Report: Kaepernick wants more money than Cutler and Romo

According to the Boston Globe, Colin Kaepernick wants a contract extension that is worth as much or more than the contract extensions Jay Cutler and Tony Romo recently signed. The Cowboys gave Romo $18 million per season and $40 million guaranteed. The Bears gave Cutler $18.1 million per season and $38 million guaranteed. If you […]

Is Frank Gore done?

Frank Gore averaged a career-low 4.1 yards per carry last regular season. And he performed even worse in the playoffs, averaging just 3.4 yards per carry against the Packers, Panthers and Seahawks. Do you think Gore will average more yards per carry next season if Kendall Hunter, LaMichael James and/or Marcus Lattimore share the load? […]

There is a red flag that you are not considering. The season before Gore started strong but towards the end of the regul... - Willtalk

Can the 49ers afford not to re-sign Whitner?

Is it mandatory that the 49ers re-sign Donte Whitner? If the 49ers let him walk and replace him with a rookie, the defense probably would be vulnerable up the middle for at least the first half of the season because there would be no Whitner and no NaVorro Bowman. The 49ers would have to rely […]

Killion: “Source says Harbaugh’s act has worn thin in the locker room.”

I just read an interesting column by Ann Killion, and I’m passing it along to you. An excerpt: “One source with inside knowledge of the team says that Harbaugh’s act has worn thin in the locker room, particularly among some key ‘face of the 49ers’ type players. While the team is winning, that’s not a […]

Well put coach! I agree. We weren't even in the playoffs until this guy came around. We're considered an elite team in ... - MontanaMan16

What’s up with Boldin?

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 […]

How the 49ers could use the Dolphins’ first-round draft pick

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 admits he’s in Miami

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 […]

York, Baalke, Marathe and Capaci flying to Miami?

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 […]

Another thing about Harbaugh’s contract

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 […]

What’s a Harbaugh worth?

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 […]

Jaworski “not crazy about” Manziel

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 […]

Johnny Manziel is not a franchise QB — he is the next Matt Leinart

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 […]
