49ers 17, Cowboys 9

18 for 216 yards. Not bad, if you’re a QB. But we’re not talking about yards gained. No, those were yards  lost – to penalties. Yes, the 49ers were in midseason form Saturday night, gaining 339 forwardly and 216 backwardly.

Bring Your Gum Wads

The Chicago Bears come to town this weekend, fresh from clinching the NFC North division. They would be more tempted to mail this game in if not for the falling fortunes of the Rams which have suddenly made the last

There’s a Bar Up Above

Five more weeks of the offseason before we begin to see if Kyle Shanahan can emulate Jim Harbaugh by taking a 6-10 team and turning it into a 13-3 playoff team. Some might say that’s not a fair contest, since

Fox Hunt

The 49ers travel to Chicago this weekend to resume their quest for a perfect 0-8 road record for 2015. They’re at 0-5 now, so the tension for perfection is building with each failed effort to succeed. Or is it each

Dickhead Owners Game

The Cowboys come to town Sunday for exhibition game number two. This should provide an excellent opportunity for Jed York to get some tips from Jerry Jones on the fine art of ego-driven self-destruction. The first string offense only played

Too Much Noise

There’s been a lot of pixels devoted to unraveling the hatchet job Jed York did to Jim Harbaugh, but York also undermined GM Trent Baalke, by torpedoing his choice for the 49ers’ new HC. And some people wonder why there’s

Blazing Saddles

This coming Thursday, the 49ers will be required by league rules to open up a practice for media scrutiny. It’s not known whether the new coaching staff is also required to make themselves available to the media. They have been

Forward to the Past

The marketing wing at 4949 Centennial Blvd. has officially scrapped the “Quest for Six” slogan and replaced it with “Hooray, We Suck” banners for the 2015 season. Santa Clara tax dollars at work. The 49ers will be holding a rookie

The Right Stuff

The 49ers emerged from their long, grueling trek through the NFL discard landscape and on Wednesday hired the guy they intended to hire from the very beginning, the exact same method they used to hire GM Trent Baalke back in

The Waiting Game

We are waiting, we are waiting, oh yeah, oh yeah Waiting for someone to come out of somewhere We should have had a new head coach announced on Monday, but all we heard were crickets. This can only mean one

On The Clock

It’s a New Year, and the 49ers are once again facing an uncertain future. And once again the dreaded sounds of snickering are echoing throughout the league. Sigh. It’ll be a week or two before the front office clowns trot

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

49er Follies

Normally, with your team out of the playoff race, it would be a good time to look at some of the rookies and backups. Unfortunately, those are the guys who have already been playing for the 49ers lately. It seems

Raiders 24, 49ers 13

The 49er season, and probably the Jim Harbaugh era, came to an ignominious end Sunday in Oakland. The team is in such disarray and so riddled with injuries that it’s difficult to see them winning another game this season. The

Bronc Skinner Blues

The 49ers have given the Eagles their only defeat this year, as well as the Cowboys their sole blemish. If this Sunday night’s opponent, the Broncos, hadn’t already lost a game, I’d feel confident the Niners would whip them. But

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

Go Forth and Be Righteous

Football violence has taken a back seat to Domestic Violence this past week, proving once again that the public has an enormous appetite for violence. They not only eat up the violence itself, but take especial delight in finding culprits

Reading the Fine Print

I guess Colin Kaepernick is going to be the 49er QB for awhile. His parents are probably out mansion hunting as we very speak. That’s our boy! And let’s hear it for franchise MVP Paraag Marthe, who once again delivered

New Blood

When the 49ers start the 2014 season, almost half the defense will be different than the one that started the 2013 season. DC Vic Fangio will have his biggest challenge since taking over the job in 2011. The team will

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

The Juice Bar

The offseason has been kind of a clunker so far. No oomph, no passion, no blockbuster deals — not much more than recycling some warm bodies. And coping with Super Bowl Loser syndrome. The Draft is two weeks off. Maybe

The Suck Pit

Embarking on Day Three of Coping With Tragedy. Shock, denial, anger, grief, acceptance. Blah, blah, blah. This sucks. Holy banana peels! How could we not get that ball into the stinking end zone? Then again, why not? We beat ourselves
