Alex Smith will not be flying to Seattle this week, contrary to earlier reports. That’s because the Seahawks just signed free agent quarterback Matt Flynn to a three-year, $26 million contract ($10 million guaranteed), according to Adam Schefter. If the Niners sign Peyton Manning, Smith’s final option could be to sign with the desperate Dolphins. […]
The Niners just signed wide receiver Mario Manningham to a two-year deal, according to Mike Florio. Just a few hours ago it looked like Manningham would sign with the Rams, but the Niners seem to have made a competitive offer for him, and Manningham seems to not be stupid. Manningham is a good replacement for […]
Kevin Lynch broke news this afternoon. Citing a league source, Lynch reports the Niners offered Alex Smith a three-year contract worth $24 million. What’s more, according to the source Smith wants to change agents, too. His current agent, Tom Condon, also represents Peyton Manning, the quarterback the Niners seem to really want. Condon is doing […]
Here’s another reason the 49ers should definitely sign Peyton Manning. It’s a given they would become instant Super Bowl favorites with him. We know this. But they’d also become the most watched, talked about, intriguing sports team in the world. In other words, they’d be the 49ers again. Sign the guy.

I’m trying to be open minded about the Peyton Manning debate. I want to see things from both sides. Yesterday, my dad and I came out strongly on the Pro-Peyton side. Many readers agreed with us, and many did not. Both sides had good arguments. I’ve been thinking all night, and I want to give […]
A “well-placed source” told the great Matt Maiocco that the 49ers have an offer on the table for Alex Smith and they have no interest in signing free agent Quarterback Peyton Manning, to which I say, slow down, 49ers. That’s a lot you’re asking us to accept there. Let’s break that claim down bit by […]
Here is the transcript of this morning’s Greg Cosell interview on KNBR’s Murph and Mac Show. Enjoy. Q: You told us the Ravens were a homework week – that they presented so many different problems on defense that you needed as much time as possible to prepare. That set off a little red flag in […]
