Dolphins 43, 49ers 17

So, about next year … The only thing that could save this year is if COVID went crazy and they had to scrap the season. The Niners got trashed so bad it looked like the 2016 team out there on

Eagles 25, 49ers 20

The 49ers lost to  the Eagles 25-20 Sunday night, but a more accurate portrayal of the score would be 49ers 20, Eagles 8, Nick Mullens -17. And just like that, the bandwagons of the 49ers and of Mullens emptied out into

49ers 31, Jets 13

The 49ers got back on track by drubbing the hapless Jets Sunday, but they likely lost any chance at being a SB contender this year when all-world DE Nick Bosa tore his ACL and will be out for the season. The

Cardinals 24, 49ers 20

The 49ers tried to play a 21st century football game with no wide receivers. Fail. Kendrick Bourne: 2 receptions. Dante Pettis: zero. AZ secondary: smoke break. DC Robert Saleh had an entire offseason to figure out how to defend against squirt-ball QBs. Fail. Kyler

And Away We Go

The defending NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers kick off their 2020 season next Sunday afternoon at home against the division rival Arizona Cardinals. These pesky assholes gave the Niners a scare in both games last season, but clutch fourth quarter

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

Chiefs 31, 49ers 20

The 49ers’ fairy tale season came to an ignominious end Sunday night in Miami, crushed to death at the fifty yard line as Jimmy Garoppolo stood motionless, unable or unwilling to throw the ball on fourth and ten with the season

Defense, Defense, Defense!

It’s blah, blah, blah week while we wait for next Sunday’s Super Bowl game. While it’s nice that the Niners and Chiefs are doing the yapping, and not some other team from the East Coast, it’s still a lot of

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

49ers 27, Vikings 10

When last we saw the 49ers, they were surviving by an inch after a second half defensive collapse that nearly derailed their season. They had also just finished five  consecutive nail-biter games, going 3-2. Saturday, however, they mercifully quit pissing around

Let’s Go Get A Ring

Okay, here we are again. Back in the playoffs, number one seed, and as good a chance as any team to advance to the Super Bowl. Not exactly what any of us envisioned at the start of the season, but

49ers 26, Seahawks 21

Sorry for the tardy game wrap up, guys. I was out of town for the weekend and didn’t get back until late Monday. The delay did give me a chance to spend quite a bit of time gloating shamelessly. I

49ers 34, Rams 31

The 49ers showed a championship  heart in their victory over the Rams on Saturday night, but not a championship talent level. They were outplayed for most of the game, and it took a brilliant defensive play by Fred Warner to steal

Win and In

At one point early in the season, Jimmy Garoppolo had thrown for 7 TDs and 5 interceptions. Not heart warming numbers. Since then, he’s gone 19 and 6. Numbers almost exactly recorded by the QB in New England who’s had 20

49ers 48, Saints 46

Mark Bavaro, Marshawn Lynch, Roger Craig.  George Kittle bulled his way into NFL Beast Mode lore Sunday afternoon in New Orleans with a monster 39 yard catch and rumble with 39 seconds left in the game to pull the 49er butts out

49ers 37, Packers 8

Goodness. That was an unexpected butt kicking. I guess all those pundits who questioned the 49er defense because it hadn’t faced elite QBs are going to need  something new to find wrong with them. The first leg of the unholy

49ers 36, Cardinals 26

The 49ers squeezed out a win Sunday afternoon against the Cardinals, and guaranteed their first winning season since 2013. Early in the game, however, it looked more like they would be the first team in NFL history to win its

Seahawks 27, 49ers 24

Off the top: Shit. The 49ers, perhaps rashly, tried to beat Seattle with their B team Monday night, but came up a tad short when the B team kicker missed the game winner in OT. Playing without their top two

49ers 28, Cardinals 25

Effing Arizona. It doesn’t matter if the 49ers are good and the Cardinals are bad, or vice versa, or both one or both the other, it’s always been tough to win down there. Some real heartbreakers over the years. The

49ers 20, Rams 7

It appears to be official: the 49ers are BACK. The only undefeated team in the NFC and atop the standings in the NFC West. For the second week in a row, they dominated the TOP, this time by 39 to

49ers 31, Browns 3

Wow. That was quite a butt kicking. The 49ers dominated the Browns in every way possible. Scoreboard. TOP. INTs. Sacks. Turnovers. Rushing. Passing. Have I left anything out? Oh, the Browns had three more penalties than the Niners. Their only

Upstart Bragging Rights

The Browns and 49ers haven’t been of much interest for a good while to NFL followers (except as sarcastic or comedic examples of poorly run franchises). But this year, both teams are the darlings of the expert prognosticators that glut
