Scoreboard Watchers Weekend

Last week of the 2013 season. Green Bay at Chicago for the NFC North title. Philadelphia at Dallas for the NFC East title. Saints are win-and-in versus Tampa Bay. Carolina and Seattle could both win their divisions and get the

Minicamp Munchies

The first day of minicamp produced a torrent of news that didn’t abate until the entire bottom of a thimble had been dampened. AJ Jenkins caught a difficult pass and Scott Tolzien tossed two to four interceptions, depending which beat

The Bay Area is having a pretty good run right now. The Giants are World Champs, the 49ers came up five yards short of the title, the Warriors are amazing everyone with their spirited playoff run, the Sharks just might

Pancaked!

Ouch. The 49ers put a serious man hurt on the New York Jets Sunday, steamrolling over them 34-0. It looked like a throwback game to the 1930’s as nine different runners combined for 245 in your face yards on 44

They Might Not Be Giants

The refs we used to hate are back. Are the 49ers we used to love back, too? The 2012 season hits the quarter pole this weekend and a 49er victory will give them the same record as they had last

Easy Peasey

Friday’s opening exhibition game was quite an improvement over last year’s opening debacle in New Orleans. I wish it meant something more significant than polite applause. Still, it was football and we now get to see it every week till

Was It Good For You, Too?

Which one is the loser? It was exciting subbing in for New York this past two weeks, but a little exhausting. Thankfully, the Jets have reclaimed the news feed throne by trading for Tim Tebow, bringing it all back home

The Spin Doctor Is In

Now that the 49ers’ Front Office has bungled away the feel good atmosphere of the hugely successful 2011 season and reminded us of the ten years of ownership ineptitude which preceded it, everyone can get back to business. And thank

The Betting Window Is Open

[UPDATE: Monday evening the 49ers signed Randy Moss to a one year contract. See the comment section for the various thoughts of Outsider readers regarding this unexpected development.] Tuesday at 4:00pm EDT, the 2012 Free Agency gates swing open, freeing

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

Dancing With The Stars

This year’s NFC final four is a true national tournament. We’ve got the Giants representing the East, Green Bay the North, New Orleans the South, and San Francisco the West. Groovy. A perfect symmetry. And late Saturday afternoon, the 49er

The Crow Cafe

Okay, back to reality. There’s eleven more games to play this season. The injury to Josh Morgan is a pointed reminder how quickly sweet can turn sour in the NFL. Still, looking at the QB rankings after five weeks of

No There Here

As the sun sets slowly on the eighth consecutive failed 49ers season, it’s fair to ask: Do I really want to spend the remaining years of my life being a Cubs type fan? Is it healthy to learn to love

Hair Lips

Michael Vick’s mega-show on Monday night has been the talk of the league this week. Tom Brady admits to being wowed. Tom Coughlin says it makes him sick. His Giants team is openly raving about Vick, even though they will

2010 Draft Redux V

Instead of continuing a choice by choice recap of the rest of the 2010 NFL Draft, I altered my mind (through years of practice and a little help from my friends) and thought I’d just do some highlights of the
