Weirdo Weekend

IIRC, the third week of a season was generally the week that produced wacky happenstances in the NFL. But this year, it was definitely week four. How do you explain yesterday’s results? The unimpressive Browns rolled into the high-flying Ravens’

The Raytown Kid

The 49ers wrapped up their minicamp last week and the offseason practices have come to an end. A few players were too dinged up, for one reason or another, to join in the final festivities: RT Mike McGlinchey WR Deebo

Rams 48, 49ers 32

Drama got no favors from the 49ers this year. It took three games to boot it from the season (Jimmy Garoppolo tears ACL), but only two possessions (fumble, interception) to erase it from the final game. Along the way, George Kittle

Bears 14, 49ers 9

The Chicago Bears brought some old-fashioned smash-mouth football to Santa Clara Sunday afternoon. They shut down the 49ers running game, then shut down their passing  game, then shut them out in the second half, and finally sent 25% of the

49ers 26, Seahawks 23

Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit! After ten straight thumpings, the 49ers finally rose up and smote down the Seattle effing Seahawks. I’m still pinching myself, Shirley. Sunday’s victory was the biggest win of the Kyle Shanahan era

49ers 20, Broncos 14

Every dog has its day and Sunday the 49ers had their second WTF Dog Day of the year. The first was against the Raiders and this was against the Broncos. And both of them  were engineered by Nick Mullens, who has

Seahawks 43, 49ers 16

The 49ers rolled up nearly 500 yards of offense in Seattle on Sunday and … got beat by four touchdowns! If you throw out the losing part, and the 98 yard pick six by Bobby Wagner, and the fumble at the

Bend Over, Here It Comes Again

The 49ers make their annual trek to Seattle this weekend for their annual trouncing by the Seahawks. This will be the seventh consecutive year of embarrassment and futility up north. At the beginning of the season, it looked like things

Buccaneers 27, 49ers 9

The 49ers responded to HC Kyle Shanahan‘s BYE week exhortations and threats by laying a turd Sunday in Tampa Bay. There were some bright spots littered within the fecal display. Rookie WR Dante Pettis got some playing time and caught 4 passes

Cardinals 18, 49ers 15

I confess I missed some of the “action” in Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. I kept getting distracted by some paint drying on a nearby wall. Apparently, Bradley Pinion was winning a spirited punting duel against former 49er Andy Lee, with 7

Rams 39, 49ers 10

Judging by the score, you’d think the 49ers’ defense had a really bad day. But 27 of the Rams 39 points came on drives of 27, 21, 34, 27, and 13 yards. And another two on a blocked punt safety. The

Packers 33, 49ers 30

The 49ers redeemed themselves as a legitimate NFL entity before a national audience Monday night in Green Bay, even though the game oozed away from them in the final four minutes. Fans who enjoy good defense saw nothing much of

Cardinals 28, 49ers 18

The 49ers won the battle for last place in the NFC West Sunday in Santa Clara by drubbing the Arizona Cardinals for three hours while cleverly keeping themselves off the scoreboard in the process of this complete butt whipping. It

It’s In The Cards

The 49ers have been hit hard by injuries lately, but it hasn’t affected the quality of their poor play. The backup players have proved to be nearly as semi-talented as the starters they have replaced. That would be good news,

Chargers 29, 49ers 27

Sunday’s 49ers looked a lot like last year’s 49ers. Gritty, competitive, never-say-die, back-and-forth nail-biter but short end of the stick.  Just enough positive play to stay in the game and just enough mistakes to lose. CJ Beathard filled in admirably

Chiefs 38, 49ers 27

The 49ers season swirled down the toilet Sunday afternoon against the Kansas City Chiefs when late in the game QB Jimmy Garoppolo recklessly went for a couple more yards instead of stepping out of bounds. As he planted his left

Kansas City Star, That’s What He Are

At the beginning of the season, nearly everyone figured the 49ers’ record after two games would be 1-1. There were a couple of guys who felt differently, but they have now clunked to the bottom of the “Prognostications” list, where

49ers 30, Lions 27

As expected, the 49ers rebounded from their loss in Minnesota to easily barely handle the toothless scrappy Detroit Lions. After controlling the game for three quarters, the Niners held a 17 point lead with 11 minutes to go in the

All the World’s a Stage

The first exhibition game is in the books. Ready to be moved to the basement. Next to the boiler. Ready for the winter fires. Just kidding. Nobody has books anymore, or boilers, for that matter. Except in movies where mob

Roster Review

The 49ers defense ranked 24th last year. 22nd against the pass and 22nd against the run. The offense was 12th in yards and 20th in points. 9th in passing yards, 21st in rushing yards. It’s tough to draw too many

Divisional Flip Flop

The Cardinals and Seahawks have owned the NFC West in recent years, but they both look ready to eat some humble pie this coming year. Hahahaha! I don’t have any particular beef with the Cardinals, who are led by one

Was It Good For You?

Oh what a draft it was, it really was … such a draft How well I remember, I’ll always remember … The 49ers Draft Room fellows were typically quite pleased with themselves for their efforts in the 2018 Draft. There’s
