They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?

Glad that’s over with. 49er fans have been correct: the football season ended two weeks ago, when the two best teams in the NFL went 15 rounds in Seattle. This game was a true mismatched clunker. Before the game, Joe

Bystander Blues

I’ll be rooting for Denver in Sunday’s Super Bowl. Mostly because I despise the Seahawks. I’d like to see them beaten, and embarrassed would be even better. Tawdry, perhaps, but true. But the fate of the Seahawks casts a shadow

Seahawks 23, 49ers 17

It was a one man show in Seattle Sunday night — for the 49ers, at least. Colin Kaepernick single handedly kept the team in the game with his 130 yards of running until the fourth quarter, then he single handedly

Tough Guys Don’t Dance

The 49ers have generously added yet another game for our viewing pleasure this year with their victory over the Panthers. This will be the third straight year the team has advanced to the NFC Championship Game. Bravo lads! Has it

Quarterfinal Weekend

Cam Newton vs Colin Kaepernick. Tom Brady vs Andrew Luck. Peyton Manning vs Phillip Rivers. Russell Wilson vs Drew Brees. Wow. The Divisional Quarterfinals looks like a Home Run Derby of QBs. The AFC matchups don’t figure to lend much

Elite Eight

The 49ers have leaped over the first hurdle — or maybe they just plowed through the damn little thing. But getting ousted from the playoffs in round one is embarrassing, and we’ll have none of that here. Jim Harbaugh’s first

49ers 19, Seahawks 17

I slept pretty good last night. I wasn’t haunted by visions of that evil bastard Pete Carroll grinning and gloating all the way back to Seattle. Instead, he and his team flew home feeling dented. Not nearly so dominant as

Sgt. Pepper vs the Blue Meanies

The Richter Scale crowds in Seattle are making a mockery of competitive fairness in the NFL. It’s one thing for the home crowd to make it difficult for an opposing offense to operate, but quite another to make it flat

Morning After Pill

Seattle proved Sunday night that they have the loudest bunch of drunks in the world. Their football team, however, has yet to prove they are even a .500 club away from home. They weren’t last year, going 3-5 on the

Seattle 29, 49ers 3

The Seattle Seahawks proved Sunday night that last December’s trashing of the 49ers was no fluke. They trashed them again, perhaps even worse. The final score was 29-3, but this game was over by half time when the score was

Battle in Seattle

That was a fun first week of the return of NFL football. Let’s hope next Monday morning “fun” will still be in our vocabulary and not replaced with “Aaaaaarrrrghhhhh!!” Fun wasn’t on the menu for Tampa Bay fans. They had

Point Blank

The 49ers and their HC Jim Harbaugh have not been winning any popularity polls lately. Darnell Dockett fired the first flames last year by admitting he hated the Niners. But that was when Arizona was considered a contender, not a

They’re Tearing Down Tim Riley’s Bar

The 49ers’ two year reign as NFC West champs will face its sternest challenge this coming season, with many pundits already picking Seattle to unseat our boys at the top of the division in 2013. That might warm Seattle hearts,

Spring Break

The minicamp practices have concluded and the players won’t be in uniform again until Training Camp opens in six weeks. The four non-contact spring practices produced two torn Achilles tendons and one blown ACL knee. Two of the injuries were

1998 Redux

What a great weekend of football. Mostly. Two down to the wire thrillers, and two blow outs — one enjoyable, one boring. Which reminds me, the AFC truly sucks. How about getting some decent teams over there? Peyton Manning is

Down Goes Frazier

San Francisco 49er fans tuned in Sunday night to watch their Super Bowl contending team in action and were instead treated to a throwback game to the Mike Nolan era. The 42-13 drubbing by the Seahawks was their worst beating

Bragging Rights Brawl

The 49ers have a lot on the line this Sunday night in Seattle, but not nearly as much as the Seahawks and their head coach, former failed roofing materials salesman Pete Carroll. His team is as good as it can

The End Is Near

With the victory over the Patriots, the 49ers clinched a playoff spot. They also gave the middle finger to the “regression to norm” stat geeks who solemnly pronounced last summer the Niners 2012 record would only be 9-7. With two

Razing Arizona

Three years and one universe ago, Kurt Warner was the Arizona Cardinals’ quarterback, they were the reigning NFC West champions who had been narrowly defeated in the 2008 Super Bowl, Shaun Hill was the 49ers’ QB, Mike Singletary was beginning

Semester Break

The 49ers zoomed into sole possesion of first place in the NFC West Sunday by lounging pool side while watching Arizona get stuffed by Minnesota. Next Monday night, the team will get to stuff Arizona themselves. Meanwhile, Seattle CB Richard

Black and Blue Beat Down

Whew! Game ball to the 49er offensive line and Frank Gore. With the season on the brink of slipping away, the 49ers came out in the second half Thursday night, awoke from the fog that marked their first half efforts,

Gut Check Game

Thursday night’s game is looking like the most crucial 49er game of the year. A Seahawks loss would give them an 0-3 division mark, probably handing the 49ers any tie breaker scenarios at season’s end. On the other hand, if
