Take A Number

The 49er rookies will tee off their NFL careers this weekend with a mandatory minicamp. Good luck, plebes. You’ll need it. Some of these kids will become household names in the coming years, maybe even some pro bowlers in the

The Raiders’ Swag

PFT‘s first 2013 Power Poll began oozing from its website this past week, and leading off, in the very last spot on the chart, was the Oakland Raiders. Dead last at number 32. Also leaking its way into existence, from

The Bay Area is having a pretty good run right now. The Giants are World Champs, the 49ers came up five yards short of the title, the Warriors are amazing everyone with their spirited playoff run, the Sharks just might

Wide World of Sports

My brother-in-law did a very nice thing last week. He is an avid 49er fan, but not an internet fan, so he never reads my blog. He knows about it, though, and knows about me and has been concerned as

Vacancy. Inquire Within.

Trent Baalke mentioned yesterday that next year’s 49er QB is not currently on the roster. Nate Davis took the blubber he acquired while rededicating himself to his craft this past season up to Seattle where it will help keep him

40?!?! WTF!!

I don’t think I’ve ever heard a QB booed on the first play of the game. And the second. That’s some serious and immediate eff you feedback. The third play was a 22 yard completion to Vernon Davis and that

Raiders Suck!!

The 49ers play an exhibition game against the Raiders Saturday, and yesterday I paid the Raiders the ultimate disrespect by deeming them too insignificant to waste any words describing their woefulness or even summoning any concern that they were on
