What we learned about the 49ers in Week 1

Here’s my Thursday column. Breaking down the 49ers before Week 1 this year was like trying to see San Francisco through the fog. It’s Week 2 now, and the fog has lifted. What do we see? 1. NaVorro Bowman is NaVorro Bowman Apparently, NaVorro Bowman is not a human being. He’s some other life form, […]

Alex Boone: “I think this is one of the best teams we’ve had.”

SANTA CLARA – Alex Boone spoke in the 49ers’ auditorium Monday afternoon. Here are selected quotes. Q: How has it been moving to the left side in training camp? BOONE: It’s great. It’s different, obviously, playing next to Anthony all those years. Now I go and play next to Joe. Both great tackles. Footwork’s a […]

Trent Baalke answers lots of questions

SANTA CLARA— Trent Baalke answered a few reporters’ questions in the 49ers’ media room Wednesday afternoon. Here’s a transcript of the interview. BARROWS: Has Justin Smith decided whether he will retire? BAALKE: As I said at the end of the season, I think at this stage of his career, he has earned the right to […]

Thanks, keep up the good work!... - Dee Phiant

Report: Frank Gore expected to sign three-year deal with Eagles

Frank Gore will sign a three-year contract with the Eagles according to Adam Schefter. The deal reportedly is worth $7.5 million guaranteed. It’s ironic the Eagles want Gore in their zone-read running game, considering Gore never could get acclimated to the Niners’ zone-read package with Colin Kaepernick. This signing works out perfectly for the 49ers. […]

If Frank Gore signs elsewhere, who will replace him as the 49ers’ mid-sized running back?

Trent Baalke seems to be searching for a specific type of running back to replace Frank Gore if he signs with another team. Baalke just recently signed Rugby League star Jarryd Hayne, and, according to Jason Cole, Baalke is interested in Ryan Mathews and Mark Ingram. What do Hayne, Mathews and Ingram have in common? […]

I think, as a 9ers fan, this is a sad day. But we must move on and since we do, two things need to happen. We make a STO... - Robert

Report: 49ers sign Rugby League star Jarryd Hayne to futures contract

Twenty-seven-year-old Rugby League star Jarryd Hayne just announced he has signed a futures contract with the 49ers. The contract guarantees Hayne a spot on the Niners’ 90-man offseason roster. Good, creative signing. Hayne has the physical traits of a first round pick. He is 6’2″, 226 pounds and he reportedly ran a 4.53 40-yard dash a […]

I already like Haynes for the way he celebrates his TD's! None of that Mamby-Pamby Fairy crap that we have to watch in... - Dee Phiant

This is the transcript of Jim Tomsula’s press conference from the NFL Combine, courtesy of the 49ers’ P.R. department. Opening comments: “Good afternoon and we’ll try this again. Go ahead and shoot.

49ers face key decisions in free agency

This is my Sunday column. Is it too early to predict which free agents the 49ers will re-sign this offseason? The 49ers still haven’t announced the hiring of Eric Mangini as the defensive coordinator or Geep Chryst as the offensive coordinator, and we still don’t know what schemes they plan on using. On defense will […]

Good post E. I agree.... - B7

49ers, here’s your man

This is my Wednesday column. I don’t get you, Jed. You say you know what you’re looking for and you still can’t find it. I asked you Monday what qualities the next head coach of the 49ers should have. You were prepared for that question. Right away, you said, “I want a teacher. I think […]

49ers 20, Cardinals 17: Grades

SANTA CLARA – Hey, at least the 49ers didn’t lose to both Cardinals’ backup quarterbacks this season. KAEPERNICK: B+. Played his best when it really mattered. Threw two touchdown passes and zero picks for the first time since Week 6. Also threw zero fourth-quarter touchdown passes for the 18th game in a row. Would have […]

49ers’ coaching choice important and perilous

This is my Wednesday column. Trent Baalke will move against you first, Jed. After you get rid of Jim Harbaugh, Baalke will set up an interview with someone you’re supposed to trust — some hot-shot NFL offensive coordinator, maybe Adam Gase or Josh McDaniels or Darrell Bevell. And at that interview, the coordinator will guarantee […]
