    Recently, NFL reporter for CBS Sports, Jason La Canfora, reported hearing chatter about Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Peters' stay in Kansas City possibly being short-lived and that he expects talks to intensify next week at the NFL Combine. I recently delivered on the 49ers Webzone an article entitled: Looking at the Culture and Infrastructure Around Reuben Foster. That article helped lay the groundwork and blueprint for why I'm delivering the second installment from an intervention specialist perspective: The Reuben Foster Effect: Why the 49ers won't trade for Marcus Peters. Disclaimer: To be crystal clear, Marcus Peters isn't Reuben Foster in...

    Recently, on the 49ers Webzone, I presented and laid out an optimistic perspective on Reuben Foster while challenging the talented linebacker to take responsibility/accountability for his actions and becoming a better professional on and off the field moving forward. In light of Foster's second arrest within the last 40 days, which involves domestic violence, threats, and assault weapon charges, I am now turning my attention to the culture and infrastructure around Reuben Foster; from an intervention specialist perspective. Now hold...

    Recently, it was announced that New England Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady was the 2017 NFL's Most Valuable Player. In this article, delivered exclusively on the 49ers Webzone, I'll attempt to make a compelling and objective argument as to why Jimmy Garoppolo will be the favorite to become the NFL's 2018 MVP. Now before becoming an NFL MVP, you have to be under contract with an NFL team. And that's something the San Francisco 49ers, led by General Manager John Lynch, are working diligently to get done with pending free agent Jimmy Garoppolo and his agent, Don Yee in the next coming days (per NFL Network's Ian Rapport). Five...

    Recently, it was reported that five-time Pro Bowl cornerback Aqib Talib of the Denver Broncos was on the trading block and could very well be released if no suitors are willing to give up compensation for his services (via Pro Football Talk). Having a Pro-Bowl caliber to an elite level cornerback has eluded the 49ers for several years since the likes of Hall of Famer Deion Sanders (1994-elite Pro-Bowler and All-Pro with six interceptions), Eric Davis (1995-Pro-Bowler and All-Pro with three interceptions),...

    Recently on the Webzone, I created some buzz by asking the question: Is Allen Robinson worth a four-year, $58 million contract? I also ended the article by saying, "To be continued." Well, I'd now like to continue with the sequel: Why a Jimmy G led offense will attack defenses by committee in 2018. Having success without your top offensive target The world witnessed the New England Patriots' future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady lead his offense to a come-from-behind win after being down by 10 points in the 4th quarter against the second-best defense in the NFL and...

    Recently, Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones (the son of owner Jerry Jones) said of his high price wide receiver Dez Bryant, who signed a five-year, $70 million deal in 2015, that sometimes he is a distraction (via A.J. Perez of USA Today). The 2018 free agency period will soon be upon the San Francisco 49ers, and discussion has surfaced amongst the Forty-Niner Faithful of wanting the 49ers to take a flier on Bryant (if he were...

    2018 NFL free agency: Is wide receiver Allen Robinson Worth four-years and $58 million? Robinson has had some history with lower leg injuries and has been on injured reserve twice during his four NFL seasons. Jacksonville Jaguars' Allen Robinson was a Pro Bowl receiver in 2015. He stands at 6-foot-3 and 220 lbs., and is likely looking for something close to a four-year, $58 million deal as a pending free agent (per Rotoworld.com). The salary desired by Robinson might look familiar because it's the same contract that...

    Turning something negative into a positive: For every minor setback there's a major comeback, featuring "Reuben Foster." How we got here Prize rookie LB Reuben Foster has been in the news recently for marijuana possession (via NFL.com) and potentially stands to lose millions based on the language of his contract (per CBS Sports' Joel Corry), and a possible suspension (via NFL Network reporter...

    Recently on Niners Live, I made a strong case why Marquise Goodwin deserves a contract extension. Now I'll try to make an even stronger case for why kicker Robbie Gould deserves a contract extension. Related: Why Marquise Goodwin Deserves a Contract Extension The San Francisco 49ers and General Manager John Lynch wasted no time in signing free agent kicker Robbie Gould, who stands at 6-0 and weighs 190 lbs., to replace former Forty-Niners' kicker...

    Recently on Niners Live, we dropped: Why the 49ers should Re-sign Carlos Hyde; but Will They? And now we take it a step further: What Carlos Hyde would bring to the playoff table if re-signed in 2018. Wait, what? Playoffs?! Don't talk about playoffs! Are you kidding me? Playoffs?! I'm just hoping we can win a game, another game! (In the words of Jim Mora Sr., and no pun intended, of course). Yes, this article is about to come from a different perspective, indeed, and if you have been tuning into Niners Live you know how we move and do it... The Forty-Niners are expected to make the playoffs in 2018, so says NFL...

    Taking a look back on Elvis Dumervil's impact as a pass-rusher within defensive coordinator Robert Saleh's defense. The narrative over the last few years (since Aldon Smith) for the Forty-Niners' defense has been finding a pass-rusher that could generate consistent disruptive pressure on opposing quarterbacks, which would equate to showing up in the sack column. When General Manager John Lynch signed ex-teammate Elvis Dumervil, who stands at 6-0 and weighs 255 lbs., to a two-year deal worth $8 million...
