Tough Guys Don’t Dance

The 49ers have generously added yet another game for our viewing pleasure this year with their victory over the Panthers. This will be the third straight year the team has advanced to the NFC Championship Game. Bravo lads! Has it

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

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

Fall From Grace

This is normally the time we disparage our upcoming opponents and scoff at any notion they might be able to beat the mighty 49ers. Two wallopings in a row kind of takes the swagger off the mighty, though. I hope

Wheel Spinner Blues

It’s happened to all of us. We get up, struggle through a hard day, and at the end of it realize we didn’t accomplish anything. For many non-Outsiders this is simply a way of life. For some, that way is

The Third Year

For those of us with fertile imaginations or ravenous little children, Peter Cottontail will be hop, hop, hopping into view this weekend, and I’m sure we all breathlessly await his arrival. In keeping with the Tradition perversion fetish of the

You Ain’t Got A Thing, If You Ain’t Got That “Ing”

The NFC Championship Game will feature the number 1 and 2 seeds in the playoffs. How quaintly proper. And there are no wildcard entrants still in the running from either conference. Terrif! The four remaining teams all earned their way

My Kind of Town – Not!

The 49ers’ run defense has lost its vauntedness this year. That’s the general consensus of the blogosphere and the statistics back up this concern. Teams are averaging nearly twenty yards more per game running on the Niners in 2012 versus

The Xth Game

Ronnie Lott once said you didn’t know what kind of team you really had until the tenth game of the season. As it so happens, next Monday’s game against Chicago will be game number ten for the 49ers. I don’t

Razing Arizona

Three years and one universe ago, Kurt Warner was the Arizona Cardinals’ quarterback, they were the reigning NFC West champions who had been narrowly defeated in the 2008 Super Bowl, Shaun Hill was the 49ers’ QB, Mike Singletary was beginning

Hey, Kids! What Time Is It?

The Buffalo Bills are coming to town Sunday and who knows what we’ll get from them? They can play you tough or completely fall apart at a moment’s notice. I’d take them lightly, but after the Minnesota game, I’m not

Ready to Rumble

Tonight at Candlestick Park, Mike Singletary resumes his quest to become the greatest Head Coach who ever lived. Next step for Mike, convince an owner to hire him as a Head Coach. Minnesota deliberated briefly this offseason about promoting Mike

Take It On Faith

This year’s 49er draft class is kind of boring. Nothing is expected from first round pick AJ Jenkins — this year. Fourth rounder, Joe Looney, is on the PUP list recovering from a foot injury. Fifth rounder, Darius Fleming, is

Back To School Week

Theeeeey’re back! Most of them, anyway. Some. Okay, just the rookies and a few vets. But it’s once again “What have you done for me lately?” time. Last season? Old news. The team’s veterans won’t be reporting until Thursday, with

J. O. Y. to the World

It’s been almost six days and Aldon Smith has not been arrested, stabbed, sued, blackmailed, or injured while hang gliding. Way to go, big guy! Only 21 more days on your own that you can screw up before falling under

Dick Nixon Was Here

The third week of OTAs has come and gone without incident … or interest. OTAs were newsfull in past years, but Jim Harbaugh’s closed practices have rendered these sessions useless as fodder providers to the blogosphere. Normally we can fill

OTA Week III of IV

The boys will be back at it again today, whatever “it” is. A closely guarded state secret, mostly. Then again, what’s there to reveal about practices? They got the blocking sleds, the little pads and cones that guys do the

Facial Recognition Teamware

The 49ers’ first three day OTA has concluded. There will now be a four day rest period before the next OTA. Gasp. Wheeze. C’mon, man! What we’ve learned so far is that Frank Gore is primed for another year of

OTA Week I of IV

The first of three OTAs, plus a concluding minicamp, begins Tuesday. I’m not sure if the players get to actually touch each other yet, let alone play partially real football. The offseason rules of the new CBA are convoluted enough

Pucker Up And Blow

It’s generally assumed the 49ers will have a very good year in 2012. Heck, this site gooped as much just last Friday. But one thing the 2012 season won’t have is the amazed glee the 2011 season provided. The 2011
