It Can’t Happen Here

Lots of bodies flying off the shelves last week. The 49ers didn’t acquire any of them, and they lost Emmanuel Sanders and traded Deforest Buckner for the 13th pick in this Draft. Weaker on offense and defense. For now. Not much to fault

[ominous music]

The world has gotten a bit dangerous and weird since we last checked in. No NBA, no MLB, no March Madness. America is in the process of shutting down it looks like. And when it re-opens, who knows what it

Thumb Twiddling

Looks like we’ll be getting a 17 game season in a year or two, with an extra wild card team in each conference. And only the top seeded team in each conference will get a BYE week in the playoffs.

Segwe to 2020

The 2020 Combine is coming up later this month, which will get hearts fluttering with excitement for the draftniks among us. And for complete football junkies, the XFL is making another effort at forming a viable alternative to the NFL.

Perspective Detective

Last week was hard to digest. Tough for us 49er fans, and no doubt tougher for the team and coaches. But they get paid for their grief, and we don’t. Kyle Shanahan has been roasted a bit, while Andy Reid has

Chiefs 31, 49ers 20

The 49ers’ fairy tale season came to an ignominious end Sunday night in Miami, crushed to death at the fifty yard line as Jimmy Garoppolo stood motionless, unable or unwilling to throw the ball on fourth and ten with the season

Defense, Defense, Defense!

It’s blah, blah, blah week while we wait for next Sunday’s Super Bowl game. While it’s nice that the Niners and Chiefs are doing the yapping, and not some other team from the East Coast, it’s still a lot of

49ers 37, Packers 20

The 49ers made it look easy Sunday night, pounding their way to a 27-0 halftime lead and cruising to the finish line. There wasn’t a moment of real anxiety the entire game. The most laughable and yet telling stat of

Gloat Sandwich

The 49ers and Packers had a pretty good rivalry in the late ’90s, albeit a bit one sided. Brett Farve had their number and knocked them out of the playoffs in 1995, 1996, and 1997. The Niners finally beat him in

49ers 27, Vikings 10

When last we saw the 49ers, they were surviving by an inch after a second half defensive collapse that nearly derailed their season. They had also just finished five  consecutive nail-biter games, going 3-2. Saturday, however, they mercifully quit pissing around

Let’s Go Get A Ring

Okay, here we are again. Back in the playoffs, number one seed, and as good a chance as any team to advance to the Super Bowl. Not exactly what any of us envisioned at the start of the season, but

49ers 26, Seahawks 21

Sorry for the tardy game wrap up, guys. I was out of town for the weekend and didn’t get back until late Monday. The delay did give me a chance to spend quite a bit of time gloating shamelessly. I

49ers 34, Rams 31

The 49ers showed a championship  heart in their victory over the Rams on Saturday night, but not a championship talent level. They were outplayed for most of the game, and it took a brilliant defensive play by Fred Warner to steal

Falcons 29, 49ers 22

The 49ers backed into the playoffs Sunday, when the Rams got clobbered by Dallas. That they lost to the Falcons was disappointing, but in the end makes little difference in the standings. They still need to win the next two

Win and In

At one point early in the season, Jimmy Garoppolo had thrown for 7 TDs and 5 interceptions. Not heart warming numbers. Since then, he’s gone 19 and 6. Numbers almost exactly recorded by the QB in New England who’s had 20

49ers 48, Saints 46

Mark Bavaro, Marshawn Lynch, Roger Craig.  George Kittle bulled his way into NFL Beast Mode lore Sunday afternoon in New Orleans with a monster 39 yard catch and rumble with 39 seconds left in the game to pull the 49er butts out

Home Stretch

The number one seed in the playoffs went bye-bye this past weekend. At least for now. But it brings back into focus the only goal that seemed reasonable when the season started – making the playoffs at all. The 49ers

Ravens 20, 49ers 17

A great game between two great teams. The Ravens had the ball last and made one more play than the Niners, kicking the game winning field goal as time expired. The 49er defense showed why they’re the best in the

Game of the Year?

You’d have to go back to the early nineties to find the last time the 49ers started a season 10-1. They did so in 1990 and squared off with the Giants, who were also 10-1. The Niners won that one

49ers 37, Packers 8

Goodness. That was an unexpected butt kicking. I guess all those pundits who questioned the 49er defense because it hadn’t faced elite QBs are going to need  something new to find wrong with them. The first leg of the unholy

The Gauntlet

After three straight games against squirty QBs, the 49er front seven is probably relieved to face a normal pocket passer – even if it is the so-called top QB in the game. Aaron Rodgers can run a bit, but it isn’t

49ers 36, Cardinals 26

The 49ers squeezed out a win Sunday afternoon against the Cardinals, and guaranteed their first winning season since 2013. Early in the game, however, it looked more like they would be the first team in NFL history to win its
