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

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

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

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

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

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 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

And Away We Go

The defending NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers kick off their 2020 season next Sunday afternoon at home against the division rival Arizona Cardinals. These pesky assholes gave the Niners a scare in both games last season, but clutch fourth quarter

Eras Come, Eras Go

The retirement of Joe Staley closed the books on all the players drafted from the Mike Nolan/Scot McCloughan era. In fact, only two players from those years are still on NFL rosters – Alex Smith and Frank Gore. If Michael Crabtree finds a team sometime this

Chiefs 31, 49ers 20

The 49ers’ fairy tale season came to an ignominious end Sunday night in Miami, crushed to death at the fifty yard line as Jimmy Garoppolo stood motionless, unable or unwilling to throw the ball on fourth and ten with the season

Defense, Defense, Defense!

It’s blah, blah, blah week while we wait for next Sunday’s Super Bowl game. While it’s nice that the Niners and Chiefs are doing the yapping, and not some other team from the East Coast, it’s still a lot of

49ers 37, Packers 20

The 49ers made it look easy Sunday night, pounding their way to a 27-0 halftime lead and cruising to the finish line. There wasn’t a moment of real anxiety the entire game. The most laughable and yet telling stat of
