    In the 49ers' 12-9 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, free safety Jimmie Ward returned from his hamstring injury, and it didn't take long for him to get back to work. On 3rd-and-8, on Seattle's first possession of the game, quarterback Russell Wilson dumped the ball to running back C.J. Prosise who quickly got up field for a nine-yard gain and a first...

    The day after a disheartening opening day loss provides ample opportunity to go on and on about how the sky is falling, the team is even worse than we thought, the season is over, etc. That's a rather easy thing to do. Let's also remember the opening game the past two years when the 49ers played extremely well and blew out the Vikings and Rams by a combined...

    When Eric Reid joined the 49ers as a first-round pick in 2013, he was fearless, and perhaps a slight bit reckless. Maybe it's better to say that he played with reckless abandon. By all accounts, Reid is a very cerebral player, but he was a big hitter in college, and he brought that same mentality to the NFL. However, NFL players are bigger and much more...

    When Colin Kaepernick opted out of the final year of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers following a meeting with new general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan, there was an abundance of speculation about what that would mean for his career going forward. When he went through the entire offseason unsigned, while a number of...

    Josh Gordon is a name forgotten by most NFL fans, but one that has almost certainly come up in nearly every front office in the NFL at some point this offseason, even if only to dismiss the possibility of signing him. To dismiss him though, you must first acknowledge him. He is still under contract with the Cleveland Browns, but reports have indicated that...

    There are a lot of people with significant public platforms trying to convince anyone who'll listen that regarding Colin Kaepernick, don't believe your own eyes and don't believe your own ears. Michael Lombardi of The Ringer is the latest to join the circus. On the latest episode of "The NFL Show" on The Ringer, Lombardi said,...

    Newly hired 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan held their introductory press conference on Thursday, and quickly dispelled the popular notion that it is a foregone conclusion that quarterback Colin Kaepernick will not be on the team during the 2017 season. "Colin reached out and we plan on visiting, that's something...

    When Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee suggested that Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan may want to keep Colin Kaepernick around if he becomes the San Francisco 49ers' next head coach, the response was predictable. It was split between...

    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...

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...
