Patriots 30, 49ers 17

Inspired by the presence of Eddie Debartolo and a host of star players from the glory years, the current 49ers made their own history Sunday afternoon by losing their record tying ninth straight game. Next weekend, they’ll travel to Miami

Nothing But Nyet

The evil New England Patriots come to town this Sunday, looking to beat up on the local boys. Chances are better than good they’ll do exactly that. The defense finally stopped getting traumatized by opposing teams’ rushing attacks last Sunday.

Cardinals 23, 49ers 20

Phew! That was close. The 49ers almost blew their shot at history on Sunday afternoon, but in the final two minutes of the game, they rallied to let Carson Palmer lead the Cardinals on a 12 play, 62 yard drive

Coming Attractions

Two more weeks and this long, dreary offseason will end. Hallelujah! Or, as they say in the cartoon world, “Hot d-d-diggedy d-d-dog!” Some of you might not be feeling elated about the coming season. Condolences. It’s true the 49ers are

Broncos 24, Panthers 10

So that’s it. Another NFL season hits the pavement in search of its place in history. Super Bowl 50 looks like a perfect candidate for the “Just Win, Baby” division. In the “Defense Wins Championships” category. One of my favorite

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

Hyper Kiper Time

The 2015 Schedule was released last Tuesday night. It looks like the only thing standing in the way of a perfect 0-8 start is the pesky opening game versus Minnesota. Even if the 49ers win that game — and they

Spring Equiknocks

The 49ers hired a new head coach after the 2014 season, so they can begin their offseason workout program earlier than other more stable franchises. The first workout begins in two weeks, on April 6. It’s entirely possible that we’ll

Custer’s Last Stand

Tuning into the Seattle game this Sunday has all the allure to a 49er fan as a trip to a Third World dentist. Unless you’re a sadomasochist, this is not going to be a pleasant experience. As I see it,

Bye Bye Candlestick

There’s a 49er football game Monday night, but it will be somewhat overshadowed by the hoopla surrounding the final game to be played at Candlestick before the team moves to Santa Clara next year. If the Cardinals lose Sunday in

Transgressions Large and Larger

Spent the weekend agonizing over which was worse: clubbing a teammate with a beer bottle (Ahmad Brooks) or giving the finger to the entire 49er fan base (Colin Kaepernick). Drunken beligerence or clueless arrogance. Brooks is a defensive line type

Heart of a Champion

Before the NFC Championship Game, former San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo referred to the upcoming game as “just a warm up.” As it turned out, he was eerily correct. The 49ers took a quarter to warm up, while the

Heroes and Heartbreaks

Eddie Debartolo thinks the 49ers should beat Green Bay Saturday night because they have a better team. Short, simple, and basic. Best team wins. This formula proved perfect in last weekend’s wild card games. Best team won in all four

Was It Good For You, Too?

Which one is the loser? It was exciting subbing in for New York this past two weeks, but a little exhausting. Thankfully, the Jets have reclaimed the news feed throne by trading for Tim Tebow, bringing it all back home

Standards of Excellence

If you live in the Bay Area, it’s easy to recognize that the 49ers are once again a proud and fashionable franchise. 49er apparelled torsos and torsoettes walk the streets, go to the banking window, shop at the malls, and

The Thirteenth Man

When the 2010 season began, the first five 49er games of the season were widely viewed as two easy wins (KC and Seattle), two sure losses (Saints and Atlanta), and one toss-up (Eagles). As it turned out, all five of

Dances with Luck

Eddie Debartolo is a revered figure in 49er land, and rightly so. It was during his tenure, that the 49ers won five Super Bowls and were an NFL powerhouse for 20+ years. However, he was, in the long run, a
