49ers mini-camp: Phase 2 of a laid-back offseason?

Last year’s offseason was completely different than this year’s offseason. Last year was strenuous. Jim Harbaugh made every practice extremely competitive. Players got hurt. Michael Crabtree blew out his Achilles’ tendon right away. So, Harbaugh created an open competition for the No.2 WR job. That didn’t work out so well. Quinton Patton broke his finger […]

Tim Hudson stops the drop

This is my Thursday column on Tim Hudson and the Giants. WARNING: This is a baseball column. 49ers fans — feel free to skip this. SAN FRANCISCO – Before the first big game of the Giants’ season – a 7-1 win against the Nationals – someone played “Downtown” by Frank Sinatra over the clubhouse speakers. […]

Vernon Davis puts a real threat in deep threat

This is my Wednesday column on Vernon Davis. SANTA CLARA – Vernon Davis has the 49ers in a helpless position, like a turtle trapped on its back. Davis can stay away and let the turtle squirm – miss mini-camps and training camp, hurt the offense and make the 49ers look bad – or he can […]

OTA Notes: Rough day for the passing game

SANTA CLARA — Here’s what stood out to me during Tuesday’s OTA. THE GOOD 1. Colin Kaepernick — The passing game wasn’t clicking, but Kaepernick made three beautiful throws. First, he dropped back and looked to his right, then looked to his left and hit Brandon Lloyd in the middle of the field for a […]

Why NFL offenses should call QB rollouts much more often

Who’s the best runner: Kaepernick, Wilson, Newton, Griffin or Luck?

Kap’s new deal no gamble — 49ers QB is betting on himself

This is my Thursday column on Colin Kaepernick’s contract extension. SANTA CLARA – The six-year, $126 million contract extension the 49ers gave Kaepernick seemed preposterous. Why make Kaepernick the highest-paid player in football after just 29 starts? That’s not enough data to justify paying anyone that much money. Kaepernick may turn out to be a […]

Kaepernick: “We don’t have to worry about talks or anything like that moving forward.”

SANTA CLARA — The 49ers held a press conference for Colin Kaepernick in the defensive meeting room Wednesday afternoon. Here is a transcript courtesy of the 49ers.   What kind of sense of relief does getting this done, and getting it done in June, give you going into the season? “I think everyone’s very excited […]

OTA Notes: Kaepernick misses open receivers, Lloyd impresses Harbaugh and Willis, Johnson beats Johnson for a TD, and more

SANTA CLARA – This is what stood out to me at Tuesday’s OTA. THE GOOD 1. Brandon Lloyd: Best receiver on the field by far, although Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin, Vernon Davis, Stevie Johnson and Quinton Patton weren’t there. Lloyd made the catch of the day. He was running deep toward sideline and Blaine Gabbert […]
