The Spin Doctor Is In

Now that the 49ers’ Front Office has bungled away the feel good atmosphere of the hugely successful 2011 season and reminded us of the ten years of ownership ineptitude which preceded it, everyone can get back to business. And thank

Final Dress Rehearsals

The upcoming week is probably the last week of competition for starting jobs and roster spots. After next Saturday’s game against the Texans, the final two weeks of practice will be focused on the opening game against Seatlle, and the

FA Brake Down

There’s been a lot of early season jitters as the blogorama shakes off the rust of the long offseason and gets its tonsils game ready. But one week into the new season, the collective nerves seem to be settling down

One Weak Wonders

The Great 2011 Free Agency Manhunt enters its seventh day this morning and a football starved world has come out of hiding to gush and moan for six solid days. The Eagles and Jets have generated the most buzz, but

Setting the Bar

Training Camp opens in two and a half weeks, so it’s time to lace up our cleats and get down to the business of explaining to Jim Harbaugh just what he needs to do this year to please us. With

They Call Me Al

The second edition of Camp Alex begins today, featuring Coach Alex instructing Himself Alex and the Supporting Cast Alex as to the fundamentals of Jim “I ♥ Alex” Harbaugh’s playbook. Alextrifying moments ahead this week, 49er fans. There have been

See The UFA, In Your Chez Buffet

As reported by ProFootballTalk Tuesday, the new CBA will allow players with four years in the league to become Unrestricted Free Agents, or UFAs for you acronym lovers. This puts Dashon Goldson, Ray McDonald, and Manny Lawson out there on

Hypothetical Hypnosis

On the plus side of no football activity this off season, the 49ers will likely be able to retain the services of Manny Lawson, Dashon Goldson, David Baas, and maybe even Abrayo Franklin or Takeo Spikes, if the team still

Free Agent Blues

The UFL conducted its draft Monday, mostly in obscurity. It’s fair to say that many of the guys this league drafted would normally be in the UDFA pool and the NFL would be swooping in to sign them this week.

De Profundis De Not

The first group of NFL players impacted by the lockout are the Free Agents. Guys who do not have a contract with any team and cannot sign one until there’s a new agreement. This is a pretty large group of

Estate Planning

As I mentioned last Friday, the 49ers have assured us they have a Plan A, B, and C for this off season of uncertainty. I may have left out D and E, but if we get that far into the

All Along the Watchtower

For those keeping tabs, as of today February has sucked for 39.28% 42.85% 46.43% of its total suckdomness. Excruciating. The 49ers have not signed any players or released any players. No one has gotten the franchise tag. The fates of

Merriman to the Niners?

Shawne Merriman was finally put on waivers by the Chargers on Tuesday and there has been some speculation the 49ers will claim him. Greg Manusky coached him in San Diego and likes him, or liked him a few years ago.

2010 Season: Act II

Enough doom and gloom. The 49ers are not going to the play offs this year. They are, however, playing eleven more games. During the off season, fans are so starved for real football action that they go bonkers over an

Putrid Parallels

The first week of the 2010 NFL season is in the books. Underdogs had quite a lift off. The Chiefs beat the Chargers, Texans over Colts, Redskins over Dallas. All these 2009 bottom dwellers were playing at home, although the

Raiders Still Suck!

Nice try, Raiders. Har har hearty har har. Those evil little boys tried everything. They juiced the play clock, they drained the playbook, they begged and prayed — all to no avail as the 49ers treated them like a light

Gimme a D, Gimme an E . . .

The temperature hit triple digits around the Bay Area yesterday, but the 49ers held a late afternoon practice anyway. Michael Crabtree was back in action, but Abrayo Franklin continued to be a no show. Franklin’s attempt to avoid getting injured

The Second Time Around

Today begins a two week stretch of actual almost like football activity for the 49ers. The two week teaser culminates with a three day mandatory mini-camp which will provide a definitive answer to just how serious is this hold out

Squinting at the Horizon V

The final Squint in our week long series focuses on the Linebackers. The Dline gets no peeps in this series because nothing much has changed there from last year’s lineup. Ricky Jean Francois is working at the nose trying to

2006 Draft: Not Bad, Not Great

There are 3 starters, plus a Pro Bowler, from this draft, which should make it a pretty solid effort. But what makes this draft rated lower is that the players selected were so slow to achieve their potential, and with
