Back On Track: Niners-Rams Recap

There is obviously a lot to praise from last night’s game against St. Louis. The Niners rushed the ball effectively (40 attempts for 219 yards), prevented Sam Bradford from beating us (he finished 19-41 for 202 yards, one TD and a pick), and proved that the Rams really don’t have a run game (19 […]

Niners-Rams: Thursday Night Preview

Heading into St. Louis for Thursday night football, just four days after being embarrassed at home by Indianapolis, the Niners face a lot of questions on both sides of the ball. The Niners sit at 1-2, tied for last place in the NFC West and two games behind the Seahawks atop the division. […]

The Niners Have Lost Their Mojo

We fudged up, guys. The sad reality is that we flat out got beat by a better team. The Colts held onto the ball, didn’t shoot themselves in the foot with penalties, and executed in the red zone. We had trouble protecting Kap, our receivers didn’t get open, and we failed to capitalize on […]

Aldon Smith was arrested for suspicion of DUI early Friday morning, after officers received a call about a vehicle crash at around 7 am in San Jose. ESPN reports that the Niners are aware of the situation, and gave the following press release. “The 49ers organization is aware of the matter involving Aldon Smith. […]

The 49ers defense came under fire for allowing the good-but-not-great Seahawks offense to put up an astonishing 29 points (one more point than the highly touted Packers offense). Some critics claim that the Niners pass defense has fallen off the map due to aging corners and an inability to get pressure on opposing quarterbacks. […]

“I guess sportsmanship doesn’t go both ways.” Those are the words Seattle Seahawks cornerback, Richard Sherman, used to describe his interaction with Jim Harbaugh, his former college coach, after the game. Sherman had run up to Harbaugh, who was making his way to the tunnel, gave him a pat on the butt, […]

In order to accurately depict the rivalry between the Niners and Seahawks, it will come as no surprise that we must first journey back to the Stanford and USC days of Jim Harbaugh and Pete Carroll. Every Bay Area fan has heard the story: it was 2007, Pete Carroll was in the midst of a […]

Breaking: Either Kap or Wilson Will Shave Their Eyebrow on Sunday

In an interesting subplot to the Niners-Seahawks game on Sunday, it appears that Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson have a made a friendly bet: the loser of Sunday’s tilt will have to shave off their own eyebrow. The TBS staff was able to get a microphone in on Wilson and Kaepernick’s game of Madden, but […]

Don’t Call It A Gimmick: Kap Is For Real

It was fourth-and-two. Three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, the Niners up by a field goal and facing a crucial decision just inside Green Bay territory. Kaepernick had just tried to draw the Green Bay defense offside with a hard count, one that Clay Matthews had read from the beginning, visibly urging […]

Week 1 Preview: Bring on the Packers!

Fellow 49ers fans, the greatest time of year is almost upon us. We are two days away from opening our season, like last year, against the Green Bay Packers. On Sunday we begin to say goodbye to a faulty, frigid stadium hosting its final season opener; a place where many Niner greats […]
