Manning wants quick results

Here is my Saturday column previewing the 49ers’ Sunday night game against the Broncos. Peyton Manning has a philosophy: Skip third down. On second down, get another first down. Manning opposes third down on principle. To beat him, a team must understand this. Some offenses play for third downs, strive to get to third-and-2 or […]

Smith or Kap? Choose carefully

This is my Saturday column. Alex Smith is better than Colin Kaepernick. Face it. Jim Harbaugh picked the wrong quarterback. The 49ers never should have traded Smith, never should have benched him in the first place. Remember how it went down?
