Third exhibition game coming up Saturday against the Broncos, and probably the only real glimpse we’ll get at what kind of team we have before the action begins for real. Not that we don’t already know what kind of team

TC Week One

Training Camp is underway and everyone is happier, everyone is faster, and everyone is better. Ah, TC bliss. There’s a lot of hyperbole emanating from camp now as the once mighty men try to psyche themselves up for the tenuous

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

Long Term Forecast: Drought

The 49ers are catching a media break now with the Giants rallying back into the NL West race and the Warriors grabbing everyone’s attention as they try to bring home their first NBA Title since 1975. That’s a 40 year

Raiders 24, 49ers 13

The 49er season, and probably the Jim Harbaugh era, came to an ignominious end Sunday in Oakland. The team is in such disarray and so riddled with injuries that it’s difficult to see them winning another game this season. The

49ers 28, Cowboys 17

The San Francisco 49ers bullied their way to a 28-3 halftime lead over the inept Dallas Cowboys, then spent the second half running out the clock, instead of running up the score. How polite. Along the way, Frank Gore went

Little Big Men

It only took three practices to answer the question about what to do with the crowded situation at running back. The answer was “Never mind.” First Kendall Hunter went out for the year with an ACL tear, then LaMichael James

Baalke’s Big Adventure

Here we are at last. The 2014 NFL Draft will actually, finally, mercifully take place this week, beginning Thursday evening. The 49ers have the 30th pick in the first round and just about nobody expects them to sit waiting to

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

Table Scraps

February bids us adieu today and you won’t catch me shedding any tears for this midget month. Condolences to all of you born in this end of the Zodiac squirt. Trust me, it explains everything that’s gone wrong in your

Class of 2013

The 49ers had three distinct areas of need (D-line, FS, and TE) going into the 2013 Draft and they addressed all three areas in the first two days. Whether the dresses added improve the comeliness of the product to the

Scheme Scream

The San Francisco 49ers squeezed by the Miami Dolphins Sunday afternoon, winning 27-13. It was not an impressive victory, but it did virtually guarantee that the team will make the 2012 playoffs. How far they advance in those playoffs is

Last Rehearsal For Opening Night

The 49ers appear to have sufficient depth at every position on the offense, but there are some nervous making areas on defense. The drop off from starter to backup at OLB and the safety positions is down right scary. It

OTAs Week IV of IV

The last of the 49ers’ offseason three day practices starts Tuesday. It’s called a minicamp, not an Organized Team Activity, and attendance is mandatory. Failure to show up results in fines totally up to $60,000. This will give us a

Facial Recognition Teamware

The 49ers’ first three day OTA has concluded. There will now be a four day rest period before the next OTA. Gasp. Wheeze. C’mon, man! What we’ve learned so far is that Frank Gore is primed for another year of

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

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

The Crying Game

NY Giants head coach Tom Coughlin mentioned after Sunday’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers that he thought his team was in control of the game and he was shocked that they lost. After pouring over the tape of the

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

Have I mentioned the San Francisco 49ers are BACK?! Are we through shocking the world yet? We’ve taken down the Dream Team in Philly and Sunday we took down the Darling Team in Detroit. For the third straight game, the

Hypothetical Hypnosis

On the plus side of no football activity this off season, the 49ers will likely be able to retain the services of Manny Lawson, Dashon Goldson, David Baas, and maybe even Abrayo Franklin or Takeo Spikes, if the team still
