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

Trading Places

The 49ers threw themselves into the opening Free Agency scrum with vigor, swapping out departing SS Donte Whitner with SS Antoine Bethea, trading low round draft picks for backup QB Blaine Gabbert and reclamation project Olineman Jonathan Martin, and re-signing

Wildcard Weekend

The 49ers successfully dodged a bullet this week by giving the players a few days off and Aldon Smith did not make the news for the wrong reasons. The team went back to work Thursday and began getting ready for

The Outsider likes to spoof former 49er head coach Mike Nolan because it’s fun and it always riled up the Igloo Man who has evidently departed the premises. But, with Tuesday’s Pro Bowl announcements, Nolan’s last draft here, the 2007

Airing It Out

The 49ers have played one game of the 2011 NFL season. Which they won. It doesn’t seem like much, but last year at this time, they had lost that first game, lost it badly, and the season quickly spiraled out

Final Dress Rehearsals

The upcoming week is probably the last week of competition for starting jobs and roster spots. After next Saturday’s game against the Texans, the final two weeks of practice will be focused on the opening game against Seatlle, and the

FA Brake Down

There’s been a lot of early season jitters as the blogorama shakes off the rust of the long offseason and gets its tonsils game ready. But one week into the new season, the collective nerves seem to be settling down

One Weak Wonders

The Great 2011 Free Agency Manhunt enters its seventh day this morning and a football starved world has come out of hiding to gush and moan for six solid days. The Eagles and Jets have generated the most buzz, but

Pre-Game Nerves

As we head into the last two days of the lockout, 49er fans seem most concerned about the defense. Five starters from last year’s team are currently free agents. And one starter, Nate Clements, has a salary that has ballooned

Defense of the Realm

In the previous post, this knothole peeper suggested that the 49ers’ success or failure in 2011 depended on the improved performance of the defense, which finished 2010 ranked 16th in the league. This observation was immediately and viciously attacked by

They Call Me Al

The second edition of Camp Alex begins today, featuring Coach Alex instructing Himself Alex and the Supporting Cast Alex as to the fundamentals of Jim “I ♥ Alex” Harbaugh’s playbook. Alextrifying moments ahead this week, 49er fans. There have been

Naming Rights

Michael Crabtree weighed in decisively and affirmatively on the UQB issue Monday, refusing to be nudged into supplanting the “U” with an “N(ame)”. You can hardly fault the guy, given his brief history in 49er land. In his first year,

Hypothetical Hypnosis

On the plus side of no football activity this off season, the 49ers will likely be able to retain the services of Manny Lawson, Dashon Goldson, David Baas, and maybe even Abrayo Franklin or Takeo Spikes, if the team still

To Halve and Halve Not

Not a single game of football was played yesterday, from sea to shining sea. Rudely enough, most of the sports world moved right along to other sports, like basketball, golf, racing, and baseball. Even rugby! This is the sort of

Ugly And Beautiful

The 49ers have now dodged a season ending bullet two games in a row. For two straight games, they’ve played like losers and somehow come out winners. This has not happened much for this franchise lately. In fact, it’s been

That’ll Be All, Mr. Carr

Looks like Troy Smith will start Sunday’s game for the 49ers, not David Carr. Sounds good to me. We haven’t seen Smith play yet, but we saw Carr last week. More importantly, so did the Denver Broncos. Smith may not

2010 Season: Act II

Enough doom and gloom. The 49ers are not going to the play offs this year. They are, however, playing eleven more games. During the off season, fans are so starved for real football action that they go bonkers over an

The Missing Ornament

I had a dream last night that the 49ers beat the Eagles 59-0. In the dream, as the team lined up for its first offensive play of the game, one by one little light bulbs popped up over the helmets

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

A Mega Wet Turd

Nine months of thirsty optimism for the 49ers glorious march back into the NFL playoffs in 2010 was rewarded Sunday when the team squeezed out one of the nastiest looking foul specimens you would ever want to have the misfortune

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.

Nighty-night to the Off Season

The long off season is nearly at an end (gasp, wheeze). Before we forget about it completely, except to scour blog archives for damning rebuttals to posters that peeve us, let’s trot through it for one last recap before training
