Divisional Round

Defense trumped offense in the NFC Divisional round, while offense stomped defense in the AFC. It’s a strange year. The Jaguars were known for their defense during the season, but gave up 44 points to the 49ers in the next

Wild Card Weak End

The first wave of pretenders were tossed aside over the weekend. The Rams, Chiefs, Bills, and Panthers all swung and missed. And see you next year. Of the four losers, only the Panthers had a realistic hope of getting to

49ers 34, Rams 13

The Rams laid down like dogs, to quote possibly the only memorable thing Phil Simms ever said. With 17 substitutions to their starting lineup, they were no match for the rejuvenated 49ers, who easily swamped the B squad from L.A.

49ers 44, Jaguars 33

The 49ers ran their late season winning streak to four games Sunday, beating the Jaguars and improving their record to 5-10. Before the game started, the Rams beat the Titans, which clinched the AFC South for Jacksonville and the NFC

49ers 25, Titans 23

It appears the 49ers have finally located a QB. In three games as the starter, Jimmy Garoppolo has been virtually unstoppable. He’s had two 300+ yard passing games, an almost extinct achievement this century. Two 4th quarter game winning drives

49ers 26, Texans 16

It took 45 games, but the post-Harbaugh 49ers have finally won two consecutive games! It’s probably no coincidence that both winning efforts were conducted by newly acquired QB Jimmy Garoppolo, who appears to have wisely used his three and a

49ers 15, Bears 14

The 49ers dominated the hapless Bears Sunday in Chicago, having a TOP edge of 38 to 21, a first down advantage of 23 to 8, 388 to 147 net yards lead, and a whopping 73 to 38 lead in offensive

It’s Been Real

For the third consecutive year, the 49ers will travel to Chicago late in the season for a game against the Bears. The Third Annual Loser Litmus Test Game. Three years ago, then HC Jim Tomsula was handed a fluke OT

Seahawks 24, 49ers 13

The 49ers’ massive one game winning streak finally came to an end Sunday in Santa Clara, as they wheezed to defeat against the Seattle Seahawks. The team conducted a spirited battle of nothingness in the first quarter, then the Seahawks

View From the Bottom

The 2017 NFL season is slipping by quickly and we’re down to our last six games. The 49ers have improved statistically from last year’s team, with the offense improving from somewhere near dead last to 23rd in the league. The

49ers 31, Giants 21

Rookie HC Kyle Shanahan finally got his first win Sunday, trouncing the hapless New York Giants. Rookie QB CJ Beathard also got his first win, while enjoying the rare treat of a clean pocket and a break from getting pounded

Cardinals 20, 49ers 10

The Cardinals and 49ers met for the second time this season and the results were pretty much the same. A deadly boring contest which Arizona won. 49er fans were apparently expecting this sort of performance, as the stadium was only

It’s a Mad World

So, in with Jimmy Garappolo, out with Kirk Cousins. And, for his 0-6 efforts, Brian Hoyer goes from worst to first. Reminds me of David Baas, the O-line guy who did squat here for five years, then went to the

Eagles 33, 49ers 10

What can I say? Another fun day in 49erville, as the boys ran their record to a clean 0-8, doggedly keeping pace with the Cleveland Browns in the empty barrel division. The 49ers are getting better and better at getting

First vs Worst

The 49ers travel to Philadelphia this weekend for what will probably be a systematic and thorough disembowelment. The Eagles have the best record in the NFC and unless they fall apart down the stretch in a typical Philly meltdown, they

Cowboys 40, 49ers 10

The 49ers broke out of their streak of just barely losing Sunday by stepping back into the comfortable and familiar role of getting their butts walloped. Not that there weren’t some “if they had just …” moments to lighten the

Washington 26, 49ers 24

Another week, another last second loss. The 49ers have developed an uncanny ability to almost, but not quite, win. Perhaps they will soon develop an uncanny ability to almost, but not quite, lose. It might have to wait a couple

Colts 26, 49ers 23

For the fourth straight week, the 49ers lost a game by three points or less — and in the final moments of play. 12-9, 41-39, 18-15, and now 26-23. They’ve become the Steve DeBergs of the NFL, with Brian Hoyer

Cardinals 18, 49ers 15

The 49ers and Cardinals played a seesaw OT yawner in Arizona Sunday, but the end result was the same as the previous week’s seesaw donnybrook. Another loss. The Niners have played three straight games against their division opponents and lost

Back to You, Ed

NFL season: Take Two. Let’s try this again. Where were we? 0-3 and dead last in the NFC West. Next up, at Arizona. This would normally be an automatic 0-4, but the Cardinals seem to have fallen apart about as

Rams 41, 49ers 39

Wow. That was unexpected. After two straight defense-oriented yawners, the 49ers and Rams held an old fashioned offensive barn burner. Easily the most entertaining Niner game in years. The game was as evenly matched as you can get. Each team

Seahawks 12, 49ers 9

The earth shook. The mountains trembled. Zeus fondled his lightning bolt. Time stood still. And there it was. With eleven minutes left in the 4th quarter in Seattle, the 49ers took a 9-6 lead. Zounds! Then Russell Wilson said, “Screw
