Mission Improbable

It’s tough shaking this one off. The Super Bowl loss is not that hard to cope with, but the cloud it casts over the 2013 season is another matter. Only one team — the 1971 Miami Dolphins — has ever

OTA Week III of IV

The boys will be back at it again today, whatever “it” is. A closely guarded state secret, mostly. Then again, what’s there to reveal about practices? They got the blocking sleds, the little pads and cones that guys do the

Oh, My Darling

Today’s topic is Patrick Willis. He’s great. He’s awesome. Everybody agrees. Next up, the NFC West now has the 2010 (Sam Bradford), 2011 (Kevin Kolb), and 2012 (Matt Flynn) QB debutante darlings. And nobody’s darling, Alex Smith. Looks like the

Comings and Goings

The 2012 Free Agency period roared into action Tuesday afternoon, as it usually does. What was not usual was the 49ers being among the early roarers. Last year, they waited till all the roaring had subsided before picking through the

Hangin’ Round the Ink Well

Ink flowing is not normally as fascinating to observe as is paint drying, grass growing, or televised Combine events, but this could change in the next two weeks. The 49ers have until March 13th to re-sign currently held players or

Milk Carton Man

Most of the time, disappearing acts and football are not a good combination. Ask Michael Crabtree, who vanished during the playoffs. But someone else dropped off the radar screen in 2011, too, and it was a very good thing. One

Auld Lang Syne

The Catch happened 30 years ago this week, launching a 49er empire, and there is a lot of nostalgia floating around Centennial Blvd. these days. Montana, Lott, Rice, Craig, and Clark were all onstage Tuesday night for some sort of

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

Against All Odds

Poise. Good teams have it. Bad teams don’t. The 2010 49ers did not have it. The 2011 team most surely does. The 49ers completed a season sweep of the Seahawks Saturday in a game reminiscent of their victory over Detroit

R-E-S-P-E-C-T (just a little bit)

Harbaugh vs Harbaugh, Lewis vs Willis, Gore vs Rice, and Ravens D vs Niners D. These will be the story angles that will be beaten to death by the time Thursday’s game kicks off. We do not intend to flog

Trading Places

20-16, 24-9, 27-6, 38-7. Those are the scores of the past four Cardinals/49ers games — all San Francisco victories. The first one anyway. The last three were more like stompings. Is there likely to be a reversal of Arizona fortunes

A Day at the Office

An excellent Defense is a fan’s best friend. The 2011 49ers have such a friend. As the team takes the field each week, we don’t know how well the offense is going to do, in terms of getting points on

The Signature Win

The San Francisco 49ers are back! Sunday’s dramatic come back win over the Philadelphia Eagles was no fluke, ladies and gentlemen. This was a win by a team that suddenly came of age. A team that believed in itself finally

Here Comes the Judge

Two days till the 49ers open the 2011 season at home against the Seattle Seahawks. But a virtual Iron Curtain has been erected around 4949 Centennial Blvd. by new coach Jim Harbaugh and nobody has any idea what kind of

Spine Bottom Roulette

The 49ers’ Training Camp 2011 ended Thursday, and the players broke camp by checking out of their hotel rooms, I guess, because they don’t go anywhere for camp any more. With the new CBA banning two-a-days, you can’t call these

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

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

2010 49ers: FAIL!

Now that we’ve dispensed with the football part of the 49er 2010 NFL season, fans can begin to focus once again on what has become the staple of the San Francisco 49ers in the twenty-first century: booing. Another year, another

Gimme Some of That Old Time Weird

Now that the problems with the offense have been exorcised, what about the defense? We’ve had two mediocre teams make the 2010 49er defense look a whole lot like the 2005 49er defense. El stinky poo poo. How is this

Over the weekend, somewhere in the vicinity of 700 NFL players were laid off. 256 of them got hired back at much lower wages to fill out the practice squads around the league. All of these PS fellows are young

The 49ers closed out the 2010 Exhibition Season by beating the Chargers 17-14 in a largely empty Candlestick Park stadium. There were no initial reports of any serious injuries. Whew!!! The emergence of Phillip Adams has got to be the
