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

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

Virtually the Same

Well, that was a pretty weird draft for the 49ers. Fairly effective overall, but decidedly lacking in fan appeal. There’s an old saying that if you aren’t getting better, you’re getting worse. In the Niner’s case, however, staying pretty much

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

Game of the Year?

You’d have to go back to the early nineties to find the last time the 49ers started a season 10-1. They did so in 1990 and squared off with the Giants, who were also 10-1. The Niners won that one

Prove It or Lose It

Hey, look! We’ve got ourselves a MUST WIN GAME! Hahaha. We haven’t had one of these in quite awhile. But, let’s face it, if the 49ers can’t beat the Seahawks here at home, they’re not likely to in Seattle. And

49ers 24, Steelers 20

You won’t win many games in the NFL when you turn the ball over five times. But the 49er defense made their five turnovers hurt less than the two Pittsburgh had. The Steelers got six points and the Niners got

49ers 41, Bengals 17

Juggernaut! 572 yards. 5 TDs. 27-14 edge in first downs. 259 yards rushing. The 49ers torched the Bengals on Sunday afternoon in Cincinnati. They stuffed the Bengals running game (19 attempts for 25 yds), sacked Andy Dalton four times, and dominated

Howdy Doodle Time

Last year at this time, the Rams were favored to win the NFC West, and they did precisely that. The 49ers were favored to provide a spirited chase, which might possibly land them a playoff berth. They did precisely not

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

49ers 31, Giants 21

Rookie HC Kyle Shanahan finally got his first win Sunday, trouncing the hapless New York Giants. Rookie QB CJ Beathard also got his first win, while enjoying the rare treat of a clean pocket and a break from getting pounded

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

Take a Number

The 49ers close out their offseason practices this week. If you gleaned any useful information from these sessions, congratulations. Your drug of choice has served you well. Joe Montana‘s recent birthday was a painful reminder that we once had recognizable,

Dolphins 31, 49ers 24

Close, but no cigar. Or close, but light ’em up! Blaine Gabbert‘s backup took a mouthful of shoulder pad from Ndamukong Suh and Kiko Alonso at the two yard line as time ran out on his desperate attempt to be

Carolina In My Mind

The 49ers travel to North Carolina this weekend to throw themselves under the Panthers’ playoff bus on Sunday. At least, that’s the general view around the league and in Las Vegas. Apparently, the blow out win over the Rams did

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

Browns 24, 49ers 10

The Blaine Gabbert Era turned a jubilant corner last week against the Bears, only to run smack into a brick wall this week in Cleveland. The two win Browns completely dominated the game, out gaining the 49ers 481-221 yards, with

Not Good Enough

We’re finally down to the last dregs of the offseason. One more garbage game to go before the San Francisco 49ers become NFL roadkill. The team sent 15 nobodies packing on Monday and will say good-bye to another 22 after

The Great Divide

It’s been a long time since the blogosphere was this polarized. Not since the pre-Harbaugh days of Alex Smith. Heading into the 2015 season, bloggers either think the franchise is just fine, or they think it’s become a laughingstock. There’s

Rebuilt Retool

49er spring practices are over and there’s six weeks left until Training Camp opens and puts an end to this disastrous 2015 offseason. Still plenty of time left for more disasters, though, so stay tuned. It will be interesting to

Hyper Kiper Time

The 2015 Schedule was released last Tuesday night. It looks like the only thing standing in the way of a perfect 0-8 start is the pesky opening game versus Minnesota. Even if the 49ers win that game — and they

Baalke’s Decade

With the departures of Patrick Willis, Ray McDonald, Michael Crabtree, and Frank Gore, the Mike Nolan/Scot McCloughan draft era is just about wrapped up. There are only two guys left: Joe Staley and Vernon Davis. And only one FA signing
