Packers 33, 49ers 30

The 49ers redeemed themselves as a legitimate NFL entity before a national audience Monday night in Green Bay, even though the game oozed away from them in the final four minutes. Fans who enjoy good defense saw nothing much of

Crossroads

The bloom is off the rose. The honeymoon is over. The sky is falling – once again. Yes, folks, after a brief vacation in the Kool-Aid tropics, Gloom and Doom have resumed their lengthy stay in the House of York.

Cardinals 28, 49ers 18

The 49ers won the battle for last place in the NFC West Sunday in Santa Clara by drubbing the Arizona Cardinals for three hours while cleverly keeping themselves off the scoreboard in the process of this complete butt whipping. It

It’s In The Cards

The 49ers have been hit hard by injuries lately, but it hasn’t affected the quality of their poor play. The backup players have proved to be nearly as semi-talented as the starters they have replaced. That would be good news,

Chargers 29, 49ers 27

Sunday’s 49ers looked a lot like last year’s 49ers. Gritty, competitive, never-say-die, back-and-forth nail-biter but short end of the stick.¬† Just enough positive play to stay in the game and just enough mistakes to lose. CJ Beathard filled in admirably

Respect, Just a Little Bit

Gloomy week in 49erville. HC Kyle Shanahan must be feeling a little snake bit these days. Every time he brings in a player to help the team, that player ends up on IR. If this keeps up, players are going

Chiefs 38, 49ers 27

The 49ers season swirled down the toilet Sunday afternoon against the Kansas City Chiefs when late in the game QB Jimmy Garoppolo recklessly went for a couple more yards instead of stepping out of bounds. As he planted his left

Kansas City Star, That’s What He Are

At the beginning of the season, nearly everyone figured the 49ers’ record after two games would be 1-1. There were a couple of guys who felt differently, but they have now clunked to the bottom of the “Prognostications” list, where

49ers 30, Lions 27

As expected, the 49ers rebounded from their loss in Minnesota to easily barely handle the toothless scrappy Detroit Lions. After controlling the game for three quarters, the Niners held a 17 point lead with 11 minutes to go in the

Here, Kitty, Kitty

The 49ers catch a break this week, as the awful Detroit Lions come to town, fresh off a week one 48-17 thrashing by the New York Jets. A rather inauspicious debut for Lions’ HC Matt Patricia, who begins his post-Belichick

Vikings 24, 49ers 16

Jimmy Garoppolo is human after all. His NFL unbeaten record came to a crashing halt Sunday in Minnesota, as the Vikings handed Jimmy his first taste of professional defeat after seven consecutive wins. Minnesota QB Kirk Cousins played the kind

Opening Bell

It’s one week until the gates open on the 2018 NFL season. Which means it’s time to throw our brains on the table and cough up our annual predictions of what the 49ers’ record will be this year. As usual,

Colts 23, 49ers 17

The 49ers cleverly disguised their offensive juggernaut Saturday night, pretending to hit a brick wall against the lowly AFC South cellar dwelling Indianapolis Colts. You can almost hear the snores emanating from the game plan rooms of DCs around the

Texans 16, 49ers 13

The first quarter of Saturday’s game in Texas was interesting. The rest of the game, not so much. Marquise Goodwin has clearly become the number one WR on the 49ers and Trent Taylor is the go to guy on third

All the World’s a Stage

The first exhibition game is in the books. Ready to be moved to the basement. Next to the boiler. Ready for the winter fires. Just kidding. Nobody has books anymore, or boilers, for that matter. Except in movies where mob

And Away We Go

So, Thursday night, 49ers against the Cowboys. Two franchises in search of their former glory. Best guess is that neither team will be reaching the Super Bowl this year, but one or both might make the playoffs. Or neither. The

Almost There

49er Training Camp is a week old and the good news is there have been no serious injuries … yet. There’s the annual¬†Arik Armstead “issue” – this year it’s his hamstring, last year his hand, the year before that his

The Gauntlet

Welcome back 2018 49ers. Much will be expected of you this coming season. The past three years, nothing was expected and that is precisely what you delivered, finishing dead last in the NFC West all three years. At minimum, the

Caveat Emptor

Last call for NFL knuckleheads to crash their careers and wind up in the mug shot room. This time next week, they’ll all be back in the loving arms of coaches and baby sitters, safe from themselves. If the NFLPA

Coming Attractions

Less than three weeks until the 49ers’ Training Camp opens and we start separating the men from the boys. One of my favorite times of the year. All the OTA standouts and over-hyped draft picks get their first taste of

There’s a Bar Up Above

Five more weeks of the offseason before we begin to see if Kyle Shanahan can emulate Jim Harbaugh by taking a 6-10 team and turning it into a 13-3 playoff team. Some might say that’s not a fair contest, since

One Toke Over the Line

The OTAs and minicamp have concluded and the players have the next six weeks off. Most will go home and have backyard barbecues and some will pose for mug shots. The 49ers are holding their breath that Reuben Foster does
