    The San Francisco 49ers have a major issue at the quarterback position. In reality, it's been there for some time, but I guess there were enough games being won that it could be swept under the rug. We labeled the poor play as just a young player who was developing. Well that "development" is in it's fourth year now, and the results should be a lot better...

    Welcome to 'First and Goal'. This week we'll take a closer look at the debacle at Heinz Field, a game that appeared to be over somewhere in the second quarter.

    The 49ers' offense stymied the Vikings with elements of their personnel and playbook that they had not shown in the preseason. The offense predominately leaned upon the zone blocking scheme (ZBS), as they did during the preseason, but they did so with an unanticipated dependence upon a personnel grouping that required three tight ends. The 13 personnel...

    This was the most satisfying week 1 victory I've watched since the 49ers beat the Packers at Lambeau in 2012. Nevermind the fact that Berman and Dilfer calling a game is positively brutal in every way, this was fun to watch and sorely needed. My personal enjoyment comes partly because I live in Minnesota and the misguided Viking-Hype Machine...

    Ever since Colin Kaepernick became the 49ers' starting quarterback in 2012, the football world has been enamored with his athleticism, both fans and critics alike. After all, watching Kaepernick take off down the field is like witnessing a long-striding gazelle bound across open plains: it's a rare display of natural talent. It's this same talent that has...

    49ers starting quarterback Colin Kaepernick has had a pretty lousy preseason. 13 pass attempts have yielded only 5 completions for 40 yards plus he's been sacked 3 times, once for a safety, and fumbled once. He's looked as dangerous as ever running the ball, gaining 62 yards on 4 carries, but that's been mostly on scrambles out of broken pass plays when the...

    The truth of the matter is that Colin Kaepernick is a misunderstood soul. Those who know him closely say that he's a humble, quiet, hard-working guy who just wants to play football at the highest level possible. He has been heavily involved with the children's charity Camp Taylor, helping children...

    Now that the preseason is officially in the books, the 49ers can finally turn to getting back to real football. Most of us can agree that this has been one of the craziest offseasons for the organization in at least a decade and that is the biggest reason that nearly the entire sporting world is not expecting much out of our beloved 49ers. I...

    There are a number of 53-man roster projections out there, so why not one more? The San Francisco 49ers have one final exhibition game to play. On Thursday night, the 49ers coaching staff and general manager Trent Baalke will get a final look at their roster as they face the San Diego Chargers at Levi's Stadium. After that, the 49ers will begin to trim...

    The San Francisco 49ers have a number of players attempting comebacks from ACL injuries. The most well known of the group is linebacker NaVorro Bowman. Here is a list of the remaining players on the roster, with some likely to make the team and others still fighting for a spot. Of course, this does not include players like wide receiver Chuck Jacobs, who...

    As preseason progresses towards a close, we are getting glimpses of what the 49ers will look like in the 2015 NFL season. It is clear that this team is much different than in years past - not only from a roster standpoint but also a coaching standpoint. In this final preseason edition of Mr. Fix It, I will be breaking down special teams and coaching to see...

    San Francisco 49ers' head coach Jim Tomsula named his starting offensive line today, and for the most part it's pretty much what you'd expect. Joe Staley and Alex Boone were givens at left tackle and left guard respectively. Marcus Martin will fill in at center until Daniel...

    After the third preseason game drew to a close in Denver, Jim Tomsula stated that the staff had seen a lot from the collected offensive linemen on the roster, and that they were close to deciding upon the starting five for the regular season. Reports have claimed that the staff had decided upon a starting lineup on Sunday and informed the players on Monday....

    While Jarryd Hayne has been making a habit of burning up the field, Coach Jim Tomsula has been doing his best to put out the flames. Taking to the podium after the 49ers' second preseason game, Tomsula tried to temper expectations, saying that Hayne "Still has a long way to go." It was an admirable, if not futile, attempt. The bandwagon for the...

    I've watched too much football over the years to put much faith in pre-season performance as an indicator of actual success. There are simply too many variables in play to ever truly know what it will translate to when the games start counting and records are kept. Nevertheless, these 49ers probably had the most psychologically beneficial (for the fans...

    Prior to the start of the 2015 preseason, running back Jarryd Hayne was viewed as a long shot to make the San Francisco 49ers' 53-man roster. After just two exhibition matchups, the former Rugby League superstar has rebranded himself as a fan-favorite member of the 49ers. In Sunday's 23-6 victory over the Dallas Cowboys at Levi's Stadium,...

    The defense looked dominant. Special teams were inspiring. The offense showed the ability to grind field and eat clock, while transitioning to a rushing attack that appears to be dominated by zone running. The 49ers put together the type of game they needed to, in order to quiet outside concerns and build momentum toward the regular season. And the field...
