Cowboys Capitulation: Things I Think I Know

The result of Sunday’s Fox Game of the Week was an unexpected result for some prognosticators across the country.  For others, it was the result we expected.  Jim Harbaugh and the Machine pushed forward with business as usual.  So, let’s do the same and cover some things (I think) I know. The Preseason….what’s that? It […]

49ers Down Dallas, 28-17

It was a solid start to the Quest for Six. Colin Kaepernick looked terrific. Carlos Hyde was a beast. Vernon Davis can still find the end zone. Anquan Boldin effortlessly converted first downs. Everything was clicking as the San Francisco 49ers defeated the Dallas Cowboys, 28-17, opening their season with a road win before the debut […]

Rivalry Rekindled

Sunday will not only mark the start of the 2014 regular season for both teams, but the 34th meeting between the two storied NFC franchises. […]

Sacked

For Aldon Smith, this one hurts. For the 49er Faithful, this one hurts. For the team, this one hurts. One of the preeminent pass rushers in the league is gone until Week 11 against the New York Giants. Smith, so gifted on the field, but so troubled away from it, is now paying a steep […]

Waiting to Click

It’s a double edged sword.   Pundits and talking heads consistently talk about the limited value provided by preseason NFL football.  It’s an evaluation period for most.  Rosters consisting of somewhere around 90 individuals will be trimmed to 63 (practice squad included) when the season starts.  For those guaranteed roster spots, it’s a time period to […]

49ers vs Charges – What To Watch For

The San Francisco 49ers are entering their third preseason game having only scored 3 points total in the previous two preseason games. Not a big deal. The 49ers are the only team (through preseason week 2) to not score a touchdown. I know it’s only preseason, and it shouldn’t be a big deal, but the […]

49ers flop in first game at Levi’s Stadium

As I’ve previously written, don’t worry too much about wins and losses in the preseason. The results and records have no bearing on the regular campaign, but getting blown out in the first game at your new stadium is not how you want to start. Peyton Manning was dominant as the Denver Broncos steamrolled the […]

NFL: San Francisco 49ers-OTA

Kap’s Backup

The San Francisc0 49ers first preseason game has come and gone.  There weren’t a whole lot of certainties divulged in a 20 point loss to the Baltimore Ravens to begin a series of four “practice” games. One certainty that became fairly clear is the backup quarterback position being unsettled.  Fairly or unfairly, I took to […]
