The San Francisco 49ers, my team, my boys, feels now more like watching tape from one side of a 2014 Pro Bowl game. I am a realist and I know that growing a team from the ground up takes time and cultivation that is akin to franchise suicide, but this
What the fuck do I even say? What even is there? It’s not as if our team has just been beleaguered by injuries (*hands Beastmode a tissue for his tears) or some other catastrophic accident, our lackluster season has been the culmination of systemic and repetitive organizational ambivalence and ineptitude.
So here we are, on the eve of the 2017 NFL season, and like any good Niners fan, the future looks mighty tentative, if not a bit bleak. Unfortunately, the preseason is always quite contagious with the vilest of contaminations: hope. New GM, John Lynch, and HC, Kyle Shanahan, inherit
*Blink and you might miss this review.
Poor, Indy, finishing .500 last year, which by the good graces of being in the AFC South means they managed to be second in a division where mediocrity takes ambition. All of last year’s preseason rumors about potentially letting Pagano go if the Colts

Perhaps I am just looking for a shiny ring to rest my Bay Area hat on since the Sharks loss to the Preds last night tempers my enthusiasm, it sure as hell isn't the dumpster fire of the Niners, and we'll have to see how the Giants fair in the
Look, Monday, you’ve been great and we’ve shared some “alright” maybe even “fun” times together but I think it might be time for us to look into seeing other days. You’re a super cool day but I think it is time for us to move on.
Beerguyrob, our regular open thread
As the year comes to a close DFO took some time to have some introspective thoughts from around the NFL to consider what sorts of New Year’s resolutions one would be able to hear if they were merely a fly on the wall of corporate offices, locker rooms, showers, and
Hey, guess what’s better than writing a season preview for a loser team that no one cares about, i.e. the Browns? Writing it for a loser team that is your own!
Super Bowl 50 will be held at Levi’s Stadium. The Niners are in contention to be the first NFL team
Welp. It’s the Browns. And aside from some weird childhood nostalgia or misguided sympathies, few of you reading this will be deeply attached to my analysis (really it would have just been rude to have previewed the other 30 teams—obviously I am not counting this alleged Texans that I hear
