The Hour of the Turk Draws Near

One last practice game Thursday night before the Santa Clara Titanic sets off on its 2016 cruise. It might also be the last game of Colin Kaepernick‘s NFL career. The game against San Diego will be played mainly by members

Return of the Prodigal Son

One more preseason game before we can forget about preseason games even though there will be one more preseason game to endure. Friday’s game against the Packers is mainly meaningful because it will mark the first time since the middle

Not Good Enough

We’re finally down to the last dregs of the offseason. One more garbage game to go before the San Francisco 49ers become NFL roadkill. The team sent 15 nobodies packing on Monday and will say good-bye to another 22 after

Niners Anonymous

Third exhibition game coming up Saturday against the Broncos, and probably the only real glimpse we’ll get at what kind of team we have before the action begins for real. Not that we don’t already know what kind of team

Dickhead Owners Game

The Cowboys come to town Sunday for exhibition game number two. This should provide an excellent opportunity for Jed York to get some tips from Jerry Jones on the fine art of ego-driven self-destruction. The first string offense only played

Turn on the Bubble Machine

The trade that sent AJ Jenkins to Kansas City in exchange for Jon Baldwin just about wrapped up the wide receiver competition. It looks like the 49ers will be keeping Anquan Boldin, Quinton Patton, Marlon Moore, Kyle Williams, and Baldwin.

Ready to Rumble

Tonight at Candlestick Park, Mike Singletary resumes his quest to become the greatest Head Coach who ever lived. Next step for Mike, convince an owner to hire him as a Head Coach. Minnesota deliberated briefly this offseason about promoting Mike

49ers Win Scrub Bowl 17-14

The 49ers closed out the 2010 Exhibition Season by beating the Chargers 17-14 in a largely empty Candlestick Park stadium. There were no initial reports of any serious injuries. Whew!!! The emergence of Phillip Adams has got to be the

Raiders Still Suck!

Nice try, Raiders. Har har hearty har har. Those evil little boys tried everything. They juiced the play clock, they drained the playbook, they begged and prayed — all to no avail as the 49ers treated them like a light

Raiders Suck!!

The 49ers play an exhibition game against the Raiders Saturday, and yesterday I paid the Raiders the ultimate disrespect by deeming them too insignificant to waste any words describing their woefulness or even summoning any concern that they were on

CSI: Blog Monday

Next week’s 49er game against the Raiders is the third exhibition game, traditionally the one that is viewed as a tuneup for the regular season. It is numero uno in order of significance of the four insignificant practice games. The

49ers 15, Farvettes 10

While watching the Bret Farve telethon Sunday night, I was surprised to see a 49er exhibition game spliced into the fawning endeavor. How annoying. What was NBC thinking? There must have been at least a hundred more facial expressions that

2010 TC XIII: G & W Preview

Brian Westbrook appeared in the 49er backfield at Thursday’s practice, paired with Frank Gore. It’s possible this was a sop to the fans who were attending the last open practice of Training Camp, a sort of “look what we got

2010 TC XII: Scratching Post

Smith Haters, Inc. had a wild celebration on the 49er blogosphere Wednesday as Jimmy Raye announced that Nate Davis would finally get some playing time against actual NFL players, instead of the Training Camp fodder he has so far performed

2010 TC XI: Oopsie Doopsie

Last Friday, this site proclaimed the end of Training Camp, complete with a Eulogy. FAIL! Aside from shoddy reporting, that effort was a throwback post, recalling the days long ago when the 49ers “broke camp” after the first two weeks

Fortunate Follies

The 49ers have been a bit lucky in recent days. Some might ask, “What are you talking about, Mr. Skeebaloney? We’ve had two guys flake out on us in the past week, wasting a 2008 1st round pick and a

Ready, Set, Splat!

We wait seven months and 14 days to see the San Francisco 49ers again trot out onto the field and Michael Robinson promptly fumbles on the very first play. I was laughing for ten minutes after that pratfall. Then the
