Meet Me In St. Louis

Last year, the St. Louis Rams recorded 53 sacks. This year, after four games, they have ONE! Uno potahto, baby! DE Robert Quinn had 19 sacks last year. This year, ZERO! It must be that multi-million dollar contract upgrade he

49ers 40, Texans 13

The 49ers closed out the 2014 Exhibition season by thoroughly routing the Houston Texans, 40-13. It was the scrubs finest hour. And for many of them, their final hour, too. The first half looked pretty similar to the starting unit’s

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

Last Rehearsal For Opening Night

The 49ers appear to have sufficient depth at every position on the offense, but there are some nervous making areas on defense. The drop off from starter to backup at OLB and the safety positions is down right scary. It

Tecksus Ecksabission

The 49ers travel to Houston to play the Texans Saturday night. We all know what that means — COOTIES!!! Fortunately, Houston isn’t Dallas, so the cooties aren’t super-sized, smelly, drooling, brain dead, road kill vermin. Just small, annoying, clueless, windshield

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

Ready to Rumble

Tonight at Candlestick Park, Mike Singletary resumes his quest to become the greatest Head Coach who ever lived. Next step for Mike, convince an owner to hire him as a Head Coach. Minnesota deliberated briefly this offseason about promoting Mike

Fourteen Days

Training Camp is now two weeks from lift off and heading into it, the starting lineup appears to be set. This is good, but it also sucks. Most of the mystery of TC will be absent. The pecking order at

Not sure if I should apologize for being away from my desk for awhile or for returning to it, but esconced in my chair once more am I. The national and local football worlds are all touting the 49ers as

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

QB or Not QB

This year’s training camp and preseason games will be quite a bit different than the previous seven years have been. The 49ers are the reigning NFC West champions, not the team that might be good or might be bad. They’re

Leftover Stew

Free Agency 2012 burned up its drama in about ten days. By Friday of last week, the top headliners had all been signed. Over the next few weeks, the off Broadway guys will be trickling in hither and yon throughout

Was It Good For You, Too?

Which one is the loser? It was exciting subbing in for New York this past two weeks, but a little exhausting. Thankfully, the Jets have reclaimed the news feed throne by trading for Tim Tebow, bringing it all back home

The Harbaugh Factor

Most mock drafts have the 49ers selecting QB Blaine Gabbert with the number seven pick in tonight’s 2011 NFL Draft. Most 49er fans aren’t thrilled with this mock scenario, preferring the team goes defense with its first pick. If this

The Headless Offense

I’m still having trouble grasping why Jim Harbaugh took the job as the 49ers Head Coach. Niner fans and ownership do not believe this is a rebuilding year. He’ll be expected to compete right away for the division title, yet

Viewer Discretion Advised

Jim Harbaugh and Jed York both left the door open last week for Alex Smith to return to the club this coming year. It’s possible they did this to ensure that the 49er blog world has something to argue about
