Trivial Pursuits

The AFC SB contestants are a never ending parade of Peyton Manning teams, Tom Brady, and Ben Roethlisberger, with a one year fluke appearances by Joe Flacco, Trent Dilfer, and Rich Gannon. Going on 16 years now. Just those 3.03

49ers 16, Giants 10

Trap Game Warning

Most of us thought we’d be talking this week about a 4-5 team whose playoff chances were dangling by their last flimsy thread, needing to win out to get into the postseason. I might have led off this piece by

Quarterfinal Weekend

Cam Newton vs Colin Kaepernick. Tom Brady vs Andrew Luck. Peyton Manning vs Phillip Rivers. Russell Wilson vs Drew Brees. Wow. The Divisional Quarterfinals looks like a Home Run Derby of QBs. The AFC matchups don’t figure to lend much

Alas, Poor Yorick

Watching former 49er head coach Mike Nolan’s Atlanta defense get shredded Monday night by the Jets(!) and failing to protect the lead in the last two minutes of the game was a painful reminder that it was not so long

All Wanking Spanners to the Plow

We’re almost there. Eight days until Training Camp starts and the 2013 season opens for business. If memory serves, the rookies report in first, followed a couple days later by the veterans. The most anticipated scene of the first day

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

So Far, So Good

Facial Recognition Teamware

The 49ers’ first three day OTA has concluded. There will now be a four day rest period before the next OTA. Gasp. Wheeze. C’mon, man! What we’ve learned so far is that Frank Gore is primed for another year of

Comings and Goings

The 2012 Free Agency period roared into action Tuesday afternoon, as it usually does. What was not usual was the 49ers being among the early roarers. Last year, they waited till all the roaring had subsided before picking through the

Milk Carton Man

Most of the time, disappearing acts and football are not a good combination. Ask Michael Crabtree, who vanished during the playoffs. But someone else dropped off the radar screen in 2011, too, and it was a very good thing. One

The Future, The Past, The Guillotine

The 2012 Offseason is now open for business and the wonderful players on the 2011 49er team are no longer Our Boys, but our chess pawns. Sorry, guys. It’s a cruel business. Unless you’re a star, which we wish you

Heaven Can Wait

Old adages die hard. Over the weekend, the two most potent offenses in the NFC were sent packing by the two best defensive teams. In the AFC, the best defense is left to face the best offense, which only got

Dancing With The Stars

This year’s NFC final four is a true national tournament. We’ve got the Giants representing the East, Green Bay the North, New Orleans the South, and San Francisco the West. Groovy. A perfect symmetry. And late Saturday afternoon, the 49er

Mission Accomplished

Things got a bit sweaty in the fourth quarter Sunday, but the 49ers limped out of St. Louis with a 34-27 victory, securing the number two seed in the playoffs, and the much needed week off that goes with this

Elite Meet

Sunday’s 49ers opponent, the NY Giants, are on a bit of a roll. They have won three straight games. A squeaker at home over Buffalo, another home squeaker versus Miami, and a road squeaker over the Patriots. Perhaps they should

Base Camp Established

At the halfway point of the 2011 NFL season, Hell has frozen over, the sun now rises in the west, and the San Francisco 49ers sit atop the NFC West standings. Shit, Martha, have I died and gone to Heaven?
