View From the Bottom

The 2017 NFL season is slipping by quickly and we’re down to our last six games. The 49ers have improved statistically from last year’s team, with the offense improving from somewhere near dead last to 23rd in the league. The

Coming Attractions

The 49ers have not had a franchise QB since Steve Young was knocked out of the NFL by Aeneas Williams at Arizona in 1999. They won’t have one this year, either. Making it 19 straight years with a deficiency at

Perception Vs Reality

The 49ers have finally introduced their new coaching staff. Most of them can now disappear into the fine print of the team’s hierarchy, until such time as we need to haul them out to blame them for one thing or

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 42, Jaguars 10

The San Francisco 49ers guffawed their way past the Jacksonville Jaguars 42-10 Sunday night at Wembley Stadium in London. They marched down the field for TDs the first four times they had the ball, then, noticing it was almost halftime,

Break On Through

Here we are again. One year later and one game away from a trip to the Super Bowl. The 49ers must prevail Sunday or the world will surely end. Once again Jim Harbaugh and John Harbaugh both have their teams

Legacy Lunacy

The 49ers have unleashed a devastating “wildcat” option to their potent running game this season, featuring backup QB Colin Kaepernick, who has thrived in the role. The result? A new wave of Alex Smith bashing!? If one hadn’t been around

The NFL earth shifted on its axis Sunday afternoon. The consensus best team in the NFC was beaten at home 30-22 by the consensus last year was a fluke team. The San Francisco 49ers beat Green Bay in every phase

Leftover Stew

Free Agency 2012 burned up its drama in about ten days. By Friday of last week, the top headliners had all been signed. Over the next few weeks, the off Broadway guys will be trickling in hither and yon throughout

Core de Corps

Patience holds little value in the blog world, but it is a major contributor to assembling a good team. This past year, we saw Tarell Brown emerge as a solid CB, Dashon Goldson go to the Pro Bowl, Adam Snyder

Prove It Or Lose It

The last time the 49ers were in an NFC Title Game was 1998, against the Atlanta Falcons. The previous week, the team had finally beaten their nemesis, Brett Farve and the Packers, and hopes were high that another SB title

Any Which Way But Lose

It’s Wednesday, which signals an end to the gloating and basking period and a return to fretting over the next game, which just happens to be the NFC Championship Game. One win away from a trip to Super Bowl number

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

Forward to the Past

We now interrupt this scintillating political debate (cough, cough) to bring you some stale football news, which is what we normally do here, even though it’s obviously a tougher sell than politics. All you need for a rip snorting marathon

Dances with Luck

Eddie Debartolo is a revered figure in 49er land, and rightly so. It was during his tenure, that the 49ers won five Super Bowls and were an NFL powerhouse for 20+ years. However, he was, in the long run, a
