49ers 32, Cardinals 20

Late in the 3rd quarter, the 49ers were clinging to a 22-20 lead, when Patrick Willis stripped the ball from Larry Fitzgerald at the SF 11, Eric Reid recovered, and this looked like a game the team was going to

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

Morning After Pill

Seattle proved Sunday night that they have the loudest bunch of drunks in the world. Their football team, however, has yet to prove they are even a .500 club away from home. They weren’t last year, going 3-5 on the

49ers 34, Packers 28

Whew! The 49ers beat the Packers for the third straight time Sunday, 34-28. It was a seesaw battle between two prolific passing attacks that wasn’t decided until late in the fourth quarter when the Niners scored to take the lead

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

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

We’re Off and Stumbling

The 49ers opened the 2013 season with a 7 minute, 13 play drive that honked out in the Red Zone, forcing them to settle for a FG. Hmmm. That was the all too familiar script in the 2012 season, right

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

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

Open Wide

The 49ers will be having OTAs this week, Tuesday through Thursday. It’s my duty to report these things, even if all of you could care less. There was a time these spring practices were informative, even festive. But those days

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

Class of 2013

The 49ers had three distinct areas of need (D-line, FS, and TE) going into the 2013 Draft and they addressed all three areas in the first two days. Whether the dresses added improve the comeliness of the product to 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
