Halfway to the Beginning

I’d like to say that the 49er offense looks okay and the defense looks great, but we haven’t really seen either one of them play much through two exhibition games. It’s been one series and off to the bench for

We’re Off and Stumbling

The 49ers opened the 2013 season with a 7 minute, 13 play drive that honked out in the Red Zone, forcing them to settle for a FG. Hmmm. That was the all too familiar script in the 2012 season, right

Minicamp Munchies

The first day of minicamp produced a torrent of news that didn’t abate until the entire bottom of a thimble had been dampened. AJ Jenkins caught a difficult pass and Scott Tolzien tossed two to four interceptions, depending which beat

Last Rehearsal For Opening Night

The 49ers appear to have sufficient depth at every position on the offense, but there are some nervous making areas on defense. The drop off from starter to backup at OLB and the safety positions is down right scary. It

Easy Peasey

Friday’s opening exhibition game was quite an improvement over last year’s opening debacle in New Orleans. I wish it meant something more significant than polite applause. Still, it was football and we now get to see it every week till

Fourteen Days

Training Camp is now two weeks from lift off and heading into it, the starting lineup appears to be set. This is good, but it also sucks. Most of the mystery of TC will be absent. The pecking order at

Feeding the Beast

In the past three drafts, Trent Baalke has grabbed six offensive linemen, and brought in another in FA. That’s a focused commitment to the old adage that the game is won and lost in the trenches. Only two guys are

QB or Not QB

This year’s training camp and preseason games will be quite a bit different than the previous seven years have been. The 49ers are the reigning NFC West champions, not the team that might be good or might be bad. They’re

Was It Good For You, Too?

Which one is the loser? It was exciting subbing in for New York this past two weeks, but a little exhausting. Thankfully, the Jets have reclaimed the news feed throne by trading for Tim Tebow, bringing it all back home

Two weeks from Free Agency lift off. Contrary to last year, there aren’t a lot of skeptics who will be howling if Trent Baalke sits out the first week of action. Baalke was a very cool customer last year, as
