Summer Wind

OTAs and minicamp have ended. The players now have five weeks or so of dangerous freedom before the start of Training Camp. Plenty of time to do something insane, like hoisting a huge party, shooting assault rifles from your roof

August Previews

For the past few years, the 49er starting lineup has been a pat hand heading into Training Camp. It can be debated whether they have had the lowest form of pat hand — a straight — or a somewhat higher

Baalke’s Big Adventure

Here we are at last. The 2014 NFL Draft will actually, finally, mercifully take place this week, beginning Thursday evening. The 49ers have the 30th pick in the first round and just about nobody expects them to sit waiting to

Dumpster Diving

The 49ers have been shopping for WRs and CBs the past few days without much success. Apparently, WRs aren’t particularly enchanted about being the 3rd WR on a team that hardly ever uses more than two. This might put a

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,

Half Time Adjustments

The Carolina Panthers are seeing the news coming out of their next opponent’s HQ, which would be our own 49ers, and asking themselves WTF?! At a point in the season where most teams are coping with players lost to injury,

Back To Work Week

On Saturday, Raiders’ HC Dennis Allen said it was time for his team to make its move. Sunday, they did — backwards, losing ignominiously at home to the woeful Eagles 49-20. Back to the drawing board, Dennis. Need a little

Wembley Walk Through

The 49ers mid-season excursion to London will be topped off this Sunday by a demonstration of American style football. The Jacksonville Jaguars have graciously agreed to attend the game and be used as fodder for this demo. Afterwards, the Brits

Class Consciousness

We’re seven weeks into the 2013 season and the league picture is coming into focus. Unlike America, which seems bent on destroying the middle class, the NFL, which prefers parity, has a solid block of middle class teams. In the

Roster Massage

Six games into the season and nine teams are spinning their wheels at 3-3. That’s good enough for first place in the NFC East now and maybe even all season long. Two teams are a perfect 6-0, Denver and Kansas

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

Football Is Back

As the 2013 NFL Offseason stinks quietly into the murky depths of history, it’s time to dust off the pom-poms and give it the old sis, boom, bah. Another exciting season of 49er football is about to begin. This year’s

Domino Cliff

The Tampa Bay Bucs are the early favorites for the 2012 Dream Team award, signing high profile FAs Carl Nicks, Vincent Jackson, and Eric Wright. As our astute readers know, this award is given in the offseason and reaped in

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
