Super Bowl winner is…

This is my Sunday column. This Super Bowl will be nothing like the previous one: Seahawks 43, Broncos 8. This one will be grim. The Seahawks won’t blow out the Patriots. The Patriots won’t blow out the Seahawks. Neither team will score more than 20 points. This year’s Super Bowl could come down the final […]

Baalke’s baffling hires

This is my Friday column. Trent Baalke, you sly dog. I thought I had you figured out. I thought I could read you like a map. I knew you revealed your master plan for the 49ers’ coaching search when you said, “This isn’t a rebuild situation. This is a reload situation,” at the end-of-the-season press […]

Baalke is trying to be AKA Brian Sabean of the S.F Giants. Wait a minute, is he trying to duplicate how the S. F Giants ... - Jamiacan49ers

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 […]

Good hire. Chyrst should be awesome. Comes from a football family and a seasoned coordinator. He deserves a shot.... - Crazy Niner Eddie

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 […]

They are as bad as .com for the 49ers, believe me.... - Jim Mora

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 […]

Grant, you are the only person in the universe who would compare Mariota's arm to Alex Smith's. Incredible.... - Sullyball

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 […]

I get your points grant. Make sense, but at same time you admit Kraperpants isn't a pocket passer. I don't think he ever... - Daniners

Baalke: “I think somewhere in there (Tomsula) said we’re going to run the football.”

SANTA CLARA — This is the transcript of Jim Tomsula’s introductory press conference, courtesy of the 49ers’ p.r. department. CEO Jed York opening comments: “Good afternoon. We are here to introduce the new head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, Jim Tomsula. It’s been a long process, a detail-oriented process. [49ers general manager] Trent Baalke […]

Wow! I refrained from examining this situation for a week. The hire was uninspiring and as I began to "look under the ... - Youfamissim

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 […]

"They have completed the destruction of what Harbaugh built": I'm pretty sure Baalke put together almost the whole ro... - thekidd

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.

Baalke knows what he is doing? Right.... Back to losing we go! Hope Jed wakes up dead... - CP
