Dancing with the Stars

As most fans are aware, blog superstar Alex Smith will be coming into our view Friday as QB of the Kansas City Chiefs, our second preseason opponent. For the Smith Haters, this will be a chance to root against the

For Their Eyes Only

We’re half way through the offseason. And less than a week away from the resumption of football related activity. Rookie minicamp begins this Friday, May 10th, and lasts three days. A week and a half later, on May 21, the

Back to Business

The Rams come to Candlestick on Sunday with a chance to tie up their all time series with the 49ers, who currently lead 62-61-2. The chances the Rams will do so? Squat. I probably shouldn’t be so cavalier about their

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

The Betting Window Is Open

[UPDATE: Monday evening the 49ers signed Randy Moss to a one year contract. See the comment section for the various thoughts of Outsider readers regarding this unexpected development.] Tuesday at 4:00pm EDT, the 2012 Free Agency gates swing open, freeing

Highway 49 Revisited

The first round of the 2011 playoffs is in the books, with all four home teams winning. There will be no wild card entrants advancing to the Super Bowl this year. Football purists everywhere are pleased. And so is everyone

A Scoop of Vanilla

The 49er bar was set pretty low when the 2011 season began. For the past few years, the goal was simply to win the NFC West. To draft and recruit players who could beat Seattle, Arizona, and St. Louis. To

The Crow Cafe

Okay, back to reality. There’s eleven more games to play this season. The injury to Josh Morgan is a pointed reminder how quickly sweet can turn sour in the NFL. Still, looking at the QB rankings after five weeks of

Defense of the Realm

In the previous post, this knothole peeper suggested that the 49ers’ success or failure in 2011 depended on the improved performance of the defense, which finished 2010 ranked 16th in the league. This observation was immediately and viciously attacked by

Peaches and Puleese

Now that it appears the NFL will have a full training camp and preseason, perhaps we can begin to realistically discuss the 49ers chances for success in 2011. If not realistically, then at least without the constant parenthetical qualification of

No Mas!

Last year, the 49ers treated their fans to the worst shellacking in franchise history. Yesterday, the 49ers treated their fans to the worst game in 50 years and the first home shut out since the Joe Thomas era. Both of

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

September Song

September was my least favorite month when I was a kid. It meant the end of summer vacation and time to go back to school. One of the happiest moments of my life occurred when I walked out the door

Dad, Are We There Yet?

In the 2009 Draft, the allegedly great GM Scot Pioli of the Chiefs drafted D-lineman Tyson Jackson with the 3rd over all pick. Rumors at the time had it that Jackson was the guy the 49ers wanted to draft. Instead,
