Dink and Dunker Special

The 49ers haven’t won a game in Seattle since the 2011 season. They swept the Seahawks that year, split with them the next two years, and were skunked in 2014 and 2015. Still, our boys have a golden opportunity to

Carolina In My Mind

The 49ers travel to North Carolina this weekend to throw themselves under the Panthers’ playoff bus on Sunday. At least, that’s the general view around the league and in Las Vegas. Apparently, the blow out win over the Rams did

49ers 28, Rams 0

Well, that was surprising. Not the victory so much as the magnitude of it. Chip Kelly and Blaine Gabbert, two NFL entities pretty much consigned to the scrap heap by league “experts” and “insiders,” stuck the old thumb in the

Broncos 24, Panthers 10

So that’s it. Another NFL season hits the pavement in search of its place in history. Super Bowl 50 looks like a perfect candidate for the “Just Win, Baby” division. In the “Defense Wins Championships” category. One of my favorite

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

49ers 23, Panthers 10

The Carolina Panthers came out in the first half geeked up on adrenalin and tried to bully the San Francisco 49ers off the field. Despite all their huffing and puffing, the Niners used an opening drive and a closing drive

Quarterfinal Weekend

Cam Newton vs Colin Kaepernick. Tom Brady vs Andrew Luck. Peyton Manning vs Phillip Rivers. Russell Wilson vs Drew Brees. Wow. The Divisional Quarterfinals looks like a Home Run Derby of QBs. The AFC matchups don’t figure to lend much

On The Road

Welcome to 2014, fellow Outsiders! We are now in the sudden death time of year. Each 49er game might be the last we see them until next August. Scary. It’s also 0-0 time and any team can catch fire, luck,

Dancing with the Stars

As most fans are aware, blog superstar Alex Smith will be coming into our view Friday as QB of the Kansas City Chiefs, our second preseason opponent. For the Smith Haters, this will be a chance to root against the

All Wanking Spanners to the Plow

We’re almost there. Eight days until Training Camp starts and the 2013 season opens for business. If memory serves, the rookies report in first, followed a couple days later by the veterans. The most anticipated scene of the first day

For Their Eyes Only

We’re half way through the offseason. And less than a week away from the resumption of football related activity. Rookie minicamp begins this Friday, May 10th, and lasts three days. A week and a half later, on May 21, the

NFC Rules

Trent Baalke’s drafts don’t tend to light a fire under the fan base that burns brightly for several weeks, accompanied by lots of gushing and slobbering. Just the opposite. Head scratching is more like it. With Baalke, you have to

Humbug Gazette

It’s 2013, as you non-hibernating bipeds may have noticed, which means the Mayan’s tenuous grasp of life on earth has been relegated to the basement wing of The Knowledge Building. Down there with the earth is flat fellows. As usual

The Earth Moved

Wow. I didn’t see RGII’s debut game or Cam Newton’s last year, but given the national stage, the playoff implications, and the quality of the opponent, I don’t see how either of those guys could have been better than Colin

Semester Break

The 49ers zoomed into sole possesion of first place in the NFC West Sunday by lounging pool side while watching Arizona get stuffed by Minnesota. Next Monday night, the team will get to stuff Arizona themselves. Meanwhile, Seattle CB Richard

Black and Blue Beat Down

Whew! Game ball to the 49er offensive line and Frank Gore. With the season on the brink of slipping away, the 49ers came out in the second half Thursday night, awoke from the fog that marked their first half efforts,

Remember the Farvemo

Next up on the 49ers sack and pillage tour of the NFC North are the Minnesota Vikings. A few years back, the Vikes had the Williams Wall that prevented anyone from running up the middle on them. Age and PEDs

Around the Horn

The second week of OTAs has come and gone, which is the good news. We are one week closer to the start of Training Camp. With only three changes to the starting lineup this year — Randy Moss replacing Josh

The Betting Window Is Open

[UPDATE: Monday evening the 49ers signed Randy Moss to a one year contract. See the comment section for the various thoughts of Outsider readers regarding this unexpected development.] Tuesday at 4:00pm EDT, the 2012 Free Agency gates swing open, freeing

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

Last Call for 2011 Draftniks

Hummmmm Baby! The 2011 NFL Draft Week has mercifully arrived. This year’s draft class has been pawed, poked, analyzed, and shuffled up and down the boards for three long empty months now. It’s Show Time, fake college boys! Last year

See Ya Later, Alligator

Judge Susan Nelson basically flipped the bird at the players and owners in Minnesota Wednesday, and loudly implied that they both quit dicking around and get a deal worked out. The ball’s in her court and that’s where it’s staying.
