Seahawks 28, 49ers 21

As the sun sets on the brief Jimmy Garoppolo era and we begin the Trey Lance regime, I’ve decided to throw in the towel on my weekly commentary and just enjoy the games without needing to do a write-up afterward. As most

Packers 30, 49ers 28

Nice try, but no ceegar. Before the season started, the secondary was clearly viewed as the weak link on the team. It was hoped that the front seven would be overpowering enough to cover up for this deficiency. And that

49ers 17, Eagles 11

Sunday’s game was as ugly as a Mike Singletary game plan. In fact, that’s exactly what it was. Kudos to Kyle Shanahan for eschewing his ego and going with the smash-mouth approach. The 49ers had  a superior team and let the full

49ers 41, Lions 33

That was a lot of fun, until it wasn’t. Tough to score 41 points and be the least impressive NFC West win of the day. The Rams, Seahawks, and Cardinals all routed some very good teams. The 49ers squeaked by

49ers 34, Raiders 10

For a preseason game, Sunday’s trashing of the Raiders was quite entertaining. It’s always fun to crush the Raiders, of course, but using a shuttle system at QB as misdirection while running the ball down their throats was a Kyle Shanahan

Chiefs 19, 49ers 16

NFL Football returned to our domiciles last week and was eagerly devoured by hungry fans everywhere. Normally, watching second and third stringers scrimmage against each other is not must see TV, but 49er fans were particularly intrigued with seeing number

2021 49ers Are Open For Business

The offseason wheezes out the door tomorrow, taking its annual break from boring us all to death. So long, Nothingburger, see you in February. The first order of business after the players check in will be to find out who’s

Plenty of Nothing

At this point in the offseason, “no news is good news” rules the day. It means no 49er has broken any of his precious bodily parts or been arrested for some type of bad behavior. There’s been quite a bit

2021 Organized Team Activities

The OTAs are underway, with about 90% attendance from the players who gave lip service to the NFLPA’s edict to boycott these “voluntary” work outs but clearly value their jobs over their union solidarity. Wise choice, lads. After all, there’s

It Was a Good Draft – Unless It Wasn’t

After a month of letting the media and NFL “expert insiders” with “highly reliable sources” convince all of us that the 49ers were going to select Mac Jones as their QB of the future, Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch saved us all from befuddled

And the Winner Is …

Another four days until we find out which QB the 49ers will be selecting with the number three pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. It’s been a month since the team traded a bucketful to move up to that number

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
