Eras Come, Eras Go

The retirement of Joe Staley closed the books on all the players drafted from the Mike Nolan/Scot McCloughan era. In fact, only two players from those years are still on NFL rosters – Alex Smith and Frank Gore. If Michael Crabtree finds a team sometime this

49ers 37, Packers 20

The 49ers made it look easy Sunday night, pounding their way to a 27-0 halftime lead and cruising to the finish line. There wasn’t a moment of real anxiety the entire game. The most laughable and yet telling stat of

Upwardly Mobile

This is the earliest BYE week the 49ers have ever had. Kind of early for a nap, IMHO. I normally push myself through a pot of coffee and five hours before taking my first nap of the day. The team

49ers 27, Chiefs 17

Jimmy Garoppolo quieted the restless 49er masses Saturday night in Kansas City, turning in a solid performance while playing the entire first half. He was a bit ragged on the first drive, then settled down and threw some beautiful passes.

Junky Alert

The third season  of the Kyle Shanahan Show will begin airing next week. As usual, the first four episodes will be meaningless drivel whose only purpose will be to familiarize us fans with the new cast of characters who will be

The Raytown Kid

The 49ers wrapped up their minicamp last week and the offseason practices have come to an end. A few players were too dinged up, for one reason or another, to join in the final festivities: RT Mike McGlinchey WR Deebo

Return of the Jed

It was only a matter of time. For the past two years, Jed York has been quiet, almost invisible. Leaving Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch alone to do their jobs. Over the weekend, however, word leaked out of 49er HQ that York had

Bring Me Your Lame …

The first week of Free Agency has come and gone. A lot of players changed teams and a lot of money changed hands. With the money being tossed at players these days, the “don’t let your kids play football” arguments are

Bring Your Gum Wads

The Chicago Bears come to town this weekend, fresh from clinching the NFC North division. They would be more tempted to mail this game in if not for the falling fortunes of the Rams which have suddenly made the last

Trending Up Meets Trending Down

The Broncos were left for dead last month. Their record was 3-6. Now it’s 6-6, after dispatching the Chargers and Steelers, and they might just slip into the playoffs if they keep on winning. Imagine their delight to find the

49ers 30, Lions 27

As expected, the 49ers rebounded from their loss in Minnesota to easily barely handle the toothless scrappy Detroit Lions. After controlling the game for three quarters, the Niners held a 17 point lead with 11 minutes to go in the

Coming Attractions

Less than three weeks until the 49ers’ Training Camp opens and we start separating the men from the boys. One of my favorite times of the year. All the OTA standouts and over-hyped draft picks get their first taste of

Cardinals 20, 49ers 10

The Cardinals and 49ers met for the second time this season and the results were pretty much the same. A deadly boring contest which Arizona won. 49er fans were apparently expecting this sort of performance, as the stadium was only

Eagles 33, 49ers 10

What can I say? Another fun day in 49erville, as the boys ran their record to a clean 0-8, doggedly keeping pace with the Cleveland Browns in the empty barrel division. The 49ers are getting better and better at getting

Washington 26, 49ers 24

Another week, another last second loss. The 49ers have developed an uncanny ability to almost, but not quite, win. Perhaps they will soon develop an uncanny ability to almost, but not quite, lose. It might have to wait a couple

Cardinals 23, 49ers 20

Phew! That was close. The 49ers almost blew their shot at history on Sunday afternoon, but in the final two minutes of the game, they rallied to let Carson Palmer lead the Cardinals on a 12 play, 62 yard drive

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

Panthers 46, 49ers 27

The 49ers dusted off the old rope-a-dope strategy Sunday versus Carolina by lulling the Panthers to sleep with an endless stream of three and out punts, counting on the Panthers to get careless with the ball. It worked! They got

Long Odds

Your faithful scribe has been offline for a couple of weeks. In my absence, the 49ers have apparently been flying under the radar also, content to remain inconspicuous while the Warriors, Sharks, and Giants capture the attention of the Bay

Standing Pat

Two weeks into the FA period, it looks like GM Trent Baalke has concluded that last year’s 5-11 record wasn’t the least bit his fault. No, the roster’s fine. The record was all the fault of Jim Tomsula and Colin

Depleted Roster

It’s NFL Combine week, which means that February is down to its last useless week with a schedule of fittingly useless events that showcase certain peculiar athletic skills of a huge pile of college boys. All of this is a

Halftime Highlights

Halfway through the season, the Niners have become the musical chairs franchise. QBs in, QBs out. RBs in, RBs out. CBs in, CBs out. TEs in, TEs out. RG and RT in and out and in and out. Apparently, our
