Tough Guys Don’t Dance

The 49ers have generously added yet another game for our viewing pleasure this year with their victory over the Panthers. This will be the third straight year the team has advanced to the NFC Championship Game. Bravo lads! Has it

Nail Biting Yawner

The last time the 49ers played the Tennessee Titans, RB Chris Johnson was chugging along toward a 2,000 yard season and Vince Young was the QB. They came to Candlestick with a 1-6 record and beat us 34-27. Each team

Sensible Shoes

The candidates to fill the shoes at nose tackle and free safety — Ian Williams and Eric Reid — both played well in the first exhibition game. The sky, which had been threatening to fall all down upon our 49er

They’re Out There

The 49ers will hold their three day minicamp this week, Tuesday through Thursday. The practices will be open to the public, as mandated by the league. Understandably miffed by this open door dictate, Jim Harbaugh will hold the practices 100

Tough Guys Don’t Dance

Anquan Boldin has been impressive in the OTA practices. A couple of the beat guys even said he looked like a true number one receiver. In seven years with the Cardinals and three with the Ravens, however, he was never

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

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

Something Old, Something Flew

The first days of Free Agency were typically entertaining, and as expected, the 49ers sat out the league wide scrum. Also as expected, Dashon Goldson went trolling for dollars and wound up on the opposite coast in Tampa Bay. Delanie

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

Somebody To Love

The 2013 NFL Scouting Combine begins this week in Indianapolis. It represents a stirring to life from the NFL football coma that we all lapse into after the end of our particular team’s season. An event that takes place on

Wake Me When The Game Begins

The game cannot come soon enough. 100 mouths, 2,000 microphones, and still 5,000 game analyses to go before the kickoff. I put my head in the sand yesterday, but it didn’t work. There were two ostriches down there talking about

Luck Be A Lady

The 49ers repeated as NFC West champs Sunday by whisking aside the crumbling Arizona Cardinals 27-13. Rather than celebrate, the team adjourned to the locker room and did what fans do — anxiously watched the TV end game between Green

Scheme Scream

The San Francisco 49ers squeezed by the Miami Dolphins Sunday afternoon, winning 27-13. It was not an impressive victory, but it did virtually guarantee that the team will make the 2012 playoffs. How far they advance in those playoffs is

Back to Business

The Rams come to Candlestick on Sunday with a chance to tie up their all time series with the 49ers, who currently lead 62-61-2. The chances the Rams will do so? Squat. I probably shouldn’t be so cavalier about their

Landslide Victory

The 49ers crushed the Arizona Cardinals 24-3 on Monday night, sending the team and its fans into the Bye week on a very happy note. As they say in the Life Duhs Anonymous meetings, two weeks of savoring always trumps

49ers Put Out the Cat

The San Francisco 49ers opened the game by forcing a Detroit 3 and out punt, then rolled down the field in four plays for a touchdown, and it looked like the game would be a rout. From that time on,

Wanted: A Few Scary Guys

11-85 is not yet as famous in the Bay Area as 16-80 or 8-80, but a few more years of heroics and a couple of SBs could change that. Alex Smith to Vernon Davis tied an NFL record for TDs

Fourteen Days

Training Camp is now two weeks from lift off and heading into it, the starting lineup appears to be set. This is good, but it also sucks. Most of the mystery of TC will be absent. The pecking order at

Draft Daze 2012

The 2012 Draft is finally here! At last. My mock hath runneth over. So far, I’ve seen predictions the 49ers will trade up, trade back, or select Stephen Hill, Rueben Randle, Kendall Wright, Coby Fleener, Amini Silatolu, Kevin Zeitler, Peter

Inappropriate Whatever

The blogs might be bonkering out in New Orleans these days, but they’re pretty quiet in San Francisco. The draft is only two weeks away, but it is not being fondled with the same lustful fingers as drafts in past

Any Which Way But Lose

It’s Wednesday, which signals an end to the gloating and basking period and a return to fretting over the next game, which just happens to be the NFC Championship Game. One win away from a trip to Super Bowl number

Less Is More

Thanks to the number one rated defense, a mistake free offense, good special teams, and punter Andy Lee, the 49ers have won the field position battle in almost every game this year. Usually by a whopping margin. This helps the
