San Francisco Is Pasting Dallas: Is There Hope Yet For The 49ers?
Their obituary has been written hundreds of times since May, and it's true that it's only the preseason, and what can you really determine in August? But could it be that the worst thing about the 2015-16 San Francisco 49ers will be their field?
It's their second preseason game, and the 49ers lead the Cowboys 13-0 at halftime (UPDATE: 23-6, final) ... thanks to two OK drives for field goals and two interceptions -- one on a shock bigfoot sighting otherwise known as 303-pound defensive lienman Mike Purcell that went for a pick six.

The Cowboys started Tony Romo and played him for one series, after saying they might not due to the condition of the turf at Levi's Stadium, and the series ended in a punt. Dez Bryant will not play for Dallas.
Bigger news for San Francisco was the return of linebacker Navorro Bowman, who was in for three plays and made three tackles. Bowman sat out the entire 2014 season with a torn ACL and MCL, suffered in the playoffs the previous season.
The 49ers didn't play Reggie Bush. As is typical of the preseason, the teams on the field bared little resemblance to those which will begin the regular season. But through two exhibition games, the 49ers look, dare we say it, decent.
