49ers OTAs: Vernon Davis makes the catch of the day

SANTA CLARA – Here’s what stood out to me from Tuesday afternoon’s OTA session. Keep in mind that most of this session took place about 75 yards away from reporters, so I can’t give you the same amount of detail I normally would. THE GOOD 1. Vernon Davis. He made the best catch of the […]

49ers OTAs: Boldin is sharp, Kaepernick is not

SANTA CLARA – Here’s what stood out to me from the 49ers’ second open OTA. THE GOOD 1. Anquan Boldin. He lined up in the slot about 90 percent of the time in 7-on-7 drills and 11-on-11 drills, and he caught 10 passes on 11 targets. He was the best offensive player on the field […]

49ers OTAs: Craig Dahl and Chad Hall stand out, Chris Culliver struggles

SANTA CLARA – Here’s the good and the not-so-good from the 49ers’ Wednesday OTA session. THE GOOD 1. Craig Dahl – He was the starting free safety, and he had the best day of all of the 49ers’ defensive backs. Dahl almost picked off Colin Kaepernick twice. First, Kaepernick tried to fire a pass to […]

The 49ers’ top 10 offseason position battles

Here are the top-10 position battles on the 49ers I’m looking forward to this offseason. Which battles interest you the most? 1. No.2 and No.3 cornerback: Carlos Rogers vs. Nnamdi Asomugha vs. Chris Culliver.

Murph and Mac interviewed Greg Cosell about Nnamdi Asomugha and Colt McCoy Wednesday morning on KNBR. Here’s what Cosell said Q: The 49ers just signed Nnamdi Asomugha. Can you evaluate him as a Raider, and then what did the film say about him as an Eagle? COSELL: I don’t think the Raider stuff is particularly […]

Grading the 49ers’ trade for Colt McCoy

How I see it: Colt McCoy basically has a one-year tryout with the 49ers who traded for him on Tuesday. McCoy has one year left on his rookie contract and if he doesn’t show anything this year, the Niners are not going to re-sign him and negotiate a larger contract for 2014. McCoy has not […]

49ers trade for backup QB Colt McCoy

The Browns reportedly have traded quarterback Colt McCoy and a sixth round pick to the 49ers for a fifth and seventh round pick. McCoy started 13 games for the Browns in 2011, a horrible team, and won four. He completed 57.2 percent of his passes and averaged 5.9 yards per attempt. He threw 14 touchdowns […]

Cosell: “The 49ers are not an explosive offense.”

Here’s the transcript of today’s Murph and Mac Q&A with NFL Films analyst Greg Cosell. Q: What do you think of long snapper Brian Jennings? COSELL: I don’t want anybody to think, “Oh my God,” but I don’t watch special teams at all. I just don’t have time. I don’t watch them at all, so […]
