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 […]

Giants Rundown: Things I Think I Know

Ten games into the 2014 season, and it’s been unlike anything I’ve ever seen since I’ve been following the San Francisc0 49ers.  Pulse enhancing…..it’s the best way I can describe the week to week saga that is our passion.  The 49ers consistently seem to play to the level of their opponent.  In Sunday’s victory against […]

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.

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.

3rd & 3

Candlestick Park saw its final game this past weekend, an exhibition flag football contest between San Francisco 49ers legends and other NFL greats, but three plays, known simply by one name, will live on forever. The Catch, volumes 1-3, all lifted the Faithful, a city, a team and will live on in football lore. And, despite their […]

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 […]

Both Davis and teammate Alex Boone have said they are unsatisfied with their current contract. In the wake of quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s mega contract extension, both Davis and Boone feel […]
