Beware the Curse of the Three

If the 49ers were a long established contender, this Sunday might be considered a “trap game.” But the current team is still trying to prove it belongs, so it’s unlikely they will be taking any team lightly this year. Every

Trivial Pursuits

The AFC SB contestants are a never ending parade of Peyton Manning teams, Tom Brady, and Ben Roethlisberger, with a one year fluke appearances by Joe Flacco, Trent Dilfer, and Rich Gannon. Going on 16 years now. Just those 3.03

Steelers 43, 49ers 18

Oooo! Ouchhh! Uncle! No mas!! The 49ers absorbed their worst beating since the Mike Singletary era Sunday in Pittsburgh, getting squashed by the Steelers 43-18. The game was a nip and tuck, see-saw 0-0 battle until the second Steeler possession,

Transgressions Large and Larger

Spent the weekend agonizing over which was worse: clubbing a teammate with a beer bottle (Ahmad Brooks) or giving the finger to the entire 49er fan base (Colin Kaepernick). Drunken beligerence or clueless arrogance. Brooks is a defensive line type

The Future, The Past, The Guillotine

The 2012 Offseason is now open for business and the wonderful players on the 2011 49er team are no longer Our Boys, but our chess pawns. Sorry, guys. It’s a cruel business. Unless you’re a star, which we wish you

Highway 49 Revisited

The first round of the 2011 playoffs is in the books, with all four home teams winning. There will be no wild card entrants advancing to the Super Bowl this year. Football purists everywhere are pleased. And so is everyone

Less Is More

Thanks to the number one rated defense, a mistake free offense, good special teams, and punter Andy Lee, the 49ers have won the field position battle in almost every game this year. Usually by a whopping margin. This helps the

Pittsburgh Aluminums Foiled

20,000+ Steeler fans made a very poor investment of their time and money Monday night. Har har hardy har har! Eat it, you towel wavers. The only thing terrible at Candlestick was your team! Well, there was the missing electricity,

Reasonable Doubt

The pundits don’t seem to think the 49ers can beat the Steelers Monday night. Perhaps these fellows are right. Fortunately, they are just as apt to be wrong. Wow. Some eye-popping upsets yesterday. Two games left in the 2011 NFL

Lower the Casket

The 2010 NFL season is now officially toast. The people in Green Bay and their fans in other cities and towns will try to keep it open for the next six months, but for the other 31 NFL franchises it

The Superless Bowl

When the Packers settled for a field goal and a six point lead on their final drive in yesterday’s Super Bowl, I thought they had just lost the game. There were two minutes and seven seconds left. Plenty of time

February Sucks

It’s February 1st today and all football fans know what that means. The most useless month of the year has arrived. Tomorrow, somewhere in New Hampshire or Maine or one of those hoity-toit states up there in the northeast corner

Pick Your Poison

The Super Bowl is the only football game Skeebette ever watches or has any interest in. It’s not the game she cares about, though, it’s the ads and the half time show that draw her interest. Plus, she enjoys shaking

IT Came From Outer Space

The IT factor is tossed around on the blogosphere on an almost daily basis. NFL players must possess this undefinable somethingness or they can never be considered true championship caliber HOF dudes. Alex Smith, of course, was the foremost player
