Pom Pom Fever

There was a lot of excitement for Jim Harbaugh‘s first season as the 49er HC, but it was muted somewhat by the shortened Training Camp, due to the long battle over the new CBA, which lowered hopes for what he

Getting Real

After two days of air guitar practices, the 49er players put on the pads Sunday and started banging on each other for real. Ah, it may not be as sweet as the smell of napalm in the morning, but for

OTA Week III of IV

The boys will be back at it again today, whatever “it” is. A closely guarded state secret, mostly. Then again, what’s there to reveal about practices? They got the blocking sleds, the little pads and cones that guys do the

Second Helpings

Very few people were impressed last year when Trent Baalke got the GM job. Jed York promised a nationwide search and in the end opted for status quo. Baalke did not have a lot of experience and 49er fans were

Coping Machinationisms

I’m trying to feel lousy about the 49ers losing the NFC Championship game, but it isn’t working. I feel bad, certainly. But not lousy. If I was a Packers fan or a Saints fan, I would feel lousy. Those two

The Outsider likes to spoof former 49er head coach Mike Nolan because it’s fun and it always riled up the Igloo Man who has evidently departed the premises. But, with Tuesday’s Pro Bowl announcements, Nolan’s last draft here, the 2007

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

Best in the West

Eight years of Dweeb football came to a resounding end Sunday at Candlestick. The 49ers completely stomped the Rams in a game that had zero sweaty moments. Not once, even for a second, was this game in doubt. NFC West

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

Stuffed and Basted

The San Francisco 49ers Magical Mystery Tour ran out of hallucinogens Thursday night and the team crashed back to reality. Bummer, man. Not hard to figure this game out. Nine sacks. 125 yards of game altering penalties. Short end of

44:16 – 15:44

The Arizona Cardinals splattered against the San Francisco 49ers’ windshield Sunday and were scraped off the field with their guts squashed out all over the place. Get the Windex, please. And call the entomology coroner. The 49ers played Sunday’s game

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

Fly Me To The Moon

Don’t look now, but we could be seeing a reprise of the late ’90’s battle for NFC supremacy between the 49ers and the Packers. With the exception of one uncalled Jerry Rice fumble and subsequent last second Steve Young TD

Nots Worth Forest

The 49ers got some good news Tuesday, as both Michael Crabtree and Braylon Edwards were cleared to play — Crabtree from the PUP list and Edwards from the Commissioner’s doghouse. Also cleared was Frank Gore’s disrespected heart, as the workhorse

Numero Uno Casino

Perhaps we should return to just UQB. My previous post seems to have Smithed everyone off! At any rate, Mr. Unnamed was in the news again Tuesday as Jim Harbaugh announced he was creating “separation” from Colin Kaepernick in the
