49ers training camp report: Day 12

SANTA CLARA – Here are the highlights of the 49ers’ eighth padded practice of training camp. THE GOOD 1. RB Reggie Bush. Didn’t play during Saturday’s preseason game against the Texans, and may not play at all during the preseason – the coaches seem to want to keep him healthy. But, from the looks of […]

Report: 49ers trade TE Asante Cleveland to Patriots for OL Jordan Devey

The San Francisco 49ers have traded second-year tight end Asante Cleveland to the New England Patriots for third-year offensive lineman Jordan Devey, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Cleveland probably wasn’t going to make the 49ers’ final roster — he was one of eight tight ends. Now the Niners have seven: 1. Vernon Davis 2. […]

Jarryd Hayne gives 49ers right answers in their game

This is my Tuesday column. Our understanding of the world changed a little bit when the 49ers played the Texans in a preseason game Saturday night. Before that game, Niners running back and former Rugby League star Jarryd Hayne seemed like an off-season storyline. Someone you talked about in June, July and August. Someone who’d […]

Hayne may never call a fair catch if he can juke a player in his face to fall down. He should take advantage of anothe... - sebnynah

49ers 10, Texans 23: Grades

Here are the grades for the 49ers 23-10 preseason loss to the Houston Texans. QUARTERBACKS: B. Colin Kaepernick was decent, completing a short pass to Anquan Boldin, overthrowing a deep pass to Torrey Smith and intentionally throwing a pass away. He clearly needs more work on his deep passes—he overthrew Smith by about 10 six yards. […]

The offense will try to take advantage of the defense, and catch them with 12 men on the field, because it will mean tha... - sebnynah

49ers-Texans preview, what you need to be watching

This is my Saturday column. Hits. That’s the main difference between preseason and training camp. In training camp players don’t hit each other — they play a slightly rougher version of two-hand touch. Coaches can’t learn much about their running game or their defense’s ability to tackle during this portion of the offseason. That’s what […]

Colin Kaepernick 2.0, an assessment of the changes

Here is my Friday column. SANTA CLARA – Through two weeks of training camp, it’s clear Colin Kaepernick has changed three key aspects of his game. Here’s what’s good and not so good about each change so far. CHANGE 1: Kaepernick is throwing with more touch. THE GOOD: Kaepernick used to throw every pass the […]
