Mid Season Mumble

We’re only half way through the 2013 season, but the AFC playoff teams are already mostly decided. New England, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Kansas City, and Denver are practically shoo-ins. That leaves ONE wild card spot up for grabs. Wake me in

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

Ambulance Ambiance

The unmistakable sounds of NFL football are pealing in the air throughout America now: “MEDIC! We have a man down here!” Achilles, Triceps, ACLs, MCLs — these are the dreaded words that signal a major, year-ending injury. The avant garde

Tough Guys Don’t Dance

Anquan Boldin has been impressive in the OTA practices. A couple of the beat guys even said he looked like a true number one receiver. In seven years with the Cardinals and three with the Ravens, however, he was never

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

Lip O Suck Shun

Easter has come and gone, and those of you who attempt to give devout behavior at least a smidgeon of your attention can now ease back into your wicked and sinful ways. Those of you who are devoutless devotees can

Bargain Hunting

The 2013 offseason has been a bit of a yawner so far. Not that we expected much more. When you have fourteen draft picks, it’s pretty obvious where the mustard will be squoozed this year. Getting Anquan Boldin for virtually

Sixteen Reasons

The Twitter news feed has been bonkering hot this week, for those of you who are Twitterholics. Leave the computer to take a leak and when you get back there’s a message: “29 new Tweets.” Goodness! The Jets make the

Something Old, Something Flew

The first days of Free Agency were typically entertaining, and as expected, the 49ers sat out the league wide scrum. Also as expected, Dashon Goldson went trolling for dollars and wound up on the opposite coast in Tampa Bay. Delanie

Tampering Week

The blossoms are on the trees these days, coloring up the bleak winter view, and attracting the sleek black crows to the nests of robins where they can eagerly gobble up the little robinettes, ending their poor little lives before

A Few Good Fat Guys

The 2013 Draft doesn’t have much buzz to it this year. Not only are there no superstar QBs in the draft, the top player might be an offensive guard! You can’t get much unsexier than that unless you attended a

Wake Me When The Game Begins

The game cannot come soon enough. 100 mouths, 2,000 microphones, and still 5,000 game analyses to go before the kickoff. I put my head in the sand yesterday, but it didn’t work. There were two ostriches down there talking about

Middle Big Man

The 49ers have finally completed their climb to the top of the NFL rankings. Numero Uno, baby. What does this mean? Pretty much nothing, baby. Unless you’re a 49er fan commenting on an Oakland Raiders’ blog site. Yeah, baby. Lots

OTAs Week IV of IV

The last of the 49ers’ offseason three day practices starts Tuesday. It’s called a minicamp, not an Organized Team Activity, and attendance is mandatory. Failure to show up results in fines totally up to $60,000. This will give us a

Core de Corps

Patience holds little value in the blog world, but it is a major contributor to assembling a good team. This past year, we saw Tarell Brown emerge as a solid CB, Dashon Goldson go to the Pro Bowl, Adam Snyder

Best in the West

Eight years of Dweeb football came to a resounding end Sunday at Candlestick. The 49ers completely stomped the Rams in a game that had zero sweaty moments. Not once, even for a second, was this game in doubt. NFC West

Six and One and Having Fun

The San Francisco 49ers ran their winning streak to five Sunday with a fairly pedestrian 20-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns. The game was essentially over by half time, which is how a lot of 49er games have been the

Kool-Aid Sales Soar

The Bye Week is normally a drizzly, anguished time where we either say good-Bye to another lost cause 49er season or drastically reduce our expectations for what the team can hope to accomplish with the remaining schedule. This latter occurrence
