49ers 9, Washington 0

As noted by our astute commenters, sometimes ugly can be beautiful, and this game truly was. Probably the most gorgeous ugly victory of the year. Washington conjured up a squall for this game, which tilted the odds their way since

King of the Hill

It’s not the heartbreak of psoriasis, but 49er fans are going to have to dust off their ability to absorb a “disappointing loss” once again. When your team is dog meat for almost five years, there’s no such thing as

49ers 20, Rams 7

It appears to be official: the 49ers are BACK. The only undefeated team in the NFC and atop the standings in the NFC West. For the second week in a row, they dominated the TOP, this time by 39 to

Once and Future Past

In the previous century, the Rams and 49ers had an in-state rivalry that spanned 46 years. That all ended in 1995 when the clueless new owner of the Rams, Georgia Frontiere, moved the team to St. Louis. End of the rivalry.

49ers 31, Browns 3

Wow. That was quite a butt kicking. The 49ers dominated the Browns in every way possible. Scoreboard. TOP. INTs. Sacks. Turnovers. Rushing. Passing. Have I left anything out? Oh, the Browns had three more penalties than the Niners. Their only

Upstart Bragging Rights

The Browns and 49ers haven’t been of much interest for a good while to NFL followers (except as sarcastic or comedic examples of poorly run franchises). But this year, both teams are the darlings of the expert prognosticators that glut

Weirdo Weekend

IIRC, the third week of a season was generally the week that produced wacky happenstances in the NFL. But this year, it was definitely week four. How do you explain yesterday’s results? The unimpressive Browns rolled into the high-flying Ravens’

Upwardly Mobile

This is the earliest BYE week the 49ers have ever had. Kind of early for a nap, IMHO. I normally push myself through a pot of coffee and five hours before taking my first nap of the day. The team

49ers 24, Steelers 20

You won’t win many games in the NFL when you turn the ball over five times. But the 49er defense made their five turnovers hurt less than the two Pittsburgh had. The Steelers got six points and the Niners got

Beware the Curse of the Three

If the 49ers were a long established contender, this Sunday might be considered a “trap game.” But the current team is still trying to prove it belongs, so it’s unlikely they will be taking any team lightly this year. Every

49ers 41, Bengals 17

Juggernaut! 572 yards. 5 TDs. 27-14 edge in first downs. 259 yards rushing. The 49ers torched the Bengals on Sunday afternoon in Cincinnati. They stuffed the Bengals running game (19 attempts for 25 yds), sacked Andy Dalton four times, and dominated

Sustainable Growth?

When the 2019 schedule came out, it looked like the 49ers had a real shot at opening the season with three straight losses – maybe even five. The first two games were in the Eastern time zone, where the team

49ers 31, Buccaneers 17

They came, they saw, they conquered. With a grain of salt on the “conquer.” Survived might be closer. Grumpy did a nice post-game write-up Sunday night, so we’ll let him carry the ball here: The defense looked very good at

Let’s See What We Got

The 2019 NFL season is at last upon us. The 49ers did a good (or lucky) job of negotiating the roster cut down weekend, not losing anybody they wanted. Of course, it helped that nobody else wanted any of the

49ers 27, Chiefs 17

Jimmy Garoppolo quieted the restless 49er masses Saturday night in Kansas City, turning in a solid performance while playing the entire first half. He was a bit ragged on the first drive, then settled down and threw some beautiful passes.

49ers 24, Broncos 15

Well, that didn’t  inspire a lot of optimism for 49er fans. Jimmy Garoppolo’s five game tour de force at the end of the 2017 season looks like a distant memory now. His performance against Denver Monday night was flat out

49ers 17, Cowboys 9

18 for 216 yards. Not bad, if you’re a QB. But we’re not talking about yards gained. No, those were yards  lost – to penalties. Yes, the 49ers were in midseason form Saturday night, gaining 339 forwardly and 216 backwardly.

The Expendables Game

The 49ers kick off their exhibition season this Saturday night against the Cowboys, who, I might mention, have not been to a Super Bowl in 24 years. Not one Title Game, either. Loooooooooozzzzers!!! So, just when you think the world

Time for Some Ws

The long offseason is finally, mercifully concluded. The lads have put on the pads and now get down to the business of impressing a skeptical fan base. To do that, for starters, they’ll need to clean up their act in

Junky Alert

The third season  of the Kyle Shanahan Show will begin airing next week. As usual, the first four episodes will be meaningless drivel whose only purpose will be to familiarize us fans with the new cast of characters who will be

Training Camps will be opening across the NFL in the next couple of weeks and another season will drag out of bed and face the dawn. Patriot fans can book their playoff reservations immediately for yet another free ride to

Four Part Harmony

The first part of the offseason deals with hopes and needs (FA and the Draft). The second part features high (or low) expectations (a whole lot of bullshit). Then there’s part three, Training Camp and Preseason, when expectations are diluted
