49ers 31, Buccaneers 17

They came, they saw, they conquered. With a grain of salt on the “conquer.” Survived might be closer. Grumpy did a nice post-game write-up Sunday night, so we’ll let him carry the ball here: The defense looked very good at

Let’s See What We Got

The 2019 NFL season is at last upon us. The 49ers did a good (or lucky) job of negotiating the roster cut down weekend, not losing anybody they wanted. Of course, it helped that nobody else wanted any of the

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.

49ers 24, Broncos 15

Well, that didn’t  inspire a lot of optimism for 49er fans. Jimmy Garoppolo’s five game tour de force at the end of the 2017 season looks like a distant memory now. His performance against Denver Monday night was flat out

The Expendables Game

The 49ers kick off their exhibition season this Saturday night against the Cowboys, who, I might mention, have not been to a Super Bowl in 24 years. Not one Title Game, either. Loooooooooozzzzers!!! So, just when you think the world

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

Take the Points

In 2017, the 49ers defense ranked 22nd against the pass, 22nd against the run, but 24th in points allowed.  The offense was 12th in yards, 9th in passing yards, 21st in rushing yards, but only 20th in points. In 2018,

ACLs R Us

The 49ers will be holding their month long offseason practices in a week or so. Matt Maiocco will provide spotty coverage that portrays everything in a positive light. Grant Cohn will provide the same coverage, portraying everything in a negative

Rim Shot

So much foreplay, so little roar. As expected, the 49ers used the second pick in the 2019 Draft to select pass rusher Nick Bosa. On Day Two, they picked a small, quick WR (Deebo Samuel) and a big, tall WR (Jalen

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

Playoff Blues

It’s been a month since the 2018 regular season ended. During that time, the Seahawks went to the playoffs and the Rams went to the Super Bowl. And the 49ers assumed their customary position on the spectator couch. They finished

Buzzkill Edition

We’re a week and a half into the offseason, and no 49er player has yet been arrested. Super Bowl here we come! There seems to be a ground swell of optimism forming for the 2019 season, unlike any season in,

Rams 48, 49ers 32

Drama got no favors from the 49ers this year. It took three games to boot it from the season (Jimmy Garoppolo tears ACL), but only two possessions (fumble, interception) to erase it from the final game. Along the way, George Kittle

Bears 14, 49ers 9

The Chicago Bears brought some old-fashioned smash-mouth football to Santa Clara Sunday afternoon. They shut down the 49ers running game, then shut down their passing  game, then shut them out in the second half, and finally sent 25% of the

49ers 26, Seahawks 23

Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit! After ten straight thumpings, the 49ers finally rose up and smote down the Seattle effing Seahawks. I’m still pinching myself, Shirley. Sunday’s victory was the biggest win of the Kyle Shanahan era

49ers 20, Broncos 14

Every dog has its day and Sunday the 49ers had their second WTF Dog Day of the year. The first was against the Raiders and this was against the Broncos. And both of them  were engineered by Nick Mullens, who has

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

Giants 27, 49ers 23

That was a pretty entertaining game between two evenly matched teams, which is not what you want to say when the team you’re matched up evenly with came into the game with the worst record in the NFC and exited

Cardinals 18, 49ers 15

I confess I missed some of the “action” in Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. I kept getting distracted by some paint drying on a nearby wall. Apparently, Bradley Pinion was winning a spirited punting duel against former 49er Andy Lee, with 7

Worst a Shire Marathon

The Battle of the Bottom Feeders begins Sunday! Mark your calendars! Don’t miss one minute of excruciating awfulness! Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals has the added benefit of being a battle for last place in the NFC West. Currently,

Carrot and Stick

The Rams and 49ers have not been relevant in the same season since about 2002. But they’ve certainly both been irrelevant in quite a few of those years. We’ve got to get these two synced up if there’s ever going

Chargers 29, 49ers 27

Sunday’s 49ers looked a lot like last year’s 49ers. Gritty, competitive, never-say-die, back-and-forth nail-biter but short end of the stick.  Just enough positive play to stay in the game and just enough mistakes to lose. CJ Beathard filled in admirably
