The 49ers have not had a great offseason. Players retired, were traded or straight up released, and if it wasn’t a career threatening injury sidelining a key player, it was a bonehead move in their personal life. It remains to be seen what kind of team the 49ers will be this season, but if last night is any indicator, they’re going to play hard for 60 minutes, and that’s all you can really ask. While the defense shut down Teddy, AP and the rest of the Vikings offense, the night belonged to Carlos Hyde. With Reggie Bush already sidelined after only two carries, Hyde took over the game. He bulled people over when he had to, but by far the prettiest play of the night came on his first touchdown run. Hyde took the handoff from Kaep and started towards the right sideline. When that was shut off, he spun around a defender and headed toward the left sideline, scoring his first of what are hopefully many TD’s this season. It’s virtually impossible to have the personnel/coaching turnover the 9ers had this offseason and not be a different team, but it’s tough to not love what you saw last night. They travel to Pittsburgh next week, and if they can put the same amount of pressure on Big Ben, I like their chances.
Pre season games are usually for players to get their reps in and get ‘regular season ready’, but somebody forgot to give Antonio Brown that memo. This why Brown will be the first receiver drafted, and this is why he’s going to get picked before some top tier running backs. Big Ben loves to throw, and without Le’Veon Bell the first two games, Brown is going to see a lot of targets. The best part is that defensives can’t stop plays like these. Brown catches the ball behind the line of scrimmage, and just runs through and past everyone. It’s unstoppable. I can’t wait for football.
Football – It is a case of good news-bad news for fans of long-running FX/FXX series The League. The good news: The comedy about the members of a fictional fantasy football league has been renewed for a 13-episode seventh season. The bad: It will be the show’s last.
The League, which just completed its sixth season, was created by the husband-and-wife team of Jeff Schaffer and Jackie Marcus Schaffer, who serve as executive producers and directors for FX Productions.
“Whatever, I’ve won it twice,” said Jackie Schaffer. “Most players in the NFL don’t make it seven seasons, and most TV shows even less so. We want to thank FX Networks and all our Eskimo brothers and sisters. NFL teams would be lucky to have fans as diehard as ours.”
Added Jeff Schaffer, “Spoiler alert: We already know how it will all end — with credits and the theme song.”
The bad news kind of outweighs the good news here. I’m ecstatic ‘The League’ is coming back, but I’m not ecstatic that this is the end. ‘The League’ is one of the most original shows on TV, and one of the only shows to really never have bad episode. Some episodes were funnier than others, but the cast was so strong, and guest stars so funny, that it was impossible for them to have an episode that didn’t work. The show finishes with it’s usual 13 episode season next year, but we’ll always have Netflix and our memories for when it’s over.
This weeks Twitter News Weekly is our first ever print edition. If you miss our handsome faces, don’t worry, we’ll be back next week with an all new TNW video. In the meantime, don’t look Fantasy Football get you down, and try not to catch Ebola.
Fntasy Football is in full swing and at about this time of year you either want to yell from the roof tops or jump off those same rooftops. Let’s see how twitter is doing with fantasy football.
I once knew a guy that dropped Brandon Marshall to waivers in the middle of his breakout season with the Broncos. I feel your pain.
Look to the future, no need to dwell on your shitty ass fantasy team. BTW i’m using “wasteland” more often, thanks for that.
I feel your pain. It’s like watching an episode of America’s Most Wanted every time I turn on a game. Keep your chin up.
If there’s one place I would go to to find out the latest on the Ebola epidemic, it’s Twitter. Let’s see what the future of America had to say:
If you had 100/1 odds that Ebola would eventually turn into a race discussion, you’re a winner! How about we band together and help to find a cure instead of pointing fingers so quickly?
Solid advice right here. Go anywhere else you want. But not the airport. Airport = Ebola. Are we having fun yet?
Not sure what to say about this one, although it makes sense that zombies would eventually enter the discussion. You can’t fixate on The Walking Dead and Call of Duty and not eventually being to think zombies are everywhere.
I’m not sure where you’re getting your news from, but I think this is false. Its actually shocking how many people now think Ebola is turning people into zombies. Actually, it’s not shocking at all.
We’re still out of shape, and we’re still giving fantasy football advice. Anyone who took the Geno Smith advice for this past Monday, we sincerely apologize. We talk our week 3 studs and duds, and who’s going to shine in week 4. Enjoy!

We go over our studs from week 2, some top waiver wire pickups, and who we think is going to excel in week 3. We also call out our friend who did a little too much tinkering when trying to figure out who to start at quarterback. Don’t sit the Cutlet! Enjoy, and as always, any fantasy football/life questions, send us a tweet @averagenobodies or comment on this post.
