Third exhibition game coming up Saturday against the Broncos, and probably the only real glimpse we’ll get at what kind of team we have before the action begins for real. Not that we don’t already know what kind of team

Draft Bier

Draft frenzy is in full swing these days. The Draft itself is quite enjoyable, but the pre-draft hoopla can be a bit taxing. If this sort of entertainment is not one’s cup of tea, it’s like living in a one

Combine Combo

The NFL Combine is underway in Indianapolis. In other news, … Head coaches from all 32 teams will be in attendance, and 31 of them will be urging each other to trample the 49ers this year. After all, if the

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

Everybody Lies

It’s Happy Talk time in the NFL. Every team is getting better, every change is for the best, every player is expecting to have a big year. Bah. Humbug. By the end of the year, a couple of teams will

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 34, Falcons 24

The 49ers closed down Candlestick in epic fashion Monday night, parlaying the worst defensive outing of the year into a nail-biting, season on the brink, game ending moment, and then watching Navorro Bowman save the day with a legendary 89

49ers 33, Buccaneers 14

The San Francisco 49ers won their tenth game of the season Sunday in Tampa, giving them three straight years of 10+ wins for the first time since the Steve Young era in the late ’90’s. One more victory or an

Caveman vs the Archer

Here we are again. Traveling to New Orleans for what seems like our annual game against the Saints. As usual, the 49ers will not be favored to win. They won last year’s game handily, in the game that cemented Colin

49ers 34, Texans 3

Houston quarterback Matt Schaub led the 49ers to a 34-3 trouncing of his very own self Sunday night, throwing three interceptions, one of which was a record setting fourth straight game with a pick six. CB Tramaine Brock was the

Colts 27, 49ers 7

The 49ers proved Sunday that last week’s debacle in Seattle was not a fluke. In fact, despite playing in their own friendly park, it’s possible the offense was even worse than it was in the hostile elements up north a

Mighty Men III Begins

Rookies and selected veterans practiced in full pads Monday and Tuesday. There were no catastrophic injuries reported in this first round of torso colliding. Bravo, lads! Only six more months of pounding to go. Proving they are in mid-season form

Football Is Back

As the 2013 NFL Offseason stinks quietly into the murky depths of history, it’s time to dust off the pom-poms and give it the old sis, boom, bah. Another exciting season of 49er football is about to begin. This year’s

Fab Rehab Team

The second of three OTAs begins Tuesday and hopefully we will not hear anything newsworthy from this three day practice session. If there’s real news, it’s going to be bad. Otherwise, everyone is looking great and ready to have a

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

Pancaked!

Ouch. The 49ers put a serious man hurt on the New York Jets Sunday, steamrolling over them 34-0. It looked like a throwback game to the 1930’s as nine different runners combined for 245 in your face yards on 44

I Shoes

In a strangely candid moment, Greg Roman told the media Tuesday that Anthony Dixon would make the team. That means Rock Cartwright most likely won’t. It makes sense, I suppose, if you get your fingers in there for some careful

Halfway House

The 49ers play Denver next Sunday. Hmmmm. What will the storyline be? Aldon Smith vs Von Miller? The return of Perrish Cox? Hmmm…. Traditionally, the third exhibition game is viewed as the most meaningful of the meaningless games. The starters

Thunder and Lightning

The 49ers did not unveil their super terrific, tricky and prolific passing game against the Vikings last week, and we’re not likely to see it during the remaining three exhibition games. For the past few years, the Niners have been

We’re Almost There

Three days till the 49ers take the field. About the amount of time it takes to detox, for you .25 BAC fellows. You .45 BACers are probably on your way to the morgue and are no longer interested in the

Wanted: A Few Scary Guys

11-85 is not yet as famous in the Bay Area as 16-80 or 8-80, but a few more years of heroics and a couple of SBs could change that. Alex Smith to Vernon Davis tied an NFL record for TDs
