Plot Lines

Less than a three weeks until Training Camp opens and we begin to sort out this mess of newbies wearing the Red and Gold. But I’m more enthused about the return of football in general than the Niners in particular.

Lame Owners’ Bowl

The Jeckyll and Hyde 49ers return home this weekend to play the Cowboys, hoping the Doctor is in and not the other guy. The howls have already begun to yank Blaine Gabbert and try one of the other bust QBs

Dickhead Owners Game

The Cowboys come to town Sunday for exhibition game number two. This should provide an excellent opportunity for Jed York to get some tips from Jerry Jones on the fine art of ego-driven self-destruction. The first string offense only played

Jed York Sucks

The long offseason begins. Seeing Russell Wilson and the Seahawks discover Sunday that they were not an invincible force was a pleasant send off to the 2014 year. There’s nothing sweeter than seeing a bunch of crass and arrogant blowhards

Easy Pickins

At first glance, the 49ers 2014 schedule looks a bit daunting. In the first seven games, they face three 2013 playoff teams (Eagles, Chiefs, Broncos), a ten win team (Cardinals), a couple of QBs who can be streaky good or

Mo, Mo Money

The NFL owners and their entourages are gathered in Orlando this week. The entourages of these gents, of course, bears no resemblence to the entourages of mega-star athletes. Mega-star bodyguards look like bouncers. Billionaire bodyguards look like Secret Service agents.

49ers 23, Cardinals 20

The Arizona Cardinals bragged their way to an 11-5 record during the week and labeled themselves the best team in the NFC, but limped off the field Sunday sporting a 10-6 tag and a ticket home for the offseason as

Luck Be A Lady

The 49ers repeated as NFC West champs Sunday by whisking aside the crumbling Arizona Cardinals 27-13. Rather than celebrate, the team adjourned to the locker room and did what fans do — anxiously watched the TV end game between Green

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

Power Shifts

The first decade of the 21st Century was dominated by three teams: the Colts, the Patriots, and the Steelers. Those three teams accounted for six of the ten SB champions. Philadelphia, Baltimore, and San Diego had good teams that always

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

Lower the Casket

The 2010 NFL season is now officially toast. The people in Green Bay and their fans in other cities and towns will try to keep it open for the next six months, but for the other 31 NFL franchises it

The Superless Bowl

When the Packers settled for a field goal and a six point lead on their final drive in yesterday’s Super Bowl, I thought they had just lost the game. There were two minutes and seven seconds left. Plenty of time
