    The 49ers-Seahawks rivalry will be renewed on Sunday, albeit with the luster gone from previous matchups in the series. The Niners are playing for pride and momentum heading into the offseason, while the Seahawks are preparing for another postseason appearance. Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick led the team back from 14 points down with...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    "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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Since Colin Kaepernick's silent protest of the national anthem became a national topic, the overwhelming sentiment of those who are in opposition to his protest is that it is disrespectful to members of the United States Armed Forces. Monday morning on Mike & Mike, ESPN's nationally syndicated morning sports talk show, the two...

    The San Francisco 49ers wide receivers have absorbed their fair share of scrutiny in discussions regarding the team's potential this season. Many expected general manager Trent Baalke to draft a wide receiver early in this past April's draft, but that did not occur. The team waited until the 6th round to grab Aaron Burbridge from Michigan State, and also...

    First of all, let's be clear: the projections are bad. A perusal of the power rankings of most major publications makes it clear that pundits are predicting that the 49ers will be a really bad team. ESPN has the 49ers ranked dead last at #32 in their power rankings. Sports Illustrated has the 49ers ranked #30, and USA Today has the 49ers ranked #31. So,...

    Once it became clear that Colin Kaepernick would indeed be a San Francisco 49er in the 2016-2017 season, a large contingent of personalities from both print and television media cast him in the role of long shot for the starting quarterback position, and some insisted that it would not really be a competition at all. Not yet medically cleared to practice...
