Another Trip to the Woodshed

Last Sunday, Atlanta laid such a relentless whipping on the Rams that it sent LA’s HC Jeff Fisher out the door and into the unemployment line. Next Sunday, the Falcons will quite likely administer the same sort of beat down

Year of the Underdog

The 49ers are the underdog in next Monday night’s game, just like they currently are for every game they play this year. But season opening games are notoriously unpredictable and rarely an indication of how the rest of the year

Hidden Agenda

The 49ers travel to St. Louis this weekend for what might be the last time, if rumors of the Rams moving to Los Angeles prove accurate. The Rams are in second place in the NFC West at 3-3. That’s right

Meet Me In St. Louis

Last year, the St. Louis Rams recorded 53 sacks. This year, after four games, they have ONE! Uno potahto, baby! DE Robert Quinn had 19 sacks last year. This year, ZERO! It must be that multi-million dollar contract upgrade he

Let’s Do Committee

The NFL Competition Committee proposed thirteen new rule changes and seven other Bylaw proposals last Wednesday. Since, at most, there will only be a handful of these items actually adopted by the league, it’s hard to get excited or depressed

Trade Winds

Pro Football Talk has been busy the past week trying to characterize the 49er front office as a powder keg, citing sources that mostly emanate from the Browns’ FO, a group trying to spin themselves into some sort of scenario

Bye Bye Candlestick

There’s a 49er football game Monday night, but it will be somewhat overshadowed by the hoopla surrounding the final game to be played at Candlestick before the team moves to Santa Clara next year. If the Cardinals lose Sunday in

49ers 23, Rams 13

In like a lion, out like a lamb. And so it came to pass, as the San Francisco 49ers sent the red hot St. Louis Rams bleating and whimpering into the sunset, 23-13. The 49er defense had yet another outstanding

Fall From Grace

This is normally the time we disparage our upcoming opponents and scoff at any notion they might be able to beat the mighty 49ers. Two wallopings in a row kind of takes the swagger off the mighty, though. I hope

Fit to be Tied

The 49ers defense gave up 458 yards Sunday to one of the worst offenses in the league. Shameful. They deserved to lose and were lucky to get a tie. This is the fourth time in nine games that the defensive

Blame and Fortune

The election is over, the World Series is over, the Bye Week is over. Time to return to those thrilling days of yesteryear. Hi yo, 49ers, away! I can kind of see Jim Harbaugh riding around the West in a

Dream Teams

NFL teams are all holding their rookie minicamps these days (the 49ers’ begins Friday), and hope blooms recklessly in the hearts of fans everywhere. Every team had a “killer draft,” it’s players are all “vastly improved,” and it’s coaches are

All Along The Watchtower

Twelve teams have reportedly contacted Peyton Manning’s agent about getting Manning to come play QB for them. That’s over one third of the teams in the NFL that don’t think much of their current QB. And eleven of those teams

Mild, Mild West

Thanks in large part to the resurgent 49ers, the NFC West lost its distinction last year as the worst Division in the NFL. Thanks in large part to the catastrophic collapse of the Colts, the AFC South assumed that dunce

Chips & Dips

It’s a great feeling watching all these teams interviewing new HC candidates, doing the Rooney Rule dance, looking for franchise redemption, and knowing the 49ers have solved this riddle for a long, long time. Not that everything is going to

The Model B Auto

It’s safe to say that most 49er fans are relatively pleased that Mike Nolan, Scot McCloughan, and Mike Singletary are no longer in the building at 4949 Centennial Blvd. It’s also safe to say that most 49er fans think the
