49ers 31, Jets 13

The 49ers got back on track by drubbing the hapless Jets Sunday, but they likely lost any chance at being a SB contender this year when all-world DE Nick Bosa tore his ACL and will be out for the season. The

Cardinals 24, 49ers 20

The 49ers tried to play a 21st century football game with no wide receivers. Fail. Kendrick Bourne: 2 receptions. Dante Pettis: zero. AZ secondary: smoke break. DC Robert Saleh had an entire offseason to figure out how to defend against squirt-ball QBs. Fail. Kyler

And Away We Go

The defending NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers kick off their 2020 season next Sunday afternoon at home against the division rival Arizona Cardinals. These pesky assholes gave the Niners a scare in both games last season, but clutch fourth quarter

The Turk Man Cometh

The NFL cutdown day is next Saturday afternoon. Final roster size remains the usual 53 players, but the practice squad has been expanded from ten players to 16, with six of those players able to be veterans who would not

Halfway to Maybe

A week and a half into training camp and the bodies are falling left and right. Probably a normal occurrence, but each year it seems worse than the previous year. Short term memory loss. Bodies were no doubt falling at

Knocking the Rust Off

Our loveable brutes strapped on the pads last Saturday. Now they have about three weeks to get ready for the season opener against the Cardinals. Jalen Hurd took the opportunity of the first practice to tear his ACL, which will put him

Bubble World Blabber

Most of the news lately has been which players are opting out of the 2020 season. That all ended, presumably, at last Thursday’s 1pm deadline. At this point, you’re either in or you’re out. Sixty-seven players took the out. For

Testing the Water

The NFL is tiptoeing back to work this week. Although “work” might be stretching the concept a bit. All the players will be doing this week is sitting for a virus probe, waiting in isolation for a couple of days,

The Football Panacea

One more week until Training Camp opens. Maybe. With the restrictions imposed by the governor of California, it’s hard to see the 49ers training in Santa Clara without some sort of dispensation. Arizona and Nevada are the most likely possible

Eras Come, Eras Go

The retirement of Joe Staley closed the books on all the players drafted from the Mike Nolan/Scot McCloughan era. In fact, only two players from those years are still on NFL rosters – Alex Smith and Frank Gore. If Michael Crabtree finds a team sometime this

Luck of the Draw

It looks like everyone pretty much agrees that, barring any weird shit, the 49ers will once again be contenders this year. In the NFC, the list of possible contenders is not daunting. There’s the Eagles and Cowboys, Bucs and Saints,

Virtually the Same

Well, that was a pretty weird draft for the 49ers. Fairly effective overall, but decidedly lacking in fan appeal. There’s an old saying that if you aren’t getting better, you’re getting worse. In the Niner’s case, however, staying pretty much

Seven Days to the Clock

One of the enduring screen shots of the Super Bowl was John Lynch frantically signaling for a Time Out from his sky box while down on the field Kyle Shanahan calmly let the clock run out shortly before halftime, even though there

The Virtual Draft

The NFL Draft appears to be on schedule near the end of the month. It won’t have any of the first round players on hand, but Mel Kiper will still be hyperventilating at the camera and you can bet the

It Can’t Happen Here

Lots of bodies flying off the shelves last week. The 49ers didn’t acquire any of them, and they lost Emmanuel Sanders and traded Deforest Buckner for the 13th pick in this Draft. Weaker on offense and defense. For now. Not much to fault

Thumb Twiddling

Looks like we’ll be getting a 17 game season in a year or two, with an extra wild card team in each conference. And only the top seeded team in each conference will get a BYE week in the playoffs.

Segwe to 2020

The 2020 Combine is coming up later this month, which will get hearts fluttering with excitement for the draftniks among us. And for complete football junkies, the XFL is making another effort at forming a viable alternative to the NFL.

Perspective Detective

Last week was hard to digest. Tough for us 49er fans, and no doubt tougher for the team and coaches. But they get paid for their grief, and we don’t. Kyle Shanahan has been roasted a bit, while Andy Reid has

Chiefs 31, 49ers 20

The 49ers’ fairy tale season came to an ignominious end Sunday night in Miami, crushed to death at the fifty yard line as Jimmy Garoppolo stood motionless, unable or unwilling to throw the ball on fourth and ten with the season

Defense, Defense, Defense!

It’s blah, blah, blah week while we wait for next Sunday’s Super Bowl game. While it’s nice that the Niners and Chiefs are doing the yapping, and not some other team from the East Coast, it’s still a lot of

49ers 37, Packers 20

The 49ers made it look easy Sunday night, pounding their way to a 27-0 halftime lead and cruising to the finish line. There wasn’t a moment of real anxiety the entire game. The most laughable and yet telling stat of

Gloat Sandwich

The 49ers and Packers had a pretty good rivalry in the late ’90s, albeit a bit one sided. Brett Farve had their number and knocked them out of the playoffs in 1995, 1996, and 1997. The Niners finally beat him in
