    Colin Kaepernick is no longer the hot hand. As the twelfth week of the NFL season dawned the San Francisco 49ers found themselves tied for second place in the NFC West with the Seattle Seahawks. They had battled through a myriad of issues through the beginning months of the season, but found themselves in position to make their typical end of...

    On Sunday, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reported that San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York had decided to part ways with head coach Jim Harbaugh within 48 hours of the team's final game of the season. That game will be a matchup against the Arizona Cardinals at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara on Sunday, December 28th. It will be Harbaugh's final game with the 49ers....

    Well, we can finally put this story to rest, at least in the context that this is a San Francisco 49ers-centric website and Ray McDonald is no longer a member of the team. Obviously, more will come to light as this new situation unfolds, and it will at least let us cast a final narrative about what went on with this player and his strange season, though...

    The 49ers were officially eliminated from the playoffs with their 17-7 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. This game looked like so many from throughout the season, especially over the last eight games. There was Colin Kaepernick missing wide open receivers including taking a sack instead of hitting a wide open running back, an inability to get into third and...

    Dear Jed York, Rumors are swirling around that Jim Harbaugh and Company are quickly on their way out the door after the 2014 season. Tales of dysfunction and turmoil seem to fill up my news feed on a daily basis with stories of discontent with Harbaugh. Allegedly Trent Baalke and Jim Harbaugh don't see eye to eye on personal decisions at times....

    The San Francisco 49ers season didn't officially end on Sunday with their 24-13 loss to the Oakland Raiders, but for all intents and purposes it's done. All you had to do was watch them go through the motions in the second half to see it. Everything that made them one of the most feared opponents in the NFL the last three seasons has disappeared,...

    The San Francisco 49ers are coming off the most embarrassing home loss in recent memory and travelling across the bay to take on the Oakland Raiders. The 49ers playoff hopes are hanging by a thread as a result of their 19-3 loss on Thanksgiving night to Seattle, a loss which has hung around a few extra days as a result of playing on a Thursday night, and...

    It wasn't supposed to be this way. Coming off of three straight NFC Championship games, the window to win a Super Bowl still looked to be wide open. After all, on paper the offense looked as dangerous as any year since Jerry Rice wore red and gold, and this was the season the unit was supposed to carry an undermanned defense. No...

    Man it's hard to write when you're angry. It took me a long time to build up the nerve to revisit the game from Thanksgiving but I finally went to the DVR and reviewed all the footage I could. I promptly deleted all of that s**t soon thereafter. Some specific footage in particular provided me what I needed to see and in my...

    Of all the possible solutions to recent 49er woes, fans clamor for this one the most. Our offense struggles, while the most dynamic player on the squad seems pocket-bound. We remember the bullet speed, the defenders leapt at a single bound, the superstar in the making. We remember big chunks of yardage. We remember defensive coordinators quaking. Where have...

    Now that the divorce between Jim Harbaugh and the San Francisco 49ers seems inevitable, it's hard to tell which narrative fans accept more. The one that portrays Harbaugh as a two-time Super Bowl champion, who built the 49ers from the ground up. Or, the one absolving him of blame for Colin Kaepernick's regression, and this season's offensive...

    Jim Harbaugh is a builder. Every offseason Harbaugh makes a pilgrimage to Peru where among other things he helps build homes for those less fortunate. This isn't all that different from what Harbaugh does in his day job as a head football coach. Whether the location has been the University of San Diego, Stanford University or now...

    Is firing Greg Roman going to solve this team's offensive woes? Yes. Wait, no. Maybe? Greg Roman is a "trusted agent" of Jim Harbaugh. The game plans, the play calling, the 2014 offensive strategy as we've seen unfold has Harbaugh's fingerprints all over it. It could be argued that Harbaugh and Roman may be the...

    I still believed. Despite what I saw, I truly believed. Against the Giants' abysmal D, we'd scored 16 points despite 5 interceptions, only the last of which put it away. Against the Redskins' demoralized D, we'd scored 17 points, needing another near-miracle finish. And Seattle's D, having survived the first round of HGH testing, had quietly...

    Over the course of the past two weeks, the San Francisco 49ers won ugly against some really bad defenses. On Thanksgiving night, the team left little for fans to be thankful for as the team lost ugly to a really good defense. The 49ers defense itself has been devastated by injuries this season. However, they have somehow kept things together...

    To say the San Francisco 49ers were defeated by the Seattle Seahawks on Thanksgiving night by a score of 19-3 is an understatement. They were beat up in every phase of the game as Seattle left no doubt who the better team was. San Francisco struggled in every phase of the game. The offense could not get out of its own way, and a series right...

    First off, Happy Thanksgiving to all 49ers Fans! Now that we got that out of way. Listen up, 49er fans, especially those attending the Thanksgiving game on Thursday. We all knew it would come down to this! This year, the NFL schedule favored us. Our big game did NOT happen in week 2. It happens on week 13 and the first game is at...

    With all due respect to the Arizona Cardinals, this is Round 1 of the NFC West Championship. It certainly feels that way at least, especially in light of Arizona seemingly getting punished for actually daring to lead the division at the hands of the defending champs in Seattle. Carson Palmer maybe could have won that game on the road,...

    On Thanksgiving night the best rivalry in the National Football League will fire up once again when the San Francisco 49ers host the Seattle Seahawks at Levi's Stadium. They will bring identical 7-4 records into the game, and with Philadelphia taking on Dallas earlier in the day a 49ers victory will push them into a playoff position due to holding the...

    A hot topic coming out of the 49ers 17-13 win over Washington yesterday has been the defense giving up 125 yards to Alfred Morris on 21 carries. Morris is the third running back to go over 100 yards on the 49ers this season, and with Marshawn Lynch visiting Levi's Stadium on Thursday there is cause for concern. While Morris' numbers are...
