Halftime Highlights

Halfway through the season, the Niners have become the musical chairs franchise. QBs in, QBs out. RBs in, RBs out. CBs in, CBs out. TEs in, TEs out. RG and RT in and out and in and out. Apparently, our

Job Listings

Only three more weeks before the bill starts coming due on Jed York‘s offseason catastrophe. Currently, there are four jobs up for grabs as we head into Training Camp: LDE, RCB, RG, and slot CB. The LDE winner will be

The Great Divide

It’s been a long time since the blogosphere was this polarized. Not since the pre-Harbaugh days of Alex Smith. Heading into the 2015 season, bloggers either think the franchise is just fine, or they think it’s become a laughingstock. There’s

Can Anybody Play This Game?

June is here, which means three more months until the grand opening of The Return to Mediocrity Era. Featuring an ever evolving cast of entirely forgettable coaches and players. Hip hip kerplunk! Today, we’ll look at the 2012 Draft class,

March of Many Dimes

The 2015 Free Agent market opens for business on Tuesday at 1:00pm PST, as well as the new NFL year. Bear in mind, Seattle still lost the Super Bowl to end the 2014 season and the jeering period has not

Hit The Road, Jack

With one week left before the start of Free Agency, the 49ers have yet to re-sign any of their soon to be unrestricted players. All of these fellows are more likely to get better offers from other teams than what

Baalkan Island

For the next two months, it will be GM Trent Baalke‘s turn to show us what he can do. Free agency begins in two weeks, followed by the draft in late April. Everyone seems to be clamoring for a fast

Farewell Parties

Just over three weeks until the start of Free Agency. Hopefully, that will give the 49ers’ FO enough time to finish assembling an entire coaching staff, or at least parading them out there in a formal introduction. But, maybe Jim

49ers 21, Chargers 7

The spectacular 49er offense sputtered and clanked its way to a blowout 21-7 victory Sunday afternoon. After the starters got off the field, that is. Those bums played five and a half minutes into the second quarter and produced three

Little Big Men

It only took three practices to answer the question about what to do with the crowded situation at running back. The answer was “Never mind.” First Kendall Hunter went out for the year with an ACL tear, then LaMichael James

2014 Draft: Day Two

The 49ers were quiet on Day One of the 2014 Draft, but Day Two was a whole other matter. GM Trent Baalke made 5 trades up and down the board and one completely outside the board, netting 5 players and

Split Decision

The 49ers have drafted in the top eleven for seven straight years, six of which they actually drafted there, or will, and one of which Bill Belichick drafted there while they took Kentwan Balmer down near the bottom of the

Horses and Dogs

The 49ers finished 3rd in the NFC West last year. This was very disheartening, if I may understate the issue. That plain statement of fact hurts worse than all the cuss words in the Urban Dictionary or Unca_Chuck’s blog that

Man or Mirage Game

Next Sunday will be the tenth game of the season, but the NFC playoff teams are already pretty much identifiable. The Giants and Eagles, the Falcons and Saints, the Packers, and the token representative of the NFC West. The Bears

3-5, 2-6, 2-6, 3-5, 2-6

Another year, another dismal first half for the San Francisco 49ers. Today’s post title represents the team’s first half record for the years 2006 – 2010. There seems to be a pattern here, and it’s not a good thing. The

The blogosphere is like the home crowd of a road game. If they are quiet, the 49ers are winning the game. If they’re roaring, the 49ers ain’t be scoring. It was fairly quiet Tuesday. Considering the Niners lost the game,

49ers Win Scrub Bowl 17-14

The 49ers closed out the 2010 Exhibition Season by beating the Chargers 17-14 in a largely empty Candlestick Park stadium. There were no initial reports of any serious injuries. Whew!!! The emergence of Phillip Adams has got to be 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

49ers 15, Farvettes 10

While watching the Bret Farve telethon Sunday night, I was surprised to see a 49er exhibition game spliced into the fawning endeavor. How annoying. What was NBC thinking? There must have been at least a hundred more facial expressions that

Ready, Set, Splat!

We wait seven months and 14 days to see the San Francisco 49ers again trot out onto the field and Michael Robinson promptly fumbles on the very first play. I was laughing for ten minutes after that pratfall. Then the

2010 TC X: Stick a Fork in It

The 2010 49ers Training Camp ends today and here are some observations on what was accomplished during the past two weeks. Moving our two number one draft picks into the starting lineup was a fervent wish and it was granted.

2010 TC V & VI: Mid-Camp Notes

One week into camp and already Mike Iupati and Anthony Davis have moved into the starting lineup, replacing David Baas and Adam Snyder. It’s possible that this is only a temporary move to give both of these rookies as many
