Class Consciousness

We’re seven weeks into the 2013 season and the league picture is coming into focus. Unlike America, which seems bent on destroying the middle class, the NFL, which prefers parity, has a solid block of middle class teams. In the

Roster Massage

Six games into the season and nine teams are spinning their wheels at 3-3. That’s good enough for first place in the NFC East now and maybe even all season long. Two teams are a perfect 6-0, Denver and Kansas

Alas, Poor Yorick

Watching former 49er head coach Mike Nolan’s Atlanta defense get shredded Monday night by the Jets(!) and failing to protect the lead in the last two minutes of the game was a painful reminder that it was not so long

49ers 34, Packers 28

Whew! The 49ers beat the Packers for the third straight time Sunday, 34-28. It was a seesaw battle between two prolific passing attacks that wasn’t decided until late in the fourth quarter when the Niners scored to take the lead

49ers 41, Chargers 6

The 49ers walked all over the Chargers Thursday night, 41-6, ending the exhibition season with a 3-1 record. A week from Sunday, the 2013 season will be underway. When Training Camp began, the team had Anquan Boldin and a cast

49ers 34, Vikings 17

We poor, nervous fans got a little clarity Sunday night as the 49er first teamers chucked off the rust, played most of the first half, and took a 20-7 half time lead on the way to cruising past the Vikings

Turn on the Bubble Machine

The trade that sent AJ Jenkins to Kansas City in exchange for Jon Baldwin just about wrapped up the wide receiver competition. It looks like the 49ers will be keeping Anquan Boldin, Quinton Patton, Marlon Moore, Kyle Williams, and Baldwin.

Halfway to the Beginning

I’d like to say that the 49er offense looks okay and the defense looks great, but we haven’t really seen either one of them play much through two exhibition games. It’s been one series and off to the bench for

Sensible Shoes

The candidates to fill the shoes at nose tackle and free safety — Ian Williams and Eric Reid — both played well in the first exhibition game. The sky, which had been threatening to fall all down upon our 49er

We’re Off and Stumbling

The 49ers opened the 2013 season with a 7 minute, 13 play drive that honked out in the Red Zone, forcing them to settle for a FG. Hmmm. That was the all too familiar script in the 2012 season, right

Uppers and Downers

Colin Kaepernick is expected to have a sensational season this year, and maybe he will. But all the gushing over him is making me nervous. Life does occasionally throw a sensation party for one of its denizens, true. But there’s

Lip O Suck Shun

Easter has come and gone, and those of you who attempt to give devout behavior at least a smidgeon of your attention can now ease back into your wicked and sinful ways. Those of you who are devoutless devotees can
