UPDATE: Nothing is happening in the NFL. When nothing finally gives way to something, this site will dutifully return to action. Until then, I’m sick of covering lawyer baloney, and am going to take a break. An actual football discussion

Knows To Nose: Pick ‘Em

The 2011 NFL Combine starts today, but in looking at the schedule of events, absolutely nothing of interest will occur until Saturday. Today, Thursday, and Friday, all that will be happening is measurements, physical exams, Wonderlic Tests, and interviews with

Enjoy the Moment

The 49ers win over the Raiders did not impress the blogosphere all that much, nor did it provoke any playoff fever epidemics. But there was no denying the immense sigh of relief that wafted up through cyberspace. I will not

The Missing Ornament

I had a dream last night that the 49ers beat the Eagles 59-0. In the dream, as the team lined up for its first offensive play of the game, one by one little light bulbs popped up over the helmets

2010 TC IV: Monterey Meh

Okay. We’re bored now. Can’t we play some real fake games yet? All this bumping and shoving around is taxing. We need some real action that they show on TV. Isaac Sopoagna gave us a hint on Wednesday when he

Lights, Camera, Action

Sigh. We made it. It’s here. The beginning of a new decade of NFL football. The Patriots and the Colts owned the last decade. Which teams will own this coming one? (Hint: The San Francisco 49ers!!!!!). I must be channeling
