For Better or Worse, Time to Move On

Sleep evaded me last night.  My family’s health is in good standing.  Financially, we’re above water…..barely.  Overall, things in my live are at a a stable place.  But, I tossed.  I turned.  There was little rest to be found.  For the life of me, I couldn’t pin point why.  Then, it dawned on me.  It […]

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 […]

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 […]

My How the Mighty Have Fallen:TITIK

In a season of embarrassments, we experienced the lowest of all embarrassments as the San Francisco 49ers fell to the Oakland Raiders.  The only missing piece from this masterpiece of a clunker was a tweet from 49ers CEO Jed York himself.  While in full football depression mode, let’s recap with some things I think I […]

Harbaugh’s Our Coach Too

If he goes, it’ll be a damn shame. Occupations are filled will tumultuous relationships.  It’s commonplace to have a certain level of disdain for those you work for or with.  Jumble up a group of people with different backgrounds, beliefs, and ideas, and people aren’t always going to get along.  But, there’s something more than […]

At an Impasse: Things I Think I Know

As fans we’re invested.  If you’re like me, you’ve dedicated a large portion of your life to the San Francisco 49ers game day.  We put ourselves within situations and scenarios that give us the power to think we are Trent Baalke or Jim Harbaugh.  It’s not an uncommon practice.  Some verbalize their theories, valid or […]

Amid drama, 49ers beat Chiefs, 22-17

This week brought out some of the worst parts I’ve seen from the franchise and fan base. Gone are the times of honest discourse regarding the team. Now fans lash out at media members for doing simply their job; stating an opinion. Folks, you don’t have to agree with them, let alone listen. It seems […]

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 […]

Rivalry Rekindled

Whether you’re talking about The Catch, the wars in the early 90s or Owens celebrating on the star, the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys have a rivalry dating back to the 1970s. 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. […]

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 […]
