Falcons 41, 49ers 13

The 49ers rolled to their 13th straight loss Sunday in Atlanta, extending their franchise record for consecutive losses. They also set the franchise record for most rushing yards given up in a season, which now stands at 2,468 yards. And

Another Trip to the Woodshed

Last Sunday, Atlanta laid such a relentless whipping on the Rams that it sent LA’s HC Jeff Fisher out the door and into the unemployment line. Next Sunday, the Falcons will quite likely administer the same sort of beat down

49ers 17, Falcons 16

A funny thing happened on the 49ers journey toward the number one pick in the 2016 draft. They screwed up and won a game against the fading Atlanta Falcons. Little did they know that their much maligned backup QB Blaine

49ers 34, Falcons 24

The 49ers closed down Candlestick in epic fashion Monday night, parlaying the worst defensive outing of the year into a nail-biting, season on the brink, game ending moment, and then watching Navorro Bowman save the day with a legendary 89

Heart of a Champion

Before the NFC Championship Game, former San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo referred to the upcoming game as “just a warm up.” As it turned out, he was eerily correct. The 49ers took a quarter to warm up, while the

Break On Through

Here we are again. One year later and one game away from a trip to the Super Bowl. The 49ers must prevail Sunday or the world will surely end. Once again Jim Harbaugh and John Harbaugh both have their teams

You Ain’t Got A Thing, If You Ain’t Got That “Ing”

The NFC Championship Game will feature the number 1 and 2 seeds in the playoffs. How quaintly proper. And there are no wildcard entrants still in the running from either conference. Terrif! The four remaining teams all earned their way

1998 Redux

What a great weekend of football. Mostly. Two down to the wire thrillers, and two blow outs — one enjoyable, one boring. Which reminds me, the AFC truly sucks. How about getting some decent teams over there? Peyton Manning is

Prove It Or Lose It

The last time the 49ers were in an NFC Title Game was 1998, against the Atlanta Falcons. The previous week, the team had finally beaten their nemesis, Brett Farve and the Packers, and hopes were high that another SB title

Mission Accomplished

Things got a bit sweaty in the fourth quarter Sunday, but the 49ers limped out of St. Louis with a 34-27 victory, securing the number two seed in the playoffs, and the much needed week off that goes with this

The Homestretch

Monday Night’s game in the Superdome just about guaranteed that the 49ers will not be letting up in the month of December. Nobody, even the Packers, wants to end up in New Orleans during the playoffs. If the 49ers can

The Rhett Butler Division

Moving along to the NFC South, let’s look at the four teams that the 49ers will play this coming year. Tampa Bay is this division’s doormat and will be so again this year. Historically, this franchise has been a pretty
