    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...

    This is the first in a three part series examining the current 49ers quarterbacks. 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...

    San Francisco 49ers fans who watched Joe Montana and Steve Young are forever spoiled when it comes to who is barking signals behind center. Our expectations are higher than any other fan in the NFL; we expect greatness, MVP awards, perfect three-step drops from feet in LA Gear cleats, passes that hit slant routes in stride and hanging 55 points on all Super...

    I know that sounds like an ironic question and in reality many of us would likely wonder why it is even a question worth asking. However, as we are close to the eve of training camp, the idea of the comparison might be a fair one. As most of us 49ers fans will recall, going into the 2011 season there was a lot of uncertainty about Alex Smith and his future...

    There are a lot of new faces on the San Francisco 49ers roster. No team has had as much turnover as the 49ers this offseason. With a few exceptions like wide receiver Jeremy Kerley and defensive tackle Chris Jones, the 49ers allowed most of their unrestricted free agents to walk. New head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch are...

    It's time to give credit where credit is due. Too often in history we forget the important players who do the dirty work inside the trenches. How many times have you heard a fan compliment the offensive line after the offense scored a touchdown? Sure there's recognition when someone pulls off a magnificent block that absolutely levels a defender in pursuit....

    We are, Gentle Fan, but mere weeks away from the actual start of the 2017 NFL season. Right now, we all trudge through the hot doldrums of July; bored with baseball, overheated from summer backyard projects and skin slathered in thick 110 SPF sunscreen. And Canadian football? Talk not to me of blasphemy, man; I'd strike the person who allowed...

    The San Francisco 49ers have had some of the greatest players of all time suit up for the franchise. Members of the offense have put up record-breaking numbers, while the defense has stymied opposing offenses to the point of frustration and tears. But what if you could take the best players from different positions, no matter the era, to make one super...

    The San Francisco 49ers are going through a major roster overhaul this offseason, which opens up the door for trade possibilities before the start of the 2017 season. Here are three players the Niners should consider moving before Week 1. San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch has already turned over...

    San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan coached the NFL's best offense in 2016. We dig into the statistics, which tell us that in Shanahan's offense, first down is the most important down. When the San Francisco 49ers signed head coach Kyle Shanahan to a...

    Despite a massive offseason turnaround, the San Francisco 49ers are still projected to be very bad in 2017. Looking at Vegas odds and the upcoming schedule, what's a realistic win total for the Niners this season? Well, anything better than a 2-14 record would be a major improvement for the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. Niners...

    While many questioned the selection of quarterback C.J. Beathard in the third round, the general consensus among analysts and writers was that the San Francisco 49ers had a pretty good draft. In fact, if you consider that it was the first led by general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan, it appeared to be a great draft. Lynch didn't look...

    If I'm going to watch the Cleveland Browns, then it might as well be a history-making comeback victory, complete with the ingredients of a Shakespearian drama. The...

    In many ways, the current state of the San Francisco 49ers roster is the perfect storm for overlooked college prospects who may have been snubbed on draft day. Every year teams whiff on securing the services of some very talented prospects because an injury, poor workout, or some other short-sighted reason clouds their judgment. While it's frustrating not...

    As the final gun echoed from the glassy suite tower at Levi's Stadium, speculation on the 2017 quarterback roster for the San Francisco 49ers shifted into hyperdrive. We knew it was possible that the position would have all new faces, but it became a question of whom. The rumor mill spilled over with theories, though many leaned toward Kirk...
