The Kaepernick dilemma... and more.

I make one comment and now I'm back... damn. I still hold to my view that the NFL is turning itself into figure skating (dancing with corrupt judges) by having too many rules, essentially making...

That'll do for me...

Regardless of your personal opinion of me, I don't think anyone at NN would suggest that I'm the kind of fan who looks for excuses. I don't blame refs or other external influences. I am now. I...

Finding Delmuir... for whatever reason.

I'll be in the Bay Area from 1/16 through 1/23. I also live in the Pasadena area although it has been noted that I'm not as familiar with the local geography as I should be. If anyone wants to...

Respectful? Nice? Just having fun? Those are terms that no longer apply to me when it's San Francisco versus Green Bay in the playoffs.

1995... 1996...1997... 2001... and Packer fans are still complaining about 1998. We didn't even win the Super Bowl. Steve Young's chance to compete with Joe Montana (with Super Bowl wins) was...

Converting A.J. Jenkins to Cornerback?

There's a strong correlation between speed and success as a CB in the NFL. Using 40-yard dash time, the critical drop-off comes at the 4.40 time. Jenkins has optimal speed for a CB with a 4.39...

Mental toughness... do we have it?

Are the 49ers mentally tough? I haven't done the necessary research to properly address this question but I would like to throw it out there and see if our collective knowledge can bring some...

Congratulations, you've caused panic.

As is often the case after a big win, the opposing fans don't give the victors enough credit or respect. Doubly so when the victor is an up and coming team. So it is with Seattle and San Francisco...

Avoiding a playoff game in Seattle: Goal #1, all the time.

Every team, in every division, in the NFL has goals. They have in-game goals, quarter-season goals, and (for some) playoff goals. I believe that the 49ers should have one primary goal that should...

A thought on our fellow fans of the Pacific North-West.

It's hard to be a West coast sports fan. The media ignores us, if at all possible. West coast is synonymous with the "soft" or "finesse" labels that predictably populate the incoherent and...

Reckless, irresponsible, and impressed by shiny objects.

We've all learned something today, although some have suspected for a while, about our coaching staff. They're a good staff in lot of respects and they brought this team back to respectability...

More important than Niner-less NFL on Sunday: Giants win the World Series!

I have been rooting for this bloody team for thirty years, since I was four years old. I'm thrilled. So many years rooting and never winning a title and now two in three years? With a young...

Being competitive...

That's the hallmark of a good team. Good teams certainly lose games from time to time but they rarely get blown out. They're almost always competitive. What worries me about this team is that...

A rant on Jay Cutler...

For the record, I find Cutler to be a bit of an idiosyncratic jerk. That being said, this entire assault on him is BS. No nuance, no 90-10, but rather 100% BS. I listened to a lot of commentators,...

ESPN reports that Nnamdi Asomugha is a free-agent

Apparently he didn't reach some odd bonus in his contract that allowed him to opt out of his contract, which he did. I'm a huge fan and have been hoping for some way to acquire the guy and this may...

Week 1 I wasn't a "real" fan but now... am I prescient? If so, it feels like crap!

I've seen a lot of football in my 32 years on this earth but last Saturday against Tampa Bay was the worst I've ever seen. It wasn't just the execution, play-calling, or ultimate performance. This...

Hold back on Troy Smith... for now...

One of the more interesting stats involving Troy Smith are those involving throws on first down:  17 of 20 for 357 yards over two games. That's nearly 18 yards per attempt, which is fantastic. Not...

That darn Carolina loss is stinging now...

Not to mention giving away games against Philadelphia and Atlanta. Looking at our future schedule we have two rough road games (and given our complete ineptness on the road, it's a safe bet to...

I feel like the victim of a confidence scam

Really, I do. I feel as though I've been tricked by the organization, the talent, and even the media. Everyone talked up the improved performance at the end of the 2008 season and what a difference...

I'm done.

I predicted that the season was over after game one and it appears that I was correct. I'm done. I like Singletary and I defended Smith but this just isn't working. Fire them all and let's start...

Trade for Asomugha?

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Raiders are willing to trade just about everyone, including Nnamdi Asomugha if the offer is good enough. Considering that a shut-down corner is one of our...

Now that week six is complete for the NFC West, our beloved niners finally have a win, and we have a pretty solid understanding of how good our divisional rivals are, we might as well take a look...

Is anyone noticing what I keep saying? Zeigler is the man!

The man just catches the ball. That's it. I know people love Morgan but he doesn't block well, doesn't create space well, or shed a defender well, and his hands aren't great. Zeigler has none of...

My crazy gameplan for future 49er success

I have a couple of simple (and maybe crazy) ideas for this team: 1. Use more two back sets with Dixon and Gore. Utilize Dixon in running downs and short-yardage situations. His goal should be to...

Marshawn Lynch to Seattle

The rumor was that he was going to Philadelphia and while I'm glad he isn't for next weeks game, I'm not too thrilled to see him end up in Seattle. Seattle doesn't have much of a running game and...

Some optimism from a pessimist

  I'm on record as declaring the season over after the first game but I'm having second thoughts. I still think our defense is under-talented, slow, with a very suspect secondary and a weak...
