SANTA CLARA — Jim Harbaugh was interviewed in the 49ers’ auditorium Monday afternoon. Here’s a transcript courtesy of the 49ers’ P.R. staff. Do you have an update on C Marcus Martin yet? “Yeah, it’s coming in. He had an MRI this morning and, can’t go into all of the details because I don’t know them all, but it doesn’t appear that it’s an ACL.” Two months, is that the timeframe…
SANTA CLARA — Jim Harbaugh spoke in the defensive meeting room Monday afternoon. Here is a transcript courtesy of the 49ers’ P.R. department. Just, health-wise, how did you come out of yesterday’s game, specifically CB Carlos Rogers? “Carlos is getting an MRI.” Will you have to sign anybody as an insurance policy? “We signed [CB] Perrish Cox.” You did? And, what was the corresponding move? “We had…
I’ll be on Chronicle Live this afternoon at 5 p.m. This is my first time on Chronicle Live. I’ll be on with my dad, and he’s going down.
I’m linking to my dad’s Saturday column. He drove down to Santa Clara with me this morning and he wrote on A.J. Jenkins’ decision to skip graduation and participate in the Niners rookie mini camp. I thought you’d find the column interesting. To read it, click here.
I’m linking to my pop’s column on Gregg Williams’s pre-Niners-playoff-game rant, which I posted earlier. Some of my readers argued that it wasn’t so different from other defensive coordinator speeches – that it was business as usual in football. My dad, who’s been covering the sport for over 30 years, vehemently disagrees. To read his column, click here.
The Santa Rosa Press Democrat just posted my dad’s Tuesday column. It’s about Alex Smith. My dad says it’s in Smith’s interest to re-sign with the Niners now, as in this very instant. Do not test free agency. Just sign on the dotted line, dude. If you don’t like the three-year offer, take a one-year deal, win the Super Bowl and cash out next year. To read my dad’s full…
As a prelude to the Super Bowl, my dad wrote a column comparing Joe Montana and Tom Brady. If the Patriots beat the Giants in the Super Bowl on Sunday, Brady will have won just as many Super Bowls – 4 – as Montana. Would they be equals? To read my dad’s column on the subject, clicker here. Also, I’ll be blogging during and after the Super Bowl, so come…
Some readers were upset with my father this morning over his Sunday column, and you expressed your feelings here since it’s tricky leaving comments over there at the Cohn Zohn. So, he’s responded and I’m linking it for your convenience. He discusses the charges of holding a grudge against Jim Harbaugh, being old and needing a laxative, among other things.

I gave you my season grades for the 2011-2012 Niners, now read my dad’s wrap up column. He starts by reviewing the team’s astonishing accomplishments and then he discusses where the team needs improvement, starting with head coach Jim Harbaugh. To read my dad’s column, click here.
Instead of posting the complete transcript of Jim Harbaugh’s Monday press conference, here’s my dad’s column instead. It covers all the key issues from the presser, plus it adds a few new levels of insight into the Niners’ head coach. To read my dad’s column, click here.
The Santa Rosa Press Democrat has not posted my sidebar on poor Kyle Williams yet, but they just posted my dad’s column. He puts the Niners season in perspective like only he can. He gives credit to Jim Harbaugh and Alex Smith in general, but in particular, in this game, he points out their shortcomings, which is a fair thing to do. To read my dad’s column, click here.
The Santa Rosa Press Democrat just posted my dad’s prediction column for the Niners-Giants NFC championship game. We agree that the Niners will win, but we disagree on the score. He says they’ll win by one touchdown (27-20). I say they’ll win by two (31-17). To read his reasoning, click here.
My dad wrote his column for Friday on the lexicon of Jim Harbaugh. He chronicled all of the head coach’s favorite phrases. He even grouped them by category. The Cohn Zohn feels confident this is a comprehensive lexicon, but if you discover an omission please bring it to light. To read my dad’s column click here.
The Santa Rosa Press Democrat just posted my dad’s column for Thursday, so I’m linking to it. When they post my article I’ll link to that, too. Here’s an excerpt from my dad’s column: “Alex Smith had one great game. Check that. He had one great part of one game. He needs to show it wasn’t a fluke, a one-time deal. He needs to do it again. Joe Montana and…
The Santa Rosa Press Democrat just posted my dad’s Tuesday column, so I’m linking it because I’m a good son and it’s a good column. We drove down to Santa Clara together this morning and my dad asked Harbaugh a series of questions 15 minutes into the press conference. He wrote his column on his interaction with the head coach. To read the column, click here.
My dad wrote his column on Alex Smith. In it, he gives the quarterback his due – Smith did what almost everyone said he couldn’t. He won a shootout. He led not one but two game-winning touchdown drives. And he did all this in a playoff game. To read the column, click here.
As you may know, Tuesday is the 30th anniversary of The Catch. My dad interviewed the catcher of The Catch – Dwight Clark – for his Tuesday column. Clark talks about that catch, the 1981 Super Bowl team and the current Niners. To read the column, click here.
My dad interviewed a former NFL offensive coordinator (who requested anonymity) on Alex Smith for his Sunday column. Here’s an excerpt: Q: Can Smith make all the throws? Expert: You’re asking the wrong question. It’s not if he can. But will he? To read the column, click here.
I’m linking this because it seems like a lot people prefer responding to my dad’s blogs on my blog rather than on facebook. My dad wrote a response to your responses to his column on the boringness of Jim Harbaugh. Here it is.
My dad almost died of pure boredom at Jim Harbaugh’s weekly press conference Monday in Santa Clara. This has nothing to do with Harbaugh’s quality as a coach. He is Grade A in my dad’s book. But he is relentlessly boring, and he’s boring on purpose. So my dad wrote a column on the function of boringness and rudeness in the Jim Harbaugh universe. To read a really exciting column…
