Giants 30, 49ers 27

Close, but no seegar. For the second straight week, the 49ers wracked up a moral victory. And also lost their fourth game in a row. Last week, the defense was respectable and the offense stunk. This week the offense actually

Dumping Ground

It was a nation wide dump on Colin Kaepernick week. It’s gotten so bad, even your faithful steely-eyed scribbler has begun to feel sorry for the poor kid. If he stinks it up again in New York next Sunday night,

49ers 16, Giants 10

It was fun watching other teams lose Sunday. The Seahawks got beat by the Chiefs, the Eagles creamed by the Packers, and the Rams wiped out Denver. It was not much fun watching the 49ers win. In fact, somewhere late

Trap Game Warning

Most of us thought we’d be talking this week about a 4-5 team whose playoff chances were dangling by their last flimsy thread, needing to win out to get into the postseason. I might have led off this piece by

Gut Check Game

Thursday night’s game is looking like the most crucial 49er game of the year. A Seahawks loss would give them an 0-3 division mark, probably handing the 49ers any tie breaker scenarios at season’s end. On the other hand, if

Stinker on the Green

That was butt ugly, folks. Is it too soon to panic? The 49ers lost to the Giants 26-3, but it could have been a lot worse if the Giants hadn’t laughed their way through the fourth quarter. The game started

NFL 2012 Is Up & Running

Ah, a real game. That was fun. I’d have been happy to see either team lose, and unhappy to see either team win. But the Giants have the first loss of the 2012 season and I’ll leave it to the

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

The Future, The Past, The Guillotine

The 2012 Offseason is now open for business and the wonderful players on the 2011 49er team are no longer Our Boys, but our chess pawns. Sorry, guys. It’s a cruel business. Unless you’re a star, which we wish you

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

End of the Line

The 49ers stunning turnaround year blew a tire on the final turn and just that suddenly the life whizzed out of the 2011 season. The Giants moved along to the Super Bowl the same way they did in 1990 —

Prove It Or Lose It

The last time the 49ers were in an NFC Title Game was 1998, against the Atlanta Falcons. The previous week, the team had finally beaten their nemesis, Brett Farve and the Packers, and hopes were high that another SB title

Any Which Way But Lose

It’s Wednesday, which signals an end to the gloating and basking period and a return to fretting over the next game, which just happens to be the NFC Championship Game. One win away from a trip to Super Bowl number

Heaven Can Wait

Old adages die hard. Over the weekend, the two most potent offenses in the NFC were sent packing by the two best defensive teams. In the AFC, the best defense is left to face the best offense, which only got

Dancing With The Stars

This year’s NFC final four is a true national tournament. We’ve got the Giants representing the East, Green Bay the North, New Orleans the South, and San Francisco the West. Groovy. A perfect symmetry. And late Saturday afternoon, the 49er

Mission Accomplished

Things got a bit sweaty in the fourth quarter Sunday, but the 49ers limped out of St. Louis with a 34-27 victory, securing the number two seed in the playoffs, and the much needed week off that goes with this

One Last Hurdle

It would be ironic if the 49ers won the two hard games of this closing three game playoff push and then lost the easy game. And there are words a bit stronger and more pithy than “ironic” that could come

The Homestretch

Monday Night’s game in the Superdome just about guaranteed that the 49ers will not be letting up in the month of December. Nobody, even the Packers, wants to end up in New Orleans during the playoffs. If the 49ers can

The Crying Game

NY Giants head coach Tom Coughlin mentioned after Sunday’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers that he thought his team was in control of the game and he was shocked that they lost. After pouring over the tape of the

Division Divide

At the mid point of the 2011 NFL season, the 49ers have turned the NFC West race into a laugher. A division infamous for nail-biting, down to the wire drama among dog-poo teams abruptly has no drama whatsoever and half

Elite Meet

Sunday’s 49ers opponent, the NY Giants, are on a bit of a roll. They have won three straight games. A squeaker at home over Buffalo, another home squeaker versus Miami, and a road squeaker over the Patriots. Perhaps they should

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?
