Dumping Ground

It was a nation wide dump on Colin Kaepernick week. It’s gotten so bad, even your faithful steely-eyed scribbler has begun to feel sorry for the poor kid. If he stinks it up again in New York next Sunday night,

Can Anybody Play This Game?

June is here, which means three more months until the grand opening of The Return to Mediocrity Era. Featuring an ever evolving cast of entirely forgettable coaches and players. Hip hip kerplunk! Today, we’ll look at the 2012 Draft class,

49ers 21, Chargers 7

The spectacular 49er offense sputtered and clanked its way to a blowout 21-7 victory Sunday afternoon. After the starters got off the field, that is. Those bums played five and a half minutes into the second quarter and produced three

Let the Big Dogs Eat

Through two exhibition games, the 49er scrubeenies have definitely gotten a lot of work. Most of it, in fact. The good news is the coaches have copious reams of tape for their cut-down day evaluations. The bad news is the

Changing of the Guard

By all accounts, Aldon Smith is having a superman TC so far. That’s the good news. The bad news is multiple reports are predicting a six to eight game suspension for the 2014 season. The silver lining news is that

Ravens 23, 49ers 3

On second thought, bring back the offseason! The 49ers suffered their ugliest loss since the first game of the Harbaugh Era, back in 2011 against the Saints. That game was 24-3 and this one was 23-3. Jim Harbaugh is now

Little Big Men

It only took three practices to answer the question about what to do with the crowded situation at running back. The answer was “Never mind.” First Kendall Hunter went out for the year with an ACL tear, then LaMichael James

The Church of Football Is Open

The players are back, the pads go on tomorrow, and in less than two weeks we’ll be watching a real fake football game. The final score doesn’t matter in these fake games, so they serve mainly as a warning to

Hick Cups

We’re in the midst of a sporting drought. The Red Sox flicked aside the Cardinals in last fall’s World Series, the Seahawks blew out the Broncos, the Spurs humbled the Heat, the Kings wiped out the Rangers, and the U.S.

The Big Three

Some 49er fans (and a few beat writers) are skeptical that the team will open up the offense this coming season, spreading it out and running 3-wide formations abundantly. After all, Trent Baalke just drafted a couple more big, bruising

49ers 23, Rams 13

In like a lion, out like a lamb. And so it came to pass, as the San Francisco 49ers sent the red hot St. Louis Rams bleating and whimpering into the sunset, 23-13. The 49er defense had yet another outstanding

The Fallen Idols Bowl

Now that fans have expressed their outrage over losing a game nobody expected us to win in the first place, it’s time to move along to the next opponent. One that the 49ers specialize in beating — a losing team.

Reasonable Doubt

Trent Baalke drafted well in 2010 and 2011, getting immediate contributions from players in both drafts, even Pro Bowl performances from four of them. But 2012 was a different story. That draft came within a LaMichael James of being a

Take It On Faith

This year’s 49er draft class is kind of boring. Nothing is expected from first round pick AJ Jenkins — this year. Fourth rounder, Joe Looney, is on the PUP list recovering from a foot injury. Fifth rounder, Darius Fleming, is

OTAs Week IV of IV

The last of the 49ers’ offseason three day practices starts Tuesday. It’s called a minicamp, not an Organized Team Activity, and attendance is mandatory. Failure to show up results in fines totally up to $60,000. This will give us a

Feeding the Beast

In the past three drafts, Trent Baalke has grabbed six offensive linemen, and brought in another in FA. That’s a focused commitment to the old adage that the game is won and lost in the trenches. Only two guys are

Restocked, Reloaded, & Ready

The three day mini-vacation from the All About Alex show has come and gone. The 49ers added depth and competition with their five Day 3 draft picks and loaded up for next year’s draft, too. How Belichickian. But for this
