    "Nothing I'm going to say is going to be satisfactory," said San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York. That statement came out of his mouth three times during what has become an annual attempt to save face for three years running. The statement is not untrue. Nothing York said was satisfactory. He was grilled during his Monday morning press conference, at times...

    Following a disastrous 5-11 2015 season and the firing of head coach Jim Tomsula, San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York stepped up to the podium in January to address the media in an attempt to alleviate the concerns of fans that the franchise was quickly headed toward irrelevance. The mindset among the Niner Faithful was that the York family got...

    For the first time since November 1, 2015, Colin Kaepernick will be the starting quarterback in a game for the San Francisco 49ers. He will be the man behind center when the team travels to Orchard Park, New York to play the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. With the 49ers low on options, he may even start for the remainder of the season. However, don't expect to...

    "We want Kap! We want Kap!" That chant could be heard throughout Levi's Stadium as the San Francisco 49ers were well on their way to losing their fourth straight game. Head coach Chip Kelly will be under immense pressure during these ten days between games to not only bench the man who won the offseason quarterback "competition," but to start Colin...

    There are a number of intriguing battles to keep track of as the San Francisco 49ers kick off training camp this weekend. Picking just five was difficult as there are more worth mentioning. For example, the battle at tight end could be interesting with former fullback Bruce Miller now in the mix. He has reportedly looked solid, especially...

    Over the span of 25 days, San Francisco 49ers beat writer Chris Biderman of Niners Wire ranked, in his opinion, the team's top 25 players. Any ranking is very subjective and will differ from person-to-person based on their own opinion. Even with our own staff,...

    Being the fairly slow portion of the NFL offseason, there are a lot of player rankings going on right now. One more couldn't hurt. In our latest Round Table, we asked our team of writers to rank who they felt were the top five players currently on the San Francisco 49ers roster. It is a highly debatable topic, especially once you get past the top two names...

    The San Francisco 49ers kicked off organized team activities today. It was an opportunity for many 49ers players to get introduced to the fast pace of Chip Kelly practices. There are a lot of new players on the roster as well as some that went through the disappointing 5-11 2015 season, which resulted in the ousting of the previous coaching...

    In the past week, two trades have taken place resulting in new teams at the top of the draft order, almost guaranteeing that the top two quarterbacks in the NFL Draft are gone within the first two selections. The Los Angeles Rams have taken over the top spot from the Tennessee Titans and, most recently, the Philadelphia Eagles have taken the number two spot...

    The San Francisco 49ers own the seventh overall selection in the NFL Draft, which kicks off later this month. With so many needs on the team, it is tough to say for sure what position the 49ers will address with their top choice. Whatever happens with the six selections ahead of San Francisco, there will be great talent available when they are finally on...

    To say that Mike Florio's agenda and thought process is rather tiresome would be an understatement. His latest article for Pro Football Talk states that San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick, who...

    It wasn't too long ago that the San Francisco 49ers reestablished themselves as the envy of the NFL. They were an organization that seemed to be doing all the right things and headed in the right direction. Things changed a couple of years ago when news started to leak about a rift between management and then head coach Jim Harbaugh, who was...

    We took a look at over 90 online mock drafts to determine the favorite for the San Francisco 49ers seventh overall selection in the 2016 NFL Draft next month. If you have been looking at any mock drafts in recent weeks, you have noticed that an overwhelming number of them are not only leaning toward a specific position for the 49ers, but a specific...

    The San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos, Cleveland Browns, and quarterback Colin Kaepernick all appear to be involved in a stare down with each waiting for someone to flinch. The New York Jets are quietly observing, waiting for the right opportunity to jump in. Each of the teams would like to have Kaepernick on their roster for the upcoming season. The...

    The San Francisco 49ers have a lot of holes to fill on their roster. A lot. They are a team depleted by coaching changes, poor drafting, free agent signings, and surprise retirements. So how do the 49ers even begin to restock their roster that has been exhausted of the deep talent it had just a few years ago? Having a healthy stock of cash to spend and an...

    One of the last positions on an NFL roster that you want to have up in the air is the quarterback position. Yet here we are. Just a day ago, comments by new San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly made it sounds like all the rumors of Colin Kaepernick's desire to flee for another team were unfounded. Kelly was excited to work with Kaepernick and the day...

    On the eve of Super Bowl 50, a 46-person selection committee sat in a room and debated until the final roster of that year's Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees is determined. It happens every year. The committee itself consists of a media representative from each pro football city, one representative of the Pro Football Writers of America and 13 at-large...

    Around this time a year ago, newly hired head coach Jim Tomsula fumbled his way alongside San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York and general manager Trent Baalke through an awkward introductory press conference. Chip Kelly's introductory press conference today was the exact opposite. He spoke clearly, was humorous at times, and showed a genuine understanding of...

    On Monday, writer John Croston wrote a piece that asked if San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula deserved to return in 2016. While he personally would like to see a new coaching staff come aboard, for numerous reasons, he doesn't believe that will happen. On...

    It feels like QB Colin Kaepernick is being set up to be the fall guy for the San Francisco 49ers' 2015 season as Jim Harbaugh was in 2014. The 49ers, who are sitting at the bottom of the NFC West, are in disarray right now. It was expected. It was predicted. However, for the Niner Faithful, there was still hope that a coaching reboot would revitalize this...
