Take a Number

The 49ers close out their offseason practices this week. If you gleaned any useful information from these sessions, congratulations. Your drug of choice has served you well. Joe Montana‘s recent birthday was a painful reminder that we once had recognizable,

OTA Waltz

The 49ers held some OTAs last week, and the guys were running around in their shorts doing athletic stuff. Titillating entertainment for the female population. Wimpy fake football to us manly men. The Niner beat writers seem very impressed with

School’s Out

The 49ers have concluded their Spring practices and we now have six weeks until Training Camp opens. The do-nothing 2016 offseason trickles toward its inept conclusion. Chip Kelly said that Antoine Bethea looked like the best player in the secondary.

Long Odds

Your faithful scribe has been offline for a couple of weeks. In my absence, the 49ers have apparently been flying under the radar also, content to remain inconspicuous while the Warriors, Sharks, and Giants capture the attention of the Bay

He Gotta Be He

OTAs begin this week. Unless they were last week and I missed them. Just to be fair and cover my bases, I’ll miss them this week, too. Everyone is talking about Chip Kelly and his “system” these days. A couple

Dry Run

The 49er rookies got their first taste of life in the NFL last week, going through the rookie mini-camp. Most of them swaggered into the league full of themselves and the wonderfulness of their very presence on the planet. In

In the Interim

News out of camp last week was that Jim Tomsula is “not just a meathead D-line coach.” This sounds suspiciously like: “I am not a crook.” or “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” Not exactly a ringing

Knothole Report

Your intrepid reporter spent the Memorial Day weekend in Santa Clara. Naturally, I couldn’t resist driving over to check out the new stadium. There was a chain link fence surrounding it and guards at the northwest and the northeast entrances,

Minicamp Munchies

The first day of minicamp produced a torrent of news that didn’t abate until the entire bottom of a thimble had been dampened. AJ Jenkins caught a difficult pass and Scott Tolzien tossed two to four interceptions, depending which beat

They’re Out There

The 49ers will hold their three day minicamp this week, Tuesday through Thursday. The practices will be open to the public, as mandated by the league. Understandably miffed by this open door dictate, Jim Harbaugh will hold the practices 100

Tough Guys Don’t Dance

Anquan Boldin has been impressive in the OTA practices. A couple of the beat guys even said he looked like a true number one receiver. In seven years with the Cardinals and three with the Ravens, however, he was never

Gone Fishing

The much ballyhooed offseason practices are in the books. Ballyhooed? Where were the flaming Tweets? The yellow headlines? The steaming trailers? True, there was little hoo in the bally, but the mere existence of offseason practices, where the 13-3 club

OTAs Week IV of IV

The last of the 49ers’ offseason three day practices starts Tuesday. It’s called a minicamp, not an Organized Team Activity, and attendance is mandatory. Failure to show up results in fines totally up to $60,000. This will give us a

Reporting For Duty, Sir

While many of you trudge reluctantly to the nearest Post Office today, grudgingly rendering to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, the San Francsico 49ers will gather in Santa Clara and toss the old potato around for the first time

They Call Me Al

The second edition of Camp Alex begins today, featuring Coach Alex instructing Himself Alex and the Supporting Cast Alex as to the fundamentals of Jim “I ♥ Alex” Harbaugh’s playbook. Alextrifying moments ahead this week, 49er fans. There have been

Ode de Camp

Camp Alex, the first football activity of the 49ers’ 2011 season, has completed its four day run, and already the blog world is pissed off about everything. It could be a grumpy year ahead. Jim Harbaugh was almost unanimously welcomed

Naming Rights

Michael Crabtree weighed in decisively and affirmatively on the UQB issue Monday, refusing to be nudged into supplanting the “U” with an “N(ame)”. You can hardly fault the guy, given his brief history in 49er land. In his first year,

The Crabtree Riddle

The long awaited debut of the 2011 49er offseason practices begins today. I can’t believe I just wrote that sentence. Practices? We’re all so starved for actuality that practices are “long awaited,” much less mentioned at all? This is where

We now temporarily interrupt the astute observations and cogent insights of the Outsider commenters to bring you an ever more sporadic and vacant new post. As many of you have noticed, there is nothing happening and news is confined to

Real vs Special

Mike Singletary said last week that he might hold three or four roster spots for core special teams players. For those in the blogosphere who make a yearly habit out of trashing our ST captain Michael Robinson’s worth, they can

Seventh Round Knockout

The first of two weeks of OTAs concluded last Friday without this reporter seeing so much as one play. I did, however, get a barrage of Tweets from Maiocco, Barrows, and Barber. Lynch does not appear to have a Twitter
