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

OTA Lift Off

The news out of camp from the year’s first OTA practices was mostly good. The best news was Michael Crabtree has not yet broken or maimed any part of his tootsies. In five years, he’s only started a season healthy

Talk Is Cheap

We are now half way through the offseason, and less than a week away from the 2014 Draft. Easy, guys! Hold back those yawns! We’ll find out today whether the 49ers pick up the 5th year option on resident bad

Dead Air

The NFL has finally grunted out the 2014 schedule, giving starved football fans something tangible to munch on. (Ed note: not sure this image is suitable for children) The 49ers are an 11 to 13 win team, no matter who’s

Unclean Hands

Easter has come and gone and all across the country, Christians are resuming their sinful ways. Heathens are presumably just facing yet another week on the road to hell, no different than any other wicked and empty set of days.

New Blood

When the 49ers start the 2014 season, almost half the defense will be different than the one that started the 2013 season. DC Vic Fangio will have his biggest challenge since taking over the job in 2011. The team will

Mug Shot Patrol

The past week has not been a good one for the 49ers. Train wreck about covers it. On Sunday, OLB extraordinaire Aldon Smith went off the rails yet again, getting arrested in L.A. for a false report of a bomb.

Miami Vice

The 49ers are reportedly anxious to get Colin Kaepernick into camp so they can work on his mechanics. Really? They’ve had him for three years now and are just getting around to his mechanics? Hmmmm. This looks suspiciously like a

Plenty of Nothing

Four weeks into Free Agency and the 49ers have done just about nothing, except re-signing some of their own players and picking up some table scraps from other teams. The only FA starter signed was SS Antoine Bethea. He replaced

Rolling the Dice

Both the Patriots and the 49ers have been to three straight Conference Championship games. They’ve each lost twice and won once. They’ve both lost their one Super Bowl appearance. That’s the franchise company the 49ers find themselves in. The big

49ers 27, Whatchamacallits 6

Look, Ma, a passing game! The 49ers found one in Washington Monday night, as well as a pass rush, and they whipped the Whatevers 27-6, regaining the sixth playoff seed held for a mere 24 hours by the Arizona Cardinals.

Half Time Adjustments

The Carolina Panthers are seeing the news coming out of their next opponent’s HQ, which would be our own 49ers, and asking themselves WTF?! At a point in the season where most teams are coping with players lost to injury,

Slow Weekend

Not much happening at 49er HQ this week. That is all. Just kidding. I have some more words to throw around here, if I can just find them. Not sure why the team is dribbling out the player activations. Tank

Class Consciousness

We’re seven weeks into the 2013 season and the league picture is coming into focus. Unlike America, which seems bent on destroying the middle class, the NFL, which prefers parity, has a solid block of middle class teams. In the

Nail Biting Yawner

The last time the 49ers played the Tennessee Titans, RB Chris Johnson was chugging along toward a 2,000 yard season and Vince Young was the QB. They came to Candlestick with a 1-6 record and beat us 34-27. Each team

Roster Massage

Six games into the season and nine teams are spinning their wheels at 3-3. That’s good enough for first place in the NFC East now and maybe even all season long. Two teams are a perfect 6-0, Denver and Kansas

49ers 32, Cardinals 20

Late in the 3rd quarter, the 49ers were clinging to a 22-20 lead, when Patrick Willis stripped the ball from Larry Fitzgerald at the SF 11, Eric Reid recovered, and this looked like a game the team was going to

And Away We Go

For the second straight year, the 49ers will open the season against Green Bay. Last year, that game was on the road. This year it’s at Candlestick. For the Packers, this will be the second straight game against the 49ers,

Unseen Forces

The OTAs came and went last week, causing nary a ripple in the news stream of our lives. The 49ers have become a covert operation. We’re going to need a Deep Throat if we ever expect to get any intel

Fab Rehab Team

The second of three OTAs begins Tuesday and hopefully we will not hear anything newsworthy from this three day practice session. If there’s real news, it’s going to be bad. Otherwise, everyone is looking great and ready to have a

Roster Roulette

Last year, the 49ers returned all 22 starters on offense and defense. Ergo sumatra, there was no place for any of the 2012 rookies to squeeze into the starting lineup. That’s not the case this year. There are three vacancies
