Jerry Rice accidentally gives Collinsworth the finger on national TV

Aug 8, 2010 at 11:15 PM--


In case you missed it, Jerry Rice gave Sunday Night Football announcer Cris Collinsworth the finger during NBC's broadcast of the Hall of Fame game on Sunday Night Football. However, it was most likely accidental given Rice's classy nature. Yet it was still humorous to see.

While interviewing Rice, Collinsworth remarked that Jerry had 207 career touchdowns. 206 of which he thinks against his Bengals. Obviously a joke. Rice then went to point to the Super Bowl ring that he was wearing on his middle finger. Obviously, he was just showing off his ring, but how he did it left some 49ers fans laughing.

Many Niner fans complain about the obvious bias that Collinsworth has against the San Francisco 49ers due to the team costing him a chance to own Super Bowl rings himself. The 49ers beat his Bengals in Super Bowls XVI and XXIII.

ESPN analyst Mel Kiper unveiled his latest mock draft, projecting the 32 selections of the first round. For the first time since 2021, the San Francisco 49ers own a first-round selection and could use the pick to bolster the offensive line or the defensive backfield. However, Kiper has the team going in another direction. He proposes adding a pass rusher to complement defensive end Nick Bosa on the opposite side. Kiper's pick for San Francisco is Chop Robinson of Penn State. Kiper wrote, "It has to be offensive line or edge rusher for the 49ers, right? They need to find

Graziano: Salary cap situation may force 49ers to consider trading Brandon Aiyuk

All eyes will be on Brandon Aiyuk's contract situation this offseason. As the San Francisco 49ers cleaned out their locker rooms last week, the wide receiver was asked if he hopes to remain with the team that drafted him, to which he replied, "If that's the right move, yeah." The "right move" means securing a contract extension that places Aiyuk among the highest-paid receivers in the NFL. The 49ers have already invested significantly in Aiyuk's teammate, Deebo Samuel. But can they afford to retain both? Aiyuk is entering his fifth NFL season, and the 49ers exercised the fifth-year option for the receive, keeping him under contract through the end of the 2024 season. If the

Cam Newton: 49ers' Super Bowl loss due to 'bad coaching'

While former NFL quarterback Cam Newton hasn't wavered in his opinions surrounding San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy, who he said played "good enough" for the Bay Area team to beat the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 58, he is directing blame for the loss elsewhere. "Field goal versus touchdown, that's not Brock Purdy," Newton said on his "4th and 1" podcast. "Why the [expletive] did they receive the ball first? It was Tony Romo who mentioned this—when you know what you have to get, now you have four downs to get it, not three." Newton added, "The 49ers, they were just trying to get points. And that is not Brock Purdy's fault. That's bad coaching. There was too many people who was exposed. They didn't know the real rules of

Report suggests 2024 salary cap could near $250 million

By David Bonilla

Speculation surrounding the 2024 salary cap indicates that it might be in the area of $242 million. That's the number that salary-cap site OverTheCap.com has been working with, which, according to their estimations, puts the San Francisco 49ers about $12.38 over the projected cap. The team could obviously use more wiggle room to sign wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk to a long-term deal. San Francisco may need to either restructure the contracts of some high-priced stars or make some difficult roster decisions to make that happen. RELATED: Graziano: Salary cap situation may
