Midterm Reflections

At the halfway point of the 2012 season, the NFC playoff picture seems pretty clear. For the teams that will be the true SB contenders this year. There will be a scrubeenie entrant, that takes its fans down to the

OTA Week I of IV

The first of three OTAs, plus a concluding minicamp, begins Tuesday. I’m not sure if the players get to actually touch each other yet, let alone play partially real football. The offseason rules of the new CBA are convoluted enough

Barking on a Corner

We all have our squabbles and quibbles about various players on the 49ers, with some fellows probably more prone to squabbilifying than others due to the testicle shrinking weather conditions of the upper Yukon — but, hey, I’m no doctor!

The Spin Doctor Is In

Now that the 49ers’ Front Office has bungled away the feel good atmosphere of the hugely successful 2011 season and reminded us of the ten years of ownership ineptitude which preceded it, everyone can get back to business. And thank

Hangin’ Round the Ink Well

Ink flowing is not normally as fascinating to observe as is paint drying, grass growing, or televised Combine events, but this could change in the next two weeks. The 49ers have until March 13th to re-sign currently held players or

Milk Carton Man

Most of the time, disappearing acts and football are not a good combination. Ask Michael Crabtree, who vanished during the playoffs. But someone else dropped off the radar screen in 2011, too, and it was a very good thing. One

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 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

Rise of the Machine

For those of you who were born too late to witness first hand the San Francisco 49ers’ glory years in the ’80’s and ’90’s, Sunday’s complete demolishing of the Tampa Bay Bucs was the type of game those earlier years

A Debacular Success

Sunday’s 13-8 victory over the Bengals was probably the 49ers’ most exciting and satisfying unwatchable game in many years. And there are a lot of unwatchable games in contention for this distinction. What made this ugly duckling sparkle over the

Fake Games Farewell

The 49ers saved the best till last in the 2011 NFL Preseason exhibition fake games. As a side note, they won the contest 20-17, but who cares about that? The big story was the 49ers’ first team offense rising from

Spine Bottom Roulette

The 49ers’ Training Camp 2011 ended Thursday, and the players broke camp by checking out of their hotel rooms, I guess, because they don’t go anywhere for camp any more. With the new CBA banning two-a-days, you can’t call these

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

FA Brake Down

There’s been a lot of early season jitters as the blogorama shakes off the rust of the long offseason and gets its tonsils game ready. But one week into the new season, the collective nerves seem to be settling down

Hypothetical Hypnosis

On the plus side of no football activity this off season, the 49ers will likely be able to retain the services of Manny Lawson, Dashon Goldson, David Baas, and maybe even Abrayo Franklin or Takeo Spikes, if the team still

The Dog Ate My Alarm Clock

Okay. Here’s why I was late to work today. I went to a wedding Sunday for one of my nephews. Weddings are interesting on one level because they mix together two separate family structures and roots in one room where

To Halve and Halve Not

Not a single game of football was played yesterday, from sea to shining sea. Rudely enough, most of the sports world moved right along to other sports, like basketball, golf, racing, and baseball. Even rugby! This is the sort of

That’ll Be All, Mr. Carr

Looks like Troy Smith will start Sunday’s game for the 49ers, not David Carr. Sounds good to me. We haven’t seen Smith play yet, but we saw Carr last week. More importantly, so did the Denver Broncos. Smith may not

2010 TC V & VI: Mid-Camp Notes

One week into camp and already Mike Iupati and Anthony Davis have moved into the starting lineup, replacing David Baas and Adam Snyder. It’s possible that this is only a temporary move to give both of these rookies as many
