There’s a Bar Up Above

Five more weeks of the offseason before we begin to see if Kyle Shanahan can emulate Jim Harbaugh by taking a 6-10 team and turning it into a 13-3 playoff team. Some might say that’s not a fair contest, since

As the Alex Turns

The first week of the 2018 offseason has passed quietly into history, taking with it all the nothingness of its existence. Although, to be fair, 1,063,462 persons around the globe croaked last week, so perhaps the week has significance to

Conference Title Games

Bleccccchh! And another tedious NFL season bites the dust. Next up, two weeks of shameless, overhyped, self-aggrandizing nausea. Fortunately, this is a 49er site and we can legitimately ignore the whole pile of steaming hot crap. Sorry, but apparently I’ve

Coming Attractions

The 49ers have not had a franchise QB since Steve Young was knocked out of the NFL by Aeneas Williams at Arizona in 1999. They won’t have one this year, either. Making it 19 straight years with a deficiency at

Post Harbaugh, Take II

And so it begins. The Chip Kelly Era is underway. Kelly’s Eagles team last year, while “collapsing” to a 7-9 record after two straight 10-6 seasons, still finished 13th in points scored and 12th in yards — yardage stats that

Another week closer to the start of the 2016 season. And, for the first time since 2009, there will be a QB competition to provide some drama to the exhibition games. Shaun Hill got the nod over Alex Smith in

The Great Divide

It’s been a long time since the blogosphere was this polarized. Not since the pre-Harbaugh days of Alex Smith. Heading into the 2015 season, bloggers either think the franchise is just fine, or they think it’s become a laughingstock. There’s

Baalkan Island

For the next two months, it will be GM Trent Baalke‘s turn to show us what he can do. Free agency begins in two weeks, followed by the draft in late April. Everyone seems to be clamoring for a fast

Manhood Test

Here comes Seattle. If the 49ers beat them, they’ll be alive for a playoff berth and we’ll have a week and a half to gloat. If they beat us, we’ll have ten months of agony and upheaval staring us in

Rams 13, 49ers 10

What a pathetic game. If Charles Haley was still on the team, he’d have torn up that brand new, state-of-the-art, comfy ass locker room in Santa Clara after this one. The Rams deserved to win the game, but they didn’t

49ers 22, Chiefs 17

The San Francisco 49ers squeeeeeeeeeeeaked by the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday afternoon in Santa Clara, on a sweltering hot day featuring two bread and butter, meat and potatoes, lunch bucket blue collar football teams. The Chiefs started fast with two

Past vs Present

The Kansas City Chiefs come to the Bay Area on Sunday, bringing with them a defense that just stuffed the Patriots Monday night and an offense that blew the Pats off the field. They can run it and they can

Hick Cups

We’re in the midst of a sporting drought. The Red Sox flicked aside the Cardinals in last fall’s World Series, the Seahawks blew out the Broncos, the Spurs humbled the Heat, the Kings wiped out the Rangers, and the U.S.

2014 Draft Recap

Hats off to 49ers GM Trent Baalke, who put on an amazing show at the 2014 NFL Draft. Maybe he was juiced up by all the offseason talk about who had more value to the franchise — him or Jim

2014 Draft: Day One

The 49ers stood pat at pick #30 in round one of the 2014 Draft and selected small school safety Jimmie Ward. There were no shouts of joy from the assembled multitudes at the team’s draft party HQ. Not much sis-boom-bah

The Ten Four Clubs

With one week left before the beginning of Free Agency, the 49ers have yet to re-sign any of their 12 pending free agents. That’s 23% of last year’s season ending roster in danger of going bye-bye. Of course, some of

Bystander Blues

I’ll be rooting for Denver in Sunday’s Super Bowl. Mostly because I despise the Seahawks. I’d like to see them beaten, and embarrassed would be even better. Tawdry, perhaps, but true. But the fate of the Seahawks casts a shadow

New World Order

It’s Super Bowl week. I hated it last year, when it was all about the 49ers, so there’s no way in hell it will be enjoyable this year when it focuses on the Douchebags of the Northwest. If there’s another

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

On The Road

Welcome to 2014, fellow Outsiders! We are now in the sudden death time of year. Each 49er game might be the last we see them until next August. Scary. It’s also 0-0 time and any team can catch fire, luck,

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

Alas, Poor Yorick

Watching former 49er head coach Mike Nolan’s Atlanta defense get shredded Monday night by the Jets(!) and failing to protect the lead in the last two minutes of the game was a painful reminder that it was not so long
