Patriots 30, 49ers 17

Inspired by the presence of Eddie Debartolo and a host of star players from the glory years, the current 49ers made their own history Sunday afternoon by losing their record tying ninth straight game. Next weekend, they’ll travel to Miami

Nothing But Nyet

The evil New England Patriots come to town this Sunday, looking to beat up on the local boys. Chances are better than good they’ll do exactly that. The defense finally stopped getting traumatized by opposing teams’ rushing attacks last Sunday.

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

Elite Eight

The 49ers have leaped over the first hurdle — or maybe they just plowed through the damn little thing. But getting ousted from the playoffs in round one is embarrassing, and we’ll have none of that here. Jim Harbaugh’s first

Heart of a Champion

Before the NFC Championship Game, former San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo referred to the upcoming game as “just a warm up.” As it turned out, he was eerily correct. The 49ers took a quarter to warm up, while the

Break On Through

Here we are again. One year later and one game away from a trip to the Super Bowl. The 49ers must prevail Sunday or the world will surely end. Once again Jim Harbaugh and John Harbaugh both have their teams

1998 Redux

What a great weekend of football. Mostly. Two down to the wire thrillers, and two blow outs — one enjoyable, one boring. Which reminds me, the AFC truly sucks. How about getting some decent teams over there? Peyton Manning is

The End Is Near

With the victory over the Patriots, the 49ers clinched a playoff spot. They also gave the middle finger to the “regression to norm” stat geeks who solemnly pronounced last summer the Niners 2012 record would only be 9-7. With two

A Tale of Two Halfs

The San Francisco 49ers stomped the New England Patriots in the first half like they have not been stomped in ten years or so. The Patriots stomped the 49ers in the second half like they have not been stomped since

Face Off in Foxborough

The last time the 49ers played the Patriots was 2008, a 30-21 loss at Candlestick. Matt Cassel was the Patriot QB and Mike Nolan was the 49er Head Coach. Nolan was fired two games later and Cassel is now sucking

Don’t Mention It

As previously noted, the Detroit Lions will be coming to the Bay Area this weekend for a nationally televised Sunday night butt whipping. Not to be out done by this generous gesture of voluntary humiliation, Alex Smith will provide three

Power Shifts

The first decade of the 21st Century was dominated by three teams: the Colts, the Patriots, and the Steelers. Those three teams accounted for six of the ten SB champions. Philadelphia, Baltimore, and San Diego had good teams that always

RIP 2011

Welcome to the San Francisco 49ers’ 2012 Offseason! There’s nothing happening. Yet. But at least the pretenders are finally off the stage. Nice game Sunday, but the best game of the postseason was Saints vs Niners. Either one of those

Coping Machinationisms

I’m trying to feel lousy about the 49ers losing the NFC Championship game, but it isn’t working. I feel bad, certainly. But not lousy. If I was a Packers fan or a Saints fan, I would feel lousy. Those two

Base Camp Established

At the halfway point of the 2011 NFL season, Hell has frozen over, the sun now rises in the west, and the San Francisco 49ers sit atop the NFC West standings. Shit, Martha, have I died and gone to Heaven?

Capital Conquest

The 49ers continued their destruction of competitive balance in the NFC West Sunday by winning their sixth straight game and extending their division lead to five games. The magic number at the halfway point of the season is FOUR! Putting

The Bill & the Fat Boys Division

Those not blessed with Short Term Memory Loss will recall from last week’s posts that this site is on a Magic Carpet Tour of the divisions in the NFL outside the 49ers NFC West domain. And we have so far
