49ers 22, Chiefs 17

The San Francisco 49ers squeeeeeeeeeeeaked by the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday afternoon in Santa Clara, on a sweltering hot day featuring two bread and butter, meat and potatoes, lunch bucket blue collar football teams. The Chiefs started fast with two

August Previews

For the past few years, the 49er starting lineup has been a pat hand heading into Training Camp. It can be debated whether they have had the lowest form of pat hand — a straight — or a somewhat higher

Trading Places

The 49ers threw themselves into the opening Free Agency scrum with vigor, swapping out departing SS Donte Whitner with SS Antoine Bethea, trading low round draft picks for backup QB Blaine Gabbert and reclamation project Olineman Jonathan Martin, and re-signing

Dollar Daze

Four days left until the Free Agency period begins and the 49ers have re-signed only one of their twelve pending FAs — Anquan Boldin. Prominent among the unsigned players are K Phil Dawson, SS Donte Whitner, and CB Tarell Brown

Table Scraps

February bids us adieu today and you won’t catch me shedding any tears for this midget month. Condolences to all of you born in this end of the Zodiac squirt. Trust me, it explains everything that’s gone wrong in your

Battle in Seattle

That was a fun first week of the return of NFL football. Let’s hope next Monday morning “fun” will still be in our vocabulary and not replaced with “Aaaaaarrrrghhhhh!!” Fun wasn’t on the menu for Tampa Bay fans. They had

Dubious Assessments

The top story of Training Camp so far has been injuries. Let’s hope this is just an early season rash, and not a season long epidemic. The wide receivers have been hardest hit, with six of them standing on the

Mighty Men III Begins

Rookies and selected veterans practiced in full pads Monday and Tuesday. There were no catastrophic injuries reported in this first round of torso colliding. Bravo, lads! Only six more months of pounding to go. Proving they are in mid-season form

Fab Rehab Team

The second of three OTAs begins Tuesday and hopefully we will not hear anything newsworthy from this three day practice session. If there’s real news, it’s going to be bad. Otherwise, everyone is looking great and ready to have a

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

Beat the Clock

Draft week has finally arrived. But Draft day hasn’t. So, we’ll save our in depth one sentence draft coverage till Thursday. What’s important today — or should I say tonight — is the awesome meteor shower that will supposedly turn

Board Walk

Poking around the internet through the various mock drafts, it appears the consensus first round pick the 49ers are expected to make is FS Eric Reid. Or Alabama DT Jesse Williams. Or LSU SS Matt Elam, or S Jonathan Cyprien

The Juice Bar

The offseason has been kind of a clunker so far. No oomph, no passion, no blockbuster deals — not much more than recycling some warm bodies. And coping with Super Bowl Loser syndrome. The Draft is two weeks off. Maybe

Lip O Suck Shun

Easter has come and gone, and those of you who attempt to give devout behavior at least a smidgeon of your attention can now ease back into your wicked and sinful ways. Those of you who are devoutless devotees can

April Love

Folklore maintains that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb, as the last cold blasts of winter give way to the Pat Boone days of spring. Folklore is buttressed, astrologically speaking, by the constellation of

Bargain Hunting

The 2013 offseason has been a bit of a yawner so far. Not that we expected much more. When you have fourteen draft picks, it’s pretty obvious where the mustard will be squoozed this year. Getting Anquan Boldin for virtually

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
