Lunch Lips

Trent Baalke hit the lotto two years in a row with his third round picks — NaVorro Bowman and Chris Culliver. Neither pick drew oohs and aahs at the time. More like who’s and wha’s. Bowman stepped in for Takeo

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

Champagne Brunch

Back to work week for our intrepid 49er lads who tasted defeat last Thursday for the first time since mid-September. Even in defeat, however, Dame Fortune remained kind to the team by sneaking into Seattle on Sunday and inducing the

Miked Up

Next Sunday the 49ers have a game against the Washington Inappropriately Nameds, who practice in Virginia and play in Maryland and never set foot in Washington. A true D.C. tradition. The Washingtons are coached by The Ultimate Leader, Mike “Bug

Flavor of the Month

Last call for vanilla. We hope. Is anybody going to watch this game? Maybe the first quarter or half. The blackout was lifted in San Diego, so the stadium is going to be filled to the brim with invisible patrons.

FA Brake Down

There’s been a lot of early season jitters as the blogorama shakes off the rust of the long offseason and gets its tonsils game ready. But one week into the new season, the collective nerves seem to be settling down

Agendas. Damned Agendas.

We began the 2011 offseason waiting for a new CBA to be signed. That wait was in vain. We now await the light bulbs flickering on in the concussed brains of the NFL rank and file players. A vain wait

Hypothetical Hypnosis

On the plus side of no football activity this off season, the 49ers will likely be able to retain the services of Manny Lawson, Dashon Goldson, David Baas, and maybe even Abrayo Franklin or Takeo Spikes, if the team still

Estate Planning

As I mentioned last Friday, the 49ers have assured us they have a Plan A, B, and C for this off season of uncertainty. I may have left out D and E, but if we get that far into the

Holy Gulparoni!

Has an NFL franchise ever won a division title on the last day of the season, playing at home in front of a crowd wearing paper bags over their heads? With Sunday’s splutz out by both the Seattle Seahawks and

The Fat Lady Is Dressed

The Seattle Seahawks ruined the end of the 49ers 2009 season and the beginning of this 2010 season. Sunday, they have a chance to ruin the end of the 2010 season, as well. That would be three straight ruinations and

Enjoy the Moment

The 49ers win over the Raiders did not impress the blogosphere all that much, nor did it provoke any playoff fever epidemics. But there was no denying the immense sigh of relief that wafted up through cyberspace. I will not

Niners Win Suck Bowl

When it comes to sucking, the Raiders are still the champs. For three quarters Sunday, the 49ers gave it their best egg layers effort, but the Raiders hung in there and out laid them down the stretch, falling behind and

The Missing Ornament

I had a dream last night that the 49ers beat the Eagles 59-0. In the dream, as the team lined up for its first offensive play of the game, one by one little light bulbs popped up over the helmets

The Fateful Fifty-Three

Over the weekend, somewhere in the vicinity of 700 NFL players were laid off. 256 of them got hired back at much lower wages to fill out the practice squads around the league. All of these PS fellows are young

49ers Win Scrub Bowl 17-14

The 49ers closed out the 2010 Exhibition Season by beating the Chargers 17-14 in a largely empty Candlestick Park stadium. There were no initial reports of any serious injuries. Whew!!! The emergence of Phillip Adams has got to be the

49ers 15, Farvettes 10

While watching the Bret Farve telethon Sunday night, I was surprised to see a 49er exhibition game spliced into the fawning endeavor. How annoying. What was NBC thinking? There must have been at least a hundred more facial expressions that

The Wheeze Out Factor

Every year, it seems, a guy nobody is thinking about decides to get old in a hurry or just suddenly run out of gas, throwing a serious owie into the outlook for the team’s success. Injuries can achieve the same

Squinting at the Horizon V

The final Squint in our week long series focuses on the Linebackers. The Dline gets no peeps in this series because nothing much has changed there from last year’s lineup. Ricky Jean Francois is working at the nose trying to
