It’s been 20 years since the 49ers last won a Super Bowl. During that time of failure and boredom, all of us have gone from young dumb guys to old dumb guys. If they go another 20 without one, some

New Blood

When the 49ers start the 2014 season, almost half the defense will be different than the one that started the 2013 season. DC Vic Fangio will have his biggest challenge since taking over the job in 2011. The team will

Secondary Helpings

1:00 pm tomorrow the 2014 season is officially underway and the airports will be full of free agents flying hither and yon in search of jobs, money, championships, or playing close to home. The air will be full of hyperbole,

Pawn to K-4

It’s July, and we’re two weeks through the awful empty hours between OTAs and Training Camp. Time to get the little play toys out on the board and preside over their fate. While we await the next episode of Extreme

Roster Roulette

Last year, the 49ers returned all 22 starters on offense and defense. Ergo sumatra, there was no place for any of the 2012 rookies to squeeze into the starting lineup. That’s not the case this year. There are three vacancies

Tampering Week

The blossoms are on the trees these days, coloring up the bleak winter view, and attracting the sleek black crows to the nests of robins where they can eagerly gobble up the little robinettes, ending their poor little lives before

Comings and Goings

The 2012 Free Agency period roared into action Tuesday afternoon, as it usually does. What was not usual was the 49ers being among the early roarers. Last year, they waited till all the roaring had subsided before picking through the

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

Lunch Lips

Trent Baalke hit the lotto two years in a row with his third round picks — NaVorro Bowman and Chris Culliver. Neither pick drew oohs and aahs at the time. More like who’s and wha’s. Bowman stepped in for Takeo

Away From the Lights

Last year, the Eagles won the Free Agency PR title and were promptly awarded a berth in the 2011 Super Bowl. Hmmmm. Is “oops” too strong a word? The actual Free Agency winner was the guy who laid in the

Value Added Software

Two weeks from Free Agency lift off. Contrary to last year, there aren’t a lot of skeptics who will be howling if Trent Baalke sits out the first week of action. Baalke was a very cool customer last year, as

Roster MRI

Cheer up Kyle Williams. You goated it in front of 69,000,000 viewers, but Wes Welker clanked to the turf in front of 118,000,000. That is a whopping 49,000,000 more You Sucks on his head than yours. Feeling a little lighter

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
