TC Week Two

The first exhibition game is this Saturday against Houston. Which means we’ll have 49er football games to entertain us each week until January 3rd, when the season ends for our red and gold, or black and atrocious, warriors. Big year

Coming Soon: The Not Harbaugh Era

The NFC West has one team that knows it will be in the playoffs, one team that assumes it will make the playoffs, and one team that hopes to make the playoffs. And one team that will be wildly enthusiastic

49er 2015 Draft Recap

The results are in and we now know the names of the ten players who will waste their first year in the NFL learning schemes and systems from lousy coaches who will be fired in a year or two. Enjoy

Draft Bier

Draft frenzy is in full swing these days. The Draft itself is quite enjoyable, but the pre-draft hoopla can be a bit taxing. If this sort of entertainment is not one’s cup of tea, it’s like living in a one

Coming Attractions

It’s been one week since the free agency period started, yet just about all the big names are already off the market. That wasn’t very exciting. It also means there won’t be much happening between now and the end of

Final Days of the Harbaugh Era

One more butt kicking to endure and the 49ers are out of here until next August. Who’s gonna be on the team then and who’s gonna be coaching it are currently a mystery. If only the identity of the owner

49ers 17, Washington 13

The 49ers pulled another game out of their rear ends Sunday afternoon, stunning the disinterested Santa Clara minglers by scoring their first fourth quarter TD of the year! and oozing out a late victory. After falling behind 13-10, old guy

Trap Game Warning

Most of us thought we’d be talking this week about a 4-5 team whose playoff chances were dangling by their last flimsy thread, needing to win out to get into the postseason. I might have led off this piece by

Once More, With Gusto

Aldon Smith did not return early from his nine game suspension this week, as many surmised he would. But, who cares? We don’t need him this week. After all, we’re playing the Rams! Again! Next week, however, either Aldon is

Halfway House

How nice of the NFL to give the Niners a BYE week so the Bay Area can concentrate on rooting for the Giants to win the World Series. It’s been a strange beginning to the 2014 season. The new stadium

Broncos 42, 49ers 17

I haven’t turned off a 49er game in the third quarter since probably as far back as the Mike Nolan era, but this puppy was going nowhere fast and when Colin Kaepernick tossed an interception and the Broncos immediately cashed

Bronc Skinner Blues

The 49ers have given the Eagles their only defeat this year, as well as the Cowboys their sole blemish. If this Sunday night’s opponent, the Broncos, hadn’t already lost a game, I’d feel confident the Niners would whip them. But

49ers 31, Rams 17

For the third straight game, the 49ers dug themselves into a 14 point hole, then methodically clawed their way out and won. This time, they were down 14-0 after the first quarter and looked to be heading into the half

Meet Me In St. Louis

Last year, the St. Louis Rams recorded 53 sacks. This year, after four games, they have ONE! Uno potahto, baby! DE Robert Quinn had 19 sacks last year. This year, ZERO! It must be that multi-million dollar contract upgrade he

Cardinals 23, 49ers 14

For the third consecutive week, the 49ers jumped out to a first half lead, then imploded in the second half. The lead was big enough in the first game to withstand the brown out, but last week and this week,

Bears 28, 49ers 20

The 49ers embarrassed themselves Sunday night, turning an easy win into an ugly loss, and christening their brand new stadium with a layer of stink normally associated with descriptions of toilet overflow at the Oakland Raiders’ facilities. The 49ers new

Place Your Bets

The exhibition games have concluded and we blognoscenti now have all the evidence we’re going to get about what kind of 49er team to expect in 2014. Ergo, it’s time for the annual crystal ball efforts. Roll the old orb

49ers 40, Texans 13

The 49ers closed out the 2014 Exhibition season by thoroughly routing the Houston Texans, 40-13. It was the scrubs finest hour. And for many of them, their final hour, too. The first half looked pretty similar to the starting unit’s

Changing of the Guard

By all accounts, Aldon Smith is having a superman TC so far. That’s the good news. The bad news is multiple reports are predicting a six to eight game suspension for the 2014 season. The silver lining news is that

The Church of Football Is Open

The players are back, the pads go on tomorrow, and in less than two weeks we’ll be watching a real fake football game. The final score doesn’t matter in these fake games, so they serve mainly as a warning to

Sic Transit Offseason

One more week, guys. We’re almost there. Rookies report today and the vets next Wednesday. First padded practice the 26th. The offseason has brought us many entertainments, starting with the trade of Jim Harbaugh to Cleveland — NOT. Then a

Summer Wind

OTAs and minicamp have ended. The players now have five weeks or so of dangerous freedom before the start of Training Camp. Plenty of time to do something insane, like hoisting a huge party, shooting assault rifles from your roof
