49ers Go All In

John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan certainly put some pop into the normally ho-hum activities of the second week of Free Agency last week, trading two number one picks and a third to move up from the number 12 pick to the

Free Agency Scramble

The first week of Free Agency is in the books and lots of players now have new addresses for the 2021 season. The 49ers essentially spent the week re-signing their own free agents instead of bringing in new guys. The

“Show Me The Money” Week

It’s been a long two and a half months since the 49ers’ season ended with a desultory loss to the Seahawks on January 3rd. But we’re finally close to turning the page on a new year. The shrunken salary cap

Ixnay on Atsonway

We’re heading into year 5 of the Lynch/Shanahan era. So far, they’ve managed to give us three last place teams and one SB team. And the weird “achievement” of  going “worse to first” followed by “first to worst.” There’s a

Rumor Mill Times

This will be a bad year to be a free agent. With the shrinking of the salary cap, free agents will be joined in the unemployed section by a lot of veterans cut by teams to fit under the cap.

Ice Bowl Weekend

The NFL season has continued without us these past two weekends. A common occurrence during the ill-fated ownership years of the York family. The current regime has been to the playoffs once in four years, and the Harbaugh regime went

Seahawks 26, 49ers 23

The 49ers ended their 2020 season the same way they ended their 2019 season. They gave up three TDs in the 4th quarter to blow a ten point lead and lose a game they had handily controlled for three quarters.

49ers 20, Cardinals 12

The 49ers finally found a way to corral Kyler Murray and the Cardinals on Saturday in Arizona. All it took was losing their star pass rusher and three quarters of the secondary, then starting their 3rd string QB and RB while

Cowboys 41, 49ers 33

The 49ers were officially eliminated from the 2020 playoffs Sunday in Arizona. Nick Mullens played Santa Claus to the Dallas Cowboys, gifting them with two interceptions and a fumble for 17 points. Richie James kicked in a fumble, too, for another 7

Bills 34, 49ers 24

The 49ers’ playoff hopes went from maybe to the edge of fuggedabouddit Monday night in Arizona. This game seemed winnable going in if Nick Mullens didn’t make too many mistakes and the defense shut down the Bills. Of the two “ifs”

49ers 23, Rams 20

Nick Mullens led two fourth quarter drives that gave the 49ers a come from behind victory against the Rams on Sunday afternoon. The win kept the Niners’ thin playoff hopes alive and knocked the Rams out of first place in

View From The Bottom

Six games left in this sad, lost season. Without all the injuries, this team would be sitting at 7-3 or better now, instead of 4-6. And every team in the NFC is thrilled and praying they don’t get healthy and

Saints 27, 49ers 13

I suppose, if we’re groveling for positives, this game could be viewed as a moral victory. After all, a week ago the Saints clobbered the Bucs  38-3. But that would overlook the reality that the team gave this game away

Packers 34, 49ers 17

The 49ers got jobbed last Thursday night. The game should have been rescheduled, like games earlier in the season were, but the NFL didn’t want to lose the Thursday TV revenue. It probably didn’t matter since the team was down

Seahawks 37, 49ers 27

The 49ers were outplayed and outcoached in Seattle Sunday afternoon. But that didn’t stop them from racking up more injuries, which has become the lone consistency the team has displayed this year. Facing the worst defense in the league, the

49ers 33, Patriots 6

49ers 2, Gauntlet 0. Wins are always enjoyable, but demolishing the Patriots in their own park is about as sweet as it gets. This was a thorough butt-kicker special, from beginning to end. Can’t say I saw this one coming.

49ers 24, Rams 16

The grave diggers had to holster their shovels Sunday night in Santa Clara, as the 49ers limped out of the morgue to live another week. Looking a lot like last year’s team, the defense shut down the high powered Rams

Dolphins 43, 49ers 17

So, about next year … The only thing that could save this year is if COVID went crazy and they had to scrap the season. The Niners got trashed so bad it looked like the 2016 team out there on

Eagles 25, 49ers 20

The 49ers lost to  the Eagles 25-20 Sunday night, but a more accurate portrayal of the score would be 49ers 20, Eagles 8, Nick Mullens -17. And just like that, the bandwagons of the 49ers and of Mullens emptied out into

49ers 36, Giants 9

The stock price of Nick Mullens, Inc surged upward Sunday in New Jersey as he directed a thorough and relentless butt-kicking of the hapless New York Giants. Mullens completed 25 of 36 to ten different receivers while racking up 343  yards.

49ers 31, Jets 13

The 49ers got back on track by drubbing the hapless Jets Sunday, but they likely lost any chance at being a SB contender this year when all-world DE Nick Bosa tore his ACL and will be out for the season. The

Cardinals 24, 49ers 20

The 49ers tried to play a 21st century football game with no wide receivers. Fail. Kendrick Bourne: 2 receptions. Dante Pettis: zero. AZ secondary: smoke break. DC Robert Saleh had an entire offseason to figure out how to defend against squirt-ball QBs. Fail. Kyler
