Browns 24, 49ers 10

The Blaine Gabbert Era turned a jubilant corner last week against the Bears, only to run smack into a brick wall this week in Cleveland. The two win Browns completely dominated the game, out gaining the 49ers 481-221 yards, with

Identity Crisis

Sunday’s game against Arizona is a key division game, but it’s also a key game for another reason. Colin Kaepernick has had two melt down games in his past three starts. Another one this Sunday would rattle the foundations of

49ers 28, Cowboys 17

The San Francisco 49ers bullied their way to a 28-3 halftime lead over the inept Dallas Cowboys, then spent the second half running out the clock, instead of running up the score. How polite. Along the way, Frank Gore went

Plenty of Nothing

Four weeks into Free Agency and the 49ers have done just about nothing, except re-signing some of their own players and picking up some table scraps from other teams. The only FA starter signed was SS Antoine Bethea. He replaced

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

Secondary Helpings

1:00 pm tomorrow the 2014 season is officially underway and the airports will be full of free agents flying hither and yon in search of jobs, money, championships, or playing close to home. The air will be full of hyperbole,

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

Scouting Combine Week

The NFL stirs back to life this week with the annual Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. We’ll be hearing about wingspan, 40 yard dash times, bench presses, Wonderlic scores, and a variety of other goofy measurements and drills — all designed

Seahawks 23, 49ers 17

It was a one man show in Seattle Sunday night — for the 49ers, at least. Colin Kaepernick single handedly kept the team in the game with his 130 yards of running until the fourth quarter, then he single handedly

49ers 34, Vikings 17

We poor, nervous fans got a little clarity Sunday night as the 49er first teamers chucked off the rust, played most of the first half, and took a 20-7 half time lead on the way to cruising past the Vikings

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

Pawn to K-4

It’s July, and we’re two weeks through the awful empty hours between OTAs and Training Camp. Time to get the little play toys out on the board and preside over their fate. While we await the next episode of Extreme

Roster Roulette

Last year, the 49ers returned all 22 starters on offense and defense. Ergo sumatra, there was no place for any of the 2012 rookies to squeeze into the starting lineup. That’s not the case this year. There are three vacancies

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

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

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

Git Along Little Dogies

Sunday was the first monthiversary of the 49ers ignominious Super Bowl defeat. Some of us have moved on and some of us haven’t. Not sure which category I belong in, so maybe there’s a third group of somes that are

Super Bowl Face Plant

The 49ers gagged away their past and maybe their future Sunday night, losing disgracefully to the POS Baltimore Ravens 34-31. They were outcoached and outplayed by an inferior team in the biggest game of the year. Shameful. The 49ers had

Bayou Beat Down

The San Francisco 49ers swamped the NFL drama market all week with HC Jim Harbaugh’s C’mon Man! manure machine and then backed it up on Sunday in New Orleans, stomping the home town heroes 31-21 and putting a fork in

Hey, Kids! What Time Is It?

The Buffalo Bills are coming to town Sunday and who knows what we’ll get from them? They can play you tough or completely fall apart at a moment’s notice. I’d take them lightly, but after the Minnesota game, I’m not

They Might Not Be Giants

The refs we used to hate are back. Are the 49ers we used to love back, too? The 2012 season hits the quarter pole this weekend and a 49er victory will give them the same record as they had last

Et tu, Brute?

The past week has showed us that predicting Trent Baalke’s game plans is not a good way to make a living. He fooled everyone last year and he’s done it again this year. We expected big news last year, and
