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

Fox Hunt

The 49ers travel to Chicago this weekend to resume their quest for a perfect 0-8 road record for 2015. They’re at 0-5 now, so the tension for perfection is building with each failed effort to succeed. Or is it each

The Vultures Are Circling

The 49er players have now firmly taken a back seat to the 49er front office in terms of scrutiny and speculation. The rest of the season will be less and less about whether the team wins or loses games, and

So Near and Yet So Far

Let’s see: the 49ers have lost five in a row to the Seattle Seahawks. Of course, all those losses came with Colin Kaepernick at QB. This Sunday, Blaine Gabbert will be at the helm, attempting to end the string of

Recycling Center

Blaine Gabbert. Not exactly a power-packed name. Kind of dribbles off your tongue like a fumbled hike from the center. But, Blaine it is. And he has one sure thing going for him: he’s not Colin Kaepernick. We’ll find out

Hidden Agenda

The 49ers travel to St. Louis this weekend for what might be the last time, if rumors of the Rams moving to Los Angeles prove accurate. The Rams are in second place in the NFC West at 3-3. That’s right

Battle of the Suckitudes

The 49er players are treating their loss to the Giants as some sort of team victory and a sign that their fortunes are on the way up. That illusion has a chance to be bolstered this weekend with an actual

Dumping Ground

It was a nation wide dump on Colin Kaepernick week. It’s gotten so bad, even your faithful steely-eyed scribbler has begun to feel sorry for the poor kid. If he stinks it up again in New York next Sunday night,

Big Ass Parade

49er QB Colin Kaepernick laid a huge ass egg last Sunday in Arizona. He’s taken a big ass beating from the press all week because of it. An agonizing event like that can break a guy. Or it can be

Own It, Fix It, Move On

Big game this weekend. As big as it gets in Palookaville, that is. Are the 49ers closer to the marginally decent team we saw against Minnesota? Or nearer the fiasco bunch featured in Pittsburgh? Are they a 3 win team

49er Follies

Normally, with your team out of the playoff race, it would be a good time to look at some of the rookies and backups. Unfortunately, those are the guys who have already been playing for the 49ers lately. It seems

Custer’s Last Stand

Tuning into the Seattle game this Sunday has all the allure to a 49er fan as a trip to a Third World dentist. Unless you’re a sadomasochist, this is not going to be a pleasant experience. As I see it,

Last Ride of the Harbaugh Gang?

Back to football for the moment. There are four games left, they might be interesting, and they might be all we get to see until next August. May as well try to enjoy them, too. We have no idea what

Manhood Test

Here comes Seattle. If the 49ers beat them, they’ll be alive for a playoff berth and we’ll have a week and a half to gloat. If they beat us, we’ll have ten months of agony and upheaval staring us in

Washington Circus Comes To Town

Washington comes to town this weekend to remind us all that, whatever our problems are or are perceived to be, some franchises have infinitely worse crap to deal with. This game should be a walkover, but the 49ers don’t do

Trap Game Warning

Most of us thought we’d be talking this week about a 4-5 team whose playoff chances were dangling by their last flimsy thread, needing to win out to get into the postseason. I might have led off this piece by

Bourbon Street Blues

What a depressing week. Losing to the Rams, at home, is always depressing, but this time it was also embarrassing. The loss to a team that had no business even being in the game set off tremors to the franchise.

Once More, With Gusto

Aldon Smith did not return early from his nine game suspension this week, as many surmised he would. But, who cares? We don’t need him this week. After all, we’re playing the Rams! Again! Next week, however, either Aldon is
