Staff Roulette

The 49ers leapt into the new year by firing their D-line coach, their Trainer, and their Strength & Conditioning fellow. The first pink slip is a bit puzzling since the D-line was one of the few areas of competence last

Buzzkill Edition

We’re a week and a half into the offseason, and no 49er player has yet been arrested. Super Bowl here we come! There seems to be a ground swell of optimism forming for the 2019 season, unlike any season in,

Wild Card Weekend

Two games on Wild Card weekend will determine the matchups for the Divisional round. In the AFC, it’s the Colts vs Texans game. If the Texans win, they go to New England and the winner of the Chargers vs Ravens

Bring Your Gum Wads

The Chicago Bears come to town this weekend, fresh from clinching the NFC North division. They would be more tempted to mail this game in if not for the falling fortunes of the Rams which have suddenly made the last

Once More With Gusto

The Seahawks come to town next Sunday for an encore performance of “Kick my butt!” It’s doubtful the 49ers will be as generous this time around as they were two weeks ago in Seattle, when they gifted the Seahawks with

It’s Crowded at the Bottom

As the 2018 season enters the home stretch, many of you have already cast your thoughts forward to the 2019 season. And some of you have evidently dozed off and lost all interest. But the Outsider is duty bound to stay the course

Giants 27, 49ers 23

That was a pretty entertaining game between two evenly matched teams, which is not what you want to say when the team you’re matched up evenly with came into the game with the worst record in the NFC and exited

A Long Way From 1990

Okay, two wins in nine tries. We can build on this! Maybe. Nick Mullens will get a chance to prove or disprove that he was a one-shot wonder against the Raiders when he goes up against the free-falling New York

49ers 34, Raiders 3

Well, that was unexpected. Nick Mullens climbed out of the 49er depth chart cellar and threw down the greatest game in NFL history by a QB newbie. It’s unclear whether this was the birth of a legend or mostly the

Worst a Shire Marathon

The Battle of the Bottom Feeders begins Sunday! Mark your calendars! Don’t miss one minute of excruciating awfulness! Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals has the added benefit of being a battle for last place in the NFC West. Currently,

Carrot and Stick

The Rams and 49ers have not been relevant in the same season since about 2002. But they’ve certainly both been irrelevant in quite a few of those years. We’ve got to get these two synced up if there’s ever going

Crossroads

The bloom is off the rose. The honeymoon is over. The sky is falling – once again. Yes, folks, after a brief vacation in the Kool-Aid tropics, Gloom and Doom have resumed their lengthy stay in the House of York.

Respect, Just a Little Bit

Gloomy week in 49erville. HC Kyle Shanahan must be feeling a little snake bit these days. Every time he brings in a player to help the team, that player ends up on IR. If this keeps up, players are going

Here, Kitty, Kitty

The 49ers catch a break this week, as the awful Detroit Lions come to town, fresh off a week one 48-17 thrashing by the New York Jets. A rather inauspicious debut for Lions’ HC Matt Patricia, who begins his post-Belichick

Vikings 24, 49ers 16

Jimmy Garoppolo is human after all. His NFL unbeaten record came to a crashing halt Sunday in Minnesota, as the Vikings handed Jimmy his first taste of professional defeat after seven consecutive wins. Minnesota QB Kirk Cousins played the kind

Opening Bell

It’s one week until the gates open on the 2018 NFL season. Which means it’s time to throw our brains on the table and cough up our annual predictions of what the 49ers’ record will be this year. As usual,

Colts 23, 49ers 17

The 49ers cleverly disguised their offensive juggernaut Saturday night, pretending to hit a brick wall against the lowly AFC South cellar dwelling Indianapolis Colts. You can almost hear the snores emanating from the game plan rooms of DCs around the

Texans 16, 49ers 13

The first quarter of Saturday’s game in Texas was interesting. The rest of the game, not so much. Marquise Goodwin has clearly become the number one WR on the 49ers and Trent Taylor is the go to guy on third

And Away We Go

So, Thursday night, 49ers against the Cowboys. Two franchises in search of their former glory. Best guess is that neither team will be reaching the Super Bowl this year, but one or both might make the playoffs. Or neither. The

Almost There

49er Training Camp is a week old and the good news is there have been no serious injuries … yet. There’s the annual Arik Armstead “issue” – this year it’s his hamstring, last year his hand, the year before that his

The Gauntlet

Welcome back 2018 49ers. Much will be expected of you this coming season. The past three years, nothing was expected and that is precisely what you delivered, finishing dead last in the NFC West all three years. At minimum, the

Caveat Emptor

Last call for NFL knuckleheads to crash their careers and wind up in the mug shot room. This time next week, they’ll all be back in the loving arms of coaches and baby sitters, safe from themselves. If the NFLPA
