Kap needs instruction, not negotiation, from his coach

Here is my Thursday column on Jim Harbaugh’s logic and Colin Kaepernick’s earning potential. I had to laugh at some of the things Jim Harbaugh said Wednesday at the NFL’s owners meetings in Orlando. Harbaugh said Colin Kaepernick is “one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL,” and he deserves the big bucks. “I think […]

What makes a QB great?

What is the No.1 quality that makes a QB great? Obviously, he can’t have any major weaknesses. But there are good QBs who have no major weaknesses, too. So what makes a QB great? To me, a great QB has to make other players better. That’s the No.1 quality of a great QB. If you’re […]

Jackson timing on coach defies reason

This is my Wednesday column on what Brian Scalabrine’s demotion means. WARNING: This is a Warriors column. 49ers fans, feel free to skip this. Mark Jackson doesn’t realize how weak he made himself look. On Tuesday, Jackson dumped one of his assistant coaches – Brian Scalabrine. After dumping him, Jackson told reporters that he’s “just […]

Prediction contest

It seems obvious that the 49ers want to add a dynamic, explosive receiver to be the No.3 receiver next season. Predict which receiver the Niners will get, and explain your prediction.

Report: Eagles trying hard to trade DeSean Jackson

According to the Philadelphia Enquirer, which cites “three independent NFL sources,” the Eagles “have intensified their efforts to trade Pro Bowl receiver DeSean Jackson.” Seems to me the 49ers could trade their second third-round pick, pick No.94, to the Eagles for Jackson. Seems to me the 49ers should be able to easily outbid any other […]

DeSean can fill need for speed

This is my Wednesday  column. Yes, of course the 49ers should trade for Eagles’ wide receiver DeSean Jackson. Not even a discussion. On Tuesday, CSN Philly reported that the Eagles are shopping Jackson for a third-round pick, and that the 49ers are interested. Let me list the reasons the 49ers should make this trade: 1. […]

Should the 49ers trade for DeSean Jackson?

According to CSN Philly, the Eagles are open to trading DeSean Jackson, the Eagles would like at least a third-round pick for him, and the 49ers have contacted the Eagles about a potential trade. Do you think the 49ers should trade for Jackson? Why or why not?

Corner is the market

This is my Monday column. Here’s what the 49ers have to do in this year’s draft. Trade up. Twice. First, for a cornerback. The 49ers lost two starting corners during free agency – Carlos Rogers and Tarell Brown. The Raiders signed Brown and the Niners cut Rogers. Tramaine Brock and Chris Culliver are the best […]

New 49ers mock draft

I’m keeping this mock draft short and sweet. Pick 30: Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State. The 49ers will take the best slot cornerback available. If Roby is gone, Jason Verrett will be the pick. Kyle Fuller also is an option, but it seems doubtful he will last until the 30th pick. Pick 56: Paul Richardson, WR, […]

Baalke plays it cool

This is my Friday column on Trent Baalke. After Day 1 of free agency, I thought the 49ers’ moves were weak. Not bad, but weak. Trent Baalke didn’t really do anything. He cut Carlos Rogers, let Donte Whitner leave and replaced him with an older, cheaper safety – Antoine Bethea – traded a sixth-round pick […]

Report: Chris Cook agrees to one-year deal with 49ers

Chris Cook has agreed to a one-year deal with the 49ers, according to the Sacramento Bee. Cook is the second cornerback the 49ers have signed to a one-year contract this week. Eric Wright agreed to a one-year deal with the Niners on Tuesday. If Cook makes the team, he probably would compete with Chris Culliver […]

Jonathan Martin: “I actually just finished reading the story of Odysseus once he leaves the Trojan War.”

Jonathan Martin just had his first conference call as a 49er. Here is a transcript. Q: Was this the best-case scenario for you to continue your career? MARTIN: Absolutely. I think it worked out great, once again playing for Coach Harbaugh, once again being in the Bay Area, playing for a winning franchise, a team […]
