Shanahan on the 49ers’ new defense: “(It) starts with the safeties and the corners.”

As we make our mock drafts and try to figure which players the 49ers will take next month, I want to turn your attention to an interview Kyle Shanahan did with Murph and Mac on KNBR in February. During the interview, Murph asked Shanahan about the defensive coordinator, Robert Saleh, and the type of defense he […]

Jim Harbaugh wants peanuts

What is Jim Harbaugh doing this offseason? Let’s find out how our favorite former 49ers coach of the past few years is spending his time. “Just have a craving for peanuts,” Harbaugh recently told GQ Magazine. “And shouting to get peanuts from the vending machine. Kind of channeling the ballpark guy: GET YOUR PEANUTS! PEANUTS […]

49ers post-free-agency mock draft 2.0

1 Now that I realize the Niners are making a run at the playoffs, these are the picks I think they will make. Remember, this is a fluid process. Round 1, pick No. 2:  Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State. The best corner to come out of college since Marcus Peters in 2015. Round 2, pick No. […]

49ers still have work to do in offseason; here’s the list

… The 49ers’ focus during free agency has been signing veterans on offense. This is smart. Kyle Shanahan’s system is complicated. Young players take more than half a season to learn it. So, by signing veterans — especially ones who have played for Shanahan and already know his system — the team eliminated the learning […]

Dwight Clark: “I have ALS.”

This is so sad. Sunday Night, two-time Super-Bowl-Champion Dwight Clark announced he has amyotrophic lateral sclerosis — ALS. Here’s his written statement, courtesy of the 49ers P.R. department: “In September of 2015, I started feeling weakness in my left hand. I was mildly paying attention to it because since my playing days, I’ve constantly had […]

49ers aim for playoffs? It isn’t as farfetched as you think

1 I want to tweak my opinion of the 49ers moves this offseason. I’ve been hard on the team since free agency started. Coming into it, I automatically thought long-term. I figured John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan would take the patient approach to rebuilding the roster. They inherited a two-win team, and both signed six-year […]

49ers sign LB Dekoda Watson

The San Francisco 49ers just announced they’ve signed linebacker Dekoda Watson to a three-year contract. He played for 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh in 2014. Watson is 29, he was a seventh-round draft pick in 2010 and has started just seven games in his career. The 49ers probably signed him to play special teams. So far, […]

Grading the 49ers’ roster moves in free agency

The 49ers have signed 15 free agents so far this offseason. What will these players bring to the team, and what won’t they bring? Let’s grade each signing. 1. FB Kyle Juszczyk — 4 years, $21 million. I love this one. Juszczyk is the best fullback in the NFL and will be just 26 years […]
