More Deja Vu for 49ers, Falling to 1-4 with Thursday Night Loss

By: Joe Lami SANTA CLARA, Calif.– The mediocrity of the San Francisco 49ers continues, as they fall to 1-4, after Thursday night’s loss to division rival Arizona. The Cardinals, decimated by injuries, destroyed the 49ers in every aspect of the field in the 33-21 victory.

Poor Second Half Once Again the Downfall for 49ers

By: Joe Lami SANTA CLARA, Calif.– Make it three straight losses for the San Francisco 49ers, as they fell to the Dallas Cowboys 24-17, dropping their record to 1-3.

49ers Welcome Rams Back to California with Shutout

By: Joe Lami SANTA CLARA, Calif.–In one of the most underwhelming Monday Night Football games in NFL history, the San Francisco 49ers earned their first ever week one shutout, blanking the Los Angeles Rams 28-0.

49ers Offensive Inconsistency Continues

By: Joe Lami SANTA CLARA, Calif.–Inconsistent. One word used by Chip Kelly to describe the 49ers offensive efforts in Friday night’s 21-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Food Review: The AT&T Park Porcini Doughnut

Ah, AT&T Park. To the lesser-minded, this is simply the San Francisco gem that houses a mediocre relief staff and the robot that replaced Buster Posey after “the slide” , but those who are truly in the know can see the park for what it is– a cornucopia of overpriced culinary delights. Yes, there’s plenty to indulge in at the ballpark, so much so that the scoreboard will feature clips…
