Blame and Fortune

The election is over, the World Series is over, the Bye Week is over. Time to return to those thrilling days of yesteryear. Hi yo, 49ers, away! I can kind of see Jim Harbaugh riding around the West in a

Darkness at the Break of Noon

Okay, fellow blogpulsive disorders, it’s time once again for the annual NFL Reality Show predictions. Get out those chin scratchers and hmmm mullers and make a wild, hair-brained guess, gussied up as expertise. What will the 49ers’ record be for

Tecksus Ecksabission

The 49ers travel to Houston to play the Texans Saturday night. We all know what that means — COOTIES!!! Fortunately, Houston isn’t Dallas, so the cooties aren’t super-sized, smelly, drooling, brain dead, road kill vermin. Just small, annoying, clueless, windshield

OTA Week III of IV

The boys will be back at it again today, whatever “it” is. A closely guarded state secret, mostly. Then again, what’s there to reveal about practices? They got the blocking sleds, the little pads and cones that guys do the

Barking on a Corner

We all have our squabbles and quibbles about various players on the 49ers, with some fellows probably more prone to squabbilifying than others due to the testicle shrinking weather conditions of the upper Yukon — but, hey, I’m no doctor!

Dream Teams

NFL teams are all holding their rookie minicamps these days (the 49ers’ begins Friday), and hope blooms recklessly in the hearts of fans everywhere. Every team had a “killer draft,” it’s players are all “vastly improved,” and it’s coaches are

Leftover Stew

Free Agency 2012 burned up its drama in about ten days. By Friday of last week, the top headliners had all been signed. Over the next few weeks, the off Broadway guys will be trickling in hither and yon throughout

Yawning Exercises

A couple more anticlimactic days and we can finally close the book on the 2011 NFL season. And turn our attention to … golf. At least Jim Harbaugh will, since he’ll be teeing it up at Pebble Beach next week.

The Future, The Past, The Guillotine

The 2012 Offseason is now open for business and the wonderful players on the 2011 49er team are no longer Our Boys, but our chess pawns. Sorry, guys. It’s a cruel business. Unless you’re a star, which we wish you

Mensa Members Only

The Outsider likes to spoof former 49er head coach Mike Nolan because it’s fun and it always riled up the Igloo Man who has evidently departed the premises. But, with Tuesday’s Pro Bowl announcements, Nolan’s last draft here, the 2007

Champagne Brunch

Back to work week for our intrepid 49er lads who tasted defeat last Thursday for the first time since mid-September. Even in defeat, however, Dame Fortune remained kind to the team by sneaking into Seattle on Sunday and inducing the

Heaven Can Wait

The hometown crowd will not be praying for victory this Sunday against the Cleveland Browns. No, those knee callouses will have plenty of time to dissipate now. 49er fans will be expecting a rout. We might indeed get one, but

Airing It Out

The 49ers have played one game of the 2011 NFL season. Which they won. It doesn’t seem like much, but last year at this time, they had lost that first game, lost it badly, and the season quickly spiraled out

Nots Worth Forest

The 49ers got some good news Tuesday, as both Michael Crabtree and Braylon Edwards were cleared to play — Crabtree from the PUP list and Edwards from the Commissioner’s doghouse. Also cleared was Frank Gore’s disrespected heart, as the workhorse

One Weak Wonders

The Great 2011 Free Agency Manhunt enters its seventh day this morning and a football starved world has come out of hiding to gush and moan for six solid days. The Eagles and Jets have generated the most buzz, but

Defense of the Realm

In the previous post, this knothole peeper suggested that the 49ers’ success or failure in 2011 depended on the improved performance of the defense, which finished 2010 ranked 16th in the league. This observation was immediately and viciously attacked by

Freezer Burn

I have never frozen to death, at least that I can remember, but the gradual numbing of the mind towards reality associated with that form of croaking must feel something like waiting out this endless, empty offseason. At a certain

110% vs 29%

Double standards are all the rage in the 21st Century. It’s pretty much how business and governments operate these days. This past week we are seeing this lopsided couplet at work in the NFL. It’s common to hear players talking

CSI: Blogosphere, USA

As pointed out here by a Patriots fan Sunday (and expounded on by our foreign correspondent), Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis said the crime rate would rise if the lockout went on too long. I had been thinking that same

The Dog Ate My Alarm Clock

Okay. Here’s why I was late to work today. I went to a wedding Sunday for one of my nephews. Weddings are interesting on one level because they mix together two separate family structures and roots in one room where

Read My Lips

So much for an early ruling on the NFLPA’s request for an injunction on the owners’ lockout. There’s a new judge on the case, a woman named Susan Richard Nelson, who set the hearing date for April 6. Who knows
