    When Eric Reid joined the 49ers as a first-round pick in 2013, he was fearless, and perhaps a slight bit reckless. Maybe it's better to say that he played with reckless abandon. By all accounts, Reid is a very cerebral player, but he was a big hitter in college, and he brought that same mentality to the NFL. However, NFL players are bigger and much more...

    Preseason football is often a mixed bag for spectators. On the one hand, you're tickled pink to have the NFL back on living room television. However, the meat hook reality is the football you're watching is a glorified scrimmage with the projected starters playing hard enough not to get hurt. Competition among the second, third, and fourth team players is...

    With one game of the preseason in the bag, 49ers fans were able to get their first views of the 2017 squad. Despite some solid play from back-ups against other back-ups, this year does not figure to be too promising from a wins and losses standpoint. However, this should not be surprising for a squad coming off a 2-14 season and entering the first year of a...

    Quarterback Kirk Cousins will likely be a free agent after the upcoming season, and may have his sights set on joining the San Francisco 49ers. Unfortunately, Cousins -- who will be 30 years old at the beginning of the 2018 season -- is still a developmental project who expects to be paid like a franchise quarterback. This is the final...

    49ers wide receiver Kendrick Bourne had a strong showing during San Francisco's preseason victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. Clearly on the bubble, what are his chances for making the Niners' 53-man roster this season? San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Kendrick Bourne has emerged as something of a hot topic during training camp and early...

    Preseason games often have the feel of a highly controlled scrimmage with the first team giving enough effort to clean out the offseason rust. Once they leave the field, fans get to watch coaches test strategies and players battle for a roster position. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and defensive coordinator Robert Saleh have a to-do list longer...

    The 49ers held their annual open practice for fans today and the turnout was large - an estimated 25,319 fans attended the practice held at Levi's Stadium. This definitely wasn't anything like last year at Kezar Stadium, which was neat in its own right because of the location, but the football played there that day was downright awful. This...

While it's uncertain how long he'll be out, let's look at some possible replacement options.

    The blood that keeps a business alive is the customer experience. It's as true for a small non-profit as it is for a billion-dollar professional sports franchise. Over the last three seasons, the customer experience for San Francisco 49ers fans ranked just a few notches below a buying a used toilet mat on Craigslist. With some fans paying more...

    Prior to Colin Kaepernick's hot start in the midst of their last Super Bowl run, the 49ers had spent more than a decade without a proven quarterback. You could make the argument that after nearly two decades of leadership from two of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, the 49ers were due for a lull. In life, there are a million what-ifs, and no one can...

    San Francisco 49ers safety Lorenzo Jerome has made some noteworthy plays over the first two days of training camp. With depth an issue at the position, and Jimmie Ward injured, how will Jerome's efforts impact the regular-season depth chart? Undrafted free agents are rarely storylines at NFL training camps. But this isn't the case for San...

    When Colin Kaepernick opted out of the final year of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers following a meeting with new general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan, there was an abundance of speculation about what that would mean for his career going forward. When he went through the entire offseason unsigned, while a number of...

    Every February football season dies and every July it is born again. There are just a few short hours left until the polished gold helmets sparkle under the Santa Clara sun. Nary the sound of plastic pads echoing off the glass luxury suites at Levi's Stadium and we're already knee deep in bold predictions on the final San Francisco 49ers...

    As the dust settled on the dumpster fire that was the San Francisco 49ers' 2016 season, very few positives stood out amongst the rubble. As a team, it's hard to find silver linings in a 2-14 debacle, as it tends to be a collective effort when your franchise reaches those depths of ineptitude. Still, there were some solid individual efforts that shouldn't...

Part one will focus on Brian Hoyer, part two will focus on Matt Barkley, and part three will focus on CJ Beathard. The current offseason for the 49ers, for lack of a better term, is wild. Coming off of a 2-14 season, the 49ers fired head coach Chip Kelly and...
