Panthers 10, 49ers 9

For the second time this year, a frisky young team came into Candlestick and used the 49ers as a launching pad into NFL respectability. First it was the Colts, who used their offense to bowl us over. Then Sunday, the

49ers 42, Jaguars 10

The San Francisco 49ers guffawed their way past the Jacksonville Jaguars 42-10 Sunday night at Wembley Stadium in London. They marched down the field for TDs the first four times they had the ball, then, noticing it was almost halftime,

We’re Off and Stumbling

The 49ers opened the 2013 season with a 7 minute, 13 play drive that honked out in the Red Zone, forcing them to settle for a FG. Hmmm. That was the all too familiar script in the 2012 season, right

I Shoes

In a strangely candid moment, Greg Roman told the media Tuesday that Anthony Dixon would make the team. That means Rock Cartwright most likely won’t. It makes sense, I suppose, if you get your fingers in there for some careful

Mile High Meh

The third preseason game against Denver was nothing to write home about. But, nobody writes home about practice games anyway. The game was nationally televised, with FOX’s number one broadcasting team on hand, and Denver used the opportunity to show

Halfway House

The 49ers play Denver next Sunday. Hmmmm. What will the storyline be? Aldon Smith vs Von Miller? The return of Perrish Cox? Hmmm…. Traditionally, the third exhibition game is viewed as the most meaningful of the meaningless games. The starters

Thunder and Lightning

The 49ers did not unveil their super terrific, tricky and prolific passing game against the Vikings last week, and we’re not likely to see it during the remaining three exhibition games. For the past few years, the Niners have been

Easy Peasey

Friday’s opening exhibition game was quite an improvement over last year’s opening debacle in New Orleans. I wish it meant something more significant than polite applause. Still, it was football and we now get to see it every week till

Restocked, Reloaded, & Ready

The three day mini-vacation from the All About Alex show has come and gone. The 49ers added depth and competition with their five Day 3 draft picks and loaded up for next year’s draft, too. How Belichickian. But for this

Draft Daze 2012

The 2012 Draft is finally here! At last. My mock hath runneth over. So far, I’ve seen predictions the 49ers will trade up, trade back, or select Stephen Hill, Rueben Randle, Kendall Wright, Coby Fleener, Amini Silatolu, Kevin Zeitler, Peter

Inappropriate Whatever

The blogs might be bonkering out in New Orleans these days, but they’re pretty quiet in San Francisco. The draft is only two weeks away, but it is not being fondled with the same lustful fingers as drafts in past

Upside Down Future

The 49ers have been gathering players from the top of the Draft for seven of the past eight years. Those plumb pickings will not be seen again for many, many years. I’d like to say they’ll never be seen again,

Fake Games Farewell

The 49ers saved the best till last in the 2011 NFL Preseason exhibition fake games. As a side note, they won the contest 20-17, but who cares about that? The big story was the 49ers’ first team offense rising from

Big Easy Wasn’t

The 49ers will not have a perfect preseason record this year. That’s good. However, they certainly didn’t need to be so emphatic about getting beat. Most of the blame for this ignominious debut can be placed at the feet of

Ten New, One Old

The first draft of the Trent Baalke/Jim Harbaugh era is now in the books. National opinion of their collaborative effort was a resounding meh. The folks at 4949 Centennial Blvd., however, seemed positively giddy at what they had wrought. The

Origins of Species

The 49ers will be without Frank Gore for the remainder of the season. In his place, we will see a two back rotation featuring Brian Westbrook and Anthony Dixon. Neither of these two leg churners specializes in pounding the ball

49ers Win Scrub Bowl 17-14

The 49ers closed out the 2010 Exhibition Season by beating the Chargers 17-14 in a largely empty Candlestick Park stadium. There were no initial reports of any serious injuries. Whew!!! The emergence of Phillip Adams has got to be the

Fortunate Follies

The 49ers have been a bit lucky in recent days. Some might ask, “What are you talking about, Mr. Skeebaloney? We’ve had two guys flake out on us in the past week, wasting a 2008 1st round pick and a

Ready, Set, Splat!

We wait seven months and 14 days to see the San Francisco 49ers again trot out onto the field and Michael Robinson promptly fumbles on the very first play. I was laughing for ten minutes after that pratfall. Then the

Squinting at the Horizon

Last week’s OTAs did not generate much hyperbole in the blogosphere, making it a ratings failure as entertainment. There are three more OTA sessions scheduled for June, but it is doubtful they will fare much better in stirring the blood

Touch Football Time

The NFL, with its uncanny ability to invent mumbo jumbo speak, has come up with a tortured term for this time of the year, dubbing it “Organized Team Activities” (OTAs). A true mouthful of Spam. Do they have high level

Third & One, Baby

This 2010 Draft is the most intriguing 49ers draft in many years. Three guys were drafted with the initial and specific task of converting short yardage 3rd & 4th down plays. One guy was drafted who can take the opposing
