49ers 17, Falcons 16

A funny thing happened on the 49ers journey toward the number one pick in the 2016 draft. They screwed up and won a game against the fading Atlanta Falcons. Little did they know that their much maligned backup QB Blaine

Quarterfinal Weekend

Cam Newton vs Colin Kaepernick. Tom Brady vs Andrew Luck. Peyton Manning vs Phillip Rivers. Russell Wilson vs Drew Brees. Wow. The Divisional Quarterfinals looks like a Home Run Derby of QBs. The AFC matchups don’t figure to lend much

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 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

Dancing with the Stars

As most fans are aware, blog superstar Alex Smith will be coming into our view Friday as QB of the Kansas City Chiefs, our second preseason opponent. For the Smith Haters, this will be a chance to root against the

All Wanking Spanners to the Plow

We’re almost there. Eight days until Training Camp starts and the 2013 season opens for business. If memory serves, the rookies report in first, followed a couple days later by the veterans. The most anticipated scene of the first day

For Their Eyes Only

We’re half way through the offseason. And less than a week away from the resumption of football related activity. Rookie minicamp begins this Friday, May 10th, and lasts three days. A week and a half later, on May 21, the

NFC Rules

Trent Baalke’s drafts don’t tend to light a fire under the fan base that burns brightly for several weeks, accompanied by lots of gushing and slobbering. Just the opposite. Head scratching is more like it. With Baalke, you have to

Humbug Gazette

It’s 2013, as you non-hibernating bipeds may have noticed, which means the Mayan’s tenuous grasp of life on earth has been relegated to the basement wing of The Knowledge Building. Down there with the earth is flat fellows. As usual

The Coma Before the Storm

For the past eighteen years, the last two weeks in January have been reserved for denial, anger, depression, avoidance — all the classic pysche tricks to deal with another disappointing end to the 49ers’ season. I was still a young

Heart of a Champion

Before the NFC Championship Game, former San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo referred to the upcoming game as “just a warm up.” As it turned out, he was eerily correct. The 49ers took a quarter to warm up, while the

Heroes and Heartbreaks

Eddie Debartolo thinks the 49ers should beat Green Bay Saturday night because they have a better team. Short, simple, and basic. Best team wins. This formula proved perfect in last weekend’s wild card games. Best team won in all four

Middle Big Man

The 49ers have finally completed their climb to the top of the NFL rankings. Numero Uno, baby. What does this mean? Pretty much nothing, baby. Unless you’re a 49er fan commenting on an Oakland Raiders’ blog site. Yeah, baby. Lots

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

IT Came From Outer Space

The IT factor is tossed around on the blogosphere on an almost daily basis. NFL players must possess this undefinable somethingness or they can never be considered true championship caliber HOF dudes. Alex Smith, of course, was the foremost player

The Distorted Man

Yesterday, I remarked that there is little chance that Alex Smith will not settle in as the Franchise QB this coming season. Some folks might consider this remark a bit of an overstatement. Wishful thinking. Out and out balderdash. But
