolan's job status will be decided in October when they have to face the Patriots, Eagles, Giants, and Seahawks.

The 49ers will improve this year offensively under Martz and their defense will improve also.

Unfortunately for the fans in the Bay Area, this team still won't be able to win a lot of games in 2008.

Expect the games to be more exciting and closer than last year, but when the dust settles, Nolan will be fired and the 49ers will have to start over once again with a new coaching staff.

Biggest Upset of the Week: Arkansas State 18 Texas A&M 14

There were a few upsets this week but this one stunned me the most. I would never have expected A&M to lose their home opener to a Sun Belt team.

Pictures from UFC Fighter Anthony "Rumble" Johnson's Visit to Shriner's Hospital

Here are exclusive pictures of UFC fighter Anthony "Rumble" Johnson hanging out and signing autographs for the kids at  the Shriner's Hospital in Los Angeles. 

Clothing company KNOXX was  there to support the hospital  and brought along Rumble to meet and play with the kids.

The kids were very happy to meet Rumble and they also enjoyed the free schwag given to them by KNOXX.

There was also a MMA charity event on Saturday called "Fighting 4 Kidz" to benefit Shriner's Hospital.

There were a lot of notable fighters on the card including Gabe Ruediger. 

Quinton "Rampage" Jackson was also there to support the very worthy cause. Rampage also took the time to take pictures and talk with fans. 

UFC fighter Josh Koscheck was also in attendance at the fights.
