Save the Drama:TITIK

Mercy, it’s been a long season.  It’s been painful.  It’s been exhausting.  It’s been unlike anything that I can remember. And that’s just from a fan’s perspective.  I can’t even imagine what it’s been like for those involved directly with the team.  Let’s take another look at some things I think I know. The Drama […]

Redskins Recap: Things I Think I Know

Same song, slightly different verse.  I do not know how the 49ers keep on doing it.  But, they win.  And, that’s all we, as fans, can ask for.  The San Francisc0 49ers offense won’t provide much more than that.  Let’s review with some things I think I know. My back hurts. At least, that’s what […]

Chiefs Recap: Thinks I Think I Know

Nobody is making headlines for getting in trouble with the law.  The 49ers have won back to back games.  But, Harbaugh and Co. are making news for all the wrong reasons.   Will he stay or will he go?  It seems to be the question of the season just past the quarter pole.  But on this […]

49ers Down Dallas, 28-17

49ers fall 23-3. Who cares?

If you’re at all like me, you don’t put too much stock in the preseason. The records are meaningless. More often than not, guys who won’t play when it does matter grace the field more than the regular season starters. There are a ton of kinks still to be worked out. Such was the case […]

Train(er) Camp

It’s not supposed to be this way. The term training camp is intended for those 90+ athletes pursuing a career within the NFL.  For the San Francisco 49ers team as a whole, the trainers have gotten plenty of training themselves.

It’s “Forty-Niner” Frank Gore

Joe Montana didn’t do it.  Jerry Rice didn’t either.  Neither did Ronnie Lott, or Roger Craig, or even Tom Rathman.   Even the greatest of the great San Francisc0 49ers players don’t always finish their careers where we think they should.  It’s a pattern that historically, isn’t all that uncommon. As another great enters the final […]
