Trial Balloon Float

Uncharted Waters

The Free Agency period seems to have run its course, leaving us with six weeks of mock drafts to grind through. Whizzo. There are still a few big names out there looking for work. Jay Cutler, Jamaal Charles, Adrian Paterson.

Fox Hunt

The 49ers travel to Chicago this weekend to resume their quest for a perfect 0-8 road record for 2015. They’re at 0-5 now, so the tension for perfection is building with each failed effort to succeed. Or is it each

Bears 28, 49ers 20

The 49ers embarrassed themselves Sunday night, turning an easy win into an ugly loss, and christening their brand new stadium with a layer of stink normally associated with descriptions of toilet overflow at the Oakland Raiders’ facilities. The 49ers new

The Xth Game

Ronnie Lott once said you didn’t know what kind of team you really had until the tenth game of the season. As it so happens, next Monday’s game against Chicago will be game number ten for the 49ers. I don’t

Semester Break

The 49ers zoomed into sole possesion of first place in the NFC West Sunday by lounging pool side while watching Arizona get stuffed by Minnesota. Next Monday night, the team will get to stuff Arizona themselves. Meanwhile, Seattle CB Richard

49ers Put Out the Cat

The San Francisco 49ers opened the game by forcing a Detroit 3 and out punt, then rolled down the field in four plays for a touchdown, and it looked like the game would be a rout. From that time on,

Don’t Mention It

As previously noted, the Detroit Lions will be coming to the Bay Area this weekend for a nationally televised Sunday night butt whipping. Not to be out done by this generous gesture of voluntary humiliation, Alex Smith will provide three

Gone Fishing

The much ballyhooed offseason practices are in the books. Ballyhooed? Where were the flaming Tweets? The yellow headlines? The steaming trailers? True, there was little hoo in the bally, but the mere existence of offseason practices, where the 13-3 club

Around the Horn

The second week of OTAs has come and gone, which is the good news. We are one week closer to the start of Training Camp. With only three changes to the starting lineup this year — Randy Moss replacing Josh

Weak Previews

The NFC seems noticeably stronger than the AFC this year. Only the Vikings, Bucs, and Rams look like possible punching bags in the NFC, while the AFC has a bucketful of laughers — Dolphins, Browns, Titans, Jags, Colts, and maybe

Comings and Goings

The 2012 Free Agency period roared into action Tuesday afternoon, as it usually does. What was not usual was the 49ers being among the early roarers. Last year, they waited till all the roaring had subsided before picking through the

Say It Like You Mean It

When I was growing up, passion was a religious/theological term for the final agonizing days of Jesus Christ. I didn’t know what it meant, but it didn’t seem to be something you would want happening to you unless you were

New Staff, New Era

Jim Harbaugh has been putting together a pretty impressive staff this past week. On paper, anyway. Yesterday, one of the reputed top special teams coaches in the league, Brad Seely, left his job with the Browns to sign up with

Roads Out of Town

After yesterday’s guest post by Phoenix Envy, this site returns to its usual SF 49ers focus. Now, now. No booing out there. Put down those tomatoes. It may not mean anything in the great scheme of things, but that was
