Back to You, Ed

NFL season: Take Two. Let’s try this again. Where were we? 0-3 and dead last in the NFC West. Next up, at Arizona. This would normally be an automatic 0-4, but the Cardinals seem to have fallen apart about as

Potential vs Reality

Okay. Enough of the foreplay. Next Sunday the Kyle Shanahan Era officially begins. Good luck, KS. You’ve got big shoes to fill (the Jim Harbaugh Era), and tiny shoes to flick aside (the Jim Tomsula/Chip Kelly Eras). And, of course,

Last Slice of Humble Pie

Another season has slipped away, taking with it the 49ers pride, dignity, heritage, pants, shoes, jockstraps, NFL relevance — you name it, they lost it. The team closes out their season Sunday, at home against the Seahawks, who have beaten

When Bums Collide

The 49ers have lost 13 straight. The Rams have lost 5 in a row. Yes, the folks in Los Angeles will be streaming into the stadium this Saturday. After all, everybody likes a good train wreck and this game involves

Another Trip to the Woodshed

Last Sunday, Atlanta laid such a relentless whipping on the Rams that it sent LA’s HC Jeff Fisher out the door and into the unemployment line. Next Sunday, the Falcons will quite likely administer the same sort of beat down

Olfactory Assault

After making debacle all down they legs and all over they feets in Chicago, the 49ers stank their way back to Santa Clara and began preparing for the equally stanky New York Jets this coming Sunday. These two franchises have

Wasn’t It a Long Way Down

Congratulations to the 2016 49ers. In the 68th year of the franchise, you guys have accomplished the awesomely difficult task of losing ten straight games, the most in team history. No mean feat. To think, only four years ago, this

Aiming For Infamy

Some good games on tap for Thanksgiving this year. Minnesota vs Detroit for NFC North supremacy, Dallas vs Washington for the NFC East, and Pittsburgh vs Indianapolis for two teams trying to stay alive in crappy divisions. The 49ers won’t

Nothing But Nyet

The evil New England Patriots come to town this Sunday, looking to beat up on the local boys. Chances are better than good they’ll do exactly that. The defense finally stopped getting traumatized by opposing teams’ rushing attacks last Sunday.

Journey to the Center of Nowhere

The San Francisco 49ers set the franchise’s 21st Century gold standard of stinkitude in 2004, finishing the season with a 2-14 record. That was the last year of Troy Donahue‘s inept GM indifference and John York‘s visibility as the face

Keep the Streak Alive

The New Orleans Saints come calling this Sunday, no doubt looking eagerly forward to trashing the 49ers’ woeful defense. The Saints’ defense is no top drawer outfit, either, but if the game is a shootout, who you gonna call: Drew

Worst a Shires Tilt

Here it is! All you washed up QB and/or Trent Baalke fans, this is the game for you! Finally, a game the 49ers might actually win. The Tampa Bay Bucs travel cross country, dragging their 2-3 record with them. 3,000

Return of the Jerk

The 49ers are five games into the 2016 season and already the year is a lost cause. So, why not re-insert a lost cause at QB? At this point that is just cosmetic whimsy. It’s GM Trent Baalke‘s hand picked

And the Least Shall Be Last

The 49ers and Cardinals meet tonight in a battle for the basement in the NFC West. That the Niners are engaged in this sort of tawdry affair is no surprise, but Arizona has been a surprise disappointment thus far in

Lame Owners’ Bowl

The Jeckyll and Hyde 49ers return home this weekend to play the Cowboys, hoping the Doctor is in and not the other guy. The howls have already begun to yank Blaine Gabbert and try one of the other bust QBs

Dink and Dunker Special

The 49ers haven’t won a game in Seattle since the 2011 season. They swept the Seahawks that year, split with them the next two years, and were skunked in 2014 and 2015. Still, our boys have a golden opportunity to

Carolina In My Mind

The 49ers travel to North Carolina this weekend to throw themselves under the Panthers’ playoff bus on Sunday. At least, that’s the general view around the league and in Las Vegas. Apparently, the blow out win over the Rams did

Year of the Underdog

The 49ers are the underdog in next Monday night’s game, just like they currently are for every game they play this year. But season opening games are notoriously unpredictable and rarely an indication of how the rest of the year

It Didn’t Play in Peoria

One more game until the most anticipated match-up of the entire season: Jed York vs. Bay Area Media. The last time York faced the media, nearly a year ago, he was broiled alive. And that was before the 2015 season

Motown Meh

The 49ers travel to Detroit this weekend for a game that has very little significance. If the Niners win, they’ll fall below the Lions in the 2016 Draft slotting. If Detroit wins, it will give the Niners a 1-7 road

Fun House

The on-again off-again 49ers have a home game this Sunday. That usually means they’re on. The game is against the powerhouse Bengals, though, so maybe they’ll be off. However, Bengals’ QB Andy Dalton is injured and won’t play, so maybe

Streaky Clean

Twelve games into the 2015 season, the 49ers have yet to win so much as two games in a row. They’ve lost four in a row, and have a couple of two game losing streaks, but all four victories this
