49ers 31, Rams 17

For the third straight game, the 49ers dug themselves into a 14 point hole, then methodically clawed their way out and won. This time, they were down 14-0 after the first quarter and looked to be heading into the half

Lowered Expectations

Bouquets have been pouring into 49er HQ this week, with encouraging sentiments such as “GET AN OFFENSE, YOU STINKING BUMS!” OC Greg Roman seems to be getting the most bouquets, followed closely by QB Colin Kaepernick and the group politely

Sensible Shoes

The candidates to fill the shoes at nose tackle and free safety — Ian Williams and Eric Reid — both played well in the first exhibition game. The sky, which had been threatening to fall all down upon our 49er

Scheme Scream

The San Francisco 49ers squeezed by the Miami Dolphins Sunday afternoon, winning 27-13. It was not an impressive victory, but it did virtually guarantee that the team will make the 2012 playoffs. How far they advance in those playoffs is

Easy Peasey

Friday’s opening exhibition game was quite an improvement over last year’s opening debacle in New Orleans. I wish it meant something more significant than polite applause. Still, it was football and we now get to see it every week till

Back To School Week

Theeeeey’re back! Most of them, anyway. Some. Okay, just the rookies and a few vets. But it’s once again “What have you done for me lately?” time. Last season? Old news. The team’s veterans won’t be reporting until Thursday, with

Mountains & Mole Hills

Mike Singletary was in the news last week, both directly and indirectly. The indirect link to Mike occurred via the Tampa Bay Bucs and their comical search last week to find OCs and DCs for their new coach’s staff. This

The Future, The Past, The Guillotine

The 2012 Offseason is now open for business and the wonderful players on the 2011 49er team are no longer Our Boys, but our chess pawns. Sorry, guys. It’s a cruel business. Unless you’re a star, which we wish you

Some Spicy Meatballs

Jim Harbaugh told the fans attending the Pasta Bowl fundraiser Tuesday night that his team will be pushing a tempo that will “eventually overwhelm our opponents.” This comment is similar in purpose to Mike Singletary’s “impose our will” battle cry,

Setting the Bar

Training Camp opens in two and a half weeks, so it’s time to lace up our cleats and get down to the business of explaining to Jim Harbaugh just what he needs to do this year to please us. With

They Call Me Al

The second edition of Camp Alex begins today, featuring Coach Alex instructing Himself Alex and the Supporting Cast Alex as to the fundamentals of Jim “I ♥ Alex” Harbaugh’s playbook. Alextrifying moments ahead this week, 49er fans. There have been

Personna Non Grata

Jim Harbaugh inherited a team with only one quarterback signed for the 2011 season — David Carr. Harbaugh had no use for Carr and has barely even mentioned him. And no one has faulted his judgment on this non-stated thumbs

The Thirteenth Man

When the 2010 season began, the first five 49er games of the season were widely viewed as two easy wins (KC and Seattle), two sure losses (Saints and Atlanta), and one toss-up (Eagles). As it turned out, all five of

Other Side of the Coin

The 49ers offense has been the bane of the team since 2005. The defense wasn’t very good for three of those years, but has been relatively decent the past three years. Most of the blame for the desultory offense has

The Exorcist

Rams quarterback Sam Bradford has been publicly wringing his hands about having to learn a new playbook in his second season. Ha ha. Whiner. Try learning a new one every year for five straight years, Sam, then get back to

Analyze This

Two years ago at this time, Mike Singletary had just fired Mike Martz and was embarked on a highly visible search for the guy who would become his Offensive Coordinator. It was gripping drama. One by one, candidates were interviewed

Chasing the Hartebeest

The Bay Area sports Twitter Tweeters had a feeding frenzy Tuesday chasing every leak and rumor morsel regarding the 49ers, their GM search, and Jim Harbaugh. In the end, as predicted a week ago, Trent Baalke was simply promoted to

Buyer’s Remorse

One more grisly week until the bye week, the only week on the schedule the 49ers are guaranteed not to lose a ball game. Does anyone even want to talk about this team any more? Shall I just close the

Niners Win Suck Bowl

When it comes to sucking, the Raiders are still the champs. For three quarters Sunday, the 49ers gave it their best egg layers effort, but the Raiders hung in there and out laid them down the stretch, falling behind and

Niners Stink, But Raiders Suck

Sunday’s opponent is the Oakland Raiders. The Bay Area Suck team. Other franchises in this GPS vicinity are often bad, even lousy, sometimes terrible. But only the Raiders suck. It’s not that their team sucks, so much as it is

2010 49ers: FAIL!

Now that we’ve dispensed with the football part of the 49er 2010 NFL season, fans can begin to focus once again on what has become the staple of the San Francisco 49ers in the twenty-first century: booing. Another year, another

Is There a “W” in the House?

It’s tough being a 49er fan these days. The team is being ridiculed from sea to shining sea. Mike Singletary is taking a severe beating in both the local and national blogospheres. All my favorite reading holes are poisoned with
