What kind of offensive linemen will the 49ers look for this year at the NFL Combine? It starts Thursday. Trent Baalke typically looked for behemoths who couldn’t move particularly well — think Mike Iupatia and Anthony Davis. John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan probably will look for lighter, quicker offensive linemen. Check out Shanahan’s O-linemen on […]
Deleting Tom Rathman from the 49ers’ coaching staff was the right move. You’re out, Tom. This has nothing to do with the type of person Rathman is or his quality as a running backs coach. He’s an excellent coach and was a fabulous fullback for the 49ers and the Raiders. He has a great history. […]

The defendant has […]

Were restricted by the lateness of his hire, as other assistant coaches took jobs elsewhere while Shanahan still was coaching the Atlanta Falcons offense during the playoffs. 2. Mostly worked with Shanahan […]
The 49ers could have roughly $100 million in cap space this offseason if Colin Kaepernick opts out of his contract or gets cut. Name five free agents you think the 49ers will sign and explain why each of those five players will choose to come here. Be realistic.
John Lynch said something that made Kyle Shanahan uncomfortable. Before I tell you what that was, let me tell you about Lynch and Shanahan. Both are blank slates. Shanahan, the 49ers’ new head coach, has never been a head coach. He has been an offensive coordinator, a successful one. Jed York believes Shanahan’s success will […]
