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 […]
Today my dad wrote his column about why Trent Baalke has to be the NFL executive of the year, and about his dead-mackerel stare. He points out how Baalke’s key additions to the defense have elevated it from good to great, and he also points out how his dead-mackerel stare can sometimes look more like […]

This isn’t news, it’s the story of when I was seven-years-old and I met Steve Young. If you feel this is self indulgent, please read something else. If you have a meeting-a-49er story too, please share it in the comment section. It was 1995 and it was towards the beginning of the season after the […]
I just got back from a walk around the neighborhood with my dad, and on that walk I asked him this loaded question: You are the GM of the 49ers, and there is an NFL expansion draft, and every player who’s ever played the game is 22-years-old and draft-eligible, but you know what they are […]
My dad wrote a short blog today from training camp and I’m linking to it here. In it he describes how Jim Harbaugh coaches the quarterbacks, meaning mostly Colin Kaepernick. I gave a little description yesterday, but I thought you’d like to read my dad’s take on Harbaugh. He also raises this question: Is it […]
