Some Spicy Meatballs

Jim Harbaugh told the fans attending the Pasta Bowl fundraiser Tuesday night that his team will be pushing a tempo that will “eventually overwhelm our opponents.” This comment is similar in purpose to Mike Singletary’s “impose our will” battle cry,

Chasing the Hartebeest

The Bay Area sports Twitter Tweeters had a feeding frenzy Tuesday chasing every leak and rumor morsel regarding the 49ers, their GM search, and Jim Harbaugh. In the end, as predicted a week ago, Trent Baalke was simply promoted to

Dress Rehearsal Rag

Next Sunday’s game will be the defining moment of Alex Smith’s career. Everybody has a defining moment in their lives, and this will be his. A poorly played game, even in victory, will brand him as not the right stuff.

The Liberal Arts Game

It may seem like the season has been on the line for the past twelve games for the 49ers, but next Sunday it really, really is! A loss to the Seattle Seahawks would mathematically eliminate the team from the playoffs.

Don’t Even Think About It

When the season began, Monday night’s game against the Cardinals and the season ending game against the same team were thought to be the crucial games that would decide the NFC West championship. As it is, they are only crucial

No There Here

As the sun sets slowly on the eighth consecutive failed 49ers season, it’s fair to ask: Do I really want to spend the remaining years of my life being a Cubs type fan? Is it healthy to learn to love

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

Ground Hog Day

Is it 2010 or 2008? Alex Smith has a separated shoulder, the defense that was supposed to carry the team has collapsed, the 49ers are 1-6, and the axe is about to come down on the neck of the Head

Last Call For Koolaide

It seems appropriate now to take a quick look at the 2010 season thus far and offer up some feeble excuses for the stumblebum start the 49ers have presented us. This will be the last time this year that any

Is There a “W” in the House?

It’s tough being a 49er fan these days. The team is being ridiculed from sea to shining sea. Mike Singletary is taking a severe beating in both the local and national blogospheres. All my favorite reading holes are poisoned with

Trend Reversal Rehearsal

The 49ers were not expected by many to win Sunday’s game against the Falcons as soon as the schedule was released last spring. Those expectations were certainly not diminished when the team opened the season with three straight losses. A

Sigh.

Losses have personalities. The Seattle loss was disgusting. The Saints loss was encouraging. The Chiefs loss was shocking. This Falcons loss was just depressing. Really, really depressing … with a sprinkling of rage. The kind of loss that makes you

Happy Glooming

The last time there was an in season coaching change for the 49ers was two years ago when Mike Nolan was fired and Mike Singletary became interim HC. The team’s initial response to this upheaval was a lifeless beat down

End of the *!$*!%#@*&* Era

Wednesday was no doubt one of the most important days of the season for the 49ers. It was a day that Mike Singletary had to look his team in the eye and see if they still believed in him. And

Gimme Some of That Old Time Weird

Now that the problems with the offense have been exorcised, what about the defense? We’ve had two mediocre teams make the 2010 49er defense look a whole lot like the 2005 49er defense. El stinky poo poo. How is this

Desperate Hours

The 49ers may not be winning games this year, but they sure are making news. While the news might be fascinating to the national media and fans of other teams, it is not the kind of news any Niner fan

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
