The Big Three

Some 49er fans (and a few beat writers) are skeptical that the team will open up the offense this coming season, spreading it out and running 3-wide formations abundantly. After all, Trent Baalke just drafted a couple more big, bruising

Sgt. Pepper vs the Blue Meanies

The Richter Scale crowds in Seattle are making a mockery of competitive fairness in the NFL. It’s one thing for the home crowd to make it difficult for an opposing offense to operate, but quite another to make it flat

The Fallen Idols Bowl

Now that fans have expressed their outrage over losing a game nobody expected us to win in the first place, it’s time to move along to the next opponent. One that the 49ers specialize in beating — a losing team.

Midterm Reflections

At the halfway point of the 2012 season, the NFC playoff picture seems pretty clear. For the teams that will be the true SB contenders this year. There will be a scrubeenie entrant, that takes its fans down to the

Around the Horn

The second week of OTAs has come and gone, which is the good news. We are one week closer to the start of Training Camp. With only three changes to the starting lineup this year — Randy Moss replacing Josh

OTA Week I of IV

The first of three OTAs, plus a concluding minicamp, begins Tuesday. I’m not sure if the players get to actually touch each other yet, let alone play partially real football. The offseason rules of the new CBA are convoluted enough

Feeding the Beast

In the past three drafts, Trent Baalke has grabbed six offensive linemen, and brought in another in FA. That’s a focused commitment to the old adage that the game is won and lost in the trenches. Only two guys are

Easter Choices

It’s that time of year for Rob to put on his bunny suit and hide eggs all over Florida under his Bonsai trees. Happy hoppin’, Rob ! !! The new Nike jerseys unveiled Tuesday were not modeled by a single

Leftover Stew

Free Agency 2012 burned up its drama in about ten days. By Friday of last week, the top headliners had all been signed. Over the next few weeks, the off Broadway guys will be trickling in hither and yon throughout

Was It Good For You, Too?

Which one is the loser? It was exciting subbing in for New York this past two weeks, but a little exhausting. Thankfully, the Jets have reclaimed the news feed throne by trading for Tim Tebow, bringing it all back home

Lunch Lips

Trent Baalke hit the lotto two years in a row with his third round picks — NaVorro Bowman and Chris Culliver. Neither pick drew oohs and aahs at the time. More like who’s and wha’s. Bowman stepped in for Takeo

Hangin’ Round the Ink Well

Ink flowing is not normally as fascinating to observe as is paint drying, grass growing, or televised Combine events, but this could change in the next two weeks. The 49ers have until March 13th to re-sign currently held players or

Core de Corps

Patience holds little value in the blog world, but it is a major contributor to assembling a good team. This past year, we saw Tarell Brown emerge as a solid CB, Dashon Goldson go to the Pro Bowl, Adam Snyder

Milk Carton Man

Most of the time, disappearing acts and football are not a good combination. Ask Michael Crabtree, who vanished during the playoffs. But someone else dropped off the radar screen in 2011, too, and it was a very good thing. One

Roster MRI

Cheer up Kyle Williams. You goated it in front of 69,000,000 viewers, but Wes Welker clanked to the turf in front of 118,000,000. That is a whopping 49,000,000 more You Sucks on his head than yours. Feeling a little lighter

Best in the West

Eight years of Dweeb football came to a resounding end Sunday at Candlestick. The 49ers completely stomped the Rams in a game that had zero sweaty moments. Not once, even for a second, was this game in doubt. NFC West

The Homestretch

Monday Night’s game in the Superdome just about guaranteed that the 49ers will not be letting up in the month of December. Nobody, even the Packers, wants to end up in New Orleans during the playoffs. If the 49ers can

Stuffed and Basted

The San Francisco 49ers Magical Mystery Tour ran out of hallucinogens Thursday night and the team crashed back to reality. Bummer, man. Not hard to figure this game out. Nine sacks. 125 yards of game altering penalties. Short end of

Kool-Aid Sales Soar

The Bye Week is normally a drizzly, anguished time where we either say good-Bye to another lost cause 49er season or drastically reduce our expectations for what the team can hope to accomplish with the remaining schedule. This latter occurrence

Rise of the Machine

For those of you who were born too late to witness first hand the San Francisco 49ers’ glory years in the ’80’s and ’90’s, Sunday’s complete demolishing of the Tampa Bay Bucs was the type of game those earlier years

A Debacular Success

Sunday’s 13-8 victory over the Bengals was probably the 49ers’ most exciting and satisfying unwatchable game in many years. And there are a lot of unwatchable games in contention for this distinction. What made this ugly duckling sparkle over the

Spine Bottom Roulette

The 49ers’ Training Camp 2011 ended Thursday, and the players broke camp by checking out of their hotel rooms, I guess, because they don’t go anywhere for camp any more. With the new CBA banning two-a-days, you can’t call these
