    In our latest Round Table, our staff was asked if San Francisco 49ers quarterback Blaine Gabbert should be benched following three weeks of play. Gabbert has completed 55.2-percent of his passes and averaged 177.3 yards, a touchdown, and an interception per game. That's an average passer rating of about 69.4. Zain Naqvi Bench...

    We have to find something positive to point to, don't we? Well, maybe we don't have to, but let's try anyway. That's not an easy task at all considering the steep decline in production of the 49ers in all facets of the game in the past two games. Sunday's 37-18 loss in Seattle was the exclamation point. If you wanted to place blame on the defense for...

    It was another game in the Pacific Northwest, and it was another embarrassing loss for the 49ers. The theme has become all too common in the past few years when going up to Seattle: unprepared team, bad defense, really bad offense, blowout losses and Pete Carroll joyfully giggling and skipping down the Seahawks' sideline. The last time the 49ers won in...

    Last Week: 6-10. Oof. Yeah, I know. The "magic 8-ball" games really stuck it in and broke it off last week. Ugh. But hey...if this was baseball, I'd be battling .375! If Week 2 taught us anything, it's that conventional wisdom doesn't count for much in the NFL these days. The Bills jettisoned OC Greg Roman after their defense...

    After the first two games of the season, three of the four 49ers' starting defensive backs are ranked in the top 10 at their respective positions according to Pro Football Focus. Eric Reid and Antoine Bethea are the #3 and #7 ranked safeties respectively, and Jimmie Ward is the #9 ranked cornerback. Tramaine Brock ranks in the middle of the pack. Of 64...

    Audrey Rose Walker is a living, breathing miracle. You see, Audrey wasn't supposed to be inspiring people, but she's doing so everyday. She wasn't supposed to be a walking example of courage, but here she is. In fact, Audrey wasn't even supposed to survive her birth, but today she's an amazing 9-year old girl. When Jim and Heather Walker went...

    Another football season is upon us, and Week 1 is in the books. Between the nearly incessant footage of Cam getting smacked in the head, Kap's National Anthem controversy, the excitement of a game winning 2-point conversion, and a 3 touchdown rally from Alex Smith, the season's opening week did not disappoint. Week 2 kicks off tonight, and...

    "I know the 49ers are bad." Dan LeBatard, star of Highly Questionable on ESPN spoke those words on Tuesday when the question was posed as to whether Monday night's 28-0 49ers victory over the Rams was because the Rams are a bad team, or the 49ers are a good team. LeBatard seemed to opt for none of the above, asserting that both teams are...

    The 49ers began the Chip Kelly Era by pitching a 28-0 shut out against the Los Angeles Rams. Kelly became the 6th straight 49ers head coach to win the season opener in his first season with the team. The Niners have now won their last 6 regular season openers, the longest current streak in the NFL. No one really knew what to make of the Chip...

    Of thirty-one Week One starting NFL quarterbacks on teams other than the 49ers, only one posted fewer yards per attempt than quarterback Blaine Gabbert: Los Angeles Rams quarterback Case Keenum. Both quarterbacks attempted 35 passes during their Monday night opening matchup. Gabbert averaged 4.86 yards per yards per attempt, while Keenum...

    Coming into Monday's opening tilt vs. the Los Angeles Rams, the San Francisco 49ers came into the 2016 regular season confident that they had significantly upgraded their roster from the group that went 5-11 last year under Jim Tomsula. One notable exception was the wide receiver position. The 49ers allowed Anquan Boldin, their leading receiver...

    By now, if you're a 49ers fan, you've probably combed the internet and read every San Francisco 49ers season preview that you could possibly find. With that in mind, there's very little that I could write that you probably haven't already read regarding the upcoming season from a broad perspective. However, I'll bet no one has rapped it to you...

    On the eve of the 49ers first regular season game of 2016, the team faces more questions than it has answers. We can only hope that this season will prove those answers. This season will be different for the 49ers - that's what we're telling ourselves. It can't be worse than last year's debacle. The team went 5-11 last year but was clearly...

    Can a week one game be a "must-win" game for an NFL team? By definition, of course not. For the 49ers, however, it just may be the case. For the second year in a row, the 49ers face the worst possible scenario for their first two games of the season. They open up against the Los Angeles Rams in the second game of the traditional Monday Night...

    In our latest Round Table, our staff makes their predictions on the San Francisco 49ers' 2016 record and share their reasoning for their predictions. Stewart M. Cockrell The 5-11 2015 49ers stole a couple victories that inflated their record a bit and while I don't think this team will contend against top tier teams, this team...

    On 3rd and 8, from the 15 yard line, in the first quarter of Thursday Night's San Francisco 49ers preseason game vs. the San Diego Chargers, quarterback Colin Kaepernick took the snap, dropped back, and fired a 14-yard pass to wide receiver Dres Anderson in between three Chargers defenders, who all flailed helplessly at the ball as it struck Anderson in the...

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been protesting what he calls "unjust" actions in this country by refusing to stand during the pre-game National Anthem. And his protest will continue. "I'll continue to sit," said Kaepernick on Sunday. "I'm going to continue to stand with the people that are being oppressed. To me this is something that...

    I do not pretend to speak for all veterans. I was never one of the troops who aspired to retire after a full and lengthy career in the Army. I enlisted following the 9/11 attacks because I was angry that our country and its civilians had been attacked, and I had every intention of being part of the effort to ensure that a subsequent attack would not occur....

    Along with the offensive line, the 49ers' wide receiver group as a whole has been arguably the most criticized unit on the team since the end of the Jim Harbaugh era. Now, with the sudden influx of talent on the offensive line, the wide receivers find themselves standing alone as the perceived weak link, and the group most likely to prevent a return to...

    Colin Kaepernick started his career under ideal circumstances. The second-year signal caller was inserted midseason into a stacked San Francisco 49ers roster that was under the instruction of a top-notch coaching staff. Operating in a league that didn't know how to defend him, the initial results were astounding as Kaepernick used his...
