Must Win Times

Last year, the 49ers split their first two games and then embarked on an improbable eight game winning streak. This year, the team has been unable to win so much as three games in a row. Beginning Sunday, they’ll have

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

Around the Horn

The second week of OTAs has come and gone, which is the good news. We are one week closer to the start of Training Camp. With only three changes to the starting lineup this year — Randy Moss replacing Josh

Oh, My Darling

Today’s topic is Patrick Willis. He’s great. He’s awesome. Everybody agrees. Next up, the NFC West now has the 2010 (Sam Bradford), 2011 (Kevin Kolb), and 2012 (Matt Flynn) QB debutante darlings. And nobody’s darling, Alex Smith. Looks like the

Domino Cliff

The Tampa Bay Bucs are the early favorites for the 2012 Dream Team award, signing high profile FAs Carl Nicks, Vincent Jackson, and Eric Wright. As our astute readers know, this award is given in the offseason and reaped in

Lunch Lips

Trent Baalke hit the lotto two years in a row with his third round picks — NaVorro Bowman and Chris Culliver. Neither pick drew oohs and aahs at the time. More like who’s and wha’s. Bowman stepped in for Takeo

Mild, Mild West

Thanks in large part to the resurgent 49ers, the NFC West lost its distinction last year as the worst Division in the NFL. Thanks in large part to the catastrophic collapse of the Colts, the AFC South assumed that dunce

Plug N Play QB

The fans in Seattle, Arizona, Kansas City, Minnesota, Cleveland, Baltimore, New York Jets, Miami, Dallas, Washington, and some disgruntled fringers in probably a few more NFL cities are lusting at the thought, real or far-fetched, that soon to be FA

Highway 49 Revisited

The first round of the 2011 playoffs is in the books, with all four home teams winning. There will be no wild card entrants advancing to the Super Bowl this year. Football purists everywhere are pleased. And so is everyone

Red Bird Road Kill

The newly crowned 2011 NFC West Division champion San Francisco 49ers will be jaunting down to Phoenix this weekend to wipe the two game winning streak off the faces of the Arizona Cardinals. Since having their hides peeled at Candlestick

Trading Places

20-16, 24-9, 27-6, 38-7. Those are the scores of the past four Cardinals/49ers games — all San Francisco victories. The first one anyway. The last three were more like stompings. Is there likely to be a reversal of Arizona fortunes

Division Divide

At the mid point of the 2011 NFL season, the 49ers have turned the NFC West race into a laugher. A division infamous for nail-biting, down to the wire drama among dog-poo teams abruptly has no drama whatsoever and half

Pre-Game Nerves

As we head into the last two days of the lockout, 49er fans seem most concerned about the defense. Five starters from last year’s team are currently free agents. And one starter, Nate Clements, has a salary that has ballooned

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

Last Call For Koolaide

It seems appropriate now to take a quick look at the 2010 season thus far and offer up some feeble excuses for the stumblebum start the 49ers have presented us. This will be the last time this year that any

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

Mid-Semester Grades

The 2010 49ers are making it real tough to stay positive about them. To say the least. But, we’ve only got one season per year, with a looooonnnnnnnnnggggggggg time between one of them and the next one, so WTF. Go
