Rocky Road Ahead

Half the 49er season is already over. Sigh. If only the offseason moved this quickly. At this time of the year, we’re normally finishing the autopsy and preparing a eulogy, so this is uncharted territory. A perfect half season. Zounds!

The bloom is off the rose. The honeymoon is over. The sky is falling – once again. Yes, folks, after a brief vacation in the Kool-Aid tropics, Gloom and Doom have resumed their lengthy stay in the House of York.

Extreme Makeover

The 49ers have taken the term “cleaning house” to a level that would make an OCD housewife beam proudly. By the time Free Agency and the Draft have come and gone, the entire building will not have a clue who

Let the Games Begin

The 2015 NFL season is finally upon us. Fittingly, the 49ers and Vikings will be the last teams to play on the opening weekend, scheduled for the late game of a Monday Night football doubleheader. Jim Harbaugh never lost an

Southern Discomfort

The 49ers made their first player cuts from 90 down to 75 fairly painlessly. A few camp fodder lads were released, Parys Haralson was traded to the Saints, and about ten guys were pushed off the roster and stashed onto

Somebody To Love

The 2013 NFL Scouting Combine begins this week in Indianapolis. It represents a stirring to life from the NFL football coma that we all lapse into after the end of our particular team’s season. An event that takes place on

Scrubs Drub Bolts

The 49er first stringers took the night off, but the second and third stringers looked like Super Bowl contenders Thursday night aqainst the Chargers. 35-3. What a butt kicking. Norv Turner’s team looked like all 75 players took the night

I Shoes

In a strangely candid moment, Greg Roman told the media Tuesday that Anthony Dixon would make the team. That means Rock Cartwright most likely won’t. It makes sense, I suppose, if you get your fingers in there for some careful

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

Chips & Dips

It’s a great feeling watching all these teams interviewing new HC candidates, doing the Rooney Rule dance, looking for franchise redemption, and knowing the 49ers have solved this riddle for a long, long time. Not that everything is going to

Champagne Brunch

Back to work week for our intrepid 49er lads who tasted defeat last Thursday for the first time since mid-September. Even in defeat, however, Dame Fortune remained kind to the team by sneaking into Seattle on Sunday and inducing the

Miked Up

Next Sunday the 49ers have a game against the Washington Inappropriately Nameds, who practice in Virginia and play in Maryland and never set foot in Washington. A true D.C. tradition. The Washingtons are coached by The Ultimate Leader, Mike “Bug

Flavor of the Month

Last call for vanilla. We hope. Is anybody going to watch this game? Maybe the first quarter or half. The blackout was lifted in San Diego, so the stadium is going to be filled to the brim with invisible patrons.

Lower the Casket

The 2010 NFL season is now officially toast. The people in Green Bay and their fans in other cities and towns will try to keep it open for the next six months, but for the other 31 NFL franchises it

The Exorcist

Rams quarterback Sam Bradford has been publicly wringing his hands about having to learn a new playbook in his second season. Ha ha. Whiner. Try learning a new one every year for five straight years, Sam, then get back to

Roads Out of Town

After yesterday’s guest post by Phoenix Envy, this site returns to its usual SF 49ers focus. Now, now. No booing out there. Put down those tomatoes. It may not mean anything in the great scheme of things, but that was

Put Up or Shut Up Time

If there is going to be any meaning at all to this so far miserable season, it will have to occur now. For the 49ers, the 2010 playoffs begin this week. They will have to go at least 6-2 in
