And so we enter the Temple of Jerry. Hopefully our 49ers don't get their hearts wripped out. I supposed it's not as big a deal in a preseason game. Of course, beating the Cowboys is always a good thing, right?

This game was initially going to be interesting because we'd likely get to see Shaun Hill get extended time with the first team offense. Now it's gotten a little more interesting due to the retirement of Marvel Smith. I'd imagine folks will be paying close attention to the play of every offensive tackle not named Joe Staley. While the retirement may have solidified Alex Boone's roster spot, it has given guys like Jacob Bender, Joe Toledo and Matt Spanos a ray of hope.

I have to cut out close to the end of the first half (around 6:45). So, for now I'll plan on scheduling a generic post-game thread, with an actual recap to come later tonight or first thing tomorrow morning.

Almost forgot, don't forget to enjoy the Andy Lee drinking game. I've reposted the rules after the jump. Thanks again to bignerd.



The rules are simple. You need a shot glass and the drink of your choice. If any of the below happens during the broadcast of the 49ers vs Cowboys preseason game this Saturday than raise your glass and shoot the drink down (If you'd like, substitute a drink for a shot).

1. One shot if the broadcast plays the clip of Titan's punter A.J. Trapasso hitting the scoreboard.

2. One shot if the broadcast plays a clip of Andy Lee hitting the scoreboard with a punt during pre-game warm ups.

3. One shot for every time the broadcast cuts to a shot of Jerry Jones just before an Andy Lee punt

4. One shot for every time Andy Lee punts the ball into the scoreboard.

5. One additional shot if the 49ers coverage team didn't even bother to pursue the kick knowing it was going to hit the scoreboard.

6. One shot if the broadcast cuts to Jerry Jones' uneasy face after Andy Lee punts the ball into his scoreboard.

7. Two shots if Coach Mike Singletary looks amused with Andy Lee punting the ball into the scoreboard.

8. One shot if any broadcaster makes an analogy between the new Cowboy Stadium and the Death Star.

9. One shot if Andy Lee is interviewed on the sideline during the broadcast and asked about punting the ball into the scoreboard.

10. One shot if any 49ers fan is spotted in the broadcast wearing an Andy Lee jersey.

11. Dallas punter Mat McBriar will be shot for hitting the scoreboard.


Thanks Fooch for the addendum of taking one drink instead of one shot, if you're not a hardcore drinker and want to be conscious before halftime.

In light of the new "Dallas do over" rule I thought it was appropriate to add one more rules to the list. (can also be called the "Jerry Jones is Roger Goodell's daddy rule")

12. One shot (or drink) if the broadcast explains the punt "do over" rule to the audience.
