Now it has been five days since Adam Schefter tweeted the 49ers and Anquan Boldin are “closing in on a deal.” What do you think is taking so long? Do you think the Niners and Boldin will agree to a deal before free agency starts on March 11? If not, which teams possibly could outbid […]
If the Dolphins make a bad decision and trade their top draft picks for Jim Harbaugh, who should the 49ers draft with the Dolphins first-rounder, No.19? If he’s healthy, I say the 49ers should take Marqise Lee. If Lee is not healthy, I say the Niners should take Allen Robinson. But if Kelvin Benjamin is […]
Jed York confirmed on twitter that he did fly to Miami today, but Trent Baalke and Paraag Marathe did not go with him according to York. York apparently will attend an NFL meeting in Miami on Monday, although I do not know what the nature of that meeting will be. I can’t find anything about […]
I have no knowledge if this is credible. I’m putting it up. Turron Davenport tweeted this: “According to a source at Miami International airport, a flight to Miami has been chartered by John York & Trent Baalke set to land at 18:00.” That’s John York, not Jed York. Davenport just tweeted that Paraag Marathe and […]
To those of you who say the 49ers should just pay Jim Harbaugh because of what he has done the past three seasons compared to how inept the club was with previous head coaches: You also should realize that Harbaugh and his agent had an opportunity when negotiating the initial contract to build escalators into […]
Here is my Wednesday column on Jim Harbaugh. Under no circumstances should the 49ers give Jim Harbaugh a contract extension this offseason. Let him play out the final two years of his deal. Or let him win a Super Bowl before giving him a raise. Apparently, Harbaugh wants to be the highest-paid head coach in […]
I was reading an article by Steve Corkran yesterday in which he interviewed Rich Gannon about Johnny Manziel. Here is an excerpt of Gannon on Manziel: “My biggest concern is the discipline from a quarterback standpoint. Footwork, sitting in the pocket, going through reads and progressions. He has to go somewhere where they have a very […]
This is my Monday column on Johnny Manziel. One week before the NFL Scouting Combine, Johnny Manziel – bless his heart – said he wanted to be the first rookie quarterback to win the Super Bowl. Don’t count on it. Manziel has a better chance to be the next Matt Leinart. Remember him? Won the […]
Now that Cleveland Browns’ owner Jimmy Haslam has confirmed that his team had trade talks with the 49ers about Jim Harbaugh, here are eight questions 49ers’ owner Jed York might want to answer: 1. Why did you deny that the 49ers and Browns discussed trading Jim Harbaugh? 2. Why did this trade not happen? 3. […]
USA Today just reported that Cleveland Browns’ owner Jimmy Haslam has confirmed the Browns had discussions with the 49ers about a trade for Jim Harbaugh. “There was an opportunity there, and it didn’t materialize,” Haslam said.

According to Adam Schefter, the 49ers are close to signing wide receiver Anquan Boldin. “Deal expected to get done,” Schefter tweeted. What do you expect the parameters of this deal to be?
One of the best reporters in the country, Bob McGinn, spoke off the record with NFL personnel executives and scouts and got their impressions of the top-50 prospects in the upcoming draft. Here is a brief excerpt about cornerback Bradley Roby from McGinn’s report: “When you talk about quickness, speed, athletic ability, change of direction, […]
Assuming the 49ers and Browns really did have a trade in place to send Jim Harbaugh to Cleveland for draft picks, how many draft picks do you think were in the trade? One first round pick? Two first round picks? Do you think the Browns were willing to trade the No.4 pick in the upcoming […]
