Back To Work Week

On Saturday, Raiders’ HC Dennis Allen said it was time for his team to make its move. Sunday, they did — backwards, losing ignominiously at home to the woeful Eagles 49-20. Back to the drawing board, Dennis. Need a little

Roster Massage

Six games into the season and nine teams are spinning their wheels at 3-3. That’s good enough for first place in the NFC East now and maybe even all season long. Two teams are a perfect 6-0, Denver and Kansas

49ers 34, Vikings 17

We poor, nervous fans got a little clarity Sunday night as the 49er first teamers chucked off the rust, played most of the first half, and took a 20-7 half time lead on the way to cruising past the Vikings

Dubious Assessments

The top story of Training Camp so far has been injuries. Let’s hope this is just an early season rash, and not a season long epidemic. The wide receivers have been hardest hit, with six of them standing on the

Pawn to K-4

It’s July, and we’re two weeks through the awful empty hours between OTAs and Training Camp. Time to get the little play toys out on the board and preside over their fate. While we await the next episode of Extreme

Roster Roulette

Last year, the 49ers returned all 22 starters on offense and defense. Ergo sumatra, there was no place for any of the 2012 rookies to squeeze into the starting lineup. That’s not the case this year. There are three vacancies

Board Walk

Poking around the internet through the various mock drafts, it appears the consensus first round pick the 49ers are expected to make is FS Eric Reid. Or Alabama DT Jesse Williams. Or LSU SS Matt Elam, or S Jonathan Cyprien

The Harbaugh Factor

Most mock drafts have the 49ers selecting QB Blaine Gabbert with the number seven pick in tonight’s 2011 NFL Draft. Most 49er fans aren’t thrilled with this mock scenario, preferring the team goes defense with its first pick. If this
