Tough Guys Don’t Dance

The 49ers have generously added yet another game for our viewing pleasure this year with their victory over the Panthers. This will be the third straight year the team has advanced to the NFC Championship Game. Bravo lads! Has it

Bargain Hunting

The 2013 offseason has been a bit of a yawner so far. Not that we expected much more. When you have fourteen draft picks, it’s pretty obvious where the mustard will be squoozed this year. Getting Anquan Boldin for virtually

OTA Week III of IV

The boys will be back at it again today, whatever “it” is. A closely guarded state secret, mostly. Then again, what’s there to reveal about practices? They got the blocking sleds, the little pads and cones that guys do 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

Highway 49 Revisited

The first round of the 2011 playoffs is in the books, with all four home teams winning. There will be no wild card entrants advancing to the Super Bowl this year. Football purists everywhere are pleased. And so is everyone

FA Brake Down

There’s been a lot of early season jitters as the blogorama shakes off the rust of the long offseason and gets its tonsils game ready. But one week into the new season, the collective nerves seem to be settling down

One Weak Wonders

The Great 2011 Free Agency Manhunt enters its seventh day this morning and a football starved world has come out of hiding to gush and moan for six solid days. The Eagles and Jets have generated the most buzz, but

Comings And Goings

It’s great to have football news again. I see everyone has been enjoying it. The first few days of free agency have been a whirlwind of league activity which the 49ers, true to their word, have more or less refrained

Open Season

Monday, July 25, 2011, the dirt bags who brought us an empty offseason finally announced a new CBA agreement, thus turning back on the lights of the NFL. We are pleased. The 49ers wasted no time before immediately gorging on

Setting the Bar

Training Camp opens in two and a half weeks, so it’s time to lace up our cleats and get down to the business of explaining to Jim Harbaugh just what he needs to do this year to please us. With

See The UFA, In Your Chez Buffet

As reported by ProFootballTalk Tuesday, the new CBA will allow players with four years in the league to become Unrestricted Free Agents, or UFAs for you acronym lovers. This puts Dashon Goldson, Ray McDonald, and Manny Lawson out there on

Peaches and Puleese

Now that it appears the NFL will have a full training camp and preseason, perhaps we can begin to realistically discuss the 49ers chances for success in 2011. If not realistically, then at least without the constant parenthetical qualification of

Hypothetical Hypnosis

On the plus side of no football activity this off season, the 49ers will likely be able to retain the services of Manny Lawson, Dashon Goldson, David Baas, and maybe even Abrayo Franklin or Takeo Spikes, if the team still

Free Agent Blues

The UFL conducted its draft Monday, mostly in obscurity. It’s fair to say that many of the guys this league drafted would normally be in the UDFA pool and the NFL would be swooping in to sign them this week.

Through a Glass Darkly

The court ordered resumption of the CBA labor mediation ended Wednesday and will not resume until mid May due to a scheduling conflict in the mediator’s calendar. Judge Jensen must surely have been aware of the mediator’s calendar when she

Run Forrest, Run! . . . . . . .

UPDATE: Nothing is happening in the NFL. When nothing finally gives way to something, this site will dutifully return to action. Until then, I’m sick of covering lawyer baloney, and am going to take a break. An actual football discussion

De Profundis De Not

The first group of NFL players impacted by the lockout are the Free Agents. Guys who do not have a contract with any team and cannot sign one until there’s a new agreement. This is a pretty large group of

Behind the Scenes Behind the Scenes

Yesterday came and went without a lockout, but it may have closed the door on the 49er careers of Alex Smith and Abrayo Franklin. Neither of these players is expected to re-sign with the team. The Niners indifference to giving

Today we get to find out how fast CB Prince Amukamara is and how stiff CB Patrick Peterson is. One of these two, or both, will be available when the 49ers are on the clock with the 7th pick of

Estate Planning

As I mentioned last Friday, the 49ers have assured us they have a Plan A, B, and C for this off season of uncertainty. I may have left out D and E, but if we get that far into the

Knows To Nose: Pick ‘Em

The 2011 NFL Combine starts today, but in looking at the schedule of events, absolutely nothing of interest will occur until Saturday. Today, Thursday, and Friday, all that will be happening is measurements, physical exams, Wonderlic Tests, and interviews with

All Along the Watchtower

For those keeping tabs, as of today February has sucked for 39.28% 42.85% 46.43% of its total suckdomness. Excruciating. The 49ers have not signed any players or released any players. No one has gotten the franchise tag. The fates of
