Wembley Walk Through

The 49ers mid-season excursion to London will be topped off this Sunday by a demonstration of American style football. The Jacksonville Jaguars have graciously agreed to attend the game and be used as fodder for this demo. Afterwards, the Brits

Trading Places

20-16, 24-9, 27-6, 38-7. Those are the scores of the past four Cardinals/49ers games — all San Francisco victories. The first one anyway. The last three were more like stompings. Is there likely to be a reversal of Arizona fortunes

Impure Thoughts

The 49ers have not compiled a 4-1 record to start a season since 2002. It took three straight wins to compile that 2002 record and it will take the same to achieve it now. 2002 was the last year the

The Jury Is Still Out

Sunday’s 49ers’ win against the defending NFC West champion Seattle Seahawks produced more relief than exuberance. I even had to spruce up the vanquished opponent’s resume to lend some weight to the accomplishment. Most fans felt we should win this

Naming Rights

Michael Crabtree weighed in decisively and affirmatively on the UQB issue Monday, refusing to be nudged into supplanting the “U” with an “N(ame)”. You can hardly fault the guy, given his brief history in 49er land. In his first year,

Personna Non Grata

Jim Harbaugh inherited a team with only one quarterback signed for the 2011 season — David Carr. Harbaugh had no use for Carr and has barely even mentioned him. And no one has faulted his judgment on this non-stated thumbs

The Man Who Never Was

As March 4th looms in the not so distant future, it’s arrival delayed only by the inexorable empty days of February, an inconceivable notion is rising to the surface: the 49ers QB for the 2011 season might very well be

The Superless Bowl

When the Packers settled for a field goal and a six point lead on their final drive in yesterday’s Super Bowl, I thought they had just lost the game. There were two minutes and seven seconds left. Plenty of time

Viewer Discretion Advised

Jim Harbaugh and Jed York both left the door open last week for Alex Smith to return to the club this coming year. It’s possible they did this to ensure that the 49er blog world has something to argue about

Vacancy. Inquire Within.

Trent Baalke mentioned yesterday that next year’s 49er QB is not currently on the roster. Nate Davis took the blubber he acquired while rededicating himself to his craft this past season up to Seattle where it will help keep him

Happy Meals Monday

Welcome to year one, day four of the newly relevant San Francisco 49ers. This new wardrobe will take some getting used to. Jim Harbaugh may or may not turn out to be a long tenured, successful Head Coach for the

Hopes, Hype, and Horseshit

The 49ers certainly hogged the news feeds Wednesday with their much publicized and speculated upon search for a GM. Bill Parcells and Michael Lombardi bubbled up to the surface and quickly floated downstream. No word yet whether Bill Walsh’s corpse

Today, the world is one minute brighter than yesterday. This trend will continue for the next 183 days, give or take a few hours. A cheery thought, unless you are a vampire. This may not seem like it has anything

40?!?! WTF!!

I don’t think I’ve ever heard a QB booed on the first play of the game. And the second. That’s some serious and immediate eff you feedback. The third play was a 22 yard completion to Vernon Davis and that

The Fat Lady Is Dressed

The Seattle Seahawks ruined the end of the 49ers 2009 season and the beginning of this 2010 season. Sunday, they have a chance to ruin the end of the 2010 season, as well. That would be three straight ruinations and

The Liberal Arts Game

It may seem like the season has been on the line for the past twelve games for the 49ers, but next Sunday it really, really is! A loss to the Seattle Seahawks would mathematically eliminate the team from the playoffs.

Cheesed Off

Eric Davis and Matt Maiocco, 49er Insiders deluxe, thought the 49ers would be competitive in Green Bay, maybe even win the game. The Outsider and its citizens predicted the team would get squashed. Who knows football? WE DO! What were

Don’t Even Think About It

When the season began, Monday night’s game against the Cardinals and the season ending game against the same team were thought to be the crucial games that would decide the NFC West championship. As it is, they are only crucial

Turkey Season

One by one, the 2010 season is ending around the NFL. Buffalo and Carolina cashed out early. Then came Dallas, Detroit, Cleveland, and Cincinnati. Minnesota, Denver, and Houston all sputtered to the side of the road and coughed out this

No There Here

As the sun sets slowly on the eighth consecutive failed 49ers season, it’s fair to ask: Do I really want to spend the remaining years of my life being a Cubs type fan? Is it healthy to learn to love
