The Turk Man Cometh

The NFL cutdown day is next Saturday afternoon. Final roster size remains the usual 53 players, but the practice squad has been expanded from ten players to 16, with six of those players able to be veterans who would not

Halfway to Maybe

A week and a half into training camp and the bodies are falling left and right. Probably a normal occurrence, but each year it seems worse than the previous year. Short term memory loss. Bodies were no doubt falling at

Knocking the Rust Off

Our loveable brutes strapped on the pads last Saturday. Now they have about three weeks to get ready for the season opener against the Cardinals. Jalen Hurd took the opportunity of the first practice to tear his ACL, which will put him

Bubble World Blabber

Most of the news lately has been which players are opting out of the 2020 season. That all ended, presumably, at last Thursday’s 1pm deadline. At this point, you’re either in or you’re out. Sixty-seven players took the out. For

Testing the Water

The NFL is tiptoeing back to work this week. Although “work” might be stretching the concept a bit. All the players will be doing this week is sitting for a virus probe, waiting in isolation for a couple of days,

The Expendables Game

The 49ers kick off their exhibition season this Saturday night against the Cowboys, who, I might mention, have not been to a Super Bowl in 24 years. Not one Title Game, either. Loooooooooozzzzers!!! So, just when you think the world

Time for Some Ws

The long offseason is finally, mercifully concluded. The lads have put on the pads and now get down to the business of impressing a skeptical fan base. To do that, for starters, they’ll need to clean up their act in

Junky Alert

The third season  of the Kyle Shanahan Show will begin airing next week. As usual, the first four episodes will be meaningless drivel whose only purpose will be to familiarize us fans with the new cast of characters who will be

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

Almost Time for Almost Football

With one week of practice in the books, the 49ers have lost two starters to injury — ILB Malcom Smith and LG Joshua Garnett. Smith is out for the year and Garnett for a month or so. Neither loss is

The Dulcet Tones of Pad Whacking

The Singletary Hill is back at the 49ers’ Training Camp, in the form of a 30 degree ramp. And right away, sending chills down the spine of every reasonably cognizant fan, video emerged of Jed York chubbing and huffing his

The Long Road Back

By this time next week, the pads will be on and the 2017 NFL season will be officially grunting with activity. When Jed York hired John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan, he mentioned the word “culture” about a thousand times. Restoring

Let the Games Begin

Less than a week until we get our first look at the 2016 49ers. Hopefully, it won’t dissuade us from continuing to watch them as the season unfolds. There hasn’t been any viewing competition in the Bay Area for the

Post Harbaugh, Take II

And so it begins. The Chip Kelly Era is underway. Kelly’s Eagles team last year, while “collapsing” to a 7-9 record after two straight 10-6 seasons, still finished 13th in points scored and 12th in yards — yardage stats that

TC Week Two

The first exhibition game is this Saturday against Houston. Which means we’ll have 49er football games to entertain us each week until January 3rd, when the season ends for our red and gold, or black and atrocious, warriors. Big year

TC Week One

Training Camp is underway and everyone is happier, everyone is faster, and everyone is better. Ah, TC bliss. There’s a lot of hyperbole emanating from camp now as the once mighty men try to psyche themselves up for the tenuous

Training Camp 2015

The 2014 offseason will close up shop this weekend, taking its rightful place among the darkest chapters in 49er history. A truly ghastly effort by the dirtbag young owner and an insult to 49er fans everywhere. Next up, two weeks

Coming Soon: The Not Harbaugh Era

The NFC West has one team that knows it will be in the playoffs, one team that assumes it will make the playoffs, and one team that hopes to make the playoffs. And one team that will be wildly enthusiastic

Job Listings

Only three more weeks before the bill starts coming due on Jed York‘s offseason catastrophe. Currently, there are four jobs up for grabs as we head into Training Camp: LDE, RCB, RG, and slot CB. The LDE winner will be

Visiting the Uglies

Sunday marked the end of life without football. R.I.P. hunk of shit dead air time. The 49ers tee it up Thursday night against the Ravens. Can’t wait to see Jewel Hampton blowing through holes opened up by Al Netter and
