Coming Attractions

The 49ers have not had a franchise QB since Steve Young was knocked out of the NFL by Aeneas Williams at Arizona in 1999. They won’t have one this year, either. Making it 19 straight years with a deficiency at

Hello Goodbye

The endless pre-Draft piffle machine will finally, mercifully grind to a halt next Thursday night, when the Browns and 49ers step to the podium to make their 2017 first round selections. While DE Myles Garrett is the consensus number one

Uncharted Waters

The Free Agency period seems to have run its course, leaving us with six weeks of mock drafts to grind through. Whizzo. There are still a few big names out there looking for work. Jay Cutler, Jamaal Charles, Adrian Paterson.

Shopping Spree

The Rumor Mill has been spitting out a lot of juicy tidbits the past week, as the FA period nears. Big name cuts, trade scenarios real and ridiculous, and a promise from GM John Lynch that we fans should keep

Seahawks 25, 49ers 23

After a brief foray into the land of the winning, a journey described hysterically by Blaine Gabbert‘s clueless backup as “huge” and “something to build on,” the 49ers reverted quickly back to the norm and tacked on a season ending

The Hour of the Turk Draws Near

One last practice game Thursday night before the Santa Clara Titanic sets off on its 2016 cruise. It might also be the last game of Colin Kaepernick‘s NFL career. The game against San Diego will be played mainly by members

Packers 21, 49ers 10

After sitting out the offseason, and Training Camp, and the preseason, and the National Anthem, Colin Kaepernick finally returned to action Friday night and made a strong case for sitting out the regular season, too. And that’s your 49er highlight

Return of the Prodigal Son

One more preseason game before we can forget about preseason games even though there will be one more preseason game to endure. Friday’s game against the Packers is mainly meaningful because it will mark the first time since the middle

49ers 31, Broncos 24

The San Francisco 49ers outscored the Denver Broncos 31-24 Saturday night, producing their second straight game with 400+ yards of offense. The three 49er QBs rebounded from a less than stellar effort in the first preseason game and finished the

Post Harbaugh, Take II

And so it begins. The Chip Kelly Era is underway. Kelly’s Eagles team last year, while “collapsing” to a 7-9 record after two straight 10-6 seasons, still finished 13th in points scored and 12th in yards — yardage stats that

Camp Karaoke

Another week closer to the start of the 2016 season. And, for the first time since 2009, there will be a QB competition to provide some drama to the exhibition games. Shaun Hill got the nod over Alex Smith in

Up the Down Staircase

The 49ers currently have 39 players on the squad that were selected from the 2013 – 2016 drafts. NaVorro Bowman is the only guy left from the 2010 draft. Nobody left from 2008, 2009, and 2012. Only Colin Kaepernick, Daniel

Chips Ahoy

We’re half way through the offseason, GM Trent Baalke has left the stage, and from here on out it’s the Chip Kelly show. That’s fine. We can get our teeth into Kelly. His results will be immediately evident from the

Move Along, Nothing To See Here

It’s been a quiet offseason for the 49ers so far. Nobody has been arrested for anything or made the news for bad behavior. The team is now both mediocre and boring. This deadly dynamic could change in a couple of

The Bust Maker

The 49ers haven’t come right out and admitted it, but their inactions during the Free Agency period have made it clear they have no intention of trying to be competitive this year. They are not even faking it. The 2016

Standing Pat

Two weeks into the FA period, it looks like GM Trent Baalke has concluded that last year’s 5-11 record wasn’t the least bit his fault. No, the roster’s fine. The record was all the fault of Jim Tomsula and Colin

Late to the Party

The first week of Free (but expensive) Agency roared fat over the middle of the plate and 49er GM Trent Baalke didn’t even take the bat off his shoulder. Steeeeeeeeeeeeeeerike One! Most of the good teams in the league didn’t

Tour de Farce

Chip Kelly got a whirlwind tour of the 49ers’ dysfunctional front office last week. First, the 49ers went public with how excited they were to have Colin Kaepernick on the roster come April 1. Kaepernick’s agents then went public with

Depleted Roster

It’s NFL Combine week, which means that February is down to its last useless week with a schedule of fittingly useless events that showcase certain peculiar athletic skills of a huge pile of college boys. All of this is a

Cardinals 19, 49ers 13

The 49ers lost to the Cardinals Sunday in Santa Clara, imploding their record to 3-8 and 0-5 in the NFC West. But, this is the new Niners and we’ve had to trade in our old adjectives, like mighty and powerful,

The Vultures Are Circling

The 49er players have now firmly taken a back seat to the 49er front office in terms of scrutiny and speculation. The rest of the season will be less and less about whether the team wins or loses games, and

Seahawks 29, 49ers 13

The 49ers kept their road record perfect on Sunday in Seattle, losing 29-13 for their fifth consecutive road loss. Once again, it was the defense that led the way to defeat as Seahawks backup RB Thomas Rawls bulled through them
