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

So Near and Yet So Far

Let’s see: the 49ers have lost five in a row to the Seattle Seahawks. Of course, all those losses came with Colin Kaepernick at QB. This Sunday, Blaine Gabbert will be at the helm, attempting to end the string of

Halftime Highlights

Halfway through the season, the Niners have become the musical chairs franchise. QBs in, QBs out. RBs in, RBs out. CBs in, CBs out. TEs in, TEs out. RG and RT in and out and in and out. Apparently, our

49ers 17, Falcons 16

A funny thing happened on the 49ers journey toward the number one pick in the 2016 draft. They screwed up and won a game against the fading Atlanta Falcons. Little did they know that their much maligned backup QB Blaine

Recycling Center

Blaine Gabbert. Not exactly a power-packed name. Kind of dribbles off your tongue like a fumbled hike from the center. But, Blaine it is. And he has one sure thing going for him: he’s not Colin Kaepernick. We’ll find out

Rams 27, 49ers 6

The 49ers ran their perfect non-winning road streak to 4 games Sunday by flying to St. Louis and straight into the Rams windshield, where they were scraped off 27-6. In losing their sixth game in eight tries, the 49ers put

Hidden Agenda

The 49ers travel to St. Louis this weekend for what might be the last time, if rumors of the Rams moving to Los Angeles prove accurate. The Rams are in second place in the NFC West at 3-3. That’s right

Stuck Inside of Mobile

The 49ers have been soundly beaten by the Cardinals and the Seahawks. They’ll get whipped again by each of them this year. Next Sunday we’ll find out if they get trashed by the Rams, too. And with the fearsome front

Seahawks 20, 49ers 3

The San Francisco 49ers’ two game flirtation as a bona fide NFL entity came to a screeching halt Thursday night as the Seattle Seahawks pounded them into oblivion, ravaged their village, stole their manhood, ran off with their wives, and

49ers 25, Ravens 20

In a battle of bleeding franchises, the 49ers leaked less than the Ravens Sunday, stopping their four game losing streak and notching their second win of the 2015 season. With the loss, the Ravens put themselves in contention for a

Battle of the Suckitudes

The 49er players are treating their loss to the Giants as some sort of team victory and a sign that their fortunes are on the way up. That illusion has a chance to be bolstered this weekend with an actual

Giants 30, 49ers 27

Close, but no seegar. For the second straight week, the 49ers wracked up a moral victory. And also lost their fourth game in a row. Last week, the defense was respectable and the offense stunk. This week the offense actually

Dumping Ground

It was a nation wide dump on Colin Kaepernick week. It’s gotten so bad, even your faithful steely-eyed scribbler has begun to feel sorry for the poor kid. If he stinks it up again in New York next Sunday night,

Packers 17, 49ers 3

The 49ers were beaten thoroughly by the Packers Sunday, 17-3, in what passes this season as a “nail biter.” Green Bay took a seven point lead in the first quarter, and even though the Niners were always within reach according

Big Ass Parade

49er QB Colin Kaepernick laid a huge ass egg last Sunday in Arizona. He’s taken a big ass beating from the press all week because of it. An agonizing event like that can break a guy. Or it can be

Cardinals 47, 49ers 7

As Denny Green would say, more or less: “They are who we thought they were!” For the second straight week, the 49ers endured a complete butt whipping. Last week Pittsburgh did the honors 43-18, and this week Arizona outdid that

Own It, Fix It, Move On

Big game this weekend. As big as it gets in Palookaville, that is. Are the 49ers closer to the marginally decent team we saw against Minnesota? Or nearer the fiasco bunch featured in Pittsburgh? Are they a 3 win team

49ers 20, Vikings 3

The 49ers averted the prospect of an 0-16 season Monday night by showing up for the game. The Vikings mistakenly thought it was another pre-season affair and gave Adrian Peterson the night off, while toying with the idea of centering

TC Week Two

The first exhibition game is this Saturday against Houston. Which means we’ll have 49er football games to entertain us each week until January 3rd, when the season ends for our red and gold, or black and atrocious, warriors. Big year

TC Week One

Training Camp is underway and everyone is happier, everyone is faster, and everyone is better. Ah, TC bliss. There’s a lot of hyperbole emanating from camp now as the once mighty men try to psyche themselves up for the tenuous

Coming Soon: The Not Harbaugh Era

The NFC West has one team that knows it will be in the playoffs, one team that assumes it will make the playoffs, and one team that hopes to make the playoffs. And one team that will be wildly enthusiastic
