    I think we can officially say, barring any injury, that the Brian Hoyer era is over for good in San Francisco. It was not fun while it lasted. He was never going to be the long-term solution at quarterback, despite knowing the system, due to his...

    After losing the last five games by a total of 13 points, the San Francisco 49ers are making a case to be the best 0-6 team in the history of the NFL. But even with all of the close calls and bad luck, a majority of the team's wounds have been self-inflicted. Dropped passes, missed tackles, and penalties have set them back, which make the losses all the...

    Week 6 turned out to be a major turning point for the San Francisco 49ers, as the team elected to focus more on 2018 by releasing linebacker NaVorro Bowman and benching quarterback Brian Hoyer for the rookie, C.J. Beathard. If you thought the 2017 season was going to be about wins and losses for the San Francisco 49ers, you were...

    The San Francisco 49ers have taken a knee on the 2017 season - and that's a good thing. No, that's not a reference to the often-discussed and overly-analyzed sideline protests of the National Anthem. It has nothing to do with oppression, political agendas, or the American flag. Thank goodness, because everyone is tired of hearing...

    It's another exciting Sunday of professional football, with your San Francisco 49ers traveling to play the Indianapolis Colts for a Week 5 barnburner. The 49ers are winless through the first quarter of the season, losing three of four games by a combined total of eight points. While the offense refuses to put the ball in the end zone, the...

    It's no secret that 2017 is a rebuilding year for the San Francisco 49ers. 49ers general manager John Lynch would never admit it – nor would he attempt to rebrand the team's rebuild a "reload" like his...

    The San Francisco 49ers visit the Indianapolis Colts in Week 5, and these four one-on-one matchups will play major roles in determining whether or not the Niners pull off their first victory of 2017. Week 5 might provide the first real chance for a San Francisco 49ers victory over a quarter of the way through 2017. The Niners...

    San Francisco 49ers (0–4) vs. Indianapolis Colts (1–3) After losing in overtime in a tough divisional matchup last week against the Cardinals, perhaps the 49ers finally get it right. They're playing a Colts team that just got destroyed against the Seahawks and is still without its franchise...

    The San Francisco 49ers have played four weeks of agonizing football. It doesn't matter how close the 49ers came to winning; the fact remains that they've scored the second-fewest touchdowns in the league and complete less than 60-percent of their pass attempts. But, as in season's past, the 49ers have fantastic ability to kick field...

    As Brian Hoyer's final pass of the day resulted in yet another incompletion, I thought to myself, "What's the point?" Granted, the San Francisco 49ers were about to kick a field goal with 2:28 left in overtime to take a 15-12 lead over the Arizona Cardinals, but nothing about that advantage felt safe. Turns out, it wasn't, as the Cards marched downfield to...

    There are countless life lessons I've taken from football, but one has always stuck with me: Potential in one hand and nothing in the other are the same things. That's a slightly different, G-rated version of the quote my high school coach said to our football team after a particularly brutal effort against Davis...

    Last Friday night, Week Three of the NFL season became larger than football. It became larger than tackles, touchdowns, quarterback sacks or last minute gridiron heroics. The instant that the President chose to call NFL players "sons of bitches" for kneeling in protest during the National Anthem, the ideological extremes of an already fractured America...

    Los Angeles Rams (1–1) vs. San Francisco 49ers (0–2) 49ers' Kyle Shanahan and Rams' Sean McVay are two of the youngest head coaches in the NFL and now come full circle. They worked on the Washington Redskins' staff from 2010–2013. The Rams lead the NFC West with five offensive touchdowns...

    This evening, the San Francisco 49ers take on their long-time rivals from Southern California. Each time the 49ers play the Los Angeles Rams, my intense dislike for the yellow and blue is jolted alive from a deep slumber. I think back to the hard-fought Monday Night Football battles, and the seasons when the teams battled for the NFC West...

    The San Francisco 49ers have kicked off the 2017 regular season with a 0-2 record and have yet to discover any sort of offensive continuity, suggesting the Niners are right where many thought they would be at this point during the team's rebuild. Two weeks into the 2017 NFL season, the San Francisco 49ers are 0-2 and are one of just three...

    In the 49ers' 12-9 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, free safety Jimmie Ward returned from his hamstring injury, and it didn't take long for him to get back to work. On 3rd-and-8, on Seattle's first possession of the game, quarterback Russell Wilson dumped the ball to running back C.J. Prosise who quickly got up field for a nine-yard gain and a first...

    The San Francisco 49ers enter Dante's unmentioned level of Hell today. It's a soul-crushing colosseum of dark blue, neon green, and the number '12' flying on flags or sewn on jerseys. Fans entering the arena dress as comic book characters and blow their vocal cords out for no apparent reason. Welcome, my friends, to Century Link Field, home of...

    For the first 11 minutes of the 2017 NFL season, the San Francisco 49ers looked like a new team -- until rookie linebacker Reuben Foster was carted off the field due to a leg injury. It took less than a quarter of regular-season football, but Foster has already become the new heart of the Niners' defense. Sunday's...

    San Francisco 49ers (0–1) vs. Seattle Seahawks (0–1) Kyle Shanahan gets his first division rival game on the road against the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks have won the last six matchups but are coming off a tough road game in which their offense scored zero touchdowns against the Green Bay...
