Colts 26, 49ers 23

For the fourth straight week, the 49ers lost a game by three points or less — and in the final moments of play. 12-9, 41-39, 18-15, and now 26-23. They’ve become the Steve DeBergs of the NFL, with Brian Hoyer

The Great Divide

It’s been a long time since the blogosphere was this polarized. Not since the pre-Harbaugh days of Alex Smith. Heading into the 2015 season, bloggers either think the franchise is just fine, or they think it’s become a laughingstock. There’s

Can Anybody Play This Game?

June is here, which means three more months until the grand opening of The Return to Mediocrity Era. Featuring an ever evolving cast of entirely forgettable coaches and players. Hip hip kerplunk! Today, we’ll look at the 2012 Draft class,

Baalke’s Decade

With the departures of Patrick Willis, Ray McDonald, Michael Crabtree, and Frank Gore, the Mike Nolan/Scot McCloughan draft era is just about wrapped up. There are only two guys left: Joe Staley and Vernon Davis. And only one FA signing

The Exodus

The retirement of Patrick Willis on Monday was a big shock to 49er fans, but everything else this week has played out like expected. Anyone who could leave town, did. The team was unable to re-sign any of their free

March of Many Dimes

The 2015 Free Agent market opens for business on Tuesday at 1:00pm PST, as well as the new NFL year. Bear in mind, Seattle still lost the Super Bowl to end the 2014 season and the jeering period has not

Hit The Road, Jack

With one week left before the start of Free Agency, the 49ers have yet to re-sign any of their soon to be unrestricted players. All of these fellows are more likely to get better offers from other teams than what

Baalkan Island

For the next two months, it will be GM Trent Baalke‘s turn to show us what he can do. Free agency begins in two weeks, followed by the draft in late April. Everyone seems to be clamoring for a fast

Combine Combo

The NFL Combine is underway in Indianapolis. In other news, … Head coaches from all 32 teams will be in attendance, and 31 of them will be urging each other to trample the 49ers this year. After all, if the

Farewell Parties

Just over three weeks until the start of Free Agency. Hopefully, that will give the 49ers’ FO enough time to finish assembling an entire coaching staff, or at least parading them out there in a formal introduction. But, maybe Jim

As the QB Turns

The Super Bowl next Sunday will be a win-lose proposition for 49er fans. One of these despised franchises will have to lose the game, but one of them will have to win it, too. We’ll either see Bill Belichick and

Scraping the Barrel

Jed York took a weekend break from his whirlwind tour of beaming like a dunce while trying to sell Jim Tomsula to a highly skeptical world. Too bad. The laughter was just starting to make me forget how screwed the

Seahawks 17, 49ers 7

When you go into a game with third string CBs, backup ILBs, a third string NT, a third string C, a backup RT, two guards wondering where they’ll play next year, and a QB who panics as soon as he

Seahawks 19, 49ers 3

Turn out the lights, the party’s over. The Seahawks may or may not be as good as last year’s club, but there’s no question at all that the 49ers aren’t what they used to be. And the fall off has

49ers 17, Washington 13

The 49ers pulled another game out of their rear ends Sunday afternoon, stunning the disinterested Santa Clara minglers by scoring their first fourth quarter TD of the year! and oozing out a late victory. After falling behind 13-10, old guy

49ers 16, Giants 10

It was fun watching other teams lose Sunday. The Seahawks got beat by the Chiefs, the Eagles creamed by the Packers, and the Rams wiped out Denver. It was not much fun watching the 49ers win. In fact, somewhere late

49ers 27, Saints 24

A funny thing happened while packing my offseason bags for the long trip to Miseryville, Siberia. That goofy little ball actually bounced out of Drew Brees’ hand and wobbled around until 49ers’ all-Rocky rookie ILB Chris Borland appropriately scooped it

Bourbon Street Blues

What a depressing week. Losing to the Rams, at home, is always depressing, but this time it was also embarrassing. The loss to a team that had no business even being in the game set off tremors to the franchise.

Once More, With Gusto

Aldon Smith did not return early from his nine game suspension this week, as many surmised he would. But, who cares? We don’t need him this week. After all, we’re playing the Rams! Again! Next week, however, either Aldon is

49ers 31, Rams 17

For the third straight game, the 49ers dug themselves into a 14 point hole, then methodically clawed their way out and won. This time, they were down 14-0 after the first quarter and looked to be heading into the half

49ers 26, Eagles 21

A strange thing happened on the way to the 49ers’ third straight debilitating defeat. The defense remembered how to play all four quarters and the offense managed to dig out of a 21-10 hole and stumblebum its way to a
