Colin Kaepernick is being investigated for a “suspicious incident” involving an intoxicated woman. The incident occurred on April 1st in Miami. This is news to me. I have no comment on it, but I’m forwarding it along to you. To read the incident report, click here. This says that the incident occurred at Ricardo Lockette’s […]
The 49ers need a third receiver. That is clear. Most draft gurus agree that the Niners need a burner, someone who can “take the top off the defense,” someone who runs a 4.3 40-yard dash or a low 4.4. Someone like Brandin Cooks or Odell Beckham. I agree, the 49ers need a deep threat. The […]

Fact No.1: The 49ers were linked publicly to five big-name wide receivers during free agency — DeSean Jackson, Golden Tate, Emmanuel Sanders, Hakeem Nicks and Julian Edelman. The Niners signed none of them. Fact No.2: The 49ers have been linked publicly to three cornerbacks who are projected to get drafted in the second or third […]
Jim Harbaugh says he doesn’t like comparing players. I do. So, here are my comparisons for the top wide receivers in the upcoming draft. I’d like to read your comparisons, too. Sammy Watkins: Torrey Smith. Mike Evans: Marques Colston. Odell Beckham: Golden Tate. Brandin Cooks: Tavon Austin. Marqise Lee: Victor Cruz. Kelvin Benjamin: Plaxico Burress. […]
Good news for the Niners — draft gurus are down on Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert. Todd McShay recently dropped Gilbert from the 11th-best prospect to the 24th-best prospect on McShay’s big board. If the Lions pass on Gilbert with the 10th pick, should the 49ers trade up to the 11th pick and draft him?
This is my Friday column on the Raiders. 49ers fans — feel free to skip this. I wrote off the Raiders 15 minutes after free agency began, wrote them off as soon as general manager Reggie McKenzie let franchise left tackle, Jared Veldheer, sign with the Cardinals. The Raiders will be lucky to win five […]
Every year, Trent Baalke makes at least one draft pick that comes out of left field, like the A.J. Jenkins pick or the Vance McDonald pick or the Corey Lemonier pick. Predict one player Baalke will pick out of left field this year, and explain your reasoning for the pick.
This is my Wednesday column about instant replay in baseball. WARNING: This is not a football column. 49ers fans — feel free to skip this. OAKLAND – Wednesday afternoon during game 1 of the A’s doubleheader against Cleveland, Indians third-baseman Carlos Santana threw out A’s catcher Derek Norris at home plate. Norris slid and got […]
Carlos Rogers signed with the Raiders on Monday. Who do you think will replace him on the 49ers’ depth chart? It’s possible the 49ers could make Tramaine Brock the left cornerback, Eric Wright the right cornerback and Perrish Cox the nickelback. But it’s more likely the 49ers will draft a cornerback early in the upcoming […]
These are the picks I think the 49ers will make in the upcoming draft, not necessarily the picks I would make if I were picking for the 49ers. Trade pick No.30 to the Jaguars for pick No.39 and Jacksonville’s third-rounder in 2015. With pick No.39, the 49ers select JORDAN MATTHEWS, WR, VANDERBILT. The Jaguars trade up […]
