    Dear Jed York, Rumors are swirling around that Jim Harbaugh and Company are quickly on their way out the door after the 2014 season. Tales of dysfunction and turmoil seem to fill up my news feed on a daily basis with stories of discontent with Harbaugh. Allegedly Trent Baalke and Jim Harbaugh don't see eye to eye on personal decisions at times....

    Rather than breakdown the latest meltdown by our beloved team, I think an honest and frank look at the organization at this very moment just feels right. Look, I bleed Red and Gold like the rest of you. I've loved this organization for more than two decades and through the ups and downs I have given my honest support. The key word in that last sentence...

    Every fan approaches game day a little different, especially game day when you know you are going to the stadium. For most of us, going to see our favorite team is something we only are able to do once or twice a year because geography, timing, and even escalating ticket prices make it hard for the average fan to go to games week in and week out.

    All of that preseason talk of the demise of the 49ers might have just been a bit premature don't you think? True, we only have a small one week sample to look at and the matchup was favorable, but the 49ers were clearly the better team on Sunday.

    The growing dilemma of Alex Boone seems to be a central story line of the offseason and as the 49ers near the end of training camp there has been no real progress made. There were reports that a contract offer was made to Boone that would have made him one of the top 15 paid guards, but this was rejected. Meanwhile, Pro-bowl guard Mike Iupati is entering a...

    For the most part, the 49ers have done a great job of drafting over the past few years. There have been some head scratchers (A.J. Jenkins?) and some that just haven't panned out, but that is life in the NFL. Find me a team that hits 100% on every pick every year and I will buy you a steak dinner. What the 49ers have been doing over the past few seasons in...

    For the first time in the Harbaugh/Baalke era the team's defense is in a bit of flux, particularly the secondary. Sure there were a lot of question marks leading into Harbaugh's first season with the additions of Carlos Rodgers and Donte Whitner. However, Rogers and Whitner for the most part were acceptable contributors to their previous teams. Now as the...
