It’s late June, so don’t expect the 49ers to add some quality, team-changing player at a position of need. After all, an overwhelming percentage of the really good players already are on teams.
Remember the not-too-long-ago days when the 49ers were in a yearly battle to create salary-cap space? Those days are over.
The 49ers’ offensive line is a promising group. But promise and productivity are two different things.
It all starts defensively with the pass rush. The best secondary in the world is going to look pedestrian if the opposing quarterback can sit in the pocket all day. Without a pass rush, a defense is not able to generate as many turnovers. This is the subject of today’s question.
Today’s question is in reference to the blog item I posted earlier this week. Rookie offensive lineman Alex Boone was behind his new teammates because NFL rules prohibited his participation in 49ers workouts before Ohio State staged its graduation ceremonies.
Today is the first day of the remainder of the NFL offseason. To commemorate this momentous occasion, the staff here at Instant 49ers is starting a perhaps-daily feature we like to call “Question of the Day.”
It’s not the best group of receivers the 49ers have ever assembled. Obviously, Rice and Taylor trumps all. But this is the deepest the 49ers have ever been at wideout. (And if you don’t believe me, try to name seven better receivers who have been on the roster at the same time.)
There have been a lot of questions tossed my way recently. And I haven’t had a lot of time to answer them. But here are some answers to common questions surrounding the 49ers at this time.
Tonight — coincidentally, it was right around bed time for the kids – I took part in a live chat with the fans who gathered at 49erswebzone.com and 49ersparadise.com. Thanks to my wife for handling the tucking-in duties without me. Here are some excerpts from the chat. The full transcript can be read at 49erswebzone.
The folks at Niners Nation recently asked me if I’d take part in a 49ers Q&A. We came up with an idea. We’d give our answers; they would give their answers; and anybody who has an opinion will get a chance to let their voices be heard, too.
The Q&A is now over. Earlier this evening, I answered as many questions as possible — more than 20 — in the comments section down below. Obviously, I don’t have a whole lot of new information in the 49ers’ search for an offensive coordinator, but I tried my best. (To make it easier […]
Earlier today, I solicited questions and supplied some answers. Thanks to everyone who took part. Read the questions and answers in the comments section below. The Q&A has concluded for the day. * * *
The 49ers were the second-best team in the NFC West this season. The best team in the division is getting ready to show the world what the NFC West is all about. So while we all get prepared to watch the Cardinals put an NFC West-style whipping on those poor, unsuspecting Falcons, I figured […]
It was an epic day to be a tourist in the Buffalo area.
After the 49ers’ thrashed the Rams with one half of good football, there are two questions on the mind of every 49ers’ fan. 1) Is Mike Singletary going to be the head coach in 2009. And 2) Why wasn’t Shaun Hill starting from Day 1?
