Fan’s Perspective: 49ers Hire Jim Tomsula

He told us so.  So, I’ll do it.  We were all to hold Jed York accountable for seasons that don’t result in Super Bowls.  In theory, it should be relatively easy.   Winning the big one isn’t any easy accomplishment on a year in and year out basis.  Simple mathematics can profess that.  But how exactly […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Dreaded “What If” Scenario

Football followers and pundits alike speak candidly about Trent Baalke’s recently implemented draft strategy.  More often than not, his strategy is raved about.   Drafting  talented, collegiate players that are overcoming injuries seems to be a great way to balance a stacked roster.   It allows the San Francisco 49ers front office to analyze the salary cap […]

49ers Lock Up Kaepernick, Pressure Falls to Harbaugh

It appears Teddy KGB is the new financial advisor in the San Francisco 49ers front office. The team ended all speculation over whether or not they would extend their quarterback’s contract, signing him to a huge six-year extension with a record $61 million guaranteed. The deal locks Kaepernick in through 2020 and vaults him into […]

49ers Set A New Record With Kaepernick Re-Signing

It’s a done deal, after only one day of talks the San Francisco 49ers re-signed star quarterback, Colin Kaepernick to a whopping 6-years, $110M. $61M of that guaranteed. The San Francisco 49ers set a new record of $61M in guaranteed money for quarterback Colin Kaepernick, $3M more than Peyton Manning. The re-signing probably wasn’t as […]

49ers Trade Conditional 2015 Pick For Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson

San Francisco 49ers General Manager, Trent Baalke, is known for his draft day savvy. So far, so good in the 2014 NFL Draft. The 49ers did not trade up in the first-round on day one, nor did they select a wide receiver like some of us thought, but they did manage a rather bold move […]
