    It was a Christmas gift I didn't want as any of you did. A 25-17 defeat at the hands of the St. Louis Rams that officially ended our dreams of being an outside contender with a losing record to make this years playoffs. Mike Singletary led his rag-time team into the Edward Jones Dome, realizing that this could and ultimately would be his last hurrah as the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. Witnessing the dreaded penalties eight of them in all for 87 total yards as an undisciplined set of misfits and Singletary's nationally televised tirade with then starting quarterback Troy Smith on the sidelines following his interception set the stage for what this game was all about. Everything unraveled as if it was destined to be. Mike Singletary shuffled the deck yet again...

    The 2010 San Francisco 49ers have ruptured their main artery at their all-time lowest flogging, following their devastating and humiliating loss many hundreds of miles south in San Diego, California against the Chargers 34-7 in a nationally televised debacle on the NFL Network. Mike Singletary's continued tight-lipped and head scratching antics continue to be a mesmerizing spectacle as he continues with his relating matters to watching film and moving forward to the next game on the schedule. He is without a doubt a man without any legitimate answers. As all of us watched in horror the Alex Smith and Mike Singletary show took center stage in this pivotal showdown for a legitimate shot at being a viable contender for this year's NFL Playoffs. Both teams with so much at...

    The 2005 NFL Draft featured clearly two intriguing college quarterbacks for which the San Francisco 49ers had the first pick of. California's West Coast Icon in Aaron Rodgers and or Urban Meyer's shotgun extraordinaire Alex Smith out of the University of Utah who had no real experience taking snaps from underneath the center. Of course the San Francisco 49ers under then head coach Mike Nolan and Vice President of Personnel Scot McCloughan picked Alex Smith. It was and still is in my calculations and so many others around me the worst decision ever made by this organization in any given draft ever. Now following a devastating and humiliating loss in Green Bay at the very hands of the complete quarterback in Aaron Rodgers who was superior in every way throwing for three...

    Before a nationally televised stage on Monday Night Football on ESPN, the 2010 San Francisco 49ers looked almost surreal like from the 1980's in their almost complete dominance over their division rival Arizona Cardinals on the road at that defeating them 27-6 to stay alive in a desperate bid for the playoffs. Now we find ourselves one game back from the would you believe St. Louis Rams with their number one drafted rookie quarterback in Sam Bradford. The National Football Conference's Western Division has become a subject of ridicule and conjecture as it was talked about on Monday Night Football between announcers and analysts Ron Jaworski and Jon Gruden. It was mentioned that no team within this division should be allowed to enter the playoffs unless they achieve a...

    Anyone and everyone that is a die-hard loyal San Francisco 49er fan can tell you with all open honesty that they don't, "have to look at the film," to have an opinion on what is ailing this once proud franchise in 2010. Mike Singletary and his coaches are without doubt clueless on what is happening all around them in regards to what makes the players tick, respond and rise to any occasion. The very fact that we suffered one of our worst home losses since the year 1977 is saying far too much in that being beaten 21-0 before all of us and the head coach actually proclaiming: "We are still in this playoff race," is absolute hypocrisy. This loss was not at all Troy Smith's fault. It was and has been all season long an inefficient coaching staff that...

    This was a game for the ages this past Sunday as we all watched with great expectations as to the new wave of energy that has suddenly gripped this team with the second unveiling of new San Francisco 49er quarterback Troy Smith. Just one week ago overseas in London, England before many thousands of English football fans he made a great quarterback controversy happen with his victory over the Denver Broncos. This time he made a great legal statement in cementing himself as the real undisputed starting quarterback of this franchise based upon sheer will, extraordinary self-confidence, great athletic ability and tenacity to fight till the very end. Despite fourteen referee called penalties four of them game stoppers in reversing an interception and three touchdowns in our...

    It must have been the nostalgic English countryside that was inhaled by each and every player as they practiced and mingled in and around London, England in their stellar defeat of the Denver Broncos 24-16 as the English folk treated the 2010 San Francisco 49ers with almost utter royalty with their banners, flags and endless cheers for the designated international home team led by yet another quarterback named Smith. It was a long plane flight to London, England following our aggravating defeat to the Carolina Panthers on the Eastern Coast of the United States in retrospect. Mike Singletary and company were staring at a broken team with a record of (1-6) and their starting quarterback in Alex Smith on the injured list for 3-4 weeks because of a severe sprained shoulder incurred within the...

    The 2010 San Francisco 49ers did it again, they lost yet another game because of a costly turnover that gave the winless starving Carolina Panthers the ball in great field position with a young top gun quarterback in Matt Moore who orchestrated a drive with just over a minute to go to put the winning field goal on the board 23-20 Carolina. The costly interception by back-up quarterback David Carr cost the 49ers not only their season but their ability to even comprehend that they had a legitimate back-up to Alex Smith at all as they sent veteran game winning quarterback Shaun Hill packing last year for the ever inconsistent Carr. Just two weeks ago, San Francisco 49er fans all in and around Candlestick Park screamed for Alex Smith's head and announced; "We want...

    The 2010 San Francisco 49ers finally achieved their first turnover free victory on the season in a Battle of the Bay tribute in defeating the Oakland Raiders 17-9 with a stingy reinvigorated defense and with an offense still struggling to find a scrap of consistency that can find and build a rhythm. When you look at the first half it was almost reminiscent of what we are accustomed to seeing from Alex Smith at the helm of this offense as we struggled to move the ball with any sort of efficiency as he completed only but eight of his twenty passes thrown for a total of 98 total yards. As you are looking back on the gloom and doom of being (0-5) and on the bottom of your own division and still shaking your head as to why you suddenly find yourself falling downward in a spiral...

    The evidence is brutally clear as so many have been saying now for weeks as our beloved number one 2005 NFL Draft pick in quarterback Alex Smith self-destructs yet again right before our very eyes on Sunday Night Primetime football against a Philadelphia Eagles team that was absent of Michael Vick. When all the smoke and dust had cleared at Candlestick Park and Bill Walsh Field the 2010 San Francisco 49ers are still a winless pathetic team that cannot execute consistently on both sides of the ball from one week to the next as Mike Singletary stands by his convictions that Alex Smith is still the best quarterback on his present roster. "He has all the tools to be a good quarterback," says Mike Singletary. Yet here we stand at (0-5) on the season and at the very...

    A combined (11-15) on the road just got that much worse as the 2010 San Francisco 49ers under Mike Singletary suffered yet another heartbreaking loss at the Georgia Dome against the high-flying Atlanta Falcons 16-14 in the last few seconds of the game because of the ever insistent self-mutilating plays that seem to be a never-ending minefield exploding causing ourselves to be the only casualty. The head coaches seat just began to get warm for Mike Singletary after the Kansas City Chiefs obliterated us in every conceivable way on the field just over a week ago 31-10 and sent us with our tails between our legs back home. Despite the obvious of San Francisco 49er offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye being let go almost simultaneously after this ugly debacle and the new one being...

    Someone from ESPN made the comparison to our up and coming Week Two meeting between the Super Bowl Champion New Orleans Saints and the San Francisco 49ers as a biblical clash of epic proportions between Goliath being the Saints and the still smarting 49ers from Week One against Seattle being David. The fight was a well fought one in that we lost because we again beat ourselves with four costly turnovers that made absolutely all the difference in the world when you staring down a champion caliber team like the New Orleans Saints. Coaches and Players took the loss as again a humiliating one in that we seem to do nothing but self-destruct as the weeks go by, further complicating the ultimate target of being a playoff contender and drawing attention to ourselves with other teams...

    They say everything happens for a reason right? Well I'm having the most difficult time finding any real reasoning to define the humiliating defeat we suffered at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks under new and improved head coach Pete Carroll 31-6. The noise at Qwest Field was like a rolling tornado of snarls and jeers whenever we had possession of the ball and on top of that communication with Alex Smith's headset from the sideline was later ruled to be a factor on several of the timeouts called within just the first half of play. It was beyond embarrassing by any standards as I watched this game with immense disdain for a team that really didn't operate like any sort I've ever seen. The first half was a blur of impressive first impression statistics for us...

    The 2010 San Francisco 49ers and their fans have a lot to be enthusiastic about as the team went undefeated in four pre-season games. While these games are in some eyes rather meaningless, for many others it was a giant step forward in auditioning a team that has potential to finally make the NFL playoffs. 49er fans have been awe-struck to see significant balance on both sides of the ball with the offense and defense working in cohesion to reach victory. This is the best team that the San Francisco 49ers has fielded since 2002 and that is not at all a joke. This is a team that has ability and talent, and is almost overflowing with self-confidence. However, they are still not as disciplined as the coaching staff would like the players to be. If we can overcome some of the...

    The second pre-season game of 2010 for the San Francisco 49ers was a pure indication of Mike Singletary's stamp upon this team in noticeable improvement in both the defense and offense was on exhibition from the Patrick Willis rock solid sack of the grand spectacle; "out of retirement Brett Favre to the measured success of Alex Smith moving the offense with efficiency down the length of the field and the safety sack by Derek Walker of rookie Minnesota Viking quarterback Joe Webb." The 15-10 defeat of the Minnesota Vikings at Candlestick was indeed thrilling to all the football human senses. When you think about how incredible the Minnesota Viking defense was last year, being the top ranked rush defense in the league last year and Alex Smith methodically pushing...

    The San Francisco 49ers have been working tirelessly amid abundant speculations and adverse situations regarding their own personnel on the field as they still defeated the Indianapolis Colts in Lucas Oil Stadium in their pre-season debut handedly 37-17. First I'd like to comment on the drama that has unfolded before and amidst the 49ers training camp in Santa Clara and acknowledge the incredible focus the coaching staff has exhibited in keeping the players that are there in uniform competing for that coveted active roster of 53 total players. North Carolina defensive lineman Kentwan Balmer as all of you know had "personal issues to deal with at home abruptly in the midst of 49er training camp and was excused by head coach Mike Singletary for two solid days to gather...

    Vice President of Player Personnel Trent Baalke and Head Coach Mike Singletary approached the 2010 NFL Draft with one mitigating purpose after the 2009 NFL season aftermath and ending up with an (8-8) record. Let's target the absolute best athletes that address the glaring needs on our offensive line that allow us a perfect balance and help quarterback Alex Smith sustain momentum going into a contract season for him. Being blessed with two first round draft choices they made headlines throughout the Bay Area and abroad with their selections of Rutgers offensive tackle Anthony Davis with the 11th overall pick and Idaho's offensive guard Mike Iupati with the 17th overall pick. Both side by side tips the weight scales out over 650-plus pounds in pure adrenaline and youth in which the...

    The San Francisco 49ers of 2010 have set the bar higher than ever before with a free agency and draft spectacle that looks like an approaching hurricane storm that is about to subdue the National Football Conference's Western Division. A major statement was made on behalf of new Vice President of Personnel Trent Baalke and head coach Mike Singletary to upgrade a lackluster offensive line that often looked like an oversaturated sponge that was unable to execute with any real sort of consistency. If you are as old as I am you'll remember the very old Wendy's Hamburger Restaurant advertisement of "Where's the beef," from three adorable little old ladies that made headlines around the world. Well Mike Singletary and new offensive line coaches Mike Solari...

    On Monday March 22nd, 2010 San Francisco 49ers President Jed York announced the official departure of San Francisco 49ers General Manager Scot McCloughan. It was like a deafening blindside shot to the side of the head as the approaching 2010 NFL Draft draws nearer with very important first round draft picks the 49ers hold the very future of their franchise within their hands. This is the off-season that Scot our man in charge of player personnel since 2005 has always worked his magic in delivering calculated and precision like talent to a team starving to reach the playoffs. With the 49ers holding the 13th and 17th picks in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft it becomes very critical that the 49ers front office be united in who they pick via their war room as the board...

    When the news broke in early March about the No#1 overall draft pick in the 2002 NFL draft in David Carr coming to San Francisco in essence to replace veteran hard competitor Shaun Hill my temperature began to exceed the boiling point. Carr a Bakersfield native who played collegiate football at Fresno State and over the last two years as a back-up to Eli Manning on the New York Giants nudged Shaun completely out of the picture after exceptional sacrifices and service to our beloved franchise. Saying goodbye to Shaun Hill in my opinion was hard to do. He represented what the consummate professional does when faced with unprecedented competition and embraces whatever opportunities that simply come his way. The un-drafted free agent quarterback out of Maryland joined the 49ers...
