49ers 27, Chiefs 17

The 49ers kicked off the Kyle Shanahan era with a dominating preseason win over the Kansas City Chiefs. They had 434 yards of offense and limited the Chiefs to 187. The Chiefs had only 31 yards rushing, which might be

Cardinals 33, 49ers 21

The 49ers and Cardinals spent the first half of their Thursday night game trying to cure the nations’s insomnia problem. Then, just before the first half ended, the Niners discovered they had a 7-0 lead and needed to jump start

Lame Owners’ Bowl

The Jeckyll and Hyde 49ers return home this weekend to play the Cowboys, hoping the Doctor is in and not the other guy. The howls have already begun to yank Blaine Gabbert and try one of the other bust QBs

Long Odds

Your faithful scribe has been offline for a couple of weeks. In my absence, the 49ers have apparently been flying under the radar also, content to remain inconspicuous while the Warriors, Sharks, and Giants capture the attention of the Bay

Dry Run

The 49er rookies got their first taste of life in the NFL last week, going through the rookie mini-camp. Most of them swaggered into the league full of themselves and the wonderfulness of their very presence on the planet. In

49ers 31, Rams 17

For the third straight game, the 49ers dug themselves into a 14 point hole, then methodically clawed their way out and won. This time, they were down 14-0 after the first quarter and looked to be heading into the half

Cardinals 23, 49ers 14

For the third consecutive week, the 49ers jumped out to a first half lead, then imploded in the second half. The lead was big enough in the first game to withstand the brown out, but last week and this week,

49ers 28, Cowboys 17

The San Francisco 49ers bullied their way to a 28-3 halftime lead over the inept Dallas Cowboys, then spent the second half running out the clock, instead of running up the score. How polite. Along the way, Frank Gore went

49ers 34, Falcons 24

The 49ers closed down Candlestick in epic fashion Monday night, parlaying the worst defensive outing of the year into a nail-biting, season on the brink, game ending moment, and then watching Navorro Bowman save the day with a legendary 89

49ers 34, Texans 3

Houston quarterback Matt Schaub led the 49ers to a 34-3 trouncing of his very own self Sunday night, throwing three interceptions, one of which was a record setting fourth straight game with a pick six. CB Tramaine Brock was the

Dubious Assessments

The top story of Training Camp so far has been injuries. Let’s hope this is just an early season rash, and not a season long epidemic. The wide receivers have been hardest hit, with six of them standing on the

Lip O Suck Shun

Easter has come and gone, and those of you who attempt to give devout behavior at least a smidgeon of your attention can now ease back into your wicked and sinful ways. Those of you who are devoutless devotees can

Tampering Week

The blossoms are on the trees these days, coloring up the bleak winter view, and attracting the sleek black crows to the nests of robins where they can eagerly gobble up the little robinettes, ending their poor little lives before

Wake Me When The Game Begins

The game cannot come soon enough. 100 mouths, 2,000 microphones, and still 5,000 game analyses to go before the kickoff. I put my head in the sand yesterday, but it didn’t work. There were two ostriches down there talking about

Mile High Meh

The third preseason game against Denver was nothing to write home about. But, nobody writes home about practice games anyway. The game was nationally televised, with FOX’s number one broadcasting team on hand, and Denver used the opportunity to show

We’re Almost There

Three days till the 49ers take the field. About the amount of time it takes to detox, for you .25 BAC fellows. You .45 BACers are probably on your way to the morgue and are no longer interested in the

Draft Daze 2012

The 2012 Draft is finally here! At last. My mock hath runneth over. So far, I’ve seen predictions the 49ers will trade up, trade back, or select Stephen Hill, Rueben Randle, Kendall Wright, Coby Fleener, Amini Silatolu, Kevin Zeitler, Peter

Comings and Goings

The 2012 Free Agency period roared into action Tuesday afternoon, as it usually does. What was not usual was the 49ers being among the early roarers. Last year, they waited till all the roaring had subsided before picking through the

Hangin’ Round the Ink Well

Ink flowing is not normally as fascinating to observe as is paint drying, grass growing, or televised Combine events, but this could change in the next two weeks. The 49ers have until March 13th to re-sign currently held players or

Spine Bottom Roulette

The 49ers’ Training Camp 2011 ended Thursday, and the players broke camp by checking out of their hotel rooms, I guess, because they don’t go anywhere for camp any more. With the new CBA banning two-a-days, you can’t call these

Big Easy Wasn’t

The 49ers will not have a perfect preseason record this year. That’s good. However, they certainly didn’t need to be so emphatic about getting beat. Most of the blame for this ignominious debut can be placed at the feet of

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
