Last Rehearsal For Opening Night

The 49ers appear to have sufficient depth at every position on the offense, but there are some nervous making areas on defense. The drop off from starter to backup at OLB and the safety positions is down right scary. It

The Model B Auto

It’s safe to say that most 49er fans are relatively pleased that Mike Nolan, Scot McCloughan, and Mike Singletary are no longer in the building at 4949 Centennial Blvd. It’s also safe to say that most 49er fans think the

New Staff, New Era

Jim Harbaugh has been putting together a pretty impressive staff this past week. On paper, anyway. Yesterday, one of the reputed top special teams coaches in the league, Brad Seely, left his job with the Browns to sign up with

R.I.P., 2010 (Beat It Kid, You Bother Me)

Happy New Year, Outsiders! And thanks for sticking with me during this pretty much all downhill season. May the coming year make being a 49er fan a lot more rewarding than it has been lately. I’d say it can’t get

Take Me To Your Leader

The 49ers will fly east today and spend Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in hotel rooms in a cold city a long way from home. The Rams will spend these days and eves at home with their wives and kids,

Hour of the Gong

Thanks for the well wishes, Outsiders. I’m back in the saddle, sporting one less tooth of an ever dwindling supply. It was a good, hard working tooth that had served me loyally through many thousands of happy and not so

The Fat Lady Is Dressed

The Seattle Seahawks ruined the end of the 49ers 2009 season and the beginning of this 2010 season. Sunday, they have a chance to ruin the end of the 2010 season, as well. That would be three straight ruinations and

Freudian Fumbles

Bear with me today, Outsiders, this post may get a little tortured (like our team might this weekend). Most 49er fans are aware that the team has what you might call some issues. Such as you might say stinking or

Don’t Even Think About It

When the season began, Monday night’s game against the Cardinals and the season ending game against the same team were thought to be the crucial games that would decide the NFC West championship. As it is, they are only crucial

Zombies or ZZzzzz …..

The blogs have been a bit quiet this past week. It’s difficult to tell if this is lingering apathy, exhausted anger, or careful optimism. Being a 49er fan has been no picnic this year. A draining experience, for sure. Any

Bye Bye, Baby

If recent history is any indication, the Denver Broncos should lose Sunday’s game in London. Denver usually starts fast and then, about mid-season, goes into a steep dive. Some suppose this is due to the initial advantage the team has

Team Goes East, Season Goes South?

Today, the 49ers leave the Bay Area for a Sunday game in Carolina. Then on to London for a game a week later against Denver. Bon Voyage, boys! If you come back home with two wins to show for your

Niners Stink, But Raiders Suck

Sunday’s opponent is the Oakland Raiders. The Bay Area Suck team. Other franchises in this GPS vicinity are often bad, even lousy, sometimes terrible. But only the Raiders suck. It’s not that their team sucks, so much as it is

Is There a “W” in the House?

It’s tough being a 49er fan these days. The team is being ridiculed from sea to shining sea. Mike Singletary is taking a severe beating in both the local and national blogospheres. All my favorite reading holes are poisoned with

Happy Glooming

The last time there was an in season coaching change for the 49ers was two years ago when Mike Nolan was fired and Mike Singletary became interim HC. The team’s initial response to this upheaval was a lifeless beat down

The Osteology Game

The 49ers will beat the Chiefs on Sunday. I don’t have any doubts about it. My bones are telling me this. They are very calm. You might even say they are smirky. Lounge chair bones. Chill dude bones. Bones can

Rats, Raye, Ristbands, & Rolaids

As expected, the main stream press eagerly gathered in Santa Clara yesterday, brandishing red hot pens to brand Mike Singletary with the mark of the Yahoo!. What they got instead was Singletary lounging on the grass while Jimmy Rate held
