A Season of Lows: TITIK

It wasn’t all that long ago. I understand that.  But I hold the 2011 season vividly in my mind.  I went through that whole season on pins and needles waiting for the collapse.  From a fan’s perspective, I waited.  I waited and waited some more.  There was a level of certainty within me that knew […]

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 […]

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 […]

As The World Turns

  I think Vince Lombardi adequately encapsulated what happened this past week at the San Francisco 49ers mandatory minicamp this week. Holdouts, highlights and Harbaugh, oh my! Oh, and an Eric Wright retirement. This isn’t football, this is a soap opera. If you’ve paid any attention to Niner news in the last week, you know […]

Building Through the Draft

I want to take you all back to a very dark time. The lean years. The down years. The “things can’t possibly get any worse” years. The Nolan and Singletary years. If there was any positive to take away from that forgettable era in San Francisco 49ers history, it was the draft picks. Starting in 2005, when Mike Nolan […]

Do The 49ers Have A Chance Of Landing Desean Jackson?

After a week of making moves there hasn’t been much activity from the 49ers front office this week. Hints of a Colin Kaepernick contract extension say a deal may be struck after June 1st. In the meantime there has been brief speculation that Desean Jackson’s explosive speed may be coming to Levi’s Stadium this year, […]

49ers in Free Agency: Donte Whitner

It’s only natural as fans to become attached to “our” players.  Guys that are drafted or play multiple years for the San Francisco 49ers organization automatically become fan favorites.  As fans we often overlook the overall talent of certain players just because they’re on “our” team. Donte Whitner isn’t one to overlook though.   He’s a […]

Looking Ahead: Where to Improve in 2014

After a heartbreaking loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Championship, the San Francisco 49ers Quest for Six was put on hiatus. However, the 49er Faithful have a lot to look forward to next season, and that goes beyond the new stadium in Santa Clara. Signing certain unrestricted free agents is critical. Anquan Boldin, […]
