Lap Falling Syndrome

Well, it’s almost here. After the Super Bowl and the Presidential Election, the NFL Draft is probably the third most overhyped event in America. Apparently, the 49ers are going to take a linebacker, a cornerback, an offensive lineman, or trade

49ers 26, Texans 16

It took 45 games, but the post-Harbaugh 49ers have finally won two consecutive games! It’s probably no coincidence that both winning efforts were conducted by newly acquired QB Jimmy Garoppolo, who appears to have wisely used his three and a

It’s a Mad World

So, in with Jimmy Garappolo, out with Kirk Cousins. And, for his 0-6 efforts, Brian Hoyer goes from worst to first. Reminds me of David Baas, the O-line guy who did squat here for five years, then went to the

Trivial Pursuits

The AFC SB contestants are a never ending parade of Peyton Manning teams, Tom Brady, and Ben Roethlisberger, with a one year fluke appearances by Joe Flacco, Trent Dilfer, and Rich Gannon. Going on 16 years now. Just those 3.03

As the QB Turns

The Super Bowl next Sunday will be a win-lose proposition for 49er fans. One of these despised franchises will have to lose the game, but one of them will have to win it, too. We’ll either see Bill Belichick and

Fools Rush In

The 49ers are in a pickle. Or at least us fans are. The team is run by an insecure boy owner trying to fill his Uncle Eddie’s shoes and an insecure GM trying to prove he deserves the job for

19th Hole

I’ve been coping with the desultory end to the 2013 season by gorging on a marathon session of the TV drama Dexter on Netflix. Watching our serial killer hero, the “Bay Harbor Butcher,” stab and dismember one bad guy after

They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?

Glad that’s over with. 49er fans have been correct: the football season ended two weeks ago, when the two best teams in the NFL went 15 rounds in Seattle. This game was a true mismatched clunker. Before the game, Joe

Quarterfinal Weekend

Cam Newton vs Colin Kaepernick. Tom Brady vs Andrew Luck. Peyton Manning vs Phillip Rivers. Russell Wilson vs Drew Brees. Wow. The Divisional Quarterfinals looks like a Home Run Derby of QBs. The AFC matchups don’t figure to lend much

On The Road

Welcome to 2014, fellow Outsiders! We are now in the sudden death time of year. Each 49er game might be the last we see them until next August. Scary. It’s also 0-0 time and any team can catch fire, luck,

Gaggers Weekend

No matter how boring the playoff races seem at the beginning of December, somehow the final two or three weekends come out dripping with excitement. Because weird shit happens. Every year. Last week, the Denver Mannings led off by gagging

49ers 34, Packers 28

Whew! The 49ers beat the Packers for the third straight time Sunday, 34-28. It was a seesaw battle between two prolific passing attacks that wasn’t decided until late in the fourth quarter when the Niners scored to take the lead

All Wanking Spanners to the Plow

We’re almost there. Eight days until Training Camp starts and the 2013 season opens for business. If memory serves, the rookies report in first, followed a couple days later by the veterans. The most anticipated scene of the first day

Open Wide

The 49ers will be having OTAs this week, Tuesday through Thursday. It’s my duty to report these things, even if all of you could care less. There was a time these spring practices were informative, even festive. But those days

Baalkan War Chest

The 49ers have entered the Patriots Zone, blogospherically speaking. Contending team, no raging controversies, more or less patiently waiting for another season of excellence to eventually come along. I visited some of their blog sites recently and one had ten

The Coma Before the Storm

For the past eighteen years, the last two weeks in January have been reserved for denial, anger, depression, avoidance — all the classic pysche tricks to deal with another disappointing end to the 49ers’ season. I was still a young

Heart of a Champion

Before the NFC Championship Game, former San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo referred to the upcoming game as “just a warm up.” As it turned out, he was eerily correct. The 49ers took a quarter to warm up, while the

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

The End Is Near

With the victory over the Patriots, the 49ers clinched a playoff spot. They also gave the middle finger to the “regression to norm” stat geeks who solemnly pronounced last summer the Niners 2012 record would only be 9-7. With two

A Tale of Two Halfs

The San Francisco 49ers stomped the New England Patriots in the first half like they have not been stomped in ten years or so. The Patriots stomped the 49ers in the second half like they have not been stomped since

Face Off in Foxborough

The last time the 49ers played the Patriots was 2008, a 30-21 loss at Candlestick. Matt Cassel was the Patriot QB and Mike Nolan was the 49er Head Coach. Nolan was fired two games later and Cassel is now sucking

Midterm Reflections

At the halfway point of the 2012 season, the NFC playoff picture seems pretty clear. For the teams that will be the true SB contenders this year. There will be a scrubeenie entrant, that takes its fans down to the
