Wildcard Weekend

The 49ers successfully dodged a bullet this week by giving the players a few days off and Aldon Smith did not make the news for the wrong reasons. The team went back to work Thursday and began getting ready for

OTA Week III of IV

The boys will be back at it again today, whatever “it” is. A closely guarded state secret, mostly. Then again, what’s there to reveal about practices? They got the blocking sleds, the little pads and cones that guys do the

It’s a Mad, Mad Whirl

The 2011 NFL season finally lost all its asterisks Thursday and the new league year is now officially underway. Miilionaires and billionaires can now mingle together in peace and harmony, as the evil lawyers have been banished from the kingdom

See The UFA, In Your Chez Buffet

As reported by ProFootballTalk Tuesday, the new CBA will allow players with four years in the league to become Unrestricted Free Agents, or UFAs for you acronym lovers. This puts Dashon Goldson, Ray McDonald, and Manny Lawson out there on

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

Horses and Dogs

The 49ers finished 3rd in the NFC West last year. This was very disheartening, if I may understate the issue. That plain statement of fact hurts worse than all the cuss words in the Urban Dictionary or Unca_Chuck’s blog that

IT Came From Outer Space

The IT factor is tossed around on the blogosphere on an almost daily basis. NFL players must possess this undefinable somethingness or they can never be considered true championship caliber HOF dudes. Alex Smith, of course, was the foremost player

Buyer’s Remorse

One more grisly week until the bye week, the only week on the schedule the 49ers are guaranteed not to lose a ball game. Does anyone even want to talk about this team any more? Shall I just close the

Trend Reversal Rehearsal

The 49ers were not expected by many to win Sunday’s game against the Falcons as soon as the schedule was released last spring. Those expectations were certainly not diminished when the team opened the season with three straight losses. A

Losses have personalities. The Seattle loss was disgusting. The Saints loss was encouraging. The Chiefs loss was shocking. This Falcons loss was just depressing. Really, really depressing … with a sprinkling of rage. The kind of loss that makes you

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

Nighty-night to the Off Season

The long off season is nearly at an end (gasp, wheeze). Before we forget about it completely, except to scour blog archives for damning rebuttals to posters that peeve us, let’s trot through it for one last recap before training

Same Old, New Old

Quite a few bloggers casually mention that this is essentially the same team as last year. Some mention this as a reason to trash the optimism of other posters, and some mention this as an aside before going on to

2010 Draft Redux VI

Continuing with our recap of the fate of the pre-draft blogosphere hotties, which seems to have cured the insomnia difficulties of this site’s readership, the Lions took local RB Jahvid Best at pick #30. Best was a small, but explosive

Seventh Round Knockout

The first of two weeks of OTAs concluded last Friday without this reporter seeing so much as one play. I did, however, get a barrage of Tweets from Maiocco, Barrows, and Barber. Lynch does not appear to have a Twitter

Squinting at the Horizon IV

The 2010 49er’s secondary will probably open the season with the same top 5 players as last year: Dashon Goldson, Michael Lewis, Nate Clements, and Shawntae Spencer as the starters, and Tarell Brown as the nickel back. Dre Bly could

Squinting at the Horizon II

Very few players reach a level of iconic stature that makes them immune from the ever poised harpoons of the blogosphere vigilantes. On a great many teams, no players occupy this exalted realm. On teams that do possess such a

Hints & Hallucinations

The first day of OTAs concluded without anyone getting broken. That was encouraging news, though a bit hampering reportage wise. Perhaps we can reach into the old noggin hole and salvage the day. Brandon Jones appeared to be third on

Touch Football Time

The NFL, with its uncanny ability to invent mumbo jumbo speak, has come up with a tortured term for this time of the year, dubbing it “Organized Team Activities” (OTAs). A true mouthful of Spam. Do they have high level

Third & One, Baby

This 2010 Draft is the most intriguing 49ers draft in many years. Three guys were drafted with the initial and specific task of converting short yardage 3rd & 4th down plays. One guy was drafted who can take the opposing
