Report: 49ers settle for Geep

After getting turned down by Kyle Shanahan, Adam Gase, Lane Kiffin, Rob Chudzinski, someone named Bob Bicknell, and maybe others, the 49ers turned to Geep Chryst to be the offensive coordinator, according to a report. Chryst was the 49ers’ quarterbacks coach the past four seasons. Under Chryst’s tutelage, Colin Kaepernick earned no trips to the […]

Report: 49ers get Chudzinskied

The Colts re-signed Rob Chudzinski and promoted him to associate head coach Tuesday Morning, according to reports.  Chudzinski was the 49ers’ top choice to replace Greg Roman as offensive coordinator. Apparently, the 49ers don’t quite reach the Chudzinski Level right now. So, the Niners must turn to Plan B (or C or D or Ʃ) to find someone […]

2015 NFL draft quarterback comparisons

This is what I see when I watch the top quarterbacks in this year’s draft class. Marcus Mariota: Alex Smith. Why: Smart quarterbacks who dominated college football and don’t make many mistakes. Practically the same size – 6-4, 218 pounds. Fast runners, although Mariota is faster. Good passers, although neither has a cannon and neither […]

Report: 49ers name Eric Mangini defensive coordinator

My goodness. What a downgrade from Vic Fangio and Ed Donatell. Mangini was a defensive coordinator for one season nine years ago. That year (2005), the Patriots’ defense ranked 26th in yards allowed and 17th in points allowed. In 2004, the year before Mangini, the Patriots’ defense ranked 9th in yards allowed and 2nd in […]

Patriots’ tactics deflate the game’s integrity

This is my Thursday column. I don’t trust Bill Belichick or Tom Brady. But, I don’t want to rush to judgment. Maybe Belichick and Brady didn’t defile the integrity of the league this past Sunday. Maybe someone else or something else deflated the Patriots’ footballs before or during the AFC championship game. We don’t yet […]

49ers see runs of success in their quarterback’s future

This is my Sunday column. Keep running him until he breaks down. That is the 49ers’ plan for Colin Kaepernick next season. I can’t prove it beyond a reasonable doubt, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, but I can make a case. Exhibit A: Mike Shanahan and Rob Chudzinski – the top candidates to become […]

Meet Jim unHarbaugh

Jed York hardly took his eyes off of Jim Tomsula during his introductory press conference Thursday afternoon. York was captivated, in awe, bursting with pride. There is something almost mystical about Tomsula. He is a father figure. He is personal. He speaks from the heart. He talks about the need for good human relationships. He […]

49ers raise the bar

According to reports, the 49ers have fired Vic Fangio. Fangio, 56, is the best defensive coordinator in the NFL. But the best isn’t good enough for the 49ers. The 49ers have high standards.
