OTA Lift Off

The news out of camp from the year’s first OTA practices was mostly good. The best news was Michael Crabtree has not yet broken or maimed any part of his tootsies. In five years, he’s only started a season healthy

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

Baalke’s Big Adventure

Here we are at last. The 2014 NFL Draft will actually, finally, mercifully take place this week, beginning Thursday evening. The 49ers have the 30th pick in the first round and just about nobody expects them to sit waiting to

Orlando Gazette

49ers HC Jim Harbaugh says Frank Gore has three more good years left in his tank. He also says the team needs a 3rd WR who can get open and make plays. If this site endorsed sarcasm, we might reply,

Scouting Combine Week

The NFL stirs back to life this week with the annual Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. We’ll be hearing about wingspan, 40 yard dash times, bench presses, Wonderlic scores, and a variety of other goofy measurements and drills — all designed

Seahawks 23, 49ers 17

It was a one man show in Seattle Sunday night — for the 49ers, at least. Colin Kaepernick single handedly kept the team in the game with his 130 yards of running until the fourth quarter, then he single handedly

49ers 23, Panthers 10

The Carolina Panthers came out in the first half geeked up on adrenalin and tried to bully the San Francisco 49ers off the field. Despite all their huffing and puffing, the Niners used an opening drive and a closing drive

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 23, Packers 20

The San Francisco 49ers survived a nail-biter at Lambeau Sunday night, beating the Green Bay Packers 23-20 on a game ending field goal by ex-Browns kicker Phil Dawson, the exact same score of the previous game against Arizona. The mighty

Scoreboard Watchers Weekend

Last week of the 2013 season. Green Bay at Chicago for the NFC North title. Philadelphia at Dallas for the NFC East title. Saints are win-and-in versus Tampa Bay. Carolina and Seattle could both win their divisions and get the

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

49ers 19, Seahawks 17

I slept pretty good last night. I wasn’t haunted by visions of that evil bastard Pete Carroll grinning and gloating all the way back to Seattle. Instead, he and his team flew home feeling dented. Not nearly so dominant as

Sgt. Pepper vs the Blue Meanies

The Richter Scale crowds in Seattle are making a mockery of competitive fairness in the NFL. It’s one thing for the home crowd to make it difficult for an opposing offense to operate, but quite another to make it flat

49ers 23, Rams 13

In like a lion, out like a lamb. And so it came to pass, as the San Francisco 49ers sent the red hot St. Louis Rams bleating and whimpering into the sunset, 23-13. The 49er defense had yet another outstanding

Theoretical Physics

The St. Louis Rams come to town Sunday, fresh from shellacking Indianapolis 38-8 and Chicago 42-21. Goodness. These fellows don’t seem to be the same team the 49ers mauled 35-11 back in September. The biggest change has been the emergence

The Fallen Idols Bowl

Now that fans have expressed their outrage over losing a game nobody expected us to win in the first place, it’s time to move along to the next opponent. One that the 49ers specialize in beating — a losing team.

Saints 23, 49ers 20

It was a game the offense deserved to lose and a game the defense deserved to win. In the end, the home town refs stepped in to prevent the defensive win by negating a strip sack fumble with a cheesy

Lowered Expectations

Bouquets have been pouring into 49er HQ this week, with encouraging sentiments such as “GET AN OFFENSE, YOU STINKING BUMS!” OC Greg Roman seems to be getting the most bouquets, followed closely by QB Colin Kaepernick and the group politely

Panthers 10, 49ers 9

For the second time this year, a frisky young team came into Candlestick and used the 49ers as a launching pad into NFL respectability. First it was the Colts, who used their offense to bowl us over. Then Sunday, the

Back To Work Week

On Saturday, Raiders’ HC Dennis Allen said it was time for his team to make its move. Sunday, they did — backwards, losing ignominiously at home to the woeful Eagles 49-20. Back to the drawing board, Dennis. Need a little

Slow Weekend

Not much happening at 49er HQ this week. That is all. Just kidding. I have some more words to throw around here, if I can just find them. Not sure why the team is dribbling out the player activations. Tank

49ers 31, Titans 17

The 49ers flicked aside the Tennessee Titans Sunday 31-17 in a game that was surprisingly ho-hum. A real meat and potatoes special. Some running, some passing, some dumb opponent penalties, an interception, a special teams TD, and some great defense.
