The Three Amigos

This year’s playoffs have been a lot like watching this year’s 49ers. Various versions of seeing a team get blown out of a game. Only two out of ten games have been nail biters. Some were over by the second

Opening Bell

The Chip Kelly era officially began Monday morning when the team gathered in Santa Clara for the first offseason workouts and team meetings. The prelude to the era revealed that Kelly belongs to the school of coaches who deal with

Desperate Guys’ Club

The Santa Clara Yorkies hired an actual NFL head coach last Thursday. Last year’s meathead D-line coach experiment might have seemed cutting edge to Jed York and Trent Baalke, but the 2015 season revealed that edge to be as sharp

Stuck Inside of Mobile

The 49ers have been soundly beaten by the Cardinals and the Seahawks. They’ll get whipped again by each of them this year. Next Sunday we’ll find out if they get trashed by the Rams, too. And with the fearsome front

Forward to the Past

The marketing wing at 4949 Centennial Blvd. has officially scrapped the “Quest for Six” slogan and replaced it with “Hooray, We Suck” banners for the 2015 season. Santa Clara tax dollars at work. The 49ers will be holding a rookie

Coming Attractions

It’s been one week since the free agency period started, yet just about all the big names are already off the market. That wasn’t very exciting. It also means there won’t be much happening between now and the end of

March of Many Dimes

The 2015 Free Agent market opens for business on Tuesday at 1:00pm PST, as well as the new NFL year. Bear in mind, Seattle still lost the Super Bowl to end the 2014 season and the jeering period has not

Scraping the Barrel

Jed York took a weekend break from his whirlwind tour of beaming like a dunce while trying to sell Jim Tomsula to a highly skeptical world. Too bad. The laughter was just starting to make me forget how screwed the

Fools Rush In

The 49ers are in a pickle. Or at least us fans are. The team is run by an insecure boy owner trying to fill his Uncle Eddie’s shoes and an insecure GM trying to prove he deserves the job for

Mug Shot Patrol

The past week has not been a good one for the 49ers. Train wreck about covers it. On Sunday, OLB extraordinaire Aldon Smith went off the rails yet again, getting arrested in L.A. for a false report of a bomb.

Fab Rehab Team

The second of three OTAs begins Tuesday and hopefully we will not hear anything newsworthy from this three day practice session. If there’s real news, it’s going to be bad. Otherwise, everyone is looking great and ready to have a

Tampering Week

The blossoms are on the trees these days, coloring up the bleak winter view, and attracting the sleek black crows to the nests of robins where they can eagerly gobble up the little robinettes, ending their poor little lives before

Semester Break

The 49ers zoomed into sole possesion of first place in the NFC West Sunday by lounging pool side while watching Arizona get stuffed by Minnesota. Next Monday night, the team will get to stuff Arizona themselves. Meanwhile, Seattle CB Richard

Pucker Up And Blow

It’s generally assumed the 49ers will have a very good year in 2012. Heck, this site gooped as much just last Friday. But one thing the 2012 season won’t have is the amazed glee the 2011 season provided. The 2011

QB or Not QB

This year’s training camp and preseason games will be quite a bit different than the previous seven years have been. The 49ers are the reigning NFC West champions, not the team that might be good or might be bad. They’re

Oh, My Darling

Today’s topic is Patrick Willis. He’s great. He’s awesome. Everybody agrees. Next up, the NFC West now has the 2010 (Sam Bradford), 2011 (Kevin Kolb), and 2012 (Matt Flynn) QB debutante darlings. And nobody’s darling, Alex Smith. Looks like the

The Spin Doctor Is In

Now that the 49ers’ Front Office has bungled away the feel good atmosphere of the hugely successful 2011 season and reminded us of the ten years of ownership ineptitude which preceded it, everyone can get back to business. And thank

Circle Jerk

It’s back to the drawing board this week for coach Jim Harbaugh and his reputed secret magic marker. Unfortunately, the drawing board always begins with five circles in a row that represents a commodity not so far evident in the

Lieutenant Smith

Thankfully, the meatheads who have brought us the lockout/legal gagger seem to be finally getting around to hacking out a new CBA and getting this 2011 season started. As soon as that happens, and it’s been predicted at two weeks

Personna Non Grata

Jim Harbaugh inherited a team with only one quarterback signed for the 2011 season — David Carr. Harbaugh had no use for Carr and has barely even mentioned him. And no one has faulted his judgment on this non-stated thumbs

Rope A Dope

The NFL players seem to have approached the CBA talks with the assumption there would be no deal because they wouldn’t make one, and they would simply decertify and promptly win an injunction against the owners lockout. They considered winning

The Thirteenth Man

When the 2010 season began, the first five 49er games of the season were widely viewed as two easy wins (KC and Seattle), two sure losses (Saints and Atlanta), and one toss-up (Eagles). As it turned out, all five of
