Eras Come, Eras Go

The retirement of Joe Staley closed the books on all the players drafted from the Mike Nolan/Scot McCloughan era. In fact, only two players from those years are still on NFL rosters – Alex Smith and Frank Gore. If Michael Crabtree finds a team sometime this

It Can’t Happen Here

Lots of bodies flying off the shelves last week. The 49ers didn’t acquire any of them, and they lost Emmanuel Sanders and traded Deforest Buckner for the 13th pick in this Draft. Weaker on offense and defense. For now. Not much to fault

49ers 37, Packers 20

The 49ers made it look easy Sunday night, pounding their way to a 27-0 halftime lead and cruising to the finish line. There wasn’t a moment of real anxiety the entire game. The most laughable and yet telling stat of

Let’s Go Get A Ring

Okay, here we are again. Back in the playoffs, number one seed, and as good a chance as any team to advance to the Super Bowl. Not exactly what any of us envisioned at the start of the season, but

49ers 26, Seahawks 21

Sorry for the tardy game wrap up, guys. I was out of town for the weekend and didn’t get back until late Monday. The delay did give me a chance to spend quite a bit of time gloating shamelessly. I

Falcons 29, 49ers 22

The 49ers backed into the playoffs Sunday, when the Rams got clobbered by Dallas. That they lost to the Falcons was disappointing, but in the end makes little difference in the standings. They still need to win the next two

49ers 48, Saints 46

Mark Bavaro, Marshawn Lynch, Roger Craig.  George Kittle bulled his way into NFL Beast Mode lore Sunday afternoon in New Orleans with a monster 39 yard catch and rumble with 39 seconds left in the game to pull the 49er butts out

Ravens 20, 49ers 17

A great game between two great teams. The Ravens had the ball last and made one more play than the Niners, kicking the game winning field goal as time expired. The 49er defense showed why they’re the best in the

49ers 37, Packers 8

Goodness. That was an unexpected butt kicking. I guess all those pundits who questioned the 49er defense because it hadn’t faced elite QBs are going to need  something new to find wrong with them. The first leg of the unholy

The Gauntlet

After three straight games against squirty QBs, the 49er front seven is probably relieved to face a normal pocket passer – even if it is the so-called top QB in the game. Aaron Rodgers can run a bit, but it isn’t

Seahawks 27, 49ers 24

Off the top: Shit. The 49ers, perhaps rashly, tried to beat Seattle with their B team Monday night, but came up a tad short when the B team kicker missed the game winner in OT. Playing without their top two

49ers 28, Cardinals 25

Effing Arizona. It doesn’t matter if the 49ers are good and the Cardinals are bad, or vice versa, or both one or both the other, it’s always been tough to win down there. Some real heartbreakers over the years. The

49ers 41, Bengals 17

Juggernaut! 572 yards. 5 TDs. 27-14 edge in first downs. 259 yards rushing. The 49ers torched the Bengals on Sunday afternoon in Cincinnati. They stuffed the Bengals running game (19 attempts for 25 yds), sacked Andy Dalton four times, and dominated

2019 NFL Draft

It’s finally time for the 2019 NFL Draft. Three more days and John Lynch will be on the clock with the number two pick. Lynch had the number two pick two years ago and whiffed it. Solomon Thomas has been no better

Buzzkill Edition

We’re a week and a half into the offseason, and no 49er player has yet been arrested. Super Bowl here we come! There seems to be a ground swell of optimism forming for the 2019 season, unlike any season in,

Rams 48, 49ers 32

Drama got no favors from the 49ers this year. It took three games to boot it from the season (Jimmy Garoppolo tears ACL), but only two possessions (fumble, interception) to erase it from the final game. Along the way, George Kittle

49ers 20, Broncos 14

Every dog has its day and Sunday the 49ers had their second WTF Dog Day of the year. The first was against the Raiders and this was against the Broncos. And both of them  were engineered by Nick Mullens, who has

Buccaneers 27, 49ers 9

The 49ers responded to HC Kyle Shanahan‘s BYE week exhortations and threats by laying a turd Sunday in Tampa Bay. There were some bright spots littered within the fecal display. Rookie WR Dante Pettis got some playing time and caught 4 passes

It’s Crowded at the Bottom

As the 2018 season enters the home stretch, many of you have already cast your thoughts forward to the 2019 season. And some of you have evidently dozed off and lost all interest. But the Outsider is duty bound to stay the course

Giants 27, 49ers 23

That was a pretty entertaining game between two evenly matched teams, which is not what you want to say when the team you’re matched up evenly with came into the game with the worst record in the NFC and exited

Respect, Just a Little Bit

Gloomy week in 49erville. HC Kyle Shanahan must be feeling a little snake bit these days. Every time he brings in a player to help the team, that player ends up on IR. If this keeps up, players are going

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
