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 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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

Bubble World Blabber

Most of the news lately has been which players are opting out of the 2020 season. That all ended, presumably, at last Thursday’s 1pm deadline. At this point, you’re either in or you’re out. Sixty-seven players took the out. For

Seven Days to the Clock

One of the enduring screen shots of the Super Bowl was John Lynch frantically signaling for a Time Out from his sky box while down on the field Kyle Shanahan calmly let the clock run out shortly before halftime, even though there

Thumb Twiddling

Looks like we’ll be getting a 17 game season in a year or two, with an extra wild card team in each conference. And only the top seeded team in each conference will get a BYE week in the playoffs.

Perspective Detective

Last week was hard to digest. Tough for us 49er fans, and no doubt tougher for the team and coaches. But they get paid for their grief, and we don’t. Kyle Shanahan has been roasted a bit, while Andy Reid has

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

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

Let’s Go Get A Ring

Okay, here we are again. Back in the playoffs, number one seed, and as good a chance as any team to advance to the Super Bowl. Not exactly what any of us envisioned at the start of the season, but

Falcons 29, 49ers 22

The 49ers backed into the playoffs Sunday, when the Rams got clobbered by Dallas. That they lost to the Falcons was disappointing, but in the end makes little difference in the standings. They still need to win the next two

49ers 36, Cardinals 26

The 49ers squeezed out a win Sunday afternoon against the Cardinals, and guaranteed their first winning season since 2013. Early in the game, however, it looked more like they would be the first team in NFL history to win its

Rocky Road Ahead

Half the 49er season is already over. Sigh. If only the offseason moved this quickly. At this time of the year, we’re normally finishing the autopsy and preparing a eulogy, so this is uncharted territory. A perfect half season. Zounds!

49ers 9, Washington 0

As noted by our astute commenters, sometimes ugly can be beautiful, and this game truly was. Probably the most gorgeous ugly victory of the year. Washington conjured up a squall for this game, which tilted the odds their way since

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.
