    With the possibility of a winning season way, way back in the rear-view mirror, evaluating the entire 49ers organization has been the priority for the team for a better part of a couple of months now. What a difference a week makes. Last week, the 49ers were the most optimistic 1-10 team I can ever remember seeing. After constant improvement with the...

    NOTE: If you're a person who believes that we should only discuss negative points about the 49ers because they are coming off yet another loss, then I'll warn you ahead of time: this article might not be for you. The 49ers have the worst group of wide receivers in the league. Isn't that what most people agreed on prior to the season?...

    As head coach Chip Kelly accurately pointed out after the 49ers 23-20 loss, "They aren't handing out participation trophies in the National Football League." Still, it was hard not to feel good about the performance of the 49ers on the road against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. In this article, I originally wrote that the Cardinals boast the...

    When you think about what the San Francisco 49ers are currently doing on the defensive side of the ball, it's all kind of amazing. Now it's not amazing in any way that's good, or productive, or promising, that's not it at all. It's amazing in the sense that it's quite possibly one of the more horrific performances we've ever seen. Make no mistake people,...

    It's been over 10 days since the last Webzone exclusive article went up and if there was any more clear indication that things are bad in the 49er football world, I dare you to find me one. We all do this truly for the love of writing and the love to the team. Neither source of motivation has made much of a muse for any of us so far this year...

    Following a disastrous 5-11 2015 season and the firing of head coach Jim Tomsula, San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York stepped up to the podium in January to address the media in an attempt to alleviate the concerns of fans that the franchise was quickly headed toward irrelevance. The mindset among the Niner Faithful was that the York family got...

    It's not a foreign concept for a professional sports franchise to tear down its roster and try to build from the ground up again. After all, players get older, they move on, and it wouldn't be realistic to think you can maintain the same exact core group for an extended period of time. Rebuilding happens, and fans have to be patient while the process plays...

    On Torrey Smith's weekly appearance on KNBR's Murph and Mac Show on Wednesday, he discussed the 45-16 loss to the Buffalo Bills. His comments about quarterback Colin Kaepernick's performance in his first start provided some valuable insight to Kaepernick, and what we might expect going forward from both Smith and Kaepernick in this...

    Everyone believes that San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke is on the hot seat. In our latest Round Table, our staff was asked when they believe Baalke might get fired. The 49ers are off to a 1-5 start and riding their first five-game losing streak since starting the 2010 season 0-5. Zain Naqvi The organization seems...

    Colin Kaepernick played well against the Buffalo Bills. There. I said it. He read the field, made quick decisions, took care of the football, and generally took what the defense gave him. He also blew apart the Bills' players brash statements that they made no adjustments to him and simply dared him to throw the ball. They certainly made it...

    For the first time since November 1, 2015, Colin Kaepernick will be the starting quarterback in a game for the San Francisco 49ers. He will be the man behind center when the team travels to Orchard Park, New York to play the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. With the 49ers low on options, he may even start for the remainder of the season. However, don't expect to...

    In our latest Round Table, our staff was asked what the San Francisco 49ers can hope to expect from newly named starting quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick, having signed a restructured contract, replaces Blaine Gabbert, who had won the offseason quarterback...

    Barely a month into the NFL season, with everything hanging in the balance, the 49ers needed to change something to try and provide some sort of spark. Well, here goes nothing... Colin Kaepernick has been named the starter at quarterback for Sunday's game...

    Towards the end of the Jim Harbaugh era in San Francisco, a disturbing pattern emerged. Anonymous sources began conveniently popping up with increasingly creative ways to cast the former coach in a negative light on his way out the door. Those anonymous sources were never identified, yet they created so much negative publicity, and dissension within the...

    "We want Kap! We want Kap!" That chant could be heard throughout Levi's Stadium as the San Francisco 49ers were well on their way to losing their fourth straight game. Head coach Chip Kelly will be under immense pressure during these ten days between games to not only bench the man who won the offseason quarterback "competition," but to start Colin...

    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...
