So Far, So Good

New GM John Lynch had a fairly sensational debut in his inaugural Draft, collaborating seamlessly with new HC Kyle Shanahan. They worked so well together, you could almost feel Jed York itching to jump in and take credit for their

2017 Draft

Day One Not a bad first day for the 49ers and greenhorn GM John Lynch‘s inaugural Draft. Lynch netted two defensive studs who should start immediately and provide needed improvement to the D-line pass rush (Solomon Thomas) and the ILB

49er 2015 Draft Recap

The results are in and we now know the names of the ten players who will waste their first year in the NFL learning schemes and systems from lousy coaches who will be fired in a year or two. Enjoy

2014 Draft Recap

Hats off to 49ers GM Trent Baalke, who put on an amazing show at the 2014 NFL Draft. Maybe he was juiced up by all the offseason talk about who had more value to the franchise — him or Jim

2014 Draft: Day Two

The 49ers were quiet on Day One of the 2014 Draft, but Day Two was a whole other matter. GM Trent Baalke made 5 trades up and down the board and one completely outside the board, netting 5 players and

2014 Draft: Day One

The 49ers stood pat at pick #30 in round one of the 2014 Draft and selected small school safety Jimmie Ward. There were no shouts of joy from the assembled multitudes at the team’s draft party HQ. Not much sis-boom-bah

Class of 2013

The 49ers had three distinct areas of need (D-line, FS, and TE) going into the 2013 Draft and they addressed all three areas in the first two days. Whether the dresses added improve the comeliness of the product to the

Restocked, Reloaded, & Ready

The three day mini-vacation from the All About Alex show has come and gone. The 49ers added depth and competition with their five Day 3 draft picks and loaded up for next year’s draft, too. How Belichickian. But for this

It’s A Boy!

As suggested Thursday morning, the 49ers once again selected “Who?!” with their first round pick. If this version of Who works as well as the previous Who model, the team will have the second coming of Nobody. I’m ransacking through

Free Agent Blues

The UFL conducted its draft Monday, mostly in obscurity. It’s fair to say that many of the guys this league drafted would normally be in the UDFA pool and the NFL would be swooping in to sign them this week.

Ten New, One Old

The first draft of the Trent Baalke/Jim Harbaugh era is now in the books. National opinion of their collaborative effort was a resounding meh. The folks at 4949 Centennial Blvd., however, seemed positively giddy at what they had wrought. The

We Want Football!

The football blogosphere returned to normal on Thursday after a long, dark winter of discontent. For 49er fans, this return to action was marked by a resounding “WTF!” For Roger Goodell, this return was marked by some severe ass booing

2010 Draft Redux VI

Continuing with our recap of the fate of the pre-draft blogosphere hotties, which seems to have cured the insomnia difficulties of this site’s readership, the Lions took local RB Jahvid Best at pick #30. Best was a small, but explosive

2010 Draft Redux V

Instead of continuing a choice by choice recap of the rest of the 2010 NFL Draft, I altered my mind (through years of practice and a little help from my friends) and thought I’d just do some highlights of the

2010 Draft Redux IV

With the 16th pick of the 2010 Draft, the Titans took yet another D-lineman, Derrick Morgan. Yawn. Their pass defense was 2nd worst in the league last year and they only dumped the QB 32 times, so this pick makes

Draft Redux II

The 2010 draft intrigue began with the 5th pick by the Chiefs of Eric Berry. The first four picks were pretty much known to everyone in the blogosphere and even to those who get their football news at the bottom

Thunder vs Lightfoot

A certain die hard segment of 49er fans will probably never fully embrace the brute force trauma offense of Mike Singletary’s vision. There remains in these reluctant skulls the magical memories of the Bill Walsh era, when our offense was

The Mud List

The list of players/coaches who routinely get the most wet glops of dirt heaved at them from the 49er fans has been noticeably shrinking, both in number and decibels. Two years ago, the top targets of disdain were Mike Nolan,

Third & One, Baby

This 2010 Draft is the most intriguing 49ers draft in many years. Three guys were drafted with the initial and specific task of converting short yardage 3rd & 4th down plays. One guy was drafted who can take the opposing
