The Bust Maker

The 49ers haven’t come right out and admitted it, but their inactions during the Free Agency period have made it clear they have no intention of trying to be competitive this year. They are not even faking it. The 2016

Standing Pat

Two weeks into the FA period, it looks like GM Trent Baalke has concluded that last year’s 5-11 record wasn’t the least bit his fault. No, the roster’s fine. The record was all the fault of Jim Tomsula and Colin

Late to the Party

The first week of Free (but expensive) Agency roared fat over the middle of the plate and 49er GM Trent Baalke didn’t even take the bat off his shoulder. Steeeeeeeeeeeeeeerike One! Most of the good teams in the league didn’t

Tour de Farce

Chip Kelly got a whirlwind tour of the 49ers’ dysfunctional front office last week. First, the 49ers went public with how excited they were to have Colin Kaepernick on the roster come April 1. Kaepernick’s agents then went public with

Depleted Roster

It’s NFL Combine week, which means that February is down to its last useless week with a schedule of fittingly useless events that showcase certain peculiar athletic skills of a huge pile of college boys. All of this is a

Bring In The Next One

Here we are again, embarked on a world wide search for the 49ers next head coach. Jed York dismissed the idea, at his presser, that the team would have trouble attracting a good coach. This was an attempt to evade

Let the Games Begin

The 2015 NFL season is finally upon us. Fittingly, the 49ers and Vikings will be the last teams to play on the opening weekend, scheduled for the late game of a Monday Night football doubleheader. Jim Harbaugh never lost an

The Great Divide

It’s been a long time since the blogosphere was this polarized. Not since the pre-Harbaugh days of Alex Smith. Heading into the 2015 season, bloggers either think the franchise is just fine, or they think it’s become a laughingstock. There’s

Really Excited

Oakland has a championship. San Francisco has a championship. Santa Clara has Jed York. Moving right along, I put on my 1994 Super Bowl Champion 49ers’ T-shirt over the weekend, still going strong after 21 years of careful use, and

Can Anybody Play This Game?

June is here, which means three more months until the grand opening of The Return to Mediocrity Era. Featuring an ever evolving cast of entirely forgettable coaches and players. Hip hip kerplunk! Today, we’ll look at the 2012 Draft class,

Too Much Noise

There’s been a lot of pixels devoted to unraveling the hatchet job Jed York did to Jim Harbaugh, but York also undermined GM Trent Baalke, by torpedoing his choice for the 49ers’ new HC. And some people wonder why there’s

Stepper Uppers Needed

Jed York checked his mouth into rehab after the owners’ meetings last week, so there has been some quiet time these days. Pity. What will we do for amusement? Poor young Jed. A year ago, he was the toast of

Baalke’s Decade

With the departures of Patrick Willis, Ray McDonald, Michael Crabtree, and Frank Gore, the Mike Nolan/Scot McCloughan draft era is just about wrapped up. There are only two guys left: Joe Staley and Vernon Davis. And only one FA signing

Spring Equiknocks

The 49ers hired a new head coach after the 2014 season, so they can begin their offseason workout program earlier than other more stable franchises. The first workout begins in two weeks, on April 6. It’s entirely possible that we’ll

Rain Drops Keep Fallin’

It’s probably safe to say that all our draft picks this year will make the team. They might even BE the team, if the current rate of defections continues. The 49ers finally had a good day on Wednesday. Nothing happened.

Out From The Shadows

It’s unlikely we’ll ever know how much of a role GM Trent Baalke played in decimating the 49ers’ coaching staff at the end of the 2014 season. There’s no doubt about Jed York‘s role. He wasn’t clever enough to disguise

Hit The Road, Jack

With one week left before the start of Free Agency, the 49ers have yet to re-sign any of their soon to be unrestricted players. All of these fellows are more likely to get better offers from other teams than what

Baalkan Island

For the next two months, it will be GM Trent Baalke‘s turn to show us what he can do. Free agency begins in two weeks, followed by the draft in late April. Everyone seems to be clamoring for a fast

Combine Combo

The NFL Combine is underway in Indianapolis. In other news, … Head coaches from all 32 teams will be in attendance, and 31 of them will be urging each other to trample the 49ers this year. After all, if the

Perception Vs Reality

The 49ers have finally introduced their new coaching staff. Most of them can now disappear into the fine print of the team’s hierarchy, until such time as we need to haul them out to blame them for one thing or

Farewell Parties

Just over three weeks until the start of Free Agency. Hopefully, that will give the 49ers’ FO enough time to finish assembling an entire coaching staff, or at least parading them out there in a formal introduction. But, maybe Jim

As the QB Turns

The Super Bowl next Sunday will be a win-lose proposition for 49er fans. One of these despised franchises will have to lose the game, but one of them will have to win it, too. We’ll either see Bill Belichick and
