Thumb Twiddling

Looks like we’ll be getting a 17 game season in a year or two, with an extra wild card team in each conference. And only the top seeded team in each conference will get a BYE week in the playoffs.

Lap Falling Syndrome

Well, it’s almost here. After the Super Bowl and the Presidential Election, the NFL Draft is probably the third most overhyped event in America. Apparently, the 49ers are going to take a linebacker, a cornerback, an offensive lineman, or trade

As the QB Turns

The Super Bowl next Sunday will be a win-lose proposition for 49er fans. One of these despised franchises will have to lose the game, but one of them will have to win it, too. We’ll either see Bill Belichick and

Orlando Gazette

49ers HC Jim Harbaugh says Frank Gore has three more good years left in his tank. He also says the team needs a 3rd WR who can get open and make plays. If this site endorsed sarcasm, we might reply,

Trade Winds

Pro Football Talk has been busy the past week trying to characterize the 49er front office as a powder keg, citing sources that mostly emanate from the Browns’ FO, a group trying to spin themselves into some sort of scenario

Rolling the Dice

Both the Patriots and the 49ers have been to three straight Conference Championship games. They’ve each lost twice and won once. They’ve both lost their one Super Bowl appearance. That’s the franchise company the 49ers find themselves in. The big

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

Face Off in Foxborough

The last time the 49ers played the Patriots was 2008, a 30-21 loss at Candlestick. Matt Cassel was the Patriot QB and Mike Nolan was the 49er Head Coach. Nolan was fired two games later and Cassel is now sucking

J. O. Y. to the World

It’s been almost six days and Aldon Smith has not been arrested, stabbed, sued, blackmailed, or injured while hang gliding. Way to go, big guy! Only 21 more days on your own that you can screw up before falling under

Crime and Punishment

The draft is two and a half weeks off, the first offseason practices are a week away, and the Gregg Williams scandal is threatening to end life on earth, as we know it. The players involved in Bountygate have yet

All Along The Watchtower

Twelve teams have reportedly contacted Peyton Manning’s agent about getting Manning to come play QB for them. That’s over one third of the teams in the NFL that don’t think much of their current QB. And eleven of those teams

Mild, Mild West

Thanks in large part to the resurgent 49ers, the NFC West lost its distinction last year as the worst Division in the NFL. Thanks in large part to the catastrophic collapse of the Colts, the AFC South assumed that dunce

RIP 2011

Welcome to the San Francisco 49ers’ 2012 Offseason! There’s nothing happening. Yet. But at least the pretenders are finally off the stage. Nice game Sunday, but the best game of the postseason was Saints vs Niners. Either one of those

Forward to the Past

We now interrupt this scintillating political debate (cough, cough) to bring you some stale football news, which is what we normally do here, even though it’s obviously a tougher sell than politics. All you need for a rip snorting marathon

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 Exorcist

Rams quarterback Sam Bradford has been publicly wringing his hands about having to learn a new playbook in his second season. Ha ha. Whiner. Try learning a new one every year for five straight years, Sam, then get back to

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

New Staff, New Era

Jim Harbaugh has been putting together a pretty impressive staff this past week. On paper, anyway. Yesterday, one of the reputed top special teams coaches in the league, Brad Seely, left his job with the Browns to sign up with

And the Winner Is . . .

Last summer, this site vowed not to discuss the expiring Collective Bargaining Agreement between NFL players and management during the 2010 season. And we did not. However, at least for the 49ers and 19 other teams, the season is now

Rolling The Dice

A 49er loss to the Cardinals next Sunday would give the team that was going to win the NFC West the number five pick in the 2011 draft. Egads. What a spectacular flop. Unfortunately, the team will probably win the
