It Didn’t Play in Peoria

One more game until the most anticipated match-up of the entire season: Jed York vs. Bay Area Media. The last time York faced the media, nearly a year ago, he was broiled alive. And that was before the 2015 season

Back to Work Week

After an intense week of delusional therapy, the 49ers resume their fall from grace this week by traveling to Seattle to be squashed like a bug before returning home to be thoroughly thrashed by the Arizona Cardinals. At that point,

Rams 27, 49ers 6

The 49ers ran their perfect non-winning road streak to 4 games Sunday by flying to St. Louis and straight into the Rams windshield, where they were scraped off 27-6. In losing their sixth game in eight tries, the 49ers put

Hidden Agenda

The 49ers travel to St. Louis this weekend for what might be the last time, if rumors of the Rams moving to Los Angeles prove accurate. The Rams are in second place in the NFC West at 3-3. That’s right

Rams 13, 49ers 10

What a pathetic game. If Charles Haley was still on the team, he’d have torn up that brand new, state-of-the-art, comfy ass locker room in Santa Clara after this one. The Rams deserved to win the game, but they didn’t

49ers 31, Rams 17

For the third straight game, the 49ers dug themselves into a 14 point hole, then methodically clawed their way out and won. This time, they were down 14-0 after the first quarter and looked to be heading into the half

Meet Me In St. Louis

Last year, the St. Louis Rams recorded 53 sacks. This year, after four games, they have ONE! Uno potahto, baby! DE Robert Quinn had 19 sacks last year. This year, ZERO! It must be that multi-million dollar contract upgrade he

49ers 23, Rams 13

In like a lion, out like a lamb. And so it came to pass, as the San Francisco 49ers sent the red hot St. Louis Rams bleating and whimpering into the sunset, 23-13. The 49er defense had yet another outstanding

Theoretical Physics

The St. Louis Rams come to town Sunday, fresh from shellacking Indianapolis 38-8 and Chicago 42-21. Goodness. These fellows don’t seem to be the same team the 49ers mauled 35-11 back in September. The biggest change has been the emergence

49ers 35, Rams 11

Midway through the 2nd quarter, the long slumbering 49er offense lurched out of bed with a 42 yard bomb from Colin Kaepernick to Anquan Boldin, followed shortly thereafter by a 20 yarder for a TD, and just that quick the

Fall From Grace

This is normally the time we disparage our upcoming opponents and scoff at any notion they might be able to beat the mighty 49ers. Two wallopings in a row kind of takes the swagger off the mighty, though. I hope

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

Claiming the West

Moving right along, the 49ers travel to St. Louis this weekend attempting to do a better job of playing the Rams than they did three weeks ago at Candlestick. Hopefully, they will not fall for a fake punt yet a

Fit to be Tied

The 49ers defense gave up 458 yards Sunday to one of the worst offenses in the league. Shameful. They deserved to lose and were lucky to get a tie. This is the fourth time in nine games that the defensive

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

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

Don’t Mention It

As previously noted, the Detroit Lions will be coming to the Bay Area this weekend for a nationally televised Sunday night butt whipping. Not to be out done by this generous gesture of voluntary humiliation, Alex Smith will provide three

Mild, Mild West

Thanks in large part to the resurgent 49ers, the NFC West lost its distinction last year as the worst Division in the NFL. Thanks in large part to the catastrophic collapse of the Colts, the AFC South assumed that dunce

Mission Accomplished

Things got a bit sweaty in the fourth quarter Sunday, but the 49ers limped out of St. Louis with a 34-27 victory, securing the number two seed in the playoffs, and the much needed week off that goes with this

One Last Hurdle

It would be ironic if the 49ers won the two hard games of this closing three game playoff push and then lost the easy game. And there are words a bit stronger and more pithy than “ironic” that could come

Mensa Members Only

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

Seeding Arrangements

Christmas has come and gone and an impoverished nation has coughed up 20 or 30 billion dollars to the giant retail corporations for another year’s worthless junk. This gigantic swindle is monitored by Homeland Security, the NSA, the FBI, and
