Conspiracy theory

Fact No.1: The 49ers were linked publicly to five big-name wide receivers during free agency — DeSean Jackson, Golden Tate, Emmanuel Sanders, Hakeem Nicks and Julian Edelman. The Niners signed none of them. Fact No.2: The 49ers have been linked publicly to three cornerbacks who are projected to get drafted in the second or third […]

Kap needs instruction, not negotiation, from his coach

Here is my Thursday column on Jim Harbaugh’s logic and Colin Kaepernick’s earning potential. I had to laugh at some of the things Jim Harbaugh said Wednesday at the NFL’s owners meetings in Orlando. Harbaugh said Colin Kaepernick is “one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL,” and he deserves the big bucks. “I think […]

DeSean can fill need for speed

This is my Wednesday  column. Yes, of course the 49ers should trade for Eagles’ wide receiver DeSean Jackson. Not even a discussion. On Tuesday, CSN Philly reported that the Eagles are shopping Jackson for a third-round pick, and that the 49ers are interested. Let me list the reasons the 49ers should make this trade: 1. […]

49ers trade for Johnathan Martin

The Miami Dolphins just tweeted that they have traded OT Johnathan Martin to the 49ers. The Dolphins will receive a seventh-round pick from the Niners in 2015 in Martin makes the Niners’ opening-day roster in 2014, according to CBS Sports. In a way, you saw this one coming. The Dolphins wanted to trade Martin. Martin […]

49ers stock report

Here is my Wednesday column. Here is the current stock report of six prominent 49er figures, letting you know if their stock is up or down. Jim Harbaugh: Stock down For eight consecutive years, his stock was up, up, up. That trend ended Jan. 19, the day Harbaugh lost the NFC Championship to the Seahawks […]

Report: Harbaugh works out QB Garoppolo

The day after reports surfaced that Colin Kaepernick wants a massive contract extension, Jim Harbaugh privately worked out Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who projects to be a second-round pick. What do you think this means? Do you think the 49ers are trying to put pressure on Kaepernick and to take away his leverage? Do […]

Harbaugh: “I get paid extremely well. Jed York has always been square dealing with me. I don’t think about that as an issue.”

Sports Illustrated recently interviewed Jim Harbaugh, and he denied that he wants a contract extension, that he wants more power and that there is friction between him and Trent Baalke. Here’s a Harbaugh quote from the interview: “I have never been a guy that wants to get extensions. If the guy at the top is […]

Killion: “Source says Harbaugh’s act has worn thin in the locker room.”

I just read an interesting column by Ann Killion, and I’m passing it along to you. An excerpt: “One source with inside knowledge of the team says that Harbaugh’s act has worn thin in the locker room, particularly among some key ‘face of the 49ers’ type players. While the team is winning, that’s not a […]

How the 49ers could use the Dolphins’ first-round draft pick

If the Dolphins make a bad decision and trade their top draft picks for Jim Harbaugh, who should the 49ers draft with the Dolphins first-rounder, No.19? If he’s healthy, I say the 49ers should take Marqise Lee. If Lee is not healthy, I say the Niners should take Allen Robinson. But if Kelvin Benjamin is […]

Jed York admits he’s in Miami

Jed York confirmed on twitter that he did fly to Miami today, but Trent Baalke and Paraag Marathe did not go with him according to York. York apparently will attend an NFL meeting in Miami on Monday, although I do not know what the nature of that meeting will be. I can’t find anything about […]

Another thing about Harbaugh’s contract

To those of you who say the 49ers should just pay Jim Harbaugh because of what he has done the past three seasons compared to how inept the club was with previous head coaches: You also should realize that Harbaugh and his agent had an opportunity when negotiating the initial contract to build escalators into […]

What’s a Harbaugh worth?

Here is my Wednesday column on Jim Harbaugh. Under no circumstances should the 49ers give Jim Harbaugh a contract extension this offseason. Let him play out the final two years of his deal. Or let him win a Super Bowl before giving him a raise. Apparently, Harbaugh wants to be the highest-paid head coach in […]
